Basic supplementation can often be the best

Darn Good Yarn: Online Yarn Store | Ethical Yarn

It’s true. Before I learned the shortcuts it was normal for me to take 18 different supplements a day. All very safe, all very effective but a huge waste of money. There are a few very vital points to remember when considering supplementation –

  • Today, 9/10 supplements sold on pharmacy and some health shop shelves are synthetic. They are therefore pseudo nutrients. Alien to our bodies and capable of causing detrimental side effects. Choose only natural, plant based and organic where possible. I also advise to not trust any company that uses animal testing processes, or animal products. I do not see any equation between loss and suffering of one life and hoping to gain one’s own health.
  • We ALL need supplementation in some form. In the early 1920s in Australia alone, long before development and subsequent destruction of our environment, it was determined scientifically that 16 trace/micro nutrients were missing from our soil. Food comes from our soil. Even if we farm organically and biodynamically we will be found to lack somewhere, even if that chance is far less than someone who eats a rubbish standard western diet (that your doctor will advise). Our air and water and now exponentially more polluted and any nutrients we take in often are not assimilated due to the damage caused by our environment and modern day stresses. We must therefore then supplement at a cellular level.
  • Medical experts are not educated in diet – unless they sidestep and study this topic that has little to do with modern medicine. In fact, many old school nutritionists are trained only marginally more than doctors as they have learned from industry-penned dietetics books. Meaning the people funding the books – meat, wheat, dairy, sugar type boards. Hence the reason even the worst of ‘foods’ are classed as part of a vital balanced diet.
  • Inflammatory processes caused by medication, heredity, stress, environmental factors and so on prevent nutrient uptake. If your supplements cause your urine to become bright yellow (unless high in curcumin or other yellow-based supplements) you can bet they are either synthetic or your body is not adequately balanced to utilise these nutrients.

  • Animal proteins and other animal supplements are foreign to our bodies – much like a blood transfusion, our bodies are unable to recognise or assimilate this type of supplement. Nutrients must be at their smallest molecular structure. As such, it is possible for them to be dangerous if in the wrong form or source. Eating animal protein does not provide protein per sé – however a diet high in plant aminos – in a broad blend, will allow your body to recombine in order to build the various long chain proteins required by the various systems of your body. Likewise, even fish-based supplements are no more effective to your body than dog-based supplements. Side effects often outweigh benefits.
  • Supplements that are based on one or very few ingredients serve to cause further imbalance, throwing the entire body and all systems out. The medical habit of supplementing with calcium or iron or folic acid – or any other single source type suggestion (also adopted by many natural health professionals as alternative health becomes more medicalised) has arguably caused as much damage as other medical iatrogenic forms in the western world.

A good supplementation program will include the widest selection in the smallest number of sources. Something capable of building from a cellular level will affect every system of the body. Something capable of offering an alkaline/anti inflammatory protocol of detoxification, chelation, blood cleansing, cell building, tissue healing, immune building and both hormone and enzyme balancing/building is far more effective than ad hoc supplementation.

I have always seen the construction of any treatment plan to begin at a cellular level and to include every single aspect possible rather than trying one idea at a time. This offers no balance and serves only to drag out the healing process unnecessarily. So, how should basic supplementation be structured? Bear in mind this is a basic protocol – however it will positively affect the health of anyone, even if suffering more in depth health issues, notwithstanding unknown allergies or sensitivities.

Chelation – the benefits of chelation are too extensive to list in this one article, however they include (sources WebMD, Dr Joel Wallach – American Longevity, Ray Sahelian)  –

  • Mineral deficiencies.
  • Low energy.
  • Diabetes.
  • Arthritis.
  • Reducing blood cell clumping.
  • Reversing early cataracts.
  • Delaying greying of hair.
  • Flushing poisonous heavy metals from the body.
  • Improving general well-being.
  • Reducing aches and pains.
  • Blood cleansing.
  • Increases absorptive action of food nutrients.

Wholistic Plant Based Superfood Tonic – if your supplement is simply labelled as Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, B2 and so on, you can almost be certain that it is synthetic. Good supplementation is all about the source and how synergistic it is with all other ingredients. Most supplements have all RDA necessary ingredients thrown in, no better than eating a standard western diet. Whether liquid, powder or tablet/capsule in structure the ingredients must be able to compliment each other, work together and be small enough in molecular structure for your cells to not only recognise the nutrients but be able to utilise them in their entirety. They should include a range of superfoods, antioxidants, herbs, enzymes, probiotics, immunity builders, organ healing herbs, adaptogenics and digestive tonics to encourage full absorption. Again, the benefits are too extensive to list here but will positively affect the health of any person consuming them. They will not only fill the gaps in a modern diet but address every aspect of physical, hormonal and psychological health.

