Issue 13 of The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine is now on the shelves in New Zealand and copies were posted out to NZ subscribers on April 29, so these should arrive soon.  (Australian subscribers should receive their copies by June 1.)

The cover story for this issue looks at the mechanisms through which constituents of Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa exert anti-cancer activity.  Cannabis is still illegal in New Zealand, but in countries where the plant is legal, such as Israel, research has confirmed many medicinal uses for this persecuted plant.  World-wide interest in the use of Cannabis extracts since several US states and the country of Bolivia  legalised the use of this herb.

  • Also in this issue, we publish a report by breast surgeon Dr John West, MD, on a link between carrying a mobile phone in a bra and the development of breast cancer – in some cases in women as young as their early 20s.  Also relevant to breast cancer prevention is a growing body of research showing aluminium accumulation in breast tissue, raising the possibility that aluminium-containing anti-perspirants may contribute to the development of this disease in some women.
  • Chronic pain can be a terrible burden for people who have degenerative diseases or other long-term conditions in which pain is a significant symptom.  In this issue we feature an article on a non-drug method of pain relief – SCENAR – therapy by Dr Jorg Prinz as well as an introduction to prolotherapy which can assist in cartilage regeneration.
  • This issue also explores how the US Centers for Disease Control covered up the connection between the mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal and autism in children.  Most vaccines intended for children in the developed world no longer contain added thimerosal;  however, the article offers an important insight into how government agencies may put the agenda of national vaccination programme above children’s health.
  • Psychologist Philip Hickey PhD, discusses how neuroleptic drugs now frequently used to treat children with autism can cause brain damage.  We also welcome Dr Kelly Brogan, MD, who has contributed an article on how common foods such as gluten-containing grains and dairy products may adversely affect some people and cause symptoms of “mental health” problems – and how such issues may be treated.  Also in mental health, journalist Jon Rappoport explodes the myth promulgated by the psychiatric profession – that mental illness is caused by a “chemical imbalance” in the brain – and what this means for the future of psychiatry.
  • In other articles, Malcolm Harker, MHD, one of New Zealand’s best-known herbalists, shares some of his secrets in an article on how to make your own home remedies, and Dr Ben Kim tells you what most doctors won’t tell you about cholesterol and your health.
  • In healing with food, Sayer Ji, PhD, explains how garlic could save your life, and expounds on the health-promoting properties of coconut oil.
  • How homoeopathy helped a woman with pneumonia recover so that she no longer required a ventilator, how reflexology can promote a relaxation response and enhance healing and how a pine-bark extract developed in NZ offers hope to people with drug-resistant migraines.

Videos from launch event on June 15, 2014

June 15 was the official launch data for issue 13 of The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine as well as the new online Natural Medicine Resource and Events Directory http://natural-medicine.directory/.

Held in Auckland’s Mount Eden War Memorial Hall, this event was compered by the publisher of The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine Jonathan Eisen and featured four guest speakers.

First to speak was Dr. Wayne McCarthy who shared his experiences as a naturopathic physician specialising in ozone therapy.  Dr. McCarthy practises at Global Health Clinics in Takapuna, Auckland and at the Northland Environmental Health Centre in Whangarei.  He described the large range of conditions in which ozone can be applied in medicine, particularly infections and as a treatment for conditions in which there is poor circulation. One condition in which ozone can be used to good effect is diabetic gangrene.  Ozone can provide oxygen to revitalise oxygen-starved tissues which are succumbing to infection and once this medical crisis (which could lead to amputation, if not successfully treated)  has been resolved, EDTA chelation therapy can be used to reduce plaque deposits in the blood vessels and improve circulation.

You can see Dr. McCarthy speak here:

The second speaker, John Oxlade introduced the new Natural Medicine Resource and Events Directory.  John and Pip Oxlade have been running the NZ Holistic Health for many years.  Their new Natural Medicine Resource and Events Directory http://natural-medicine.directory/ provides a convenient way for practitioners and businesses to advertise goods and services and for people who want to find a practitioner or learn about local events or training opportunities in their local area to access this information.

