Hello everyone – haven’t we just had a couple of glorious days? I hope you all managed to get out in it and top up your Vitamin D? You’ll see why this is important in one the topics below! Today we seem to be back to more usual British weather of sunshine and showers but as I am indoors working today I really don’t mind!
The Power of your Mind
Weds 5th June, 7-9pm, Gladstone’s Library
Do you wonder what is happening to your life? Is it not as you would like it to be? Are you in pain and want to find out what you can do to improve things? And most importantly are you happy?
This talk will show you how you can change your life for the better by working with your mind – the most amazingly powerful tool you have. Come along and have fun and possibly change your life.
Local practitioner and specialist kinesiologist Peta Pendlebury is back after another sell-out talk to provide another entertaining insight on your mind and how it deals with life. She will also cover the different ways you sabotage yourself and what you have inherited from your ancestors that is affecting you today.
Seats are limited so don’t miss out – pick up the phone or email today!
Tickets £5 in advance and £8 on the door
Is this the reason why so many women feel totally clapped out?
This was a very interesting article in the Daily Mail last week (thanks to my client who brought it in for me!) which showed just how important Vitamin D was for energy production in the body. Without enough we will also crave sweet foods (not great if you’re trying to lose weight and also a symptom that the body may be developing diabetes!) and our immune system is also negatively affected so we will pick up more colds and bugs. Another interesting comment is that only 10% of our body’s supply of Vitamin D is taken from the foods we eat, the rest comes from sunlight. However, these days we cover up and wear SPF makeup to protect our skin from the damaging and aging effects of the sun all the time so how does our body get enough Vitamin D?
Answer: make sure that you expose as much of your body as you can for 15-20 minutes every day you see the sun WITHOUT sunscreen. And on days you can’t do this take a supplement. Even the government are now recommending 1000 units a day for the elderly. So how much will this cost you? BioCare do an excellent liquid supplement for £5.40 and clients who take this say it lasts AGES! If you prefer tablets then Cytoplan do a great food state one (much easier for the body to digest than regular tablets) £5.70 for 90 tabs. If you want to buy one from me just let me know.
B Complex and Migraines
Do you suffer from migraines? If so you may be interested in new research that shows that taking a B-Complex and Folic Acid supplement significantly reduces the frequency and severity of attacks. The way this works they think is that migraine sufferers tend to have higher levels of the amino acid homocysteine (which if you came to my inflammation talk you will have already heard about!) and the B-Complex reduces it. A good B-Complex will be about £7-10 per month – worth a try if you get them frequently. Ask me for advice about which would be most suitable for you.
Do you like baking cakes?
If so one of my clients has produced a lovely cookery book “Fuelled by Cake” which she is selling to raise money for Bliss, Nightingale House Hospice and Cancer Research UK. They are £10 each and the book contains 58 recipes, many from famous people. The only problem will be where to start ….. Apple and apricot cake? or maybe lemon drizzle cake? no I think it will have to be Chrissie’s Carribean Carroty cake! (she’s an Ironman World Champion 4 times over and if she says it must be healthy as it’s got carrots in it who am I to disagree?!!) If you want a copy let me know and I’ll put one to one side for you.
And talking of Ironmen …. Eve Taylor’s Seal & Protect Lip Balm has just been tested out at the Canadian Iron Man in Toronto. Competitors said it went the distance without needing to be re-applied continuously. It is always in my handbag – and there’s no nasties in it so you’re not eating chemicals. £4.79 each
Apricots & Broccoli – great if you have PMT!
A recent study showed that eating broccoli, sesame seeds, apricots and other foods rich in iron reported reduced symptoms. So eat more and try the broccoli raw (or lightly steamed) to get the most out of it. Remember to chew well though – get that digestion started in your mouth!
And finally – Thought for the day
