Health Kinesiology for PMS

I have just witnessed another excellent outcome whilst treating a client for PMS with kinesiology. The lady came to see me because she was having terrible PMS symptoms; for 14 days every month she would be like a different person - unable to withstand any kind of stress, mood swings, aggressive to her family, tearful, vulnerable and depressed.

In the space of just three sessions, those symptoms have pretty much disappeared. After her last session she told me that the treatment had been 'life changing'.

PMS can sometimes be alleviated with nutrition, but there is often quite a strong emotional and psychological element to it which I think is why health kinesiology can be so successful in helping to resolve the condition. In most cases there will be a mixture of psychological work, allergy corrections, and corrections to help rebalance the magnetic field of the body (amongst other things) during the sessions. Nutritional supplements are often used too.

Do give me a call if this is something you'd like to discuss further.

Detox Retreats

Detox retreats involving juice fasts, colonic hydrotherapy, meditation and yoga are very popular. I know a few people who have done these kind of retreats in Thailand and other exotic countries. Travelling so far away is often prohibitively expensive though, and can eat up a large portion of precious annual leave.

There is a company called Vitality Detox Retreats who run four and seven day juice fasts in West Sussex. A whole range of therapies are available (including colon hydrotherapy) to support the fast and ensure that maximum, safe cleansing is achieved. This kind of retreat can be beneficial for a whole range of problems associated with a a toxic liver and bowel, and also for general health maintenance.

These retreats are excellent value for money, and can be much more convenient than travelling to a country far away.

Their website contains more information: If you decide to book, they will ask which practitioner referred you so please be sure to mention my name.


Mongolian BBQ

I just thought a I'd share with you one of the worst food horror stories I've heard in a long while.

One of my clients is working abroad at the moment. En route to China, she passed through Mongolia where there are very few fresh fruits or vegetables available. She was often confronted with large plates of deep fried pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and in Mongolia it is considered rude not to finish everything on your plate. I might add at this point, that this lady is recovering from an eating disorder and until recently would not even consider eating a small plate of normal pasta, let alone deep fried! So although a large portion of deep fried pasta might not be your ideal choice, for this lady it was a much bigger challenge. Still, she managed to eat everything she was confronted with, which is a significant achievement.

However, a bigger challenge lay ahead - the next time I heard from her, she reported she had been made to suck the marrow out of goat bones. For breakfast. Did I mention that she is also a vegetarian? Horrendous! I am not sure if I would be that brave in the same situation.

So, if you feel like a food challenge, and being taken well away from your comfort zone, I can thoroughly recommend a trip to Mongolia.
