• As Coronavirus Figures Soar, can you Boost your Immune System Naturally?

    With coronavirus figures soaring, is there anything you can do to boost your immune system during these uncertain times? Yes there is! One of the most obvious places to start would be by increasing levels of vitamin C in the body. Our immune system relies heavily on vitamin C so including more vitamin C rich foods such as strawberries, blackcurrants, kiwis, oranges, lemons, broccoli, peppers and kale into your diet would be a great place to start. When the body is under stress, which can be emotional stress such as from fear of catching the virus, it releases a host of hormones to cope with it. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce stress…

  • Ready or not….here comes the change!! By Sandra Wilson

    PART ONE : CULTURAL FACTORS – why is the menopause viewed as a bad thing (troublesome symptoms aside…) We women certainly get a bum deal when it comes to ageing. Not only are we committing a heinous crime by even making it past 40 in the eyes of the youth-obsessed media, we are also daring to demand that the medical profession pay attention to us and deliver us from the evils of the dreaded menopause. Only a few centuries ago, we were actually pretty lucky to live that long; most women, if they didn’t cop it during childbirth, snuffed it pretty soon after. We had the plague to contend with,…

  • The Evolving Natural Therapy Landscape and the Holistic Approach

    Natural therapies look for the underlying cause of symptoms by considering current physical, mental and emotional states of health and wellbeing. They will work to restore the body’s natural balance, leading to a more sustained and rewarding quality of life.

  • Suzanne Zacharia Tells Us Why She Loves Using EFT Tapping For Anxiety

    Every now and then, I search the internet for a method better than EFT. And for sure, if someone with anxiety, bipolar and schizophrenia approaches me for EFT Tapping, I would advise them to do the extremely gentle Reiki with me instead, as their bodies would just be extremely sensitive, and only the very gentlest method will do. But most people with anxiety just have anxiety, or anxiety and depression, or anxiety with complex PTSD, for example, and so most people with anxiety can make an amazing recovery using EFT Tapping. Anyway, my latest internet search brought up the following. Whilst all are great in conjunction with EFT Tapping, I…

  • What is CBT?

    Cognitive Behavioural therapy came from America and Aaron Beck. It is based on the belief that the way we think and behave in the here and now affects the way we feel and our quality of life. The thoughts we get daily have not just popped up from nowhere but come from many years of instances of negative life experiences that have created what we call subconscious beliefs about either ourselves, the world or people. These underlying beliefs then without us knowing will affect how we see our life day to say and deal with problems in our life We can also have positive life experiences that can make us…

  • Do You Have a Heart Wall? How Emotions Affect your Daily Life

    Emotions and Daily Life As we go through our lives we experience emotions on a daily basis, these emotions have an energy vibration that the body would naturally process whilst we sleep. Sometimes though the emotion is so strong and overwhelming that the body just cannot process it properly and this may result in the emotion becoming ‘trapped’ in the body. The emotion/event may also get trapped in the body through lack of sleep, some medications, too many other things happening in the day that the body just thinks ‘If I put that to one side for now then I can deal with it later!’ However, later can be days,…
