Friday 13th, Unlucky for Some

Friday 13th, Unlucky for Some

Friday 13th, Freaky Friday.  I have never really understood why. Some people are superstitious of numbers, some of black cats, some of walking over a certain number of drains; and others even more crazy things. This Friday 13th marks a D day for me, D as in Divorce.  The BIG D, especially at age 33, […]

The Way ‘back?’ to Health

The Way ‘back?’ to Health

The way back to health, or is that, the way to health?  As I’m not sure I’ve been at my best yet.. Having visited the M&S at Westfield recently, I bought up as many carrots, organic cucumber, organic spinach, lemons, ginger and a couple of other veggies as I could carry, and it’s brought up […]

An acknowledgement to kind people

An acknowledgement to kind people

Kindness.  Nothing less.. When I was about 17 I was starting to get closer to a long time flirting, high school time sweet heart. Within a couple of weeks, I cheated on him with his good friend, in his place.  I was drunk and stupid, had no idea what I wanted out of a relationship.  Since […]

New Year Same Old BS

New Year Same Old BS

It’s been quite refreshing to see different public figures NOT talking about setting new years resolutions, but perhaps I’ve managed to miss it through my lack of engagement with the mainstream media.. A friend asked me this week what super intention I had set for the coming year (yes we use the ‘intentions’ terminology rather […]

What You Look Like Versus How You Feel

What You Look Like Versus How You Feel

For many, many years; a lot of my eating and exercising choices have been made on how I presume them to make me look, not always putting the value on how I feel.  Have your ever been more concerned about what you look like versus how you feel?! Yes, I’ve had to eat and exercise […]

Probiotics, are they useful?

Probiotics, are they useful?

I’ve been recommended to take probiotic supplements for years; ever since I learnt that I had Crohn’s disease, friends and teachers have advised me to take this product or that product to repopulate my flora.  The doctors have never told me to do so, I didn’t really appreciate what my flora is and it all […]

Reiki, energy medicine

Reiki, energy medicine

Photo Credit Miguel Echiveria The word ‘Reiki’ is more common place than “Reiki & Seichem”.  This is because Reiki, on it’s own has been in the West a lot longer than being offered in combination with it’s sibling energy, Seichem, read below for a break down on these. I hear some skepticism around Reiki & […]

When to go to yoga Vs. When not to go to yoga

When to go to yoga Vs. When not to go to yoga

Photo on left curtousy of Miguel Echiveria, Photo right taken by C Suzuki @Froguesthouse, Lima It comes up relatively frequently for me, as a hunch, intuition or sometimes a humanistic rash judgement, without knowing someone’s full situation first (one reason I wanted to write this, to encourage people to open a dialog more before session starts); thinking someone […]

What I’ve learnt on a Plant Dieta

What I’ve learnt on a Plant Dieta

Before I embarked on this adventure to diet with a plant, i.e. the drinking of a medicine produced by boiling its bark (or other part of the plant/tree depending on the medicine prescribed for you); I had no idea what I was getting myself in for. I knew there would be plant ceremonies with the […]
