WHAT ARE NATURAL REMEDIES, HERBAL REMEDIES, AND NATURAL MEDICINES?
Natural remedies, herbal and home remedies are all simply natural medicines and home cures for alternative health and holistic wellness. Natural remedies and herbal medicines have been used for centuries to cure many health problems that we suffer with today.
WHAT IS NATURAL HEALING OR HOLISTIC HEALTH?
It is any form of healing, that is outside the realm of modern scientific based conventional medicine. It is also a subject that is very controversial. Many pharmaceutical companies suggest this form of treatment is nothing but ‘quackery’ (or unproven medical practices.) I am sure they would say this. They cannot make money from something they cannot patent or label as their own. They certainly wouldn’t endorse cures we can make for ourselves. There are different aspects of natural healing and alternative therapies that focus on particular parts of your mind, body and life. Some of these therapies date back several thousand years and others are newer theories that have gained in popularity over the past century.
WHY SHOULD I USE NATURAL TREATMENTS AND REMEDIES?
Due to increasing side effects of prescription drugs, many people are now shifting toward alternative therapies for the cure and treatment of common health problems. Natural remedies are one of the alternative methods used for the treatment of common diseases at home. For natural home remedies, the kitchen is a great place to start. It has almost all the medicines needed to deal with common ailments.
BENEFITS OF NATURAL REMEMDIES
Natural treatments are simple, inexpensive with no side effects and no chemicals. They usually contain only all natural ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, herbs, roots, minerals and spices. Natural remedies can be used effectively for the treatment of wide range of ailments like boosting immune system, preventing hair loss, skin infections, acne or dandruff, treating aches, pains or cuts, burns and lots more.
HOW SHOULD I APPROACH SPECIFIC HEALTH PROBLEMS?
Promoting the whole body while treating a specific health problem will help to heal the core causes of the illness. Healthy foods, herbal remedies and nutritional supplements are some of the tools that can help to accelerate the treatment, by enhancing our bodies' own healing power. It is important to note, however, that if you have a health issue, you should not try to cure yourself without the guidance of a qualified health professional. Try to find one who is open-minded to alternative therapies and will work with you together on this health problem.
WHO CAN TAKE NATURAL REMEDIES?
Virtually everyone, including young children, can take them. We highly recommend consulting with a qualified natural practitioner about the details of your specific case. Of course you should ALWAYS consult your doctor before stopping or changing any prescription drug regime.
WHAT ARE EAR CANDLES?
Ear Candling is an ancient natural therapy that has been used traditionally by the Egyptians, Chinese, Indians & Tibetans for over 3000 years. Typically, ear candles were placed in the outer ear then ignited to produce smoke & warmth that enters the ear canal, bringing spiritual energy & soothing herbal essences into the ear. Their historic roots can be traced back to the Indians of North & South America. Native American cultures have a long history of using ear candling techniques for spiritual & therapeutic benefits. Today, ear candling is popular all over the world. It is used by individuals as a natural home remedy & practitioners as an alternative therapy.
ARE EAR CANDLES DANGEROUS?
It is very important to read the instructions carefully before use. It is even more important not to ear candle by yourself. You must always have a partner to help ear candle for you. Adult supervision is required at all times. Always use caution with fire. A protective towel must be used at all times. Ear candles are not a medical device. Please consult your health professional to treat all medical conditions.
DO EAR CANDLES REMOVE EAR WAX?
Ear Candles are not proven to remove wax in the ear. Most people use ear candles to promote rest and relaxation. Some people claim that ear candles soften and dry up ear wax and hence promote the natural removal of ear wax.
WHAT DO EAR CANDLES DO?
