Immune System

The 7 Pillars of Wellness is my framework for moving you into full wellness and wellbeing. There are seven pillars of wellness and these pillars are crucial for you to have a healthy immune system. They need to be reviewed in order to remove your toxic load, rebuild your health and move you into restored health and wellness. We call this the Rejuv Triple R Principle. THE REJUV TRIPLE R PRINCIPLE REMOVE the physical, emotional & environmental toxins that are making you unwell. REBUILD at a cellular level so all of your organs, muscles, bones and 11 body systems function in harmony allowing you to move into wellness and reach your goals. RESTORE the foundations of your health so you move into optimum wellness long term. OUR MAIN LINE OF DEFENCE AGAINST VIRUSES & PATHOGENS Our immune systems are our main line of defence against harmful pathogens in the environment around us. This includes viruses such as COVID-19. Infectious diseases are caused by pathogens, which include

This week I want to talk to you about the emotional aspect of doing our Rejuv Seasonal Cleanse and liver flush. Because liver flush detox emotions is a real thing. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the emotion attached to the liver is anger. This is why it’s common to feel extra irritable and to have anger surface during a detox. Our detox will also mobilise parasites and fungus and due to the die-off effect, you can also feel irritable and angry. this passes within a few days or you may find you feel low-level irritability over the month of our flush or seasonal cleanse. The point is to make you aware of this so you know it’s normal, it’s a good healing effect and as they say better out than in! So be kind to yourself and embrace this journey. Sometimes sadness or overwhelm can bubble up too, whatever you are feeling is ok and each emotion is valid. If you need to

In my recent blog about your immune system, environment & toxic load, I listed 17 ways to reduce your toxic load. Two of the ideas relate to grounding and how you can de-stress your body and reset your electrical circuits. Grounding will not only improve your mental and physical health but will also help reduce inflammation & body fat. Grounding, or earthing, relates to connecting electrically with the earth.  A growing body of research has found several health advantages as a result of grounding your physical body. Regrettably, with our contemporary rubber or plastic soled footwear and enclosed bedrooms, we have less of natural electrical interaction with the earth, unless we're barefoot outside. This electrical connection is vital for a couple of reasons: The earth is a massive repository of negatively loaded free electrons. The cells in our body are incapable of neutralising the positive charge, which emanates from things like electron-deficient free radicals without a connection to the earth.  The consequence of excess positive

After hitting the wall with my health last month due to increased stress associated with COVID, homeschooling three kids and having to close our clinics temporarily, my stress hormones went through the roof! As a consequence, my thyroid function dropped, and I was feeling emotionally and physically weak, and I gained weight, particularly belly fat. The number of patients I've treated for hypothyroidism, Hashimoto's disease, hyperthyroidism and Grave's Disease has tripled over the last five years. The reduced nutritional value of our food (particularly trace minerals), increased toxic load, and stress are the main culprits, in my opinion. Many are now living in emergency mode or 'fight or flight mode' most of the time with over-revved Triple Warmer Meridians leaving no energy left for us to heal. For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine has been used to help restore health and vitality. A meridian is like an 'energy highway' in the human body which can be traced throughout the body;

Inflammation is a critical factor for our overall health, from pain to bone health, obesity, gut function, heart health, liver function, brain function, memory & cognition, immune response and even your hair, skin & nails.  When we get injured, it's also part of our healing mechanism to repair damaged tissue and protect ourselves against pathogens. In such cases, inflammation is helpful, in all other cases; however; it tends to be harmful. There are two types of inflammation, acute and chronic.  Acute inflammation is your body's natural defence against damaged cells, viruses and other harmful invaders, helping the body to heal. Chronic inflammation is systemic, and what we see a lot of in our Rejuv Wellness Clinics. This kind of inflammation is low-grade and lasts for weeks months or even years.  Chronic inflammation Chronic inflammation is linked to almost every significant health condition and disease due to the production of free radicals that can cause damage to healthy cells if your antioxidant levels are not adequate. If

Your Immune System is impacted by your everyday environment and it is key to long term health and optimum wellness. Environment is the third of the Seven Pillars of Wellness and it is more important than ever during the current pandemic of COVID-19. We are all bombarded with toxins each day, either from our own poor lifestyle choices or from our environment. Did you know that your home has its unique microbiome? Often you may notice that households have a distinctive smell or feel this is all part of each home's microbiome. Not only is it key to reduce your toxic load from your environment and what you ingest, but it is also vital to boost your internal microbiome and the microbiome in your home. Your home microbiome comes from the cleaning products you use, the number of plants you have, if you have pets, if you spend time in the garden, if you wash all the dirt off your

The digestive system plays a crucial role in our immune system, mental health and metabolism. The gut has a significant impact on several areas of your health, and it all comes down to the gut microbiome. With the current stress levels on an all-time high due to COVID-19, we are seeing a considerable rise in patients with gut issues. The human body cannot discern if the stress we are under is a real threat or just one that we are imagining. As a result, we go into the fight or flight mode, and the blood is shunted into our arms and legs, preparing to take action. Our digestion is then impaired as the blood diverts away from our GI tract. It is imperative to eat your meals in a relaxed environment and not while watching stressful programs like the news or a violent movie. The gut is filled with many different types of bacteria. The bacteria are estimated to outnumber our normal

Every day, we build up and carry a toxic load and sleep is key to allow our nervous system to rest and detoxify.  Sleep supports your immune system, preventing illness, disease and premature ageing. Poor quality or limited sleep on a regular basis is linked to poor immune function. An interesting study by Prather et.al in NCBI in 2015, revealed that adults who regularly slept less than six hours per night were almost five times more likely to get a cold compared to those who slept well for more than seven hours a night.  There are five stages of sleep that rotate between Non-Rapid Eye Movement (NREM) and Rapid Eye Movement (REM) and include: drowsiness light sleep moderate to deep sleep deepest sleep dreaming The study suggests to sleep well for 7-9 hours is optimum to support a healthy immune system & help you get adequate levels at all five stages of sleep, thus supporting this key
