Glandular Fever

Glandular fever (infectious mononucleosis) is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus
. Although it can make you feel quite ill, full recovery is usual. It is a self-limiting illness which means it usually goes away by itself according to general medical opinion,some of these opinions are below

What is glandular fever

Glandular fever is a viral infection caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. This virus can be passed from person to person by close contact (especially kissing). It can possibly also be caught by sharing cups, toothbrushes, etc. It can take up to six weeks for the symptoms to develop after a person has first been infected with this virus. This is called the incubation period

Who gets the glandular fever?

Glandular fever can affect people of any age but is most common in young adults and teenagers. The immune system makes antibodies during the infection. This then usually provides lifelong immunity. This means that it is rare to have more than one episode of glandular fever.

What are the symptoms of glandular fever?

your body's immune system fights off the virus it causes the lymph glands to swell. Any lymph gland in the body can be affected. However, the glands in the neck are usually the most prominent. They can become quite large and tender.Flu-like symptoms. Like other viral infections, glandular fever often causes a high temperature (fever), muscle aches, and headaches.Malaise and depression. It is common to feel tired and low for the duration of the illness and for a week or so afterwards. Some people develop 'post-viral fatigue'
My experience with Glandular Fever has been that 90% of clients are female and aged between 14 and 19 always under pressure to perform,with exams, high personal expectations of success, often with high physical participation in sports and often emotional and creative ,All of these set of circumstances are the reason, in my opinion, they become victims of this virus as they are associating with like situation people .The condition when it has shown up in blood test will have an effect on the body for up to two years when things are particularly stressful,with sore throat and swollen glands being the first symptoms followed by main tiredness caused by the poor electrical action between cells rendering the glands under powered .
Prevention A good mixed diet containing protein taken regularly in small meals at 3-4 hourly intervals, water hydration is important and again in small amounts taken often particularly when doing sports .A good nerve nutritional formula breakfast and lunch with a good mixed high magnesium and other minerals complex at night .Cure These two formulas are the main base for this condition with glandular homeopathic remedies to treat the relevant symptoms The Pot Lot Stress B complex $29.50 for 120,Our Calcium and high strength Magnesium Complex tablets.$27.00 for 120 tablets or our new in Powder form complex $22 for 150 grams particularly useful for those with sore throats and difficulty in swallowing.To boost the energy naturally between the cells further Spirulina may be used particularly from lunchtime $25.00 for 250 tabs or in powder form . $29.00 for 500grm

Slleep Pattens

Sleep Patterns Not being able to sleep has become a very frustrating problem with many people. This situation is often due to a lesser physical activity with often a more emotional activity, plus the unnecessary high demands that we put on ourselves. This lifestyle can leave our minds doing crazy things that often make no constructive sense at all; like a parrot sitting on your shoulder that will not keep quiet when all we want is a calm mind and some sleep. It is often better to use a combination of things to create an overall balance within the self to bring back some feeling of sanity to your mind, not only at night but during the day as well. A better-fed emotional self will help create a feeling of comfort in your own skin that will keep you centered and quietly focused, and therefore more able to get the sleep pattern you think you need when you do try. Here are a few recommendations to help create that sleep pattern you are more happy with.Generally ,the more physically active ,or younger [growing]you are the more sleep is required 8-10 hours ,6-8 for the rest of us,choose those hours that best works for you .As most people will wake two or three times a night don't give yourself a hard time when you do ,just have another go at your drops ,cuddle up and just call it half time.
· Warm milk with nutmeg.· Relaxing herb teas but only half a cup (or many visits to the toilet may be needed).· Warm water, make sure it is only at body temperature.· 5-10 drops of our Sleep/Relax drops 30 minutes before sleep is an excellent recommendation. This is a combination of liquid relaxing herbs and mind-quietening Bach Flower remedies to prepare you for sleep time,this may be repeated at the recommended dose during the night . · If you enjoy a good book before bed, choose something less exciting. I also strongly recommend that any reading is done before actually going to bed. · A night meal that has proven to be helpful is chicken and brown rice,however, do try to eat as early as possible.· For those of you that have the list of jobs going round in your head, it may be easier if you get up and do some of them for a short time ,and this action should make you think like saying yes, now that bed is starting to look good to me and I am ready for sleep.· If an overactive, imaginative mind is driving you crazy, try keeping your eyes open – staring at one article, something like a picture , or anything that you are unable to have an opinion about and when your eyes close reopening them, you will be asleep in no time as you will have bored your active mind and it will give up that repetitive parrot-like chatter . Coffee or hot chocolate are not recommended for drinking late at night as they are stimulants. Do remember to take your Sleep/Relax drops with you to bed, repeating the dose when you are settled. Fantasyland is a great place to be especially once your snoring partner is off to sleep.HAVE A GOOD NIGHT

