What’s in my shopping basket – Richard Collisson

What’s in my shopping basket ?

As I work in the Health Zone clinic, I do some of my weekly shopping in the shop. I always choose organic if I have the choice and Healthzone sells many organic products you can’t buy in a supermarket. Here are some of my favourites that I would recommend.

My kids eat tons of eggs and Healthzone sell the best free range organic eggs in Wimbledon at a competitive price with the supermarkets, but much better quality, flavour and bigger too. Although supermarkets sell free range organic eggs they are still mass produced and the yolks always look anaemic and pale to me, so whatever they are feeding the chickens can’t be very nutritious.

I like to cook curries and always use organic Coconut oil, Copura and Biona are the best value brands in Healthzone. Unlike polyunsaturated oils, such as almond oil, coconut oil being a saturated oil doesn’t get rancid and is good for massage and dry skin. Coconut oil is also the source of caprylic acid, a supplement sold for treating Candida.or thrush, but coconut oil works equally as well. 

My kids like to chew gum when we travel on holiday, but most conventional chewing gum, instead of sugar, contains the artificial sweetener aspartame which has been linked to brain tumours, and has been shown to accumulate in the brain. It’s build up in the nervous system does however cause involuntary twitchy eyelids in people who chew a lot of gum. Luckily Peppersmith mints & chewing gum do not contain aspartame or sugar so avoid this problem. Other items my kids like for travelling are dried mango and Panda Licorice bars.

Why try reiki ? by Carole Chandler

Why try reiki?
Why not?

by Carole Chandler – reiki master and energy balancing massage therapist

Do you need to understand how it works?
Is it okay to believe in something you don’t understand?
Few people understand how electricity works but many believe and trust that it will – and it does.
Few people understand how reiki works but many believe and trust that it will – and it does.

Why try reiki?
Why not?

Just consider the possibility of something which consistently and effectively brings you a peaceful mind, leading to clarity of thought.
Imagine the benefit of that!

Just consider the possibility of something which efficiently releases you from the torment of rushing through your day with muddled thinking and clouded judgement.
Imagine the benefit of that!

Just consider the possibility of something which may help you to find answers to those questions you have been asking.
Imagine the benefit of that!

Just consider the possibility of something which helps slow you down so you can return to harmonious relationships with other people as well as with yourself.
Imagine the benefit of that!

Brain Training at Health Zone Wimbledon by Carole Chandler

So where did this idea come from?

Well, a few years ago I was fortunate to have someone offer to teach me a method for solving the famous Rubik’s cube. To solve it not just once, nor just occasionally but every time. No maths was needed, which was just as well because I did not consider myself as skilled in that arena.

Once I was assured that the method was achievable by anyone I decided to give it a go.
After all what did I have to lose?

As soon as I started, I really enjoyed the fun of learning it.
The steps were easy to learn.
The steps made sense.
The steps were clear.

It was all new and I attribute my learning enjoyment mostly to the good fortune of having someone to sit beside me each step of the way. It was invaluable to have someone to guide me, to direct me, to explain what was required.

Then one day, one special day, one memorable day I did it. I experienced a feeling which I will never forget. I experienced a feeling which no words can adequately or accurately describe. I overflowed with positive emotions and yes, it felt good.
