Japanese health secrets being unveiled...
TOP TIP #2
This will be no surprise to anyone that’s eaten good Japanese food.
THEY EAT REALLY WELL BALANCED, NUTRITIOUS FOOD 🥘 🇯🇵
Lots of greens & vegetables, pickled foods (natural antibiotics) with each meal & lots of fish (good fats).
They also serve it beautifully which makes you respect the food offered and also by using chopsticks, it slows down the process which is good for digestive reasons but also social reasons.
PS. I ate fried crickets last night 🤢
A decade ago I made the life changing decision to switch my nursing & pathology career to a degree @endeavourcollege
in Nutritional Medicine.
I'm now running my own business practising as a Clinical Nutritionist, creating content for top notch magazines all whilst being a mother to three young children + one man child. I'm not super woman, I've simply created a career that allows me to enjoy the best of both worlds. .
The natural health industry is booming & there is an increasing emphasis backed by medical experts on lifestyle choices as a critical factor in staying well.
Take a scroll through social media and you'll see that wellness is the “new black,” We are in a time where we prioritise well-balanced physical and mental health. We are experiencing a phenomenon where health is creeping into all aspects of life and experience. .
I feel ever so grateful to be a the forefront of the natural health industry where my qualifications are recognised by accredited associations & I have access to practitioner only products. The results I see in my clients is empowering and it gives me so much pleasure to share my knowledge. .
To know how to properly nourish and nurture yourself and the ones you love will be one of the most empowering things you'll ever learn. .
For more information on how to begin a career in Natural health i encourage you to head over to ecnh.co/ginau & register for the open day on the 6th October.

• HAPPY OIL • Orange is a great oil to pair with other oils. I love to use 1 drop of Orange and 1 drop of Joy oil as a perfume. Perfume is one of those things I found difficult to let go of when I started this new journey but now I know we spray perfume often on the thinnest part of our skin and it gets absorbed straight away. Perfume is one of those nasty endocrine disrupters, it messes with your system. I'm so glad I've found natural replacements for my perfume. Although I still miss my perfume sometimes I know it's better for me. With all things in life do it in moderation. So yeah here and there I still use my perfume but not using it on a daily basis anymore has benefited me so much already. #ditchandswitch
So excited our order has arrived.....✨
Influenza season is around the corner, so a timely post from Richard Robinson who advises on the homeopathic treatment and prevention of this common winter illness. 'One of my first personal experiences of the effectiveness of homeopathy was shortly after I started the long course in homeopathy at the Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital some years ago. I had been out for the day one Saturday, and on arriving home began to feel very unwell. I was shivery, hot and cold, with teeth chattering and feeling very weak. I dragged myself to bed with an inward groan, knowing that I would be unfit for anything for the next few days. I still had a clear enough head though, to think that since I was studying homeopathy, now would be a good time to see if these homeopathic remedies actually worked. Since my symptoms appeared to fit the Gelsemium picture I took a pilule of Gelsemium 30c followed by another one half an hour later, and then dozed off. I woke up after an hour and got out of bed – all the symptoms had completely disappeared! I was astounded! I had never had such an experience before – any previous time that I had had ‘flu symptoms like this, they would have been sure to last several days, with or without conventional treatment. I was very impressed!' Read on for remedy information which may help you or others with the 'flu (hopefully you don't need it): https://www.britishhomeopathic.org/charity/how-we-can-help/articles/conditions/i/influenza/

✨ MINDFULNESS MEDITATION ✨
Next time you’re feeling anxious, place both feet on the ground, hands in your lap and do the following steps:
1: Name 5 things you can hear.
2: Name 4 things you can see.
3: Name 3 things you can touch.
3: Name 2 things you can smell.
4: Name 1 thing you can taste.
This mental shift helps decrease the negative effects of stress, mild depression and anxiety. Blood pressure drops, heart rate slows down and breathing becomes slower and deeper. I learnt about this technique having CBT and it seriously works wonders if you’re in a fluster or worried. 🌝🍃
So many things, this.
And I know being on the brand side of life for my entire career there’s never enough diversity in the bodies, colors, sexuality, and the socioeconomic backgrounds you portray ... A N D you can never ever win in meeting the market for what they’re ready for without going too far that it just doesn’t resonate or the intention is completely lost because it is disregarded. But this, looking back at the last decade of my career in branding feels like progress with style and grace. This is boss. 🙌🏻✨🌚🌝
26 bones, 33 joints, and some 200,000 nerve endings (exteroceptors) on the sole of each foot.
Some people are not comfortable receiving bodywork in general, but still enjoy touch therapy in the form of foot massage. We can experience a host of benefits from receiving intentional work directly on this part of the body.
Applying my training from Chiang Mai, Thailand, when I give 1 hour Reflexology sessions I begin with warming the tissue with fluid motions and stretches, and then work acupressure points with use my own thumbs as well as the softer and pointer sides of a Thai acupressure stick, as featured here.
Helping to address either a stagnation 氣滯, a blockage 氣閉, an excess in flow or a deficiency 氣虚 in qi vital energy, Reflexology is a gentle non-invasive form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which will not interfere with any other form of treatment or medication. It should feel deeply relaxing and at the same time stimulating. Improving your vitality during the day and the quality of your restful sleep at night.
Also, foot-on-foot is a special feature of my #ashiatsu
barefoot sessions, so be sure not to miss out on that!

Gut health is at it again! 🤩
You would not think kidney stones….and think gut bacteria. Recent research is showing that certain strains of gut bacteria can actually help prevent the formation of kidney stones, especially in individuals who experience recurrent kidney stones (ouch!).
The majority of kidney stones are made up of calcium oxalate. Various factors have been identified to contribute to the formation of kidney stones, such as improper diet, dehydration, excess weight, and certain medical conditions.
But now, we have another potential risk factor/hero: gut bacteria. The key player in preventing the formation of calcium oxalate stones is the gut bacteria Oxalabacter Formigenes. These buggers break down oxalate in your intestines and use it up for their energy source, preventing the oxalate from accumulating in the kidneys and forming kidney stones. How brilliant! 💡
Two other bacteria that can also help out in this process are Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.
I mean…I don’t know about you, but I am constantly amazed by how these gut bacteria play so many roles (many of which we are still learning about) and just how phenomenal the human body is with all of its interconnections!🤓

Slight detour from the plan today.. food poisoning(?) back with a vengeance.. Bedside duties in lieu of sightseeing for me.. 🤞Hoping there’s nothing more serious going on and it’s just a severe case of acute gastritis. Pain is off the charts. Awaiting results of tests. Please send prayers and healing light our way! ✨ #thankgoodnessfortravelinsurance #thispoorguyneedsabreak @hugonk7
