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.

Why Detox? Is it really necessary??

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Why Detox??  Is detoxification really necessary?

Many of us are oblivious to the amount of toxins we breathe in, digest, and create daily.  Estimates range up to 70,000 toxins that we breathe in daily, and up to 10,000 that we ingest.  The humble shiny green apple has between 36-70 chemicals just to make it shiny!  Our power plants (there are 23 in Australia and 100’s throughout the world) release 4000 tonnes of mercury into the atmosphere every year.  No wonder our waterways have fish, known to be full of mercury and other toxins…

If we have ANY health problems, there’s over a 90% chance our inflammation, acidity, toxicity can be helped through detoxing.  Many doctors say 100% are caused by toxicity of numerous kinds. Our body’s simply can’t catch up with the amounts of toxins in the environment, and release them all.

There are viral and bacterial connections to many chronic health problems, fungal and candida connections to just about every disease.  Everything from arthritis to glandular fever, chronic fatigue to hashimotos, asthma to ulcers, has been linked to a gut problem, where these infections find a home base to live – not a good thing!

For someone who has allergic symptoms: sneezing, runny nose, sinusitis, rashes, hayfever, itches, often we have stored toxins, which are positively charged and creating inflammation.  Everytime our nose runs and our eyes itch, not only are there toxins plaguing our already unhappy body, but we are also storing inflammatory hormones, and often the drugs we use to treat these problems.

With aspergers, autism, ADD, ADHD there are links to heavy metals and allergens.  There are numerous studies which show high levels of heavy metals in hair mineral analysis, along with large amounts of stress hormones, such as cortisol and adrenalin, running through the system. Nearly all show intolerances to wheat and dairy.  The organs of elimination and digestion simply don’t have the capacity to break them down properly.

In issues associated with weight loss, it is a well established fact that people who detoxify lose weight faster and don’t reach the hump that others reach.  Fat tissue also creates at least 30 inflammatory substances, all of which then need to be stored in the body, often in the fat tissue, once again.

With inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis, it is often shown that large amounts of toxins are attached to the bone cells.  This creates inflammation and causes degenerations to the area.

What causes Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) & Fibromyalgia? Reasons for poor diagnosis in medical circles…

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

There are real reasons for poor diagnosis, medically, of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia.  Think about what happens in chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia – medically there is often nothing outstanding in the blood tests, slight variations in iron levels, liver function, but nothing conclusive.  There may be a little rise in inflammatory signs, and yet medically this will be blamed on ‘fighting a bug’, ‘pain’ or ‘being tired.’

Anything that slows down metabolism, makes the blood supply sluggish, upsets the liver and digestive tract can be involved in chronic fatigue. Isn’t it time to start dealing with the reasons, one by one, and get your life back on track??

Here are various reasons for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia and what tests we do to confirm/deny this is a problem for you.

  • the body is too acidic (urine test)
  • the body is inflamed (live blood analysis and cellular analysis/VLA)
  • heavy metal toxicity (urine test)
  • candida (blood)
  • celiac (blood)
  • helicobacter (blood)
  • insulin resistance (blood)
  • low HDL cholesterol levels (blood)
  • fungal and mould spore infestations (blood & kinesiology)
  • allergies/intolerances (live blood analysis & kinesiology)
  • general toxicity (live blood analysis & cellular analysis/VLA)
  • tooth toxins/amalgams
  • scar tissue toxins
  • environmental allergens & intolerances (kinesiology)
  • endocrine issues – thyroid, adrenals, sex hormones (kinesiology)
  • adrenal stress (kinesiology/blood)
  • emotional stress/post traumatic stress syndrome
  • poor immune system (live blood analysis)
  • geopathic stress
  • electromagnetic stress (kinesiology)
  • viral and bacterial load (live blood analysis & urine test)
  • parasites (live blood analysis)
  • digestive issues and leaky gut syndrome (live blood analysis)
  • poor diet
  • smoking, drugs and alcohol

You can see why the one-reason-fits-all ’cause’ that they’re looking for medically doesn’t work.  In all of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia clients we see, there has been a combination of causes that we find through our various testing processes.

Our naturopaths all have experience in dealing with these causes, can recommend treatments to help speed up the healing processes and will recommend lifestyle changes that ultimately will save your cells!
