List of new foods on the market from the food show 2022 and Deep Blue Peaceful mindfulness meditation link

It was great to be back to the food show this year, taste new foods and welcome food from all over the world. Here are few of the things that I loved in some way, many more on the market so watch out for great food around.

  • One of my favorites was the dry crispy salmon skin. This is full of essential oil, great as a snack and full of protein too, a bit salty but it was the good salt and it is from the natural sea. (not suitable for vegetarian or vegans). The product comes from Chile and the people there were very friendly. I am not sure yet where they will be in UK but hopefully they will find a place to sell soon as fantastic idea, especially if you want your kids to get some oil and it is in a crisp form! Oven baked or dried, so all good. Produced in Chile www.williwawfoods.com if you are interested in buying and trying it out. Contains salmon and trout and salt from the sea. Contains also vitamin D, calcium and 20 grams of protein.
  • If you like me have a weakness for dark chocolate, well the darkest chocolate 100% it is quite bitter, but seems to be used for chocolate ceremonial, where you can get high with that. I definitely do not need chocolate for that, but I do love dark chocolate and I know that I can feel like I am drank if I have too much of it. Not allergic to it, it just gets into my brain. One of the companies was the www.selvabio.com  The chocolate is from the Ashaninka, Nomatsigenga and farmers located in Satipo in the central rainforest of Peru. Organic, hand made, Raw Cacao and Ecofriendly.
  • Healthy teas from the Hortus Medicus www.thehortusmedicus.com . They sell a variety of teas.
  • Nutra Teas also sell interesting and healthy teas such as liver support with artichokes and more, some of the teas that I would like to have. NutraTea www.nutratea.co.uk
  • Fromm Clearspring, a new tea with a blend of green tea with roasted brown rice and matcha, again new on the market and unusual teas.
  • Unrefined bars, a selection of snack with nuts, oats and all natural ingredients form www.unrefinedbars.co.uk
  • One of the most curious and great drink that hopefully is available in bars and pub for healthy non-alcoholic drinks is Sentia GABA Spirit. Now for anyone that does not know GABA is an essential nutrient for the health of the brain. Finally someone that is combining socializing with health. Should hopefully be in bars and pubs soon. Here is the website for possible tasting some if you need to. www.sentiaspirits.com apparently you can make great non-alcoholic drink with it.
  • For baby’s botanical babies, all creams and skin products, organic for babies from Drbotanicals www.drbotanicals.com
  • For Eczema, dermatitis and Psoriasis creams from Mahi naturals www.hopes-relief.com or www.mahinaturals.com

Also, for inner peace and peaceful Light just think of a deep Blue peaceful Light and think of the Tibetan Mountains or any other Mountain that you have nearby. Here is a mindfulness meditation for your own inner peace with the frequency of the Deep Blue Peaceful Mountain click here to listen and enjoy. This is a gift from me and whoever knows how I work, from the beautiful healing Lights.

Two herbs for your intestinal tract

Basil benefit and history

You think that Basil came from Italy, has it been used a lot there, or at least I thought it did, but no. Basil originated from India, believe it or not. It finds his way to Italy at some point, after Greek. Basil in Greek mean Royal and it is a very special and healing herb. In China this herb is used for muscle stomach spasms, kidney problems, and poor circulation. Basil has also a protective component as an anti-oxidant. It has an antibacterial ad antiworm property as well. Hence is really good for the health of the intestinal tract in general. As an anti-bacterial, basil can be used by itself fresh in salads, or with bruschetta (toasted bread with tomatoes, olive oil and garlic). In pesto with olive oil and garlic, freshly made. Some people will also use it in water and drinks to give a nice taste!

Holy Basil copyright

Fresh Basil is the best to use, you can plant it, even though I never manage to keep it for long for some reason, or you can buy it in a pot, and that does not last long. My parents Basil seem to grow by itself, in the glorious sunshine. Basil also has got a lot of chlorophyll, like any other green leafy plant, which gives that energy from the sunshine!

