Conditions Successfully Treated

Acne

Acne can be worse for dairy products and sugar and I recommend a change of diet, supplemental Zinc, Essential Fatty Acids, such as Fish Oil and Evening Primrose Oil and a herbal formula. If the Acne is jaw line acne, treatment would also focus on balancing hormones.

Adrenal Depletion, Adrenal Exhaustion

Adrenal depletion, Adrenal Exhaustion also known as “burn out”  is the reduced capacity to cope with stress, usually brought on by the chronic effects of continued stress. Herbal medicine can restore the adrenal glands, along with Vitamin B, Magnesium and Vitamin C. You may also need immune support such as Echinacea.

I am usually a happy go lucky character in good health and fitness but after two deaths in our family followed by sudden redundancy my health declined and my stress levels were very high. I thought I was coming right but another massive tragic loss brought me to my knees. Some time after this I had blood tests at my GP who said nothing unusual showed. I was sceptical because I was feeling so tired and lethargic all the time and had no energy. I knew I had to call Lynne. I went to see Lynne who did a series of tests to see which tonics suited my body type best. Two weeks after my visit and on the recommended tonics I started to feel more energy. It has now been nearly two months since my initial visit and I have bounced back with a load more energy and motivation. Lynne is very professional and gifted and has time for people. I can strongly recommend her services and want to say a huge thank you for getting my health back on track ! —Alan, Auckland

Allergies

There are many symptoms of allergies. Some of these are digestive/stomach pain, bloating, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, eczema, rashes, asthma, mucous/congestion, sinusitis, hay fever, itchy nose/throat, headaches, migraines, hyperactivity, lack of concentration, poor sleep, fatigue, irritability, mouth ulcers, inability to lose weight, frequent infections eg tonsillitis, dark circles under the eyes

I went to see Lynne for both my son and me. My son had been suffering from chronic sinus problems, leading to a nasty cough and asthma-like symptoms.I had a rash that I was struggling to get rid of and didn’t know the cause of. We both did a hair allergy test and, through using herbal mixes from Lynne and reducing foods that we are intolerant to, we are both much better. Lynne is readily available and is very approachable. I am so thrilled to have found her! Tania, Auckland

Anxiety

I often treat Depression and Anxiety. If you are on medication, I work safely along side the medication and choose remedies such as Magnesium and homeopathic remedies and Bach Flowers. Bach Flowers are excellent and I muscle test these so you have a special blend that is unique to you.

A friend recommended us to Lynne Flood, Naturopath, and we have been very grateful for the referral! Lynne has given excellent nutritional advice and herbal support for chronic depression and hypoglycemia, which has made an enormous improvement. Prior to consulting Lynne, medical treatment had resulted in severe side effects resulting in hospitalization. It is very gratifying that support can be given to these conditions without using drugs with the attendant side effects. Thank you Lynne. We do not hesitate to recommend you to friends and acquaintances for their health issues. JH, Mt Albert

Arthritis

I have seen many cases of arthritis and each case is unique. I use QRA, Quantum Reflex Analysis techniques to determine the best treatment for you.

I went to visit Lynne because I have suffered from allergies for a long time. I had been tested for allergies by the doctor which showed the usual dust mites and pollens but it did not test for foods. Lynne suggested that I have a hair test. The hair test showed a number of foods that I was allergic to including potatoes and tomatoes (which I really like) and all types of dairy products.

Prior to visiting Lynne I found that the joints in my hands were often painful and swollen. I thought this was just from getting older and was probably arthritis as both my mother and aunt had the same problem. After removing the foods that Lynne suggested from my diet and taking supplements such as fish oil, I am amazed to find that the swelling in my fingers has just about disappeared.

I am really grateful to Lynne for the help that she provided. I am now a convert and I can recommend Lynne not only to people who have illnesses but also to those who are healthy and wish to remain that way.

Asthma

Asthma is likely to be triggered by food allergy. Clients are often sensitive to environmental substances such as mould or pollens but I find that once the diet is changed to avoid your food allergies, including preservatives such as Sulphur Dioxide, you will better tolerate mould, pollens or cold air etc. The QRA, Quantum Reflex Analysis techniques are useful to determine the right remedies to support your lungs.

