Air Quality & Our Health: Madonna Guy Naturopath

How the Air Quality of Where You Live Affects Your Health

If your home is close to the freeway, you could be putting your health in jeopardy.

This article from the U.S. is well written and gives great ideas about supporting your health!  Madonna’s thoughts:

  1. there are herbs which support the lungs, sinuses and airways
  2. there are anti-inflammatory nutrients and herbs that can be used to support better breathing under stress
  3. Vitamin D is important for every cell in your lungs!
  4. Old infections can create low level inflammation that adds to your risk of sinusitis, hayfever, allergies and asthma
  5. Overuse of steroids suppress the mucus in your lungs to the lower lobes – over years of use we end up with less capacity in the lungs – chi nei tsang can help loosen the congestion in the lower lobes of the lungs
  6. Overuse of Anti-biotics has been shown to destroy the villi in the intestines and lead to lung conditions – there are nutrients and probiotics specific for re-growing the intestinal villi
  7. Biofilms can build up in the lungs and intestines – and hold old infections – which are released in a mutated form when we are run-down
  8. Our Food Detective shows 60 food intolerances that are causing inflammation in your body – this can be done within a 60 minute consultation with our naturopaths
  9. Glutamine, vitamin A, vitamin D are all crucial for healing the gut and lungs
  10. Kinesiology, Acupuncture and Chi Nei Tsang abdominal massage all support better immunity, better lung function, less allergies and less inflammation

The Los Angeles freeway system was designed to get you where you need to go fast (well, more likely in tons of traffic). But it also has had unintended consequences for the health of people who live near the busy roads — especially children, who can suffer lifelong consequences as a result.

The health risks of air pollution.

First, some good news: The USC Children’s Health Study, one of the largest research projects into the long-term effects of air pollution on children’s respiratory health, has found that, overall, kids’ lungs have improved in the past 20 years in the LA area. Bronchitis symptoms have also declined. This is all due to improvements in air quality, as policies to fight pollution were put in place and emission levels from vehicles declined.

But, it’s still clear based on the study’s findings that children who live in areas with more pollution have poorer lung function, reduced lung growth, more asthma and greater lung damage than kids who live in areas with less pollution. The air quality is definitely the cause, as lung function improves when kids move away from these areas. Plus, days with higher levels of air pollution lead to more respiratory infections that result in more school absences.

More negative health outcomes discovered.

Kids aren’t the only ones at risk. USC Environmental Health Centers notes that high levels of air pollution near freeways can cause high blood pressure and gestational diabetes in pregnant women. It could also lead to more cognitive problems in their babies. In teens, another USC study showed pollution particles can affect still-developing brains and increase delinquent behavior. In adults, another USC study found that preventable heart disease deaths are a direct result of living near a major road. Living near air pollution can lead to more cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks and stroke, and premature death as a result.

Urban living or the suburbs?

So how close is too close? The state Air Resources Board recommends against building homes within 500 feet of freeways, although the LA Times reports that this is happening anyway. The City Planning Commission has even warned against building 1000 feet from a freeway and notes negative health consequences as far as a mile away. (Check out how your home fares with the LA Times’ interactive map.)

In some ways, urban density can have environmental benefits — living close to public transportation hubs reduces the number of cars on the road. Better air filtration systems, vegetation barriers and other anti-pollution measures may help new buildings that are close to busy freeways. But experts still agree that living farther out has current benefits for your health, even though you have to drive a greater distance to get to where you want to go. In general, the farther you are from the freeway, the less pollution poses a risk to your health.

But besides moving, what else can you do to protect your respiratory health if you live in an urban environment with pollution? Monitor the air quality by visiting the Environmental Protection Agency website airnow.gov. You can also sign up for email alerts or download their app. Or, check out the World Health Organization’s air quality website, breathelife2030.org.

Follow these tips to keep safe when air quality is low:

  • Stay indoors as much as possible in a building with air filtration. At home, close the windows and use an air conditioner with a HEPA filter, or use an air cleaner/purifier, especially in your sleeping space.
  • Keep your home clean of particles by using a vacuum with a HEPA filter, and a wet mop on floors. In general, carpet is going to hold onto more dirt and dust, so bare floors are better.
  • Don’t use a fireplace, smoke or light candles.
  • On your commute, see if you can go in off-rush hour. Try taking back roads or, if you walk, go through a park.
  • Take off your shoes as soon as you get inside, and change your clothes.
  • If you exercise outdoors, skip mid-afternoon on warm days.

Colds Flu Bugs! Let’s get well!! 2018 Winter Specials (use by 31st August 2018)

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Are you trying to prevent the flu this year?  Trying to avoid the Flu Vaccine?

Let’s think about what it means to get sick…

…  it means your immune system is lowered.  Herbs and nutrients help to boost white blood cells – your immune system – so you can fight infections faster.

…  being sick ripens your immune system.  Each time you get unwell, and NATURALLY boost your immune system, and NATURALLY  get well afterwards, you then have this immunity for the rest of your lives.  Vaccines give no long-term protection – which is why it’s recommended each year.

…  looking at your blood (Book in at New Leaf – winter special is only $199 for 1.5 hours with Georgia or $219 with Madonna) will give you an idea about how worn out, exhausted, challenged your liver, gut, immune system is…

…  Big enough doses of vitamin C (anywhere from 3-20 grams daily) has been shown to kill viruses… increase daily until you hit bowel tolerance – vitamin C.

…  We have herbal nasal sprays that have essential oils and xylitol which will help to locally kill infections and break down old biofilm / mucus that’s holding old infections in the sinuses.  These infections are reactivated once we’re exhausted and run down – and our immune system is compromised.  We also have herbal throat sprays which do a similar thing in the throat – locally kill infections.  Obviously, we still need to boost the immune system as well, local infections (sinuses, lungs, throat, gut) are just a sign that the overall immune system isn’t working well!

…  Probiotics – there are very specific strains of gut probiotics that boost immunity.  The regular strains are not the ones proven to boost immunity – see us for specific strains that raise the gut immune system

…  Herbs all have different ways of working for us:  there are herbs that are mucolytic, herbs that tone the lungs and sinuses, herbs that boost immunity, herbs that settle the cough, herbs that kill viral infections, herbs that destroy bad bacteria….  once again, think probiotics as well!

…  Stress will reduce the immune system – we find that sometime unless that stress is lessened (or resolved) the immune system will never improve.  All of our processes (OligoScan, Blood, Acupuncture, Kinesiology, Naturopathy, Massage) can all find reasons for stress and help to support lowering it.

…  Acupuncture helps to boost immunity, tone the lungs, boost energy to and from our bloodstream and lymphatic systems…  Book a series of immune boosting Acupuncture sessions for only $89 each!  Mention this special!!!

…  Kinesiology helps to find blockages stopping your immune system from functioning properly…  1/2 hour Immune Boosting Kinesiology for only $99 with Georgia or $119 with Madonna

…  Naturopathy / Kinesiology combo with Georgia only $149 for 1.5 hours!

…  Hot Stone Massage heats the body, which of course, is nature’s way (fever) for killing infections.  We have infrared saunas too!!    Book up to 3 x 1.5 hour Hot Stone Massages for only $99 with Shelby!

…  Frequency Specific Microcurrent can target the immune system, lymphatic system and boost these cells to detox faster!
