Women's health issues are a huge and diverse array of symptoms and conditions covering all three areas of primary health,Mind Body and Spirit. Like all things they need to be in balance. It is interesting the importance that as women you place on recovery, health and wellbeing.
What we find more than anything with female clients is how little attention has been paid to understanding and analysing their diets, stress, trauma recovery and lifestyle. All too often we find that there has been so much emphasis on symptom recovery and management, that as soon as these modalities are stopped, the original symptoms return.
By paying attention to detail with understanding the immune system and the effects that dietary and environmental toxicity has on female health, many of the significant and common causes for visiting alternative practitioners are eliminated.
Every time I have a patient that tells me they have been diagnosed with breast cancer or some auto immune condition, the first response that I have is "No one develops this condition without first being under immense stress and trauma - causing a breakdown in the immune response, therefore leading to the condition". If you want to fix the problem repair the damage and offset the stress.
This can be significantly more effective once a correct dietary evaluation has been made. 75% of my clientele are women, 20% are children (nearly always accompanied by women) with a mere 5% accounting for a few switched on Men. Everything from Poly cystic ovaries, candida to breast cancer and auto immune conditions can be helped with identifying specific inflammatory and allergy responses associated with food and environmental toxicity. Make the right choice and start with what goes in, after all we are what we eat.
We are very experienced in children's health relating to food intolerance, sensitivities and hypersensitivity. We approach infants and toddlers slightly differently to children over 2-3 years of age. We understand that children are different to adults and present with different problems that may not always be so common in mature age clients.
Years of experience in this field has led us to confidently deal with children as young as 6-8 months. We always take control of the consultation in such a fashion that the child feels comfortable and safe. However some kids always seem to test mum, especially at sleep times, in these cases we normally conduct the test in as quick a fashion as we can, never however at the expense of accuracy.
Although the assessment does not hurt, some kids do not like to be kept still for too long or just have a fear of offices. We might in this case put on a cartoon show for the kids and in 95% of cases this will again settle them down. In the odd case that we have a constant crier, with the parents permission we will just continue through. Parents may ask "does the crying affect my concentration ?", the answer is no. I understand the importance of your time and the importance of getting the test done and that's what we do, staying focused until the test is finished.
I speak to other practitioners about this and they generally conclude that they often won't take on toddlers as clients due to the stress of crying children. We work with many types of children's problems. A list of the symptoms that we often treat, which respond successfully to treatment include
Trusting your children to a practitioner is something that we take especially seriously, which is why we try so hard to spend the time with you that you need to understand your child's condition. However common sense should and must prevail above all.
Always make sure that you are under the supervision of a Pediatric Specialist with any condition that you regard as serious relating to your child's health. Being a parent with two children, understanding your own childrens health problems with focus and compassion is something that we pride ourselves in. Having faith in my own protocols is something that was tested when my own daughter Zoe was diagnosed with cancer at 6 years of age. 26 months of chemotherapy, following our recovery and dietary protocols and she did not develop one infection.
Teenage health is something that requires somewhat of a tactful approach.
Assuming that the teenager recocnises that they have a problem we can initiate a correct and full recovery program. Areas of consideration for teenage health include.
Bringing your teenager for a test, should be done with the approval of your teenager, as it is hard to push water uphill if they don't want to get better, irrespective of your views for recovery.
Working with weight loss can often be a hard goal to achieve.
For years we have been unhappy with the quality of program around until now. Finally we have found an eating plan for weight loss and management that follows off the back of our allergy program.
You see after 15 years and tens of thousands of clients we noticed constantly that those over weight patients who were never able to lose weight lost it. Why ??, the answer was simple, we finally had produced a foundation of health so solid that they were able to work from it and after they had fixed up their allergies, repaired their gut function, initiated a correct liver detox and embarked on a correct eating plan, they were now able to be slowly eased into a weight management program.
The problem was however that up until now we were unhappy with many of the programs on the market as they were either still loaded with sugars, consisted of no fibre or carbs which led to carbohydrate addiction, or that they relied on toxic shakes, meal replacements or weight loss supplements that had high doses of caffeine in them.
We now support a lifestyle eating plan which we implement only after we have achieved these fundamental foundations in health. It allows us to follow a fair and achievable low GI eating plan based on the clients original anti allergy program. A truly customised program designed to suit you and only you.
Choosing a Clinic
It is most important when making a decision about receiving advice regarding allergies and partaking in a testing procedure, that you visit a clinic that does this as their main modality.
The experience in testing and achieving the correct results can have some affect depending on how the technician operates the equipment. Much like a dentist as experience increases the use of their tools become an extension of their hands. Using super sensitive equipment such as used in our clinics can have slightly differing results if the technician is not experienced in taking skin resistance readings.
These may include not taking into account the moisture levels of the skin being tested (usually the fingers), not taking into account perhaps the age of the clients skin and condition of the skin, even whether the client is wearing hand cream.
An experienced technician will take all these items and more into account to attain reproducible and accurate results time after time, patient after patient. In addition to the testing results, professional and easy to understand instructions need to be incorporated along with a practical and realistic approach to immune support and recovery.
Any practice which purely does a test and does not offer any other advice regarding recovery (including hospitals and medical clinics) may not be offering the patient the best possible chances of recovery. When looking at choosing a practitioner to help you with allergy treatment and recovery always make sure that they incorporate these simple procedures and that they are extremely experienced in treating both many clients (thousands are better than a few hundred) and that they have treated a wide variety of symptoms and are able to treat several major health conditions at once. ie maybe Hives + Candida + Diabetes + Hayfever etc . This is important as it shows practitioner competence and experience.
We have built our practice on these very foundations of experience, attention to detail and modern computerised testing facilities
