Natural help for menopause
As I've been doing so many talks and workshops about the menopause recently, and helping an increasing number of women through this natural transition in their lives, I've decided to dedicate a whole website to...The Menopause.

The idea is that women can use this website to learn more about what's going on in their bodies, and find useful information about how they can help themselves move through the perimenopause using diet, lifestyle changes, herbal remedies – and attitude! It's also aimed at women looking for help withdrawing from HRT.

Please refer anyone you think might be interested in taking a natural approach to the menopause, to my www.naturalhelpformenopause.uk website.

MANAGING MENOPAUSE in CORNWALL
To all those who were unable to get a place on my Managing Menopause workshop last month (it booked up really quickly, due to restricted numbers as much as popularity of subject/me, btw!), I’m pleased to announce that I will be running another one on Saturday March 19.
I’ll be discussing the physical, emotional and psychological impact that menopause can have, and ways in which we can help ourselves to glide through this natural period of transition with grace, understanding and the minimum amount of physical and emotional upset.
Seriously, it can be done! There’ll be lots of advice about herbs that can be very effective at helping to manage the symptoms of menopause, self-help tips and support on offer. This workshop is also useful for those who would like help withdrawing from HRT. There is a small charge of £10 per head.
The Managing Menopause workshop is being held at the Inspiring Health clinic, 17 Fish Strand Hill, Falmouth TR11 3BD, on Saturday March 19, 2016, from 10am-12.30pm. As the workshops are for small groups only, booking is essential. Please phone 01326 212112 or email info@inspiringhealth.org.uk to book your place.

I have just finished bottling 7 litres of my exceedingly good, and exceedingly popular, Elderberry, Thyme & Liquorice cough ‘n’ cold linctus. It took hours and hours. On top of the hours spent picking and preparing the first batch, only to pour it down the sink after my husband John contaminated it with a dirty pan lid. (He did forgo his fishing trip the next day to help me gather and prepare more berries.)

Elderberry syrup is an excellent tonic for fighting colds and flu, soothing sore throats and clearing congested chests. Its therapeutic properties are given a double whammy by the addition of thyme – a renowned herbal antiseptic remedy for throat and chest infections; and liquorice – a demulcent expectorant for dislodging and bringing up phlegm and boosting the adrenal glands to support the immune system, among loads of other therapeutic actions… Recent scientific research supports all this, although herbalists have been clued up on it for hundreds of years.

FREE TALK ABOUT HERBAL MEDICINE
Quick reminder about my herbal medicine talk this Saturday February 14th, at 2pm, in Poltesco valley.
I’ll be covering how herbal medicine works and the type of health problems it can help with, and also discussing its relevance today, in this world of increasing antimicrobial resistance and side effects associated with orthodox medicine.
Plus, for a bit of fun and because it’s Valentine’s Day, I’ll be talking about aphrodisiac herbs!
You'll find me in The Education Room in the Poltesco National Trust yard (post code TR12 7LR).
For those who don’t know it, Poltesco is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, right next to the coast path, so you could combine your visit with a walk and soak up some of the healing energy that exudes from this beautiful place.
If you’re planning on coming along, please email me at deannegreenwood@me.com to ensure you get a seat.
Thank you!

My latest blog comments on the shocking fact that almost half the population is taking some form of prescribed medication, ie I in 2 people, and that many are taking at least three prescriptions – some of these for the side effects of other medicine they are taking. Herbal medicine can help reduce reliance on prescription drugs and hugely improve health and quality of life.

I’m often asked whether Echinacea really is a helpful herb to take to prevent or speed recovery from colds and flu. And whether it’s safe to take if you have an autoimmune disorder such a chronic fatigue syndrome or psoriasis, or an allergy, when the…
