Herbal Hormonal and energy boosters

 

Make a cuppa and join me for this short video blog. 

Today we are focusing on our video blog and herbal solutions for hormonal and energy boosting. 

Herbal energetics to improve your hormonal and energy levels, This involves the endocrine system and this becomes stressed when we have been over doing it. This is false fuel and we need to look after our adrenal hormones, our thyroid hormones and our sex hormones. This cascade occurs when you have a lot of excess energy used through projects and emotional stresses and you  end up crashing and loosing energy. We tend to inbalance our bodies by burning out this system. And our hormones are something we all want to take care of daily.

Herbal medicines are great as hormonal energetic boost through the pituitary gland and healing the glands from the top down. For energy we want to make sure that we find our balance.

The ginsengs are all good for adrenals. Panax ginseng is really good for men. The Siberian Ginseng is adaptogenic and really good for the whole body and great for women and children. Liquorice root is a very good tonifier for the whole body. So is rehmannia when used for adrenal and spleen strengthening. In this video blog I have covered some good herbal solutions to help you increase your energy. adding in adaptogenic herbal and really nice cellular energising herbals helps you gain your energy faster.

In this blog I talk about iodine and why you want to add it to your diet? Its great to keep your metabolism balancer and also what you can do to help increase your energy and boost your hormones today.

Enjoy.

Clearing Sexual energy workshop Maleny August 20th.

 

Hello and how are you?

This is our second newsletter within a week as we want to share with you our latest workshop on Kundalini Yoga and herbal medicines for clearing old sexual energies that may have imprinted on your body. This workshop idea came up when one of our lovely Kundalini yoga practitioners/student said that she had cleared so much in our last series of workshops with “Kundalini yoga love” in Maleny. So, we decided to hold this one day event between the moon eclipse and the sun eclipse this month in town.

Kundalini yoga was taught to me by Guru Das who was a direct student of Yogi Bhajan. There are many aspects to this practice and to me its about balancing the internal world with the external world and learning to cope and adapt to ever changing environments.  Its based on Kriya yoga and is a tantric practice. There is a warm up, kriya, meditation and relaxation in every Kundalini yoga class and we teach from ancient texts that are not allowed to be changed.  Yogi Bhajan brought this ancient science using all 8 limbs of the patanjali yoga sutras to America for Woodstock and then spread the practice globally.

In these workshops we follow the regime for Kundalini yoga and then we add our own practices for a wholesome and fully rounded healing workshop. You will be stimulated with educational resources that are practical and doable at home. Plus relax and really get a whole body experience of workshop, yoga and meditation.

Herbal medicines and nutritional dietary strategies to help you develop your own prana and allow you to release what no longer serves you. This is with a personalised approach to nutrition taking into account your whole body and lifestyle. What can you do to help release energies from the lower chakras and bring your nutritional and dietary vibration to a frequency that helps you release faster and restore your body faster?

Whole body recovery for optimal wellness

 

We have been talking with lots of people about whole body recovery and how to optimalise your wellness. To be energetic, vibrant, happy and focused on your projects is something we all want to develop and maintain.  Have you been clear in your mind? have you been feeling positive about your life and the choices you are making? In this blog I plan to cover some of my favourite tips to help you today!

To be really healthy and function to the best of our ability we need to consider whole body wellness. This is taking into account your physical body, your mind, your emotions and your outlook on life. Sometimes small tweeks in what we do make all the difference. We can think we are well and we can be feeling physically well while there are underlying and chronic inbalances to other aspects of our health. This can result in negativity, emotional stress, depression, pessimistic views and lack of drive. To help us feel better we need to take action in all of our life and be the change we want. Yes, its a matter of small changes that can make a big difference.

Whole Body recovery can take time, as we refine our lives. Here are my tips. 

