Conversation Towards Health – 1 hour open conversation October 21st 2018

This conversation time was set aside every 6 weeks or so for anyone to come along to the cottage clinic at 3 Druids Ave Mount Barker and bring a question about understanding health from an anthroposophic perspective. It is in acknowledgement that sometimes we have a question but not interested in a consultation. They are questions that when a number of people seek within it more deeply something new can arise. A group of 3 – 6 people generally come together on a Sunday afternoon and allow each conversation to be unique. We have spoken about and received lemon footpaths, and questioned things such as whether the recovery from chronic illness is possible and the nature of allergies.

Please contact me if you are interested in our last meeting of the year on October 21st from 4pm. Ph 0439 896 025.

 

What is Rose Sphagni?

sphagniSphagni Rose, or Rose Sphagni is an emulsion that has natural protective qualities. When applied to the skin it helps maintain a healthy balance in the fluids sitting just under the skin that are effected by such things as travelling in aircraft or fast moving vehicles, stress and radiation. It provides a ‘second skin’ and reduces the impact of the environment on a child’s growing body. In anthroposophic medicine it is used in rhythmical massage and/or as preventive healthcare as part of a daily rhythm. Rose is chosen for daily application for children under 7 years and the primary care-giver. In these years we aim to provide the most ‘heart-like’ environment as the child will use this as their gage of balance in later life. Lavender and rosemary are more one-sided in their qualities and may be prescribed for specific purposes when closer to 7 or older. Citri sphagni is closer to the middle and shares some similar qualities to rose, so may be an alternative to rose on a daily basis. It can be purchased direct from Southern Swan Pharmacy or from Sea Salt.

Lemon Footbath

The lemon footbath is an easy, yet powerful treatment to harmonise body warmth. The result is the experience of being grounded.

Use it at times of change or transition when you need help to leave one activity and move onto the next.

It is perfect to give before bed to promote relaxation, when a child has just come home from the other parents home, after school or on a Friday night so you can breathe out work and step into the weekend more balanced.
