Breathing is very important - and as obvious as that sounds, it is surprising how few of us actually do breathe 'properly'. Breathing is something we all take for granted and are inclined to forget about. However, shallow breathing can often be a symptom of stress. Similarly, shallow breathing can result in fatigue and stress due to the intake of insufficient oxygen. Shallow breathing can also result in dizzy turns as insufficient oxygen is getting to the brain. Since approximately 90% of our energy is created by oxygen and nearly all the body's actions regulated by it - it is rather important that we get enough of it!!

Go somewhere quiet and lie down or sit in a chair with good back support so that your body is straight, allowing you to breathe deeply and comfortably. Make sure you are not wearing any tight clothing. Tell yourself to relax. Work on every part of your body from the top of your head to your toes, consciously relaxing each part. Concentrate on your breathing, taking deep in-breaths, through the nose, letting the breath fill your body, relaxing and calming. Then breathe out through your nose or mouth, exhaling all negativity and stress and ridding your body of the toxins which build up there. Repeat this a number of times - if you can only manage 10 minutes that is fine. Eventually you will be able to practice this anywhere, any time, when you are feeling stressed. Try not to hunch your shoulders as you breathe in - try to consciously relax the shoulders and neck and breathe from the abdomen - watch your tummy expand as you breathe in.

There are a number of breathing techniques which are taught by practitioners of different disciplines, either on a one to one basis or in a group, such as a workshop perhaps. If you have a particular medical problem, then a good place to start is with your doctor, who will be able to advise you.

Used for centuries for its many health benefits, Fennel essential oil has pronounced antioxidant properties and is considered a tonic. It is often used to relieve indigestion (supporting the healthy functions of the stomach), to aid in any kind of digestive issue and to support improvements to the lymphatic system. Fennel's sweet yet spicy aroma is balancing and has familiar licorice notes. http://ow.ly/Hpnzy

Because of the many influential compounds found in eucalyptus, it is a key ingredient in cough and throat medicines and chest ointments. Eucalyptus is used widely both for its calming and clearing properties as well as to ease breathing*. For aromatic or topical use. http://ow.ly/HpndG

sciatica Herbs for remedies: Castor Oil * Cayenne Pepper * Clove * Dong Quai * Elecampane * Eucalyptus * Evening Primrose Oil * Hops * Jamaican Dogwood * Juniper Berries * Nutmeg * Passion Flower * Peppermint * Ravensara Oil * Rue * Spikenard * St. John's Wort * Tamanu Oil * Vervain * Wood Betony *

Nerve pain is more difficult to treat than other types of muscle and joint pain. This is something you know well if you have had a lower back injury or slipped disc; sciatica can be devastating

Fungal Infections - Natural Treatments: Apple Vinegar * Cinnamon * Clove * Copaiba Balsam * Garlic * Geranium * Goldenseal * Grapefruit * Horseradish root * Myrrh * Neem Oil * Papaya * Spilanthes * Tamanu Oil * Tea Tree oil * Thuja oil *

Fungus needs moisture and darkness to grow, which is why keeping affected areas dry is a most important first step. Athlete's foot, tinea pedis, is a superficial fungal infection that infects the skin. Other species affect other parts of the body,tinea corporis, commonly called ringworm, and tinea cruris, commonly called jock itch, which can affect women too. Common household items like cornstarch, garlic and vinegar are the first line of defense against these common personal infections.

There are many ways of meditating and meditation means different things to different people. Meditation is part of normal daily practice for a great number of people within some religions. Whatever the word 'meditation' means to you the practice can be enormously helpful as a way of calming the mind and finding your own inner peace. This place of inner peace is where we can open up to our higher self - without the 'interference' of the ego or intellect - where we can find our higher intelligence and knowing.

Meditation can be achieved by focusing the mind on a particular object, for example a flower, or on a simple shape, on a sound, on an image (visualization), or by focusing on the breathing. (Colour breathing exercises can be done lying down or sitting and can be a very helpful form of meditation.) There are many very helpful tapes and CD's around to help with meditation as they will talk the listener through the stages of relaxation and some will help to build a 'picture' in the minds eye of tranquility. With practice, you will find it becomes easier and easier to meditate and to be able to 'switch off' any time, anywhere, when you are feeling the need for some peace.

asthma Breathe easier with home remedies: Benzoin Resin * Butterbur * Calamus root * Coffee * Colt's Foot * Elecampane * Epimedium * Garlic * Ginkgo biloba * Gridelia * Lobelia * Stinging Nettle *

If you suffer from asthma or any other chronic condition affecting the lungs you may want to investigate herbs that have been traditionally used as lung tonics. Evaluate them carefully, however, as some are not suitable for long term use or for children.

I've been going to Zada for a couple of years now and I always leave feeling wonderful. The massage itself is perfect, but Zada's upbeat personality never fails to put me in a better mood. I would highly recommend Zada to anyone experiencing stress or any sort of muscle pain. I think she's a compassionate person and truly wants to help her clients feel better.

I have used Zada for multiple services, including massage, reflexology and cranial sacral. She is a wonderful holistic provider and is good at what she does. I appreciate her willingness to help me get on the schedule due to my unpredictable schedule. She is a wealth of knowledge and I am thankful to be able to use her and refer her to others.

Zada is very knowledgeable in her field and works with the client to give the best massage. She is very attentive to areas of concern. Her deep tissue massage is wonderful! I have been a client of Zada's for over a year now and will continue due to amazing health benefits I have seen since going to her! I highly recommend her.

The work that Jonathan has done on my neck and shoulders has been truly transformative as the muscle knots melt away. Highly recommend for chronic pain and tension! I've also had a couple of very lovely relaxing massages by Janet and Zada. These people know what they're doing. I

I ordered a chime from Zada at Natural Gifts Holistic Center, and am highly pleased not only with the product, but with Zada's attention to customer service. USPS took a very long time delivering the item (over a week, for an in-town delivery!), and Zada stayed in communication with me until the item arrived. I believe she even ordered a back up item, in case the original one was lost in shipping! I am very pleased with my experience, and will definitely work with her in the future!

Zada was super nice, but her massage was subpar. She talked a lot during the massage, which is fine, but there were several points in the massage where she was so concentrated on her conversation, she completely lost focus on the massage. And when she lost focus, she would pause and her hands would lay idle on my back, either with very little pressure or none whatsoever. After my 90 minute massage, I walked out thinking, 'meh.' I'm sure if she was 100% concentrating on the massage instead of talking, I would have had a much better result.
