Another BIG Month?!

Can you believe it’s only four weeks till Christmas??!!

Wow….the year just keeps rolling away.

Over the last month I squeezed in one last October Business Month Mad Hatter’s High Tea in Katherine, which was attended by some lovely local women…whom I hope to cross paths again in the future.

Connie (Naturopathic student) assisted me for the month…gaining knowledge & confidence, plus getting an insight into everyday life as a Naturopath. I thank her & wish her well for her future.

My Certified Organic Herbal Teas are jumping onto…& off the shelves sooo quickly! You can now find them for a cuppa in-store or take home packs at Kings Wholefood Artisan  at CDU Palmerston & Chantilly Kitchen Tearoom in Nightcliff; Bits4Bub store has those specific for mums & bubs, while Harvest Press have a variety ready to go for the those wanting to support everyday health & wellbeing – both at Coolalinga Central. Plus…Cafe Eco in the city have them ready to  go on their shelves for opening day!!

The GK Vitality Ladies Pamper Lunch last weekend was a great opportunity for women to come together with friends….to enjoy a light lunch & glass of wine….whilst experiencing some amazing products on display by some beautiful local business ladies. If you missed out….don’t worry it will be back early next year bigger & better!!

Next week….Friday 1st December, I will be at the Woodroffe Primary Christmas Market from 5:30-8:30pm…..with a special visit from Santa at 7pm!! There will be food trucks, raffles, live music & heaps of Christmas gift ideas….all for a gold coin donation for entry. Love to see you there!!

Katherine Clinic is Here to Stay!

I really appreciate all the team at Katherine Laser, Chiropractic & Sleep Clinic. Thank you for opening your arms & allowing me to begin holding a regular Naturopathic Clinic in Katherine.

The first Katherine clinic on 12th & 13th January 2018, I will be operating out of the Chiropractic Health Care Centre, Katherine. Found on the corner of Warburton  & First Streets.

Thank you to Dr Joseph Isac, Dr David Knight & Kylie Marshall for welcoming me into your clinic.

Have you heard of Golden Paste????

I LOVE turmeric!!!

I have been using Golden Paste on my fur babies for about the last 3 years…..& they just enjoy it in their dinner each night. My Rotti “Jax”, had occasionally walked like she’s in a bit of pain in her back legs & I really wanted to nip it in the bud before she had real problems. So I started her on the Golden Paste daily…..along with fish oils to ease the inflammation & reduce any pain.

And I truly believe it works. Not only does it help with pain & inflammation….but turmeric also helps the immune system & supports the liver – plus is a fantastic antioxidant. Both of my pups coats are amazing….& they just keep going from strength to strength.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2C organic turmeric powder
  • 1C water (extra if needed)
  • 1/3C oil (try coconut, extra virgin olive, or flax/linseed oil)
  • 2-3tsp black pepper (freshly ground)
  • 10-20g organic Ceylon Cinnamon (optional to help reduce dogs urine smelling like “cat pee”)

Method:

  1. Bring the turmeric & water to a boil, then lower the heat & simmer until you have a thick paste. This should take about 7-10 minutes & you may need to add additional water along the way.
  2. Add the freshly ground pepper & oil at the end of cooking, when the turmeric & water mixture has cooled down to just warm. Add in the cinnamon if desired. Stir well to incorporate the oil & allow to cool.

    The Golden Paste will keep for 2 weeks, refrigerated.

    Freeze a portion if you think you have too much to use within two weeks. You can find small 1/4-1/2tsp molds to use for this if you prefer.

     Add it to your pet’s dinner plate or your horse feed … run wild! You can even use for Golden Milk, Smoothies, stir into Yogurt, add to your dinner plate as a condiment… it’s just as good for you too!

Need some Positive Self Recognition & Self Esteem???

Yellow Cone Flower

Sometimes we may feel inferior & unaccepted by others…maybe even undervalued. This can lead us to feel depressed & taken for granted.

The Yellow Cone Flower Essence can help with recognition of self….& direct you to the most important opinion, it’s the one you have of yourself. Personal growth & expansion built on positive self esteem….learning to value one’s self is what this flower essence can help to enhance. Being content with who you are…& your self assessment is positive, clear & strong.

