Under the auspices of Aligned Wellness Academy (AWA)

It is to understand why this corrosive State of Health, back-pain and all other musculoskeletal aches and pains are experienced by almost everybody and also more importantly, how you may have control and be able to manage these debilitating Conditions thus returning your life back to you by aligning your pelvis and spine and more.

We include of course, the spectacular Taiwanese Yuan Shi Dian (YSD) (Origin Point Medicine) to assist resolution of disorders of neck, shoulder, wrist, hip, knee, ankle, sciatica, and lumbago but also to bring healing to most other ailments that beset mankind, including, for example, very stubborn Conditions, as with Parkinson’s, Diabetes, and Dementia – in this way, we may help reduce the stresses of daily life. To maintain physiological and psychological health, all bodily systems need to be in balance and this means to be interiorly warm to hot – we in the West particularly are too interiorly cold in temperature, giving rise to most illnesses.  This concept, strange to our ears is explained with this important Course/Workshop.

This 4-Day Certified Course starts Saturday 2nd October and for the  following three dates: Friday 15th October; and Friday 5th and 14th November From 9.30am to 5.30pm at:  Alexalign Clinic, 200, Vaughan Road, West Harrow, HA1 4EB. U.K. We will be  teaching both disciplines as outlined above which will be invaluable and priceless as adjuncts to your existing therapies. We take enthusiastic Laymen who are willing to learn our Systems. We introduce also the brilliant Pelvic Corrector Ring Device.

Thermal Imaging in Dentistry – Next Level Diagnostic Tool?

Occasionally a patient may present to the dentist with an array of symptoms that do not lend themselves to being easily related to a specific tooth or gum area. Vague symptoms, dull ache and /or undefined site whereby the location of the pain is not easily identified even by the patient. Tinnitus, chronic headaches that could not be confused with migraines, unable to open mouth wide are some of these types of symptoms. The diagnostic methods and tools that the dentist has at hand are generally clinical examinations, radiographs, vitality tests,  and in rare instances cavitations scanners as well as toxicity tests.  Many times, the standard tools are just sufficient and a treatment can be outlined depending on the type of finding. However occasionally this is not the case and additional tools are needed to reach a final answer to the problem. One of these tools is Medical Thermal Imaging. This wonderful method can detect levels of inflammation that originate from the jaws and often indicate right or left, upper or lower jaw etc. It can then fill an important piece of the puzzle and put the dentist in the right direction. It acts as an adjunct in the diagnostic journey!

Thermal Images Munro Hall

In short the advantages are many and to mention a few below:

  • It is simple
  • It’s completely safe
  • There is no radiation involved
  • It is painless
  • It is relatively inexpensive
  • It is also ideal for preventative medicine (can be a good adjunct to the use of CBCT scan in dentistry if the CBCT scan result is not conclusive)
  • It is ideal for early health screening

The procedure employs advanced and high tech infrared cameras paired with computer systems to detect heat emanating from the surface of the body.  This heat emanating from the surface is usually a result of blood flow under the control of the nervous system and the biochemical reactions that occur locally. The presentation of altered heat patterns in different areas  that appear differently to what is expected  from normal patterns is noted as an area to monitor. It could be an area that carry an inflammatory process or other irregularities.

Thermography does not replace MRI or CT imaging as it operates on a different basis. While CT scans and MRI scans can look for and find structural issues such as blocked arteries or tumours among other things, medical thermal imaging is used to assess functional problems deriving from chronic processes and dysfunctional tissues. The need for one type of imaging does not rule out the need for the other and both types may be necessary to complete the diagnosis. Depending on what it is that is being investigated however you may only need one type of screening whereby the doctor could be in a position to establish a diagnosis.

Neutrient Butterfat Keto – Distributed by Abundance and Health Ltd

Fuel Your Intermittent Fast, Ketogenic or Low Carb High Fat Diet With The World’s First C8 MCT Oil Powder Keto Creamer Featuring Heat Stable Gut Friendly Microbiome Spores Neutrient Butterfat Keto

Neutrient Butterfat Keto – Distributed by Abundance and Health Ltd

Neutrient Butterfat Keto is the easy way to bullet your morning coffee, making 16 hours or more of intermittent fasting a breeze. For anyone following a Keto, LCHF (Low carb, high fat diets) or IF (intermittent fasting) strategy this product is the tool you have all been waiting for. It has been formulated with a precise balance of nutrients to help keep you feeling full, focused and energized until mid-morning or lunch. This versatile and unique formulation is the first to combine C8 MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oil powder with grass-fed butter, organic ghee and heat resistant gut friendly microbiome spores and can also be used to make healthy keto snacks.

