Winter Wellness Tips to keep you Healthy and energized this Winter

Posted on July 11, 2016 by Revitalize Lifestyle
  1. Go for a walk even when the weather is really cold – your body has to work overtime to get warm and you may burn up to 50% more calories than you would on the same walk in summer! But remember, go a little slower until you get warm and keep up the hydration. Or even more fun and also energizing and a great winter exercise is to DANCE, anywhere, anyhow, with anyone!

 

  1. Try a herbal tea instead of choosing a cup of hot chocolate to keep yourself warm, especially ones that are immune boosting. Peppermint, Chai, Lemon balm, Ginger and Chamomile to name a few are all awesome immune boosting herbs.

 

  1. The cold air and indoor heaters can dry out your skin. Make sure you drink at least 8 glasses of water each day and use moisturisers throughout winter.

 

  1. Buy some indoor plants to soften up the dry atmosphere caused through heating. Indoor plants give off moisture and oxygen and the colours will brighten up a dull day outside.

 

  1. Eat lovely slowed cooked meals, the food is easier to digest in a slow cooker and it’s warming and nourishing for the body.

 

  1. Do regular stretching, yoga postures or pilates to keep your muscles tone, strong and flexible in winter as they tend to shrink and stiffen in the winter months from less movement and the cold.   For those that know some Brain Gym, Tai Chi or Qi Gong these are an awesome way to lift your vitality and energy in Winter.

 

  1. If the dreaded lurgy hits the household eat lots of soups and bone broths and have a selection of good supplements handy like: Echinacea, Vitamin C, Zinc, Manuka Honey, fresh Lemons. Ginger, Propolis, Colodial Silver and/or Olive Leaf extract.

 

  1. Washing hands: Yep it sounds simple but it’s the number one way to stop the spread of germs in winter.

 

  1. Rest when possible. Regular sleep is essential to staying healthy. Don’t let yourself get run down. Those who aren’t well rested are more likely to get sick and it can take longer to get over the illness.

 

  1. Clean up any house mould. Mould can trigger nasal congestion, sneezing, coughing, wheezing, respiratory infections and worsen asthma and allergic conditions. So move your spring clean forward to autumn.

Move over laughter, there’s a new ‘best medicine' in town.

Medical intuitive expert Jo Surkitt introduces us to this powerful healing technique, discussing her incredible experiences and her hopes for her clients.

 

 Discovering Medical Intuition

 As many of you know, I have been an intuitive healer for decades. I regularly use Reiki, energetic healing, meridians, chakras and energy channels to complement my current healing sessions and enhance the effectiveness of  my retreats.  After years of hard study, experience and learnings, I’m adding medical intuition to my repertoire, and I thought it was high time I told you lovely people all about this incredible technique.

 What is Medical Intuition?

 Your body holds vibrational messages about your past and present. This means that stress, trauma, illness and emotional turmoil can all manifest as disease, pain or chronic ailments in your physical body.

 It is the job of the medical intuitive to identify energy blockages and imbalances in the body and release them at the source. It’s a safe, non-intrusive procedure that requires a great deal of skill since practitioners intuitively read and assess physical imbalances in their clients.

 I work by scanning the body for a priority – an emotional, mental, spiritual or physical ailment or issue. I tune my body into yours, processing and releasing the energy blockages caused by past life experiences, early age traumas, family history or illness. It’s a process that offers immediate relief and long-term healing.

 My Journey

 I first discovered medical intuition eight years ago, but it wasn’t until 2010, when I experienced difficulties with a pregnancy, that I began to appreciate just how powerful this process can be.

 We had been trying for a baby for several years so, when we did fall pregnant, it was an incredibly exciting time. At 12 weeks we received devastating news from our ultrasound; our baby had been diagnosed with a brain tumor, liver, kidney and heart problems. There was nothing the doctors could do but monitor his growth and development.  It was with a heavy heart that I picked up the phone to Helen Paige, a well-known Medical Intuitive.

 Even down a phone line, Helen sensed that I was pregnant. In one session, she identified what was wrong and where the problem originated. In less than a day, she had healed my baby. When the next ultrasound showed no tumour and no organ failure, the doctors called it a miracle. And it was, but I knew why.

 From that moment on, I was hooked. Six years later and I’m very proud to be one of only a handful of qualified medical intuitives, providing my clients with access to this powerful, gentle and life-changing technique.

 Medical Intuition and You

 Medical intuition is a two-way process. As healers, we can identify the cause of your ailments and remove physical blockages, but you need to use the insight we provide to stay well.

 Which is why, at Revitalize Lifestyle, we provide ongoing support and healing. I combine medical intuition with healing techniques and meditations over the past 20 years, giving you the tools to address the imbalances in your life. Together, we’ll discover what perfect health looks like for you. Together, we’ll make your heart sing.
