Far Infrared Sauna – amazing health benefits!

Monday, March 18th, 2013

Perspiration is recognised by health practitioners worldwide as perhaps the most effective method of removing both difficult chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body. The combination of “resonant absorption” and low heat makes this the detox method of choice for chronically ill patients as well as those that are well and wish to stay that way by reducing their “toxic burden”.

As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder to boost circulation, thus improving your cardiovascular system. Your immune system is also strengthened because when your body temperature is raised, your systems fight this “artificial fever”. Sweating helps detoxify your body, by removing the accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium and excess cholesterol. Profuse perspiration also deeply cleanses the skin, improving tone and helping to treat skin conditions.

Hippocrates, the founder of modern medicine wrote more than two thousand years ago “Give me the power to create a fever, and I shall cure any disease.” During a fever the functioning of the immune system is stimulated, whilst the growth of bacteria and virus is forced to slow down. Fever is the body’s natural defense against bacteria, viruses and microbes. Heat triggers the production of infection-fighting  white blood cells. The result is immune system improvement. The generation of antibodies speeds up, as does the production of interferon, an anti viral protein that also has powerful healing properties.

Far Infra-red sauna is one of the most effective forms of heat treatment it’s technology allows the radiant heat to penetrate the body rather than heating the air in the sauna. It is also better tolerated by those who have trouble with the intense heat of traditional saunas as well as producing  maximum health benefit with lower ambient heat. As the pores in the skin open up millions of sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. Sweat contains almost the same elements as urine and for this reason, the skin is sometimes called the ‘third kidney’. It is estimated that as much as 30% of bodily wastes are eliminated by way of perspiration.

Far Infrared Sauna:

  • Is well tolerated by most healthy adults and older children.
  • Boosts immune function and is helpful for those who are limited in their ability to sweat through exercise due to lack of energy or physical limitations, such as injury of back pain
  • Is a viable and efficient means of eliminating toxins from the body, thus allviating any symptoms realted to increased toxic burden
  • Can help lower high blood pressure
  • Can be helpful for patients with asthma and chronic bronchitis.
  • It decreases pain and increases mobility in patients with rheumatic diseases.
  • Is beneficial for people with chronic fatigue and low immunity
  • Supports skin health and helps to treat skin conditions

 

 Always remember to re-hydrate following heat therapies, drink extra amounts of water throughout the day.

The healing journey with New Leaf

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Embarking on a health journey is a brave move to make. It means looking at the issues you may have avoided for a while and facing them head on. It’s a process that is often scary yet can also be richly rewarding. When you are the best version of yourself you can be, you can really shine and be there for those close to you.

It can be said that it’s a means of coming back to your basic self  – seeing your body as a precious temple and paying attention to what you really need. It’s treating yourself gently and gaining a greater connection to the whole of you – body and mind. As one of my favourite authors Sarah Avant Stover puts it – the only way out is in and through. To go through our health issues rather than going around them is the only real way to back to balance and health.

At New Leaf, we are committed to your success in this process. We know it’s yours, to go through in your way. Offering a harmonious range of therapies, we seek to find the real cause of your health issues and guide you back to balance and health.

We see your journey to optimal health as a partnership between yourself and us. Thus, we have a few suggestions for you in order that you get the best results from your treatment with us:

  • Eat a fresh, wholefoods diet. When you eat fresh, vital food, you feel just that. Everything we eat nourishes our cells. If we consider that the body is really the only vessel we have to take us through this lifetime, it makes sense to nourish it with the best food possible.
  • Drink a minimum of 2 litres of pure filtered water daily. Besides hydration, there are countless benefits of drinking adequate pure water. Improved energy, detoxification, digestion, skin condition and weight loss are just a few.
  • Limit caffeine, or better still, cut it altogether. Caffeine creates extra work for your liver, and can place stress on the adrenal glands and nervous system. It also promotes dehydration and in the long term, fatigue. There are many delicious herbal teas and coffee alternatives available in supermarkets and health food stores.
  • Sleep 8 hours a night. While sleeping as little as possible in modern society is often considered admirable behaviour, the truth is, it promotes premature aging, weight gain, can increase stress and complicate many other health issues. It may require changing your usual routine a little, but getting 8 hours of quality sleep a night is an investment in your health.
  • Spend a few minutes a day alone, doing some quiet breath awareness in a comfortable seated position. All you need do is focus on your breath with your eyes closed. This can have wonderfully beneficial effects on your nervous system, improving mood, reducing stress and creating calm. A calm body heals well!
  • Increase body movement. This means different things to different people. Start with where you are at in terms of your current physical fitness, and do what feels right for you. Even if it just means adding incidental exercise by taking the stairs instead of the lift, walking to a colleague’s desk rather than emailing, or taking a short walk before or after work. Start where you are at the moment and build gently from there.

