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!

Recipe from Doug English (Australian holistic vet & world leader in treating animals with turmeric powder) http://turmericlife.com.au/turmeric-recipes-golden-paste/

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.

Recipe by Lisa Guy, naturopath.

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.  🙂
