HYDROTHERAPY FOR NATURAL HEALING

The indigenous peoples call it the First Medicine, it’s considered sacred in all the perennial wisdom traditions, being used as a Holy substance for blessing, healing and protection.  The medicinal use of it hails back to the times of Hippocrates, the Father of Modern medicine and has endured in many forms across cultures and through the ages.
 
Water – The most basic of human needs and rights. We, the privileged minority of humans who are lucky enough to have water delivered to our homes every day, tend to take this for granted. It is only when there are shortages, cut-offs, contamination and oh yes, water charges talked about that we begin to think about water and how essential it is for life as we know it. The use of water as a natural healing tool is something that most people aren’t conscious of and has lost its prominence with the advance of modern medicine. There are many ways to utilize this resource for our health on an ongoing basis as a...

3 Biggest Barriers to Sustainable Natural Health

Many people these days are looking to live a healthier life. There are the younger millennials who have grown up with a health and fitness conscious media and advertising industry where “healthy living” is marketed to within an inch of its life. 
 
Then there are the mummies. Now that they have little ones to be caring for and well lets just say, their energy and waistline are not what it used to be, suddenly they become aware of not only their own health and wellbeing but of the weight of responsibility for their children to boot.  
 
Last but not least there are the middle-aged upward population whose vincibility inevitably presents itself and the focus becomes how can I grow older with the best health, energy and least debilitation and illness possible?
 
Regardless of where you fit into this picture, the desire and drive is there to live the healthiest life possible. So why is it that its so bloody hard to stick with the plan??? I...

ANTI-VIRAL HERBS – THERE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN TAKE TO HELP!!

I came across this blog post from my old site which was written about 3 years ago. Its a bit erie to say the least considering where we find ourselves now. I have left it unchanged as it still rings through and is like a bit of an echo chamber. Now more than ever we need to start taking charge of you health and wellbeing and not just be waiting till we get sick. 
 
DISCLAIMER: Herbs do not TREAT Covid-19 or any other illness. Herbal medicine supports the body in its natural processes to fight infection and come back to balance.

Having been away over the Christmas period, arriving home to headlines about flu epidemics, contact from schools urging us to keep our children home if they had any symptoms of sickness and general stress and panic about the level of debilitating viral infection doing the rounds, lets...

GETTING THE GATEWAY READY

One of the fabulous benefits of having 9 months of pregnancy is that it gives us time to adjust and prepare for what is without a doubt one of the biggest transitions in life. The first trimester is often a time of wonder or maybe shock, excitement but with a mix of nerves, worry and anticipation of what's to come. 
 
Getting over that initial 12 week period for many is a huge relief, both from a safety perspective and physical comfort perspective. It often feels like your over a hump and able to get into your stride. Its a time to enjoy the life and the experience of carrying your baby. 
 
Most of us make a conscious effort to take good care of ourselves from the time we get pregnant until the baby is born. We are aware of the importance of good nutrition, gentle exercise and the minimising of stress and negativity. It can often be more challenging than one would think as knowing whats best and doing whats best are sometimes not that easy to align in reality!

A WHOLE NEW LEVEL - ANOTHER TRUTH ABOUT BECOMING A MUM.

 

 

Before having children, I loved my sleep. I loved my space. More on point would be to say, my nervous system loved my sleep and loved my space. That is before my nervous system came across the cheese grater experience of being a mother to a newborn. Lets just say, before long, some nourishing nervines and soothing sedative herbs were called for!

 

No matter how many books you read, ante-natal classes you take or experts you engage, nothing can really prepare you for the arrival of your little one. Yes its the most incredible journey and of course we wouldn't change it but wouldn't it be nice if we were a little more prepared and made aware of the real challange's we may face and what we could do to possibly support our systems, rather than just  trying to survive? 

 

I worked for a number of years providing therapeutic support to new mothers. I met hundreds of mothers over them years with childern ranging in age from new born to toodlers and beyond....

INTRODUCTION TO THE MIND-BODY CONNECTION

“The body is the servant of the mind. It obeys the operations of the mind, whether they be deliberately chosen or automatically expressed… If you would perfect your body, guard your mind. Disease and health, like circumstances, are rooted in thought…. Thoughts of fear have been known to kill a man as speedily as a bullet…Anxiety quickly demoralizes the whole body, and lays it open to the entrance of disease…”                                         

  Allen, J. – “As A Man Thinketh”

 
The mind-body paradigm is nothing new. It has been the basis through the ages for understanding human beings in all of the perennial wisdom traditions. However with the birthing of conventional medicine and its mechanistic thinking, there was a severing of this innate link and the understanding of the dynamic relationship...
