Be the BOSS of your own life : How to increase self Belief

Having worked with hundreds of clients over the last few years I have discovered that one the most important things I can help my clients with is self belief, this is because once you believe in yourself, believe you deserve the best for your life then you will do whatever it takes to create Health and Happiness and will always look for solutions rather than problems in any situation.

My most successful clients never focus on what they are giving up, they focus on what they will gain at the end of their programme of working with me whether that is 21 Days, 6 weeks, 3 or 12 months.

Today I just wanted to share my top 5 tips on taking control, being the BOSS of your own life and boosting your Self Belief / Confidence.

  1. Deep breathing : practice deep breathing until it becomes a habit.  Breathe in for a count of five, breathe out for a count of 7, repeat 5 times.  Anytime you feel your self belief/confidence slipping stop and breath, this will calm and centre you and allow you to things into perspective.  Often when our thoughts start to spiral, they very quickly get out of control and a thought that starts as “I can’t do this” very quickly becomes “I’m useless I can’t do anything, why even bother to try” BUT if you can catch this at “ I can’t do this” take some deep breaths and put it into perspective you will feel better about yourself and subsequently whatever you are trying to achieve and will keep trying until you can.   Remember no one is an expert the first time they do anything – it takes hours of practice. 
  2. Acknowledge your emotions : a lot of my clients think they have to be positive all the time and that they can’t feel sad, angry or upset.  I think this is a misunderstanding of a lot of the positivity messages and can cause confusion.  We are humans and as humans we have a whole range of emotions so rather than ignoring and burying them, acknowledge them.  It is then a lot easier to let them go, to reframe and get back to a place of feeling positive and happy.  For example : you could say I’m upset / resentful / angry that I have to change my diet because I love …….. (whatever it is) BUT I acknowledge this and understand that by changing it, it will improve your energy levels and health in the long term.
  3. List your goals and ambitions : why are you doing what you are doing.  When times get tough you can focus on your goals and remind yourself why you are doing what you are doing.  Would you go to the airport to go on holiday without picking a destination and booking a flight first – probably not.  It’s a lot easier to get where you are going – IF you know WHERE you are going and WHY.
  4. Laugh out loud : if you find you are dwelling on the past, either a mistake you made, something that didn’t work out the way you expected and you keep beating yourself up over this, it will continuously lower your Self belief/confidence.  Find funny videos to watch on YouTube this will distract you and laughing will instantly change your mood.  You cannot smile and be grumpy at the same time – go ahead and try it now, you see it’s physically impossible to stay sad, mad or grumpy and smile at the same time.
  5. Gratitude : last but not least this is one of my favourite techniques.  Be grateful that you are in control, you are the boss of you and you have choices.  You have the choice in every moment in every situation : you can choose how you react.  Be grateful for what you do have, rather than focusing on what you don’t have.  Be grateful you can change your life IF YOU choose to.  Every single day write down 3-5 things you are grateful for.  Try this for 30 days and I promise you, your life will change.  The more you are grateful for, the more you will have to be grateful for and your Self belief/ Confidence will grow exponentially.

I really hope you try some of these techniques or all of them if you can.  They work, they have worked for me, they work for my clients and they will work for you.  The only reason why they won’t work is if you don’t do them and/or don’t do them consistently, taking a half hearted approach is not going to work.  Commit to it – what have you got to lose?  If you need help and support then join me in my FREE 5 Day Be the BOSS of Your Life programme : click here

I’d love to hear from you, which techniques you tried and how they worked for you.  If you’d like to share please do get in touch I love to hear from you and if you need help, would like to improve your health, be happier and more confident then please get in touch to find out how we can help you at Kerry’s Natural Health Solutions along with our FREE 5 Day Be the BOSS of Your Life programme : which you can find here  we do have a number of other programmes that may be a fit for you

Client Testimonial : I am half way through Kerry’s 21 Day Purify programme, it’s hard to explain but I feel happier,  my moods have improved and my cravings have gone, I am definitely healthier as my blood sugar readings have come down from 6.8 to just over 4 and I have lost weight, I feel more confident and the best part is that I have found it soo easy!  I will be telling everyone – thank you!  DJ, Kent

Modern Technology : Why it should have a warning

Most of our modern-day conveniences emit EMFs : laptops, mobile phones, tablets, Wi-Fi routers, baby monitors, cordless telephones.  Some emit stronger EMFs than others.

