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

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
