HCG Update…when it DOESN’T work…

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Well, now we have a few people kicking into action with the HCG, and it’s working so well!

But, do you know why it the HCG Process doesn’t work for some people? The Homeopathic RFM HCG Drops that we stock are fantastic. They absolutely (we have technology to prove this) help people maintain their muscle mass, muscle quality and cellular energy throughout the process when it is done correctly.

HOWEVER, we have found several things on other websites that interfere with the HCG Weight Loss Programme that need to be looked at:

  1. Toxicity: if we are adding toxins to our bodies during the process (diet softdrinks, lots of black tea and coffee, artificial sweeteners, low joule lollies and gums) then it’s another toxin our body needs to remove. Weight loss kicks detoxification into action anyway – many times we find that people are removing cancer-forming substances such as cadmium & aluminium, dodgy oestrogen,

Health Issues for Children: we can help!

Friday, May 25th, 2012

Children’s health is anything but simple these days. A mothers instinct often tells us one thing, but then we are told the opposite…

Following doctors and societies instructions – having anti-biotics, vaccinations, breast feeding whilst on anti-depressants or other medications, giving medications such as Ritalin and dex-amphetamines, using drugs such as steroids daily… All with our vague knowledge of the side-effects but being told everything’s going to be okay.

We have many years experience in working with children’s health problems successfully. Take a look around you, and it seems like every second family has a child with some major health problem going on…

  • Cancer of all types
  • Skin issues – eczema and dermatitis, rashes and hives, acne and scarring
  • Allergies – hay fever and sinus problems, tummy upsets, diarrhoea and constipation, ADHD
  • Autism and aspergers
  • Dyslexia and Learning problems, auditory integration issues, problems with maths and spelling
  • Behavioural issues, concentration problems, poor memory
  • Childhood anxiety and panic attacks
  • Asthma, bronchitis, poor immunity

Phew!! What a list! Honestly, we are happy to support any child’s health and vitality with any child with any condition. With our combination of experience and expertise we can put together a programme to suit your child and help health and happiness come as quickly as possible.

We use a combination of techniques that help us to help your child:

  • NOT Neural organisational technique: this is a process that helps reorganise the neurology of your child, head to toe.
  • LEAP Learning enhancement acupressure programme: this is a specific programme for the brain – which targets areas of the brain and helps them to function more easily…
  • Allergy Assessments: we use diagnostic tools which help to improve immunity and reduce inflammatory reactions to substances causing symptoms in the body such as hayfever and sinusitis, ADHD, eczema and dermatitis, tummy upsets and chronic exhaustion
  • Naturopathic supplements that help to boost the bodys nutritional status and heal faster

We can help! Call us on 3348 6098 to make an appointment…

Still suffering panic attacks? Try another tact…

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Here are a few ideas that you may not have thought about in relation to panic attacks.  Taking medication such as anti-psychotics and anti-depressants can be terrible for our health long term.  There is another way…

1.  Mitral valve prolapse:   can be one of the leading causes of panic attacks.  Medically if this is diagnosed, then we can help you with products such as Stem Enhance and MetacardQ10.  The combination of these helps to repair the heart (over a period of 6-12 months).  As the valve is ‘sling-shotting’ backwards because it isn’t sitting correctly, it affects an amazing amount of nerves which can create panic attacks.

2.  Thyroid disorders, Graves disease particularly, but Hashimotos as well:  Thyroid disorders can create so many symptoms – weight loss and gain, anxiety and stress, many types of pain, gut symptoms such as bloating burping belching wind flatulence, tiredness or manic moods.  All of these thyroid disorders are supported, corrected or reversed with natural therapies, fantastic products that help to calm the nervous system, improve immunity and thyroid function and quell the other symptoms.

3.  Adrenal gland stress … A huge thing we specialise in treating at new leaf… We use a combination of nutritional and herbal supplements along with kinesiology and micro current technology to relax and regenerate the adrenal glands

4.  Acid reflux/GERD:  when our gut isn’t working properly, our nervous system is very stressed. There’s a massive connection between the enteric nervous system (the gut) and the sympathetic nervous system (the brain).  We do natural allergy therapy to settle the gut down when it’s overactive, kinesiology to reactivate the organs, supplements to support healing and intuitive energy healing to remove genetic and old stressors.

Tried all of these things??

If not, give us a call!  Let’s start your journey back to health…

Allergies Autism Aspergers Asthma ADHD and Anxiety in Kid

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

1 in 6 kids have allergies
1 in 50 boys now have Autism
1 in 88 children now have Autism (girls & boys together)
1 in 14 kids have anxiety
1 in 9 kids have asthma

not to mention…the children with learning problems, ADHD, ODD, ADD…

Now these are scary Australian Statistics!  Released in June 2011.

