No generalisations in healing

In order to truly begin healing your body, there is so much to understand!

There are absolutely no generalisations in healing. No diet or particular process works for everyone. Every person is unique. This is why it’s vital to learn how to tune into your body and learn what will work for you. The reason I have started running courses on chakra balancing is so that you can start tuning into your own body and have tools that you can use to help you on your healing journey. My next course is on September 18, come to join in the fun.

The reason I love flower essences is that they are a gentle and effective way to help us heal our emotional and spiritual blocks. I still remember my first bottle of Bach flowers and the changes that I felt on taking the drops. I wanted to know why no one had told me about them before. Many people first find out about flower essences through being introduced to Rescue Remedy. Rescue Remedy is a combination of 5 individual Bach flower essences. Do you have a story to share about Rescue Remedy? Would you like to learn more about essences and how they can transform your life? Then save the date, 2 November, as I will be running a healing essences course then. You can also read more about flower essences in this newsletter.

If you are ready to feel alive and get your love of life back then book in to see me now and let’s make a plan to turn your life around.

    What Your Eye Reveals

    In emotional iridology, this person would be considered a flower.
    Flowers are identified through a large number of open spaces and rounded openings that occur in the iris.

    Those with more open structures will tend to be more sensitive to the environment and emotions as well as their body and how it feels. They are often more intuitive and creative.

    It is important that they have a creative outlet and ideally be able to pursue a career which allows this aspect of them to be expressed.
    Avoid burning the candle at both ends and enjoying frequent periods of rest and recuperation will help you get the most out of life.

    Stress Reduction Tip - Listen to Music

    What music touches your soul?

    Is it soft and gentle music or are you a rock child that likes that beat. Do you like to listen to music with or without someone singing? Does your choice of music change with your mood, or the time of day? Or perhaps you like to listen to a variety of music. Today's technology is great and you can have access to your favourite songs and create different playlists so you have music to suit every mood. Dancing or moving to music is also very healing. So next time you are feeling stressed think about what music would help you, and actively listen to it.

    You can also consider listening to relaxing music whilst in the bath or to help sleep just before bed. Many people find having some music playing whilst sleeping can help cover up some of those background noises that wake us up and so they get better quality sleep.

    Music has the ability to evoke memories, these may be good or bad, from childhood, previous relationships or the challenges or successes in our lives. How many times do you associate a song with what was going on in your life at that time? Music relieves anxiety. Studies show listening to music can physiologically ease stress and even reduce depressive symptoms.

    Benefits of listening to music include:
    • It can put you in a good mood and reduces depression. It has been found that when you listen to music your body releases dopamine, the happy hormone.
    • It alleviates mood whilst driving.
    • Keeps the brain healthy in all age groups.
    • Music can be motivating during a workout, run, bike ride, or even at work.
    • It can improve your sleep.
    • It can help with relaxation.
    • It can assist those who meditate.
    • Lowers stress and this may have a flow-on effect of reducing pain.
    • Improves athletic performance.
    • It helps cognition in those with Alzheimer’s disease.
    What type of music do you love?
    What type of music did you listen to in your childhood?
    This month take time out to listen to some music that you love.

    Question of the month — What are Flower Essences?

    How amazing does it feel when you receive a bunch of flowers? Or maybe you are out in nature and see a beautiful rose or other flowers, and it just makes you feel peaceful, or calm or uplifted. Flower essences are about bringing that feeling into our everyday life.

    Bach flowers were discovered by Edward Bach who prior to developing the essences was a highly successful bacteriologist and homoeopathic physician. His view was “There are no diseases, only sick people”.

    At 43 years of age, in 1930, Dr Bach left his successful Harley Street practice, to find a simple, “natural method of treatment that did not require anything to be destroyed or altered”.

    Bach introduced new concepts into Western treatment:
    • Bach wanted to have a healing system that was natural and safe but also one that could be used by anyone.
    • The diagnosis was not based on physical symptoms but used negative feelings or states of disharmony of the soul.
    • Bach became aware that a predisposition to physical ailments was the person’s emotional and mental factors.
    The method of extracting the healing energies of the flowers means that overdosage, side-effects and incompatibility with other treatments were avoided and the essences acted directly at the required site. The small amount of physical plant substance in the essences makes them non-toxic. Bach Flower Essences have been used with the elderly, children, infants, babies, pets and plants.

