Ross River Virus – Implications and chronic effects

moz

Ross River Virus is a virus purportedly spread by mosquitoes much in the same way as malaria. Most cases are not reported as they are mistaken for influenza simply because the symptoms are very similar. In fact, many cases that present clinically are diagnosed as the flu – and most disappear by themselves through strong immunity.

Those who are immune compromised (having recently had vaccinations, antibiotics or serious chronic health issues) make up the numbers – and only those who have lived or visited heavily infested mosquito areas (where RRV is known to be present) are diagnosed with Ross River – usually because the patient has advised their recent exposure. Ross River is not carried by every mosquito and like other insect borne illness, it is dependent upon geography rather than the large presence of mosquitoes in any given area.

According to Notifiable Infectious Disease Reports, WA Department of Health, while there has been an increase in notifications, it tends to be more of a case that doctors are aware of the activities of a patient, instead of an actual increase in cases.

Around 100,000 cases are recorded annually – usually across the top end of Australia, however it is being more and more reported in low-lying areas such as the south west of WA. According to the Dept of Health,  Ages affected are mostly 39-45; with no real indication of why this age group is most affected.

It is usually classified as a non-fatal virus, however those affected in the long term develop myalgic encephalomyelitis (also known as ME/chronic fatigue syndrome). Initial symptoms include flu like inflammatory symptoms. Mismanaged cases that worsen and develop in chronicity display marker symptoms such as joint pain and swelling (mainly in the extremities), lethargy, myalgia, rash (involving the trunk and limbs), fever, headache and depression. These symptoms are identical in nature to chronic fatigue syndrome which is usually mismanaged medically and diagnosed as depression and fibromyalgia – and treated medically with anti depressants, NSAIDs and strong analgesia – and compound the illness as the patient develops addictions and dependence on the medications.

Development – with an incubation period after mosquito exposure of 7 to 9 days (but with a possible range of 3 to 21 days), diagnosis is often hit and miss as it closely mirrors many other viral symptom sets.

Diagnosis – Blood tests will detect viral loads and those displaying a positive IgM or a 4-fold rise on IgG titre is diagnostic of RRV disease – such cases usually display a range of very slight (and often overlooked) markers –

  • Eosinophilia
  • Splenomegaly
  • Anæmia
  • Blood viral markers

Concomitant symptoms –

  • Photophobia
  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • Rash
  • Painful and swollen joints – especially knees, ankles, wrists, fingers, jaw, neck, shoulder, back, elbow, wrist, hip, hands, feet and toes
  • Lymphadenopathy (enlarged glands)
  • Sore throat
  • Coryza (watery eyes)
  • Neck stiffness
  • Enlarged abdominal organs

Fucoidan and bone degeneration

Recently I’ve had many discussions and questions concerning skeletal and rheumatic disorders, and what could be done to reverse them – or at the very least, prevent further development and suffering.

Please see my blog posts on the alkaline diet – which resolves health issues at a cellular (including stem cell) level. We simply MUST remove acidic foods from the diet if we are serious about not suffering. Otherwise, we are faced with simply chasing symptoms as they continue to harm our health. This includes sugar, dairy, grains, meat and of course pseudo foods (processed and additives). Genetically modified foods and products also fall into this category but the damage is proving to be far more alarming as our own genes are affected and altered.

The supplement I have seen most effective in treating inflammation is a brown seaweed based extract called fucoidan. There are around 1000 scientific studies on PubMed and even more in respected journals. As with any supplement, this has been pounced upon by pharma in order to cash in on a good thing. Many of these companies have in fact approached the company I recommend in order to manufacture for them as the quality is of such a pure and concentrated nature.

Our bones do not just break down by chance – acidic food, poor posture, injury, exposure to toxins, repeated pounding – all add up to permanent damage. There are now many ‘diagnoses’ for an ever-increasing number of new bone diseases, yet they all come back to the same thing – acidity and habits/lifestyle.

Along with bone degeneration comes excruciating pain – it is the neural involvement that must be addressed.

Research is often boring and something most do not wish to bother with. So I am hoping this summary will allow readers to avoid such measures. (Ref http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/)

Osteoarthritis is the most common and disabling form of arthritis experienced by an increasing number of people as the population ages. It is characterized by a slow and progressive degeneration of articular cartilage. Whilst it is often regarded as a disease of “wear and tear” through ageing, osteoarthritis has a strong genetic component and is also affected by injury and by diseases such as obesity. In addition to the cartilage itself, osteoarthritis also involves the surrounding tissues, including the synovium and the subchondral bone. Osteoarthritis has an inflammatory component, and undoubtedly, a powerful tissue breakdown component which result in pain and stiffness.

