The Listening Centre London

 

The Listening (Voice, Music and Language) Centre, London, established by Ella Williams in 2001, is now in its 11th year of operation.

 

The UK Centre for Living Foods

This client learns to sing with the full frequency of his voice.

 

Situated in North London, The Listening Centre offers Listening Therapy as based on the published works of Professor Alfred A Tomatis, who as long ago as 1957 was honoured by the French Academy of Science with the acknowledgement of the ‘Tomatis Effect’, which reduced to a nutshell is – you can only produce sounds that you are able to hear.  This means that any change in our listening patterns leads to an immediate change in our speech, musical production and related communication skills.

The change in listening pattern is brought about by a course of therapy using the electronic ear, a patented device which filters selected frequencies of sounds. This gives exercise to the muscles within the middle ear that may have lost their responsiveness to certain sounds and patterns. Returning these muscles to peak condition the ear becomes more receptive and following this our production of sound alters as well. The course is intensive and the results can be life-changing.

Unlike vocal coaching and other formal teaching the therapy is not geared towards learning a technique or method, but works gently and without rote learning of any sort. During the sessions clients listen to the music of Mozart and Gregorian chant. Later on clients will chant, sing and speak with their own voice filtered back to them through the electronic ear, and so come to naturally project the fuller sounds that they now perceiving.

Listening therapy has been found to help with learning difficulties that are based in auditory processing and communication – especially dyslexia, dyspraxia, delayed speech, autism and ADHD. Gerard Depardieu has given testimony to Professor Tomatis in helping him overcome stammering and challenging behaviour as a teenager; and as an adult with attention and memory improvement – indeed he credits Tomatis with giving him language.

Women’s Wisdom: Natural Wellness Strategies for the Menopause Years

by Laurel Alexander

Published by Findhorn Press. March 2012. £7.99. ISBN: 978-1-84409-566-7.

Shifts in the mind, body, and spiritual energy can be as much of an opportunity as a challenge; this self-help guide offers sage advice to menopausal women. Erasing the stigma that is often attached to this transitional period, experiences of the Dark Goddess are explored and embraced.

 

Natural Wellness Strategies for the Menopause Cover

 

Alexander highlights an exhaustive list of helpful strategies, including nutrition and herbs, meditations and imagery, flower essences, vibrational healing through quartz crystals, reflexology, and more. Celebrating a reconnection with natural life cycles, thought-provoking suggestions are explored for envisioning this profound change as a rite of passage, and not something to fear.

Alexander guides the reader through the three stages of the menopause: peri-menopause, menopause and post menopause, with clear advice and Wise Women Ways.

“Anxiety, depression, sadness, difficulty concentrating, overreacting to minor upsets, anger, irritability, panic attacks, forgetfulness, and mood swings are all typical of the psychological issues we may face during the menopause years. Some symptoms will be hormone-related, while others are due to the changes in a woman’s life around that time.

“Situations and life events that tend to crowd into a woman’s life in her late 40s and 50s include having to deal with caring for and/or the death of elderly parents, birth of grandchildren, children leaving home, divorce, retirement of self or partner, widowhood, and altered self-image due to aging. Other psychological challenges can include beliefs about no longer being useful, distorted body image, fear of death, feeling unemployable, low self-worth, and a sense of loss related to the end of fertility.”

Honegar Original Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey

 

Honegar Original blends the finest apple cider vinegar with pure honey to create a delectably drinkable tonic reputed to have many health boosting benefits, including the relief of joint related pains and symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism, as well as assisting with digestion, promoting weight loss and maintaining the body’s natural balance.

 

Honegar Low Res

 

Based on a traditional folk recipe passed from generation to generation, the unique honey-based formulation was discovered by the late Dr DeForest Clinton Jarvis, an American physician best known for his work in the area of folk medicine, who became convinced of the remedy’s health benefits while working among farming communities in Vermont, USA.

His observations led to the preparation of the original Honegar recipe, following which Dr Jarvis devoted his work to investigating the uses for Honegar, and researching its benefits for promoting good health and wellbeing. More than 50 years on, Honegar has an international following, with devotees including Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who swears by the preparation to keep arthritis at bay.

Renowned for its natural antiseptic, soothing and cleansing properties, and packed with amino acids, trace elements, calcium, potassium and iron, honey has long been popular as a high energy health food.  Cider vinegar has been valued for its medicinal properties since 3000BC, when the Egyptians reputedly used it to treat a variety of health ailments, and as a tonic to aid weight loss.

Make Your Own Aphrodisiacs

by Julie Bruton Seal & Matthew Seal

Published by Merlin Unwin Books. 2012. Hardback. £7.99. ISBN: 978 1 906122 33 1.

 

Cover Make your own Aphrodisiacs

 

Aphrodisiacs take their name from Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love. They have been used to stimulate desire for millennia, concocted from spices, herbs, fruit and flowers by poets, lovers, Queens and warriors from every corner of the globe.

Authors Julie and Matthew Bruton-Seal, experienced professional herbalists, have written self-help bestsellers Kitchen Medicine and Hedgerow Medicine – now they turn their thoughts to romance.

