A ray of hope for January ‘Blues’; Case study Treatments & Special Offer

January 26, 2015

Following a ‘Blue’ themed party at a friend’s house on Saturday, to cheer us up from ‘Winter Blues’ l am adding my very own Seasonal speciality; a Special Offer for all those who felt the pinch a week ago, on the unpleasantly titled ‘Blue Monday’, as it was deemed the day which many may have abandoned their health aims & left their New year’s resolutions by the wayside…

This time of year is ideal for beginning our own, personal challenges to conquor and to find some assistance to assist us in these, where necessary.

Recent Case Study: I have spoken to 2 patients in both my Central and South London Clinics, who wish to have just that; support during times of their lives when their health issues are really crying out to be addressed and can be ignored no longer. Both had been prescribed medications through conventional means, though neither had proved effective.

A 1 hr consultation each later and both patients feel satisfied to accept the Naturopathic approach to their Treatment Plans complete with wholesome, easy to follow, individualized recipes sent to them post-session by email.

A new beginning could be just what the doctor ordered & if this is timely & relevant reminder for you, please take advantage of our Special Offer for January 2015.

An initial Naturopathic Nutrition Consultation for 1hr at either my Central or South London Clinic for the price of £64.00 (* 20% saving on standard clinic fees) (90 mins appts by practitioner discretion)

Home Visits from £50.00 (within London)

FREE 15 min consultation available NOW!

What do you want to give up for Lent? 40 days of FREE Top Tips

March 4, 2014

If, like me, you were brought up in the UK in ’70s in UK, you’d be familiar with having had chocolate as a child and through life in general; not so in Vietnam, as I’m reliably informed by my Vietnamese house-mate, that since the country is so hot and was impoverished, post-war era, chocolate was an unheard of luxury and they didn’t eat it really at all, since it couldn’t be stored without a fridge (& they had no fridges at that time). My housemate therefore has no sweet tooth for any chocolate substance, to the same degree as us ‘Westerners’.

I enjoy chocolate even more since I’ve been eating ‘conscious’ style raw \ organic ones since I started avoiding ‘commercial’ versions which are far lower in cacao content on account of their being mixed with dairy products and sugar. Having been diagnosed with candida 11 years ago, which left me feeling awful, I took the decision to cut-out all sugar, dairy & wheat from my diet and instantly felt much better but it took a while to continue it onwards.

I had to cut out chocolate for 9 (long) months, which was agonising at first, as a minor-chocoholic, but after this period of time, I felt free from any addiction and clear in myself to never touch it again. I used carob powder as an alternative substance, to make mousses, sweets and dairy-free nut & seed milkshakes, which is absolutely delicious and a v.nutritious ingredient in its own right.

However, this was not to be the case as I felt a new respect for the cacao bean and chose to find alternative options to the commercial varieties available and the alternative raw options which weren’t quiet to my taste. Hence, my love of raw chocolate adventures began to take form and my respect for it deepens during Lent time, when for another 40 days, I use carob and other substances (all legal) to replace the cacao beans…

What are you going to give up for Lent this year? Chocolate, alcohol, crisps…?

For the following 40 days, I aim to deliver my Top Tips on the most popular substances to give up for Lent; how to cope with any withdrawal symptoms, what to expect in terms of results and benefits and what to eat & drink instead; the best alternatives available.

Day 1. Chocolate

As an alternative, try Carob powder in dairy-free ‘milk’ shakes, sweets and mousses. Recipes here…

To mimic that chocolatey taste & flavour, Carob is my all-time favourite ingredient (& that of children too).

Carob Milkshake

Ingredients

20g Pumpkin Seeds

30g Walnuts

1 Banana or plantain

1tbsp Carob powder

Method

  1. Blend nuts and seeds with water to form a milk
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and blend to form a creamy chocolate-tasting shake.
  3. Perfect for Lent!
