Testimonials – Stomach and bowel distension of 35 years standing, pains in feet, tinnitus, hypercholestermia

Case No. 6, Mr. W, aged 67 – this is a case that was published in Dr. Georgiou’s book entitled “Curing the Incurable with Holistic Medicine: The Da Vinci Secret Revealed.”

Main presenting problem: Stomach and bowel distension of 35 years standing, pains in feet, tinnitus, hypercholestermia

Medical diagnosis:

Mr. W has seen many doctors over a 35-year period for stomach pains, bloating, constant burping and reflux. He has excessive belching after eating any type of food. He has undergone many types of tests including ultrasound scans, blood tests, numerous gastroscopy and rectoscopy tests, which showed Helicobacter pylori. This was treated with antibiotics, but the stomach distension and pain still remain to this day.

He was operated for a herniated disc at level L6 in 2002.

Recent blood tests showed elevated triglyceride levels but nothing else of significance.

Holistic diagnosis:

The main point in conducting the IDEL Diagnostic Programme was to determine what the causative factors of his chronic problems were – clearly there were unresolved issues with the stomach that spanned over 35 years with numerous consultations to many medical and naturopathic physicians, but no complete resolution yet of his symptoms.

VEGA food intolerance testing identified a number of food intolerances – wheat, lactose and all dairy products, eggs, beef, chicken, crustacean fish family and caffeine. All these food intolerances can cause inflammation in organs and tissues of the body.[1] Wheat was his primary intolerance that would block his regulation or ANS completely.

There was also systemic Candidiasis detected, along with oxyuren vermicularis, otherwise known as the common pinworm on energetic, resonance testing.

Testing his organs energetically using Autonomic Response Testing (ART) as well as VEGA showed that there were a number of imbalances such as stomach, pancreas, liver, teeth, larynx, auditory ossicles, diaphragm, duodenum, ileum and prostate. In addition, there was a scar focus identified on the right foot that appeared significant as this was the primary deregulating factor of the ANS – meaning that this was the primary factor of all the organs identified that was keeping his autonomic nervous system from functioning correctly. Scar foci can become impulse generators, disturbing the subtle electromagnetic fields of the body, with resulting symptoms (see chapter 9).

There was also one tooth focus identified with ART testing, number 13 which is attached to the Large Intestine meridian that was detected on resonance testing.[2]However, a panoramic X-ray showed that there were 8 tooth implants and 5 root canal fillings which may require further investigation.

There was also considerable electromagnetic stress detected, probably as a result of using computers for long hours.

Thermography[3] showed focal mild hyperthermia at the right side of the mouth that may relate to focal, oral or dental inflammation. There were hyperthermic patterns in the right mandibular and digastric regions which may indicate increased lymph gland activity. No other significant findings.

Investigation of the iris in iridology showed a severe case of hypochlorhydria (low secretion of hydrochloric acid) which was probably the primary pathogenesis of his stomach issuescan include: diarrhoea, steatorrhea, macrocytic anemia, weight loss, protein-losing enteropathy, abdominal discomfort or bloating and reflux. Deficiencies in certain nutrients may result in limb weakness, memory or mood changes, circulatory weaknesses in the capillary network leading to tinnitus, numbness and tingling in the limbs and other symptoms. Many researchers now believe that hypochlorhydria is present in about 80% of the population and is often wrongly diagnosed for hyperchlorhydria (excess secretion of HCl) and treated with hydrogen proton inhibitors or antacids which only aggravate the problem further.

The body tissues were quite acidic and inflamed, and so was the stomach lining, probably as a result of the hypochlorhydria that causes food to remain in the stomach for much longer periods of time. There was a cholesterol ring which is an indication of an inherited predisposition to hypercholestermia.

Darkfield microscopy of living blood showed a high level of congestion with stickiness in the red blood cells (rouleau) with high valence fibrinogen causing cells to tear and be destroyed. There was poikilocytosis, an indication of low iron, folic acid and vitamin B12 levels. The white blood cells were viable with good movement, indicating an active immune system. There was also considerable fermentation in the blood picture, probably a result of the systemic Candidiasis.

Biological Terrain Analysis (BTA),[4] a test conducted using urine and saliva, indicated an inability of the body to detoxify the cellular waste, which results in fluid congestion and stagnation. There was also a lack of available minerals in the body, most notably the blood. The kidneys were not cleaning the blood adequately and that the remaining detoxification organs of the body are unable to compensate. There was also a depletion of minerals that may be due to an imbalance in normal dietary factors, or intestinal malabsorption.

