What is Naturopathy?

mind, body, spirit, soul and you - balance or wellbeing concept - handwriting on colorful sticky notes against grained wood

Naturopathy is a complementary health profession with a focus on holistically treating you as an individual and addressing your health concerns. Sam will take your detailed case history and work towards identifying the underlying cause(s) of your ill health, rather than just treating your symptoms. One of the major philosophies of Naturopathic health care is that the body has an innate ability to heal itself.

This is great! Fridge envy 😏 all the colours are wonderfully healthy. I really do appreciate the meld of science & spirituality that you get with #foodandspiritI had this inspirational burst this morning after going grocery shopping last night to look at the different colors of foods I had in my kitchen. What better way than to use my refrigerator to ‘see’ my spectrum! I reconfigured my refrigerator in about 30 minutes to put in all of the fresh foods to do an inventory (I wouldn’t normally put some of these foods in the fridge).

White foods at the top which I connect to cleansing, blue-purple foods for the brain (fortunately I had several of these, as they are hard to come by), green foods for heart health, yellow-orange for their digestive and hormone effects, red for reducing inflammation, and brown at the bottom for grounding, fiber, and elimination.

The colors align to functions and placement in the body, from crown to down. A creative activity with food!

It's been a super busy week but this is the whiteboard I mentioned we try & remember to record our weekly veggies on. Complete with kid humour 🙂!

Since we’re aiming for variety - multi coloured veg (ie red green yellow capsicums and orange and purple carrot count as separate items as do fresh herbs). Medicinal spices like cinnamon and turmeric also count.

Preparation this week was mainly steamed or stir fried and a soup.

How was your veggie intake this week? Are you eating more than you think? Is there something you can add this week? Something new? Go on! 🥦 😁

Great post from Heather @Nourish ❤️ reasonates on so many levelsSome days I wake up and wonder “Where has that woman that found delight in the little things gone? Is she still in there or has she simply left the building?” While I say I wake some days and wonder, sometimes there are times I wonder EVERY DAY. That is usually followed by self-flagellation and interrogation on how I got there in the first place.
.
.
Let’s be honest: life isn’t rosy all the time. We all have shit to sift through, deal with and get over. It takes up energy and space and can cloud the way we look at the world. And, I swear, the everyday hormonal fluctuations in perimenopause amplify it. As do the pressures of owning a business, having a family and generally…being a grown up. And sometimes it’s the tiniest things that get stuck in the cycle.
.
.
But here’s the thing: finding delight is as simple as slowing down and looking for it. Seriously.
.
.
Last night as I was having a weary-is-me moment, I decided to pop on one of my favourite podcasts, #thisamericanlife. It was episode 692: The Show of Delights, focused on counterprogramming the current dark and combative times we find ourselves in by sharing stories about delight. Within minutes, I found myself smiling, laughing and finding delight in others’ stories—travelling on an airplane with a tomato seedling, a five year old’s first experience riding a bus to school, a mother’s life of delight she discovers after the painful experience of losing her husband.
.
.
By the end of the podcast, I couldn’t even remember having my moment. Because you know what? Sharing delight brings delight! I began thinking about all the small things that bring me delight and joy—the magnificent full moon last week, my youngest pup’s crazy antics, the family of magpies that visit me daily, my husband’s cheeky humour, my favourite little local munchkins’ smiles as they came to deliver warm, hand-picked tomatoes from their garden. All those things. Not that one little thing that had me weary that I can’t even remember.
.
.
As for finding that woman who delights in things…she’s still here. She never left. Sometimes she just needs to raise her head, open her eyes, be present and delight in the world around her.

Think this might be my new favourite tea: organic honey bush, cinnamon & chamomile. Caffeine free, redolent of honey undertones but not sweet, rich with the slightly spicy & warming tannin flavour from the cinnamon and lifts a little with floral of the chamomile 💕 ☕️ ... See MoreSee Less