“I was recommended to Lynne by a friend. My son had just come out of hospital after a febrile convulsion, was pale and had no appetite. His eczema and asthma had flared up. I had a hair test done for M to find out his allergies. After the hair test came back, we changed his diet and Lynne prescribed some natural remedies. The day care that he attends commented on what a change they had noticed in him and asked what we were doing differently! His health over the winter has been 100% better. Now, three months later, he is no longer a sickly baby but a healthy, happy little boy. Rose

Bladder infections, Urinary Tract Infections

Chronic bladder infections could be triggered by food allergy and there is likely to be candida overgrowth or bacterial infection. Appropriate treatment could be treatment of infection, whether bacterial or fungal, Probiotics and a urinary herbal formula.

Bloating

Bloating can be caused by wheat or gluten and made worse by candida and I recommend doing an allergy test and dietary changes as per your result. A herbal candida treatment and a Probiotic will have you feeling great.

I first went to Lynne Flood at Health Wise, feeling lethargic, bloated and gaining weight. After a consult Lynne hooked me up with the right products and eating better. I now feel energetic, my skin is great and what’s best is that I am losing weight naturally. You have made a world of difference for me. Thanks hugely. Rachael, Auckland.

I found Lynne very easy to relate to and she was able to help me with my health problems, discovering the types of food I shouldn’t eat, which in turn has enabled me to lose weight more easily and has also stopped my bloated feeling. I would highly recommend Lynne to anyone who needs help with overcoming health problems and maintaining good health. Janet Kerr, Director at Slip Prevention Specialists Ltd

Blood Sugar Problems – Hypoglycemia

If you crave sweets, are weak or irritable if a meal is missed, get dizzy when standing suddenly, get shaky or suffer from anxiety or nervousness, this may relate to low blood sugar or hypoglycemia. I will advise you to change your diet to include more complex carbohydrates and protein and reduce sugar or junk food and provide treatment such as chromium.

A friend recommended us to Lynne Flood, Naturopath, and we have been very grateful for the referral! Lynne has given excellent nutritional advice and herbal support for chronic depression and hypoglycemia, which has made an enormous improvement. Prior to consulting Lynne, medical treatment had resulted in severe side effects resulting in hospitalization. It is very gratifying that support can be given to these conditions without using drugs with the attendant side effects. Thank you Lynne. We do not hesitate to recommend you to friends and acquaintances for their health issues. JH, Mt Albert

Boils

I occasionally see cases of boils. These respond to dietary improvement, zinc and immune support such as Echinacea or immune/lymphatic formula and probiotics. You may need candida treatment.

Bronchiolitis

Bronchiolitis is ‘asthma in babies’ and is scary when it happens. Baby will respond very well to change of diet, if necessary doing an allergy test and herbal medicine.

K. was diagnosed with bronchiolitis. Advice from family members encouraged us to take him to a Naturopath. I took him to Lynne Flood. A hair analysis was carried out to identify what foods K. was allergic to. This enabled us to set an essential food plan up for him. This, together with the prescribed remedies, has given us peace of mind in knowing that we are helping K. at an early age on the path to a healthier wellbeing. Donna E

Bronchitis

Winter always sees a few cases of bronchitis and chest infections. If you seek help early, Bronchitis will respond well to herbal medicine.

Cancer, during Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy

Herbs are valuable during Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy, along with liver support, long term immune support, support for stress and high dose Antioxidants.

Candida

Candida is fungal overgrowth caused by antibiotics.  It causes many symptoms such as fatigue, foggy head, poor concentration, low mood, irritability and digestive problems such as diarrhea, nausea etc. Lynne Flood Naturopath is a Candida Specialist Auckland, often diagnosing candida. Naturopathic treatment of candida is an anti-candida diet, herbal medicine and Probiotics. I often use a herbal formula for energy and liver support too. Candida often underlies all other illness and causes a vast array of symptoms. After a candida treatment, clients report feeling much better.

I suffered with cysts in my armpits for two years. I had lost faith in doctors and their medicine as nothing worked. I have taken many antibiotics and they have left my body in worse condition. Lynne has helped me turn this around. After a session with Lynne my body began to repair better than ever. Her confidence in me is a strength I really needed. Depression was a major factor when I met Lynne. Physically and mentally I have bounced back. I was even scheduled for an operation and this has been cancelled! I have no idea how I would have coped without Lynne these last few months. I can only thank her for caring. She is my angel. T

Celiac Disease

Clients with Celiac Disease will benefit from my dietary advice on avoidance of gluten grains. Gluten grains are wheat, oats, rye, barley and malt and I can give you a gluten free diet and recipes. Gut healing may be needed, such as Glutamine or Slippery Elm. You may also be quite depleted and need extra nutrients that are readily absorbed. You could do well on herbal medicine to increase energy.

