Am I Susceptible to Chemicals?

Lots of household chemicals are harmful to your health
Everyone is susceptible to chemicals. Some people are affected by chemicals more than others. These people often have a lower immune system than others. People with a lower immune system include people who suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ME, CFIDS, Glandular Fever, repeated infections, allergies and chronic diseases.

Let's make a list of the places people work or jobs people do that can make them more susceptible to chemicals. I cannot list all of them so would be happy if you wanted to add to them.

.stay at home Mums  & Dads
.school children
.petrol station attendants
.people who work at airports
.people who work in clothes shops
.taxi drivers
.elderly people in nursing homes
.laboratory workers

Everyday Products containing chemicals
Most people use some form of chemical in their daily life without even realizing it. Some of these products are:
deodorants, shampoos and conditioner, makeup, dishwashing detergent, laundry detergent, air fresheners, toilet paper, floor cleaners, insect spray, garden sprays, polish for cars, petrol, lawn mower fuel, computer printers, ballpoint pens, textas, whiteboard markers.

As you can see, this is only a small list of things used in the home. There are chemicals you are subjected to whilst traveling in trains, cars and planes. Even when walking we breathe in the fumes of the cars that pass by. In the our place of work - the office or factory there are a miriad more chemicals we either touch or breathe in.

Everyday Products
Many of our everyday products are made from chemicals too. These include polyester pillows, sponge mattresses, doona fillers, carpets, plastic utensils used in the kitchen and even your comfy lounge chairs.

Our Cars are Made of Chemicals Too
Your car is also full of chemicals from the glue that hold lots of it together to the vinyl seat covers or the synthetic removable covers over the seats to the sponge rubber inside the seats. And don't forget the plastic dashboard, the lubricants containing chemicals and the all important petrol or gas your engine runs on.

If you are affected by chemicals, try to minimise them in your life.

Affirmations, Words and Feelings


Words are Very Important

Words can make or break our day. They can make us feel happy, sad, rejected or proud.
Words can bring hope, words can cause failure. Words can make you show the other person that you can do it and you are not a failure, or they can last with you for 80 years believing that you are no good because you were told so when you were a child.


Words can build you up with promises. In years gone by, words and a handshake were the same as your signature on a document today. Today we bandy words about, often for our own benefit. Empty promises hurt the receiver of the promise and take away the credibility of the person making the promise. People begin to see them in a different light when promises are broken again and again.

Politicians are great users of words for their own or their party's ends. They are also often great breakers of promises. Teachers are influential users of words, teaching children how to use them. The media has a great influence on the words used in our society. Parents are our first teacher of words either giving a child self esteem or robbing them of it with their words.

Doctors, nurses, naturopaths and therapists can bring hope, encouragement, and a belief in yourself. They can also take away hope, withhold encouragement and believe in their power instead of yours.

Think about your words and the powerful effect they have on others.


Louise Hay has made affirmations popular. Affirmations are a group of words you use to tell yourself repeatedly that you can achieve and change your way of thinking. Affirmations have great power.

I am careful about the words I use when talking to others.
I have positive thoughts and use positive words.
I always use positive words to make myself and others feel good.

Have a great day!

The Thyroid Summit

There has been a great worldwide summit on Thyroid health this week. Over 30 hours of broadcasts. The information is so very important because so many of us have a low thyroid condition causing much of our ill health. Even people who seem healthy may still have a low thyroid problem.

A low thyroid may be the cause of many heart problems. It is tied in with our sex drive and our adrenal system, that part of us that gives the extra oomf when there is a major crisis in our lives.

This summit has been given mostly by doctors who have treated thousands and thousands of over 30 to 40 years. The information is not about some new found pharmaceutical but is tried and tested natural methods of good, honest, practical help.

If you have missed out on being part of the summit and would still like to get access to this important information, click on this link
as it is available to purchase after the summit. This way you will be able to take your time to digest all this wonderful information that could change your life.

There is most important information here also that can help many sufferers of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), CFIFS, ME and Fibromyalgia (FMS) and allergies.

