Being honest with ourselves and in Gaia

By | March 31st, 2018|accepting change, psychology, stress|

The Easter bank holiday is the traditional time for spring cleaning, and many people across the world are thinking about tidying up and de-cluttering their property this Easter weekend. For me, this is a quiet time for self-reflection, honesty and Gaia. As I change and make changes so do my family and clients that I [...]

“Everyone wants to change, but no one wants to be changed”.

By | March 25th, 2018|accepting change, Inspiration, life, love|

What do I mean by this quote "Everyone wants to change but no one wants to be changed". You know yourself if you say to your partner, children, friends or colleagues at work something you feel they could improve on or give advice, very rarely will that person listen. We sometimes have to learn from our [...]

“Don’t let your biology become your biography”

By | March 25th, 2018|accepting change, pain, tired|

In order to survive in life, we take on certain behavioural patterns and characteristics. These are known as archetypes, it's important that we know when we are behaving as a particular archetype. As the famous Carolyn Myss would say "Don't let your biology become your biography". Life is tough and hard and we are all experience [...]

Survival & our behaviour part 1

By | March 25th, 2018|Uncategorised|

Around the world, people go about doing the same things in very different ways. Although the behaviours of races and cultures are different, the basic needs they are satisfying are very similar. Abraham Maslow is one psychologist who studied these needs. Remember: "Our genes load the gun but the environment pulls the trigger". A great [...]

Oestrogen overload in men = Prostatitis & man boobs

By | March 17th, 2018|life, stress, sugar, tired|

Oestrogen is in everything from our tap water to our daily food chain.  With more and more men showing signs of prostatitis, prostate cancer and man boobs, this is something we need to act upon. High oestrogen contributes to prostate cancer. As the testosterone is transferred into oestrogen, the low levels of testosterone can cause many [...]

Why have some of us got it and some of us have not? Whether it's football, pilates, yoga, playing an instrument, passing an exam or taking up a new hobby. Every human has a skill; this is based on revolutionary scientific discovery involving a neural insulator called myelin, which some neurologists now consider being the [...]

Prolapsed & herniated discs

By | March 2nd, 2018|back pain, stress|

As the weeks go by I am overwhelmed by telephone enquiries with clients with prolapsed discs. This is why we assess rather than guess. Throwing clients straight into any sort of class can be detrimental to their back herniation and everyone is different. Just because your MRI shows a bulge, does NOT mean you have a [...]

Fibromyalgia, serotonin & repressed anger – Is there a link?

By | February 27th, 2018|Embodied Emotion, Emotional Experience, Wheat|

I am raising the question today is there a link between GIT (gastrointestinal tract), serotonin, IBS and repressed anger that could be triggering fibromyalgia. Although there are many possible causes of fibromyalgia, what can be certain is that all of the possible causes are a direct result of a cascade of disturbances and resulting malfunctions. [...]

You’ll never look good on the outside till you look good on the inside

By | February 26th, 2018|gut, Immune system, psychology, tired|

Did you know that our outside or exterior reflects our inside or interior? Everything is organ and gut health. If you have poor quality connective tissue no amount of exercise including pilates and yoga or physio is going to repair you optimally. In the cadaver labs, we call this 'PPP' (piss, poor, protaplasm). So when [...]

It’s all in your head – The wheat brain connection

By | February 26th, 2018|gut, Immune system, psychology, stress, Wheat|

Increasing blood sugar levels are associated with cognitive decline, a long-term study has found wheat effects reach the brain in the form of opiate-like peptides. The polypeptide exorphins responsible for these effects come and go, dissipating over time, Exorphins instruct you to eat more food, increase calorie consumption. All these effects are reversible. Stop eating wheat [...]
