Journey to Good Health

Before getting well it is necessary to understand how the human body gets ill. Through my years of study and practice in complementary therapies, I have come to a fairly simple view of health and disease. I present it in its simplicity for you here.

Disease is caused by two things: 'toxicity' and/or deficiency
 

Toxicity

What do I mean by this?

'Toxins' are many and various, and trouble is usually caused not just by one toxin, but by an aggregate of toxins built up over the years coupled with deficiencies.

Broad categories of toxins include:
  • Bacteria/Virus/Parasites/Fungi
  • Chemical (External) e.g. insecticides, household cleaners, cosmetics, deodorants, soap,toothpaste, food additives, drugs, vaccines, chemicals in water, air pollutants etc
  • Chemical (Internal) - made by the body - e.g. excess adrenalin, hormones, dead cells etc
  • Hereditary/genetic
  • Emotional stress, worry, anxiety, grief, anger, insult, etc
  • Perverse Energy electro-magnetic, electricity, geopathic, radiation (from mobile phones, aeroplanes, power lines and cables, x-rays, computers, TV etc)

Deficiency 

This relates to an absence, or an insufficiency, of necessary beneficial influence, such as
  • Nutrients
  • Exercise
  • Sunlight
  • Water
  • Rest
  • Love

There are many components of the Journey to Good Health

  • Good diet and nutrition
  • Cutting down on, or finding ways to 'manage' toxins
  • Adequate water intake
  • Adequate exercise
  • Possible change in other aspects of lifestyle to rectify 'deficiency' e.g. meditation, looking at relationships, working hours, living environment
  • The right treatment/treatments for you
In my work with you I will advise on these things myself or where appropriate refer you on to a practitioner who has specialist expertise in a particular area.

My work complements the work of your doctor. It does not replace seeing a doctor. I do not diagnose particular conditions or diseases, and will frequently recommend that you consult your doctor to have tests or to discuss other options for treatment.

Please remember the 'journey to good health' in the sense in which I use that term is usually a process. It is not about taking or doing just one thing. It involves a certain amount of commitment on your part and it is rarely easy.
