Adrenal Fatigue/Chronic Fatigue – Natural Support at New Leaf

Friday, June 14th, 2013

Adrenal Fatigue is such a huge problem in society these days, each person’s history is totally different, and the ability to prescribe a one-off bottle of Adrenotone and fixing it is just about over.

Signs that you may have adrenal fatigue!

1. increased caffeine intake
2. increased snacking to control blood sugar fluctuations
3. increased fatigue
4. increased irritability
5. increased sleep problems If you feel “wired but tired” you likely need some adrenal support.
6. development of any long-term disease
7. ADD, ADHD, inability to think clearly
Some of our favourite supplements and protocols for Adrenal Fatigue are:
1.  Kinesiology for Immune & Endocrine balancing, stress, dealing with traumas
2.  Frequency Specific Microcurrent:  helps to remove toxins caused by inflammation
3.  Remedial Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Relaxing Massage & Infrared Saunas:  increases serotonin levels, reduces inflammatory hormones and helps us to heal
4.  Supplements:
*  Adrenotone – combination of nutrients which help thyroid and adrenal fatigue
*  Ultra Flora Immune, Andro NK, Bactrex, Parex, Costat, Waiora NCD – for those who have a history with infections preceding fatigue
*  Gaba, Proxan, Resilian, Stressan, Relaxan, Estrofactors, Oestroclear – for those with a history of stress/depression/anxiety/hormonal imbalances

Food Poisoning: Tips to avoid and heal your gut!

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

Have you ever experienced food poisoning and wondered how you got it??

  1. Have you eaten anything with raw eggs?  These may contain Salmonella when uncooked
  2. When you are ‘unfreezing’ meats – let it thaw in the fridge, NOT outside in the air (which may contain bacteria)
  3. Don’t leave perishable foods out of the fridge/oven for more than an hour…only 1 airborne bacteria can cause issues:  2 hours at the absolute outside – 1 bacteria doubles every 20 minutes!
  4. Wash your utensils before you use them
  5. Wash your hands before you serve any food items, don’t poison your family and friends
  6. Wash the plate before you re-use the food plates – your hands may have bacteria, the plates may have bacteria!  The staph bacteria that lives on your hands can transfer from plate to food to friends!
  7. Listeria infections happen days or weeks later and may cause infections in the brain like meningitis.
  8. Use shallow containers (less than 2 inches high) to store/cool food.  This cools food quickly and slows down the bacterial growth.

How to avoid food poisoning?!

  1. have a great immune system using supplements such as AndroNK, Ultra Flora Immune and MetagenB12Folate.
  2. have a great gut – 70% of immunity is in the gut – using supplements such as Ultra Flora Immune & G-Tox.
  3. take digestive enzymes with meals if you have no control over the preparation – supplements such as Metagest, Vegetarian Digestive Enzymes or Digestone.
