Root Cause Analysis

Root Cause Analysis - the 6 root causes of all Symptoms

Know why you have symptoms and unlock your body’s natural healing intelligence. 

We’ve all have experienced fear and confusion about what’s really causing our symptoms. We worry and want to know WHY we have chronic illnesses such as back pain, eczema, IBS, high blood pressure, asthma.  The root cause analysis approach will introduce you to a revolutionary health paradigm, to help you understand your stress triggers and how your organ tissue reacts to your stressors and importantly how to stop the triggers and improve your symptoms. 

Root cause analysis  is a concise analytical framework that gives comprehensive and specific information as to why you experience specific health issues and indicates what you need to do to resolve them.  At its core is the principle that your body (and everything in nature) has innate intelligence and never makes a mistake.  It is based on decades of (continuing) research by practitioners and medical doctors.  It looks at physical, emotional, mental, social, environmental and spiritual health issues as fully and completely interconnected.

About Lymphedema

Lymphedema affects the lymphatic system. This system has three main functions:

  • Draining excess tissue fluid: It balances the fluid in the blood and the fluid in the tissues. This is known as fluid homeostasis.
  • Fighting infection: It provides immunity by assisting the body’s immune defense against foreign bodies, such as bacteria.
  • Absorbing fats: It absorbs lipid nutrients from the intestine and transports them to the blood.

A disruption to the lymphatic system can, in the long term, undermine its ability to drain fluid properly. As a result, excess fluid can build up in parts of the body.

Lymphedema increases the risk of infection and other complications because the lymphocytes cannot reach parts of the body where swelling occurs.

Top Tips to fight Lymphedema

  1. Exercise
  2. Avoid sun beds, steam rooms, and saunas.
  3. Build strength 
  4. Eat healthily 

How we can help you

For pregnancy and postnatal care

For pregnant and lactating women,  gives comfort especially in legs and feet when fluid retention strikes. MLD also helps breast feeding relieving  the problems of blocked ducts and sore tight breasts.

After cancer surgery 

Lymphatic treatment is often required after cancer treatment and when the lymph nodes have been removed. Having lymph nodes removed can cause some long term side effects. Lymph nodes drain fluid from your arms and legs. If the surgeon removes the lymph nodes, fluid can build up and cause swelling in your arms or legs. This is called lymphoedema.

For healing

Reducing pain and discomfort post surgery or injury.  Decongesting the swollen and sore tissues through therapy, pain and discomfort would be reduced.

Trauma

Trauma

Suffering from a the effects of a traumatic event? Or a traumatic childhood? Or PTSD? This can help.

trauma

Are you experiencing one of the following symptoms?

There are many different reasons for unprocessed or unresolved trauma

The limbic system in our brain is hardwired to assess everything as a risk unless proved otherwise; Our mind is an amazing survival tool! It is equipped to help us survive even in the most extreme situations. People often underestimate the severity of a traumatic event they have experienced, but once the mind has experienced a trauma it works very hard to ensure you don’t have another similar experience. Sometimes even a event which is only a small part (sense) of the original trauma, will trigger your mind and body to react. For example, an isolated smell, sound or a feeling.  Like sitting in the park on a summer’s day without a care in the world (seemingly) and a panic attack ensues. Why would that happen? Well, the brain and body takes in 11 million bits of information every second. Its job is to pattern match everything (sight, sound, sense, taste, smell and hearing) and to alert your sympathetic system if it recognises something which maybe similar to a trauma that you’ve experienced previously (even decades ago). And no matter how severe the trauma is (being unexpectedly physically attacked for example) or how small it seems (Teacher humiliating you if front of your peers) the brain will process the trauma in the same way. 

To keep you from experiencing that trauma again your mind will create thoughts such as “I don’t like this” (low level) to feelings both physical (can’t breathe or trembling) and bodily (panic, trapped etc) (high level) or even abreaction (reliving the experience) so have no option other than to flee or to fight!

Top Tips to fight Trauma responses

  1. Be aware that changes can be made, that you don’t have to be trapped in this mindset forever. Trauma is not a life sentence 
  2. Find your ‘tribe’. No one can understand what it is you are going through and this means feeling isolated and alone which makes your life seem far worse. Connecting with people that support you, don’t judge, criticise or dismiss your feelings and opinions is essential
  3. Resist self soothing behaviours that is detrimental to your health. Alcohol, drugs and self harm are some of the behaviours that help dull the pain but, of course, bring about other problems and issues which means you’ll have more to deal with.
  4. Find an experienced therapist you can work with. Trauma and PTSD can be overcome however you will need help to make the changes in the brain which will process and /or reframe the way the brain is holding the trauma experience. Most importantly find one you feel that you can trust, work with. A therapist that makes you feel you can build rapport with. Ask for a free consultation before considering working with therapist and trust your intuition.

What EFT is and how it works​

Emotional Freedom Technique

Definition:

Emotional Freedom Techniques or EFT is a relatively new discovery based on ancient healing principals over 5,000 years ago, from the ancient Chinese Shoalin and Taoist monasteries.

The Eastern healing arts of acupuncture, acupressure, shiatsu massage and reflexology, amongst others, were derived from the energy maps established by these early healers.

The EFT process also draws important influence, especially for deep emotional and psychological issues, from the many people who have contributed over the ages to the understanding of human psychology.

TFT was founded by the psychologist Dr Roger Callahan in 1979. Dr Callahan was a trained traditional psychologist who used many traditional techniques to work with his clients. One of Callahan’s stdents simplified the TFT process; Gary Craig developed Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).  In 1995 he released his own tapping techniques which involved tapping all the meridians in sequence… without concern for the order. He added the reminder phrase, spoken at each tapping point

Recent studies and MRI images have shown  actual changes in the  brain  proving how effective EFT is in making permanent changes in the way we think and feel. EFT is very effective in providing fast pain relief  and being rid of tinnitus too.
