Pleased to announce that we're now stock Tropic skin and bodycare products. These are toiletries with a difference: they tick all the boxes for us at The Hub… they're completely natural and freshly made so don't have all those horribles in them that standard beauty products need to have for a long shelf life; they're ethical, with the company promising to be 100% cruelty-free and vegan; and they're pretty damned innovative, containing ingredients sourced from the Amazon, Polynesia and Australia that you may well never have heard of.  [...]

Why chanting is so good for us

Here are some of the benefits chanting has on our body, mind and soul. Get a load of those benefits in Hannah Bimpson's new monthly Yogic Relaxation classes We in the West have a thing or two to learn from Buddhist monks, who are the embodiment of serenity, kindness and [...]

Art at The Hub: the perfect present

When I launched The Natural Health Hub I wanted to create a centre for complementary health and well-being for women, and crucial to that vision was to make it a tranquil, welcoming, pleasant place to come to. And what better a way to enhance that atmosphere than the art of Graham Bell… These contemporary digital photographs, which are for sale, are everyday local shots you'll have seen so many times – a foal in the forest, a sunset or [...]

Stop yourself going down with flu this winter

Arm yourself for winter: we recommend that every household should stock up with oscillococcinum, the homeopathic flu prevention, this winter   NHS officials are in a tizz apparently that we’re in for a bumper year for flu, with record numbers of people set to go down with the virus this winter. Australia has just battled its worst flu season in almost two decades, with two and a half more cases than last year, and the fear is that we’ll [...]

Yoga nidra: the benefits

As we introduce a new class to The Hub, monthly Yogic Relaxation, our yoga instructor Hannah Bimpson explains the many benefits of yoga nidra, one of the vital elements that she will using. It's bliss on a mat – just lie back and sink into deep, deep relaxation! Yoga nidra – lying on your back through a guided meditation – is a special relaxation technique that has a deep effect on the body, our energies and our mind. Nidra (meaning sleep) [...]

We now have weekly qigong! Come and join us on Thursday mornings

Since we opened people have been clamouring for a weekly qigong (chi kung) class – so here you go, we’ve persuaded acupuncturist and experienced practitioner Tracey Underhill-Law to introduce them on Thursdays, 10.15-11.15pm. Practised throughout China by everyone from monks to the public – Sunday mornings, you’ll see huge gatherings of people in parks – for three purposes, martial, medical or meditative, qigong has its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Qigong (pronounced 'chee kung') is a lovely holistic combination of co-ordinated [...]

Walking with mindfulness

You don’t have to sit or lie down to be mindful. Walking can be a wonderful way to achieve mindfulness. It's a question of focus and allowing yourself just to be as you put one foot in front of the other. Take each step as it comes. Think about how a dog trots along and sniffs as he goes, completely immersed in what he is doing – that's the art of mindfulness. Imagine just how liberating that could be [...]

So how are you sabotaging your immune system?

As the government predicts record levels of flu this winter, it’s going to be crucial that we all keep our immune system on top form. Our naturopathic nutritionist Rhi Hepple outlines some of the ways you could be compromising your immunity   It’s that time of year again when our immune systems are working super-hard to keep us healthy and fit. Naturopaths believe that stagnation and chronic inflammation are where illness begins. Inflammation within the body is a natural [...]

Back-to-school blues, anxiety and wobbles

So you’ve done it! The kids are back at school, your toddler’s survived his first foray into nursery, life’s got back to some semblance of normality. But has it? Here's how homeopathy can help if your child – or you – are suffering from school anxiety  If your child’s quiet and sullen and won’t say why…. If each morning is a battle because someone is really not happy at being back at school… If that bullying and sniping has [...]

What does it feel like to have a panic attack?

We share women’s experiences of the terror of having a panic attack, and suggest ways you could prevent and tackle them here on offer at The Hub: from hypnotherapy, NLP, counselling and homeopathy, to life coaching, yoga, meditation and dietary advice. Just as stress comes at us in all sorts of forms and intensities, so panic attacks come in all kinds of different ways. Two common denominators are they hit you totally out of the blue and they’re really [...]

Orthodox vs alternative therapies? Perils of treating symptoms rather than the root cause

A cautionary tale illustrating why to choose alternative therapies and complementary medicine rather than conventional drugs There once was a town called Allopath. It had many people, streets and cars but due to budget limitations there were no stop signs or traffic lights anywhere. Not surprisingly, traffic accidents were common. Cars would crash into each other at nearly every junction. But business was booming for the car repair shops and local hospitals, which dominated the economy of Allopath. As [...]

5 ways to boost your immunity

So, sad to say, the nights are drawing in. At this time of year, as the autumn mists begin to swirl of a morning, we have a single mantra: immunity, immunity, immunity. However healthy you are and however saintly your lifestyle and diet, you will be exposed to more bacteria and viruses over the coming months, so boosting your immunity is all-important. It's well proven that as the weather turns at the change of seasons we're all more prone [...]

Give yourself an autumn boost by rebalancing your gut flora, or microbiome

We strongly urge you to get your gut sorted NOW! Rebalancing your micro biome (or gut flora) is, as Dr Michael Mosely has reported widely in the press and media, the secret to good health – not only physically but also mentally emotionally. If you follow our 21-day microbiome Purify programme you are setting yourself up to face the winter colds, bugs and flus… plus, we reckon, to feel brighter, friskier and more positive for the sunshine-less months ahead. [...]

10 a day in one slug: Mistify antioxidant fruit drink

Drink your way to good health with a fruit supplement that's not only the best antioxidant we've found, it tastes fabulous too!  With the latest research indicating that the five-a-day mantra is nowhere near enough for optimum health, how on earth do you get the 10+ portions of fruit/veg now recommended down the necks of kids who strop about just one floret of broccoli? And for that matter, how is it possible to pack so many antioxidants into your [...]

Kids taking probiotics have fewer infections and less time off school

So they're off back to school… and now comes the season of snot, sniffles and wheezing. How to stop the snots? Research shows children who take probiotics through winter have 25% less chance of getting some infections and miss 40% less school We strongly recommend you give your children probiotics at this time of year so they’ll fight off all the bugs doing the rounds as the school term progresses. This is especially appropriate for kids prone to ear nose and [...]
