Elberberry Syrup

Elderberry is a deciduous shrub which is native to most of Europe. It’s well known and valued within the field of Natural Health for its broad medicinal qualities . Elderberry can be used to prepare syrups, juices and tinctures, the most common ingredients being flowers or the characteristic black berries. Elderberry is traditionally used to boost immunity and aid in colds, or even just as a healthy and tasty addition to tea, especially during the colder months of Autum and Winter.

Elderberry’s flowers and berries contain a high amount of flavonoids which have a strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and duretic qualities. The berries contain vast amounts of Vitamins B and C which are crucial for optimal metabolism and immunity.

It is important to note that Elderberry stems, leaves and roots contain cyanide-inducing glycosides which can cause nausea, vomiting and can lead to a toxic build up.

This is why a proper preparation of Elderberry is of a crucial importance.

Elderberry Syrup

Elderberry syrup is traditionally used to aid in dealing with symptoms of colds and flu. it can also serve as a tasty addition to flavour teas and desserts. The Syrup is a rich source of Vitamin B and C so it’s especially useful during Autum/Winter season.

Recipe

To prepare an Elderberry Syrup, you will need:

  • 1kg of Elderberry berries
  • approx 1kg of sugar (or other sweetener, honey works just as well!)
  • water

Elderberries don’t have any particular taste to them so feel free to spice the recipe up by adding some orange, lemon, ginger or turmeric!

Wash the berries throughly (but watch out, they STAIN!) before placing in the pan and covering with sugar and topping up with enough water to ensure a slight coverage.

Cook on medium heat until the berries release all juices (you could speed it up by mashing them a little).

Simmer for another 10-15 minutes until you reach desired thickness.

Leave to cool before straining and transferring into clean jars or bottles. Elderberry Syrup can be pausterised for longer self-life or just kept in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

Enjoy as 2 tablespoons per day on its own on in a nice cup of tea.

What Happened in Our Clinic This week

What happened in our Clinic this week? Homeopathy

Shared with patient’s permission:

47 years old lady, suffering from inflamed varicose veins with the beginning of varicose eczema.
The problem started 19 years ago after giving birth to her first child and, since then, it got gradually worse.

After 1 month of homeopathic treatment, her veins were less inflamed and not as tender to touch anymore.
After 3 months, the whole area became lighter in colour and appearance of the veins has much improved.

“I’m very pleased with the treatment, my leg looks and feels much better, I can bear to stand at work for longer without having to suffer for it when I get back home. I thought I was going to have to resort to surgery but now I’m hoping to avoid it”

What about Mental Health?

We’re in the middle of the Mental Health Awareness Week.

I am aware that there are so many weeks and days dedicated to certain illnesses and syndromes but Mental Health has been, up until very recent years, something not openly spoken about.

The trend used to be: is you can’t physically see any changes, it’s not a real illness, so just ‘get on with it’…

…and so people did.

Covering up their depression more than they would some ungainly scars.

Avoiding anxiety-triggering situations just as they would waterlogged roads.

But the problem was: things like this seldom got better on their own.

One trend remained: suppression.

Just like suppressing any unwanted spots with creams, people started suppressing their unwanted emotions. Emotions they didn’t feel comfortable with or emotions they knew others would not approve of, after all, we live in an era where if you don’t fit a rigid image of perfection, your worth as a person is greatly diminished.

So we go on, putting pressure on ourselves in order to fit in certain rigid frames of what is now considered a ‘norm’ for being a man, woman, mother, father, worker, friend, etc. and often forget to nourish what makes us so much more than just our role, label or title.

The truth is that nobody has come to this world with a full set of copying skills. This is something we all pick up on our journey of life. So next time you look at someone and think that they ‘have it good’ for whatever reason, don’t be so quick to make this assumption. Most of us have learnt by now how to hide our doubts and fears.

Another truth is: we are all suffering. Β There is not a person in this world who wouldn’t carry doubt, fear, sadness or grief in their hearts at some point in their lives… and it’s okay. What is not okay is making it sound like some sort of phenomenon… or making people feel isolated because, all of a sudden, they don’t fit the mold anymore.

We are all conected by our experiences and the experience of suffering is a universal one; but what makes your suffering different to the suffering of any other person is You.

There might be another person suffering from depression but their depression might be hiding under an overly friendly fascade whilst all you want to do is sit in your bedroom with the curtains drawn shut- who’s to say which one of you is suffering more?

There might be another person suffering from anxiety, yet their anxiety can involve the trouble of getting out of the house, whilst yours centres around fear of dogs- who’s to say which one is more valid?

Some people can start having mental health problems after witnessing an act of violence, accident, grief, dissapointment, unexpected news or difficulties… there is not one reason which would make your difficulties more or less valid than those of anyone else.

Yes, we might be sharing a collective experience of mental health problems but their very expression will be different, filtered through the scope of each one of ours life experiences and symptoms.

Fortunately, talking therapies, like counselling and CBT are becoming increasingly popular, and rightly so!

Another approach, which could be used alongside any other therapy or on it’s own is homeopathy.

Homeopathic treatment doesn’t treat just your depression or anxiety but puts a focus on you as a whole person with the symptoms you are experiencing and that what caused them- what is it about you that made you so sensitive or vulnerable to develop them in the first place– and, through discovering of all that, choosing the most appropriate aproach to treatment.
