We sponsor the efforts of ShelterBox by purchasing complete boxes to provide immediate and vital relief to families affected by international tragedy. Pakistan is facing one the world’s greatest environmental floods and people have lost everything. We know that this support will impact people directly and regularly support ShelterBox. Our new box will be on its way in just a day or so.
The boxes will be flown to Islamabad, Pakistan, where they will be distributed to displaced families by ShelterBox local partners, the NRSP (National Rural Support Programme).
Each ShelterBox contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, a stove, blankets and other items essential for survival.
This disaster is still evolving as the flood water moves further south towards the Arabian Sea displacing thousands more people as it spreads. Our hearts go out to everyone caught up in the disaster.
If you would like to contribute to ShelterBox and help these families cope, then visit their web site and donate whatever you feel you can manage.
Karen Devine, one of our long standing technical support team launched her new project ‘Devine Detox’ in Italy this summer. A week of naturopathic oriented cleansing, juice fasting, colon cleansing, and supplements to support detoxification and elimination made this a very successful week in terms of results.
Having been faciliting detox retreats for several years, I decided to launch Devine Detox to allow me to help address some of most common issues we find in our clinic such as stubborn weight gain, adrenal fatigue, hormonal and gut issues.
The largest range of supplements I used were from the Biotics range which I found supported the liver detoxification far better than I had experienced in the past. For many people who attend a retreat they often ‘expect’ side effects in order to feel their detox is working. However, with the correct support the body can do a great deal of work without you feeling you are being put through any unwanted and undesirable symptoms.
The beneficial effects were much greater than I anticipated as I ensured greater support in Phase 2 liver detoxification and adrenal support. The main ‘side effects’ from this week was the significant amount of weight loss, a lift in energy and a feeling of renewal experienced by all of the detoxers. The Biotics range of products are certainly staying in the Devine Detox programme.
My patients lost an average of 10lbs in the days enrolled, without feeling tired or distressed, their skin and breathing as well as clarity of thought and energy were all reported to greatly improve.
Due to the success in Italy other dates and a new venue are now being launched.
