The Planting Festival this weekend.

Hello and welcome to my latest newsletter blog, as you know we have been going to a lot of festivals over the last year. Its lovely when you manufacture such beautiful herbals to go out and offer our free clinics and herbal first aid service in these places. we have met so many wonderful people and assisted with keeping you well in these places.

We have been setting up out at Woodfordia for the last day to open this evening for you to enjoy our services. We have traditional medicineroom medicinal services going this weekend. This includes our free naturopathic clinics open from 5pm Friday evening and daily across the festival from 9am till about 10pm. You can call by for medicinal herbal elixirs, herbalist assistance and our divine and favourite herbal body products.

I’m really excited about this weekend. Saturday morning I will be at Eumundi markets and beautiful Darina my naturopath sister is open at the festival looking after us on Friday night and Saturday day time. I am presenting at the Grove venue Saturday at 4pm on herbal first aid at home. This topic will go into the simple foods that you may already have in your garden or kitchen shelf  There are so many curative and preventative medicines right at our finger tips and I will show you how to use them to help you stay well as preventatives, as well as how to use them for acute injuries.

Then on Sunday, I am presenting at 10.30am again in the Grove about prebiotics and how they can help you stay well. There are so many wonderful ways we can use herbs as immunity boosting tonics. Come and say hello at the stall. I will be there all Saturday evening and Sunday.

Eucalyptus balm we made this week for winter wellness

One of the greatest pleasures about being a herbalist is to make the herbal skin balms. before a festival we always step up on making enough for the event. This week has been no exception. Its Friday evening and we are in the dispensary making peppermint and chamomile skin balm for you…. So beautiful on your skin with the lushness of local Obi Obi Olive oil and local Kilcoy avocado oil…. we use organic chamomile flowers blended with organic peppermint leaf that is so aromatic And, of course we add therapeutic doses of essential oils.

Today Peppermint Balm is our favourite.

This balm is great for spinal alignment in body work. When massaged into the great letting go points across your front shoulders, then it completely relaxes the somatic nervous system and helps you stay relaxed. As we know all nerves travel through the spine at their energetic and physical core. So, massaging this oil across your back is incredible to help that energy pass through and work on the strong Yang bladder lines, resulting in a relaxed body and allowing space for small realignments to naturally occur. This balm is cooling for feet and increasing circulation through the whole body whilst relaxing your emotional body is a pretty good reason to try some.

Also this balm with the combination of peppermint and chamomile is great for headache and tension relief. A really great digestive balm when massaged through the hara which is located around your belly button in a circular radius up to the bottom ribs and low to the hip bones. If you feel any constipation, digestive disorders or pain in this area them our balm really helps.

Have a lovely weekend and hope to see you at the planting.

with love and blessings Dom. Here is our website details. xoox

Boost your immunity now for a healthy winter season

Hello and welcome to my latest blog/newsletter 

Over the past week we have set up some events and sent you out emails about these individually. This blog is practical information to help you boost your immunity in the next few months so that you are healthier for winter and less vulnerable to coughs, colds and flus. 

The best cure is prevention. 

We all know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure…. so I want to share with you some really easy strategies that you can use today at home from your kitchen to help you stay well and reduce your risk factors for illnesses in the colder months.  Basically the fastest way to get sick is to become vulnerable physically, emotionally and mentally which will send automatic triggers to your immunity to kick in and protect you. So it makes sense to protect your body as a whole. That is the connection between our mind, our emotions and our body are super important.

Look after your physical body with good clean natural and unprocessed foods. The logical approach is to eat fresh fruits and vegetables and clean proteins as your main diet. Reduce the processed foods and keep away from any artificial preservatives and additives. The simplest solution is to cook your own food at home as much as possible. When we prepare our own food we know the base ingredients and we also know where the food came from. We know that the food is cooked with the best we can get at the time. We also know that the person who cooked the food is healthy and this prevents the spread of local illnesses such as colds and flus in the cooler seasons.

Also add these ingredients to your food as often as possible…. 

