So this kiwi has needed help with most parts of my life. I’m still working through this time, I love structure and I worked hard for my role (can you hear me not letting go)but I love and felt the structure is what I’ve needed.
I’ve taken a big step back in my life there is no date nights, no partying, no pushing to achieve more, do more. No push to be promoted, no hit workouts, it has been time for inner work and time to pull back. Then I started being treated for post traumatic stress disorder, I needed to make peace with the nothingness.
I started to feel okay with this feeling of oh Sh*t…. oh here is the route of my low energy, blackouts and other things in my life, I felt I had no way of managing. They where in charge of me..
With social media being how people live and show their life’s, I’ve learnt it’s how we perceive those pictures or messages based on our own life experience.
Then I read, I am not what, you think I am. You are what you think I am.
I am going to share what has worked for me to move forward, I hope there are bits you may like to try… small steps forward, small changes = new happiness
No forcing, if change was easy habits would disappear 🙂
After over 20 years of not eating meat, I decided to start drinking bone broth. A discussion I have taken a long time to make. With my thyroid issues added into the mix and my digestion being weak, I wanted to add bone broth into my healing protocol.
I’ve been taking probiotics for years, then I started to realise I needed to do more if my weak digestion is a drain on the rest of my body.
I went to Hemsley + Hemsley new cafe in Selfridges to try and taste the broth so I know how it tastes before I start making my own.
I learnt bone broth helps restore healthy mucosal lining in the gut, its high gelatine and collagen and high in proline a very important amino acid. Super charging my food with bone broth to support my hormones and immune system. Sounded like a very good idea to me and the benefits are so much longer than what I’m writing here.

Incredible fresh food, flavour and crunch. “It’s the food you want to stuff your face with”, Thuy
Thuy’s family recipes have the most interesting ingredient that easily goes missing……Love
Our Intention has all the difference particularly in making our food and I could taste the Love in Thuy’s food
I shared this evening with Lucy Loves Food and Chemie
This has been painful deeply painful, for me mainly because these two very different women share one same quality. To inspire beauty in other women and to be beautiful on the inside and out. I once heard Victoria Beckham say ‘she hates it when women hate on other women’, I think Victoria is right here. Polly and L’Wren didn’t hate on other women. They showed others how to be beautiful and to love and respect themselves daily.
What is beauty to me, it’s eating beautiful food and glowing inside out naturally. It’s wearing clothes I feel great in and not what others think I should wear. It is embracing other females in their journey and accepting them as they are. It is allowing me to be me in this time of growth in my life and this time is not perfect and full on roses. More challenges managed with grace, well that is what I am aiming for. To remember Polly and L’Wren when I am creating my food and getting dressed or when I am creating a peaceful space for me to live in.
Mostly importantly to laugh more with other and to cry less for those who have gone but to remember their unique messages to live and love and be me.
In part 1 I talked about Dr Fereydoon Batmanghelidj water work and his discovery of hydration and healing the body and reducing pain with water in what Dr FB called an ‘ideal stress laboratory’ in 1979 in prison.
How does this relate to now? Being dehydrated and a consistent feeling of being tried and knowing you have 200 + emails in your work email inbox and deadlines to meet with a heavy workload and all your work colleagues……. that is a modern day form of a ‘ideal stress laboratory’ not in a prison but for some people, they feel like they are in a prison.
In part 2 I introduced you all to Masaru Emoto’s water work and his discovery of the molecular structure of water having memory. This structure can be reactivated by saying positive and meaningful words to your water to bring the memory back and the evidence of this work. Has been photographed when the water is frozen and under a magnifying glass and looks so beautiful.
How could we think about this in our life’s? Are you willing to say nice words to your water? To help the water be more hydrating for your insides? Could you feel more pretty knowing your water’s molecular structure looks so beautiful? And that silent beauty is following inside you supporting your cells to be healthy and vibrant ?
In part 3 I talked about one way to filter tap water and silent signs of your body craving water. Which are easy not fully realised with the craziness of the working day. Also I asked you, could you imagine your day without these feelings from within?
If so what would you do with your day?
In part 4 I talked about my perception of pressure and stress and how these perceptions affected my water drinking choices, meaning on the 2nd day I was feeling low, flat and heavy with very little thought following. I thought to myself why ? Then oh, I haven’t been drinking much water because I didn’t want to add in the extra pressure of knowing I needed to go to the toilet on top of everything else I need to do.
In part 5 this week as we are living in overly-stimulated lives, why do we reject life preserving water? I explained my external drama and how I let the outside pressures, change the way I looked after my mind and body.
If you have received a cholesterol level diagnosis that has read high in LDL, please read this 5 part write up about water. Then start answering the questions or thinking about this as it is your Liver that will help you a lot in balancing your cholesterol levels back to normal. So think about your water intake. If one positive change today can support your health tomorrow, this is a great place to start.
And yes, I am drinking Black Water…….. amazing right? I am loving my Liver….
This weekend at the Farmers market there was new season asparagus and strawberries, it was amazing to see some new season fruit and vegetables in on the stalls. Especially as I had stopped by my favourite cafe on the way to the farmers market and there was a queue outside the door which meant I needed to take away food and drinks if I wanted anything to eat.
