Loss of taste and smell, with or without COVID-19

Olfactory sensory and gustatory both to function well depends on the nerve receptors, the G protein that are found in our mouth and nose and they are both connected to the brain function through neurological connections.

A healthy person has got more than 10.000 taste buds and about 100 million of receptors for the sense of smell.

  • Both the sense of smell and taste are connected to the nerve brain function and in particular to certain cranial nerves. And both need certain nutrients such as sodium and energy production to make up either the smell or the taste that we need.
  • So, lots of vitamins and minerals from our diet, including some sodium or salt.
  • The main sensory tastes are five: sour, sweet, salt, bitter and umami taste, which taste of meat. Any other taste is usually made of the combination of these five primary ones.
  • If we eat a lot of salty foods though, our taste of salty food will be more developed than any other taste and if we eat more of the sweet food than our sweet taste is more. The good news is that if you avoid too much of the salty foods or sweet food, the taste changes within two weeks, and hence you might be craving less of too much salt or too much sweet, this goes for meat or any of the primary tastes.
  • In a healthy person, any food that does not taste good will be avoided, this is part of our survival mechanism. I wonder if with allergies, many people avoid certain foods after they reacted once with them as part of the survival mechanism. This mechanism is the connection with the neurological part of our brain.
  • Usually with NAET method, that brain connection to a certain allergen is rebooted and hence a healthy food or food group can be reintroduced without the brain giving the signal to attack it through the immune system.
  • New olfactory receptors (neuron receptors) are replaced every month, and they are the only mature neurons receptors that would do this in our body. The smell receptors and neurological pathway are connected also to the tear glands, hence when there is a strong odor usually will lead to crying.
  • Did you know that women often have a higher sense of smell than men, especially during ovulation?
  • Did you know that smoking reduces the sense of smell strongly, and in long term smoking will damage the olfactory receptors permanently?
  • Age also reduces the sense of smell, from 65 years old onwards.
  • Did you know that zinc deficiency can lead also to loss of sense of smell and taste?
  • Head injury can reduce or destroy your sense of smell and taste and certain drugs, Parkinson disease, Alzheimer and anti-histamine, steroids, will all reduce the sense of smell.
  • Did you know that emotions are also connected to the sense of taste? Hence it is possible that when we crave certain foods, might be due to the state we are in. Recognizing that state of emotion can also stop craving and eating certain unhealthy foods.
  • Eating sweet foods evoke emotions of pleasure and bitter ones can cause expression of disgust even in newborn babies. It is because of this link that humans and animal learn to avoid certain foods to avoid having an upset digestive system.

Happy Healthy Holidays seasons

Holiday seasons are near and this year there are a lot of changes and a time when we need to be aware of others more than ever. Hope that you are all well in some way or another and that you are ready for a new year of hope, moving forward with awareness that life is unpredictable and we need to do what we want to do in life, to live a fulfilling life! Whatever that might be. Most of all be yourself, connect to your inner heart, and go with the flow of life!

Nutritionally, be aware of what you can do in your power to be healthy, have moderate meat, have a bit more sustainable oily fish or fish in general, plenty of vegetables and fruits and a varied diet.

If you do drink a bit more this year for some reason, be aware of drinking water in between alcohol, so that you do not dehydrate.

  • Eat a healthy fatty meal the next morning, such as eggs, mushrooms, avocadoes and salmon, with spinach; as that will get rid of the hungover, as well as pure water.
  • During the holidays take a good walk outside in fresh air; breathe! Do not wait till the new year to do the walking or running or exercise, do them even during the holidays!
  • Relax more by doing diaphragmatic breathing during the day; breathe by using your belly instead of your upper chest. While you are breathing let go of worries and concerns; Click here to listen and download a short meditation from me.
  • This year, instead of eating till your pants unbutton naturally, or your tracksuit stretches even more, eat just a small meal at the time, and use the leftover for the next day. There are so many recipes for leftover Christmas meals on the internet right now.
  • Use the following food to support your liver and get more nutrients: red cabbage (cooked), kale (slightly cooked), carrots (cooked), squash, pomegranate, orange juices (freshly squeezed), mandarins, fresh nuts, especially walnuts and almonds (no salt), hazelnuts, beetroot (cooked or raw), artichokes. Use turmeric, rosemary, thyme, oregano, basil, and all the fresh herbs that you know, include ginger, cinnamon and more fresh herbs and spices, if you can add onions (raw and cooked), garlic (raw and cooked). All the above helps with the immune system.
  • By avoiding anything that you might be allergic too, you reduce the inflammation, which usually might lower your immune system. Stress is part of it.
  • Make sure you have a deep sleep of at least 4 to 5 hours. Use magnesium before bedtime, about 1 hour, or melatonin to support that, or relaxation tapes. Avoid any stimulants, including chocolate after 2pm in the afternoon. Avoid eating too late at night, leave a space of at least 3 hours before your bedtime.