  1. Make time for you. Yes this is important. Be present with yourself and be aware of how you are feeling, what you are thinking and what you are doing all the time. Be conscious and make sure you breathe deeply into your body. Pulling in quality oxygen. Breathing is the fastest pathway to relaxation and stress relief. There is a technique where you stop every hour and take three deep breathes. This is a great way to start the practice of conscious breathing. You can set the alarm on your phone so that you do this. Note the difference you feel after the breathes? Observe your whole body and see whether it makes you more relaxed. If so, keep doing it. Remember that oxygen in every cell in your body is fuel for energy and peace.
  2. Do the things that make you happy. Its our own responsibility to create our life, its also our responsibility to create our joy. Don’t look outside yourself for validation. Look within and make the refinements in lifestyle, diet and career choices that work for you. Then act on it… Do what you need to do… its no one else’s job to be you… everyone else is taken. So make yourself the best version of you that you can…. this leads to an acceptance of life in ways that allow opportunities. Drop the judgements and old story lines. be open to new experiences.
  3. Eat well. remember that we need to keep our cells clean and healthy so that we have good cellular replication and create new cells that are of high quality. Essential fatty acids, heavy metal chelators and proper balanced nourishment count at every meal. Eat what makes you feel good and nourished. My book THE MAGIC OF FOOD AS MEDICINE is a great guide to what foods will help you with specific ailments and wellness strategies.
  4. Look after your physical self, emotional self and mental self  to be healthy and balanced. This involves the use of herbal medicines and nourishing foods to target and focus on recovery and repair of your adrenals, your nervous system and calming your mind. In the video I have attached to this blog I give some great tips on herbs to take now at the end of winter to repair and restore your body.
  5. Have a morning practice and do it daily. This is your Sadhana. Yoga, walking, surfing,  making love, meditating, sun gazing and journalling are some ideas. Put yourself in your happy place at the start of the day. In Kundalini yoga we practice Sadhana so that we can let out the garbage that is in our minds and release what no longer serves us so that we can start each day afresh. This is the process of un layering ourselves so that we come to the core truth of who we are and are able to be simply ourselves without the bells and whistles that can create disharmony.
  6. Love and be loved. Give and receive, be generous and accept generosity, forgive easily and let things go that are not for your best wellness. Holding onto anything that isn’t going to help us only takes up excess weight and no one is paying rent in your body to hold their grievances and opinions there. So, be the most loving and generous person that you can be within the boundaries of your own self love and care. Make time for your loved ones and make your loved ones a priority. Have the feeling and nurturing of your friends, family, co workers and public that your meet daily. develop healthy relationships and allow each person their own quirky ways so long as they don;t hurt you and you don’t hurt them. Be kind and be compassionate to yourself and others.. this is a really important factor for keeping your mind, body and emotions healthy. One really nice practice is the old ” Random gifts of kindness and selfless acts of beauty” where you just be kind and gift something to someone daily.. just one, then it grows and grows.. Soon you are a giving kind soul everywhere.

Enjoy my video.

I am so inspired and passionate about herbal medicine solutions for everyone at home. We have been running our services for many years and now we are developing our concept of herbal first aid solutions that you can enjoy when you come to our free naturopathic  clinics in Festivals and events. We also offer this service to surfing communities globally and want to share the love more. Come see us at Splendour in the grass for your herbal needs and supplies.

 

Today I want to share with you whats in our herbal first aid kit that we offer at Festivals and events. This service is now 100% by donation and you choose what you offer us in return for this wonderful first aid given to you by our team of well trained and qualified crew. This service runs alongside our free naturopatic clinics where we give you advice. Now you can have your small injuries seen to and reduce your risk factors for illness at events even more. Simple and effective.

What we do?

Our aim in these services is to offer a buffer zone between your injury and the need for  conventional medical attention. So, we aim to get to your wounds fast when they are tiny and prevent further deterioration that may result in infections and painful inflammation. So, we help you mostly with the following injuries. Cuts, blisters, scrapes and small skin wounds. Rashes and abrasions on the skin. Bruises, painful and inflamed skin and injuries from being hit or falling. We also offer internal assistance with shock,stress ,food poisoning and nausea.  We often mix and match the herbs to get a really specific result for the patient and thats why we have these choices in the range. Everyone is different and we like to look after you and help you feel better asap.

Of course we have our full range of herbal medicines, skin balms and sprays to use in this service too, So don’t be surprised if we give you a little shoulder massage, spinal massage or rub your knees or feet to help you feel better.

We are a service that works quietly and naturally to help you stay well in festivals and events. We have been running this service at Festivals we attend and also offer it in some surfing communities. We are always happy to train you and to supply you with any herbs that you need for your herbal first aid service at home or for your community.

We use padding, medical tape, bandages and thats about it. We compress herbs onto injuries and we seal injuries to reduce risk factors for infections, bruising and inflammation.  We are not the only ones in these events offering first aid, You are free to go to the medics and regular services if you wish. We are offering pure 100% herbal first aid and old fashioned naturopathic techniques to help you stay well. We refer you to your Doctor or the medical teams in events if we know you need that. We have all networking in place to get you the best help fast tracked if needed and if its simple and a small injury then we can help you.  If we offer you internal solutions then we will make a note of any medications you are on and we will offer you a small dose of the herbs to help alleviate the situation and make you more comfortable.

