Kohutu Health provides complementary health care for a wide range of conditions. SCENAR is particularly suited to helping pain. The clinic also has interest in heavy metal and chemical toxicity, as well as the gut-brain connection in ADHD and related spectrum disorders. We are located in Manakau, three minutes off SH1 between Otaki and Levin.
Kohutu Health arose after the death of radiographer Marj Gordon following her exposure to the toxic chemicals used in processing xrays. Her daughter, Phillippa (Pip) Martin, became interested in the effects of chemicals used in workplaces, and began searching for answers to help with toxic chemical and heavy metal loads in the body. In 1997 she established SNFTAAS – The Support Network for the Aldehyde and Solvent Affected, an organisation which provides information to affected people to support their healing, raises public awareness, and encourages government action to prevent toxic exposure.
Here Nathan Howell receives LASER on reattached fingers after a concrete-cutting accident requiring 12 hours of surgery, plus a general SCENAR technique to speed healing. His surgeon stated that he had never seen such a fast reattachment.
Pip has travelled extensively to learn about medical therapies and new techniques. She has been especially interested in finding safe, non-invasive solutions as many people with toxic loads react badly to petrochemical-based drugs.Therapies and strategies which have been effective for people with chemical and heavy metal toxicity are Scenar, Soft Laser light Q-1000, Body Talk, the Energy Balancing Blanket, Homeobotanicals, heavy metal chelation, Sunlight Far Infra-red saunas, MMS1, removing sources of toxins, minerals (eg Active Elements) and probably most important, using sound traditional principles of nutrition.These therapies have been proven effective for a very wide range of ailments in conjunction with testing which helps identify health issues including the Meridian Energy Assessment Analysis (MEAD), Ionic Heavy Metal Urine Test, muscle testing (kiniesiology), along with the latest laboratory testing for food sensitivities, parasites, and mineral imbalances.The importance of eating nutrient-dense foods, properly prepared is a particular passion for Pip. In the 1930s Dr Weston Price (www.westonaprice.org) worked out a list of factors which kept 16 traditional societies healthy with excellent teeth and jaw structure despite huge differences in food sources. These principles are equally valid today. Raw milk (not organic) is available from the farm, and help is offered to learn the making of traditional bone broths, and lactofermented and cultured foods. 'Fermented' simply means pre-digested with correct probiotic bacteria for the healthy gut and includes foods like yoghurt, kefir, sourdough bread, komboucha, sauerkraut/lacto-fermented vegetables. Daily intake is critical to restoring proper gut function.It is recommended to become familiar with the work of Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride, Neurosurgeon, Nutritionist and Mother of an autistic son who is today a normal teenager after following principles of tradtional nutrition ( www.gaps.me ) Her books: "Gut and Psychology Syndrome - GAPS" and "Put Your Heart in Your Mouth", include information on the critical importance of eating good animal fats including butter, and coconut oil. Another important work is Sally Fallon's "Nourishing Traditions - The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats".Kohutu Health works with Deb Gilbertson of Te Kaihau Education Trust to offer help in the ADHD Da Vinci spectrum.