EMFs (Electromagnetic fields) may sound like mumbo-jumbo, but they are VERY real and very real threat to our health.

In fact EMFs can cause symptoms of illness in infants, children and adults, particularly those who already have issues with low immunity and/or suffer from autoimmune conditions.

Symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety, Depression
  • Brain fog : foggy thinking
  • Dizziness and vertigo
  • Frequent illnesses
  • HPA axis dysfunction (also known as adrenal fatigue)
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Adds to stress and the effects of stress
  • Skin symptoms : facial prickling, burning sensations and rashes
  • aches and pains in your muscles
  • A variety of less common symptoms, like ear, nose, and throat symptoms and digestive disorders
  • Infertility
  • Learning difficulties
  • Cancer or increased in cancer risk

What Are Electromagnetic Fields?

Electromagnetic fields are areas of energy, our body contains an electromagnetic field and electronic devices are surrounded by fields of energy, when we are exposed to external man-made EMFs these interfere with the electromagnetic systems inside of our bodies.  Particularly the brain, the heart, mitochondria can be very susceptible to EMF interference and because our own biology can get disrupted, EMF exposure can worsen inflammatory problems. Our own electromagnetic signals are very weak compared to the man-made EMFs.

The World Health Organization (WHO) explains that the electric fields are created by differences in voltage and magnetic fields are created when the electric current flows.3
According to WHO, electromagnetic fields affect us because our human bodies have their own electric and biochemical responses (e.g., nervous system, digestion, brain function, heart function).

Where Do EMFs Come From?

In very simple terms EMFs come from electricity:

In your home – computers, tablets, mobile phones, DECT cordless phones, hairdryers, vacuums, refrigerators, microwave ovens, irons, televisions, dimmer switches, electric blankets, electric razors, electric toothbrushes, Wi-Fi, baby monitors etc.

In your office – computers, tablets, mobile phones, Wi-Fi, fluorescent or halogen lighting, photocopiers and scanners.

Outside – power lines, cell phone towers, cities that provide citywide wireless Internet (WiFi) and electromagnetic radiation from near neighbours’ electronic equipment.

Travelling on airplanes

 Don’ t worry you don’t have to go off grid!  Although a digital detox every now and again will do you the world of good.  The biggest offenders are wireless internet (Wi-Fi), cordless phones and baby monitors

There are a number of steps you can take to minimize and/or limit the effect of EMFs.

  • Keep appliances and devices off, or on airplane mode as much as possible
  • Keep electronic devices, i.e. mobile phones, tablets, and computers away from your body. Use head phones to make calls rather than placing the phones near your ear to speak
  • Rather than using Wi-Fi, hard wire your internet connections
  • If Wi-Fi is your only option, then turn off your Wi-Fi router at night
  • Hard wire computer peripherals rather than using wireless or bluetooth connections
  • Ensure that your electrical wiring is done properly
  • Sleep away from circuit breakers or large appliances that run overnight, including if the appliance is on the other side of the wall
  • Grounding allows your body to neutralize positive ions from electronic devices and re-synchronize with the Schumann resonance.
  • Eating a nutritious diet high in antioxidants can help mitigate some oxidative stress from EMF exposure.
  • Use BioZen for protection from EMFsA SMALL CHIP A BIG DIFFERENCE : BioZen protects you against mobile radiation and is scientifically and medically proven

Is your Skin Your Biggest Enemy?

Do you have shelves of personal care products and find that you can be sensitive or allergic to something one year and then not the next year?  One of the strategies that works for my clients when it comes to skin issues is to pay attention to what they are eating, this is because the one thing that the gut and skin have in common is the immune system.

When we take care of our gut, we take care of about 70% of our immune system and in my experience working with clients over the years many skin issues begin to resolve, in most cases once you get your gut back on track and keep it healthy, you are more likely to have radiant skin!

More and more studies are coming out demonstrating a strong link between skin disorders and gut health.  Both the gut and the skin have roles as defenders against pathogens invading from the outside environment.  They also both have nerves that send and receive signals from the brain with the ability to send messages to other parts of the body.