While this is a very basic form of supplementation, it is also very extensive. There are many aspects of health so please don’t take this to mean you have to do nothing else. Pure, organic ALKALINE foods, non toxic personal care and cleaning products, filtered water, essential fats/oils, superfoods, smoothies, fresh juices and more dedicated supplement recommendations are advised for particular health needs and issues.

Make no mistake – if you continue to self abuse and ignore warning signs, nothing will help. No magic pill or vaccine or surgical procedure.

However, this is arguably the best start you can get!

Cellulite – vanity or dangerous health issue warning?

Cellulite – is it a vanity thing or a health issue? It may be news to some that my natural therapy training took me to PhD studies quite a few years back now. Hardly surprising – considing I had to finish about 10 years of studies just to be considered even remotely close to a GP. Not that having ‘Doctor’ in front of my name would make me any more smart or worthy, but it’s the way society sees us – and sadly, some will only trust a naturopath if we have those two little letters in front of our name (or in my case, the 3 letters after my name). So, what was the subject of my thesis?

cellulite

My research led me to the conclusion that cellulite, like ALL health symptoms, is not a stand-alone issue. In fact, even though it is predominantly a female issue, men can and do suffer from it (but just called fat) and yes, it is attached to a L-O-N-G chain of chronic and even terminal health issues and afflictions. It’s a sad thing that so many women I see have been told it’s just part of being a woman…

That’s not to say you rush off and panic about some hidden sickness. Basically, my research led me to realise that the lymphatic system is possibly the most overlooked and undervalued system of the body. Think about it – like a sewer, the lymphatic system is invisible. It is responsible for taking the waste away that your blood cannot flush into the intestines for excretion. Over time, the lines become gluggy and built up. Yes, we all know about swollen glands, but what about totally bunged up lymphatic pathways?

cell3

We should all be able to gently rub our skin with our fingertips without tiny nodules being palpable. Yet today, almost 100% of the patients I see, if I run my fingers over their skin, all display rugged little bumps and irregularities. Run your finger over a child’s skin and even if they are chubby, they will have incredibly smooth skin. Yet within 20 years it feels like a microscopic off-road track. It came as no surprise that almost 100% of case subjects had symptoms of chronic illness and obesity, even though very thin, young and seemingly healthy girls could also have the dimply demons.

Cellulite, as ugly as it is, is still ignored by the health profession – very frustrating from an iridology angle – a blocked lymphatic system is VERY visible… And considering it’s linked to lymphatic cancer, lymphadenitis, and even elephantiasis, I really can’t believe that it’s one of the many diseases that are addressed AFTER the fact – considering it’s so easy to address early on.

14lymphaticringIris-Signs-004Lymphatic-Rosary-150x150

As one GP said to me, “Once you develop such a bad blockage of the lymphatics that you need a wheelchair, we have very good services and aids in place that could help with mobility.” So, for the thousands out there who simply seize up thanks to mismanagement, we would have to just accept an invalid life? Another GP once said to me ‘Just eat less calories’ – oh, so you mean less calories than the mostly salad and rawfood diet I was already eating? Less calories than the regular fasting I was doing? So much misinformation out there!

homepage-3

In the 90s, motivated as much by fear as I was by clinical frustration, I developed a two pronged program – internal drops and external body brushing and lotion which could loosen up what had become untouchable internally, by either the lymphatic or circulatory vessels. No, cellulite will do no more to your health than cause embarrassment, but it is very closely associated, out outward sign of true, chronic sickness – not quite causing it, but just may possibly be seen as a side effect of a wide range of sickness.

