Barbara Breede - Naturopathy


Naturopathic Medicine


As a Naturopath we treat the whole person body, mind, spirit, emotions and environment. We treat each patient by taking into account individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors. Naturopaths encourage self responsibility for health and assist in acquiring knowledge and education on their health.

Prevention:

Naturopaths emphasize the prevention of disease by assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and by making appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients to prevent illness.


Identify and Treat the Causes:

We seek to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms. We work with the individuals doctor when necessary.


First Do No Harm:

Utilize methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat; avoid when possible the harmful suppression of symptoms; and acknowledge, respect, and work with individuals self-healing process.

As a Naturopath in the clinic, some of the conditions presented in consultations we have worked with are:
    Back and neck pain, leg pain, frozen shoulder, sporting injuries, osteoporosis, asmtha, leaky gut, copd, arthritis, autoimmune disorders, allergies, food/chemical toxicity, food intolerance/sensitvities, ulcers, liver detoxification problems, gluten sensitivitiy, irritable bowel syndrome, fructose intolerance, reflux in babies, gerd, poor digestion, celiac and crohns disease, diabetes type I and II, metabolic syndrome insulin resistance, thyroid and adrenal dysfunctions, hormonal imbalances, headaches, migraines, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, chronic fatigue, skin disorders ie psoriasis and ezcema, anxiety, depression, insomnia, low immunity/repeated infections, coughs and colds, flu, ear infections and immune sensitivies due to the overuse of antibiotics.
Were seeing babies with asthma on dairy formula, young people in their early 20s drinking pepsi max all day and no water. It is very common to see people who have a bowel movement once every 2-3 days and think that is normal. I was shocked when a person in their late twenties told me on their first consultation that they had not had a bowel motion for 25 days. A common factor in children with austism is chronic constipation.

We assist people with post surgery recovery nutrition, pre and post natal nutrition, nutrition and herbal medicine for cancer patients, herbal medicine - in powder form, liquid (no alcohol) or capsule/tablet, vitamins and minerals (naturally derived not synthetic), essential oils, whole food extracts, alkaline water, hydrotherapy, and therapeutic exercise, relaxation to reduce stress, remedial massage, joint mobilzation, cupping, compresses, bowen therapy, nutrition for adults, children and babies. We encourage people to eat right for their genetic blood type; if you are constantly consuming food your cells are unable to effeciently metabolise, inflammatory conditions will prevail, leading to chronic health conditions at any age We also advise eating an alkaline diet..

Computerised Iridology is used and it is highly beneficial when indicated, to do laboratory functional pathology testing, of which there are hundreds of tests, including salivary hormone profile, alcat food intolerance testing, organic acids for environmental pollutants, genetic testing, extensive neurotransmitters, glutathione, urinary amino acids, cdsa, zinc/copper ratios, mauve factor, heavy metal testing and hair tissue mineral analysis.

As Naturopaths we provide a service which assists people with all aspects of health including babies, toddlers, children, teenagers, athletes, adults and the elderly.



Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis


HTMS provides accurate assessment of nutritional minerals, nutrient interrelationships and toxic heavy metals that may be affecting your health, and has been extremely useful in detecting nutritional disturbances in many disease states.

We cannot survive without minerals as they are essential co-factors for other nutrients ie vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and fats. HTMA reveals relative imbalances between nutrients and is a very important tool in the field of nutrition for providing information for balancing your bodys chemistry.

If you have a resitant health condition; or you are being treated for a chronic illness and your blood tests from your doctor reveal a normal range or only a slight elevation or deficiency from normal HTMA analysis will be able to reveal your unique mineral imbalance, nutritional status and metabolic type, thus providing you with vital information.

HTMA reflects storage levels of minerals rather than what is being transported in your blood.
36 essential and toxic minerals are tested at once and 27 significant mineral ratios.

Would you know if you are calcium, magnesium, zinc or selenium deficient? Or have an excess of
calcium?

Is your body hiding significant amounts of toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminium that is interfering with essential mineral absorption?

Zinc is used in over 200 different ezymatic processes including the antioxidant enzyme syperoxide dismutase (SOD) helping to quench free radicals and oxidative stress. Zinc is a constituent of Insulin a vital hormone for carrying glucose into your cells for energy production, essential for the epidemic rise in insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, (Insulin resistance also contributes to high cholestrol). Zinc is an essential mineral in prostate gland function, if you had an prostate hypertrophy it would be wise to check your zinc status. A zinc taste test will inform you of your zinc status but not the mineral interrelationship with other essential minerals or toxic heavy metal status or ratios. (A zinc excess is rare unless you have been taking mega doses of zinc for years, this can cause copper or iron deficiency, also sodium to patassium imbalance).
Zinc supplementation is necessary for treating acne, impotence, autoimmunity, slow wound healing, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and many other health issues. Low zinc hair levels have been found in children with slow growth rates and failure to thrive and in children with dwarfism.

Different minerals reflect the metabolism of our glandular system. ie people experiencing hypothyroidism will have increased intestinal absorption of calcium with lower than nomal excretion of calcium via the kidneys. Thus, calcium will accumulate in soft tissue and joints contributing to the development of arthritis , this is in part due to a magnesium deficiency.
