Latest New Therapy

By John Coombs

Our latest new therapy program called ‘Bio Photonic Light System’ uses flickering lights to entrain healthy brainwaves and stimulate the production of healthy brain chemistry.

Bio Photonic Light System

The happy and healthy brain chemicals are essential to enjoyment of a fully functioning life. These include the neuro chemicals for confidence, bliss, reward, bonding, pain killing, anti-anxiety and energy.

With brain-related diseases reaching epidemic proportions throughout the western world (dementia related diseases being diagnosed at the rate of 1 every 4 seconds in USA), we need simple and effective solutions to ensure our brains get sufficient rest and appropriate stimulation as well as sufficient and effective sleep every night. Deterioration of sleep affects over 700 metabolic biochemical reactions and leads to multiple long term chronic health problems.

Is Fatigue Holding You Back?

By John Coombs

Dr Wilson was the first doctor to isolate the cause of chronic fatigue as a depletion or malfunctioning of the adrenal gland, which affects up to 50 other hormones in the body. He named this as Adrenal Fatigue.

Wilson_Quartet
His book ‘Adrenal Fatigue – The 21st Century Stress Syndrome‘ has many valuable tips and recommendations to help you through the issues which have affected numerous people, as chronic stress takes a toll on our modern society.

“After several years of helping many clients with chronic fatigue and vitality problems as well as many with more serious conditions, I can whole heartedly recommend the benefits of Dr Wilson’s program. I hear from people “I have tried everything” to overcome this lethargy, when usually there are quite simple remedies. I myself had a seriously debilitating fatigue in 2005 which fortunately I received help to treat successfully naturopathically.”
– John Coombs, Director, Global Health Clinics

If you are sick of chronic fatigue crippling your life and sapping your energy, contact us to benefit from with Dr Wilson’s adrenal quartet formula.

Your Protein Check: Cell Wellbeing Bio Profiler

By John Coombs

How are you tracking your protein intake? Are you maintaining optimum protein levels, especially if you follow a strictly vegetarian or vegan diet? 

Protein-in-vegetables

Our recent assessments of clients on the Cell Wellbeing Hair Follicle Scan show two thirds are protein deficient – 40% are depleted in amino acids at a priority level and another 27% at an advisory level.

This affects normal functionality of the body systems, including your brain chemistry and your ability to make good lifestyle decisions as well as leading to fatigue and sub-optimal detoxification processes.

Many people are trying to reduce meat and dairy intake or are vegetarians or vegans, however you need adequate protein which is essential in a stressful modern society with fast food trends and depleted or imbalanced minerals in our soil and agricultural systems.

The protein powders available at Global health – which you can add to your smoothies, mix with any of the milks, water or juice or use in cooking – are ideal for optimal health in balance with fresh vegetables, fruit and appropriate grains, seeds, nuts and appropriate animal products.

(*The chart above indicates percentage of calories provided by protein in these food items)

You need to check your Amino Acid profile if you are suffering from any of these symptoms:

– Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (tiredness)
– Food intolerances and chemical sensitivity
– Hair loss and low weight

– Thyroid malfunction
– Depression and anxiety

Even in the best of times your brain is often malnourished, which is then reflected in your physical health, sleep patterns, emotions and behaviour. At Global Health Clinics, we come across fatigue as one of the most common problems that a majority of our clients face on an every day basis.

Feed your brain sufficient protein to address chronic fatigue.
Healthy brain means a healthy mind and body.

Cell Wellbeing Bio Profiler assesses you for your amino acid profile, apart from Parasites and viruses, Nutrition, Toxins, Antioxidants, Microbiology, Minerals, Fatty Acids EFA, EMF (radiation). Based on your test results, you can address any deficiencies and streamline your pathway to well-being. Book now for your Amino Acid profile assessment:

Ozone Therapy in Peyronie’s Disease

(Abstract from an article from Ozone Research Center, Cuba)

Penile diseases including previous priapism, penile trauma and Peyronie’s disease can cause impotence due to fibrosis of the sinusoidal spaces of the corpora cavernosa, corporeal artery occlusion or neurogenic mechanism. Peyronie’s disease is not rare.

Patients usually present a painful plaque on the dorsum of the penis and may progress to development of penile curvature (distortion or deflection of the penis, especially when erected) with a decrease rigidity of erection. Persistence or progression of the penile deformity requires therapy, but of the several medical or surgical approaches none seem to be completely effective. It has been demonstrated the presence of oxidative stress in these patients with a remarkable decrease in superoxide dismutase.

Taking into account that ozone therapy increases the antioxidant defense system, improves oxygen metabolism, among other effects, the aim of this paper is to evaluate the efficacy of ozone therapy in a patient suffering of Peyronie’s disease. Patient was treated daily with ozone, by rectal application (increasing the ozone concentration between 20 and 35 mg/L and the volume between 100 and 200 ml), during 2 cycles of treatment of 20 sessions each and a third cycle (10 sessions) using rectal ozone application in combination with ozone directly injected in the fibrotic plaque (with an ozone concentration of 10 mg/L and a volume of 5 ml). Ultrasound measurement of the fibrotic plaque and an oxidative stress test, at the beginning and at the end of each cycle of ozone treatment, were performed.

The results demonstrated a high oxidative stress index (equal to 4, in a scale of 0 to 4) at the beginning of the treatment with the presence of a fibrotic plaque, measured by ultrasound. At the end of the first cycle of treatment a decrease in the oxidative stress index (equal to 1) was achieved, remaining with this figure during the other cycles of treatment. By ultrasound study, at the end of the second cycle of treatment, the fibrotic plaque diminished and at the end of the third cycle it disappeared. Penis retraction and deflection diminished significantly, along with a pain disappearance.

Ozone therapy could be recommended for the treatment of Peyronie’s disease.
