Chronic headaches are a sign of toxicity and perhaps cranial restrictions that impede the proper flow of cerebral spinal fluid in the brain. Toxicity is common due to all the environmental toxins we are exposed to daily. If we do not detoxify our main internal organs regularly, these toxins build up and can cause headaches. Migraines are a more serious form of headaches and usually a sign of more toxicity. The organs that are toxic and related to migraines include the liver, kidneys and digestive tract. By doing a regular detox, at least 4 times per year, at the change of each season, this is one important step towards alleviating migraines and preventing them in the future. Craniosacral therapy and osteopathy are treatments that can help release restrictions in the cranium that can be a cause for migraines.

We have all been told to eat less red meat and more fish because fish is much healthier for us. Unfortunately, fish is quite toxic and is often high in mercury, a heavy metal. Heavy metals such as mercury damage our cells and especially our digestive tract, liver, kidneys and brain. So how do we get the benefits of fish oils, the omega 3 fatty acids, without having to worry about the mercury and other toxins in fish? The answer is by taking a high quality, pharmaceutical grade fish oil supplement that is third party tested to be free from contaminants such as mercury, dioxins and PCB’s. You must also make sure that your fish oil supplement is not diluted with less expensive oils such as soybean oil. This only dilutes the efficacy of the fish oil. Your fish oil must also be higher in DHA as compared to EPA. DHA is the essential nutrient for your brain and nervous system that helps with memory and cognitive function. For more information on Fish oils, see VitaFish Oil, (*the only pharmaceutical grade fish oil without fillers and higher in DHA ) and how to detoxify the body, mind and spirit, read The Healthy Millionaire.

Chronic Sinus Infections-Natural Cures

Chronic sinus infections are usually caused by a fungal problem, not necessarily a bacterial issue. The way this problem starts is you have a cold or flu originally, and you do not heal completely from it, you are usually given anti-biotics to kill off any bacteria that are in the body. A few months later, you are sick again, this time with a sinus infection. You are given anti-biotics again, it is seeming cleared in a couple weeks, and then a few months down the road, another sinus infection, you are given another anti-biotic and so on and so on and so on…… Sound familiar? Unfortunately I have seen this scenario enough times in my practice as a naturopathic doctor to see a pattern. The original infection may be bacterial, but the anti-biotic given usually knocks off any of the good bacteria in the body that would prevent the fungal issue from causing the resultant sinus infections. The subsequent anti-biotics only propagate the fungal infections and this is why these sinus infections will never go away! Thankfully there are natural solutions. Probiotics are step one! You need to re-colonize the system with high quality human microflora to improve the immune function as well. See vitatree.ca and click on Probiotics for more information. Step two is of course staying away from the generic anti-biotics. Step three, use saline nasal mist daily to cleanse the sinuses locally.

Chronic Headaches and Detoxification

Chronic headaches, even migraines and tension headaches may be caused by a toxic liver! Many cases of chronic headaches that I have seen in my practice as a naturopathic doctor for over the past 11 years have been attributed to a patient’s liver being toxic. How do we get a toxic liver? Environmental toxins and free radicals cause liver damage at the cellular level and if we do not do anything about it to detoxify the liver, symptoms like re-occurring headaches can result. So what is the solution? DETOXIFICATION! There are many detoxification supplements on the market that help to cleanse the liver, however some of them are too harsh and can make you feel worse instead of better. I’ve formulated a very gentle yet effective detox formula for VitaTree Nutritionals called VitaDetox. Simply take 2 capsules, twice per day on an empty stomach to detoxify the liver, lungs, digestive tract, skin and kidneys. One bottle will last 2 weeks. We do recommend that you detoxify for 3 months if you have not detoxed before, and at the change of each season. Visit www.vitatree.ca to order online today.
