PSYCHOSOMATIC DISORDERS: the mind-body connection!

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Doctors to whom I speak to are more aware now of the mind-body connection and are noticing people who attend their clinics with physical symptoms driven from psychological issues rather than medical ones.

Did you know that nearly 50% of heart tissue is made up of brain neurons?  Now we know why we FEEL with our hearts

They are recognising how phantom symptoms which are real for the sufferer are not showing up as organic diseases measured in blood tests, hormonal in-balances or the presence of a primary disease. What we know is that brain through its thinking mechanisms, and our bodies via emotions and feelings, are able to produce other effects and symptoms of what may mimic a known disease or disorder. The problem is that when you investigate or use a conventional treatment on the assumed problem it does not resolve the issue. We know the types of conditions include seizures, paralysis, blindness, deafness, headaches, severe pain and many other bodily symptoms such as sweating, stomach cramps, palpitations and bloating.

It is a hard diagnosis to convey that is all in your head or psychologically linked but yet true. This does not diminish or negate the issue but simply switches the approach and emphasis of how to look at where the treatment approach should focus and work from. The issue is real and is treated as such by body centric psychotherapy and it is an area where success has been obtained by considering such a cause may exist where conventional medicine cannot achieve healing of whatever condition exists.

So, how can we help with psychosomatic symptoms?

At New Leaf we do lots of techniques to help you find and work through psychosomatic illnesses….

Kinesiology – helps to find old patterns, beliefs, disconnections that are not allowing us to live our best life.  Kinesiology also helps us target the source of the problem and work out supplements which are most effective for you

Quantum Consciousness healings – Rob helps clients find their way, heal the past through a talk-therapy-visualisation process that helps to look at the root causes of addictions, stress and pain

LEAP – helps to integrate pathways of the brain which aren’t working – and are stopping logical and creative thinking in order to find solutions

Flower Essence Combinations – we design flower essences specifically for you and the emotional issues you need to work through!

Call us on 3348 6098 or email on healthteam@newleafnaturaltherapies.com.au to chat about what appointment will be best for you.

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 Cancer

Friday, June 28th, 2013
How can New Leaf do for cancer??

People end up in a state of shock with any diagnosis… but I’m healthy. I exercise. I look after myself…

However, the standard things we consider with our cancer clients are (all cancer has the same causes – our genetics have been hugely disturbed – and has 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. Once our BMI is over 30, it’s releasing inflammatory hormones 100% of the time.  The VLA bioimpedance analysis also gives inflammatory signs – how inflamed the cells are, how much nutrition is stored in the body – or not. These are all cancer risks and can be improved. HCG is fantastic as 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, osteoporosis. Cancer doesn’t just magically appear in our bodies. It takes at least (usually) 4 years to develop – requires lots of genetic changes, acidity, less than adequate nutrition to appear. Acidity is caused by many things (this is why we do lots of testing):

  • Parasites, bacterial and fungal infections:  the human microbiome being out of balance
  • Nutritional deficiencies:  we can’t create cancer without deficiencies – it is simply impossible
  • Food allergies and intolerances:  food plays such a huge role – if we constantly have allergies we’re activating TH2 cells in the immune system, this switches down our ability to fight cancer cells which require TH1 activity.
  • Stress, survival patterns, trauma
  • Weight gain

3. Iron, B12, folate – optimal levels. When we do live blood screenings these parameters are crucial. The size of the red blood cells is so important because lots of nutrients travel around the body in the red blood cells – if too small (classic iron deficiency) if too large (classic B12 deficiency). B12 and folate are now known to repair DNA/genetic disturbances (in big enough 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. Anaesthetics bind with B12 and make it unavailable. We then need huge doses (2000-4000mcg daily) in order to 1. Pull out anaesthetics 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 and chemo and anaesthetics all add to the toxic load, creating an environment where cancer can return.

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 dangerous for the entire body. It means that 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 our body is struggling through the thyroid – it also slows down liver function (detox) gut function (absorption) DNA repair and maintenance (allowing genetic changes which allow cancer)

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… but if you know how your body has coped (bioimpedance analysis, live blood screenings, kinesiology for heavy metals/allergies/emotional support than you have a much much better chance long-term….

 

So, these are a few of the things we do for cancer.  We work systematically through a detox process, using testing processes to guide us as to what needs work first, and we slowly but surely work on the ‘health’ of your body instead of focussing on the disease.  By working on the ‘health’ of the body, it’s creating an environment where cancer finds it harder to survive.

More and more reasons to avoid Genetically Modified Foods

Monday, June 24th, 2013

 

Genetically modified foods are in a large amount of our foods – and most of us won’t know it. How could we? When GM foods are highly refined and are ingredients in packaged foods, Australian law doesn’t require any labelling indicating their presence! Any ingredients such as soy, corn, vegetable oil, and canola oil are highly likely to be genetically modified. Basically, if it doesn’t say it’s not, it IS.

GM foods are not only a danger to our health, they have the potential to destroy the environment – their effects are already causing wide-scale damage, particularly for birds, bees, and waterways. In fact, the Russian and European governments have moved to ban GM seeds and associated pesticides due to their destructive ecological effects. A single grain of corn covered in a GM-produced pesticide used the US, neonicotinoid, is enough to kill a bird.  Of particular concern are the declining bee populations globally. Over 90% of wild bees have been wiped out in the US, and the main culprit is genetically modified seeds and the pesticides used on them. Bees play a huge role in the food we eat – pollination is essential for healthy crops and healthy produce. Without bees, we won’t be able to grow enough crops to feed the world.  According to Dr Ken Walker, senior entomologist at Museum Victoria;

“You think of all the fruit and vegetables that we eat – without pollination that wouldn’t occur. You think of all the fruit and vegies we eat – sometimes you might get a tomato or a piece of fruit that isn’t as luscious or isn’t as large, and that is because it hasn’t been well pollinated. And so the tree says, well if it’s not well pollinated I’m not going to put as much energy into making a good piece of fruit. So pollination is an enormous thing for us.”

