Our first Irish Health Found Wellness Day

Yesterday we hosted our first Sauna Day in Nature at Myrtleville in Cork. The short day-retreat, set in nature on the grounds of 17th century Myrtleville House, was designed to introduce guests to:

  • An experience of deep breathing and the reasons why it helps body and mind.
  • An experience of saunas/heat-shock and what it does for promoting good health.
  • An experience of awareness and techniques for staying mindful and powerful.

Multiple world record holder, Wim Hof, is a Dutch advocate of deep breathing who created the Wim Hof technique. He has been very vocal about how higher oxygen levels in the blood and brain can produce new body chemistry that results in powerful healing of the body and mind!

We brought in a sauna from The Warming Wagon to demonstrate and discuss how heat shock promotes healing and wellness. Dr Rhonda Patrick of Found My Fitness in the US has done some amazing research on this to show it prolongs life, rebalances body chemistry and promotes healing.

For the final part of the day we had a Buddhist monk from Mitchelstown temple called Rumpai Kaenkul (he’s on Facebook @watmahadhatuireland) to walk us through a beautiful meditation while he shared his teachings about mindfulness and awareness. Very inspiring I must say.

We hope to do something similar again in the future as a retreat day again and also as a community event at Inch beach in Cork and a talk some evening at our soon to be opening Irish Health Found Centre in Douglas Cork.

Hope to see you there sometime! 🙂

This Irish Life Podcast 22 – Grow Your Own Organic Food -Part 1 of 3

The boys havin da craic, chatting about the best ways to grow food in your home and garden. In the world of today we have somehow become brainwashed to think that it is okay to eat large amounts of rubbish, processed, dead food that travels half way across the world to our local supermarket and then we buy it and eat it. Most of this food is covered in pesticides, herbicides and who knows what else before it reaches your local store. They are often sprayed with chemicals to preserve them, keep their colour and prevent them rotting too fast. This is madness and so far from our natural state of being. This approach to food makes us sick and keeps us sick. Growing your own food leads to a range of benefits from health to money, to lifestyle and positivity, this is a must-consider for anyone looking to live a better life. Running through the super-importance of soil and what to plant in. How to plant. What to plant. When to plant. The best tips for quick learning. Plus of course a Bollox Alert that may surprise you, a Hot Topic that is curing cancer and plenty of banter….

Also available as a video where you can see Shooz and Dug in the studio – available on YouTube at the link below.
