Thoughts and insights from a Holistic Health practitioner
So Why does Tapping work?
by Linda Anne Ledwidge
Our body is an amazing machine, it is constantly regenerating, self-healing, self medicating and working to ensure the continual flow of blood and oxygen to all the organs and to maintain a balance of all the hormones and chemicals produced within. Our body does this naturally............until we get in the way.
Are you aware that at least 95% of all illness and disease is caused by the way we REACT to ....
Stress occurs when your mind believes that you are in some kind of danger – whether emotional or physical.
Your body pumps adrenaline into your system to give you a boost.
This is called the “fight or flight” response.
The ideal scenario is that only life threatening situations trigger the stress response in our body which allows us to act quickly with less thought and faster reflexes.
However in our society the stress response is often triggered by a ringing phone, a deadline, a boss, a family member, watching television or any number of other non-life-threatening situations.The long-term effects of continual stress are dangerous – even deadly – to our health and happiness, and, as you can see, stress is everywhere.
Some common effects of excessive stress:
Tapping on the body´s energy meridians (using some of the Acupuncture points ) effectively sends a message to the brain that says “ I am safe” , "there is no threat" and the brain then takes the body out of the “FIGHT OR FLIGHT “ mode. We then become relaxed and allow the body to do what it does naturally.

Add sodium bicarbonate to your shampoo and rub into your hair, shampooing as normal. Just add a small amount in the palm of your hand , add the shampoo and off you go...
Rinse and dry.
Your hair will be shiny and manageable and the sodium bicarbonate helps remove any residue that gels, hairspray etc, have left behind.
Dissolve 3 tablespoons of sodium bicarbonate in a basin of warm water and feel your feet relax. especially good after a long day or before a pedicure.
You can also use as a foot scrub. Inexpensive and invigorating. Mix into a paste and massage into your feet.
Refreshing Bath Soak
For silky smooth skin and big dose of relaxation, add 1/2 cup of sodium bicarbonate to the bath.
Facial & Body Scrub
Mix into a paste and gently massage in circular motion to scrub away dead skin cells, rinse thoroughly and leave yourself with soft, glowing skin.
Add a teaspoon in half a glass of water, swish and gargle and then rinse. This will neutralise odours and leave you with fresh breath.
Hand Cleanser and softener
Mix a paste of 3 parts sodium bicarbonate to 1 part water, or add 3 parts sodium bicarbonate to gentle liquid hand soap. apply to your hands and then rinse clean for soft clean skin.
How embarrassing when you have smelly shoes, now there is no need to worry!
Shake a little sodium bicarbonate into the shoe when you take them off. It works by absorbing odour causing moisture while neutralizing existing odours. Use at least once a week or more if you wear the shoes frequently. Tap out excess baking soda before wearing your sneakers again.
So these are my suggestions on how to use sodium bicarbonate as a natural ingredient for personal hygiene. If anyone has any other tips please feel free to share....

Proper breathing is one of the most beneficial things that you can do for your physical and emotional health.
We can survive for a time without food or even water. We cannot survive without breathing!
Breathing not only supplies our organs with oxygen, it also rids the body of waste products and toxins.
When we are in pain, stressed or anxious we have a tendency to hold our breathe or breathe shallow breathes. This sends a distress signal to our brain and can make the situation worse.
By using breathing exercises we can avoid this.
Are you a chest breather? or an abdomen breather?
Place your right hand on your chest and your left hand on your abdomen. Breathe in , which hand moves higher. If your right hand is higher, you are a chest breather. If your left hand is higher, you are an abdomen breather.
When you are Chest breathing it is inefficient because then the greatest amount of blood flow occurs in the lower lobes of the lungs, areas that have limited air expansion in chest breathers. Rapid, shallow, chest breathing results in less oxygen transfer to the blood and subsequent poor delivery of nutrients to the tissues. This is a learned habit, so therefore, like when you learn to drive, you can train the body to improve its breathing technique.
If you do this consciously and regularly you will breathe from the abdomen most of the time, even while asleep.
Breathing exercises should be done at least twice a day, when you wake up and before you go to sleep.It is also beneficial to do them if you feel stressed, anxious or are in pain.

My challenge to those of you who are up for it is to notice what your body is telling you.

Do you spend more time in a heavy body or a light body?

Since the beginning of time the wise ones have known that food is medicine.
Many people today do not think about what they eat in this way.
Our body cannot thrive or survive without balance. Our body will do whatever it takes to maintain balance, it will take whatever nutrients it requires from the body´s own stores, it will oxygenate the vital organs before the hair, nails and skin and it will compensate for physical imbalance of the skeleton.
The most vital balance in the body is the acid / alkaline balance also known as PH balance.
Our blood PH has a very small range of between 7.35 - 7.45.
OUR BODY PH BALANCE IS VITAL TO OUR LIFE and OUR HEALTH !
An imbalance in the body´s PH may lead to serious health issues such as:
Weight gain / loss
and many more
........and, if left unchecked eventually death.
Research has proven that disease CANNOT SURVIVE in an alkaline environment, however it THRIVES in an acidic environment.
We all have different nutritional requirements, however if out blood is not alkaline, we will become unwell.
There are 2 types of nutrition that we have to look at :
If our intrinsic nutrition is not working efficiently our diet is ineffective. You can eat and drink a "healthy" diet however if the body is unable to get the nutrients to the cells and the cells are unable to process it you are wasting your time.
In order for our intrinsic nutrition to function it requires :
ALL of the above are easy to achieve.
