Green tea is full of beauty benefits and is naturally rich in anti-oxidants that protect the body from free radicals. That means protection against accelerated ageing, exposure to pollution, smoking and too much sun. You can use the leaves as an exfoliant, drink it as tea, make a distilled solution and dab it on spots or you can use the Wellness Body range already infused with green tea to give you all the benefits.

It is such a cliché but I just had to say it: Prevention is better than cure. All of us have a responsibility to find out the best ways of running our bodies. We pay attention to our businesses, to finances and everything else but often forget to do the necessary when it comes to physicality. At the end of the day, health is wealth and without proper functioning, our lives become severely impaired. It’s not all gloom though, exercising vigorously puts you on such a high; eating foods your body loves means feeling light and energetic; chilling out and keeping stress at bay means gliding calmly through life. It’s all good when you know how. Most of it is easy; include healthy practices as part of your daily routine and the benefits will be so apparent. In our article on page 12 we talk about how, as a human species we have never been more prone to illness than we are now with research showing eighty percent of the adult industrial population suffers from at least one preventable chronic illness. Diseases of the heart, cancer, diabetes, hypertension and strokes are pandemic in our society. Part of it is because of the way we live, the stress we have on a daily basis and food devoid of nutrition. National health services worldwide are focusing much more on a preventative approach and involving patients in self-care. It has become imperative for everyone to play a part in maintaining good health. Wellness Warehouse has a strong culture and commitment to involving our customers in the practice of preventative health and wellness. We hope it rubs off on you.

and extra delicious when home made. Chop up 10 big ripened tomatoes, 1 onion and a garlic clove and throw into a big pot. Add ½ cup white vinegar, 1 cup water, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp black pepper and ¼ cup honey. Once it has boiled turn to low and simmer for three hours. Puree and store in a glass bottle.

Hummus is delicious on bread or as a dip for carrots and celery. Mix 2 crushed garlic cloves, ½ tsp salt, 4 tbls lemon juice, 1 ½ tbls tahini together. Blend a cup of chickpeas and mix together. Serve in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.

Peanut butter is guaranteed to be fresh and additive free if you make it yourself. Dry roast peanuts beforehand if you want more flavour. Blend one cup of salted peanuts in a processor, add a tbls of vegetable oil (not olive oil) and a tbls of honey.

GOOD PASTES Date paste is yummy as a jam, with yoghurt, on fruit or used in desserts. Blend 1 cup of dates thoroughly, add a cup of soaked walnuts, ½ cup of filtered water, ½ cup agave nectar, ¼ cup coconut oil a pinch of salt and mix until smooth and creamy. This mixture can also be dehydrated and cut or rolled into fruit leather.

Olive paste keeps for five months when refrigerated. Use it on crackers or bread, add to pasta, to salad dressing, use in marinades or on meat or chicken.

Dates are so versatile and can be used as a base for sweet treats, fruit spreads, jam or chutney. Soften them by covering with a little boiling water, blend, puree, chop or eat whole. Try them coated with yoghurt for a heavenly sweet experience.

Line your pantry with staples essential for a multiple of dishes. On low grocery days butter beans or chick peas can be blended into a satisfying dip. Cherry, chopped or whole tomatoes are standard additions to pasta, soup, stews and goulash.

Think of barring high fat, cholesterol forming, heart clogging ingredients and swapping them for ‘just as tasty’ alternatives. Eat a high volume of vegetables but add flavour to make them tasty.

Pressed for health

Rather than using butter, use Ghee. Ghee is clarified butter with nutritional and health benefits that regular butter doesn’t have. Whether you are a dieter, or an athlete, ghee is an ideal alternative. It is also great for cooking as it has a high smoke point.

Cold pressed organic oils are filled with highly beneficial components like essential fatty acids, omegas and polyphenols. Credé Natural Oils pioneered cold pressed oils in South Africa and have built up a trusted reputation for their high quality and fair prices. When cooking with oil, look for varieties with a high smoke point. The fatty acids in any oil heated to the point of smoking will be structurally damaged and will generate DNA-damaging oxygen radicals in the body. As long as oil does not reach its smoke point, no harmful byproducts are created.

