Spring's Sudden Daylight Savings Changes Can Negatively Impact Health

Aug 27, 2018

Australians are getting excited about increasing daylight with the Spring Equinox approaching on 21st September. ‘Winter Blues’ or Seasonal Affective Disorder was first identified and studied in the 1980’s and is widely recognised as a Mental Disorder that begins in Winter and spontaneously improves in Spring. Hence many people perceive the imminent approach of Spring of psychological and physical benefit, which it is! However, increasing evidence shows that the days immediately after the clocks change in Spring can have negative repercussions on your health.

A paper in the March 2013 American Journal of Cardiology showed that moving the clocks forward in Spring by 1 hour caused a modest increase in Myocardial Infarction's for a few days. However, the greatest spike occurred on the Sunday after the clocks change on the Saturday night. Conversely, other data suggests that when the clocks go back in autumn and the population has 1 hour more sleep, that for a few days after the clocks change, public health improves!

In an article in the January 2001 edition of ‘Sleep Medicine’, Jason Varughese and Richard Allen studied 21 years of data from fatal car accidents in America. Their analysis demonstrated that during the Monday after the clocks change for daylight savings in Spring, there is an increase in car accidents.

So, what can you do to reduce the effects of this forced jet-lag on you? Here are a few simple things that you can do when Daylight Savings suddenly changes:

  • Take the Australian Bush Flower Essences ‘Sundew’ and ‘Jacaranda’. Ironically Jacaranda’s beautiful lilac flowers appear in the Spring as a sign of their benefit for the shift in our body clocks! Jacaranda can shift you from being scattered, changeable and dithering to being centered, quick-thinking and decisive. Sundew can move you from having a lack of focus and daydreaming to having more attention to detail and being focussed in the present.
  • Continue to go to bed at the usual ‘Winter Time’ for a few days after the clocks change in Spring, to let your sleep slowly adjust, especially if you have a heart condition.
  • Allow more time for travel to work in the morning immediately after the clocks go forward one hour in Spring, as the rest of the Australian population adjusts to 1 hour less sleep.

How Mercury Retrograde May Impact YOU in August 2018

Jul 26, 2018

The planet Mercury will appear to move backwards in the sky from 26th July to 19th August and will be in the Zodiac sign of Leo. As Mercury is the planet of communication, you may find that you suddenly misunderstand people and they misunderstand YOU! You may send texts to people who misinterpret what you have said, you may receive emails from friends/colleagues/family and you may get the wrong end of the stick.

Mercury is also the planet that rules electronics, SO BACK UP YOUR LAPTOP ASAP! Computers crashing, mobile phones freezing & data/images/videos disappearing are a common effect of Mercury moving backwards. If possible, avoid buying a new electronic item as it is likely to malfunction and cause you pain and financial misery!

You may find you dash about a lot during Mercury's retrograde period, leaving you to misplace (or even LOSE!) keys, wallet, glasses, phone, credit cards etc. Being in a hurry, combined with misunderstanding emails/texts means that you may in the wrong building at the wrong time for that SUPER IMPORTANT client meeting! You may show up at the airport /train station on the wrong day/wrong time or even discoverthat in your hurry to book your holiday, you booked it for 2019 instead of 2018!!

If you SLOW DOWN, read everything TWICE, ask friends/family/colleagues for clarification with any of their communication and if you back up your phone/laptop...you may manage to avoid unnecessary dramas in August!

How Fennel Can reduce Depression & Anxiety in Menopause

Jun 01, 2018

Along with hot flushes, low libido, poor memory and fatigue, some women who go through the Menopause also experience depression and anxiety. Although many women resort to synthetic hormones to deal with the debilitating symptoms of menopause, some are wary of the side effects on their future health.

Are There Herbal and Nutritional Alternatives to Help with the Emotional Ups and Downs of Menopause that have Clinical Evidence?

The herb fennel is traditionally used by Herbalists for gastrointestinal issues such as bloating, cramping and to help nursing Mothers produce more milk. However it is a phyto-oestrogen (i.e. plant-based oestrogen). An Iranian study published in the September 2017 edition of the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology evaluated the effect of the herb Fennel on anxiety and depression in post-menopausal women. 60 women were selected and split randomly into a placebo and a fennel group. The fennel group were given 100mg of fennel (in capsules with sunflower oil) 3 times daily, with the placebo group being given just the oil.