Chronic Diseases

Chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, joint disease and obesity are caused by inflammation. Inflammation is driven by toxins, infections including candida, allergies, nutritional deficiencies, poor glucose metabolism and of course, stress or emotional issues. I will identify and assess your underlying drivers of inflammation and formulate a treatment plan. You may need further testing such as an allergy test or heavy metals testing. You may also need conventional medical blood tests. By removing these drivers of inflammation, together, we can bring about substantial improvement or even cure difficult, chronic conditions that are unresponsive to medical treatment. I find that the QRA Quantum Reflex Analysis techniques are invaluable when dealing with the above chronic diseases.

Lynne has been treating me for about a year now for 2 conditions. I had been to doctors and specialists and had had no luck with a resolve for either, apart from surgery. I was introduced to Lynne by my mother who she had been treating her and I had seen a vast difference in health. Lynne is a very welcoming, honest and trustworthy person. She is very dedicated and passionate about her work and is comes through in her treatment; she follows up on your progress and has shown a great deal of dedication not just to me but my family and friends whom I have recommended her too. I am now clear of one of my conditions which my specialist had advised that I would require surgery for. I know that this may not be the outcome for all cases, but I wanted a natural treatment and Lynne has certainly led towards that. She is continuing treatment for my 2nd condition and although we are not quite there, there has been a huge difference. I highly recommend Lynne if you are looking for a natural treatment, as she is someone who will really research on your behalf and care! K

Chronic Fatigue

Chronic fatigue can be treated successfully but it will take time. It responds well to Minerals, B Vitamins, Magnesium and Herbal medicine. You are also likely to need immune support. Sometimes Fibromyalgia presents with Chronic Fatigue and I have various treatments for this.

Constipation and diarrhea

Constipation and diarrhea are common and might be diagnosed as Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In Irritable Bowel there is usually a bacterial and/or fungal infection and I recommend treatment of this infection, Nervine herbs or Magnesium for stress, Probiotics and avoidance of the foods to which you are allergic will give good results.

Coughs, Colds and Flu

Coughs, colds and flu respond well to a herbal formula. I also use Allicidin (garlic capsules) and find they work well in high doses for stubborn coughs such as Whooping Cough.

Crohn’s Disease

I have treated Crohn’s Disease by doing an allergy test to find out your sensitivities, as a first step, then initiating an individualised treatment, with good result.

Dark circles under the eyes

I often get asked about dark circles under the eyes. Usually the client will have other signs of allergy and I recommend an allergy test and treatment.

Depression

I often treat Depression and Anxiety. If the client is on medication, I work safely along side the medication and choose remedies such as Magnesium and homeopathic remedies. If the client is not on medication, I can use St John’s Wort or 5HTP, herbal formulas and Magnesium. Bach Flowers are excellent and I muscle test these so you have a special blend that is unique to you.

A friend recommended us to Lynne Flood, Naturopath, and we have been very grateful for the referral! Lynne has given excellent nutritional advice and herbal support for chronic depression and hypoglycemia, which has made an enormous improvement. Prior to consulting Lynne, medical treatment had resulted in severe side effects resulting in hospitalization. It is very gratifying that support can be given to these conditions without using drugs with the attendant side effects. Thank you Lynne. We do not hesitate to recommend you to friends and acquaintances for their health issues. JH, Mt Albert

Detoxification of Heavy Metals

Detoxification is vitally important. By eliminated stored toxins through a detox, you will reduce the inflammation in your body. We all carry a large burden of toxins, even children. These toxins can be allergens, and pesticides, food additives, preservatives, heavy metals, diesel fumes and can include toxin exposure from employment such as hairdressing. I have a detoxification programme that improves digestion, balances the good bugs in the bowel, and promotes proper elimination. It also includes repair of the gut lining and supports the liver. Detoxification is the key to bringing about improvement in chronic conditions. If you are fit and well, with no medical conditions, a detox will help you stay well. It is not appropriate to detox during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Digestive pain

Digestive pain could be triggered by food allergy. You may have had tests done and they have found nothing wrong. An allergy test would be useful and herbal medicine as appropriate. I would use the QRA techniques also to identify the best treatments.

