HCG: Diarrhoea on HCG

Saturday, November 24th, 2012
Diarrhoea on HCG:  not too common, but happens occasionally.
Why would HCG create diarrhoea??  Well, a couple of things that we’ve found:
1.  HCG may stimulte gall bladder function (because we’re releasing so much fat daily) – bile is a natural laxative;
2.  Releasing fungus and candida from the intestines (because we’re eating cleanly, we sometimes detox automatically) – fungus and candida love living in a sweet, acidic environment.  We’re also eating so many vegetables that for some lucky people they are working on detoxification processes with the natural ‘broom’ through the intestines…
3. Detoxification of heavy metals, drug residue, pesticides, stress toxins – fat tissue stores toxins.  Because we are releasing so much brown fat during HCG, we are releasing toxins of many types of nutrients and toxins into the bloodstream.  Depending on how nasty the toxins are we can feel dodgy (stressed, tired, nauseus, unwell, wired) and how much nutrition is stored (iron, B12, folate etc) we can feel amazingly energised on HCG.  Sometimes these toxins are so nasty our body will do anything in it’s power to release them from our bodies.  Diarrhoea is a small price to pay for this process!!
Things to do:
Liver and Gall Bladder Function:  Lipogen 1-2 tablets per meal
Diarrhoea Specific Gut Flora:  Ultra Flora SB Dysbiosis 2-6 daily depending on how bad the diarrhoea is
Bactrex, Costat and Parex:  Supports killing bacteria, parasites, candida and fungus.
Ultra Probioplex:  When we’re killing off bacteria, parasites, candida and fungus it creates inflammation.
Ultra Probioplex is one of the supplements that helps to ‘sop up’ the inflammation caused by killing these bugs!
Detoxification Processes:  Waiora NCD, Oxidant Protection, Meta B Complex, Silymarin…
Resetting your valves:  Kinesiology ‘ NOT ‘ technique (which we do at the clinic) is a process which  boosts digestive and liver function, resets your digestive valves, and finds reasons for the valves being dysfunctional…
Good luck!

Q. First Few Days on HCG: Madonna’s comments

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012
From an HCGer…
Hi, I am on day 5 (including 2 loading days) and have lost 2kgs, however today I have a bad headache and am really hungry. I have just taken some panadol but am struggling today. My loading days I ate HEAPS but was thinking the whole time I wasn’t hungry and wasn’t craving anything. Now of course every time I turn on the TV there is a food as and I want it!!
Madonna’s Comments:
1. Headaches are due to detoxification… the body is releasing toxins from the fat tissue, and our body is struggling dealing with it. Drink heaps and heaps of purified water.  In our clinic we have infrared saunas (an hour is recommended on HCG), kinesiology protocols that support detoxification, raindrop technique (essential oil technique), and energetic healings, all of which support the body’s lymphatic system and major organs to eliminate toxins faster.  Lipoic Acid (4 daily available at New Leaf) is both a fat soluble and water soluble anti-oxidant – in other words it sops up toxins from both the blood and the fat tissue.  It’s fantastic for HCG.  It also helps with blood sugar balancing which can be a major cause of headaches on HCG.
2. Hunger: homeopathic drops take different amounts of time for different people to kick in. It’s only day 3 on the VLCD, some people take up to day 5 before homeopathic drops kick in. Make sure the drops are away from eating, drinking, coffee, cleaning teeth, and keep away from electrical appliances.  We use products such as Resist X to settle down the hunger – drink heaps of filtered water, gymnema settles hunger and sugar cravings, chromium helps to create energy within the cells – there’s lots we can do for hunger!
3. Panadol: do the best you can, but obviously your adding another toxin to the body which will have to be dealt with.  Hopefully it will only be the first few days for these headaches – let’s us know whats stored in our fat tissue doesn’t it??
4. Have a treatment with Norm or Kat and start balancing the hormones – getting them to kick the hypothalamus into action might be a possibility from the kinesiology perspective as well. Kinesiology can re-connect the hypothalamus with many parts of the body so that it speeds up the process of supporting HCG to kick in as quickly as possible.
5. Resist X: 2 tabs 3-4 x daily – if you need it, it increases cellular energy, gets the sugar activated properly within the cells (supports insulin resistance) – great for hunger on HCG.  One of my favourite supplements for clients on HCG.
6. Kinesiology for food sabotage… can also be used to help your brain and body settle down into the hcg process..  HCG is a process that helps to re-frame our food tendencies, and helps us deal with sabotages, bad eating habits, munchies…things that we may not even be aware that we’re doing!  Kinesiology, energetic healings, reiki, raindrop technique all help to settle our nervous system down.
7. Raindrop Technique: essential oil technique performed by Rachel that kicks the nervous system into action.  Gives energy.  Settles the adrenals and cortisol levels so that hunger may be normalised.  Good luck!!!  Total bliss, either an hour of Raindrops Technique or 1.5 hours of Raindrop/Reiki combination.

