Mindful Massage - Julie silver

If you want the healthiest summer, and holiday, if you are going away, see my top tips below…

  • If you want to feel more toned and maybe lose a bit of weight to wear your summer clothes or bikini on the beach then start eating more natural foods without artificial additives. Substitute wheat for natural healthy gluten free alternatives such as quinoabuckwheatmillet, rice etc as it is indicated that cutting out wheat can help with weight loss, decrease inflammation and feeling less bloated & fatigued.​ Also include a variety of vegetables which contain potassium and can help with fluid retention, blood sugar and weight issues.
  • It is important to keep hydrated during the hot weather and I recommend taking a highly effective quality travel water filter bottle while out and about and if you are going on holiday. My favourite is the drinkSAFE-systems New Travel Tap ‘Flip spout’ easy use version 800ml bottle. It is also useful for washing grazes, brushing teeth, cooking, pouring and filling other bottles/containers etc. The Waterstraw is also effective and is the lightest proven personal protection device in the world. It can be re-used again and again. There are discounts available during the summer. Take a look on the website to get more information & order or email Giles on info@drinksafe-systems.co.uk to get reassuring advice.
  • During the hot weather and when doing any sports then add Sports Electrolyte Fix Liquid by Viridian to your water as this is healthy and natural unlike most other electrolyte drinks/powders. Add some raw honey too if you want to add a sweet addition.
  • Nano and Colloidal Silver is known to be effective against any virus and illness so a great product to take on holiday or use at home. Spray some around you whilst on a plane journey and use in cases of infections, viruses, sore throats, digestive issues etc. The Health Factory have brought out a nano silver high quality spray in a mini dark violet bottle that helps to preserve it further. Available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • If you get a stomach upset, diarrhoea or any other uncomfortable digestive symptoms take either activated charcoal (you can get it in tablet form by Bragg’s) or  a natural toxin-binding gel called Silicea Gastrointestinal Gel or Enterosgel. All available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • Prepare your skin on holiday or in the sun by taking a supplement called SPF Skin Pro Factors by Viridian. It contains a powerful synergy of carotenoids and antioxidants which help to strengthen the skin against damage from free radicals and the sun. It improves elasticity, texture and pigmentation etc. Available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • If you are flying then it would be beneficial to take a supplement called Pycnogenol, which is an extract derived from maritime pine tree bark. Studies have found that it can prevent deep vein thrombosis, ankle swelling and severe jet lag. Research more on the internet if you are interested in taking this supplement and seek guidance of a health practitioner if needed.  You can purchase this from Natural Dispensary and other health shops.  
  • Lavender Essential oil or Tea Tree Oil can be beneficial for bites and stings and can be used neat on the skin. Put a few drops on a tissue to help calm you down and protect from airborne germs when flying. (Lavender is contraindicated for low blood pressure). A couple of brands are available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • When travelling it is beneficial to take a probiotic recommended for travelling abroad to help to prevent stomach upsets. Optibac have one called Travelling Abroad. Take one capsule daily 3-5 days before departure, continuing during travel abroad and for a few days upon return from travel. They also have one called Saccharomyces boulardii that can be taken instead if you get a stomach upset, which is a safe and natural alternative to Imodium. Take one to four capsules depending on severity of symptoms and up to six capsules daily. Available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • If you are looking for an effective and  natural inspect repellent then my recommendation would be a brand called Incognito. They are natural and  DEET free, registered with The Vegan Society. They have a wide range of products from a spray, roll on, suncream, shampoo, moisturiser, Zap-Ease after-bite relief, room freshener, incense sticks etc. All with the insect repellent properties. CLICK HERE for website with more details.
  • If you want find it beneficial to suck on a sweet when landing on the flight or have a sore throat I recommend instead pure Manuka Honey Lozenges by Comvita. Available from Natural Dispensary using product ID COM-20018 in search box – see details below.
  • Coconut oil can be taken on your holiday to have many uses such as a moisturiser, aftersun to help heal sunburn, make-up remover, for shaving, skin eruptions etc.
  • Most sunscreen and sunblock creams & oils contain harmful chemicals that can have negative effects on your health. I recommend using a natural sunscreen or sunblock that contains ingredients to improve the health of your skin and protect it from the sun at the same time. My favourite brand is Organii SPF 15, 30 & 50 which is non-whitening and available at online shops such as Pravera Direct  and All Natural Me 
  • SOS Advance is an excellent blood cleansing tonic to defend against disease, bacteria, microbes, viruses, toxins and parasites. CLICK HERE to read more information. It is now available in new enteric capsules that are easy to take when travelling and out and about. To order call Nigel on 01274 615914 to get a 10% discount if you mention Julie Silver as the practitioner who recommended you.
  • A homeopathic remedy called Apis Mel is indicated for bites, stings, sunburn etc so worth taking some on holiday and keeping some in your bag wherever you go. Check out more information on the internet. You can get the brand Weleda from Natural Dispensary – see details below.

