When is a diet not a DIET?

Proposal - June 24-25

Many times during my (seemingly never-ending) years of study and research, the topic of food combining and alkaline diet popped up. Sometimes I took a little on board but being a little warped by early medical studies I just could not equate diet with cure. Okay, so it was a good foundation but as for healing, surely you needed other modalities to make a difference? Surely if it’s broken, chop it off; if it’s damaged, use some powerful medication to sort things out and you’ll be ‘healthy’ again?

It was only in my late 40s that I realised even my health was declining, despite a vegetarian lifestyle for most of my years on this planet; despite the supplements, herbs, homoeopathics and even chemical free lifestyle. To the delight of colleagues (especially in the medical field) and so many, it seemed even practicing what I preached was not enough and it wasn’t worth all the effort – at the end of the day we all were ageing. But deep down I knew that was just not true.

Almost in passing, I rediscovered the alkaline diet. In desperation I flipped my household overnight. Totally vegan once again, and food on the 80/20 plan (meaning minimum 80% alkaline plus 20% acidic) and swapping a few habits, in turn flipped my health dramatically – where nothing in the past had worked. Being in constant pain, and missing the most important day in my adult life, my eldest child’s wedding because of sudden poor health was not only a painful turn of events, but a shocking reflection for my patients.

I had heard that people raised vegan alkaline never get sick, live to old ages and have health far superior to anyone else on the planet. But I had trouble believing that. I’d always thought they were just fanatics who stretched the truth a little. It was only when one by one, all my accumulated symptoms disappeared and I became immune to whatever bug was going around that I realised there was much, much more to this.

My foray into diet came in a roundabout way, courtesy of early herbal and organic gardening studies, plus a course in Natural Nutrition. It needs to be mentioned here that both of these paths include foods I now know to be acidic and not good for your health. I am not an expert on alkaline living but as with anything I take on, I am studying all I can on the subject and am blessed to be part of Dr Robert Young’s network.

I am not joking when I say ALL illness can be improved, if not removed altogether by living an alkaline lifestyle. Okay, so the first response is usually “I can’t eat all that raw food. I have to have my meat and dairy. That’s not living, that’s hell.” Really? Compared to what? Is it merely that people have been conditioned to endure ill health rater than do ‘anything’ for good health? Hell to me is being sick!

How is it that people happily agree to organ transplants, cracking open the skull to cut up the brain, pacemakers, removal of vital body parts and drugs with abhorrent side effects – or that ultimate sting – risking life or body function in the hope that a procedure might help them – yet fall down at the thought of eating healthy in the chance they will no longer be chronically or terminally ill? The biggest god-doctor act today is guilting parents into torturing their children – with one of the outcomes being possible brain damage or death. Yet living a healthy life is laughed at and dismissed…

For decades, I have seen miracle after miracle in natural health care. I am not joking and one day I hope to fill a book with the case studies. We are talking healthy births of babies that doctors left to die in utero; patients not given the hope of living through the night, walking out of hospital free of disease (once natural medicines have been snuck in), patients waking from comas when doctors have told families to prepare the last rites – when that family instead chose to learn all they could from me to help their loved one. Cancer patients, legally not permitted (that is how strong the medical system is – condemned by ego) to use natural therapies and told by their oncologists that they have a month at best, introducing simple measures into their water or food (or bodywork) and not only living past that month or so, but being declared free of cancer.

But nothing has prepared me for the depth of what the alkaline diet is capable of. Dr Robert and Shelley Young write life changing books on this – both the research and how to do it. In fact, there is a plethora of books available. These days, if I hear a person is terminally ill, I advise them immediately to begin the diet as per the list below, but then to follow up with a dedicated personalised protocol, as there is a lot to do, if we want to change the effects of our acidic life.

Basically, the body is alkaline by design but acidic in nature – that means if we want optimum health, we need to keep our bodies alkaline. This theory is supported by the fact the blood zaps all alkaline salts and minerals from tissues in our bodies – it has to. If the blood becomes too acidic, we die. In fact, all death – regardless of whether mechanical or medical – is linked to acidity.

How? Water is acidic – not by nature but because of pollution and treatment methods. Cooked food is acidic. Alcohol is acidic. So too with sugar, processed foods, even fruit. So if, like me, you live on kgs of fruit a day, yes, you are getting nutrients but you are filling your digestive system and blood with acidic sugar. Fructose is not the health product we are led to believe. Most fruits should be treated as a luxury – part of the 20% – along with all the obviously acidic foods and drinks. Exceptions to this rule – lemons, limes and to a lesser degree, other citrus, pears, berries and melons. Anything else is to be put into the same basket as other luxuries – chocolate, desserts, cakes, alcohol etc. Meat and dairy are arguably the highest in acidity – stress, chemicals, medications, health and death of the animals is simply passed on to whoever decides to put that into their mouths – and is linked to most disease and inflammation.

* Note: Contrary to what many so-called health experts are saying, slightly alkaline water is NOT enough to combat all the other acidic processes, nor can it raise your pH if you continue to eat the same way and live with the same stress.

Soil is usually acidic – even alkaline, limey soil becomes acidic because each grain is coated with chemicals.  Stress is acidic. Chemical cleaners and even beauty products cause acidic processes.

The theory is that ALL illness is acidic. Some even go so far as to say there is no disease – simply varying levels of acidity. Considering even pain can be removed by alkaline living, I’d have to agree. All bodily processes are acidic – they leave acid throughout the body. For optimal health, these tissues need to be alkaline. Give it a go and you will see why.

So, how do you become alkaline? It’s actually really easy and I do recommend you get a good book on the subject as it will go into far more detail than I am here. A few vital steps to take up front –

stick

* Water alkaliser or filter jug sticks – the machines are very expensive, but the rods, which last up to two years, can be left in your filtered water (never drink tap water or straight rain water – the environment is just not healthy enough any more) and both will turn your water alkaline. The machines have the benefits of negatively charging the ions. If you can afford it, this is the best option. The best option is a quality ionising, alkalising filter but these are expensive and often out of reach – your water will be finer in molecular structure, ionised, alkalised, remineralised (as in nature – spring water) and is naturally high in antioxidants. pH can be up to 10 which naturally raises your pH, removing toxins and inflammation and all illness linked to inflammatory processes can be positively affected.

0 8 detox

* Bi-carb – (baking soda) this should never be classed as a cure-all because it isn’t. You can’t just eat and do what you like and hope that a dose of bi-carb will do the trick. That would be akin to not watering your garden and hoping that a daily dose of fertiliser will do the job. But taking a flat teaspoon of bi-carb in water morning and night is pure magic. It flushes the bowel, kidneys and liver while upholding the structure of blood – in fact, it is an ingredient in many sports drinks, liver treatments, kidney medications, even IV fluids (it’s been my belief for many years that if Sodi-bic IV fluids were used instead of 4% and 1/5 saline dextrose, many traumatic and life threatening illnesses could be reversed. Warning – bicarb/baking soda will usually have the effect of a strong laxative – drink lots of water and do not use it if you are heading out – give at least an hour to allow the immediate effects to pass.

