FundRaising by CCK Support  – In Memory of Kate Arnold 11.3.1973 - 26.6.2018

CCK Support was founded by a small group of people, all working in care and all feeling that they could do better! Kate was one of those founding members and progressed to become one of the Registered Managers, and became the face of CCK the people's person.

She was instrumental in helping to set up CCK Support Ltd and always maintained her hands-on approach with our Service Users. She obtained the love and respect from the service users and staff alike. Always fair in her approach and always helping above and beyond wherever she could. Kate had a vision and a passion to find ways of making people's lives of all disabilities that much brighter and had a genuine care for their partners, carers, family members and others.


Kate Arnold

On the 14th June 2018, Kate was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and passed away on 26th June 2018 in the prime of her life, leaving her family and friends devastated. A Tribute Obituary to Kate Arnold was published in Positive Health PH Online Issue 248. We at CCK Support would like to do something in her memory, to continue to help people in her name, to reflect on what a special person she really was.

Kate understood the forever increasing stretch of time and money on the local authorities to provide and pay for care in the community, therefore, CCK Support are driven to continue with Kate's legacy and dream to put money back into our local communities by setting up fundraising in her name, and would like to invite everyone to join in with our fund raising schemes to raise money to put towards this foundation to provide respite care.

Most people will know somebody who suffers from some form of Mental Health condition, Physical Disability, Dementia etc.  Our idea is to be able to make a difference no matter how big or small by giving back to our service user's and others in our local communities by providing a respite service by way of a couple of hours or more sit in service, an overnight stay, a day out somewhere, food bank, clothing, the list is endless, but whatever it might take to make a difference in someone's lives and this will be paid for by the money we raise.

We'd also like to donate money to help the charity "Bloodwise". This is a charity that researches and helps people with blood cancer, the third biggest cancer in the UK. We are aiming to set up various sponsorships and events, with family, friends, clients and anybody who would like to be involved, to raise money not only for "Bloodwise" but in the hope that the "Kate Arnold Foundation" will become fully formed to support our local communities in respite care. A group of family and colleagues including Kate’s daughter Shelby Partridge is taking on a Race for Life Pretty Muddy – Margate, 20 July.

Clare G Harvey Working with CBDa 10x Pure and Flower Essences

Combining the different therapeutic aspects of Plants and flowers of the nature kingdom, whether it’s the roots, leaves, or flowers, despite whatever extraction method is used to obtain the therapeutic value, can be beneficial to the human body and create an overall synergy. When medical cannabis (Hemp), ancient plant used by the Egyptians as a staple medicine as mentioned in The Ebers Papyrus (c. 1550 BC) to alleviate pain, inflammation as the result of diseases and injuries and for depression in women makes a reappearance after years of suppression, one can only be a delighted.

It’s also become clear that not all CBD is equal so it’s important to discover a CBD oil that has proven to protect CBDa (Cannabidiolic acid) during the extraction/heating process, CBDa is the precursor to CBD which activates the human systems in the exact same pathways but with the added plus of being much “purer.” and cleaner in the sense that there is no combustion involved, solvents, and toxic residue, and is also considered to be the most healing part of the plant! Early research suggests that in its raw form the compounds in cannabis/hemp leaves and buds are  loaded with a non-psychoactive, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer nutrient compounds that are proving to be a miracle ‘superfood’ capable of preventing and reversing a host of chronic illnesses & (CBDa), a common constituent in fresh cannabis plants & juicing raw cannabis/hemp  provides powerful CBDa to your body, which is lost in the heating and extraction process as well as the body’s own heat when ingested into the system where it turns into CBD.

A full Spectrum CBD Oil that delivers supercharged, oxygenated, is fast absorbing, with high potency CBD to the target - our Endocannabinoid System - while keeping the CBDa intact is the one to go for. Scientist with expertise in targeted organic biological processes have developed a combination of CBD and CBDa along with all other cannabinoids and micronutrients present in a full Spectrum CBD which protects the CBDa during the extraction/heating process and is organic, non-GMO Hemp converted to water solubility by a patented process. 10X PURE CBD oil is hydrophilic which means it has an affinity with water all its associated molecules, since most of the human body systems are water based it can travel effectively through the body. Being super light it can rapidly penetrate membranes resulting in faster reaction and potency and does seems to be a cut above the rest and has proved to be antibacterial, anti, microbial and pre-biotic with Anti-inflammatory, Arthritis ,Anti-nausea ,Anti-Cancer, Antioxidant, Painkiller, Anti-proliferative.