For example, why is it linked only to around 40% of obesity patients? Why is it so common in diabetes, but only in the abdomen? Why do those with leg cellulite display more heart disease symptoms than anyone else? Why is it very common in depression cases? Why do generations of unvaccinated and unmedicated families show no signs of lymphatic ill health? Of course, these are all serious issues that need addressing and simply removing cellulite wont get rid of the other symptoms. But for now, let’s look at removing the ugly side of these health issues. So, what do you do about it?

cell1

Around the time I did my thesis, a French company released (an unnamed) miracle treatment for cellulite that, thanks to overpricing, left my patients rushing to my clinic in droves to buy the treatment I had formulated for less than half the price. At the clinic I was practicing in at the time, we had wealthy ladies from Singapore actually fly to Perth just to buy this heavily promoted fad in bulk. What they spent on one trip could fund an entire village for a year – including their health problems – but such was the clever media coverage and advertising.

Meanwhile for my long story short, lots of success, lots of incredible results (including knock-on effects on other associated symptoms) and hand written thanks (yes, in the days before PCs and facebook) – but without financial support and a ton of attack thanks to the TGA and Australian medical association, I was forced to stop selling it. In short, and in the TGA’s own words, ‘If your product does not have the capacity to cause harm, we cannot approve or register it.’

There are treatments – it takes an alkaline diet and a safe transdermal cream to break down the blockages. Treat the entire body – remove toxic build up and fibrous networks of unnecessary gunk. Unfortunately my products are no longer on the market but I have found products that work just as well. So, what steps?

Get your body alkaline – information here – you wont get rid of cellulite without this one step. The diet is found here

It’s not just fat that causes cellulite – in fact one of the very first really bad cases I saw as a teen was with my ærobics instructor – she was as fit as anyone I knew but suffered badly, only in the thigh area – she ate healthy and played sport all day, but was addicted to bread and other processed carbs – a massive portion of cellulite is linked to  both carbohydrate and protein toxicity (ask why bodybuilders and athletes who overdo the protein and carb intake all end up suffering the worst from the visible effects) – your lymphatics become blocked and engorged, trapping other foreign particles that form the glue in your arteries – calcium, parasites, waste…

cell4

Gluten is one of the main causative criminals in cellulite formation – it’s amazing at just what a difference removing gluten from the diet makes. Massage is a great step, as is JET type therapy, so is manual lymphatic drainage. Colonic irrigation will begin a great flush but if you are not up for that, there is a great internal flush link below. At-home coffee enemas shock the liver and in turn, the lymphatics and are a great way to remove unnecessary fats. cupping therapy easily done at home will also bring rapid results. I am currently working with an orgone scientist to develop an exclusive cupping set to have even more harmonising benefits.

Hot lemon drinks in the morning – just fresh lemon juice in hot water, is the best start to a day you can have. Add a heaped teaspoon of coconut oil or eat that separately – it works like soap upon waste and fats in the body. Dry body brushing gently encourages your lymphatics and capillary tone and gets things moving.

cell5

But how do you flush your body? How do you stop it from happening again once you succeed?

Parasite cleanse – CSR-03600

Body brush – CSR-03600

Make sure you cut down on processed carbs – processed foods in general. Get healthy. Make chronic health issues history by making cellulite history. Eradicating this issue is by no means an easy one – but it really is that ‘simple’.

Medicine is yet to admit that ALL of our health issues, in all their complex forms, are intertwined. We need to think less of diagnoses and more of what our bodies are doing, then act accordingly. Do you have a sedentary lifestyle? Then just get moving! Swim, walk, breathe deeply, stretch and stop slouching. Stop wearing tight clothing as this was proven many years ago to be linked to circulatory damage that leads to lympœdema. I have seen women who were previously size 8 and exotic dancers, end up size 26 because, despite good healthy living habits, their circulation was cut by their clothing, over a long period of time.

* 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!

WORK STRESS & MENTAL HEALTH

images-6

One of the latest trends to hit our media outlets, current affairs programs and blatant sales pitch publicity efforts involves stress in the corporate workplace – ie work stress and mental health. This alarming trend of labeling the simplest of issues as a serious mental health threat is often a grab of the corporate dollar while medicalising everything needlessly. The same applications in this article should apply to tertiary students also, as the increase in study and professionalism brings about the same symptoms.

Bullying is everywhere – in the home, at work, school and even socially – or in churches! We need to stamp it out and address it head on. Don’t ever feel intimidated so badly that you fail to seek support. Don’t ever feel ‘not strong enough’ to find answers – if you need a shoulder, or a sounding board, please seek it!

All one has to do is examine the many contributors to stress and associated symptoms.