  1. Garlic.… its the number one antimicrobial herb that works on killing any infections that are in the body as well as cleansing your blood and strengthening your whole system.  Its a fabulous cardiovascular tonic and the number one herb to add to any meal that is savoury. If you add chlorophyl to the garlic it will rid the garlic breathe that often comes with this food. Eating garlic fresh is easy, just slice it up and add to cooking.  You can add it to juices and salads raw too. Raw fresh local garlic is my favourite and I do avoid buying imported garlic as much as possible. Gardeners its almost time to plant yours for the season. Simply pop a small hole in the ground and add a clove of garlic, cover with soil and then look after by watering and fertilising through the winter and spring. Then on the longest day of he year its ready, dig up the garlic and you have your own organic garlic at home.
  2. Ginger.… Stimulates circulation, clears the body of poisons, works as a deep cleanser for all cellular activity and research is showing this herb to be a great anti cancer preventative…. Its a great antiinflammatory and a fabulous allergy relief herb that really works on the liver and clears out many old toxins whilst strengthening the body. Its really warming and great for mental function. Ginger can be grated into meals and can be used during cooking and also added afterwards.. We love hot ginger lemon honey drinks.. Simply take a bulb of ginger and grate into your tea pot, add a blob of honey and some fresh lemon. This is wonderful to clear the lymphatic system and decongest the whole respiratory tract.
  3. Turmeric, all those awesome antioxidants are really beneficial in the cooler season… warming and also great to kill pathogens of all sorts.. eat turmeric everyday and you will stay well. All of these foods I’m mentioning here are really great daily additions to your diet. Turmeric works on your mind and body detoxing the phase two pathway in the liver it removes long built up hormones and old medications plus helps your hormones be balanced with excess estrogens being deleted. Turmeric has so much great research in many health aspects.. pain relief, inflammation reducing and also super protective for the whole body.
  4. Chilli.. yes chilli is wonderful , in the digestive tract it will kill most viruses and bacterial infections within 24 hours of eating it. It gets down to the large intestine and kills off any festering pathogens that are waiting to grow and develop illness in your body.. Just a small amount of chilli added to meals will also boost your metabolism which helps your body rid itself of illnesses faster.
  5. Chamomile…. add chamomile tea to your daily regime especially at night so you can sleep well. Its also really antimicrobial and helps the respiratory tract reduce ailments.. great as a cough preventative too.

There are many herbs we use in the herbal dispensary in the form of medicine… Andrographis, echinacea, ganoderma mushroom, olive leaf, cats claw, astragalus, tulsi, elderberry, thyme, sage to name a few. We make some beautiful formulas for you to help you stay healthy. Please talk with us if you would like some assistance

We are all on our own journey to wholeness, plus our latest schedule.

Hello and welcome to my latest Blog.

In this blog / newsletter I cover info on my journey, your wellness and also our latest schedule. Thanks for reading this and we welcome you to contact us as required for nutritional, naturopathic and herbal medicine support.

I’m so positive that this year is a time for us all to become consolidated in who we are and to do the internal work we need so that we are able to express ourselves in a positive and helpful way to others. There is so much information around about development and self empowerment. Its great that we can learn so much from these sources and I hope that this blog/ newsletter uplifts you and helps you in some way.

We meet so many beautiful people in our clinics and naturopatic consultations. It always inspires me how well everyone is doing in your lives and how we all can overcome adversity in our various ways.

Everyone I know faces adversity… and the sign of developing our character and our inner resilience is our ability to step one foot in front of the other and just get on  with it… Its one of the things I respect and love about everyone I meet.

It doesn’t matter who you are.. No one else will see whats going on unless you choose to share it. The people we admire and look to for advice are al the same as us.. we are all going through our stuff… our personal challenges.  Every day we all face something that may be challenging and offer us the opportunity to become the victim… or become the master of change…Its important that we take these moments and we think.. then we act and respond to the world in a solution based manner. That is to look at the issues at hand and to think ” How can I influence this in a way that will help everyone?”

Personally I have just come out of a really challenging phase in my personal life. I was married for 30 years and made the decision to leave that relationship because I felt that I had no choice. When I say that I mean to say that the marriage was not where I could see myself in the future. It was the hardest decision I have made in my life and I had to live with the consequences on many levels. Now I am at the tail end of that decision and in a new world where I am alone  and independent. Its really good for me. I am learning new ways to respond to situations and I am learning a lot about self love and development. I know that I need to keep on learning and growing and that I need to have respect, compassion and love for those in my family who travel on this journey. I also know that I made the right decision.

