A NEW HEALTHY LIFE-STYLE – EXERCISE

Our bodies are designed to move…a lot. Everything in the body is in constant movement, inside we are like a beautifully designed machine where everything fits together. But the machine needs to work (move) to function. When we move circulation is enhanced; oxygen in, toxins out. There is no other way to do this. WhenContinue reading “A NEW HEALTHY LIFE-STYLE – EXERCISE”

STRESS & PRIDE

One thing I have noticed time and time again is that many people seem to be very proud of their stress. They are forever listing all the things they have to do, and if you do not praise them they get upset. They are the people who always do more than anybody else. If youContinue reading “STRESS & PRIDE”

CARE: health-professionals and aromatherapy

Over the years I have held training courses and workshops on aromatherapy for health-professionals. Mind you, this is not “true” aromatherapy which is individual-based, but the essential oils can be useful in many different areas such as stress-management, care for the elderly, hospice, handicap, physiotherapy and much more. I create safe blends to be usedContinue reading “CARE: health-professionals and aromatherapy”

STRONGER THAN YOU THINK – BELIEVE IT!

SELF-HELP

There is a saying; “don’t give them fish, teach them how to fish”.

We have become so used to the quick fixes ofContinue reading “SELF-HELP”

NUTRITION AND HEALTH

By now most of you know how important nutrition is to me. I agree with Hippocrates who said: “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine your food.” I truly believe this is the straight and wide – if not always so easy – road to health. So today I want to introduce somebodyContinue reading “NUTRITION AND HEALTH”

CHANGING LANES

Tonight I met a young lady that has been a client of mine. When she came to me a few years ago she had just embarked on the journey of the eternally slim = anorexia/bulimia. She was also “self-medicating” = vodka and cocaine. She had just turned 17, was the biggest liar on earth andContinue reading “CHANGING LANES”

Wellness is Balance – Balance is Lifestyle

Since I started working with wellness and health, 20 years ago, a lot has changed in society. At that time alternative medicine was still scoffed at, if an illness couldn’t be cured with medicines, it was imagined. Stress was seen as a weakness and nutritional knowledge was the information recieved from ”The national board ofContinue reading “Wellness is Balance – Balance is Lifestyle”
