Our approach to health is holistic and we foster the balance of body, mind and soul in a natural way. We believe a good nutritional foundation and emotional health should be the foundation of health. We compliment our treatments with nutraceuticals, nutrition, herbal and homoeopathic remedies.

Scopes of practice

1.     Electrodermal screening

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

It is a 30 Point testing on acupuncture points of both hands and feet – testing liver, pancreas, spleen, sinuses etc. Each testing point has an energy reading that tells us what the health status is of an organ.   By testing the energy levels in the various organs one gauge what the health status is of the patient.  Specific health issues can then be addressed to restore health and balance. If you want to know how your organs function – this is a must.

2.   Natural weight management programme

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 + (diet excluded R300)

We have various diets to suit the different constitutions  of the different patients. One diet might work for on patient and not for another one.  I do a proper assessment and also do blood tests to be able to put  a patient on a sustainable lifestyle eating plan to lose weight and improve general health. We complement our lifestyle programmes with natural products.

3.   Food intolerance testing – IGE and IGG

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625 (2 tests available ie. Test for 90 foods ; Test for 271 foods (payable to Lab)

An allergy is an adverse reaction (hypersensitivity) resulting from exposure to a normally harmless substance (allergen). This substance may be a drug, a food, or some other environmental agent such as dust, dust-mites, pets, or pollens. The reaction may manifest itself in various ways including skin rashes, sneezing, swelling of the tissue or mucous membranes, and a number of very violent reactions that can result in anaphylactic shock or death. Adverse reactions to food can cause a range of symptoms throughout the body. Some of these reactions are mediated through the immune system by IgE, and some by IgG. Various systems in the body can be affected by allergies like: skin, digestive system, airways, skeletal, muscular and neurological systems. Eczema, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, migraine and general pains can be sorted out.

4.   Natural detoxification eating programme

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

What are toxins?

Toxins are harmful substances to the human body and interfere with normal metabolic processes and suppress the immune system.

Examples of toxin

  • Liver toxicants: alcohol, drugs, solvents, pesticides, herbicides and  food additives
  • Heavy metal exposure: petrol, diesel, jewelers, battery makers and printers
  • Microbial compounds: toxins like amines produced by bacteria and yeast in our gut
  • Breakdown products from protein metabolism: toxic waste from protein metabolism iseliminated via kidneys.

Effect of toxins on your health

  • Migraine
  • Fibromyalgia
  • General arthralgias
  • Chemical sensitivities
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Allergies
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

Toxin overload and detoxification

 The liver is the most important detoxification organ, but the following organs are also involved in the detoxification process like: skin, kidneys, lungs, intestines, genital organs and hormonal system.

 The body will eliminate toxins either by neutralizing them, or excreting them via urine and/or stools and/or excreting toxins through lungs and skin. Toxins that are not eliminated get stored in connective tissues and fat stores. These toxins can stay in the body for up to 25 years.

 When toxins are not eliminated properly because of overload you feel fatigued and sluggish. The liver starts with detoxification of connective tissue toxins at 01H00 and if there are still some toxins in your bloodstream when you wake up you have a hangover (headache, irritable and fatigue). 

The detoxifying enzymes are dependent on vitamins, minerals and trace elements like Vitamin B3 , iron, molybdenum and selenium. If you are deficient of these nutrients you will not detoxify properly and more toxins will be stored in the connective tissues.

5.  Natural desensitizing for allergies and hay fever

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

Sinus and hay fever are 99% allergy related. You can either suppress the allergy with cortisone and anti-histamine or raise the tolerance level for those specific allergens and get the patient off chronic treatment. Hay fever and sinus patients don’t have to suffer forever and neither do they have to take medication till the end of days.

6.   Leaky gut programme

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

The gut wall can become leaky for a number of reasons:

Alcohol (the by-product acetaldehyde is associated with auto-immune diseases) and aspirin irritate the gut lining, as does a protein called gluten found in wheat; a deficiency of cell-building nutrients, like vitamin A, zinc, protein and essential fats, can result in a poor gut-wall structure; antibiotics; caffeine; paracites; chemicals like preservatives; NSAIMS; cortisone; high refined carbohydrate diet; hormones;    low digestive enzyme production; heavy metal toxicity; food allergies; an overgrowth of the wrong bacteria or fungi, such as Candida albicans, can burrow into the intestinal wall, irritating it and causing increased permeability. Once the gut wall is permeable, perfectly normal foods can become toxic to the body.