Allergies can occur any time of the year although Hay Fever tends to be worse during the spring and summer months. I always recommend treating symptoms naturally if possible as medications tend to suppress symptoms and cause other health implications. Liver congestion and dehydration are factors when it comes to hay fever and allergy symptoms so it is best to cleanse the body and strengthen the immune system. Also keeping the body hydrated as possible through ways I’ve listed below, which is more likely to lessen symptoms which maybe irradicated over time.

  • Substitute caffeinated and sugar laden drinks for water when possible. Introduce more natural foods that are free of chemicals and artificial additives, gluten-free whole grains, dairy-free alternatives and no added sugar foods as much as you can.
  • When you get an allergy flare up put a small amount of unprocessed salt on the end of your tongue and allow it to absorb.
  • Replace toiletries and cleaning products that contain harmful chemicals (which cause damage to your liver and other organs) with natural and organic ones.
  • Locally grown raw honey desensitizes the body from local pollen – take 2 tablespoons daily before the hay fever season preferably.
  • Apimist Xtra Pollen contains a synergy of raw honey, pollen and Royal Jelly. This can help to build up your resistance to hayfever, boost your immune system, increase energy and improve your general health too. It is from a small ethical family run company called Apitherapy. CLICK HERE for more details of this product and others. If you mention Julie Silver you will receive a 5% discount. Speak to Ali or Kelly on 01263 761525.
  • Quercetin Plus by Biocare as this is rich in the anti-inflammatory ingredients quercetin and bromelain.
  • Stinging Nettle Urtica Drops or Luffa Complex by A Vogel (BioForce) are natural products to alleviate hay fever and allergies.
  • HayMax (www.haymax.biz) is a proven natural pollen barrier balm which is applied to the base of the nostrils forming an invisible barrier recommended for hay fever, pet or dust allergies. It traps pollen and dust so it doesn’t enter the body.  It is made from 100% natural ingredients and doesn’t cause any side effects such as a drowsy feeling. Can be used for dust or pet allergies too. You can buy it from some natural health shops, Natural Dispensary and other online shops. 
  • A Saltpipe which is a natural salt inhaler, can help to calm the cells lining the respiratory system and stimulate the cleansing process.
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids is beneficial for allergies and hay fever due to the anti-inflammatory properties. This is lacking in most diets so I recommend taking a good quality supplement such as Viridian Organic Scandinavian Rainbow Trout Oil or The Health Factory Marine Phytoplankton if vegan as this one contains the highest amounts of omega 3 in plant form.
  • Vitamin C is a natural antihistamine and the most beneficial are liposomal vitamin C preparations such as Altrient C.
  • Probiotics can be beneficial to help allergies due to improving gut health. You can get a liquid one by Symprove and tablets by brands such as Optibac, Bio-Kult or a soil based variety such as Body Biotics by Kiki.

For good quality filtered water at a reasonable cost I recommend the Biocera Alkaline jug filter from Water For Health and quote JULIE SILVER when ordering to get a 10% discount by phone 01764 683758. It is free delivery too.

You can buy natural health supplements such as probiotics, liposomal vitamin C, Stinging Nettle Urtica Drops or Luffa Complex by A Vogel (BioForce), Quercetin Plus by Biocare, The Health Factory Marine Phytoplankton, saltpipe, Viridian Organic Scandinavian Rainbow Trout Oil, HayMax, etc from Natural Dispensary – www.naturaldispensary.co.uk  Complete the online registration form, putting Julie Silver in the box which asks for the name of the Practitioner who referred you.

I used to find it impossible to grow my hair past a certain length before it went wispy and lacklustre. Having naturally curly hair meant it never looked glossy, just quite dry and on the brittle side with a greasy scalp. However, once I started eating a healthier diet, taking supplements and and using natural products I have found my hair quality better than ever and instead of having to wash it every other day, I can now leave it for about a week. I will share some of my tips…

I found that eliminating dairy products and sugar has a positive impact on my hair as well as my health. I started eating whole grains, plant based protein and organic animal protein, a wide variety of vegetables and sea vegetables.

The sea vegetables, which contain 10x minerals than land vegetables, consisted mainly of Nori (especially when I made my own sushi – without raw fish), Arame,  Dulse, Wakame and Hijiki, which is the most renowned sea vegetable to promote healthier hair as it purifies the blood of damaging toxins and apparently has 16 times more calcium than milk per unit measure. Also eight times the amount of iron as beef. According to Japanese folklore, eating hijiki is better than any shampoo when it comes to keeping hair thick and glossy.

I found that antioxidant supplements such as Pycnogenol (aka Pine Bark Extract) help to increase the blood flow to the scalp and provides nutrients necessary for producing strong healthy hair.

Collagen helps to condition the hair if you take this internally. If you aren’t vegetarian or vegan then bone broth will be beneficial as it provides natural collagen. You can make your own from organic chicken carcass from Able and Cole* or buy it from there or any other shops.

