Ger’s November 18 Monthly Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

A new remedy for winter and summer

All Seasons’ Complex is the latest addition to the Irish Botanica herbal range of which we’re particularly fond. The range is the brainchild of David Foley, a consultant medical herbalist, trained in both Western and Chinese herbal medicine. He has been involved with herbs for over 30 years. 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.

General awareness of the benefits of medicinal mushrooms (said to be the ‘next big thing’ in natural health) has certainly been growing over the last few years and recently we’ve seen customers increasingly interested in one particular mushroom called ‘Lion’s Mane’.

Bulk Buying by Liza

LIza Depenser pic
We are all looking for ways to save money when shopping. Many of the products we buy are contained in single use packaging that costs money and natural resources to make. So when you buy in bulk, you often eliminate the need for packaging, which has a positive impact on the environment. It is believed that plastic packaging can lead to ingestion of synthetic chemicals over time, so buying in bulk might also help preserve your health. read more →

Ger’s July 18 Monthly Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

We’re bringing Dale Pinnock to Wexford

Dale Pinnock, UK celebrity chef, author and nutritionist has just updated and republished The Clear Skin Cookbook first brought out in 2012 and, in partnership with Viridian Nutrition, we’re delighted to be hosting Dale for a cookery demo highlighting the do’s and dont’s of his unique 60 day clear skin program on the 20th of August. There’s a bit of time to go yet so watch this space and final details of the event and how you can be there will be in our August newsletter. The program is a nutritional, supplemental and lifestyle guide for anyone suffering from skin issues like acne, eczema and psoriasis. We currently have copies of the book to give away in Only Natural (Ts & Cs apply, purchase necessary) and this month’s recipe is a small taster of how following Dale’s plan certainly needn’t be about self denial! Here’s an excerpt from Dale’s own story on Viridian’s website which explains just why skin problems are an issue so very close to his own heart.

Ger’s March 18 Monthly Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

Dr Hauschka, yes once again we’re giving stuff away!

Listen up all you fans of ‘probably’ the best natural skincare range in the world, the inimitable Dr. Hauschka. Everyone loves it, it’s ‘gift with purchase’ time!
When you spend only €35 on the amazing Dr, Hauschka facecare, bodycare and make up ranges we’ll give a beautiful boxed set comprising a travel size cleansing milk and a cosmetic sponge absolutely FREE.
If you’ve never tried Dr. Hauschka products and are looking for a pure, organic range to truly support your skin perhaps now’s the time to give them a try. Here’s why:

For over forty-six years, Dr. Hauschka natural skin care products, signature facial treatments and business practices have been based on a “holistic” philosophy. Their 100% natural skin care products are based on an understanding of the way skin works and its relationship with overall health, the goal being skin that is balanced and able to perform its natural functions without dependence upon a slew of products.

A Dr. Hauschka Skin Care regimen works best when part of a healthy lifestyle supported by diet, exercise and contemplative practice. All of these factors help to reconnect us with our natural rhythms, and have a profound effect on skin health and beauty. All are a part of Dr. Hauschka’s holistic approach.

The Many Uses of Collagen

Collagen Only Natural

One Supplement, Many Uses

Many natural health supplements are quite specific in their uses but I love it when one with real multiple uses comes along. It’s great to see users get so many advantages from them. Collagen, much in vogue just now, is one such supplement and, on this basis alone, it’s versatility, we’ll be recommending it.

Joints

Osteoarthritis and other joint related issues can often be relieved by taking collagen. When it comes to our joints and tendons, in simplest terms, it’s the “glue” that helps hold the body together so we can suffer from joint pain as collagen production slows down as we age.

Leaky Gut

If you suffer from leaky gut syndrome, a condition where bad-for-you toxins are able to pass through your digestive tract, collagen can be super-helpful. It helps break down proteins and soothes your gut’s lining, healing damaged cell walls.

Ger’s January 2018 Monthly Update!

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

A fresh new year is upon us once again, a blank page to fill however you wish.  It’s time to acknowledge all our achievements of the past year and be excited for what you can achieve in the coming one. We, in Only Natural, are here to help you on that journey and we think we’ve made it a bit easier for you to know exactly who to ask.

Getting to Know Us

We’ve just festooned our hallway with some rather dashing pictures of ourselves and I hope it’s going to serve a little more than our vanity. We’re currently eight in Only Natural and, despite our common passion for natural health, I think we’re a pretty diverse group of individuals. Each of us has particular interests and strengths (from essential oils to gluten free food, from sports nutrition to natural bodycare) within the sector so we thought we’d put that out there a bit so you know who to ask about an area of particular interest to you or a problem you need help with. So check them out next time you’re in the shop, the theory is ‘Get to know us better and you’ll get more out of your interactions with us.’

Ger’s November 2017 Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural
For November we bring you news of some of the small companies both new to us and not so new who are natural partners for us ethically and otherwise, from a new vegan ‘cheese’ producer to a small scale soap producer in the West which came into being in answer to an bigger environmental issue to our favourite candle producers in Cornwall. Our industry seems to be conducive to building a network of individuals and companies who, although each doing different things, are united by a bigger aim, healthier people and a healthier planet! We have quite a number of events happening this month so make sure to have a read below and keep an eye on our Events section of our website.
