Oil Pulling – a health-enhancing practice

2021-10-26T15:18:09+00:00By |Natural Therapies|

Oil pulling is a simple and relatively inexpensive treatment that effectively combats yucky bacteria lurking in the mouth and simultaneously strengthens gums and whitens teeth. It is reputed to resolve a wide array of health imbalances and ailments – without side effects. Dr Bruce Fife describes how, for example, the therapy is used to address nasal sinus problems. According to Fife, ‘all disease starts in the mouth’, since mouths reflect the status of internal health. He postulates that oil pulling could therefore be the solution for a wide range of conditions.

The Ageing Sensitivity Skin

Skin sensitivity is not uncommon as one ages – this is a bit of an anomaly, since at a sensory level skin sensitivity may decline with age. So not only do ageing folk sometimes experience a diminished sense of touch, i.e. feel less, we also tend to become hypersensitive to external stimuli (chemicals in your case), or other environmental aggressors. In addition, the skin starts to thin as the epidermal barrier decreases, due to the ageing process and hormonal changes.

Argan oil is one of the rarest and most expensive fixed oils in the world yet it is the current buzz ingredient in the skin care world, thanks to its incredible moisturising and cell-rejuvenating properties. Argan oil is ideal for products such as hand creams, body balms and lotions, and regenerative creams for around the eyes. Argan is not greasy and is even safe for baby skin, and for those with sensitive skin. It can be used in any cosmetic product as an active principle or as a carrier in the oily phase, without any proportion limit.

From Here to Maternity – an introduction to aromatic pregnancy

2021-07-21T19:41:35+00:00By |Pregnancy and Child Birth|

Since my field of special interest is aromatic medicine, and I’ve assisted many patients in using essential oils appropriately during their pregnancy, I have a particular love for the use of natural aromatics in maternity care – before, during and after birth – preferably in the form of organic essential oils. An aromatherapeutic pregnancy and birth is an adventure of great delight in which as many women as possible should luxuriate.
