Birthlight Trust – Holistic Approach to Pregnancy, Birth and Babyhood

The Birthlight Trust educational charity promotes an integrated, holistic approach to pregnancy, birth and babyhood. Its main objective is to enhance well being and enjoyment for parents and their babies before and after birth. The application of simple yoga-based body movements, breathing techniques and relaxation, both on land and in water, has proved beneficial for increasing numbers of parents, professional carers, educators and instructors.


Our charter is contained in the word 'birthlight', in the sense of giving birth lightly, without violence to the baby. Not all women can have a natural birth but it is our aim that all women should have a fulfilling experience of childbirth with the support they need before and after their babies are born. Birthlight also refers to the light and joy that can shine around the birth of every child, a dimension that is often forgotten.
Birthlight's wide range of classes and courses are designed for parents from pre-conception to the third year and continually strive to use the latest research findings in the development of simple but effective movements. Birthlight has over 1,000 certified instructors, offering training in:

The Annie Appleseed Foundation (AAP)

Ann Fonfa was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 1993. Due to her chemical sensitivities, she opted not to take chemotherapy-but she was determined to find some viable alternatives. 


The Annie Appleseed Project (AAP), based in Delray Beach, Florida, was formed in response to the approach that antioxidants can prove useful in conjunction with conventional therapy. The goal of AAP is to provide solid information, advocacy and awareness for people with cancer about complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Although the project began as AAP founder Ann Fonfa's personal quest to get answers about CAM therapies, it has grown to become a nationally recognized organization.

The Annie Appleseed website www.annieappleseedproject.org went online in June, 1999. Content is added on a weekly basis, currently totalling some 8,000 web pages and links. In addition to reports from conferences worldwide, the site posts studies that help explain the benefits of natural and nontoxic substances. More than two million people have visited in the last twelve months, and thousands more have heard lAnn Fonfa speak at meetings around the USA, asking challenging questions that many doctors don't want to hear.

AAP has sponsored two national meetings-"Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Cancer Therapies" – in 2008 and 2009, and has exhibited at 30 other meetings including the American Society for Clinical Oncology, Oncology Nursing Society, Ovarian National Cancer Alliance, Prostate Forum, and American Psychosocial Oncology Society. The 4th Annual Evidence-based Complementary & Alternative Cancer Therapies Conference will be held  March 3-5, 2011 at West Palm Beach, FL.

Dove Clinic: Hayfever and Allergy Relief – the Natural Way
 
As the frosts recede and the plants wake up, many of us rejoice at the coming of spring! But for an increasing number of people the warmer months are tarnished by hay fever symptoms of a runny nose, headaches, itching eyes and tiredness. Hay fever is caused by an immune reaction to pollen that is growing in frequency along with the closely associated conditions of asthma and eczema.

 
So, how can we re-balance our immune system and avoid steroids and anti-histamine tablets? The good news is that nutritional supplements to improve cell-mediated immune function such as 1-3 1-6 beta glucan (as found in Immiflex) and an approach called Neutralization, offer effective, very safe and research-based alternatives.

Neutralization tackles the cause of the problem, whether food intolerance, animal or dust mite allergy, or the pollen reactions in hayfever. A series of dilutions of the specific allergen are tested on the individual until the end-point dilution that switches off the immune response is found. This can then be used for natural ongoing allergy relief, and has been proven effective in many clinical studies.

British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) Conference on Sweeteners:
Thursday 15 April 2010: The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG 

Intense sweeteners have been available as a means of reducing sugar intake for more than a century and have made possible low and no-sugar brands which feature in almost everyone's diet.  Furthermore, they could also be important in helping us to reduce energy intake in the future.


But for some, perceptions of the role and value of intense sweeteners can be somewhat negative. So the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) set out to explore the facts behind the stories and see where low calorie sweeteners fit into today's foodscape.

The objective of this one-day conference is to make available the latest science and research on sweeteners, to explore where these ingredients can be a useful choice in foods and beverages, to review their safety and consider negative perceptions where they exist. The event is designed to appeal to anyone interested in food, nutrition and health and to provide an interactive, scientifically sound and engaging debate.

Panel Discussion
  • Professor Tom Sanders (King's College London);
  • Professor Andrew Renwick (School of Medicine, University of Southampton);
  • Professor Nick Finer (Dept of Medicine, University College London);
  • Catherine Collins (St George's Hospital NHS Trust).
The BNF plan to hold a panel discussion in the afternoon to discuss some of the science behind the headlines about sweeteners and will be taking questions from the audience. This will be an opportunity to discuss issues such as consumer perceptions of intense sweeteners and specific concerns that people may have about their use. They invite delegates to submit questions to the panel in advance (these questions will be read out anonymously); they will also be taking questions on the day.

    The UK's First Online Food Consumption Personality Assessment

    An online assessment tool is now available that will help people to ditch fad diets for good, by offering a new approach to weight loss tailored to individual eating habits and preferences.

    This is likely to be well received given that a new survey of 10,000 Brits found that just 16% of people have managed to achieve sustainable weight loss from going on a diet. The assessment requires people to go through a series of 18 questions indicating the answers that are most and least like them in order to identify their food consumption personality. There are nine different core EATERtypes and the questions are designed to identify a person's primary, secondary and tertiary EATERtype personality.

    On completion of the assessment, people are provided with tailored, details and practical advice on making positive, straight forward and sustainable changes that can be sustained for life.

    Magnetic Resonance Therapy for Osteoporosis

    Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MBST) has been successfully developed and used in Germany and many other countries over the past ten years for conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis. MBST directly targets the cause of these problems - either, the damaged bone or cartilage tissue itself. Highly effective magnetic resonance signals produced by MBST devices, transfer energy to the cartilage or bone tissue, thereby stimulating its regeneration. Successfully treated patients show a significant reduction in pain, an increase in bone density or cartilage growth and increased mobility, all without side effects. Such impressive results have been successfully documented and confirmed in numerous clinical studies.

    With nine million people in the UK with arthritis, its introduction to the UK has been welcomed.

    Neurohormonal Effects of Massage Therapy

    Among the many benefits of Massage Therapy are those related to the body's production and regulation of neurohormones. These are the hormones produced by the nervous system that affect an individual's behaviour and general well-being. It has long been suspected that Massage Therapy offers a number of mood enhancing benefits. Research conducted at the TOUCH Research Institute at the University of Miami has revealed that massage increases the availability of all neurohormones affecting brain chemistry.

    Massage tends to elevate the levels of dopamine which influences fine motor activity such as painting or playing a musical instrument. It affects intuition, inspiration, joy and enthusiasm. Massage can also raise the level of serotonin, which acts to quell irritability and cravings for sex and food.

    Resveratrol - The New HRT?

    Resveratrol is a chemical compound found in certain plants. It is called a phytoalexin because plants naturally produce it as an antibiotic substance to fight both bacteria and fungi. Plants containing Resveratrol include the flesh and skins of grapes, raspberries, mulberries, blueberries and cranberries and can be found in peanuts, certain pine trees and Japanese knotweed.

    According to a report in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, it could be used as a safe alternative to HRT. It has been known for some time that Resveratol is effective in fighting the signs of ageing, but it has now been found to exert weak oestrogen-like activity and is being investigated as a natural alternative to the chemically produced oestrogen provided by HRT.
