Blue Lotus Woodfordia.The good oil!

Its summertime and we are all really busy in the herbal dispensary making balms, nectars, herbals and formulas.  Yes, we’re at Woodford folk festival for 2017/18 located right next to The Blue Lotus venue. Thank you so much everyone who comes to visit us at our free naturopathic herbal clinic. This year our team are all qualified naturopaths, herbalists, nutritionists and we are open from 7am each morning until 9pm for herbal support and love in the festival.

Summer is coming… its time to smile!

Hello and welcome to my blog

SUMMER IS COMING ITS TIME TO SMILE! 

Here at medicineroom we are so excited for this summer! Its time to get out with nature, enjoy your life and follow your passions! Yes its fire time, its the flowering of what you have been planning through spring time and its time to cool down in water when you need to relax! Thats right. In Traditional Chinese medicine summer is the time of flaming manifestations! In my eclectic world of medicine its all about enjoying the fruits of your labours and making hay! Yes that old saying is really about creation and manifestation of wellness, health, beauty and joy! So smile, enjoy and stay healthy with plenty of fresh air, nourishing foods, exercise and relaxation.  Keep your attitude positive and uplifted and keep your body bouyant and well nourished with lighter summertime foods and fresh fresh fresh as your theme for diet and lifestyle!

How you can make that work for your health and wellness?

Herbs are our first medicine and this summer you can take a really beautiful tonic that will boost your energy, enhance your adrenal glands, keep your metabolism stable and keep you on top of the heat! Talk with us and we can formulate for you.

Some ideas I have are echinacea which works on boosting immunity, keeping you strong and energising you on a cellular level. Adaptogenic herbs are great at this time of year as they balance the whole body, lets have some siberian ginseng, ashwanganda ( withania) bacopa and a dose of beautiful Olive leaf to boost us and help us increase our cellular energy.

After all that detoxing in spring you must be feeling energised and ready to take on the world! This is great, however we need to look after our body, keep our heart calm, keep our body cool and pace ourselves so that we can achieve our best projects with love and passion. Summer foods are red, orange, and did you know that eating foods at room temp is better for your body than cold food? Yes thats right, this makes your body temp stable and allows your metabolism to be optimal.

Eat 50% of your diet raw at least. Grow delicious summer time vegetables in your garden and enjoy the fruits  of the season. My book The magic of food as medicine is a wonderful guide to fruits, vegetables and herbs and allows you to know why these foods are your first medicine! Keep adding lemon juice and quality vinegar to your diet so that you have good liver function and keep mucous in your body at bay! Add in some quality oils and make sure you get enough protein. about 30% of your diet is perfect protein. Not too much, not too little. Keep it balanced.

Keep up your vitamin B! we love brewers nutritional yeast for this and its cheap at your local co op and health food shop. Vitamin B is a co factor for the synthesis of protein and helps make super enegised new cells in your body. Its also a vegetarian source of Vitamin B 12 and folic acid which makes tis a must eat food for anyone who doesn’t have yeast allergies!

Please call us or email me for wellness assistance! 

I am presenting at Woodford Folk Festival almost Daily in The Blue Lotus.  Its been a few years since I graced the stage at woodford and shared some of my herbal medicine wisdom and learnings, so I am pumped to be doing this for you!

About this project. 

As you possibly know I have been dedicated to wellness events for about ten years now. Its such an honour to be a programmer at The Woodford Folk Festival and our leader and mentor Bill Hauritz has been a big influence in my life by teaching me about festivals and giving me a role in this event that allows me to grow and develop my passions and skills. I did a masters in health promotion to help me understand events and wellness better. So now, after two pilots we are presenting our event for two days, across four venues, 39 presentations of 90 minutes each over two days in Maleny township.

 I am so grateful that my friends have come to the party this summer and are joining us for our event in Maleny on January 20 plus 21st 2018.  We have such a great line up and I want to share it with you here in my medicineroom blog!

Water Fasting

                                     Water Fasting… Clean, pure and the most natural way to develop wellness.

 

Water fasting has always been my number one preventative health strategy! Its the easiest and most powerful way to clear your body of all congestion and toxins. Its also simple…. simply perfect when you have a weekend to rest and to rejuvenate

Please read my book The Wellness zone to get my full writings on water  fasting and why water is so good for our body. In there I also write about how our body converts other nutrients to water.

