Health & Wellness 

Welcome to our May newsletter.
Now the seasons are turning, May is Immunity Month at the clinic.

We all know we need a strong immune system to fight infection, but there is also an emerging
recognition that a healthy immune system is essential for overall good health. Research shows that a
dysfunctional immune system plays a key role in the development of chronicdiseases as diverse as
depression, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, chronic inflammation and ageing.

With every new epidemic, be it SARS, bird flu, swine flu or an outbreak of antibiotic-resistant bacteria,
it becomes increasingly obvious that the conventional approach to preventing and treating infection is
beginning to fail our communities. The hero antibiotics of yesteryear are being rendered
next to useless by resistant organisms, with the cost and challenges of developing new antibiotic drugs
ensuring that future prospects are bleak. The sad fact is that allergies in children have reached epidemic
proportions, with some authorities predicting rates of 100% in the future. 

Strengthening your immune system is priority like it never has been before, especially if you
are someone who regularly catches colds and flus or generally feels unwell.

Let us show you how. 


Are My Lungs Joined To My Large Intestine?

The energy that protects our body from getting sick is call the Wei Qi. It is the energy that sits on the top of our skin and protects us from “evil pathogens”, like wind and cold. Our Wei Qi needs to be stronger than the “evil pathogens” so they can’t enter our body and make us ill!  Sound a little crazy? A lot of you might answer yes! But have you ever woken from a night sleeping under a fan or with the air conditioner on with a sniffle or sore throat? Continue Reading...

Eating For Immunity

Our immune system is highly dependent on some specific nutrients. The main ones are zinc and vitamin C. And guess what? These nutrients are also the ones your adrenal glands need to help you recover from and cope with stress. So, if your stress levels are high and your adrenals have used up most of your zinc and vitamin C supplies, you may likely have a lowered immune system. Continue Reading...

Are You Sick Of Catching Colds and Flus?

Michigan University did a study on healthy people to see what would happen if they were all infected with a flu virus. Although all immune systems were activated, only half got sick. Why? Continue Reading...

Is Your Immune System At Risk?

Support and enhancement of the immune system is perhaps the most important step in achieving resistance to disease.  However, when the immune system becomes compromised with exposure to viral/bacterial infections, certain chemicals, drugs and mechanical injury, it can cause the immune system to attack itself in susceptible humans.

Success Story of the Month

I would highly recommend the Wellness Assessment at Paddington Clinic to anyone as it’s truly changed my life. Without it i’d still be in the doldrums. I thoroughly recommend the acupuncture treatments. I had never had acupuncture before and i found it amazing
The detox was fantastic and it got the whole process started for me. All of my health issues have improved. My cholesterol is down, my blood results have been good and I feel I have returned to my younger self.
I’m so glad i did this as i would never have been able to go on my overseas trip without improving my health.
