Thoughts on the world, homeopathy, mindfulness and food...
A collection of blog posts - feel free to respond with your thoughts and comments - I love to have feedback - thank you!
So just time for a quick waffle tonight before I grab the hula hoop and get spinning...
I was up against a time challenge today with trying frantically to finish my sister's birthday pressie (for Tuesday) and being that Ruthie was here today before heading home I pressed on regardless - knitting during homework time, through breakfast, lunch and during our walk to my parents. Earlier in the day, I was there, at about another 20cm to go, when I got the feeling it was just never going to get done and muttered similar. To get the comeback of 'If you just believe in yourself mum, you can do it'. And do it I did. My sister's headed back to Manchester with her burnt orange, oversized beanie, as ordered on Wednesday afternoon when I requested her birthday requests.
So this week I'm just going to carry on believing and letting the magic happen... Here's to a brilliant week full of belief, love and joy.
With love and light,
So worth doing - get out there and do something different. Go for a dawn run, hell stay up and have a dawn run before you go to bed. Enjoy. Appreciate. Love. Find joy in the little things.
So tempting to stay in bed this morning all snuggled up and cosy. But I got off my ass and went for a run. Which I'm going to have to do a bit more of too if I'm off half marathoning. I'm opting for Blackpool half marathon (it's supposed to be flat - and being in April gives me training time) - my friend who has inspired me to get on and do one is doing the Romeo and Juliet half marathon in Verona, Italy. If you'd like to sponsor her (I'm not fundraising for this one - although I am for the Santa Fun Run next week and my Olympic distance Tri later in the year) then please do so here.
Thanks for watching. What're you waiting for? Get off your ass and find out how beautiful it is. Your ass and the gorgeous world we live in.
Isla and I have decided that we're going to do the Skipton Santa Fun Run as a fundraising event for Homeopathy for Health in Africa. The date, co-incidentally, of the fun run is that of World AIDS Day and the Tanzanian NGO does most of it's work with people who have HIV and AIDS. So it felt to make sense to us.
I would love to raise £500 - Isla, who is sometimes a little more ambitious than me - would love to raise more than this. She's gone to sleep tonight full of fundraising ideas to help us to get more. We're apparently off around her school selling wristbands (we do have children's wristbands here so if you'd like one in return for your sponsorship please just let me know).
I would love it if you could sponsor us - even just a little makes a difference (I know it's over said but it's so true)...
Thanks so much,
There’s lots out there and whilst this isn’t exhaustive I’ve hoped to provide a brief overview on several of the available options as well as some more detailed information around twitter in particular.
I think with all social media (or interactions generally), it’s important to remember that you’re a person with a personality that people are drawn to. Sometimes it’s easy to get into quoting lots of facts, firing out information and whilst I think this is great and there’s a time and a place for it, sometimes too people want to see a little bit of who you are. Maybe not what you had for tea (unless you’re promoting healthy food as part of your business), that you’ve just hit your thumb with a hammer (or maybe so if you’re combining it with an arnica mention) – I’m sure you get the drift though – pertinent, relevant posts, coming from you as a person not as an automaton. That said, facts are great and if you’re starting out for the first time on social media, sharing facts on homeopathy can be a brilliant way to gain confidence as you find your way through it.
My main social media presence is through blogging, alongside facebook and twitter for my homeopathy business, although I do have a LinkedIn page, pinterest page and Google+ account. I also use Instagram (which is largely general health/outdoors/exercise/wellbeing based) and YouTube (for the foodie side of my business). I have experimented with various managing tools so hope to share some of my thoughts here. There are no hard and fast rules and I think the best way is often to jump in and find your feet, but hopefully some guidance may help with the jumping in process!
You don’t need to use all of these mentioned (and the other hundreds out there I’ve not mentioned or even discovered) – I think it’s probably worth picking 2-3 that you like the feel of and getting used to them. Personally my favourites are using the blog on my website, facebook and twitter. The website and facebook definitely work well in terms of attracting new business for me, and twitter I see as a different tool – more about sharing information in the homeopathy world. The more people who know about us and what we do then the more business we’ll attract in the long run.