Dill is another nice herb to use and have in your kitchen (that includes rosemary, thyme and more)

Dill is of the same family herbs of carrots, fennels, celery and parsley. Again, this herbs traditionally was used to calm the stomach and intestinal tract as well as have a good night sleep. This herb has got a very nice sweet taste. Dill comes originally from Western Africa and the Mediterranean region. Both Basil and Dill have been used in the ancient Egyptians. Dill like Basil and many culinary herbs, has many healings property. Soldiers, in the ancient times, would put burned dill seeds on their wounds to heal. Energetically, this herb was used for a lot of other things too, to protect the heart and more!

dill and seeds

The health benefit of dill as I mentioned above are carminative of the intestinal tract spasm and to reduce flatulence. Dill also has shown antioxidative properties, as well as anti-microbial properties. It promotes detoxification of the liver from chemical toxins, it does this by activating the anti-oxidant enzyme glutathione-S-transferase, a powerful antioxidant enzyme that transform powerful chemical toxins into less toxic molecules.

Using the combination of Dill and Basil fresh herbs into your salads, or making a pesto and adding garlic and dill into that, would make a great combination for the anti-microbial, intestinal tract reducing spams, in case of a gastro-enteritis and soothing of the intestinal tract. If used often, it will be a protective combination for your intestinal tract and your own health in general.

Mindfulness living exercises– Mindfulness eating, mindfulness meditation for stress reduction, nutrition, craniosacral therapy/healing, NLP:

healing rainbow colours

Mindfulness living to reduce deal with what is going on in your life and start being present at all times in your life, no matter what is going on.

How I work with my practice is starting from where ever you need to start with, in your individual life.

From Nutritional Therapy lessons, 25 years ago to now, I have learned that we are dealing with different things in life, and the way we deal with that, either from eating food that we might react or be allergic to, to pain, and attracting drama and more, all depends not only from the physical part, but also from our emotions and feelings.

The “Step-by-Step back to yourself”, is getting to understanding where you are at this moment as an individual and acknowledging and understanding the process and yourself, so that you can move on in life, in where ever you are.

My journey into my own healing started when I left Italy, where I thought I could not grow much more that I could otherwise, into who I wanted to be, as there was no space for the healing of the individual. I knew by take that big step, that I would find what I really wanted to do in life, while healing myself as well.

I am grateful about my upbringing, which was in the countryside. That taught me how to nourish yourself really well, and looking after your body, with the fruits and vegetables from my parent’s garden. When I first came to London, though, my eating well, went out of the window for a while, and I felt that my body, had more pain and stress, than now. After few years, I ended up, in some way, at university to do Nutritional Therapy, I knew it was the right thing for me. By then I already was working as a sport massage therapist in leisure centers, and I managed to work and study at the same time.

My passion to guide people into their own healing has taking me always further that I knew it would. By learning NAET 15 years ago, to deal with allergic reaction or overreaction to food and the environment, I know I was part of changing the life of many people and children as well. With learning craniosacral therapy 11 years ago and ending up doing healing as well, that was an amazing way of healing babies’ trauma, from the start of their life!

What a gift that can be given to a baby and a mother is now-days, something that is available to everyone!

Our new generation of today, have so many more resources that our parents and grand-parents never had.

Let’s use it and get back to ourselves whatever you need to heal, get started, get going!

9 – Attitudes of Mindfulness Meditation – Jon Kabat-Zinn

1) Non-Judgment: impartial witnessing, observing your evaluations and categorizations. Noticing the automatic habit of labelling our experience as good, bad or neutral. Habit of judging locks us into an automatic reaction without being aware of them, where they do not have any objective basis. Once we are aware of out judging, then we can choose actions and behaviours more consciously, rather than automatically reacting to the situations in our environment. This principle is useful as we start to engage in a new mindfulness practice that our mind may judge as boring or a waste of time.

2) Patience: allowing things to unfold in their time, bringing patience to ourselves and others.  This is an understanding that sometimes things must unfold in their own time. This principle reminds us to be patient with ourselves as our mind is stretched in new ways. Patience is a helpful quality to invoke when the mind is agitated. To be patient, is to be open to each moment as it unfolds knowing that like the butterfly, that some things can only unfold in their own time. So, when starting out your mindfulness practice or anything else please stick through whatever takes place trusting that some things will make more sense after you have practiced them for a while.

3) Beginner’s Mind: Willing to see things as if for the first time.  We let our beliefs about a situation prevent us from seeing things as they really are. No moment is the same as any other. Beginner’s mind allows us to be receptive to new possibilities and prevents us from getting stuck in our mind, which often thinks it knows more than it actually does. Try to cultivate your own beginner’s mind as an experiment. The next time you see someone familiar, notice if you are seeing the person with fresh eyes or through the lens of your beliefs about that person. When you are out walking, see if you are noticing things, you might have overlooked before. Developing beginner’s mind opens you to possibilities in life you may be missing out on, because you are viewing everything through the lens shaped by past experiences, that is not aware of what else there is to learn and explore.