Like the gut, the skin also has its own microbiome that is just as important to health as that of the gut microbiome. Our microbiome is a fascinating inner-ecosystem within each of us, for more information watch this short video:  https://youtu.be/G38O7gmqzVI.

The microbiota provides protection; it acts as a barrier against potential issues. It is essential to have a good balance between the helpful and harmful bacteria, an imbalance has the potential to contribute to skin disorders and diseases, just as in the gut.

“All Disease Begins in the Gut” – “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” — Hippocrates, father of medicine, 431 B.C.

Whether you have a skin disorder like rosacea or eczema or simply want to maintain a youthful appearance, it is beneficial to look to your gut.  Gut problems might be the cause of your skin the issue, or it might simply be making it worse.

Foods to Eat for Radiant Skin  

Consuming the right foods, herbs, and nutrients is essential not only to support gut health but also to support your skin health.  Nutrient deficiencies often show up in the skin and can cause skin issues and disorders and of course, you need to have a healthy gut ready to absorb these healthy nutrients to benefit from this, which is why it is essential to start with improving your gut health.

Pollution, UV rays, and other environmental toxins create significant oxidative stress, which can lead to wrinkles, sagging skin, discoloration, and other signs of aging.  Eating adequate antioxidants to counter the oxidative stress is essential.

A healthy diet high in fruit and vegetables goes a long way to providing the nutrients necessary for radiant skin.  Nourish your skin from the inside out, avoid any foods that might be inflammatory to you and this will keep both the gut and the skin healthy so that they can continue to protect your body from the dangers of the outside world.

The New Life Experiment

The New Life Experiment is training ourselves to self-monitor everything we say or do and how we respond to others.  We don’t realize how much negativity we ourselves create in our lives or how to stop it.

We as co-creators of our lives have the power to control the negativity we put out into the world.  If you catch yourself thinking a negative thought or speaking a negative word you can cancel it.  You can choose to shift to a different reality by manifesting positive energy into your life.

Negativity consumes an incredible amount of energy.  By altering your thought patterns by choosing a positive thought and not voicing a negative word you are co-creating a more positive existence for yourself and those you encounter in life.

If we practiced this list on a daily basis your world would be a better place.

No complaining.

No whining.

No being overly critical.

No being overly judgmental.

No poking fun at others.

No being cynical or facetious (pessimistic or flippant)

No creating reasons to be sorry or to say you’re sorry out of habit.

No creating reasons to be stressed.

No creating reasons to be unhappy.

No affirming negative thoughts such as ‘I’m overweight.’

No affirming negative feelings such as ‘I’m depressed.’

No making reasons to be angry.

No making or seeking out reasons to overcome others, fight, struggle or enter into combat (more than necessary).

No making reasons to be anxious.

No making reasons to be overwhelmed.

No making reasons to worry.

No making reasons for self-doubt.

No creating situations of lack or scarcity with statements such as ‘I don’t have enough energy.’ Instead make the claim ‘I have plenty.’

No creating chaos or drama for entertainment, excitement, adventure, or thrills, or to avoid peace.

No ‘wrong’ or ‘right’, ‘better’ or ‘worse’, ‘should’, ‘hope’ or ‘try’.  (Avoid duality)

Vital Signs

Why You should be monitoring your vital signs 24/7 : The Vital Signs You Should Be Checking Regularly

What is a vital sign you may ask………and why should you care?  A vital sign is a specific measurement that should be routinely monitored and a once or twice a year visit to your GP just won’t cut it.

To live a healthy lifestyle it is critical to check your vitals and keep tabs on your health.

The good news is that monitoring these vital signs yourself is becoming easier and easier and I have to say more fun as you can track and measure – watch your progress, see the improvements to your health and share your statistics with others to help inspire and motivate them.

It is really important for me to be able to test my clients vital signs and now I can do this with more and more easy.  I can now test my clients Aortic Pulse Wave Velocity – this tests how stiff or flexible your arteries are and calculates your risk for heart disease before this could only be done in a hospital with equipment that cost 1000’s of pounds, but I have a very accurate hand held device, produced to the required medical and scientific standards that cost less than £200 and now which is even more exciting ….I have a device that my clients can own and wear and do their own monitoring 24/7.

If you would like more information on how you can monitor your vital signs 24/7 and take control of you health then email me : kerry_vlf@btinterent.com with the subject VITAL SIGNS  and I will send you a 2 minute video to explain more.