Ear candles have a purely spiritual function. Ear candling can help rest, balance and relax the mind and body as well as improve your overall well being. The smoke, warmth & essential oils that pass into the ear canal can have a calming & soothing effect on the user. As well as being a great way to relieve tension naturally, some practitioners report that ear candles produce a light suction action (chimney effect) and the movement of the flame creates a vibration of air in the ear candle, generating a massage-like effect on the eardrum. This has been said to induce a pleasant feeling of warmth & balance of pressure in the ears, forehead & sinuses. It is a common fact that using cotton ear buds or ear wax spoons is a dangerous way to remove ear wax and simply pushes the ear wax further into the ear canal. This can actually cause a blocked ear especially when ear buds are used everyday. When their ears are blocked some people seek the help of professional ear wax removal by syringing the ear canal which is a harsh and sometimes uncomfortable treatment.
EAR CANDLING BENEFITS
Ear candles are used by many as a gentle and natural home remedy for relaxation, mediation and overall wellness. Alternative medicines such as ear candles have been used by people around the world for centuries. Many cultures have been ear candling or ear coning, such as Hopi Indians, as an effective healing and relaxation ritual. Some looking for natural ear remedies use ear candles as a holistic solution for ear cleaning.

HOW TO USE EAR CANDLES / EAR CANDLING INSTRUCTIONS
WHAT YOU NEED
• 1 pair of ear candles
• A partner (never ear candle alone)
• Bowl of water
Create a relaxed atmosphere. The room should be draught-free, quiet with soft lighting. Lie down on one side in a comfortable position supporting your head with a pillow. Use the towel to cover your hair and neck. It is recommended to do an ear candling session before you go to bed to ensure rest & relaxation after the process.
LIGHT CANDLE AND PLACE IN EAR
Light the ear candle at the unlabeled end and vertically place the non-burning and gently into the outer ear passage. Gently twist the ear candle until it is sealed in place. You will hear the pleasant crackling and hissing of the flame when the ear candle is placed properly. Smoke, warmth and herbal essential oils will then pass into your ear canal. Close your eyes and relax your face, neck and shoulder muscles. You or your partner should hold the ear candle gently in place throughout the process.
CUT ASH INTO BOWL
As the candle burns down have your partner closely monitor the flame & ash. When the ash is 3cm in length, using the water bowl under the flame, have your partner cut the ash off with the scissors. Ear candles DO NOT self extinguish. Once the flame reaches the STOP LINE carefully remove the ear candle & extinguish it in the bowl of water.
REPEAT AND REST
Repeat the process on the other ear. Once your ear candling session is complete you should rest for at least 15 minutes.
Initial session - 1 treatment daily for up to 7 days. Maintenance sessions - every 3-4 weeks.
WARNING: ADULT SUPERVISION IS REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES. ALWAYS USE CAUTION WITH FIRE. A PROTECTIVE TOWEL MUST BE USED AT ALL TIMES. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR HEALTH PROFESSIONAL TO TREAT ALL MEDICAL CONDITIONS.
HOW DO DETOX FOOT PATCHES WORK?
Detox Foot Patches work while you sleep to remove dangerous toxins and excess fluids from your body in a safe, natural way. Unlike other detoxification products, with Byron Bay Detox Foot Patches, you can actually see the results on the pads in the morning. You'll actually feel the difference in your energy and overall wellbeing.
WHY USE THEM ON OUR FEET?
According to eastern medicine, the human body has more than 360 acupuncture points, with over 60 found on the soles of the feet alone. These are the reflexive zones of our major internal organs. Toxins, which can lead to many degenerative diseases and adverse medical conditions, travel downwards in the body during the day and accumulate in these reflexive zones.
After decades of medical research in this area, it was discovered that bamboo vinegar essence found in certain trees had the ability to absorb toxins through the acupuncture points located on the soles of the feet. Byron Bay Detox Foot Patches contain this key bamboo vinegar ingredient, as well as other natural extracts.
The feet are also called 'the mirror of the body', as the various reflex points and nerve endings can traced to areas on the feet. This is what reflexology is based on. Ancient Chinese Reflexology teaches that stimulation and toxicity release from these sensitive mirror points, may also lead to vitality and wellness for the associated body parts. At the very least, the removal of toxic build-ups in the body can only promote increased health as the body processes and immune system do not have to be taxed so hard to maintain optimum regulatory functions.