4) Trust: Developing trust in your feelings and yourself is an integral part of the mindfulness practice. The act of trusting yourself and your basic wisdom, is an important aspect of the mindfulness training.  If you are feeling strongly about something, it is important to attend to that, rather than ignore it because an outside authority is telling you to do so. Mindfulness is an objective process of inquiry and accepting what people of ‘authority’ tell you without questioning the validity of it for yourself is against the basic premise of mindfulness. It is important to stay open and learn from other sources but ultimately you have to live your life and make your choices that feel right to you. It is almost easier to trust external authorities to tell us how to live our lives. Mindfulness involves practicing trusting your own feelings and that doesn’t mean you react based upon all your feelings but that you explore any feelings that show up fully to see what they are telling you about a situation and then you trust yourself to come up with the right action.

5) Non-striving: non-goal oriented, remaining unattached to outcome or achievement. Even though everyone undertaking mindfulness practice has some goals intentions while they are taking their training, at the time of mindfulness practice itself, simply do the practice without any expectations. When you set expectations, such as feeling more relaxed, you are introducing conditions that don’t allow you to be fully present with what is, because you are trying to change the present to be something else. If you are trying to change the present then you are not being with what is, which is what the mindfulness training is. Remember to allow anything and everything that you experience from moment to moment to be there, because it already is. If you are tensed, just pay attention to the tension. If you are criticizing yourself, just observe the activity of the judging mind. Non-striving may be the most difficult of all the principles because in our culture we are taught to be goal-oriented and to be constantly doing something in order to reach our goals. In mindfulness you will reach your goals by not trying to change the present but by being present to whatever arises, and in that way, you will find that the goals are ultimately reached. This is perhaps something you will need to experience for yourself to really understand.

6) Acceptance: open to seeing and acknowledging things as they are. It does not mean approval or resignation. Acceptance is the willingness to see things as they really are. Acceptance does not mean that you have to be satisfied with the way things are or that you don’t do anything to change what you don’t like. When you have the ability to see things as they are you free up energy to take the appropriate actions, instead of working with a mind that is clouded by denial, prejudices, fears, and self-judgments.

7. Letting go: non-attachment and the ability to put aside the tendency to elevate some aspects of our experience and to reject others. Letting go is a way of letting things be, of accepting things as they are. When you observe your mind grasping or pushing away, you can remind yourself to let go of the impulse to grasp or push away and see what happens.

8. Gratitude: being thankful for the little things in life, can be very rewarding. Not taking our body for granted is also very rewarding for ourselves. Being thankful for what works in our body and mind is rewarding. Give thanks to our own body, inside and outside, e.g., gives thanks to our legs, our heart, our liver, our spleen, etc. Being thankful for the people who we have in our lives, that supports us, being thankful for our food, the earth that supply our food, and more.

9. Generosity: give to others, your time, or things that they need. Give attention to others, not for a reward but for the only reason that you would like to help others, that you would like to give to others, to make them feel better.

The 9 attitudes to embrace (By Jon Kabat-Zinn) while doing your mindfulness meditation classes or practices are: 1. Beginner’s mind. 2. Patience. 3. Letting go 4. Non-judgemental 5. Generosity 6. Gratitude 7. Trust 8. Non-striving (non-doing) 9. Acceptance

Definition of mindfulness meditation by JKZ is “awareness that arises when we pay attention, on purpose, non-judgmentally’ and the idea of ‘waking up from automatic pilot’.

Without awareness of our body, feelings and emotions, will be more difficult to understand where we are at, at any given moment. Embodiment has a different meaning for everybody.

I would say that embodiment is being and feeling at home in our body. Every little sensation, feeling, of any kind is part of the embodiment state. Everything that we feel, hear, see, notice and know, is because of our body, and when we are at home that is an embodiment of ourselves.

We can also be an embodiment of kindness, or compassion, or an embodiment of love, as described by somebody else. Our embodiment can be our personal journey in life, of what we would value most. Whatever we would like to be and become can be our most authentic embodiment. As I mentioned before, we can be an embodiment of love, compassion, gentleness, creativity, etc. and that is also being authentic to ourselves.