Don’t follow the trends, drive the change, improve your lifestyle!

I believe that sooner, rather than later we will be paying for our healthcare, we currently pay indirectly through our taxes etc but I believe this will become more of a direct cost where we pay up front for health services or have to take out private medical insurance to cover this so keeping track and improving out health is now more important than ever.

What should you be monitoring?

Your pulse rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate and body temperature are 4 vital signs that we recommend tracking on a regular basis, but I would also recommend tracking your steps, sleep quality and blood sugar levels.

  1. Pulse

Your pulse rate (heart rate) is the number of times that your heart beats in one minute.  A normal healthy pulse rate range is 60 to 100 beats per minute.  Factors such as medication, weight, temperature, emotions and body position will affect and manipulate your beats per minute.

Knowing your regular pulse rate can be critical in gauging your heart’s health.  If your pulse  rate is too high it can mean your medication dosage is off or can even be a predictor of a heart attack.  A slow pulse rate may lead to dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pains, and even passing out.

  1. Blood Pressure

High blood pressure can be extremely dangerous; the worst part is that often there are no symptoms.  You need to measure your blood pressure to detect signs of hypertension (high blood pressure) as this puts extra strain on your arteries and your heart, and if left undetected and resolved this will strain and weaken your arteries.  This makes them thick and inflexible and it is more likely they will become clogged so it is imperative to measure blood pressure consistently.

  1. Body Temperature 

Your body temperature indicates your body’s ability to generate and get rid of heat.  Our bodies are able regulate within a safe narrow temperature range regardless of outside temperatures.  Normal temperatures typically average around 98.6°F (37°C), this may vary by 0.5° – 1.0°F.

Monitoring and understanding what your average body temperature is vital, as typical ranges can vary among different people. Once again knowing your body is important because you will then understand what is abnormal for you.  The body’s way of fighting off an infection is through a fever, it raises your internal body temperature, but temperatures over a certain range can become dangerous.  When you are ill, it is important to have access to monitoring your fever in case a dangerous spike occurs, or so you know if your high temperature has been present for an abnormally long period of time.

  1. Breath Rate

Your breath or respiratory rate is the amount of breaths taken within one minute.  A regular respiration rate for adults is between 16 to 20 breaths per minute, if it is below 12 or over 25 breaths while resting this is considered abnormal.  Medical monitoring of this vital sign is neglected and most of time it is not even measured at your doctor’s visit.

Your respiratory system is what delivers oxygen for your body’s energy production, and is responsible for removing carbon dioxide.  Your breath rate can actually be a predictor of illnesses, as well as providing valuable information about your cardiac, neurological, and pulmonary conditions.

Stay ahead of your health, detecting breathing abnormalities can be indicators of an underlying health condition.

  1. Steps

10,000 steps/day seems to be a reasonable estimate of daily activity and can be traced to Japanese walking clubs 30+ years ago.  Studies are emerging documenting the health benefits of attaining similar levels.  Depending on your age, your job etc this may vary but there is no denying that people who set a goal or have a challenge will be more active.

I have found myself running up and down the stairs just to get those last few steps in to complete my daily goals, many of my colleagues and I have clients who are part of a group and share their progress, this motivates them to increase their daily steps, so as with everything else monitoring your steps helps to keep you motivated and keeping up your steps daily will contribute to your long term and overall health.

  1. Sleep quality

Sleep is essential for a healthy heart. People who don’t sleep enough are at higher risk for cardiovascular disease — regardless of age, weight, smoking and exercise habits.  A tired brain isn’t able to communicate effectively or efficiently and this can lead to imbalances and unhealthy habits.  Poor sleep is linked to a weakened immune system as well as mental health problems such as anxiety and depression

Sleep is as important to our health as eating, drinking and breathing. Our bodies repair and our brains consolidate our memories and process information whilst we sleep.

We all know whether we are asleep or not so you may question why you need to monitor your sleep but this is because we have different levels of sleep depending on our brain waves, so you can have light sleep or very deep restorative sleep and by monitoring what portion of the night you spend in a deep restorative sleep you can then take measures to improves your sleep hygiene : such as adjusting exposure to light, changing the temperature in your bedroom to changing your eating, drinking and exercise routines which can help you sleep better.