Did The Fennel Capsules Have any Effect on Menopausal Anxiety and Depression?

After 3 months only 49 women completed the trial. However those with Anxiety and Depression at the start of treatment did show improvements, based on the Zung Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS) and the Hospital and Anxiety Depression Scale (HADS). This is one of the first human clinical trials using fennel for anxiety and depression (there have been animal trials showing its anti-anxiety and anti-depressive effects). Although the numbers of participants in the trial was small, fennel may be of benefit as a natural alternative to the emotional roller-coaster experienced by some Menopausal women.

Can I get relief from my Menopausal Symptoms If I don’t wish to Use Pharmaceuticals?

Anita has a Masters Degree in Chemistry, as well as being a Naturopathic Physician. Hence you can be confident that you are dealing with someone who blends Science and Alternative Medicine in order to help improve your physical and emotional symptoms.

Anita has nearly 10 years experience in treating a variety of medical conditions including Menopause.

Foods to Boost your Immune System and Improve Gut Function

May 26, 2018

Why do I seem to catch every cold, flu or gastrointestinal bug more than other people?

Your immunity to bacteria or viruses starts in your bone marrow where lymphocytes are made.B cells produce antibodies and T cells kill off your own cells when they become infected. These two types of lymphocytes then move to the thymus (the gland between your lungs) and to the gut to mature. As we age the thymus shrinks, so this can affect our immunity. Caffeine, alcohol, refined sugar and stress can cause disturbances in our gut that may also affect immunity. You can’t get younger, but dietary changes may help boost your immunity.

So, there are foods I can eat that may boost my immunity?

Fermented foods such as kefir, kimchi, kombucha, sauerkraut and even yogurt can boost your immunity as they introduce beneficial microbes into the gut. So they benefit the immune system in a similar way to taking probiotics in that the ‘good bacteria’ fight the ‘bad bacteria’. But it’s actually a more complex process, with specific immune responses (lymphocyte, antibodies etc) all being boosted by the proteins in the fermented foods.

There are many publications that have recorded the benefits on the immune system of β glucans which are found in Shiitaki and Reishi mushrooms as well as seaweeds and Brewers Yeast.

A 2017 study on rats published in the Journal of Agricultural Sciences showed that the herb Echinacea purpurea (i.e. root) increased boosted certain immune cells and reduced inflammatory chemicals. Although most Herbalists (like ME!) know that combining the root and leaf/flowers of Echinacea is the best for boosting the immune system.

What about any practical things I can do to help my immune system?

Bacteria, viruses etc can be spread by indirect contact. Many germs can linger on an inanimate object, such as a table top, doorknob or bathroom tap. When you touch a doorknob handled by someone ill with the flu or a cold, for example, you can pick up the germs he or she left behind. If you then touch your eyes, mouth or nose before washing your hands, you may become infected. So, make sure you wash your hands with hot soapy water regularly.

Sunlight is anti-bacterial and it boosts vitamin D in your body which is good for the immune system. Even in Winter, if it is sunny, try and spend time in the sunlight with your skin exposed.

If you’ve been suffering with recurrent infections, or an auto-immune condition and it’s impacting your work and home life, email Anita on anita@multidimensionalhealing.co.uk or call her now on +447757 540 436 to book a Naturopathic consultation. If you can't see her in person in Balham or Tooting, Anita can see you via SKYPE/telephone for a 1 hr consult and your personally tailored liquids herbal medicines, nutritional supplements and flower essences can posted to your home or work address.

How The Fermented Soyabean Paste Natto can Reduce Strokes

May 17, 2018

The TakayamaStudy was a 16 year Japanese Trial involving 30,000 people over the age of 35. It looked at how diet and lifestyle factors can impact the health of the study participants, especially as regards chronic diseases. The Study found that the consumption of Natto, a Japanese fermented soyabean paste contains nattokinase, which has anti-clotting benefits.