These are simple steps you can take today to improve your body’s ability to balance and heal. You can do one at a time, a few, or all of them, whatever feels right and good for you. It’s up to you.

We look forward to supporting you in achieving a state of greater health.

Back to School Assessment: with NOT and LEAP assessment

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Are you sick of people telling your kids are lazy? Not paying attention?  Not focussed?  And you know something’s going on with them?

Is your child stressed about going to school, feeling picked on or stupid?

There is help available – and NOT drugs or years of counselling…  we are specialists in this area and have many many years of experience…

We do a combination of treatments in our clinic that can help your children:  NOT (Neural Organisational Technique); LEAP (Learning Enhancment Acupressure Programme) and FSM (Frequency Specific Microcurrent) which can help to determine and correct, what’s going on in the brain of your kids.

What does this mean?

We can FIND and CORRECT:

  • Issues which have been there since birth: poor oxygen to certain parts of the brain; jammed cranial bones; poor nutritional supply to the brain due to caesarian sections; anesthetics still in the system due to epidurals and anesthetics.
  • Old Stress Patterns that are Hindering the Ability to Learn: once a child has been repeatedly in trouble for ‘being lazy’, ‘not trying hard enough’, ‘feeling like the class idiot’, their body starts shutting down as soon as they go to do something they’ve failed at in the past.
  • Vaccination Side-Effects: some children don’t cope with vaccination toxins.  It can (in susceptible children) hinder liver function, brain function, immune system function…
  • Neurological Switching: sometimes the brain simply isn’t sending information to the correct areas, or ‘switch off’ crucial pathways and functions (for example logical thinking) under stress.
  • DPP4 Enzyme Deficiency: means that certain foods may be acting like ‘opioids’ in your childs brain and stopping or hindering brain function, making them tired and stressed and unable to cope or learn.

Sound like you or your children could do with a session!??  We have a Learning Enhancement Programme which will save you lots of $$$ per month if you believe this programme would be good for you or your family.

Alternative Therapies Picked On Again… Alternative Therapies and Cancer Patients…

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Note From Madonna Guy ND
Chief Clinician New Leaf Natural Therapies
Wynnum, Brisbane, Australia

I hate articles like the one below…  The heading indicates that a doctor using alternative therapies ‘killed’ 5 patients by using these alternative therapies.  When you read on it was ‘crazy therapies’ she was using – “concoction of minerals, industrial solvents and paint stripper” – okay, so they’re alternative but this is NOT the way naturopaths like us work!!!

We can absolutely help cancer survivers in so many ways:

  • supporting the immune system
  • maintaining healthy weight through programme
  • finding genetic defects with our live blood analysis and working to reverse them
  • detoxification of the chemicals such as chemo and radiation that are known to stay in the body for many, many years…
  • kinesiology for the stress and re-booting of immune systems, detoxification pathways and endocrine systems
  • pain protocols with frequency specific microcurrent
  • lymphatic drainage massage and infrared saunas to help the detox process

Ah well… read on!

THE Australian doctor at the centre of a coronial inquest into the deaths of five cancer patients who received an alternative therapy in her Perth home has disappeared.

Counsel assisting the coroner Celia Kemp yesterday told the inquest they had been unable to serve Alexandra Boyd with a summons to give evidence.

Dr Boyd’s lawyer, Richard Lawson, also said he could not find her. “I don’t know where Dr Boyd is,” he said. “I haven’t heard from Dr Boyd for weeks.”

Mr Lawson handed deputy coroner Evelyn Vicker a letter from a clinical psychiatrist, which was not read to the court. He said he had not been able to speak to the psychiatrist either.

The five patients had received a concoction of minerals, industrial solvents and paint stripper while being treated in Dr Boyd’s Mosman Park home in 2005. They later died, some after vomiting green fluid and suffering chronic diarrhoea. It was part of a treatment promoted by disgraced doctor Hellfried Sartori, who trained in Austria and was later deregistered in several US states, and served jail time in the US for practising without a licence.

He was not registered to practise medicine in Australia either, but the inquest has heard he gave instructions to staff at Dr Boyd’s home from Thailand. Registered nurse Merrilee Baker yesterday told the inquest that when she worked at the home she thought there was no risk in injecting patients with the chemicals, but she had since changed her mind.

