1- The Government must tell the truth about the climate and wider ecological emergency, reverse inconsistent policies and work alongside the media to communicate with citizens.
2-The Government must enact legally binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025 and to reduce consumption levels.
3- A national Citizen’s Assembly to oversee the changes, as part of creating a democracy fit for purpose. We are in an age of abrupt climate breakdown & ecocide. It’s time to take action. You can join us – this is your movement & future too.

I think I was around 9 or 10 when I started getting frequent migraines. I had suffered the odd terrible headache and possibly migraine before that, but this was the age I remember they really put their hooks into my life. I relied heavily on painkillers and off course darkened rooms with no noise.
Back then I actually had a diet massively lacking in fresh fruit and vegetables and instead heavily processed foods. I literally never drank water. My main drink supply during childhood was squash, or later on it was sweet soda drinks like coke and irn bru.
My digestion wasn’t so good but I don’t remember much about that and didn’t have chronic symptoms that I remember until my teens when I started to become bloated and have bad acne and hormonal issues.
It has taken this long to find my triggers and do something long term about them (I’m now 42). Medication stopped working for me many years ago, it was hit and miss and I officially binned the painkillers about 3-4 years ago.
What works for me to prevent them:
Lots of water
A diet FULL of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Back neck and should massages
Foods I have reduced massively and are my triggers:
Smoked Salmon (this was the only processed food I was eating)
Fatty Foods/Rich foods/Too many different combination foods
(These are all foods which are high histamine – research high histamine foods to see which others you might need to avoid or reduce).
What I do when I have a migraine starting:
I use doTERRA CPTG Essential Oils – the purest on the planet: Peppermint and Lavender almost neat around my entire hairline, forehead and back of the neck every hour. Some people also swear by Copaiba and also Frankincense. Also a blend that doTERRA do called Past Tense is also very effective and worth a try. One size does not fit all so its good to experiment and see. Click here to enter my shop, or send me an email to email@example.com to arrange a 1-2-1 consultation in person or on skype.
Very Cold Coconut Water (2 litres to be drunk within a couple of hours of each other) – you can watch the video below and see why this works. I came across this accidentally as I found I was CRAVING coconut water and it seems there’s scientific evidence as to why this helps!
Water with 2 drops of CPTG Peppermint Oil
A strong black coffee
There is a link with people that get migraines and not having enough GABA in the diet. Research this and see if this could be you.
Structural issues and more serious issues can also cause migraines (especially new ones out of the blue), so its good to check this out too. I know regular migraines are also a nice preventative for me.
This talks a lot of the importance of electrolyte balance and the hyper excitability of a migraine brain. Interesting.
The first 3 months of a baby’s life …. are in some traditions referred to as the 4th trimester in pregnancy. In a few days Suki and I will be leaving this delicate and watery realm as she turns 3 months old. I’m still so blissed out at having this sweet human life transcend me into motherhood. And so eternally grateful. Every day I’m in wonderment at her and more in love with her. How blessed we have been. Many people have made a huge difference to me during this 3 month journey. I know I can knock modern healthcare professionals, but the staff at the hospital were mainly amazing. One doctor, Kate, showed such care towards me as I was given a blood transfusion, and countless midwives who took care of me were just awesome. I can’t remember hardly any of their names now because of the other realm I was in at the time! Amy, taking me to hospital, being with me through the journey of Suki arriving and being SUCH a support in countless ways… And since then, so many sweet friends dropping by food, doing washing up for me, giving me massages, generous gifts, being with me and my tears in my washed out tender moments – reminding me of my ok-ness. I have tried to hold strong to keeping this 3 month transit as quiet a time as I can .. and try not to castrate myself when I make mistakes or feel inadequate. In this modern world, I know many women do not give themselves the opportunity to rest and receive after birth and I wish more than anything that new mothers get to experience what I did and have support for their tenderness at hand. Rest woman, rest. Be. Listen. Feel. Open. And know you will never experience anything more touching and precious. I would have plummetted into the cold and dark postnatal depression if it hadn’t been for allowing my vulnerable voice to be heard by close friends and my fairy godmother so that the clenched anxieties, exhausted embodied emotions could be seen and released. And they are still being heard, as I continue this intense, sweet voluptuous road .. and then they are passed into the wind with each sigh. What a delicate and sacred time for a mother and her own inner child …. all the facets of woman show up to dance their stories here … as I tend to the earth beneath Suki and her beginning in this life … <3

Transforming the Menopause Stigma
With Melanie Wartho
This workshop is open to women of all ages and will deal specifically with our time before, during and after menopause.
The menopause, like menstruation, is seen as a burden, something that we shouldn’t discuss except in negative and unhealthy terms.
The intention of this workshop is to dispel the myths surrounding menopause and to help us to find the immensity of the new powers as healers and grandmothers that we have access to, when we know how to find it.
Too many times have we heard comments from women about their fear of the menopause before they have it along with women who see the menopause as a bad thing and therefore relate to any symptoms they may have as purely difficult, and those women who believe that now they are menopausal, or that when the menopause comes, their life has no meaning and that they are barren and therefore worthless with a life that will be empty.
Now is the time to relearn the positive truths about ourselves as menopausal and post menopausal women.
This workshop is specifically for you if you recognise any of the above feelings either in yourself or someone close.
DATE: Weds 7th November and Weds 14th November
TIME: 7pm til 9.30pm
VENUE: Windyridge House, First Tower, St Helier, JE2 3HR – Parking is limited, please contact for car sharing or check facebook page
COST: £20 per night or £35 for both events in the series
About Melanie Wartho:
Mel has been living and working in South America for 23 years, during this time she has travelled extensively in Argentina, lived in Bolivia, travelled through Central America and lived in Ecuador and ultimately Peru. It is during her time in Ecuador that she first chose to work closely with local Shamen and healers for her own personal healing, as she progressed she began to facilitate the healing of others and learn more about the old traditions and the wisdom of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. She has been working with native healers and shamen now for 13 years. She embarked upon a Vision Quest following the tradition of the Lakota people and has also completed 4 years of Sundance, she has studied with a Shuar healer in the jungle of Ecuador, and ultimately has spent 2 years working with and learning from Shamen in the jungle of Peru. She brings with her a lot of the knowledge and wisdom of the people who are still very connected to nature, working with plant medicines and listening to what nature has to tell us.
sed for over 3500 years, the immune system that gives plants their plant power, is finally beginning to get the recognition it deserves. Taken to a higher level altogether with the purity standards set by doTERRA, their healing potential has become accessible worldwide and more and more over the counter medicines are being ditched in favour of this natural medicine.
These days we really do have a choice to learn more about how they can help us personally so we can become empowered in our health and wellbeing.
If you use oils or want to learn how to bring them into your life on a daily basis to reap the incredible benefits then this is a great opportunity to bump up your knowledge or get you off on the right foot.
