  1. 5 top tips to reduce feelings of stress from Dr Marion Gluck

    Comment
    Article by Dr Marion Gluck Are you feeling more stressed now that lockdown is lifting? Stress can dramatically affect hormones and help create an imbalance. In particular, DHEA, an endogenous steroid hormone which gives energy and focus, can fall to low levels when stressed, which will then help trigger too much cortisol. Cortisol plays havoc with hormone levels and can increase appetite, decreases muscle mass, libido and bone density, along with contributing to depression and memory loss. In a balanced nervous system cortisol is routinely released in the morning, which is good, as it gets us out of bed.

  2. Do you have Dry Eyes? Review of Artelac Eye Drops

    Comment
    I am used to working from home, having based myself from home for over 25 years, both in my headhunting career and in running Fab after Fifty. However, the past 12 months of working from home has been so different. I have never spent so much time looking at a screen! In the past being based from home still involved me going to off site meetings and events.  Telephone calls gave me a break from screen time, but during the pandemic Zoom calls became the norm – so natural breaks from my screen no longer exist. By the end of the day I definitely have eye fatigue and my eyes feel quite dry and itchy – prompting me to rub them...
  3. Your gut and how it feels – Examining gut health

    Comment
    Article by Amber Tsai Our body is home to about 300 to 500 different types of bacteria. They can be found in our gastrointestinal tract or GI tract. While some of these bacteria are good and some bad, all of them are crucial to our gut health. The balance between the good and bad bacteria is the indication of our gut health. Though we want to keep the bad bacteria to a minimum, it does not necessarily mean that we should eradicate and flush out the bad ones from our systems. Why is gut health so crucial, you ask? Your gut is the MVP when it comes to overall health. The responsibility of the gut, which is more than just your intestines, is to breakdown the nutrients from the food we consume...

  5. Ways Sleep Can Aid the Weight Loss Process

    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...

    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.

However, no matter how much you...
