Do you have trouble getting to sleep at night?

Posted on: May 15th, 2014

It is vitally important that we all get enough sleep at night. If we don't we are more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression, our skin will age faster, concentration will be impaired and we are more prone to put on weight.  And these are just some of the problems that can affect us. There are many factors that should be considered to help you get a restful night's sleep such as:. - Eliminate stimulants such as coffee, tea, chocolate and alcohol and some over-the-counter medications if these are your triggers.  (Although some people who suffer from ADHD find a stimulant can be...

BE Lite for Cellulite – toxins & fluid

Posted on: April 11th, 2014

BE Lite for Cellulite is detoxifying and diuretic in its actions.  It encourages the body to speed up its process of elimination which is important for health.  Each day we ingest/inhale toxins & chemicals from various sources - food preservatives and chemicals, polluted air, water etc.  Our body from the time we are born tries to maintain homeostasis or balance.  If our ingestion of toxins and chemicals is greater than can be excreted each day our body stores these in the fatty tissues of the body and surrounds it with water to protect it from being excreted too quickly and...

Applying certain essential oils to the ear canal appears to be an effective treatment for ear infections, findings from a study suggest.

Posted on: March 11th, 2014

Topical therapy for ear infections is usually not recommended because most drugs are in a liquid form that cannot penetrate the eardrum to reach the infected middle ear. This can also be true of fungal infections that narrow the ear canal due to debris.  However, studies have shown the vapours from essential oils may be able to diffuse through the eardrum and destroy the microbes present and as some essential oils are also anti-fungal then a combination blend seems to offer the best result. Source Journal of Infectious Diseases, June 1 2005 Dear Cheryl, I have suffered from a...

Certified Organic Essential Oils aren’t always different from Non-Certified

Posted on: August 26th, 2013

The definition of Certified Organic Oils are those cultivated,grown and processed using procedures that are approvedby the certifying body whose symbol appears on the label,and for this you pay a premium price. However, there are 8 certifying standards in Australia alone,with many more throughout the world. As all of these differthere is no guarantee that one certified product will matchthat from another country. Most (if not all) essential oils do not require fertilisers orpesticides, as the herbs are native plants that can grow wildif not grown in “plantations” and the essential oil...

Did you know?

Posted on: August 26th, 2013

Antiperspirants work by clogging, closing, or blocking the pores that release sweat under your arms -- with the active ingredient mainly being aluminum. This may stop your underarm sweat but it also blocks one of your body’s routes for detoxification and it also raises concern about where these heavy metals and chemicals are going once you roll them (or spray them) on. A review of the common sources of aluminum exposure for humans found that antiperspirant use can significantly increase the amount of aluminum absorbed by your body. According to the review, after a single underarm...

What is Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging?

Posted on: June 28th, 2013

From the paper “The Physiological Basis for Clinical Thermography and the Detection of Infrared Radiation from the Human Body.” By Peter Leando (Ref 11) I quote; “The emissivity of human skin is almost 100% (close to black body emissivity) so the human subject is an ideal subject for thermographic imaging. All thermographic images (thermograms) of the human body depend on the sympathetic control of skin blood-flow.  Only the dermal blood flow changes explain the heat seen on the surface of the body. The heat of a muscle, a joint or a bone is not conducted to the dermal tissues and...

What we eat is really our chemotherapy

Posted on: June 21st, 2013

What we eat is really our chemotherapy three times a day. William Li presents a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases: anti-angiogenesis, preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumour. The crucial first (and best) step: Eating cancer-fighting foods that cut off the supply lines and beat cancer at its own game. Some of the foods he recommended are: green tea, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, oranges, grapefruit, lemons, apples, pineapple, cherries, red grapes, red wine, bok choy, kale, soy beans, ginseng, maitake mushroom, licorice...

Current ‘Pharmaceuticals’ for Pain Relief

Posted on: June 14th, 2013

What are the current “pharmaceutical” products/systems for pain management? Pain management (also called pain medicine) is the discipline concerned with the relief of pain. Acute pain, such as occurs with trauma, often has a reversible cause and may require only transient measures and correction of the underlying problem. In contrast, Chronic pain often results from conditions that are difficult to diagnose and treat, and that may take a long time to reverse. Some examples include cancer, neuropathy and referred pain. Often, pain pathways are set up that continue to transmit the...
