Exercise, Endorphins & Wellbeing

If you do not have one already, the end of summer is a good time to start an exercise routine before the start of the “darker” months when it is often more difficult to do so. It is a wonderful way to prepare ourselves and ensure that we will exercise regularly during a period when we often eat heavier food and when our mood can be up and down. Exercise is important all through the year but even more so during the winter months. It helps keep our brain and body going. Why exercise? As well as boosting physical and ...

How to feed our friendly gut microbes & improve our mental health

Today is Mental Health Awareness Day. In my previous blog, I spoke about the microbiome and its importance to our health: our gut impacts all bodily systems, and particularly our mental health. Mental health problems have risen dramatically in the last few years and are affecting both individuals and healthcare providers. Allopathic medicine offers a range of solutions to support mental health issues through medicinal drugs and therapies. However, many of my clients suffering from these have been struggling for years and are keen to explore other more natural alternatives. And the good news is that there are things that ...

What is the microbiome and why is it important for our health?

What is this microbiome we hear about everywhere these days? It is a huge area of research and as a gut health nutritionist, it is right up my street. I am especially interested into its link with mental health through the gut-brain axis (another blog needed on that subject!), which can assist with all sorts of issues such as headaches, migraines, poor mood, focus and memory, anxiety and even depression. I recently supported a client with migraines and we managed to substantially reduce the severity & frequency of her migraines by, among other things, supporting her gut microbiome. We have ...

Are you confused with all the different grains available and don’t know what is what?

Don’t worry, you can start now and be sure to get your energy back in time for the coming spring and summer! If the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted something to all of us, it is the importance of our health. Without it, pretty much nothing matters in life.

I recently participated in this interview with Jerms. Find out how you can support your gut, improve your mood & feel better! Can you tell us a bit about the personal journey which led you to qualify as a Nutritional Therapist?  It has been a long journey and so well worth it!

Feel sexy and fabulous for Valentine’s,
and 6 foods to get you in the mood

Have you lost your mojo? If it’s not just Valentine’s Day turning you off, you could be suffering from a low libido. Here’s how to boost your sex drive and feel great in bed again. We all have days when we’re not in the mood for sex. But for some it’s not just the pressure of Valentine’s Day – it’s all year round. It’s something I see a lot in clinic.

How to beat the winter blues

Why everything seems worse in the winter Even though winter has a lot going for it – woolly hats, hot chocolate, curling up with a book, thick socks, a log fire and other things ‘hygge’ coming to mind – something important is missing: light. At this time of year, you go to work before sunrise and come home after sunset, with very little exposure to natural light in between. This lack of light over months on end causes serious problems for many people. According to BUPA, the ‘winter blues’, or seasonal affective disorder (SAD), affects about 3% of the population ...
