Q I am constantly battling fatigue, stress, anxiety and depression as I get older. I live a relatively healthy lifestyle in terms of work-life balance, eating healthy and exercising, but I find that there is little in way of alternative therapies down here in the far south, and no one alternative therapy seems to address all of my issues. And to do more than one or two would break my budget. Any suggestions or ideas of what I should look at as a priority in terms of therapy? My medication is constant for hypothyroidism and my doctor won't look at alternative options, and believes the bloodwork doesn't lie, despite my symptoms still being present.

A Gosh, you sound pretty desperate...and you are not alone. Exhaustion is the world epidemic. Unfortunately there is no quick fix -especially as you have your doctor supporting you with medication. It might be helpful to ponder -in relation to your thyroid (throat) -how much you are expressing what you truly feel. If you are saying what you think other people want you to say, is it possible you could experiment with expressing from your truth?
In relation to the exhaustion, anxiety and stress, how are you living each day? You could perhaps start by being more self-caring and self-loving during your day, from the moment you wake up until the moment you go to bed. Going to bed by 9pm I have found makes a huge difference to my energy levels and how I feel during the day. Conversely, how I am with myself during the day affects how well I sleep at night. There are some great articles on all these topics on a free website: www.unimedliving.com

A Hi There,
You sound like many of my patients. Therefore, I am sending you a link to Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation therapy and why it may help you. Basically it helps restore normal physiological function, increasing energy output and raising your bio-oxidative capacity.The effects are very broad and may interest you. It works best as a mono therapy which may suit you.
It is a metabolic therapy and thus very long lasting in its effects.
Hope you enjoy the read.

A Hi there, thank you for your question. We have found that Reflexology can be very effective in helping deal with the symptoms you describe, but also helping to bring the body back into balance. Reflexology can also be more specifically targeted to particular areas of the body, so for instance could help balance thyroid function or blood pressure - just to name a couple. I am based in Auckland, but if you have time, please check the website of our national association - www.reflexology.org.nz - to find a registered professional reflexologist near where you live. If you have any questions in the meantime, please don't hesitate to give me a call. All the best, I hope you find some relief from your symptoms very soon. Kind regards, Jude 021 151 6164

A Hello and thank you for your question and information. Low thyroid function is invariably linked to food intolerance and particularly Proline rich proteins like gluten and casein. Undigested food particles enter the blood and cause an inflammatory immune response, and the inflammatory agents called cytokines and IgG's can also enter the cerebral spinal fluid and travel into the brain to cause the symptoms you describe. A strict Paleo type diet which is grain free and dairy free can help enormously, along with some daily physical activity. If you don't wish to change the way you eat so drastically the technology offered by the Biohawk products allows people to treat their food before eating it, breaking down the proline rich proteins so they no longer cause immune activation. See http://biohawk.com.au/index.html and a specific document on the science here: http://biohawk.com.au/foodintolerance.html Upbeat Health is the NZ importer and distributor of these unique products and if you would like to know more about how they may be able to help you please email or call; jenny@upbeathealth.co.nz 021549191 Kind wish and all the best, Jenny
