Carers Essence

We are pleased to have received Ian White’s latest flower essence offering, and just in time for the space we have all found ourselves in. When discussing the new Carers Essence, Ian has talked about how he would associate it with a mother of a young child or children; health workers or someone looking after their elderly or sick family members. However, in this current climate, there are also many parents who would normally be at work and are now having to stay home and look after their children. Many healthcare workers are finding themselves under increasing workloads with many overly concerned about their own safety as they help others.

During these times of emotional overwhelm and life changing circumstances, this essence supports the caregiver to feel their inner strength and resilience when they are feeling worn out and burdened by the responsibility of looking after another.The Carers Essence helps one to feel calm, optimistic, able to cope and also pay heed to and look after one’s own needs.

Vitamin C and Metabolic Syndrome

Vitamin C – Immune Function

A review article was published in the Journal, Nutrients which supports the use of dietary Vitamin C and supplementation. Vitamin C is an essential micro nutrient for humans and it is a powerful anti-oxidant. It contributes largely to immune defense. Vitamin C deficiency results in impaired immunity and higher susceptibility to infections. The study concludes that supplementation with vitamin C appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections. A CAM Practitioner can evaluate an individuals requirement for supplementation and create a suitable strategy to achieve optimal Vitamin C levels in the body.

Vitamin C capsules with bio-flavanoids are a popular holistic supplement recommended by CAM Practitioners.

The base chakra, the first of the major seven chakras of the body, located at the base of the spine, entertains our feelings of stability, security and is the most instinctual of our chakras. Here is our survival centre. It provides the link between our energetic system and the physical world and is our base for our life force energy. It helps us feel grounded and connected to our Mother Earth. Themes such as insecurity, exhaustion, worry, fear, anger and trauma are already prevalent amongst family and friends. There are plenty of gentle tools which respect the vital force and can help transform lower energies or negativity. Microflora Liquescence or IMS can help ground unstable energies, strengthen resolve when stress depletes us and enhance the environment for a stronger immune system. Zephorium’s Base Chakra Tonic is perfect for people who are feeling full of fear or finding it hard to stay focused. A healthy, vibrant and free-flowing base chakra empowers our Beings. Life is going to be different now. It is said that there’s no rainbow without a little rain.

Optimizing Glutathione Status

A review article published in the Journal, Nutrients, discusses multi-component dietary interventions specifically designed to enhance glutathione status. The study outlines an exciting opportunity for clinical medicine and future research.

Vitamin D – Muscle Strength

A recent study as published in ‘Clinical Interventions in Aging’ outlines the importance of Vitamin D status in preserving muscle function in the aging population. The study assessed the correlation between serum levels and muscle strength and performance among a cohort of older adults in community-dwelling.
