Stress Busters June 11 2015

Acupuncture is the ultimate stress buster.  I always tell my clients that they will leave with all the same problems they came in with but they won't care about them anymore! If time or money is limited I highly recommend EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) or tapping.  You can learn about it online but I love the book "The Promise of Energy Psychology".  Read chapter 2 and get started.  There are also...

Allergies 101 May 27 2015

There's a lot of pollen in the air this year!  Many people are unaware that Vitamin C is a natural anti-histamine.  Try 1,000 mg (a powder mixed with water would be easier absorbed by the body) a few times a day. And get yourself a neti pot.  It looks like a little tea pot.  Fill it with a lukewarm saline solution (try sea salt rather than table salt), lean over the sink, turn...

Natural Bug Repellent May 21 2015

For those who prefer to avoid chemicals, one of my clients used this recipe with great success in the middle of the woods!  The cinnamon oil must contain Eugenol and preferably be from Ceylon. For spray: Fill a bottle with 1/2 witch hazel and 1/2 distilled water.  Add a drop of rwo of cinnamon oil. Oil for a diffuser: Vegetable glycerine and a drop or two of cinnamon oil. This is the cinnamon oil...

Happiness 101 May 08 2015

Did you catch the report on the science of happiness on the National a couple of weeks ago?  Apparently we can be happy if we: are grateful try to love what we do spend time with family and friends But apparently most of us won't follow through because we are fooled into thinking that financial success will make us happy.  The reason financial success does not make anyone happy is because...

Adrenal exhaustion April 23 2015

One of the things that I talk about a lot with my clients is adrenal exhaustion.  So many people are fatigued constantly or have a significant drop in energy at some point in the day.  I would encourage anyone in that situation to see their physician or a naturopath but I'll share what I have learned. Your adrenals are a small gland that sit on top of your kidneys.  When...

Weight loss April 09 2015

I feel like such a hypocrite blogging about something I'm not going to join!  However, a client of mine lost a significant amount of weight recently using https://www.myfitnesspal.com/. She said that it has the most comprehensive calorie chart she's ever seen and that she just wasn't aware of the number of calories she was eating in the past.  So I checked it out.  You type in your stats and your...

Neurotransmitters March 27 2015

"The Edge Effect" by Eric Braverman, MD is a highly beneficial book that I didn't mention in "How I Recovered From Chronic Fatigue Syndrome".  That's because I didn't read it until I had already recovered. Apparently, when we reach 40 years of age our brains have trouble creating the neurotransmitters needed - serotonin, dopamine, acetylcholine, and Gaba.  Deficiencies can lead to problems such as dementia, ADHD, depression, anxiety, fatigue, obesity...

Narcissists 101 March 21 2015

Anyone who has been involved with a psychopath knows that one of their main characteristics is narcissism.  One of my clients who went to counselling after a run in with a narcissist was directed to this link.  It describes the three stages of a relationship with a narcissist very well.  They are so confusing!!! http://esteemology.com/the-three-phases-of-a-narcissistic-relationship-cycle-over-evaluation-devaluation-discard/

Our amazing brain! February 28 2015

Some of you may have seen Dr. Norman Doidge being interviewed on the National a few weeks ago.  I read his first book "The Brain That Changes Itself" which was fascinating.  It really opened my eyes to how much our brains can change and heal when damage has been done. His new book "The Brain's Way of Healing" shows how Autism, Alzheimer's, brain injuries etc. can be successfully treated.  And...

Watch it free until March 6th! February 21 2015

I just watched a very interesting documentary explaining why many mothers are questioning vaccinations, flu shots, GMO products etc.  Since so many children are becoming seriously ill I thought I would share it.  Here's the link: www.boughtmovie.net/  

Menopause 101 February 06 2015

I found a product that got rid of my hot flashes and had to share.  It's called "Endo Code F" by Physica Energetics.  The girls at the health food store recommended sage pills but that didn't work for me.  According to Irene Gerber who does bio-calibration locally, Endo Code F is also great for mood swings. I have been reading about bio-identical hormones in "The Wisdom of Menopause" by Dr....

Psychopaths 201 January 27 2015

I had yet another client in today who is suffering due to a psychopath in her life!  She used to be a confident woman and now finds herself suffering from anxiety I learned years ago from an article in Readers Digest (September 2011) that many who have had bad experiences with psychopaths suffer from PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).  I couldn't access that article online so I scanned it and...