High Natto consumption was seen to have a significant reduction in deaths from cardiovascular disease, total stroke, ischaemic stroke and ischaemic heart disease.

Mars is in poor condition in Libra for most of November, so you Fishes may not feel as motivated to consolidate your debts, do your Tax Return, or go through financial paperwork about joint holdings with a Spouse or business partner. But these issues won’t go away by procrastinating!

The New Moon on 18th November is in Scorpio in your 9th house, so around this time you may end up booking that holiday, or college course, or committing to a relocation overseas, or focussing on developing your spiritual side.

On 22nd November Neptune in your 2nd house moves direct after moving backwards since mid-June. You Fishes may get more compassionate, more artistic, more intuitive in the next few months, or MORE CONFUSED AND DELUSIONAL!

Spring Your Goals Into Reality with Flower Essences

Sep 11, 2017

it is now Spring in the Southern Hemisphere, and fertility is all around. Birds are singing, trees are blossoming and the clarity of the Spring sunlight is awakening everyone from their Winter hibernation.

Spring is the perfect time to get clear on your goals and to make them become a reality. And guess what? Help and support is there via Flower Essences to help you ‘Spring into Action!’.

Dr Edward Bach (pronounced ‘Batch’) is known as the Father of Flower Essences. A Bacteriologist, who had his research published in The Lancet, he was also a lover of nature and an intuitive. He loved nature and his country walks led to him being entranced by key flowers. He would meditate and get information from the flowers as to their benefits/properties.

Do you lack clarity as regards your Career? Do you have lots of ideas as to what you would like to do, but there isn’t a specific path that is leaping out at you? Wild Oat is the flower essence to give you clear career direction.

Are you a procrastinator? Good at writing your goals on paper, telling your friends/family what you wish to achieve, but tend to lack the drive and motivation to take practical steps? Wild Rose is great for getting you off the sofa and pounding the pavements to achieve your goals.

Do you feel overwhelmed when you think of all the steps you need to take to get to where you need to be in your Career/personal life? Does it feel too hard? Like there are too many obstacles? Too many details to sort out? Elm is a great flower essence for when you are feeling overwhelmed.

Sometimes we can be distracted from our ‘To Do List’ by our minds. We may lack focus, find our minds are daydreaming, not in the present moment. It is only by being focussed in the ‘Now’ that we can act on achieving our goals. Clematis is a great flower essence for bringing us back to the present moment and helping increase our focus.

Flower essences are a great tool for helping us to achieve our goals! They do not interact with pharmaceutical medicines, are good for kids as well as pregnant women.

Foods and Supplements to Boost Your Immune System in Winter

Jun 01, 2017

The shorter daylight hours and cold weather are depressing enough in Winter, without falling ill with coughs, colds and flu, kindly passed onto you via your work colleagues! We all now know the benefits of Zinc on the immune system, Vitamin C etc. But the article below references a few new foods and supplements that can reduce the severity of the cold/flu virus over Winter.

Elderberry

A clinical trial in Singapore in 2009 involving 64 patients with 3 or more flu-like symptoms (fever, headaches, muscle-aches etc) split participants into two groups. 32 patients received an Elderberry lozenge 4 times a day, the other 32 patients received a placebo lozenge. After 48 hrs 28% of patients in the Elderberry group had no flu symptoms and 60% had relief of some symptoms. In contrast, no patients showed improvements over 48 hrs in the placebo group.

Echinacea, Propolis and Vitamin C

A 2009 Israeli randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving 328 children aged 1-5yrs took place over the Winter months. The children were split into two groups, once receiving ‘Chizukit’ which is a syrup containing Echinacea, Propolis and Vitamin C, and one group receiving a placebo. After 12 weeks, the total number of illness was significantly lower in the Chizukit than the placebo group. The total number of illness days and duration of illness were also significantly lower in the Chizukit group.

Probiotic Bacteria

A 2005 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study used Lactobacillus gasseri, Bifidobacterium longum and B. bifidum over two Winter/Spring periods, with participants taking supplements for 3 months. Symptoms scores, duration of colds and days with fever were fewer in the group treated with the probiotics. Colds were found to be 2 days shorter in the Probiotic group. Key immune cells (specifically CD8+ and CD4+) were also higher in the probiotic group when analysed.

