Taking the Medical Medium on vacation

When you take your healthy-living practices on holiday with you, it can feel like planning a stategic campaign but there are so many benefits. Does all this sound like such a lot of effort to make when all you want to do is go away on holiday like everyone else and "forget about it all", even the fact you have health challenges to deal with? The fact remains that, because I am prepared to make this monumentally huge effort to keep my diet stable and to continue the "good" eating practices that make up my day-to-day lifestyle, even when away from home, I cope far better with travel than I used to. I also get to enjoy my holiday more, knowing I'm not about to throw away all the healing momentum I've created in the months beforehand and that I'm not going to have to "pay for it later", like an overdraft made up of my own destabilised health. Here's how I do it...

Deep-diving the Medical Medium’s healing plan

If you are contemplating how to go about the deep heal from chronic illness or some mystery ailment (or collection or ailments) that have been with you for years, you could do no better than to deep dive into everything offered by the Medical Medium, Anthony William. Sharing my experiences...

Taking a breather

In many ways, looking back at 2017, it looks like I did or "achieved" next to nothing (and I'm not the only person to be saying this) and yet...sometimes, when we take a breather, its the most important thing we can be doing. Some thoughts on some of the powerful things that I feel I got out of a the long slow breath of 2017; perhaps you too.

The point of a holiday – and the hotel that reminded me

How do you reconcile a desire to "tread softly on the earth" and all your particular health requirements and preferences with the unpredictability and other variables of travel when you go on holiday? And what is a holiday or vacation meant to do for you? La Vimea is a unique "biotique" hotel in the South Tyrol that helped me to find out what was possible to achieve now and (hopefully) even more easily in the future...

Grounded: a healing journey using the principles of Ayurveda

Why do some highly spiritual, thoroughly blissed-out, appreciative and mindful people still struggle so with chronic health challenges? I have my own pet theory...and, using it, am already enjoying the benefits of being so much more grounded in my body than I can ever recall before. Enjoying the best of both worlds: my thoughts on using an Ayurvedic perspective to diet to bring yourself joyously back into the body!

Reclaiming our spirit – some thoughts on alcohol and self-love

I've been pondering humanity's troubled relationship with alcohol more deeply than ever, this last 18 months, since I stopped consuming it myself. Partly because the clarity of hindsight has allowed me to newly appreciate, and own, how alcohol was the bane of my life for just so many years; really, its consumption underlay some of the very worst experiences (and behaviours) of my life. In fact all of my biggest traumas except those relating to loss of a loved one had their foundations on a rock bed of alcohol-induced behaviours including some monumentally poor decisions and mindsets that had very far-reaching effects. The most pervasive of these was as a result of how alcohol imparted a subtle yet deadly sense of self-loathing that became deeper, more innocuous, year-on-year; only to be remembered like a faintly ringing Pavlov's bell each time I took another drink and thus snowballed into even more self-denigration with each occasion. I know these things for sure - the path to recovery requires that you take back your personal power, your responsiblity for your own health and that you unconditionally love (and respect) yourself; none of which are consistent with what alcohol, voluntarily, does to the body each time we consume it....
