Making a quick bread to go with a curry is essential in my opinion. These yoghurt flatbreads were seasoned with complementary spices. That makes this recipe extremely versatile and will be a regular feature for curry dinners.
I am sure everyone who is reading this blog post has heard the term fight or flight. It is the body’s adrenal reaction to danger, stemming from the beginning of time. Adrenaline rushes through our system allowing us to take the appropriate action. In my case, even though I have an adrenaline rush, somehow I neither fight nor flee! This possibly stems to an incident that occurred when I was much younger. And now my body just stops. When the dog attacks occured I could not fight, and nor could I flee. In the first instance I had to keep Holly away from what was going on. And in the last attack I had to take care of Holly. My muscles were storing all the trauma and shock and left over adrenaline. I turned first to Rescue Remedy for both the dogs and myself as I know it works.

And then I looked to exercise to help release the tension. There is a school of thought that causing a tremor reaction in your muscles is good for trauma release. One method involved only two exercises, the first being a wall squat. This is followed by lying in the butterfly pose and then bringing the knees together until the tremors start. As I could not fatigue my quadriceps enough to make this work., I tried a second regime. This one consisted of 7 exercises but ended with the same result for me. Then I remembered that I could induce the tremor by stretching my hamstrings while lying down. I use a towel over the arch of my foot and get a decent stretch down the hamstring, one leg at a time. I just held it there and allowed the tremors to occur, healing my body.
