You and What You Do Matter Greatly(despite what you may think)
Lets start this newsletter with something a little different to our usual info.
There are many lessons for us to learn through our lives and we are all put in positions(or choose things?) that will expose us to the lesson(s) and hopefully we will "get it" and then be able to move on in our life.
The situation where we blindly continue, without learning the lessons set out for us, will lead to a life where growth stops and this in itself will ensure we find ourselves in the same position time and time again, bringing with it repeated feelings of loss and perhaps frustration, "why me", what did I do to deserve this".
This will continue until we do in fact "get it" and finally at this point our level of wisdom increases and ultimately our understanding of ourselves and life and importantly"love" will be more obvious to both ourselves and those around us.
You see, there are some fundamentals it seems that we really should get a hold of - sooner rather than later - and a key fundamental is this - knowing thats it's OK to be in love with yourself - can you say "I love you" and be comfortable with this simple statement, try looking at yourself in a mirror and directly saying this statement and see what it feels like. If this is a foreign concept to you I suggest you just put any judgement aside and try it, it may be scary, it may feel a little weird even, but it will be a good start, Happiness starts HERE, NOW!
The truth is that to be truly happy we need to to be in love and to be in love we also need to be happy.
And like most things, knowing love is first about knowing, accepting and loving ourselves, love starts at "home" with our own self love, without this we will be operating on a very shaky foundation that will ultimately collapse.
Learning to love ourselves is often the most important step to take when dealing with a health problem - there are many books written by cancer survivors for example who have gone through the process of discovering what blocks they have towards their ability to love and be loved, it really is that important that we cannot survive/thrive without it.
So what does this have to do with the title above?
We all have a reason for being here - and our lives are so intertwined with all those we come into contact with. What we experience and feel along the way is interpreted by us as a result of our life experiences.
So who cares about whether we learn our lesson or not?
It’s not uncommon to underestimate our own value and, therefore, the value of our input in any situation. But the truth is that you matter, what you do and importantly how you share your knowledge matters immensely. It is the lessons we have acknowledged and learnt from our life experiences that result in us being who we are today and the opportunity to share this knowledge can and does have a profound affect on those around us.
The influence of a single person can be huge, a friend of mine who runs a mentoring service uses the line - "....changing the world one person at a time..." as mere humans we often underestimate our influence and give ourselves little credit - it is important that we be aware that our interaction with others, whether we are feeling(and acting) positive or negatively is having an influence.
It is irrelevant to what you do, you might be a naturopath and help people with health issues, you could be a fitness expert and help people gain and/or maintain their fitness, you may be a travel agent and direct people to make the right bookings for the holiday of a lifetime or you might even work in an employment agency and give people opportunities for new and exciting career paths - whatever you find yourself doing in whatever niche, whatever market—your work matters to the people you connect with.
With these thoughts in mind I hope this gives you some idea that whoever you are and whatever you do, your contribution is in fact crucial, you DO matter and every time you are interacting with ANYONE you will be having an influence, so take a little time to nurture yourself and remember how much you matter.
The following is a short quote that sums this up quite nicely:
“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open.” Martha Graham
Here's wishing much Love to you all.
Product Highlights from www.maximumwellbeing.com
Colds/Flus and all those nasty little bugs that come into play at this time of year are once again doing the rounds and causing havoc for some families.
The difficult thing is not knowing exactly what to do to get rid of the bug. You can of course do many things that could lessen the severity and reduce the down time, but this will only happen if you get into action.
We have found that the wonderfully simple formula's put together and sold as Hbt treatments are still a very good option for many.
Hbt stands for Homeobotanical and is a clever system that allows us to mix and match a wide range of herbs, both traditional western herbs and even traditional Rongoa to match the needs of an individual.
We mix the herbs into a treatment bottle and then succus to produce what is in effect a low potency homeopathic formula and herbal medicine all in one - simple, safe and effective for the whole family.
To determine which of the many different herbal combinations will be best for you we do some simple muscle testing either with you in the clinic or for those who don't live nearby we do the same testing but complete the testing process using a surrogate on your behalf. This may sound a little odd to those not familiar with some of the processes we use, but believe me it works
This of course ensures we can work out the best remedy for you and get it onto the courier and away on the day that you need it.
The dose is in the form of drops - for example the optimum dose may be just 3 drops taken 3 times daily, see what I mean about simple.
If you or a friend or family member is coming down with something then of course reach for the simple things like:
Garlic - fresh or otherwise
Lemons and Lemon juice - hot toddy
Honey - must be raw honey
Vitamin C - don't use ascorbic acid, go for a good quality Vit C, real with all the cofactors and bioflavonoids
Probiotics - in a capsule or even food fermented that is unpasteurised - more good bugs is always better!
Active Elements 7.1 - a great assistance through the cold and flu season
And then on top of that give us a call and order a Hbt remedy to help your body and immune system along.
This month we will carry out the testing and put together a remedy for you, put it onto the courier and send it to you anywhere in NZ all for just $30, this would normally be a value of $60(or possibly more) so we hope you do take advantage of our offer for this month.
So, give us a call or email us to order your individualised remedy today!

Organic has many advantages, Rodale Institute:
After 30 years of side-by-side research in a Farming Systems Trial (FST)®, Rodale Institute has demonstrated that organic farming is better equipped to feed us now and in future. The trial at Rodale Institute is America’s longest running, side-by-side comparison of organic and chemical agriculture, which started in 1981. After an initial decline in yields during the first few years of transition, the organic system soon rebounded to match or surpass the conventional system. Over time, FST became a comparison between the long-term potential of the two systems. Carbon increase was highest in the organic manure system, followed by the organic legume system. The conventional system has shown a loss in carbon in more recent years. In organic fields increased groundwater recharge and reduced runoff. Water volumes percolating through soil were 15-20% higher in the organic systems than the conventional system. Rather than running off the surface and taking soil with it, rainwater recharges our groundwater reserves in the organic systems, leaving soil in the fields where it belongs. Soils of the organic systems are better equipped to store and use water efficiently.
Over the 30 years of the trial, organic corn and soybean yields were equivalent to conventional yields in the tilled systems. Wheat yields were the same for organic and conventional systems. Water leaching from the conventional system more frequently exceeded the legal limit of 10 parts per million for nitrate-nitrogen concentrations in drinking water compared to the organic systems. Atrazine leaching in the conventional system sometimes exceeded the maximum contaminate level set by the EPA for drinking water. Concentrations in all conventional samples exceeded 0.1 parts per billion, a concentration that has been shown to produce deformities in frogs.
