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

Feeling Vulnerable….or Avoiding Reality

Wattle

Sometimes we may feel vulnerable….our focus scattered & lacking awareness of what’s really going on in ‘our’ world. Wattle Flower Essence can help to support a more mature & alert approach to circumstances – so we avoid unnecessary dangers.

It helps to steady the mind & face up to the consequences of our behaviour. To have a wise view of Life. The yellow colour brings joy & positivity to the circumstances. I found wattle in bloom everywhere on my recent trip to Perth.

Today I know but little

tomorrow I will know more.

Each step will bring me closer

to understanding

what lies beneath so many veils & layers,

which keys fit in which doors.

 

If you’d like to experience how Flower Essences may support you during emotional or challenging times….book an appointment with me today. For $125 for an initial consult (private health fund rebates available), you will get a personalised bottle of Flower Essences to support you along with the meditation poems to further enhance them into your life.

Meditation Time…

I’ve had many clients recently through the clinic whom I have suggested to try regular meditation. It can be a time for the body to ‘check in’ & re-balance. For me it may not always be in a structured meditation form…..even soaking in the Epsom salt bath listening to music or going for a mindful walk can be chill out time.

Here’s a link to a range of meditation apps for you to enjoy!

Not only can we benefit from regular meditation & Epsom salt baths…..but I’m sure some of you may love to use them with your ‘little ones’ too….especially at bedtime.

Here’s  a lovely link to an article & script for you to try meditation with your ‘little ones’.

With this combination….hopefully they will be sleeping soundly. If you have any further concerns, remember I’m only too happy to help them with extra herbs & nutrients…just give me a call to arrange an appointment.

Blissful Lavender Wish Balls….aaahhhh

Insomnia is something that can hit us randomly when we have busy minds…or for some it can be a nightly occurrence.

Aahhh…..Bliss!!!

There are many causes for insomnia…from various hormonal imbalances, stress, & stimulants such as alcohol, tea coffee, chocolate, & drugs may interfere with our sleep patterns too. As may late night meals, our restless sleeping partner or….shift work.

Now I can’t claim these Wish Balls will ‘cure’ your insomnia….though I’m sure they will enhance a still & mindful mind…& help to maintain some balance.

Nuts are a protein source to help maintain blood sugar levels plus rich in calcium & magnesium to support your nervous system; the dates are rich in tryptophan & iron…& of course the lavender is a well known herb to settle a restless mind & relax the nervous system.

I WISH YOU a restful sleep…… 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2C desiccated or shredded coconut, with extra for rolling in
  • 1C Macadamia nuts (activated if possible – or LSA if no macadamia nuts available)
  • 1C Cashews (activated if possible)
  • 3Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 3/4C Medjool dates (I like to soak mine first into water too)
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/tsp ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Vanilla pod, split & scraped (or pinch vanilla powder)
  • 2-3tsp dried Lavender

Method:

  1. Pop all ingredients into a food processor & blend until well combined with a nice texture.
  2. Using a teaspoon of mixture, form into little balls with damp hands. (I like ‘Lindt ball’ size)
  3. Cover the base of a bowl with extra coconut & roll the balls in the coconut to coat.
  4. Pop the Wish Balls into the fridge on a plate for 20-30mins to firm up before enjoying at night….or anytime!
  5. The can be kept in the fridge for a week or so…leftovers can be frozen in a sealed container. Makes 12-16 balls.

Why not make a double batch & freeze them!!!

Where’s YOUR Inner Quiet???

The beauty of Flower Essences is they work on the vibrational level between mind & matter…rising up to produce Qi (Energy). They can help us to shift our thought pattern & how we respond to a situation….they simply energise the “mind stuff” to activate a new & healing thought form.

“As we think….so we become.”

I have a number of children currently taking Flower Essences to support them in various circumstances….commonly related to various behaviours at school. I love to see the joy their family express when it seems like no-one understands…but the flowers seem to be able to explain – & then support the positive shift beautifully.

Of late….I’ve been finding my “Inner Quiet”….Rose Cone Flower.

At peace amongst the bustle

slow amidst the rush,

thoughts rise & fall

on my inner lake

within always a hush.

If you’d like a individualised Flower Essence experience….book online or call me to discuss how this may support you.  🙂
