Scientists have now discovered how mindfulness meditation can give patients control over levels of depression, anxiety and chronic pain, says Mia Hansson. The secular meditation courses now being rolled out by the NHS are a lot easier than the one the Buddha taught.

Thankfully, the secular antidote that the NHS has rolled out is far easier than the one the Buddha taught.

However now that the Xmas Feasting season is more or less over and we are starting to look aheada€¦. Many of us, having spent weeks or months getting into shape for summer, are now feeling not so great, following the indulgences of 'the season'.A  Perhaps, sluggish, lacking in a€?get up and goa€™, tummy and bowel not quite right, maybe a bit a€?flatulenta€™ and possibly bloated, skin looking a bit dull or blotchy.
Firstly, if it comes in a a€?littlea€™ box and promises the world a€¦.it is probably not a good long-term solution. Unless you have really been pushing the envelope with 'multiple indulgences' for a while, a complete Detox program is probably not necessary and some sensible restructuring of your diet and lifestyle may be all you need. Getting back into shape may be as simple as returning to simpler, smaller meals, which contain a good balance of quality protein, complex carbohydrates i.e. As it is summer try experimenting with salads, add a range of vegetables lightly cooked and raw.
For those of you who like your meat I am currently suggesting you consider Meat Free Mondays.
As many of you initially became clients due to digestive issues I will have already explained, in detail, the importance of a healthy, well functioning digestive system to your overall health. Remember, even when living in the cleanest environment, your body produces its own toxins through normal processes, every day. So essentially, when you undertake a Detox, you are supporting your digestive system and liver function, better allowing them to keep you healthy. Exactly what will be involved will depend on your individual needs at this time, but generally we will aim to clean out the bad, put in the good, support you along the way and get your processing plant back to optimum performance so you can move forward into 2012 full of a€?zinga€™! Yes, we are a€?creatures of habita€™, but also a€?works in progressa€™, so things CAN change when you are ready to and really want to. You can get started before coming to clinic by following some of the easier options mentioned previously. I would suggest you look at spending a few days at a Health Retreat, which specialises in these programs.
No, there wona€™t be wine or gourmet food, but remember that may be part of the package that got you into this situation in the first place.
On the self-indulgent ( sorry, bad, bad judgmental Keryn), self-nurturing side, most of the retreats offer other treatments such as massage etc. If you would like more information on the benefits of: Massage, Bowen Therapy, Herbal Remedies and Good Nutrition.

The Sydney Festival has started, Holiday Season is in full swing and The Year of the Water Dragon is about to begin. If you havena€™t managed to relax due to parties and wonderful invitations - a€?fun timesa€™, then perhaps a bit of quiet, a€?down timea€™, in a nice environment.

Cordials and bottled juices are not an option as they are usually high in added sugar or a€?othera€™ creepy things.
It is up to your digestive system and liver to neutralise and eliminate these toxins in order to keep you healthy and feeling your best. More likely than not, to do some more of the things you have on your current New Yeara€™s Resolution list to change.