Water fasting is best done for a 24 hour period initially until your body is used to the process.  That is going from alate lunch or early dinner and then only drinking water and herb teas with no additives or sweeteners for the whole 24 hours. It takes the body 24 hours to exhaust the livers fuel supplies and then the body goes looking for fats to convert to fuel. Once all the fat is gone the body will then eat protein to make fuel. This is starvation and on your water fast you are not starving your body. You are only going to fast for short periods of time say 24 hours to 72 hours on a regular basis and use fasting to be your strongest preventative health care strategy.

Watch the you tube clip we made today about water fasting.  I go into a lot more detail than this written blog and I also share information about specific time frames for action and how to do my water push. 

When you are on a fast you need to have time to rest, you need to be in a place where you can relax. I always turn off the technologies and really make time for self nurturing, reflection and peaceful environment.

If you get headaches or start feeling sick on your fast, it means you are pulling toxins out of your body really fast and you may need to end the fast and go to juice cleansing for a few hours to allow the pain to go away. Feeling sick and headache son fasts often mean that you have stepped over your comfortable edge and you are moving too fast with the process. If this is the case you can either ride it out and keep flushing the body with water until the headache and pain is gone…. the most healing way, but also the most uncomfortable. Or you can make a juice or eat some food and then have a fast again in a few days when you are feeling better.  Don’t worry you have still removed a lot of toxins.

Do not water fast until you have detoxed on a regular basis and are seasoned in detox therapies. Don’t fast if you are on medications or you are under your health care practitioners supervision for any health condition that is chronic and requires management. If you are weaning yourself off any substances, poisonous lifestyle habits or emotional baggage, then be extra gentle and kind with yourself. You are such a complex and refined machine that changes in diet, especially this one can be very powerful and have impacts beyond the physical health benefits of less congestion and poisons in your system. The other effects of detoxing are emotional releases and mental releases and old memories coming up to be healed and released. Detoxing and water fasting are all about letting go of the old, and letting go of what no longer serves us so that we can move on with our lives in a healthier way on all levels.

End your water fast with pure grated vegetables or fresh fruit.

Lots of love and blessings

Juice Cleansing

 

Hello and welcome to my blog this week.

 

Juice cleansing is loads of fun, its really the simplest way to eat and get nourishment in our system and its something we can do for one day, one weekend, or even one week fairly joyfully! 

There is so much info on juice cleansing and I have taken an overview here from my work. Read my books for really comprehensive guidelines!

Always stay present with your juice cleansing, only do it while it feels good for your body. Stop if you start to be stressed or if you feel sick… remember that a lot of old built up toxins will be shaken up and released with this deep cleansing method. Talk with your health care practitioner if you are not well, taking drugs, prescription medicines or you are on a specific health regime!

 

With a juice cleanse you need to be really in tune with how you are feeling at the time. 

Tune into your body and don’t commit to a time frame for this cleanse as its really powerful and you may find that as toxins come out of the liver and travel around your blood stream that you get headaches, pain, inflammation, emotions like anger and resentment and grief. If this is the case then you need to eat something and tone down the detox to slow it down again. Then you can go back to juices once those poisons have passed through the body again. Its a wave.. Juice cleansing is a wave of detox patterning and you need to tune into that day and whats best for you. You may plan a whole weekend detoxing on juices only to find that you only have a juice cleanse for 24 hours and then need to revert to the wholesome vegetarian detox plan again. Don’t worry if this happens. Its still an awesome detox weekend! Go in again next weekend and you may find that you can last longer! The more your body is seasoned to detoxing, the easier it is to stay on a juice cleanse longer! You will know.. follow your intuition and your body!

Digestive tract health is the first path to wellness. Juices are so easily absorbed and even those who are suffering from a chronic illness can readily benefit from the nutrients and enhance their Wellness Zone. Juice cleansing is an excellent regular detoxifier and the next level of cleansing after the pure water fast. You are getting nutrition and able to flush toxins at the same time in the simplest and least invasive manner for your body.
With a juice cleanse, it takes up to three days to get the same cleansing benefits as you would on the ‘pure water fast’ for one day. So it is slower. But it’s also more revitalising on some levels as far as being able to maintain your daily lifestyle. You have a constant stream of energy on a juice cleanse, as you are feeding your body nutrients the whole time.