The only reason these cells will ever move away from health and towards sickness and disease is if we are toxic in something we do not need or deficient in something we do need. To simplify: if we have too much of something or too little of something. When cells have their required raw materials and are free from toxicity they will naturally be in an expression of health. Symptoms do not represent a genetic error in the cells. Symptoms represent important signals from your body telling you something is wrong. If the oil light comes on in your car, what would you do? Would you provide your car with what it requires (oil) or take the bulb out (masking the symptom).

“To embrace wellness, humans, like every other species, must learn how to eat, move and think in ways that nature intended.”

share your #preventiontip @wellnews

PREVENTION IS KEY By Dr. Robert Delgado MChiro(SA), C.C.W.P(USA), M.C.A.S.A

Is our lifestyle making us susceptible to disease?

smart tip Never start a health improvement programme by taking away things you love. Add good things first. Over time, as you become healthier the need for the bad things will naturally fall away. The more healthy choices you make over time, the more you will start to crave additional healthy choices. 12

A

s a human species we have never been more prone to illness than we are now. Granted we have more access to medication and preventative methods but research shows that eighty percent of the adult industrial population suffers from at least one preventable chronic illness. It’s not getting better either; rates have been rising steadily for the last 50 years. Diseases of the heart, cancer, diabetes, hypertension and strokes are pandemic in our society. So if eighty percent of chronic disease is preventable through lifestyle intervention, how do we put this into action? everything you need to live life well

“It’s

simple,” says a leading wellness expert. “Health and wellness is our natural state. Imagine a rain forest made up of millions of trees. If every tree is healthy then the rain forest is healthy. In the same way, our bodies comprise of trillions of cells working harmoniously together in a self-healing and self-regulating ecosystem to maintain homeostasis and life. These cells are genetically equipped from birth to express health and vitality. If all our cells are healthy then we are healthy.”

The real question we need to ask is: What lifestyle choices will help reduce toxicity and deficiencies? Fortunately, as a benchmark, we have hunter-gatherer cultures around the world that live long, productive lives and are virtually free from all chronic illness. Their genes are the same but they don’t suffer from many of the diseases we do. We can learn from them by adding more of their lifestyle choices to our modern world. The key to lifelong health is understanding that human beings have to follow natural laws to prevent illness. All other species do this, that’s why animals are healthier than us. Essentially, we are hunter-gatherers that have been plucked from our natural environment and stuck behind a desk eight hours a day. We eat refined toxic food and think stressful thoughts from morning until night. This unnatural environment is the root cause of almost all chronic illness. To embrace wellness, humans, like every other species, must learn how to eat, move and think in ways that nature intended. So what can we do in our everyday lives to replace toxicity with purity and deficiency with suffiency? How can we provide our bodies with what is required?

2.

Take the following supplements: Omega 3 Fish oil; Vitamin D; MultistrainProbiotic; Whole food Vitamin and micronutrient complex (this can be replaced by juicing vegetables daily). These supplements are proven to be genetically required raw materials, yet with denatured soil and processing, it is extremely difficult to get sufficient amounts in our modern diet.

3.

Incorporate as much activity as you can into your daily routine – walk or cycle instead of driving, take the stairs, play with your children. Daily movement is a vital requirement.

4.

Always shop with a full stomach – the food choices you make when you aren’t hungry are noticeably different to what you buy while hungry. Stick to the whole food section of the supermarket.

5.

Judge a lifestyle choice by how you feel afterwards, not during – Have you ever regretted eating a salad or walking in the sunshine?

6.

Start and end everyday with gratitude. Focus on what you have in life rather then what you don’t have.

7.

Reduce your consumption of refined processed foods and sugar – Eat food as nature intended. Being well is not an all or nothing concept. Every choice you make counts. Having a bad day or a bad week is not failure. The body is very fair and as long as you make more positive choices today you will be healthier then you were yesterday.

The 5 Wellness concepts •

Health is our natural state, it is toxicity and deficiency that leads to sickness.

Our genes do not differ from our pre-agricultural and pre-industrial ancestors.

Our ancestors and surviving tribes that model their lifestyles did not die from chronic illness like heart disease, hypertension, cancer and diabetes.

The only difference between our healthy ancestors and us is our lifestyle.

The vast majority of chronic illness is due to lifestyle choices and is therefore preventable.