Did you know that most hair care products & treatments contain a cocktail of chemicals that release toxins into the body via the scalp and skin? Even just inhaling them can have negative health implications. They contain chemicals like resins, plastics, waxes and silicones. These are derived from petroleum by-products formulated to cosmetically coat your hair shaft. They coat the surface of your hair which creates shine and volume so your locks look glossy and gorgeous. Over time though these very ingredients build up on your hair shaft making it look lifeless, dull, frizzy, and difficult to manage. This is the reason that you will be told to rotate your shampoo and hair products.

The toxic ingredients to look for that will have this effect:

  • Dimethacon
  • Cyclomethicone
  • Acrylates
  • Copolymers
  • Methylchloroisothiazolinone
  • Methylisothiazolinone
  • Paraffin Waxes

The good news is that there are natural alternatives that contain healthy ingredients to give a natural shine and improve the condition of your hair without causing any harmful side effects.

My current natural favourite shampoo is Khadi Rose Hair Repair Shampoo.  It doesn’t have much of a lather although it  leaves my hair feeling clean, full of body, shine and has a delightful aroma. There are several varieties of Khadi shampoos as well as hair powders, hair colours and hair oils which you can find on websites such as Pravera Direct and All Natural Me

Another shampoo I like is Sante Moisturising Shampoo which contains ingredients such as Rosa Damascena Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Silk, Arginine etc.

I do like to use a natural hair gel to stop my hair going frizzy and I have been using the Sante Styling Gel which comes in a handy tube size so can be taken out and about easily.

He Shou Wu (aka Fo-Ti) is a supplement I like which  has a long history of use as a hair growth and rejuvenation tonic. It has been reported to demonstrate a remarkable ability to reverse hair loss and restore rich colour to white or graying hair. It apparently has a harmonising effect on the endocrine system (hormone-producing glands), containing a high zinc content which may account to the beneficial effects on hair growth and restoration. There are varieties that are unprepared versions which can have negative implications. My favourite brand of prepared He Shou Wu is by Hybrid Herbs which is also available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.

I also include natural supplements such as Gourmet Spirulina, Brewer’s Yeast tablets, Marine Phytoplankton, Chlorella etc. All available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.

You can buy many of the natural health supplements mentioned from Natural Dispensary – www.naturaldispensary.co.uk  Complete the online registration form, putting Julie Silver in the box which asks for the name of the Practitioner who referred you. You will need to register to see the prices and order. Postage is free if you spend £25 or more.

*Able and Cole will delivery organic bone broth, organic chicken carcass, vegetables, meat, fish, and many grocery products. They charge £1,25 delivery when you spend £12.50 or more.  See www.ableandcole.co.uk for more details. If you quote my reference number 383234 or my name as someone who recommended you, you will get a free gift and if you then recommend someone when you have set up an account you will also get a free gift.

As well as changing what I ate and introducing natural products I also found ways to relax and reduce stress, such as conscious breathing techniques, Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Qi Gong etc, which helped my hair growth as well as my general health.

Skin conditions such as eczema could be making you want to cover up to save any embarrassment. It affects many people and severity can vary from person to person. It is best to heal naturally otherwise if you suppress it, it can come back more aggressively. When I have treated clients with eczema it can heal very quickly with some and take longer with others. Here are some of my top tips to heal eczema naturally…