Dr Kemp asked Ms Baker why staff had administered peppermint for nausea and not taken the temperature of a patient, who was later found to have developed a serious infection and died.

She questioned why Ms Baker had administered intensive intravenous treatment on the oral orders of another nurse acting on instruction from Sartori.

“I’m suggesting you were aware what you were doing was not consistent with accepted nursing practice,” Dr Kemp said.

Ms Baker said she would be “very wary” of acting on oral orders again, but said patients had received a “higher” level of care than they would have in hospital.

What Do We Do?

Naturopathy is a system of healing that aims to provide holistic or whole body healthcare by drawing on treatment methods from several traditional systems of medicine. Naturopathy seeks to use the natural healing powers of the body to cure itself. It focuses on treating the cause of a disease rather than the symptoms themselves. In the past naturopathy was described as an alternative medicine; however there has been such a massive amount of scientific research in the past 20 years that it is much more mainstream these days.

Good health and wellness is what naturopathic treatment is all about. The main emphasis of naturopathic practice is the belief that the body has an inbuilt ability to strive for health. The role of a naturopath is to work with a person to promote the natural healing of the body. Naturopathy is rooted in the belief that health is more than just the absence of disease and works on strengthening the body’s natural defences.

Just about all disease conditions can be supported through naturopathic supplements and treatments.  There is very little that our team hasn’t treated, and with such a range of practitioners, testing facilities, treatments and skills available, you and your loved ones are in good hands.

Our naturopaths are Doug Newitt and Madonna Guy

Kinesiology: We have kinesiology techniques for just about everything!  Kinesiology is a tool (like acupuncture but without the needles) that helps to find and correct imbalances in the body.  It has been developed over the last 60 years and utilises a combination of techniques – chiropractic, acupuncture, Chinese philosophy such as meridians, chakras & other energies, counselling and brain neurology.

Choosing a kinesiologist at New Leaf is easy:   we all have different skills and different knowledge base to work from, and you simply book in with the practitioner that feels right for what you are going through. If you need to see someone else afterwards, we’ll let you know (your body will tell us!!!)

Norman Todkill is a very gentle kinesiologist who brings many years of massage therapy and biochemistry skills and knowledge to your treatment session.  Norm is very calm and has an ability to gently move through big issues and help to alleviate stress and pain from your life.  With the combination of NOT/kinesiology skills he can find out exactly what supplements your body needs, so that you get on track sooner!  Norm’s balances are often very energetic in nature and clients often ‘feel’ his energetic healings. Norm also uses kinesiology to perform allergy testing, allergy treatments, endocrine balances and structural balancing.

Katherine Lynn  has a wide variety of kinesiology skills and is continuing to add to her skill base regularly.  Her technique moves through a variety of nutritional balancing, energetic healings, structural balancing, emotional issues and she can help you to thread together the issues from the past which are creating current health issues – emotionally and structurally. Kat is also being sought out as a kinesiology teacher – you’re in great hands with Kat.

Madonna is more structurally based than Kat.  Madonna’s areas of specialties are NOT and LEAP.  NOT is Neural Organisational Technique, a process which helps to realign the spine, remove whiplashes and cranial injuries, rebalance the foot and ankle muscles, hips and shoulders and more.  LEAP is a learning enhancement process which is great for brain integration.  It works through a series of parts of the brain and gets them working one by one.  Both NOT and LEAP are programmes which take time to work through, but are worth the energy.  3 sessions of LEAP do more for the brain than a year of counselling!  3 sessions of NOT is worth 3 months of chiropractic!

An example of our Kinesiology ‘Balances & Treatments’ are:

Allergy Assessments: a protocol to find substances: foods, pollutants, additives which are causing health issues

Allergy Re-training: helps to re-set the body energetically so that it may handle allergens/intolerances better

Celestial Circuit Balancing: do you feel like yourself?  Feel beside yourself?  Your centre of gravity may be out of balance…  this is an incredibly powerful technique to bring your energies back into centre…

Emotional Diffusion: the ability of kinesiology to find old emotional patterns and ‘diffuse’ them.

Endocrine Balancing: a specific balance (from NOT) which re-sets the endocrine system – supporting all of your endocrine organs:  adrenals, thyroid,

Heart Healing: when something has happened in your life, which colours every single thing that you do, a heart healing may be appropriate.  It is a huge balance, aimed at increasing your level of ‘consciousness’.  For high level stress.

Immune System Balancing: this improves the function of your immune system, activates your immune system and reduces stress.