* Lemons/limes – these should be seen as your best friend. A minimum of one of either fruit per person, per day will lift your pH like nothing else. If you have a soda stream, adding pure juice to the carbonated water will soon become your drink of choice. If not, adding some to any water you drink will ensure your body’s pH sits at over 7 every day. Note – soda water even without sugary flavouring is slightly acidic.

enema

* Enemas – don’t laugh. Once part of every healthy program at spas, these have been relegated to obscurity and that is a shame. If you can afford to, book a couple of visits to a colonic irrigation/hydrotherapy clinic – this will flush away a lifetime of toxic build up and hurry the process up, as becoming alkaline in the saliva and urine is very different to your bowel sitting at a very healthy alkalinity. At home, coffee (I often joke this is the only way to use it), olive oil, diluted epsom salts or bi-carb will work wonders. Enemas have the ability to also turn around a lifetime of chronic illness and in many cultures, various forms of enemas and suppositories are made from herbs. Enema kits are available via eBay but my preferred apparatus is a simple saline enema bottle. You can use the saline once, then keep using the bottle. Soak in warm soapy water to which a little disinfectant has been added, drip dry and store for the next use. If you can do this even twice a week, you will soon notice the difference to your health.

Something happening more and more of late that concerns me no end – bowel rupture – could be avoided if people stopped popping medication in the hope it will fix from the top, something that is too deep seated to be corrected that way – it just wont. A regular enema will. Then by balancing with all the other measures your blockages, toxicity and chronic ill health can and will be reversed. Warning – this should be done only when you have an hour or so to lay still and wait for effects – either last thing at night or when you have the house to yourself during the day. Relax and don’t answer the phone.

* pH testers – Available over the counter in pharmacies and some health shops. I prefer to buy online and found a handy gadget from China that only costs about $10 and will work for years. Testing your urine a few times a day at first, will soon make way for once or twice, when you feel your body may be acidic. If your acidity is on the increase (low pH) you can take corrective measures such as bi-carb or lime/lemon/enemas to keep your pH where it is optimal. And yes, you can use the pool pH tester.

A detox 3

* Coconut oil – as important as citrus. Take a heaped teaspoon of coconut oil every morning BEFORE eating or drinking anything else. This will not only help flush your bowel and even drag heavy fats from your lymphatics and body in general, but the structure of coconut oil is such that it can positively affect your various body tissues, bones and organ function. Warning – don’t do it if you are on your way out – give it at least an hour to work.

juicer-vs-blender

* Blender and juicer – what has been done in ‘health freak’ homes for decades has finally taken off – no one can eat all the food that we’d need to get macro nutrient levels. We’d be eating all day. Today’s diet is so malnourished that we live in a perpetual state of hunger. By eating healthy, alkaline food you actually rarely get hungry. But the fact remains, by juicing or making smoothies from superfoods and alkaline plant foods, you will get more nutrients in one day than many get in a year. A blender can make nut milks, mayo, cream and even cheeses. It sounds unbelievable, but I am yet to hear one guest tell me they know I have just made that food with nuts.

Try it – a cup of almonds that have been soaked overnight, peeled by rubbing in a teatowel and squeezing between your fingers – cover with an equivalent amount of water. Add vanilla extract or paste to taste and a little fresh orange juice. This is the basis of the Spanish delicacy Bienmessabe or almond cream. Use less or more water to taste.

The same can be done with soaked cashews – to one cup, add half a cup of olive oil, juice of one lemon (a little quality vinegar if you prefer but remember it is acidic), a teaspoon of Himalayan salt and a little pepper. Blend until smooth – you can add garlic and parsley and this can also be adjusted to make ranch dressing, tartare sauce, thousand island dressing, etc, etc. I water it down further and add a little more oil and curry powder to make a salad dressing like nothing I’ve ever tried before.

Anyway, a blender can make the best smoothies – which should never contain dairy at all. Try a stick of celery, an avocado, 1 small carrot, 1 small beetroot, one small lime, one small orange, 1 small pear, half a cup of frozen raspberries, a teaspoon of maca powder and a tablespoon of pure coconut oil. Puddings can be made the same way. Even kids love this and don’t have a clue that they are drinking/eating health food! To make a gelato that everyone will love, add the pulp of one orange, a cup of frozen berries of your choice, a little vanilla extract and half a cup of soaked macadamias if you want it more like icecream. Unbelievably good. If you have a juicer, you can extract the very essence of alkaline foods rather than eat the bulk provided by merely blending lots of healthy food. What would usually fill an entire blender, a good juicer can do the same yet fill just a small glass – the benefits are endless. While the more expensive brands are the Rolls Royces of the field, even the cheapier bullet type blenders can be used as both a juicer and blender and if you use them wisely will do the trick for years.

Dehydrators-Comparison-Arizona-Best-Value.jpg

* Dehydrator – by joining a few raw food websites, you will be able to learn how to make alternatives to every one of your favourite foods – alkaline cakes and desserts, chips and crackers, even breads. I can make dozens of kgs of food into dehydrated foods in a few days – sadly, they are polished off exponentially faster than they are made…

SHOULD YOU ACCEPT A DEATH SENTENCE?

blog4

“Sorry but there is nothing more I can do for you.”

“Maybe not YOU, but what if someone else had the answers?”

Ask any person if they ‘believe’ in alternative medicine. Go ahead. 9/10 will say “I don’t ‘believe’ in it. They are all quacks. No alternative medicine has ever been proven. No alternative medicine has ever cured anything, it’s fact. My doctor told me.”

The other 1/10 will say “I never get sick because my naturopath helps me with everything.”Unknown-12

The most astounding aspect of natural or alternative health (which I was ‘informed of’ very officially this week is actually the term used to describe anything that doesn’t work) is that MOST successful natural therapy cases are the ones discarded by the medical system. In fact I was once approached by a doctor to deal with his ‘difficult’ patients. I asked what he meant, and he said it was the ones he couldn’t be bothered with, that were malingerers, hypochondriacs and bludgers. He even named a few – we lived in a small town so none of them were strangers to me. I accepted of course but made the mistake of suggesting that perhaps they were difficult because medicine had no answers. The following week he took out a full page in our local rag, advising the town to not frequent my clinic, that he would not be responsible if things went wrong, and that I was not a qualified medical practitioner. The fact his stupidity had the opposite effect of his intentions made no difference – but it did reinforce very early in my second career just what I was in for. And I soon learned to never refuse a case – the most ‘difficult’ – be they chronic or even terminal, these were the cases that shone – and continue to shine.

cropped-7.jpeg

Imagine the scene, I dare you.