Salt Toothpaste



Make your own Tooth Cleaners from Natural Ingredients

You can use just the powder of Bi-carbonate of Soda to clean your teeth. Bi-carbonate of soda is good for getting rid of smells, cleaning and refreshing. Dip your damp toothbrush in bi-carb and scrub your teeth with it.

Salt can be used the same way. Use table salt or sea salt. The salt can also be mixed with bi-carb soda to clean and refresh your teeth. Xylitol is a natural sweetener made from corn or birch trees. It has been proven to be beneficial to getting rid of bacteria in the mouth. Xylitol is found in many chewing gums to rid the bacteria from the mouth and prevent cavities. Xylitol can be mixed with the salt and/or bi-carbonate of soda to make a better tasting cleanser for your mouth and teeth.

7 Questions about Flower Essences

Roses are very powerful healers

What are Flower Essences?

Flower Essences are a a gentle form of healing that ease our emotions and give us emotional strength.

Are Flower Essences the same as Essential Oils?

Flower Essences are not the same as Essentials oils. Essential Oils is another name for Aromatherapy oils. Aromatherapy oils or Essential oils are made from the inner liquid or oils of the plant.

How are Flower Essences made?

Flower essences are made by transferring the energy of the flower into pure water. 

Fact - Every thing on this earth, including our bodies, vibrates at different rates - Physics.
Fact - Each type of flower vibrates at its own rate.
Fact - people with similar emotions tend to be drawn to each other.
Fact - water holds energy.

In making Flower essences we make use of water to hold energy. We can then transfer it to ourselves in our time of necessity.

How do Flower essences help us?

Flower essences can help us ease our emotions and strengthen us in our times of trouble.

How do we know which Flower Essence to take?

There are many different ways that we can know instinctively which flower essence to take.
Are you attracted to the name of the essence?
Do you like the colour of the flower that the essence is made from.
Do you like the shape of the flower  of the essence?
If the flower has a perfume, do you like the perfume of the flower?

Do you only take an Essence you are attracted to?

Sometimes we really dislike a flower or bush while someone else will like it.
Sometimes it is beneficial to take the essence of a flower we do not like. It might be addressing a deep fear or emotion. These emotions run very deep and will take more time to ease.

How do I take Flower Essences?

Flower Essences are easy to take. As you know they come in water in a bottle. This bottle is a dropper bottle. There is usually some form of alcohol in the bottle as a preservative. Take 2 to 7 drops as directed on the bottle. This liquid is placed under the tongue in a clean mouth. This means that you have not had any food or coffee/strong flavour drink for about twenty minutes before or after the drops for optimal absorption.

Flower essences are sometimes taken 3 or four times a day, depending on need.
Alternatively, the drops can be placed in water and sipped as needed.

Anxiety Runs in Families

Lavender is a calming flower to have around you

Do you suffer from Anxiety?

  ‘Researchers are learning that anxiety disorders run in families, and that they have a biological basis, much like allergies or diabetes and other disorders. Anxiety disorders may develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality,  and life events.’  from the Anxiety and Depression Association  of America.

Yes, it is understandable that anxiety should run in families. We only  have to look around us at the people we know to realise that many things run in families. We learn to be who we are by the influence of our family. We eat the  same food as the people in our family. We have the same genes as the people in  our family.

All these things can and do affect us. We learn to cope in the same way as the people in our family. When we become adults we change who we mix with, have our own friends and are influenced by the people we mix with at work. We can even change our diet. Even if we are no longer mixing directly with our family we carry them with us for the rest of our life in the genes in our body.

We can influence how we feel by the way we think, the food we eat and the company we keep.

Natural ways to ease  Anxiety

The gentle energy of Flower Essences  can also help us with the way we feel. They affect our aura, our energy system.
Dr Edward Bach was a medical doctor and specialist in London in the 1930s. He discovered the benefits of the energy of plants and how they can also affect the  way we think and feel.

Coming with a long history, herbs can also influence the way we think and feel. Sometimes we need a little help to cope with the events  in our life. Herbs are a gentle, safe, tried and true way we can turn for our  health.

Tell us some natural remedies you have used for anxiety. This way we can help each other.