 7.   Lifestyle assessment (blood tests)

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625 (blood test fees excluded)

Various blood tests are available: cholesterol, diabetes, hormones, drug testing, viruses, bacteria, vitamin and mineral deficiencies etc.

8.   Natural hormone replacement

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 + medicine

When hormone replacement is needed I advocate natural hormone replacement. I will only support conventional hormone replacement if no natural intervention helps and I know through genetic testing that there is no cancer risk. There are various herbal remedies available for menopause and the right one can be recommended through consultation. When the patient uses the right remedy, they can fly through menopause without all the hot flushes, depression and anxiety.

9.   Anti-ageing programme

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

Centenarians will become part of our future. You will get those centenarians that will function well independently and then those that will be dependent on others. Today we have all the technology to assist in a natural way for patients to have a high quality life till the end. Proper assessments and a lifestyle plan are tailored to the individual’s needs.

Genetic profiling is strongly recommended here.  Read more in the section on genetic profiling.

10.   Fibromyalgia programme

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

 Fibromyalgia is defined as an oxygen deficiency in the muscle. Fibromyalgia is not arthritis (joined degeneration) but a condition with various pain points on the body. With the right eating plan, homeopathic remedies, ozone treatments and nutraceuticals these patients can experience optimal health again.

11.   Ritalin free kids programme

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

A proper assessment is necessary before a child is diagnosed as hyperactive. The majority children with ADD and ADHD have food intolerances or sensitivities. When these children had followed a hypoallergenic diet, 82% of these children showed great improvement. Drugs like Ritalin and Concerta should be the last choice and not the first port of call.  Your hyperactive child can live a normal life without drugs.

12.   Mercury detoxification programme

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625 + medicine

Mercury levels should be check especially if patients have had mercury fillings for a long time and have physical or mental fatigue. When the mercury levels are high we recommend the fillings to be removed by an approved dentist for mercury removals. After the removal of the mercury fillings I will start an oral chelation programme to assist the patient in restoring health and energy.

13.   Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

CFS presents with various of non-specific symptoms, with a large variation between patients. The majority of cases develop over a long period of time (6 months or more) and then suddenly and are accompanied by a ‘flu-like’ illness. Fatigue for longer than 6 months is a major indication but all other known causes of fatigue be conclusively ruled out.

The laboratory tests that are used exclude other possible explanations of the fatigue and associated symptoms. The majority of  CFS pastients will have a positive result for the Epstein-Barr, Coxsakie and / or Cytomegalo Virus. The diagnostic criteria are based on specific symptoms, numerous other symptoms are associated with CFS. Symptoms can include chills and night sweats, allergies or sensitivities to various food or chemicals, irritable bowel syndrome, bloating, nausea, visual disturbances or eye pain, chest pain and problems such as depression, irritability, anxiety and panic attacks.

CFS affects various systems in the body:  digestive system, immune system, endocrine system and psychological and emotional issues. These can differ from patient to patient and must be evaluated individually.

Treatment are patient specific and all the above systems have to be restored to normal function. Only homeopathic medicine, herbal medicine and specific nutraceuticals are used. Other treatment options that are considered are Rife, Bemer treatments and Ozone treatments. These modalities increase energy levels in the cells. My treatment approach has restored many CFS patients with health, vitality and wellness. 

14.   Genetic profiling

First consultation 45-60min R1000 (excluding costs to Lab)

 If you are concerned about your future health, then genetic profiling is for you.  With genetic screening we can access your inherited risks.  When we know what your risks are we can address those risks.   You can manipulate 70-80% of your inherited risks through lifestyle modification and supplementation. This is a must for all anti-aging patients.

15.   Stool tests

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

 A Stool test is a valuable tool  in assessing the digestive health of a patient. From the results one can see:

  • Flora status
  • Pathogen status
  • Inflammatory status of the digestive track
  • Candida status
  • Helicobacter pylori
  • Celiac screening
  • Paracites

The comprehensive Gut health test includes:

  1. Natural flora and pathogen analysis
  2. Calprotectin ( inflammation marker); and
  3. Secretory IGA ( Inflammation enzyme)

To do the celiac test:  Eat gluten again before taking the test to see the reaction.

16.   Chronic disease evaluation and medication fine tuning

First consultation up to 45-60 mins R945 & follow-up consultation up to 30 minutes R625

Assisting the chronically ill by assessing their health and drugs and tailor a lifestyle programme and fine tune their mediation. James has the knowledge and experience to substitute harmful drugs with bad side effects with natural remedies where possible to give people back their health and quality of life.