  1. Blood sugar levels

Blood sugar testing is an vital part if diabetes management but new research is coming out all the time identifying sugar as a major health risk not only for diabetes but for Alzheimer’s and dementia – “Eating sugar and refined carbs can cause pre-dementia and dementia”  Dr Mark Hyman.  Our diet and lifestyle impacts our health and a great way to monitor this is to monitor your blood glucose levels, it is one of the major factors that starts the brain damage cascade that leads to chronic illness.

Your vital signs are far more important than you might think.  Understanding and knowing what is normal for you will help you to detect early signs of underlying health issues.  You will be able to perceive what is considered healthy or unhealthy for YOU.  Regular monitoring of your pulse rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate and temperature gives you control of your health.  I encourage you to monitor these vitals and personally monitor your everyday health.

Before you start to panic about how you keep a check and track all of these Vital signs, I have good news!!  As I mentioned earlier I am very excited as I now have access to a brand new wearable technology that is a game changer in healthcare, it is brand new in the UK and allows you to continually measure and track these vital signs – give yourself a head start on detecting if anything is abnormal for you and if necessary seek help before experiencing any effects that may be detrimental to your health.

I love the statement that your fork is the most powerful tool to transform your health, but I am now adding this wearable technology to that statement : Don’t follow the trends, drive the change, improve your lifestyle – if you would like more information on how you can monitor your vital signs 24/7 and take control of you health then email me : kerry_vlf@btinterent.com with the subject VITAL SIGNS  and I will send you a 2 minute video to explain more.  All I am asking for is 2 minutes of your time!

Magnesium, Sleep and Sugar

Sleep is essential for a healthy heart. People who don’t sleep enough are at higher risk for cardiovascular disease — regardless of age, weight, smoking and exercise habits.  A tired brain isn’t able to communicate effectively or efficiently and this can lead to imbalances and unhealthy habits .

Magnesium is vital for the function of our GABA receptors, these are found across all areas of the brain and nervous system.  GABA is a calming neurotransmitter that the brains needs in order to switch off, you need GABA in order to sleep.  Without it we remain tense, our thoughts race and we lie in bed trying to count sheep in order to go to sleep without success.  Magnesium is the relaxation mineral and is crucial for sleep, at night we need magnesium to move into our cells for relaxation and great quality sleep

A sign of magnesium deficiency is if you have anything that is tight or stiff, irritable, you can’t relax or if you have cramps anywhere – this can be internally or externally.  Most people, in fact it is estimated that 96% of the population is deficient in magnesium, and are more likely to have elevated inflammation markers.  Inflammation is linked to all major health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers and low magnesium is a risk for osteoporosis and these can all affect our sleep as well as many other parts of our lives.  I always prefer to increase magnesium containing foods but in many cases people are so deficient that the only way to “catch up” is to supplement.

Magnesium helps muscles relax, which is why it is a miracle mineral for sleep, it also helps to keep blood pressure normal and our bones strong.  The list of conditions related to magnesium deficiency is staggering; there are over 3,500 medical references on magnesium deficiency.  Anything from headaches and migraines to chronic fatigue, diabetes and IBS can be linked to magnesium deficiency, and these illnesses will also in turn impact our quality of sleep

You might be magnesium deficient if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Muscle cramps or twitches
  • Irritability
  • Sensitivity to loud noises
  • Constipation
  • Headaches
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Osteoporosis
  • High blood pressure
  • PMS
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Irritable bowel syndrome

The reason we are so deficient is that many of us eat a diet that contains practically no magnesium.  Processed, refined and packaged foods, white flour, meat, and dairy contain no magnesium and if this is what your diet consist of then you will be deficient in magnesium as none of these foods contain magnesium.  Even eating a whole foods diet can leave you magnesium deficient as our soils are now depleted and don’t have the correct levels of minerals such as magnesium in them.

Our magnesium levels are also decreased by:

  • alcohol
  • salt
  • coffee
  • phosphoric acid in fizzy drinks
  • prolonged or intense stress
  • antibiotics and other drugs

On top of that if this is the type of diet and lifestyle you are leading then your gut is probably compromised, reducing your ability to absorb magnesium.  To properly absorb magnesium we need a lot of it in our diet and we need enough vitamin B6, vitamin D, and selenium to absorb and utilise the magnesium.

