Herbal Medicine The effectiveness of herbs has also been well documented over hundreds of years. Recent research into herbal medicine shows significant benefits. The cost of this research poses a problem, as there are limited funds to run such studies, so the amount of research is small in comparison to the research undertaken by the big pharmaceutical companies. In modern day society the effectiveness of herbal medicine is being rediscovered by thousands of people. Much household use and knowledge of herbs had been lost. Now many people are reluctant to overly rely on synthetic drugs and are once again finding herbs help them the regain health and vitality. Naturopathic Treatment Naturopathic Medicine treatments treat the whole person rather than just the condition. This means that during a naturopathic consultation all aspects of your health will be considered rather than one illness or condition. You will be asked detailed questions about your current illness, past medical history, eating habits and lifestyle. Stress levels and biomechanical factors are taken into account. Naturopaths use various ways to assess your health such as nail, hair and tongue analysis, allergy testing, laboratory tests, metabolic typing tests  iridology.

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis  The hair tissue mineral analysis (HTMA) tests 20 minerals and toxic metals minerals in your hair. The test results are divided into 3 separate sections; the minerals we need (the nutritive minerals), the toxic elements that can harm your body, and the minerals the body does need but in high amounts are harmful. The hair tissue mineral analysis is a laboratory test using a Mass Spectrometer to assess mineral levels in parts per million or parts per billion. This is the same type of equipment used for testing of soil or rocks.  Hair, like all other body tissues, contains minerals that are deposited as the hair grows. Although the hair is dead, the minerals remain as the hair continues to grow out. A sample of hair cut close to the scalp provides information about the mineral activity in the hair that took place over the past three to four months, depending on the rate of hair growth. Your hair must not have been coloured for 4-5 weeks prior to the test. 

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis Exactly What is Tested? The nutrient minerals tested in the Hair test are: Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Iron, Copper, Manganese, Zinc, Chromium, Selenium, and Phosphorus. The toxic metals tested in the Hair test are: Lead, Mercury, Cadmium, Arsenic and Aluminium. The additional minerals tested (ones we need is very small amounts but can be toxic in large amounts) in the Hair test are: Nickel, Cobalt, Molybdenum, and Lithium. This full test gives information which is more helpful than just testing for individual minerals/toxic metals alone; as the levels of nutrient minerals can affect the levels of the toxic metals and vice versa.

Homeopathy Homeopathy is based on the principle of like cures like and was discovered by Samuel Hannaman over 200 years ago. Homoeopathic remedies contain minute amounts of particular substances, which if taken in large amounts would cause the same symptoms, which by h omoeopathy they can cure. For example the Arnica plant is highly toxic, if it is eaten it causes severe damage to the blood vessels, but taken in a h omoeopathic way (in amounts so diluted that chemists can find no trace of arnica in the remedy), it cures or prevents bruising. Bach Flower Remedies The 38 remedies discovered in the 1930's by Dr Bach are made from flowering plants and trees. Dr Bachs remedies are not prescribed according to illnesses or physical conditions, but to your personality, mood and emotional outlook. They are used as a way of restoring peace of mind; this allows the body to fight illness (whether mental, emotional or physical) by strengthening the bodys resources. Bach Flower Remedies are safe to use with children or babies. Your health improves as your emotional state becomes more positive. Deep Tissue Massage this is a rigorous form of massage used where you have a high degree of muscle spasm. Deep Tissue Massage is used when you need a long lasting benefit. Massage improves the circulation of the blood throughout your body. This increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to all your cells including the muscles and joints. Better circulation can help to remove metabolic wastes such as lactic acid from your muscles. Massage will also increase blood supply to the nerves and brain this stimulates motor nerve points which helps to alleviate stress and tension. Video Links:
