Nutritional Support For Immune Health

21st March 2020

We've updated this blog following the rapid spread of Corona Virus to help you prioritise nutrients and lifestyle habits that support your body's own natural defence systems. Your immune system works 24/7 so ideally a nutritious diet, sufficient sleep and exercise are present on a regular basis as these are fundamental in providing the resources and energy your immune system requires to fulfil it's daily task list.

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. The problem today is many people wonder around with a list of increasing ailments or signs of sub optimal health and it simply becomes the norm.

Emotional Lessons From A Health Challenge

21st February 2020

Working as a Nutritional Therapist I’ve supported many clients who've been diagnosed with cancer or other life changing, health conditions. Their strength and positivity never fails to inspire me, they also discuss emotions and observations that change their outlook and priorities going forward. I wanted to share a few of them with you.

Slow Down For Faster Results

17th January 2020

I want to talk a little about me BUT a lot about you. It’s been a whole 3 months since I joined my first ever CrossFit gym and I’m over the moon with my progress so far. There is still a long way to go, but instead of getting frustrated by how impossible some things can feel (muscle ups, barbell snatches and handstand walks to name a few) I feel motivated to practice and make progress.

Guidance For Thyroid Support

3rd January 2020

A common issue I see across my client base, especially for women, is a thyroid complication. Some cases have already been diagnosed and sometimes we identify them through a combination of blood testing and symptom analysis. However, there’s another pattern I’ve observed and that is people looking for a thyroid issue as an explanation for their sluggish metabolism or lack of results when it comes to weight loss.

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. There's ONE resolution in particular which is often overlooked but could make a big difference to your wellbeing.

TWO Questions You Need To Ask Yourself

12th November 2018

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. Now that science has established the links between your nervous, immune and hormone systems it's clear that how you feel changes your biology, relationships significantly alter your dominant emotions and therefore your health.

Quick Immune Interventions

4th September 2018

A couple of two weeks ago I woke up with that razor blade feeling in my throat. Not wishing to be a wimp I powered on with my day but skipped the morning run you’ll be pleased to hear. Over the following few days, I woke up feeling the same but I had some work commitments I had to fulfil so I kept showing up thinking I’d shake off this bug. However, I didn’t so eventually decided to give my immune system the support it required to help it deal with situation and get me back to normal.
