When The Ovaries Retire

When we are born, we have no choice over the health of our adrenals, our mother's health, her mental-emotional well being, our maternal history, the environment that we are conceived in, the medications that she had been taking, for example, the birth control pill prior to falling pregnant will all impact our adrenal health. Her health pre, peri and post-pregnancy impacts our adrenals. ..Let's just say her WHOLE well being is really in the interest of our well...

What Has Digestion Got To Do With My Hormones?

When training as a nutritionist nearly 20 years ago, we were taught so much about the hormonal system and hormones and biochemical pathways of hormone metabolism, that it all got a bit 'tunnel vision' like. Sometimes we can easily lose sight of the WHOLE body system connection. I always encourage students to take a bird's eye view of the WHOLE, otherwise, we just end up working at the symptom level and not addressing the underlying imbalance(s).  Here is a  little...

HEALING or SUPPRESSING?

Definition of HEALING by one of my client's after her first session ...   ‘It is just beautiful, this is all very fascinating, healing is such a beautiful mess’ Now, it is not like this for everyone, but this is what it can look like, firstly how do you know you are healing? In homeopathic terms, HEALING occurs from - the top-down - the inside-out - from the return of old symptoms It may sound all very cryptic…but I will explain it.  Usually, when someone wants to...

Are you taking Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid?

Hi there,  I wanted to share a little on Vitamin C, especially as we are in the thick of winter here, well it feels like the thick of winter. Are you taking VITAMIN C or are you taking ASCORBIC ACID?  I remember when I first explained to my younger child when he was about 3 years of age,  as he was peeling the white thread-like material called the pith off the orange segments, that it is highly nutritious. He would peel off the pith and then eat the orange. I grew...

The Web of ADHD part 2

If you do not follow me on social media then you may want to read PART1 first.  If you do, then let’s jump right in. I want to share a case of ADHD, but before I do, I really want to explain this infographic a little. I mentioned in part 1 that dopamine, that wonderful neurotransmitter (lacking in ADHD) comes from an amino acid called TYROSINE. Now have a look at the image, this tyrosine requires a whole load of ‘magical conversions’ to ‘turn into’ dopamine. This...

The web of ADHD Part 1

The symptoms of ADHD vary from aggression (bursts), through to difficulty concentrating, lying to impulsive behaviour and more. When children are prescribed medication for ADHD it tends to be one of the two, RITALIN or ADDERALL. Both of these meds 'twiddle' around with neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are 'chemicals' naturally produced by various parts of our body especially the brain. The cells speak to one another by releasing these neurotransmitters. In...

The Holy Trinity

Hi, I have been in this industry for the last 30 years, my first degree was in Pharmacology and I find the way man-kind has 'mimicked nature' quite saddening but at the same time AMAZING and life-saving. I was in A&E over a month ago and THANK GOODNESS for IV morphine! THANK GOODNESS for our medics, our nurses, our medic students, and the NHS. My opioid receptors 'fully awakened to the moon and back'. I share posts as I am passionate about health and...

The Cholesterol Mania

The 'statin mania' is in full force. Yesterday on my way back from a meeting in London on the train, I overheard two older women discussing their cholesterol levels and one of them was absolutely convinced her joint pains started after the cholesterol-lowering medication she was put on. I joined in their conversation and discovered both of them were also put on vitamin D to boot,  no respect for the 'holy trinity'. Statins are a class of drugs prescribed to lower...

Stoptober and Heart Health

Hi, So some of my clients are doing STOPTOBER, if you are doing STOPTOBER, then I would recommend having your homocysteine levels tested before and after October. I get my clients to do this at the beginning of STOPTOBER and at the end...and the results speak for themselves, some go onto quit smoking which is the icing on the cake! This post is ALSO for the men, although women would also benefit. Most of the male clients I see in clinic come for - heart issues -...