  • It would be preferable to avoid refined, processed foods & drinks. Sugar, gluten, dairy products that are usually linked to eczema flare ups and as they affect the gut in a negative way. Leaky gut is usually detected with eczema so eating a more natural mineral rich diet including bone broth (if you aren’t vegetarian or vegan). L-Glutamine amino acid can help to repair the gut and Fermented foods such as Kefir, Sauerkraut are a beneficial way to increase good bacteria. Otherwise a probiotic supplement such as  Symprove (plain variety), which is an easily assimilated liquid. If you prefer a tablet then Bio-Kult are a good quality and affordable brand, or you can choose one with soil based organisms such as Body Biotics by Kiki. These are available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • Eat natural foods mineral rich foods that are free of pesticides and chemical and choose organic when possible. Warming and easy to digest foods are usually more beneficial when healing eczema as this skin condition is known to be dampening in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Raw and cold foods as well as dampening foods; wheat, bananas, orange, juice, tomato juice, yeast, dairy products, concentrated sugar products etc. may be best avoided/limited. Include lots of vegetables including green leafy vegetables & sea vegetables, although you might want to cut down/avoid the nightshade vegetables; potatoes, tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, as they can aggravate skin issues.
  • Broccoli Sprout Juice is a good source of nutrients including minerals and vitamins and enzymes, to help the body break down fats and proteins. Vegus Foods is the only producer of broccoli sprout juice in the world and it is raw and cold pressed. It contains Sulforaphane which has many health properties that can help with skin disorders. Receive £10 off your first order on 4-weekly recurring orders (which you can cancel at anytime immediately after first payment has been taken). Enter code 876543 to get this discount. CLICK HERE for more details and to order.
  • Taking a Vitamin D supplement is extremely beneficial for eczema and skin health. Many people are lacking in this, especially if you don’t get out in the sunshine or wear sunscreen etc. I recommend Vitamin D Liquid by Nature’s Answer, or Vitamin D/K2 liquid by Thorne Research or Nutri.  Also the spray by BetterYou which comes in different dosages.
  • B vitamins are recommended for the nervous system so ideal for skin issues that are caused by stress. The most cost effective way to get your dose of B vitamins is by taking Brewer’s Yeast. The ones I recommend are The Health Aid Super Brewers Yeast as they have no fillers and very reasonably priced. They are available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • Use natural hair & body products, deodorant, toothpaste, cosmetics, cleaning products etc as the chemicals contained in non-natural products have a negative effect on the liver, gut and other organs that can cause skin issues such as eczema. Some of my recommended brands are Dr Bronner’s for natural soaps etc, Aubrey Organics for natural toiletries, Pacifica cosmetics, Lafe’s deodorant, Weleda and OregaFresh-P73 Oregano toothpaste. These are available in the UK at Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • Relaxation is beneficial for eczema as when you are stressed it can induce flare ups and aggravation of symptoms. Include some gengle exercise you enjoy such as walking and Yoga, Qi Gong or Tai Chi are beneficial. Yoga Nidra practice, meditation and massage is also conducive to relaxation and rejuvenation.
  • Toxaprevent, which is a very clean form of Zeolite aka Clinoptilolite that acts like a sponge to absorb toxic substances including heavy metals, histamine, ammonium etc. You can take internally in capsule and powder form. Also Toxaprevent Skin Suspension can be used as a treatment for severe skin problems such as Eczema. It contains two incredients MANC and Colloidal Water. Colloidal water allows the MANC to penetrate deeper underneath the skin surface, to remove any histamine which causes the itchiness and redness accompanied with the conditions. For more details see the website http://www.toxaprevent.co.uk/  Quote code 10258U9GI to get a 10% discount and also free shipping if you spend over £40 (worth over £6). You can call the company on 02476 363873 to get a personalised protocol for any specific conditions. Quote code or recommended practitioner Julie Silver to receive the discount and free shipping.
  • SOS Advance is beneficial for skin health and helps to clean the blood from toxins, fungi, viruses etc. It is recommended that you take a course of 3 bottles You can get a skin tonic and skin wash to use on the skin. You can read about the products on their website: http://www.sosessentials.com/ and if you call them on 01274 615914 and order over the phone then you can get a 10% discount if you mention Julie Silver as the practitioner who recommended you.
  • Activated Charcoal is very beneficial to take if you are experiencing a detoxification reaction as it leeches toxins from the lymph, extracellular fluids and the bowel. It helps to eliminate them from the body at the same time reducing symptoms of detoxification. Normally these toxins will cause unpleasant side effects if your glands or organs are weak and will result in symptoms such as skin rashes and eczema. You can buy this in powder and capsule form at online shops such as Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids are beneficial to take with eczema and will help heal the gut. They are usually lacking in most diets so I recommend taking a good quality supplement such as Viridian Organic Scandinavian Rainbow Trout Oil, Wiley’s Finest Omega-3 Fish Oil or The Health Factory Marine Phytoplankton* if vegan as this one contains the highest amounts of omega 3 in plant form. You can also buy vegan EPA/DHA supplements.
  • Magnesium is essential for energy and relaxing the mind & body and it is a lacking mineral in almost everyone unless you are supplementing. You can take it internally in capsule/powder form although I prefer the nano mineral water by The Health Factory*, or Magnesium Oil by BetterYou, which is a spray that you massage into the skin so it avoids going through the digestive system. You can get the Magnesium flakes for a bath or foot soak.

*You can buy The Health Factory Marine Phytoplankton and Nano Magnesium in the UK from Noble Naturals. To order and for more details contact Abigail on 01342 457170 or email: support@noblenaturals.co.uk and mention you read the details on this blog as they only usually deal with practitioners.

Whether you love to smile or not, it may be important to you to have healthier teeth. The state of your gums is an indication for the state of your health so if you would like healthier gums and teeth then read on…

 

  • As gut health is linked to a healthy mouth I would recommend avoiding refined, processed foods & drinks. Also sugar, gluten, dairy products can have a negative effect on the digestive health so eating a more natural mineral rich diet including bone broth (if you aren’t vegetarian or vegan). L-Glutamine amino acid can help to repair the gut and Fermented foods such as Kefir, Sauerkraut are a beneficial way to increase good bacteria. Otherwise a probiotic supplement such as  Symprove (plain variety), which is an easily assimilated liquid. If you prefer a tablet then Bio-Kult are a good quality and affordable brand, or you can choose one with soil based organisms such as Body Biotics by Kiki. These are available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.

  •  Drinking filtered water instead of sugary or caffeinated drinks, also herbal teas can be an option occasionally unless they contain citric acid as this damage tooth enamel. 

