Starving Hungry on HCG Weight Loss Protocol???

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Chatting to a new client yesterday who really has had trouble with HCG in the past.

Not using the HCG that we use (which works brilliantly – RFM HCG Homoeopathic Drops), so I can’t comment on effectiveness, however, she starved the whole way through her previous 23 days, couldn’t do consolidation because she was so ravenous.  To me, this sounds like the drops weren’t working.  Pure and simple.  Homoeopathic drops are sensitive…

*  be care with them – keep away from electrical appliances
*  have 1/2 hour away from eating, drinking tea/coffee, cleaning teeth
*  give them a shake prior to each time you use them to re-activate them

Is it a problem being starving for the whole time on HCG if you can manage to work through it???  Absolutely YES!!!

*  If the homoeopathic drops aren’t working, then you are literally on a starvation diet
*  You will do all the things to your body that yoyo dieting does
*  You will probably lose muscle mass
*  You will probably lose minerals and quality from your muscle
*  This slows down your metabolism
*  This is why we end up with thyroid problems
*  Without the HCG Drops working, you will probably regain the weight you’ve lost, and more, due to the fact that your metabolism is slower, your body composition is worse (more fat, less muscle) and it takes some time to reverse that.


If hunger is more like insulin highs and lows / energy drops / ravenous for a short time, then our favourite supplement is:

*  Resist X.  2 tabs 3 x daily.
*  supports reversing insulin resistance
*  helps with stress
*  helps with energy
*  helps with sugar cravings
*  helps with PMT – type symptoms

As always, call or email any problems you may be having.  We do phone consultations (special offer – mention website and pay only $99 for an hour long consultation with either Phoebe or Rachel – fabulous bargain!)

Our team also offer many services which support HCG weight loss:

*  Infrared saunas (burn fat, release toxins)
*  Kinesiology for stress, counselling, blocked patterns, low energy, blocked energy, mood stabilisation
*  Naturopathy to support any underlying health problems
*  Abdominal Massage to increase flow of energy, blood supply, lymphatic supply to all your major organs  …  and more

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.

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….

Common Errors on HCG Diet…

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

The kit/diet is available at New Leaf AND
The RFM HCG Homoeopathic Drops are available at New Leaf on 3348 6098 (o7)

Support for HCG on Facebook:  HCG Weightloss Support Group
AND New Leaf Natural Therapies Group and Page

We’ve had over 100 people do HCG RFM Diet this year alone (and we’re 2/3 the way through the year!)… so we’re finding the mistakes people make:

  1. Using contaminated spices:  lots have herbicides or pesticides or are irradiated.  Some are past their use-by date.  This can be toxic to your body and cause fluid retention, and therefore weight stalls.  If you don’t detox these toxins, then they will store somewhere else in your body.
  2. Using spices that contain oils or sugars – this will add calories and stop you from losing weight.
  3. Not drinking enough water.  This is crucial.  2.5 – 3 litres daily – from water, herbal teas and other water-based drinks daily.  Coffee doesn’t count.
  4. Drinking too much coffee.  Some people cope with lots of black coffee on HCG, others don’t.  Coffee may stop your body from creating energy that so many people love during HCG and make you retain fluid, and add a toxic load to your system, thereby slowing weightloss.
  5. Forgetting to take supplements.  We recommend several (depending on the individual):
    **  Silymarin to support the liver (if you have a fat roll under the rib cage)
    **  ResistX to support insulin and fat removal from the bloodstream (if you have a below-the-belly-button-layer of fat)
    **  Multi-vitamin such as Femme Essentials or Meta B – definitely superior to most on the market
    **  Cascara to support bowel movements
  6. Eating fatty meat or exposing your hands, face or body to creams, fats and oils.
  7. Not doing your two Feast Days properly when beginning the programme.  They are important.
  8. Mixing vegetables at a meal.  Simeons is clear about eating only a single vegetable at each meal.  the only exception is green leafy vegetables which can be combined.
  9. Putting other things in your mouth, like gum.  Even sugarless mints, gums etc interfere with the Protocol.  Don’t use them.
  10. Drinking diet drinks – including diet soft drinks.  They are toxic to your body and cause you to gain weight, due to this toxicity.  Dont’ use them.
  11. Eating meats, veggies, starches in the wrong combinations (ie 2 veggies at a meal, 2 fruits at a meal, more than 100g protein at a meal…)

What Do We Do?

Naturopathy is a system of healing that aims to provide holistic or whole body healthcare by drawing on treatment methods from several traditional systems of medicine. Naturopathy seeks to use the natural healing powers of the body to cure itself. It focuses on treating the cause of a disease rather than the symptoms themselves. In the past naturopathy was described as an alternative medicine; however there has been such a massive amount of scientific research in the past 20 years that it is much more mainstream these days.

