Lasting Solutions for Stress

Stress Only Natural

 by Calodagh McCumiskey, Spiritual Earth

Stress is the epidemic of our time.  75 to 90 percent of GP visits are stress related.  22 percent of employees in Ireland are stressed all or most of the time at work.  Anxiety and stress are on the increase in schools and third level institutions with 50 percent of students saying they have difficulty concentrating in class because of day to day stress.

Unhealthy stress affects everything from our sleep, to food habits, alcohol and sugar consumption, our biological age, mental and physical health, our ability to focus, our relationships – and our joy.   Unaddressed, unhealthy stress can take over your life and cause a host of debilitating problems. read more →

As we flow into September, with the nights drawing in, how many of you have found the last month chaotic? Personally I’ve found it extremely challenging spending two thirds of it in hospital unexpectedly! So I for one am hoping the universe has something better in store for September.  Having enforced rest has given me plenty of time for reflection and introspection.  I’ve spent plenty of time thinking could I have done anything differently to avoid the chaos this situation has created.  Being confined to a bed has sorely tested my patience, as well as having to dig deep to find compassion for myself and those around me.  So from this experience here are some tips for when things don’t go to plan:

Salt is Salt is Salt!

Anna Skrine

An Anna Skrine Case Study

There are many types of salt that are currently used as condiments to food – table salt, sea salt, Himalayan salt, Low salt and herbal salt. Though some are marginally more nutritious than others, containing other minerals, in the end they all contain the salt sodium chloride in abundance. Himalayan salt, for instance, contains 98% sodium chloride, with just the remaining 2% making up other minerals. read more →

Roses by Doris Potter

Doris Potter Roses
Who does not associate the smell and the beauty of roses with summer, joy, love and well-being.

In our gardens and hedges we can find numerous varieties of often beautifully scented roses. They belong to the family of rosacea, are strong plants with wooden stocks and branches, have beautiful coloured scented flowers with five petals (excepting the hybrid variety), with multiple stamens in the centre. Their fruit, the hip is oval and turns red once ripe. The plant is vigorous and has thorns; the leaves are beautifully formed with a strict rhythmical structure. read more →

Welcome to June! This is a benchmark personally for me as it’s my birthday month, this year I celebrate my 60th year in this wonderful world. Like all milestones whether it be the passing of a year, month or week it’s something to both celebrate and reflect on.
Nature is certainly celebrating, the roadside, hedgerows and gardens are a riot of colour; when the sky is blue and the sun is shining its easier to feel thankful and appreciate the beauty.
Colour is something we use to adorn ourselves and our homes, and there has been many studies showing how it can influence our state of mind. I’m often drawn to crystals by the colour and pay attention to the colours that catch my eye as this can be an indication of where my chakras and energy system are in need of assistance.

Benefits of Plantain

Plantain Doris Potter Only Natural

by Doris Potter

Plantain, (Ribwort, Fleawort) – Plantago Lanceolata and Plantago Major

Plantain is another favourite of mine, mostly unnoticed, yet abundantly grows along the edges along lanes and footpaths, camouflaged amongst grasses. The slightly sticky seeds get carried around with our foot wear. The very observant Red Indians named it the “White Men’s Foot Step” as it grew wherever he had been.

It again proves to be a very nutritious and powerful healing plant. It is easily found and is the perfect first aid plant when out and about. Rub the leaves and put it on itchy allergic skin, or insect bites, or use it as a plaster on wounds. For blisters on your feet, just put the leaves over the blister in your shoes. It is antiseptic, ant inflammatory and promotes the healing process in the tissues.   Plantain also helps wounds that just do not want to heal, like bedsores, ulcers etc. read more →
