  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. How to Lose Weight Over 50 Without Dieting

    Comment
    Article by Dr Marilyn Glenville   Many of us gain weight in midlife and look to lose those extra pounds in our 50s.  Dr Marilyn Glenville  talks about a more natural approach to weight loss. Get realistic about dieting – “When you diet it’s not always easy to know when to stop.  Dieting can easily become a way of life and it’s possible to feel ‘naked’ or ‘unprotected’ when you aren’t actively on a diet. Unfortunately, this mind-set can make you set unrealistic goals. Aiming to shed every last pound of what you consider excess fat makes the hurdle simply too high to jump, not just in terms of will power but in health terms, too. Remember those  ‘perfect’ models? Don’t even think about trying to emulate them. Very few...
  5. Just A Few Reasons Why Good Health May Depend on Your Gut

    Comment
    We all care a lot about our health, especially when we reach our fifties. With the rise of an almost-infinite number of different fitness programs, diet regimens, and services dedicated to providing medical screening tests, it certainly seems like the majority of us are willing to go to some pretty great lengths in order to ensure that we are performing and feeling our best, and are also spared the tragedy of serious illness. But, until recently, whenever people spoke about effective health practices, the gut was never mentioned – or, at least not in any more than a passing manner. Today, however, everything has changed. Research conducted in the last few years has increasingly revealed the incredible complexity and power of our guts – and the...
  6. How to improve your Posture: Interview with Posture Queen Maria de Sousa

    Comment
    Interview by Ceri Wheeldon So much of our health is within our own control. I interviewed Posture Queen, Maria de Sousa, about the benefits of good posture, and how we can improve it. It’s never too late! What is good posture? Good posture is when we organise the body in a way that allows us to move freely and without strain from one position to the other. In other words is to be ready for life. Why is good posture important ?  The most important thing about caring for how you hold yourself and move is to prevent misalignments and imbalances in the body. These in the long run will turn into discomfort and pain. Remember that inside your chest are all your vital organs and if they...

    Comment