Good health and wellness is what naturopathic treatment is all about. The main emphasis of naturopathic practice is the belief that the body has an inbuilt ability to strive for health. The role of a naturopath is to work with a person to promote the natural healing of the body. Naturopathy is rooted in the belief that health is more than just the absence of disease and works on strengthening the body’s natural defences.

Just about all disease conditions can be supported through naturopathic supplements and treatments.  There is very little that our team hasn’t treated, and with such a range of practitioners, testing facilities, treatments and skills available, you and your loved ones are in good hands.

Our naturopaths are Doug Newitt and Madonna Guy

Kinesiology: We have kinesiology techniques for just about everything!  Kinesiology is a tool (like acupuncture but without the needles) that helps to find and correct imbalances in the body.  It has been developed over the last 60 years and utilises a combination of techniques – chiropractic, acupuncture, Chinese philosophy such as meridians, chakras & other energies, counselling and brain neurology.

Choosing a kinesiologist at New Leaf is easy:   we all have different skills and different knowledge base to work from, and you simply book in with the practitioner that feels right for what you are going through. If you need to see someone else afterwards, we’ll let you know (your body will tell us!!!)

Norman Todkill is a very gentle kinesiologist who brings many years of massage therapy and biochemistry skills and knowledge to your treatment session.  Norm is very calm and has an ability to gently move through big issues and help to alleviate stress and pain from your life.  With the combination of NOT/kinesiology skills he can find out exactly what supplements your body needs, so that you get on track sooner!  Norm’s balances are often very energetic in nature and clients often ‘feel’ his energetic healings. Norm also uses kinesiology to perform allergy testing, allergy treatments, endocrine balances and structural balancing.

Katherine Lynn  has a wide variety of kinesiology skills and is continuing to add to her skill base regularly.  Her technique moves through a variety of nutritional balancing, energetic healings, structural balancing, emotional issues and she can help you to thread together the issues from the past which are creating current health issues – emotionally and structurally. Kat is also being sought out as a kinesiology teacher – you’re in great hands with Kat.

Madonna is more structurally based than Kat.  Madonna’s areas of specialties are NOT and LEAP.  NOT is Neural Organisational Technique, a process which helps to realign the spine, remove whiplashes and cranial injuries, rebalance the foot and ankle muscles, hips and shoulders and more.  LEAP is a learning enhancement process which is great for brain integration.  It works through a series of parts of the brain and gets them working one by one.  Both NOT and LEAP are programmes which take time to work through, but are worth the energy.  3 sessions of LEAP do more for the brain than a year of counselling!  3 sessions of NOT is worth 3 months of chiropractic!

An example of our Kinesiology ‘Balances & Treatments’ are:

Allergy Assessments: a protocol to find substances: foods, pollutants, additives which are causing health issues

Allergy Re-training: helps to re-set the body energetically so that it may handle allergens/intolerances better

Celestial Circuit Balancing: do you feel like yourself?  Feel beside yourself?  Your centre of gravity may be out of balance…  this is an incredibly powerful technique to bring your energies back into centre…

Emotional Diffusion: the ability of kinesiology to find old emotional patterns and ‘diffuse’ them.

Endocrine Balancing: a specific balance (from NOT) which re-sets the endocrine system – supporting all of your endocrine organs:  adrenals, thyroid,

Heart Healing: when something has happened in your life, which colours every single thing that you do, a heart healing may be appropriate.  It is a huge balance, aimed at increasing your level of ‘consciousness’.  For high level stress.

Immune System Balancing: this improves the function of your immune system, activates your immune system and reduces stress.

LEAP:  a protocol (over many sessions) which progressively works through areas of the brain.  Memory centres, working memory, auditory pathways, visual pathways, balance mechanisms.

Neural Organisational Technique: a process which systematically works through getting better ‘neurology’.  Can help spinal pain, whiplash, scoliosis, jaw & hip problems, feet issues, shoulder pain & more.

Nutritional Balancing: the body can get confused about what it needs nutritionally.  This process works systematically through the minerals & ensures your body is accepting/utilising them.  Often it’s stress that shuts down our absorption.

Whiplash Correction: long term whiplash issues can be resolved through this process. Whiplashes can start long term health issues such as Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia.

Hypnotherapy/Neuro-Linguistic Programming:  this combination, performed by Norm, is exceptionally relaxing, and similar  to kinesiology helps us deal with, and cope with, stress, addictions, weight loss, fear and/or anger issues, OCD, anxiety, sleep issues and more.  It works through the subconscious to

Our Massage Techniques

Reflexology is a natural healing therapy, based on the principle that there are reflex points in the feet, hands and ears (the feet are most commonly the primary area of application), which correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. The body is treated through application of pressure on these reflexes without the use of tools, crèmes or lotions. reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related areas of the body.

