Are U Really Alive stands for AURA.
Background on what the name stands for
People who have more energy naturally feel more alive than those who have less energy. People who start adding ‘living’ food in their diet have found they have significantly more energy, therefore they feel more alive and are happier.

Why might this be?
Research shows there is an invisible but measurable ‘energy’ field that surrounds all living things This invisible ‘energy’ field, which surrounds all living things, appears to be larger on people who have more energy for life and who are healthier. Some people have called this energy field an AURA.

This energy field or AURA is detectable by a specialised camera invented in Russia by Dr Kirlian 30 years
ago which has been further developed by Dr Konstantin Korotkov President of the International Union of Medical and Applied Bioelectrography, Deputy Director of St Petersburg Research Institute of Sport and St Petersburg State Technical University of Informational Technologies, Mechanics
and Optics.

Living plants have been found to have more of this energy field when they are alive as opposed to the same plant that has been cooked. By ingesting ‘living’ and therefore uncooked food, which has a measurably pronounced invisible ‘energy’ field, will enhance the invisible energy field of the person eating it. This is measurable on a Kirlian Camera such as Dr Korotkov’s GDV (Gas Discharge Visualisation) camera. At the same time the person usually feels they have more energy available to them.

When our AURA is glowing we feel more alive and energetic.

Bio of Nadia Brydon

Nadia Brydon MNIMH. Dip Phyt. MRCHM. Dip Ac. MAR. MBRCP, HMA (Student Member) has been involved in Complementary and Alternative Medicine for over 20 years. She currently runs a private Herbal Medicine and natural health practice offering one to one consultations in London. In addition she runs classes, one day seminars and evening tutorials on detoxification, juicing, sprouting, raw food prep demos and how to live a healthy life. Over the years she has been quoted in the media, most recently in Metro and live on New Style Radio and BBC Southern Counties Radio.

For the last 4 years Nadia has worked part time as Senior Therapist for The London Haven. The London Haven is a Charity offering free support, education and Complementary Therapies to anyone affected by breast cancer.

Nadia has qualifications in Western Herbal Medicine, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Bowen Therapy, Iridology, Vodder Lymph Drainage Massage, sports injuries and Ayurvedic Massage Therapy. She is presently completing her training in Homeopathy. In addition she qualified in Florida as an Hippocrates Health Educator and in California as an Associate Raw and Living Food Chef and Instructor. She is presently undertaking a part time MSc at Westminster University in Advanced Professional Practice.

She is a Member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists, Register of Chinese Herbal Medicine, Association of Reflexologists, British Register of Complementary Practitioners and a Student Member of the Homeopathic Medical Association.

She has travelled, lived or studied in over 40 countries world wide in search of the definitive answer to the nature of disease and most importantly the nature of Health. This search has led her to study many different philosophies and disciplines of medicine from conventional to natural and traditional medicine throughout the world. Most significantly to the USA, Russia, China, Mexico, Sri Lanka, The Maldive Islands and Egypt.

Nadia had her own full time practice in Devon for 10 years up to January 2004 and during that time was a regular speaker on Herbal Medicine for many groups and organisations in the West Country. She has lectured at both Westminster and Middlesex Universities and was one of the principal lecturers for 4 years on the Herbal Medicine pathway at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London and Dublin. In September 2005 she lectured in Sri Lanka to many hundreds of doctors and students at The Ayurvedic Research Institute, University of Wayamba and University of Kelaniya in Colombo.

In August 2005 Nadia went to Sri Lanka for 4 weeks as part of a 26 member Acupuncture team, called Acupuncture sans Frontieres treating the Tsunami victims in 4 camps in the South of the country where it was so badly hit by the wave on 26th December. Along with the other members of the team Nadia treated many thousands of people over 3 weeks with Acupuncture and Homeopathy.

Nadia feels her medical heritage is very significant to her own calling as a natural health practitioner. She comes from a long line of doctors in Russia, the most notable of whom was her great grand father who was for many years Physician to the Empress and presided as Physician at the birth of the last Tsar, Tsar Nicholas. In the 17th century on her English side, one of her ancestors was a leading herbalist who wrote a book on Herbal Medicine. Still others were well known plantsmen, famous for their gardens throughout the UK.

Nadia has boundless energy, dedication and passion for showing people how to find more peace, sunshine and joy in their lives by teaching how to live in closer harmony with nature. She specializes in Naturopathic techniques such as detoxification with herbs and raw and living foods and teaches how and why ultimately NATURE IS OUR GREATEST HEALER AND TEACHER.