1) Whether one ‘believes’ or not isn’t even an issue. Belief is not what makes that astragalus remove the virus. Belief is not what cured that cancer when medicine had no answers. And whether one ‘believes’ or not, wont make one ounce of difference to the fact billions around the world are healthy because they never use modern medicine except for fractures or severe accidents. Or that modern medicine is still one of the least used medicines in the world (‘the world’ is not just the USA, UK, Australia and EU)…. Not by circumstance but by choice. It’s just that pharmaceutical companies, universities and media are linked by more than nepotism. Money talks – loudly.

2) Quacks, charlatans and witchdoctors – all terms coined by a jealous, growing medical system. Traditionally, women were doctors and it was common practice for even a child to identify which herb or mineral could help them that day. Then ‘medicine’ became male dominated – wealthy, corrupt men began their boys’ clubs, and even midwifery was labeled as witchcraft. Herbalists were reputed to sell snake oil and various poisons – only called as such because doctors did not understand and had no intention of understanding. And only the wealthy could access modern medicine – if you were poor and had no access to traditional medicines (finances, geography, etc) too bad. Eventually with the world wars, manpower was needed on the battle field. Well it wasn’t, but once again male dominated warfare meant the public were pawns. And anyone who did not agree was labelled cowards and even shot for that crime.

In medicine, traditional herbs and other concoctions that doctors were still using, were easily synthesised in laboratories. Manpower was no longer needed. More money, less effort. Those medicines that could not bring a huge income became illicit. Drug companies popped up all over the western world and all of a sudden the money machine grew into a monster. A huge portion of modern medicine is simply synthesised natural medicine – so long as it comes from your doctor, it’s okay. But if recommended by a naturopath, you don’t believe it. Why? Because if you ask your doctor he/she will say they don’t believe in it. Such is the power of the god-doctor. It doesn’t make the medicines automatically stop working, you just choose to not believe it so either use it for one dose and expect a miracle, or avoid it altogether – therefore it doesn’t work…

tissue_states_wheel2

And what if you are told that medicine has nothing more for you? What if you are given 6 months? Most people will accept that and lay down and die. Many of that group will be poked, cut, prodded, drugged and assaulted in the faint hope that a miracle will happen. And if someone tells you they were cured of the same thing by naturopathy or any other alternative modality, you will still say “But I don’t believe in it.” And your god-doctor will say, “Misdiagnosis” – or as in one of my own cases, “So where is this wonderful miracle worker snake-oil merchant? I told you that patient was going to die and she will.” Even if by force.

3) More research into alternative medicine is conducted every single day, than modern medicine. But the purposes are very varied. Many companies set out to disprove alternatives. When they don’t, the research is shelved as unsuccessful – reported and on record as “Ineffective” – when in reality it’s the hoped-for result that failed, not the medicine or therapy. Other trials are set up to fail. You just cannot put a medicine into a test tube or into a lab animal and expect it to cure something. A few cells in a glass tube are nothing like the body as a whole, interdependent on every other system.

To be considered effective and get approval a drug only has to be 35% effective (and that includes trial cases that die from side effects) – for a naturopathic medicine to be effective it must reach 50%+ efficacy – meaning even the weakest dilutions, poorest quality test preparations must work. As with the new cannabis push, what good is a natural medicine which works in its natural form, if grown in sterile, sub standard laboratory conditions? Alternative medicine has millions of ‘proven’ results – they just don’t make it into the Lancet because it is not a pharmaceutical preparation. But all that is changing – as big pharma buys up manufacturing companies after cleverly orchestrated public disgrace and collapse. The eventual research only serves to prove what we have been saying all along. And like with drug research, it is in-house research that offers the best results (aka skewed results).

4) Doctors are not trained in alternative medicine – other than those who jump ship (and they are dying at a rapid rate from mysterious ‘self inflicted’ means). For them to say ‘it doesn’t work’ is akin to a naturopath giving medical advice. No, they do not know all there is to know. I have had doctors, unaware of who I am, telling me that certain supplements treat such-and-such, “But you didn’t hear it from me. There is some good research out there now so you may want to try it,” and even more others will say, “It’s been proven once and for all that no alternative medicine has ever worked.” No back up, no proof but that god-like authority is usually enough.

Rich-Doctor

So, back to the purpose of this blog. What if your doctor said to you that you have months to live and there is nothing we can do? Do you try every dangerous drug or surgery in the bare hope that a miracle happens? Or do you do what millions are doing every year in frustration? No, little of it makes headlines apart from the rare story that makes a best seller, but it is estimated that over 50% of the population will use alternatives (even in secret so as not to offend their doctor) and over 30% of the population all over the world have become self-researchers, courtesy of Google and myriad self help books flooding the market in desperation. The joke there is that doctors slam ‘Dr Google’ yet overlook that most medical consults today involve just that.

images-4

Alternative medicine is frowned upon as being self-regulated. So what does that make medicine? Self regulated but it’s backed by media and big pharma so that’s okay? Homoeopathy is laughed at and labeled as a placebo medicine at best – because a) it has zero ability to cause harm and b) doctors don’t understand it, researchers have been unable to work out how or why it works. Diet is dismissed by doctors – because they are not trained in it. Supplementation is regarded as unnecessary – how can that be? Our soils have been found to be deficient in dozens of micro nutrients – if even one is lacking, we have a chain of events in our bodies that are catastrophic. Yet improved diet and supplementation wont change that?

Unknown-11

I am not alone as a practitioner who has seen true miracles every single day. We are banned from ‘claiming’ we can cure disease when we do so every single day. The introduction of ‘evidence-based’ medicine was constructed with a set goal in mind – including the ability to pull down natural therapies. They have not been used in hospitals so therefore they do not work – until we are told they do. And one-by-one we are being discredited and struck off – even our own registering bodies are cutting us free to avoid bad publicity. And ultimately, our controlling factor is run by a medical group – who in turn are not trained in any of our modalities. Imagine if a pharmacy was run by an accountant. Or your doctor walked out at your local garage and announced he was going to fine tune your engine….

So, what ‘terminal’ and ‘chronic’ and possibly fatal disease has my own work helped to a cure? Not just a few years’ grace or a removal of symptoms that eventuate into something ‘unrelated’ but real cures and return (or even achieved for the first time) to perfect health.

Cancers (many different types, regardless of fancy names)

TB

HIV (much more to this story)

Arthritis

Gout

Rhesus negative factor in unborn child

Meningitis

Appendicitis

IBS

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Organ failure

Diabetes

High cholesterol

Heart disease

Congenital heart defect (hole-in-the-heart)

Suicidal depression

Brittle bones

Placenta praevia

Stroke

Asthma

526874_442778422505211_249478561_n

This is just a fraction of what I have witnessed cured without modern medicine. The integration of medicine in each case extended only to rare blood tests and x-rays, analgesia and occasional medication until the patient presented as free from the health issue. And yet people will still say they ‘don’t believe in it.’ Even if it is a choice between life and death.