Sometimes life throws a curve ball at us and we need to make the tough decisions. I did that and know there are more to come… Its the same for all of us. Sometimes we just need to do that because if we don’t, then we will be always thinking about it and then we don’t act.. and if we don’t be true to ourselves, then we will miss what we need to do. Its called following our intuition and trusting in life and trusting in the fact that there is more unknown than that which we know. I hope that made sense to you. I guess I’m trying to encourage you to listen to your heart and be heart driven in your decisions. Just because something worked for you in the past does not mean it will be there in the future.. we all grow we all learn.

These decisions can be anything. We all travel our path. It may be work, home, relationship, lifestyle, addictions, education. Its when we have to step up and out of our current patterns and be open to new environments that will help us become our optimal selves and bridge that gap between our ideal self and our actual self. If you find yourself questioning your life in any way, then I recommend that you address it with help from friends, family and counsellors, mentors and people who are supporting you. But most of all. Its intuition that guides us and our trust and belief in the divine independent journey we are all to take. Make time for meditation, silence and reflection in your life so that you can discern the real changes you need to make from the illusions that may distract you from your journey to wholeness. Be brave in life.. and make decisions that benefit yourself and your loved ones for the highest good of all. That means being open and honest in communication and finding solutions to your issues. The sooner you face it with grace and compassion the sooner you will see the solutions… I wish you the best.

It all comes from the inside.. So its important that we find our daily ways to deal with our own minds and our lives. Personally I have my Kundalini yoga Sadhana each morning where I do my yoga Kriya and meditate with specific chants, mudras and meditations that were handed down by Yogi Bhajan to help release what no longer serves us and clear our energy and protect our energy. It makes me feel good. And thats what counts… You may walk, run, do yoga, meditate, surf, or reflect on your life in whatever way helps you. But whats most important here is that you do it.. that you make time for you and you make time to make the changes you need within so that life can flow for you in harmony and peace. Each us us need’s find our own way.. my way is not your way.. Please note that I am sharing my journey openly so that I can encourage you to do the same. Please contact me if you want to visit me on this topic.

On that topic of hard decisions and the fact that we all go through our own journey. I want to say that you need to keep your nervous system strong all the time. For me its the most important thing with any client I see. Anyone who has worked wth me in Herbal medicine knows that I believe we need to get rid of the fractures and weakness in our nervous system on a regular basis to develop resilience and increase our capacity for clarity and wellness. It doesn’t matter what the condition is you have with your body. You need a strong nervous system and a strong emotional body to cope. Please talk with me about herbal solutions.

The best herbs to help you strengthen your nervous system are hypericum, chamomile, valerian, tulsi, damiana, melissa, rhodiola, hops, and at the same time adrenal recovery herbs such as liquorice, ginseng, withania, asparagus and maca. We love formulating for you. So please chat with us. Its our core business to provide you with the best organic herbal formulations to help you on your lifes journey. You know we make them all here in our dispensary in Maleny which you are welcome to visit for a private consult with me.

New Years Best Wishes to You! Come to Sri Lanka with me in Feb my friends for a journey of food and wellness

Hello and happy new years blessings and manifestations of wellness and beauty in your lives! 

What a beautiful life we live! We are so blessed to be in Australia. I am always grateful for the beauty and political safety we have here. The Woodford Folk Festival just finished and we are home now preparing for the market tomorrow at Eumundi. The weather over the festival stayed sultry, hot and fairly dry… Then the rain came after we arrived home in Maleny and its just beautiful. Grey skies and intermittent rain all day. Great for relaxing and also great for getting the herbals organised again.

We operated The Medicineroom in The Blue Lotus precinct and it was our forth pilot of the Herbal Elixir Bar and its getting better and more refined. If you visited us there please email me and give me your feedback on where you think we can develop the medicneroom’s presentation and services in the Festival. I like to constantly refine, so please let us know your views.

The Folk Medicine Program across the Festival was supported by some of the best Australian and International presenters in wellness and health care. Each year the program becomes more niche with our demographic and once again we did some amazing yoga sessions, listened to emerging nutritional and medicinal trends, and we got to dance, and chant and sleep while doing yoga again! Thank you everyone who contributed to this collective vision of peace and high vibes!

