Are you in pain? Or stressed? I can help...

I placed an advert in the Algarve Daily News recently, for my reflexology practice, ‘Perfect Peace Reflexology’.

It was a scrolling advert and wanted to be brief, so it read ‘for pain management and relaxation’, with no mention of the word reflexology. The advert received 400 clicks in its first two weeks, which was great; and no enquiries, less great. But not surprising. I know reflexology isn’t of interest to everyone, but if you’re in pain or not relaxed for any reason, then it will be of interest to you. Also, if you’re pregnant or know someone who is, reflexology seems to be highly beneficial for feet in a new supporting role.

Festive Herbs for Winter HealthEvergreen trees and plants are our go-to winter tonics when other foliage is sparse on the ground. Festive herbs like mistletoe, pine, holly and ivy are all part of historic medicinal traditions that have been mostly forgotten – except, of course, by herbalists!

doctorpaedoThey do not say, but they do it! Years ago, at a meeting in N.Y., someone from an investment fund explained this. In the monetarist school only those who are very productive, 20-45 years old, may get public support, writes Jack Soifer.

The top users at a Public Health Service, are elderly, then children. For speculative funds, the PHS should focus on emergencies. People must pay health insurance, often it’s tax deductible. Most of the insurers refuse to reimburse some of the expenses. Desperate patients pay, then they invest time, money and effort in a process that takes years. Many give up, the emotional cost is too great.

Say Goodbye To PMS ...ForeverHaving battled with period trouble myself, I feel strongly about this topic. Women tend to grin and bear PMS, pain or heavy flow as if it’s the norm – yet it really doesn’t have to be this way.

I’ll say it again: just because PMS, heavy or painful periods are common, doesn’t mean they’re normal. All of it can be avoided by taking a few simple steps towards holistic hormonal health.

Love Your Liver In 2018One of the running jokes in clinic when I was training to be a herbalist was – ‘if you don’t know what to do with a patient, just give them liver herbs’.

Although it may seem flippant, we were only half-joking – and there is no better time to pay attention to the health of our livers than after a merry season of overindulgence!