Our third speaker for the afternoon, Dr. Sam Shay, DC, PGDip(Acu), who practises at Hamilton’sNatural BodyLink clinic poignantly described how medical misadventure prematurely ended his grandfather’s life.  He then explained the fundamentals of good health – and how disease and dysfunction can be addressed through identifying the causes and using appropriate treatments, including lifestyle modifications.  Dr. Shay’s website is www.TenPointWellness.com

Subscriber FAQs

Q: How long will it take for my magazine to arrive?

A: If you have ordered the current issue or one or more back issues, these should arrive within three weeks of your order. (The comparatively long time frame is due to lengthy mail delivery times when mail is posted to rural areas: if you are in a major city or town then you may receive your copy sooner.)

If you have ordered a copy of the Journal that has not yet been produced, it will be sent to you once it has been printed.

 

Q: How will I know when my subscription is due for renewal?

A: You will receive a renewal form with the last issue of your subscription.

 

Q: Why do Australian subscribers (and stores) receive their copies later than stores and subscribers in New Zealand?

A: The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine is printed in New Zealand and sent to Australia via sea (as airfreight is prohibitively expensive and using this option would mean that we would have to increase the price for Australian customers.)

 

Q:  I am in Australia and my copy of issue 13 has not yet arrived.  When can I expect it?

A:  It should be with you within the next two weeks; we apologise for the delay. Please see this link for more details:  http://www.naturalmedicine.net.nz/news/australian-subscriber-update/

June 25: Documentary examines breast screening

This event has now come and gone…however, Tauranga Monthly Film Nights holds screenings of many interesting films (including a screening of the award-winning documentary on “smart meters” Take Back Your Power www.takebackyourpower.net  so you may want to visit the group’s Facebook page (details below).

There is also a Facebook page for the film The Promise at this link:  https://www.facebook.com/truthaboutbreastscreening

 

 

The Promise – the truth about the routine breast screening program”.

If you have breasts, or you love someone who has breasts, this film may be one of the most important you will ever see.

Wednesday, 25th June 7.00pm.

Wesley Centre, 100 Thirteenth Avenue ( map link )

 

Entry $8.00, cash only, at door (light supper included)

‘The Promise’ is a well researched, authoritative documentary that examines the benefits and risks of mass mammographic screening, and looks at alternative screening methods that address its shortcomings. The film’s title comes from the ‘promise’ that screening mammography will reduce the incidence of late stage breast cancer and cancer deaths by detecting breast cancer early; however, after 25 years of breast cancer screening in the UK, it seems that it is not living up to this promise.

With an increasing body of peer-reviewed independent research shedding doubt on the efficacy and safety of mammograms this film is a must-see. (See attached resource sheet for further information and links to research).

Guest speakers Truly Godfrey and Dr Mike Godfrey will be on hand to answer questions, discuss alternatives, and demonstrate a thermography machine in action (we reassure you no breasts will be bared during the demo!).

Testimonials for this film include:

“Wonderful film, thought provoking, challenging and intelligent. This film gives women information and options to take their health back into their own hands”

“Loved the film for the way it gives information and exposes the misinformation given to women who really believe they are taking care of their health when they show up for a mammogram”

“Very impressed by a logical common sense review…It has become apparent that archaic systems of detection and procedure may border on barbaric. Quite simply the whole system needs to be reviewed and women need to be informed of choices…”.

 

 

 

Apology to Australian subscribers

We would like to offer an apology to our Australian subscribers who are having to wait longer than expected for their copy of issue 13.

We have changed the way we are sending out mail to Australian subscribers (a change which in the long run will improve service) however with this first issue there have been some teething problems, hence the delay.

We hope the copies will arrive within the next fortnight.

Issue 13 is a great issue and we thank you for your patience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Featured contributor: David Etheredge

Editor’s introduction: Like many people who are involved in the natural and/or “alternative” health movement, David Etheridge’s interest in health began with his struggle with ill health.

The author of the article “Simple Electricity for Fighting Disease” (in issue 12 of The NZ Journal of Natural Medicine) shares the story of his own health problems – and their resolution, below.