Several recent studies indicate a role of fucoidan in addressing the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Park et al. used a model of collagen induced arthritis, and showed that orally administered Undaria pinnatifida fucoidan successfully inhibited pain. In a small human clinical study, osteoarthritis symptoms were significantly inhibited by oral administration of fucoidan rich seaweed extract. Over three months, symptoms were reduced by 52%. This result is a marked improvement for osteoarthritis symptoms. There was no reduction in TNF alpha which was used as inflammation marker, but an accompanying study in healthy volunteers showed a decrease in Interleukin 6, a marker for chronic inflammation.

The mechanism for the clinically observed reduction in pain of osteoarthritis is unclear. Was pain decreased by the blockade of neutrophils? Cunha showed that fucoidan successfully blocked the accumulation of neutrophils and pain nociception. Cunha’s study emphasized the importance of neutrophils as an originator of inflammatory hypernociception and confirmed that fucoidan blocks the accumulation of neutrophils by selectin blockade in their model.

Neuronal Protection

Increasing interest in reducing or reversing brain ageing and disease has seen many agents assessed for their effects on neurons and brain function. Alzheimer’s is a brain disease that causes significant and highly distressing loss of function. It is characterized by the accumulation of beta amyloid plaques in the brain tissue. It has been hypothesized that Alzheimer’s is associated with Herpes infections in the central nervous system. The relatively large size of fucoidan precludes penetration of the blood brain barrier but as noted below, systemic administration was effective in maintaining neuronal function in a mouse model.

Fucoidan shows promise in protecting brain function in a number of ways. It has been comprehensively assessed by Jhamandas for effects on current in neurons and also on the neurotoxic effects caused by beta amyloid in primary culture neuronal cells. Fucus vesiculosis fucoidan at one micromolar concentration could inhibit currents by 15%. It was also able to reverse the current blocking effects of beta amyloid. Fucoidan did not inhibit the aggregation of beta amyloid, but did protect primary cultures of  basal forebrain cholinergic neurons, against amyloid induced cell death.

Cui’s recent research centered on a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) activated microglial cells. Microglia are usually resting cells in the brain, but if activated, for example by LPS, they change shape, become active and secrete inflammatory mediators and nitric oxide (NO). If too much activation takes place, surrounding neuronal cells die, instigating more inflammation and beginning a cycle of neurodegeneration. 62.5 mcg/mL fucoidan was able to prevent shape change in the LPS exposed microglial cultures, and 125 mcg/mL inhibited NO production. In 2004 Li demonstrated the characteristic fragmented DNA (fDNA) observed in neuronal nuclei in Alzheimer brain was taken up by adjacent activated microglia which then became activated. Blocking the scavenger receptors on the microglial cells with Fucus vesiculosis fucoidan at 40 ng/mL suppressed this uptake.

Pei also demonstrated the scavenger receptors on microglial cells could be successfully blocked by fucoidan. Huang used time lapse recording to investigate how microglia are involved in the growth of amyloid plaques.Fucus vesiculosis fucoidan at 10 micromolar concentration was able to inhibit the amyloid induced microglical clustering effect that gave rise to plaques. Do presented a study on tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) and interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) induced NO production in glioma cells. Fucoidan inhibited NO production in this model system via a number of signaling pathways.

Luo, from the same research team as Cui, investigated the effects of the same Laminaria japonica fucoidan fraction in a model of Parkinson’s disease in mice [97]. The Parkinson’s inducing agent was given on the 11th day an hour after injection of fucoidan. There was a clear dose dependent protection by fucoidan at 25 mg/kg body weight, including inhibition of lipid peroxidation, enzyme functions and glutathione levels. 

So, what fucoidan product should you use? There are many on the market – our own research has shown that for a comparable product, the monthly cost to be anything between $300 and $800US per month. Yet I have found a Practitioner quality option for around $30 per month – www.goo.gl/C8yvYf

I personally use this product for many purposes within my family, including endometriosis, chronic fatigue, headaches, migraine, arthritis and anti aging. Professionally, I find there may be no limit to its inclusion in any individual seeking good health and in fighting the ravages of time.

PAIN – why do we have it and what can we do?

PAIN – the word itself sparks fear into the toughest specimens. And while it keeps pharma rolling in dough to the tune of billions annually, it also is the crux of millions of cases of addiction – with not a cure in sight. And by then, the addiction becomes the issue, rather than what actually caused the pain in the first place.

Aside from mechanical injury or obvious triggers such as labour, what is pain? Basically, it is a side effect of inflammation. Inflammation causes swelling, acid and chemical deposits in areas they are not natural – hence the pain.

