Starting a Wellness Journey is an exciting time. For the first time in perhaps a long time, you begin to feel a flow of energy return to your body that you had forgotten existed. So, starting your journey to “wellness” is a profound time in your life and for that reason, it is a good idea to allow us to help you get there step by step.
Acute versus chronic illness
Strangely enough, if you suffer from a sudden, violent illness (such as the ‘flu or a sudden pain spasm, traumatic injury or infection) you will recover quite quickly if the problem is identified and treated correctly – usually by your doctor.
Chronic – or long-term – illnesses are a different proposition. Because they have a gradual onset and are often not responsive to synthesised pharmaceutical medication or surgery, you often are left to “learn to live with it”. Examples might be:
- preparing for:
- difficult pregnancies,
- just wanting to get healthy, perhaps for a first pregnancy,
- fatigue, unspecified pains in the head, trunk, joints or limbs;
- breathing difficulties,
- skin disorders,
- juvenile health problems and many others (click on above).
The most important feature of our natural approach that we wish to determine the underlying cause of chronic complaints, using our unique diversity of simple but powerful, non-invasive clinic tests and questionnaires. Only then can we effectively treat the condition and move from a state of disease to a state of Wellness.
Our tests (please click on “clinic tests”) comprise the latest technology – tests such as Hemaview Live Blood technique, VLA, Leaky Gut (urinary Indicans) test, blood glucose levels and blood grouping. While this approach may take time, we hasten to add that we have a policy of treating the symptoms immediately. In other words, our pharmacist/naturopath will endeavour to ensure that your current suffering may be alleviated by using both traditional and modern methods, using herbs, non-traditional concentrated plant extracts, homoeopathy, Bach flowers, massage therapy, counselling – and of course, when right for you, pharmaceutical medicine.
What it means to you is that clearing up a long-term illness doesn’t happen quickly and easily, despite the fact that you may feel quite well initially. It takes time to sift through all the variables in a patients history and make-up. However, experience has shown that a shortcut approach that just treats the symptoms without understanding the causes will always fail after some period of time and the symptoms will spring back, just the same as before.
We have listed a number of common complaints or health problems that we see in our practice. If you have a problem, but it is not listed – don’t worry. Our practitioners have wide experience and will be able to help. Below, please note some Wellness Packs that we offer.
Please Email Kirsty for full details at email@example.com. This pack comprises a complete professional range of all the supplements that you might need to build optimum health in order that you may conceive in full confidence of a healthy pregnancy. The pack contains:
Our own compounded multivitamin that is complete in all 78 minerals, as well as all B vitamins, fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E), vitamin C, bioflavonoids, and balanced in all of these to the best of our ability in order to ensure optimum absorption and availability to your deepest organs. Not only that but also we flavour it to your personal request in natural mango or passionfruit and sweetened with a natural, herbal sweetener, stevioside. Amazingly, we can also do it in a capsule if that is your preference.
Why ‘amazingly’? Because it is really hard to get all of that into just one capsule. In fact. it is impossible to deliver the total sum of all the minerals that you need to supplement your diet in one single capsule. That’s why we also make a calcium/magnesium capsule for you – in colloidal mineral form – exactly the same form as the colloidal minerals in your capsule.
But that’s not all. We also add extra B12 and Folate because the nature of your reproductive system demands that you receive an abundance of these in your diet as deficiencies in these have been identified as a leading cause of birth defects.
But you can’t stop there. We also present a special oil blend that the girls on our team have dubbed “Phil’s Oil”. Why extra oil when everybody tells you to avoid fat? Because your cell walls need the special types of oil (omega-3 and also detoxifying elements) in our blend for healthy structure. You wouldn’t believe the number of people who present for Hemaview live blood technique who exhibit deficiencies of these essential oils – not to mention B12 and folate (also known as folic acid). I formulate the oil so that it will not deplete your body of Vitamin E when you take it – a common problem when taking a couple of teaspoonsful of essential oil twice daily.
No naturopath’s list would be complete without a suggestion or two of herbs – and we do just that. There is one final, secret ingredient in our pack that will surprise and delight you when you receive it. With this, you can guarantee that your body will have the optimum chance to grow and heal itself quickly and effortlessly when the job in question is demanded of it.
So, order Phil’s preconception pack today and commence your journey into happy, healthy preparation for motherhood and fatherhood. (Yes, dad’s can use some help to ensure that the quality of their sperm is second to none! And harden up, become flexible and pack plenty of ‘punch’ at that).
