Do you have a root canal or are you considering it? Read this!

Posted by on Aug 5, 2014 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Do you have a root canal or are you considering it? Read this!

Root canal treatment is treatment for a tooth that has become infected or dead. After scraping out the inside of the tooth the dentist will attempt to disinfect the tooth and the canals to eliminate any source of infection.
 
According to Dr. Meinig, no matter what material or technique is used ALL root-filled teeth harbor bacteria and/or other infective agents. He explains that the bulk of solid appearing teeth, called the dentin, actually consist of tiny tubules. If these tubules were stretched out on the ground they would stretch for three miles. A root-filled tooth lacks blood supply to its inside, so circulating antibiotics don’t faze the bacteria living there because they cannot get at them. The bacteria can migrate out into surrounding tissue where they can “hitch hike” to other locations in the body via the bloodstream. The new location can be any organ or gland or tissue, and the new colony will be the next focus of infection in a body plagued by recurrent or chronic infections, resulting in very poor health.
 
DENTAL TOOTHAs soon as an infected root filled tooth was removed from a woman who suffered from severe arthritis it was implanted beneath the skin of a healthy rabbit. Within 48 hours the rabbit was crippled with arthritis and within 10 days it died.
 
Further, once the tooth was removed the patient’s arthritis improved dramatically. This clearly suggested that the presence of the infected tooth was a causative agent for both that patient’s and the rabbit’s arthritis.
 
Bacteria trapped inside the structure of teeth migrate throughout the body. They may infect any organ, gland or tissue and can damage the heart, kidneys, joints, eyes, brain and endanger pregnant women.
 
NOTE:
The root canal must be removed in a specific way to remove the bacteria. It is not as simple as just ripping out the tooth as done by some dentists.

Do you suffer from reflux? This simple food could be the answer

Posted by on Aug 5, 2014 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Do you suffer from reflux? This simple food could be the answer

A lot of people suffer from reflux after eating a meal. Most people assume that they have too much stomach acid and that is the cause of their problems. So they reach for antacids to relieve their symptoms.

However, what actually happens is that the body does not produce enough stomach acid to digest the food. There is not enough acid to keep the stomach environment sterile, so yeast starts growing, especially when we eat carbohydrates. The food starts to ferment and produces gas, heartburn and reflux. The stomach also cannot digest protein properly, which means minerals and B12 cannot be fully absorbed.

Some people take antacids for years. They all inhibit acid production in the stomach. Over the years the body becomes more and more deficient in nutrients and other diseases emerge. Of course the reflux is still there.

One of the things the body requires to make stomach acid is sodium chloride, yes salt. By salt I mean unrefined salt such as Himalayan Salt or Celtic Sea Salt. These salts include over 80 minerals that our body requires. Refined table salt has been robbed of all of its essential minerals that are crucial to our physiology. In addition, harmful chemicals are added.

Himalayan salt SML2Furthermore, unrefined salt hast the following benefits.
– Regulates blood pressure
– Improves brain function
– Balances blood sugars
– Builds immunity
– Provides electrolyte balance
– Prevents muscle cramps
– Improves sleep

Make sure you drink plenty of water and add a little unrefined salt to it. Add extra salt to your cooking. If you suffer from kidney problems consult your doctor first.

Is the Gluten Free Fad Just a Fad, or an Important Part of a Healthy Gastrointestinal System?

by Kylie Smart

Having a Gluten Free Diet is definitely the ‘in thing’ right now, it is now common to see restaurants and cafés advertising their Gluten Free options, even country bakeries are stocking Gluten Free breads!

But the question is why all of a sudden is Gluten a problem? Our parents grew up eating white bread and they are fine? Right???

There are two answers to this question, and I’m sure it is a combination of both that is the answer. But before I get there let’s look at what Gluten actually is and what the difference is (more…)

Sleeping baby

When thinking of having a baby, one of the first things women do, is buy some prenatal supplements, which is great. This shows that they want to be healthy to give their baby a great start in life. What they don’t realise is that they pay a lot of money for not very good quality supplements. Additionally women feel “safe” that they are giving their body all it needs to conceive a healthy baby.

What causes infertility?

Posted by on Nov 5, 2013 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on What causes infertility?

According to a study published in the Japanese Medical Association Journal, underlying factors of infertility are psychological factors related to the current stress of modern-day society, an increasing numbers of patients with polycystic ovary syndrome, endometriosis, or uterine myoma, weight abnormalities, such as obesity and underweight, and an age related decrease in reproductive function. Eighty to 90% of these factors contributing to infertility are derived from personal lifestyle and are considered to be preventable.

In Australia, 1 in 6 couples are infertile, 1 in 3 women are over the age of 35 years. 40% are female, 40% are male, 10% are combined, and 10% are unexplained.

WHO (World Health Organisation) has changed their reference ranges when it comes to sperm evaluations as you can see in the table below. Is this because sperm quality is decreasing and these are the ranges now considered to be normal? Could this have to do with our lifestyle? (more…)

Add a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses to your diet each day. That single serving can supply 70% of your daily iron needs. Look for organic blackstrap molasses.

Besides iron, it includes Vitamin B, calcium, magnesium and many other important minerals. Most importantly it will not upset your digestion or constipate you like iron supplements can.

If you don’t like the taste of it, disguise it in a smoothie, you won’t even notice it’s in there. Your energy will start to increase after a few days.

How useful are over the counter supplements?

Posted by on Oct 16, 2013 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on How useful are over the counter supplements?

supplementAccording to the National Health and Medical Research Council 2 in every 3 Australian adults are estimated to use at least one complementary and alternative medicine product (e.g. vitamin or mineral supplements and natural or herbal remedies).

Have you ever wondered why supplements are more expensive at your health care provider such as your kinesiologist, naturopath, homeopath or chiropractor than the chemist or health food store? Let me clear this up for you. They seem more expensive, but are they really?

I will give you an example about Vitamin B12. A very popular brand sells at an online chemist for $8.39 for 75 capsules. Pretty reasonable, right? We sell Vitamin B12 for $22.60. The popular over the counter brand includes 100mcg of B12 per dose (tablet). The practitioner brand includes 500mcg per dose. There are 294 doses in the practitioner brand. I don’t think I’ll need to do the maths for you to realise which one you are better off with.
