…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.
That’s the $60m question isn’t it – and that’s what most of the new histamine factsheet is all about. Obviously, I can’t cover 40-odd pages of info here for you in a blog post – you can get the £5 factsheet on the shop and on Amazon if you need chapter and verse. Many people think it is all …
As promised, here are my notes on testing histamine intolerance, taken straight from the factsheet – which you can find for a mere fiver on the shop and on Amazon. Diagnosing and treating histamine intolerance is quite complex. First, for checking neurological levels, you can test your levels of histamine in blood or urine nowadays quite simply. You will …
When I show people the list of symptoms for histamine ‘intolerance’, there’s always that look of doubt as it does seem you could literally get symptoms anywhere in the body. People distrust that unsurprisingly – a bit snake-oily, isn’t it?! The reason is because histamine plays so many roles in the body and there are …
