It’s The Menopause – What Are You Going To Do About It?

27 Mar 2017 - I am 47 this year and my friends are all around the same age, some in their early 50’s, and I have become very interested in the menopause, firstly because its going to happen to me obviously and also because I know people going through it. The pattern is said to be hereditary , so I asked my mum about her story and she had not had any symptoms by the time she was 52yrs but at this time she found out she had breast cancer and the drugs that treated that fast tracked her menopause. Fighting cancer made menopause seem like a walk in the park for her.

Spring Is In the Air

16 Mar 2017 - The weather has cheered up considerably, the grass is growing and there might even be a blackbird outside your bedroom window kicking off at 4am these days. Spring has arrived at last. But what does Spring mean for most of us? It can bring a change in mood and increased positivity, stemming from the longer daylight hours. It can also bring a sudden burst of enthusiasm for cleaning and decluttering your home - embrace this enthusiasm and get cracking, not just for the good of your home, but decluttering your environment can even be good for your mental health.

Healthy Snacks To Buy And Make

03 Mar 2017 - A healthy diet does not have to exclude snacking, so long as you think about what you eat and make sure that you always have healthy snacks at home or out and about, so that you don't succumb to an emergency ham and cheese croissant! Whatever your snack, it should be low is salt and sugar, and have some protein to fill you up, or contribute to your five a day. Here are our favourites, including some great startups that you should check out.

Supplements: Which Ones?

08 Mar 2017 - No matter how well you eat, it's always likely that there is something you're not getting from your regular diet that would boost your long term health. Whether it's iron, Omega-3 or manganese, it's likely that there is something you could be adding in to boost your long term bone health (especially after the menopause, when osteoporosis can kick in ), your energy or your immunity. Naturally, the wellness industry has this covered - in abundance - but with so much to choose from, how can you identify what suits you, and what brands are out there that have it nailed?
