Are Hidden Allergies Causing Many of Your Health Problems?
If you are experiencing an unexplained illness, there’s a good chance that allergies — to food, chemicals, mould, pollution and more — may be to blame.

Most people recognise itchy eyes, runny noses and hives or itchy skin as allergies. These are the typically accepted forms of allergy. However, there is another form that is not easily recognized, suspected or even agreed upon.It can affect any part of your body, from an inability to concentrate and think clearly, to fatigue, hyperactivity, an inability to sleep, joint and muscle pains, bedwetting, ear infections, and asthma.

Any food can cause allergies, even healthy foods like apples and pears. Some of the biggest culprits are cow’s milk or any dairy, sugar, wheat, eggs, preservatives and artificial colourings.

Some common environmental allergens are dust, moulds, pollen, cigarette smoke, pesticides, natural gas,petrol, perfumes, scented cleaning products, deodorants, disinfectants, synthetic carpets, the chemicals in new mattresses, Aspartame, and non-stick cookware.

In short, you could be allergic to just about anything, and it could be causing a dizzying array of symptoms.

If you are often fatigued, irritable, achy or depressed, it may be due to something in your diet or your environment. But what?

Sometimes the connection is obvious, for instance you get a pounding headache after being exposed to perfume in a department store. But often the connection is more subtle.

If you’re exposed to an allergic chemical, the negative reaction may take just a few seconds to surface. But if you’re allergic to a food, dust, mould or pollen, it could take 15 minutes to an hour before you get sick. There can also be delayed reactions to foods that occur 8 to 24 hours or more after consumption, as in colitis, mouth ulcers and bed-wetting.

By that time you probably won’t have any idea what to attribute the symptoms to.
If you feel flat or unwell all the time, or if you have a number of symptoms with no obvious cause that won’t go away, consider having Comprehensive Allergy Testing at the Clinic. The testing takes 1 1/4 hours, and you will receive a 3 page report on everything that your body is or isn’t reacting to. We also offer treatments for allergies as well. If you would like to find out if allergy testing would benefit you, please give the Clinic a call and speak to Peter.

Did You Get Sick this Winter?
How did your immune system survive winter this year? It was a particularly bad time for colds and flu, with many people coming down sick. A very good immune system will stop you from getting a cold or flu, and a good immune system will fight off an infection quickly and easily, so it goes to show how weak our immune systems are becoming. (No wonder cancer is now such a common condition!)A good immune system is not only your best defence against coldArmaForce Immune Tonics and flu, it also helps prevent many more serious illnesses. (Flu shots and antibiotics have a detrimental effect on your immune system, so they make you more prone to getting those problems again in the future.) In our experience, one of the best natural ways of improving your immune system is a practitioner-strength product called ArmaForce, which is only available through registered therapists. We suggest that you start taking ArmaForce now, and see the difference it makes to you next winter! ArmaForce tablets are available over the counter at our Clinic.

Latest Medical Research
In the interests of helping our clients make informed decisions regarding their health, we offer a selection of recent internet medical articles which may be of interest. Click on the headline to go to the full research article.Study Investigates Acupuncture and Counselling for Headaches“Current pharmaceutical treatments for tension headache offer short-term relief but nearly 80 per cent of users report adverse effects such as drowsiness, dry mouth, weight gain or dizziness,” Professor Greenwood said.”There are also concerns about the health impact of regularly relying on pain medications, and their effectiveness in the long-term.”

“We know that when acupuncture and CBT (counselling) treatments are used separately, they can provide relief for people who suffer from tension headache.” TV Viewing Shortens Adult Life Expectancy Researchers estimate that for every hour an adult spends watching TV their life expectancy shortens by almost 22 minutes. Breastfeeding Mums Warned to Limit Intake of Painkillers Breastfeeding mums are being warned to limit how many painkillers containing codeine they take, amid fears their babies could die from an overdose. New IVF Test Raises Questions on Down’s Syndrome Risk Evidence has emerged that in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) may boost the risk of a baby with Down’s syndrome.
