…to Purehealth. Here you will find tons of resources to help you get and keep well.
After nearly three decades in natural medicine and helping thousands of people 1:1 and in groups, I now run this as a virtual service to help people taking responsibility for their own health access the resources they need, including lab tests, information, supplies and support from our team of professionals.
(If you’ve followed an old link and arrived here, apologies. Use the search function and I hope you’ll find what you need. I had to do a big update and put all the lovely info on a larger site for you!)
Physical, functional or biochemical medicine is only half of the answer. To be effective, medicine also needs to address subconscious behaviour patterns, conditioned responses, beliefs, associations, fears and anxieties. For example: ‘I will never get well’ or ‘If I eat this food, I will react’ or ‘I can’t lose weight, nothing works’ or similar. Many totally unconconscious patterns repeat ad nauseum and keep us from getting where we want to. More than that, this kind of work simply speeds healing and recovery up.
If you need help, you can access appointments face to face or by Skype, phone, email with me or one of our team of professionals here. I chose them to work with me because they are very good at what they do and our skills dovetail nicely. We are all functional medicine practitioners and have different specialisms. Check out who you think ‘fits’ with what you need. You can also find a local practitioner there too.
Join the Facebook groups. There are many people who are going through or have been through the very thing you are. To help peer to peer support and sharing, I have set up some closed (and therefore very private!) Facebook groups. I keep them relatively small deliberately and we are now like family! Join the Purehealth Facebook Group or the TrulyGlutenFree one for gluten and grain-sensitive people. They are a fabulous bunch and extremely supportive and knowledgeable. Join and add to it!
Use Live Chat. If I’m at my desk and am not knee-deep in thought about something, it’ll be on. If I’m with someone, out or out of office hours, doing one of your calls etc, leave me a message.
Grill Fish On a Bed of Lemons You love fish, but what you don’t love is fish stuck to the grill or pan. Place the fillet on a bed of lemon or other citrus slices and you won’t be scraping stuck fish skin off and it’ll be even tastier. Nice tip 🙂
An interesting report in the Mail recently suggesting that checking and correcting your Vitamin D levels could help cancer recurrence. I would add prevention to that too. Angus Dalgleish, a professor of oncology at St George’s Hospital in London, is one of a growing number of clinicians investigating the role of vitamin D in cancer …