    Whilst essences are usually made from flowers they can be made from crystals and some companies make environmental essences too.
    The action of flower essences is harmless and can be used by a wide range of people involved in healing and self-healing.

    “The Bach Flowers act as a catalyst for positive inner transformation. They can, through raising self-awareness, assist us to transform our most negative states: fear, uncertainty, loneliness, oversensitivity to outside influences, and despondency, into the corresponding positive states: courage, clarity, independence and peace of mind. They can help develop self-esteem, assertiveness, self-reliance and self-discipline, and above all, spontaneity and warmth in relationships” (Wells, 1993, p. 5).

    Are you ready for more positivity, confidence, peace, enthusiasm and vitality in your life? Then Flower Essences can help.

    Essence of the month - Elm

    Elm is the essence for overwhelm, the name elm is even hidden in the word "overwhelm".

    Elm people are amazing, they get so much done, and are very capable and hard working. The problem that arises is that they have a tendency to take on way too much and not know how to ask for help from others.
    You will find the elm person on every committee and volunteering to help friends and family with all sorts of things, over over-scheduling their diaries. This doesn’t allow them any recovery and recuperation time and they then struggle to do what they have committed themselves to do.
    It is important for the elm person to ask for help from other people. Others love to be involved too.

    Elm is only a temporary state as these people do so much and have a huge capacity to help others. It will often happen when something out of the blue has thrown a spanner in their life.

    “I can do it” blend can consist of Elm combined with:

    Centaury: for helping you say no to others.
    Walnut: to help you feel safe whilst you make the changes you need to in your life
    Impatiens: for helping to slow you down so you can take your time to do what you need to do.
    Water Violet: to allow you to more easily connect with others.
    Pine: to release the guilt you feel for not doing what you set out to do.

    Flower essences are amazing as they help us address emotional issues that take the zest and joy out of our lives.

    You can use a single essence or combine up to five in a dosage bottle.
    If you would like an “I can do it” blend please send me an email

    Best I can

    We are often critical of ourselves physically, as well as what we achieve.

    Today’s society seems to have an emphasis on being busy and doing more. As we finish one task it seems another 3 take its place. This can lead us to feeling inadequate, and lead to feelings of low self-esteem.

    Take a deep breath, and say to yourself “I love you and know that you are doing the best you can.” You can choose to say this under your breath or out loud. Saying it out loud will have more power as you are using the sense of hearing as well. Say it often, you can choose to say it whenever you pass a mirror, or when you catch yourself being critical of yourself. Remember we are all amazing and doing the best we can.

    Sick of feeling Blurgh?

    Are you sitting at home feeling blurrgh, tired, lethargic and lost your mojo?

    Brain Health

    More than 342,000 Australians are living with dementia and that number is expected to increase to 400,000 within 10 years. Worldwide, at least 44 million people are living with dementia, making the disease a global health crisis that needs to be addressed.

    A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s affects everyone, it is life-changing for the person with the disease, as well as their family and friends. This month’s Brain health tip is to reduce inflammation.

    When we injure our body or when it gets an infection the body creates an inflammatory response to control the situation and get the body back to health. This process is supposed to be of short duration and the inflammatory response then turns off. However, trouble occurs when this process keeps going leading to systemic or chronic inflammation.

    We generally know that we have inflammation going on because the affected area is in pain, there is redness, burning and swelling. The brain has no pain receptors so the brain doesn’t record pain the way we know it. Brain inflammation initially shows up as mental fatigue and brain fog, with the inability to think clearly, depression and poor concentration.

    Brain inflammation is serious. The inflammation leads to the destruction of brain cells which speeds ageing and destruction of the brain, increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other degenerative brain disorders. To reduce the inflammation it is important to know what is causing it. Leading causes are:

    • Injury to the head, this may have been a long time ago.
    • Long-term inflammation in the rest of the body.
    • Leaky gut, which leads to leaky brain.
    • High blood sugar and diabetes. Alzheimer’s disease is increasingly being referred to as type 3 diabetes.
    • Hormonal imbalance, often with the thyroid and female hormones.
    • Food intolerances and reactions, especially to gluten.
    • Long-term stress.

    If you are struggling with your memory or have a family history of dementia come along and talk to me about what you can do to keep your brain in good health.

    Helping you with your health concerns.
