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.
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.
Please note I am no longer taking cases or patients on – please don’t ask me as it hurts to say no! There are lots of other ways I can usually help though…
Purehealth is here to help people taking responsibility for their own health access the resources they may need, including tests, information, protocols and support.
Finding your way through the resources…
Use the search to find articles, research and tips from over 1500 blog posts and hunt through the Health A-Z here. I am bound to have written about it somewhere!
If you’re not sure where to begin, start with the core approaches that I’ve found work for the vast majority of people:
If you have a specific condition and want to read up about it, check the A-Z.
If you are feeling TATT (tired all the time), have some gut issues like wind and bloating, need to lose a bit of weight, especially on your tummy, and generally feel you need an MOT. Or, you want a foundational sort-out kind of approach, do the Gut Plan and the Belly Fat Plan (I must change that name; it’s not just for weight loss!). This was the approach we gave 90% of patients in-clinic, no matter what they came in with. It sorts out most of the core issues.
If you have a chronic illness or a complex condition, especially one of the syndromes like ME, chronic fatigue, multiple intolerance (to foods, chemicals etc), fibromyalgia, anxiety disorders, you need the TrulyGlutenFree Gluten Plan (in fact, not just about gluten, what am I like?!) and the Healing Plan.
There are other specific plans like the Adrenal Plan, Candida Plan and tons of other free and paid-for ebooks, but those two approaches are the most applicable to most people.
Got a question..?
If you are stuck and need some advice, book an Ask Micki, then send me an email with your question and I’ll send you my considered response, where to start investigating, what to read, where to go next etc. Read the Overview on this page to see how it works.
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 for general natural health stuff or the TrulyGlutenFree one for gluten and grain-sensitive people and those with complex chronic illness. 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.
I was asked this the other day and thought it might be useful to share some info. Many of us haven’t been able to get canned pulses during lockdown, but you can normally get dried beans. The trouble is: no-one ever knows how to cook them! Here’s a useful article and video from Good Housekeeping …
American researchers have coined the term ‘neurobics’ for brain exercises that can help us build new neural pathways, change habits and strengthen our cognition. I love that name! It’s important stuff, though, as we know that people with better mental processing and agility tend to have slower rates of mental decline and cognitive issues like …
Lovely words for you today from Rick Hanson on the subject of being kind. Rick does the really excellent Foundations of Wellbeing programme which I highly recommend in my Stress factsheet. RICK’S REFLECTION: KINDNESS, A BEAUTIFUL TWO-WAY STREET Some years ago I was invited to give a keynote to the largest audience I’d ever faced. …