I am a being

of limitless wonder

of endless surprises

of flowing potential

of inner Joy.

Edamame Hummus Dip

 

I see lots of menopausal women in my clinic….& they often ask…is soy ok for me??? This is a simple answer of YES – as a ‘real’ FOOD, not generally a supplement. It’s all about….BALANCE (my favourite word!!)

Edamame (soybeans) are a phyto-oestrogenic food rich in isoflavones. These are compounds that have a weak oestrogenic effect & bind to oestrogen receptors in the body. Including these as part of a balanced diet may help reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes & vaginal dryness, & may even protect you from breast & ovarian cancers.

Soy beans are full of B-vitamins & are particularly rich in choline – needed for brain function & also maintains the myelin sheath which protects our nerve cells. They are jam packed with amino acids….(the building blocks for protein), iron, calcium & Omega 3 EFA’s making them perfect for vegetarians. Your best choice is to buy organic soybeans when you can so you know they’re not genetically modified….& enjoying in moderation.

Ingredients:

  • x1 tin organic chick peas
  • 1/2C shelled organic edamame beans
  • 1C baby spinach
  • Juice 1/2 lemon
  • 2Tbsp olive oil
  • x1 clove garlic
  • 2 heaped Tbsp tahini
  • 1/2tsp cumin
  • handful of parsley…& any other herbs you like!
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/4C water
  • top with sesame seeds

Method:

  1. Place all ingredients except sesame seeds into food processor & blend till smooth.
  2. Add a little more water if necessary.
  3. Top with sesame seeds & enjoy with veggie sticks.

Anxiety….

Anxiety is something I commonly see in clinic…& it can affect people from from varying levels.

Symptoms of anxiety can be very unsettling. Your heart rate increases, your mind races & you can no longer think straight. Though everyone experiences anxiety a bit differently, there are some more common symptoms to look out for.

Physical sensations:

  •  racing heart;
  • hot flushes, sweating & skin clamminess;
  •  rapid breathing; &/or
  •  frequent gastrointestinal upsets.

Emotional sensations:

  • feelings of excess worry, panic, fear or guilt;
  • obsessive thinking & behaviours; &/or
  •  feeling generally tense and wound up.

Some Lifestyle tips for you to try:

  • Connect with friends – keeping in touch with people maintains your support network;
  •  Exercise (ideally outdoors) – regular exercise has been shown to improve mood & reduce feelings of stress;
  • Choose healthy foods – consume protein at each meal & avoid refined & sugary foods. This can help balance your blood sugar levels, reducing mood imbalances & lessening anxiety;
  • Avoid caffeine – stimulants such as caffeine can exacerbate anxiety; &
  • Breathe! – if you start to feel panicky or anxious, focus on taking some slow, purposeful, deep breaths, helping you return to a state of calm. Meditation can also help to quieten your mind & instill calm. I hope to bring a meditation class to the clinic soon.  🙂

If you can relate to any of the above, give me a call to see how I can help you. I may use Flower Essences, Herbs, nutrients &/or herbal teas. Each of us are individuals….so no two cases are the same.  🙂

New Clients Needed….Katherine??!!

As you all probably know….I’ve been travelling to Katherine once a month for well over 18mths now. I started doing this as I had several locals had tried my certified organic herbal teas at Malak Marketplace & asked if I could come to town to support their health.

I truly love going down there each month to assist this beautiful community….but it needs to be sustainable for me to continue. Yes…I’ve helped many people, hence why they no longer need my help!! From stress, gut concerns, persistent colds/flu’s, hormone balancing, pain relief, children’s health & emotional support. This is an amazing feeling & this is why I do what I do…to see positive results after people taking control of the lives & health again. I definitely plan to be finishing out the year in Katherine…..but will need to see how things go in the New Year.

So if you know anyone who is open to natural therapies in Katherine & who would benefit from herbal & nutritional support or Flower Essences for their health & wellbeing, please pass on my details.

Thank You for Your Support…..Love & Light, Kristy x