But don’t stress there is an easy fix…….

Stop Magnesium leaving your body by:

Eliminating caffeine, fizzy drinks, salt and sugar, limiting alcohol and making sure you take time out for relaxation.  Following these guidelines will also help you sleep better.

Include Foods High in Magnesium in your diet:

  • Leafy Green Vegetables including parsley
  • Seaweed : Kelp and dulse
  • Nuts: almonds, cashews, brazil nuts, pecans and walnuts
  • Brown Rice
  • Figs and Dates
  • Avocado
  • Garlic

According to guidelines the minimum amount needed of magnesium is about 300 mg a day but in reality most of us get far less than 200 mg and we actually benefit from at least 400 and up to 1000mg per day, depending on your circumstances.

Taking a hot bath with Epsom salts is a great way to absorb and get a good amount of this much needed mineral, add in a few drops of lavender oil and you have the perfect way to relax and prepare for a good night’s sleep.

As mentioned sugar depletes magnesium levels and sugar cravings can be a sign of low magnesium so it can be a vicious cycle and low magnesium can impact our sleep.

Are you Entitled to this?

Have you ever considered whether Elite Health is possible?  I know when I was at my most ill, I was sick and tired and sick and tired of being sick and tired.  I just wanted to feel better, I wanted my energy back, in fact I wanted my life back.  I didn’t want to be on curled up on the sofa at 3pm in agony from bloating and cramps.  My Doctors couldn’t help me so I started my own journey to healing and curing myself and when I started to reduce my symptoms I began to believe anything was possible!  I started to feel better and eventually I got my life back I was no longer a “victim” of my health or lack of it, I was in control and the better I felt the better I wanted to feel and on the way I discovered and now truly believe we are entitled to Elite Health.  It is our birthright, our bodies are designed to be well, they are designed to heal themselves BUT if we don’t give them opportunity we stay stuck on the treadmill of being sick and tired.

Do you have symptoms you are “putting” up with?  Are you on medication that is sort of kind of helping?  Or on one medication to counteract the side effects of another medication?  This happened to me ….. I was told there was no cure, I’d have to be on medication for the rest of my life.  So I was given medication for endometriosis the long term affect of that would make my bones weak and possibly lead to osteoporosis, I then ended up with a spastic colon and was given more medication to ease the spasms and cramps, but that made me constipated, so I was given more medication to help with the constipation and of course along with all of this I was getting stressed and depressed, so I was put on more medication for pain and for depression ….. I was living my life in a haze and none of these medications were actually helping me.  Sure they reduced some symptoms but they weren’t curing me, then one day I decided I had had enough and I just stopped taking everything thing, now I don’t recommend this for anyone and it can be a very dangerous thing to do but personally I felt it was my only option.  I had to take back control of my health and I discovered along the way 80% of all illness is diet and lifestyle related so I changed my diet and lifestyle and in the process allowed my body to start healing itself but there seemed to be something missing my diet was very restricted as I had cut out a lot of foods that were causing my symptoms, as part of my research and studies as a clinical nutritionist I learned that all disease begins in the gut – A huge AHA moment for me as I figured if you can heal your gut you can fix the problem.  I then spent 4 years healing my gut and now I can eat all of the foods I had to remove from my diet, some of them I will always choose to avoid such as gluten, conventional dairy, processed and packaged foods as I know the damage they cause.  I am on the road to Elite Health and I share this story because you can be too if you choose it for yourself.

As part of my health journey I knew I needed to supplement as my body was nutrient deficient, our foods are depleted because our soils are depleted so we are effectively malnourished and I discovered this was one of the reasons my body could not start to heal, it was mineral and nutrient deficient but what happened was I took supplements that made me more ill ….. I know I was confused too.

I stopped taking all supplements until I discovered like processed and packaged food, supplements can also be really poor quality or they can be plant based and manufactured to the highest quality possible.  So I found the company that in my opinion made the best supplements from sourcing the raw materials, to testing, manufacturing and supplying checking that there were no additives, toxins, mounds etc in their products and I immediately started to feel better as I was giving my body what it needed.  Real plant based nutrients, vitamins, minerals and herbs and these are the supplements I continue to use and use with all my clients was fantastic results.  Then imagine my surprise when the company started talking about gut health and the microbiome being the cornerstone of your health, I was so excited!!  They then went on to de elope a 21 Day programme scientifically proven and clinically tested to improve the balance of your microbiome and to start to heal your gut, I was amazed and a little annoyed to be honest – I spent 4 years doing what my clients can now do in 21 Days!!!

