Sugar Cravings; Sugars in foods; Why we crave sugar!!

Friday, May 26th, 2017
Good morning! Challenges with maintaining our weight throughout life are going to be constant and inevitable. Sugar is constantly in the news lately – yes, manufacturers of our food deliberately add the exact amount which makes us addicted! No wonder it’s so challenging.
Diabetes in Australia is increasing at such a rapid rate that it’s estimated that 50% of us will have dementia by the age of 50within 25years – and diabetes is a major cause.  This is ridiculous!  We’ve modified our food, DNA and genes so much these days our cells become primed to develop chronic illness such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease so much earlier in our bodies than even 30 years ago.
May favourite 3 products for sugar cravings are:
1. Bactrex and Ultra Flora SB Dysbiosis – for underlying candida, fungus, bacterial infections that make us want to eat sweets (they love a sweet, acidic environment!) 3-6 daily depending on the severity and combination of the infections.
2. Gymnema tablets – known as ‘the sugar killer’ in Indian – it’s a herb which over a period of time makes our tongue need less sweet. Long-term (2 year) studies have shown pancreatic cells regnerating with gymnema use. 4-6 daily when sugar cravings are bad.
3. Resist X – definitely a favourite – contains herbs and nutrients which reduce insulin resistance (pre-diabetes); increase cellular energy and work on eating away our tummy fat. 2-6 daily depending on energy levels, tummy fat stubborness, sugar cravings.

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.

Stem Enhance & Natural Cellular Defence for Multiple Sclerosis & Parkinsons Disease

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Is your life, or the life of a loved one, hampered by chronic auto-immune conditions?

At New Leaf Natural Therapies we have had great success with auto-immune diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.  Hope truly is out there if you have these, or other auto-immune disorders such as fibromyalgia, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, hashimotos & Graves Disease and much more.  Our practitioners and team have a combined 60 years experience within the natural therapies industry, and plenty of experience with auto-immune diseases.

Interestingly, the experience our practitioners and I have had as newer, stronger and more effective supplementation is much available, has been even better.  We utilise detoxification products (auto-immune conditions are heavily linked with heavy metal toxicity) and products which increase the production of stem cells, products which balance the immune system (as auto-immunity is like having an ADHD immune system – overworking to attack specific cells in the body).

We provide the following tests for people with chronic auto-immune disease:

  1. live blood analysis: looking at immunity, anti-oxidant levels, invisible toxicity, sluggish or overactive immunity, essential fatty acid levels and more;
  2. acidity levels – the more acidic the body is the more risk of chronic disease, the more minerals are ‘pulled’ from the bones, nerves, muscles and brain;
  3. reasons for auto-immunity – gut issues such as leaky gut, helicobacter, candida, celiac disease, insulin resistance.  All of these conditions increase inflammation and toxicity levels in the gut, and the gut is home to over 70% of the immune system;
  4. BMI, fat mass & muscle mass readings with Cellular Analysis: if the BMI (body mass index) is over 30 then inflammation continues unabated in the body regardless of the amount of anti-inflammatories (natural or drug) are being taken, so working on the BMI is imperative.

So the treatment involves working on inflammation and acidity, the immune system, weight issues, toxicity levels, gut and liver health. Wow, can it be done???  It sure can, ask about our payment plans for saving you money on our programmes today!
