Many people take excellent care of their car and ignore their own body. And yet you can trade your car in after so many years while you only have one body. Your car only drives you around for short periods of time and your body works for you every second of every day of your life. As well as driving you around, your body also renews itself and does a pretty good job of it. From the top of your head to the soles of your feet, your body is constantly regenerating itself. Here is some of the stuff that goes on without you realizing:

  • The gut lining (inside your intestines) is replaced every 2 to 3 days!
  • You liver has the capacity to regenerate itself even after 70% has been removed!
  • Your lungs are only 3 weeks old!
  • The surface of your skin is replaced every couple of weeks. Skin cells renew faster after a gentle injury, like pulling off a bandaid!
  • Damaged nerves can regrow at a rate of 2 to 3mm per day!
  • Some of the cells inside your stomach are renewed every few minutes, while the rest of your stomach lining is renewed every 5 days!
  • The surface cornea of your eyeball is completely renewed every 7 to 10 days!
  • Every 110 days you have turned over your entire volume of red blood cells!
  • White blood cells last for 30 days!

And so it goes on. Isn’t it time to pay your body the respect it deserves? If you don’t do it nobody else will do it for you!

Here is a story of one of our clients who had a wakeup call and started to take notice of what was happening to her:

 “I came to the Purple House after my life had taken a turn for the worse. I had always been an active person and thrived on my independence. I have been a teacher for years and in my spare time I used to bushwalk, garden and renovate my home.

One day I fell on my back and it hurt. After experiencing stiffness for a week I went to the doctor. I was diagnosed with sciatica. The doctor suggested a routine blood test.When the results came back it showed that my cholesterol levels were high and I was low in iron. I was prescribed cholesterol lowering drugs and iron tablets. After a while I started to develop more and more strange symptoms. The pain got worse and now I was given anti-epileptic drugs for nerve pain. I started to develop weakness in the legs and finally had to get round with the help of a walking stick. Because I became physically inactive I developed high blood pressure and had to go on medication for that. I was told it would be for the rest of my life and that is the exact point where the alarm bells started ringing.

In three short years I had gone from a healthy fifty something, independent woman to a wreck.

A friend told me to go and see the people at the Purple House and when I rang up it was decided that I needed a Biomedx session.

I had to fast for two hours and stay off all non urgent medication the night before. I had become so dependant that a friend had to drive me to Forth.

Peter analysing a live blood sample with a client

Peter then did tests on my urine and saliva specimens and we looked at my live blood on the computer screen. Seeing my own red and white blood cells was a real eye opener. Even though I wasn’t feeling too good, I was told that my blood picture looked fairly healthy which was heartening.

From the urine and saliva Peter could tell that I wasn’t drinking anywhere near the amount of water that my body needed and this was creating a lot of stress on the kidneys. There were other imbalances but the thing that stands out was that the information was very thorough and the changes I had to make to my diet were easy.

I was told that the original cholesterol number wasn’t all that high and to get a second opinion. I went to a doctor who agreed for me to leave off the cholesterol lowering drugs. As I started to drink more water my energy levels increased. I had a couple of treatments for the sciatica and after that I was able to go for walks again.

I now realize that some of the muscle weakness and other strange symptoms I experienced were a side effect of the cholesterol drugs because my strength returned fairly quickly.

The iron levels are now completely normal and that is without iron tablets. The urine and saliva tests showed that my stomach acid levels were very low, so I wasn’t digesting my food properly. I now supplement with Betaine HCL every meal and the fact that my iron levels are normal and have remained normal since my Biomedx session, convinced me that this works.

Now I am going stronger than ever, and I will never take my health for granted anymore! So thank you to all at the Purple House!”

I hope this story inspires you to do whatever it takes to wake up the magic inside you!

Listen to people who encourage you, and ignore bad advice. Have regular treatments from people that you trust. Do your own research. Find a second opinion. Take time out. Don’t pretend you are in good health when you aren’t or keep ignoring the warning signs!

If you saw a red light on the dashboard indicating your car needs oil, wouldn’t you put oil in your car at the nearest service station? You wouldn’t stop and stick paper over the warning light to make it go away! The same applies to the body: if you ignore it’s warning signs you will feel the consequences. If you wait long enough you will end up with chronic health problems. And if the original imbalance isn’t addressed it will keep on recurring. We are a work in progress and when you offer your body the right solutions you will never be disappointed!