Summertime Wellness plus Zen Thai student clinics open now. Kevin James Carroll visiting Maleny in January

Welcome to my latest newsletter/ blog. 

In Maleny its been hot and feels like summer already. We’ve had a few of those beautiful summertime afternoon storms this week and they are so refreshing. We send love to people in New Zealand in the Mainland who had that terrible sequence of earthquakes this week. we send love to all of you who are healing from pain and grief in life and wish our patents and friends speedy recovery from illness.

In this blog we have news of Kevin James Carroll visiting Maleny again in January. We share the details of the latest Zen Thai student clinics and have a few nice summer time recipes for refreshing stress relief and rejuvenation. We also have details of our summer schedule and wellness shop festive season offerings. Plus our current Kundalini yoga class details in Maleny. I hope you enjoy.

I trust you enjoyed the beautiful moon over the last few days… 

The vibration of the full moon is evident for three days before its peak and for three days after. This is a time when we can reflect on what needs healing in our lives and what we want to create for ourselves and the world around us. The moon this week has been so beautiful and powerful. Its a great time to reflect on your life and look forward into your future and decide what you want to develop further. Make a mental note to look after yourself and be positive in your thoughts. Create time each day to meditate and be still in your mind.. Take the thoughts that come in your meditations and let them pass through your mind like waves coming to the beach, coming in and going again.. thats what we can do with our thoughts, let them come and let them go.. watch them like the ocean and don’t hold onto them… they are passing.. be the observer in your mind… then take ideas and concepts that you know will serve your best interests and allow them to become something meaningful in your life… Let go of the fears, the illusions and the fantasies… develop the meaningful , doable and practical aspects of your thoughts into actions that will improve yourself and your world. This full moon is very much about that and about us developing understanding of what is for our highest good and what needs to be finally dropped and released into the abyss of the past… allowing us a brighter and more confident future.

Herbs are our first medicine. 

Taking a natural and positive approach to wellness can benefit us and those around us.. There are beautiful herbal medicines to help us feel better within and to allow us a deeper sense of positivity and stress relief. It gets busier as the festive season approaches and sometimes old feelings of anxiety and pressure emerge as we take on the extra work load needed for us to have some relaxation time with friends and family. One of the things about summer and festive activities is that we need to prepare gifts, foods and celebration events for everyone we love. We all want to have a joyous time over summer and to truly feel relaxed.

Taking nervine herbs can really help Simple herbal teas such as lemon balm. passion floweer, chamonile and damiana are great for your daily drinks. Making herbal teas and popping them in the fridge and drinking as cooling beverages is refreshing and calming. Simply make a pot of herbal tea, let it cool down and then filter into a jog and cool down. add some ice and a sprig of mint or basil when you serve these drinks for some easy relaxing medicine and a nice alcohol free drink to share with visitors and family.  Add some honey and lemon juice for extra antii inflammatory benefits

Raw summertime vegetable soup 

We had our Pain and inflammation workshop here on the weekend. I made one of my delicious versions of Raw Summertime vegetable soup.

Simply take cucumber, tomato, red onion, basil, mint and lemon juice with a dash of salt and some spices of your choice and dice very finely. or run through the bullet. Place in a jar in the fridge and leave over night. Then serve chilled at lunch or dinner the next day. Its refreshing, delicious and goes down a treat. Read holistic Bliss magazine in Dec and Jan edition and my full version of tis recipe is in there, its a great festive season soup that is raw, fresh and hydrating with loads of health benefits.

We love sharing our wellness and joy with you. Blessings to you for all you are and all that you can become. Be positive and look to the future with appreciation for the past, yes a definitive knowledge that we are here now, we are At-ha… that is the first yogic sutra from the ancient texts that means now.. now present in this moment. now is all we have . now is where we need to stay in awareness,keeping our hearts and minds aware and open, knowing that what has gone can not be relived and what is to come is unknown.. At- ah  now…. its beautiful… and a great way to live. Enjoying each moment for what it is.. accepting the circumstances in life and doing our best to make each moment as joyful and as vibrant as possible… Blessings to you and yours.