From Autumnal Colours to Winter Blues and SAD

Hi there, Some of us have hit October HARD, in England, we have had some serious rain and it had been a pretty overcast week. Today started off cold, brrrr....., but it is has turned into an absolutely DELIGHTFUL, crunchy BRIGHT blue sky, the sun is shining and there is LIGHT, some are wearing sunglasses. This leads me onto today's subject...SAD.  Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is real and it is mainly due to the lack of NATURAL LIGHT. Symptoms of SAD …...

“Your Body Keeps The Score”

Have you ever wondered, why some eat so clean, so organic, so in season, yet struggle to shift with their health issues? The last few days have been a bit like that. On Sunday morning, I woke with cystitis from 'hell'. I could not walk, I was in agony, I however very efficiently and effectively cleared it within a couple of hours with homeopathy and bounced back. However....... Sunday evening, my older child breaks his elbow (just the day before he was due to go...

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 perspiring 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 block...

Go & Grab The Vitamin D

Hello there, It looks like, we may actually have a summer, but I will not 'hold my breath' but always hopeful. It takes the upper 20s for me to get my serious summer clothes on but the upper teens for most British folk to get their summer wear on, my constitution is just not made that way, Our life depends upon this big shining, burning star and so does our Vitamin D. Most people are being 'prescribed' vitamin D by their doctor on the NHS, and sadly it usually...

Why We Get Sick: the Hidden Connection Between Stress and Disease Part I

Living within 5 minutes of London has the most incredible advantages and here is one of them.... Dr Gabor Mate’s talk on Thursday last week. A lot of what he shared is actually in my healthy scoops but having sat in his presence and feeling his compassion and energy, his message resonated even deeper. I had every intention on taking notes and did jot a few things down, but just ‘listening’ and absorbing without pen and paper was well worth it. His talk was...

Blowing Your Own Trumpet

Hi Everyone, I hope this season finds you well and using naturopathic medicine more and more. It came as quite a surprise when I had lunch with a friend and she asked 'Why do homeopaths blow their own trumpet?" After some more chat, it turns out that maybe that is how some perceive it but I have some very clear responses to this question....as I sure do blow my trumpet when it comes to sharing how people have better their own health and the health of their family...

What Is Rapid Transformational Therapy?

For the last year, I have been busy learning and studying more about the MIND-BODY connection (some call it the PNIE connection, but that still does not encompass the WHOLE) in relation to our CONSCIOUS and SUBCONSCIOUS mind and it has truly been mind blowing and life-transforming. If you have not read my blogs on the Psycho-Neuro-Immune-Endocrine (PNIE) System and the impact of 'childhood experiences' on both physical and mental health, then I would encourage you...

FREEZE – the body’s innate wisdom

Welcome to part 2 of the Autonomic Nervous System. If you have not read part 1, it is here and I would encourage you to read that first, so this part 2 makes sense. In part one I described the Social Nervous System (a branch of the Parasympathetic Nervous System also known as the ventral vagus complex) and the Sympathetic Nervous System, also known as the ‘fight -flight’ system. I finished off part 1 saying that ‘when our survival response is over ‘taxed’ then the...

FIGHT, FLIGHT and later FREEZE

Welcome to my blog on the amazing and vital AUTONOMIC nervous system!  Research in this area is rapidly growing since the work of Steve Porges, Peter Levine, Barabara Fredrickson and Robert Naviaux (just to name a few). If you are 'experiencing' a chronic illness, then you may want to get to know their work. I am providing it in little bits over several blogs. And here is the first.  You may ask, what is that and why share about it? Well, as a practitioner of...

What Has My Child’s Nanny Got To Do With Her Eczema?

Hi there, I will be sharing a series of blogs on the connection between the MIND and BODY and the science behind it...I do and have shared many blogs on this, but sometimes it is just good to get a little repetitive in a 'good way' so this message gets across. A colleague shared an article from The Times Online from the weekend where a Doctor calls her therapy psycho-dermatology. Curing skin conditions like psoriasis through looking at the client's timeline and...
