Back to School Tips Active Iron Only Natural

It’s that time of year again for the kids to head back to school. As they dive in to classes, sports, and other after-school activities, it’s a good idea to take a few measures to help set them up for a healthy year. Here are our top 5 back to school health tips to think about.

Bedtime

It’s important for kids and adults to get enough sleep each night. Most adults need around eight hours of sleep every night with kids needing a little more. Sticking to a routine is important so those early mornings don’t become grumpy ones. Set them (and yourself) up for the day with a reasonable bedtime. read more →

Anna Skrine, Naturopath and Allergy Tester – 1st Case Study from Research Project

Food Intolerance

Anna Skrine, naturopath and food intolerance tester, recently conducted some lengthy research into food intolerance in young people and we look forward to seeing the full results of that work. In the meantime here’s one case study that came out of it. As is often the case it shows just how beneficial it can be to remove the most basic allergens from the diet of someone suffering with life destroying digestive issues.

OLIVIA* Age 16

Olivia was age 16, but in a dire state when she came to Only Natural, and so we fitted her in as part of our Research Project.

Every time Olivia ate she suffered with reflux; she felt bloated all the time, and was not hungry, and often had cramps and pain in her tummy area.  She also suffered with constipation, which sometimes caused bleeding, though a bowel scope had showed her large intestine as being all clear. Her periods were so difficult that for the last 4 years she has had to miss 4 or 5 days of school each month.

Give your liver a helping hand

The season of indulgence is on us and indulgence inevitably leads to stress for the liver and possibly also for the waistline so this year why not take a few simple steps to boost your liver’s function before Christmas? We’re on a mission in Only Natural, we just did some great training with Caroline Harmer who works with Renew Life UK, the leaders in natural health supplements for digestion and metabolism and here’s Caroline’s considered take on what you can do right now to guarantee a happier, healthier Christmas and beyond.

Looking after your liver during the Christmas party season

Many people find themselves thinking about cleansing in January and detoxing their liver following the Christmas festivities. But there are things you can do to support your livers health while indulging in festive food and drink.

The liver is your major detoxification organ, performing over 500 functions in the body. Even with healthy organic eating, purified water, restful sleep, and regular physical activity, in today’s modern world the liver requires additional support to keep up with everyday stressors, environmental pollution, and chemical toxins.

Therapist of the Month – Anne Marie Ferris

Reducing Stress and building Self Esteem

therapist Anne Marie Ferris

Following on from last month’s topic of ‘Stress’ we thought it would be good to introduce you all to therapist Anne Marie Ferris as teaching her clients to remove stress from their lives is central to how Anne Marie works. Anne Marie’s background for the last thirty years and an area in which she still works for part of her time is education. This fundamentally informs Anne Marie’s practice and she often works with parents and children in areas such as stress reduction and self esteem.

NLP

A visit to Anne Marie can involve any or all of the therapies at her disposal. These include Neurolinguistic Programming which seeks to deal with how our belief systems and emotions can be serious barriers to happiness. It teaches that our fears and limiting beliefs can disrupt our whole quality of life, confusing us with conflicting thoughts, eroding our self confidence and making us question and doubt ourselves and our abilities. Just imagine how life could be if that weren’t the case. NLP seeks to help you see and understand how you can change the responses and behaviours that don’t work for you to the ones that allow you to live your life to the full.

Thought Field Therapy or Tapping Therapist

Also used is Thought Field Therapy, also known as ‘Tapping’. This is a simple, read more →