During my time as a practitioner, we have lost our ability to provide sick notes, conscientious objection forms, even insurance provider numbers. It’s only public pressure that is going to change that. If not, then expect things to get worse than they already are.

 

So please, do not ask your natural health professional, ‘What do you treat?’ or, ‘What do you do?’ Just ask them and trust them to do their job and get your whole body healthy.

And now, with the miracle of the internet, many of us offer online consultations. The interesting thing is, natural health professionals began to do this from the earliest days of dial up internet. And it was banned. And like pharma drugs made from herbs, once the industry managed to control it, eHealth medicine became the way of the future. ‘Please see your doctor’ took on a whole new meaning.

The good news is that natural health professionals can now help you, regardless of what part of the world either of you are. That means no waiting room queues, no sitting in a packed waiting room or ER breathing in everyone else’s ailments. And if you feel too unwell to wait all day for the privilege of seeing your doctor (especially so in cases of CFS or other auto immune illnesses – you’ve all been there) this is an invaluable service which allows your practitioner to gather more information than any regular face-to-face consultation.

Cancer – beat it at home

Unknown-5

Yes, you heard right. The sad truth about the cancer industry is that research and anecdotally, most orthodox therapies have been proven to be barely effective at best, extremely toxic to life, and could be killing more people than all the various cancers put together. And sadly, you could be facing legal challenges if you dare to take it into your own hands – even if you are successful.

The simple thing to remember is that while experts are busy dividing and conquering, baffling the public with science, and planting just enough doubt, cancer is cancer – meaning it is acidic. Tumours and blood cancer, as well as lymphatic cancer alike, are all the effects of acidic lifestyle – be it emotions, chemically induced, diet induced or parasites, we must know this one thing –

CANCER CANNOT EXIST IN AN ALKALINE MEDIUM

Unknown-13

So if you take away the acid, you take away the effects on bodily tissues. The first step is to become alkaline (see my various posts on this subject). Meanwhile you can take many measures to heal tissue and boost the effects of the alkaline steps.

Many therapies exist that are tonic toward the body, encouraging healing –

Cassie Teawidely researched and proven but your doctor will never prescribe it if he/she values her reputation and registration…

Graviola – panned widely by medical experts who are too busy discrediting and scaremongering against it than actually offering hope. Despite extensive research and proof.

Homœopathy – which despite centuries of cures, is now a blackened word thanks to unqualified skeptics who even medical experts take advice from. As it cannot be ‘tested’ using core scientific methods (the same way someone speaking English could not be tested for IQ using for example, French or Latin) it is much easier to dismiss. However, seeing the various experts of other fields attempt to explain, shows the massive lack of understanding. This is the only reason that unlike herbal medicine, orthodoxy has been unable to ban it in order to steal and medicalise it – however they are trying!

Acupuncture  – (especially surrounding the dragon) sadly relegated to being used as an adjunct to the very therapies causing so much suffering, in and of itself acupuncture has been capable of cures for many centuries, long before modern medicine decided whether to use it or not. Sadly, the invention of ‘medical acupuncture‘ teaches doctors just a handful of points, resulting in a huge deficit of capabilities. If you are planning to see an acupuncturist for cancer – or anything for that matter, give this type of weekend warrior treatment a miss and go straight to a fully qualified practitioner.

Pineapple juice – you heard right. Who would think a simple enzyme (bromelain) could reverse brain tumours? Sadly medicine would have it that an extract and medicalised version should be chosen – however I have seen almost instantaneous results using fresh pineapple juice.

…. massage, or supplementation, each step is a positive one.

And the baking soda protocol is going to make your body inhospitable to cancer cells – minus the myriad side effects that you’d see with orthodox methods.

Your house, as well as your body, needs to be detoxed – begin with your pantry and your cleaning cupboard.

Foods to throw out NOW –

Sugar and all foods containing various forms of sugar
Dairy – regardless of form
Wheat and all flour-containing foods
Table salt and all associated foods
Animal fats and all animal/flesh/blood containing foods of all species
12122559845W67mx

Replace with – (please see my post under food and diet for more instructions re these foods) –

Sugar (purest form of acid = inflammation and cancer) – it is best to go 100% without sugar but less acidic options which are part of the 20% allowance (with 80% being alkaline foods) – stevia is a fair replacement if you must have sugar. And an allowance for the baking soda protocol. You will need to read labels stricter than ever before as insidious sugars like corn syrup are in just about everything – on that note, go fresh and organic if you can.

Dairy (mucosa irritant of the worst kind – attacks every mucous membrane, impairing healing and irritating cell linings) – by referring to a rawfood page like Sunny Raw Kitchen or Russell James’ site – or Shelley Young’s cookbook, you will, like most of us, be astounded at just what can be made without dairy – icecream, cream, mayonnaise, milk, dressings, butter – and you’d be hard pressed to detect that there is no dairy.

Wheat – like corn syrup, wheaten flour is in everything. It is not a health food, nor is it necessary as ‘part of a balanced diet’ – gluten intolerance now affects most of us in varying ways. It is high acid and irritates every cell in your body. In fact, by removing wheat and wheat containing products alone, many people report removal of pain that even analgesia could not do. It does take some time, just bear in mind that giving up wheat for one day is not going to be very beneficial. Gluten free foods are available today and you can buy gluten free flours for home cooking.

Table salt – is so highly processed that there is little beneficial mineral content remaining. It builds high levels of sodium as your body fights to remove what is not needed and like anything, too much of one thing is toxic and results in imbalance. Regardless of whether you are on a low sodium diet or not, Himalayan salt or river salt is a MUST – it contains good electrolyte levels – in balance – and will actively flush high sodium from your body. Any food prepared with salt on the label belongs in the bin. Sprinkle beneficial salt onto your food prior to eating rather than cooking in it (sodium present during cooking, at levels enforced by table salt, will leech vital nutrients which go down the drain. On that note, steaming is the kindest way to cook vegetables but the best way to source nutrients is eating them raw or juiced – or in a raw smoothie.

Animal-derived foods – one thing I need to mention is the heavy promotion of meat based products, gelatine, etc. Big money exchanges hands – this covers cookbooks, education, even training of nutritionists and diet advisory groups. It has zero to do with health benefits – in fact, most nutrition and cook books are funded and written by the various meat boards. Our bodies cannot assimilate flesh, it is that simple. Animal derived foods are highly acidic and cause inflammation immediately.