 


Try to get as much cellular recovery as possible while you are on a juice cleanse. Really visualise those cells pumping through the juices and imagine your lymphatic system flushing away all the built-up debris of the past. You can’t really get these results when any food is included in the diet, only with juices or water. As soon as you eat food, your body is working again, so the energy is kind-of reversed and you are absorbing more instead of eliminating. Make your policy for toxins “better out than in”, so get them out!

A juice cleanse is really good when you are able to avoid the world for a whole weekend, it is the perfect weekend health kick. You can start on Friday night when you come in from the week and go all the way to Monday morning drinking up to 13 juices a day. Drink one juice for each hour you are awake. The only guideline with the juice cleanse is not to mix fruits  and vegetables.  This is following traditional Chinese medicine guidelines for optimal digestion and assimilation of nutrients. In the morning you may prefer fruit, and then change to vegetables in the afternoon for variety.  If you want low sugar then stick with vegetables and eliminate the fruits all together. The only exception to this rule is lemon and lime!

Juice cleansing days need to be treated as special days as sometimes it’s hard to get through the afternoon. A seasoned cleanser will have developed tricks to survive the afternoon hours and avoid breaking the cleanse at dinnertime, try and see what works best for you. Have fruit, juiced in any combination that takes your fancy each morning, then vegetables in the afternoon and early evening. Drink delicious herbal teas between juices and stay away from places where

Use organic fruit and vegetables when available. If you are unable to get organic produce, just soak the fruit or veggies in a sink filled with water and 15ml of apple cider vinegar for five minutes before juicing. Peel the skin off all fruit and vegetables cut off the unsightly bits and always use the freshest produce available to you at the time. Don’t use seconds or rotting food for juicing. Buy or grow the best you can get and always use it as fresh as you can.

Juice cleansing is great to cleanse our bodies! However when all the emotions come up and we feel really crappy its great to add herbs to the cleanse. I think that nervines and herbs that really assist the emotional body are hypericum ( st johns wort), avena sativa (oats) Matricaria ( chamomile) , passiflora ( passionflower) and also make juices that are high in vitamin B to help support your nervous system.

This information is from my ebook THE WELLNESS ZONE. There is a lot more info in there on detoxing. Also in my book THE MAGIC OF FOOD AS MEDICINE we tell you about 200 fruits, vegetables and herbs and why they are medicine! Please use my books as a reference guide during your juice cleanse and good luck!

Radiance Retreat Feb 2015

Herbal Body wraps from medicineroom are just delish, healing and available at Sacred Earths Retreat October 16th till 20th NSW Australia. Perfect Spring detox treat! 

Thanks for the texts and emails about the last blogs, I’m always happy to answer your questions and help you as much as possible. The written blog is different to the video blog. I have made it so they work together. Please watch the video and read this info. Please like us on facebook, instagram and subscribe to our newsletters and you tube channel.

Its still really dry and hot here in south east Queensland any many of our patients have been coming down with the flu and feeling very allergic to wind, seeds, dust, pollen and dry conditions. Last week I mentioned the Upper respiratory and sinus herbs to decongest and help reduce allergenic responses. We have that here if you need some. Please talk with us! Remember to keep up the fluids. A really good rule to remember is that every time you have a wee(urinate) then drink 200ml to 400ml of water or herbal teas.

There are so many ways to detox and over the spring season I will be talking about juice cleansing, water fasts and foods that are really helpful. This week its all about cholesterol and fatty acid decongestion from the body. Keep up with stripping the body of mucous too, we talked about that last week and its not a quick process. It can take months! Just be slow and steady and gentle on your body! remember to drink lemon juice, carrot juice and lots of greens! Yes all the good greens. I’m not going to tell you every step of detoxing in my blogs, My book THE WELLNESS ZONE does that and my book THE MAGIC OF FOOD AS MEDICINE goes into why fruits, vegetables and herbs are so good! My blogs and this info is more specific and I want to give you practical how to information so that you can spend this spring getting healthier.