 

Growing up, I spent a lot of time outdoors, playing in ditches and marshy areas. I apparently picked up some parasites that caused asthma and allergies. I also was exposed to some molds that caused sinus issues as well as leading to more frequent colds and flu over the years. At the age of about 20 I was diagnosed as having three different intestinal parasites and was treated but was not able to get rid of them. At the age of 50 I was in serious health condition and was told that I would have to pay a premium for either health insurance or life insurance. Among the issues that I had, other than parasites, allergies, chronic sinus problems, was IBS, colitis, and extreme sleep apnea. I  used to have to keep a medicine cabinet full of medications such as Contact, Allerest, Nyquil, inhalers, nasal sprays, and antibiotics.

In 1993, when I first heard about a device that used electricity to kill microbes and other pathogenic or parasitic organisms, I was very skeptical but at the same time, curious. I has studied biology and chemistry in both high school and in college but had never heard of any such approach. Even when I attended graduate school, working towards a masters degree in biomedical engineering that I never finished, there was never a mention that electricity might be used to fight disease and illness.

However, I set the article aside and decided that sometime down the road, I would look into it. Years passed and I never took the time to look at the article again, but something change during the period of 1999 to 2001. During that period, I experienced several bouts of the flu in a short term as did most of the people that I worked with. Unlike most seasonal flu, this flu was worse and it was not unusual for people to miss 3 to 4 days of work or even spend a week being bed ridden. One person was not having the extensive illness that other were and I asked him his secret. He reached into his pocket and handed me a little hand made electronic device that had a 9 volt battery attached. I replied, I have heard about these things but did not believe that they could really work.

After a few minutes of discussion, he let me borrow his unit as he had a spare. I took the unit home and put it on the coffee table and left it there, still being skeptical. A few nights later, after dinner, I developed a chill and aching muscles, leading me to the realization that I was coming down with the  flu. I decided to be brave and picked up the little zapper, turned it on, and held it for a little over an hour. At that point, I felt very tired and went to be expecting to be really sick in the morning.

Amazingly, I woke up a little earlier than usual the next morning and felt great. I actually felt better than I had in several years because of the several health issues that I had. I was completely impressed and immediately started looking for a zapper to buy on the Internet. I was upset by some of the outrageous prices. As a result, I studied, built my own ( ParaZapper was one of the first dual frequency zappers made ) and decided at the encouragement of friends to market these devices.

Today, at the age of almost 64, I am much healthier than I was at 50, I had a very mild, 2 day bout of H1N1 this last year and only had short mild cases of the flu 3 times since I started zapping. My parasites appear to be gone, I do not suffer from IBS or colitis any more, I have relieved some serious tooth infections and abscesses, relieved spider bites, and gotten rid of recurrent skin cancer. What more can I ask from a product that is so reasonably priced and that has saved me thousands in medical cost. Today, there is little of anything in my medicine cabinet. I have not needed Nyquil, Contact, or Allerest since I started using a zapper.

While there are many zapper makers and sellers out there, most make a product but do not seek to make significant improvements. Some have been around for almost 20 years and think, sadly and regrettably, that their product is perfect when that is far from the truth.

What we offer today is a range of products to cover the financial and functional needs of most likely users. At the top of this range is the ParaZapper MY which exceeds anything else out there in convenience and effectiveness. The ParaZapper MY and several other models of Hulda Clark Zappers and Rife Frequency Zappers are available at http://www.huldaclarkparazapper.com.    You can also find additional information at http://www.paradevices.com where a book is sold about the topic.

Our PledgeMe campaign has raised $4500 – a fantastic effort!- but we have only 2 weeks to go (till 11.00pm, Saturday 7 JUNE) to raise another $2500 to reach our minimum needed TARGET of $7000 and if we don’t reach it we cant receive ANY of the pledged monies.

(PledgeMe requires stipulated targets must be reached or surpassed to receive any of the pledged money)

 

So Please click to view our campaign here – www.pledgeme.co.nz/projects/2054 – watch our inspiring Growing Schools 3 minute trailer, check out our sweet ‘thank you rewards’ and importantly make a pledge – whatever you can  to help get us over the finish line.

