'One' Yoga Therapy Centre Opens in London

Yoga Biomedical Trust, UK's leading yoga therapy body that promotes scientific research into yoga for the treatment and prevention of medical problems, is proud to announce the opening of One, in September 2010, its new Yoga Centre in Shoreditch, London. One is a unique Yoga Therapy Centre featuring some of the most renown authorities in this field.

One Yoga Therapy Centre

The benefits of yoga therapy - a fusion of deep breathing, invigorating postures and self-help - is gaining credence within the medical community as a complementary therapy for helping with a range of issues, including depression and anxiety, through to fertility, menopause and asthma. Robin Monro, Director of the Yoga Biomedical Trust, believes that yoga therapy is one of the few treatments that genuinely offers a holistic cure: "If you are working on stress for example, and focus on the body alone, you're not addressing the thought patterns that cause it. And if you deal only with the mental side of things, you're ignoring the biochemical and physiological changes that emotional trauma can bring. Yoga therapy addresses both aspects of the problem."

One offers a range of courses including:
  • Yoga for Conception - Effortless exercises acclaimed for their gentle efficacy, which have been specially designed for promoting pelvic awareness and relaxation towards conception;
  • Stress - Yoga brings us back to where we should be by working directly on the nervous system.  When we calm down we are also far more able to face our thoughts, fears and obstacles;
  • Back Pain - Specialized yoga therapy can help most types of low back pain by distinguishing between different types and applying appropriate yoga practices and precautions;
  • To support Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, One will offer classes on Yoga for Breast Health, also a specific Yoga for Breast Cancer restorative course.

One Yoga Centre is at 1 Teesdale Street, London E26GF. Please contact One on Tel:  020 7275 8434;

The NLP Conference 12th-14th November 2010

Now in its 20th year, The NLP Conference is an annual 3 day event which attracts some of the best national and international speakers, trainers and authors from the field of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

NLP Conference Banner

NLP looks at the way our minds are programmed - programming that is the product of all our experiences, beliefs and those who have influenced us. It is they way we are made up - the way we look at the world.

Sometimes this programming contains "bugs" or doesn't work in the way we (or those we care for) want it to. NLP contains a number of techniques that allows us to fix these bugs, eliminating limiting beliefs, for example, or curing phobias.

Speakers include
Janey Lee Grace
Shelle Rose Charvet
Michael Hall
Ian McDermott
Andrew Austin
Caitlin Walker
Nick Owen
Robert Fletcher
Sue Knight
Nick Kemp
Iain McGilchrist
Lisa Wake
Pamela Gawler-Wright
Jeremy Lazarus

All standards of experience are catered for from complete beginners to seasoned professionals who have been using NLP for decades. Presentations cover subjects as diverse as health, teaching and training, therapy, personal development and business and leadership. All disciplines come together to learn and share best practice.

The NLP Conference is  a wonderful opportunity to catch up with the latest developments and applications of NLP and network with hundreds of like minded people keen to improve their lives and the lives of those they care for.

Revolutionary Programme: Makeover to be Naturally Slim

Jane was an inactive and overweight serial dieter. Yet she gave up dieting, found peace with food, shed 3 stones and entered her first marathon a year later. How is it possible that she achieved all that?

Happy Weight Logo

Jane Learned that Diets don't Work

There are a number of physiological and psychological reasons for that. One of those is that when we cut calories by a certain amount, the metabolism slows. Then when we resume normal eating and increase our energy intake, the body has become more economical in how it uses and stores that energy. We end up even fatter than we were before we dieted.

Jane Followed the 5 Stages of the Happyweight Programme

She experienced being a natural balanced eater again. She ate when hungry and stopped non-hunger eating. She learned methods to keep her motivated to continue increasing her fitness over time. She learned some brilliant psychological skills that helped her think slim and manage her emotions more effectively, thus overcoming emotional eating.  She also became empowered with scientific nutritional knowledge about fat loss as well as anti-ageing. She understood how food could balance her brain, hormones and digestive system too and that this was also important for her long-term aims and goals.

Courses - there are a number of options - are Delivered by Judy Price, the Founder
  • The 30 day home study programme which has 6 CDs and an excellent and inspiring manual of exercises for you to work through;
  • Personal coaching and therapy by phone or in person. Judy is a therapist and trained in eating disorders as well as a dieting veteran;

Who am I? Why does my life feel like it's a mess? What is my true purpose?

The answers to these questions and others you may be seeking are to be found here, just a heartbeat away, in Russell Feingold's book Heart Wisdom: Your Transformational Guide to Joyful Living and Loving, created for those times when things positively, absolutely have to change.

Feingold has created a guide, filled with laser like, original techniques that astutely steer the reader back to his or her authentic self. As well as candidly sharing himself and his own experiences, Feingold includes in Heart Wisdom individual examples taken from his practice. He shows how his techniques can cut stress, tension and fear (which Feingold believes to be one of our biggest issues) and help the reader gain new perspective on old problems.

