Good Mood Food - The Gut-Brain Connection and Why Gut Health Is So Important

Everything we consume has a direct impact on our health. One of the leading causes of digestive issues is poor nutrition, which isn’t exactly what you may think.

“Poor” nutrition does not have to always mean eating loads of processed foods or inordinate amounts of sugar. It can be much more subtle, sneaking into our well-meaning diets through refined sugars, carbohydrates, and additives.

Even a lack of nutritional balance can result in poorer health, which negatively affects one of the most important processes in our body: the gut-brain connection.

What is preventative medicine and how homeopathy can make a difference to your health

Holistic healthcare takes many forms, and one of the most diverse is homeopathy. Homeopathy is a form of alternative medicine that deviates from traditional Western medicine to bring us new pathways for managing our health and wellness. Western medical science tends to adopt a responsive approach — illnesses and health conditions are treated after they arise. But in homeopathy and many other alternative medicine practises, preventative care is a core emphasis.

Preventative health is just as important as responsive healthcare. The difference is that preventative care can be done daily, adjusted to suit your lifestyle, and support you no matter what paths you take on your wellness journey.

Seity Sessions - Reflexology Review with Anabel Cutler

Just like the feet, the face provides a map to read what is happening within the body's internal organs, central nervous system and neuro-biological system. Points such as the temples and under the eyes all link to our other organs and body flows e.g. thyroid, spine, pituitary, kidneys lungs and even (as my belly sounds can attest to) our digestive system. I would recommend Reflexology, Reiki and Crystal Healing with Anabel long before you reach burn out, but for anyone wanting to reconnect with themselves and enjoy a time and space purely dedicated to themselves and their wellbeing.

In the years that followed, Anna explored other therapeutic practices, such as massage and shiatsu, before deciding eight years ago to make reflexology her primary profession.