Increase the amount of raw fruit and vegetables you consume. Make an effort to add a raw fruit or vegetable to every meal. By making this one simple addition to your life, you will already be healthier. visit wellnesswarehouse.com for a comprehensive guide to health

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT By Glenn-Douglas Haig About 15 years ago I was listing companies on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and working in an extremely pressurized environment, from 7am to about 9pm. For most weeks of the month I would be holding 3 meetings at once in my office, one at each table, and I’d be moving from one team to the next balancing this ridiculous scenario as best I could. Clearly this was not a sustainable way of working, but being young and eager to prove myself, I carried on… until my body decided it had had enough. My brain hit the freeze button and my eyes started crying uncontrollably… there was nothing I could do to stop them. I ended up on a drip and then going to the St. Francis Health Centre for a week to recover from a nervous breakdown! Some of us, especially mothers, lead our lives with this selfless attitude and put other people’s needs ahead of our own. This works for a while and sometimes it is necessary, but we so easily fall into the trap of “they need me” that we overlook the warning signs: fatigue, insomnia, mild depression and lethargy. The truth is, our minds and our bodies are designed to endure and overcome any prolonged pressure or activity, as long as we take care of them properly. What we really need to give ourselves is the opportunity for a daily practice… of any sort. Be it a 4-minute quiet moment to start your day while drinking your coffee and staring out of the window, or a dedicated meditation practice, or a 15-minute breathing exercise, or half an hour tending to your plants, or a nightly bath before bed, the power of a daily practice cannot be over-emphasized. Consistency is the key: 10 minutes a day is worth far more than 1,5 hours a week. A daily practice prevents the build-up of toxic stress and so empowers you to sustain your energy levels and release negativity. Your mind and your body both thrive on this small amount of loving attention and with practice, you will perfect the balancing act of life in the mad modern world!

MAKE THAT SHIFT It’s actually just an attitude shift, a dose of attention and energy focused on ‘I am a healthy person’. From there you add a healthy practice to your lifestyle wherever you can. A few simple innovations can make a substantial difference. Knowing what illness or disease conditions you might be prone to means being able to take preventative measures. Taking supplements daily can turn into a habit you hardly notice. A brisk walk or cycle everyday will make your body call for more. Deep conscious breathing can be done in traffic or during a drive. The healthier you are the more energy you radiate and the more attraction energy you have.

Smile and laugh your way to physical health

BETA 1, 3/1, 6 glucans Beta glucans are derived from yeast cell walls. They are known as biological response modifiers or substances which stimulate the body’s response to infection and disease. Before the world became more hygienic, our bodies were exposed to these beta glucans in much higher quantities. Beta glucan are believed to play a role in immunity by potentially reducing risk of allergies and infections.

COPPER Copper is a trace mineral and antioxidant believed to be vital in the maintenance of a healthy immune system.

A simple smile and great bursts of laughter are powerful prevention mechanisms to heal, boost your energy, strengthen your immune system and support both physical and emotional health.

A

ccording to Chinese Medicine most illness starts with disharmony within our selves. Emotions such as fear, anger, worries and sadness have an enormous effect on our emotional and physical wellbeing. A smile is a simple way to reduce our feelings of stress, create happiness and experience more peace and harmony within our body and mind. The practitioners of the Traditional Chinese Medicine believe that an ‘inner smile’ to our organs, heart and lungs, for example, is the foundation of healthy living and a healthy lifestyle. We asked

wellness ambassador

Dr Candice Morrison how she lives life well?

I specialize in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and try to balance 24hour work shifts with plenty of exercise. I aim for 8-9  triathlon training sessions a week. I love spending time outside with loved ones and cooking healthy food. In maintaining a balanced lifestyle, I eat plenty of fish, fruit and vegetables and the occasional glass of wine and my favourite chocolates to wind down!

Zhineng Qigong is a modern Qigong school of teaching that aims to improve health, develop wisdom, remove inner blockages, prevent disease and nurture Qi, or Life force, within in the body. It is a deeply meditative practice using slow, soft movements performed under relaxation and a calm mind. Through movement, visualization, breathing and healing affirmations, Zhineng Qigong teaches the power of the ‘inner smile’. Britta Stalling shares, “When

we practice Zhineng Qigong or any other healing method we often concentrate too much on wanting the ‘right thing to do’. But trying to perform the ‘right’ postures and movements leads us to tense up and at the same time hinders us to let go! 
If we start practicing the inner smile while doing our exercise we start mastering our personal power and well-being on a much higher and more effective level. Our body responds to our inner smile: when we go through our body with the intention of smiling to each cell and organ, to our nervous, blood and lymph systems, to our meridians, bones, muscles and tissues, to literally every part of our body, we immediately relax and our body loosens up, warms up and starts to heal.”

