Identifying your Obstacles to Health
Naturopahs understand that the body is a self-organising, self-modifying, self-healing, intelligent and capable organism that is always seeking to move itself toward a state of balance.
Health is the body’s main priority at all times. When things go ‘wrong’ with health, there is always, always, a reason. Something is obstructing the body’s ability to heal itself. It needs to be our #1 priority to find what it is, consider it, make a choice, make a change, and support the body to restore homeostasis and calm.
Symptoms and Emotions are not our enemies. They bring us information about ourselves, and what we need. Unfortunately we have learnt that symptoms are a sign of the body’s incompetence. Yet symptoms are evidence that the body actively endeavoring to protect, recover, restore and heal. When we can tune in and listen deeply to our heart, we will know what our body’s wisdom needs from us.
‘Obstacles to Health’ can include:
nutritional imbalances, food sensitivities, allergies,
unresolved trauma or emotional issues
chronic infections, pathogens, parasites microbiome disturbance
hormone imbalances, chronic stress,
genetic and epigenetic factors;
Electromagnetic radiation overexposure
living out of alignment with your values and beliefs
insufficient clean water, quality air, and quality nutrition
inflammation, injury, trauma
Identifying your key issues means you can begin to take more control of your choices and actions. Naturopathy can help you work through the process with more clarity, so you don't get lost along the way.
Stress - Stress has a far reaching physiological effect. It switches the nervous system over from ‘rest-digest-restore’ to ‘fight-flight-flee-freeze-hide’. The longer we stay in stress-mode, the less nourishing and healing our body can do. Identifying your primary sources of stress is the first step, because the way we think about these things, the story we tell ourselves, and the pictures we make in our heads, determines the response our body will have. Sometimes identify how we wind ourselves up through our underlying beliefs can help a great deal.
Energy - is the product of the overflow of health. It is the first thing to go offline, and the last thing to come back. The quality of your energy determines the quality of your life. The right diet, nutrients, environment, clearance of blocked emotions, toxins, along with restoration of the energy field, is the recipe for resilient energy and a delicious sense of wellbeing.
Sleep - There is much to disturb our ability to move into a deep sleep state these days. With so much t worry about each day, electricals are everywhere, emitting fields that interfere with our body’s own electrical function. Chronic stress, hormones, restlessness, frustrations, busy-mind, ruminating, and being tormented by all the things to be done … it’s no wonder sleep can be difficult. Medications, the wrong foods, eating late, stimulants, alcohol, weight gain, snoring, sleep apnoea, pain, inflammation, and discomfort … there is always a reason for sleep troubles.
Mood - Our emotional barometer - We carry our history in our body. How we feel on a daily basis brings insight into what is going on for us inside. Listening to our emotions, tuning in to the messages of the body, bring important insights to your healing process. Anxiety, depression, sadness, grief, fear, chlostrophobia, it is there for a reason. The body is on your side, seeking only ever to protect and keep you safe.
Immunity - when the body's resources get low immunity results. Stress depletes the body's ability to maintain and defend itself, and this makes you more vulnerable to lurgies and allergies. Boosting immunity with essential nutrients and herbs while releasing the stress pressure valve, help keep you well and sparkly.
Tummy trouble - stress switches off digestive function, as all available resources move to the muscles and defence systems. Low zinc and B vitamins also means low or no stomach acid production, which opens the way for gut bugs like helicobacter to thrive (stomach ulcer makers), and depletes absorption of essential nutrients like protein, minerals and essential fats.
Toxins - as stress moves the body's resources to defence and flight, daily production of acids and metabolic wastes accumulate, filling the lymphatic system and messing with the body's energy production factories, the mitochondria.
Electro-pollution - Before anything though, when engaging in any health program, start by unplugging ALL electrical in the bedroom at night; turn off the WIFI, move phones and digital clocks out of the bedroom, avoid screens (tv, phone, ipad, computer) at least an hour before bed, and make sure the places you sleep and spend time is away from your home’s electrical box (’smart meter’).
Endocrine Disruptors - Many every day things can have a negative effect on our body's hormone balance. Knowing what they are and how to avoid them can help to stabilise and balance the hormone cycle, thyroid, metabolism, body weight and mood.
As you can see, stress drives a great deal of dysfunction in the body, which interferes with our ability to shine, perform, achieve, think, heal and repair. Your body knows what you need to do, tuning in to these insights is how we can help get you sleeping again.
Diet and lifestyle are of utmost importance if we are to reach our goals of optimal health and longevity. In industrialised cultures our lifestyles have become consumer driven. Collectively we are chronically overfed and yet under nourished. Foods may have low levels of nutrients such as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. We commonly consume foods that are highly processed and overcooked or of poor quality and little nutritional value. Our bodies are further taxed by environmental pollution and stressful lifestyles.
