Ger’s December 18 Monthly Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

Our Big News

By the time you’re reading this our new bank of bulk dispensers offering a wide range of nuts and seeds, grains and pulses, dried fruit, breakfast cereals, plus sweet and savory snacks will be standing proudly in our hallway. We’ve decided it’s time to espouse the zero/minimal waste ethic as fully as we can. We’re not the only ones. Zero waste shops are popping up all over the country in answer to the growing public consciousness of just how we can’t go on polluting the planet with the amount of waste, particularly plastic waste, that we’re producing. read more →

Tina Wilkins wants to share with us some simple things that anyone can do to introduce some positive energy and healing into our daily lives. In today’s society I think we could all do with a bit of extra positivity and these tips added to over time won’t take much time out of your day but may make you feel that little bit more positive about life!

As the nights draw in and it gets colder, natures answer is to withdraw, to pull back from life and slumber until the spring dawns. This made me think about how unnatural our rhythm has become, how apart from nature. For whilst the natural state is to rest, majority of ‘us’ will be caught up in the Christmas rush or trying to cram as much into the daylight hours as we can.

First as a grower and then having been trained at the College of Phytotherapy to become a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, the oldest body of practising herbalists in existence (est. 1864) . He did a post-grad in Chinese Herbal Medicine to become a member of the Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine. He runs a busy practice in both Letterkenny and Derry for the last 20 years as well as a busy health food store for nearly 25 years along with his wife in Letterkenny.

Healing Properties of Amber

Amber Beads SOS Only Natural
In Only Natural we work closely with a company called Amber SOS and are looking forward to having Ben from the company in the shop on Saturday 14th October to share his experience of working with Amber and how it can benefit the wearer. Here are the basics to whet your appetite.
Amber, though very beautiful, isn’t a gemstone like the others, it’s fossilized tree resin. Extruded by trees approximately forty billion years ago it has turned into the beautiful ‘gem’ we prize so highly and wear today. The best Amber for therapeutic use comes from the area around the Baltic Sea as it contains a higher percentage (8%) of succinite.
Succinite is the component responsible for the healing properties, mainly pain relief and relaxation, that Amber is known for. To benefit from this it is worn next to the skin for as much of the time as possible. It’s pain killing properties have made it popular for babies going through the pain of teething but it is equally beneficial for adults and is reported to have helped in cases of many chronic ongoing daily conditions.  Bones and joint are top of the list but not exclusive.  Wearing amber has been very successful in dealing with Repetitive Strain Injuries as well as ongoing pains and strains caused by repetitive posture or movements. Many report better sleep patterns as a result of Amber’s relaxing properties and others have reported improvement in migraine, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, chest, ear, nose and throat problems (including hay fever and sinus problems), eczema and psoriasis.  Amber is well known in it’s native area, the Baltic countries, as a remedy for thyroid problems.