By dissolving just two scoops of this MCT and butter powder into your coffee, tea or smoothie, you can bulletproof your beverage to help curb cravings, distract you from hunger pangs and help you avoid unhealthy sugary or starchy snacks. When used as a part of a Ketogenic, Low Carb High Fat diet or during Intermittent Fasting the MTCs get converted into ketones and these can be used as a source of fuel when glucose is unavailable.

How does Butterfat Keto Work?

Unlike other fats, MCT gets burned for fuel rather than stored as fat. Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) bypass digestion and are rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, they head straight to the liver and get quickly converted into ketones, a powerful fuel for body and brain cells. Unlike other triglycerides, MCT gains rapid access into the mitochondria without the assistance of carnitine.

Is MCT the Same as Coconut Oil?

Coconut oil and MCT are quite different. Coconut oil is the cold pressed oil extracted from fresh coconuts and contains long chain triglycerides (LCT), which your body stores as fat, alongside medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and small amounts of omega 6 and omega 9. MCT oil is made by extracting the medium chain triglycerides from coconut oil. These fats are unique because they get burned for fuel, rather than stored as fat, making them ideal for supporting different types of low carb weight loss strategies. There are four types of MCT - C6, C8, C10 and C12 – all naturally present in coconut oil. It’s C8 which is the most effective fuel for fat burning.

MCT Powder vs MCT Oil

There are many benefits to using an MCT powder over an MCT oil. Some people experience digestive discomfort when using an MCT oil, especially at high doses. This is much less likely to happen with MCT powder which delivers the MCT into the digestive system in a much gentler way. If you try adding MCT oil to a hot or cold drink, you’ll discover that it floats, forming an oil slick which leaves your lips feeling greasy. MCT powder however completely dissolves and creates a delicious creamy luxurious mouthfeel with no greasy after-effects.

Heat Stable Microbiome Spores

Butterfat Keto contains prebiotic fibre and heat stable Bacillus coagulans and Bacillus subtilis microbiome spores which survive digestion and are stable in hot drinks. Studies indicate that supporting your balance of healthy gut bacteria helps keep you regular and may also support weight loss.

Ayurvedic Medicine – Most Ancient System of Medicine Known to Mankind

When diet is wrong medicine is of no use.
When diet is correct medicine is of no need.

– Ayurvedic Proverb

Ayurvedic Medicine is the most ancient system of medicine known to mankind.  It emerged within the Vedic culture that arose on the foothills of Himalayas and along the banks of the great rivers of India. It is based on the Vedic wisdom expounded by the ancient sages.  Ayurveda is a science-based healthcare approach that treats illness and promotes wellness by focusing assessment on biochemically-unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore psychological, physiological and structural imbalances.

There has been a worldwide surge of interest in Ayurvedic medicine as people seek health and well-being.  Ayurvedic medicine not only recognises the uniqueness of the individual but also the oneness of all creation and how this translates into human health on all levels. The basic principles upon which Ayurvedic medicine/healthcare operates are:

Ayurvedic Medicine – Most Ancient System of Medicine Known to Mankind

  • Biochemical individuality based on genetic and environmental uniqueness
  • Dynamic balance of internal and external factors
  • Web-like interconnections of psycho-physiological processes
  • Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease
  • Promotion of organ reserve through psycho-neuro-immunological processes
  • Patient-centred rather than disease focused healthcare

Using these principles, Ayurvedic healthcare practitioners focus on understanding the fundamental physiological processes, the environmental inputs, and the genetic predisposition that influence every person’s experience of health and disease.  A person is considered an integral part of the Universe which is governed by natural laws. Ayurveda works primarily on human constitution called Dosha and Prakruti through lifestyle counselling, herbal preparations, nutrition, massage, yoga and Panchakarma all used to bring about balance and harmony in the body.

The College of Ayurveda is the premier educator for individuals seeking to make a difference in the world through a career restoring the natural balance of body, mind and spirit with the wisdom of Ayurveda.  This mission has been the central driving force of the College since its inception. The College of Ayurveda is the only institution in the UK that offers a complete Ayurvedic programme comparable in content to the B. A. M. S. (Bachelor of Ayurveda Medicine & Surgery) degree course taught in India.

The College aims to provide the most up-to-date and comprehensive Ayurvedic medical education. It promote the values of a tolerant and democratic society and the ideals of scholarship and the benefits of life-long education and training. It works to develop and support educational programmes and select a student body of such a size that every student has a quality and relevant educational experience, and provide students with clearly defined academic programmes, competent teaching, a caring and supportive academic structure and an attractive and facilitating environment.