Today we are challenged with increased incidences of cancer, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes, inflammatory diseases, immune disorders, stress related illnesses and depression.
Human physiology, biochemistry, pathology and anatomy are intricately interwoven and rely on nutritional factors for optimal function. Naturopaths know that that the body can heal itself (vis medicatrix naturae) if given the correct building blocks, and the obstacles to this natural process identified and removed. Sometimes it is the simple things that make the most impact.
Herbal medicines are plant-based medicines made from differing combinations of plant parts e.g. leaves, flowers or roots. Each part can have different medicinal uses and the many types of chemical constituents require different extraction methods. Both fresh and dried plant matter are used, depending on the herb.
Herbal medicine is validated by modern scientific investigations, which seek to understand the active chemistry of the plant. Many modern pharmaceuticals have been modeled on, or derived from chemicals found in plants. An example is the heart medication digoxin derived from foxglove (Digitalis purpurea).
Using plants as medicine provides significant advantages for treating many conditions. The therapeutic activity of a plant is due to its complex chemical nature with different parts of the plant providing certain therapeutic effects.
Health Guidance & Wellness Coaching
Health is more than the physical body, it incorporates all other aspects of being, the quality of your energy, the clarity of your mind, the state of your emotions and how you feel each day. Are you feeling motivated or gloomy; energised or lethargic; happy or just not quite right? How you feel on a moment by moment, day to day basis, determines the quality of your life. Modern living often takes more than it gives. We can be so busy trying to make ends meet, whether it be time, activities, deadlines, finances, family, relationships - that we miss out on the quality of appreciating what we do and who we are. Each day can call for resources that we don't readily have, or we would not have an ongoing issue in the first place.
Health and wellbeing is about helping you give to your self what is being called for from deep inside. Your body is the barometer of your life. If you were to listen, really listen, what would the message be?
Health guidance sessions help you to bring together the physical, emotional, mental and physical aspects of your being, to gain clarity and provide resources for what is needed health, lightness, joy and contentment. Sometimes this means resolving old feelings and experiences from the past, leaving situations in the now that aren't serving your greatest expression, or simply eating better, providing the missing nutrients and taking some time for you each day. Using a range of modalities and skills, we help to connect you to what you most need right now, and into the future.
At your initial appointment, whether face to face or by distance, we will be able to clarify what you are needing, and how to identify and resource you with the tools you need to achieve your goals or resolve an issue. Having a health coach can bring more quality to your life.
Homeopathy has been widely used throughout the world for more than 200 years. Homeopathy is used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions. In Germany, Europe and the United Kingdom it is part of the mainstream medical system and used in hospitals and emergency wards. It is based on the principle of ‘like cures like’, meaning that a substance taken in a minute potentised form, will alleviate symptoms it causes if it were taken in larger quantities.
Each remedy carries a unique resonant signature that is used as an energetically imprinted medicine. Vibrational exchange is the concept that underlies the philosophy of homeopathy. The molecules that are given to you (as well as the molecules produced in your body and the molecules that govern your physiology) work not by binding to a specific anatomic receptor on the wall of a cell, but by emitting an electromagnetic signal, vibrating at a specific frequency (termed resonance frequency) that can be sensed and responded to by the cells of your body. It is a gentle therapy, based on the theory of treating “like with like”. Homeopathy can be safely used alongside most conventional medicines. There is no danger of addiction or toxicity.
These remedies work by gently boosting the natural energy of the body, and are very safe, even for pregnant women, children, and sensitive patients. In the assessment of a patient, a traditional homeopath will take into account a range of physical, emotional and lifestyle factors in order to prescribe medicine(s) that should affect the relevant cells. The Asyra technology that is used at The Centre For Integrated Health helps identify the correct solutions more accurately for greater effectiveness and efficiency.
Digital Homeopathy - Digital homeopathy is all about the frequency of the substance rather than the molecule that emits the frequency. The bio-energetic technology that we have allows us to tailor digital homeopathic resonance remedies to the specific requirements of the individual. Containing tens of thousands of specific frequencies that can be imprinted into a homeopathic carrier solution to make a remedy that complements your program. When you place the drops of the imprinted solution under your tongue, they are absorbed and distributed through your energetic nervous system, to stimulate a therapeutic response.
The body is an energy based organism, so it makes sense to treat the body with energy-based medicine. Reconnective Healing and Bicom Bioresonance Therapy help to support and enhance the body's self-healing processes.
