December

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.

A Day with The Master!

Ger and Kim with Ian White Australian Bush Flower
Last month Kim and I spent a day in the lovely surroundings of Malahide Castle in Dublin learning more about the Australian Bush Flower essences from Ian White the Australian healer and naturopath who’s spent most of his life developing the range and training others in their use. It was inspirational to spend time in his company. The first thing I noticed about him was his slow, deliberate, way of speaking, frequently punctuated by pauses for reflection. His spirituality, sincerity and his deep love for the remedies and admiration for the plants that they’re made from were obvious from the start and he peppered the day with many stories of people who’d been helped spiritually, emotionally and physically by them. He showed many slides of himself gathering the plants to make the remedies (he does all of that himself!) in the outback and the majesty of the Australia’s nature seemed to validate the potency of the remedies (as well as making me want to be on an Australia bound aeroplane at the earliest possible opportunity!). read more →

Diann’s Herbal Tales

Dianna Herbal Tales Only Natural

Diann Fletcher Jones amongst many things is a recently qualified medicinal herbalist, as you can imagine Diann herself is very passionate about the health benefits that herbs can bring and so has decided to share some of this information on a monthly basis! And hopefully before too long we will have a catalogue of different herbs for various ailements and conditions that you can refer to anytime you wish.

Stop and Smell the Flowers

Suddenly we are cocooned in blankets of summer green, the gentle vibration of the earth is pulsing with life force and if we stop to listen a sense of well-being cascades over us.
This is the healing for this month, just stop, slow down, bend to the open flower and partake of its healing fragrance, touch the terrain of  a tree trunk and senses it’s heart beat, listen to the wind through the leaves. Be aware of the humdrum of busy insects and the magic of the sun as it dapples drops of light on the earth. That is where you will find peace and health this month .
With love and blessings
Diann x

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.

Energy Saving in the Kitchen by Mizz Winkens

Green jamjar image

Our theme this month is how to be more ‘Green’ and how a few simple changes in different areas or your life can help you tred more lightly on this planet. So who best to go to than the very talented blogger on all things green – Mizz Winkens of Green Jam Jar. Have a read of her wise and witting guest blog below of some simple ways to reduce energy consumption in the kitchen.

Mizz Winkens imageSometimes we get distracted by large-scale, expensive solutions to saving energy in the home when, in fact, there may be several smaller lifestyle changes that can make a difference. True, the installation of photovoltaic solar panels on your south-facing roof will save you electricity but the initial capital investment is often prohibitive. But don’t despair! A few small adjustments in your household may reduce your environmental impact and even save you some money. Here are a few easy tips to immediately “green” up your kitchen:

Look after your fridge: 

1.  Check the seal around the door regularly to ensure that the door is shutting fully. To test close the door with a thin sheet of paper sticking out. If the paper falls to the floor the seal needs cleaning or maybe replacing. To get maximum efficiency from your fridge, defrost periodically to avoid a build-up of ice and don’t overfill it- ideally, it should be 75% full.

2.  When you are defrosting something overnight, place it in the fridge so that the cool energy it emits will help keep the temperature down and cuts electricity consumption. And vice versa, ensure cooked leftovers are totally cool before you place them in the fridge as the heat will increase electricity consumption to regulate the overall temperature. It is best to cover liquids stored in the fridge.

3.  Incidently, it is helpful to check the temperature of your fridge with a stand-alone thermometer. It needs to maintain a max. of 5c and too far below that is a waste of energy so you can regulate it accordingly.

Be mindful when cooking:

1.  When you have the oven switched on try fill as much as you can with items to roast or bake. For instance, you might want to include a few homemade loaves of bread with your Sunday roast. Don’t waste your oven’s energy on just one dish.

2.  When you are boiling or frying on the hob, keep a lid on the pan. This means you can reduce the heat of the hob ring, the trapped steam will increase the temperature inside your pan. It is helpful to have a glass lid so that you can keep an eye on proceedings and avoid over-boil spillage.

3.  Cook in bulk. This is particularly useful for items such as dried beans or pulses where you cook the whole bag and freeze what you are not immediately using. Not only are you saving energy but packaging is less than bought, ready-cooked, tinned equivalents. Plus, it makes economic sense.

Gadgetry…..

1.  Do you really need that super-sonic, electric turnip peeler? (I don’t think these are actually available but you get my drift…) Sometimes a great knife, a pestle and morter and a pinch of physical exertion are all that are required to see us through. A good knife sharpener is a wise investment. It’s not the indispensable, frequently-used, multi-tasking machines that I’m referring to. It’s those plasticy, specific use, impossible to clean “must-haves” that we sometimes get lured into buying. Resist the temptation!

2.  If you need to replace any of your kitchen appliances it goes without saying to choose A-rated goods and to make sure the model is not larger than is sensible to accommodate your household’s needs.

3.  The most common energy waster in the kitchen has to be our old favourite…the electric kettle. Refer to the “green” kettle tips infogram for a few easy steps to making your water boiling as energy-efficient as possible. That next cup of tea will taste so much more virtuous!

Featured Therapist – Gráinne Thompson

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My understanding of Integrated Energy Therapy (IET) is that it involves invoking angelic help to work on a cellular level to replace negative energy imprints left by emotional or physical traumas with more positive ones and I certainly found myself very relaxed after I received an IET Session from Gráinne Thompson.
This fuller description is from an Irish website lightingtheways.com.
IET is a hands on healing modality that helps clear away the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual energy blockages while relaxing in a warm comfortable setting. Nine healing Angels are invited to assist in removing the blockages by working with the healer. It is performed on a fully clothed body and it is a very effective healing treatment based on integrating the pain of the past into the present to clear the energetic path at cellular level for a happy and healthy future. There are nine specific points where we suppress trauma and during this healing the old energy is removed at cellular level and replaced with the opposite. For example in the stomach area we hold onto stress and powerlessness- during an IET healing session this is energetically teased out and replaced with ease. It is a very popular and effective treatment for anyone who may be feeling stuck or unhappy in their life.
These are some of the benefits listed too :
