6 Tips for eating more consciously ……and helping the planet

We are more aware than ever of how we, as humans, are negatively impacting the planet.

Befriend The Inner Critic

We all have inner critics. They get in the way of our aspirations and potential. They evaluate and comment upon everything we do, every choice we make. They judge our behaviours, our thoughts and feelings. They even judge us a person entirely. Basically, the inner critic talks you out of things that could have been brilliant.

How to treat your C-Section Scar with Physiotherapy

As common as a C-section delivery is, women lack information on the subject and particularly on what to do after they had one.

A C-section, as any surgical intervention requiring incision, will begin its healing process with the formation of a scar. As it doesn’t have the same quality or elasticity as the original tissue, a scar tissue might bring various complications if not treated.

This is why post physiotherapy rehabilitation is necessary, in order to stop symptoms resulting from C-section scars and prevent from further complications. Read more

Good health begins as a thought. The mind-body connection

Achieving long-term health is a balancing act where body and mind are interconnected and inseparable.

Arnica Had our Back! How arnica supported a tough journey.

The last 2 years for our family has been surprisingly tough, but there has been an ally that needs recognition of her strength, support and healing properties; Arnica.

Dainty in its natural being, this flower has meant the difference between a day at school or not, the ability to walk somewhere rather than catch a lift, a releaser of tension from carrying school bags not to mention Arnica’s ability to speed up recovery after surgery.

This flower may look fragile, but it’s all a disguise. Arnica is the toughest flower in the patch. Read more

Five things i recommend if you are trying to get pregnant

Trying to get pregnant can be an emotional roller coaster. I have seen so many women coming to my practice, desperately wanting to get pregnant, wanting to be “fixed” because “something was wrong with them”.

During the consultation, we discuss at length what is going on with their body: their ovarian reserve, the quality of their eggs, the regularity of their period, whether they suffer from endometriosis or fibroids, what’s their lifestyle like.

But there is one subject I am particularly interested in, one subject they rarely talked about with their doctors and yet, i find very important : what is going on in their mind? What is their belief system? Is there a reason they are not getting pregnant other than an issue with their physical or hormonal body?. Read more