Labeled conditions

Difficulties with Labeled conditions ,Often the reason that some labeled conditions that have been given to you by your health adviser or by self-diagnosing on the internet have proven to be unsuccessful is generally due to the poorly interpretation of that Label and that creates a situation where you are at best only going to get a 60% chance of improvement and in some cases this action may make the situation more uncomfortable or show little or no improvement at all .
Generally, this situation arises through lack of information given to your health provider of actually how that label is affecting you as most people consider that a label fully explains the difficulty that the client is having and that the label gives all the information required for that someone to come up with a solution for their problemIf only it was that simple 'arthritis " to me means inflammation that is worst for movement ,heat, and activity, that is better for rest and I would supply a formula like good health One a Day or Sanderson Joint F.X using two daily for a couple of days to reduce the inflammation to a manageable level then reduce it to one daily to maintain and improve the joints condition.congestive conditionsAlthough this is generally called arthritis its symptoms are often not inflammatory in other words, things are not going to fast but in fact are slow and the pain or discomfort is worse after sitting and sleeping or on getting up from doing so and things generally improves as the day progresses with rain and the cold making the situation worse and will require acid foods to be reduced when possible working on stress /challenges balance
Yes you may have both to some extent due to the breaking up of the joint acidic crystals causing inflammation and in these cases I recommend both formulas using them to your discretion on what your personal symptoms are at the time .
Joint restore congestion conditions
one a day good health inflammation there are specials on these in-store and on the web and you are able to do one of each in a deal also.
Do please give full symptoms of your condition and not just the label to get the correct formula so as to save your wasted costs taking the incorrect one The Pot Lot at Roy's Place's photo.

Spring allergy's





Yes it is that time of year again there is great blossom and unfortunately seed heads on trees at the moment. The grass is growing and lots of lovely scented flowers for us all to enjoy, with maybe the exception being all you sensitives, as it's the time for sneezing and the eyes to start running, with this more noticeable with a northwest wind blowing. So what do you do about it? Balance the self using the nerve nutritional formulas regularly, you use that to stop everything from over reacting. Naturally avoid the known places that set things off. As Sensitives it is best to avoid heavy sedative type formulas and the best homeopathic remedy we have used has been mixed pollen by Weleda or the tablets by Naturo pharm. These are used, in bad cases, four times in the first hour and then three times daily, stopping their use when cleared, and may be reused as required. There is a new gel out that requires just a small amount under each nostril that has been very sucsesful in these cases If you feel the need to use something to assist in prevention use: New Era tissue salt combination H for hay fever I am told that pure vanilla oil under the nose has been effective at prevention and others have used fresh pollen grains also to prevent, but generally the mixed pollen homeopathic is the most effective and gentle I have used on clients.
shingles May 2014
is a disease characterized by a painful, blistering skin or rash that affects one side of the body, typically the torso or face. This condition may also be referred to as herpes zoster, one out of every three people developing shingles at some point in their lifetime. Though most people who develop shingles will only have a single episode, there are some who develop recurrent cases of shingles and is more common in older individuals and in those with weakened immune systems. The characteristic rash of shingles typically appears after an initial period of burning, tingling,itching or stinging in the affected area. After a few days, the rash then appears in a stripe or band-like pattern along a nerve path called a dermatome, affecting only one side of the body without crossing the midline The rash erupts as clusters of small red patches that develop into blisters which may appear similar to chickenpox. The blisters then break open and slowly begin to dry and eventually crust over. This will only effect someone that has had chickenpox before and as it is generally related to immune system balance as with cold shores, this being the case a good balanced herbal viro guard immune formula is recommended ,and as we are talking about aggravation to the nerve pathways and endings, pain, one would naturally use a nerve nutritional formula also twice daily breakfast and lunch. To reduce the viruses action use Lysine just as you would with cold sores but more often 1000 mg daily for one week as this is an amino acid [a part of protein] it is more effective taken away from other foods stop and repeat later if required ,peanuts or chocolate are not recommended at this time .Alternatively there is a life force Her- P liquid Homoeopathic formula.particularly useful for longer usage.

