  1. Menopause: Natural Alternatives to HRT

    Comment
    Article by Dr Marilyn Glenville Women going through the menopause are now facing a national shortage of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) as was recently reported. The Department for Health and Social Care said it was aware of on-going supply issues due to manufacturing delays. In pressing times, it is reassuring to know that alternative treatments for menopausal symptoms are available. The UK’s Leading Nutritionist Dr Marilyn Glenville offers her advice for alternative natural treatments to HRT… Shortage of HRT Marilyn discusses, “You may have heard that there is a shortage of HRT drugs and that this shortage could last until 2020. Half of all HRT drugs brands are out of stock at the moment and this is affecting all High Street pharmacies so they can’t fulfil the...
  2. A Review of Future You FocusZen supplements to help with Brain Fog

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon One of the many symptoms that women in their 50s say they suffer from is ‘Brain Fog’. The ability to concentrate for extended periods of time is affected in part due to hormonal changes which affect cognition, and in part due to fatigue through lack of sleep – a common symptom of the menopause for those suffering hot flushes at night. We are possibly the first generation of women to continue working through to retirement age, and so brain fog is perhaps more talked about now than previously.  Brain fog may not be overwhelming – but there is that feeling that you just aren’t running on all cylinders. If you are used to being constantly on the go,...

  4. Top To Toe: TLC For Your Feet

    Comment
    Our feet are important parts of our body, and ones which we all too often take for granted. We spend a large chunk of our lives working on our feet and this is something which can, after time, cause our feet to suffer and need some TLC. This is why today we want to take a look at some of the different ways that you can look after your feet and give them the care they need this summer.  Wash and dry your feet properly Luckily for most of us, we don’t ever face a situation where you suffer with a fungal disease, but it is always something to be aware of.

  5. Dr Marilyn Glenville’s essential shopping list for foods that will help you keep your weight under control

    Comment
    Shop & Cook Wisely with The UK’s Leading Nutritionist – Dr Marilyn Glenville 5 Ingredients To Always Have On Your Shopping List… Dr Marilyn Glenville believes shopping and cooking wisely to be an integral part of living well and converting from diet culture to a healthy way of life. Variety is key to enjoying your food and eating for health and weight control. In an ideal world, we would all shop at small retailers offering local, organic produce but that isn’t always practical. Marilyn believes the key to shopping is simple: buy your food in its most natural state. Ask yourself what had happened to the food and drink before it reached the shops – try to buy organic to...
  6. Easy Ways To Mind Your Mental And Physical Health over 50

    Comment
    It’s something that we’d all like, right? A perfectly sound mind and the perfect body at all times. We see amazing people on the covers of magazines, and we hear about people with a strong mindset that takes them to the levels of success we could only dream of. There’s some good news, and there’s some bad news here. The bad news is that you won’t ever have the perfect body and the perfect mindset. The good news is that there’s no such thing as perfection regarding these two points, so you don’t have to worry about it! As much as some people like to act like they are, nobody will ever...
  7. Getting glaucoma – protect yourself against the silent thief of sight

    Comment
    What do Bono, Whoopi Goldberg and Hairy Biker chef Dave Myers all have in common? They all have glaucoma. Often symptomless in its early stages, glaucoma is one of the leading causes of irreversible sight loss. An estimated 700,000 people in the UK are living with the condition dubbed “the silent thief of sight” – yet as many as 50% of cases remain undiagnosed. If detected early, glaucoma is generally treatable with simple medication. That is why this Glaucoma Awareness Week (June 17-23), Specsavers is highlighting the importance of looking after our eyes, beginning with routine eye tests. Usually glaucoma occurs when naturally-occurring fluid inside the eye do not drain properly, leading to a build-up of pressure. This can then cause damage to the optic...
  8. You Can’t Stop Ageing But You Can Control How You Age

    Comment
    Science is increasingly developing new treatments designed to slow the ageing process.  Look into the realms of what we would have considered science fiction and you can see that new experiments are being done using stem cells to literally create brand new cells from our own DNA which can then be reinjected into our bodies to rejuvenate. It may be an amazing way to feel and look younger but this is something that isn’t mainstream….yet! You have some scientists saying that nanobots can be used to repair our ageing organs, blood vessels and muscles from within our bodies. Even the fitness and beauty industry is looking at new ways to defend our youth. Cells deteriorate with age. You can’t stop cell deterioration but you can slow...
  9. 10 Ways To Take Better Care Of Your Health

    Comment
      It used to be that we would typically only think about our health if something went wrong. Our approach to health was to cure rather than prevent illness. It was very much about reacting to negative symptoms and situations.  Taking care of your health became a serious business. If you were actively looking to improve your health, it was typically because there was something wrong with you. These days, we know so much more about health and how to actively improve your health, at any age, and at any time.  There is so much more information available at our fingertips via the internet, and even employers recognise that there are benefits to them in providing wellbeing programmes to create a healthy environment for employees to work...
  10. Can you Kickbox your way through the menopause?

    Comment
    Article by Garth Delikan Not all women want medication to relieve the symptoms of menopause and the when I see the potential consequences of the side effects of some of the medication it doesn’t surprise me. Please note that I am writing this article from a male point of view however it is based on the observations and comments of many of my clients who are going through the menopause, so stick with me as I’ve worked as a personal trainer and kickboxing instructor for 30 years now and my clients have all been and still are, women who are approaching menopause age, or are going through it. HRT is readily available, and for women who may wish to go down that route the benefits of relieving...