 

  • Taking a kelp supplement could help improve quality of the teeth and make them feel cleaner with less plaque accumulating. My favourite brand is Viridian as they are the most natural and effective ones I have found. You can buy these at some health shops and online shops such as Natural Dispensary.

 

  • I recommend using a natural toothpaste without fluoride* as conventional varieties contain sweeteners and artificial ingredients. You can also make your own with natural ingredients such as water and bicarbonate of soda, or buy a Soladey toothbrush and use without any toothpaste. If you prefer to buy a toothpaste then I would recommend  OregaFresh-P73 Oregano Toothpaste by Tigon or Weleda toothpaste. You can buy these from Natural Dispensary – see details below. 

*Fluoride may help strengthen the enamel although not the quality of the teeth and can cause negative health issues. 

  • Interdental brushes are very beneficial for helping to prevent gum disease by clearing pieces of food and plaque from between your teeth. The Easy Brush Interdental Cleaners from DenTek are my favourite interdental brushes, as I prefer the shape of these to others that I’ve tried. These brushes are available in Boots and other pharmacies.

  • A good quality fish oil such as Wiley’s can improve your gut health which in turn will be beneficial for your oral health, as well as offer vital prevention in the development of periodontal disease. Wiley’s supplements are available in capsule-form or in a liquid. CLICK HERE to find out more about the Wiley’s range.  You can also buy vegan EPA/DHA supplements by brands such as Viridian and Cyptoplan, which are available in the UK at Natural Dispensary – see details below.

 

  • Bleeding gums can be caused by too much heat in the stomach and liver. Chinese herbs that can help with this are Schisandra and He Shou Wu. Also Milk Thistle can help the liver health. These are all available from Natural Dispensary. 
  • Chewing on Frankincense resin can improve oral health as it is anti-inflammatory and has antiseptic properties. It can help relieve toothache, mouth sores, bad breath and swollen gums. Chewing the resin also makes your teeth and gums strong. It increases saliva flow, which in turn can help reduce dental caries. Only chew a very high quality resin such as Royal Green Hojari and do NOT chew on the poor quality resin (such as the brown one). It is stickier than normal gum although it is safe if you happen to swallow any as it has many therapeutic properties. You can buy it from this WEBSITE postage free and get a 10% discount if you quote SPARKLE10. You could also chew it with Mastic Gum Beads by Nutrivital to make the Frankincense resin less sticky and this also has health benefits for the digestion. You can buy this from Natural Dispensary – see details below. 

 

  • Magnesium helps strengthen enamel on the teeth as well as improving many health conditions. You can rub the Magnesium oil onto your body as it absorbs into your bloodstream directly through the skin. The brand BetterYou is my favourite. An effective way to take magnesium internally is Nano Magnesium Mineral water available from Noble Naturals UK. To order contact Abigail on 01342 457170 or email: support@noblenaturals.co.uk and mention you read the details on this blog as they only usually deal with practitioners.

  • Toxaprevent Halistop Chewable Tablets bind and remove compounds containing ammonium odorants from the mouth and gums for the natural regulation of halitosis. The tablets also bind and remove histamine, improving wound healing in the mouth and reducing inflammation of the gums  for bad breath. For more details CLICK HERE. Quote code 10258U9GI to get a 10% discount and also free shipping if you spend over £40 (worth over £6).

  • Activated charcoal can be used to help whiten the teeth. It is slightly abrasive so I only recommend doing this once a week. Put a small amount of the powder on a toothbrush, or break open a capsule. It will initially make your teeth and mouth black although this can be rinsed off leaving your teeth looking and feeling cleaner & whiter. Available online from health shops such as Natural Dispensary. 

  • Oil Pulling may help to whiten teeth as well as detoxify the body. More details on my oil pulling blog

It’s important to get your teeth checked by a qualified dentist regularly and visit a dental hygienist too. There are some holistic dentists so check to see if there are any in your area. 

Feel free to contact me for more information of any of the above – julie@juliesilver.co.uk

You can buy natural health supplements such as Nutrivital mastic gum beads, Viridian Kelp, activated charcoal, natural toothpaste, dental floss and mouthwash as well as many other natural supplements and products from Natural Dispensary – www.naturaldispensary.co.uk  Complete the online registration form, putting Julie Silver in the box which asks for the name of the Practitioner who referred you.

If you would like further information about the topic of this post, then please get in touch using the form below.