ZINC This nutrient plays a role in almost all aspects of immunity and a deficiency in zinc may severely compromise wellness. Zinc has also been shown to have anti-viral properties. VITAMIN D3 This vitamin is made when our skins are exposed to UV light and helps our bodies manufacture antimicrobial proteins that fight off bacterial, fungal and viral infections. T-cells, a component of the immune system, rely on being activated by vitamin D. Due to the use of sunscreen, the body’s ability to manufacture vitamin D is reduced. SELENIUM Low levels of selenium may lead to a poorly functioning immune system. ESTER-C® This is a non- acidic form of vitamin C and is known to be gentle on the stomach. Vitamin C may be beneficial in reducing the incidence and reoccurrence of colds and ‘flu.

"Notice your thoughts, whatever they are, just watch them come in and go out. Keep watching until all of them have left."

Curb your thoughts Psychologists speak about the concept of ‘awful-ising’ where we take the facts presented around us and let our thoughts create disastrous outcomes from them. Knowing that sometimes there is nothing you can do about a situation and accepting what is creates automatic relief. Certain things are out of our control and that’s just the way it is. You can dump a whole lot of heaviness, stress and worry purely by acceptance.

TIP IF SOMETHING IS REALLY TROUBLING YOU, WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING YOU ARE FEELING ABOUT THE SITUATION, WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN, WHAT BOTHERS YOU, WHO IT AFFECTS. ONCE YOU HAVE FINISHED, LEAVE IT IN THE NOTEBOOK YOU WROTE IT IN, SEE IT AS HAVING LEFT YOUR THOUGHTS.

Live in the moment

LEAVE STRESS BEHIND Most people’s daily lives have a higher level of stress than they are genetically wired to cope with.

R

esearchers have proven the amount of input we get from traffic, billboards, newscasts, television and media plus constant interruption from beeping phones and multi media messaging, not to mention social and appearance pressure is contributing to burn out, nervous disorders and depression. Stress is cited as a contributing factor to many illnesses and chronic diseases. Finding normality in the midst of a life that

18

comes at you from all directions means actively limiting some of the input. Things like switching off your cell phone for a couple of hours everyday or practicing meditation, following a spiritual practise or a vigorous walk are all beneficial practices to bring peacefulness and calm into life. Another way which is becoming more popular is the use of healing stones, talisman’s and plant essences to protect the energy around you. Spend at least ten minutes a day in the pursuit of peace. Here are some of the ways you can achieve this. everything you need to live life well

Share with us your #Stressless tip @wellnews

5 ways to persuit peace in your life >

If you examine what you worry about most of time, you will find it relates to something in the past or something that hasn’t even happened yet. If you live in the present moment, those worries will have no place. As you stand, right now, no matter what the situation you will be able to find joy in being alive. Even seemingly grievous circumstances have a positive aspect attached to them.

Then notice your thoughts, whatever they are just watch them come in and go out. Keep watching them until all of them have left. Be in the emptiness and feel the peace surround you.

TIP WHEN YOU ARE AT YOUR MOST PEACEFUL, SMELL AN AROMATHERAPY OIL, CHOOSE ONE YOU LOVE. REPEAT THAT TEN TIMES WHEN IN A PEACEFUL STATE AND YOUR BODY WILL ASSOCIATE THE SMELL WITH PEACE. YOU CAN THEN JUST SMELL THE OIL AND YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY RELAX.

Let Nature do it Whether it’s a single tree, a river, a field of flowers or a stretch of sea, nature has deep healing energy that neutralises stress almost immediately. Spend time walking in nature, reading a book next to a tree, lying in the grass, feeding birds, picking flowers or hiking up a mountain. This is an extremely effective way to chill out completely.

TIP IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT NATURE, USE A CD WITH NATURE SOUNDS TO ADD A DIMENSION OF PEACE. RAIN FALLING, WHALES AND WAVES CRASHING WILL ALL DO THE TRICK.

TIP

Know that, this too shall pass

USE A PHRASE LIKE ‘BE HERE NOW’ AND WHISPER IT TO YOURSELF FREQUENTLY TO REMIND YOURSELF TO BE PRESENT. WRITE IT ON YOUR DESK OR WALL IF THAT HELPS.