LEAP:  a protocol (over many sessions) which progressively works through areas of the brain.  Memory centres, working memory, auditory pathways, visual pathways, balance mechanisms.

Neural Organisational Technique: a process which systematically works through getting better ‘neurology’.  Can help spinal pain, whiplash, scoliosis, jaw & hip problems, feet issues, shoulder pain & more.

Nutritional Balancing: the body can get confused about what it needs nutritionally.  This process works systematically through the minerals & ensures your body is accepting/utilising them.  Often it’s stress that shuts down our absorption.

Whiplash Correction: long term whiplash issues can be resolved through this process. Whiplashes can start long term health issues such as Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia.

Hypnotherapy/Neuro-Linguistic Programming:  this combination, performed by Norm, is exceptionally relaxing, and similar  to kinesiology helps us deal with, and cope with, stress, addictions, weight loss, fear and/or anger issues, OCD, anxiety, sleep issues and more.  It works through the subconscious to

Our Massage Techniques

Reflexology is a natural healing therapy, based on the principle that there are reflex points in the feet, hands and ears (the feet are most commonly the primary area of application), which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. The body is treated through application of pressure on these reflexes without the use of tools, crèmes or lotions. reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.

Reflexology is able to help with many things, such as;

  • Constipation/Diarrhea
  • Impact on physiological measures (Cholesterol, blood pressure etc)
  • Poor blood circulation
  • Respiratory problems (asthma, allergies)
  • Post operative recovery and pain reduction
  • Mental health issues (depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder)
  • Pregnancy (easier childbirth, delivery, post-partum recovery)
  • Stress
  • All over muscle pain and tension
  • Sleeping problems

Aromatherapy uses essential oils which are aimed at improving a person’s health or mood. Many consider this type of treatment as unscientific and wishful thinking – however, scientific evidence of its effectiveness is growing. The essential oils used in aromatherapy have a different composition compared to other herbal products because the distillation used in aromatherapy recovers the lighter phytomolecules.

The theory behind aromatherapy:  It is believed that the inhalation of essential oils stimulates the part of the brain connected to smell – the olfactory system; a signal is sent to the limbic system of the brain that controls emotions and retrieves learned memories. This causes chemicals to be released which make the person feel relaxed, calm, or even stimulated. If the aromatherapy includes massage the effect is to further relax the person.

Remedial massage: When muscles become knotted and tense or damaged, remedial massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the body. The massage therapist endeavours to identify the original biomechanical dysfunction, thus healing the cause of the disorder, as well as the symptoms. Remedial massage uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage to muscles, tendons and joints. Massage therapy supports and speeds up the body’s own repair mechanisms. A lubricating edium (usually oil) is applied directly on the skin. This ensures that the muscles associated with the disorder are deeply penetrated. Passive joint stretching moves are also used.

Hot stone massage: Hot stone massage is a fabulously relaxing massage utilising lomi lomi massage and flat hot stones used in various positions on the body in order to relax, rejuvenate and pamper!

Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Very few practices in Australia have FSM and even fewer run FSM sessions the way we do!!!  FSM is a gentle, yet effective tool, originally developed for pain relief with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.  In the 80’s disc regeneration was developed as well, and since then much research has gone in to perfecting many, many pain protocols.

The technology is similar to MRI scanning – but FSM is used for healing and not for diagnostics (great, huh???)

We have programmes specifically for FSM, and most of our naturopathic programmes include 20-80% off FSM treatments.

Reiki/Intuitive Energy Healing

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” (on or over the body) and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Chronic Neck Pain – natural solutions & treatments…

Chronic Neck Pain – natural solutions & treatments…

Are you sick of spending lots of money on trying to get long term solutions for your chronic neck pain?  Part of the problem may be that specialists only look at their area of expertise – understandable, but not wholistic!

We can provide a 6 point solution to your neck pain:

  1. Musculo-skeletal therapy/remedial massage to relax the muslces and nerves;
  2. Frequency specific microcurrent to reduce the spinal cord inflammation, reduce the inflammation within the discs & joints and support the healing;
  3. Infrared sauna (penetrates 4-6cm inside the body, acting like a ‘heat pack’ all over):  these heat the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments and bones allowing the body to release toxins and inflammation;
  4. Structural kinesiology to ensure all of the muscles are ‘switched on’ and working properly, make sure the body is structurally aligned correctly and the spinal cord, tailbone, neck and cranial bones are all aligned correctly.
  5. Emotional kinesiology works to release fight and flight patterns that compress the spinal cord, tighten the jaw, create pressure on the cranial bones, throw the shoulders and hips out of whack, and more!
  6. Naturopathic consultations/supplements to provide nutritional, herbal and homoeopathic support to help your body relax long term.  We will prescribe high potency, purified supplements to regain the health of your body and to stop the downward slide into further chronic pain.

