Inflammation Reset Protocol

Inflammation Reset Protocol

If your iPhone crashed and stopped working properly, what would you do?

If your computer freezes and slows down, how do you resolve it?

If your car started making funny noises, how would you address that?

You probably wouldn’t think twice about restarting, resetting or servicing them. Well that’s exactly what you are going to do to your whole body! Technology and science have advanced exponentially over the last 100 years, but our genes and cells haven't changed all that much for thousands. Your body just can not keep up with the onslaught of environmental toxins and stress levels you have to endure in this modern age. Persistent attack over time can result in all kinds of physical health conditions, most of which are caused by inflammation. Let me re-iterate; most common health conditions are caused by inflammation. I am here to help you decrease inflammation in your body…

Welcome to the exciting Balanced Performer Inflammation Reset Journey.

Food For The Body, Food For The Soul

Food For The Body, Food For The Soul

I've recently come to terms with giving up striving for health and wellness perfection. When I say recently, I kinda mean just now... today. I had a profound conversation with a dear friend this morning which really hit some deep stuff. I find myself constantly seeking for the new wonder herb, lotion, potion, supplement, food, diet, protocol, scheme, information and whatever else, to save me and bring me into a state of perfect health and happiness. I've been doing it for years. I've tried everything... and for all the time I've been seeking, searching and trying I've been distracted from what it is that I DO have...

Be Kind To Yourself

Be Kind To Yourself

Living a mindful and healthy existence is a life long journey. It's a labyrinth of discovery; thrilling when you enter, a world of excitement and new possibilities. Which way will you choose to go? Left, right, straight or back the way you came? You'll take a wrong and end up lost, confused, dazed and at times hopeless. Then you'll come across something new and wonderful on your journey filling you with hope and inspiration. Maybe you'll stop for a while, camp out, enjoying where you are right now with no need to continue moving forward. Then you'll jump up and begin the voyage of discovery again with new enthusiasm and vigour... 

Time For Change

Time For Change

We are so excited to hear about the marvellous Annemarie Lewis Thomas, principle of The MTA drama college heading a charter for mental health entitled #Time4Change. She is taking big bold steps in the direction of opening up conversations, removing stigma, and offering a knowledge base around mental health in the performing arts. The charter launched in July 2016 and by September of the same year 100 organisations has joined. We are proud to be number 103! 

I spoke to Annemarie about #Time4Change and about her passion for it. This is what she had to say...

An Encouraging Story

An Encouraging Story

A conversation I had this morning with a very dear and close friend of mine imbued me with such hope and excitement and inspiration for the future of medicine and the idea that one day both conventional and natural medicine approaches could see eye to eye...

Do We Really Need Supplements?

Do We Really Need Supplements?

We can no longer get all the vitamins, minerals and nutraceuticals we need from food alone. Mass production and the use of pesticides along with environmental pollution has rendered our soil void of the minerals it was once so abundant in. The fact of the matter is that our food just doesn't contain the very substances we eat it for in the first place...

Aches, Pains, Strains, Cramps... GET RID OF THEM!

I always write from the heart and always write boldly, and I am not going to stop now... 

YOU DO NOT NEED TO LIVE WITH ACHES, PAINS, STRAINS, CRAMPS OR ANY OTHER KIND OF BODILY DISCOMFORT

I am talking back pain of any kind. Yes, even lower back pain which is so incredibly common. I am talking neck pain, shoulder tension, frozen shoulder, hip pain, knee discomfort...

Oh, just to re-iterate...

How To Be A Healthy Body Worker

How To Be A Healthy Body Worker

I can think of very few jobs that require more physical strength, mental focus and emotional resilience than being a dancer. In my clinic I specialise in helping performers deal with physical health issues and emotional stress. Over time one starts to notice patterns in behaviour, symptoms and action that resolves complications. Here I'd like to share my most effective advice to help you become more energised, healthier, happier and ultimately better dancers. 

Us vs Them?

Us vs Them?

All to often I witness (and get involved with, it has to be said) online debates of an ‘Us VS Them’ nature. I am talking about the classic ‘conventional medicine VS holistic medicine’ debate so often witnessed on energy medicine pages, health groups or even on personal Facebook pages. Just recently I was part of an endless debate on the subject of vaccines, a topic that greatly divides. The debate consisted of evenly balanced for and against camps. I’ve noticed...

The Key To Physical Health

The Key To Physical Health

I'll start as I mean to go on: strong and to the point

THE KEY TO PHYSICAL HEALTH IS EMOTIONAL HEALTH

All to often the emotional state of a person is over looked in their diagnosis and recovery. It is in fact, most of the time, the place where the search for the root cause should begin. 

Let me explain... 

Holistic? Complementary? Alternative?

Holistic? Complementary? Alternative?

The term 'holistic' gets used a lot these days. There are hundreds of alternative, complementary and holistic approaches for your health issues now, but what do these words actually mean? One has to be careful that one term doesn't capture all. 

For example just because a modality is complimentary it doesn't mean it is holistic. And just because it is holistic, doesn't make it alternative.

The terms are pretty much what they say on the tin, But let's break them down...

As the nights draw in and we move into colder, darker seasons there is one thing we should all be taking into consideration - Vitamin D. Getting the optimum amount into your system could help alleviate depression, frequent infections, improve skin condition and bone health. In this article I will outline the how, what, when and why of it all...