Here are their beautifully-photographed recipes for        

  • Erotic food
  • Sensual oils and potions
  • Seductive scents and
  • Desirous drinks

The book covers plant medicine in great detail and includes herbs from all over the world.  It is fascinating to read about local favourite remedies in different cultures and also how traditional dessert recipes for romantic dinners are based on their aphrodisiac qualities.  It seems we’ve been onto something for a long time with the wide popularity of chocolate, almonds, figs, and vanilla.  Savoury recipes are not excluded either and there are lots of good ideas on how to include chilli, cardamom, nutmeg and oats in both food and drink.

Aromatherapists are well aware of the complex, sensual and powerful effects of the absolute oils of rose, jasmine and neroli and these are looked at in some detail with lovely ideas for recipes and massage blends.

    High Risk Oesophageal Cancer Gene Discovered

    New research from Queen Mary, University of London has uncovered a gene which plays a key role in the development of oesophageal cancer. The researchers studied families who suffer a rare inherited condition making them highly susceptible to the disease and found that a fault in a single gene was responsible. Initial studies suggest that the gene could play a role in the more common, non-inherited form of the disease, revealing a new target for treating this aggressive type of cancer. Oesophageal cancer affects more than 8,000 people each year in the UK and rates are rising.  It is more common in the UK than anywhere else in Europe.

    A French study has confirmed correlation between increased incidence of child leukaemia and the vicinity of nuclear power plants. The International Journal on Cancer published in its January magazine, a new study from France, confirming an earlier German study that the incidence of child leukaemia more than doubles near nuclear power plants for children below the age of 5 living within a 5km radius of nuclear power plants compared to children living further than 20km from a nuclear power plant. The nationwide study was carried out in cooperation with the national child cancer registry of Villejuif, including 2,753 child leukaemia cases diagnosed between 2002 and 2007 and a control group of 30,000. The addresses were geocoded around 19 nuclear power plants.

    Arthritis Research

    Research published in the journal Arthritis Research and Therapy shows that cells from osteoarthritic knees have abnormally shortened telomeres and that the percentage of cells with ultra short telomeres increases the closer to the damaged region within the joint. Telomeres, the very ends of chromosomes become shorter as we age. When a cell divides, it first duplicates its DNA and because the DNA replication machinery fails to get all the way to the end, with each successive cell division, a little bit more is missed. New research is published in BioMed Central’s open access journal Arthritis Research and Therapy.

    Stem Cell Therapy Reverses Diabetes

    Type 1 diabetes is caused by the body’s own immune system attacking its pancreatic islet beta cells and requires daily injections of insulin to regulate the patient’s blood glucose levels. Stem Cell Educator Therapy slowly passes lymphocytes separated from a patient’s blood over immobilized cord blood stem cells (CBSC) from healthy donors. After two to three hours in the device, the re-educated lymphocytes are returned to the patient. The progress of the patients was checked at 4, 12, 24 and 40 weeks after therapy. By 12 weeks after the treatment, all patients who had received the therapy had improved levels of C peptide, a protein fragment made as a by-product of insulin manufacture and can be used to determine how well beta cells are working.

    Anxiety Research

    Many people use ‘anxious’ as a synonym for ‘hypersensitive.’ Now a Tel Aviv University researcher studying neuronal activity has found that their anxiety may actually spring from insensitivity to changes in their environment. Tahl Frenkel, a Ph.D candidate at TAU’s School of Psychological Sciences discovered that anxious study participants weren’t as physiologically sensitive to subtle changes in their environment as less fearful individuals. She reasons that anxious people could have a deficit in their threat evaluation capacities, which are necessary for effective decision-making and fear regulation.

    MS Study

    A new study form researchers at Queen Mary, University of London shows how a particular virus tricks the immune system into triggering inflammation and nerve cell damage in the brain which is known to cause MS. The new study proves the virus is involved in a manner more sophisticated and subtle than previously imagined and may offer new ways to treat or prevent the disease. MS is a neurological condition that affects around 100,000 people in the UK. It can cause vision problems, difficulties walking and fatigue and tends to strike mainly young and middle aged women.

    Weather Forecasting Data to Help Brain Tumour Spread

    An innovative new study published in Biology Direct shows that the mathematical methodology used to assimilate data for weather forecasting could be used to predict the spread of brain tumours. The authors from the Arizona State University and the Barrow Neurological Institute, Arizona, USA wanted to prove that mathematical methods used in weather prediction could be useful in clinical situations, not only with brain cancer, but with other cancers and diseases as well.

    Safer Endoscopic Procedures

    Common endoscopic procedures are very invasive, requiring sedatives and recover time. Now a Tel Aviv University researcher is using the strong magnetic force of an MRI machine to provide a more precise, deliberate and safer procedure. Dr Gabor Kosa of TAU’s School of Mechanical Engineering, has devised a method to guide endoscopic ‘capsules’ on a more precise course through the small intestine to detect difficult to diagnose tumours or wounds, or allow for biopsies or drug delivery. The ability to manipulate the capsule he says, will not only lead to better diagnosis capabilities, but a less invasive and quicker procedure as well.
