Do New Year’s Resolutions Work?

January 15, 2019

I see a lot of New Year’s resolutions, goal setting and aspirations for the New Year. And like you, at the start of each year, I also think about how I’m going to be a better, healthier version of myself. I think about how I can achieve a little more balance with my life, not stress the small stuff so much, and try to live my daily life aligned to those things that are important to me. I also see a lot of “gurus” undermine New Years resolutions… tell people that you don’t have to ....

Diets Don’t Work! So What Does?

January 8, 2019

If you have followed me long enough you will know I’m not a big believer of diets (unless of course you have a diagnosed condition such as coeliac disease or fructose malabsorption etc). Diets set us up to fail because they are not sustainable over a life time. Removing foods forever is a big ask and very difficult for the mindset. I can’t imagine to be told to never again indulge in chocolate or freshly baked sourdough bread or a magnificent pasta dish. Whilst our intentions, motivation, ....

Stay Energised this Festive Season

Are You In Energy Crisis?

July 9, 2018

The organs with the most ‘energy-hungry’ cells will be the first to feel the brunt of an energy crisis. Thus our brain is the first to feel the effects of low energy.  Our brain only makes up 2% of our body weight but uses 20% of our energy. No wonder when we are fatigued the things we notice are brain fog, poor memory, impaired word recall and decreased executive function. We know that stress is a leading ‘energy-zapper’ and it leads to systemic inflammation throughout the body. Ch....

Are you Getting enough Iron?

July 12, 2017

Iron is involved in numerous physiological processes. The primary function of iron in the body is to support the formation of healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen around the body so it can be used to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate) or cellular energy. This is why, if we are low in iron, we often feel tired. However, many people do not consume adequate amounts of iron in their diets or their digestive system is compromised so iron is not readily absorbed by the body. The most vulner....

Coenyme Q10 – A Must Have

June 14, 2017

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) must be one of my favourite nutrient supplements because it is essential for so many mechanisms of action in the body. It is mostly known for its role in energy production and I believe good energy levels are the foundation of good physical health and good mental health. It is generally referred to as ‘ubiquinone’ due to its ubiquitous nature throughout the body, and has been used as a therapeutic supplement for more than 30 years. Whilst small amounts of CoQ10 are avail....

Life is a “Do it Yourself Project!”

January 23, 2017

Life is a… “Do it Yourself Project” I like to share this story about this time every year because, if you are anything like me, I need this gentle story to remind me that it’s time to re-focus on my health… to realise that if I keep indulging in festive habits my health, my mood, my sleep, my work and my waistline will suffer. It’s time to take back control of my health and enjoy the benefits that optimum health brings. “An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his emplo....
