Hope, New Beginnings & Opportunities

We have lived through another year of a pandemic, a multitude of uncertainties, cancelled and rearranged plans, restrictions and cautions. Fully embracing the New Year can be tricky when plans are having to be made with trepidation and a niggling feeling that they might not happen. When a new year arrives there is a temptation to want to make huge change, to transform and overhaul ourselves, our bodies and our lives; New Year, New You. These expectations can be incredibly hard to meet and even when we have achieved these... Read More

The gift of Christmas presence

During the festive season, it’s natural for us all to feel some degree of stress or anxiety. The meeting of multiple expectations, trying to see everyone and planning and delivering the perfect day. Social media can often provide an unrealistic representation of a ‘ perfect Christmas’. This can lead to a lot of stress with many of us not being able to relax and enjoy the day. Over the past 18 months, we’ve all missed seeing our loved ones, celebrating life-changing moments in our friend’s and families’ lives, and the... Read More

Boswellia Oil

Boswellia is a plant that produces Indian frankincense, known in Sanskrit as “shallaki” and in Latin as Olibanum Indicum. Boswellia extracts influence skin-aging processes positively: dysfunctions in the skin barrier are repaired, inflammatory processes and collagen damages are reduced, and heat shock proteins and anti-microbial peptides are stimulated as protective factors. At ila, we use a unique blend of 3 different types of Boswellia extracts, taken from the resin of the Frankincense trees from three different regions – India (Boswellia Serrata), Africa – Somalia/Ethiopia (Boswellia Papyrifera) and Middle East –...

Thyroid Problems: Causes & Organic Remedies

Earlier this year, The Thyroid Secret burst onto our screens and, with it, came some shocking revelations.

Boosting Ojas

I have always loved this time of the year in the UK; there is a beautiful, rich and vibrant energy surrounding late autumn and the beginning of winter. Nature’s colours of purple, magenta, burnt orange and yellow reflect the most exquisite light and there is a final burst of energy and vitality before winter pulls us in. Consciously tapping into this positive flow is one of the best ways to boost our ‘ojas’, a particular form of radiant energy that the Yogis perceive as our ‘essence of vitality’ or ‘the... Read More

Body Power, Immunity and Protection

A few days ago I was talking to a very dear friend Dr Zulia Frost.

We talked about the best healer on the planet right now is ourselves… our incredible body, its beyond intelligence and its power to heal, to protect itself if we ‘give it a chance’. We explored what ‘giving it a... Read More
