Feeling defeated, overwhelmed and frazzled, not sleeping well, getting sick more often and even when you’re not sick, feel you’re operating at 50 percent of your best? Women are typically having trouble losing weight and can’t stick to a diet or kick their sugar habit. They feel they have no willpower. They feel stuck in overdrive. They’re in survival mode, and life feels out of control! Sadly, this is the common story my patients are telling me in their consultations and it’
For centuries, people have sought medical advice or treatment. Where we now take medicines orally, healing in the past often involved rubbing in of a plant-based medicine or by ‘calming a troubled spirit’ so that the body’s turmoil can also calm. Today, our role as a patient is predominantly a passive one. We hand over the responsibility for our recovery to a ‘greater authority’ mainly because we’ve been conditioned to fear illness and even fear the workings of our own body.
One thing is for sure! Less calories is often not the answer to weight loss. We’ve just got to think about it for ourselves. Many of us are eating less and trying to exercise more, but it’s not equating to weight loss. We’re still struggling to be the weight that we want to be. This is also especially so in maintaining weight loss. Frustratingly, the majority of us gain back the weight that we’ve worked so hard to lose. If monitoring calories isn’t the answer for weight lo
We are all born with intuitive knowledge of our own health, but this intuition tends to shut down in mid life (or before) by our culture. So many of us feel that our bodies are betraying us! “I can’t trust my body, it’s turning on me!” In actual fact – your body is doing everything it can do to get your attention! It’s our soul (or our internal self) that’s running the show. What has been ‘downloaded’ into your mind over the years? When we wake up and say “why do I have so
This week we’ve been talking about Dementia/Alzheimer’s in The Group and if there’s one point I want to make, it’s that Dementia is not just an ‘old persons’ disease. And by the way, what’s the difference between Dementia and Alzheimer’s? “Dementia is a brain disorder that affects communication and performance of daily activities and Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia that specifically affects parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language.” The fully fle
We all know what we should be doing, but we don’t necessarily do it right? We know that we should eat right, exercise more, go to bed earlier, or get more ‘me’ time, but even though these are just little things (they’re not mammoth tasks) we often lack the motivation to do the little things! And that’s why motivation does not work! Instead, we need a little tool to press ‘go’ on, when we have to get our backsides into action. They use this tool in the special armed forces,
Thyroid imbalances are so common for women, but often results show that you’re thyroid is normal, when in reality, it’s far from it! In my private practice, I don’t know how many times a patient tells me that their blood results have gone back to their GP as ‘normal’ for their thyroid, however when we do a more complete test, it shows that their thyroid is very imbalanced and is the cause of other health issues such as weight gain, no energy, depression/anxiety, hormonal imba
We’re frequently served up the ‘standard answer’ as to whether we’re gluten intolerant or not. Mainstream medicine claims there’s no such thing as gluten intolerance and to that, we breathe a sigh of relief! Thank goodness we don’t have to give up bread! (I’m hearing you.) The current advice is that we either have celiac disease (an autoimmune condition which requires removal of all traces of gluten) or we don’t! If we don’t… go right ahead and eat as you normally would. Sadl