Blogging – using a webpage as an online journal – as an example I tend to post mindfulness /nutrition/homeopathy thoughts. Keep it relevant(ish) to your business, but here I think you can really let your personality shine. You’re not bound by space, you can make it as pretty as you like by adding pictures/diagrams, and you can be you. You may have an ability to add a blog within your website, or you may wish to set up an external blog site if not. I used to use blogger for this, and likewise wordpress is very popular. If you do have the facility built into your website this is great to use as traffic directed to posts may well then check out the rest of your site and lead to business generated from here. Blog posts can be shared using the other social media tools.
Facebook – I use as a personal page (although I do maintain a more work-based persona on this too) and do interact with friends/allow photos to be shared - I am cautious though who I allow to be my ‘friend’. I set the settings to ‘friends only’ and share the information with the people in my group there only. I do have clients who are my ‘friends’ on facebook and this is a decision everyone has to make for themselves – but would say I have gained business this way and it works well for me. However just to note, on a friend’s pages (not a therapist) I’ve seen negative comments about their work/clients which did make me think – you never know who’s friends with who and if you’re out there on a public forum I think it’s important to be friendly, approachable and not moan about your work.
Facebook business page – if you’re a facebook user then this is really great to have. It can be ‘liked’ by others outside your circle of friends and allows more people to find you. Also if you’re posting more work stuff then you’re not driving your friends mad – who may just love you but not homeopathy. It’s easy to set up a business page – just go to another business page and on the top right hand side you’ll see ‘create page’. Follow the instructions and you’re away. I try to post healthy living/nutrition/homeopathy articles, information and links and tend to aim for 1-2 posts a day. What you want to post depends on what you do – but the theme – to be informative and approachable whilst sharing and to do it in a friendly, not lecturing way is a good start I feel.
Twitter – works in real time, so whilst facebook posts hang around on people’s ‘newsfeeds’, on twitter someone will only see the last 20 minutes or so of tweets in their twitter feed. I think you can share more posts a day if you like to do so here without overwhelming people. Twitter can be a brilliant tool – to share information from others, to share your own information and to connect with other homeopaths and local businesses.
In order to build up a presence it’s worth posting some relevant posts (tweets) first and ensuring you’ve completed your profile (I tend not to follow anyone who doesn’t have their profile information on). Then look at other twitter users similar to yourself as well as local businesses/people to you, and follow the ones that you’re interested in. Often people follow back so follow lots of people to start to build up your following.
Twitter is very transparent – everyone can see who you follow and see your tweets. However this has a great benefit in terms of joining in conversations – I know of people who’ve gained business from something as simple as tweeting over the program they’re watching and there’s been a connection with some of their followers. The point though does also come with a degree of caution. Do be aware you’re ‘out there’ and behave in the relevant manner that you’d like to show to clients/others.
Tweet regularly – I aim to spend around 5-10 minutes a day retweeting/tweeting posts. I really like retweets – I think it’s a great way to get behind each other, supporting each other and the information is there already – we don’t need to reinvent the wheel. Thank people for re-tweeting your posts – it’s great to be polite but also means you’re doing more on twitter and get noticed more – your following will grow. I am very passionate about homeopaths supporting each other – especially on twitter which is such a public forum for us. There’s lots we can do to increase the sharing of knowledge and I think retweeting posts by other homeopaths is a great way to do this. For example if I share a post with my 1500 followers, one of them shares it with their 2000 followers and one of them shares with their 500 or so followers, it’s suddenly reached far more than I ever thought of initially. The skeptic posts seem to be the top retweeted #homeopathy (adding hashtags mean the posts comes up in a search of that word) posts and we could easily change this if we work together a little more.
There are of course, skeptics present on twitter and I would say not to be concerned generally about skeptic activity. There may sometimes be the odd negative response. My action is generally always the same. I never interact – ultimately they are unlikely to be wanting an intelligent conversation, or to be wanting to be convinced that homeopathy works. I also block that person, which means that I don’t see their tweets and neither do my followers. There are a multitude of ways to deal with it but that’s my tried and tested formula. Personally I have other things I’d prefer to do than to get into a debate (which also just raises their profile views to your followers) and want to be able to use the tool then move on.
