Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

A New Face in Only Natural

If you’ve been in the shop in the last few weeks you may have met Emma, our new team member. If not we know you’re going to take a shine to her. Emma’s currently studying to become a Nutrition and Health Coach with the Irish Institute of Nutrition and Health and, when she’s completed the year, will add to the already five in number Only Natural staff members with nutritional qualifications. This fact makes me very proud indeed of our high standards of knowledge and our enthusiasm to constantly keep working on them.

Ger’s April 19 Monthly Update

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

Wiley’s Finest Fish Oils

One of the pleasures of working in our industry is that new development is constantly (when not hampered by legislation but that’s an other story) taking place. New companies come on stream and the bar is raised higher. We discovered Wiley’s Finest Fish Oils recently and it was easy to decide we wanted to work with them. Modern diets tend to be deficient in Omega 3 essential fats which can challenge brain, eye, heart and joint health so, unless you’re vegan, it makes sense to supplement with fish oils. We’re recommending Wiley’s Finest for three reasons.
1 We haven’t come across these strengths before.
2 They use one sustainable species, Alaskan pollock, for minimal environmental impact. Wiley’s say :

Ger’s July 2017 Update!!

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural
Since last month we’ve celebrated Ruth and Ciarán’s wedding. You won’t be surprised to hear that there was plenty of evidence of the couple’s alternative approach to life on the day and why not, if you’re walking the walk you walk it every day! It was a truly joyous occasion and we wish them both a full and happy life together.

Other news is that our newest staff member Paul is settling in remarkably well. Already customers are appreciating his personal experience and depth of knowledge when it comes to blood sugar management. If this is an issue for you do come to talk to Paul.
This month we’re sharing a new case history from Anna Skrine that shows how allergens can switch illness on like a light while their removal can pave the way to better health, we have news of events both in Only Natural and elsewhere, Ruth reviews the Terrawash , a new clothes wash product that’s good for the earth and good for your pocket too and I’ll introduce you to the Jackfruit so you can be the toast of the barbecue circuit impressing vegans and meat eaters alike!

Ger’s June 2017 Update!!

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural
Hi everyone,
We hope you’re all enjoying the start of a great summer. In Only Natural we’re very excited as more opportunities present themselves for us to go in the direction we want to. It’s a new direction and it’s not, in ways we’re just going back to our roots. Over the next few months you’ll see us increase our offering of fresh, local produce, all produced by people who care as passionately as we do about wholefoods and how a diet firmly based on them really is the way to health and vitality.
As well as this we’ll be taking a serious look at sustainability and how we can help you, our customers, to make the most environmentally sound buying choices, whether that’s by buying organic, buying local or just minimizing packaging . Let’s look to the health of the planet as well as our own, after all they do go hand in hand. Yes these are lofty ideals but we can all make a difference, no matter how small, and we’d welcome any suggestions or comments you have so don’t be shy!

Ger’s March Update!

Ger's Monthly Update Only Natural

So what’s the low down on Only Natural this month??

 Firstly our rather fantastic Surya Brasil Henna Hair Colour Competition

If you’ve ever coloured your hair with henna (and I have, albeit a while ago), you’ll know just how good it feels. Unlike chemical hair dyes which penetrate the hair shaft, henna coats it. The result is a wonderful thickening and conditioning of the hair. It’s also the only 100% natural hair colorant I know of.
Our friends in Surya Brasil have given us a fantastic prize worth €500 exclusive to Only Natural!  Just check out here to find out more details.