Combining Flower Essences with CBDa is proving to be mutually enhancing & particularly synergistic due to the patented hydrophilic method of extraction of the CBD making it compatible as Flowers essences are energetic imprints suspended in water. The endocrine balancing & boost effect of the Flower Essence of Australia’s Dynamic Recovery, whose proprietary blend of flower essences seem to lend themselves to this marriage of synergy is  beneficial for the  after- effects of stress and illness when exhaustion can set in and low adrenal energy prohibits recuperation and get going again.

Jonathan Lawrence BA DO Cert Ed; Rosemary Lawrence Dip BFD Cert Clin Hom Cert Ed; Class; Craniosacral Course 2017

Small groups help to facilitate this experience. Turning Point teachers are enthusiastic and experienced practicing therapists who keep their knowledge up to date.

The philosophy of Turning Point encompasses the idea that medicine is an art informed by science. We believe that the conventional materialist paradigm is very much out of date and that scientific knowledge has now reached a point where much of holistic medicine can be incorporated into a new paradigm.

Turning Point courses introduce the concepts of research and encourage students to critically evaluate current information.

  • Craniosacral therapy is based on the relation of the relationship between the structure and function of the body and health. Specific, gentle and skilled manipulation can restore the structure-function relationship supporting the patients’ own homeostatic mechanisms. This non-invasive and safe therapy can be used on patients of all ages from the new-born to the elderly;
    The Level 1 Practitioner Course consists of 7 modules over 8 days including practical tuition. In addition students have to complete a portfolio of cases and complete an exam. Practical skills are assessed during the course. This course is recognised by the CMA;
    Level 2, Advanced CST consists of five modules; Mother/Baby and Reproductive, Visceral, Immune System and Lymphatics; Physical and Emotional Trauma, and Dental, Facial and Cranial Base. Assessment is via Case studies;
    These courses are led By Jonathan Lawrence.
  • Homotoxicology is based on the idea that disease results from toxic load. In modern life we are subject to toxins from a variety of sources. This has the effect of stressing the immune system leading to ill health. Accurate prescribing can help the body to gently detoxify aiding the restoration of homeostasis;
    The remedies used may be single potency homeopathic remedies or combinations of remedies to achieve a specific physiological response;
    There is access to online training via the Society of Homotoxicology
    We provide further courses in Electro Acupuncture According to Voll (EAV). This involves electro-acupuncture assessment of meridians and clinical application of findings;
    We also offer Homeopathic Mesotherapy for suitably qualified doctors and practitioners. A subcutaneous injection technique to support healing;
    These are led by Rosemary Lawrence and Jonathan Lawrence

Extract from the Rose Priory Dialogues

by Allan Armstrong

Published by Imagier Publishing. 2014. Paperback. £8.99. ISBN: 978-1-910216-03-3.

As to the question ‘where is the spirituality in thinking?’ I would ask you to be mindful of who it is that thinks, for I was taught that which thinks is a living spirit made in the image of God. It should be obvious, even to a casual observer that this image isn’t simply a physical representation, but a symbol or metaphor alluding to the divine potential residing at the heart of our being. It is the ideal that we are driven by necessity to express, and the evolutionary imperative ‘to be’ or ‘to become’ is the mechanism by which the unfolding of that divine potential will reach its fullest expression.

Cover Rose Priory Dialogues

In short, within every human being there is a spiritual being seeking to realize its true ‘divine’ nature. You may not realize it but thinking is a divine act, unfortunately; for most of us our thoughts are far from the divine; indeed, they are actuated in the chemistry of the natural world, which stimulates thought at an instinctive level, the articulation of which is the language of the mundane world. I was informed that if I would commune with the Divine then I must rise above the carnal influences of the mundane world, and that can only be achieved by daily purifying mind and soul that they may reflect clearly the light of divine inspiration, and to that end I was taught a metaphysical language to better articulate that inspiration.

It is not greatly appreciated by the novice, never mind armchair mystics, just how much of the spiritual work consists of emancipating the soul from the shackles of that world. Therefore, please understand, no one just ‘does spirituality’, we must become it, but first we must grow out of the mundane world, and that in itself is a most serious undertaking, then we are able to grow in the spiritual life. The first requires courage, effort and will power; the second requires humility and patience, and evolving our thinking is a part of both, because we don’t stop thinking when we realize our spiritual potential.”

Royal Jelly Formulation by Irene Stein – Turning 80 Years Old

by Christopher Pogson

Irene Stein, who turns 80 this year enjoys enviable health - freedom of movement, no aches/ pains and a full healthy head of hair, with no grey and doesn’t need reading glasses – and her brain works faster than many people half her age!