Diverticulitis

I have only seen one case of Diverticulitis and she has now been well for more than two years. I did an Allergy Test and used an anti-infective protocol over several months, along with immune support and Magnesium.

Ear infections

Frequent ear infections are very likely to be caused by allergy, especially dairy or wheat and dietary modification makes a big difference to the frequency and severity of ear infections, along with herbal or homeopathic treatments. You may wish to have an allergy test done.

Eczema or Dermatitis

Eczema is the most frequent skin condition I see and is common in all ages. I see babies and toddlers with Eczema and recommend a hair test, change of diet and treatment such as Essential Fatty Acids such as Fish oil, Flaxseed oil or Evening Primrose Oil. Often there is candida (fungal overgrowth) and bacterial infection, in which case I prescribe candida and immune drops for children and Candida herbal remedy or tablets for adults, together with appropriate Probiotics. If a cream is needed while we wait for the hair test result, I recommend Fidesan Cream by Heel.

I am a 16 year old boy who has had eczema for most of my life. I came to see Lynne late last year when it had become really bad – I was seeing a specialist at the hospital as all my lymph nodes were inflamed with the infection, it was horrible. But the doctors just gave me more steroids and antibiotics. My skin was flaking off in large chunks and I was embarrassed to be seen at school. Lynne was very understanding and inspired confidence in me that we could beat the eczema… she didn’t make me feel embarrassed because of my skin. She did some testing and changed my diet, and gave me herbal medicines and tablets. After 3 months my skin is heaps better, and eventually I can tell it will completely heal. I’m so glad we went to see her. John E, February 2011

Endometriosis

Endometriosis improves when sugar is removed from the diet. I have found that most clients with Endometriosis have candida and benefit from an anti-candida diet and candida treatment, as well as nutrients such as pure Vitamin E, Magnesium and Fish Oils and herbs for pain, if needed.

Fatigue

Fatigue is one of the most common complaints that I hear from clients and there are many possible reasons for fatigue. You could be low in iron (anemic), or you could be suffering from candida or poor sleep etc and this would be assessed in a consult. Again, the QRA techniques will be fabulous here to help identify the reasons for your fatigue and to identify the correct energy and adrenal remedies that you need. I commonly prescribe liquid B Vitamins (Max B), Concentrated Mineral Drops (CMD) and a herbal formula containing adrenal herbs but each case of fatigue is unique.

I first went to Lynne Flood at Health Wise, feeling lethargic, bloated and gaining weight. After a consult Lynne hooked me up with the right products and eating better. I now feel energetic, my skin is great and what’s best is that I am losing weight naturally. You have made a world of difference for me. Thanks hugely. Rachael, Auckland.

Fatty liver

Fatty liver is treated quite commonly and there are many herbs that are useful such as Milk Thistle. I would use the QRA techniques to determine the best liver remedies for you.

Flatulence

Flatulence responds well to avoidance of wheat and sugar and herbal Candida treatment and Probiotics. If there are other symptoms of allergy, I would recommend an allergy test.

Gout

I have seen many cases of Gout that have responded well to treatment. The well-known triggers of gout are beer, red wine, mussels, red meat etc. I recommend that if you have avoided the above triggers and this has not made any difference to your gout, that you get an allergy test done as I have found the patients I see have other triggers of gout that are readily identified in the allergy test. I also use minerals or herbal formula to treat gout successfully so that it does not recur.

I was recommended to Lynne by a friend. I had suffered from gout for many months. The pain was excruciating and it did not respond to medication. Lynne did an allergy test and gave me treatment and I changed my diet. I have been pain-free ever since. BB

Haemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids respond well to astringent herbs and a herbal cream.

Hay fever or Allergic Rhinitis

Hay fever is also caused by allergy and responds well to change of diet and treatment. I usually make a herbal formula for hay fever. I recommend an allergy test.

Heartburn

Heartburn is resolved by avoidance of food allergies, if necessary doing an allergy test, and using soothing herbs or slippery elm.