Seaweed on the Brain

Food poverty in Western Europe is causing damage beyond obesity. Seaweed produced for nutrition is part of the solution. “Dietary scores for unhealthy items in wealthy countries remained among the worst in the world.”[1]

Ultra-high processed, high salt, sugar and fat content are becoming the staple diet, particularly of younger people. Food for children and convenience is often of low nutritional value and can be damaging or fortified with single nutrients to appease conscience. A maternal junk food diet is a particularly dangerous trap for the young, as it “causes changes in reward-processing in the offspring brain, such that they grow to prefer foods high in fat and sucrose.”[2] Impact is seen on memory, mood and cognition. Research shows nutritional gaps affect children’s learning, health and longer-term predisposition to obesity.[3]Adult trials on a high-fat diet showed concentration and speed of recall deteriorated whilst: “The speed of information processing, was also significantly impaired”.[4] To take control of personal health, attention to eating foods with better Omega 3:6 balance (an imbalance is linked to “cardiovascular disease, cancer, and inflammatory and autoimmune diseases”.[5]) and higher polyphenols is a good step - “evidence suggests polyphenols are involved in cellular signalling pathways that mediate inflammatory processes in the brain.”[6] Fish and berries are good sources, but high-quality seaweed is outstanding.

Supplements and fortifications may help, but unlike a wholefood do not do so comprehensively. The paper Consumption of seaweeds and the human brain[7]gives a detailed breakdown of nutrients. “The emphasis is on a varied diet including macroalgae and the gut/microbe/brain axis, the importance of polyunsaturated fatty acids, and the impacts of anti-oxidant activities in neuroprotection.” [7]

Seagreens Food Capsules

Why Include Nutritious Seaweed in a Varied Diet?

Already a source of Omega 3 & 6 and high polyphenols, the answer lies in balance. Simon Ranger of Seagreens® Seaweed Health Foundation says: “our native wild wrack seaweeds can provide the micronutrients, including all the minerals and trace elements in a complete food.”[8]  Breadth is important. In Your Brain on Food, Brenda Patoine quotes “Nutrients in isolation may not be as effective as when they are interacting with other nutrients in whole foods.” … ”advice for a brain-healthy diet boils down to consuming a variety of natural foods that have undergone the fewest alterations.”[6]

Not all seaweed’s equal. Seaweed certified by the Biodynamic Association to Nutritious Food Seaweed standard assures a nutritional profile backed by analysis. As Consumption of seaweeds and the human brain recommends: “Seaweeds produced under controlled conditions offer boundless opportunities to satisfy the known requirements for brain health.” [7] Seagreens® are an ideal means to get a gram a day in the diet.

June Sayer – Complementary Treatments and Courses

Tennis, football, cricket and other sports receive a lot of television coverage during the summer months.  People who participate in sporting activities of any sort can be prone to suffer with aches, pains, sprains and other injuries.  In acute situations administering homeopathic remedies, that can be purchased from local health stores, can help speed up healing and reduce the recovery time.  Should a more serious injury occur, such as a broken bone and hospital intervention is required, homeopathic remedies will, once again, play a useful part in speeding up the healing process.  In order to attain and maintain optimum fitness, it is important to have a well-balanced diet.

June Sayer – Complementary Treatments and Courses

During lockdown I revised the way my practice operated.  I was grateful that technology such as Zoom, Skype, Facetime, etc., gave me the opportunity to continue consultations with my clients ensuring that their homeopathic and/or nutritional programmes were supported.  Due to the success of online consultations, I am continuing to offer this method to all clients. Homeopathy can help a wide range of ailments and in time of acute illness the remedies can reduce the symptoms often negating the need to visit the doctor.  Homeopaths, unless medically qualified, do not diagnose health conditions.   They are trained to choose a homeopathic remedy that closely matches the symptoms presented by the person suffering, after all whilst there may be similarities in some ailments, it is the unusual symptom that can be the key to the most appropriate homeopathic remedy. 

The Homeopathy at Home course that I offer on-line is designed to help you learn how to select homeopathic remedies that will address minor ailments such as coughs, colds, headaches and sore throats.  Some over-the-counter medications may advise you not to operate machinery or that the medicine could cause drowsiness.  Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, non-addictive and safe for all ages. 

The Homeopathic Practitioner Diploma course, again currently being offered on-line is an in-depth apprenticeship style course spread over three years.  This course will teach you the background history of homeopathy and its philosophy; how you can work with acute cases and then develop a greater understanding of more chronic cases and preparing a case protocol.  Anatomy and physiology, pathology and disease are also covered. Self-study and written assignments are essential to the course and upon successful completion of all the necessary criteria you will be entitled to register as a homeopathic practitioner with a registering organization and build your career as a homeopath.  From a nutritional perspective, I am a NutriClean and Gut Transformation Practitioner able to support you through either or both of these specialized nutritional programmes.   All supplementation is included in the price of these programmes. The Reiki courses that I offer will be available in-house at my practice in Burnham-on-Crouch once the government restrictions are removed.  These courses are Reiki level 1, Shoden, Reiki Level 2, Okuden and Reiki Master/Teacher.  All Reiki courses come complete with a comprehensive manual.