It is recommended that lymphatic drainage be improved, also kidney function, support liver function and rule out dehydration (he was drinking about 2 glasses of water per day at this stage which was increased to 8-10 glasses daily).

Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis has shown that the levels of iron and manganese are relatively low and levels of molybdenum are non-existent. Manganese is an essential trace nutrient in all forms of life.[5] It is important for the production of a number of enzymes such as oxidoreductases, transferases, hydrolases, lyases, isomerases, ligases, lectins, and integrins. The best known manganese-containing polypeptides may be arginase and Mn-containing superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD),[6] present in all mitochondria.

Molybdenum is present in approximately 20 enzymes in the body, including aldehyde oxidase, sulfite oxidase and xanthine oxidase.[7] In some animals, the oxidation of xanthine to uric acid, a process of purine catabolism, is catalyzed by xanthine oxidase, a molybdenum-containing enzyme. The activity of xanthine oxidase is directly proportional to the amount of molybdenum in the body. So, low levels of manganese can lead to high uric acid levels leading to pains in the joints of the feet.

The hair analysis also showed a number of circulating toxic metals such as arsenic, mercury (he had 6 amalgams removed some time ago), lead and aluminium (probably from the antacids taken over the years which contain aluminium). Most of these toxic metals create free radicals which will cause further inflammation and degeneration of body tissues and organs.

Holistic treatments:

First, Mr. W began with an alkaline detoxification diet for 15 days with fruit, steamed vegetables, salads, vegetable juices and herbal teas. He also did the Hulda Clark parasite cleanse with Walnut tincture, wormwood and cloves during the alkaline detoxification diet.

He was also given nutritional supplements such as a high-potency multivitamin, a multimineral, omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids for the inflammation, betaine HCl and pepsin to improve the stomach digestion and eliminate the hypochlorhydria, as well as pancreatic enzymes to help improve the gut digestion. In addition, he was given homotoxicological glucosamine sulphate (2,000 mg daily), calcium with magnesium, drainage remedies for the kidneys (Berberis), the liver (Nux Vomica) and the lymphatic system (Lymphomyosot), aloe vera juice and a herbal drainage formula called Organic Lavage which addresses all the detoxification organs. In addition, he was given a ginkgo biloba[8] based formula to help alleviate the tinnitus and increase capillary circulation.

In addition, the HMD™ Ultmate Detoxifaction Protocol[9] was added to the supplemental regime to mobilize and eliminate the toxic metals. For the pain in the feet, he was checked and found to have a Rothbart’s foot or a Primus Metatarsus Supinatus[10] foot type which can greatly aggravate the spine and misalign the body posture,[11] also putting pressure on the knees.[12] He was fitted with 6mm proprioreceptor insoles[13] in order to adjust the Rothbart’s foot.

The tooth and scar foci were also repolarized using Low Intensity Lazer Therapy.[14] The belching of the stomach and distension had improved by about 40-50% within a couple of weeks of adding the HCl, even though he was on a reduced dosage due to the gastritis which we did not want to aggravate. At this point he also reported that his eyesight had improved a little, the tinnitus was much improved and so had his back improved considerably. The hot feeling in the feet and itchiness had more or less disappeared.

Six months into the treatment his health has improved overall – he has at least an 80% improvement in his stomach belching which he has had since he was 33 years old. He is very pleased at the fact that he can more or less eat what he likes. We believe that the stomach will improve completely as soon as he has completed the Candida treatment which he has not done to date due to his busy travelling schedule. He also still eats some of the foods that he is intolerant to which causes further aggravations on occasions. The eyesight, hearing and tinnitus are stable with very negligible symptoms on occasions. His posture has much improved with the help of the proprioreceptor insoles and this has greatly helped his low back pain as well as the pain in his feet.

Patient’s own account:

I have suffered for many years from bad digestion, with excessive belching, particularly after eating. It seems to me that my food is not digesting properly and perhaps coming up from the intestine back into the stomach as my belching often smells bad as though the food has not been digested properly. I have had this for some 35 years and have been treated by many doctors without success.

I have also had an operation for a herniated disc about 7 years ago, and still have a small herniated disk, which causes some discomfort from time to time. I also developed a recent foot pain which stopped me jogging, something that I have loved doing for years now.

I was really getting quite concerned about my deteriorating health as I am an active traveler and wanted to continue enjoying my travels and active lifestyle. Even though I have been seeing a Naturopathy abroad for over 25 years and his treatments have helped me to improve the quality of my life, no-one had got to the bottom of my stomach problems which was the most chronic and worse problem for me as it made it difficult for me to enjoy social eating.

