Naturopathist and Herbalist Eibhlín O’Callaghan to host clinic at ‘Tattie Hoaker’ in Roscommon  Health is much greater than just the absence of infirmity. It should be abundant vitality. This is the philosophy that guides the treatments of the naturopathist and herbalist Eibhlín O’Callaghan. Next Wednesday (2nd of April) customers and clients of the Goff Street healing centre and organic food store have the opportunity to experience the highly regarded Nature Cures that are growing in popularity across Ireland when Ms. O’Callaghan will hold a clinic from 10.00 am – 5.00 pm. Ms. O’Callaghan will visit the Tattie Hoaker every four weeks thereafter. Herbalism, detoxification, celloid mineral therapy, Bach flower remedies, and ear coning are some of the treatments that will offered to those who visit Tattie Hoaker. Eibhlín O’Callaghan ND MINA, Dip Herb, MIRH is a Sligo resident and is an eminently qualified Naturopath and Herbalist with a wealth of experience and knowledge in this area. Ms. O’Callaghan spent five an a half years studying at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in Dublin. Her treatments are recommended by the author, acupuncturist and traditional herbalist, Ms. Judith Hoade. The Tattie Hoaker is growing in popularity every week and recently added a new stocking of ultra life nutrition products and treatments to its range. The recent expansion that has led to the introduction of a healing centre with therapy room will facilitate Ms. O’Callaghan on Wednesday. Naturopathy is one of the healthcare treatments on offer at the Tattie Hoaker on Wednesday. Naturopathy is a system of health care that encourages and promotes the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms using a multi-system approach. Naturopathic medicine gets to the root cause of a person’s health problems, with an individual approach to suit your personal lifestyle and diet. Healing through diet – whole foods, dried herbs, herbal tinctures, minerals and natural supplements – is at the centre of naturopathy. The treatment also focuses on educating and empowering the person to take responsibility for his or her own health. Celloid Mineral Therapy is perhaps the most logical theory in the history of medicine. The theory is that without mineral compounds in the body the composition of cells would become defective. Mineral deficiency and disease are directly related. Today every human being has mineral deficiencies due to the chemical pollution of soil, water and air and the adulteration of the food chain. Celloids are particularly effective in dealing with inflammation and infection (due to lack of resistance). Celloids can also be used in bone fractures, cuts, bruises to aid cellular repair and regeneration. Detox is another treatment that is available at the Tattie Hoaker on Wednesday. Detoxification is the removal of toxic substances from the body. It is one of the major functions of the liver, lower gastrointestinal tract and kidneys. This natural bodily process is hastened and aided by the treatment that is available on Goff Street. Ear coning assists the natural clearing of earwax and removal of toxins from a person’s ear. It is also a useful treatment for sinusitis and other such illnesses. Ms. O’Callaghan will offer this treatment to visitors every fourth Wednesday. Bach flower remedies are dilutions of flower material developed by Edward Bach, an English physician and homeopath, in the 1930s. The remedies are used primarily for emotional and spiritual conditions, including anxiety, insomnia and stress. The remedies contain a very small amount of flower material in a 50:50 solution of water and brandy. Because the remedies are extremely dilute they do not have a characteristic scent or taste of the plant. The remedy contains the energetic signature of the flower, which is transmitted to the user. For more information on these and Eibhlín O’Callaghan’s other treatments contact 086 3587794 or 090 6630492 or email . Clients should allow an hour and a half for assessment. Eibhlín O’Callaghan will be at the Tattie Hoaker from 10.00 am – 5.00 pm on Wednesday the 2nd of April and every four weeks thereafter.
