The Soul of Yoga - "Without self-knowledge we cannot go beyond the mind" Jiddah Krishnamutri

Some people seek homeopathic treatment with no specific illness. Perhaps they are feeling out of sorts, with minor symptoms that show in a lack of vitality and/or energy; some may come with a particular complaint seeking to get to the ‘root’ cause of it and to find a permanent solution, without connecting it to the underlining cause of stress.
Before he became a homeopath Pierre was involved in Care and Education, working his way from care assistant to care manager and finally specialising in training Care staff from a wide portfolio of statutory and holistic trainings related to Care and Education of people with special needs.

Stress is a name given to a combination of emotions linked to survival which can be responsible for negative effects on us both mentally and physically.
Our current ordered and controlled lifestyles make us more vulnerable to stress and as individuals, although it is difficult, we need to be able to take responsibility for managing our own stress levels for optimal health.
Stress is a major cause of illness and disease and is often known as the disease of modern living. It can result from any situation requiring change and is not only caused by traumatic events such as bereavement, unexpected redundancy and divorce but also more positive changes such as getting married, having a baby and moving to a new home.
Firstly let me make it clear that stress makes you sick, stupid and powerless. I know that might sound somewhat drastic but so is the epidemic of stress that blights our modern life. Anyone can be stressed at any age from babies to the elderly.
We rush through our days, eat the wrong food, have unpleasant and scary things happen, put up with less than inspiring jobs and even worse less than fulfilling relationships, so what can you do about improving things?
It is easier than you think to make a start towards getting a life that does fulfil you and makes you happy. Just believing that it is possible is a major step for many people. We have all developed beliefs about life and how we must live it, throughout our lives, however most of these beliefs are set up in our childhood and lots are based on incorrect, missing or simply outdated information.
