Access Consciousness

The target of Access Consciousness is to help get people to the point where they are conscious enough to create change within themselves, so that it is also possible to change everything that is not working for them in their everyday life. Once people begin to be more conscious, it will be easier to thrive in the face of the shifts that are occurring everywhere on the planet right now. There are courses available for helping you get real-life tools you can use and showing you how to get where you would like to be. Are you ready to invest in YOU?

Vestibular Physiotherapy

Feeling that you or the room is spinning can be very debilitating. As scary as this may seem most times it is a very simple fix. If the symptoms last less than 2 minutes and are only happening with specific positions, like bending over, it is likely a condition called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). BPPV occurs when calcium crystals in the inner ear get stuck in the wrong area. A vestibular physiotherapist can diagnose this with some simple testing. Treatment typically has a high success rate and in some cases can be resolved in one treatment, but may take 3 or 4 times.

Relax, Already!

Stress is a commonality we all share. Interestingly, a lot of people are so stressed that they don’t know what the absence of stress, or a calm mind feels like. Take a moment and check yourself.

Making self-care a priority, and getting proper sleep and nutrition, practicing meditation, mindfulness, deep breathing, and systematic muscle relaxation, you will find your body relaxing, and foster a better response to future stressors

Boost Immunity with Echinacea

Many of Echinacea’s chemical constituents are powerful immune system stimulants that can provide significant therapeutic value. How does Echinacea help with colds? The University of Connecticut performed a meta-analysis study that determined that Echinacea cuts the chances of catching a common cold by 58%. It also reduces the duration of the common cold by almost one-and-a-half days. Craig Coleman, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice and lead author of the study, added that, “The take home message from our study is that Echinacea does indeed have powerful cold prevention and cold treatment benefits.” It can be used as one of several effective natural cold remedies.
