Handover of the Bristol Ayurveda Clinic

May 11, 2011

It has been a pleasure to share Ayurveda’s time less wisdom with you over the last few years but the time has now come to focus on my family, with Baby No 2 due in 4 weeks.  If you are not already signed up to my newsletter, please do so by dropping me an email, as this is the best way to keep in touch (comes out 4 times a year to tie in with the changing seasons). In the meantime, there are three excellent Ayurvedic therapists in Bristol to continue offering services in Bristol.

  • Ayurvedic Treatments will now be carried out with Ayurvedic therapist Marinella Benelli in her home clinic in Easton-  07856 125 677,,

Ayurvedic organic, cured sesame still available

I still have some remaining stock of this lovely oil for self-massage at home which can be purchased for the bargain price of £10 a litre if you bring your own glass bottle (or £13:50 supplied in a refillable glass bottle)- this will last you a while. Please email me over the next couple of weeks if you are interested on

Threat to the supply of herbal medicine, including Ayurvedic herbs

As you may know, there is a campaign against the new European THMPD (Traditional Herbal Medicinal Product Directive) calling the European Commission and EU Governments to amend the Directive, suspending the draconian measures against herbal medicines and removing all barriers to traditional remedies with a long history of use inside and outside Europe. We have a right to choose among all remedies and medicines that can keep ourselves and our families healthy. So, although the British newspaper The Guardian released an article on the 1st of May announcing “Herbal remedies banned as new EU rules take effect”, there is still time to act and campaign for the the EU to back down on its outrageous attempt to limit our rights and freedom to choose natural medicine and remedies. Please do keep asking your friends to connect on to get more signatures and do sign up yourself.

I do hope you are keeping well : )
