NATURAL SOLUTIONS FROM COMPLEX TO COMMON COLDS.
You can manage your autoimmune system with natural medicines. Naturopathy can help with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Cronh’s disease, Lupus (SLE), Psoriasis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
Children’s common colds, allergies, eczema and childhood diseases are easily treated with herbs, supplements and diet.
Respiratory immunity in children can act like a yoyo. Children experience more infections and allergies than adults. While a number of childhood infections are normal, some children experience a constant stream of infections and never fully recover indicating an impaired immune response.
Véronique uses gentle, effective and safe treatments.
Herbs behave as more than just assemblages of chemicals. When an herbal remedy is examined experimentally it is found to have activity that is apparently more than the sum of that of its active constituents. Their combination gives it unique properties, properties that are often hard to mimic with any single isolated drug. These properties are traditionally seen as a different sort of medicine with vital, supportive action of the body’s recuperative powers.
The miracle of homeopathic medicines.
Homoeopathy is often used in the treatment of chronic illness, acute conditions and minor accidents, which require first aid. Homoeopathy uses a small, specially prepared doses of a substance. Homoeopaths view physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of a person as interrelated and intimately connected. Symptoms of illness are evidence of the body’s natural and automatic efforts to heal itself and these clues are used to guide the Homoeopath when prescribing a remedy.
Homoeopathy is also a very effective, safe and palatable alternative therapy for children. Homeopathic remedy acts as a signal, which energizes or stimulates the body’s self-healing powers, mobilizing the defence systems and working on the mental, emotional and physical aspects of the body.
Homoeopathy also offers a method of maintaining health and preventing illness. It is not necessary for a homoeopath to wait for a conventional diagnosis before treatment can commence. Much illness can be “nipped in the bud” before a more serious disease appears.
Soothing massage therapy.
There is also consistent and conclusive evidence that massage therapy has the following benefits:
- Muscle health, flexibility and vitality, speeding up muscle recovery after activity or injury.
- It relieves muscles restrictions; tightness, stiffness and spasm, which may limit full movement.
- It encourages better muscle activity through increased movement of nutrients and removal of waste products.
- Massage can also delay muscle wasting due to disuse (after a stroke or during lengthy bed rest).
- Skin Health
Massage improves oxygenation and nutrition of the skin, increases skin elasticity and loosens scar tissue to promote health and movement. It also improves sebaceous secretions to lubricate the skin and improve its texture and condition.
- Cardiovascular Health
Massage may slow the rate of respiration via reduced stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system. It may also increase lung capacity and pulmonary function where they have been compromised by tight primary and secondary muscles of respiration.
- Lymphatic health
Massage reduces some forms of swelling (lymphodoema) by mechanically stimulating circulation. This can also be useful when a person is immobile due to pain or where injury interferes with lymphatic drainage. It decreases swelling after injury promoting repair and faster return to activity.
- Massage has also been shown to increase the presence of natural killer cells and their activity, suggesting that it may strengthen the immune system.
- Digestive health
Massage increases the movement of the large intestine, helping to relieve colic and intestinal gas. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system, stimulating digestion.
- Massage sedates and relaxes the body by normalising nerve activity. It can decrease insomnia and improve sleeping patterns through stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system.
- Massage decreases stress levels by activating the relaxation response.
