Reflexology – What is it??

In New Zealand the governing body for reflexologists is Reflexology New Zealand – .  This is a great site to visit for information and links about reflexology.

RNZ (Reflexology New Zealand} define reflexology as:

“Reflexology is a form of treatment that involves applying pressure as well as the use of effleurage techniques (or massage) in a certain manner to all areas of the feet. In the feet there are reflex areas, which relate to all organs and systems within the body and these reflex areas are found on the soles, tops and sides of the feet. The feet as a whole correspond to the whole body. By working the feet it is possible to find out which areas of the body are out of balance and treatment can be given to rebalance the body by stimulating its own healing mechanism. The hands and ears can also be used in reflexology and again similar reflex areas exist corresponding to the whole body.”

Buy some iodine from the chemist.
Paint some on your feet (anywhere is fine but the feet work very well).
Wait for 24 hours if it has all been absorbed you are deficient in iodine, if it is still there you have enough!!

Seaweed for thyroid health

SEAWEED for thyroid health – protect yourself from radiation.
Since the disaster in Japan it is now even more important to think about radiation poisoning and protection from the nuclear fallout.
Your thyroid gland needs iodine to remain healthy (hence the addition of iodine to salt to prevent goiters).
The thyroid has iodine receptors which should be kept full of natural iodine for optimum health, if there are free receptors they will attract radioactive iodine which will stick to the receptors and may cause thyroid cancer (the number 1 killer from radioactive nuclear fallout).
It is ESSENTIAL that you have enough iodine in your diet.
Iodine is also needed by the body for breast and ovary health.

Most of us are severely iodine deficient unless we live in Japan and have a diet rich in seaweed. There is very little breast cancer in Japan due to the high levels of seaweed consumed, it is only when Japanese women emmigrate that their breast cancer rates increase.
I suggest that you must now source your seaweed from closer to home as you do not want to risk the possibility of ingesting radioactive products. It is time to make your own miso soup/kelp pepper from locally sourced product.

I am lucky enough to live by the sea so make my own kelp pepper which I add to most all of our cooking and the children don’t even know it is in their food!
Head down to the beach at the turn of the tide, or anytime if you can reach fresh seaweed easily. The type of seaweed you are looking for is giant kelp (this is the kind that has the tassles with round bits attached – the ones you used to pop when you were children – with flat sheets of seaweed, google giant kelp for an image), I think you can use all sorts but this is extremetly nutritious and the variety found in New Zealand waters is particularly rich in minerals.
The fresher the better, rinse well in fresh water and dry.
I have tried drying in the oven, on the washing line, laying flat and in the dehydrator. The seaweed dries very quickly and I have found that the dehydrator is the quickest and easiest. You can harvest loads as it dries up to nothing.
When dry put it in the blender part of the food processor and process for ages. It will eventually become like pepper and be ready for use. It is very concentrated and so you do not need much. Just sprinkle onto food or into cooking. There are quite a few recipes from renowned chefs available on the internet.
This will ensure THYROID health.

If you have not done this, when we are finally told of the radioactive contamination there is something you can do to save yourself – drink diluted (1/4 teaspoon) Baking Soda as it has the ability to attract the radioactive iodine molecules (that are not already attached to the thyroid) and take them straight to the kidneys for elimination from the body.
Stocking up on seaweed and bicarbonate of soda could be the the best thing to do – be proactive.

Aromatherapy & Essential Oils.


DID YOU KNOW???  The ‘group’ of people who were least affected by the Bubonic Plague in London where those that worked in the silk glove and scarf factory….. and you know why…….

The silk was imported by ship from India where it was impregnated with Essential Oils to prevent to rotting on the long trip.  As the factory workers handled the impregnated silk they inhaled the ant bacterial and anti fungal properties of the oils  which protected them and cleansed the air they breathed.

How wonderful and truly inspiring oils are. As the blogs progress I will be discussing different oils and their uses. I would love your feedback and stories/experiences you have had with different oils

More snippets to come…..
