For most women early menopause is a frightening experience, even though it comes with the cessation of the monthly bleeding which may seem like a relief to many. It is as if age has somehow caught up. Women believe that this is the beginning of the end, that sexual pleasure is on the downswing, the vagina will dry up, bones will disintegrate, skin will become wrinkled and dry, weight will increase and depression will soon set in.

Judy had suffered from depression for many years and was taking antidepressants when she came to see me.

2021-12-06T13:44:19+00:00By |Natural Living|

Sinusitis is a confusing topic, not only for patients but for many health practitioners as well. The confusion arises because of the many facets of this condition, problems with establishing the cause, and similarities between the symptoms of infection and those of allergy. In many cases allergy and infection coexist, feeding on each other, so that the allergic reaction also provides a home for micro-organisms and any infection (and its treatment) can trigger an allergic reaction.

The Ginkgo biloba tree species has been around unchanged for about 150 million years. That’s a long time, and the fact that it has survived unchanged perhaps suggests that it has powerful internal survival mechanisms which have been perfected very early on despite changing environmental factors over this time. Specimens more than a thousand years old have been reported in China, Korea and Japan.
