Happy New Year 2018! Plans, News and Thoughts for the Year Ahead

Dear Readers,

Happy New Year 2018 – I’m wishing you health and wellness for this year and hope that you all find your own path towards healing!

Thanks for reading this blog, it really means a lot to me and I hope you’ve found some useful information.

For me it’s been a busy past year with new projects in other areas of my life but I’ve still tried to write new articles for the blog whenever I could.

I have a few things planned for the new year ahead and I hope they will be of interest to you…





New Blog Series

I’m planning on starting a new series very soon with the title ‘Tried and Tested’ in which I’ll share my experience with several natural ‘treatments’.

On my own ‘quest for health’ (how I like to call it) I have tried various natural treatments and diets – some of them backed by good science, others…not so much. I’ve used myself as a bit of a guinea pig, so to say.

I’ve done my fare share of following various ‘health gurus’ and I think it could be useful to share my experiences to make it easier for others to sort through what might be legit and what’s more on the ‘quackery’ side of things.

Opening Practice

I am in the very final stages of becoming a Nutritional Therapist and, provided I pass all my final tests, am hoping to open practice in a few months.

I will be specializing in bladder health, with a keen interest in finding root causes of problems and aiming to correct them.

My interest very much lies in functional and holistic nutrition and lifestyle and I aim to stay up-to-date with the latest research and will be using functional testing.

Like that, I’m hoping to be able to help people more thoroughly above and beyond the blog.

Moving Above and Beyond Bladder Health

Everything in the body is connected and therefore we cannot look at just the bladder in isolation.

Therefore, I will be including more general health topics that I feel may be of interest when aiming for better health.

The Usual…

Apart from the above, I will still aim to write regular articles about all aspects related to bladder health, always trying to look at the research as much as possible…

 

All the best for the new year!

    Happy New Year.
    It would be interesting to know if any members have been involved in the Clinical Trials for UROMUNE. It sounds very promising. However, do you have to be clear of an infection when you have the vaccine, or can it be effective even if you have bacteria lurking under a bio film?

      Hi Jacqueline, I don’t know much about this vaccination nor have spoken to anyone who’s tried it. I will have a look. Vaccinations are supposed to ‘train’ the immune system to have antigens against certain pathogens and therefore prevent an infection. However, biofilms hide bacteria from the immune system so my assumption would be that something still would have to be done about those.

    Hi Layla
    Well my head is spinning cause I was diagnosed with IC yesterday. I have been online ever since reading everything I can about this crippling condition that I have suffered with for…well let’s just say I can’t remember not having it. However the worst thing about my history is that I thought it was always a UTI and have been on strong antibiotics of every kind for probably years longer than you have been alive. I am scared to death I have done so much damage that I will never get straightened out. I was just in so much misery and this is all the doctors would offer me. I felt like I was dying anyway so I felt it was worth it at the time to get some kind of relief. I feel kinda lost where in the world do I begin to tackle this? What should I take & eat but who should I see that can test me for: CRP, ESR, as well as do the stool testing? I just feel overwhelmed as I sit here in pain. The dr that diagnosed me didn’t make me feel very hopeful…her suggestion was to just continue to take my Macrobid and that I should call my insurance to find out if they will cover the instillation procedures…? I didn’t feel like this dr is a good fit for me, the way I was treated made my husband angry and he won’t let me return which I agree with. I live in WA state very close to Portland OR and feel like I really need to see someone who can guide me, I just need some relief. I am sorry this post was so long. Thank you for all the info this website has provided and I have no doubt you will be very successful as you work towards this new chapter in your life. Just wish you were where I am and I could be one of your first clients. I will keep in touch and let you know what happens.
