Thyroid Problems: Causes & Organic Remedies

Earlier this year, The Thyroid Secret burst onto our screens and, with it, came some shocking revelations. Created by thyroid pharmacist, Dr. Isabella Wentz, the documentary series revealed the truth about thyroid disease with one-to-one interviews with more than 100 leading thyroid experts, naturopaths, nutritionists, and medical professionals. The thyroid is the butterfly-shaped gland that sits at the base of the neck below the thyroid cartilage. The word ‘thyroid’ comes from the Greek word for ‘shield’ – and it is just that, organising and managing the body’s defences. The thyroid gland also controls... Read More

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. In my life, I have never met anyone like Zulia, for me she is the true essence of being a doctor- she promotes and embodies health, she comes from her heart and she selflessly serves humanity. 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

At Home Spa Day

In an ideal world, the best time of the year to go on retreat is when you need to. It’s that first moment that you start to notice that your body and mind aren’t quite connecting the way you like them to, and everything feels a little bit more of a struggle. In reality, however, most of us can’t take ourselves off at the first sign of a little imbalance. Jobs, families, money, time and all manner of responsibilities stand in our way.  Usually, we battle on regardless, until the... Read More

Winter Beauty Immersion

Each year I’m asked to comment on the perils of winter – the drying and chapping effects that the cold weather and central heating can have on our skin – but I have never been asked about winter’s beautifying potential. Every season – including winter – holds the essence of nourishment and beauty; we just have to follow its lead.  Winter is a time of hibernation and retreat: a season that offers stillness and warmth and the call to rejuvenate and replenish.  It’s the perfect time to turn one’s attention...

On the physical level, it exfoliates the skin, removing dead cells and so brightening tone and texture. It’s as if your entire skin is coated in a film of purity. On a more subtle level the scrub cleanses the astral body and strengthens the bio-energy field with... Read More

The Big Sleep by Ginnie Chadwyck-Healey

I wonder if you will reach the end of this article. I ask this because inevitably your mind will wander, an email or Whatsapp message alert will flash up and redirect your attention, a passer-by will direct a question at you, a train will arrive, your flight departure will be called, a child will tug at your leg and voice their needs, the doorbell will sound, you’ll hear ‘Next please’ in the queue… Or perhaps, just perhaps you might enjoy the quiet satisfaction of reading this, all of this, from start...
