Weight Loss – Benefits of Chromium & Green Tea

A recent study, as published in the December edition of Nutrients, supports the use of dietary chromium and green tea supplementation. Obesity is an increasing health concern and there are urgents calls to re-class it as a disease. Healthy weight loss is best achieved under the guidance of a CAM Practitioner, where a person’s individualised needs can be monitored and met.

Bio-available chromium can help regulate blood sugars and protect lean body mass. Green tea is an excellent anti-oxidant.  Vitachrome Active, a popular holistic supplement, has been used to help the body deal with stress, as part of a weight loss program and is often used to improve stamina and athletic performances. Ideally, a CAM Provider can evaluate people’s health requirements and create a helpful strategy to achieve wellness goals.  The article discusses the benefit of supplementaion and how to protect lean body mass during weight loss.

Homeopathy – ECHAMP reports growth in France & Italy

Recent surveys, as reported by ECHAMP, the European Coalition on Homeopathy & Anthroposophic Medicinal Products, show that homeopathy continues to grow in France and Italy. We are happy to add that growth in Ireland continues. Homeopathy is commonly used for a wide range of issues including emotional and physical health and the maintenance of good health.

Support for homeopathy will keep emerging as its use in both acute and chronic complaints offers relief and results to end-users. Increasing use stems from growing confidence among doctors, therapists and pharmacies. Websites like the Homeopathy Research Institute  offer informative resources for readers looking for additional research.

2018; A Year in Review

This time of year is a wonderful opportunity to reflect and show gratitude for the 12 months gone by. Thanks to all our lovely customers for their continued support throughout the year and for your engagement and feedback.

The New Vistas Teaching Academy facilitated various training and seminars throughout 2018. Company philosophy and practice encourages on-going employee and CAM Provider training, personal growth and development. Thank you to all who attended our events this year. We hosted 9 Test Kit Testing workshops throughout Ireland and the UK as well as 7 Homotoxicology workshops. Our sincere gratitude is expressed as always to our tutors Elaine Geary, Yvonne McLaughlin, Sally Ann Hutcheson, Patricia Raven, Anja Ottenheim and Dr Heli Goode for their continued dedication and sharing of knowledge to the wider CAM community. Their active participation throughout the Academy is always greatly enjoyed by attendees. We will be circulating our 2019 Training Plan in the New Year.

This year also welcomed the return of Ian White to our shores. In May, Ian guided participants through three ever-evolving Australian Bush Flower Essences workshops in Malahide Castle; Women’s Health, Mental & Emotional Well-Being and Ian’s own Masterclass. Each day was anchored with a strong sense of empowerment and we look forward to future collaborations with ABFE and IIHF.

Agnes McGuinness, renowned Irish Naturopath, also released her first book in the Spring. It documents fresh and new ideas for encouraging good health and vitality. Agnes talks about how she came to be one of Ireland’s most in-demand and respected CAM Practitioners. She discusses the history of integrative therapies and shares some of her favourite home remedies. “Healing: 45 Year Journey” is also available in local health stores and through Amazon.

In July, we participated in the historic New Horizons in Water Science – Evidence for Homeopathy event in London. Lord Ken Ward-Atherton brought together some of the world’s most respected scientists, all in the name of homeopathy and promoting the scientific integration of vibrational medicine and mainstream healthcare.

This year, we introduced Nicotinex and Phosphatex to our Xenobiotic range. Nicotinex helps clear negative taints surrounding the ill-effects of smoking or nicotine toxicity. Phosphatex is used to help lesson agricultural toxicity. With a rise in reports of Multiple Chemical Toxicity (MCT) this year and antibiotic resistance, Xenobiotics become more and more relevant.

May 2019 bring forth great health and blessings to you all. Seasons Greetings.

We keep Angela’s family in our thoughts and prayers at this time of year, and are forever grateful for the energy, enthusiasm and passion she brought to kinesiology and CAM therapies.

World Diabetes Day

Today is World Diabetes Day!

The aim of this day is to raise awareness of a prevalent condition that affects millions of people worldwide. The day gives the CAM community the opportunity to highlight what can be done to maintain good control of Type I diabetes and to help reduce and avoid long term complications. Most importantly World Diabetes Day focuses attention on the prevention of Type II diabetes. There have been huge advances in this area over recent years but it is extremely important that research and development continues to ensure prevention of the condition for future generations.