 

If you, or someone you know, is suffering from the flu virus or an infection etc. then you may want to read some of my top tips to help heal more quickly in a natural way…

  • If you are hungry, do your best to eat foods that are not going to be too taxing for your digestion such as warming soups and stews, hydrating whole grains that will help bind toxins to take out the body such as brown rice, millet, quinoa, buckwheat, also vegetables that are easy to digest such as root veg and the cruciferous ones containing phytochemicals, vitamins & minerals, such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, watercress etc. Easy to digest proteins such as beans/legumes/pulses or fresh fish or organic poultry if you aren’t vegetarian/vegan. If it’s possible avoid artificial additives, sugar, alcohol, dairy products etc.
  • Wild Oregano oil is a natural alternative to antibiotics and the easiest one to take is called H2Orega as it is water soluble. The hydrophobic molecules are quickly utilised and taken up better in the gastrointestinal tract. If you get the standard Wild Oregano oil then be very careful you take it in a fat soluble liquid as if not it will burn your mouth/digestion. You can buy this from Natural Dispensary – see details below. Type H2Orega in the search bar.
  • Activated Charcoal helps reduce symptoms of detoxification. Usually, when the body is detoxifing, there are detoxification symptoms that may not be able to get out the body through the proper channels resulting in unpleasant symptoms such as cold or flu, headaches, aching muscles and joints and aggravation of any pre-existing condition. The powder is the most cost effective way to take it. Put a heaped dessert spoon in a large glass and top up with water (filtered is best). Stir and drink with a straw (otherwise you might look like a chimney sweep 😉 Take a pure one made from coconut shells up to 3 times daily in between meals or whenever needed. It is important to drink lots of filtered water when consuming the Activated Charcoal to avoid dehydration. CLICK HERE to buy a powder form from the UK that is reasonably priced – listed under detox products on left hand side of their website.
  • Take Elderberry herbal remedy at the first sign of symptoms may help to deactivate the flu virus and boost the immunity in a natural way. I recommend liquid remedies rather than tablets. You can buy in health shops and online shops such as Natural Dispensary – see details below. Healthaid is a cost effective brand.
  • Echinacea, which is a popular herb known to shorten symptoms of colds and flu, also reduce sore throat, cough, fever and boost the immune system. A clinical trial it showed that echinacea was just as effective as the flu drug. I recommend a liquid variety in tincture form by brands such as Viridian and Bioforce. One of my favourites though is by Nature’s Answer which is alcohol-free. They are all available on the Natural Dispensary website – see details below.
  • Manuka honey is effective to boost the immune system. My favourite brand is Littleover Apiaries Ltd as they do not try to artificially “boost” activity levels as some Manuka brands do. Their Luxury Manuka Honey 10+ would be the one recommended for flu/infections. It is best not to heat to a high temperature as this will destroy the enzymes and healing properties.
  • Keeping hydrated with good quality filtered water and use it to make warm drinks. There is a water jug filter/dispenser called Zerowater now available in the UK with an aim to deliver the best filtration possible with their premium five-stage ion exchange technology, this filter removes virtually all total dissolved solids (TDS), a claim which no other filter jug or dispenser can put their name to.  You can get 10% discount and free shipping in the UK off the jug filters, dispenser and additional filters using code: vital2710CLICK HERE for more details and to order.
  • Studies have shown that Propolis can be effective for colds, flu and infections due to its powerful bacteria-killing properties. You can buy a good quality non alcoholic propolis tincture from Apitherapy Wellbeing. CLICK HERE for details. Speak to Ali on 01263 761525 and mention you have been recommended by practitioner Julie Silver to get a 5% discount off your order.
  • If an infection or virus is in your system Nano Silver can be very beneficial due to its antibacterial, antibiotic and antifungal properties. *The Health Factory is my favourite brand – see details below. They also have a Nano Zinc and Zinc/Copper water that is very beneficial to promote healing and boost the immune system.
  • Other products to help boost your immune system are Beta Glucan, Astragalus, Vitamin C, Vitamin D etc. All available at Natural Dispensary – see details below.

*The Health Factory Nano Waters and other health supplements/products are available in the UK from Noble Naturals. Mention practitioner Julie Silver when ordering as they don’t usually deal with non-practitioners. Speak to Abigail on 01342 457170 or email support@noblenaturals.co.uk

It’s that time of the year when it’s getting darker earlier, the weather has got colder and you may be feeling under the weather needing a pick me up to boost your immune system. Here are some of my top tips…

 

  • Keeping hydrated with good quality filtered water. There is a water jug filter/dispenser called Zerowater now available in the UK with an aim to deliver the best filtration possible with their premium five-stage ion exchange technology, this filter removes virtually all total dissolved solids (TDS), a claim which no other filter jug or dispenser can put their name to.  You can get 10% discount and free shipping in the UK off the jug filters, dispenser and additional filters using code: vital2710. CLICK HERE for more details and to order.

  • If you want to use a water filter bottle on the move then the Black + Blum Eau Good Duo comes with an activated stick of Japanese Binchotan charcoal in the bottle, it softens water, adds good minerals such as calcium, removes contaminants, balances PH and absorbs unwanted tastes and odours, such as chlorine. You can just use the bottle to have your favourite fresh fruits and herbs as it has a built-in infuser cap, although you have to remove the charcoal first. CLICK HERE for more details.

Broccoli Sprout Juice is a good source of nutrients including minerals and vitamins and enzymes, to help the body break down fats and proteins. Vegus Foods is the only producer of broccoli sprout juice in the world and it is raw and cold pressed. It contains Sulforaphane which has many health properties including anticancer,  anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, neuroprotective, antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-diabetic. Some of the research topics from studies: Cancer & Carcinogens – Intestinal Health – Autism – Alzheimer’s Disease – Parkinson’s Disease – Skin Disorders – Aging – Eyes – Air Pollution – Diseases caused by Protein Misfolding. You can search more online.

