Wellbeing 101

Definition of well being 
a good or satisfactory condition of existence; a state characterized by health, happiness, and prosperity; welfare:

After a long internal debate I have decided to do it, they say starting something is the hardest step.  I went to see a homeopathic center today at Well Park Clinic in Grey Lynn, Auckland after my lovely friend Mel told me about the clinic.  It isn’t like visiting the dentist :S or anything but it took me awhile to come around to the idea.

Today is a fresh start, my body, mind and soul needs a change, a fresh start.

They say your mind, body and soul are all interconnected so when one is out of kilter it throws your whole body off track.  My wellbeing is unbalanced, I am always tired and lethargic, have consistent low energy, headaches, dry throat and afternoon sugar cravings.

I had a 2.5 hour appointment with Skye.  The appointment was very thorough, we went through my entire medical history along with my parents.  We covered a lot in such a short time (well it seemed short at the time :)), we discussed my diet, exercise regime, lifestyle, sleeping patterns, yoga & Pilates benefits and stress levels.

Skye then went away for 30 mins, reviewed my notes and then come up with a treatment plan for me.  I was given a few natural supplements to help with my fatigue and increase my intake of vitamins and minerals.

Here’s what I was ‘prescribed’

Liquid therapy: Wellbeing tonic

Echinacea  
Echinacea works to increase the activity of the immune system by stimulating white blood cells, which attack the viruses and bacteria that lead to illness or infection
Schisandra
Schisandra is a famous tonic traditionally used by both royalty and master herbalists. It is one of the few herbs that contain the three treasures known as Jing, Qi and Shen. Traditionally used for enhancing the energy of the kidney and liver, Schisandra is known for supporting memory and endurance. It is mildly calming and helps strengthen the primary energies of life
Dandelion
The leaves have large amounts of numerous vitamins, including A, C, D, and B-complexes, as well as minerals like iron, magnesium, zinc potassium, manganese, copper, choline, calcium, boron, and silicon.
Licorice
Licorice was used historically to treat the skin and coughs. It is also used to treat constipation, bronchitis, inflammation, and arthritis. Research has shown that licorice flavonoids can kill the bacteria that causes stomach inflammation and ulcers, called Helicobacter pylori.

1 large bottle of Ultra Muscle Eze Energy.  I will keep you updated on my diet plan later this week once I start my wellbeing tonic 🙂

Blessings, write soon!