How interesting then, now that syndromes such as Chronic Fatigue are being drawn into the medical and pharma game, companies such as Pfizer are advertising for a blatant money grab on our TVs. Doctors, who just months ago laughed and dismissed such pain as psychosomatic; treatable only with anti depressants and addictive pain relief, are now ‘recognising’ your pain and using it to make even more money – and by the end of it, still no explanation – or cure.

Despite being a natural health professional, I was first and foremost a nurse. I would never be so ignorant to dismiss a very real need for analgesia. Patients were often surprised at being told during a consult that I recommended pharmaceutical pain relief. I am no stranger to pain – having broken a bone in my neck, having had numerous fractures, difficult labour and migraines over the years, I firmly believe that healing from anything is impossible with too much pain – it is simply hindered. And many people are unable to escape pain – due to congenital issues, poor healing of injuries and so on.

However, I have seen an astounding number of chronic pain and inflammatory issues removed with natural methods. A large percentage of this would be due to dietary changes. Many foods are inflammatory and many foods are healing. Firstly it is up to you to remove foods you know you have a sensitivity to.

This usually involves acidic foods –

Remove these and often pain will go. Please see more on my pH correct diet posts on this blog.

Many therapies exist to remove or reduce pain. Cupping is a therapy which can easily be performed at home  — please inbox me for more details. I have seen appalling injuries and pain removed with this simple therapy. Likewise with osteopathy and chiropractic – decades long cases of pain ca become a thing of the past.

Gentle measures such as aromatherapy and massage are often helpful – and acupuncture, especially if done with electrical stimulation, can correct the most chronic of cases.

Incorporating kitchen herbs and medicinal herbs into your daily routine can work miracles. This can be taken in the form of a tea – Tulsi tea (sacred basil) is an adaptogenic and can often correct whatever is out of balance. Comfrey tea is especially good for bone pain. Licorice is a wonderful anti inflammatory type tea, especially for mucosa type irritation.

Homeopathy is my first love when it comes to medicine. Most cases during my career came to me when they had exhausted all other avenues – and most were seemingly incurable. Yet I saw miracle after miracle. Depending on whether it is nerve pain (Gelsemium), dental pain (Chamomilla), period pain (Cimifuga), bone pain (Arnica) – or so much more, it’s astounding to see such suffering relieved with a few drops of well chosen remedy in water!

More on contemporary remedies here – please inbox if you can’t find what you need –

Chrysalis Integrative Homeopathics

And then we get to supplements. While there are many formulations out there specifically for pain, I have my favourite supplements whose aim is anti inflammatory. My favourite anti inflammatory is (fucoidan) – the indications range from cancer pain to arthritic pain – even unexplained pain such as fibromyalgia. By far, the purest, most effective formulation can be found in fucoidan – an intensified extract which has pain sufferers reporting improvement within days – even better long term.

And you can read on PubMed for yourself. There are actually thousands of studies into myriad health issues and inflammations. Much more is explained on this link, where you can also order at wholesale –

More here (there are other herbal antiinflammatories which are capable of addressing the inflammation rather than the symptoms caused by it).

Don’t ever feel bad for needing analgesia – but if you find that you are using it long term without improvement – or you may even find your current issue is dependent upon addiction rather than the original issue, it may be time for you to remove the inflammatory triggers and build up in your body and allow your body to heal. A life without pain is often a dream for too many people. But it could be a reality.

Bell’s Palsy – accidental or a warning of things to come?

Bells’ palsy affects less than 1% of the population and has a number of causes – all of which are treatable and preventable. And no, it’s not a drug treatment nor can it be prevented by a vaccine. Usually affecting people between 15 and 60 years of age, it can be triggered by a virus, diet or be a precursor to a stroke. Bell’s palsy can also be a long term effect of a stroke and is very different to simple Bell’s palsy.

It has been linked to sarcoidosis, lyme disease, heart disease and blood clotting factors. It gives no warning and aside from drooping of one side of the face, and sometimes numbness, it doesn’t affect other parts of the body. It usually corrects itself but if left alone, it can sometimes leave the lop-sided or raised eyebrow appearance permanently.

Image

If an auto-immune link is noted, the health picture overall needs to be addressed, whether lyme, sarcoidosis, CFS/ME or any other similar issue. Please don’t just see the palsy as the issue (more on these issues on this blog). Facial/cranial nerve inflammation is apparent and while some report pain, it is generally painless.