New Medical Study: Successful Treatment of Chronic Pain with Bioresonance according to Paul Schmidt

Rayonex Biomedical GmbH is headquartered in Lennestadt, Germany. It is a well-established medical device company that started over 35 years ago and currently operates in 45 countries around the world. 

Rayonex represents Bioresonance according to Paul Schmidt, a cause-oriented treatment approach, that is named after the company founder and engineer Paul Schmidt. Rayonex Biomedical GmbH is certified to develop, produce and distribute medical devices according to DIN EN ISO 13485:2016 and is audited and certified on a yearly basis.

Rayonex manufactures two medical devices: the high-end medical device, the Rayocomp PS 1000 polar 4.0 med., which can be used as a stationary device in a clinic setting, and the portable Rayocomp PS 10 med., which is primarily for patients receiving therapy at home. Due to the regulatory requirements for active medical devices, which applies to both of the Rayonex Rayocomp devices, a clinical evaluation must be carried out to prove the safety and effectiveness of the device. 

PS 1000 Polar +Clinical Trial + Waves of Success + 3rd World Conference Banner

To this end, Rayonex Biomedical GmbH recently successfully completed a new clinical prospective, double-blind, randomized and placebo-controlled study on the Cervical Spine Syndrome. In total, 52 patients participated in the study. All study participants received 10 treatment sessions with a compact program within a period of 70 days. This scientific study proves to patients and therapists alike that bioresonance according to Paul Schmidt is both safe and effective to use.

The new study is the highest accolade the company has received in its 38 years of history and a great confirmation of our work so far. And for people who are new to the Rayonex system, the study now guarantees that Bioresonance According to Paul Schmidt is a proven, effective and safe method at the highest scientific level.
We believe that the study will help to increase the acceptance of Bioresonance according to Paul Schmidt in the established medical field, which so far has neither accepted nor recognized the effect of bioenergetic vibrations to date.

A hardcopy of the study booklet entitled “Successful Treatment of Chronic Pain” can be obtained by contacting Rayonex Biomedical UK Ldt.

You can also access an electronic copy of the study by following this link: Book-Study: Successful Treatment of Chronic Pain

For more information about the range of our products, please follow this link to our latest leaflet: Waves of Success

Rayonex Biomedical GmbH hosted their 3rd World Congress with the title "Successful Treatment of Chronic Pain", on the 25th of April 2021. You can catch up on this special event with video links and pdf downloadable files at https://www.rayonex.de/world-congress

Understanding the Human Foot – An Illustrated Guide to Form and Function for Practitioners

by James Earls MSc

Published by Lotus Publishing. 2021. Paperback. £21.99/ $29.95. ISBN: 978 1 913088 26 2

 

An essential resource for bodyworkers, physical therapists, and sports medicine practitioners – a vital guide to understanding the anatomy, form, and mechanics of the human foot.

Understanding the Human Foot – An Illustrated Guide to Form and Function for Practitioners

Understanding the Human Foot is a full-colour, up-to-date overview of the structure and function of the foot, written for physical therapists and movement practitioners looking to deepen their understanding of holistic anatomy. Readers will gain perspective on the impacts of foot shape; the interdependence of form and function; and the cellular processes that determine how our tissue is designed. Most importantly, author James Earls demonstrates how the foot relates to and interacts with the rest of the body during movement, laying the groundwork for a comprehensive holistic approach to assessing, troubleshooting, and addressing functional and structural foot issues.

Starting with big-picture questions – what is a foot, and what is it used for? How does it work, both on its own and as part of a whole? – before zeroing in on the 26 bones, 33 joints, and many muscles that make up the foot, Earls teaches anatomy the way he wishes he’d been taught 30 years ago: with a holistic emphasis on interrelated systems, real-life applications, and approachable, easy-to-understand language. He shares:

  • Full-colour illustrations for easy reference and comprehensive understanding;
  • An overview of the bones, ligaments, and extrinsic and intrinsic muscles of the foot;
  • How your gait impacts the rest of the body – and can cause problems as high up as the neck and shoulders;
  • How to assess structural problems of the foot;
  • Corrective exercises;
  • A footwear guide to choosing the best shoe for your foot type.

About the Author

James Earls MSc is a writer, lecturer, and bodywork practitioner specializing in functional movement and structural integration. He is the director of Born to Move, an education platform teaching real-life anatomy for movement and manual therapists, and he is popular presenter at conferences and workshops around the world. Earls is the co-author, with Thomas Myers, of Fascial Release for Structural Balance and Born to Walk. He also writes regularly for professional magazines and journals, and has collaborated with many authors in the production of their titles.
