The Wonders Of Broth

Today I want to share about BROTH and specifically BONE broth. Why BONE broth because most of the research is done on bone broth. I am going to go into a bit more detail on broth and the importance of homemade broth because there seems to be some serious misinformation about this amazing nutrient-rich ‘ancestral food’. BONE broth has been a staple since our ancestors discovered fire. They would take the whole remains of the hunted animal, bone, the cartilage, the...

I Am Not A Stalker

Hi there, As a practitioner of homeopathy AND nutrition I more often get clients who are very much into the Western medicine philosophy of health. By this I mean that the 'disease rules'. For example, someone comes in with irritable bowel syndrome and they will ask what nutrients are beneficial or what DIEt is good for IBS? So a typical session may start with lots of chat about the disease and possible links to various biochemical pathways or nutrient deficiencies...

PROBIOTICS: YES or NO?

Hi there So recently, there has been an article going around on social media about probiotics and how they are not effective. And then the ripple effect is receiving emails from clients asking what do you think about this ‘article’? There is quite a bit of truth in probiotics being ‘useless’ . Now before you go all crazy…….read on… People have started to take probiotics like their daily coffee or afternoon tea. This is not what probiotics were originally...

Back To School With Nutrition & Homeopathy

Welcome to the month of September! For some of us, it is that time of the year which can bring up all sorts of emotions and I am one of those parents. So to ease myself and you into this transition, I have posted a few blogs (on FB and Insta) on how to MINDFULLY  help your child(ren) transition into school/nursery/childminders. Remember, A THOUGHT leads to an emotional response that leads to a physical/physiological response. So it is very helpful to listen to...

Feeling HOT HOT HOT!

Hi Everyone, Just a quick blog on staying safe in this wonderful, glorious and totally amazing heat! Firstly, if you are not sweating like a pig in the English heat wave then maybe it is time to get a health check-up. Sweating or perspiring is important to keep cool. So anyone using antiperspirants is at a huge disadvantage, not only do they contain chemicals that can mess around with various biochemical processes in the body, these antiperspirants are there to...

Go & Grab The Vitamin D

Hello there, We are having wall to wall sunshine here in England and it is just fantastic for us British folk to catch up on our Vitamin D. However, to get enough of this vitamin we need to get outdoors, it is not going to happen if we stay indoors or if we lather ourselves with sunblock that has more toxins than skin cancer itself. So let me just get a few things clear ... Vitamin D is made in our body by the presence of the UVB from that big star we call the...

What is measles? It is a viral...

Are You Fat Conscious?

Hi Everyone, I want to get straight to it today.  FAT, ..how do you feel when you hear that word? If you feel fearful, anxious or doubtful over this word then read on. It is proven that FAT IS NOT the culprit, it does not 'clog' arteries, create heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, inflammation, cancer, etc. Fat is a necessity, our brain is mainly fat, our cells are surrounded by a layer of fat, our hormones are made from fat especially the stress ones...

Homeopathy Still Does Not Work

Hi there, Welcome, to part 2 of  ‘Homeopathy Does Not Work’…if you did not get to read yesterday’s part 1, you can read it here.   I also want to share the movie MAGIC PILLS -promise or placebo  Try and watch it when you have time. Ultra-diluted medicine or nano-medicine is recognized scientifically, it is in essence homeopathy. So is it just a matter of the ‘language’ we use? When Samuel Hahnemann founded homeopathy in the 1790s there were no such scientific...

Homeopathy Does Not Work

Hi there, It's homeopathy awareness week....so what is it or what is it not? Homeopathy is for Tree-huggers Hippies The middle class Unscientific folk Planet-saving vegans There is no proof that homeopathy works if it did then there would be plenty of randomised double-blind placebo tests proving it to work. The gold standard tests that we use in clinical trials to prove and test the safety of a medical drug is the randomised double blind placebo test. Neither...

POTS – They Said “There Is No Cure”

Hi, Just want to share this quick case on POTS….. In February, Amanda had completed my ‘fasting and feasting’ course. She had a variety of symptoms the main one being a very unpredictable autonomic nervous system (I share on this in my course BUT I will be sharing more on this system in my soon to start membership, as the autonomic nervous system controls all that we have ‘no control over’ and it can be pretty frightening when it goes slightly haywire). Amanda’s...

What Has Strep To Do With Anxiety and OCD?

Hi there, I wanted to share a recent case after a client approached me through social media. She had read about PANDAS and strep throat and antibiotics and more than any mother should have to who has no medical background BUT she was not getting any help. Her 4,5yr old son had regressed into a boy with tics (blinking and at the same time 'twitching' his arm) OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) in that he HAD to have his shoes and socks on just right. The socks...

Fancy A Change In Perception?

Hi there, We are all very familiar nowadays with the good and bad bacteria that live within us. We would not be alive if we did not have these microscopic 'organs' within us. Thank goodness for mother nature and all its wisdom..science is trying to catch up with mother nature but mother nature will always be light years ahead. I find it fascinating that research shows that there is like a dual motorway that runs from our gut to the brain AND from our brain to the...

Sugar Is The New Cocaine

Hi Everyone, 'If sitting is the new smoking, then is sugar the new cocaine'. Everyone knows about the ill effects of sugar, it is well documented and most of the average school-aged child starts their day on this 'high'. 'Sugar has been described as being more dangerous than gunpowder'  by the WHO, in the global health observatory data repository 2012. If you want to read more on this you can order Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari here. So let me share a little more...

It Is More Than The Fasting

Hi Everyone, I hope this blog finds you well. I am so ready for the Summer but Spring has had a slight change of plan here in England. Wherever you are in the world may the season find you enjoying good health. I wanted to share a little about 'feasting' which basically means feeding our body. In reality, we feed our body physically, emotionally, relationally and spiritually. ALL of these aspects are of absolute importance when it comes to wellbeing. One out of...

The Copper & Iron Love Affair

Hi there, I am sharing a bit more on iron but more in relation to copper. If you know anyone who is told are anaemic or low in iron do share this blog with them, it may just save them from more serious health issues in the long term. I sat in the same lectures as doctor students during my university days and we are all taught that copper is required for the utilisation of iron. You only have to google iron utilisation and boom, you will find that copper and iron...

Taking Iron Supplements or Anaemic?

Hi there, I see plenty of women and a handful of men who are prescribed iron supplements for their anaemia or low iron status. Did you know that anaemia is most of the time NOT an iron issue? Hundreds of people take iron because they are tired, 'anaemic', have low haemoglobin and so forth. However, if iron (and any other mineral for that matter) is not taken with other minerals then it can mean you get even more 'anaemic or tired'. In other words, the underlying...