Image

An alarming movement by medicine/pharma is to now use Bell’s Palsy as a ‘diagnostic tool’ to prove you have HIV/AIDS. This is just one of the everyday health issues now being used to try and continue the lie that is HIV – while they scramble to find more to support their theories as the world moves closer and closer to seeing through all the hype. As they get more desperate, they are closing in on all sides, just to plant more fear where common sense used to exist.

So what can you do?

My immediate answer to this is see your Homœopath, Naturopath, Chiropractor, Osteopath or Acupuncturist.

images-36

Each of these therapies can assist. If it is virus related, you are best to go onto an anti-viral program to rebalance the body – this will usually involve high dose anti oxidants and herbals which fight long term viral effects.

images-14

Æsthetically, gentle massage, reflexology, spinal adjustments, cupping and acupuncture will help rebalance and correct your appearance. If you are worried about your blood, please have a Live Blood Analysis and Bioresonance testing – or if accessible, Infra Red Imaging to ensure your blood is healthy, ensure there is no blood clot risk, and that both blood and lymph are optimal.

0-4

By far, my favourite (and most successful for me clinically) is homœopathic care.

So what homœopathic remedies will help?

Homœopathic remedies of good choice (ie clinically proven) are –
If there is stress about health and the individual worries a lot – Agaricus
If they feel weak and one eye closed or nearly closed – Cadmium
If the symptoms came on slowly – Causticum
If they have allergies or back pain and speech is difficult – Dulcamara
If they are irritable, impatient and very sensitive – Nux Vomica

If one eyebrow is raised or they have numbness anywhere – Platinum

Natural Home Medicine Kit
Homoeopathy should be considered for every home, where people are seriously dedicated to safe and effective health care and maintenance.

Any of these in a 30c dosage – if you can only get 30x or less, that is fine also but I just prefer 30c as you don’t need to take it so often. Something else to remind you of now, is to set up your own homœopathic dispensary so you can be well prepared for any future health issue. This can save days/nights in emergency, can prevent symptoms from worsening – and yes, it saves many lives a year.

So, what supplements can you safely take to turn this around?

There are many I would recommend but it would be lazy and irresponsible to just suggest a heap and think everyone is going to respond the same way. I recommend oral chelation therapy, blood and lymphatic cleansing, detoxing and dedicated protocols depending on your own health history so feel free to do my online assessment for a comprehensive analysis and personalised/confidential response which will include all necessary recommendations – http://chrysalisintegratedhealth.org/2014/11/11/your-online-assessment/

If brain health is in question, you will need to clean up the circulation and prevent toxic overload which is something that is forgotten in general by the medical system. A clinically-trialed brain tonic is recommended, especially if memory or even Alzheimer’s is a concern.

images-32

If there is a history of stroke, impaired circulation or tuberculosis, then these issues must be treated – not with anti biotics and chemotherapy, but with alkaline food and drink, bicarb (see my posts on alkaline diet), herbal medicine and acupuncture. In my experience, most people who suffer Bell’s Palsy have terrible diets, high stress levels and are not interested in taking natural health advice, or changing their lifestyle. The truth is, making these simple changes not only remove Bell’s Palsy but prevent it from becoming more serious – AND improve the overall health permanently.

The thing is, Bell’s Palsy can happen to ANYONE. But contrary to what I see frequently, it is not a death sentence, nor should you undergo drastic surgery or treatment ‘just in case’…

Unknown-5

Finally, I’d like to see everyone stick to a health diet – you can see my posts on getting your body alkaline – which will in turn positively effect EVERY HEALTH ISSUE known to humans. Also, my ebook can be found here – it will help you learn easily, regardless of your culinary skills, age or geographical location, just how to turn your pantry, fridge and health around –

Curing CFS/ME, lyme, fibro at home

26-07-04_1758

The recently alarming jump from dismissal to sudden experts in Chronic Fatigue/Lyme/Fibro etc is of very little benefit to sufferers. Please know these truths –

There is no cure-all

There is not and never will be an effective vaccine or magic pill

Invisible disease IS curable

Invisible disease is NOT in your mind, nor is it depression or psychosomatic

You are not doomed to a life of suffering and despair

The truth is, many people have found the answer – there is no one piece to this massive puzzle but ensuring you take part in all the suggestions will result in improvement and eventual recovery. Of course many factors figure in – duration you have been ill, how deep seated your symptoms are, whether you can do all components simultaneously to avoid chasing symptoms, your living environment and yes, even your finances.

Most sufferers, by the time I get to see them, are out of work, very depressed and frustrated. Most believe that there is no hope, even more are still stuck on the medical merry-go-round. Without a decent income, without any support apart from additive drugs (which in itself becomes a medical issue) and without either understanding or support network.

