BEWARE OF THE BULLY – WATCH OUT FOR THE ENEMY WITHIN

BEWARE OF THE BULLY – WATCH OUT FOR THE ENEMY WITHIN

Reading Time: 5 minutes

 

How many times recently have you heard the words ‘don’t beat yourself up’ or ‘don’t put yourself down’.  I can bet it has been said to you a number of times in recent years.  I know I am guilty of doing both, and it is now time to stand up to the ‘inner bully’ and show it who is boss.

It is hardly surprising as we are constantly ‘bullied’ by the media, ordering us to look more attractive, younger, thinner, smarter – unrealistic goals when juggling any sort of descent lifestyle.

As a woman of a certain age, I now feel compelled to fight back at this tough tyrant within, and have begun to congratulate myself on bringing up a family – no easy feat, being a great friend and partner, my own skills and talents, and doing a list of my assets.  I don’t mean in monetary terms, but my own attributes, and if you search you will find there are many that you can write down about yourself.

If you have this list by your bed, or in a prominent place where you can read it daily, I guarantee the negative feelings relating to yourself will begin to disappear.

Since I instigated this exercise into my own regime, as advised by a renowned life coach, ‘miracles’ started to happen, I was advised that they would.  I was sceptical at first, but seeing a close friend successfully turn her life around, I was urged to try it, after all what did I have to lose.

So this, along with daily meditation, my life began to turn around for the good.  I can’t explain how things began to improve, but can certainly pinpoint when, and that was the moment I stood up to the inner ‘bully’ and resolved to overturn the negative feelings I had for myself and stop setting myself unrealistic goals.

Small things started to happen at first, like a Yoga class appearing, practically on my doorstep and a part time job opportunity mysteriously coming up that would not eat too much into my time.  I have even been given affordable beauty products and treatments at the local spa, and a multitude of benefits I hadn’t previously been made aware of.

Perhaps it is the Universe rewarding me for taking action against the ‘bully’, or maybe I am now freed up to notice my own good fortune, but I recommend taking charge, as it can only be for the greater good, and certainly in these circumstances, it will be for your own inner strength and future.

So, the rule of thumb is that bullies are actually cowards, and if confronted will always back off.  So if you have done any sort of meditation, now is the time to have a serious talk with your inner ‘bully’ and tell them their voice is no longer effective in your World.

When the pressure is off you can then decide what is best for you, and you will be surprised at how liberating it will be to make your own decisions, based upon what you really need to make you happy.

YOUR FUTURE HEALTH IS IN THE HANDS OF FOUR THIEVES

YOUR FUTURE HEALTH IS IN THE HANDS OF FOUR THIEVES

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

It is a great time of year to meet up with old friends and family, going to School Nativity plays, Church choirs and Christmas Shopping, but the down side is, it can be pretty exhausting too, and this is the time when our immune system can be low and we are prone to picking up bugs.

I attended a brilliant concert put on by the Nottinghill Community Choir last weekend and had VIP status having known the Pastor from a ‘past life’ when he was still a performer, but not in a religious sense, and I found myself sitting next to one of the top voice coaches in London.

With our compatible interests, and before the singing began, he and I struck up a conversation, and as we spoke he tipped an aromatherapy oil on his hands, explaining that he carried a potion called Four Thieves around with him at all times, to ward off the inevitable viruses that were in abundance at this time of the year.  He also went on to tell me that the source of this incredible remedy stemmed from as far back as the Bubonic Plague in France in the 17th century, when four thieves who lived underground, robbing graves and bodies of the afflicted, were completely immune to the disease through their discovery of this unique elixir.

On further investigation when I returned home, I discovered that these essential oils are a combination of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, eucalyptus and rosemary, which smell divine as well as being an incredible preventative potion against ill health.

Fascinated by his story of its source I also investigated that this story, recorded in French folklore, goes on to say that these four reprobates were captured and put on trial and the inevitable sentence of the time, Death by Hanging was bestowed upon them.

 

However, using their wits, they promised to reveal their source of immunity to the plague and were subsequently pardoned.  The rest is history, and the remedy remains in their name, although 20th century French herbalist Jean Vardet has since perfected it in his wisdom.

 

I am astounded that the Four Thieves remedy is not a household name and so have done some more digging and discovered that they are incredibly expensive on most health websites, but a major find is they can be purchased at a reasonable price from Anglesea Organics Ebay Store online.

As you can imagine, I could not wait to share the news with you all, and have already put in my order for myself and the whole family.

As some of you may know, I have a daughter and son-in-law and three young grandchildren, who will all benefit from this amazing remedy, especially before Christmas when taking part in so many activities and being exposed to the elements and as many of us are.

I believe in it, and at only a few pounds, it would be great for all of us to try it and see.  If it works as my new ‘friend’ insists, he will definitely be on my Christmas card list now and for many years to come.

