Urinary Tract Infections – do we really need to take anti-biotics?

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Great question from a client today… ‘What can I do if I get a urinary tract infection, anything naturally? Can we avoid anti-biotics?’ Gabby, our intuitive energy healer also asked me the same question about 6 years ago, having been seeing me for many years. Interesting for me, this client has been seeing me on and off for 5 years (at a guess) and here’s the answer. Yes. We can treat anything naturally.

Urinary Tract Infections can be chronic, frustrating and stressful.  They can affects our relationships, our sex life, our fertility.  We can do urine tests to find out how active/nasty they are and live blood screenings to find out how much work we need to do to get your urinary tract health and happy again!

For example, there are great urinary tract herbs such as bearberry, buchu, crataeva and nettles, all of which help to take the pain and itch out of the urinary tract.  We would combine them with  immune boosting herbs such as golden seal, andrographis, Echinacea.

Vitamin C is a naturopathic must!  We need to flood the urinary tract with vitamin C – a minimum of 280mg per hour so that the excess goes straight to the urinary tract (kidneys and bladder), boosts the immunity, destroys the bacterial or viral particles that are attached to the bladder wall, and effectively stops the biofilm from building up and allowing old viral and bacterial particles to live in it, and wait until our defences are down and then they cause another infection.

NCD zeolite (fully-cleansed): also pulls viral and bacterial particles out of the body so our body doesn’t create ‘biofilm’ for the particles to live in, thereby creating a chronic low level infection that doesn’t show up in blood tests but causes problems.

There are many other things we can do:  Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage;  Boost the immune system with kinesiology; other herbs, other supplements & nutrients.

So yes, we can treat anything, and treat it well!

New Year HCG Weight Loss … Get your body back now!!

Thursday, January 16th, 2014
My journey … 2014
1st journal!
So I’m my first week down on HCG this year! After my 2 month binge period (Holidays, Christmas, New Year, Birthdays, Get togethers – lots of excuses!!)  I was 69.5 kilos. A lot of this weight was put on with lots of naughtiness: lots of sugar, overeating, Xmas goodies, lollies, alcohol, cheesecakes, treats (many many of them!)… This weight is very ‘dense’ and hard to move, but it’s shifting!

I’m doing the RFM HCG Drops 10 drops 3 x daily; VLA Bio-impedance screenings daily; supplements for my liver, gut, energy levels and lots …of saunas!

I did HCG half heartedly last year after returning from long service leave (long lovely holiday!) but didn’t maintain the weight, didn’t do consolidation and didn’t follow the diet propertly…  Ah well, lost about 5 kilos!
My favourite supplements (for me) on HCG are:
  • Thermoburn – supports abdominal tummy fat – really tough to shift.  1 tab 2-4 x daily
  • Ultra Flora Immune or Probex – increase good gut flora – crucial for helping to shift the toxins from the gut
  • Lipogen or Livatone – both liver and gall bladder support.  I suspect I have gallstones so I’ll need to do my gall bladder flush during consolidation (there’s lots of olive oil as part of the process so you can’t do it during HCG)
  • Lipoic Acid or Glutathione – supports fat and water soluble toxin release
  • Resist X – energy production when we’re feeling sluggish
  • Resilian or Relaxan to help me de-stress and sleep well

 The excess fat is 2-part on the Bio-impedance screening. It’s not only the ‘excess fat’ portion of the test, but it’s also the excess ATM, Active Tissue Mass, which is ‘tummy fat’ – very vascular and very hormonally dangerous. It’s the reason tummy fat is linked to heart disease, diabetes and cancer, not to mention adrenal exhaustion and thyroid issues.

Obviously the past 5 days my weight has been a challenge – purely on the scales, and yet the fat mass has continued to lower every day. I have more ‘fluid’ and ‘muscle’ in the body, but the fat mass is reducing.

This is why regular VLA Bio-impedance screenings are so crucial to keep us on track during HCG. Not daily of course, I can, so I do, and I love the numbers!

I’ll keep you posted…