Please feel free to print this information off and follow it to a T. I cannot stress that every single piece to this awful puzzle is vital – by the time I found the cure for my daughter, we had spent tens of thousands of dollars, were heavily in debt and had no support network outside of our family – being an integrative health professional, even colleagues turned away, seeing my obstinacy and determination as silliness, and my daughter’s symptoms as psychosomatic at best.

One particularly difficult day, after she’d been told once again that while it was all in her mind, she was dying and no, there were no welfare payments that fit her criteria. She had collapsed in public and people were stepping over her, making fun of the ‘drunk and anorexic druggie’… That day I vowed that once I found answers, I would share them – I did eventually and I do share them still today. Unfortunately, due to clever grooming via the various health professionals out there, most sufferers are of the mind they will never heal – and do themselves a disservice by refusing to even consider that any protocol just may work. It has worked for thousands, and I am yet to see one case not improve using it.

Each case is different, yet each possesses many similar symptoms. As an integrative professional I don’t concern myself with causes or diagnoses. Instead, I address the whole body, deficiencies, cellular weakness and environment. And it works.

Many cases of invisible disease are not diagnosed – simply because not enough health professionals know enough about it, so choose to dismiss it. I have overheard too many of them not just say it does not exist, but make fun of sufferers – as malingerers, psychiatric or even psychosomatic cases.

Misuse of prescription and possibly addictive drugs is rife in the ‘care’ of invisible diseases. My daughter was refused medical assistance on the grounds that she wanted neither anti-depressants or addictive analgesics. In hindsight they did us a favour as it spurred me on to research and trial everything I could.

In a previous blog post  dated 27 May 2013 titled Do I have Lyme/Fibro/CFS you will be able to identify with the symptom sets associated with invisible disease. Most of them are undetectable by any known testing means – hence the ‘invisible illness’ tag. Regardless, by following the steps you will be able to improve each symptom as your body responds at a cellular level. It’s no easy fix, and while I advise a support network for at least the basic assistance, I have patients who are now back living amazing lives without the luxury of that support.

Regardless of pathology or history, if the issues are all addressed, the body can begin to heal. Sci Fi and gullible media stories have the public believing some man-made vaccine will cure a man-made illness (lyme, etc) when this simply is not true. No one knows for sure yet what causes it – and why entire families can contract invisible disease while others do not. I have had patients presenting with 4 or 5 viruses and a history of tick bites – they respond equally as well, as those who simply had EB virus.

Each case is hit and miss, I wont lie. 

And every single case has a different combination of onset triggers – virus, toxic chemical poisoning, heavy metal toxicity, trauma, diet, surgery shock, etc.

Step 1 – is identifying lifestyle factors that are prolonging suffering – we can’t undo what started the process but we can stop this in its tracks. My daughter’s case still took me 3 whole years even though I addressed her illness every single day – it seemed like decades but I have known many patients who have suffered for decades. 

Part of my resolve to help others is the way sufferers are treated in society – that includes in medicine and welfare, education and employment.

Cure must begin with diet and immediate environment – getting a support network on board is one of the hardest parts – the other is affordability. 2/3 patients will only do what I recommend half heartedly – not because they don’t want to listen, but because they have given up on ‘miracles’. I test for allergies and chemical/metal triggers in my clinic and CFS patients always show up – admittedly my machine is more sensitive so when someone has already exhausted all medical testing and come back NAD that means nothing to me – they will show up here. Organ function is impaired, neural damage is obvious. Allergies factor high and nutrient imbalance is usually extreme, even if taking supplements. 

By the time a patient is at the point we can all identify with, most nutrients simply flush through – the digestive system is sufficiently damaged to ensure the body no longer recognises individual molecules.

I liken it to a watering hose, the type you dig underground. It has tiny perforations along it and seeps water into the surrounding earth. If that hose had marbles poured inside along with water, still only water would get through and it would become blocked. Same with CFS sufferers – nutrient molecular structure somehow becomes too large for our bodies to assimilate. (And no, there is not much study out there on this – they are my own theories but they are working).

I began with homœopathic cell salts to help the body work more like a nutrient magnet. Then I introduced a broad spectrum tonic and a colloidal mineral together (not the same as the silver, different use and purpose) which then allow minute fragments of nutrient absorption. I highly recommend acupuncture and bodywork such as osteopathy and chiropractic.

Step 2 – Vitamin D – I don’t recommend supplementation in high doses such as is becoming the rage – just 15 minutes outdoors daily WITHOUT sunglasses (our irises absorb 98% of beneficial rays, not our skin). CFS mirrors advanced cancer in that the body picture is very alike – low in vitamin D, low immune function, etc. 