I am sure you have seen all the recent articles where scientists are now linking the health of our gut/ microbiome to everything from Arthritis and Alzheimer’s to Rosacea, Heart Health. Sinus Issues and even our weight.  Elite Health is something we are all entitled to but as Hippocrates the father of modern medicine said 100s of years ago “all disease begins in the gut” and modern science is finally catching up!!

The root cause of our health issues are:

  • Poor quality modern diet – over farming, unseasonal produce, foods kept in cold storage
  • Type II malnutrition due to our poor quality diet
  • Medication and antibiotics that damage and deplete our microbiome
  • Alcohol – just 1 glass of wine can tip the balance as it encourages the growth of yeast and harmful bacteria
  • Environmental toxins – our skincare, household cleaners, pesticides on our food, as well as pollution

If our gut is functioning optimally it can get rid of the toxins, if not our bodies become overwhelmed, inflamed and start to break down causing symptoms we think are “normal” headaches, joint aches and pain, weight issues, arthritis, menopause, IBS, PMS.

In our modern 21st Century world we assume someone else will look after our health, but we have a food industry that cares nothing about health and a healthcare industry that cares very little about food when food is the cornerstone of our health.

In my clinical health practice I promote health using food and food based supplements in a targeted way and this is why I am offering you access to the 21 Day Purify Programme, if you want to improve your health, give your microbiome the overhaul it needs to start clean and fuel your Elite Health journey and be part of a supportive, like minded community and as a by product start to reverse signs of ageing, boost your energy and lose stubborn belly fat then contact me, our next group programme starts on 26th June and we have a very special VIP offer for 4 people signing up together, so what about you?  Will you join us and invest in your long term health?

Junk Food and Thoughts = Junk Brain

Just like a car we need fuel, oil and water to function.  Just as you would not put diesel in a petrol car or vice versa, the type of food we consume can either help to increase our energy and improve our health or it can make us feel tired, lacking in energy and cause our health to deteriorate.  Optimal health does not depend on the stage you are at in your life or your health, it is something that can always change and be improved by changing the way we Eat, Think and Move.

In my opinion “junk food” is not food it is junk, junk food has no nutrients, it is usually made up mostly of chemicals and preservatives and it damages the body’s organs, weakens the immune system and leads to illness and disease.  Did you know that Alzheimer’s is linked to your sugar intake; sugar has such a huge detrimental effect in our body.  It creates inflammation in the body; it affects the gut, the organs and even affects our neural pathways in the brain.

Junk food = junk brain.  Poor nutrition will affect your thoughts and moods as well as your physical health.  Poor nutrition leads to high blood sugar and this causes the following imbalances in the brain:

  • you become over stimulated
  • you have difficulty concentrating
  • you may become agitated
  • you become restless

Once blood sugar spikes it then drops and we end up with low blood sugar which leads to not thinking straight, being tired and angry, lack of focus, poor or very little sleep and sugar cravings

So you need to keep your blood sugar balanced by eating vegetables, high quality protein and fats and low sugar fruit and make sure you have an adequate intake of water.  Your brain needs water; just a 2% drop can reduce concentration.

Junk Food can lead to junk thoughts and vice versa, we don’t think we are good enough, thin enough, popular enough so we don’t look after our health and our bodies and we eat “junk food” to comfort ourselves.  Our we eat junk food and this affects our brain and our energy levels which affects how we feel and now we think.  In the last 7 years that I have been working with clients I have found that almost everyone I work with has “junk thoughts” which contribute to their ill health.  These are thoughts such as:

  • I am not good enough
  • I am not worthy
  • I am not deserving
  • I can’t do it / have it / change it

These are just a sample of thoughts and beliefs that are running through most people’s minds over and over again as long as they persist it is hard to change them.  Having negative thoughts causes negative emotional stress and this weakens the immune system and the immune system becomes powerless to protect us from illness.

