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!!

Allergy Testing, Wynnum, Brisbane…Madonna Guy ND Naturopath

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Allergy testing is something that there’s a lot of controversy about these days.  Many naturopathic clinics are being told that they can’t do allergy testing.  Weird, huh?  It seems to be an issue that the government has taken to heart, that only drugs can effectively treat allergies.

So what do we do if we don’t want to use drugs which suppress allergic symptoms such as sinusitis, asthma, hayfever, itchy eyes, itchy skin… not to mention issues such as bloating, burping, belching, wind, flatulence or more debilitating issues such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

Around 75-80% of babies are born with an allergic immune system these days.  Therefore they are more likely to develop issues such as food intolerances and allergies.  Partly this is because our bodies are much more acidic these days.  As this is a huge reason for miscarriage, the body deliberately goes into the opposite immune position to miscarriage, which is the allergic immune condition…

Our clinic has fabulous results with allergies and intolerances because we use a variety of testing and treatments.

  1. We use live blood analysis to determine how well the immune system is functioning.  There are particular signs in the blood that let us know if the body is more likely to be an allergic one or not.
  2. We use other blood tests such as candida, helicobacter and celiac testing to find underlying gut issues which predispose us to health problems such as allergies and intolerances.
  3. We use urine testing such as urinary indicans and ph testing to find out how much bad gut bacteria we have and how acidic the body is.  These can both be linked to poor immunity.
  4. We also use a variety of kinesiology techniques which lower the body’s stress in relation to a particular allergen – we can find whether or not things are alleries or intolerances, or even whether it’s just an energy mismatch – an energy mismatch is when the body doesn’t ‘know’ what to do with something.  For example, if we eat spelt flour for the first time in our lives, and the body doesn’t know what to do with it, we may get symptoms of bloating, but this may be because the body just doesn’t know what to do with it…  we can balance that out…

SIBO – Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

SIBO, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth is a reasonably new discovery, or at least has finally been proven within the medical and naturopathic fields.  For years naturopaths have worked on clearing ‘bad large intestinal bacteria’ with reasonable to good results, but when the intestinal growth is in the small intestine, instead of the large intestine, there are no tests which indicate where the infestation is, and results may not be as good.  Detoxification of the intestines has always been hugely important for preventing disease and illness, naturopathically.

The problem is that symptoms of gut issues: bloating, burping, belching, wind, flatulence, diarrhoea, constipation (irritable bowel syndrome) can be either a small or large intestine issue. 

For those of us who do kinesiology we are blessed with the ability to check where the overgrowth is (and it is often through the entire digestive tract) and what the infestation is made of: parasites, fungus, candida, bacteria, viral etc.  Thank goodness for kinesiology…

And of course, SIBO is hugely indicated in many health issues:  it has been found that 80-100% of chronic fatigue syndrome sufferers, as well as those with fibromyalgia suffer from SIBO – 80-100%.  i’m sure SIBO will be indicated in reversing chronic disease in the future.  It really gives a new perspective on treating the gut first – an old naturopathic adage…