Many cancer forms are connected to high meat intake and even if you only eat it occasionally, to have cancer your body is already highly acidic – meat intake will simply ensure that pH level remains dangerously low. Unfortunately this also includes eggs – which are not only carriers of an alarming number of parasites (all cancer involves myriad parasitic levels) but are highly acidic in their own right. There are many meat alternatives now on shelves – and with a little forethought you can make your own alternatives. Please see my upcoming post on the food and diet thread for food replacements – and a food list is available on the same thread (link below).

One of the most common comments I get on eating this way is ‘It’s too expensive’ – I get that, but if you consider the amount of food you will no longer be buying, and allow your brain to rethink where your grocery money should go, you will realise that it’s not expensive at all.

Chronic fatigue syndrome – avoiding the scams

DSCF2101_1

The amount of misinformation out there for invisible illness, namely chronic fatigue, is alarming. 1 in 5 of my patients is affected by CFS/ME, fibromyalgia or lyme. Out of these people, most have been unable to work or even live in the real world for some time – many years even. Most have financial trouble simply because of the long drawn out process of mismanagement.

Many more are now dependent on addictive drugs and in turn, suffering side effects that only add to their troubles. Now that the medical industry (along with the pharma industry) are jumping on board and finally recognising CFS, the mismanagement has increased exponentially. With disastrous results. But these are the lucky ones – many suicide or give up on life because they lose hope.

My practice methods combine many modalities, and I work to find the most effective, affordable health care for my patients.

I began my health care journey in the late 70s as a keen nursing assistant, moving into training and eventually remote area nursing. Intending to move onto medical school, I was constantly frustrated with the establishment, refusing to hear those words “There is nothing we can do.”

There was always something else that could be done and I saw this when my father who had been given a grim prognosis, became once again vitally healthy with the help of his ‘miracle worker’ – a naturopath. She became my mentor for a long time and over the next 10 years I studied every modality I could – herbal medicine, colour therapy, reflexology, organic farming/gardening, homœopathy, acupuncture, natural nutrition, cupping, moxibustion, massage, nutriceuticals – anything I found that could help. But let me say here that I am the world’s greatest skeptic – if you have an argument, I have already had it and found answers.

By proxy I moved into writing and lecturing, sat on a number of boards and was a constant lobbyist for health reform. I then found myself in medical research – while I did not find one single day rewarding or beneficial, I did learn from the dishonesty and what I had long believed – that modern medicine was so far off track it was rarely of good use to anyone.

Around this time my daughter became gravely ill with chronic fatigue syndrome that almost claimed her life many times and I vowed that once I found a cure I would share it – I did and I do. My personal battle with this insidious but mostly dismissed disorder cost my family personally, professionally and financially. We were alienated – the financial cost was immeasurable as we descended into debt, trying every ‘magical’ promise out there. By the time I found answers, I had lost everything but the life of my kids. Since then I have vowed to share these answers – even if most people seem to not want to listen.

Shadi3

Natural therapies offer hope alongside sound nutritional and lifestyle advice. But not all natural health professionals are conversant or acquainted with the syndrome. I personally spent many years unable to deal with it simply because I did not know enough about it. I was no better than my medical counterparts who blundered along with awful consequences. I even witnessed a surgeon do a radical hysterectomy on a patient who, in his words, wouldn’t stop complaining so ‘this will give her something to really complain about.’

Go back further in medical history, and you will find oophorectomy (ovarian removal even in teens) was commonplace. Shock treatment for ‘hysteria’ which was more the hormonal side of CFS symptoms is well documented. Sadly things haven’t changed much – CFS is still considered a mental health issue – many claim it is a psychosomatic illness and it is treated as such. Too many cases are not treated with anything other than anti-depressants and addictive analgesia.

I have spent decades researching, writing and trialling health care at my own cost. Much of it has been a huge expense with little benefit. I am happy to share this knowledge, after careful and in depth research. But I recommend that rather than hit and miss, ad hoc trials at different ideas, complete my assessment (see link on this blog – here) for comprehensive health assistance, and the CFS questionnaire is included at no extra charge. This will help you pinpoint and identify what is needed in your own case.

Why are weightloss companies failing you?

weight.jpeg

Anyone who has ever known me or been a patient knows my dislike for weight watching/weight loss groups, programs or plans – especially those advised by pharma, doctors or well known companies. Why?

Because pharma is not trained in health or diet; doctors do 6 hours of nutrition courses in their entire training (equivalent of a fraction of high school human biology); companies are set up purely to make money. Treatments to supposedly help someone lose weight are invariably temporary – and come laden with side effects.

Untrained distributors attend rah-rah meetings and learn how to flog products. Nothing gets me going faster than seeing someone struggling with health, flogging health products – or struggling with weightloss, flogging weightloss products.

FOR A CONFIDENTIAL eHEALTH ASSESSMENT FOR NOT JUST YOUR WEIGHT BUT YOUR LIFE, CLICK HERE

ANY diet set out just to lose weight is doomed to fail you in some way or another. If not, surely every thin person would be free of sickness or chronic disease? That is simply not true. Likewise, it’s not about calories, food pyramid or 5 food groups – these little games were made up by people who had something to gain – usually fame and money – and they have led many generations down a slippery slope of ill health and obesity.

weight-loss-supplements

Likewise, losing weight rapidly like big budget TV weightloss type shows advocate are riddled with issues – starvation tactics are shocking to the body; they do not teach you how to interact with the real healing food; joint/muscle/bone injuries and damage are rife; the organ damage inflicted by such trauma and shock is not a one-off or temporary. It’s permanent. While the makeover end results are great and nice to see, it’s the punishment and self doubt that is soul destroying. And sadly, down the track only a fraction are successful.

weight1

The good news is that there IS a diet that heals, rebuilds at a cellular level AND weightloss is just a welcome side effect. Keep reading to find out how…

cropped-seattle-market-panoramic1

It’s no secret that obese people are among the most malnourished despite the amount of food consumed.There is SO much you can do to get to your ideal weight BUT it must revolve around HEALTH. Healthy living, healthy habits, healthy lifestyle. And for most, these things are alien. So, what to do?

vegan 6.jpg

1. Get alkaline – for any body to be healthy, it must be alkaline – otherwise you are ageing rapidly, acid is increasing your chance of chronic illness, cancer, emotional/psychiatric illness, organ damage and yes, obesity. This point also rings true for people who cannot gain weight. See my links at HERE and link below for the CHAPS eating plan which is a food preparation and diet plan based on Dr Robert Young’s incredible research over many decades and hundreds of thousands of cases, all based around a neutral pH.

