In the Cottage Garden - September 2012

by -

Finally coming to the end of the season and despite the rain, rabbits and other bugs, we had a pretty good crop for my first year. We are nearly at the end of the potatoes but have enjoyed many bowls of leek and potato soup (with the homegrown leeks of course!). Strawberries, peas and beans are a distant memory. We are enjoying the kale at the moment but that will be the last of our achievements. Unfortunately with the lack of pollinating butterflies, the damsons and apples haven't been successful this year, but I believe our weather is on a cycle so I have every hope for next year! I've learnt a lot about what works, what doesn't and what I want to do more of next year, so stay tuned!

  • "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
