Cleaning-Mould-With-Essential-oils.jpg

Mould is a serious issue for anyone with a chronic illness or a compromised immune system especially affecting individuals with Lyme Disease and associated infections. Mould can also stop any treatments you are undergoing from working so it really is important to take measures to rid your home of mould.

Natural solutions are favored by most of our guests here at Neomed so we wanted to give you some ways to combat mould growth with the use of essential oils.

Plants naturally contain powerful therapeutic properties to protect themselves from harmful substances such as bacteria and mould so it is no surprise that essential oils, which are potent distillations extracted from these plants, exhibit these abilities.

Essential oils with anti-fungal properties include Thyme, Oregano, Clove, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Lemongrass, Geranium, Cinnamon, Basil and Dill. Of course different essential oils are more effective for different types of mould. For example clove essential oil is particularly useful against black mould (Aspergillus niger). You may have to experiment over a period of time to see which essential oil is most effective in your home.

When cleaning mould you always wear protective gear over your skin and clothes including a mouthguard and if you are already unwell or are sensitive to mould, find someone else to do this for you.

We recommend not to use a spray bottle as spraying mould can actually make fine particles of mould airborne and you want to contain the problem as much as possible so instead use a small basin to prepare your solution and a sponge or cloth to douse the area, leave for 10 minutes and then wipe clean.

Essential Oil Mould Cleaning Solution Recipe

250ml Distilled White Vinegar or Isopropyl Alcohol
250ml Water
30 Drops of Essential Oil (using 15 drops of essential oil per 250ml of liquid)

Note when using essential oils on wood or paint it can peeling as they are very potent so use caution. If you have particularly stubborn areas which need scrubbing you can use baking soda, combined with water (50/50 ratio) and add essential oils of your choice to the mixture.

Diffusing essential oils with a nebulising diffuser is also another daily remedy to purifying the air in your home and combating the effects of mould.

Of course there is many ways to combat mould in your home and the above is just a few suggestions. Sometimes mould is such a deep rooted issue in a home that the only way to escape the effects is to move to a different home where possible.

Natural Treatment Targeting the Cause of Bone Loss

Around the world figures show that each year osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures. This equates to an osteoporotic fracture every 3 seconds. Statistics also show women are more affected with 1 in 3 women over age 50 experiencing an osteoporotic fracture compared to 1 in 5 men.

There is many causes of excessive bone loss leading to osteoporosis including a drop in estrogen when a woman reaches a certain age, hyperthyroidism, mineral and vitamin deficiencies, toxic exposure, eating disorders, sedentary lifestyle, some medications used to treat other conditions and smoking among others. And although predominately it affects those over the age of 50 it can also affect younger generations. Some are diagnosed with Osteoporosis in their teens while there is also a growing number of women getting diagnosed during or after pregnancy, a condition called Pregnancy Related Osteoporosis.

More and more individuals diagnosed with osteoporosis are seeking natural ways to treat their condition. Here at Neomed in Cyprus we have created an Osteoporosis program for such individuals which targets the cause of bone loss and therefore tailored to each individual guest.

One of the very first steps in our program is to discover what levels of heavy metal toxicity reside in your organs and tissues and which minerals you are actually deficient in. Frequent exposure to toxic substances can actually cause vitamin and mineral deficiencies and we find that the majority of individuals with Osteoporosis will have both these issues. Lead for example is known to inhibit activation of vitamin D, uptake of dietary calcium, and several regulatory aspects of bone cell function. We use an amazing piece of technology called Zell Screening to discover this important data before we do anything else. Rather than testing what is circulating in the blood or what is being excreted from the body through urine, this non invasive test shows what toxicity and what minerals are in the body’s living tissues which gives us a much more reliable and accurate picture.

Once we know what levels of toxicity you have and which substances we embark on our unique detox program to drag these out of your tissues. As part of our detox we use ozone therapies to clean your blood of any bacteria, viruses or yeast, to stimulate your metabolism and to boost your immune system.

Our next step is to examine your digestive tract to discover if you are absorbing the nutrients in your food, whether your body is eliminating all unwanted substances and also whether there is any parasitic infection in your gut contributing to malabsorption. Once we have a picture of your digestive system we include advanced gastrointestinal therapies to your program to correct the microbiome of the intestinal tract, to heal the mucosa lining and to increase the absorption of the nutrients from your foods. We also look at correcting your acidic ph balance with special alkalising infusions direct into your bloodstream bypassing the gut process.

Of course included in this step is to look at your diet and we will make specific recommendations based on your Zell Screening report and on the analysis of your digestive system.

Decreasing inflammation and pain along with the healing and strengthening of bone injured from fractures is also a very important part of our program. We have a range of sophisticated and groundbreaking physio, magnet therapies and electrical stimulation to help us with this task. One of the favourite therapies for our guests is Papimi. Papimi is the most powerful nanopulse magnet therapy available with an array of benefits including immune stimulation and pain relief, and shortened recovery times for fractures and injuries. Papimi not only helps to heal fractured bone but also helps to strengthen it and with regular use helps to prevent future fractures.

We also guide and support you through an exercise program, one which you can continue when you return home. Daily exercise is imperative for anyone with osteoporosis even though many shy away from this because of fear of fractures.

Prolonged stress can also contribute to osteoporosis, so we have included therapies to switch your autonomic nervous system from sympathetic to parasympathetic mode. We are also encourage all of our guests to spend time with our Physiotherapist to include emotional healing alongside their physical therapies.

If you have a diagnosis of Osteoporosis and a natural route is your chosen path you do not have to do so alone. There is many ways we can help you and support your on your healing journey.