If you are allergic to some foods, and you have not seen me yet, then give NAET a try, as it has changed the life of many adults and children alike, from babies too. Click here to read more about it.

In order to move forward in this time and age, and let go of the shock of this year and fears, one of the best ways, is through craniosacral, combined with the NLP, which is amazing to get you rid of old emotions or trauma that are holding you back or stuck. Most conditional thoughts and beliefs are learned in childhood, and through some of the tools through NLP and CST, we visit the times, without going into the actual emotion or traumatic event. You are going to learn to use your own resources as an adult that you have, to give yourself another way of dealing with the same situation that you went through as a child! This will empower you, to deal with present and future events that would have caused the same old destructive emotions in the past, and to deal with them in a more resourceful positive way. Remember we can never change the past, but we can change the present time in dealing with the same situation in a different empowering way.

This is the unconscious mind, which drives your life, unknown to you, that you are aware of it or not!

NLP is also ideal to have a clear plan or goal towards what you need to do. click here to read more

I know that most people want this year to be over, and it is almost over; just notice what your learnings for this year have been and keep them in mind for next year. Keep moving forward, instead of going back to the past, and see what life will bring you!

Go with the Flow of Life!

Most of all, enjoy your Holiday seasons with your family even more this year, pay attention to your loved ones.

Best wishes and Light healing from me for this year ending and the new year coming 2021!

  2. Your goal might be loosing weight and stay healthy with a healthy choice of food, or starting your own business, or changing career or jobs, or Keeping healthy in order to prevent possible trigger of family disorders.

I have been working with people for about 30 years, and healing myself at the same time, I know how it feels to get stuck and unable to move. I worked with people for so long as my reason was to help people be themselves and get to do what they are meant to do, for themselves and others for the highest good of all. Only from the unconditional love of our heart. This programme is to help people get to the point of being themselves, without the restrictions of family, old beliefs that do not serve them any longer and negative stuck emotions that keeps propping up when they start moving forward.

Each session can be on line or in person, after receiving the signed agreement and payments for at least the first 2 months. Each session is about 1 or 1 and half hours max two and the cost for each session is

£ 111.00 x 8 for the first two months (once a week session for consecutive 8 weeks) (1 and half hours max). Once a week email to see where you are at with your own journey.

Payment via bank transfer or ask for a paypal invoice for the 8 sessions. Only when paid in advanced the 1st sessions start. This is to ensure your commitment to your own health journey.

After that, the payment needs to be in full for the 4 session of the last 4 months in advanced. If you decide to stop after two months is fine, and it is your choice with no guarantee of help after that, as you might need to start few sessions before going ahead. After 6 months if still you have not reached the goal that you set up, we can extend it for a further 6 months.

Light within us all

Then there is a once a month for 4 months session where we can check where you are at with your project and progress into your goal. If needed, we can extend the agreement for a year and it will be for 12 months.

The first session is about getting what you want to reach or your goal, looking at your diet and lifestyle, thinking mode and what you want to achieve. Recommendation for a healthy diet and exercise that it is suitable for you will be suggested. Possible supplements for integrating your health and balance your body physically also might be recommended.

It might be that at the end of the 4th session, your goal is different from what you thought it was, and it might be more appropriate for your positive new you. This will be discovered by you only.
