I’ve realised lately that I’ve suffered a lot over the last few years from something I call “social guilt” Quite simply a sense of guilt when I take time out to see friends. It’s meant I have rarely allowed…
We received an email this week from an individual asking if nutritional therapy would be helpful for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). After years of suffering from bloating and constipation, they had finally managed to obtain a diagnosis from their GP and could begin to seek treatment.
It’s January and about to get noisy. Personal trainers will pick up the calorie deficit baton, 'Nutritionalists' lol will fill your feed with salads, smoothies, seeds and all things anti-inflammatory.
Yogi’s will do something impressively bendy and help you detox with a chaturanga or two. Sleep coaches will tell you to be in a (dark) bedroom by 8pm because circadian rhythm health rocks.
The pouting, selfies and showboating will gather momentum as January kicks into action. What’s crazy is this has become LIFE.

So I have a tattoo. I wish I could tell you that I spent hours contemplating this permanent print on my body but the truth is I googled some tattoo designs and just got it done. Why? Because I was unhappy and I desperately needed change in so many aspects of my life.
Weight gain, hot flushes, water retention, bloating, mood crashes, poor memory, brain fog, breast pain, acne… the list goes on and it’s a familiar list to most women. Have you ever suffered with any of these symptoms?
We’re over half way through January and I've definitely seen loads of people emerging from their caffeine, sugar and alcohol withdrawals and starting to experience a new sense of awesomeness. However, it might be the case that you're still treading water with this healthy malarkey and just counting down the days until you can resume business as usual. Every single day can feel like a struggle as you battle cravings, wade through daily dullness and feel constantly distracted by the lack of reward in your life.