It is a well known fact that as the population average age has increased we have in fact become more healthy and able to live a more active life than before so what are we able to do to keep our body's working at a good rate so that we are able to do the things that still interest us and not continually saying I'm to old . Well the first thing is to stop saying I'm too old and start looking at the real reason, and that is you are not as healthy or generally fit enough . O.K.so there are a lot of you guys who have parkinson's , MS. Arthritis, and other complaints that tend to become more of a pain as we slow our activity down we do need to respect this in our advancing years and maybe give up bungy jumping and high speed skating But if you love it don't give it just remember to take break's more often and just give up the things that you should not have been doing anyway and that is, the things you don't like doing , everyone is better off staying more active than sitting on there butt saying I am to old and that goes for you old 40 year old's too Age generally isn't the problem your conditions and the thinking I am to old is .This is not a race either to see who is the best just stay fitter and more able to fill your life with fun and not just pain . If you are off to the gym ask the trainer to help you with a balanced small workout containing core strength and cardio work, some of you would benefit from home workouts using exercises that uses your body's weight there is some good charts on the internet but do work within your limits and Do not believe the comment there is no gain without pain ,as pain is letting you know you have over done it , as with any age group there is a need for the body to recover, so every other day for any age group with a mixture of gym work ,gardening and brisk walking on soft ground or at the beach is a good combination but do have fun with it . So what Pills and potions should the bucket list guys use,

WHAT TO DO ? SKIN

Well as we age the skin becomes thinner and tends to bruise easier and therefore you feel pain more quickly when knocked, the the circulation becomes a little slower but this generally is only because you have become less active ,so that will improve as you see yourself able to do more than you thought ,Personally I have only ever seen myself as who I am and that's not male or female this age or that in this box or that but just me, and as when I was born they only had left over body parts that were miss shaped and different sizes so they don't really work together but they gave them to me anyway ,so guys just work with what you have and improve it best you are able .
Important Formulas
1] Ones that we have or your Doc have recommended for your conditions
Keeping skin plump and soft is important as this will prevent damage from dryness that often causes inflammation, redness, infection, and quickness to bruise . use Omega three 2000 mg odorless capsules same size as the 1000 but twice the strength ,If you are constipated without laxatives use the 1000 mg and take more of them until you are not
Flaxseed also is a good bowl oil ,the amount of the oil caps required will depend on the dryness of skin and bowls if these are dry you have dryness throughout. ,Coconut oil on your skin and in your body[ instead of Margarine maybe ] is good to go with these but don't count it if you cook with it as although better than other oils for this , it is only really beneficial when unheated.
Collegian capsules will help strengthen the tissue and Clac fluor [no 1 salt ] will improve the elasticity of tissue veins /skin, If you are having a real problem with bruising and damage to fine veins some Rutin tablets 500 mg use one or two daily [used stop and start method . ] Jointsstiff/painful worse from sitting or sleeping use
Joint Restore twice daily , plus omega three 2000 ,and maybe collagen beautiful skin tabs ,Inflamed Joints

So Guys if your into new years resolutions make it to be .I will fill my life with the things I have fun with and allow myself to be more honestly me, " What ever my age Maybe" .

