It’s the most important meal of the day, or so they say! Today we take a clear and comprehensive look at breakfast and what it does for you and your body. If you want a natural self and a healthy self, one of the most vital things you can do is make sure you are fuelling your system with what it needs so that you can course through the day with ease and fun and energy.
Yet again it’s time to focus on the Big S.
When you are a naturopath with a large base of returning patients, you often get to see certain seasonal emotional patterns in people. I notice certain waves of behavior and changes in mood at particular times of the year and at these times it’s my vocation and duty to reiterate the fundamentals of good health to people.
One of the saddest experiences I have come across as a naturopath was a few years ago while working out of my private clinic. A woman patient began seeing me for a natural health overhaul. It wasn’t a normal kind of scenario with a few little health problems here and there. Rather, it was a case of “what isn’t wrong?”
I believe in miracles...where’re you from, you sexy thing, you!
Many of you know the lyrics to that infamous Hot Chocolate classic and many of you may also find it a lot easier to use the word “sex” or “sexy” when it is part of a song or a poem, than when it is used in reference to your own sexual world and life.
You bet. It hurts and it hurts a lot!
One little twinge or one wrong twist or turn can really leave you feeling lousy, and there is nothing worse than living with incessant and relentless back pain. It wears you down and robs you of vitality and energy. It makes you feel old, and it can debilitate you so severely that you become frightened of doing the very things that can help it to strengthen and be properly supported.
As a naturopath I am in awe and wonder at the astounding richness of nature. The beauty and miracles that are found in plants is one of the driving forces of my life. I am constantly seeking out new plants and wondering about their medicinal and natural remedy properties, and how they can help me and my fellow human beings.