Spring detox season is really 1/3 complete now and so we are really getting into the deeper poisons, toxins and fatty acids that are in our body. Our liver is such a great filter organ and to decongest from these toxins and accumulations is what its all about at this time of the year.

Your liver is your seat of emotion! So when you detox often its easy to become frustrated, agitated, angry, upset, resentful and downright bad tempered when you are in detox mode and your body is releasing what no longer serves it! Better in than out! Even when we think we have a really good diet and clean living , there is always some accumulations and they are often deep seated. The liver is energetically the home to all emotions and so when we release the poisons, they come out in more ways than one!

Detox and be happy! smile! joy! love!

 Helping you feel good is a great plan from our herbal dispensary… This is where we add the herbs hypericum, ( St Johns wort) to your herbal formula for detox time. Along with your liver cleansing detox formula you are able to balance your emotions at the same time and release more harmlessly some of that pent up liver yang, heated and red anger! Hypericum is an antidepressant and nervous system supporting herbal. We have lots of other herbs to help you feel relaxed and good to, so please ask!

This week in my you tube clip I talk about how to strip fatty acids and cholesterol out of the body and why its good to take healthy oils. Please make time to watch this clip and if you want the whole low down on cholesterol and how it works? what it does? and how to manage this then get the 100% by donation download of THE WELLNESS ZONE from my web site. You can have it for free, thats my pleasure!

The best herbs that I like for managing cholesterol and looking after your liver in this management are turmeric, ginger, globe artichoke and garlic. We’ve been making this formula for many years and those who take it as a natural cholesterol management tonic get great results with reduced low density lipoprotein ( LDL) levels and when you change your diet to a detox wholesome vegetable based diet for the cleansing/wood/spring season then you will notice that the good cholesterol/ healthy readings go up High density lipoproteins(HDL) and the LDL levels drop.

We can strip cholesterol from our liver and we can decongest the liver from heavy metals, poisons, toxins and hormones. This is really one of the most important factors in detox therapies in my mind. One of the herbal blends we make here contains kelp, schisandra and fennel. Its our springtime metabolism , weight balance boosting blend and the herbs are so good for you. Schisandra is known in Chinese traditional medicine as the herb of youth! It also is very bitter which is great for the liver and gall bladder, plus helps balance hormones. The kelp is a heavy metal chelator and encases poisons nicely and carries them through your blood into your urine harmlessly,so you are eliminating poisons in a safer way!   The fennel is so deodorising and parasite cleansing, plus its great for digestion and liver function. This blend is available from us and you need to take it through the spring season. Talk to us!

How do you suffer? Lets get deeper into our spring cleansing season with great hints and tips.

Hello and how are you this week?

This blog covers more detox therapies that you can do at home plus great tips on how to continue your spring cleansing season and set your body up for wellness and joy! 

This is the third week of September and we have been focusing on detoxing in a really gentle way till now. I have been thinking about suffering and how i suffer! and also how I contribute to suffering in others and to the planet. When we detox our bodies we also have many things coming up in our emotional body and our mental body! Emotional suffering and mental suffering all play a part in the detox process and this week its been on my mind. I made a decision a long time ago not to allow any suffering to enter my body, this changed the way I ate and as much as possible I have stuck with this. However now I want to go deeper into the self sabotage and suffering that I feel and create for myself through lifestyle decisions that may be made in ignorance or in a moment when I want to escape into illusion and unreality.

As part of the detox this week lets look at how we contribute to suffering? suffering in ourselves and in others, whether intentional or not! and lets think about how we can change this around and take that suffering and let it go, forgive ourselves and stop it as much as possible. Stop our personal contribution to this suffering and make the best effort we can to eliminate the residues of this from our bodies and lives!

There are loads of ways to do this, and just being aware that we are part of the problem is helpful and in my life I love to know where my food comes from as much as possible and I like to know that no one suffered in the process. There are so many ways we suffer and there are many ways we can change this and remove ourselves from contributing in the future to suffering!

Seasonal fruits are perfect to help you detox. They are local, cheap and fresh! Perfect foods for everyone!

I trust you will enjoy our video that accompanies this blog, please sign up to our you tube channel for latest info and also share this work with your family and friends who may appreciate our information in this blog.

