Aniseed,
one of my most memorable herbs - as a child I always was fed Aniseed bread when I was not well in the stomach. Here comes the latest update on Aniseed:
Aniseed, not to be confused with star anise (Illicium verum), is one of the oldest medicinal plants. This aromatic herb has a delicious sweet liquorice-like flavour and is a commonly used, and very safe, herbal remedy that is well suited for all age groups from children to the elderly. It is primarily grown for its fruits (aniseeds) which contain essential oil and are used for the symptomatic treatment of mild, spasmodic gastrointestinal complaints including bloating, flatulence, colic, nausea and indigestion, and for catarrh of the respiratory tract where it is used as an expectorant in coughs and colds and also for whooping cough and asthma. Consumption of aniseed in lactating women works as a galactagogue to increase milk supply and also gives relief to their infants from gastrointestinal problems. It is also used traditionally as a diuretic to increase urine flow, as an appetite stimulant and to increase sex drive. Pre-clinical studies performed on aniseed have discovered various other actons such as antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral, antioxidant, muscle relaxant, analgesic (including for migraines) and anticonvulsant (traditionally it is used for epilepsy and seizures) as well as different actions on the gastrointestinal system such as antiulcer and laxative properties. It has beneficial effects on dysmenorrhoea and menopausal hot flashes in women. In diabetic patients aniseed showed hypoglycaemic and hypolipidaemic effects and reduced lipid peroxidation.

Solving Allergies and Reactivity.

   Allergies are considered one of the fastest growing chronic diseass in Australia .

Symptoms can range from allergic rhinitis, hayfever, and digestive disorders, to eczema and
Asthma or even lifethreatening anaphylaxis.

Fact is that 1 in 3 people living in industrialised countries report they have a reaction to food. Interestingly however, studies show the classic immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated allergy only accounts for around 5% of food reactions, suggesting that the bulk of adverse reactions may be explained by other mechansisms.
Navigating allergies and intolerances can be challenging and lead to unnecessary restriction and fear .

There is no daubt that dietary avoidance can be a fundamental and powerful tool and the reuslts can be lifechanging for many patients. Howeer prolonged food restrictions can aslo reduce Quality of life and worsen health .
As your practitioner I will not only explore with you the pathophysiolcogy of food and enironmental alllergies and inotlerances but also proide you with a frame work of clinically tested treatment methods that not only reduce symptoms but also promote tolerance, allowing you the patient to  live  a happier and healthier life.
