Sound Therapy

Posted by

What do you think of when you read that title? Sitting in a room with specific sounds all around you or actually playing an instrument by yourself or in a setting that’s therapeutic.

This is what I call and use for Sound Therapy. These are my tuning forks – both aluminum and steel forks.

 

 

 

 

I was introduced to Sound Therapy by a British Osteopath at a conference in 2013 and have since incorporated it into my nutrition consultations over the past years. I think I was a bit worried about what my clients would think as it’s quite different to the usual nutrition consultation. Although I can hear when there’s unbalance (call it a trained ear combined with intuition), my clients often can’t. So they put their trust in me to do what I do and wait to see how they feel and what the results are of their session, supplement and remedy testing and now food sensitivity testing.

21 Days to Balance! Day 21

Posted by

Today and the past 20 days have given motivation, inspiration and doable tips that will have the rest of 2013 be your healthiest, positive and balanced year yet. Keep up the daily tasks that had an impact on you and share below what you continue. Thank you for being apart of our 21 Days to Balance Program! We hope you are better for it!

Eat
Plan your meals as you plan your week. The distraction of daily life can lead to disorganization around meal times taking you off track. If weekly meal planning isn’t your thing, at least know the night before what’s on the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner the next day. Get family to contribute ideas so it’s not all on one person (you!). Once everyone knows what’s coming, eating it becomes is longer an issue.

Strengthen

Remember that when you make a decision to change your lifestyle, you are doing just that and for many of us, little eyes are watching. As mother’s, we are creating human beings and modelling how to live and love ourselves. Don’t forget that the next time you want to give up. Set an example and walk the talk!

Balance

Maintain a daily practice. Whether it’s a short meditation, a few postures or a longer sequence, a daily practice will keep you grounded. To keep you coming back to the mat, here’s a complimentary yoga podcast appropriately named Body Balance Yoga.

21 Days to Balance! Day 20

This 21 day program is for YOU! The habits that you create over these 21 days will stay with you for the rest of the year. Each tip won’t take long, but will help you find balance.

Eat

Read ingredient lists of the food, drink and snacks that you buy. The first ingredient on the list is its highest content. The last is the least. Where does sugar fall in the list? Or partially hydrogenated soy oil? High fructose corn syrup? Avoid all if you can.
Strengthen

Look at the big picture and don’t set up unrealistic goals that you will never obtain. You are YOU and you need to support that, nourish that and use what you got to the best of your ability.

Balance