Its so dry here now! Springtime and no rain for the seeds to sprout and make beautiful new plants! Today our video comes from the Maple Street Co op community garden in Maleny QLD. We just love the way our community comes together and today we met DJ who is working on the garden making it beautiful in these dry times. The Maple street co op have come on board for our event HIGH VIBES ON THE MOUNTAIN in January as the Main Stage Sponsors. We are so excited that they are taking this role. The co op is organic, community based and really ethical in operations. A great model for any community to follow.

Due to the dryness in the air we talk today in our blog about allergens that you may ingest either through the air or in foods and how your body makes mucous and what it does. Mucous is in our line of defence to protect us from poisons entering the body, so it really works to keep us healthy and to prevent the transport of many allergens into the body. Mucous can however have negative effects on the head cavity in the form of sinus infections and hayfever at this time of the year. It can also effect our digestion and clog up our lymphatic system.

Using Fenugreek tea as a healing tea is really delicious and effective. The herbal extractions of fenugreek mixed with olive leaf for antimicrobial cleansing, elderberries and lemon myrtle are really powerful mucous decongestants and helps strip mucous from our body fast.

We want to strip mucous from our system as quickly as possible otherwise it tends to form really dark straps of toxins that house themselves in the digestive tract or in the large intestine specifically and stay there for many years. There are loads of toxic consequences to this and its a good idea to add a mucous cleaning regime to your spring time detox simply because it can help eliminate pouches of poisons and also open up the flow in your digestive tract.

Mucous also attaches itself nicely to bulky left over and undigested foods in the small and large intestines, so we can end up with added accumulations of poisons and yuckiness, just sitting there and collecting. Most people have between three and ten kilos of  this accumulated mucous, carbohydrate, putrid and parasite ridden gunk in the body and it can play havoc with digestion, assimilation and quality of nutrients in your body.

This week it would be great if you continued to take the herbs mentioned last week in my blog and video, plus added the mucous cleansing foods so that we can start moving the poisons from the digestive tract and taking them through the body and excreting them.

Spring detox starts now for liver and gallbladder wellness!

Welcome to our blog this week.

Its really exciting that we are taking this journey of spring time detox therapies together. Did you start taking vitamin C in the last few weeks? Citrus fruits, fresh juices, fruit salads are all great ways to add vitamin C to your diet.

Sign up for my blog at our web site, subscribe to my youtube channel and join us on Instagram and facebook for social media updates.

 

Now we are going to start with green foods, fresh salad shoots and small weeds plus enjoying the benefits of starting to cleanse our liver, gall bladder and digestive tract.

 

Our digestive tract is a long hollow tube that runs from our moth to our anus. Its designed to be filled at meals and then emptied completely so that it sits as a hollow organ waiting for the next meal. The processes that food undergoes when it enters our digestive tract is awesome. Starting as delicious meals that are full of flavour and nutrients and then being broken down by the chemical reactions in our stomach and small intestine, only to have the nutrients extracted and assimilated into our body and then the waste to travel down to the large intestine where it is filtered and excreted through faeces.

 

We are really miraculous in our working body and its something to be highly respected.

 

In this early stage of spring, we are now only entering the true wooden element where we cut away the old wood and dead branches and plant the seeds of growth and goodness in our bodies.

 

This is done through some simple strategies that can be done to the best of your ability and done daily. To be successful in any detox cleansing plan we need to focus on each day and do our best daily.

This week we are starting to detox the liver and gallbladder with wholesome vegetables and fruits. Try to get your diet as close to being plant based as possible this week. Just start, go slowly as we have all spring to do our detox and if we are slow and steady in the process then we will achieve results that keep us healthier and clearer in our mind, body and spirit!

 

This week the plan is to get some good herbal teas in your kitchen and drink them as replacements to other beverages in the house. Keep the herb teas delicious. We like peppermint because its so deodorising and calming on the whole body, it smells and tastes delicious! We also like chamomile in the evenings because it is antimicrobial, calming and helps you sleep better!