Be aware – of who you’re following. There are certain accounts that I’m unsure who is operating them and I prefer to stay away from them. I won’t follow accounts generally who haven’t completed their profile, if they are obviously skeptic run, or if I’m just a little unsure. Again, everyone can see who you follow so I prefer not to promote who I don’t trust.
Tweets are short – at just 140 characters it can sometimes be a challenge to make sure you get your full message across. Be concise. You can share longer links on your tweets and twitter automatically shortens this for you.
TweetDeck, Social Oomph, Hoot Suite, Buffer all provide assistance with managing your twitter account. You can schedule tweets so that twitter users (some also work with facebook/LinkedIn/others too) don’t get bombarded with tweets if you’re on a retweeting/posting mission. My personal preference is to use social media without an external tool but I really think it depends on your preference – others like to spend time ‘loading up’ posts so they know they’ll be heading out over the next day/week/month without them having to think about it. So check out the options, have a play and see what makes life easiest for you. If you’re away for a while it can be great to have activity occurring on your account without you having to do anything. You can use multiple posts across the forums which is an option if you’re really busy. On the whole though, I believe the various forums attract different styles of use and I don’t generally post the same content.
Tweet Deck – works with just twitter whereas the others work with several of the other social media platforms.
Paper.li enables you to create a newspaper like format, based around the news from other people’s tweets. You can create a ‘daily’ from your account or can custom make your newspaper using your Twitter Lists (collections of tweeters), choose the title of the ‘paper’ and it does the rest, generating a newsletter at the frequency of your choosing. It’s a great way to be posting a regular tweet and good to increase traffic to yours and others’ sites too.
Linked In - This is perceived by many as a more business-focussed social media. I haven’t worked out whether I’ve had any personal benefit from it, although I do use it less significantly than facebook and twitter. Here, similarly to facebook, you can join groups, interact and network. My decision is to have a profile and relevant information here so that people can find me and be directed to my website and contact information, but not to use it very regularly. There are forum groups which can be interesting, and also can be worthwhile posting in some of these to raise awareness that you’re here.
Google+ - was cited at one point as the ‘grown-up face book’. It does have some great features – you can group people together and have different circles of friends/acquaintances so only sharing information with the selected groups. Similarly to Linked In, I have an account with some basic information but have yet to get my head around using it more constructively for work.
Pinterest - is a more visual form of social media. Used largely by women and creates online pinboards which you can attach (‘pin’) sites/pictures of interest. Again I have an account and some basic information but don’t currently use it often. I see it as largely a more craft/design based social media but there are definitely some homeopaths using it well and sharing videos as well as relevant links.
Instagram – For me is more about personal use – I’m a sucker for the effects available to play with on your photos! And it makes it easier for me to get nicely framed shots for the blog posts. I do tend to have an outdoors/health related/healthy food slant on most of the posts on there. And it’s another place to mention your website and give a short bio relating to yourself. In terms of business use I don’t consider it as a part of what I do to promote myself but I feel that it’s important for me to have a fairly professional persona on there.
YouTube – I use it more for the food side of my business than anything else. At the moment I feel that there’s been so much done in terms of media training and getting a great message out there through the 4Homeopathy guys I’m not in a place I wish to go forth and chat on YouTube about homeopathy. That said I may do at some point. It can be a great place to have a chat about your views on life and share them should this be your cup of tea. It took a while for me to get going but I do like it as a forum and find it directs some web traffic my way too.
I hope you can see that whatever your style there may well be a social media platform to suit you. You don’t have to use them all. And if you don’t use any? That’s perfectly fine too. However if your practice could be busier then it’s worth remembering that some of these ways can be great to attract new people, remind clients that you’re still there and help to spread the word generally about this wonderful business that we’re all involved in.

Just my final thoughts on the matter:
Come and play out – enjoy it, connect with other homeopaths and health care professionals, find out about something new. I think what 4 Homeopathy are doing is fantastic and having the organisations to working together from the top down is fabulous – let’s get out there, support them and help out from the bottom up too.
I think this is maybe one that everyone should watch. I do believe children can be more sensitive to many things than us adults, but I don't believe that they're vastly different. Following from the research presented here I think it would be fair to propose that businesses may be more productive, prisons more peaceful and people happier generally.
