Gail Medbury - Herbalist

 

 

I have been working as a Natural Therapy Practitioner since 1993 and have been with the Vitality Health Centre since 2000 and I am now one of their senior health practitioners.

 

My approach is a holistic form of healthcare that encompasses all aspects of a person’s health, lifestyle and diet and the impact these have emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. Everything is interconnected. What happens to one part of the body affects every other part of the body. The mind and body should not be viewed separately, but as part of an energetic system. Similarly, organs, and organ systems are viewed as interconnected structures that work together to keep the body functioning.

 

I have a very strong commitment to and passion about natural health care and have the firm belief that the body has an innate ability to heal itself when provided with the right tools. I also understand that every person’s requirements are different and therefore see the importance of tailoring the treatment to the client. My focus is to achieve positive health outcomes for each client.

 

I have experience in treating many chronic and acute health complaints such as:

 

 

  • Immune Health (eg chronic fatigue, auto-immune issues, viruses, bacterial infections)
  • Digestive Health (eg candida, wind, bloating, pain, indigestion, reflux, constipation, diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Mental Health (eg anxiety, depression)
  • Nervous System and Adrenal Health (stress, anxiety, fatigue, nervous tension, insomnia)
  • Musculoskeletal Health (eg osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, muscular pain and cramps, fibromyalgia, back and neck pain)
  • Women’s Health (eg PMS, hormonal imbalances, menopause, dysmenorrhea , pre and post natal care, infertility, urinary tract infections)
  • Children’s Health (eg sleeping problems, bed wetting, learning difficulties, ADHD, ADD)
  • Skin Health (eg eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, dry skin, fungal infections)
  • Respiratory Health (eg hayfever, allergies, asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, tonsillitis, ear infections)

 

 

SERVICES PROVIDED

 

BioCybernectic Medicine

 

This state-of-the-art, non-invasive computerised diagnostic and treatment technology measures the balances and imbalances of energy within the body. All functions of the human body are controlled by electrogmagnetic signals (EM signals). In order to determine whether your body is subject to distubances we measure your electro-magnetic energy system. According to the scale of the deviation from a balanced value, we can identify acute or toxic events, chronic illness or degeneration. This system is based on homotoxicology principals, where diseases are considered to ultimately be caused by toxins. These toxins can include chemicals, bacterial exotoxins, biological endotoxins, post-traumatic cellular debris and also by-products of the body’s own metabolic processes.

 

Listen System (Bio-Energetic Medicine/Electrodermal Screening)

 

The Listen System is a computerised program which draws upon concepts and methods used in Eastern and Western Medicine and uses Chinese Medicine knowledge, which idenfitied meridians within the body that are energy pathways. Variations from the norm can indicate if there is an energy imbalance within the body. With this system I can determine these imbalances and with this information I can determine the appropriate teatments/supplements which will stimulate the body’s energy system to rebalance and heal itself.

 

The energy measurements are taken with a probe that is applied to the meridian points on the hands and feet. Approximately 25-30 measurements are taken during a standard 1 hour consultation, which will include such areas as the immune and nervous systems, adrenals, liver, kidneys, skin, stomach and large and small intestines to name just a few. The energy readings are then captured on computer for analysis and provide a benchmark for measuring recovery.

 

The Listen Program can also perform the following:

 

  • Food Allergy Testing
  • Environmental and Chemical Allergy Testing
  • Vitamin and Mineral Anaylsis Testing for Heavy Metal, Pesticide, Chemical and Solvents

RBTI Anaylsis

 

RBTI Analysis testing is a tool that measures the residues and components of urine and saliva which provides information about what is happening at the biochemical level in the body. It helps to identify where the body is out of balance and how to design a programme to help achieve optimal health and restore balance.

 

Herbal Medicine

 

Herbalists believe in the healing power of nature. We look to nature for the food that we eat and the water that we drink and traditionally we have also look to the plant kingdom for the medicine we require when ill. Herbs were the first medicine and still remain a highly effective medicine to support and balance the body and restore it to a healthy state.

 

Nutrition

 

Nutrition and diet are a big focus of the consultation process as food is an integral and unavoidable part of life. Sometimes all you need is some help with your diet to regain and maintain your health. Using food as your medicine can alleviate symptoms, boost energy levels and improving your overall wellbeing.

 

Iridology

 

Iridology is the study of the iris, the coloured part of the eye. Iridology demonstrates just how inter-connected the body is, as the iris is a reliable representation of a person’s health and wellbeing. Iridology is a painless and interesting diagnostic tool and forms an important element of the total health programme.
