Health & Wellness 

Pain is one of those things that affects everyone at some point in their life. We are so often encouraged to take pain relief medication such as Panadol or aspirin without really thinking about the possible natural alternatives.

What is pain? How is pain different? How do you get to the underlying reason you have pain? How can you treat pain naturally?

We have some answers. 

Happy reading!
And happy November!

Natural Pain Relief


In 2011, hydrocodone was the most prescribed drug in America. Sometimes, pain medication is necessary. Other times, natural solutions are just as effective, if not more - and they come with no side-effects. The ideal situation is knowing there are options, and not heading straight for a pill because it’s all you think will work. Here are your alternative options to pharmacuetical pain relief. Continue reading...

Treating Pain with Chinese Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine has for thousands of years effectively treated pain in its many forms, from headaches to backache from menstrual pain to arthritis. The basic idea around pain in Chinese medicine is “if the energy (in the acupuncture meridians) doesn’t flow then there is pain and if the energy flows then there is no pain”. continue reading...

Achy All Over & Exhausted? Fibromyalgia Might Be To Blame

Sciatica? Avoid These 3 Exercises Like The Plague


The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest single nerve in your body, running from your lower spine down each leg and ending in each foot. It stems deep down through your buttocks and branches down the back of the leg into the calves and feet.

Sciatica refers to the pain, numbness and other symptoms caused by compression or inflammation of this important nerve, and it’s typically felt along the nerve pathway described. You may also experience weakness and fatigue of your lower body, or restriction of movement and loss of flexibility. The pain can be burning, cramping, tingling or numb. Continue reading..


Tumeric: The Wonder Spice For Inflammation

Certain herbs and spices are known for their anti-inflammatory properties, and tumeric is fast becoming one of the most potent natural agents we have to fight inflammation. Turmeric contains the active ingredient curcumin, which has proven anti-inflammatory properties in conditions such as arthritis, muscle sprains and other injuries.


Acupuncture For Period Pain

In Chinese medicine it is said that the period is a mirror into a woman’s health.Often, menstrual problems are swept under the carpet in our culture. Unfortunately some women maybe prescribed the pill to alleviate their symptoms when we believe this only masks the problem and doesn’t solve it at its core. Often when women cease taking the pill their problems re-emerge and they have to deal with them at the same time as wanting to start a family. Where possible, it’s best to deal with period problems as early as possible in a woman’s life because correcting the root of the imbalance will help their overall health, including fertility, for the future. Research shows that acupuncture reduces period pain by over 50%. Continue reading..
