    Neuroscientists are discovering how meditation affects the brain, medical researchers are analysing its health benefits and social scientists are showing how it can change our lives and our society. It has helped individuals with pain, chronic conditions, anxiety, depression to name a few. You can learn this inner art of listening and reap the health benefits by attending an 8 week course this September at the Ilkley Healing Centre. Your facilitator is an experienced Mindful Meditation teacher with over 20 years experience. For further information contact Eileen Mullard at or 07972194073. Her website is

    Recent research by a Yorkshire GP and Ilkley therapist shows that patients with chronic pain experienced improvement in symptoms and mobility after group sessions of EFT Tapping.

    Gwyneth Moss the therapist who led the tapping groups for the study is now offering these groups in Ilkley.  You can join a similar group to the research study at Ilkley Healing Centre on Thursdays at 5pm for just £15.

    The patients in the research study each attended four group sessions and their improvement was between 15% to 75%.

    Gwyneth says:  "EFT or tapping therapy is a simple, easily-learned and self-applied procedure.  Though you would not expect that tapping on face and body points whilst talking about your pain could make any difference at all, amazingly it does."    

    To book a place in the Thursday groups call Ilkley Healing Centre on 01943 600522.

    And come for a free introductory talk on Tuesday 16th June at 5pm also at Ilkley Healing Centre, 8 Nelson Road, LS29 8HN

    Weight Gain? Hormonally challenged? Feeling toxic?

    Here you are trying to lose weight, but something’s not quite right, you just don’t feel great. Or perhaps you've reached a plateau where the scales seem stuck, or the cravings are returning.
    As you lose weight, ‘fat-soluble’ toxic chemicals are released into your body. These toxins may impair thyroid function, interfere with hormone balance and metabolism, trigger blood sugar imbalances, affect insulin and even cause low-level inflammation throughout the body. The good news is you can bypass these problems by focusing on optimising liver function. Your liver is directly associated with metabolism, weight loss, oestrogen clearance and detoxification.

    Top Tips for Optimising Liver Function & Colon Cleanse

    • During the first week, avoid all dairy, wheat, and gluten, shifting the emphasis to vegetables, fruit, organic poultry, egg whites and gluten-free grains. A daily cup of black coffee is allowed.
    • During the second week introduce one eliminated food daily, to highlight any food intolerances or other negative reactions, such as bloating. Problem foods should be avoided for at least two weeks, and possibly until you achieve your perfect weight.
    • Fibre is necessary to help absorb toxins and keep bowel movements regular. Good sources include apple, pear, grapefruit, oats, brown rice, beans or legumes, artichoke, carob powder, flaxseeds and psyllium.
    • Other liver-boosting foods are almonds, coconut and quinoa.
    • If you can tolerate dairy, whey powder is great for the liver because it contains amino acids such as cysteine and glutathione, which are potent antioxidants and detoxifiers.
    • Of course, it goes without saying, drink 2 litres of filtered water daily!
    • Supplements and herbs aid a successful liver detox and gut cleanse (refer to last week's email).  Omega 3 fatty acids, B vitamins, magnesium, and herbs such as aloe vera, milk thistle, dandelion, globe artichoke, rosemary and bupleurum are all effective liver and gut cleansing agents.

    The therapists of Ilkley have come together to launch their new website.  Many people today are finding that complementary therapies can help them to relax, feel better and move on.  Ilkley has a history of healing and therapy dating back to the nineteenth century when Charles Darwin and many others came to take the waters. 

    Now there are many qualified and skilled therapists working in Ilkley.  Our new website has been designed to help you find people to help you.