Now what is going on that we have things going wrong in our kids health – many things are to blame, but in reality, it’s a combination of things that will be adding to the stress in our children:

  • IF the liver doesn’t cope, we don’t release toxins.  Toxin build up is indicated.
  • Women stressed during pregnancy – stress makes us acidic, increases adrenalin and can exhaust immunity.  This can be a factor.
  • Dodgy gut function – for examply DPP4 enzyme deficiency… this can create opioid effects in kids that can change the function of the brain – anxiety, panic attacks, ADHD, Autism and Aspergers, not to mention normal dyslexic symptoms.
  • Structural imbalances – birthing issues, jaw aches, growth spurts

We use a combination of Kinesiology, Naturopathy, Live Blood, Homeopathics and Flower Essences at our clinic…

  • we love kinesiology at our clinic we use it for many things such as:
  • emotional stress
  • dyslexia, ADD, aspergers, autism
  • structural problems
  • post vaccination treatment and detoxification
  • picking up the body’s energy without needles
  • We also use Frequency Specific Microcurrent for reducing local inflammation in any tissue
  • We use musculo-skeletal therapy and massage to reduce stress and pain in the body’s tissues
  • Bowen Technique and Lester Cox Techinique

Come in and see us.  How can we help your child?

Dangers of Fast Detox – Heavy Metal release from Fat Mass!

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

I’ve just done my third round of HCG, and have been getting regular kinesiology sessions throughout the process.

Brown fat is amazing – it gives plenty of energy, nutrients and calories, so that generally we feel good doing the HCG process…

However (there’s always a however, isn’t there??) this round of HCG, Norm Todkill (a fab kinesiologist at our clinic) found that my brown fat was holding 2 particularly nasty substances:

  • really dodgy oestrogen – the type that causing breast cancer
  • cadmium and copper!

So, it’s just something to be aware of…  get into the water – bigtime!!!!  Perhaps as a precaution, have a kinesiology balance regularly throughout the balance to make sure your body is eliminating the toxins properly!  You don’t want to become a skinny-toxic person!!  We have the RFM HCG Drops in stock now!  Enjoy…

Let’s Talk Allergies!!!

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Aren’t allergies annoying!  They can make the best day the worst in a flash…  How do you suffer?

We treat individuals, not allergies!  But we have had success with:

  • hives, welts
  • eczema
  • dermatitis
  • acne
  • tummy pains: bloating, burping, belching, wind, flatulence, diarrhoea, cramping
  • hayfever and sinusitis
  • ADHD or hyperactivity
  • Chronic fatigue, mood swings, aches and pains from head to toe…
  • Asthma, bronchial asthma, stress
  • Depression, anxiety, panic attacks

Seems like a big list, doesn’t it?  But these are the obvious symptoms of allergy that people really understand.  But allergies can be linked to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, aspergers, autism, you name it, it can be affected if your body doesn’t cope with a substance…

Now medically, the AMA and TGA have decreed that natural therapies can’t treat allergies, diagnose allergies or improve allergies in any way, however we find in our clinic with a whole-body approach we get great relief from the symptoms…

Would you feel better getting through hayfever season more easily?
Would it be easier if you didn’t need to go to the toilet 10 minutes after eating spices?
What about those welts that appear every time you mow?

We look at the individual – so many things are linked to allergies:

  • the body being too acidic:  there’s a white blood cell (that we find in live blood screenings) that nature has designed to drop acid on half-digested particles that have ended up in the bloodstream.  This morning I saw a young, vital man with 21% of eosinophils in his blood (it should be less than 4%), but his only symptoms are tiredness and crankiness…  We need to find his untreated, unfound substances that are lowering his body’s energy – they’re probably not allergies, but there’s definitely something going on!!
  • poor digestion – dairy and wheat are classic – the dairy and wheat ‘particles’ are about 8 x larger than what should be released into the bloodstream – no wonder so many people have an immune response to these substances
  • toxicity – the more toxic our body is, the more overloaded our body becomes and the more dysfunctional our detox organs become.  Our detox organs are the gut, the immune system, the kidneys and liver, not to mention the skin and the lungs!

There are so many things that lead to allergies, this is why natural therapies are so good for treating the underlying CAUSES of allergies, not the allergies themselves:

  • by boosting the gut and liver function the body will be able to eliminate toxins more easily, break down foods more easily and start to regenerate and heal correctly
  • using kinesiology to reduce the stress associated with allergies. How often has someone you’ve known has an asthma attack under stress, a hyperactive outburst when the stress gets too much, or had diarrhoea when you hear bad news…
  • using live blood screenings and cellular analysis and various urine tests to find kidney function, acid levels, dodgy gut bacteria levels…

Give us a call, and start the process!!

Have you tried New Leaf’s approach to allergies?

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Do you suffer from allergies? Taken a bucket load of anti-histamines in your life? See the coming of change of seasons as time in your life when you’ll be in pain and suffering for weeks on end – or are you watching someone in your world suffer every day and can’t find a solution?

We use a combination of processes/evaluations at New Leaf Natural Therapies so that we are looking at the whole you. Did your allergies start with an emotional trigger? Did they kick into action with a house-move, change in job, when you did renovations? Was it after an operation when your resistance was down.

All of these questions, and more, can be useful in determining what to do to support your body in dealing with the allergies you suffer.