So, it’s crucial that we avoid GM foods and protest their production by refusing to buy products with GM ingredients. To find out which foods in Australia contain genetically modified ingredients, visit www.truefood.org.au.

We’d like to (re)introduce ourselves!

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Our team has changed dramatically over the past 12 months, and we have a wonderful team of diverse and highly skilled practitioners whom we’d like to introduce here;

Chronic Infection causes Chronic Disease

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Chronic Infection causes Chronic Disease:  since about 90% of the cells in our bodies are ‘bugs’ – parasites, bacteria, fungus, cancer – and the ‘particles’ of all of the above, it’s important to keep them working ‘for us’ instead of working ‘against us’.  Most disease, especially those of auto-immune conditions – are the ‘bugs’ definitely working against us.

It has commonly been said that the era of pathogen-induced infectious disease which plagued previous generations has passed, to be replaced instead with the era of lifestyle-induced chronic disease.  It may be, however, that the two are inextricably linked.  Instead of acute, ravaging infections which result in severe organ damage or death, it seems the more common type of infections today are simmering, low grade ones that promote inflammation, cause oxidative stress, damage mitochondria and, ultimately, drive chronic disease.

This relationship between low grade microbial infection and chronic disease was first identified in the 1950’s with the discovery of viruses as drivers of carcinogenesis, such as hepatitis B in liver cancer and human papilloma virus in cervical cancer.  Since that time, links have been made with infectious causes in conditions as varied as arthritis, Alzheimer’s Disease, gastric ulcers, chronic fatigue syndrome, autism, obesity and even cardiovascular disease.

80% of infections cannot be found in medical tests.  We use a combination of live blood screenings, urine tests, kinesiology testing and Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage to discover where infections may be lurking in your body.

HCG Rapid Weight Loss: Safe, Easy, Effective, PROVEN!!!

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

HCG:  the safest, fastest, easiest way that we’ve ever found to lose weight IF it’s done properly.  Without detoxification, balancing hormones, HCG can make people a toxic and emotional mess.  At New Leaf, we use a combination with natural therapies which:

*  detoxification supplements which detox fat and blood and toxins are being released (hugely important to stop rebound weight issues)

*  do VLA Bio-impedance Screenings so that you KNOW what is going on in your body – fat mass, muscle mass, inflammation, toxicity, metabolism.  One of the worst things about weight loss is hitting those ‘stalls’.  With VLA Bio-impedance Screenings, we can see if it’s because you’re gaining muscle mass, getting more hydrated, releasing toxins and storing fluid to dilute them…  All of which gives you the information you need in order to stay focussed, positive and switched on.  Most naturopaths do not have our experience in dissecting this information for you – and don’t know what to do specifically on HCG.  We’re HCG specialists at New Leaf!

*  balance blood sugar:  some people need extra support.  If blood sugar isn’t balanced we can feel hungry (or starving), have highs and lows of energy, poor sleep/insomnia, and feel stressed.

*  break down scar tissue in the abdomen:  With Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage we can ensure your organs through the abdomen (liver, gall bladder, kidneys, adrenals, reproductive organs, bowels, bladder, spleen, pancreas, lungs) are functioning properly.  Amazing treatment protocol that improved function of all of these major organs in your body.

*  kinesiology for self sabotage (ever experienced that with weight issues??!!).  Put on weight, sabotage your whole day?  Can’t stop eating once you start?  Let’s start working on those self-beliefs that don’t serve you for your goals:  “I’m not worth it”  “I can’t do it”  “I can’t do it without support”  “It’s too hard making two meals at night time”.  If you think about sabotage, they’re generally just thoughts that don’t serve us and don’t help us to move forwards in life.

Remedial Massage in Wynnum, Brisbane. Benefits of Regular Remedial Massage

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Current Bonus:  30% off your initial massage – mention this website!!  Our beautiful natural therapies clinic in Wynnum, Brisbane, has a fantastic remedial massage team.  We also have Reiki sessions available with Gabby Graham.

Remedial Massage is very different today than it was 30 years ago.  Today is becoming more and more recognised as a way of repairing muscles and tendons:  these can be damaged through many problems in daily life – the product of overuse, trauma or bad posture.

Remedial massage involves a number of applied techniques involving deep pressure, trigger points released and longitudinal strokes on shortened and tight muscles to allow proper function and restore muscle strength.

Remedial Massage Technique: It uses several specialised techniques to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms. The massage is applied directly to the skin using a lubricating medium, usually oil, which ensures that the muscles associated with the disorder and mobilisation of the joint are deeply penetrated. Passive stretching moves are also used.

Benefits of Remedial Massage

Key benefits of Remedial Massage include: the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility. An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through therapeutic relaxation.

Muscular and skeletal dysfunctions often addressed with Remedial Massage include Fibrositis, Spondylitis, Arthritis, frozen shoulder, muscular cramps, Whiplash, muscular atrophy, sports and dancing injuries.

Ring and ask about our specials – we often have great bonuses available for first time clients!
