A holistic & natural approach to your physical, mental and emotional health concerns by working with

Operating as usual


Until you start acknowledging that your health symptoms are often the body's way of expressing imbalance or dysregulation on an emotional level or in the emotional sphere (this includes suppression of emotions over time, traumatic experiences, unexpressed or repressed emotions, emotions that you deem 'negative,' etc.), true root-cause healing will most likely not occur.

Disease is called disease for a reason. There is true dis-ease in the body. For too long we have made psychosomatism (a disorder having physical symptoms but originating from mental or emotional causes) a negative term and yet the reality is most people with longstanding health issues and those beginning to experience new health problems suffer from psychosomatic symptoms. They are true symptoms but they require the recongition that the body is a holistic being - the mind, body and emotions require each other to stay regulated and harmonized. An imbalance in one can result in mental symptoms, physical symptoms and emotional symptoms.

I'm not in anyway saying that disease cannot and does not occur from physical trauma, toxins, poor diet, etc. But our emotional and spiritual health can make us more susceptible to injury from toxins and poor dietary life choices.

We need to talk about the link between the mind-body more often if we want to start healing. And we need to start talking about it more because the increase in mental illness, prescription medication use and chronic disease is on the rise and our current system has little to offer but long-term pharmaceuticals with damaging side effects.

I'm talking a lot about the connection between the mind and body this week with regards to healing because it is SO important and not talked about often enough.
We are so busy in our lives that we neglect our emotional health. This weekend take a few moments pay attention to yourself - what emotions you are feeling and how they feel in your body. Then show compassion with yourself. This might include grounding, sipping on your favourite latte or tea, taking a bath or something else.
Your body will thank you (and so will those around you!!)

Let's keep talking about our eyes! Supplementing or eating for our eyes is essential. We often don't pay attention to our eye health until we are dealing with problems so there are so simple foods (or supplements) that can be taken.

Quercetin is a powerful anti-oxidant and natural anti-inflammatory. It helps relieve the inflammation in your nasal and sinus cavities thereby reducing pain and pressure and other inflammatory symptoms. It's a must-have!

Stinging nettle is a herb helpful in reducing inflammation, promoting detoxification and reducing your the allergenic immune response. It can be taken in combination with quercetin for a powerful anti-inflammatory punch.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, protects your cells from damage, reduces the severity of allergic reactions and helps your body to fight infections. When taken during allergy season, it can slow down the overreaction of your body to environmental triggers by decreasing your body's histamine production. It is a natural antihistamine.

Bee pollen - rich in nutrients, bee pollen when taking internally can actually help your immune system build resistance to potential allergens and, in turn, reduce allergy symptoms. It is recommended to ingest bee pollen made in your locality as it will contain local pollen.

Wyethia - Try this remedy when you experience extreme itching in the throat and palate that can extend to the ears; or a sore throat with hoarseness.

Allium Cepa - when nasal mucus irritates your nose or upper lip; your eyes are runny but the discharge is bland and non-irritating; you feel worse from warm rooms, and better in open air.

Natrum Mur - when you have a watery or egg-white-like nasal discharge; paroxysms of sneezing; chapped lips and cracks at the corners of the mouth; dark circles under the eyes; headaches.

Ok. So maybe you're wondering why I'm on the beef liver train? Tbh, I like to get my vitamins and minerals from food sources because they are better absorbed by the body and I know exactly what I'm putting in myself. From the whole "you got low iron - take this supplement" (that's a story for another day) to "foods aren't as rich in nutrients as they used to be" are just just a two reasons why I got on the beef liver train.
I'd rather promote something that gives you real benefit and is rich in nutrients and that your body will use!

May is commonly known as Mental Health Awareness Month.

I'd like to share three things in my blog with you about mental health because mental health issues are common and increasingly affect so many of us - I think particularly the last 2 years have had a huge detrimental impact on our emotional and mental health and we need some fresh perspective and some hope that there are some wonderful answers and solutions that are gentle, natural and restorative!

There is a close connection between the HPA (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal) axis and the HPT (hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid) axis which is why an imbalance in one can cause an imbalance in the other.

Chronic stress can lead to chronic inflammation increasing the body's demand for cortisol. Elevated levels of cortisol can directly suppress thyroid function by reducing the conversion of T4 to T3 which is the metabolically active form of thyroid hormones.

Sometimes people can experience symptoms such as fatigue, weight gain, menstrual irregularities, memory problems due to this imbalance but thyroid tests can present as 'normal.'

So many people these days experience chronic stress due to isolation, grief, financial stresses and more which can impact the HPA axis and HPT axis.
Working with a qualified practitioner to help identify and get to the root of chronic stressors is essential for healing HPA and HPT axis dysfunction.

One of my favourite healing modalities for HPA & HPT dysfunction is homeopathy as it can address the specific symptoms and stressors contributing to your health concerns.