Ginger

A 2005 Chinese study on fresh and dried ginger on human upper and lower respiratory tracts infected with the human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV). This is a very common virus that gives symptoms similar to the common cold.

Fresh ginger was general more effective than dried ginger, but fresh ginger was very effective when given BEFORE INNOCULATION with the HRSV virus. It worked by preventing the virus from attaching and being internalised by the body. This shows fresh ginger is good to be taken preventatively during the cold and flu season.

Cloves

Funny how in the northern hemisphere, Cloves are used a lot in Christmas Baking? Obviously ancient people knew that cloves are great for fighting infection and boosting our immune system in the Winter months. In India Clive tea is taken by people with colds and flu due to its anti-microbial effects. Add it to soups and stews to help you reduce the intensity and severity of your cold or flu and add it to your cup of tea during the day.

A Clinical Trial Demonstrating The Benefits Of Garlic For Patients With Osteoarthritis Of The Knee

Jun 23, 2016

An Egyptian Study published in 2015 looked at the effects of garlic for patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. Fifteen patients undertook a rehabilitation program 3 times a week that included dietary changes, electrotherapy and flexibility exercises. Twenty-eight patients took the rehabilitation program PLUS a garlic capsule every morning with breakfast (the equivalent of 9 cloves of garlic).

After 8 weeks, the following results were seen:

  • Those taking garlic had significantly reduced knee pain, better quality of life and improvement in the strength of their thigh muscle.
  • Liquid accumulation in the knee had improved in the group taking garlic
  • When the synovial fluid (fluid in the knee joint that helps reduce friction and absorbs impact) was analysed in both groups, the selenium levels were higher in the group that took garlic
  • Inflammatory substances were reduced in the synovial fluid of patients who took garlic
These findings suggest that it may be beneficial to take garlic capsules if you have osteoarthritis of the knee.

What Opportunities will unfold for you in January 2016

Jan 01, 2016

Mercury turns retrograde from 5th-25th January. This will affect all travel, post, new contracts, technology and communications. And not in a good way! When Mercury is retrograde, people tend to feel rushed and hurried, and that is when mistakes happen. You arrive at the airport or train station at the wrong time and miss your train/plane. That important meeting you’ve been preparing for…you end up in the wrong building! The email you send to a friend, criticizing your brother…ends up in your brother’s in-box!

Double check EVERYTHING THAT YOU DO! Back up your laptop, re-read emails and texts before you send them and check recipients. Try to delay signing a new contract (house, job, financial) and don’t buy or set up any new technology during this time, as glitches may occur. Cancerians, Capricorns, Ariens and Librans may be more affected than other Zodiac signs.

Mars moves into Scorpio on 3rd January. You Scorpios may feel invigorated and determined to achieve your goals during January, SO MAKE THE MOST OF THIS!! Taureans may find their colleagues, spouses and competitors are feisty, tough and may run roughshod over you Bulls throughout January. But all Zodiac signs will feel more energised after January 3rd as prior to this date, Mars was in poor condition in Libra.

Sagittarians and Geminians may be affected by Venus (love) and Saturn (commitment, separation) between 5-15 January. Sagittarians are in the driving seat as you Centaurs may propose to a loved one, or you may decide that it is time to end a relationship as your lover is unreliable. Geminis are having to react to their lover’s decision; you may receive a proposal of a commitment, or be told that your loved one wants to end the relationship.

Jupiter in Virgo moves retrograde from 8th January-8th May affecting everyone, especially in late January when it hits a positive karmic point, the North Node. You may be given an opportunity to travel or move overseas, or pursue a further education course, get that book published, or follow your spiritual path. However, worrying about details, or people’s opinions may pull you away from your true calling. It’s time to REALLY LISTEN to your inner voice, and pursue what makes you happy!

The full moon on 24th January is in Leo, indicating some of you will receive recognition or even an award for your work, or service to others, or simply win a competition you have entered! If you haven’t entered a competition…MAYBE YOU SHOULD!!