Herpes Simplex and Shingles

I use a formula with Echinacea and St John’s Wort, support for stress and topical treatment of lesions.

Hives, Itching and Rashes

Hives, itching and rashes are likely to be allergy related but can have other causes as well and each case is unique.

After about a month of suffering from a maddening itch, I consulted a Private Practice Skin Specialist, who prescribed some cream, which had no effect. I then went to the Hospital Skin Specialist Team, after some Skin Test Patches on my back showed no reaction. I was given more cream with no result! My wife then suggested I consult a Naturopath/Medical Herbalist, Lynne Flood who, after a lot of questions gave me some Herbal medication to work internally and with a change of diet. I am now about 99 % free of itch (I am not a good diet follower!) I thank Lynne for her expertise and recommend her without reserve. Arthur

Hyperactivity

Hyperactivity can be made worse by food allergy and I would consider modification of diet and supplementation with nutrients such as B Vitamins, zinc, magnesium and fish oils, as well as a herbal formula.

Hypoglycaemia – Blood Sugar Problems

If you crave sweets, are weak or irritable if a meal is missed, get dizzy when standing suddenly, get shaky or suffer from anxiety or nervousness, this may relate to low blood sugar or hypoglycemia. I will advise you to change your diet to include more complex carbohydrates and protein and reduce sugar or junk food and provide treatments such as chromium or magnesium or blood sugar products.

A friend recommended us to Lynne Flood, Naturopath, and we have been very grateful for the referral! Lynne has given excellent nutritional advice and herbal support for chronic depression and hypoglycemia, which has made an enormous improvement. Prior to consulting Lynne, medical treatment had resulted in severe side effects resulting in hospitalization. It is very gratifying that support can be given to these conditions without using drugs with the attendant side effects. Thank you Lynne. We do not hesitate to recommend you to friends and acquaintances for their health issues. JH, Mt Albert

Hypothyroid, Hashimoto’s Disease

Hypothyroid is very common amongst women aged 35-50yrs. The thyroid is responsible for all metabolism and when it under-functions, weight increases and cannot be reduced. You are also likely to feel tired and possibly depressed. I can identify low thyroid function with QRA testing and provide you with treatment to support the thyroid, improve energy and promote weight loss.

Inability to Concentrate

Inability to concentrate could have a number of causes and the QRA techniques would be useful here. Fish oils improve concentration, as do the herbs Bacopa and Ginkgo.

Inability to lose Weight

Where a client is unable to lose weight, after assessing the diet, I use the QRA techniques to assess thyroid, adrenal glands and pancreas as it is likely that these organs are out of balance. The thyroid is responsible for all metabolism and it needs to be functioning well for you to lose weight. If you are stressed, it is likely that the adrenal glands will need support too and there are many possible nutrients and herbs to treat adrenal glands. To lose weight, pancreas also needs to be working well. You may need chromium or there could be infection or candida and I would assess this using QRA techniques.

I found Lynne very easy to relate to and she was able to help me with my health problems, discovering the types of food I shouldn’t eat, which in turn has enabled me to lose weight more easily and has also stopped my bloated feeling. I would highly recommend Lynne to anyone who needs help with overcoming health problems and maintaining good health. Janet Kerr, Director at Slip Prevention Specialists Ltd

Insomnia

Insomnia responds well to change of diet, addition of Magnesium and herbal medicine. Herbal medicine and nutrients can strengthen and feed the nervous system so that you are able to cope with the demands of our busy life. Magnesium is commonly prescribed. Signs of magnesium deficiency are flickering eyelids, shaky tongue, cramps, painful periods and irritability. Magnesium is useful when treating anxiety, depression, headaches, migraines, palpitations and panic attacks. Magnesium also improves sleep, energy, your stress response and your mood.

Having suffered from insomnia for years I have depleted almost every medical option to get a good nights sleep. 
After meeting Lynne and reading about the benefits of mud packing, I decided to book an appointment. 
The result has been amazing. Soon after, I could feel a change in my energy levels and where I was waking up on average 10 times a night, I now wake up once or on the odd occasion sleep right through. For me the results have been life changing. 
Lynne is a kind and caring person with a gift. I highly recommend her. TW, Titirangi

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

This is characterised by alternating diarrhea and constipation and is often made worse by stress. I find that doing an Allergy Test (Hair Analysis), providing treatment for infection, Nervine herbs and Probiotics resolves Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Irritability

There are a number of reasons why you could be feeling Irritable or Grumpy. Magnesium is a good nutrient to increase when you feel grumpy. A child who is “sick, tired and grumpy” could be intolerant to wheat and/or gluten and this would best be checked by Hair Analysis.

