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

The aim is to encourage the lymph fluid to move away from the swollen area, so it can drain normally. It also helps lymph fluid drain through the healthy lymph vessels. This helps control swelling.

Fluent compression strokes provide a gentle, consistent wave-like massage to the treated areas, increasing circulation and helping remove waste and toxins from the body whilst promoting a sense of calm and relaxation.

Lymphatic drainage should be offered by a qualified practitioners only. 

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.

Suffering from pregnancy related issues? This can help.

pregnancy

Are you experiencing one of the following symptoms?

There are many different causes for pregnancy related symptoms

There are a few common discomforts associated with pregnancy. Your centre of gravity changes as you grow through through your pregnancy putting additional stress on your shoulders, back, hips and abdominal muscles. Sciatic nerve pain is often commonly experienced by many women in late pregnancy as the uterus rests on muscles of the pelvic floor and lower back.

Ligaments relax and your pelvic joints become less stable, pulling your pelvis forward, resulting in lower back pain and sometimes pelvic instability, otherwise known as SPD.

Swelling is caused by your body holding more water than usual when you’re pregnant. Throughout the day the extra water tends to gather in the lowest parts of the body, especially if the weather is hot or you have been standing a lot. The pressure of your growing womb can also affect the blood flow in your legs. This can cause fluid to build up in your legs, ankles and feet.

 

Top Tips to keep healthy in pregnancy

  1. Avoid standing for long periods. 
  2. Get enough rest, particularly later in pregnancy
  3. Eat well, avoid alcohol, drink plenty of water take regular walks.   
  4. Book regular pregnancy treatments.

Worried it May Never Happen for You? Need to Know You Have Done Everything You Can? This can help.

wanting-a-child

Are you experiencing one of the following symptoms?

There are many different causes for unexplained infertility

The reproduction system is a finely balanced system much like the rest of your body; when are under pressure, feel anxiety or are concerned we produce hormones which counteract the reproductive hormones. When we are feeling pressure our pituitary and adrenal glands produce adrenaline and cortisol in preparation for fight or flight. If the pressure doesn’t pass within a short time we continue to produce these chemicals and long periods of these chemicals cause problems elsewhere in the body. In relation to fertility this alarm reaction engages both the hypothalamus and the pituitary glands which causes disruption with hormonal balancing required for the reproductive system.
When the subconscious detects a stressful situation it sets of the alarm system, the Hypothalamus reacts immediately by sending messages to the pituitary gland and the adrenal glands, these glands send the stress hormones to prepare the body for fight or flight (Sympathetic Nervous System), shutting down non critical functions including reproductive systems. On going stress (and production of stress hormones) disrupts the activity of progesterone, inhibit implantation of the fertilised egg and prevent ovulation thinning of the uterine wall lining. In addition, the chemical imbalances also serve to decrease the sex drive in both males and females.

The work that do we together will decrease the stress hormones which in turn allows the reproduction hormones to be produced restoring balance to the reproductive system.

Reproreflexology works in a subtle way on a physical and emotional level and is especially beneficial for those experiencing fertility issues. Reflexology can be particularly beneficial in the time leading up to egg collection and embryo transfer. Treatment sessions will encourage relaxation and alleviate anxiety, helping to reduce stress hormones, which may improve your chances of success. Around four to six sessions is recommended.

Top Tips to fight Infertility

  1. Stress and anxiety contribute significantly to fertility issues. Find ways to lower your stress levels. 
  2. Be aware that in 50% of fertility cases men’s issues are the reason. Some times both the male and female can have problems at the same time. 
  3. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, drugs and stop smoking. 
  4. Maybe get a medication review to find out if your medication may affect your fertility.
  5. Eat a healthy balanced diet. If you are overweight, losing weight can help.

Are you experiencing one of the following symptoms?