Reflexology is able to help with many things, such as;

  • Constipation/Diarrhea
  • Impact on physiological measures (Cholesterol, blood pressure etc)
  • Poor blood circulation
  • Respiratory problems (asthma, allergies)
  • Post operative recovery and pain reduction
  • Mental health issues (depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder)
  • Pregnancy (easier childbirth, delivery, post-partum recovery)
  • Stress
  • All over muscle pain and tension
  • Sleeping problems

Aromatherapy uses essential oils which are aimed at improving a person’s health or mood. Many consider this type of treatment as unscientific and wishful thinking – however, scientific evidence of its effectiveness is growing. The essential oils used in aromatherapy have a different composition compared to other herbal products because the distillation used in aromatherapy recovers the lighter phytomolecules.

The theory behind aromatherapy:  It is believed that the inhalation of essential oils stimulates the part of the brain connected to smell – the olfactory system; a signal is sent to the limbic system of the brain that controls emotions and retrieves learned memories. This causes chemicals to be released which make the person feel relaxed, calm, or even stimulated. If the aromatherapy includes massage the effect is to further relax the person.

Remedial massage: When muscles become knotted and tense or damaged, remedial massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the body. The massage therapist endeavours to identify the original biomechanical dysfunction, thus healing the cause of the disorder, as well as the symptoms. Remedial massage uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage to muscles, tendons and joints. Massage therapy supports and speeds up the body’s own repair mechanisms. A lubricating edium (usually oil) is applied directly on the skin. This ensures that the muscles associated with the disorder are deeply penetrated. Passive joint stretching moves are also used.

Hot stone massage: Hot stone massage is a fabulously relaxing massage utilising lomi lomi massage and flat hot stones used in various positions on the body in order to relax, rejuvenate and pamper!

Frequency Specific Microcurrent

Very few practices in Australia have FSM and even fewer run FSM sessions the way we do!!!  FSM is a gentle, yet effective tool, originally developed for pain relief with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.  In the 80’s disc regeneration was developed as well, and since then much research has gone in to perfecting many, many pain protocols.

The technology is similar to MRI scanning – but FSM is used for healing and not for diagnostics (great, huh???)

We have programmes specifically for FSM, and most of our naturopathic programmes include 20-80% off FSM treatments.

Reiki/Intuitive Energy Healing

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” (on or over the body) and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Allergy Assessments

(using Kinesiology N.O.T. technique – for internal allergens, foods,  external allergens, make-up, cleansers etc)

Blood Group




Insulin Resistance: are you pre-diabetic?

This test is a non-fasting test which lets us see your Cholesteral, LDL, HDL, Trigs and Insulin Resistance – which is not standard in Doctors blood tests…

Live Blood Screenings: You SEE your blood on the screen – live!!!

B12, Iron, essential fatty acids, liver stress, leaky gut, white blood cell activity and count, parasites, infections, auto-immunity, poor immunity, ‘vitality’, inflammation

Ph – your acid/alkalinity

Being too acidic internally is one of the major causes for miscarriage, pain, skin disorders, exhaustion, heart disease and cancer.

Supplements:   (using kinesiology to ask what your body needs/how much.  We have many years experience in using this technique and it’s why our success is far beyond that of many other practitioners – Kat, Norm & Madonna prescribe only what your body tells them you need!)


Heavy metal testing, ph – acid/alkalinity, cancer pre-cursors, vitamin C, and more.

Urinary Indicans

This lets us know how much ‘bad bacteria’ you have in your gut.  Bad bacteria causes obesity, exhaustion, digestive disturbances and chronic disease.

VLA Cellular Analysis

We use this weekly to fortnightly  in our fat-loss programme to ensure it’s FAT that’s being lost.  Most weight loss programmes destroy muscle mass and dehydrate the body – so rebound weight is inevitable.  Our programme is successful because we treat the whole body, not just count calories or add up points.  You will achieve success if the programme is followed!

Zinc tally

Natural Support & Complications of Celiac Disease, Brisbane Australia

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Are you trying to find out about celiac disease – complications to avoid and how can we live a long and healthy life with Celiac disease?  Celiacs is a disease which attacks the intestinal wall when there is gluten in the diet…  we find, in our natural therapies clinic, that there is much that can be done to support the main symptoms initially, and healing and creating long-term health after the symptoms have eased.

Firstly, have you been tested and found out you have celiac?  Or have you suffered all of the symptoms but have been tested and found that it’s negative.  Did you know that of the gluten intolerant people  in Australia (of which ALL of the symptoms of celiac can be found) only around 3% are actually celiac.  Up to 97% of people who have gluten intolerance have a wide variety of the symptoms.  There are many false readings, even with a full small intestinal biopsy test.