The research here though is around children and party food. Two groups of children were presented with differing foods - one traditional party fare (yellows) and the other a table filled with wholemeal sandwiches, fruits and fresh veggies (blues). They were then encouraged to play party games and observed during this process.
Rating 6 behaviours on severity scales gave dramatic results. To share a few here:
The healthy food group showed no incidents of 'mean' behaviour, 8 of physical aggression and 30 of hyperactivity - in total with the other assessed areas, 120 incidents of 'bad' behaviour.
In comparison, the party food group showed 69 incidents of 'mean' behaviour, 63 of physical aggression, 163 of hyperactivity and, again, in total with the other areas, 720 incidents of 'bad' behaviour.
I'm struggling a little with the terminology but that be said, the figures are incredibly illuminating. It was noted that the healthy food group did “48% better in the games overall”. This is clearly not an insignificant difference.
But without further talk from me - please have a watch. The Food Hospital on Channel Four Investigates Party Food.
Conclusions are not firmly given - is it the additives or is it the lack of nutrients? In my view, it also has to relate to individual susceptibility. However whatever the reason, the results are in. Traditional party food swapped for a more whole food approach appears to promote better concentration, more amenable play and calmer children who can co-operate better. The implications of this could be far reaching.
It was lovely and thought provoking to come across this in a message from one of my Dynamis graduate friends this morning.
"If like the Celtic people we revered the rivers we would prioritise this sacred knowledge and curtail the attempts of any that sought to pollute the rivers. If like the Nordic people we believed the souls of our ancestors lived in the trees, this connection would make mass deforestation anathema. If like the native people of America we believed God was in the soil what would our intuitive response be to the implementation of fracking?" Russell Brand
And obviously I'm counting down the days til I go to see The Messiah Complex in Bradford! Little bit excited that we're on the guest list... He has, of course, been sent a copy of our 2014 Homeopathy for Health in Africa calendar.
I just discovered it's World Diabetes Day today. I wasn't entirely sure what the purpose of it was so googled it and found the International Diabetes Federation with a picture of lots of people and emblazoned across them the slogan 'Let's Celebrate'. Which seemed, at least to me, to be a little odd. Let's celebrate that we are experiencing unprecedented growth in a serious condition? Let's celebrate that due to the number of children getting diabetes the label 'Adult Onset Diabetes' has been dropped and now is called Type 2 Diabetes?
So I looked further and found the following 4 key messages of the 2013 campaign:
'There is substantial evidence that achieving a healthy body weight and moderate physical activity can help prevent the development of type 2 diabetes. In primary prevention there is an important role for the diabetes educator to help people understand the risks and set realistic goals to improve health. IDF recommends a goal of at least 30 minutes of daily exercise, such as brisk walking, swimming, cycling or dancing. Regular walking for at least 30 minutes per day, for example, has been shown to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes by 35-40%.'
But it still felt pretty woolly to me. What if though there was a way to reverse Type 2 diabetes and to never get it in the first place? Would you want to know about that? If it was of no greater cost than your usual shopping bill, of no greater hassle than simply cooking your meals? And surely you'd want the International Diabetes Federation to tell you about it? I would anyway. I'd want them to be shouting it from the roof tops. And, not that I want to fly in the face of medical convention (well OK I'm alright about that really I suppose) - what if there was a way that someone with Type 1 diabetes could be no longer reliant on insulin? Surely that would make front page news??
It seems not. But research would suggest that there is a way. There is study after study demonstrating that patients with Type 2 diabetes who are dependent on insulin can relieve that dependency by the simple adoption of a whole food, plant based diet. I have read studies of Type 1 diabetes been affected positively and have heard of several people becoming no longer insulin dependent. Not everyone - although nearly everyone was able to significantly reduce their insulin dose.
And why are the IDF not stood on the rooftops? I can only imagine that the influence of the food industry is too huge. And so I suggest people could take it into their own hands, take back control of their own health and be your own doctor. Use the diagnostic skills that you need to use - work under the guidance of your doctor but try out eating plant based, minimal oils and whole foods. It might well surprise you more than you'd ever expected.
I do want to stress that last point again. Do work with the guidance of your doctor. Changes can be fast and it's important to be aware of your blood sugar levels so you're acting appropriately with medication that you may already be taking.
