Unleashing your inner music

I'm going to share with you the tremendous difference and pure healing that has taken place for me from taking up an instrument exactly one year ago. Yet this isn't a post about learning an instrument; not really. What I want to help you to do, here, is to re-learn (as I did...) the most important motivation of all, which is Do Something For You…JUST For YOU! Very great healing comes out of all your effort when you operate from this stance and its nothing to do with delivering a virtuoso performance. Perhaps this will be the very first time you let yourself do something for no other reason than the fact you want to and this can be a momentous breakthrough in any healing process.

Highly Sensitive…and owning it

From today, I'm going to start sharing a whole load of resources for the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) on my Living Whole Facebook page, as well as creating a resource section on this website. This is a true area of expertise for me since I am one and owning this has felt like such a massive … Continue reading Highly Sensitive…and owning it

Mind the gap – a spiritual perspective of chronic illness

If you don't think you are "spiritual", please don't be put off by the title but bear with me and try applying a little curiosity around this approach to healing, trusting that I'm not trying to convert you to my views but to help open up your own. We can be put off from the idea of having a "spiritual perspective" because we think it has something to do with being religious (I'm not!) or a little too "woo-woo" (OK, maybe a bit...) Really, we all have one; which is demonstrated just as soon as we consider "is this all there is to life?" and a part of us, no matter how tiny, asserts "no, it can't be"; in fact the very will to heal comes from this place - and this is you, getting in touch with your spiritual self.

Some thoughts on hay fever and gluten

I don’t want to add to the mountain of anecdotal coincidences that already muddle the health-matters domain when they are treated as “fact” but I want to share these observations about my own hay fever symptoms in relation to gluten consumption in case they hold any substance. As celebrated in one of my earlier posts … Continue reading Some thoughts on hay fever and gluten

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...
