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’
Firstly, I want to share a little tip that I hope helps you as much it did for me! This is for when you’re feeling like you have too much to do every day, or perhaps you’re multitasking but at the same time having low productivity. Feeling like you’re not getting what you want to get done? Many of us have issues with productivity, no matter what our jobs. Either we’re overly productive, but we’re feeling burnt out all the time. Or we’re not productive enough, because we si
You know that woman. She may be a good friend, family or just someone you know. She’s smart and insightful and she just seems to get it. Whatever is going on for her, she handles it with a kind of grace. Plus she has high integrity – no greed, puts others first and is totally trustworthy. To top it all off she’s warm and funny!! So here’s the thing. The way you look at that woman? Someone looks at you the same way. Many people do. You are that amazing person who doesn
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.
Anxiety would have to be one of the most common complaints women tell me about within the private space of their health consultation. These anxious feelings can range from low grade and occasional, due to a certain life event such as family trauma or financial stress. And then there’s ‘free floating anxiety’ where we feel it’s not for and particular reason. More like a constant debilitating (pit in stomach type feeling) most of the time. Here, it’s also common to think there
As a women, its very common to be prescribed the pill if there are any period issues. The pill is a medication however, and therefore it can have long term negative effects on a young women’s overall health and well being. So what can you do to reset the imbalance? Plenty and I’ll show you how (and why.) Sadly, women are not warned about this fact. On one side of the coin the pill may reduce the nuisance of problematic periods, but on the other side, it can have long reachi
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
Over 80% of people with lifestyle diseases are choosing to die rather than to change their ways. This sounds terrible doesn’t it? There’s been a couple of different studies asking people this question who have e.g. Diabetes and other lifestyle diseases, and they choose not to change (diet and lifestyle.) People find it so difficult to change, that they’d rather coast into an early death, rather than shake things up and make the change. But why can't we change? There are very
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