BENEFITS OF DETOX PROGRAMMES
• Removes dangerous toxins, metals and chemicals from your body
• Assists in the natural cleansing of your lymphatic system
• Help strengthen your immune system and metabolic functions
• Improve quality and duration of sleep.
• Reduce swelling & water retention in the body.
• Supports healthy blood circulation
• Improves the quality and duration of your sleep - awake feeling refreshed
• Helps alleviate minor aches, pains and swelling in the body (excess moisture)
• Increase alertness and reduce fatigue.
WHAT ARE THE FOOT PATCHES MADE OF?
High Quality Powerful Detoxifying Ingredients of Byron Bay Detox Foot Patches are;
Organic Bamboo Vinegar - organic bamboo vinegar is a natural liquid, derived from the condensation procured in bamboo charcoal production. It is a mild compound that has a variety of health benefits that especially aid in detoxification, sanitation and improvements in circulation.
Vitamin C – acts as an antioxidant by protecting the body against oxidative stress.
Orange oil - is an essential oil produced by cells inside the rind of an orange fruit.
Tourmaline mineral – which emits negative ions. Negative Ions have been shown in scientific studies to restore balance to the nervous system, boost immunity improve metabolism, and to assist the body in healing its self naturally.
Plant extracts – Our Foot Patches contain NO FILLERS OR CHEMICALS
Negative Ions have been shown in scientific studies to restore balance to the nervous system, boost immunity improve metabolism, and to assist the body in healing it’s self naturally. It is well known that consuming more alkaline foods, i.e. fruits and vegetables, is beneficial to human health. An acidic PH balance of the body, on the other hand, makes the body weak and susceptible to sickness. Acidification of the blood, which is caused by the loss of electrons, can be prevented by Negative Electric Ions that contain an abundant amount of electrons improving the body's immunity and resistance to illnesses. This is the reason Negative Electric Ions products are becoming more and more popular nowadays.
BENEFITS OF NEGATIVE IONS
* Strengthens the body's immune system
* Improves the permeability of the cell's prototype plasma membranes (metabolism)
* Reinforces collagen (tissues that are resilient and tension-related)
* Strengthen the functions of autonomic nerves.
DETOX FOOT PATCH INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove the largest part of the backing from the adhesive sheet.
2. Shake, then place the Foot Patch onto the centre of the adhesive sheet, making sure that the writing is facing toward the sheet.
3. Place the patch onto the soles of your feet just before bedtime. Use the Reflexology chart and apply to your troubled areas.
4. Allow 5-8 hours for toxins and fluids to be fully absorbed from your body before removing the Foot Patches. Do not wear socks and avoid overheating.
The patches can be effectively placed over other parts of the body where you are experiencing pain, discomfort or swelling. Can be used on children aged 3 or above. Do not place over open wounds or eyes.
HOW LONG SHOULD YOU USE DETOX PATCHES FOR?
This really depends upon the individual and how many toxins are present. We suggest that the detox patches should be used as long as toxins are still present in the body. We normally recommend our one-week detox program that will give you 7 days of patches that should be once per day. If, after this, you feel that you would benefit from a longer period, then you can continue with another week programme after a 2-3 day rest.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT TO SEE WHEN I REMOVE THE DETOX PATCHES?
The patches should change colour to be a dark brown or even black. Please note if the patch is still stuck to the bottom of your feet in the morning. If not, then your feet may be too hot and the patch not sticking properly. Please see the before and after photo here.
WHAT IF I DO NOT SEE A CHANGE IN COLOUR AFTER 1 WEEK?
Some people will notice the colour of the patches does not get lighter after 1 week. This can be because your feet may be too hot at night. Please ensure you do not use electric blankets or bed socks when using the foot patches. Please also make sure your bedroom is not too hot.