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!

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
Georgia Kilpatrick 8 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….

Detox Support Naturally…

Monday, September 17th, 2012

A common story about one of our clients…

Had a client who, using another weight-loss programme lost 33 kilos, incredibly close to her goal weight now. Fantastic right? Well, not so much. Exhausted. Bloated. Aching. Worn out. Allergies. Not sleeping. She had been so excited about getting back into exercise, which she hadn’t done for so many months.

We did a VLA / bioimpedance analysis and found signs of massive levels of toxicity, inflammation,…fluid retention, LOW LEVELS OF MUSCLE MASS, and poor quality muscle tissue. TOO MUCH FAT MASS… So this is called Sarcopenia. This is when we have too much fat, not enough muscle and the body acts as though it is obese.

Imagine 33 kilos of fat mass, releasing all of the toxins, acids, hormones – that had been dumped into the bloodstream and gut over those months…

Without nutritional support for detoxification and VLA’s to monitor the progress – she now has a condition likely to create more health problems.

What did we do for the client below who became toxic after weight loss (not using HCG – but there may be some gems in here for anyone on the weight loss journey)…

It was predominantly her ‘gut’ that was upset after her weight loss – no exercise in many many months, a very low calorie high protein, low carb diet (which loses muscle mass) – BUT she felt great throughout the programme – totally committed and it never occurred to her she would feel like crap once she finished and started re-introducing other foods back into her world. So we are:

1. Using G-Tox (Green formula which is heals leaky gut, alkalises the body, pulls heavy metals from the blood stream, cleanses the kidneys and boosts gut immunity)
2. We’re adding in digestive enzymes. Her gut has totally forgotten how to break down any foods – so we’ve added Digestaid which supports digestion of carbs, sugars, proteins, fruits…
3. We’re supporting liver support. When the gut is shut down, we simply reabsorb toxins back in through the liver. We added Silymarin (liver detoxifier) to start binding with these toxins and support removal from the body.

Other supplements I love for HCG, depending on a person’s individual health issues are:
** Estrofactors or Meta I3C – these are for those who have had oestrogen issues in the past – fibroids, cysts, PMT etc
** NCD Waiora Zeolite – A fully-cleansed form of zeolite which detoxifies the worst toxins from our bloodstream first
** Oxidant Protection – If we do a live blood screening and see toxicity issues – we use this as a fantastic anti-oxidant to remove anti-nutrients!

Weight Loss Stalls on New Leaf’s Homeopathic HCG Fat Loss Process…

Friday, August 24th, 2012

What causes weight loss stalls for many days on the HCG weight loss programme?

HCG works.  Even if the weight on the scales aren’t showing it, biochemically you’re body is probably changing inside for the better.  The RFM HCG Drops support cleansing of the body, as does the simple, easy very low calorie diet.  We find this consistently (using bioimpedance VLA technology to monitor our clients), however stalls do happen – here’s some ideas why…

1.  Assuming you’re drinking plenty of healthy, filtered water, as the fat cells empty they can fill up with fluid, therefore the overall weight can stay the same
2.  If the body has hit some toxic fat that is holding some nasty toxins that have been there for a long time, the fat has become ‘calcified’ to protect our body from the toxins.  Fat tissue neutralises or stores toxins.  The body has to work away at breaking down this tissue – plenty of green tea, detoxificiation nutrients that stimulate metabolism such as Thermoburn and Silymarin help to speed up this process and allow the detoxification safely
3.  Infrared saunas can shift this:  infrared saunas help to break down calcification, move lactic acid, stimulate fat metabolism and help all the detox processes
4.  Check your diet… go back to basics (make sure you are ONLY doing fruit, veg, protein from Dr Simeon’s original list)
–   1 protein per meal 100g raw (and only the proteins on the list):  two meals per day
–   1 vegetable per meal (minimum 2 cups) – do not mix your veg:  two meals per day
–   increase your water intake
–   make sure you are only having 1 black coffee daily – more than that may dehydrate your cells, slow down your metabolism and shut down weight loss
–  1 grissini twice daily OR 1 melba toast twice daily OR 1 rice cracker twice daily
–  1 serve fruit, twice daily
5.  Quite often when weight isn’t shifting we see changes biochemically in VLA bioimpedance analysis anyway…  fat mass may be shifting from ‘brown fat’ to ‘normal fat’ – ie moving it from deep inside the body to being available to use.
6.   We sometimes see the body is much more hydrated – more fluid inside the cells, so the body ‘weighs more’.