0 7 detox

2. Get moving – for some this is very difficult – but even passive exercise will help. It can be as simple as walking outside. In fact, get that vitamin D into you – it is going to have many more benefits than sitting inside thinking about it. Find an exercise program based around your life or abilities. There is an exercise program for us all – it should not be painful, other than occasional muscle burn. If you are confused, see a physio who teaches clinical pilates which will help your health as well as your body. Smashing and pounding your body at a gym may work for a while if you are inspired, but for most a gym membership is a waste.

maxresdefault

3. Stop bad habits – do you drink sugary coke? Coffee? Lots of alcohol? Choc milks or iced coffee? STOP! Don’t cut down – it’s not about moderation – it’s about doing ALL you can to undo the damage you have already inflicted. It’s your only chance on your only body – it’s up to you, not some magical medical procedure or side-effect laden pill.

diabetes-diabesity

4. Find your ‘instead’ – so if you eat a lot of bread, find something else to eat instead – gluten, the protein in wheat and a few other grains, is one of the worst things you can do for your health – pain, inflammation, weight gain, digestive upset, etc. Cut it completely. Find a gluten free bread or crackers – and even luscious snacks by all means but it’s only bad habits that dictate that we must eat it with every meal. Change that habit. If you reach for table salt every meal, use Himalayan salt instead – full of electrolytes and actually good for your cells. If you reach for sugar to go with everything, make sure it’s stevia or xylitol instead. Ask what your INSTEAD is with every single habit and choice. Just because it has the dodgy healthy heart tick or weight watchers stamp of approval does not make it healthy. People actually sit around board tables discussing how to do grant proposals to set these ridiculous programs up. The latest one in Australia is probably the worst yet – Milo gets a top mark for health and wellbeing. Are you kidding me? With actors as usual, faking some form of health and fitness background. By the way, you can still get your chocolate fix

5. Water – yes, this suggestion has been done to death. That is because it’s a valid one! Did you know, if you feel thirsty, your body is already dehydrated? Your brain is the last organ to recognise thirst but once you feel thirsty your body is already in panic mode and going through damaging chemical reactions to cope – and your brain is past needing water – it actually begins to dry out and shrink. Drink water all day, even if you have to sip it. No, don’t add sugary cordials. And no, coffee or tea is not water. Stop tainting it! The only thing I ever suggest going into your water is lemon or lime juice. And for every ‘other’ drink you have – whether it’s alcohol, coffee, tea, iced drinks, fizzy drinks, etc – you need at least another cup of water instead – to undo the damage. While I don’t advocate alcohol, I know in the real world people drink it – so choose less sugary options. Without sugary fizzy additive drinks – instead, use soda water and a dash of fresh lemon or lime. Water down wine with soda water. Instead of club lemon, how about fresh lemon?NOT sugar.

blog2

6. Herbal teas – did you know, you can actually treat your health almost 100% through well chosen herbal teas? Okay so you’d really have to like tea to do that (luckily I have learned to love it) but yes, it can be done. Appetite suppressing tea, energising tea, sleep-inducing tea, lymphatic flushing tea, and so on. There are even fasting teas that help you to go without food… Just a few easy-to-make-at-home ideas (no sweetener or milk):

  • Ginger – balances hormones, soothes/heals digestion, achey joints (grate 1 teaspoon or 1 teaspoon dried, into cup hot water)
  • Parsley – flushes kidneys, clears fluid and acidity (1 teaspoon in hot water with lemon juice)
  • Rosemary – period pain, concentration and antibacterial (1 sprig in hot water)
  • Lemon grass – clears skin and blood (finely chop approx 1 teaspoon and add to hot water)
  • Sage – hormone balancing, calming (1 teaspoon in hot water)
  • Rooibos – tonic (as per directions – no milk)
  • Slippery elm – soothes stomach pain (1 teaspoon in hot water, mix well)
  • Lemon and cayenne – increases thermogenic processes (half teaspoon cayenne in half cup hot water, dash lemon juice)
  • Aloe vera – soothes digestion, skin, great laxative (squeeze contents of a 1 inch slice of aloe leaf into hot water and lemon juice)
  • Psyllium – clears bowel (1 teaspoon dissolved in hot water, with lemon)

blog4

7. Fasting – yes, you heard right. Did you know why ‘break-fast’ is named just so? Because it is meant to be the breaking of the fast. As in you should not have eaten since daybreak the previous day. And yes, that means nothing except water. Few live by this healthy rule any longer. And did you know that contrary to popular folk lore (aka modern day health advice) it does not mean shovel in as many calories as you can? It means eating healthy to fuel your body – FYI fatty food and starchy processed carbs do not fuel your body. So how do you fast? Every night eat a light meal and lots of water.

Sleep.

weight 4

Do not get up and have that midnight snack – make sure there is NOTHING in the fridge or pantry that resembles the life you now lead. The most astounding thing is, yes, you can have ice-cream or cake even – which tastes even better than what you now know as those foods (see free recipe page here – click on photos, albums and recipes are attached to each photo in each section).

In the morning, start with a drink of water with lemon added. If you have digestive problems, have some slippery elm to line the entire GI tract. If you suffer constipation, soak some psyllium in a tall glass of water and allow to soak up – then drink. Either dissolved in hot water or eaten off the spoon, coconut oil will flush not just cellulite but plaque from the bowel.

A detox 3

Then have a smoothie – or a freshly squeezed juice – have both if you have a large appetite or demanding day. If cereal and fruit is your thing, try raw muesli. They will give you more nutrients than any other diet possible. So, by doing this you are fasting every single night – hopefully for 12 hours – so 6 to 6, 7 to 7, or 8 to 8 and so on. And try an easy, occasional fast for real. You will need more preparation for this but you will find more here – HERE

13455522666WMvQA

8. Natural supplements to help heal and rebuild your body – ask yourself why health nuts are usually thin and healthy ‘looking’ – we’re not lucky magical people. Most of us have a chronically ill past but just decided enough was enough. We eat well, even if we feel like gorging some days. We stick to healthy habits – it takes some effort but it’s worth it. We don’t rely on medications to keep us alive – even if some of us did once. We just find a healthy new way to live. As in really live, not just exist.

supps2

Everything I recommend is vegan, organic and ethically sourced – all done for you – and postage from this company (now my chosen supplier due to low costs) is just a few dollars no matter where you are. It’s all affordable – far moreso than buying more food than any of us need every day. So what supplements can help you? There are just so many – find the ones that will help you but please, start with the superfood tonics, healthy foods, superfoods, high nutrients – the stuff that health is made from –

a) Appetite suppressant (healthy kind) – HERE
b) Digestive/vital organ tonic/thyroid tonic/lymphatic flush – HERE
c) Fat burning/metaboliser (non chemical) – HERE
d) Thermogenic/detox tea – HERE
e) Sugar/fat metabolism – HERE
f) Superfood/tonic/vitamin/antioxidant/herbal (vital) – HERE
g) Trace elements/minerals/energy (vital) – HERE
h) Essential fatty acids/Omegas 3/6/9 – HERE
i) Superfood meal replacement – HERE

– none of the above have the same bad side effects that are linked to so many pharma-based diet pills and treatments. They simply work. It’s not about the latest fad, or the VLCD which is a starvation diet that your body is going to rebel against; ever noticed why all these poor girls, excited about ‘advising’ you on TV ads, still carrying the extra weight – are nowhere to be seen down the track? When it fails they simply find another girl to do the ad, and so on.

vegan-weight-loss-diet-pics-1024x535.jpg

(See Elizabeth’s before an after pics above)

If weightloss comes without health, what is the point? I’ve lost count of the number of weightloss patients who came to me AFTER they lost the weight and were seriously ill. Get healthy – weightloss will follow.

