Here are the dangers of cortisone that I found in the medical reference book in the hospital. What the doctors don’t tell you! The main three side effects are adrenal gland atrophy, immunosuppression and detrimental psychiatric effects.

The damaging effects on the immune system mean an increased susceptibility to infections including fungal and viral.

Psychiatric side-effects listed are: nightmares, insomnia, irritability, mood swings, suicidal thoughts, psychotic reactions and depression.

Furthermore cortisone has been found to cause hypertension (high blood pressure), sodium and water retention and potassium loss.

I’ll sum up some the research that I’ve done.

Steroids such as cortisone mimic the action of the adrenal glands, the body’s most powerful regulator of general metabolism. The problem is, like antibiotics, steroids appear to be a miracle “cure”. In cases of arthritis or asthma, the wheeze, the swelling and the pain go away so doctors turn to steroids first, rather than last in attack for anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effects. Far from being a wonder drug “cure all”, steroids cannot cure one single condition. All they do is suppress your body’s ability to express normal response (like an alarm in a car that I told you about). Unfortunately, what doctors don’t tell you is the immediate, devastating and permanent damage. We are only now realizing just how quickly damage can occur even from small dosages.

Alternatives

There are however natural alternatives to cortisone.
• Wheat and barley grass has P4D1, which has exceptional anti-inflammatory properties, amazingly even more powerful than those of steroids such as cortisone.
• All green foods and spirulina are high in chlorophyll (anti-inflamatory)
• Flax seeds release pain and inflammation (Omega 3)

You have to be careful with supplements as many of them are actually ineffective due to the nutrients being killed off during manufacturing. For example, super-green powders that would have wheat and barley grass in them are mostly freeze dried that destroys all the goodness. A much better option is making your own wheat grass juice.

Detox

It is also important to improve your body’s ability to absorb the nutrients through various cleansing techniques. Very important as when intestine walls are clogged, liver doesn’t function properly and so on, the supplements are not getting to their intended destination as they should be. At your Health Kinesiology session a tailor made detox regime can be arranged to achieve the best results from your healing program.

Natural Balms

Siberian Health company has a range of wonderful natural anti-inflammatory balms. They are applied to the skin, which make them a lot easier to absorb. This makes them effective even before doing the detox. A warming balm has a pronounced anti-inflammatory, anesthetic and relaxing effect. Improves mobility of joints, stimulates circulation, relieves pain and fatigue in the muscles.

Allergy Work

Allergies can cause a huge ordeal. However, they are very easily addressed with Health Kinesiology. An allergy to anything from food, to dusts, pollens, chemicals and metals can be identified and then quickly and easily treated. The great thing about doing allergy work with Health Kinesiology is that as soon as you find out what you are allergic to, the alergy is gone! I just love it