You never, ever know where it might lead you. About 20 months ago my good friend Amber asked me if I'd like to do the Great North Swim. Well, knowing that there's THINGS that live in Windermere, knowing full well it's not hot (no volcanic springs in the Lake District apparently) then I thought I knew the answer. Going to bed and asking to dream about the right thing to do left me with further knowing the next morning. I'd dreamt about me standing on the bank, holding her children's hands and watching her swim in. That was enough for me. So I did the sensible thing and said no.
But then she asked again. And by that point I'd decided to get on with life, say yes to new and unusual possibilities. So it was harder to say no, and I didn't. I got on and joined our local triathlon club and started training in a local lake. Which was a challenge in itself. It was cold, there were fish (sometimes you'd even see a dead one) and it was murky water. Plus I was being told what to do. Which I'm not very good with! Anyway to cut a long story short I did a mile swim with Amber and raised £500 or so for Homeopathy for Health in Africa. Having joined the Triathlon club I continued to train with them throughout 2012 and watched the Olympic Women's Tri with them. Our chairman recommended Chrissie Wellington's autobiography which I duly read, then went on to read more Tri texts finally chancing upon Scott Jurek's Eat and Run. Which I would say changed my life. I went on as a result of that to adopt a Whole Food, Plant Based (WFPB) diet, study a diploma in Nutrition as well as look further at WFPB eating, and in the end adopted a raw vegan diet for myself (which I love!).
So I dare you - you never know where it might take you... Enjoy the ride!
I like the idea that we can be responsible for our own health. Even if only a little bit. We can make choices – organic or standard, veggie or meat, to enquire further or to accept what we’re told. One of the issues with the conventional medical model is that some of that can appear to have been taken away from us. We’re part of a procession to be prodded, poked, cut and healed in someone else’s way. I’m not saying this is wrong, or to go against convention, but to take some power back too along the way.
There are choices we can make that can enhance our health. We can support ourselves with listening therapies, taking time out for a massage to complement our wellbeing, or even make simple food choices.
I’m here today to talk a bit about food. It’s something we’re all deeply involved in – and can be used to help our bodies help themselves. We can set up a situation where we’re able to assist in providing healthy conditions for healing to happen. I don’t believe that nutrition heals, chemotherapy heals or homeopathy heals. Our bodies heal themselves – and what we can do is help to provide the basis for them to do this from.
I decided to switch my diet earlier this year to a whole food, plant based, nearly 100% raw food diet – really as a bit of an experiment, but also with the knowing that if I had been given a serious diagnosis of illness this is the way that I would eat. I’m not going to suggest that everyone goes 100% raw – although it can be a great way to eat.
However there is increasing and strong evidence around animal based foods causing detriment to our health. My personal belief is that no one should be consuming milk (known to contain an incredibly potent cancer promoter), eggs (coming in about second behind milk), meat or fish if they’d like to improve their health in one quick and easy step.
Studies around animal based proteins have shown that consuming more than 10% of your diet from animal based proteins, the risks of cancer greatly increases. Reverting back to less than this, or ideally cutting it out altogether, has often helped with reducing tumours. Eating at less than 10% for research animals, usually showed no development of cancer growths, even with exposure to known carcinogens.
The adoption of a whole food, plant based diet has been shown in many instances to improve health, reduce risks or relapse and has knock on health benefits – such as reducing risks of heart disease, stroke, obesity, diabetes and certain autoimmune illnesses.
Whole food, plant based? It means no processed (or minimally processed) foods, and from plants. It might sound initially as if it will be restrictive, but realisitically you’re talking about enhancing the one thing that you really need. So even if there is a small sacrifice – and I know just how addictive cheese can be! – it’s potentially a big gain. And ultimately as you discover more you find out just how much choice there really is. My parents have adopted this way of eating and eat more varied meals with more choice than they ever have. Granted, eating out is slightly harder but learning to ask for what you want really helps along the journey.
It doesn’t have to be all raw. It doesn’t have to be raw at all – although I would suggest that you did incorporate more raw foods into your diet. To make gradual changes – depending on your state of health – and cut things out at a manageable rate. Mum, for example got rid of milk one month, cheese the next, overt butter the following one and covert milk products after that. Whilst you’re removing things, remember to add them in. The UK suggests we all eat our 5 a day. I like the Japanese suggestion better – the 17 a day campaign. Japan suggests people eat 13 portions of vegetables and 4 of fruit a day. I probably average around 17-20. So add in an extra fruit snack, more steamed vegetables with your dinner, a big salad at lunch and see how easy it can be to get towards 17 instead of our measly recommended 5 portions.
