Colds Flu Bugs! Let’s get well!! 2018 Winter Specials (use by 31st August 2018)

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

Are you trying to prevent the flu this year?  Trying to avoid the Flu Vaccine?

Let’s think about what it means to get sick…

…  it means your immune system is lowered.  Herbs and nutrients help to boost white blood cells – your immune system – so you can fight infections faster.

…  being sick ripens your immune system.  Each time you get unwell, and NATURALLY boost your immune system, and NATURALLY  get well afterwards, you then have this immunity for the rest of your lives.  Vaccines give no long-term protection – which is why it’s recommended each year.

…  looking at your blood (Book in at New Leaf – winter special is only $199 for 1.5 hours with Georgia or $219 with Madonna) will give you an idea about how worn out, exhausted, challenged your liver, gut, immune system is…

…  Big enough doses of vitamin C (anywhere from 3-20 grams daily) has been shown to kill viruses… increase daily until you hit bowel tolerance – vitamin C.

…  We have herbal nasal sprays that have essential oils and xylitol which will help to locally kill infections and break down old biofilm / mucus that’s holding old infections in the sinuses.  These infections are reactivated once we’re exhausted and run down – and our immune system is compromised.  We also have herbal throat sprays which do a similar thing in the throat – locally kill infections.  Obviously, we still need to boost the immune system as well, local infections (sinuses, lungs, throat, gut) are just a sign that the overall immune system isn’t working well!

…  Probiotics – there are very specific strains of gut probiotics that boost immunity.  The regular strains are not the ones proven to boost immunity – see us for specific strains that raise the gut immune system

…  Herbs all have different ways of working for us:  there are herbs that are mucolytic, herbs that tone the lungs and sinuses, herbs that boost immunity, herbs that settle the cough, herbs that kill viral infections, herbs that destroy bad bacteria….  once again, think probiotics as well!

…  Stress will reduce the immune system – we find that sometime unless that stress is lessened (or resolved) the immune system will never improve.  All of our processes (OligoScan, Blood, Acupuncture, Kinesiology, Naturopathy, Massage) can all find reasons for stress and help to support lowering it.

…  Acupuncture helps to boost immunity, tone the lungs, boost energy to and from our bloodstream and lymphatic systems…  Book a series of immune boosting Acupuncture sessions for only $89 each!  Mention this special!!!

…  Kinesiology helps to find blockages stopping your immune system from functioning properly…  1/2 hour Immune Boosting Kinesiology for only $99 with Georgia or $119 with Madonna

…  Naturopathy / Kinesiology combo with Georgia only $149 for 1.5 hours!

…  Hot Stone Massage heats the body, which of course, is nature’s way (fever) for killing infections.  We have infrared saunas too!!    Book up to 3 x 1.5 hour Hot Stone Massages for only $99 with Shelby!

…  Frequency Specific Microcurrent can target the immune system, lymphatic system and boost these cells to detox faster!

Are you aware of the types of massage we do, the benefits and why we keep offering it for your health problems?

Massage is perhaps one of the oldest healing traditions. Many cultures – including the Ancient Greeks, Egyptians, Chinese and Indians – were convinced of the therapeutic properties of massage and used it to treat a variety of ailments.

Massage is the application of manual techniques to the soft tissue to mobilise them to maintain flexibility. Massage is especially effective in breaking compensatory pain postures and patterns. For example, a tension headache is often self-sustaining because the pain makes the person clench the affected muscles even harder, which, in turn, creates more pain. A thorough neck and shoulder massage can reduce muscle tension and break the pain cycle.

Massage for treatment of some disorders

Modern studies have shown that massage can be used to successfully treat a variety of disorders, including:

  • anxiety
  • arthritis
  • back or neck pain
  • soft tissue injuries
  • chronic pain
  • constipation
  • depression
  • headache
  • high blood pressure
  • insomnia.

Benefits of massage

One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins, the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.

Some of the physical benefits of massage include:

  • reduced muscle tension
  • improved circulation
  • stimulation of the lymphatic system
  • reduction of stress hormones
  • increased joint mobility and flexibility
  • improved skin tone
  • speedier healing of soft tissue injuries
  • heightened mental alertness
  • reduced anxiety and depression.

Different types of massage

Typically, the massage practitioner uses either oil or talcum powder to allow their hands to slip over the person’s skin. Sometimes, a sheet or thin piece of cloth might be used for the same effect.

The different types of massage may include:

  • Aromatherapy – essential oils made from selected flowers and plants are added to the massage oil for their particular therapeutic properties. For example, the scent of sandalwood is thought to reduce nervous tension.
  • Baby massage – can help to treat constipation, colic and sleeping problems. Studies have found that regular massage helps premature babies to gain weight at a faster rate.
  • Reflexology – massage of the feet can encourage healing in other parts of the body.
  • Therapeutic – also known as ‘Western’ or ‘Swedish’ massage. One of the most popular forms of massage in Australia, this technique is designed to promote relaxation and improve blood circulation.
  • Remedial – encourages healing of injured soft tissue, such as muscles, tendons and ligaments.
  • Hot Stone Massage – is a relaxing technique that uses the heat from the stones to penetrate into the muscle tissues
  • Sports – is a blend of techniques that aim to enhance performance and help overworked muscles to recover quickly.
  • Chi Nei Tsang – an abdominal massage process (45-60 minutes on the abdomen) which improves circulation to the abdominal organs, intestines, reproductive organs, muscles and tendons inside the pelvic cavity and lower back.

Special considerations

There are some instances where massage isn’t recommended, including:

  • during pregnancy, especially the first trimester
  • if skin rashes, cuts or infections are present
  • if fractures or broken bones are suspected.

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