There are different reasons for being over weight

Struggling to lose weight? Cant seem to stick to a healthy eating regime? You probably know what to do to lose weight but something is stopping you from either moving towards to your goal or sticking with your plan to lose weight. Nowadays there is so much information and education about healthy eating, calories, carbs, exercise etc. It’s not that we don’t what we should do to eat healthily and lose weight. It’s more about the subconscious drive to comfort eat. Feeling not good enough, overwhelmed, fearful, lonely or anxious are just a few of the powerful emotions which drive us to self sooth.  Food can help us feel better almost immediately. We get a huge dopamine hit but it’s short lived an temporary. So we self sooth more and more often to feel better. Sometimes we aren’t aware consciously what we are feeling deep down. 

Top Tips to fight comfort eating

  1. Recognise the triggers. Keep a dairy to help you understand what is happening when you need to eat.
  2. Find an alternative way to met your emotional needs. 
  3. Treat yourself in ways that doesn’t involve food. A new book, a candle lit bath or  a nice walk.
  4. Practice sitting with uncomfortable emotions. Acknowledge them instead of distracting or dismissing.
  5. Book some sessions with one of our qualified and experienced therapists.

Confidence & Self-Esteem

Low self esteem? Lacking in confidence? This can help.

confidence-self-esteem

Are you experiencing one of the following symptoms?

There are many different reasons for low self esteem and/or lack of confidence

Real Self Confidence and Esteem is based in emotion, not a self image.
To build self confidence and overcome low self esteem is to change how we feel emotionally about ourselves. To change our emotion requires changing two different core beliefs about self image. The first core belief is obvious. It is the belief that we are not good enough. It may have a more specific association to how we look, how smart we are, money, or lack of confidence sexually. The second core belief to change is the image of success that we feel we should be. Changing this belief is contrary to logic, but is a must if we are to overcome insecurity and raise our self esteem.

You would be amazed at the number of people that have a problem with low self-esteem or a lack of confidence. However, just imagine how it would be to live your life feeling confident in who you are and in your abilities.  Just think of all the things you could achieve if you had that self-esteem and felt as confident as you imagine other people to feel. 

Top Tips to fight lack of confidence and self esteem

  1. Challenge your limiting beliefs .
  2. Do things that take you outside your comfort zone
  3. Surround yourself with positive people.
  4. Stop putting yourself down.
  5. Heal your past, book some sessions with one of our skilled therapists.

Feeling stuck & unfulfilled

feeling-stuck-unfulfilled

Feeling stuck & unfulfilled

Feeling stuck? This can help.

feeling-stuck-unfulfilled

Are you experiencing one of the following symptoms?

There are many different reasons for feeling stuck

It is useful to consider what may be holding you back from taking opportunities. Is is fear? Fear of failure? Fear of succeeding? Fear of loss perhaps? Is it that your are with the wrong tribe? People you may like but do not inspire you, share your interests, challenge you and admire you. 

Maybe your boring unfulfilling job is safe because you know it inside out and changing jobs may feel scary. Maybe your calling is something more creative but you’ve been held back by others’ believes about a ‘proper job’. Perhaps you’ve settled for a mediocre but safe relationship, feeling like you don’t deserve any better. 

In whatever way you feel stuck, unfulfilled or bored it will be perception. Your perception. But ask yourself why this is.  As suggested it is about fear. Our mind doesn’t like change especially if change involves the unfamiliar. Uncertainty feels scary, uncomfortable and stressful. So staying stuck, although unfulfilling, feels the safer option.

Top Tips to fight being stuck

  1. Look for a change of environment.
  2. Try a few new activities; don’t settle on any one until you feel excited and challenged.  
  3. Get out and meet new people. The more you meet the more opportunities will come your way.
  4. Accept you are stuck. Take responsibility for you. Know that you need to make changes. Don’t run away however. Move on. Grow.
  5. Book some sessions with one of our experienced therapists.

How we can help you

We can help you to over come issues which are holding you back and will help you to become the person you want to be and live the life you want to.
