Why you shouldn’t suppress a Cold, and how to Cope Better

A common cold, with all the attendant sniffles, drips and wheezes, is your body’s way to help you to detox if you’ve been under stress and your immune system is a bit under the weather. So if you’re trying to suppress it, you’re only postponing the inevitable and possibly causing your body to overreact later when it simply can’t handle the toxin overload anymore.

Disease Names are Labels – are you Falling for It?

After working on a client the other day that was diagnosed recently with fibromyalgia, I just realised again after listening to her describe her experience of it, that it is so easy to allow the name of a disease to dis-empower you because now you think that you are controlled by it, you ‘HAVE it’!

NO.YOU.DON’T!!!

Anything that is wrong or out of balance in your life or body has a reason, something that caused it, and once you have determined the reason…it can be changed and brought back into balance again. More

How to keep your Gut Healthy to Prevent Sinus & Hay fever

Spring Time Pollen from FlowersYour digestive system does so much more than just digest and eliminate food! It is also the base of your immune system, so if it does not function optimally, your system can be open to attacks by viruses, bacteria and parasites. It also means that, if imbalanced, it will not digest properly, your body will not receive the correct building blocks to function and heal properly and so it will cause a myriad of problems including high blood pressure, diabetes and cholesterol.

But, more importantly for our purpose regarding sinus and hayfever, it will also not eliminate properly, placing your kidneys and liver under strain to deal with an excess of toxins, and this is the reason why your body now has to use other mechanisms to try and get rid of these toxins, especially in spring and early summer when there is an abundance of pollen in the air, that adds to the load the body already has to deal with. There are various ways your body can eliminate toxins, besides the digestive tract. The mucous membranes are one of them and this is why most people suffer from sinus and hay fever during this time of the year, because their liver and kidneys are already under pressure.

One of the simplest ways to get rid of an excess of toxins is to use the skin, the biggest elimination organ, just by regularly soaking in a warm detox bath, at least twice a week. You can use sea salt, rock salt, Epsom salt or mustard bath salts and soak for 20 minutes, sipping water or herbal teas to replace fluids lost by sweating out the toxins.

The best thing, though, is to improve the function of the digestive tract. A programme to replace the gut flora with a good multibillion strain probiotic, regenerating the gut lining with L-Glutamine and restoring the alkaline balance with the mineral biochemic tissue salt NatPhos will do wonders in this regard. Add to this a liver detox with milk thistle and dandelion and you will soon be back to optimum functioning…and no more allergy reactions and blocked sinuses!

How the Overload of Toxins in your Body can make you Sick

If your body is overburdened with lots of toxins, both those generated by its normal processes and those entering your system via your food, air or other means, and you are not drinking enough clear water or exercising, your elimination organs will reach a point where they cannot handle the overload. Our bodies normally generate carbon dioxide, old dead cells, fiber, urea, etc. and the organs that process and eliminate these and other toxic substances include the Lungs, Air Passages and Mucous Membranes, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder, Colon and Skin.

How an Acid Imbalance can cause Serious Health Problems

Causes of Illness & Disease Part 3

Acidosis, or the over-acidity in the body tissues, is one of the basic causes of diseases, especially arthritic and rheumatic diseases. Acidosis destroys bones, because the body has to steal alkalizing minerals from them to keep the blood pH from dropping into the acid range. If the acid alkaline balance is upset, cell metabolism suffers, leading to conditions such as fatigue.

The balance of acid and alkaline in our body is therefore essential to good health. More

Causes of Illness & Disease Part 2

I’m pretty sure that at some stage in your life you have heard someone tell you to stand up straight, right? And you probably thought, nag, nag, nag! Or you tried to, but couldn’t get it right because you felt more comfortable slouching, ‘cause it hurt to stand up straight, or it was simply too much trouble (I know I did!!)? More

How Body Imbalances can cause Illness and Disease

Causes of Illness & Disease Part 1

I’m a firm believer that there is always a reason for everything and if you can find the cause, you can fix it. This is especially true in the human body. If you understand the reason for an imbalance, pain, illness or disease, it can be fixed…it’s really that simple! There is nothing in your body that cannot be fixed, it has the most amazing regenerative abilities. All it needs is the right alignment and the right nutrients, and it will then restore its own imbalances!

There are some basic things that your body needs More