 

 

OUT WITH THE OLD – IN WITH THE ANCIENT

OUT WITH THE OLD – IN WITH THE ANCIENT

Ancient grains have made a big comeback this year, and as big as Quinoa was when it came back into popularity in 2013, so are ingredients like hemp, chia and buckwheat.

As with all diets, they are really a rehash of the old or the ancient ones, and we have the ultimate solution to your endless yo yo effect, in that getting your digestive system up to speed (literally), the rest will take care of itself.

There are compatible foods where you combine protein with neutral foods or the neutral with starch meals, but otherwise, never the ‘grain’ will meet.

So, to get started, consider fish and chicken as your protein options and vegetables such as asparagus, green beans, carrots, celery, peas and spinach as your neutral.

Then if you would prefer a starch option, then add oats, buckwheat and quinoa.

But this is just the beginning as you cannot live on these foods alone, and there are more options like using molasses instead of sugar, and olive or cold pressed seed oils and the fruits and pulses that are compatible and essential to make this diet work.

If you are enjoying this concept, then take it a step further and invest in one of the related books where they will elaborate on this and add recipes and explanations of how important it is to get the gut functioning, and make sure you don’t keep going back to the fad diets that are only temporary.

We have sung the praises of Gudrun Jonsson before, but never tire of her advice and recipes, and see her as the original ‘gut’ doctor.  Gudrun is a biopath who has been studying the reaction of the gut for more than three decades, and so her recipes have been tried and tested, and her books and ideas are constantly being updated but don’t go out of fashion.

DELUXE CLINIC – WHERE BEAUTY REALLY IS SKIN DEEP

DELUXE CLINIC – WHERE BEAUTY REALLY IS SKIN DEEP

Reading Time: 6 minutes

 

Many years ago when I was attending a spiritual healing retreat, a guru told me that if I had ‘plastic surgery’ the Goddess would not be happy.I have always remembered those words, and have watched carefully as more and more people have gone under the knife to look good. I have to admit that I have also considered this myself in spite of the warning as the years have progressed, but am fortunate to have inherited a very good skin and bone structure, but nonetheless felt it was time for a bit of enhancement.

I had also been contemplating a few areas of improvement, and so a few months ago began to investigate less invasive ways of doing so.  So I started checking out my options and stumbled on the Deluxe Clinic. The Deluxe Clinic resides in the affluent area of Gerrards Cross in Buckinghamshire, often referred to as the ‘Hollywood of England’, mainly due to its celebrity inhabitants and easy proximity to Pinewood Studios.

My family moved to Gerrards Cross as their their film career was taking off in the seventies, and they had moved their ‘empire’ to Pinewood.  So I am familiar with the fabulous energy of the village and the well-known faces, even though it has undergone changes over the years. So it was a delight to discover the Clinic with its expertise in Hifu which is a brilliant non-invasive laser face lift.  Not only is it administered by well trained staff, but the clinic works with trained nurses and even the NHS with many of its techniques.

The tariffs of this revolutionary cosmetic surgery are also extremely competitive and are well below the prices of most London salons.I decided to check it out, and was warmly greeted by the owner, Simona Goci, who took the time and trouble to introduce me to the other members of her staff and spend time explaining the various treatments.The premises themselves are pristine and the treatment rooms tranquil and geared for the greater good of the client.

In spite of my reservations, Simona was completely reassuring but honest, and told me in great detail the areas of my face that she would recommend could be improved.  She also gave me a number of options, but not once did I feel she was ‘selling’ to me.

After a lot of questions and considerations, I signed up to try the Hifu facelift.   HIFU Face and Neck Lift (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) also known as Non-surgical Facelift has become one of the most sought after lifting treatments for face and neck. 3D SkinMed is a one-off treatment which will help you achieve tighter, firmer, lifted skin! It all sounds so easy, but believe me it was a major decision, especially for someone like me who had been warned not to interfere with nature’s bigger plan.

The procedure takes a couple of hours, and is virtually pain free.   Simona herself is in charge of the Hifu and is an expert.  She explains what she is doing at every stage, and I felt nurtured and in good hands.The effects take three months to reach their optimum level, as the skin has to readjust and tighten gradually over time.  I was told I may not see an immediate difference but I did and friends and colleagues have remarked on how well and young I look, even after a few weeks.

I would certainly recommend anyone who has been considering having ‘work’ done to check out the Deluxe Clinic as their methods won’t make such a dent on your skin or your bank account. I would also recommend that wherever you live, this is a great place to check out, and is well worth the journey, even to make a special trip.

If unlike me you want to keep the treatment a secret, their staff are discreet and confidential.  I am quite happy to recommend this to others who are in need but don’t want to go the invasive route, as it really does give a boost to both your skin and your confidence. I have also consulted my oracle, and feel that in spite of the advice of the guru, the Goddess is pleased with my decision, as it enhances her work in the first place, rather than reinventing it.

If you would like a free consultation call Deluxe Clinic on 01753 885777.