  • Include some exercise you enjoy such as walking, rebounding, swimming etc. Also ones to reduce stress and promote relaxation such as YogaQi Gong or Tai Chi are beneficial. Yoga Nidra practice, meditation and massage is also conducive to relaxation and rejuvenation.

  • Eat foods that are easy on the digestion and include hydrating foods such as whole grains; brown rice (or a good quality white rice if you can’t digest the fibre in brown rice easily), millet, quinoa, buckwheat, vegetable proteins such as beans, lentils, pulses and include protein such as soft boiled eggs, fresh fish & small amounts of grass fed meat or organic poultry if you aren’t vegetarian or vegan, lots of vegetables including green leafy vegetables & sea vegetables.

  • The DHA & EPA found in Omega-3 supplements can vastly improve your health and immune system. I recommend Wiley’s Finest Omega-3 Fish Oil, which is made from sustainable Wild Alaskan Pollock. Wiley’s supplements are available in capsule-form or in a liquid. The newest product from the Wiley’s range is Vitamin K2 MenaQ7 (MK-7), which contains 100% of your daily recommended Vitamin D. This is great for supporting heart and bone health, as well as helping your immune system during the cold winter months. CLICK HERE to order and read more about the Wiley’s range.  You can also buy vegan EPA/DHA supplements by brands such as Viridian and Cyptoplan, which are available in the UK at Natural Dispensary – see details below.

  • The herb Astragalus is noted for being effective for the immune system, however, it has many other beneficial properties such as strengthening the body, increasing energy, improving adrenal fatigue leading to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Available at Natural Dispensary and can be bought in powder, liquid and tablet form. Type Astragalus in the search bar to find different brands.

  • Apimist Xtra Pollen contains a synergy of raw honey, pollen, propolis and Royal Jelly. This honey helps to boost your immune system, increase energy and improve your general health due to a significant amount of nutrients naturally contained in it – CLICK HERE for more details of this product and others.

  • If you have a cough, cold, sore/dry throat or just wanting a natural sweet/lozenge to help boost the immune system then suck on a Comvita Manuka Honey Lozenge to give you relief. There are different varieties such as Lemon & Ginger flavour, Menthol & Blackcurrant and Peppermint & Menthol. They contain natural ingredients without added sugar. CLICK HERE for more details. They are also available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.

  • Gynostemma, also called Jiaogulan, is an adaptogenic herb and potent health tonic which is taken as a herbal tea. It helps bring the whole body back into balance and increases strength and stamina protecting the body and mind from mental & physical stress. It has many other health properties which you can look up or email me – julie@juliesilver.co.uk and I will email you the details. The best quality brand I have found in the UK is from Na’vi Organics. It is available in loose tea form and capsules. Type Gynostemma in the search bar or look under tonic herbs – CLICK HERE for more details and to order.

  • Some mushrooms such as Reishi, Maitake & Shiitake are known to be medicinal and boost the immune system. Pukka have a product called Mushroom Gold.  Available at Natural Dispensary – see details below.

  • Nano Mineral Waters are very beneficial as they get instantly absorbed in the body. Zinc or Zinc/Copper are vital for boosting immunity. Gold has powerful healing potential. There has been research to say it could greatly improve brain and nervous system functioning to reduce the symptoms depression, anxiety, Parkinson’s disease, Alzhiemer’s disease and other degenerative brain diseases. Also fight several addictions such as sugar. Platinum has a regenerative effect on the heart tissue, the thymus (which plays an important role in the immune system) and the entire hormone system. Magnesium* is one of the six essential macro-minerals necessary for increasing energy, improving sleep, strengthen bones, remineralise teeth, improve hydration, helps prevent strokes, heart disease, relieve any aches and pains, diabetes etc. You can buy these the UK from Noble Naturals. To order and for more details contact Abigail on 01342 457170 or email: support@noblenaturals.co.uk and mention you read the details on this blog as they only usually deal with practitioners.

*Magnesium can be taken in various forms other than the nano water and I also recommend rubbing BetterYou Magnesium Oil into the body, or having a bath/foot soak with the Magnesium Flakes or Oil.

  • Whatever emerges whether physical or emotional do your best to understand that it has come up for healing and acknowledgement. There is nothing right or wrong, good or bad. Find a compassionate friend/family member/practitioner to help you when needed.
  • Practice dry skin brushing before a morning shower using a dry skin brush which is available from health shops.  Brush upwards from the feet to the top of the legs, from fingertips to upper arms, from the lower abdomen to the heart, down chest to the heart and then down your back from shoulders to lower back).  This will help remove the dead skin cells so will take pressure off your other organs and may improve your immune system also.
  • Use natural hair & body products, deodorant, toothpaste, cosmetics, cleaning products etc as the chemicals contained in non-natural products upset natural gut flora and other organs of the body can be affected too.
  • It is beneficial to conserve your energy whilst going through a detoxification process so if you feel like you need a rest or sleep more then go with it as much as you can.
  • To remove excess toxins out of the body naturally through the digestion take a course of Toxaprevent, which is a very clean form of Zeolite that acts like a sponge to absorb toxic substances including heavy metals, histamine, ammonium etc. For more details CLICK HERE. Quote code 10258U9GI to get a 10% discount and also free shipping if you spend over £40 (worth over £6).

