Are you feeling safe and secure?

We all need to feel safe and secure. This seems like one of the most straightforward of the basic psychological needs. Your unconscious (or subconscious) mind is naturally sensitive to any threats to your safety and security. This need for security is the origin of our most deep-based fears. This is where you learn to notice dangers and respond instinctively to them.

Common sense tells us that we need to avoid things like fire, physical violence, falling from a great height, being attacked by a wild animal, being poisoned or being severely cold or exposed. These go without saying, and your unconscious mind knows how to protect you from these, so you may feel natural fear when faced with a lion, or something being on fire. You will instinctively avoid standing close to the edge on a high building if there is no barrier. You will want to get somewhere warm or wrap your clothes tighter around you if it gets cold.

Weight Loss: 2 Therapists, 2 Approaches

Written by Caroline Burton. Posted in Blog

One of the (many!) lovely things about Vinings Natural Health Centre is the range of treatments and therapies you can enjoy under one roof. 

Often, there is more than one approach to a particular condition or issue, and we are holding a series of informal talks over the next few months to highlight this aspect of our work. In each case, two of our practitioners will talk about their approach to the same issue.

Our first talk is on Wednesday 15th March, 10am – 11.30am, at Vinings, and the topic is Weight Loss.
Nutritional Therapist Darshika Bower (left) will show you how you can kickstart your health, energy and weight loss through eating foods that balance your blood sugar.
Hypnotherapist and Past Life Regression Therapist Judy Sharp (right) will outline a more alternative approach, including Hypnotic Gastric Banding.

Places for the talk are limited, so if you would like to come along, please contact Darshika or Judy to book your place – there’s no charge, we’d just like to know how many (healthy) refreshments to provide!

Time for You?

Written by Caroline Burton. Posted in Blog

Well, the long summer holidays are over – phew! Whether you’ve been away on the holiday of a lifetime, or been coping with little ones who get bored far too quickly; whether you’ve been on “granny duty” or trying to juggle job, home and holidays – now is the time to settle back into a routine.

Now is a good time to focus on you, too. With autumn well on the way, it’s time to get your whole system in shape. Hopefully you’ve topped up with sunshine through the summer – best natural source of vital Vitamin D – and now you should be thinking about those months ahead. Time to build up the immune system, pull the diet back on track, give up smoking instead of just talking about it – and yes, perhaps even a bit of pampering at every level if that’s what your body needs!

At Vinings Natural Health Centre, our team of experienced therapists can take care of body, mind and soul!
Just think how wonderful a relaxing aromatherapy massage with Carole Thornton could be, with specially-selected essential oils to work at deep levels to help you unwind, de-stress and come back to that place of balance.
Or if it’s a deep-tissue-style massage you need to get rid of knots or for rehab, Graham Lines is your man: he specialises in sports massage and offers taping, strapping and ultrasound too.
If you feel you’re out of kilter diet-wise, then our naturopath Kirsty Lander can give you a top-to-toe check-up and help you get back on track, physically, mentally and emotionally. The blend of scientific and traditional healing principles, with kinesiology and practical experience helps with a wide range of imbalances and conditions.
It’s not always easy – whatever your age – to find that path through life, and sometimes we seem to lose our way. Robert Sanders works with a mix of NLP, Timeline Therapy and Life Coaching to help you understand where you are (and who you are!) and how you can get to where you would like to be.
Sometimes, there’s an energy blockage: what better way to release that than with acupuncture with Julia Biggs? Julia’s highly-intuitive approach helps to identify those trouble spots and clear the blockages so that the energy flows smoothly again, easing physical discomfort or that feeling of being stuck.
If you decide that now is the time to tackle that excess weight, or to kick the smoking habit once and for all; if that irrational phobia is getting in the way of your daily life – hypnotherapist Judy Sharp can help! She combines clinical hypnotherapy with past life regression, soul retrieval and other techniques to uncover the real root cause of an issue.
Just because summer is over, don’t forget your feet! They will be tucked into shoes and boots all winter, so treat them well! If you would like regular foot care, Caroline Burton is your lady, while for more clinical / medical advice, our podiatrist / chiropodist Deborah Ferguson can provide the treatments you need.
If you would like to try something completely different – have a consultation with our herbalist Yaso Shan. She is highly experienced in Chinese herbal medicine and also creates her own range of Centella personal care products that contain only natural ingredients. They make fabulous gifts!
And last but not least, if guidance and emotional support is what you need – and most people do at some stage in their lives – then turn to counselling psychologist Dr Lynne Jordan, who is highly experienced in various counselling modalities and will be able to help you through those rocky patches.