While I was staying in Cyprus for a while, I found Dr. Georgiou’s DaVinci Centre in Larnaca and thought that it was appropriate to pay him a visit to see if he could help me. After an initial assessment interview we booked for more extensive testing – the IDEL Diagnostic Programme which took a complete morning of about 5 hours to complete. This gave a lot of new information that had not been discovered before – all the causative factors to my underlying health problems – the most critical was the fact that my stomach was not producing enough hydrochloric acid and protein digestion was very strained and this was the primary cause of the belching, distension, pain and reflux.

There were many other factors identified such as food intolerances, mineral deficiencies, toxic metals, dehydration (no-one had told me ever to drink enough water), stagnated toxins due to compromised detoxification organs and a congested lymphatic system. Even my blood picture that I saw on the screen while Dr. Georgiou was conducting the live blood analysis was congested with all the red cells stuck together and torn apart by lots of fibrinogen – I was told that this was because my body getting enough oxygen and nutrients, nor was it eliminating the toxins.

Even my feet where causing a misalignment in my body posture that was putting pressure on my spine, knees, and neck – this was simply rectified by wearing special insoles that made such a difference, and so quickly.

I was very impressed with Dr. Georgiou’s approach and the health problems that I have lived with for decades started to disappear in just a few months. I realized that this was beyond coincidence – there must be something to what Dr. Georgiou now calls Holistic Medicine.

I have learnt during my visits to Dr. Georgiou, that the premise of this wonderful medicine is that first you need to identify the causes of the problem, not simply put a label on it. Then you have to offload the causative factors – preferably as many as possible in the shortest period of time – then use natural remedies to repair and heal the body. This is exactly what Dr. Georgiou did, but each patient is obviously different and this type of medicine does not appear to be one that can be applied generally to all people in the same manner – each person needs to go through the testing to determine their causative factors.

I am truly grateful to Dr. Georgiou and his approach, as I never thought that I would be rid of the unpleasant health problems that I have had for over 3 decades, even though I have seen many medical doctors as well as natural medicine practitioners. Now that I know better, the missing element in all these other doctors that I had seen, was that they did not identify the true underlying causes to my illness, that made my life difficult up until today. I did not expect to regain quality of life at my age, particularly after having been treated by so many doctors, some of whom even suggested that my problems could be schycoschematic. The global population at large needs to learn more about this form of healing, as there are far to many people like myself whose quality of life could be improved so much if they had access to the method that Dr Georgiou uses in diagnosing and treating patients.

Dr Georgiou’s final comments on Mr. W:

This is really quite a typical case where a critical underlying digestive issue can cause so many other health issues over time. The digestive system is indeed the most important system of the body as it gives all the raw materials such as minerals, vitamins, trace elements and more to all the other organs. If the digestive system is out of sync, then you can bet that the rest of the body will suffer as a consequence.

The issue of hypochlorhydria or deficient hydrochloric acid production is one that is underdiagnosed by many medical doctors, and particularly gastroenterologists. Indeed, often it is misdiagnosed as the opposite problem, too much acid and treated with various drugs that block the hydrochloric acid production. This simply perpetuates the problem further and the patient enters into a degenerative downward spiral that becomes more difficult to reverse over time.

My advice to all other practitioners entering into the field of Holistic Medicine is first check the functioning of the digestive system before looking elsewhere! The problem with gastroenterologists is that they check the structure of the digestive system while ignoring its function – we need to concentrate our efforts on combing the two for the benefit of the patient.

It affects millions of people worldwide, predominantly women. Fibromyalgia is challenging to diagnose and treat due to its complex and multifactorial nature. While conventional medicine can relieve symptoms, a natural approach to managing fibromyalgia may offer a more holistic and individualized solution. This article will explore fibromyalgia, its potential causes, and the natural approaches that promote pain-free living. Understanding Fibromyalgia Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain condition that primarily affects the body's muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Its hallmark symptom is widespread pain, often accompanied by fatigue, sleep disturbances, and cognitive difficulties, commonly called "fibro fog." The exact cause of fibromyalgia remains unknown, but researchers believe it involves a combination of factors, including: Central Sensitization: Fibromyalgia involves central sensitization, a condition where the central nervous system becomes overly sensitive to pain signals, amplifying pain sensations. Neurotransmitter Imbalances: Disruptions in neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and dopamine, may contribute to fibromyalgia symptoms. Genetics: There may be a genetic predisposition to fibromyalgia, with a family history of the condition being a potential risk factor. Physical Trauma and Stress: Physical injuries, infections, or significant emotional stress can trigger or worsen fibromyalgia symptoms. Natural Approaches to Pain-Free Living The natural approach to managing fibromyalgia focuses on improving overall well-being, addressing potential triggers, and reducing pain through non-pharmacological means.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome
August 6, 2023