7.  I know Dr Simeons (who died 40 years ago) said the only drug that upset the process with Oroxine, Thyroxine – thyroid medication.  However, there are some incredibly nasty drugs around these days that simply weren’t around at the time.  Who knows how these impact??

8.  Inflammation – the more inflamed your body is the more we may need to support your system with natural anti-inflammatories that don’t stop/hinder the weight loss process – inflavonoid intensive care, kaprex etc

9.  Insulin Resistance – if the cells have been insulin resistant for many years – you may be releasing more insulin from the cells than your body can handle – Resist X is the type of product that would help with energy and insulin resistance.

Do an apple day.  Maximum of 6 apples between 12pm and 8pm.  Have a Bioimpedance VLA Analysis or a Live Blood Screening done so that we can monitor your progress and see what’s truly going on in your body.  Trust the process and do it correctly and your body will surprise you!

Good luck!!

Natural Support for Cancer

Friday, August 17th, 2012
  • What can New Leaf do for cancer?? I often get asked “Do you treat pancreatic cancer”, “Do you treat kidney cancer”…  As natural therapists we support the body – and the person – behind the cancer.  We support people going through conventional medicine (chemo, radiation) and simply help with healthy diet, nutritional and emotional support.

    People end up in a state of shock with any diagnosis… but I’m healthy. I exercise. I look after myself…  All of that is often true, however cancer has still taken hold – something has gone wrong.

    The standard things we consider with our cancer clients are (all cancer has the same cause and effects deep inside the body)

    1. BMI – keeping it under 25 – Obviously many people gain weight as they get older – and the BMI over 25 starts putting us in an inflammatory state … cancer is inflammatory in nature.  Working on maintaining health – reducing inflammation – cancer risks and may be reduced. HCG and Shake It Weight Loss Programmes are fantastic for shifting weight that’s built up over a lifetime.

    2. Acidity levels – urine acidity and saliva acid…should be 7ish… the lower it is (closer to 5) puts us in a higher risk for cancer, osteoarthritis, osterporosis. Cancer doesn’t just magically appear in our bodies. It takes at least (usually) 4 years to develop – requires lots of genetic mutations, acidity, less than adequate nutrition to appear. Acidity may be caused by many things:

    Parasites, bacterial and fungal infections
    Nutritional deficiencies and insulin resistance
    Food allergies and intolerances
    Stress
    Weight gain

  • 3. Iron, B12, folate – optimal levels.  B12 and folate are now known to support repairing DNA/genetic disturbances (in therapeutic doses). These nutrients also support methylation in the liver – when this pathway doesn’t work we have a higher risk of heart disease. DNA changes can be reversed with big enough doses of MetagenB12/folate, Stem Enhance and anti-inflammatory substances such as MetaPure EPA/DHA. Anesthetics bind with B12 and make it unavailable. We then need doses (2000-4000mcg daily) in order to 1. Pull out anesthetics and 2. Start the DNA repair process. Less than that simply doesn’t cut it.4. Heavy Metal Toxicity.Heavy metals are positively charged. They create inflammation in the body. Cancer is negatively charged. When there is cancer in the body we always find heavy metal toxicity. This is crucial. There is always toxicity where there is cancer. Radiation, chemo and anesthetics may add to the toxic load, this is where supporting the body with juicing, healthy food and diet, nutritional support may be helpful in getting the body feeling great again.5. Thyroid levels. Nearly everyone comes is ‘yep my thyroid is fine’. However, TSH within normal range isn’t perfect, it just isn’t the point where we need medication yet. TSH over 1.84 is letting us know the thyroid is becoming sluggish – the thyroid is pumping out hormones way more than it should, and that just about any organ in the body can be struggling because of it. If the thyroid is sluggish it may slow down liver function (detox) gut function (absorption) DNA repair and maintenance.

    So that’s just a few thoughts about different things that we can work with long term to create a healthier body where you’re less likely to get another cancer. Chemo, operations and radiation are obviously toxic… working with a natural therapist you trust can help get the body into a healthy place again!

    Good luck!