  • Workplace bullying
  • Diet
  • Lack of sleep
  • Lack of exercise
  • No escape
  • Ignoring illness
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Lack of vitamin D and fresh air
  • Misuse of recreational and scheduled drugs, and alcohol.

    images-7

So, what do we do about each of these things? And what price would you put on your overall health, let alone your mental health? More importantly, what is it costing you in downtime, personal relationships and even finances? If you could find the key to unlock this door – what price would you put on it?

Integrative methods of avoiding work stress and mental health include

  • Exercise & diet
  • Fresh air & sunshine
  • Rest & recuperation
  • Relaxation & bodywork therapies
  • Supplements & other remedies
  • Breathing techniques and correct posture
  • Counselling/mediation sessions
  • Prayer & meditation
  • Personal issues & habits
  • Chemical toxicityatthebeach2

Okay, so you may have tried some of these – how do you know if they are working, and what actually does work? Everywhere you look today, ‘offers’ are screaming out. Where does it end? And how do you work out just what is going to help YOU?

How much did your last professional consultation cost you? How much is your time worth? If you provide a professional service, what would you consider to be a reasonable price?

We are rarely guaranteed anything in life, but clinically proven answers do exist.

With household diets at an appalling all-time low, chemical toxicity attacking us everywhere we turn, and celebrities spruiking sub-standard health advice, it is time to get pro-active. Many homœopathic remedies address emotional fear and upset – without addiction or side effects. How about your supplement choice? Do you really feel something that is synthetic or lacking altogether is of any benefit?

Don’t just let it go. Please take a chance…

You may need support with coping and facing the day but for your inner health please consider the online assessment – do a search on this page. You can also request the additional questionnaire which deals with treatment choice for emotional health.

Why treatment alternatives are always necessary.

So you’re sick. Or a loved one is. What do you do? Did you know there is always a safe option?

Moreover, what if you are told “There is nothing we can do”?
Unknown-8 vsimages-14

As I mention frequently in my posts, there is ALWAYS an alternative treatment option.

One of the most painful aspects of a naturopath’s life is to hear of a patient deciding to take what we would consider a last resort. Especially when it goes wrong and they then come to you to try and fix the mess. This would make up over 50% of my workload and I would guess that most of my colleagues’ patient loads are the same.

Unknown-11 vs Unknown-5

Every patient I see or help, I pray for. Every case I seek the right treatment and it usually is within reach very fast. Now that I am able, courtesy of the internet, to help people I haven’t even met, I g

et excited when I discover how many excellent, effective treatments are available around the world. 20 years ago, I could only treat people face-to-face and it was not only laborious but could often be prolonged.

Today, someone can call or email me from the other side of the world and ask for recommendations for their particular health issue/s. While I am working on getting my own homeopathic rang

e across the globe again, I also am able to recommend which my own chosen health products that people can now order online via my site, from the comfort of their own homes, in many countries. And I am working on those countries that don’t yet approve of such excellent products.  So not only can I ensure the optimum health choice but purest, safest personal and home care –

This thread will include links to products that I approve of – those that I have seen the results of and know they not only are safe, but actually work. Along with this service, I also plan to add more practitioners to my recommendations, as I find those rare beings who have more than proven their skills and knowledge.

Supplements instead of food?

images-24

Don’t laugh. Many do just that. While I don’t recommend it, I can understand it. In 1916 or thereabouts, in Australia alone, soil was determined to be deficient in 16 trace elements. That was long before industry began poisoning our waterways and soils. Considering each of these nutrients are an essential part of our health, and our food comes from this soil, how can we possibly get what we need from food?

Unknown-15

Even organic, vegans who juice and eat superfoods, if from deficient soil, will be lacking vital nutrients. So what nutrients do we need?

The answer is very broad reaching and far too technical to make this post interesting. Suffice to say, from electrolytes to molecular trace elements to macro nutrients to minerals and essential fatty acids, hormones and yet-to-be-discovered vitamins, most of us are simply not getting what we need. So supplementing is a must.

That is not to say we continue to eat junk or even starve ourselves and eat just supplements. While I am a firm proponent of fasting and detoxing, it’s as crazy a notion to starve and eat supplements as it is to eat junk and take supplements – and believe you will be vitally healthy.

images-23

For one, we need to detox. We need to tonify our vital organs. We need to replace what is missing and we need to encourage our bodies to absorb what is needed, while excreting what is not. And therein lies the problem. Most of us will simply excrete what we hope our bodies are absorbing. Why?

