  1. HRT and Breast Cancer Risk

    Comment
    Article by Dr Marion Gluck In the UK, approximately 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year which equates to a woman in the UK being told every 10 minutes she has breast cancer. There are many risk factors associated with breast cancer, from genetics to the contraceptive pill, being overweight/obese and alcohol consumption. Another risk associated with breast cancer is HRT. Dr Marion Gluck, founder of The Marion Gluck Clinic, explores the myths around HRT causing breast cancer So why is HRT associated with breast cancer? Women are often concerned that hormone replacement therapy itself is the cause of breast cancer but this is not the case. It’s how the estrogen is metabolised in the body, and an accumulation of estrogen that increases one’s risk. To put it simply, every individual...

    Comment
    Nose jobs, or rhinoplasties, are one of the most common plastic procedures performed in this country. However, very few people truly understand how they work. There are some important precautions you’ll need to take before and after the treatment.

  3. Top 5 Habits for Successful Weight Loss

    Comment
    Weight loss is a challenge we all face, especially in midlife and beyond.  In an ever-evolving modern world, it can be very difficult to find fresh food at a good price. Fast food outlets on every corner are selling a burger for almost nothing, but a head of broccoli can be two or three times the price. It’s an issue with our supply and demand, but it’s a challenge that many people face when they try to eat healthy. With varying opinions and decades of conflicting science showing that some diets work better than others, finding what’s right for you can be a challenge. With that in mind, hands down the best method you can use to achieve greater weight loss is to influence balance whenever possible. Using a...
  4. Don’t fear the menopause

    Comment
    Article By Dr Marion Gluck, Founder and specialist in women’s health at The Marion Gluck Clinic The recent news coverage around the menopause has been celebrated for raising awareness and giving women a voice about this sensitive and often divisive subject. Whilst the coverage has been brilliant, we must be mindful that the menopause isn’t something to be feared and for many women, symptoms can be minimal or are manageable. Yes, some women may find that symptoms are affecting their lifestyle, but for these women there is effective treatment available. The menopause is a medical condition, and as such medication should be used to alleviate symptoms. The difficulty comes in choosing a treatment option, with HRT receiving negative press and many GPS sadly lacking...
  5. The Importance of Core Strength

    Comment
    Many of us are well accustomed to the development of the glory muscles. Muscles like the chest, shoulders, quads and glutes will always get special attention in the gym – but how many people train their core correctly? Yes, you see others doing simple exercises like leg raises and crunches to work their “abs,” but when we say core, we mean something different. What is your core system? Think of the core as an entire muscular system that spans the entire surface of the stomach and back. The core is a system of muscles that starts at the hips and runs all the way up to the ribcage – supporting the body the entire way without fault.   With that said, many people have a very weak core which...
  6. A Simple Guide to Starting a Vegan Diet

    Comment
      One of the newest and most popular diets in the past few years has stirred up quite the discussion amongst health professionals.   A vegan diet is one that requires you to strip all and any animal products from your diet. This means no meat, dairy, eggs, or animal flavors of any kind.   Starting a vegan diet for many people can be a challenge,  not because there are no food choices, but because it is unknown and new territory that many people have never been taught about.   If you’ve been wondering how you could get started with a vegan diet, here is an easy guide to help you.   Step 1: Load Up on Fruits and Veggies   Most people start a vegan diet by looking at the “meat alternatives”...
  7. Why we find it harder to sleep as we get older?

    Comment
    By Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, neurophysiologist and sleep expert  Achieving deep, restorative sleep is an excellent way to bolster resilience as we age. During this sensitive life stage where many women may also be perimenopausal or menopausal, sleep enables the hormonal shifts to occur more smoothly and emotions to be more balanced and even. When sleep is deep and optimal, the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) – associated with rest, repair, recovery – gets a reboot and the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) – activated by stress – is calmed. An overly active SNS can lead to trouble sleeping with temperature fluctuations and anxiety during the night, while boosting the PNS will help to minimise these issues. This can be done by making good lifestyle choices and adopting some...
  8. Phonak: A Simple Guide to Understand Hearing Tests

    Comment
    Are you concerned about a persistent hearing problem (whether yours or your child’s) and don’t know what to do about it? If so, then you need a hearing test or audiogram to determine the extent of your problem. Statistics indicate that about 11 million individuals in the UK have hearing loss, making it the second most prevalent disability in the country. Nonetheless, as an ‘undetectable/invisible’ disability, hearing loss often goes unnoticed hence the need to enroll for a hearing test constantly, or in case you notice any issue. So, how and where do you get a hearing test? To help you grasp what it is all about, here is everything you need to know about a hearing test. What is a...