Along with his 9 ways to stay connected to the heart, Heart Wisdom also contains fascinating facts about the human heart, which he uses effectively throughout. Feingold writes with clarity, wisdom and compassion for the reader, who you feel he genuinely wants to assist. Heart Wisdom is about finding harmony with the true self and consequently making new decisions, creating positive relationships, fulfilling careers, happy family life and good health; finally becoming congruent with who we really are, rather than who we think we should, or would like to be. Russell Feingold intuitively understands that the heart is the gateway to the soul.

Hibiscus On The Pulse - High Blood Pressure Remedy

Research from the American Heart Association published in 2009 revealed that drinking hibiscus tea lowered blood pressure in a group of pre-hypertensive and mildly hypertensive adults. Nutrition scientist Diane McKay led the study, which was part funded by the US Department of Agriculture.

Hibiscus On The Pulse - High Blood Pressure Remedy

In a clinical trial, McKay tested 65 volunteers between the ages of 30 and 70, whose systolic blood pressure was 120-150mmHg and whose diastolic blood pressure was 95mmHg or less at the start of the study. For six weeks, half the group drank three cups of hibiscus tea a day, while the other drank a placebo beverage containing artificial hibiscus flavouring and colour.

Volunteers who drank hibiscus tea had a 7.2 point drop in their systolic blood pressure, compared to a 1.3 point drop in volunteers who drank the placebo beverage. In those with mean systolic blood pressure over 129mmHg, the reduction was nearly 14mmHg. The study's author noted that hibiscus flowers contain anthocyanins, natural antioxidants found in plants, which help improve capillary function and strengthen collagen.

Simply Hibi is the super juice that contains 17 times more anthocyanins than cranberry and other juice drinks. Antioxidant-rich Simply Hibi is a 100% natural, hibiscus infusion drink that provides an effective natural remedy for high blood pressure. Its composition of 85% hibiscus-infused water and 15% grape juice concentrate ensures a rich berry flavour with no added artificial colourings or preservatives.

Further Information
Simply Hibi is available in selected Waitrose and Sainsbury's stores, as well as Holland & Barrett health food stores. It is available in one-litre tetra cartons with an MRRP of £1.39. To discover more about the drink, visit  

The Netical Patch™

The Netical Patch™ was developed by Don Scott who suffered many years from osteoarthritis which caused unbelievable pain. He couldn't walk at times and was often confined to a wheelchair. The discovery came by accident when Scott was working his farmlands and his tractor stalled. The only way out of the field was to walk; something that he had difficulty with over the years without some kind of support. Wrapping one foot around a club, Scott hobbled through a field of nettles. By the time he reached his residence, he noticed all of his pain was gone.

The Netical Patchâ„¢

This soon led to many years of botanical research and patent of the Netical Patch™. Throughout his research years, Scott applied the nettle patches on people from around the country, including doctors and athletes.

The Netical Patch™ comes in three convenient sizes and can be applied to the main trunk of your body as well as arms, elbows, fingers, legs, knees and toes. The larger size patches can be applied to ankles, heels, the head and throat. The Netical Patch(tm) not only helps relieve aches and discomfort associated with physical injuries or musculoskeletal problems, but also relieves pain of minor burns and helps heal minor cuts.

Made from the extract of the nettle plant (Urtica dioica) the resins are extracted onto a 100 percent cotton cloth. Manufactured by Nettle Farms LLC, the Netical Patch™ is distributed locally through Transdermal Innovations, Inc.

    Study Links Fluoride to Pre-Term Birth and Anaemia in Pregnancy

    Fluorine avoidance reduced anaemia in pregnant women, decreased pre-term births and enhanced babies birth-weight, concludes a leading fluoride expert, AK Susheela and colleagues in a study published in Current Science (May 2010).

    Susheela's team explains that anaemia in pregnancy, which can lead to maternal and infant mortality, continues to plague many countries despite nutritional counselling and maternal iron and folic acid supplementation.

    It's Fine To Lose Weight Fast

    New research indicates that people trying to lose weight should follow a diet programme that slices a large proportion of their unwanted weight right off. The traditional approach to weight-loss has been that a slow, gradual weight loss is more effective in the long term than fast weight loss, but research presented to the International Congress on Obesity in Stockholm earlier this month has kicked that idea into touch.

    Dr Jeroen Barte, a Researcher at the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment in the Netherlands analysed data from 12 different weight-loss studies with over 1,000 participants.

    The programme lasted between ten weeks and one and a half years and all the participants were weighed again at least a year after the programme ended to ascertain how successfully they had kept the weight off. The dieters who had initially lost more weight also ended up with the best long-term results.

    Macrobiotic Diet Potential to Increase Fertility

    It is estimated that as many as one in seven couples are infertile, with up to one in four experiencing difficulties before they do manage to conceive naturally.

    One of the main reasons is that women are leaving it later to become mothers as they choose to pursue a career and lifestyle interests, before deciding to start a family.

    David McCarthy, a Pharmacist with over 25 years experience and owner of believes there are more important considerations. A macrobiotic diet involves eating fresh organic foods, little or no meat, caffeine, alcohol or dairy and plenty of rice, beans and pulses. As this type of diet can help regulate insulin and increase levels of certain hormones, it has a real potential to increase fertility.
