WHATS HOT JULY 2020

NEW REMEDY DRINK 'SIGN NOW AVAILABLE FOR HOME DELIVERY WORLDWIDE

Abbie Leek, founder of SIGN, was enjoying herself with some friends at a beach bar in Ibiza in 2017 when rain funschetireoanlised just how little the bars and cafes had on offer in the way of uplifting refreshments that replenish the body’s lost salts and nutrients.

Abbie researched ways to restore the body and mind when feeling dehydrated and fatigued. She found a recipe called Sole (a salt water solution) in Ayurvedic medicine (referred to the building blocks of life). With a little adaptation she decided to use this ancient remedy as the base for her innovative drink.

Abbie envisioned SIGN, a delicious drink packed with nutrients and vitamins such as B6, B12 and Magnesium made from the purest of ingredients – orange and lemon juice (not from concentrate, Organic Palmyra Blossom nectar (a natural sugar) and Himalayan rock salt. SIGN launched their 250ml slimline last summer and began promoting wellbeing and balance at some of the biggest international festivals. And now to cater to everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic they are happy to announce the launch of their online shop www.drinksign.com

The team at SIGN are also passionate about mental health support for people in the music scene and beyond. This is why they have partnered with ‘We are Hummingbird’ a charity that provides mental health first aid info, support and prevention. SIGN has committed to donating 5% of its profits towards this charity.

Scientists have yet to firmly comprehend the intricacies of a disease that remains elusive when it comes to its causes and treatments. While there is no cure for this debilitating disease, new research shows great promise when meditation and yoga are introduced as a preventive measure. Dr. Shuvendu Sen, recipient of the prestigious Nautilus Silver Award in 2018, explains how this works in Why Buddha Never Had Alzheimer’s: A Holistic Treatment Approach through Meditation, Yoga and the Arts.

Regimens like meditation and yoga, nurtured and practiced for thousands of years and backed up by today’s research, are viable choices of cure and care in Alzheimer’s dementia. Using fascinating case histories from his patients, and studies from some of America’s top medical institutions,

Dr. Sen also examines the benefits of music therapy, virtual reality, touch therapy, and holistic medicine. This ground-breaking book brings into focus how the mind functions, gives us a clearer understanding of Alzheimer’s, and offers optimism and hope for the future.

SPLITTING, THE INSIDE STORY OF HEADACHES

BY AMANDA ELLISON – 11TH JUNE

Did you know… – that chocolate can prevent headaches? – that 30% of us sneeze at sunlight? – that you can see off a headache with an orgasm? – or that you shouldn’t wear a striped top if your spouse gets migraines?

In this revelatory, fascinating and accessible guide to headaches, leading neuroscientist Amanda Ellison lifts the lid on head pain – from what causes migraines to how sinus pain happens to whether we should just reach for the painkillers and ignore the root causes.

Offering clear differentiations between the different types of headache that even GPs don’t readily provide, as well as practical advice, this book will offer clear guidance and help to discover what is really causing your headaches. What is your body trying to tell you?

It is full of funny, everyday, down-to- earth stories and anecdotes about how and why people get headaches. In researching the book, Amanda spoke to people who suffer from various forms of headache, clinicians and researchers in various fields and the book provides a sorely needed overall view of where we stand in this painful area.

I’m sure there are days at the moment we could all use a little understanding on how to avoid headaches.

INTROSPECTIVE COLLECTION OF POEMS “PAUSING MINDFULLY” DELVES INTO MEDITATION AND THE EARTHLY EXISTENCE

Composed of a volume of poems inspired by the insights and transformation that a meditator experiences, Riitta H Rutanen Whaley’s new book “Pausing Mindfully” reflects on a diverse range of topics and encourages readers to look within for the answers to life’s most pressing questions.

The poignant collection vividly chronicles her inner journey, revealing her views on environmental changes and the practice of meditation, as well as the impacts of engaging with people in conflict. Rutanen Whaley said, “I started meditating and later writing about my experiences, because I yearned for understanding and meaning for life on this Earth. My hope is that in sharing what I have learned, I would inspire others to pause in the middle of today’s world of ceaseless interruptions, distractions, and suffering. When I have explored the present moment with kind curiosity, it has usually guided me toward more skillful action and toward moments of self-compassion and peace within.”

A practitioner of yoga and meditation since 1987, her work is informed by her extensive and powerful experiences recovering from her own health challenges while working and living in a variety of emerging countries.

“Pausing Mindfully” is available for purchase on Amazon, Apple Books, Barnes and Noble, and a range of online booksellers. Further details about the book can be found at www.pausingmindfully.com.

YOGA THERAPY AS A WHOLE-PERSON APPROACH TO HEALTH

BY LEE MAJEWSKI AND ANANDA BALAYOGI BHAVANANI WITH A FOREWORD BY STEPHEN PARKE

The book explores yoga therapy as a multifaceted approach to wellness, beyond alleviating symptoms with asanas and breathing. Lee Majewski and Ananda Bhavanani, both respected and renowned yoga therapists and practitioners, define yoga and yoga therapy as a whole person practice, demonstrating how it can help the individual to heal through their own mechanisms. The authors bring yogic concepts from theory into everyday life, exploring how yoga therapy can work with all levels of a human being at the same time (physical, energetic, emotional, intellectual and spiritual) and demonstrating that, when applied correctly, it can assist healing and facilitate an improved quality of life.

The book covers deep yogic work and how it applies to cancer patients, as well as a range of other chronic conditions including respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. For each of these conditions the authors explore how yoga therapy can go beyond alleviating symptoms and work to heal the whole person.

This is comprehensive authoritative guide suited to both novices and the more experienced practitioner. The book is expected to help move forward the inclusion of this information in the curriculum of teacher training programs and become a required text. A must have for every yoga teacher and therapist’s professional library.

CHAKRATRAX BY ROB DAVIS

Ambient music reimagined around yoga for easy listening and chill out
Listen here: http://open.spotify.com/ album/4xDzmS6wv1idC6yJeWImCC

Rob Davis, UK’s most prolific and successful musician and producer, brings to you CHAKRATRAX- cutting- edge ambient tracks for yoga routines or classes. Chakratrax is a mesmerising new album of 7 ambient tracks created in Ibiza by Rob. The album works gloriously as a chill out and relaxing listen for all, and also for yoga practitioners as a soundtrack to their yoga routines or classes. Fully embracing yoga practice, the tunes move from a grounding base, settling and centring feel, to an upbeat and energising groove, and close in a place of balance and calm following the Chakra energetic pathway.

This is not only a fresh take on ambient chill but it also works perfectly well for yoga practitioners and instructors as the background to their classes.

THE MAN BEHIND CHAKRATRAX – ROB DAVIS
Surprisingly, Rob began his career in music as the lead guitarist of legendary 70’s rock band Mud creating a very different kind of vibe. His career moved on into song writing and production, and famously he co-wrote Kylie’s Can’t Get You Out of My Head plus many popular dance tunes from the 80’s onwards until today, along the way working with the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Mika, Spiller and Fragma to name a few.

Rob’s inspiration for this album comes from his love of yoga, Ibiza and ambient dance tracks.

“Being a guitar player in a band

doing lots of touring, no sleep,

bad food and lack of exercise,

I found yoga when I was quite

young. I had yoga classes and

relaxing in mind when I wrote

this this chilled electronic

ambient album”.

ROB DAVIS

What listeners have said –
“Best chill tracks I’ve heard for years”