Understanding Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) IBS is a functional gastrointestinal disorder, meaning there are no structural abnormalities or specific diagnostic markers to identify the condition. Instead, the diagnosis is based on symptoms that fit specific criteria outlined in clinical guidelines. The primary symptoms of IBS include: Abdominal pain or discomfort Bloating and distension Altered bowel habits (constipation, diarrhea, or alternating between the two) Relief of symptoms after bowel movement It's essential to rule out other gastrointestinal conditions with similar symptoms before diagnosing IBS. IBS is often classified into three subtypes based on predominant bowel habits: IBS with constipation (IBS-C), IBS with diarrhea (IBS-D), and mixed IBS (IBS-M). Potential Causes of IBS The exact cause of IBS remains unclear, and it likely involves a combination of factors. Some potential causes and triggers of IBS include: Gut-Brain Axis: The gut-brain axis plays a crucial role in IBS, where communication between the gut and the brain is disrupted, leading to abnormal gut motility and sensitivity. Microbiome Imbalance: An imbalance in the gut microbiome, the vast community of microbes in the intestines, has been linked to IBS symptoms. Food Sensitivities: Some individuals with IBS may have sensitivities to certain foods, such as lactose or gluten, which can trigger symptoms. Stress and Anxiety: Psychological factors, including stress and anxiety, can exacerbate IBS symptoms. Intestinal Inflammation: In some cases, low-grade inflammation in the intestines may contribute to IBS symptoms. Naturopathic Approaches for Managing IBS Naturopathic medicine is a holistic system of healthcare that emphasizes the body's …

Female Infertility

Female Infertility Patient Testimonial - Case 3, Mrs. P, age 48 Female Infertility Medical diagnosis: Mrs. P had suffered from gynaecological problems for longer than 22 years and headaches for more than 10 years. She had seen a total of 5 gynaecologists who tried contraceptive pills, IV hormonal injections to stimulate ovulation, and benign, fibrotic endometrial atrophic polyp with fibrosis, which was surgically removed in 2000 with the suggestion that she have a total hysterectomy that she refused. Six months later she had a D & C with histopathological analysis that found nothing abnormal. Blood hormonal assays showed high levels of testosterone that was probably responsible for her hirsutism in arms and legs. Polycystic ovaries were diagnosed by ultrasound scan in 1999 but no treatment was given for this. The sonography report read: “Both ovaries have multiple (at least 15 on each side) small follicular cysts with diameters not exceeding 5 mm. Her periods were very irregular with cycles ranging from 40-60 days. She also suffered from frequent migraines and chronic fatigue. Holistic diagnosis: Mrs. P came to me not so much for the sterility problem as she was already 47 years old and as they had been trying for over 25 years to have more children, she had given up on any chance of getting pregnant. She was more concerned about her increasing weight, her hirsutism (hair on the body), and headaches that were getting worse and were more and more frequent. Therefore, only a few tests were run and …

METABOLIC TYPING DIETUnlocking Optimal Health with Metabolic Typing: Understanding its Advantages and ApplicationsIntroductionMetabolic typing is an individualized approach to nutrition and health that recognizes the unique biochemical needs of each person. By understanding an individual's metabolic type, this approach aims to optimize health by providing tailored dietary recommendations and lifestyle strategies.Understanding Metabolic TypingMetabolic typing is based on the principle that individuals have distinct metabolic profiles, which influence how their bodies process and utilize nutrients. It recognizes that different people have varying nutritional requirements, and a one-size-fits-all approach may not yield optimal results. Metabolic typing helps identify an individual's metabolic type and provides personalized guidelines for diet, exercise, and lifestyle adjustments.Advantages of Metabolic Typing:Personalized Nutrition: One of the key advantages of metabolic typing is the ability to tailor nutrition recommendations to an individual's unique metabolic needs. By understanding how different foods affect an individual's metabolism, metabolic typing helps identify the optimal macronutrient ratios (carbohydrates, proteins, and fats) for each person. This personalized nutrition approach promotes better nutrient absorption, energy production, and overall metabolic balance.Improved Energy and Vitality: By aligning dietary choices with an individual's metabolic type, metabolic typing aims to enhance energy levels and vitality. When individuals consume foods that are appropriate for their metabolism, their bodies can efficiently convert nutrients into usable energy, leading to increased vitality, improved physical performance, and reduced feelings of fatigue.Weight Management and Body Composition: Metabolic typing takes into account the relationship between metabolism and body composition. By understanding an individual's metabolic type, recommendations can be …
