Why Kinesiology at New Leaf Natural Therapies

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Our Kinesiologists at New Leaf are all multi-skilled and have a combined 28 years experience in kinesiology:

Madonna Guy 20 years

Kinesiology is a process which helps us to access the innate knowledge within the body.  It’s hard to explain, but it uses muscle testing which accesses what your body needs to heal…  We can use kinesiology to support:

  1. Learning Problems.  Our practitioners do a process called LEAP and NOT which support better processing of information for our kids with auditory processing issues, dyslexia, ADHD etc
  2. Behavioural Issues:  We all support the nervous system to cope better with behavioural problems – there are many reasons for this, and kinesiology can help to target what’s going on with the brain, gut, immune system and start the process of rebalancing our kids…
  3. Endocrine/Hormonal Issues.  Within the processes of kinesiology there are ways to help to re-boot the hormonal systems of the body, which are often activated by a huge stress/trauma or a toxic overload of some sort.  Kinesiology can help to target the cells/organs which are dysfunctional and re-balance the energy in these organs.  Are you sick of Infertility? PMT? Pain? Being grumpy?  Depression?
  4. Immune Balancing:  There are kinesiology processes which support boosting the parts of the body associated with better immunity, thereby helping the body have less symtoms of allergy, intolerances, cold and flu…
  5. LEAP:  Learning Enhancement Acupressure Programme – this process helps to re-integrate pathways in the brain that are dysfunctional.  The entire process may take anywhere from 5-20 hours depending on how neurologically out-of-whack the body is.
  6. NOT:  Neural Organisational Technique – this process re-organises the neurology in the body and can be used to support structural problems such as jaw and hip pain, scoliosis, whiplash and neck problems, chronic back pain.  Just about all arthritis starts with an imbalance in the body.
  7. Energetic Healing:  When our energy is out of balance, ‘blockages’ occur in the body.  Kinesiology can target ”weird energy” like chakras, auras, figure 8 energies, negative attachments that are causing problems for you overall.
  8. Nutritional Kinesiology:  Do you absorb your food?  Supplements?  Protein?  Carbohydrates?  Sugars?  Kinesiology can find out which organs are affected negatively by your foods and supplements and help your body accept and absorb nutrition better.
  9. Toxicity Work:  We can use kinesiology to find the pathways in the brain, liver, kidneys which are being blocked by toxins such as lead, mercury, cadmium, aluminium…  This can cause chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, just about any health problem.
  10. and so much more….

Salicylate Sensitivities… Side-effects and Symptoms…

Monday, June 4th, 2012

So… you’ve been thinking you might have a salicylate sensitivity…  Many symptoms may be linked:

  • cystitis, urinary tract infections
  • rashes, eczema, hives, welts
  • itchy eyes, itchy skin, histamine reactions
  • asthmas, stuffy and runny noses
  • nasal polyps

We’ve also seen things like ADHD, ADD, ODD linked to intolerances and sensitivities…  Headaches and migraines, bloating, burping, belching…

Oh my goodness, the list goes on. And although we work with substances such as these with a combination of homeopathics, natural supplements, kinesiology techniques, microcurrent – we know we can work to boost immunity in the long term, thereby relieving symptoms and improving quality of life!

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…

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.
