Treating Fibromyalgia Naturally

Fibromyalgia is a chronic illness characterised by a combination of chronic, widespread musculoskeletal pain and tenderness, accompanied by varying degrees of other symptoms, including fatigue, sleep disturbance, musculoskeletal pain and stiffness, cognitive dysfunction and high levels of distress.

Feeling tired? You may have chronic fatigue.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is classified as fatigue that has been reoccurring for 6 months or greater that is not associated with a known disease process. It occurs with symptoms such as brain fog, impaired memory, joint pain, digestive problems, altered immune function, headaches, and swollen lymph nodes.

Fertility and Anti Mullerian Hormones (AMH)

Recently the test to assess ovarian reserve has become more sophisticated, using the Anti Mullerian Hormone blood test. Most medical practitioners still use the three day Follicular-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) test, determining levels on day three of the cycle; this is an inexact test as FSH levels fluctuate in the blood over the course of a day, this is only a measure of FSH at the time you are drawing blood, so it would only be accurate if you had several blood tests of the course of the day to get an average reading.
Energy. We rely on it to get through every day of our lives, yet how many of us stop and think about where it comes from, and more importantly, what stops us getting our maximum from the energy our body makes? It’s a complex subject, but I am going talk about one major influence on how well you feel and how much energy you have to enjoy your life – cellular toxicity.

Do you suffer with annoying bloating? Leaky Gut could be the cause.

Leaky Gut is a term coined by natural therapists decades ago but it actually refers to the condition of elevated gut permeability. Within our digestive tract are cells that line the small intestine, the area of our gut where we absorb nutrients from our food. These cells are joined together to form a barrier with “gates” in between each cell.

Sometimes even healthy food may not be healthy for you.

    Are the foods you’re eating making you unwell? Even the healthy ones? You may have a food allergy or intolerance. Dealing with digestive complaints encompasses a multifactorial approach. But sometimes the cause is not always obvious and further investigation is needed to uncover where the deviation from health is occurring.

Pyroluria

Every person is a unique representation of the human species. Nowhere is this more evident than when we look at DNA.  A defect in this storybook of life can alter a lot of processes in our body; one good example of this is Pyroluria.
Australian research on fertility, carried out by Dr. Anne Clark, (2006) the Chair of the “Preservation of Fertility”,  gives us an insight into issues surrounding fertility today. The research covered 2,400 Australians age 18+ across all states, the results were as follows:

The Mysterious World of Energy Explained

People come to our clinic with various common complaints, including unexplained tiredness, digestive complaints and bloating, muscular and joint pain, low mood and frequent headaches. All of these symptoms can be directly linked to problems with how we make energy inside the cell, known as mitochondrial dysfunction.