Those who ignore my suggestion to get alkaline do not respond as fast as they could and any improvement is usually short lived.

Step 3 – Alkalinity is the most vital component of curing CFS. Testing urine daily to ensure you are at 7.4 is the marker. Removing chemical triggers – whether they be implants, medications, cleaning products, unfiltered water, etc is equally important. Sometimes metal detox is necessary, and sometimes viral/bacterial treatment is necessary (though never with antibiotics or similar). And prescription previously ranged to more than half a dozen supplements.

Step 4 – 

Supplementation – please complete the assessment via the link on this site for your own dedicated list.

– I have always been a fan of superfood tonics over tablets,  and it’s enough to live life again. 

From here, depending on individual symptoms, we address anything else that may hold the cure back – if hormonal, the progesterone cream that I recently got my hands on works faster and better than anything I have ever used (and I have been recommending hormonal natural treatment for almost 20 years). Allergies will be addressed, pain is addressed and ensures new cell growth is optimum every 30 days rather than weaker and weaker as CFS does.

It is a good idea to save time and money (and prevent days missing out on treatment) for you to simply set up an Auto Ship, which is sent out each month and your bonus dollars are automatically put towards the next orders.

SIMPLE ADDITIONAL STEPS TO GET ON THE OFF-RAMP –

1.  Bicarbonate of soda. Or aluminium free baking powder. This is the foundation for alkalising the body. Of course that does not mean eating and drinking and doing what made you sick in the first place, and hoping bicarb will fix it all, but believe me, it is vital. Simply put, our body expires (dies) if our blood turns acidic. It must be maintained by a slightly alkaline pH and to do this, it must draw alkaline salts (bicarb etc) from soft tissue. It is much more complex than this, but in effect, the body becomes acidic to save the blood – and life. Yes, we have natural acids in our bodies, but the truth is, very few functions need this acid. We must get alkaline to undo chronic ill health. So, one teaspoon of bicarb morning and night in warm water or soda water will do it. At first, it will increase excretion because there will be a ton of acid to strip out. Don’t panic but you can reduce it to 1/4 ts/sp even daily until you get used to it. I can’t list the benefits here because the benefits are ALL health issues, chronic and acute.

2. Ginger – either fresh, dried or powdered. This is a magical herb/spice. And it comes with a whole host of synergistic friends – turmeric, cinnamon (especially if you have diabetic tendencies), garlic, etc, etc, etc. But let’s start with ginger. My daughter, and later on, myriad sufferers, report the anti inflammatory benefits of this one little additive. We take it in any way you can think of – in soda water, warm water with lemon juice, in fact in just about all our foods and dressings. As one of the most miraculous spices on the planet, a whole wing of a research hospital in Venezuela is dedicated to the research of ginger – for cancer, IBS, CFS, hormone disruption – and more. For CFS, it calms the stomach, reduces muscular and joint pain, clears the head (brainfog!) and stops the nausea. My daughter believes this was the one outstanding addition to our repertoire of finding a cure that took us almost 3 years….

3.  Diet – this is the most vital overall component – being sick, your urine will be acidic. And sadly, even if the pH is over 7.4, your organs, especially your large intestine and brain, will still be acidic. They function but only just. You must get alkaline. This can be done with all forms of fancy diets and products but the basics are easy.

4. REMOVE sugar, white flour and gluten, dairy, meat, additives, processed foods, table salt and obviously unhealthy fast foods. I can hear many of you saying ‘Well, that means I can’t eat anything.’ Sadly, these few foods make up most of the SAD. Meaning, thousands of beneficial foods have been replaced with the modern diet of flour, meat, sugar and dairy. You will NOT miss nutrients – in fact, most of these SAD foods have almost zero nutrient content.

5. REPLACE the foods – so for sugar, well, this one should be avoided at all cost. You may have a little agave, stevia or apple/pear syrup but generally, we just don’t need sugars. For white flour – it’s funny that whole nations (like Australia) have been built on wheat. Wheat has been so adulterated and modified that we can no longer digest it. It’s odd – there are literally hundreds of gluten-free seeds and pseudo grains that can make the same foods we expect from wheat.

This includes buckwheat, millet, spelt (for some), quinoa, chickpea, arrowroot, etc, etc, etc. For salt, it is the single most vital food product on the planet – but NOT table salt which is the other white poison (second to sugar) – replace with Himalayan salt, celtic salt or even sea salt – the electrolytes and micro nutrients in these things make them the foundation of all cell formation. On that note, did you know that the chlorophyll plant cell is identical to the red blood cell? All but the nucleus which is chlorophyll (ours is iron).

