Guest Bio: Nyjon Eccles, MBBS, PhD
Nyjon-EcclesAfter spending time in research and practice of “chemical-based” medicine and not happy with the possibilities that could be achieved by single chemical pharmaceuticals in health restoration, Dr. Nyjon Eccles decided to expand and develop his longstanding interest in Nutritional Medicine.

This journey took him to the Czech Republic, Spain, India and the USA, where he studied with pioneering doctors who’s broader approach, over and above relief of symptoms, was achieving dramatic restoration of health using nutrients, phytochemicals and electromagnetic medicine. His observation of cancer remissions led him to develop this area as a special interest.

Over the years he has developed specific and powerful nutritional programs for restoration of cellular health. These therapies he offers formerly at the Chiron Clinic, which he set up in 1998 and now at The Natural Doctor since 2010.

He is pioneering the introduction to the UK of Medical Infrared Thermal Imaging for very early non-invasive detection of breast cancer and screening of musculoskeletal disorders. He states, “Earlier detection in younger women by Thermography gives us an unprecedented opportunity to stem the tide of increasing breast cancer occurrence. Thermal abnormalities indicative of increased risk can then be reversed by the correct attention to lifestyle, nutrition and lymph detoxification.” In 2014 he co-developed a computer-assisted Breast Thermal Image system, which is to be Franchised and is Patent-pending.

He is one of the leading Integrated Medicine Physicians in the UK and has a reputation for his practice of evidence-based Integrated Medicine. He is actively involved in conducting controlled Clinical trials to validate a variety of nutritional and magnetic therapies. His research and reviews appear regularly in peer-reviewed Medical journals. He is also an expert on Stress assessment by Heart Rate Variability measurements, having written extensively on the subject and has helped to develop bespoke corporate programs for objective stress measurement. He has further expertise in Magnetic Medicine and has pioneered research in this area in the UK over the last 10 years. His research led to the first ever magnetic product being given Drug Tariff approval in March 2006. His more recent work with one of these magnetic products, LadyCare, that significantly relieves menopause symptoms has led to discovery of a novel mechanism of action; a world patent on this discovery is also pending.

In an attempt to help people to alter their disease risks, he lectures regularly on topics such as “Natural Cancer support,” “Food as Medicine,” “Breast Health and Nutrition,” “Prostate Health and Nutrition,” “Clinical Thermography” and “Metabolic Health.” He is in great demand as a public speaker, increasingly being asked to appear on radio and TV for his expert opinion on Complementary and Natural Medicine.

From his research work with nutrients in cancer he has discovered a range of them that make normal cells perform better and these formulas have a unique application in Anti-Ageing Medicine. His work in the cancer field has led him to help set up a charity called CHART (Cancer Healing And Research Trust www.naturalcancerhealing.org ) to help guide people to which natural remedies really do seem to work as well as helping to create access to these.

From his work around breast thermal imaging and early breast cancer detection, he became more involved in helping to provide natural solutions for women’s health issues which include Natural Menopause relief (as above), Bio-identical hormones and Natural Anti-Ageing cosmetic solutions. He has developed novel Well man and Well woman programs based on earlier detection of imbalances using blood, urine and saliva tests in conjunction with cutting edge assessments of autonomic nervous system imbalance (using HRV), and early heart electrical abnormalities. More recently, he has developed a unique natural regime for fat loss; the basis of a new collaborative program with Personal Trainers.

He is acknowledged in Who’s Who in the World, 2010, 2011, 2012 and Who’s Who in Medicine & Healthcare, 2011-2012 for outstanding contributions in the Medical field. He is also listed in Great Minds of the 21st Century, limited to 1,000 entries, 5th Edition. Last year, 2011, he received a Medical Science Award of Excellence for Natural Medicine Research.
    Living with Menopause: Symptoms & Treatment Options
    The physical symptoms of menopause and perimenopause can include insomnia, hot flashes, and weight gain, and can be quite debilitating.

    However, the mental and emotional symptoms of anxiety, depression, and mood swings can be equally disturbing.

    At least 80 percent of women will have some kind of symptom, whether physical or emotional.

    Women in the Eastern countries don't suffer as much as women in the West, potentially due to their primarily fish- and plant-based diets and their reduced intake of sugar. They also tend to have lower estrogen levels to begin with, so once menopause starts to take hold the effects aren't as drastic.

    If you're starting to feel some of these symptoms, what are your options for relief?

    Dr. Nyjon Eccles is one of the leading Integrated Medicine Physicians in the UK and has a reputation for his practice of evidence-based Integrated Medicine. He has spent years researching restoration of health using nutrients, phytochemicals and electromagnetic medicine.

    Many women will turn to synthetic hormones for hormone replacement therapy (HRT), but Dr. Eccles doesn't use synthetic HRT at all in his practice. He has found more effective ways to treat women's symptoms.

    For instance, one option he offers is natural hormones or bio-identical hormones. These hormones are very individualized to a particular patient, based on blood and urine tests to determine what they are deficient in.

    This approach is very unique to the woman and her needs and deficiencies. Plus, these women get all of the benefits without the long-term side effects of synthetic options.

    Listen in as Dr. Eccles joins Dr. Susanne to share more about his clinic, his approach, and even a device he has created to help address women's menopause symptoms.
