    Comment
    Article by Saheed Rashid, Managing Director, BXTAccelyon  Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK, and arguably the most intimate too, which can cause many men to feel embarrassed when it comes to discussing their symptoms or treatment options with a specialist.

    Comment
    Most people often turn to exercise routines and reduce junks to cut some weight. However, experts recommend sufficient sleep for those who want to lose weight. Sleep deprivation is known to affect your weight, metabolism, and hormones, resulting in weight gain. A study by the National Sleep Foundation linked individuals lacking sufficient sleep with a tendency to eat large food portions, experience bouts of heightened food impulsivity, experience more fatigue, and need more calories. Weight loss or gain is dependent on how the body balances ghrelin and leptin hormones. As such, sleep is an essential ingredient to your weight loss journey. Below are some ways sleep promotes weight loss. Sufficient Sleep Decreases Food Cravings Lack of sufficient sleep impairs the brain’s activation of the...

  6. 15 Tips to Lose Weight Post Lockdown

    Comment
      Lockdown has presented a huge adjustment for all of us. Many have found that this adjustment is reflected in our waistlines! As we emerge into our new normality, with restaurants, hotels and hairdressers (thank goodness!!) , how can we motivate ourselves to have our weight return to normal as well?   If you’re like many women, you begin your diet with great enthusiasm. You drink protein smoothies and turn down desserts. However, as the weeks go by, you find yourself making more excuses and shedding fewer pounds.   Jumping from one popular diet plan to another is likely to yield the same results until you build sustainable motivation.   It’s important to change your thinking to prevent old habits from creeping back.

  7. How the Menopause Affects the Skin’s Ageing Process

    Comment
    Article by Dr Barnish   What is the menopause? The menopause is defined as a cessation of menstruation for a period of 12 months, and the several years leading up to the menopause are known as the perimenopause. The age women experience the menopause is variable, with the average usually falling between 50 and 53 years. This age group often makes up a large proportion of patients for medical aesthetic practitioners.

Although it’s different for everyone, the symptoms of the perimenopause average around four years. There are four main hormones that are involved in the menstrual cycle. Oestrogen, progesterone, luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). The skin changes...

So when you consider the best things you can do to prolong your health,  wellbeing and peace of mind  for yourself and your family, including regular health check ups, purchasing over 50’s life insurance, staying active, and managing stress levels. Metabolism rates tend to slow with age , and even the fittest...
  9. Resetting our health after lockdown by Dr Michael Mosley

    Comment
    Article by Dr Michael Mosley It has felt like life has been on pause during lockdown – including our motivation to eat healthily and keep our bodies moving. However, as restrictions slowly lift, so does our desire to get our health back on track. But it can be hard to know where to start. Dr Michael Mosley shares his expertise: We all know that eating plenty of fruit and veg and exercising is good for us. But at times, it can be really hard to summon up the enthusiasm, especially during this time of enforced lockdown. However, experts have been very conclusive that for people with pre-existing health conditions, Covid-19 seems to be more severe. This particularly appears to be the case for obese people. However, no matter how much you...
