FOOD INTOLERANCE

Leaky gut syndrome

Food intolerance is caused by leaky gut syndrome due to inflammatory changes in the lining of the intestine that enable allergic particles of food to pass through the gut wall and cause release of inflammatory chemicals (cytokines and histamines). These cause symptoms such as colic, migraine and dermatitis. Leaky gut syndrome is also known as dysbiosis from ancient Greek dys (bad) and bios (life).

 

Food intolerance can be implicated in Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine and dermatitis. For example, a child with eczema may be sensitive to eggs and/or milk. Migraine can be associated with sensitivity to milk, wheat, coffee and chocolate and with sensitivity to  tyramine rich foods such as cheese and red wine. Premenstrual fluid retention can be made worse by wheat, yeast, salt and milk. Intestinal candidiasis (fungal infection) is associated with intolerance to yeast and sugar (1).

 

Mental illness can be associated with intolerances to certain foods such as milk, eggs, coffee and white flour (2). 

 

While it is helpful to identify and exclude poorly tolerated foods, it is also important to treat the associated leaky gut syndrome. Causes of leaky gut syndrome Include inflammatory bacteria, fungi (candida) and microparasites (e.g. Giardia Lamblia). Dental mercury poisoning is a major underlying cause of dysbiosis and when implicated should also be treated.

At this clinic, bacterial dysbiosis is treated with probiotics and prebiotics selected under vegatest control. Probiotics are supplements of healthy intestinal microflora such as acidophilus and prebiotics are supplements of anti-inflammatory soluble microfibre such as inulin. Fungus and microparasite infections are also identified treated naturopathically.

CORONAVIRUS

GENERAL ADVICE
1. If you have a runny nose with catarrh, you only have a common cold.

If you are coughing up yellowish phlegm, you are likely to have a bacterial chest infection rather than coronavirus.
2. Coronavirus pneumonia presents with a dry cough, no runny nose, no sputum and difficulty breathing. There may also be chest pain.
3. Coronavirus does not survive in hot sunny climates with temperatures of above about 26 degrees. 

4. Good hydration and hot drinks are beneficial. 
5. If someone with coronavirus sneezes, there is a risk of spreading the infection within a radius of about ten feet. 
6. If the virus lands on a metal surface, it will survive for at least twelve hours - so if you come into contact with a metal surface - wash your hands as soon as possible. 
7. The virus can survive on fabric for 6-12 hours. Normal hot washing with detergent will destroy it.
8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can survive on hands for 5-10 minutes. Hand washing also reduces the risk of transferring the virus from one's hands to one's eyes, nose and mouth. 


SYMPTOMS
Initially, there is a sore throat lasting 3-4 days. After 5-6 days, there is high fever with difficulty in breathing, chest pain and a dry cough with no phlegm. 

 

ROLE OF RADIO TRANSMISSIONS AND TOXIC POLLUTION

A recent article in the World Foundation for Natural Science concluded that although 5G radio transmissions are unlikely to be the direct cause of coronavirus, they are, nevertheless, an environmental pollutant and that environmental pollution predisposes to infectious diseases. See:

 https://www.naturalscience.org/news/2020/03/coronavirus-and-5g/

During March 2020, Switzerland became the first country to ban 5G radio transmissions because of health concerns. See:

PREVENTION OF CORONAVIRUS

ENERGY DOTS

These are small discs that prevent the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation. The technology is supported by scientific research: for example, plants exposed to harmful electromagnetic radiation grow better when protected with smart energy dot technology.

​​

Energy dots are available from

www.energydots.com  and  https://www.healthy-house.co.uk/

Dr Bourne wears a Biodot in a small wallet in his back trouser pocket and has a Smartdot stuck onto the back of his wrist watch. His wife, Valerie, has confirmed with muscle testing (kinesiology), that these reduce the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation from a smartphone and from a computer router. 

ALKALISING 

Infections are less likely to affect people, who are slightly alkaline with a pH of above 7 (see below). An alkalising diet contains plenty of fruit and vegetables, organic meat (does not contain antibiotics) and organic fish. Sourdough bread and organic eggs are OK.  Processed foods that contain colourings and preservatives (particularly processed meat) and sugary foods should be kept to a minimum. Alkalising supplements can also be taken if necessary.

ALKALISING SUPPLEMENTS

Alkalising supplements should be taken at least an hour before or after meals so as not to interfere with digestion. ​

Initially, one teaspoonful of baking powder (sodium bicarbonate) in about half a glass of water should be taken three times a day until a balanced alkalising preparation and pH test strips can be obtained.

A balanced alkalising preparation + pH test strips is available as Alkamax powder from Water for Health (01764 662111)

​​

A first morning urine pH should be routinely tested with the pH test strips and the dose of alkalising salts adjusted to maintain a first morning urine pH of between 7 and 7.4 (slightly alkaline). ​ 

NANO SILVER SPRAY 

The spray can be used about four times a day to spray nano silver into the nose and throat. It is suggested that a litre of nano silver is bought at the same time as the spray to be used to top up the spray and as a standby for treatment of subsequent acute infections that have not responded to conventional antibiotics.  

TREATMENT OF CORONAVIRUS

NANO SILVER

Nano silver is a naturopathic antibiotic that looks and tastes like water. The recommended oral dose for acute infections is 15 ml (one tablespoonful) to be taken four times a day. The liquid should be held in the mouth for as long as possible before swallowing – ideally for about one minute.

Nano silver from a nano silver spray should also be sprayed into the nose and throat at least four times a day.

 

It is suggested that two litres of Nano silver and a nano silver spray are purchased initially.

Nano silver preparations are available from the Natural Dispensary (01453 757 792) and from Noble Naturals Ltd (01342 457 170).

​RATIONALE FOR ALKALISING THE BIOLOGICAL TERRAIN

Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) introduced the germ theory of infection during 1880s. At about the same time, another French scientist, Claude Bernard (1813-78), who is regarded as the father of modern physiology, introduced a rival ‘milieu intérieur’ (biological terrain) theory of infection. Bernard proposed that the biological terrain is of greater importance in causing infectious disease than the microbe. ​

Shortly before he died in 1895, Pasteur conceded to Bernard, with the remark, ​

 

“La bactérie n’est rien. C’est le terrain qui fait tout!”

 

​Since then, it has become evident that both schools of thought are relevant to the spread of infection.

 

With dark ground microscopy, it has been shown that alkalising the body (biological terrain) significantly reduces the number of pathogenic microbes in infected subjects' blood samples. In view of this finding, it is standard practice in naturopathic medicine to include alkalising salts in the treatment of microbial illnesses.

THE BIOLOGICAL TERRAIN AND INFECTIOUS DISEASE

Environmental pollution from industrial chemicals, exhaust fumes and electromagnetic radiation damages healthy world ecosystems and promotes epidemic infectious diseases.
