The Low down on Cholesterol management with Naturopathy.

The Low down on Cholesterol management with Naturopathy.

September 24, 2019

Hello and welcome to my podcast today. 

Episode 17... 

The Low down on Cholesterol with naturopathy! 

I tried something new... Let me know your thoughts. I made a podcast today for an hour before I wrote the blog.  I sat down in our herbal dispensary with some  books and share info from several sources both academic and nature cure based to give you the info. So, you can listen to the blog now too! 

Food as medicine ! 

I also have included a delicious recipe for a Norwegian Salad we had in Brisbane which is the perfect food for reducing cholesterol!  Easy to make and full of the right ingredients! 

Norwegian Salad to reduce cholesterol

Simply mix fresh greens with soft white cheese, smoked salmon, lemon juice and  cold freshly boiled sweet potato in slices. Add in some roasted globe artichoke slices for extra liver benefits!  Make a garlicy salad dressing with 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon of Olive oil, 1 clove of raw garlic and a small pinch of salt. This salad also contained some freshly pickled cucumbers. I love a dash of honey on this recipe too! 

Its all about cholesterol reduction naturally

Here we are in detox season and we want to reduce and control fatty acids and cholesterol in our body to help develop optimal wellness. We want appropriate cholesterol in our blood and this can help reduce risk factors for heart disease, arteriosclerosis, and stroke. 

Cholesterol is essential in our body. Its vital to your health and well being. Blood levels are measured at a fasting level 12 hours of no food to show a realistic and true reading of your blood cholesterol.  You can get this done at your local Doctors surgery or talk with your pharmacist and ask if they have any home test kits for sale! A google search might reveal some home kits that are a simple finger prick kit done at your convenience at home! Its good to monitor your cholesterol levels if you are at risk of cardiovascular disease! 

Cholesterol is  a waxy, white , yellowy fat and essential building block for our body, hormones, vitamin D and bile amongst other functions.  80% is made in your body and only 20% taken in  the diet.

Doing your liver detox is important in controlling fatty acid production and cholesterol metabolism and elimination. We want to reduce of chances of arteriosclerosis, cardio vascular disease and stroke on a daily basis. This is done by reducing our levels of Low density Lipoproteins and increasing our levels of high density lipoproteins. We want to have a higher ratio of the High density lipoproteins whose job is to take cholesterol particles to the liver for elimination. 

There are several types of cholesterol and I talk about this in my latest pod cast I made for you today. I sat in my herbal dispensary and went through some of my books looking at modern and traditional ways to control and reduce cholesterol levels. It was fun. I went into the Work of Dr Vogel in Switzerland in the 1950's. Plus I looked at my pharmacology text books and The Clinical naturopathy book by Jermone Sarris and Jon Wardle here in Australia . Plus of course I give you info from my book The Wellness Zone and other personal research.

Here I want to share with you some tips on cholesterol management 

1. Diet and lifestyle are the number one way to reduce serum cholesterol levels. This is a diet low in fatty acids, low in saturated fats, keep off the trans fatty acids. Have a diet low in processed foods . I read some research that said running or walking at heart rate 65% to 80% capacity for 32 km a week is optimal. Anything over 19km a week is beneficial. So, more reasons to get off the couch!

2. Garlic, ginger, turmeric, ginkgo biloba, hawthorne berry and  globe artichoke are all herbs that have been shown in research and traditionally to help reduce blood cholesterol levels. These herbs were also shown to work while you are taking them and the effect reduces and disappears when you stop taking them. So the message for cholesterol reduction is to take the herbs daily and keep them in your blood to keep up the health benefits! 

3. Detox your liver and blood when its detox season and keep your liver free of congestion which helps it function optimally and reduces risk factors.  

4. Essential fatty acids in the diet help improve levels of High density lipoproteins and research has shown that these are good in the diet. Iodine was suggested by Dr Vogel as an essential ingredient in prevention of cardiovascular disease.  Also fibre, B group vitamins such as B3 and B 12 were connected to cholesterol reduction. 

I hope this helps you understand how cholesterol works in the body. My podcast is for about 60 minutes and is full of extended information from this blog. Where I explain the low down on cholesterol and arteriosclerosis with some practical and helpful solutions.

Lets talk Spring detox ? With Nature cure as the leading strategy

Lets talk Spring detox ? With Nature cure as the leading strategy

September 18, 2019

Its going to be fun and simple. Lets talk spring detox

Episode 16 on my project wellness


Heres the plan. 

1. we make the commitment to nature cure being our primary source of medicine for the spring season. This is water, sunlight, nature, fresh air, natural clean foods and pure herbal medicines to cleanse and heal us! 

2. To start off we will take it easy and everyday commit to one green juice containing your favourite greens. Celery, spinach, cucumber, all green vegetables and green apples. Green grapes... green inside is the aim. Add one teapsoon of spirulina or your favourite green powder to the daily juice... You can have ore than one juice a day if you like! 

3. We are going to eat clean.... this is simple too.... lets list the " no" foods here such as processed foods, commercially packaged foods, anything with addatives and preservatives in it... here are the " yes" foods. Simple unprocessed foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh foods in every form that you eat. 

4. Have water in your diet daily... Make it 300ml every hour while you are awake if you can.... Keep the urine cycle going as thats the fastest way to cleanse your blood of all those built up toxins we are releasing. 

5. Take a good herbal detox blend with milk thistle for liver protection and detoxing, peppermint for deodorising digestive tract, globe artichoke for liver and gallbladder cleansing, dandelion for blood, kidneys and digestion and some black walnut hulls to gently start to release parasites. This is my number one formula for your spring detox. 

6. Think about adding a fasting day one day a week for the spring season. This is 24 hours of detoxing on pure water and herbal teas only weekly. 

7. If you want personalised program book online for a one hour session with me over the internet on a zoom chat. This is face to face online consultation for $88 one hour and will set you up for your detox plan. 

8. Email us and chat about your needs ( free service) Or visit us at Eumundi Markets on Saturdays for the latest detox plans and info! 

9. Book a herbal body therapy session with me in Caloundra for 1.5 hours of physical detox therapy where we wrap you in cotton and allow all those toxins to be released!

Today I'm helping you find simple solutions that are probably already in your kitchen. Think herb teas, spices, kitchen herbs and some easy yet old fashioned nature cure remedies.

Dom interviews Susanna Czeranko at ICNM THE HEVERT COLLECTION

July 8, 2019

When I was at the ICNM I met Sussanna Czeranko who is very inspiring. She spent the last ten years working on 12 books! The Hevert Collection which spans the history of naturopathic medicine writings that were located in the NUNM university rare books library. 

Starting with ISBN 978-1-945785-00-9 Origins of naturopathic medicine you can track these books down through NUNM press. 

I loved talking with Sussanna about  this project which was  so comprehensive collecting so much history data and putting into these volumes.....She did it at no profit and spent thousands  of hours working on the 12 volumes.  We are  getting the full set for our medicineroom herbal medical library.... Wow, what an incredible contribution to naturopathic medicine. Thank you Sussanne for chatting with me.