 

Every pledge, no matter how big or small, will collectively contribute towards the production of this positive solutions resource for distribution to schools, teachers, parents, and organisations throughout the country.

Kay Baxter from Koanga Institute national speaking tour

Editor’s note:  As you may know, the Koanga Institute, started by Kay Baxter holds New Zealand’s premiere heritage seed and fruit tree collection. Kay is currently touring NZ to raise money to buy the land on which the has been established. Below is an email from naturopath Caroline Marshall explaining the importance of the tour.

Details of the talks may be found at this link www.koanga.org.nz

 

Hi All.

As you may already know funds are urgently required to buy the Koanga Institutes leasehold land, as the owners now want to sell it to commercial forestry interests, but have given Kay until June to come up with the money to buy it instead.

Yesterday, as a volunteer for the 3 Auckland talks, which are part of her nationwide FUND raising tour, I attended the 3 hr talk of NZ famous heritage seeds and tree saver, Kay Baxter of the Wairoa based, Koanga Institute.
Brilliant – everyone who cares about our food supply, our environment and the health and well being of ourselves and future generations needs to hear her!!!

Kay also talks about Dr Weston A Price.  Kay used to be the Weston A Price Foundation chapter leader for the Hawke’s Bay however isn’t anymore, I imagine, due to these more immediate pressing concerns.

This is more than a talk – the institute’s “shop” is traveling with them too.
Lots of booklets, a few select books, seed packs, and if you join the institute, ($45) then you receive an excellent garden planner which contains very practical and easy to follow useful information, such as, when to plant what and most importantly when to expect to be able to harvest your bounty from the heritage seeds!

Without being patronising or anything like that, the garden planner seems like a Gardening for Idiots guide really -  Kay seriously wants to make it very easy for everyone, despite many city folk being reluctant to do so, for whatever reason, sew a few seeds and feed themselves and maybe even share with others – just like we used to when I was growing up down country :-)

I remember every time my mother and I visited her sisters and her rural friends we’d come home with cuttings of this and that plant, a box of veges and maybe some fruit.   As soon as we got home the cuttings would be kept in the newspaper wrapping but placed in the wash house tub until mum had time to plant it.   Despite raising three children on her own and working full time, mum dutifully planted silverbeet, carrots, parsnips, rhubarb, pumpkin, a lemon tree, maybe apple trees etc etc as she had grown up on a farm and therefore knew how to grow some food.
In our hot water cupboard I remember there often being seeds drying for various food plants, pumpkin seeds come to mind immediately, they were usually in recycled tins cans.   Mum’s great, great grand mother, Emily Marshall (yes I had Marshall’s on both of my parents sides of the family) was responsible for importing many of the old fashioned ornamental plants that are still around NZ – eg the South African Red Hot Poker.   NZ author and illustrator, Kerry Carmen, recorded those stories in an historical book called Emily’s Garden The Colonial New Zealand Garden of a Suffolk Lady.

Anyway I digress, please visit  www.koanga.org.nz  for further details about the Auckland talk and a list of the other places so far destined for a talk.

Kay would also like to hear from those of you who are in areas not listed, as they are keen to spread NZ grown food heritage far and wide, so may consider a talk closer to you.
They are also following up with teaching hands on WORKSHOPS following straight on from the speaking tour.

PLEASE PLEASE GO ALONG – support a vital cause and experience this very interesting & important talk again this Monday and Tuesday nights in Mt Eden, Auckland or coming up soon in other centres.

Please share far and wide.

Best regards,
Caroline    :-)

WELLfest, where wellness counts …

Coming up in the latter half of this year are three WELLfest expos which feature a collection of exhibitors, entertainment, key speakers and free seminars which are offering New Zealand’s very first “West meets East, North and South” expo.

 

The key to WELLfest is that these expos recognise that health and wellness is not “one size fits all”. WELLfest embraces that we are each unique and therefore have our own interpretation of what being healthy means.

 

To explore traditional, holistic, natural and complementary modalities, all in one open, friendly and safe environment you need to visit one of the 2014 expos:

 

 

Auckland              20/21 September

New Plymouth   1/2 November

 

For more information or to exhibit at WELLfest, www.wellfest.co.nz is the place to go.
