Have you spent your life suffering?

Whether it’s with a persistent headache, sinusitis or something more severe such as migraines, asthma, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, ADHD or hundreds of other ailments which are holding you back! You’ll be glad to know there’s a tried and tested way to change your life.

Using a hair sample, Bio-Compatibility testing identifies the influence either positive or negative that each of a wide range of foods and products has on the individuals body. This particular test is called the Hair 500 test and it tests 500 Local and common Vegetables, fruits, Meats, seeds, oils, seafoods, Nuts, Alcohols, Beverages, Biscuits, sauces, Dairy products, Flour and grain products, Cereals, Breads, Gluten Free products, Deodorants, sunscreens, Bathroom chemicals, Cleaning products, toothpastes, common supplements and Health shop items .By using the Bio-Compatability Hair test we are able to determine which foods and products should be avoided and which can be used. The focus is on what you CAN eat and use rather than what you can’t. It includes common local brands found in supermarkets and health food stores. Each item is tested in the form it is usually consumed (both raw and/or cooked where applicable). The technique is based on the way in which the foods and products which we use has either a positive or negative influence the body. Each person is unique so it obviously follows that when it comes to foods and household products that “one size does not fit all”. Each individual has his or her own nutritional and energy requirements. Have you noticed that some foods give you good energy while others seem to drag you down and seem to aggravate existing symptoms?

Digestion & Absoption

dreamstime_s_64855494
Did you know that 80% of your immunity cells are in your Gut?
Yes that's right, So if your digestive system isn't working well, is inflamed or you're suffering from Candida, leaky gut, IBS, Constipation or intestinal inflammatory bowel disorders then there's a high risk that you'll be more likely to get sick, suffer from allergies, food intolerance, and skin disorders.
It all starts in the Gut. Maintaining a healthy digestive system is key to overall health and vitality. We have about 100 trillion bacteria which is about 1.5 kilograms living in our intestinal tract. These bacteria help stimulate digestion of food and absorption of nutrients.
The right bacteria is necessary for proper nutrition and absorption. Digestive bacteria and enzymes break down foods into small molecules in the small intestines. These smaller molecules then enter the blood stream and go to where they are needed in the body.
As mentioned earlier, many conditions can affect this absorption of vitamins and minerals. The main culprits are:  Candida Overgrowth
  Leaky Gut Syndrome
  Parasitic overgrowth or worms
  Irritable bowel syndrome
  Inflammatory bowel disease
  Constipation or Diarrhoea

The Dangers of Conventional Sunscreen

The Dangers of Conventional Sunscreen

 

Our bodies thrive with Sunshine and fresh air and in Australia in particular we embrace being a sunburnt country. It is actually very healthy for us to spend time in the sun every day.  Just as plants need Sunshine to grow and thrive, so do we! A safe amount of time is between 15-20 minutes a day in the sunshine. Our bodies have an inbuilt Sun protection factor in the form of the Pituitary gland. When we step out  in the sun, the Pituitary gland signals the body to produce a hormone which protects us from getting burnt. The problem is though that we tend to wear dark sunglasses so our body is tricked into a false sense of being indoors when we are actually outside. As a result the pituitary gland doesn't receive the trigger to produce the hormone and consequently we end up getting burnt. The other reason is that we stay out in the sun a lot longer then what we should.

Inflammation

Inflammation

Inflammation is the body's attempt at self-protection, the aim being to remove harmful stimuli, including damaged cells, irritants, or pathogens - and begin the healing process in the body.

When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it, the signs and symptoms of inflammation such as heat, swelling and pain specifically acute inflammation, show that the body is trying to heal itself.

Inflammation is part of the body's immune response. Initially, it is beneficial when, for example, your knee sustains a blow and the tissues need care and protection. However, sometimes inflammation can cause further inflammation which can become self-perpetuating. More inflammation is created in response to the existing inflammation.
