Ear Candling

Do You Suffer From…

Excess earwax?

Tinnitus (ears ringing)?

Sinus congestion?

Hi, we are a Naturopathy clinic located in the Melbourne CBD. We offer ear candling and gentle lymphatic massage treatments to assist you to restore, rejuvenate and revitalise your health and wellbeing.

What Is Ear Candling?

Ear candling is a clearing therapy that is used very successfully for head, ears and upper respiratory health ailments. Ear candling is also fantastic before flying. Ear candling is an intensive, pleasant and completely painless procedure. The inside of your ears have a lot of crevices where material can build up, accumulate and impact over the years. Ear candling helps you to draw out wax that is difficult to extract using cotton buds or fingers.

Ear Candling History

For hundreds of years the American Hopi Indian tribes have used the gentle art of ear candling to protect and cleanse their ears. The technique originated with the Egyptians, who apparently used reeds and the Chinese have also used this method for centuries.

How Does Ear Candling Work?

Ear candles are placed gently in your ear, the outer end is lit and gentle lymphatic massage is applied around your neck area. The flame from the ear candle creates a gentle warm air vacuum in your auditory canal that draws out old wax, debris and infection. The lymphatic massage assists the lymphatic system to detoxify any toxins around this area. You will hear a slight crackling sound as the impacted wax is gently vacuumed out.

Ear Candling Consultations

Ear candling consultations are available by appointment, following a brief assessment with one our qualified Naturopaths. We only use 100% pure beeswax and unbleached cotton ear candles. In our experience most people are amazed at all the material that comes out of their ears.

Blastocystis Hominis

Do You Suffer From…

Constipation?

Bloating?

Low energy?

Hi, we are a Naturopathy clinic located in the Melbourne CBD. We specialise in helping people with Blastocystis hominis infections, Parasite infections, Candida Overgrowth, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and digestive problems.

What Is Blastocystis Hominis?

The intestinal parasite Blastocystis hominis is a protozoan, which is a single-cell organism that is larger and more complex than bacteria. These types of parasites are capable of multiplying within the host. Blastocystis hominis infections occur directly via the faecal–oral route, with direct person-to-person transmission uncommon. Other common intestinal parasites include Dientamoeba fragilis, Entamoeba histolytica, Giardia intestinalis, Cryptosporidium parvum, cestodes (tapeworms), trematodes (flukes), hookworms, and various nematodes (roundworms).

What Are Blastocystis Hominis Symptoms?

  • Constipation
  • Watery diarrhoea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Excessive gas
  • Bloating
  • Dark circles under eyes
  • Itchy anus
  • Itchy skin
  • Skin rashes
  • Children failure to thrive
  • Septic arthritis (Infective arthritis)
  • Low energy
  • Low immunity
  • Iron deficiency (Anaemia)
  • Depression
  • Low mood

How Do You Get Blastocystis Hominis?

Blastocystis hominis infections can occur from contaminated food, contaminated water, poor personal hygiene and travellers to tropical countries. Blastocystis hominis can be symptomatic and asymptomatic in people.

Blastocystis Hominis Treatment

Blastocystis hominis is a pathogen which does not belong in your body. In our experience there are always symptoms that people experience when they have a Blastocystis hominis infection. These symptoms are not necessarily gut symptoms and disappear once the parasite has been eliminated. Unfortunately a lot mainstream Doctors tell clients that this parasite is normal and doesn’t need to be treated, or use medications that are proven to be unsuccessful. Parasites living in your body drain your energy and can affect your health on many different levels – emotionally, physically, mentally. In order for true healing to take place you need to remove the parasite and then heal your gut. Our Naturopaths work with your Doctors for the best treatments available to eradicate Blastocystis hominis from your body once and for all.

Flat tummy?

Candida Overgrowth

Do You Suffer From…

Brain fog?

Excessive smelly gas?

Sugar cravings?

Hi, we are a Naturopathy clinic located in the Melbourne CBD. We specialise in helping people suffering with Candida Overgrowth, Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and digestive problems.

What Is Candida?

Candidiasis is a general term for yeast and fungal infections, most commonly caused by several species of Candida, the most predominant being Candida albicans. Candida is a common non-pathogenic organism in human microflora that can affect areas such as the gut, genitals, skin, throat and mouth. Opportunistic overgrowth of candida is associated with a switch to pathogenesis, where it may trigger inflammation, immune suppression and localised tissue irritation and damage, including increased intestinal permeability and skin/mucosal irritation in affected areas.

Candida spp can be difficult to treat, as it forms a biofilm around itself, allowing immune evasion. Also, fungal cell walls contain mannose glycoprotein, which is immunosuppressive, allowing it to locally adapt to the conditions of the host, playing a role in fungal persistence. Also, prolonged treatment with anti-fungal medications can cause candida spp to adapt and make it resistant to treatment.

What Are Some Candida Overgrowth Symptoms?

  • Bloating
  • Excessive smelly gas
  • Poor concentration
  • Brain fog
  • Depression and low mood
  • White coating on your tongue
  • Thrush infections
  • Food allergies
  • Skin rashes
  • Low energy
  • Low immunity
  • Digestive upsets
  • Headaches
  • Finger and toe nail infections

How Do You Get A Candida Overgrowth?

Generally, a healthy immune system keeps Candida levels under control. However modern diets and lifestyles can deplete your immune system. When your delicate balance of bowel flora is disturbed, it can create an environment where Candida thrives.

Factors That Can Cause Candida Overgrowth

  • Alcohol
  • Antibiotics
  • Steroid medications (ventolin, cortisone)
  • Oral contraceptive pill
  • Diet high in sugar and carbohydrates
  • Stress
  • Illness
  • Smoking

Candida Overgrowth Treatments

When a Candida overgrowth takes hold, it excretes harmful toxins that circulate throughout the body, further weakening the immune system and creating havoc. It can also lead to a condition called 'Leaky Gut Syndrome', which causes food intolerances and many other health problems. A Candida infection can become persistent, and is certainly something you'd hope to avoid. If you have an infection it's important to get effective treatment so you can return to feeling healthy once more.

In our experience candida is easily treatable once we know what candida species you have via a stool test. Our Naturopaths will put you on a specific treatment plan and diet, to bring you back to a state of wellness.

Better moods?
