Overall, I ate carefully to be sure I was getting the right vitamins/nutrients.
Within 2 weeks my chronically dry (from an early age) skin had all but cleared up and my hair was lustrous enough to elicit compliments. These unexpected changes were motivation enough to continue! Other changes I noticed:
I'll leave it to others to decide whether I was simply vulnerable to sugar cravings; whether the presence of an organism which craved it (such as candida) caused my sugar addiction; or whether there was some other reason altogether. For my part: I felt ill; I listened to my body, did what it seemed to be asking and then I felt better. (End of :-)).
weekends there’d be jam and butter on white bread with a glass of milk in front of Blankety Blank or The Generation Game …
I exercised heavily - lots of running, mostly distance, and other sports too. I filled the between-meals hunger with sweets, especially after I left home at the age of 17.
At a certain point, I noticed that my digestion was a problem. I visited the doctor with stomach pains (it felt like I was bleeding inside) and the initial suggestion was Fybogel for constipation/wind. This didn’t work. My pains grew exponentially; bowel movements were hit and miss. I had had enough. What I did however notice, one particularly painful Christmas, was that when I ate sugary things or alcohol, especially if they were consumed apart from a meal, my stomach immediately went into paroxysms. I knew a friend who had cut out sugar for health reasons, so decided I would follow her lead!

It pays to pay attention to what you eat and also to how it feels to you. Wholewheat is good in many ways, but a delicate digestion may struggle to deal with the very wholeness of it!! Benefits may come from eating skin on apples, cucumbers and peaches, but if you are delicate in digesting there is no shame in peeling!
New “superfoods”, ingredients and diet suggestions emerge all the time, some of them may well be helpful to You. Staying mindful will hopefully help to “separate the wheat from the chaff”.
Let your body speak to you … and combine a physical therapy or treatment with an increased awareness in other parts of our life. That way you can ensure that any benefits from Shiatsu or other massage treatments extend throughout your life, leading to a greater all-round sense of well-being.
Ever notice how the things that we eat and drink can cause tension in your body?
Allow yourself to eat thoughtfully – turn off the music, dim the chatter. Simply focus on each mouthful. Taste it, chew it, feel the texture. How does it feel going down? Are my lips tingling? Does my nose feel a little stuffy or is a slight band of tension emerging across my forehead? These symptoms could mean you are sensitive to something you are eating.

What is Shiatsu?
Shiatsu translates as ‘finger pressure’ and is based on traditional Japanese massage. Combining acupressure, massage, flowing movement and joint rotations helps to disperse tension, reduce pain, promote relaxation and healthy functioning of the body systems (circulation, breathing, digestion etc.). Shiatsu therapists are guided by their experience & knowledge of physiology and traditional Chinese medicine and apply pressure using fingers, thumbs, palms and elbows and combine it with other techniques.
