A holistic and natural approach to health and wellness. Diet and nutrition education. Aromatherapy and Reiki.
Holistic Health and Nutrition Consultation Learn how to achieve and maintain a healthy mind and body by incorporating into your life natural therapies from Naturopathic, Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. The use of food as medicine, herbal and nutritional supplementation, homeopathics, relaxation therapy, physical exercise, energy healing and aromatherapy are all options in achieving holistic health and wellness. Custom Aroma-Therapeutic Blends Essential oils (EO's) are highly concentrated aromatic plant essences used in aromatherapy that have potent physical and emotional healing properties. Particular EO's can have an affinity for particular human personalities. Inhaling your personal blend increases the therapeutic value of your healing plan, physically and emotionally. Through simple muscle testing (Kinesiology) it can be determined what oils you have an affinity for. A custom blend will be prepared for you with a summary of each oil's "personality" and physical and emotional properties. Use your blend as a "therapeutic perfume". Add it to a lotion or bath or use it in a room spray and just inhale! Instruction on how to use your special blend is included. Aroma-Reiki Reiki is based on the belief that there is a "life energy", Ki, that circulates through and around all living things. Ki is very responsive to our thoughts and feelings. Negative thoughts can disrupt and diminish Ki causing an unhealthy state. A Reiki practitioner uses a series of hand positions on the (fully clothed) body to clear negative energy and stimulate the flow of healthy Ki so the body can heal itself. Essential oils have a profound effect on this energy as well and also on our emotional state, so Combining aromatherapy and Reiki makes for a deeply relaxing and healing experience!
Spring has sprung and so have seasonal allergies! There are numerous allergy medications out there but all drugs come with side-effects (some that show up years later!) Try a natural alternative. Quercetin, a bioflavanoid found in many foods, inhibits the release of histamine from your immune cells. Take it in capsule form before allergy symptoms or increase your consumption of citrus fruits, onions and shallots, apples, broccoli and summer squash. There is also a fair amount of quercetin in red wine and green tea.
For symptomatic relief (runny nose, itchy eyes, scratchy throat) try capsules of stinging nettle as needed. An added benefit of nettle is healthier hair and stronger nails!
