Puberty Onset and juvenile illness
Apologia: I use the terms “he” and “she” alternately where indicated to remove discrimination and the use of either term against a particular issue does not signify a greater tendency for either sex to contract a particular illness.
Puberty Onset can weaken your immune system and may make you prone to illness. (i) Why? Because your body grows so fast that this growth process “sucks” all of the available reserves of health-giving nutrients out of your storage depots and reduces your immune system’s effectiveness.(ia) Unless we intervene with a well-balanced natural therapy supplement, “normal” dietary sources do not contain sufficient nutrient to replenish deficient micronutrient reserves. (ii)
Overcoming this weakness.
You can overcome this growth-derived weakness to your body’s immune system (ib) and those effects can be resolved in many cases – be they blood sugar disorders, glandular fever, crooked spine, reactive joint pain, depression, chronic tiredness disorder, constant tonsil infection, heart conditions, sinus discomfort, swollen thyroid gland, acute menstruation pains, lack of menstruation, mood swings, mental & personality health,Acne,Acne, and any other illness that mysteriously appears around the time of the puberty growth spurt.
For a start, let us make a few simple observations. Firstly, poor nutritional input from food sources and the water supply mean that every one of us exposed to such conditions is constantly on the verge of deficient mineral and vitamin reserves. These can and will impact on bodily systems that depend on them. So, if you go through any stage of growth as a child, much less a sudden growth spurt, such as happens at puberty, then various systems in your body will “donate” their reserves in favour of normal healthy growth of the long bones, muscle and organs including the rapidly-developing sex organs. That means to you that you may experience temporary system failure. One of the most fallible systems is your immune system. So, if it suffers, then you may become susceptible to illness, including glandular fever (Mononucleosis or Epstein Barr virus).
Restore mineral balance. We suggest that the most efficient way to do this is with our Wade’s Mineral Capsules. These capsules have been formulated to provide all 72 of the minerals or trace elements that your body needs – not just a few that are seen in popular “multivitamins”. And they are made in our own lab. Our mineral capsules give you your daily calcium needs also as well as the dozens of trace elements that drive your body’s myriad of chemical “systems” within your cells that are critical to health. Importantly, they are balanced in the proportion that the body needs them. They cost $59 for a month’s supply.
Treat leaky gut. A simple test determines whether or not you have this condition. If you do, it is well worth finding out and treating it with Wade’s Healthy Gut Mix. This Gut Mix is also made in our lab. and is a special “recipe” of ingredients that is designed to treat and restore your gut to normal. This enables normal digestion and assimilation of vital nutrients from your diet. Incidentally, pathology labs charge over $100 for this test. Our price? $26.00.
Eliminate possible food allergy. Food allergy can be a major cause of leaky gut and you may be prone to this issue when your immune system is at a low ebb. A simple in-house test will help us to determine the probable range of foods that you can tolerate and thrive on and also those that are not good for you. The test costs $12
Test for low zinc reserves. Zinc can be deficient in your diet and your body needs lots of it at this time. If it needs replenishing, then it must be accompanied with five select nutrients that work along with zinc in your body. Supplementing with zinc on its own may be dangerous. That’s why we manufacture our own Zinac capsules in the lab. The test costs $10. The capsules cost $39 for one month’s supply.
Assess for vitamin deficiency. One of the causes of what I laughingly call “teenage schizophrenia” is deficiency of certain of the B group vitamins. We can go a long way to determining if your child or you are suffering from a dietary deficiency of these by filling in our “Nutrition Assessment” questionnaire. You can obtain one of these by contacting our office. If you believe that supplementing with vitamins is for you, we make a pleasant-to-take vitamin powder that is fizzy when you dissolve it in water. The fizzy stuff is all natural. It is popular with children and adults and – you guessed it – is balanced. I have resorted to making this myself because it is vital to ensure that B group vitamins are combined in the correct proportion that the body requires to absorb them evenly. If you include too much of any one, it can crowd out the absorption sites in the gut and prevent absorption of onr or more of the others. This may result in an induced deficiency and cause deficiency illness – as well as toxic symptoms of overdose of the offending one included to excess. Our vitamin powder includes traces of all of the minerals as well as the natural bioflavonoids found in plants that always accompany vitamins in nature and costs $49 for one month’s supply.
Children and supplements. Just to ease your mind and put you in the picture, it is known that children over the age of 2 Years Old require 80% of the intake of vitamins and minerals of a grown adult. So, they can have some of the Vitamin Powder as well, quite safely because – you guessed it again – it is balanced for optimum absorption and assimilation of the nutrients contained within.