Menopause and Menopausal Hot Flushes

I often see clients suffering with Menopausal Hot Flushes. I usually make a herbal formula to support adrenal glands, liver and improve energy, with the addition of B Vitamins or Magnesium, as needed. I expect hot flushes to have resolved within four to six weeks on herbal medicine. You can then reduce your dose and take on a more occasional basis. If you have been on HRT, the hot flushes will take longer to resolve.

Migraines

In my experience, Migraines resolve after doing an allergy test. Commonly headache and migraine patients react to dairy, chocolate, red wine and citrus but I recommend getting your hair test done to accurately pinpoint your own sensitivities. You may also respond well to Magnesium as this stops cramps and spasms in the blood vessels, thereby reducing Migraines and Headaches.

It was not unusual for me to wake up with a headache which would occasionally develop into a full on migraine leaving me totally debilitated for a whole day and feeling washed out the following day. If I was lucky I could control the headache with traditional medication, meaning I was taking far too many panadol, panadeine etc. I was not happy with the situation and went to Lynne for a hair test and learned I have a high intolerance to dairy products. I have since all but eliminated these from my diet and have not even had so much as a headache let alone a migraine. Lynne is hugely passionate about improving health and wellness the natural way and has great success in doing so. I highly recommend her. Jo, Auckland

Molluscum Contagiosum

Molluscums are quite a common infection amongst preschoolers. I have found that Molluscum Contagiosum responds well to immune treatment such as an individualised herbal immune formula and zinc.

Mouth ulcers

Mouth ulcers are often triggered by wheat or gluten but may have other triggers and respond well to dietary changes. Calendula and Myrrh can be applied to the mouth ulcers, if needed.

Osteoarthritis

Treatment will be unique to every individual. I find the QRA techniques invaluable for identifying the precise treatments needed for arthritis.

Panic attacks

Panic attacks respond well to a homeopathic anxiety spray, Magnesium and Nervine herbs. You are also likely to need adrenal support. There may be blood sugar issues and adrenal issues too.

Painful or heavy periods

If you suffer from painful or heavy periods, dietary changes will help, especially avoiding or reducing sugar. The nutrient I recommend is Magnesium and I like to prescribe a herbal formula or tablets to alleviate the pain. You could have a candida infection and I have found a candida treatment and avoidance of sugar, vastly improves period pain.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome will be improved by herbal medicine, best prescribed on an individual basis, nutritional supplements such as Zinc, Chromium or Fish oils, improved diet, especially a low carbohydrate diet and lifestyle changes.

Preconception Care

I cannot stress enough the importance of Preconception Care. Come and see me BEFORE you get pregnant. I will recommend a detox for both you and your partner and nutrients for you both to support fertility and of course a healthy diet.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

I recommend a Practitioner strength Pregnancy Multi and Fish Oils. It is a good idea to do Probiotics during the pregnancy and before the birth. You can take Raspberry Leaf tea from 16 weeks. You might like Spirulina as this makes healthy babies and breast milk. I will support you through the Preconception Care, Pregnancy and Breastfeeding.

Premenstrual Tension PMT

If you suffer from PMT or Premenstrual Tension and become “a witch” at that time of the month, please work on your diet! Reduce your sugar and increase your complex carbohydrates such as porridge and include nuts and seeds and more fruit and vegetables and protein. Avoid the junk food. You could also benefit from B vitamins and magnesium, chromium and herbal formula or a candida treatment will have you feeling better.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis responds to your allergy result, nutrients such as Zinc and Essential Fatty Acids and herbal treatments prescribed on an individual basis. It can take several months to fully resolve, depending on severity.

I went to see Lynne Flood regarding my chronic skin condition. I was very unwell when I came to see her. She did an allergy test and used muscle testing to choose my treatment. I have improved with my skin and health. I have lost 20kg over a period of time. Lynne has been great. Lisa

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an auto-immune condition and is therefore challenging to treat and results take some time to achieve. However, improvements can be gained when you are on the correct remedies for you. It is hard to generalize but I would be assessing all under-lying triggers such as bacteria, allergy, heavy metal toxicity etc and QRA techniques can give precise treatments.

