In the Cottage Garden - May 2012

by -

Well time hasn't been on my side this month but the garden is well under way now, lots of digging and forking over the earth and adding lots of goodness to it too. Out of the blue a man turned up one day whilst I was taking a break from the digging and offered me a huge pile of quality manure… I took it all from him and we now have a well fed rich patch of garden ripe for planting. The rain has been welcomed by all gardeners and I have taken the advantage of planting my first crop of potatoes. I have also planted beans and peas in pots in the greenhouse in readiness for planting out later this month. And herbs…. Lots of lovely garden herbs to use in salads and cooking thyme, parsley, marjoram, mint, sage and oregano; these will flourish and add aroma to the garden too.

  • "I had been back and forth to my GP with various digestive complaints including bloating, acid reflux, alternating constipation and diarrhoea and abdominal pain. My GP prescribed me laxatives and tablets for the acid reflux. I decided I was far too young at 36 years old to be having these problems and went to Natural Solutions. Andrea assessed all of my symptoms, looked at my diet and lifestyle and came up with a detailed but not overwhelming plan for me.  I felt someone was finally listening to me. Andrea suggested I try a gluten free diet among other things and try this for a month to see how that affected my symptoms. Wow! What a difference it has made. I no longer have the above symptoms. I no longer take any medication. I have energy, I rarely get a headache and it's made a huge difference to my Fibromyalgia symptoms.  At first it seemed a little daunting to be making such a huge change to my diet but Andrea was there with lots of recipe ideas and helpful tips. Andrea also took me to the local health food shop and gave me plenty of suggestions and alternatives. I would recommend Natural Solutions to everyone. "Tanya Mitchell
