Helping you EAT, MOVE and THINK your way to better health
As we rush about, work hard, play hard and generally put our bodies through their paces, it makes sense to refuel with a meal that can also be stress reducing – and that is all about getting the right balance of vitamains and minerals.

This salad is a perfect way to achieve that easily and it's so quick and simple it leaves more time to relax...

Last month Estelle and Joanne spent some time at a course and are pleased to let you know that they have both certified as SD Protocol practitioners.

So…what exactly is the SD Protocol? Not many people know the term, which relates to the way we are all impacted by the effects of modern living.
SD stands for Sympathetic Dominant. The automatic part of our nervous system has two parts. The sympathetic part helps fire you up to get you out of trouble (fight or flight) and the parasympathetic part helps you be calm and relaxed (rest, digest). A sympathetic response can be triggered by poor posture over a long period of time as much as it could be triggered by a tiger chasing us.
More and more, we are living in a state of stress. Sitting too long, too much screen time, virtual social interactions instead of actual ones, financial and family stresses…. the list goes on and on. This means that our body is constantly on the alert for the tiger chasing us (no matter what form it is taking) and not switching into relax mode often enough or effectively.
To learn more about this and what we, as chiropractors can do for you, there is more information here or ask at the practice
Changes at the practice... __
At the end of this month, we will be saying a temporary farewell to Jo as she heads off on maternity leave. Naturally, we are very excited at the pending arrival of a new junior member of our team.

Broccoli, Avocado and Lime Salad
For 4 people, chop 3 ripe avocados, 1/2 a broccoli head and a big handful of fresh coriander. Place on a platter. Next, juice 3 limes and mix with 2 tablespoons of tahini, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 teaspoons of soy sauce, 2 teaspoons of honey or pure maple syrup and a little salt. Pour over the salad and serve.
