HEALTH e-NEWS with Kim Balson, Naturopath 1
Welcome to our first e-news on all things good, wholesome, healthy, hearty and useful. The e-news is a new format for our clinic to deliver information within the allied wholistic health industry. It is not a weekly or fortnightly news. It will simply be there to read on your computer as it appears every few weeks or so. We say ‘Let life flow and let go’. We hope you bring an open mind and a sense of humour as you find a cup of beautiful fragrant herb tea or organic coffee to sit and relax for 5 mins whilst you enjoy some health e-news. In this issue:

▪ Naturopathy offers complete health care management. It looks at the total wellbeing of the person, not just the cause.
▪ The benefits to you then become long lasting and life-changing. The principals of sound health care management date back well over 2000 yrs and work to restore the body's natural vital energy patterning rather than creating more problems through poor treatment strategies.
▪ Many symptoms can spring from the following areas that are not functioning properly: digestive/gut, hormone, nervous, lifestyle/diet.
The clinic now offers the expertise of local Acupuncturist, Michelle Blum. She has a vast knowledge base and I often refer clients to her for fertility issues such as stimulating egg release for healthy conception, preventing miscarriage and for pain and injury management whether it be from a sporting injury or back pain from gardening. Most of us have our weak spots. For a little while she is offering 1/2price for your first treatment together with a free individualised health report on how well you are ageing, muscle mass and cell health. Wow. The things you will learn. Call Michelle on 0410642360. She practices from our clinic at 398 Tarragindi Rd, Moorooka, every Tuesday and some evenings.
After 12 years and 3 editions later my book, “Woman to Woman”, is now available as an e-book for easy download onto your ipad/computer or laptop. For access, visit www.kimbalson.com. I am hoping many of you will direct friends and loved ones to read more on the huge role hormones play in our lives, how they govern mind, body and emotions. If you have young women in your family, it is a must read. Please!!
Anyone for Juicing??
The clinic is now a listed distributor for the brilliant Compact Juicers as seen on several Masterchef Masterclass tv shows recently. Choice magazine reviewed them in 2009 and said they “Out Juiced the Rest”. Being cold pressed, your life saving juices will last for 2 days with almost 100% active enzyme activity still present. The fast commercial juices cannot deliver this and so goodness and therapy is lost. They also puree, mince, make sausages, dressings, dips, make pasta, juice wheatgrass and make nut butters but be prepared to stand and do a bit more chopping of veges and fruits. We can’t use whole fruits at a time. A small trade off for maximum benefit!! Price is $279.00 plus $20 delivery which takes only 2 days. Call the clinic on 07 3848 9800 or 0412 496 125 if you wish us to place an order for you.
Interesting things to know about the body:
Acid that is strong enough to dissolve Metal
Your digestive system is saturated with gastric juices that are key to digesting the foods you eat, and when hydrogen combines with chloride inside your stomach it creates hydrochloric acid (HCL) -- yes, that's the same hydrochloric acid used in fertilizers, dyes and, as it turns out, in the fracking process.
If the acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve metal, which it is (it's also used in electroplating), why doesn't your stomach digest itself? You can thank mucus for that. Mucus coats the lining of your stomach, protecting it from being broken down along with everything in your stomach. Thanks, mucus!
BE A LABEL READER
As many of you know, we treat many people including children, with allergies and only use the very best labs for testing. But have you also thought about the impact MSG (common chemical food enhancer)is making to our health? It causes severe dryness of the mouth, heart palpitations, neurological disturbances and in some can kick start allergic responses with repressed airways and skin disorders. It has never been safety tested for human use. So in order to make it a little easier for you I have compiled a list of ingredients that WILL ALWAYS CONTAIN MSG......
Autolysed yeast, glutamate, textured protein, yeast nutrient, calcium caseinate, glutamic acid, yeast extract, gelatine, hydrolysed protein, sodium caseinate, yeast food.
Foods include most soups, salad dressings, processed meats, frozen entrees, ice cream, and frozen yogurt, in some crackers, bread, canned tuna, and very often in "low fat" and "no fat" foods to make up for flavor lost when fat is reduced or eliminated. It can be found in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and dietary supplements. It is found in enteral feeding products and in infant formula. It is found in vaccines -- including vaccines used on children. It is found in hospitals where it is hidden in the jelly, chicken soup, and some I V solutions given to very sick patients. Its use is without restriction.
Are you a human being or a human doing?
As many of you know weight loss often occurs as a result of balancing out the body. It is a fantastic side benefit of a healthy body as many of you have already experienced. But did you know wonderful Harvard Medical School, USA, has found it you walk briskly for 30 mins for five days per week and change nothing else, you will lose 1/2kg in 3 weeks.
Now if you alter your diet and cut back the calories by 250 a day you will lose 1/2kg in 2 weeks. BUT WAIT, there’s MORE! By combining both, you will lose 1/2kg(half)PER WEEK. So who would like to start up a local walking group??
Hunting a recipe:
I am looking for a fantastic recipe for a flourless, dairy free (butter ok) rich chocolate cake with low sugar. I will substitute with Xylitol for the sugar. I know the Europeans have great recipes for this style of cake but does anyone have a simple easy one they could share? Something tried and tested would be great.
The current great 14th Dalai Lama has said, “The principal characteristic of genuine happiness is peace: Inner Peace”. Amen.
And a great line from one of Leonard Cohen’s songs says, “There’s a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in”.
Strive to be happy! It is our natural state of being.