So it is impossible to renew blood cells or get energy by having sugar or pasta. The only way to do this is to take GREEN – vegetables, leaves like spinach etc – and if you are unable to eat, get some super greens type tablets or tonic. THIS will give you energy. A short word on meat and dairy – both are highly acidic and the human digestive system simply cannot digest them, no matter how cleverly crafted industry-written ‘nutrition’ books are. They are acid forming and if you are in tune with your body, you will know.

There is more information on the alkaline list on this blog – please print it off and keep it close by – let it govern your shopping, your fridge and pantry. And google free sites on cooking alkaline. You will be pleasantly surprised. My favourite right now are Sunny Raw Kitchen, Russell James and Karen Knowler.

6.  Remove chemical triggers (the most hidden factors) – environmental poisoning is at an all time high – our water, air, food, homes and bodies are full of introduced chemicals and even biological triggers. Moulds, perfumes, additives, paints, solvents, foods, etc, etc – each are linked to extreme toxicity – I do not recommend a regular test for this – but see a practitioner with a Vega tester or similar (biological terrain testing) – they will be able to tell you just what your body has in unwanted stores, what you lack, what you are sensitive to and what you need.

Science is responsible directly and indirectly in making this world very unsafe. Some are invisible but no less dangerous. Please do not underestimate this. I have seen too many instances of ppl going to say a school, shopping centre or moving into a new home or job, and within hours, being unable to function normally. Mould is linked to MS, allergies – to death. So too even with new car interiors, skin care, cleaning products and garden sprays.

The list is endless – no one is going to do this for you because simply put, it means admission of guilt and loss of income. Sad but true. Get informed. For my part I was initially very (medically-induced) skeptical and was probably the hardest to turn around. That’s why I am never surprised by the arguments – I know them, I’ve said them and lived by them.

PLEASE, begin your new life today. Get the treatments recommended – order them today. Begin the other simple steps today – not by picking and choosing as these are the cases that fail. Your illness didn’t appear overnight so will take a massive effort to control and treat. Just know it is treatable.

There are short cuts to becoming alkaline – and the most vital part of your journey is to take the step NOW. What you put onto and into your body is paramount. Alkaline water is just part of the journey –

* CFS/lyme/fibro testimonies Pt 2

26-07-04_1758

More testimonies on the Chrysalis protocol for CFS, lyme, fibro and so on –

* Thankyous and testimonies always make my work worthwhile. Especially in a career which finds most of us out of work or earning lower than the average wage. I keep every one of them but wanted to share the latest, from K in Sydney. It is highly emotional, such is the nature of CFS suffering once you find a cure.

“IF YOU WANT TO TRUST ANYONEONE WITH HEALTH ADVICE TRUST THIS

I studied my a** off daily TO FIND CURES FOR CFS, MY DOCTOR SAid, “YOU DIDNT JUST HAVE CFS. WE SAY THAT U WERE DYING OF SOME UNKNOWN autoimmune disorder.”

I actually became paralyzed with cfs – with a fulltime carer. I had a pan next to my bed and I was so sick I would miss and fall on the floor, and be crying for help as I had no energy to climb back on the bed……

My carer would pick me up and pat my head to sleep…u wanna talk about sick…..I had the worst form of cfs………I was told I was dying.

I had severe asthma.

I had severe multiple chemical allergies, and suffered 7 anaphalaxic attacks to environmental causes.

I have now diminshed this with an alkaline diet.

I had severe amine, msg and salicylate intolerances with one anaphalactic reaction to almonds, with rashes and hives all the time.

RPA ALLERGY CLINIC TOLD ME TO EAT MORE ANIMAL AND MORE ACID – WRONG AGAIN WESTERN MEDICINE……totally wrong.

CURED THIS – INSOMNIA; LEAKY GUT SYNDROME;  my stomach was badly destroyed by sugar, western medicine, and unorganic foods, heavy metal toxcity ; gone – addisons, adrenal burn out; parasite infection d.fragilis; GONE!

NO ONE ELSE COULD EVEN BEGIN TO HELP ME EXCEPT THE CHRYSALIS PROTOCOL. I WOULD HATE TO THINK HOW MUCH MONEY HAS BEEN WASTED………….(Please dont go to another planet Lulu, cause all cfs people would die……thats 20million of us, wiped off the planet, u have our answers.)

People I saw that failed me miserably – I saw BIOCHEMISTS, no help. I saw so many health professionals, no help. I went to into hyper baric oxygen chamber therapy – waste of money.

In regards to cfs I saw two nutritionists – waste of money as they say to eat animal products which are killing you. I saw two **** NATUROPATHS, told me to eat animal products. The reason they failed is because they have no experience in disease.