Irene Stein aged 70 years, her mother Sophie Hollander, aged 83 + Irena Products

Irene Stein aged 70 years, her mother Sophie Hollander, aged 83 + Irena Products

Irene Stein Royal Jelly clients describe, how, in their opinion many ailments, medical conditions have been improved and in some instances totally eradicated. The Morris family, of Weymouth, Dorset had their 90 year old mother spring back into life after taking the formulation. Her daughter Avril explains:

“Whenever I find something good I always want to share it with my Mother- she has always been a beautiful woman both physically and in character but was beginning to look old and lose the colour of her eyes because she was 90 years old at that time. To my amazement within a short time the colour of her eyes returned, also a lot of her former beauty. Her nails had always been brittle and breaking but Irene’s Royal Jelly has enabled them to become strong and attractive. We still paint them for her and people admire them.  Her hair had become very thin and even bald on top. She was desperate that she would lose all her hair and would beg the doctor to help her but, of course, he could do nothing. So we decided to buy her a wig as a last resort. She only used it once as by then some fresh hair was beginning to appear and soon - she had a fairly good head of hair again!! The years have gone on and our Mother is 100 years old!! Her mobility is not good and for some time she had memory loss and a certain amount of dementia but always remains sweet and appreciative of all we do for her. A short time ago Irene suggested giving her 2 capfuls of Royal Jelly and I did so. This has brought some extra good results.

“Amazingly she became lucid again and able to express herself clearly once more, to take more interest in visitors and even her memory improved. Before, I would take her out for lunch or to a day centre which she would enjoy but, after an afternoon rest would remember nothing about it. Now she can recall what she ate, where she went etc. A few weeks back she went into a decline; we thought we were going to lose her. The doctor called and said she probably would die that night but she made an amazing come back”

Irene comments on her Formulation; “I have been involved with my unique formulations for over 45 + years with many customers and have seen improvements with various health conditions including hormonal imbalances, (Male and Female), Menopause, mental emotional difficulties, Fertility, hair loss/ re growth and improved condition, as well as the prevention and reversal of the greying process. I consider this to be the most superior Royal Jelly Formulation in the market place today and have worked with two Masters in the field of Complex Homeopathy and plant knowledge.”

You can phone Irene personally on Tel: 07831 641199 / 0208 455 5745 email via  or visit her in Golders Green, London.

First Steps in Developing Your Spiritual Nature

It is said that the early astronauts went out into space as scientists and returned spiritualists .. what could have enabled this shift in their perception? Perspective? Seeing our beautiful blue planet from another angle? Noticing that there are no lines of separation drawn at the so called borders and that we are all simply common passengers on mothership Earth(Gaia). 

I feel that we all have a spiritual side to us, which is sometimes asleep. It’s usually awoken often after a trauma in our lives of some description or fir some perhaps a kundalini rising experience.

First Steps in Developing Your Spiritual Nature

My personal “wake up” call was reading a book called the Celestine Prophecy in the mid-nineties. This reminded me that we are all made of vibrational molecules of energy and that there is a bigger picture other than that which is obvious to the human eyes . 

As vibrational beings , made up of atoms and particles, we feel energy, we know if there is conflict in a room or joy for instance. The impact of the electromagnetic fields of the heart are entirely measurable and reach far beyond the physical body. 

Like Russian nesting dolls our physical body is inside an emotional(feeling) field is inside another of mental (thoughts) and encompassed by a spiritual field. 4 bodies in 4 density’s. This has nothing to do with religion. 

Receiving a treatment like shiatsu, Reiki or a similar healing, practising yoga ,meditation, Tai chi or Qigong may enhance your receptivity and awareness of these 4 energy bodies. 

It often takes a big impact on one of these to “wake us up” to feeling them. This is usually a life changing experience causing us to view things from an entirely new perspective i.e. a divorce, relationship break up, serious illness or loss. 

The truth is simple. We are all connected, what we give out we get back and it’s all about unconditional love forgiveness and kindness to all that lives. “

Iliotibial Band Stretching – Is There Any Point?

Stretching the iliotibial band (ITB) is a popular idea, often prescribed by manual therapists of all disciplines, but it’s hard to do and probably not worth trying anyway.  Firstly, most commonly used stretches to the ITB are mechanically ineffective.  But secondly, it’s doubtful that ITB tightness is the problem to begin with.

Iliotibial Band Stretching – Is There Any Point?

Even if we look at the muscles that may be creating ‘tightness’ within the ITB, it’s almost impossible to self-administer an effective stretch.  The two main muscles that pull on the ITB (and for which the ITB is in effect a tendon) are the tensor fasciae latae (TFL) and the gluteus maximum (GM).

TFL’s main mechanical function is to abduct the leg, so the best direction in which to stretch it therefore is adduction.  But with the other leg immediately in the way, it’s impossible to adduct it sufficiently to create a stretch.  GM’s main mechanical function is to extend the hip joint so to stretch that, we need to move it into flexion.  But most people can flex their hip until their thigh bangs up against their belly without feeling a stretch at all.  So any attempt at stretching isn’t going to elicit results.

