Vertigo is a disruptive condition which causes stress in a patient’s life. In vertigo the patient experiences spinning, loss of balance and, occasionally, nausea. It can manifest in a sleeping or sitting posture, or only show when the patient stands up or walks around.
According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM ), vertigo is caused by low blood pressure, dampness in the body, deficiency or blockage of vital qi energy, and stagnation of blood. The organs affected by this condition are the spleen, the kidneys, and the liver.
Acupuncture coupled with Chinese herbs can be an effective cure for vertigo. Care Cure Acupuncture clinics first conduct a free, no obligation, consultation to assess the reason behind your vertigo.
Examples of the questions Care Cure therapists ask are, is it a heavy dizziness? Do you have mucus or phlegm? Is it hard to walk? Is your energy low? And can you sleep at night? They also do a tongue and pulse diagnosis to figure out what is going on inside the body.
Once they ascertain the reason behind your symptoms, practitioners will use acupuncture points that immediately take effect and relieve symptoms in a short space of time. Once the dizziness has subsided, they will concentrate on restoring the system to health.
To book your free consultation, call 091 539996/086 2159282. See www.carecure.ie for further details. Care Cure clinic is located in Galway city.
Care Cure will hold an open day this Saturday from 12 noon to 2pm. Do not miss out on this great opportunity to meet the Care Cure doctor, Dr Zhou, and learn about the health benefits of acupuncture and TCM. Everybody is welcome. Care Cure is located at No 1 Rockfort House, St Augustine Street (directly opposite the library ).

Get in shape for Christmas with Operation Educogym
Human beings are naturally slim when they engage in the things they like doing for their own sake. Our digestive system has evolved over millions of years and it works perfectly well if we give it a chance. We have lost our habit, but not our ability, to eat correctly. We need to pay attention, not to calorie amounts, but to our internal feedback. We need to pay attention to within, not without. The process is very simple.
Limiting and denying food types and restrictive calorie intake is temporary, demeaning, painful, and only partially successful. The method of good eating is the opposite to what we know, to slim we need to enjoy our food more, love and accept our bodies, and accept ourselves for who we are. This lighter attitude actually decreases calorie intake naturally and releases psychological and physical power into the system.
The processes in Joy2slim are developed from the latest breakthroughs in slimming and wellbeing. The reason that we fail at slimming is not because we are lazy, weak willed, or lacking discipline, we are just using methods that are contradictory to our psychological makeup. We do not need strength, discipline, or energy when we simply eat the way we are designed to eat.
If we are trying to be slim to be happy, the unconscious mind will sabotage our efforts. The unconscious mind does this, to protect us against psychological corruption… strange but true. That is why you have not fully succeeded… until now.

More than 2,000 years ago, the Greek physician Hippocrates stated: “All disease begins in the gut.” This statement holds some truth to even this day. The key role our digestive system plays in our health and wellbeing cannot be underestimated. Your gut health is essential if you want to look and feel at your best.
Evergreen stocks a number of digestive support supplements and foods that help to support your gut health and aid your digestion naturally. Digestive support supplements such as probiotics, digestive enzymes, and aloe vera help to aid the body in dealing with digestive disturbances which may arise.
You can also support and enhance your digestive system and overall health through the power of food. This is where fermented foods come into play. Fermented foods are foods which have been through a process of lacto fermentation. This is where natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food, creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food, while also creating large numbers of beneficial enzymes, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics.
Benefits of eating fermented foods
Digestive health: Eating fermented foods and drinking fermented drinks like kefir and kombucha will introduce beneficial bacteria into your digestive system. Probiotic-rich foods also help to support bowel health, digestion, and the immune system.
Fermented foods for bowel health: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS ), Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and many other intestinal problems are the direct result of gut and digestive issues. They are also conditions that can be effectively alleviated and even reversed through improvement in diet and the inclusion of probiotic foods.
Improve your immunity: Did you know that an estimated 80 per cent of your immune system is actually located in your gut? Poor digestive/gut health automatically leads to a compromised immune system.
Better nutrient absorption: A healthy balance of gut bacteria and digestive enzymes is essential for ensuring your body is capable of absorbing nutrients from the food you eat.
Make your own: It is very cost effective, if you are willing to make your own fermented foods at home, and they can last for months. Lacto-fermentation allows you to store these foods for longer periods of time without losing the nutrients like you would with other traditional preservation methods.
The following foods and drinks are packed full of natural probiotics: kombucha, kefir, tempeh, sauerkraut, sourdough bread, miso, apple cider vinegar, natural yogurt, and kimchi.
If you would like more information on fermented foods or on any of the products mentioned call into your local Evergreen store, where the team will be happy to help.
