Candace McNaughton, ND wrote in to provide the hacks from her great talk, Health Hacks- Natural Medicine Quick Fixes, in a list form. Enjoy!
Following are the eight health hacks presented at the third Ignite Seattle. Keep in mind that these are meant to be examples of some quick-acting natural approaches rather than representative of naturopathic treatment. Treatment plans are always more holistic and complex.
Overeating– Hoodia gordonii, 250-500 mg twenty minutes before a meal. Eat less that meal
Afternoon slumps – 15-20 grams protein in the morning balances blood sugar
Migraine – 150-200 mg Butterbur can avert migraine in process.
Diabetes – Gymnema and other plants balance blood sugar. Gymnema on tongue blocks sweet receptors.
Fatigue – B12/BComplex intramuscular injections. Feel energy boost right away.
Traveler’s Diarrhea – Probiotics like lactobacillis acidophilus can prevent or stop this condition.
Smoking Cessation – Lobelia fills nicotine receptors, calms anxiety, and is a muscle relaxant.
Anxiety – California poppy, hops, oats, valerian, skullcap, passionflower all calm mental & physical symptoms.
