A healthy person is a person who is free on all levels: physical, emotional, and mental.
Homeopathic and Vitamin Therapy
Homeopathic medicines stimulate the body to heal itself. They have been used effectively in clinical practice all over the world for 200 years. When asking the patient to describe symptoms, the homeopath wants to go beyond such blanket terms as "rheumatism" or "asthma" and to discover how that particular condition presents in you as an individual in your own unique response to the disease process. Family history, past and present illness, emotional difficulties, individual sensitivities and many other aspects of the patient are discussed. The homeopath assists the patient to understand how seemingly separate symptoms can be related. The homeopath then chooses a homeopathic medicine that matches as closely as possible to the symptoms.
Vega Machine Allergy Testing
Vega testing is a diagnostic screening technique developed by Dr. Helmut Schimmel, a German medical doctor. The Vega Test method takes advantage of the fundamental principles of energetic theory which builds on the idea that the body has a measurable energetic field that is directly related to health. By developing the technique that measures the energetic output from various points on the finger or toe, we have a diagnostic technique that surpasses the limitations of conventional biochemical testing.
The Vega Test is very simple. The Vega machine outputs a low level electrical current which runs through an electrode held in one of the patient’s hands. The electromagnetic pulses travel through the patient’s body and is measured by the doctor with the aid of a hand held measuring stylus in order to detect imbalances that might cause present illness or contribute towards future disease. The detection of energy level imbalances in the body is essential for providing an early warning system for potential disruption in chemical balance. Balance can be restored using holistic therapies.
What information does the Vega Test provide?
The Vega Test can provide very specific information about your health. Commonly performed tests include the Comprehensive Organ test and the Food Sensitivity test. The Comprehensive Organ test screens for chemical sensitivities, vitamin, mineral, and enzyme deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, specific organ malfunctions, malignant tendencies, toxicities, etc. The Food Sensitivity test determines the body’s reactions to 160 different foods. The Vega Test can also determine what homeopathic, herbal formulations, supplements and or vitamins, will be tolerated by and be effective for the patient.
Kirsten Skafte's VEGA machine has been inspected and approved by Health Canada for it's use.
Homeopathic remedies reinforce the body’s natural ability to remove toxins and waste byproducts, without harmful side effects. Remedies work by stimulating the body's natural processes of elimination to cleanse itself of poisons, from environmental pollution, substance abuse, poor diet, allergens, pollutants like harmful heavy metals, parasites and can even remove toxins from stress, mental imbalances and chemical changes.
Homeopathic remedies will assist in the body's natural cleaning process by stimulating the liver, intestines, kidneys and skin to eliminate toxins from the body. The remedies will improve blood circulation, support healthy weight management, promote healthy energy levels, promote healthy skin, support healthy liver functioning, improve mood, give a sense of well being and above all support healthy immune system resulting into fewer illnesses. The great thing about Homeopathic detox is that it rebuilds and strengthens the immune system and can be incorporated with other regimens without any conflict.
Each person will react individually to hormonal changes because our systems are unique. Our own sensitivity level and history of hormonal issues along with many other factors, including genetics and our emotional state, create our personal picture of health. This is why homeopathy is an ideal way of balancing and supporting all types of hormonal issues including Pre-Menstrual Syndrome including Mood Swings, Irritability, Weepiness, Anxiety, Painful Menses, Heavy Bleeding, Bloating, Post-Partum Depression and Post Menopausal Depression, Perimenopause and Menopause Symptoms including Hot Flashes, Night Sweats Insomnia, Memory Loss, Fatigue and Weight Gain.
Homeopathy not only addresses the imbalance of your hormones, but heals the underlying mental or emotional pain that you may be harboring underneath. This phenomenal system creates a sense of equilibrium by healing on a deep level, rather than just treating or suppressing outward symptoms. With the correct homeopathic remedy, the body and mind will regain the vitality and balance it once had without the use of chemicals or guesswork on our systems.
After almost 3 years "dealing with " a parasite I'd picked up in the Dominican Republic...Kirsten recommended probiotics...and the parasites are now "history"!! I'm so thankful!
I am very happy with the service.
Kirsten is so wonderful and very helpful.
I always leave her office with answers...that actually make sense.
Living an optimally healthy lifestyle (diet, exercise, sleep, etc.) provides the best conditions for the body to both prevent and heal from disease states. The optimum pathway to recovery from illness takes into account all of these issues. Individual chemical, dietary, environmental, lifestyle and psychological factors should be addressed. Treatment is different for every individual as they have a different set of contributing factors.
