…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.
The UK’s National Diet and Nutrition Survey came out recently and showed some good, but also some worrying, trends. We seem to be eating just as little fruit and veg overall – and consequently fibre is low – we’re still not consuming enough oily fish, but red meat and sugar consumption has come down, although …
I love it when the Free From Food Awards shortlist comes out; it contains some real gems usually, alerting us to new goodies that might perk up our restricted diets! Get yourself a cuppa and have a scroll through – you never know: your next favourite food might be there! The manufacturers are really starting …
