Journalling vs. Tuning In: What’s the difference?

Tamra MerciecaMental HealthLeave a Comment

Journalling is a beautiful, and ridiculously cheap way of processing challenges and traumas and simply making sense of life. I consider journalling like emptying out the mind-trash that drains our energy, keeps us in an anxious state and stops us from being able to sleep at night. Because that’s essentially what it is. You get a pen and blank journal … Read More

The pelvic floor demystified

The pelvic floor is generally a part of the body that we rarely give thought to. That is, until we experience a problem with it, such as incontinence or lower back pain.

The spiritual power of menstruation

Tamra MerciecaSexual Health4 Comments

Let me start by saying… Menstruation is not a curse. Menstruation is not a royal pain in the backside, or an inconvenient interruption to our life. Menstruation is our wise-time. A time for rest, radical self-care, inner reflection and deep healing. Menstruation is the one time every month we’re given the opportunity to go inside, uncover the ‘stuff’ that’s no … Read More

What tampons are doing to your womb

Tamra MerciecaSexual Health4 Comments

Tampons. They’re convenient. But are they healthy? No. Even the natural ones are doing harm to your uterus. Let me explain… Once a month our womb (uterus) cleanses itself.  This is what we call our ‘period’.  Other organs in the body also keep themselves healthy by doing cleanses.  For example, each night the liver cleanses our blood, our bladder empties … Read More

Is he/she my soulmate?

Tamra MerciecaRelationship HealthLeave a Comment

‘Is he/she my soulmate?’ This is a question I get asked a lot, especially from the women I work with one-on-one. ‘When will I meet my soulmate?’ ‘How will I know it’s him/her?’ ‘Am I in the wrong relationship?’ ‘What if my husband is not my soulmate?’ Such seemingly big questions if you, like most people, buy into the ‘soulmate’ … Read More

Are you at risk of sexual organ prolapse?

Tamra MerciecaSexual Health, Uncategorized1 Comment

Prolapse. It’s a scary thought; your sexual organs falling down and out of your vaginal canal.
