editor’s note

I have been wondering for a while, what on earth I could say here that might be relevant, that might make a difference, and have some meaning .. with not knowing where we will all be when you are reading this post-June (I am writing this mid-April). There are so many things I could say, but what I feel I need to say, is to take this opportunity to look at your place in the world differently, and preferably, not from a fear-based perspective. When I send out our eNewsletter each week, I call it Positive Medicine, because everything, I mean Every. Little. Thing. can be looked at from the negative or the positive. It is your choice which perspective or lens you want to look through and what you believe…

the great letting go

We’ve finally come to a major cross-road, the fork in the road where we have to choose the pathway forward. There is no going back. As normalcy and consensus reality break down, the way forward is unknown. Yet two paths at the fork are becoming clear. If we succumb to fear and doubt we will go down a path leading to mistrust, violence, and chaos. If we embrace the higher vibrations of love and inner peace, the path leads to cooperation, trust and freedom. What path will you take? What vibration will you hold and share? What world will you choose to step into? As many are coming to know, our thoughts and beliefs – conscious and unconscious – create our reality. We also attract what is a vibrational match. So what…

immune-supporting tips from traditional chinese medicine

For those times you can't run out to see your favourite doctor or practitioner there are still plenty of ways to reap the immune-supporting benefits of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM is a 5,000-year-old system that uses tools like acupuncture, acupressure, and cupping to heal the mind and body. Here are three ways you can use the time-tested medicine to support immunity naturally from the comfort of home: 1. Eat Warm Food and Drinks I cannot stress this enough - our digestive organs need warmth in order to properly function. Peristalsis, the physical movement of your food being pushed along the digestive tract in order to be absorbed, requires muscle and energy. The inside of your body is warm, and your muscles function best when they're warm, too (hence why we do warm-ups…

treatment of pain is a challenge in alzheimer’s disease

The treatment and management of pain in people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) can be a challenge due to problems in communication and uncommon symptoms of pain. Opioid painkillers are widely prescribed, but not without adverse effects. Finding the best course of treatment to alleviate pain in people with Alzheimer’s disease is a complex and multifaceted issue. One recent contribution to increasing our understanding of the big picture around AD, pain and painkillers is a PhD thesis by Researcher Aleksi Hamina, MSc (Pharm.), from the University of Eastern Finland. Using data from nationwide health care registers, he has studied the use of opioids and other painkillers in more than 70,000 people diagnosed with AD in Finland. “Treating pain in older adults is a massively important issue, which will become even more important in…

pets help stop elderly suicide

South Australian researchers have found that the presence of a dog, cat or even budgerigar can help prevent suicide among people over 60 years. The unexpected finding in research overseen by lecturer Dr Janette Young from the University of South Australia health sciences supports a push to introduce pet fostering into aged care homes. “Pets offer a counter to many older people’s sense of uselessness,” Dr Young said, after publishing the new findings in the journal Anthrozoos. “Animals need looking after which creates a sense of purpose for older people and they also promote social connections with other people.” When Dr Young and her colleagues asked thirty-five people aged 60-83 years how their pets influenced their health, one third of respondents reported that they felt ‘actively suicidal’ or ‘significantly traumatised’ but their…