According to Jon Kabat Zinn description is living our life authentically, realistically, like it matters. Living your truth for now, as the truth can change in time at any moment. Being embody of who we are at this moment, being authentic with our way of thinking, and being at each particular time and moment. Being present as you are, and authentic to being yourself.

New Year resolution for your health “Step by Step back to yourself” Freedom for yourself

The New Year 2022 is going even further in getting back to yourself. One of the way to do that is healing the old or let go of the old beliefs and emotions and feelings that have kept you prisoner to the mercy of other people wishes and beliefs.

Healing yourself step by step, is the key to know yourself better, without the trauma, drama and stagnant emotions that obscures your own personality and way of being. It takes time to do that, and with my professional experience from craniosacral therapy as support and healing of things that you cannot do by yourself, and mindfulness meditation will get you free and ready for the new era of being yourself, with positive attitude and believing more in yourself and your well being.

What Mindfulness will give you is tools to deal with life at any present moment. It brings you “step by step back to yourself”. This can be combined with craniosacral therapy and NLP tools in private sessions to heal yourself at a deeper level with the support of a professional therapist. Click here to see other therapies available from this Therapist. Mindfulness meditation is for being at the present moment and being aware of where you are at with yourself and others. Each person will experience mindfulness meditations in different ways, and they are all valid experiences.

The 9 attitudes to embrace (By Jon Kabat-Zinn) while doing your mindfulness meditation classes or practices are: 1. Beginner’s mind. 2. Patience. 3. Letting go 4. Non-judgemental 5. Generosity 6. Gratitude 7. Trust 8. Non-striving (non-doing) 9. Acceptance

Definition of mindfulness meditation by JKZ is “awareness that arises when we pay attention, on purpose, non-judgmentally’ and the idea of ‘waking up from automatic pilot’.

Without awareness of our body, feelings and emotions, will be more difficult to understand where we are at, at any given moment. Embodiment has a different meaning for everybody.

I would say that embodiment is being and feeling at home in our body. Every little sensation, feeling, of any kind is part of the embodiment state. Everything that we feel, hear, see, notice and know, is because of our body, and when we are at home that is an embodiment of ourselves.

We can also be an embodiment of kindness, or compassion, or an embodiment of love, as described by somebody else. Our embodiment can be our personal journey in life, of what we would value most. Whatever we would like to be and become can be our most authentic embodiment. As I mention before, we can be an embodiment of love, compassion, gentleness, creativity, etc. and that is also being authentic to ourselves.

According to Jon Kabat Zinn description is living our life authentically, realistically, like it matters. Living your truth for now, as the truth can change in time at any moment. Being embody of who we are at this moment, being authentic with our way of thinking, and being at each particular time and moment. Being present as you are, and authentic to being yourself.

This winter we are fighting more colds and flu viruses! what can you do?

This winter we are fighting way more colds and flus. There reason for that, is last winter we were all self-isolating and not mixing up at all. So all the colds and viruses that were not related to COVID 19, this winter are back!

As your immune system did not have any challenges last year, well, guess what, this year has been challenged a lot, so you get one cold after another, as your immune system is now fighting things that is meant to fight!

Children when they start nursery, as you know if you have children, will start getting ill every week, as their immune system start to build up a resistance of soldiers to fight the same colds and viruses over and over again. This is called inner immunity, when you fight something twice, usually the immune system will keep a record of that virus in its memory, so that next time it encounters it, it will know what to do.

Did you know that some inland indigenous tribe can die of the simple cold? That is because their immune system has never encountered it. Now for the elderly and vulnerable people and children, that immunity does not work well, so they need as much help as they can, they are like the indigenous people who have never encountered the cold virus. That is because their immune system does not work as well. Hence all the precaution for the always new variant of the COVID 19, till at least there is a better solution that we have now.

For any other person to strengthen your immunity, or help your immune system to fight well, the solutions is a healthy lifestyle, with extra supplement when needed and nutritious food to get the vitamins and minerals, proteins and fats, as well as carbohydrates, to support your immune system in their fight. It is like feeding your soldier and nourishing them with food and warmth.

In times of illness, also the soul and mind needs that support, before, during and after. Craniosacral therapy resets the body system into balance, by centering your body and mind back to health and allow the breath of life and the energy to run through your body after the illness.
