Protocols for Common Health Complaints

Over many years, I have developed protocols that target common health issues we all face at one time or another. These protocols are generally herbal approaches with supporting home remedies. However, to put them into practice a supportive diet is required and herbal treatment need to be adjusted for each body-type.

These smaller programs generally require one or two sessions with additional efforts to improve digestion and detoxify as necessary.


Acid Reflux

Other symptoms include indigestion, bitter tastes in the mouth, belching, nausea, vomiting, burning sensation in the throat or chest, headaches, itching, rashes and pimples.

Generally a Pitta-reducing foods and herbs are used while sour and acidic foods are are avoided. The protocol includes individualized dietary recommendations to improve digestion, before and after-meal herbal formulas and an intestinal calming herbal tea.

Requires only one session and sometimes a follow-up session. Often requires liver detoxification.


Acne

Includes specific supplementation and dietary recommendations with natural skin care guidelines and effective home treatments. Recommendations include  such a variation on the very effective formula using lemon juice, honey and cinnamon depending on your type of skin, natural toner suggestions and recommended cleaning products.   All cases will improve.  For women, hormonal balancing herbs and teas are usually also required.

Allergies & Asthma

Includes specific supplement recommendations, dietary guidelines, an allergy tea based on Nettle leaves and instructions for nasal cleaning and air filtration. Often requires liver detoxification.

Common Cold, Flu or Infection

The first signs of infection are often just an itchy or slightly sore throat.  Within hours of noticing early symptoms of viral infection, the immune system has to be strengthened by giving it the nutrients it needs to work such as Vitamin C and high anti-oxidant foods as well as good sources of the oil soluble vitamins including E, A and D. Ayurveda like other ancient healing sciences provides many natural remedies that effectively fight infections as well as strengthen immunity. In general terms, treatments include herbal formulas, supplements, dietary changes and lifestyle measures like resting more.  This protocol includes supplement recommendations, home remedies and custom herbal products to fight infection and improve immune function.

Constipation

Includes dietary guidelines, supplement recommendations, home remedies and laxative herbal powders.  Most cases are successful but chronic cases require colon cleansing: signs of an unhealthy colon include heavy tongue coating, sinking stools, only or or no stools passer daily. Often requires liver detoxification.

Degenerative Bones

Includes individualized dietary guidelines, supplement recommendations and a herbal high-mineral tea. (Works well but takes months).

Headache Relief


Headache can be caused by sinusitis, hypertension, constipation, over working, mental stress, indigestion, acidity, sleeplessness and fever. Often, it is also present as a symptom of another disease. As there are many different potential causes for headache and migraine, the treatment cannot simply be pain relief. Lifestyle and diet needs to be carefully considered and appropriate changes made.

Headache Diet:
Vegetable juices and soups are recommended. Fruits like apples and grapes, and some sweets and dairy products can be taken moderately according to digestive capacity. In the morning, take a glass of water mixed with a teaspoon of honey.  Avoid fried food, frozen or cold food, meat, spicy or dry food, tea, coffee, and food that cannot be easily digested. Yogurt should be avoided especially in the evening. Ayurveda also recommends against taking sour or acidic foods. Minimize the consumption of pickled or smoked food, alcohol, cheese and chocolates as much as possible.

Home Remedies:
  • Grind dry ginger and make a paste by adding water. Apply this poultice on the temple.
  • Take I tablespoon of almond oil and boil it. When it cools down, put a few drops in each nostril

Often requires liver detoxification.


Insomnia / Poor Sleep

Includes eating habit guidelines, necessary supplement recommendations, a herbal "knock-out" formula and a sleep tea.  (Most cases successful but can be due to other factors such a sleeping conditions and the environment such as including EMF). Generally requires some nutritional therapy a few herbal products.

Low Libido (male)

Includes supplement recommendations, a male libido boosting tea and bee pollen with Ginseng powder.

Memory and Focus

Includes some dietary guidelines, specific supplement recommendations and herbal teas. (Always an improvement in memory is noticed, however, more degenerative conditions require detoxification as well).

Menopause Symptoms

Includes a nutritional deficiency assessment and specific supplement recommendations, a custom Ashwagandha and shatavari based herbal powder and a menopause/hot-flash reducing tea if needed. (Improvement in all cases, however, recommendations and treatment vary greatly with each individual).

Mild Depression

Includes a nutritional deficiency assessment and specific supplement recommendations and an herbal tea with St. John's Wort.  Some improvement with all cases, however, lifestyle habits, stress levels and toxicity remain major factors.

PMS & Peri-menopause

Includes a nutritional deficiency assessment and specific supplement recommendations, home remedies and a PMS tea with chaste berry, dong quai, black cohosh root and other herbs.  (90% success rate of greatly reduced symptoms especially cramping).  Can also require liver detoxification

Prostate Inflammation (male)

Includes some dietary guidelines, specific supplement recommendations and a prostate support tea to be taken for 60 days. (Success rate depends on severity and compliance).

Saw Palmetto: More than just for prostate health, saw palmetto has been used for a multitude of issues such as low sperm count, hair loss, bronchitis, diabetes, inflammation, migraine, and prostate cancer. It is also used to help aging muscles that tend to lose suppleness and vigor. When saw palmetto is used regularly, muscles plump up. For these reasons and more, you'll find this fruit as one of the key ingredients in my Prostate tea.


Stress & Anxiety

Includes eating habit guidelines, some dietary guidelines, specific supplement recommendations, a relaxing tea and an anxiety herbal formula with passion flower, brahmi, kava and valerian root. Improvement in call cases; lifestyle and stress levels are major factors.

Often requires liver detoxification
