Never, in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that one day the world would stop “running”.
The unimaginable is now our reality, mine and yours … it is called #lockdown!
Covid19 is proving to be more than just a virus. Not only does it present a serious danger to our physical health but also to our minds, emotions, belief system and the wellbeing of our society as a whole.
How did our life come to PAUSE in the blink of an eye?!
Have you been feeling a bit lost and out of sorts ? I know I have.
With so many questions running through my mind, I felt the anxiety building up day after day. I kept wondering how to cope with this surreal, unprecedented experience.
Video Series by Enrida Kelly
Then one morning, whilst cleaning in my kitchen, I had an idea (cleaning seems to have this funny effect on me – it clears my mind).
The idea was to put together a series of videos to share some information, insights and tips about how best to cope with Covid19 #uklockdown. This way I can stay connected with you and the whole world, carrying on my mission of spreading the word about healthy living and self-care.
I have called the series, “Let’s Thrive Together!”
It consists of 15 videos, each touching on a different subject such as…
- nutrition and immunity
- supplements and well-being
- meditation and gratitude
And, personal insights on how to build resilience while focusing on the bright side of life.
The series is now ready and available for only £14.99.
PS. If you would like to purchase the series as a gift, please get in touch and we will arrange for it to be sent accompanied by an eCard.
The Focus this February here at NATPATH CLINIC will be all about SELF CARE awareness.
What does SELF CARE mean?
According to the dictionary Self Care is defined as:
- The practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health
- The practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.
I like both definitions very much and although they seem to say the same thing I find that they also differ in an interesting way. The first definition is more general and a long term action/commitment – it’s a practice in itself. The second definition is more specific and it provokes the need to urgently intervene and protect.
Where are you finding yourself at this present moment in your life?
Are you leaning more towards the gentle daily practice of Self Care or is there a need to quickly intervene and protect? What does you Self Care list / practice look like?
As a Naturopath and Health Coach, my focus on Self Care practice for my clients and myself looks like this:
I shall be addressing all these points through short videos during the month of February through my social media portals – Instagram & Facebook.
I have already shared my thoughts on the topic of the importance of WATER and LUNCH BREAKS.
If you wish to see them, here are the links.

We are also running a promotion on Relaxing Massage this month.
We have now introduced a gift voucher if you would like to gift a caring treatment to a loved one – Valentines day is around the corner.
Talking about love, SELF CARE stems from SELF LOVE so maybe for this month alone focus on showering yourself with love, even on Valentine’s Day. It will help you make a habit of it 🙂
Before I go I would like to leave with this beautiful poem by Lang Leav.

Beat the Bloat and give the Gift of Wellness this Christmas.
5 Tips to Beat the Bloat this Christmas
It is almost Christmas and let’s be honest we will all aim to eat, drink and be merry. It is not a bad thing, after all celebrations are part of life. Whilst indulging and having a good time it is important to remember that our digestion can only cope with so much before it knocks on your door with signs and symptoms.
Here are my 5 top tips to help you beat the bloat.
1. Chew, chew and chew some more. Chewing is the most effective process to stimulate the digestive enzyme production. It also helps stimulate the production of hydrochloric acid, preparing the stomach for effective digestion of those rich meals.
2. Carminative teas such as Ginger, Fennel or Peppermint. A carminative is a herb or a herbal preparation that helps prevent gas formation in the intestinal tract, preventing bloating and cramps. Have a cup of tea 30 minutes before or after your meal. Pukka Herbs and Yogi Teas are two of my favourite tea companies and can be found in health stores, most supermarkets and online: www.yogitea.com and www.pukkaherbs.com
3. Apple cider vinegar taken 20-30 minutes prior or after a rich and protein heavy meal will assist efficient digestion of the fats and proteins and cleanse your palate. A squeeze of lemon in water does have a similar effect. When purchasing apple cider vinegar there are a few things to consider. Choose an organic, raw and it must contain the “mother” which is responsible for most of its digestive health benefits. Here are some of the best brands available: Bragg, Biona, and RAW Health.
4. Seasonal Survival Kit by Just For Tummies. This fabulous kit contains three supplements: Milk Thistle, Digestive Enzymes, and Live Bacteria. You can order it at www.justfortummies.co.uk and get 20% off until 31/01/19 by using this discount code: tummies20.
5. Colon Hydrotherapy, this is beyond the shadow of a doubt, the best treat you could possibly give yourself to manage any digestive discomfort before and after Christmas. Book your session now as January is the busiest month of the year. Out with the old and in with the new.
The Gift of Health and Wellness
Christmas gifts are so important and getting it “right” is not always easy. It is quite traditional and a bit safe to give new clothes, jewellery, a book or the latest tech device.
But ’things’ remain things and once used their purpose ends there. Why not consider a gift that goes towards someone’s wellness and health. Introduce them to an experience that has a profound effect and that will keep on giving for months or even years to come.
We think we have such a gift on offer, take a good look.
You may decide you would like one for yourself too 🙂
The 48 Hour Reset
Order yours today and receive it via email or by next day delivery. This gift voucher is valid for 1 year from the date of purchase.
Lastly, I would like to wish you from the bottom of my heart,
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Yours in health and happiness,

This month I have put together a special bodywork package combining…
saunas, massage, fragrant herbs and oils with the intention of promoting and reminding my clients the necessity and importance of this state of being.
Before I go further to explain what this package entails I can imagine some of you wondering…
What is Grounding?
Well, grounding is the simple process of being present in your body, connected with the Earth, connected with oneself in the here and the now.
If you are finding yourself having scattered thoughts, hesitating a lot, being disorganised, being easily distracted by other people, events or surroundings, finding it difficult to take firm decisions, feeling stressed and out of source, than it is safe to say that you are definitely not grounded.
Grounding is characterised by a sense of calm and balance. It generates a sense of ease in the mind and stability in the body.
Here are 5 simple tips to help you re-ground and re-connect with your sense of purpose:
- Sit down on the ground, close your eyes and breathe; anywhere, in the garden, at home, in the office on a yoga mat or meditation class.
- Spend time in nature, in your garden or your local park. Breath the cold air, watch the leaves fall, touch them, feel them.
- Eat some of the sweetness of the Earth that comes in form of fruits and vegetables such as pumpkins, butternut squash, carrots, cabbages, pomegranates, apples, rhubarb.
- Drink Turmeric latte otherwise known as The Golden Milk. They are spicy, warming, anti-inflammatory.
- Book an appointment and take advantage of our October offer.
It combines the benefits of FIR Sauna (Far Infrared) followed by a massage using grounding essential oils.
The use of the essential oils during the massage is optional. They can also be therapeutically beneficial when burned or diffused. The best grounding essential oils are Sandalwood, Frankincense, Vetiver, Patchouli, Rosewood, Ylang Ylang and Myrrh.
Enjoy October! Stay warm, spiced up and grounded.