Simply put, because we are positively charged ionically, we repel most nutrients – because most supplements are positively charged. Often from birth, we lack vital but tiny parts of a necessary makeup that is needed to recognise and metabolise what every working part needs to thrive. What is considered a healthy diet is so far from the truth it’s crazy. But no health expert is necessarily going to tell you that – especially when there is more money to be made from omitting the truth.

12122559845W67mx

Take probiotics. From birth, depending on the process of each individual birth and subsequent health care, we may already be missing the vital parts of what it takes to be healthy. Mothers and fathers already suffering chronic health issues, self-abusing, DNA damage (inherent) and even medical influence (drug side effects) not only shape the growing baby but affect its start to life. Add a craving-driven very low nutrient diet and the growing baby, despite drawing on the mother’s nutrients, cannot possibly get what is needed for thriving health.

Depending on how the birth unfolds, so too with the health of the baby. If a caesarian birth, a regular process such as the initial ‘dose’ of probiotics via a chemical reaction in the birth canal, is already missing. It may not seem much but it is the difference between immune function and vast networks of bodily functions that depend on probiotic existence to even regulate or carry out involuntary processes. That means colds, stomach bugs, poor immunity at first but can eventuate into serious chronic health issues such as asthma, diabetes and even cancer in the longer term.

images-27images-29

Most children today in the western world at least, already have a growing medical file – thanks to unnecessary ‘must haves’ like a personal paediatrician. In fact it’s rare for a child less than 5 years old not to have one. I am constantly shocked at how many children have had antibiotics already before the age of one. More than 50% of new mothers give up breast feeding before the most beneficial time – most only lasting 3 months at best. To date, there is not one single formula on the market that can even come close to mother’s milk.

As a result of this deficiency, babies are being fed adult food long before they have even established their hormones. Processed baby food, formulas, even vitamised adult meals – no baby can digest this! They may eat it, they may even appear to be growing from doing so – but they will all suffer some damage from this – if not now, definitely in the future.

I know this comment will offend many parents. I make no apologies. The fact is, chronic illness begins early, in the bowel. Regardless of what your doctor or paediatrician tells you, or how much your friends or even older parents tell you that you are doing the right thing, the child will suffer eventually.

Unknown-7

What you put into your child is exactly what will determine the future of their health – there is no other way to sugar coat it. I’ve had irate mothers and even grandmothers ask me how dare I upset them this way – it’s exactly this thing that has resulted in the western world being so dependent upon health care. Children should not have diabetes! They should not have arthritis, or be obese. They should not have asthma, nor should they be dependent upon vaccinations for basic defence. That should be done by food.

images-25

By their teens, most people are showing the signs of basic enzyme and hormone function being out of balance already – acne, mood swings, depression, weight issues, asthma, tiredness and either constipation or frequent upset stomachs. Each of these issues should not even be in existence at this age. And if nutrient intake was sufficient, not one of these issues would be.

I have patients as young as 2 years old already going through puberty. That’s triggered by hormone imbalance. This young lady’s mother ate processed chicken every single day of her pregnancy. It was her craving and her doctor told her it was fine. It’s not fine. I’ve had girls as young as 16 totally infertile. All their body parts are in tact, yet they have the hormone dysfunction of an 80 year old. I’ve had young male patients so old by their mid 20s that they are already heading for disability. And it’s all diet. And not one of these patients take supplements.

Unknown-16

Flip these scenarios over and I’ve had patients in their 80s still working out, still riding bikes and going for a run. Not an ounce of fat on their bodies and not a swollen joint, ache or drug in sight. Most will say these people are just lucky. No they are not. They all take supplements.

But how do you know what to take?

The most unwell person will respond favourably to any old supplement. But that is not what I recommend. Companies like Centrum boast about being the best on the market. They aren’t. Nor at those freely available on pharmacy shelves, nor in most health shops. Yes, they work, but they are all positively ioned and that means you will only absorb a small amount, if any at all. I’ve seen the chromatographic slides comparing every single product on the market. And few stand out – including the most expensive.

As I naturopath, believe me, I have tried them all – both on myself, my family and my patients. And after over 20 years of practice, and over 30 years of personally taking supplements, there are very few that I recommend.

