NATUROPATH

Joanne West N.D and owner provides naturopathic consults on request, using iridology (the study of health via an examination of the colour and structure of the iris, the sclera and the pupil.

The iris is the most complex external structure of the human anatomy. It has a reflex connection to every organ and tissue of the body by way of the nervous system.
It has been said “the eyes are the windows of the soul”

PREVENTION OF ILL-HEALTH IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL.
I have had twenty years experience in natural health and I have a passion for  working with auto-immune diseases specifically cancer patients as natural therapies can support the medical treatments given.

STRESS AND INFLAMMATION are the two main factors in disease and natural therapies can greatly improve and treat these conditions.

MASSAGE.
One touch. That’s all it takes. As soon as your skins nerve cells sense pressure they shoot a split second “chill out” signal to the brain. One study in the INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF NEUROSCIENCE found massage activates your parasympathetic nervous system. It combats stress by hitting a reset button for your lungs, belly ,heart, immune system, glands, brain and aches and pains.

SPECIAL: SLEEP SUPPORT
MAGNESIUM THE HERO MINERAL NIGHT AND DAY

There is no question that magnesium is a star amongst minerals when it comes to optimal health and wellbeing.
Magnesium is one of the most abundant minerals in the body and is essential for many fundamental biological processes through its involvement in enzymatic reactions.

A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP.
Getting a good night’s sleep is something that eludes many patients. Factors that can influence poor sleep range from stress, poor diet choices, an overactive mind to shift work and an increased stimulant intake.
The role of magnesium is to modulate normal and healthy muscle relaxation. When we want to sleep, we want adequate muscle relaxation in order to get to and have a restful sleep.

STRESS AND SLEEP.
Stress is increasingly becoming all too familiar in today’s busy lifestyles. Stress has many physiological effects that are detrimental to the body. Practitioners know only too well that stress and nervous tension can result in poor sleep quality as well as restlessness. There are also numerous studies that confirm this and associated stress is a risk factor for poor sleep.
Additionally stress can also have an impact on nutrient levels in the body, most importantly magnesium.
Bioceuticals Ultra Muscleze Night contains a combination of magnesium and Lactium to assist with stress and nervous tension.
By supplying the body with magnesium stores can be maintained at an optimal level despite the presence of stress.
Lactium helps to relieve stress and promotes relaxation in times of mental stress. It is considered to have anti-stress properties.
This formula also contains tart cherry. New and exciting research has demonstrated that tart cherry fruit can improve sleep efficiency and quality.
Magnesium levels in the body may be reduced due to poor diet, certain medications, increased levels of stress and strenuous exercise.One of the most important roles is healthy muscle contraction and relaxation, which helps to relieve muscle tension and cramping.
Magnesium is essential for maintaining the proper function of the cardiovascular system and is important in taking care of the heart’s normal healthy rhythm and vascular tone which affects how much the heart needs to contract to pump blood around the body.
Magnesium supplementation can also be of benefit in premenstrual syndrome. Research has shown that magnesium supplementation can decrease symptoms associated with PMS including fluid retension, mood swings and dysmenorrhoea.

TART CHERRY.
The health benefits of tart cherry have been gradually coming to light over the last three years.
Tart cherry may improve sleep duration and quality. Tart cherries are naturally high in melatonin, which may explain its positive effect on sleep.