We may offer/suggest any of the following for our clients:

  • live blood screenings – our trained practitioners can point out the level of inflammation in your body – signs of issues associated with the gut, the liver, cell membrane inflammation, dehydration issues and immune system compromise.
  • different kinesiology treatments which can help reset the amygdala (stress re-activation), reduce fight and flight response to allergy, boost all the major organs of the body so that allergies are much less likely
  • specific therapies to individual allergies such as homeopathics and flower essences to support reducing the body’s inflammation caused by a specific allergy.
  • naturopathic supplements to boost immunity, reduce inflammation, reduce gut and liver stress and detoxify toxins such as parasite/bacterial particles which create an allergic environment.

Below is a short list (there are literally thousands) of things that can be looked at over a period of time at New Leaf – it’s amazing how once the immune system starts being more functional, how so many symptoms can improve.

Substances we work with at New Leaf are…

  • pollens, grasses, weeds, trees, flowers, dust/dust mites, cats & dog allergies
  • sugar, wheat, dairy, nuts, eggs, shellfish
  • fruits, citrus, salicylates, amines
  • flavours, preservatives, MSG, colourings, chlorine, fluoride
  • minerals, cosmetics
  • latex
  • herbs and spices
  • paints, plastics, smoke
  • medications
  • nightshades
  • caffeine
  • plastics
  • yeasts, soy


Signs and Symptoms of Allergy

Sneezing, itchy eyes, itchy nose, congestion, post nasal drip.

Itchy skin, dry skin, skin rashes.

Bloating, cramping, burping, flatulence, indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea.

Headaches, insomnia, hyperactivity, ADHD, irritability.

Muscle pain, weakness, fatigue.

Lupus & Other Auto-Immune Conditions – A Naturopathic Perspective

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Lupus & Other Auto-Immune Conditions – A Naturopathic Perspective

Auto-Immune conditions such as lupus require balance throughout life.  Medically the options are limited:  harsh medications that don’t actually fix the underlying causes (and clog up the major organs of the body so they’re are more dysfunctional), but there is SO MUCH WE CAN DO to help to balance the body and keep the symptoms as minimal as possible.

1.  Look after your gut: 70-80% of the immune system  is in the gut – Lupus/Auto-immune conditions occur when the immune system is overstimulated into attacking certain tissues of the body.  In other words, the body can think that your skin, or your thyroid, or your ligaments and tendons are a virus or bacteria and then the immune system works hard to kill it!!  That’s why we feel so dreadful when an auto-immune system is in full swing.

Keys to looking after your gut:

Know your allergies/intolerances
Find out if you have DPP4 enzyme deficiencies
Are you gut enzymes working to break down sugars, carbohydrates, proteins and fats?
Is your pancreas balancing your blood sugar on a daily basis?
Has your body dealt with old viruses and viral particles?
Do you have leaky gut/gut permeability?
Is there heavy metal toxicity in the gut, that is shutting down the enzyme release from the gut?
Vitamin D deficiency is one cause of leaky gut – getting some sunshine daily?

2.  Decrease stress in your world: what are your major stress triggers?  Stress is one of the intangible causes of auto-immune conditions.  Stress can shut down your gut, overload your liver, make it really challenging to balance your blood sugar, increase your adrenal stress and shut down your thyroid and so much more.  Stress is huge and finding a way to deal with it daily it crucial with chronic health conditions such as auto-immunity!  Try the following:

Yoga and meditation
Kinesiology balancing to help eliminate old stress patterns and boost immunity
Relaxing Massage has been found to increase feel good hormones and lower pain levels
There are supplements that can be prescribed that help to destress the nerves, balance the hormones, boost feel-good hormones and more
Sleep – a good night sleep is so important to maintain good health, immunity and wellbeing

3.  Full Filter Detox: It is so important to keep your body’s filtering mechanisms as functional as possible throughout life.  The immune system is one of the filters – for the body to kick an auto-immune system into action, our filters can’t have been working properly…  The core filters of the body are the digestive tract (stomach, small intestine, large intestine), liver, immune system (crucial in cleansing the blood every second of every day) and the kidneys.  If these are dysfunctional it’s not hard to imagine our body will be filling up with toxins and our immune system will struggle!

Testing Processes we can do to keep on top of our health:
Live Blood Screenings:
with this fabulous technique we are looking at red and white blood cells – your red blood cells make up 1/4 of all the cells in your body – we can see instantly immune dysfunction, liver stress (fibrinogen), signs of leaky gut, signs of parasites and more…  Just 1 drop of blood.
Urine Tests: Multisticks and Urinary Indicans – these urine tests allow us to find out if we are digesting our proteins, if we have an underlying infection, if our kidneys are fully functional or struggling, if we have too much bad bacteria in the gut and more…  Simple.
Candida and Helicobacter Tests: are there underlying issues such as these causing problems that we don’t even know about?
Kinesiology for allergies/intolerances/energy mismatches/DPP4 enzyme deficiencies – find out what foods should be in your world and what shouldn’t.  There are so many intolerances where the only symptom is the auto-immune condition itself.  We can help you target your diet to be the best it can be.
Insulin Resistance Testing: we are one of the few places who test for insulin resistance.  Doctors check for blood sugar and don’t even think about diabetes until it’s through the roof.  This test finds pre-diabetic conditions early, and then we know how to fix it!
