Pain can be the result of a food or airborne sensitivity, whether it is the physical pain from a joint, arthritis and migraines or the pain from asthma, eczema, sinusitis or hayfever or digestive problems such as irritable bowel.  Sometimes the discomfort is minimal, but when the body’s reaction is such that it stops you living life to the full, it is time to identify the allergen.


During the Alternative Health Check the vega machine can identify your sensitivities and will also measure the energies in your body to find out which organs may be struggling.  A diet is then recommended and some nutritional or homeopathic remedies may be suggested to balance the body energies and help obtain optimal health.

Pain.  We all experience it at some time to one degree or another.  Neck and back ache, muscle cramps, joint stiffness and migraines are some of the most common physical pains, but there is also the pain from irritable bowel, asthma, eczema, and hayfever, and even the emotional pain of a marriage breakdown, redundancy from a job, or the illness or loss of a loved one.  Whatever the pain and whatever the source, most of the time there is no need for it.


Here at The Wyndham Centre we have therapists who specialise in pain relief and getting the body back into working order.


Pain is defined as ‘the unpleasant sensory and emotional experience an individual has when they perceive actual or potential tissue damage to their body.’


Medical diagnosis is based on the severity, duration and type (dull, burning, or stabbing) of the pain and also the cause such as neuropathic pain which is caused by damage to nerve fibres.  It is a major symptom in many medical conditions interfering in a person’s quality of life and general functioning.


Pain is a feeling triggered in the nervous system. Pain can be helpful. Without pain, you might seriously hurt yourself without knowing it, or you might not realise you have a medical problem that needs treatment. Once you take care of the problem, pain usually goes away.


Pain is highly subjective to the person experiencing it.  At The Wyndham Centre we understand that everyone is an individual and will respond differently not only to their pain but also to the treatment.  We have a variety of different therapies that can help.

What is the difference between allergy and intolerance?

Food allergy and food intolerance – they’re often confused for one another and neither is too pleasant, yet they are dramatically different.

With an allergy you will quickly become aware you’ve eaten something. It can take less than an hour for an allergic reaction to take hold, with nasty effects from skin rashes to vomiting and diarrhoea appearing.

Food intolerance, on the other hand, is not so easy to identify. In fact, it can take days to make itself known.

And very few of us would ever stop to think that the cause of the discomfort or distress we’re suffering on a Friday could actually be our breakfast from a few days ago.

As a result, food intolerance is thought to affect up to 45 per cent of the population at some time – with most completely oblivious to it.

This is why the Alternative Health Check at The Wyndham Centre is considered one of the best ways to discover which parts of your diet are causing your body discomfort.