After three weeks on the natural products Lynne prescribed, I have finally got some quality back in my life. I can now walk every day, compared to walking one day and having to rest and recuperate from severe pain. I couldn’t be happier. Thanks Lynne. Sheryl

Rosacea

I have treated Rosacea and I recommend an allergy test and dietary changes, Essential Fatty Acids and a herbal formula. It can also have a hormonal aspect and in this case I recommend Vitex or Chaste Tree. This is best prescribed by a professional. It can take some time to fully resolve.

Stress

Stress and Adrenal Depletion are the most common conditions I see, along with fatigue. I use herbs such as Liquorice, Rehmannia, Withania and Rhodiola. I also consider B Vitamins, Magnesium and Vitamin C, along with immune support such as Echinacea.

I am usually a happy go lucky character in good health and fitness but after two deaths in our family followed by sudden redundancy my health declined and my stress levels were very high. I thought I was coming right but another massive tragic loss brought me to my knees. Some time after this I had blood tests at my GP who said nothing unusual showed. I was skeptical because I was feeling so tired and lethargic all the time and had no energy. I knew I had to call Lynne. I went to see Lynne who did a series of tests to see which tonics suited my body type best. Two weeks after my visit and on the recommended tonics I started to feel more energy. It has now been nearly two months since my initial visit and I have bounced back with a load more energy and motivation. Lynne is very professional and gifted and has time for people. I can strongly recommend her services and want to say a huge thank you for getting my health back on track ! —Alan, Auckland

Teething – baby

I recommend Traumeel Gel by Heel for teething as it is safe and natural.

Tonsillitis or frequent Sore Throats

Tonsillitis is likely to be caused by allergy, often dairy products but not always. If you or your child has frequent bouts of tonsillitis, I recommend an Allergy Test as a first step, followed by treatment.

Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis responds well to an allergy test and avoidance of your food sensitivities, along with an individualized treatment. My treatment will depend on the severity and whether you are on medications.

Weight Loss

Where a client is unable to lose weight, after assessing the diet, I use the QRA techniques to assess thyroid, adrenal glands and pancreas as it is likely that these organs are out of balance. The thyroid is responsible for all metabolism and it needs to be functioning well for you to lose weight. If you are stressed, it is likely that the adrenal glands will need support and there are many possible nutrients and herbs to treat adrenal glands. To lose weight, pancreas also needs to be working well. You may need chromium or there could be infection or candida and I would assess this by using QRA techniques. Most weight loss patients I see are eating very little. It is more about metabolism, than about your diet. Patients are “apple-shaped”, with weight held around the middle. This is known as Syndrome X or Metabolic Syndrome and is a precursor to diabetes. Cholesterol and blood sugars may be high and blood pressure may be elevated.

I went to see Lynne Flood regarding my chronic skin condition. I was very unwell when I came to see her. She did an allergy test and used muscle testing to choose my treatment. I have improved with my skin and health. I have lost 20kg over a period of time. Lynne has been great. Lisa

Wellness and Healthy Ageing

The first step in a Wellness programme is to identify and address any drivers of inflammation. I recommend a QRA Quantum Research Analysis Warrant of Fitness. This programme could include detoxification, identification of food allergies, correction of nutrient deficiencies etc and following a healthy diet and lifestyle. This regime will result in wellness and healthy ageing. This is true preventative medicine and is the strength of naturopathy.

Lynne is passionate about naturopathy. She is constantly upskilling to bring to the client the best product to suit their particular needs. I find her warm, and approachable with precise techniques to determine my own and my daughter’s unique needs with great results. The products worked their magic. Yogasarita Mitchell director at Yoga In Life

Wheezing

Wheezing is likely to be triggered by food allergy. Clients are often sensitive to environmental substances such as mould or pollens but I find that once the diet is changed to avoid your food allergies, including preservatives such as Sulphur Dioxide, you will better tolerate mould, pollens or cold air etc. The QRA Quantum Reflex Analysis techniques are useful to determine the right remedies for lungs.

Worms, intestinal

There are many different products I choose from to treat worms, parasites and protozoa. QRA techniques are useful to determine the right remedies.
