First of all we’d like to offer huge congratulations to everyone involved in Wexford’s first natural health festival WellWex. We were proud to be part of it and look forward to being so again, we hope WellWex goes from strength to strength. If it’s a reflection of just how much Wexford has embraced the natural health movement, then it’s in no danger in this part of the country.

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!

Hi hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather, being a June baby I love the summer months, the riot of colour nature provides. August is the beginning of the harvest and I’m hoping that as nature ripens fruit and grain that we all see a reflection of things coming to fruition in our own lives. I’ve found the abundance of colour useful as July was a tumultuous month. My little dog underwent surgery for a spinal injury and I’ve personally needed to ground and use the colours in the hedgerows as I drive to keep my chakras balanced . So this month I’d like to share a poem I wrote back in the late 1990’s. It may assist in heightening your awareness in how colours are helping to keep us balanced, or highlighting which chakra needs some energy.

Zazen (Zen Meditation) in Wexford

Zazen Meditation Mick Kinsella Only Natural

Mick Kinsella is Kims’s partner (yes our very own Kim in Only Natural) and for many years now he’s been practising Zazen or Zen meditation. Recently Mick started a Zazen meditation group and they meet in Wexford town on Sunday mornings. The benefits of meditation are well known and include stress relief, a clearer mind and a happier soul, better emotional health and more kindness. Here’s a little background that Mick shared with us. Could Zen Meditation be for you or someone you know?

Zen Meditation

My name is Mick Kinsella and I have been a practitioner of Zen Meditation (Zazen) for 10 years now.  The translation of Zazen from Japanese to English means ‘seated meditation’.
The main emphasis of the meditation practise is on posture and the breath.  In Zazen practice we begin to know ourselves and to go beyond the limits of our ego.  We are open to everyone interested in learning about meditation.
I started under the tutelage of Alain Lieberman a Zen monk ordained in the Deshimaru lineage.  Deshimaru was one of the first Japanese monks to introduce Zen Meditation to Europe, starting a Sangha in Paris, France.
Zazen Meditation Only Natural
In Ireland at present, there is three Zen Dojo’s dedicated to the lineage of Deshimaru in Cork, Galway and Dublin.
Zazen practice has recently started  in Wexford on Sunday mornings from 9.45am to 11.30am in The Creative Hub, Mallin Street, Wexford Town.
Anyone who is interested in attending please call one of the numbers below for more information:
Mick       086-3621148
Carmel    086-1692559

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 →

Tina’s Spiritual Tidbits for 2019!

Spiritual Healing Only Natural

Holistic and Spiritual healer and guide Tina Wilkins founder of Spirit Essence offers many different readings and practices here in Only Natural. For a personalised session or to book an appointment contact Tina on 089 702 0235 and she will be able to advise what treatment is right for you.

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.

Ger’s May 19 Monthly Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

Hi everyone, I can’t believe it’s already May, it seems like only yesterday I was taking down the Christmas tree. Oh well, time moves on and change happens and in Only Natural we’ve lots happening so if you’re as passionate about Natural Health as we are come on in and check out the latest such as…………..

We’re Going Wild

As part of our mission to bring our customers the very best there is in our field we’re about to take on the Wild Nutrition range. This is a range of ‘food grown’ supplements including nutritional, herbal and combination formulas. Born from the passion of nutritionist Henrietta Norton to produce the very best supplements for her own family’s use Wild Nutrition is based on the premise that smaller units of food grown supplements are way more effective than mega doses of synthetic nutrients. Many of the formulas are geared towards female health and were born from Henrietta’s own story. As she puts it “Nutrition changed the course of my life. I suffered with chronic Endometriosis during my twenties. Each month I would nearly pass out with the pain. To add insult to injury, the doctor told me that I would never be able to have children. So I went to see a nutritional therapist who specialised in female health. I listened. I changed my diet. It changed my life. Today I’m a mother of three.”

Did You See the First Shoots of Stinging Nettle Appearing?

Doris Potter

Submitted by Doris Potter

Instead of being reviled, consider stopping for a moment. Stinging Nettle (Urtica diocia) is one of the best healing plants found in our part of the world. When I looked it up it listed it as a remedy for 29 symptoms of illness! Don’t worry I will not bother you with them all! But I will give you the gist of its quality.

Stinging nettle is a close companion to mankind. You will find it wherever humans are dwelling or have dwelled, never in places where there was no settlement. The young stinging nettle leaves are very rich in vitamins and iron and can be used as a very nutritious vegetable or as tea. read more →

Healing Emotions Through Visualization

Anna Skrine Visualisation Technique

Anna’s Other Talents

Anna Skrine has worked with us in her capacity as Food intolerance tester for many years now and she has had many happy customers as attested to by her case studies many of which we’ve shared with you here. But this is only a part of Anna’s work and she also works with clients on the level of emotional and spiritual healing. We’ve wanted to let you know about these aspects of her work for some time now so here’s Anna’s own take on ‘visualization’, why she uses it and to what ends.
Unresolved emotional problems are stored in the subconscious, and the language of the subconscious is images, not words. This is why working with visualization is such a successful, gentle and profound method for safely getting to the core of a problem, and helping with its healing. read more →