 

Herbal medicines to introduce this week are milk thistle as a protective herbal for the liver allowing the liver cells to stay string and do their job effectively while you are detoxing. We also want you to start on some globe artichoke for the gall bladder this week and this helps remove the debris that builds up in the gall bladder to cause small stones from cholesterol and hormonal deposits. We also recommend you take some dandelion root and leaves as this is not only bitter and aids digestion, but it also helps cleanse the blood and remove excess liver toxins as they enter the blood stream. Add to that a little black walnut hull extract to help start detoxing the large intestine from parasites and debris and we have a pretty good start to detox season.

Connect with us if you would like to try our herbal detox blend. We offer 10% off for anyone who comes and sees us at Eumundi Markets for this product at the moment. So call us or call in and we will look after you with our organic herbal medicines.

 

Heres a juice recipe for you!

Green clean and delicious.

I called into Kunara foods today, and they stock our wonderful herbal skin balms,

So I stopped at the café and got this juice which I think is pretty perfect for a spring time detox juice. They call this one green goddess.

Juice together kale, parsley, spinach and lemon juice with fresh green apples.

 

 

Everyone knows how much I love green apples as they are so healthy for your gall bladder and they are associated with blood sugar regulation. They improve healthy gut bacteria they old saying an apple a day keeps the doctor away is true with all that fibre, assisting also in digestive function, and they are also a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory food especially for the digestion.

Welcome to spring strategies for detox therapies.

 

Hello and how are you? 

Welcome to our first blog this spring season.

I really love this time of the year as we are able to take time to look at what we choose to bring into the season and shat we choose to leave behind! So set your intentions and work out a practical way to make it all happen!

Make a list of what you want to leave behind and what you want to bring with you into the spring. Its the time when we plant the seeds of ideas and the seeds of change. Make the most of this time for your body, mind and spirit!

Springtime  we come into  the wood element which is represented by the colour green  in  Chinese  medicine culture.  However in my work we will be incorporating many cultures and traditional approaches including Indian, Ayurvedic, French, European, Arabic and Eastern medicines as well as our local Australian and Southern hemisphere approaches to health and wellness.  Everywhere there are commonalities and  the planting of seeds for what we want to  achieve in our lives and the release of what no longer serves us by detoxing and cleansing our bodies is global.  This season has many aspects and we will be going into detail  with our weekly blogs.  We invite you to join us on this gentle journey to cleansing and also setting up wellness for the year to come.

 

The organs we focus on in the spring are our liver and gallbladder for the wood element. However we  are expansive in our approach by incorporating our own environments as the primary focus for our spring wellness. Making sure that our whole body is nourished with seeds of wellness and planting healthy visualisations and plans into our lives.

I look forward to sharing the journey with you. Please feel free to connect with me if you want more information on any of my videos and blogs. Enjoy this one, its the start of our spring freshness.

Lets enter the season gently.

To begin the spring this week lets focus on looking at what we choose to bring into spring with us and what we choose to leave behind. Its as simple as making a list of what you want to achieve and how you want to go about this process.

This season we want to start with Vitamin C. Take vitamin C through the spring season. Lemons, mandarins, oranges and citrus fruits. This helps sweep poisons form the liver and also is a great antioxidant and works on the whole body.  Vitamin C is really good to help build new cellsIts repairing for the adrenal glands and helps us cope with stress better. Vitamin C is a great start to the process and will release poisons and toxins from your liver into the blood stream and gently begin to flush them out so that later in the season when we are really working on deep cellular cleansing we have a clean and clear filter organ ( our liver) to process the deep cleansing gently and effectively.

Eat fresh citrus fruits which are high in Vitamin C. Mix them with seasonal fresh greens for delicious fresh spring cleansing meals! 

The gall bladder is important and when watch the you tube clip we made this week you will see how it works and why its important to keep this beautiful little sac healthy and happy.

Take antioxidants such as berries and these help cleanse your blood and also are a great way to start the spring detox process. This is because we want strong clear blood to filter out the poisons and congestion in our body as the season goes on and its a great start to the cleansing process. Also vision and eyes are something that tend to be weak in the springtime and berries are super antioxidants that really help strengthen the vision. We will go into many wellness tips and spring time strategies as the season goes on and as we start to liven up our physical bodies and get fit and healthy again with exercise plans and programs.

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?