No situation ever stays the same. If you are in the middle of something dire, be assured that even if you are convinced you are jinxed, the laws of nature support cycles of change. It is impossible to have endless bad luck.

Meditate So many people have found deep peace through meditation. This is an extremely efficient way to empty out all the thoughts that don’t serve you. Try it yourself, join a meditation group or get a guided visualisation DVD. If trying it for the first time, start off by noticing your breath, follow your breathing, watch the air come in and go out.

TIP CREATE A PLACE IN YOUR MIND WHERE YOU FEEL SAFE, IT COULD BE ON A BEACH, IN YOUR GRANNIES KITCHEN, FLYING ON THE WINGS OF A BIRD OR ANY OTHER SUITABLE PLACE. CREATE THIS SAFE PLACE WITH ALL YOUR SENSES, SEE IT, FEEL IT, SMELL IT AND MAKE IT REAL. wellnesswarehouse.com

Green Tips Pollution Prevention

Pollution Prevention is a major global concern with escalating harmful effects on both human and environmental health. Environmental pollution comes in various forms: air pollution, water pollution, soil pollution. Eco Diva and editor of Simply Green Magazine reports. It all starts with us. If we all take personal responsibility in our respective communities by cooperating and actively participating in making the atmosphere pollution free, it will help stop pollution today. Here are some easy tips: - Use unleaded gasoline in your car. - Keep your car properly maintained and in good running condition to avoid smoke emissions. - Share a ride or engage in car-pooling. - Instead of using the car, choose to walk or ride a bicycle whenever possible. - Never use open fires to dispose of wastes. - Adopt the 3Rs of solid waste management: reduce, reuse and recycle. - In summer, hang laundry to dry, this will minimize the use of gas or electricity from dryers. - Use eco-friendly or biodegradable materials. - Create your green space. Value your garden. Plant more trees and put indoor plants in your homes.

NATURE CHIC

PET PEACE

International model Dune Kossatz has a jewellery range inspired by a love of nature. Raw materials taken from the earth are fashioned into unique designs that are also practical. Each hair band doubles as an elegant bracelet and carries a semi precious stone with a different healing attribute. A proportion of funds from Dune’s products are donated to the Tomorrow Trust Fund.

Q-Link makes special pendants easily attachable to your pet’s collar and set with a technology called Sympathetic resonance. This is tuned to optimise the energy system. As it interacts with the surrounding biofield it rebalances and restores energy. People who use the Q-Link on pets find they are more relaxed, less hyperactive, and seemingly more able to cope with the effects of various ailments.

Many people feel a protective and strengthening energy from crystals and gemstones. Some feel they are grounding or energy-giving, others use them for courage or to resonate with more love. Somehow people are drawn to them to promote the well-being and health of their mental, spiritual and physical bodies. Most people are drawn to a certain crystal more than another, this often says something about the person; perhaps the crystal has qualities beneficial for that particular individual. Stones and crystals can have strong healing powers that bring positive changes to the mind and body. Some experts use them therapeutically to cure illness and disorders.

HEALING STONES

WELL SPACE

Tumbled and natural gemstones and crystals come in beautiful mobiles to uplift the body, mind and spirit through their healing energies. Agate is for protection and grounding, Fluorite helps to cleanse and energise the energy in your environment while Sugalite sets up a shield of protection.

"Controlled breathing will induce a relaxed state and encourage drowsiness."

ENCOURAGE MELATONIN: Darkness signals melatonin production in the brain which tells the body to start winding down and get ready for sleep. By keeping the lights on bright until late in the night your natural processes do not prepare the body for sleep. Keep lights soft, use candle light or lamps for at least an hour before you retire. Make sure there are no lights shining in on your bedroom. LEARN TO DE-STRESS: With stress as one of the major factors that add to insomnia, it is wise to find some way of calming the body. Meditation, conscious breathing or guided visualisation are all highly effective techniques for calming the mind. The Art of Living runs courses on breathing and techniques to de-stress (http://www.artofliving.org/za-en); look out for online guided visualisation, myyogaonline.com is a subscriber based site with amazing visualisations and yoga classes, some of which are specifically for helping prepare the body for sleep. Look for a DVD with relaxation music or nature sounds. TAKE SUPPLEMENTS: Sleep Boost from Bioharmony has Passion Flower, Hops, Lavender, Valerian and Gammaamino-butyric acid, with tranquillising and calming properties. Good Night Tea and Passiflora also work. Melatonin has also become a very popular sleep supplement. USE AROMATHERAPY: Burn ‘sleep inducing’ aromatherapy oils in a burner, sprinkle on your bed linen and pillows or add to a night time bath. Use the following formula for an extra sleepy effect. Mix 4 drops of chamomile oil, 2 drops of lavender, 4 of neroli and 2 of marjoram and use in the bath or pillows. Lavender works well for worry induced sleeplessness.