Self Healing




In each and every human being there is a divine spark ,creating that spark into a flame and guiding your reactions should be your life's aim. If you maintain a balance between the principles of good health and the conflicting demands of your personality and lifestyle you can lead a life free of disease and suffering. Your body and your life are a reflection of your mind ,it is your mind that shapes and determines your destiny We are told that what we need for this life we have when we are born and as we are here to create our own reality this is what I believe we start with and need to nurture . As the human condition is generally such that we spend 80% of our time self destructing , running ourselves down or just generally having expectations of failure due to fear.or just following instructions that are best suited to someone else ,therefore it is no wonder that we become so called depressed or just don't liking how we feel and that is way usually t a massive amount of ailments are often created by a lifestyle that our body's where not designed for . .Yet when we are able to reach a level where negative thoughts of failure are mainly replaced with constructive thoughts with the aim to work at creating what we really wont in our lives, and sharing with those we wish to be with , life becomes progressively easier . We create that what is in our minds so be careful what you think ,making certain that it is actually what we wont and not what we fear may eventuate. In the passed your doctors medication was used in treating symptoms of the reason why your sick and not why you became sick in the first place ,but there is new treatment and thinking for Cancer and other conditions that helps teach the body how to stop the reason why we have it, and this is very exiting and just maybe we will stop trying to cure things and work at why we have them. As most are aware I believe that general health maintenance and balancing ourselves is done ,by putting in the nutrition to balance who we are and what we do with our day so ,so that we have the energy and focus to stay content in our own skin when challenged . So in reflection our supplements and medication will be better used in assisting with our diet in maintaining the who we are so that the self is strong and that we stay positive and focused . This will reduce the requirements for a great deal of supplements, supper foods, and medication that have flooded the market that only generally treating symptoms and therefore have no real use in correcting why we are sick. The power of a positive mind can overcome any type of disease it just needs help to do so . Today's busy life style tends to create a great demand on our nervous system this will lower our positive action and focus,but maybe if we try to keep our lives as simple and free as is possible with our busy lifestyle and see that your body's nervous system is well looked after and remembering that the more you take out to complete your day , more is required to be put in

maybe not quite this creative

E Coli

EColi This condition is often blamed on just unpasteurised cows Milk,but in fact this illness is often due to eating undercooked ground beef. Other cases have been traced to drinking unpasteurized apple juice/cider, raw milk, eating produce contaminated by animal faeces, and recreational exposure in contaminated water. So a good 15 Lt water filter is recommended in all suspect areas. E. coli infection causes abdominal cramps and diarrhoea, which is sometimes bloody. There is little or no fever present, and the acute illness is generally gone in five to ten days. those under five years of age and the elderly are at most risk with this infection, Vir/imm liquid maybe used Most will recover in five to ten days without antibiotics or other specific treatment . Avoid taking drugs that stop the diarrhoea and there is no evidence that antibiotics improve the course of the disease. Continuous small amounts of fluid and electrolytesare used to aid in the removal of the bacteria is advisable and talk to your G.P or and your health guy What can you do to prevent E. coli when in suspect areas or weakened states. Cook all ground beef and hamburgers thoroughly. Ground beef should be cooked until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the patty reads at least 160 degrees F on a digital thermometer or until the patty is no longer pink inside. Drink only pasteurized milk, apple juice, or . Commercial juice with an extended shelf life that is sold at room temperature (e.g., juice in cardboard boxes, vacuum-sealed juice in glass containers) has been pasteurized, although this is generally not indicated on the label. Juice concentrates are also heated sufficiently to kill pathogens. Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly, especially those that will not be cooked. Raw sprouts can carry E. coli O157 and therefore should be avoided, especially by children under five years of age, immuno compromised persons, and the elderly, all of whom are at risk of serious disease if infection occurs. We do not recommend using pasteurised cider vinegar as this has no longer any benefits so is better left alone all together . Yoghurt products that contain sugar or fruit when purchased are also of no real benefit as thy kill off the good bacteria in yoghurt within four hours of manufactures mixing them and so thy become just a dairy sweet. Return to your normal diet when strength and bowl has returned too normal and you have used a good probiotic 50 billion bowl regenerator. Epsom Salts There has been some interest in the old Epsom salts . I don't recommend this to be taken internally but it does have a good number of uses ,far to many to mention here so go to our face book where there is a large list . Also himalayan Salt lamps there uses . We have been buying the red salt in bulk to reduce the price down to a sensible level info is also on Facebook . Enjoy the start of Spring everyone