“For this is the great error of our day that the physicians separate the soul from the body” Hippocrates

Your health, energy and mood at a very basic level are as good as your last meal and your daily thoughts.

When I was at my most ill, I was laying on my sofa by 3pm every day in agony, I was not sleeping at night and my social life ceased to exist as I never knew when I would feel sick.  I had clothes in 3 different sizes from an 8 to a 12 as depending on how bloated my tummy was depended on what size clothes I had to wear.  Once I realised that my diet was playing a major role in my health or lack of it, I changed my diet, my lifestyle and the exercise I was doing and I got significantly better.  About 80% of my symptoms disappeared but there just seemed to be something missing, something that I could not quite put my finger on.  It took me a few years but I finally identified that it was my thoughts and beliefs that were holding me back.  I had believed that the three different illnesses I had were “incurable” that I would always suffer from them, but once I realised that I could change my thoughts and beliefs about what is and isn’t possible this was the final piece of the puzzle and I finally healed completely. It is because of this that I now do what I do, to help others solve their health issues in as short as time as possible, not spend years and years being ill, being sick and tired of being sick and tired as I did.

If junk food and negative thoughts have a hold on you and you would like to break free, I would love to hear from you to help you kick these habits that are not serving you and help you form habits that will serve you today and for the rest of your life.  You can either get help through my book If you Believe you Can Heal Yourself You Can“, or try our 5 Day Introductory online programme “Change your Mind, Change Your Life” to address your “junk thoughts”, click here to register and we look forward to connecting with you.

Energy Balancing Therapy (EBT)

Acu-Sound Therapy which is used in the Energy Balance Therapy Session is an extremely effective treatment.  Musical tuning forks are used in a non-invasive way to re-align and balance the body’s natural energy fields and to help clear energetic blockages by working on specific Acu points in the body.  The ThetaHealing® Technique is also used in the Energy Balance Therapy; this is a meditation training technique utilizing a spiritual philosophy for improvement and evolvement of mind, body and spirit.

Acu points are part of the meridian circuits which have a direct relationship to the main organs and the endocrine glandular system. The optimum performance of the meridian system is essential to the general health and well being of the body as blockages in these circuits can lead to pain and disease in the body.

Through Sound Therapy and ThetaHealing our aim is to bring the body and mind back into harmony.  Like a well tuned instrument, the body is a rhythmic, harmonious form unless its vibratory field is disrupted.

EBT is based on the principle that everything in the Universe is Energy, everything is in a state of vibration.  The chakras, bones and organs in the body all possess a different vibration.  When an organ, or part of the body, is vibrating out of harmony, it is called “dis-ease” or disease.  A body is in a healthy state of being when each cell, each organ creates a resonance that is in harmony with the whole being.  Sound, both audible and vibrational locates and resolves energetic disharmony in the body’s energy fields which supports healing.  EBT is a subtle energy therapy that is used to treat physical and emotional ailments; it works at a fundamental energetic level.  This treatment is non-invasive as it is applied when fully clothed.

As mentioned when we have problems in our Energy System this can lead to dis-ease if not rectified, when we can rectify the imbalances within the energy system these problems can be resolved.  The sound that resonates from the instruments used in EBT passes in and through the Chakras and Aura into your physical body, helping to align and balance the body’s own inner sound and this can help to release emotions, clearing blockages in the Aura and Chakras.  This will aid the body back into perfect balance allowing the physical body to heal itself. This therapy will leave you feeling relaxed and full of energy.

Using the tuning forks we help to break up negative energy patterns and this includes negative thoughts.  The Tibetan bowl that is used also has healing qualities, the bowl allows the body to synchronise back to its natural state. Everything vibrates, so the Tibetan bowls vibration will affect your body in a positive way, by allowing all the energy centres in the body (chakras) to become balanced.

This alternative form of therapy involves using specific sounds and vibrations to relieve stress, pain and bring about balance within the body.   When a tuning fork is struck, it not only vibrates the fork itself, but it also vibrates the surrounding air space with the same frequency of vibration. This sends the vibration as an impulse through the air. This vibration can be harnessed to help increase the healing energy inside us to:

  • Improve overall physical health
  • Relieve pain and stress
  • Balance the Nervous system
  • Reduce Inflammation
  • Uncover & balance emotions
  • Induce relaxation
  • Facilitate inner harmony and wholeness
