Bear this in mind when you consider even the best-intentioned elimination diet. Cultivating joy is central to everything if we are to thrive in life at all…and its an insider job. Take away your entitlement to prepare, look forward to and then relish, without undue fear, some of the most natural and delicious, healthy, food sources that others take for granted and you are quickly placed on a road to isolation, disillusionment and dispair. You begin to wonder what you have done to deserve such a thing…and this is certainly no route to healing!
Food as frequency
Diving in on the assumption that my readers know I talk about the current era as one of evolutionary transition (see footnote below), I want to talk about how my relationship with food has evolved, and revealed itself more fully, over the course of a lifetime. We live in shape-shifting times and our relationship with … Continue reading Food as frequency
Like having your cake and eating it
Sharing what it feels like to be so much more grounded in the body...at last; having put that to the test in the city for two days that turned out very differently for this highly sensitive person. So what made all the difference? Offering hope to others with sensitivities that keep them from taking part in life.
Are you still getting over Christmas?
To those of us that are Highly Sensitive People (HSPs), the festive season can feel almost unbearably charged or even toxic, including high exposure to people and behaviours that we normally manage to avoid; and that’s not just within our families and friends, since many of us are empathic enough to feel the general mood of the collective. There are many more toxic byproducts than that; some obvious and some less so (read my full article for more on that). The effect can be like an energetic hangover that takes some time to get over; so how do we do that and, when do we start asking, is it worth it or is there another way to behave, that feels more in sync with who we are, at the end of the year? Is this, in fact, what our bodies are trying to tell us?
The vagus nerve: leading us back to our health
There's literally nothing to lose and everything to gain from a healthier vagus nerve. Like all the best paths, it starts out a little mysterious but that's where its adventure lies. I've certainly had cause to explore it lately as its been found to have just so many links with the most chronic, mysterious, health conditions....and here's what I found out (to my benefit, maybe yours). So, having found it and become so much more aware of it, I like to think the vagus nerve is a path worth following as, so it turns out, it may very well lead us back to ourselves in more ways than one!
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
Encouragement for those who are on the path of gold…
I was thrilled to happen upon a long excerpt from the Medical Medium's book Thyroid Healing today, on Facebook (from his blog), because it is my favourite passage from that book. The first time I read it, I got goosebumps because he describes exactly how I have regarded my own trials and tribulations with health … Continue reading Encouragement for those who are on the path of gold…
The frequency of healing
Though many people look to the expertise of others to heal them, we are all fully equipped to work with the quantum level of life, where every moment is, as it were, a choice between particle or wave; substance or frequency and we get to choose outcome. A nano-second’s choice, at any level of life … Continue reading The frequency of healing
Getting to grips with OCD
A new article about OCD popped into my emails this morning and it was so compelling that I felt I had to share it with my readership here...
The electrolyte connection
I thought I knew about electrolytes but this feels like a whole new breakthrough in my understanding of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue...and it was right under my nose all along. Get to know your electrolytes (and how to replenish them) to deeply energise your life.
