    Comment
    Article by Fab after Fifty   We should all take care of ourselves. That’s a given. Especially in these trying times. But so many of us have really failed to do this in the past. We have overworked ourselves. We have taken on too many responsibilities. We fall behind on our basic care and maintenance. In our normal world we eat badly. We forget to exercise.

But now with most of us forced to put our normal lives on hold, with all the uncertainty we face on a daily basis, it’s important that we start looking after ourselves. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you along the way. We need to...

  4. How tuning in to your ‘gut-brain’ connection can help to manage mental health issues

    Comment
    By health expert and author Sara Davenport Brain health has never seemed such a priority.  We are facing a tsunami of metal health problems – statistics show that one in four people (in the UK) will suffer from anxiety and depression in any given year. On top of that, the dementia epidemic facing our increasingly ageing population has become as frightening as the threat of cancer. Only recently (18th February 2020), a report by Alzheimer Europe has revealed that “the number of people with dementia is set to double by 2050”. I frequently get asked about the connection between the brain and the gut on my blog (www.reboothealth.co.uk), and it’s a subject that I’ve written extensively about in my latest book...
  5. Looking for a Boost? Could CBD be the Answer?

    Comment
    You might have heard of CBD. You might have seen it being advertised in health food shop windows or talked about on TV, for example. CBD – or cannabidiol has been growing in popularity over the last few years, with the discovery of more and more health benefits that it can offer to you. CBD is a natural compound that is found in the cannabis plant. Researchers have found, over the past few years, such an increase in the potential positives to taking CBD that it’s now impossible to ignore and which has none of the negatives that have traditionally been associated with the plant. What is CBD? Cannabidiol is one of over 100 compounds that can be extracted from the cannabis plant. It was only discovered recently when...
  6. How to combat Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) in winter

    Comment
    Seasonal Affective Disorder, also known as SAD is a type of depression that is brought on by the changing seasons. SAD can strike at any point in the year, however it is much more common in the winter months when the temperatures drop and the days get darker.   Online retailers AO.com recently commissioned a survey to find out how people in the UK felt about winter. The survey looked into how many people have suffered with SAD, but also focussed on how people in the UK make their homes feel cosier in the winter and make this often dreaded time of year much more pleasant.   The survey revealed that 30% of over 55s have suffered from SAD and almost half of over 55s (48%) have experienced at least one symptom....
  7. The Ultimate Menopause Q&A: Your Menopause Questions answered

    Comment
    Expert Answers on the Menopause from Dr Elaine McQuade To coincide with World Menopause Day, Dr Elaine McQuade of the Marion Gluck Clinic answers your most frequently asked questions about the Menopause. 1. How long should the menopause last? Symptoms of the menopause last on average up to four years after the last period. This differs for each individual and for some the symptoms can last up to 10 years and I’ve seen patients still having hot flushes 20 years down the line. Each woman is different and the amount and severity of symptoms are different case to case and are also dependant on genetics, lifestyle, diet, exercise, stress etc. The perimenopause can start a few years before the periods when the hormones start to change. ...
  8. How to Get A More Positive Start To Your Day with a Yoga-in-Bed Breathing Exercise

    Comment
    Article by Ntathu Allen   Most people dream of waking up feeling refreshed, vibrant, calm and ready to seize the day!  We grow up with the message “the early bird catches the worm”, and our inboxes are bombarded with blogs about the value of morning routines and starting your day at 5.00am is the best way to live a “happy, productive and fulfilling life.” Benjamin Franklin may have passed away in 1790, yet his famous quote “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” is imprinted on our hearts. However, the rise of the digital, 24/7 “always-plugged-in society” affects our ability to switch -off, get a good night’s sleep and wake up rested, refreshed and raring -to go. If you are...

  10. 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.