We have small 50ml bottles of these herbs available for $10 each in the events so that you can take some home and use later. Larger sizes are available in our formulas and we have our free naturopathic advice to help you too.

Dream of the blue turtle. Allow rest and make food your medicine this wintertime.

Hello and I hope this blog/ newsletter finds you well and happy. Its wintertime here in the southern hemisphere and the weather at home has been beautiful over the last few weeks. Its been sunny, very little wind and delicious days where we can spend lots of time outside soaking up the sun. Thats the joy of living in Queensland and we are all making the most of these sun drenched days, as we know a cold snap will be here sooner or later. That means lighting the fire and keeping it going 24/7 until it warms up again. We love fires and we love the cool weather too, but it plays havoc with our immunity and really increases your risk factors for coughs, colds and flus.

My book THE MAGIC OF FOOD AS MEDICINE is a comprehensive guide to food as medicine and here I want to share with you my wintertime favourite foods as medicine and incorporate the importance and benefits of using the Traditional Chinese medicine system of the five elements to help you stay even healthier.

Dream of the blue turtle…. yes wintertime is the image of the turtle… think how it is slow and protected from the external influences with a big shell and a whole planet of ocean to swim in! 

We are in the water season, the winter, when everything is slower and in hibernation. Just imagine the beautiful peace and tranquility you get from rest, the necessary slowing down of your mind, body and workload to enjoy reflection, and to allow yourself the grace of spaciousness.

This is a good time of the year to write in your journal and internalise your thoughts and healing processes. Its a great time of the year to make those big pots of nourishing vegetable soups and take as much time as you need to self heal, catch up with meditation, mindfulness and day dream. Its winter, back off socially as much as you need to so that you can be like a bear in hibernation, or a turtle with its head tucked securely inside the shell, just chilling out to the vibe of tranquility. Resting up at home with a good book and allowing stillness to be your priority as much as possible.

Here are my wintertime tips to help you stay well incorporating our water element with our rest and reflection time. 

  1. Go with the flow. Yes, this is my first tip for wintertime wellness. Don’t try to change anything around you, instead try to adapt and go with the flow of the season. Slow down, snuggle up and reflect. Watch yourself and your responses to situations and especially watch your body and how your body responds to the flow of each day.
  2. Delicious Ginger. lemon and honey drinks are my number one winter food tip.  Simply take the juice of one lemon and pop it in your tea pot with 1 tablespoon of  fresh grated ginger, 1 tablespoon of fresh grated turmeric, 1 tablespoon of honey and a pinch of salt. Then add 500ml water and let infuse for about ten minutes before drinking. This is a really good booster for your body on many levels, its stimulating, anti inflammatory, pain relieving, reduces mucous congestion, is warming, and antimicrobial
  3. The kidneys and bladder are the organs we want to protect in this season because they are the body’s reflection of the water element in traditional Chinese medicine. If the fluids in the body are balanced, then the organs will be operating optimally and this is important as inflammation is the precursor to all chronic disease such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis and autoimmune conditions. Look after the kidneys and bladder with rich winter berries. Such as cranberry, mulberry and blueberry. They are high in antioxidants and help the body stay strong. Bitter foods, asparagus, milk thistle, dandelion, fresh greens are all good for the kidneys. Salty foods are recommended for this time of year as they balance fluids in the body and nourish with minerals, kelp, seaweeds and nuts are all good.
  4. Warming vegetable soups and roasted vegetable dishes are fabulous to keep you nourished and strengthen your immunity. beans, lentils, kidney beans, chickpeas and all those good dried foods are an excellent addition to your wintertime soups and add much needed protein to your diet. Mixing corn with beans is the easiest way to get complete protein from vegetable soups and roasts.
  5. Have cold shower blasts or keep swimming in the ocean, river or pool through the winter if you can tolerate the water temperatures. There is a great immunity reset that happens when we are immersed in cold water through the cooler months, just like the turtle. Not only does all the blood rush to our organs and flush them out, but after you come out of the water the body regulates temperature and you actually feel revitalised and warmer than before… Yes, its true, a little cold water makes you warmer.
  6. Herbs that I love in winter are andrographis for liver release of viruses and bacterias that could increase your chances of colds and flus. echinacea is great for the immunity and keeps you well if taken as a daily tonic, try some olive leaf extract if you think you have been exposed to winter illness. We make our herbal blends here in our dispensary and have a really beautiful Immunity blend and cough cold and flu blend. Its great to have some herbs in the kitchen for you to take if you feel the first twinges of illnesses.

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
