One-Move Fixes for Pain and Stress

De-Stress: Standing Forward Bend
If you feel anxious or stressed, a quick time-out can help. Try this simple yoga move. Stand straight, legs together. As you breathe in, raise your arms high over your head. Bend forward at your hips as you breathe out, keeping your upper body aligned. Grasp your calves or ankles. Breathe deeply and hold about a minute. Breathe in and slowly come back up, head and arms loose and relaxed, to standing.

Hand Pain: Fingertip Touch
Arthritis is the usual suspect if you have hand pain. Give this hardworking body part a break with this mini finger workout. Point your hand upward, fingers close together. Slowly touch your index finger to your thumb to make an “O.” Move your thumb on to the middle finger and do the same, and so on to your ring finger and pinkie. Smoothly repeat these motions several times with each hand.

Stiff Hips: Reclined Half Pigeon
Your hips can get stiff, especially if you sit for much of the day. This yoga pose offers them a well-deserved stretch. Lie on your back with knees bent. Cross one ankle over the opposite knee. Bring your legs toward your chest. Grab the bottom leg below the knee to hold the pose. For a more intense stretch, pull gently.

Suffer from tension headaches? It can help to build strength in your neck and shoulders, a Danish study found. Try this super-simple stretch to support the neck muscles that keep your head upright and ease stress in your head and neck. Bring your chin toward your throat in a gentle nod. Hold for 10 seconds, and repeat 10 times.

Lower Back Pain: Pelvic Tilt
A whopping 80% to 90% of Americans have back pain during their lifetimes. The main cause? Back strain. Try a pelvic tilt exercise. Lie on your back with your knees bent. Tighten your stomach muscles as you press the small of your back to the floor. Hold for 5 seconds, and then relax. Repeat several times. Try to build up to 10.

Menstrual Cramps: Cobra Pose
Menstrual cramps can bring pain to your stomach, lower back, pelvis, and upper legs. But some good stretches and moderate exercise can help. Try cobra, a classic yoga pose. Lie on your stomach, legs and feet together. Place your hands under your shoulders and lift your head and shoulders, straightening your arms. Breathe, and let your stomach expand on the inhale and soften on the exhale. Hold the pose for 30 to 60 seconds. Relax and repeat.

Shin Splints: Calf Raises
Just the name sounds painful, but it’s a common issue for runners and other athletes. It means pain along the inner edge of your shinbone. It can crop up after strenuous activity or when you start a new exercise routine. Find a set of stairs and try this. Stand on a step, weight on the hurt leg. Slowly raise your heel, then lower it past the edge of the step. Do three sets of 12.

Chi Detox Patches

We all carry toxins around in our body. They accumulate as we live: nasties like environmental poisons, chemicals we breathe in or ingest, waste products from foods all get stored in our body tissue. Chi Detox Patches are a unique, non-invasive way to help detox the whole body. Each patch contains a unique formula of highly purified powder extract of a blend of herbs and minerals used in Chinese Medicine. They target the reflex points under our feet, which have 62 acupuncture points.

Simply apply them at night. When you remove the patches in the morning, you can see the changes: their colour will show you that they have absorbed sweat from your feet over night.

Enjoy a free pair of Chi socks with every purchase – while stocks last!

Botanical Syrup the solution to a stubborn cough

Irish Botanica Botanical Syrup has helped many to find relief for the first time from a stubborn cough


Irish Botanica Botanical Syrup is a cough remedy that I told you about last year. Many of you who tried it found it amazing and got relief for the first time from a stubborn cough. But, unfortunately, the suppliers ran out of stock and left many of you disappointed that you couldn’t try it for yourself. Nobody could have predicted the demand. The good news is that it’s back in stock and your local health store should be able to order it in for you.

Botanical Syrup was developed by Medicinal Herbalist David Foley. Botanical Syrup contains herbs which can help ease all stubborn and difficult to shift coughs, clear congestion, decrease mucus, and relieve the symptoms of asthma, hay fever, and bronchitis. What’s great about the blend is that as well as the herbs to treat coughs it also contains Vitamin C, Liquorice and Ginseng which are included for their immune supporting properties and also their ability to relieve the effects of stress on the body.

It’s a fantastic combination of herbs which work well together including White Horehound which can decrease and thin the mucus in the bronchial tubes and lungs.

Mullein is used to help clear congestion and phlegm. Plantain eases sore throats, coughs, and bronchitis. It protects and strengthens the lining of the throat and lungs. Cinnamon is included for its mild antiseptic properties. Ginseng will help your body cope with stress and at the same time it will support immune function helping you to stay well. Aniseed helps clear mucus from the airways, and adds the flavour to the mix. Liquorice will help to reduce dryness and has an anti-spasmodic effect helping to ease a cough.

Last year I had amazing feedback from people all around the country. Many of you also told your friends and family about how effective it was. I would say that approx. 8 out of 10 people who tried it got relief from a stubborn cough. So I’m happy to remind you of it so you can see if it can help you too. Remember to check with your doctor if you’re on medication.

If you too have a stubborn cough then it might be worth your while trying this remedy, Botanical Syrup, it’s a fantastic Irish made product
