New Course on Toxins

Technological advances in modern life have led to many advantages but a side effect has been the increase in toxins in our environment. These toxins can trigger symptoms such as allergies, digestive disorders, mood swings, headaches amongst others.

 

Often we are surrounded by toxins such as hormone disruptors like BPA, processed foods filled with additives, pesticides, and preservatives, artificially produced fragrances, cosmetics full of sulphates, phthalates and parabens, and household chemical cleaning products.

Health Practitioner Kate Johnson’s brand new four-part course takes a look at the toxins you may have in your environment and how to reduce and eliminate them from your life.

 

The course starts Tuesday 12th June 11am-1pm at the Salus Sanctuary looking at Toxins On the Body.

Salus Fatigue Foundation was happy to be invited to address the 150 members of staff at this year’s England National Lottery Conference which took place on 15th March.

 

CEO Linda Jones’ presentation included the moving story of her own personal journey from when she first contracted M.E. through to her eventual recovery; the founding of an organisation to help others with chronic fatigue related conditions – the Salus Fatigue Foundation and how the funding received from bodies such as England National Lottery has had a significant positive impact in the communities that Salus reaches.

 

‘It was lovely to speak with so many members of staff after the presentation’ Linda Jones commented.

 

Salus received overwhelming enthusiastic and positive feedback from those who attended:

 

‘My seat was angled such that I could see very many of my colleague’s faces while we all listened to you… that image will stay with me alongside your words’

Salus unplugged with the UK Sepsis Trust

National charity organisation the UK Sepsis Trust invited Salus to take part in Sepsis Unplugged – a two-day conference featuring practical workshops and sessions held on 5th-6th February. As Sepsis often includes chronic fatigue symptoms, Salus’s CEO Linda Jones was invited to speak to health professionals from around the country about the work of the Fatigue Foundation and her own personal story of moving from ill health to recovery.

Sepsis survivors have been found to have some of the same symptoms as M.E./CFS and similarly also often find themselves left isolated with little or no support or education for recovery.

Both from the talk and at the stall, the Salus team were able to engage with health practitioners who wanted information on how to go about giving practical support people with signs of chronic fatigue.

Salus is expanding the organisation’s scope to reach out to people with chronic fatigue related conditions and sharing the organisation’s expertise, advice, support & compassion.
