Now that Calgary is in full-cleanup mode following the flood of a century we would like to offer support in providing information on ways to keep your family healthy post-flood.

Calgary Post flood health

Issues of concern specifically are mosquitos and mold.

We all know the mosquitos were bad to begin with early this season, and now with excessive water levels and water damage those squiters are going to be large and in charge.

Calgary mosquitosHere are a couple natural ways to fend off those pesky biters.

 

  1. Essential Oils – Citronella, lemon, sandalwood, apply to either clothing and/or skin in diluted liquid form, or burn a citronella, lemon or sandalwood candle near where you are sitting.

 

  1. Vitamin B  – Patches and supplementation

 

Vitamin B metabolizes the body which reduces human odors. It’s the way we smell that attracts insects so when we reduce our human odor with Vitamin B and essential oils the mosquitos stay at bay.

Patches can be purchased (we have them at Docere Wellness Centre for $10.95). You simply apply them directly to your skin an hour or two before going outside and you can leave it on all day. Not only will you keep bugs away you will benefit from more vitamin B in your body.

If the mosquito gets the best of you there are a number of natural ways to treat the bite, here are five we like:

  1. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar – apply a small amount to bite
  2. Aloe Vera – a very cool and soothing remedy. Helps ease the itch and heal the bite
  3. Essential Oils – tea tree oil, rosemary, neem, lavender, witch hazel or cedar oil –dilute a small amount with water and dab on bite
  4. Salt Paste – mix himilayan rock salt with water and mix into a paste. Apply to affected area
  5. Lemon Juice – helps to calm the itch and prevent infection

Now let’s talk about MOLD! Ick!

It’s green, or black, and fuzzy, and it’s no one’s friend. Especially if you are allergic to it!

With water damage in many homes it’s likely mold will develop until restoration can be underway.

Mold allergies

In the meantime there are naturally remedies for allergy support with mold.

There are homeopathic treatments available for mold allergies as well at acupressure and acupuncture allergy elimination techniques.  NAET is one technique Dr. Meghji practices at Docere Wellness Centre.

Visit our website or NAET Canada for information on NAET.

Mold Allergies

Up your Vitamin D dosage. Spend time outside in the sun. Vitamin D has been found to reduce the production of protein response in the body to mold as well as increase production of proteins that promote tolerance to it.

Spring is in the air; and so are seasonal allergies

It’s a beautiful time of year when the snow begins to melt off, the grass starts to turn green and the trees bud with leaves. For many this beauty is offset by an array of allergies that accompany the season.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to fully enjoy what spring has to offer?

Allergies

NAET Allergy Elimination Technique is a method we use to treat clients with allergies, often resulting in the elimination of clients’ allergies.

An allergy is apparent when a person has an abnormal sensitivity to one or more substances, over and above what affects the average person.

NAET is an innovative, natural solution to eliminate a person’s allergies, of any type, including the common allergies that accompany the spring season!

NAET

The NAET Allergy Elimination Technique was created by Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad in November of 1983.

It is a non-invasive, natural, drug free, approach to alleviate allergies of all types and intensities, and is appropriate for any age.

It involves principles from energy medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic, kinesiology, nutritional and homeopathic medicine. Acupressure is used on children or on those who are uncomfortable with needles.

What else can NAET help treat?

Studies have shown that early signs of autism can be related to allergies. Allergy related autism in children is prevalent and often goes un-diagnosed.

Karyn Seroussi is the author of Unraveling the Mystery of Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder: A Mother’s Story of Research and Recovery (Simon & Schuster 2000, Broadway Books, 2002), and she shares her story on the Autism Network for Dietary Intervention, of her son’s diagnosis and how it was resolved by addressing his allergies to dairy.

NAET is an extremely effective treatment method that can be applied to cases of allergy related autism.

“NAET® treatment can eliminate autism that was triggered by vaccines, drugs, foods, environmental factors, chemical toxins (including carpet cleaning chemicals, pesticides, and toxins from heavy metal), and toxins from bacterial, viral, and parasitic infestations,” as discussed on www.naet.com.
