Below you will find information about some of the most common conditions treated in our clinic.
Eczema: Eczema is a general term for skin rashes which are characterised by redness, dryness, itching, crusting, oozing, blistering and possibly bleeding.
Asthma:Asthma is a chronic, inflammatory lung disease characterized by recurrent breathing problems. People with asthma has acute episodes when the air passages in the lungs get narrower, and breathing becomes more difficult. These problems are caused by an over sensitivity of the lungs and airways, which overreact to certain triggers and become inflamed and clogged. The symptoms are sporadic attacks of shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, and a tight feeling over the chest. In orthodox medical terms there are 2 main types of the disease : INTRINSIC , caused by an infection in persons with susceptible bronchi; EXTRINSIC, where it is caused by an allergic reaction.

As long as the body is in balance Candida remains under control, but as soon as the right conditions appear, then the fungus multiplies at an alarming rate, and a full blown candida infestation develops. It is much more common in women , but does occur in men where it is usually sexually transmitted.