Constipation – today’s ‘normal’?

Recently I came upon what I initially believed to be a really good parenting website – well sorry guys, for mums only apparently –  as only mums offer ‘sound’ advice on all things parenting. Pfft.

As usual, it was filled with health and advice topics but it wasn’t long before I was gritting my teeth and chomping to start posting. Mothers were actually suggesting that other mothers were wrong in using a healthy diet. To go and discuss diet with doctors, who are untrained in nutrition. I was the 5th alternative health professional to try and comment. You could hear the tumbleweeds. Other mothers who argued that they had raised children using safe and effective natural health methods were attacked.  If I didn’t force myself away I am pretty sure I could be responding for the next year – such is the level of misinformation on health care out there.

As parenting slides down the slippery slope from something natural, to something that now requires constant medical, media and big brother monitoring I have to ask – how did something that should be instinctual, become so tightly bound in fear and manipulation? Kids are actually being abused and tortured in the name of health in 2015. There is now a common procedure within paediatric medicine which involves insertion of a nasogastric tube, administration of strong aperients and minerals, to drag the digestive system clean. It is painful and traumatic. Manual evacuation of impacted faeces is also common. But we can’t mention diet or gentle therapies?

maxresdefault

The most basic of issues are now serious medical issues. Drugs are prescribed for even the minor concerns – no one seems aware that those scheduled drugs have side effects. Surgery is seen as some achievement – it’s pretty commonplace nowadays to see a gaggle of excited/tired mums gather and boast of the paediatrician, specialists and latest surgical procedures.

images-24

My kids were seen as an oddity while growing up and they each, at different times, came to me asking if I would let them be a ‘normal kid’ – why? “Because all my friends have had operations, needles, are on medications, see specialists or psychiatrists.”

blog4

Don’t get me wrong, raising 4 children was no walk in the park, especially for a (mostly) single parent. It’s just that I actively sought the best, most effective, SAFE options every single time extra effort was needed. And aside from an occasional plaster cast, there was ALWAYS an alternative.

images-9

So too with digestive disorders. Let’s get back to the basics – in utero, a baby’s body is formed based on a cocktail of DNA, heredity, chemical exposure, diet, stress and medications/supplementation. The digestion is already gearing for assault. If not delivered naturally, the most fundamental process for health is not transferred from mother to child – natural immunity and probiotic formation. If that basic nutrient/chemical is not supplemented after birth, the child is already set for some major health issues. This stems from poor immunity and digestive disorders and affects every aspect of health.

Unknown-7

Then, the choice between breast feeding and bottle feeding rears its ugly head. This article is not an exercise in ethics or guilt but the simple fact is, the western world is the only sector where it is a ‘choice’ – and for some mystical reason millions of westerners ‘can’t’ breastfeed. I wonder why we are any different? For me it was not even a question – I would have done anything to make sure I could feed my baby the healthiest way possible – and sadly, in my circle of friends, I was the only one who did. With the middle child, the same thing. And with the twins, while even midwives and doctors went on about my ‘choices’ I didn’t see it. Even when it became obvious that just one side was ‘working’ I still fed both of them up to 12 months. No heroics, it was the best and I took steps to make sure it worked. Herbs, supplements, diet – I made it work.

images-28

Why is this so important? Somewhere along the line, vaccines and antibiotics took over where mother’s milk once stood. What naturally builds over time – natural immunity and protection – is now long gone. By the time a child reaches 1 year old, their bowel is no longer making red blood cells* and many food intolerances are ignored.

  • For the record, the true place of RBC manufacture is the large intestine – over time, as damage increases, the spleen and then bones take over – in turn, leeching vital nutrients (calcium, magnesium, silica etc) and causing osteoporotic processes while in childhood. Rather than address this with the simplest method – diet, we have become conditioned to ignore it until it becomes life threatening.

images-10

Why do you need to know this information? Well considering health begins in the digestive system, unless we address it from an early age, we are facing chronic ill health. Why is it considered quite okay to just wait to see if we end up with cancer, diabetes, and so on? Why do we now think sickness is a part of old age? It’s not. And yet it is.

We are happy to say we have allergies, yet loathe to do anything about it – yet by simply going alkaline, allergies become a thing of the past. No, we’d rather go and get a medicine that comes with a host of side effects. Worse still, we’d rather go and have a camera invading our bowel just to be told what, that we have a slow digestion?

What food intolerances are precursors or even long term effects of constipation? Has your doctor ever mentioned the importance of body pH? Yet it is THE most vital aspect of health.

Unknown

Are you intentionally missing certain foods? Why is that? And more importantly, who told you this? Did you know that doctors study an elective 6 hours maximum of nutrition? And that most dietitians learn their advice from industry written books? That means people who have something to sell – wheat, dairy, meat and sugar industry. Did you get your advice from them?

Find out why the intestines of some small children are double the size of an adult’s.

In the full article, see why our eyes are linked to the health of our bowel. And find out why certain bacteria could be the difference between bowel health or your excretory system packing it in altogether. An iridologist can determine if a patient has a constipation issue without even having to use any special iriscope. It is that obvious, as the toxins begin to leech into surrounding organs and circulation. Eventually the kidneys, liver and even reproductive system are badly effected as they attempt to excrete the toxic buildup.

Unicorn Gold is a ‘before-you-squat’ potty spray. Just a few sprays of Unicorn Gold into the toilet bowl and that, skunky, putrid bathroom stench stays where it belongs – trapped deep below the surface of the toilet water. Made with REAL GOLD!

While I don’t recommend constant or excessive use of any aperient/laxative medicines, surely making an organ do its job is better than waiting for something irreversible? There are many foods that help with occasional constipation like prunes, citrus, apricots, even some chewing gums – but each of these is acidic so all they are doing is shocking the body on a temporary basis. The overall aim is to rebalance the body.

images-12

What illnesses and symptoms are linked to constipation?

  • Anal fissure (tearing)
  • Hæmorrhoids
  • Diverticulitis
  • Abdominal pain
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Colo-rectal cancer
  • Belching, bloating & flatulence
  • Weightgain
  • Nausea & vomiting
  • Impaction & bowel rupture
  • Enlarged bowel
  • Anæmia
  • Fertility issues
  • Headaches

What issues can be associated or cause constipation?