But what about using a foam roller, I hear you say.  Who knows where this idea first came from, but it remains a perennial suggestion of personal trainers.  The ITB is really too tough to be stretched.  Even smaller tendons are extremely difficult to elongate.  Look how hard dancers, gymnasts and martial artists have to work to achieve their flexibility.  The ITB is long, massive and attached for most of its length to the side of the femur.  You can probably apply some tension to it, just as TFL and GM are designed to do, but you won’t lengthen it.  Hideous experiments have been carried out on dissected ITBs in the name of science (freezing, heating, machine washing (!) and the application of huge mechanical load) but none has made a clinically significant difference.

So what do we do in cases of ITB syndrome, often referred to as Runner’s Knee?  This can be either acute or chronic.  It can start as one and become the other.  As you’d imagine, there isn’t a quick fix - and this article does not have all the answers.  Manual Therapists have to work into all the structures that the patient can’t (TFL and GM) as well as assessing the patient’s gait mechanics to work out what may have caused the symptoms.  But one thing the treatment won’t involve is the therapist plunging their thumbs deep into the ITB or suggesting the patient undertake hours of painful foam-rolling.

Explore, Expand, Engage: Live a Life Less Ordinary

by Philippa Bottrill

Published by Lotus Publishing. 2019. Paperback. £8.99. ISBN-10: 1913088006 

This book is a collection of inspirational insights and thoughts on how simple it is to live a life that is less ordinary. We all know that what we believe has a huge impact on the life we create for ourselves, but lots of us have no idea how to start making those changes. It takes normal events, ideas and concepts and encourages us to think about them differently.

Explore, Expand, Engage: Live a Life Less Ordinary

The author, Philippa Bottrill, says: “I know that when I began my journey into taking more responsibility for the life I was creating, I would have loved a book that was a gentle introduction to just that. A book that held my hand as I started to explore more about how and why I was repeating the same mistakes. A book that helped show me a way to grow and expand my awareness of how powerful our mindset truly is. And a book that helped me to engage with simple, easy concepts that made sense to me and that I could apply to my life straight away.”

This book is all that - a collection of some of the thoughts and ideas that have brought about consistent, positive changes in all aspects of my life, so that I have and may continue to lead a life less ordinary.'

Philippa is the owner of Balance, a Pilates and well-being studio dedicated to encouraging people to live healthier, happier lives. In addition to being a Pilates teacher, she is also an Advanced Rapid Transformation practitioner, Mindset coach, Soul Realignment practitioner and founder of the Three Es. She has drawn on her twenty years’ experience of working with mind, body and soul to produce this book. Her passion in life is to encourage us all to Explore, Expand, Engage, so that we can all live a life less ordinary.

Herbal Formularies for Health Professionals, Vol 3

by Dr Jill Stansbury, ND

Published by Chelsea Green Publishing. 2019. Hardcover.  $49.95 US /$69.95 CAN /£39.99 UK. ISBN: 978-1-60358-855-3. 


Dr Jill Stansbury offers a master reference tool for herbalists, doctors, and health care professionals focusing on endocrinology.

Herbal Formulations cover

Herbal Formularies for Health Professionals is a five-volume set that serves as a comprehensive, practical reference manual for herbalists, physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals. Dr Jill Stansbury, a leading clinical herbalist in the United States, draws on her decades of experience and her extensive research to provide an unparalleled range of herbal formulas.

Organized by body system, each volume includes hundreds of formulas as well as a materia medica section describing individual herbs with tips on their properties, modes of action, and the specific symptoms each plant best addresses.

The latest Herbal Formularies for Health Professionals, Volume 3 (May 29, 2019) focuses on endocrine systems, including:

  • Formulas and supporting information for treating thyroid disease, adrenal disorders, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome;
  • The female and male reproductive systems covering conditions related to menstruation and PMS, fertility and pregnancy, and the prostate;
  • Herbal formulas and therapies for pelvic inflammatory disease, genital herpes, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, PCOS, uterine fibroids, low libido, erectile dysfunction;
  • The role of herbal medicine in prevention and treatment of reproductive cancers.

Dr Stansbury’s formularies are also a tutorial for budding herbalists on the sophisticated art of fine-tuning an herbal formula for the constitution and overall health condition of an individual patient, rather than prescribing a one-size-fits-all treatment for a basic diagnosis. The text aims to teach by example, helping clinicians develop their own intuition and ability to create effective herbal formulas.

Dr Jill Stansbury is a naturopathic physician with 30 years of clinical experience. She served as the chair of the Botanical Medicine Department of the National University of Natural Medicine for more than 20 years and is now the medical director of Battle Ground Healing Arts in Washington where she also runs an herbal apothecary.
