Success for Fertility – Why Choose New Leaf Natural Therapies?

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Ferility Issues?   for BOTH men & women…  50% of the DNA comes from each parent!

At New Leaf Natural Therapies we’ve been treating fertility issues for over 15 years…  there is a reason why we do so well with fertility…  we have the experience, the treatments, the knowledge and the passion to support any and all reasons for poor fertility!

Just a few major keys to infertility are:

  1. Fragmented sperm: this is a major reason for fertility issues in men.  It is linked with smoking, toxic professions such as mechanics & hairdressers, recent renovations or simply low levels of anti-oxidants in the bloodstream.  It’s a number 1 reason for male infertility over the age of 35.  This is not checked in regular tests – motility and numbers are regularly checked, but fragmentation levels aren’t (too expensive at this stage)
  2. Acid levels:  acidity causes fertility issues in both men and women… it’s linked with fragmentation in men, and in women it is a common reason for miscarriage.  When our bodies are acidic, the body assumes several things:  stress, survival patterns (not good for ‘holding’ a baby), less need for immunity and thyroid hormones
  3. Hormonal Balancing: this is crucial.  Taking a full history for both partners and finding out what is going on… thyroid issues, oestrogen/progesterone/testosterone imbalances, stress, pain…  All of these impact on fertility and must be addressed.  This is very different from what your doctors will normally take you through.  We are looking for perfect balance in hormones, not just adequate as in the normal bloodtests….

New Hope for Autism, ADHD and Aspergers

We’ve always had good success in support for kids with Autism and Aspergers.  Adults are tricker since change is a challenge and we’re all more set in our ways – but, it can be done!

Things we check for (using kinesiology/symptomatology) that can be supported…

  1. is there a DPP4 defect in the intestines? We can see simply and easily if it is working using kinesiology.  Many of the symptoms associated with these health issues can be supported by removing gluten and dairy from the diet.  It needs to be for 3 months minimum – and up to 85% of the symptoms may be alleviated is there is a DPP4 enzyme deficiency.  Worth trying, huh?  This defect means that wheat, gluten and dairy are not broken down properly in the gut, and the partially digested molecules end up in the bloodstream, creating an ‘opioid’ effect, basically acting like a drug in the body…
  2. Is there a metallothioneine deficiency in the liver pathways?  Once again, simple and easily found through kinesiology…  this pathway indicates the liver can’t eliminate heavy metals properly.  In combination with the DPP4 enzyme deficiency (which also converts non-organic mercury/heavy metals into organic/easily absorbed heavy metals) it means we have more heavy metals in the body AND we can’t rid our bodies of them.  These heavy metals build up in the brain and nervous system, stopping the brain from working properly!
  3. We use a combination of kinesiology (from brain integration) and microcurrent (for detoxification and healing) along with nutritional support for our clients with Autism, ADHD and Aspergers.  It takes time, but the journey is worth it…   We would also recommend Infrared saunas to speed up the process of detoxification so that life can become more normal as quickly as possible.

Slowly but surely, the treatment of Autism, ADHD and Aspergers is about getting the gut right, supporting the liver, detoxification of the body, liver and brain…  the statistics show that these disorders are increasing at the speed of light…  let’s get healthy!

Deep Tissue/Remedial Massage at New Leaf Natural Therapies (Wynnum, Brisbane)… Madonna Guy ND

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

We are continuing our tradition of fabulous Deep Tissue/Remedial Massage at New Leaf Natural Therapies…

Are you having pain in your neck? back? shoulders?  Let’s have a think about what’s going on…  the muscles are tightening, they are getting dehydrated and ‘gluey’ and they shorten.  They start pinching the nerves, start pulling the ribs out of whack, create nerve pain…  goodness me, given that 70% of Aussies have back and neck pain regularly – we could all do with a fantastic massage regularly…

Our massage therapists have lots of experience in different techniques that will start to reset your muscles back into normal shape.  Given their nutritional and naturopathic experience they may also recommend products that help with chronic pain such as:

  • Fibroplex for muscle pain and fibromyalgia
  • Kaprex for chronic pain
  • Inflavonoid Intensive care for acute pain..

It really isn’t that hard to get muscle problems, nerve pain, fibromyalgia on the right track to health.  We’ll probably recommend a programme which will even save you lots of $$$ too…  but that’s up to you.

Give us a call and book in with Doug or Kat on 3348 6098