How can u treat disease unless u have had it or cured it?

The biggest lie? I saw 25 western med trained DOCTORS, THE ******* WASTE OF TIME MEDICAL PROFESSION ON THE PLANET…..dangerous, full of lies, and brutaly destroys ur immune system, also funny that western medicine vaccines and gmo foods are all linked – seems to me they want DISEASE…not wellness.

So then I figured no one could help me,  and I was prepared for death.  A buddhist practitioner prepared me for death……………….BUT THE FUNNY THING THESE PRACTICES ACTUALLY HELPED ME AND I ENEDED UP FEELING BETTER, was karma cleared???

Then I decided to do it myself,  and I was failing because of the diet advice I kept finding all over the internet…………….the anti-candida diets which every idiot said was cfs, this is not true cfs is not candida. I continued eating animal products thinking they would resurrect me……….YET THEY WERE KILLING ME. I GOT MYSELF TO ABOUT 20% BETTER – no more.

I found this protocol and within a year she has totally changed me. I do homeopathy, I speak to a brilliant naturopath weekly (Chrysalis) online, I use the supplements recommended (after taking thousands of dollars’ worth of supplements wrongly), I did see an accupuncturist every fortnight, and an orthomolecular doctor for intravenous IV of vitamin C, and I use the pH Miracle as my diet. If I come off one thing I go down fast. They are all pieces of the puzzle that is my case.

This seems to be the cure – doing EVERYTHING you can do get well.

I will never trust anyone else except Chrysalis, my homœopath that has changed my life – and my doctor whose name I can’t mention as she is scared of AMA repercussions – as western medicine is so corrupt they do not want people well and shut down any doc who practices alternative therapies. THAT is how little our medical groups want us well.

IF U WANNA GET WELL……………YOU GOTTA LEAVE THE LIES OF WESTERN MEDICINE……………

Love to you all and if u wanna get better like I am, LISTEN and change what you are doing.”

New research is being done all the time and rather than play the waiting game and release it in 20 years as in “Trials will need to be proven so we can release it” the answers are here now and millions are benefiting. I don’t even expect it to be mainstream as big pharma is not going to be making billions from it – all the more reason to trust!

* CFS/lyme/fibro testimonies Pt 1

The following are real testimonies from my patients concerning the Chrysalis protocol –

If you are still of the mind that CFS/lyme/fibro is incurable, take a good look.

I watched this beautiful girl go through struggles that thankfully most cannot imagine – including those with invisible disease. Her struggles included physical, emotional and eventually attacks to her most personal life.

Yet she came through it all. She is FREE of all that could be thrown at her. She lost 3 years of her life – she may have been ‘lucky’ that her mum is a naturopath but back then, answers were thin on the ground.

And sadly it was not just an invisible disease that hurt her. I guess this is why I get so angry when sufferers, 9/10 times, will make excuses or choose to dismiss my claims at knowing the truth, that EVERYONE can heal from CFS – you don’t need some fancy, expensive overseas special clinic.

You don’t need some expensive, specialist-prescribed protocol that only results in more suffering that is then dismissed as a necessary evil – as in herxing that doesn’t improve. Primary reactions that continue simply show it is not working.

Shadi spent what life she had, counselling her peers out of their own demons. None of them knew and less cared what she was actually going through. In the end, she walked away because the attacks almost claimed her life – they’d already claimed so much. I still share her story – how can I not?

Her very last dealing with the medical establishment involved a team of health experts declaring that if she refused to take anti depressants, if she refused to admit she was self harming, if she continued to ‘lie’ to them, there was nothing they could do – enjoy what life you have left.

No health care, no welfare, no extended family support, no church or friend support. For me, as the mother, if I found answers, I was going to dedicate my life to sharing those answers. That was actually 4 years ago.

Thankfully, since then, we have had a continuing stream of CFS/lyme/fibro sufferers take advice and all of them are in various stages of once again living pain and sickness free.

Sadly, 9/10 are not – they have chosen to argue and refuse to even consider their case is curable. That is their choice. What’s your choice? As the 80s slogan says – CHOOSE LIFE! Prior to the new site being launched, let me say it IS as easy as 1, 2, 3.

1. Get alkaline – this means as much of getting rid of acidic lifestyle habits as it does introducing/including alkaline and healthy life options.

2. Clean up your life – detox, removing chemicals, build an effective support network.

3. Protocol of organic, cell building and healing supplements – after completing your online assessment to determine and pinpoint what you need for that inflammation, that weakness, cell renewal and LIFE. Then get back to me and tell me how many days it took to turn your health around – to get your LIFE back again.

Yes, I did say DAYS.
