Treating the root cause
If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, thyroiditis, multiple sclerosis or ulcerative colitis then you are likely to have heard the term autoimmune disorder.
Autoimmune conditions occur when the immune system fails to recognise self-antigens and mounts a misguided attack upon them. The common dysfunction is that the body starts to attack itself and general symptoms include exhaustion, muscle aches and low temperature.
Maharishi Ayurveda identifies the lack of awareness of the Self as the root cause of all disease. Pragyaparadh...

Stress doesn't just make a person feel older. In a very real sense, it can speed up aging.
- The Washington post conducted a study in 2004 in which scientists identified the first direct link between stress and aging. Chronic stress appears to hasten the shriveling of the tips of the bundles of genes inside cells, which shortens their life span and speeds the body's deterioration (according to a study involving mothers caring for chronically ill children).
- Also a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that stress can add years to the age of individual immune system cells. Researchers che...

Recently, when talking with a colleague I found myself thinking how lucky we are to have access to the simple and profound knowledge of Ayurveda to guide our food choices.
Ayurveda explains that the fresher and closest to nature the food is, the more intelligence it contains. Plants, like humans, need to protect themselves against disease creating pathogens. They produce special chemicals for that purpose. When consumed in the form of a whole food, we digest the intelligence, thus absorbing the plant’s ability to fight off ill-health.

As the longer days of summer offer options for more play and longer days, are you feeling the need for a summer tonic to help support energy and remove fatigue?
Summer is the time where heat increases both outside and within us. To maintain balance we naturally lean towards foods that help to cool us down like sweet fruits and fresh crisp salads. I am particularly enjoying lettuce leaves straight from our garden with fresh parsley or basil. I’m also enjoying crisp sweet apples and pears and juicy nectarines. I’m in heaven! What foods are you naturally drawn to at the moment?
As food is considered to be a medicine in Ayurveda the first way to increase energy...

Partnering with people as they restore balance is so inspiring.. Today I’d like to share a recent clients journey with you.
Anita came to me in quite some discomfort. For 18 months she had been experiencing acid reflux where the junction between the stomach and the esophagus does not close properly. This allows the stomach contents to come back up into the oesophagus causing a burning chest pain or heartburn that was with her most of the time.
Nothing seemed to work to stem the tide of the discomfort so her brother suggested she see if Ayurveda could help. Ayurveda has a very complete understandi...

When did you last take a holiday to a place where relaxation and enjoying nature in all her beauty, be it sun, rain or wind is the norm; when after only a few hours of arriving it seems like you have been there for a day or so…
For me, it has been too long… What about you?
As I sit in the shade of a tall coconut tree I am grateful that my twin sister Louise wished to celebrate our birthday this way. On reflection I would not have prioritised to come here otherwise and would have missed a beautiful and rejuvenative expereinced in Fiji at Paradise Cove in the Naukacuvu Islands. Does this sound familiar for you too?
