Allergy Testing from wherever you are!

If you are looking for a reliable, accurate and scientific allergy test, I work with one of Europe's leading diagnostic laboratories who offer a whole range of allergy testing.

The method used is blood testing, and you can get a blood sample taken by your Practice Nurse or a local clinic which is then sent back to the laboratory for analysis.

The results are then sent to me, and I am now offering results consultations over the phone which are free of charge.  So if you are not local to my London clinic, you can still access my allergy testing services.

Please contact me for more information.

Candida Part II

Following on from my previous post about Candida, I thought I'd follow up with some more of my thoughts on this common condition.

Candida can't be blamed solely on antibiotic use, or a sugary diet, because many people have had lots of antibiotics in their lives without any adverse effects or traces of Candida.  So what makes individuals susceptible to systemic yeast infection?  Why does it happen to one person but not another?

I think stress plays a huge part.  Stressed individuals, in general, are not in as robust health as people who are relaxed and carefree.  They can't be.  If the body is busy pumping out stress hormones, and keeping itself in an almost permanent state of fight or flight, it can't get on with the housekeeping duties of staying healthy.  Stress can also suppress the immune system, which is an important factor in the progression of Candida.

And 'stress' covers a whole spectrum of situations; worrying, anxiety, fear, depression, oppression, misery are all stressful conditions that affect the body.

So if you think you have some of the symptoms of Candida, as well as nutritional intervention, addressing the stress is equally important.  Have you ever tried meditation?  It's something I recommend quite frequently...

Resting your mind is as important as resting your body

Keyed up?
Highly strung?
A worrier?
Always 'on the go'?

I am starting to understand that these feelings underlie most health problems.  When I speak to a new client, and we discuss what kind of symptoms are bothering them, it nearly always turns out that they would describe themselves as 'a worrier', or sometimes people are very aware that generalised anxiety is a part of their daily life. Or often a stressful job is cited as the cause of daily anguish.