This is Time for You – and the team at Vinings Natural Health Centre would be more than happy to help you towards optimal health and wellbeing!
Vinings Natural Health Centre is located in Church Road, Haywards Heath, behind the Orchards Shopping Centre. We have our own parking for clients, and it is a lovely peaceful place to come and unwind as the healing takes place.

What the Therapists Say – Weight Loss

Written by Caroline Burton. Posted in Blog

white feet on scalesObesity is, if you’ll forgive the pun, a growing problem in this country. Depending on which reports you read, up to 70% of us are clinically overweight, while more than 40% of us would be classified as obese.

There is a huge media-driven paradox about weight. On the one hand, everywhere you look, there is food – whole shelves of magazines dedicated to it, TV programmes and overnight celebrities and, of course, advertisements to tempt us to “treat yourselves” or “enjoy”. And on the other hand, there is an exaggerated obsession with being slim to the point of skeletal.
No wonder, then, that many people are confused about what they should eat, what is good and what isn’t. It is perfectly possible to read an article explaining why sugar and dairy products are bad for you, then switch on the TV and see people making meringues or cream-filled cakes!

We asked a couple of our therapists for their views on weight loss. First, our Herbalist Yaso Shan. Yaso is a Medical herbalist who also lectures in the Health & Biomedical Sciences, so she is ideally placed to comment on trends and fashion in the pharmaceutical “pop a pill” approach to slimming. You can find out more about Yaso and her work on her website:  www.yaso-shan.co.uk .

Anyone wishing to lose weight really needs to do the maths before embarking on any “quick fix”, especially those that involve over-the-counter (OTC) pills. The science of weight loss is really simple. In short, output must equal input is weight gain is to be avoided. That is, the amount of food eaten (energy content) must equal the amount of calories burned through daily energy consumption and / or activity. This does not factor in the quality of the diet and any health practitioner will advise and focus on nutritional values as well as quantities. With age, the metabolic rate declines so more care is needed regarding quantity of food. The quality of our diet is really important, there is no “one size fits all”. Body shape also changes over the years, so exercise patterns need to change to reflect those changes. Exercise has many benefits, not least increasing the metabolic rate.

Yaso works with natural herbs and remedies, and can tailor-make remedies that are just right for you. You can call her on 01444 441 210 or 07817 420 118.

And second, our hypnotherapist Judy Sharp. Judy is an experienced hypnotherapist who combines hypnotherapy with past life and spirit release work, and also “fits” hypnotic gastric bands if appropriate. You can find out more about Judy and her work on her website:  www.effective-hypnotherapy.co.uk .

My approach to weight loss is to help the client to uncover the emotional root causes – why are they holding on to excess weight? In my experience, it could be one of many reasons, from childhood abuse to bullying at school; from miscarriage or still-birth to a painful relationship split. The excess weight could be protection or comfort – but when it gets out of control, or when it is no longer needed or appropriate, then we need to let it go. It is quite common to find that people who have an obsession with food in this life have starved to death in a previous life, and have “carried forward” the thought “I will never go hungry again”.
I worked with a young lady last year who wanted to get rid of her excess weight. By her own admission, her diet was dreadful, but she could not stop thinking about food. In the first session we did some spirit release work after which she completely lost her craving for cakes, biscuits and sweets – she had been feeding a “passenger” with a sweet tooth! In a past life session, yes she had starved to death, so we resolved that too. By the time we had finished, her workmates were commenting on how well she looked – but most importantly, she had re-discovered her true self, and had taken back control of her life and her eating habits.
Another lady I worked with said she had tried every diet in the book and then some! She had gone through the menopause, that had only made things worse, the weight would not shift. We talked about her life and it emerged that she had lost two babies at birth. To me that was a key issue, and sure enough when we explored that at soul level, then was a huge amount of guilt and grief to be dealt with. After many tears and much deep healing, the change in the client was clearly visible. After several sessions, she too had re-connected with her true self, better placed to cope with current challenges – and without the excess weight that no longer served her.
I will fit a hypnotic gastric band if the client and I feel that it is necessary. Quite often, even those clients who arrive determined to have one decide that they don’t need it after all – and that’s fine by me too! You can find out more about hypnotic gastric banding on my website, or give me a call on 01444 459 433 or 07597 020 512.