Lie on your back or side, eyes closed, and begin with a few very deep inhalations, fill your lungs as much as possible. Exhale fully, drawing in your abdomen to expel as much air as you can. Repeat this three times, and at the end of the third exhalation hold your breath as long as you are able. Repeat this procedure two or three times, or until you feel drowsy. Or as an alternative try the following repeated four or more times. Exhale completely through your mouth. Inhale through your nose to a count of four. Hold your breath for a count of seven.

Air it out: As much as you can, let your baby be nappy free. Put a cloth or absorbent pad under your baby and let her naked bottom enjoy some fresh air for as long as you can.

A preventative approach is invaluable when keeping your baby irritation free.

Let it breathe: Leave some room for breathing in the nappy. Seal it tight enough to stop leakage but loose enough to prevent chaffing. Bath wise: Once a day is enough to bath your child. Make sure whatever you use is pH neutral.

BABY FACTS: •

Suckling is instinctive. Scientists in Norway observed babies who were delivered onto their mothers’ tummies, and found to their astonishment that if unaided babies will use their limbs in a slow but coordinated way to crawl up and reach the breast where they then latch on and feed without help.

Just ten minutes after being born a baby has already orientated him or herself and can work out where a sound is coming from.

Psychologists have found that babies as young as just 2 days old can recognise their mothers from a tape recording of only one syllable.

Let your baby help tell you if he or she is too hot or too cold. Even though they can’t physically move blankets or clothing away from them they do signal their temperature comfort in other ways. When a baby is cool he or she will move around more. When she is warm she will lie as if sunbathing, with her arms and legs flung out to the side.

It has very good antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and can also be applied to stings and bites. It is ideal for anyone suffering from eczema or any skin conditions. Available at all stores and online.

WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE: Baby will have red and inflamed skin (dry or moist) around the nappy area and also on the genitals, thighs and bottom. The skin could be shiny looking or pimply.

WHEN TO WORRY:

Get the low-down on nappy rash with expert advice

did you know?

Newborns have a much stronger sense of smell than their parents. They use this sense of smell to recognise their caretakers during their early weeks. Strong perfumes and household cleaning products can be uncomfortable and overpowering for them. Avoid baby’s exposure to strong fragrances or scents.

24

A

preventative approach is invaluable when keeping your baby irritation free. Obviously a combination of wet bum, skin and sealed nappy is already a recipe for nappy rash, but add chemical irritants from soaps, creams or wipes and you could aggravate the situation even further. Change regularly: this is probably the most important piece of advice. As soon as you sense there is any kind of activity going on, whether it’s just a wee or a poo, change the nappy immediately. Most mothers know when their baby’s are making a poo by the

smell or the way their little faces screw up. Keep it dry: After bathing or cleaning, make sure his or her little bum is completely dry. Pat it dry and then fan it to make sure. Even a small amount of damp can trap moisture which is the main source of diaper rash. Make it natural: Perfumed products might smell good but chemicals will dry out and irritate a baby’s sensitive skin. Always use unscented, chemical free and natural products or use warm water and a soft wash cloth or cotton wool.

If the nappy rash continues beyond 48 to 72 hours, if there are blisters, boils or if your baby has a fever, temperature or other symptoms, pay a visit to your paediatrician. If nappy rash isn’t treated it could develop into a yeast infection like thrush or candida especially if baby is taking antibiotics. Thrush looks like red spots that multiply into a solid red patch. If baby has a bacterial infection it could cause pus filled pimples that look like nappy rash. Rashes can also be caused by an allergic reaction to a product used on the skin.

earn how to exercise your eyes, keep your vision in top form and you might never need to wear glasses. We look at lifestyle habits, nutrition, eye exercises and a holistic approach to vision according to The Bates Method. Even if you lived with 20/20 vision most of your life, between the age of 45 and 48 most people inevitably start moving their book or menu further away to focus. Eyesight deterioration seems to be the norm whether it happens early on in life or much later. Before I met Chrisopher Lane I had never thought of an alternative to glasses nor had I thought of taking steps to preserve or rejuvenate my eyesight. Christopher is an advocate of the Bates Method, (a method of preserving and correcting eyesight without using glasses) is past 60 and doesn’t wear glasses. In his opinion there is an alternative to a quick fix optical prescription. “The cause of common dysfunctional eyesight is not hereditary but rather from lifestyle,” he says. Firsthand experience convinced him to become a teacher of the Bates Method (at age 22 he discarded his glasses after nine years of prescription dependency).