  • Medication side effects
  • Low natural probiotic reserves
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Iron & calcium supplements
  • Analgesia side effects
  • Low water and oil intake
  • Incorrect posture
  • Incorrect toileting posture
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction or injury
  • Hormone imbalance, especially œstrogen dominance
  • Pregnancy
  • Low dietary fibre

For more information on the correct diet, please see my threads on the pH miracle. But what about at-home measures that not only correct elimination regardless of age, but prevent and even reverse chronic health issues?

Probiotics – The human body consists of 90% pathogens and parasites – most of them beneficial. However, once there is an imbalance, the digestive and immune systems decline. Probiotics have many functions and are safe for use during pregnancy, for infants right through to old age. This formula has not just digestive tonics that are safe and gentle, but also a powerful probiotic that will assist in digestion, elimination and immunity – Probioactive – suitable for use in infancy and childhood. If you prefer a drop formula – Jarro-dophilus will better suit you. For older children, these chewable Berry-dophilus will help make it fun. Adult/family probiotics – Power-Dophilus.

Vital oils

  • 1 teaspoon (children) or 1 tablespoon (over 12) of coconut oil daily will not only work as a gentle laxative but release colonic plaque buildup.
  • For chronic issues and to avoid surgery, 1 teaspoon (children) or 1 tablespoon (over 12) of castor oil will relax the bowel and stimulate peristalsis while moving impaction and buildup.

Toileting habits

In many cultures and in history, humans squatted to straighten the lower bowel and evacuate sufficiently. This is especially effective when dealing with weak pelvic floors, those affected by long term medication or constipation, as it alleviates straining. There are many who prefer a squatting toilet, however in the western world most would prefer to sit. In this case you can use a simple small footstool to elevate both feet while on the toilet. This is one of the most simplest but effective measures for those with limited mobility.

FTLACWQI21R2FQB.MEDIUM

Enema – many cultures use this simple at-home method on a regular basis to aid with removal of both parasites and constipation. Soap pellets are a common treatment in many African nations – mixed with herbs, they are an effective alternative to soap enemas still used in hospitals today. Simple saline enemas can be purchased, washed and re-used by using coffee, oil or soapy water. This is especially good for someone who is constipation long term – the impaction can be impossible to shift from top down, so moving things from the bottom up is the way to deal with it safely and effectively. Larger enema kits can be purchased online but the small saline 150ml bottles are more than enough.

brucemedical_2272_6254744

Movement – simple movement. In infants, this can mean gentle pushing up and straightening of the legs repeatedly (warning – this must be done gently and was their muscles allow rather than forcing). Once a regular practice by new mothers and taught by child health nurses, it has all but disappeared. In older children, sedentary lives lead into worsening problems in adults. It’s no coincidence that a dog or horse, upon exercise, will evacuate within a relatively short time of exerting themselves. Movement can also include a form of acupressure which needs no professional instruction. Beginning under the rib cage and working down in straight lines, from the centre of the abdomen to just above the pubic bone, repeat to each side, then again further out until you have made four imaginary lines each side of the median – simply by pressing and releasing gently, as if you are massaging. Press and release – move the hands down a centimetre or two, press and release, move the hands down again and continue to repeat. This works in a combination of massaging the bowel contents and correcting imbalances of the digestion.

Constipation does not ‘just’ happen. It is the end result of many things. It is neither normal or part of a healthy lifestyle. As all things lead to digestion and bowel health, it is imperative that it is dealt with swiftly and in an ongoing manner. I have sadly heard of too many deaths from bowel-related health, including 100% unnecessary and unavoidable intestinal ruptures, to not want to write on this subject. Constipation in infants and children is at the highest level ever, despite access to fresh food and water, as is chronic ill health. It is up to every parent to ensure it is dealt with before it becomes a life threatening issue.

SETTING UP A HOME HEALTH CARE DISPENSARY

175

Call it what you like – chest, box, cupboard, box-under-the-bed, bathroom cabinet or some of our more humorous friends, ‘stash’..

Whatever your preferred name, every home, even if you live in a bus or out of your car – needs a dedicated health care/management dispensary. This can include a mix of every modality on earth – basically, all of the true, tried and tested first aid, creams, potions and solutions your family cannot live without.

BE PREPARED!!!

So, how do you establish a safe, effective medicine chest in your own home? To go onto a pharmacy or even discount supermarket and set up a good dispensary would cost you hundreds of dollars. One of the reasons I set up an account with iHerb, which now allows my network to not only get discounts on everything but also an extra $10 off at checkout by ensuring my coupon code of LSH273 appears before payment.

Simply go via my link here and set up a free, no pressure account to order what you need, as you need it.

  • Basic first aid –
  • Storage
  • Bandages (clean, cotton gauze)
  • Swabs (clean cotton gauze or cotton wool)
  • Disinfectants (herbal, non toxic)
  • Creams (pawpaw, hypericum, etc)
  • Extra assortment of little handy first aiders (pen torch, sting/splinter removers, forceps, scissors, ice/heat packs, etc)
  • Pharmaceuticals (mild analgesia, electrolytes, etc)
  • Tissue salts – by far, the most effective first aid kit in the world – each simplex – along with a guide booklet –

Mag Phos, Silicea, Nat Mur, Nat Sulph, Nat Phos, Calc Fluor, Calc Phos, Calc Sulph, Kali Mur, Kali Phos, Kali Sulph, Ferrum Phos – I guarantee every single health issue on the planet can be aided by use of one or more of these remedies. I have seen true miracles happen even in emergencies, in transit to hospital and when geographical location prevented us seeking medical assistance.

  • Rescue Remedy – by far the most single important remedy to carry.
  • Homoeopathic nosodes – still one of the world’s best immune enhancing steps.
  • Nutraceuticals and herbal tinctures
  • Homoeopathy see Chrysalis Botiquin  – used for decades to provide number one health care for many families.

By using this basic kit, I can guarantee that your family’s health will be much better off. In fact, thousands of families now follow these basic guidelines and rarely need medical attention.

Of course, discretion is required, but in most cases, a well equipped home medicine chest is the best protection your family can have to ensure you do not lean heavily on our health system or need frequent trips to the local clinic. It’s not luck, it’s effective, common sense.

As for a HOME HEALTH DISPENSARY, don’t set up a home without it. You can also find an alternative first aid kit suggestions on the Chrysalis homeopathic site on the ailment list page.

Please be sure to read ALL threads on this blog which point to your family’s needs. They will help ensure you are well prepared and stocked to deal with anything.

And what do you do in place of vaccines? The good news is that while no vaccine is safe or even offers the protection we are told, there are literally hundreds of options for any illness or symptom set for which there is a vaccine. Please become acquainted with these.