Wild Oregano or Goldenseal can be taken as a natural alternative to antiobiotics.  All available at Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • Probiotics help to improve gut health which is key to building health and promoting vitality. If you prefer a liquid to go straight to the gut choose either Symprove (plain variety).  If you prefer a tablet then Bio-Kult or Body Biotics by Kiki are my recommended ones. All except the Rhythm are available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.

To assist detoxification take algae supplements such as Marine Phytoplankton*, Spirulina (Gourmet Spirulina), Chlorella (Sun Chlorella or Dr Mercola Fermented Chlorella).

If you feel like you need an energy boost whether you eat a healthy diet or not you could be lacking in nutrients that are vital for energy and healing of the body. Here some of my favourite natural supplements that may help you to fire on all cylinders…

  • Shilajit is known as the ‘Destroyer of Weakness’. It improves physical weakness and brain functioning. Shilajit contains over 85 minerals and trace elements in their ionic form and also fulvic acid which helps the body absorb these minerals at a cellular level. It helps to detoxify the body and strengthens it too. Avoid the raw variety and choose the pitch or tar like substance which is the purest.  The brand Hybrid Herbs (which is the cheapest best quality one I have found) is available from Natural Dispensary  (type Shilajit in the search bar – see details below) or direct from Hybrid Herbs Start with a grain of rice size portion first thing in the morning and stir with filtered* boiled water (this is essential).

*I recommend a glass jug filter from  A Fine Choice  www.afinechoice.co.uk. Get 10% discount if you enter Silver10 in the box within the view basket section.

  • The herb Astragalus is noted for being effective for the immune system, however, it has many other beneficial properties such as strengthening the body, increasing energy, improving adrenal fatigue leading to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. This can be taken with Ashwagandha. Both are available at Natural Dispensary and can be bought in powder, liquid and tablet form. Type Astragalus or Ashwagandha in the search bar to find different brands.
  • Apimist Xtra Pollen contains a synergy of raw honey, pollen and Royal Jelly. This honey helps to boost your immune system, increase energy and improve your general health  due to the high amount of nutrients naturally contained in it – CLICK HERE for more details of this product and others. If you mention Julie Silver you will receive a 5% discount. Speak to Ali or Kelly on 01263 761525.
  • Gynostemma, also called Jiaogulan, is an adaptogenic herb and potent health tonic which is taken as a herbal tea. It helps bring the whole body back into balance and increases strength and stamina protecting the body and mind from mental & physical stress. It has many other health properties which you can look up or email me – julie@juliesilver.co.uk and I will email you the details. The best price for an organic and quality brand I have found in the UK is from Na’vi Organics. It is available in loose tea form and capsules. Type Gynostemma in the search bar or look under tonic herbs – CLICK HERE for more details and to order.
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids are beneficial to increase vitality and improve health. They are usually lacking in most diets so I recommend taking a good quality supplement such as Viridian Organic Scandinavian Rainbow Trout Oil or The Health Factory Marine Phytoplankton if vegan as this one contains the highest amounts of omega 3 in plant form. You can also buy vegan EPA/DHA supplements.
  • Probiotics help to improve gut health which is key to building health and promoting vitality. If you prefer a liquid to go straight to the gut choose either Symprove (plain variety).  If you prefer a tablet then Bio-Kult or Body Biotics by Kiki are my recommended ones. All are available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • B vitamins are recommended for the nervous system and to promote energy etc. My preferred brands are Max B-ND by Premier Research Labs which has high-energy available probiotic-fermented B vitamins which offers advanced support for the liver, energy, immune system, adrenals & mood balance and allows rapid cellular delivery and superior biofield resonance dynamics. Methyl B Complex by Biocare or Lamberts are cheaper ones you can buy. Available from Natural Dispensary – see details below.
  • Nano Mineral Waters get instantly absorbed in the body. There are several varieties which have an energising & healing effect such as Magnesium, Zinc/Copper, Silver, Gold, Platinum. The Health Factory is a brand I recommend and you can buy them in the UK from Noble Naturals. To order contact Abigail on 01342 457170 or email: support@noblenaturals.co.uk and mention you read the details on this blog as they only usually deal with practitioners.
  • Algae supplements can be beneficial to boost energy and help detoxification too. My favourites are Spirulina (Gourmet Spirulina brand), Chlorella (Sun Chlorella or Dr Mercola Fermented Chlorella). I am a big fan of the Health Factory Marine Phytoplankton from Noble Naturals – see details above.