Best Plans Available at our clinic to save you money…

  • Remedial Massage Plan (1 pre-paid massage per month); extras highly discounted!
  • Chronic Pain Plan (2 pre-paid frequency specific microcurrent treatments per month); save lots of additional treatments!

Frequency Specific Microcurrent for Nerve & Muscle Pain in Wynnum, Brisbane

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

Frequency Specific Microcurrent is an exciting new way of treating nerve and muscle pain and many other conditions using specific frequencies and micro amperage current.

We use FSM to create miraculous changes in patients to reduce pain and improve health. Most of the time FSM produces immediate dramatic changes in tissue that make it an indispensable tool in treating pain and many other health concerns.

For example, there is one frequency that is only useful for shingles and herpes. In acute shingles conditions  it eliminates the pain and prevents the blisters from breaking out. In herpes outbreaks it eliminates the pain and heals the blisters in hours with only a two hour treatment.  Depending on how many viral particles have been released into the system, a 2nd or 3rd treatment may be necessary if the shingles has been around for some time.

This frequency combination is only good for this purpose and is not useful for anything else. We have not found anyone it does not work on or any other condition for which it is useful. The frequency to reduce inflammation reduces inflammation in a blinded animal study more effectively than any drug ever tested in this animal model. No other frequency reduced inflammation at all. The frequency specific effect is remarkable and reproducible.

There are government restrictions on what we can say, report or claim as an effect of the use of microcurrent as a device for the treatment of any condition other than a general “treatment of pain” statement.

Microcurrent instruments are all approved by the TGA under the general class of “TENS” devices even though microcurrent is 1000 times less current than TENS.

TENS devices can only make claims about general relief of pain. This doesn’t change what we can do; it changes what we can say about what we can do. All references to clinical effects other than simple pain control refer to frequency resonance effects not the effects of microcurrent.

We have Chronic and Acute pain programmes which save many $$$ per month – ask today how you can improve your pain levels with Frequency Specific Microcurrent.

Allergy Testing for Kids… Wynnum, Brisbane

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Did you know that there’s a safe and easy way to have your child checked for allergic tendencies AND that there are things we can do to help live a healthier lifestyle?  Allergies can cause so many health issues which scare the hell out of parents and caregivers:  eczema and dermatitis, anaphylactic shock, swollen throats and lymphatic nodes, constant colds and flus… not to mention issues such as autism, aspergers, ADD, ADHD, asthma, which are on the rise, and very definitely linked to the messages we are sending our bodies via our foods…

No wonder we give our kids drugs to get the symptoms under control when our gut tells us it’s not doing them any favours.

There IS stuff we can do to help our kids allergies, intolerances and sensitivities:

  • we use live blood analysis to find out many things including how useful the immune system is, how the liver is functioning, if the bloodstream is cleansing properly, nutritional levels of iron, b12, zinc and oxygen…
  • we use kinesiology balancing techniques to pick up the body’s energy and help it heal, especially in relation to specific allergies and intolerances
  • we use frequency specific microcurrent and infrared saunas to help pull toxins from the body so that it can function more effectively.

What to do for Foot spurs, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis…

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

It’s amazing to me how many people ring me on 4BC to ask about foot spurs, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis…  It seems to be a very important, painful, and debilitating issue for many people in Australia.

Firstly, we need good connective tissue support so that the foot can heal and repair properly.  Nutrients that can be used are things like silica, magnesium, calcium…  Products that support connective tissue support:  Metagenics Arthrex; BioCeuticals Silica liquid; Metagenics Cartrin; Blackmores SCF; Metagenics Glucosamine Intensive Care.

Secondly, ensure weight is optimal…  carrying excess weight puts huge amounts of pressure on the feet, and they will of course, be inflamed over time.  Foot spurs, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis and natural side-effects of long term weight issues.  See us about our fat loss programme which has a fantastic success rate and saves you money long term.

Thirdly, structural balancing can be very beneficial:  in our clinic we do:

  • remedial massage to increase blood supply to the extremities
  • structural kinesiology to balance hips, knees, ankles, feet
  • foot manipulation to ensure all the bones of the feet are in correct positions
  • frequency specific microcurrent to help to break down calcification in the joints

So, there really is plenty of help for heel spurs, foot spurs and plantar fasciitis.  Call us today to book your appointment!
