On the 5th Day of Christmas… Stay Alkalised

December 17, 2019

Festive food and drink tends to be very acidic so it pays to stay alkalised this time of year. Alkalising or ‘balancing the pH of your body’ will provide your body with a level of nutrition that it can use to maintain optimum health and lots of energy and vitality. ‘Staying Alkalised’ can also enhance toxin excretion as well as prevent disease. It is impossible to avoid acid production in the body, as acids are produced as part of regular everyday metabolism. However it is possible t....

Strong Body, Strong Mind

February 13, 2018

I’m a huge believer in the mind body connection, that the power of our mind and our mindset has an influence on the physiology of our body. Conversely, I also believe that a strong body influences the state of our mind, our mood, our thinking and our choices. For example over the Christmas and festive season it is wonderful to celebrate with family and friends with festive foods and alcohol; to relax our routines and to rest and rejuvenate. But come the end of January and start of Februa....

Accept That You Are Unique

February 23, 2015

For the past couple of weeks I have been sharing my philosophy on ageing. You and I both know there are no magic pills or quick fixes. If you value your health – how you feel, how you look, living with boundless energy and to your potential - then you must be prepared to take responsibility and change the way you live. Change is hard because it pushes us out of our comfortable state. But if you want a different result, a different way of living then you can’t keep doing the same things y....

How’s Your Body Composition?

August 31, 2014

What Is Body Composition? Your body is made up of fat mass and fat-free mass. Fat-free mass includes lean muscle, bones, organs, tissue and water. When people refer to body composition, they are generally talking about body fat percent, or the percentage of your body mass that is fat. You can’t change the part of your body that is bones, tissues and organs but you can change the ratio of fat to muscle with exercise and a good diet. How Is Body Composition Measured? There are several diff....
