How to stay healthy in Spring

Now that the cold of winter is beginning to lessen, the days are getting longer and warmer Spring is definitely in the air. The unsettled and changing nature of Spring is fraught with health challenges, so we need to learn how to stay healthy in Spring.

During winter energy is deep within the earth and our body. In Chinese Medicine philosophy Winter relates to the Kidneys and the Water element. As the universal Qi begins to stir and rise and expand the Wood element is awoken and Spring starts.

Spring relates to the Wood element and all things that grow and expand in nature. In Chinese Medicine the Liver and Gall Bladder are governed by the wood element and can be challenged during this season.

acupuncture for sleep

If you are a sufferer of poor sleep you know how frustrating it can be to spend the night tossing and turning and not being able to sleep. If you have trouble going to sleep or you wake often during the night, acupuncture may be something which can help you return to a peaceful nights sleep.

According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare over 48% of Australians suffer from some sort of sleep problem. Furthermore over a quarter of children aged 12-13 and over half of 16-17 year olds get less than the recommended amount of sleep for their age. The cause of insomnia can be varied, from emotional stress, poor diet, over consumption of caffeine and alcohol or prescription medication. Research has certainly found link between insomnia and over all risk of chronic health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. Traditional medical treatments involve using sedatives, which are often addictive and do not address the cause of the problem.

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical technique that has been used for centuries to treat a variety of health conditions, including sleep disorders and in recent years, acupuncture has gained popularity in the Western world as an alternative and complementary therapy for insomnia and other sleep-related issues.

In this Shine Health blog post, we will explore the benefits of acupuncture for sleep, backed by research and clinical evidence.

Evidence based Remedial Massage benefits

At Shine Health Wellbeing Centre our practitioners see many people for remedial massage and we know there are remedial massage benefits, but how much evidence is there for its use as a therapeutic tool.

Breaking limiting beliefs with homoeopathy

  • homoeopathy

Have you ever wondered to yourself why do I keep attracting into my life the same type of partner, or why do I manifest this pattern of always giving my power away to others, or why am I always the one that is responsible for and looking after others? Why does this always happen to me?

Chances are very likely that you have set up this self-limiting pattern (whatever it is) from your early childhood experiences or modelled it on one of your parents. Sometimes it may even be an intergenerational pattern transmitted through to you from one of your ancestors. It is great if these patterns serve you in your life but if they don’t and if they keep you from manifesting and living the life you want – one by design, then you may need to reassess the way you go about your life and start doing things differently but the question is how? We have all tried to change something about ourselves at different times, sometimes by will and other times through different healing modalities and therapists….and often very little if anything changes and we get frustrated and disheartened and may just give up and try to live with ourselves as we are.

How to get over covid

  • Positive RAT

My brush with Covid and how I got over it

After 2 years plus of dodging the covid bullet, I finally succumbed at the end of April and got those 2 dreaded lines on the RAT. A fabulous birthday gift from my loving partner who also got covid few days before me. 

Where did we get it? Maybe on our Easter trip to Tassy, on the plane, at a family gathering, who knows? With over 10,000 daily cases in Victoria at the time of writing, Rona is definitely doing the rounds. It is or maybe is it inevitable that we all get it at some stage?

I wanted to share my experience so those of you who have not yet had it I can be confident that there is definitely support you can have while you are sick and prevent any lingering effects. The good thing is that as a Naturopath I have already treated many people with Covid and the feed back is that what I gave them really helped. Now that I also have personal experience of having covid there is really nothing to be worried about.

Regardless of vaccine status, everyone is susceptible to catching the virus. Some more than others and everyone will have a different experience based on their own immune strength and how much preventative and supportive measures they invested in before they get it.
