Headache & Migraine – why you get them and how to treat them holistically

Headache and migraine are unfortunately one of the most common wellbeing complaints that I come across in my practise. As with any physical health or wellbeing concern, it is important to get to the underlying cause in order to prevent constant reoccurrence.  If we just keep taking painkillers we are ignoring the message that our body is sending us about something that needs to be dealt with on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. In this video I discuss how to determine the root causes of headache and migraine as well as how to go about managing and treating the problem in a holistic way so that you can reduce the frequency and severity - and perhaps even prevent - future episodes. I talk about things that you can do from all aspects of Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing - Food, Movement, Sleep, Surroundings and Being. Essential Oils can be extremely helpful when dealing with Headache & Migraine.  In my own home I do not have pain-killers in the first aid kit because I find that oils are more beneficial and less harmful for my family than medications. The ones that I find best are: Peppermint Past Tense If you'd prefer to read the full text of this Blog, rather than watching the video, it was published by Sivana East.

Mould: the phantom menace

Many very common symptoms such as fatigue, joint pain, respiratory congestion and brain fog can be caused by a silent and often-undiagnosed household toxin - mould! This video discusses how and when to look into whether mould may be causing your wellbeing issues and what to do about it.  If you would prefer to read my Blog on the topic, it was published by the Wellness Universe. This topic falls into one of the aspects of Evenstar 5 Star Wellbeing - Surroundings.  I also cover some simple steps to take to reduce the risk of mould becoming a problem in your home: Open up: open doors and windows as often as possible, fresh moving air is the enemy of mould! Clean regularly: vacuum and dust, change linens Dehumidify: if you live in a humid climate, or your home has been diagnosed as damp, a dehumidifier will help to reduce the moisture build up that mould loves Indoor plants: plants naturally remove toxins from the air, and of course they also produce oxygen so they will make a big improvement on the quality of the air in your home (or workplace) Use essential oils: NB. definitely do not use artificial air fresheners – they are literally adding toxins into your surroundings by masking unpleasant smells with chemicals. Tea tree oil is anti-fungal and has a beautiful fresh aroma, it is literally

What are you really allergic to?

I love Spring but for many it is far from their favourite season because they spend it coughing and sneezing! 🤧💐🌾 Exploring the underlying metaphysical causes of your allergies can result in long-lasting relief that is much more beneficial than simply taking medication to deal with symptoms!  Check out this Vlog for more information.  If you prefer to read my article on the topic, it was published by Sivana East. Essential Oils for Hayfever As discussed in the video, having a series of energy healing sessions with the intention of overcoming allergies will be beneficial. Using essential oils is a wonderful way to enhance and continue your body’s innate ability to heal itself. These are the oils that I would recommend when dealing with respiratory allergies: tea tree: helps us to move from intolerance to understanding, is cleansing on all energetic levels and an immune-stimulant eucalyptus: helps us to reintegrate after feeling overwhelmed, increases cellular oxygen supply, crisp and clearing german chamomile: helps us to release feelings of being imposed upon to once again be free, it is anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic lemongrass: helps us to feel expanded rather than restricted, it is very invigorating whilst also stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system douglas fir: helps us to move from feeling inadequate to recognizing our worth once more, cleansing and invigorating, warming to body and soul thyme: helps us to find our dynamism

The Power of Pain

This video on the Power of Pain was recorded during National Pain Week (23-29th July 2018). In it I discuss the following aspects of pain: its purpose the metaphysical point of view my own recent experience with it treating it holistically with reiki using essential oils to treat it The Essential Oils I talk about Essential oils also work on all energetic levels of the body and provide a beautiful take home tool (for those not trained in Reiki!) to continue their treatment.  Essential oils all have a particular emotional journey that they help us to move along, which is perfect when we want to tackle the underlying emotional causes of our pain, without even necessarily knowing what they are. Interestingly all of the essential oils that have strong analgesic (pain killing) properties also help us with being emotionally stuck, constricted, fearful or controlled, which is so important when we remember that pain is giving us a message to stop and reassess something in our life. My top pick is Rosemary because it is strongly analgesic and also helps to eliminate emotional restrictions that prevent us from moving toward our higher purpose. Other oils that are useful here are: peppermint (especially where you need focus), fennel (especially where you feel unfulfilled), ginger (especially where you feel depleted), lavender (especially where you feel neglected), marjoram (especially where you feel anxious), and

In winter we want to balance the cold weather by eating and drinking warm things.  The benefits of chicken soup are not an old wives’ tale!  Bone broth is so nourishing and healing.  Remember that the majority of your immune system lives in your gut so you need to give it whole foods from the earth that it recognises and can obtain the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that it requires for you to heal you. As well as bone broth make sure you include good fats from olive oil and oily fish, dark chocolate (yey!), eggs and lots of fruit and vegetables of all the colours of the rainbow!  For immune boosting flavourings you can’t go past garlic, ginger and turmeric – veggie curry is sounding good! Movement – don’t stop your exercise routine just because it’s winter.Your lymphatic system, which is critical to fighting illness cannot operate effectively without muscular contraction, as it removes wastes and toxins.  So keep on moving peeps!  You might change your exercise routine with the seasons just like you change your food. Perhaps now is the time to