Symptoms of celiac disease:

  • tummy pain
  • general malabsorption of our diet
  • losing weight
  • feeling sickly and ‘off’ a lot, nausea
  • nutritional deficiencies such as iron, B12 and vitamin D
  • magnesium, calcium and potassium deficiences
  • constipation and/or diarrhoea (more often loose bowels)
  • zinc, fibre, B vitamin deficiency
  • long term: various immune system issues and much higher risk of cancers

What can be done naturally at New Leaf Natural Therapies?

  1. reducing stress through Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM), Kinesiology and Massage
  2. Healing the gut lining with FSM and nutritional supplements for gut repair
  3. start reversing the chronic fatigue with FSM, Kinesiology and nutritional supplements
  4. supporting weight gain or weight loss with better gut absorption
  5. allergy testing using kinesiology to determine other foods/substances causing gut issues

What tests can we do to find how ‘out of whack’ the system is, and to monitor improvement?

  • Live Blood Analysis
  • Helicobacter
  • Candida
  • Allergy Testing
  • Bioimpedance analysis (finding inflammation levels – impact on gut healing)

Talk to us today and find out how we can help you!

The story of Stem Enhance: by Christian Drapeau; “Neurological Scientist”

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

A little over two decades ago, a new herbal supplement names Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), an aquatic botanical, made it’s appearance on the market place. Rapidly, AFA became popular for the wide variety of health benefits reported by consumers. Over the years we identified the presence in AFA of various compounds such as phycocyanin, a strong natural anti-inflammatory compound, a polysaccharide supporting immune function, and phenylethylamine (PEA), a molecule known as the “molecule of love”, which increases mental clarity and provides a sense of well being. Nevertheless, in spite of the identification of these various components, many health benefits reported by consumers remained unexplained.


At the turn of the 21st Century, data began appearing in the scientific literature describing the potential of embryonic stem cells (ESC).ESC were shown to have the ability to become any kind of cells in the body. Soon after, studies revealed that adult stem cells (ASC) also had the ability of becoming virtually any kind of cells in the body.


            When this discovery was made, we hypothesized that ASC constituted the natural renewal system of the body, and we published this hypothesis in the journal, Medical Hypothesis (October 2002). Our idea at the time was this: if ASC indeed constituted the natural renewal system of the body, with ASC being able to become any cell type of the body, then supporting this process could lead to a wide variety of health benefits. Given the broad spectrum of benefits reported by AFA consumers, we simply hypothesized that AFA was supporting aspects of stem physiology.


With this idea in mind, we initiated a series of laboratory experiments and soon discovered that consumption of large quantity of AFA (greater than 5 grams) increased the number of circulating stem cells by up to 30%. As we pursued our investigations to identify the compound in AFA responsible for this effect, we actually identified two specific compounds supporting both the release of stem cells from the bone marrow and their migration out of the blood into tissues. We then proceeded to concentrate these compounds out of AFA, achieving 5:1 concentrates for both compounds, and blended these compounds  to make StemEnhance. One gram of StemEnhance supports the release of stem cells from the bone marrow and increases the number of circulating stem cells by up to 30%. StemEnhance also concentrates phycocyanin and PEA, other important compounds found in AFA.


StemEnhance is a natural product made of 100% organic AFA and manufactured in accordance with GMP regulations. The powder is encapsulated and bottled in a pharmaceutical grade facility, providing the highest quality possible. Each lot of Stem Enhance is tested for any potential contaminants, according to a stringent quality control program.


When asked why would one want to take StemEnhance, the answer is simply to support the body’s natural process of maintaining optimal health. Supporting stem cell physiology everyday by increasing the number of circulating stem cells is one of the wisest decisions one can make to regain and maintain optimal health.

What to do for Foot spurs, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis…

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

It’s amazing to me how many people ring me on 4BC to ask about foot spurs, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis…  It seems to be a very important, painful, and debilitating issue for many people in Australia.

Firstly, we need good connective tissue support so that the foot can heal and repair properly.  Nutrients that can be used are things like silica, magnesium, calcium…  Products that support connective tissue support:  Metagenics Arthrex; BioCeuticals Silica liquid; Metagenics Cartrin; Blackmores SCF; Metagenics Glucosamine Intensive Care.

Secondly, ensure weight is optimal…  carrying excess weight puts huge amounts of pressure on the feet, and they will of course, be inflamed over time.  Foot spurs, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis and natural side-effects of long term weight issues.  See us about our fat loss programme which has a fantastic success rate and saves you money long term.

Thirdly, structural balancing can be very beneficial:  in our clinic we do:

  • remedial massage to increase blood supply to the extremities
  • structural kinesiology to balance hips, knees, ankles, feet
  • foot manipulation to ensure all the bones of the feet are in correct positions
  • frequency specific microcurrent to help to break down calcification in the joints

So, there really is plenty of help for heel spurs, foot spurs and plantar fasciitis.  Call us today to book your appointment!
