After my chat with Fabrizio Marini and Jane Carroll for our Therapist of the Month blogpost I asked Fabrizio to tell me what he considers to be his top Superfoods and how he likes to use them. You’ll be glad to see that these amazing foods can be introduced to your daily diet with no greater effort than mixing them into a juice, smoothie, breakfast cereal or soup. It’s so easy yet the benefits can be huge! Here are Fabrizio’s top six superfoods.
So what is a superfood?
A superfood can essentially be classified as any food item that contains an extremely dense concentration of vital nutrients, vitamins and/or minerals, as well as antioxidants, good fats and healthy enzymes. It is for this reason that we call such foods Super.

New website for Wexford natural health fans !!!!!
We’re lucky in Wexford to have such numbers of dedicated and knowledgable natural health practitioners, from yoga teachers to aromatherapists, from homeopaths to nutritional therapists. There’s no shortage of choice for anyone who wants to go down the natural healing route under the guidance of a qualified therapist. It was a natural progression when a number of these therapists banded together a short while ago to work together to promote themselves and Wexford as a ‘healing destination’.
We’re really thrilled to announce the next step on Holistic Wexford’s journey – holisticwexford.ie the group’s website has just been launched! To quote from the homepage “Holistic Wexford is a group of over 50 Complementary Therapists, Fitness Providers, Health Food shops and people working in the Healing Industry. We set up our group in September 2014 with a goal to building a directory of Holistic Professionals, also to connect with like-minded people to create a support network for each other.”
At last a central information source on everything in the natural healing world that’s taking place in and around the County. Classes and courses, workshops, a ‘who’s who’ of natural healing in Wexford with an exhaustive list of practitioners’ biographies, healing methods and contact details, it’s all here! Not everyone’s on there yet but a resource like this can only grow stronger and more representative of the natural health community over time.
How we look after ourselves is a matter of choice but if you want to keep abreast of what’s happening locally in the natural health and healing field you’ll certainly want to check holisticwexford.ie out and make the most of this amazing new resource of local knowledge.
