LEAP Assessment: What do we do?

Friday, June 7th, 2013

LEAP Assessment

LEAP (Learning Enhancement Acupressure Programme) is a process based on core neurology of the brain.  We use a muscle monitoring process which has been used on tens of thousands of people to find which areas of the brain are functioning, and which aren’t.  We initially do an assessment on your or your family member and find where the deficits are:

  • where is the logic in the brain?
  • where is the gestalt/visual-spatial part of the brain?
  • what is the dominant hand? eye?
  • how much function is there in some connecting pathways?
  • are the visual memory areas of the brain functioning?
  • how is comprehension?
  • how is problem solving?

Our process has been developed by Dr Charles Krebs over the past 28 years.  Charles is a researcher who’s life has been working towards helping people reach their potential, finding the ways of testing and correcting neurology imbalances that stress us when we are trying to do something new.  Charles’ book ‘A Revolutionary Way of Thinking’ was released over 10 years ago and really gives a great understanding of the brain, its potential, what shuts down its potential – it’s a great read!

What stresses you in life?

  • bookwork
  • paperwork
  • your kids homework
  • helping your child to do their maths or spelling
  • feeling like your child just isn’t remembering properly? (It feels sometimes like they’re just not trying!?)
  • stress in exams
  • stress in meetings
  • stress in front of a room full of people
  • avoidance of anything new
  • anxiety? depression? panic attacks? behavioural changes at school/work compared to at home?
  • memory – walking into one room and not being able to remember properly

These are the type of issues that the LEAP Programme helps to correct.  It is aimed at helping people reach their potential – the potential of their individual brain!  Not everyone is an Einstein (not that we’d want to be) but we can always find ways of improving the way our brain works.

Quenching cortisol and reducing inflammation – turning back another reason for weight gain…

Monday, October 29th, 2012

From an HCGer:      I like your statement on inflammation and cortisol switching off your thyroid. I did not know this. Besides HCG, what else can you use to reduce inflammation and turn on the thyroid again. I take Turmeric

Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory – the types and usefulness depends on the grade, quality and dose taken.  Some aren’t great.  We love the type of turmeric in liquid herbs as well as products (stocked at New  Leaf) such as Inflavonoid Intensive Care.

Switching down cortisol and stress hormones, which create inflammation, can be achieved by a combination of several herbal combinations and nutritional formulas.  Herbs such as passionaflower and valerian, skullcap, Californian poppy, withania, Siberian ginseng, licorice, rehmannia, oats – are adaptogenic herbs – they tone the nerves and adrenals, quench cortisol, reduce inflammation caused through the nervous system.

B Complex supports adrenal production, Magnesium and Calcium both bind nervous system neurotoxins and calm it down.  We love products such as CalmX which settles cortisol and has huge doses of magnesium, calcium and B complex in it.  It’s great for people with panic attacks too…

Products such as Adrenotone quench cortisol, support adrenals and boost thyroid function, Neurocalm, Resilian (teariness, lack of emotional resiliance), Relaxan (PMT, hormonal imbalances, irritability and high stress levels), Stressan (poor sleep levels, anger, excess ‘chi’ in the body, can’t settle down), Adaptan (panic attacks, emotional exhaustion and anxiety), Proxan (depression, anger, crankiness and poor sleep) all settle cortisol levels.  Neurocalm calms the nervous system and improves sleep quality.

You can’t switch ‘on’ the thyroid without turning down the adrenals/cortisol switch.  It really need to be done simultaneously.  Iodine and tyrosine are both required to make thyroxine.  Bladderwrack is a herb high in iodine, all seaweed sources will have some iodine.  Products such as Metagenics Thyrobalance, Mediherb ThyroCo, Thorne Iodine & Tyrosine, Metagenics EnergyX and Adrenotone all support thyroid function.

Different products work in different ways and have effective treatments for different symptomatology.

Let us help you get your nervous system back on track!

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…

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…

Stem Enhance: we have plenty in stock in our clinic… in Wynnum, Brisbane

Monday, September 27th, 2010

Have you heard of Stem Enhance? It’s an amazing product that we have been using clinically for about 3 1/2 years.  Stem Enhance has been found to increase the stem cell production from your own bone marrow:  4 million extra stem cells within 40 minutes.  When taken together with StemFlo, those stem cells are then taken to the area in the body with the most inflammation – the brain, the heart, the liver, the joints, the spine – whereever is needed most, and then these stem cells BECOME the type of cells they attach to.

We have clients who have used stem enhance successfully for many health conditions including Parkinston’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Injuries, degenerated joints, osteoporosis, enlarged and damaged heart and more…  Not to mention that it’s a fantastic preventative!  Other issues such as anxiety and panic attacks improve, as do things like stroke side-effects, old concussions, whiplash and joint pain, neuropathy and thyroid issues.

Basically, stem cells can become ANY TISSUE in the body that needs repair!  And since chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, dementia, alzheimers and diabetes are all inflammatory conditions – these may be prevented by taking some simple supplements.  Talk to us today!!!

Natural Support for Anxiety & Panic Attacks, Wynnum Brisbane

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

There is so much natural support available today for anxiety & panic attacks at our specialist naturopathic clinic in Wynnum, Brisbane.  Natural supplements and treatments work for anxiety and panic attacks, no doubt about it.  The length of time it takes to get it under control depends on how long the condition has been there and how deeply ingrained it is, but it’s time to get started.

Anxiety and panic attacks are linked to a fragmented nervous system. Under stress, there is a lack of connection between conscious and unconscious parts of the brain, the neurotransmitters don’t function properly, we get put into a ‘deep survival pattern’ where the brain simply can’t see things clearly.

We help anxiety and panic attacks with a multi-faceted approach.  Natural supplements which tone the nervous system, calm the stress hormones (cortisol, adrenalin and noradrenalin), increase feel good hormones (serotonin, gaba, dopamine) are crucial.  The brain is often inflamed due to toxic stress hormones, anesthetics, drug residue, vaccine toxins, pesticides and herbicides, plastics and more.  We have tests to find out if these are important to be dealt with.

Kinesiology and Frequency Specific Microcurrent are part of our approach for ridding the body of anxiety and panic attacks.  Old triggers and stressors can be activated at a moment’s notice when the brain feels the same emotion, stress or hormone.  Kinesiology and Frequency Specific Microcurrent effectively reduce the number of stress patterns in the brain.

We can definitely help with Anxiety and Panic Attacks:

  1. calm the nervous system
  2. improve brain function
  3. reduce old stress patterns
  4. relax with meditation and/or yoga classes
  5. deal with other health problems which may be linked

Talk to us today about getting your anxiety and panic attacks under control.