There’s some brilliant resources out there – it’s great to discover more around the why – I always think anyway. So if you’re a reader then The China Study is a brilliant place to start. If you cook then The China Study Cookbook is fantastic. Forks over Knives (the film, cookbook and book) is worth a mention, as are the books by the Gerson’s around cancer and their work with nutrition. The web is a fabulous resource to have at our finger tips – and I also give recipes, thoughts, tips and more on my blog and within the website under the nutrition tab. I also have a newsletter which you can sign up to and share information on my facebook business page as well as on twitter.
Feel free to get in touch to find out more. I love my work with Homeopathy, Food Intolerance testing and supporting clients to eat a more Whole Food, Plant Based diet and do offer free 15 minute consultations to discover a little more.
If you love and care about homeopathy please read this email and help…
As you may be aware there is an ongoing national campaign to positively promote homeopathy in the UK. Eleven of the largest organisations in UK homeopathy are funding joint projects – the School of Homeopathy is proud to be part of this group.
Together, over the last 18 months we have:
· Researched media and journalists’ approaches to reporting on homeopathy
· Created a strategic positioning statement for homeopathy
· Developed key messages
· Created and circulated a new media code for homeopathy
· Organised media training for a pool of homeopaths
· Developed a media toolkit with stats and facts about homeopathy
· Engaged different PR agencies to help develop and run various campaigns
· Launched a celebrity campaign which was seen by millions (with thanks to the British Homeopathic Association for sharing their campaign with the wider community)
· Worked with Pentagram (one of the world leading brand agencies) to develop an instantly recognisable logo for homeopathy and registered homeopaths
· Created brand values for the new brand and homeopathy
· Sent a brand book explaining the new brand to every registered homeopath in the UK
· Started to build a brand campaign with the new logo
· Created the Find a Homeopath single directory - www.findahomeopath.org.uk
· Launched YouTube videos about homeopathy - www.findahomeopath.org.uk/WhatIsHomeopathy/Movies
· Launched the www.homeopathyevidencecheck.org website in response to the flawed Science & Technology evidence check on homeopathy
· Engaged with the MRHA to defend and protect our access to homeopathic medicines and coordinated a national campaign where every MP was reached by constituents to ensure access to medicines was not restricted
· Engaged with the ASA to defend and protect the way we communicate about homeopathy
· Engaged with the Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies about her out of place inflammatory remarks about homeopathy
As you can see we have already achieved a lot!
Sometimes it is hard to share with you what is going on as most projects are developed and launched behind closed doors, away from vocal critics and trolls. As we learn to work together more efficiently, our campaign will gain strength and momentum.
Right now we are working on:
· Building and developing a strong social media campaign
· A second celebrity campaign (out this week!), see the new images on:
· Patient testimonials – see www.findahomeopath.org.uk/HaveYourSay
· Building upon greater involvement with practising homeopaths, in order to raise public awareness of the potential benefits of homeopathy (this is partly what this email is about).
We also have many exciting new plans for next year and we would like you to help us by doing the following:
1. Embrace the new logo – download the A4 logo poster and put it up wherever you can.
2. Add a link from your site to the find a homeopath website.
3. Spend five minutes filling in the have your say patient testimonial proforma.
4. Ask others to fill in the have your say patient testimonial proforma.
5. If you are on Twitter follow and please tweet about @HomeopathyWFM.
6. If you are on FaceBook, please ‘like’ and link to Homeopathy Worked for Me.
7. If you blog or have a newsletter or newsfeed, share these action points with others.
8. Forward this email to at least 3 people who you know will help support this.
The new logo/brand/website represents one of the group’s greatest achievements to date and it is the strongest vehicle for continued joint projects and patient focused communication. We can now direct patients to one place, we have one brand to link us all together as a profession, and we have one platform from which to communicate publicly. It is the start of a new era in UK homeopathy and we invite everyone to get involved in making it work!
Please help where you can!
