Struggling With Two Steps Backwards

17th March 2020

When it comes to health we’re all on different journeys. Sometimes you're winning, moving forward and making progress, other times you're astounded by you're inability to get going or keep going and just keep reversing back to start line.

Battling Body Confidence Issues?

15th March 2020

Do you know I don’t particularly like the way I look. My body, my face nor my hair. If you asked my honest opinion on any of the above, I’d present a critical assessment of them all. My face is too round, my teeth are too big, my hair is wavy in all the wrong directions and receding, I have bingo wings, so much cellulite and a tummy that triples in size at the first sign of stress, broccoli or beans. Yet I feel so ashamed telling you all this.

Why You Probably DON’T Have IBS

Don’t Ignore These Symptoms

23rd February 2020

When it comes to health there are many definitions and interpretations but one I think most practitioners agree upon is an individual being free from disease and the symptoms associated with it.

Guidance For Thyroid Support

3rd January 2020

An Avocado A Day Might Keep the Doctor Away

19th December 2019

The traditional saying encouraged us to grab an apple a day and more recently a digestive health expert suggested the humble onion maybe more beneficial, especially in terms of our supporting gut bacteria and immune system, however, the avocado is the shining star of some recent health research.

Let’s Talk About Stress

5th February 2019

Stress is a regular occurrence in life, you can't avoid it and neither should you necessarily always try to, however, you must absolutely control how it impacts your health. Last week I had a deep and meaningful chat with my parents. We were discussing the amount of things they take on in life including renovation projects, travelling, looking after family, etc. Whilst they love doing these things and I wouldn’t want them to stop it’s vital they observe the impact these activities may have on their health.

Raise a Glass to More of This

7th January 2019

It's that time of year again where you begin to consider what will work this time in your quest to be healthy. Maybe you should temporarily move into the gym, just live on celery dipped in fat free yogurt or not touch a carb until the clocks go forward. Many resolutions decided (or just contemplated) in January are usually missing actual solutions to the problems that affect your health negatively.

I have TWO important questions for you. A fundamental part of your health revolves around the relationships in your life. Those you spend the most time with are of course some of the most important.

There is nothing Hamish loves more than a good squirrel hunt, but for a long time he never came close to catching one, however, the other morning he did something which amazed me. Bizarrely, it also got me thinking about how people often approach to fat loss…. bear with.
