Homeopathy for Colds & Flu Workshop

It’s that time of the year again, where many of us are more susceptible to colds & flu, specially the little ones. Homeopathy is a gentle and effective way to strength your immunity and approach these illnesses naturally, which can also be combined to other natural botanicals to keep you and your family  healthy through the season.

As homeopathy is a very individualized therapy, remedies change accordingly to your peculiar symptoms, each case is different, thus not everyone with a cold need exactly the same remedy. During this workshop, you will learn how to identify and use each specific homeopathic remedy from initial to late symptoms, as a first aid and natural approach to colds & flu.

Paleo Zucchini Bread

Another fall recipe you don’t wanna miss is this zucchini bread! Fall has the best comfort food recipe ideas in my opinion, and most of them are quite flexible too, in case in you  like  to play with ingredients like I do.

Although this recipe is paleo, it’s not low carb, but can be. If you prefer less sugar, just use 1/4 cup of xylitol instead of honey and ta da! You have now a low carb recipe.

  • 1 1/2 cup of almond flour
  • 1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup (or xylitol for low carb version)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp ground all spice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup of grated zucchini
  • Optional: vanilla extract, cardamon, walnuts

Pre heat oven to 350F/180C. Mix all together, except the zucchini (and walnuts if you choose so), in a blender. Add the zucchini and mix gently, stirring with a spoon. If you choose to add walnuts (about 1/4 to 1/2 cup), add them at the end with the grated zucchini and stir gently. Drop the dough in a loaf tin greased with coconut oil or covered with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 1 hour, let it cool for  a bit and enjoy!

Banana Bread, Simple & Healthy

We just entered fall and the subtle lower temperature calls me for recipes like this: simple, fulfilling, comforting and packet with nutrients.

Ingredients:

  • 3 bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • Coconut oil to grease
  • Optional: ground cinnamon, honey, dark chocolate chips.

Pre heat oven to 350F / 180C. Mix all ingredients together in  food processor, until the batter is smooth. Grease a loaf tin or small oven proof dish with coconut oil, or cover with parchment paper. Drop the batter into the greased/covered tin and bake for approximately 35 minutes. Remove from oven and enjoy!

You can play around with this recipe. If the bananas are not too ripe, you may add some honey, maple syrup or xylitol to sweeten the recipe to taste. You may add dark chocolate chips to the dough, or just cover the batter already in the oven tin with a bit of honey and cinnamon to make a crust.

Lemon Mini Muffin Treats

The backyard tree loaded with lemons was a perfect opportunity for a weekend treat, keeping in mind a healthy lifestyle.  The recipe was adapted from Ditch the Carbs website, these paleo low carb lemon mini muffins are easy and tasty, definitely worthy to try:

  • 1/2 lemon (about 60g) with skin, seeds removed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup of almond flour (blenched)
  • 2 tbsp xylitol
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Put the whole lemon in a blender and mix, add the eggs, vanilla extract and xylitol and mix until smooth. Add the almond flour and baking powder and mix until all blended. Pour into a mini muffin tray and bake in 350F/180C for about 12 min.

Homeopathy according to WHO

Accordingly to WHO (World Health Organization), Homeopathy is the second most used form of complementary therapy after allopathy (conventional medicine) in the world.

While allopathy focus more on symptoms, Homeopathy strengthens the body vital force, stimulating your body natural ability to heal from inside out. It takes in considerations all aspects of your well-being, physically and emotionally, in a integrative manner. The job of the homeopath is to understand you as a whole, beyond your symptoms, reaching the root cause of unbalance.

Allopathy and Homeopathy are complementary to each other. Sometimes I see people so inspired about the results of homeopathy, that they decide to ditch all conventional medicine. As a professional in the area I truly believe there is a place and situation for each of them, combined or not, and both can save lives.