Many years have gone by. In that time I have seen true miracles as a result of Sisel supplements. Cancer, diabetes, hormone disruption, depression, weight issues, infections, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, emotional disorders – these are just a few health issues that i have seen eradicated by the use of the right natural supplements – not the synthetic form you find on pharmacy shelves.

Of course there is far more that can be done, according to each individual, but by synergistically combining the right ingredients with each other, not only can we lessen the need for multiple supplements, but the financial difference is astounding.

Thankfully I have friends and patients who keep me on my toes. When I am so caught up in one aspect of my work, without fail (and thankfully) one of them will ask or remind me of something I have overlooked or long forgotten.

Today my friend Mike, a media/promo guy from Sydney who has been battling CFS for some time, sent me a timely reminder on the humble aloe.

I was first introduced to aloe in my senior school years, when Alan Black brought out his own MLM range of products that blew most of us away. Unfortunately, his company went bust but not before he instilled in Australia at least, the value of the aloe plants that grow so freely around most continents, especially the warm ones.

When I was studying herbal medicine, one of the rules of thumb was that if a plant grows like crazy in any area, it is not only more beneficial but seems to be needed more in that area, for medicinal reasons.

During my nursing days, on one of my frequent trips to the city from Fitzroy Crossing, where I worked as a remote area nurse, I sat next to a lady known locally as Moondancer. The locals sadly thought she was weird – she was a biodynamic gardener and lived in a communal setting just out of town, on Quanbun Downs. Of course anyone who grew food that way automatically was seen as a moon worshipper – such is the warped power of ignorance. Anyway, she told me so much about the plant and how they didn’t have to do a thing – how beneficial it was to their health, the livestock and their composting.

Over the years I used it for everything – skin care, hair care, baby care, sickness and of course composting. But after studying one of the many subjects I sought, I was turned against it – something to do with not being beneficial for my blood type. So along with much of what I have learned over the years, it went into the useless basket, at least until my eldest daughter contracted chronic fatigue syndrome. I don’t know how much it contributed to her rapid recovery (well, rapid compared to most of the other sufferers I have come into contact with) but how odd now that I no longer use it, my own health took a turn for the worst, including an increase in pain and migraines.

So, while I go back to an old friend and check out the benefits once again – for my family and my patients, please take the time to read the following page – this family owned and run herbal company started out the same way mine did – due to the ‘miraculous’ healing of their father, by natural methods, when medicine had failed them.

It’s a brilliant read, and to satisfy all the trolls who seem bent on slandering pages that offer sound advice (money? egos? bored? mummy doesn’t love them?) yes, this one does have links on studies and scientific support.

Hidden miracle herb facts

No home herb garden should be complete without aloe vera. It simply grows itself. In colder climates, keep it in a warm glasshouse or conservatory. In the outback of Western Australia it grows as commonly and prolifically as any wild plant. In South Africa, the malumes without a wrinkle on their beautiful old faces, shared with me the stories of how they used it – not just in muthi (herbal medicine) but as a rub on painful areas. For some reason at the time it didn’t register, and I put it down to something else they must be adding.

But today I was reminded of a story Dad told me years ago. He and his brother as small kids, used to argue the point of how their parents got the ‘swallows’ into what they thought was called Oil of Swallows. In fact, it was oil of aloes and my nanna used to rub granddad’s arthritic joints with it.

As you will see with the above link, aloe gel has many uses. You can buy it in pill or liquid form. You can buy liniment-type rubs and it is part of many cosmetic lines. I’ve heard doctors and beauty therapists calling foul on the ‘bad effects’ of aloe, yet not once did they offer any proof of their claims, even when standing face-to-face with a person glowing with the good effects of aloe…

On the subject of home herb gardens, please take the time to print off this list, which was originally written for critics of my work, in my home town. We had brilliant herb gardens all over town but no one actually used them. What started as quite a hostile discussion, ended with many excited ladies planning to go home and actually use the bounty from their now-useful gardens.

The truth is, you have nothing to lose. No dangers here, no dangerous side effects (apart from a laxative effect which most people seem to need these days thanks to poor diets) but so much to gain. If you find that you have chronic pain, how about reaching for aloe next time rather than that strong analgesia.

So what are some known and effective – and SAFE anti inflammatories and analgesics?

See here for my favourite recommendations. The article focuses on chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia symptoms but as the pain quota in these invisible disorders is extreme and not manageable in medicine it shows just how effective they are.
