Some musings on pain and painkillers.. ouch!

Posted by on Jan 22, 2014 in Mindfulness, Other Health, Slider, Uncategorized | 2 comments

There has been lots of stories in the news over the years about potential heart problems caused by long term use of painkillers such as ibuprofen and diclofenac (Voltarol) but the very well known link between these drugs and gastrointestinal bleeding doesn’t often get a mention.  See this old article on Ibuprofen on BBC website Doctor and medical columnist Thomas Stuttaford says in that article he thinks ibuprofen is a reasonable...

Resolutions and Creating an Amazing Year

Posted by on Dec 29, 2013 in Mindfulness, Other Health, Slider, Uncategorized | 0 comments

New moon and new year on January 1st this year. How many of you out there start with good intentions and resolutions and within a couple of weeks those grand plans are history? I’m just as guilty as everyone else – last year my aim was to do yoga at home at least twice a week – that lasted about a month and then life got in the way and it was the first thing to go. I wrote earlier about my experiences of doing the...

With Christmas approaching and the seemingly endless adverts on TV I know many folk are starting to worry about the costs of the festive season. I must confess to being a bit of a ‘Bah Humbug’ about it all.. our family certainly don’t go for expensive gifts and are likely to find practical or appropriate presents in charity shops and give things like home-made jams and cakes. Most years we go to our local supermarket just before they close on...

I finished doing the Artist’s Way this morning. For those of you that haven’t heard of it… Julia Cameron wrote the book many years ago, it is a course in discovering and recovering your creative self. It was designed to help artists and other creative folk who felt they were blocked in some way but don’t have to be particularly artistic to get a huge amount out of the book. I certainly wouldn’t say I’m arty but do love creating things in...

Chinese Medicine Blues and the ASA – video

Posted by on Apr 28, 2013 in Homeopathy, Other Health, Research, Slider, Uncategorized, Videos | 0 comments

A fellow homeopath sent me this wonderful musical video – Chinese Medicine Blues – from acupuncturist Peter Firebrace. This video is the title track of an upcoming album, due out May 2013, this song is a response to regulations imposed by the Advertising Standards Authority on what acupuncturists can say they treat. This was put out during Acupuncture Awareness Week in March 2013.     Whilst I completely accept we have to have some...
