Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer 

 

In January 2009 I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer and was scheduled for a full mastectomy with partial lymph removal. I weighed 36kg after losing around 20kg over the previous year, although I had been eating well. During this time, I had been becoming increasingly tired, until in October I was unable to get out of bed for 4 weeks and was only having fluids. Initial blood tests indicated a severe infection of some kind, which was treated with antibiotics. After two weeks there was still no improvement and other tests were scheduled leading to the discovery of a malignant mass.

The medical doctors told me that I was too weak for chemotherapy and medical interventions and i was told to go home and get my affairs sorted out as I was given only 3-6 months to live. Of course horrified i didn’t believe that .

My daughter had been seeing Dr Jason and I was keen to do something as i didn’t believe my doctors prognosis.

Dr Jas recommended Dietary changes, an alkaline diet along with other Blood type specific recommendations and Natural medications . Within a week I was feeling like my body was responding and since then its has now been over 2 years and show no signs of slowing down. I go to church and am living well into 70`s

Thanks Dr Jason

Japanese Kiko Style Acupuncture

Kiiko Style Acupuncture
Kiiko Style acupuncture utilizes a systematic, easy , palpatory method which is designed
to provide instant feedback. When using this system, a Kiiko Style practitioner follows a palpation
sequence which, both establishes a diagnosis and suggests several treatment options which might be
effective for treating a particular patient.

2) Kiiko Style acupuncture is largely defined by its use of a highly systematized method of palpation.
Palpation is the ability to gain information through touch. This method evolved to an extraordinary level
of sophistication in Japanese acupuncture for a very unusual reason. Since as early as the Edo Period
(1602-1868) Japanese acupuncture was a profession practiced largely by the blind. This fact carries
through to the present day in that one of the primary influences in the development of Kiiko Style
acupuncture comes from Master Nagano
who is a blind acupuncturist. Once learned, palpation
becomes an easy to use method for obtaining instant feedback as to the patient’s condition of health.
The diagnosis and treatment strategies follow one another in one circular motion. Specific active
reflexes suggest the diagnosis and the treatment efficacy be established by changes in the same
reflexes.

3) Kiiko’s Style addresses the patient’s health issues from several levels. By looking more deeply into
the structural and or constitutional imbalances, which often underlie a patient’s symptomatic
complaints, the practitioner is able to assist in a more complete and lasting healing. It is precisely this
holistic approach which gives a Kiiko Style acupuncturist the ability to help patients with the
most complex issues
. Often by seeing the patient’s problem from this broader perspective, the
practitioner can solve difficult cases.

4) The practitioner using Kiiko Style acupuncture is part of a living tradition. The teachings of this
system come directly from first-hand experience gained from some of Japan’s greatest acupuncturists.
Kiiko Matsumoto, whose clinical experience spans more than thirty-five years, still continues her
education by traveling at least twice a year to Japan to study with their masters. Because of this
continual exposure to innovative treatment techniques and new clinical insights, Kiiko Style
acupuncture continuously develops methods designed to achieve the maximum results when treating a
patient. A living system of acupuncture must by definition reflect the changing needs of the time in
which it is practiced and incorporate the technological improvements at it’s disposal. A living system is
also continuously learning and deepening its understanding to provide a more complete treatment
strategy and clinical results. The diagnostic and treatment methods being taught in this system
accurately represent the clinical experience of some of Japan’s most respected master
acupuncturists
.

5) The eclectic nature of Kiiko Style of acupuncture give the practitioner a wide number of viable
options from which to choose to create an effective treatment plan which addresses the individual
needs of each patient. This style of acupuncture is imminently suited to the diverse needs of
our patient population

Longevity By Jason Mallia PhD

Longevity Love and other stuff! by Dr Jason Mallia IMD PhD Naturopath and Integrative Medicine

Longevity is a term thrown around to describe the length of time a person may life in their lifetime . What it does not describe is the state of wellness a person may have on this process . Now , the question is, would we still  be want a long life or longevity with ill health? , ,most would probably say NO , what do you say ??? In my experience as a clinician and a student of life  feel that there are several important factors that increase our life span and potential for wellness in this time , a popular book called  the blue Zone decribes some of these.

They include things such as:

A diet rich in Phytonutrients

Red Wine

diet rich in Omega 3 from fish

a daily spiritual practice such as going to church

community and a social network .

Im my day to day practice what I see that is often deficient is the need for a Life purpose, a Passion  and Love .People often come in with health conditions related to stress that is connected to these things . I ask many people do you love your job? and many respond with the answer no way its just a JOB and “thats why im here my job is stressing me” !. At this point we have the discussion about what job would you rather be doing and why are you not doing it ? After some time re-evalauting many come to the realisation that they need to follow their passion rather than just an income in their job .

The other area is the feild of LOVE, I often see diffuculty in this area or lack or this in their life weather it be in their job or in their relationships . I see many people with poor or broken relationships that is in turn starts affecting their health . When they have love in their life they seem to have a purpose and direction and rarely are unwell , when  love is non-existant  certain conditions arise causing ill health .

So when we think of health Wellness and longevity , ask your self what aspect of longevity is needing attention and start spreading the LOVE !

Stressed, tired and fatigued, sleep not fixing it ? you may need a holiday!

Many people now days suffers from stress, tiredness and fatigue and can not seem to break the cycle.

There are many known causes including , past viral infections, toxicity, emotional stress and simply just overwork !

In most cases rest , a change of diet or herbal meds can improve a condition, but many people don’t realise how important taking time out is .

As clinician I burnt out early as a result of working too many days and not taking enough time for me , now days I have a balanced work /life ethic to offset this happening .

For some to get back on track it is required to take a month or two off work and get away to ensure stresses are minimised . I often recommend patients take a well earned holiday .

To ensure you get the most out of your holiday I recommend the following:

  • take a break to somewhere relaxing , rather than a faced paced have to do holiday . Somewhere tropical is ideal
  • Ensure where you go has nature and fresh air to help you rejuvenate your cells from the negative ions
  • avoid too much alcohol and coffee
  • take a siesta every day to catch up on sleep
  • book yourself in for a yoga or massage session
  • take walks and exercise daily in the forest or  by the sea
  • drink plenty of water .
  • Do not take work things with you such as reading and other work related items !
  • enjoy yourself and relax as much as possible
  • try and avoid using an itinerary this will only make you feel regimented like your daily life
  • Practice some kind of spiritual activity , meditation, praying or other

 

My recommendation is that people take small regular breaks rather that 1 large break when all else has failed this will ensure you recharge regularly . For those on a budget try doing day trips to the sea , or blue mountains , if you can stay the night this is recommended .

And remember don’t forget take your supplements with you!

Feeling Tired and Flat as a result of the change in Weather?

Many people complain of feeling flat when the weather cools down . In Summer  due to the warmth your Qi (or energy) and Blood move around the body freely keeping you energised and healthy .However when the cold kicks in if a person has an underlying cold condition they may suffer as a result of stagnation of ther Qi and Blood . Symptoms may include , feeling flat , tiredness, acheing  joints, depression and other  . As a result many also dont get outside to replenish their vitamin D levels and become vitamin D deficient. Recent research has shown a link between Low plasma vitamin D and Depression .

Some tips to keep well this winter

  1. Eat Warm Soups with Ginger (asian style soups)
  2. Drink Warm Water , herbal teas rather than coffee
  3. Avoid cold foods such as salads and fruit \
  4. do not eat straight from the fridge
  5. Exercise in the Sun
  6. DO Bikram Yoga or Thai Chi in a Warm room