REDUCE SUGAR & CHECK IMPROVE 3D VISION & MEDICATION REDUCE LAZY EYES Sugar and food with a high glycaemic index can directly affect vision within minutes. What’s more, as cited by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, eating lots of sugary, starchy food can make eyes vulnerable to age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Research shows that diets rich in antioxidants might help prevent AMD. Avoid diet drinks with aspartame TIP: Check the precautions on any medication you choose - there are more than twenty known over-the-counter drugs that directly affect vision.

EXERCISE & DRINK MORE CHECK YOUR STESS WATER LEVELS Exercise makes us more likely to choose the right balance of energy and protein foods instead of comfort food. It also improves breathing and sends more oxygen to the blood, digestive system and eyes. Handicrafts done in good light and team ball sports like squash are excellent activities for exercising the eyes. Quality water with chlorine removed will offer optimal hydration which means the pupils function better. Air conditioning, combined with fixed stare gazing tend to dry the pupils.

“The Bates Method is not ALLOW VITAMIN D rocket science; it’s all about re- Research shows excessive use of educating ourselves with eye sunglasses makes us vitamin D deficient, care principles and learning new which reduces our ability to focus in various light extremes. Our irises are photosensitive habits to see clearly”, he says. muscles that need daily exercise.

"Habits and practises that restore vision can be learnt."

Exercise your eyes DID YOU KNOW? Blinking provides a continual momentum of automatic refocusing. We should blink about 12 times every minute. Practise deliberately blinking after every line of text you read and soon it will become a habit.

everything you need to live life well

W. H. Bates wrote ‘Better sight without glasses’ in 1918 where he prescribed simple eye exercises suitable for common weakening eyesight conditions. Although there are many recorded cases of radical sight improvement, The Bates Method has not been recognised by mainstream professionals and remains an alternative therapy. Bates case studies showed correctional glasses make the eyes deteriorate even further and strain the eyes, reducing peripheral vision when our natural field of vision is meant to include peripheral. The Bates Method is suitable for children and adults with nearsighted (shortsighted or myopia), farsighted (hyperopia) or old sight (presbyopia), astigmatism, and lazy eye (or strabismus) and other common dysfunctional vision. Use the following tips and exercises from The Bates Method to improve and rejuvenate vision:

Essential oils for beauty:

Use eye exercises: move the eyes into extreme positions (gaze upwards), then down as far as they go; to the far right and to the far left. Follow your thumb. Move it diagonally upwards to the left, then diagonally downwards to the right. Do this once a day, seven times in each axis. Focus on something close e.g. put your thumb half a metre in front of you, focus, then move your gaze point far into the distance and focus there. Finally roll your eyes around the perimeter of your vision in a circle, first one way then the other.

COMPENSATE FOR SCREEN TIME Avoid working for prolonged periods consuming caffeine drinks and low nutrition snacks in front of a computer screen or TV screen. At best screens are at 1000 pixels. Our eyes are designed to see moving objects at 1.5 million pixels and about 40 images a second with focus from 10cm to 25metres and frequent additional far away focus on the horizon. Many lifestyle habits are ‘fixed-distance’ with monotonous lighting. TIP: Break long viewing periods by splashing the eyes vigorously with warm then cold water a number of times. Rub hands together and palm the eyes. This will encourage the iris to maximize its diameter. Do this for 2 minutes, 8 times a day. Look up often from your screen and focus far in the distance. wellnesswarehouse.com

Bates believed the eye returns to perfect vision only when absolutely relaxed. He points out that the optic nerve, the retina and the visual centres of the brain are passive. When effort is employed to engage them, their efficiency is always impaired. Mental strain of any kind always produces conscious or unconscious eyestrain. If the strain takes the form of an effort to see, it produces an error of refraction.
