Did you know you are only about 10% human. That’s right. If you add up all the cells that are part of what makes “you”, around 90% are cells that are not actually human. The rest are bacteria and other single-cell organisms that reside on our skin, in our our mouths, in our lungs, but mostly in our digestive system.
Might sound a bit gruesome but it’s actually good news. These bacteria are here to keep us healthy and happy with glowing skin and heaps of energy. But only if we treat them right. Continue reading “Why is Fibre so important?”
The world today is a dangerous place. Not because of what we see on the news every night, No. It’s what’s happening inside us we should be worried about. That’s much more likely to do us in!
The “toxic load” on our bodies is greater today than ever before. And our poor digestive system is overloaded and often unable to deal with everything we throw at it.
We now know that many of the conditions which are so prevalent today – IBS, eczema, constipation, chronic fatigue, and much worse – are caused by the body acting against itself and there is lots of evidence that our diet and lifestyle is a major contributory factor.
Most of us want to live healthy lives. We want to be well, free of disease, full of energy, free from pain and looking forward to a long, happy life.
But the reality is that most of us actually don’t. Where does it all go wrong?
My colleague Dr Tanda Cook explains all here, and shows how the Arbonne 30 day plan can help you achieve a healthy, happy life.
We are learning so much about how our diet and lifestyle affects every part of our well-being. Many of the most common killers are avoidable, and we all know the impact obesity is having on our society and health system.
I talk to lots of people who want to be more healthy but just don’t know where to start.
We’re all looking for ways to make our lives cleaner, purer, more natural. Essential Oils have recently become part of my daily routine. Obviously I love to use them to enhance my bathing experience.
But they’re not just to add to bath. Here’s a few suggestions on how you can adopt a more natural approach to housework and hygiene as well as balancing your body and mind. Continue reading “Essential Oils”
Just back from Vegas – and brimming with excitement.
So, so proud to be part of this amazing movement. Thousands of women and men working hard to achieve success on their own terms.
We’ve all made the choice to strike out on our own. Nobody is going to tell us how to live our lives. No schedules, no boss, no monday to friday or 9 to 5, no office politics, no being passed over for promotion, no fear of redundancy, no mandatory retirement age.
January can be a difficult month. By “Blue Monday” most of us are beating ourselves up over broken resolutions. The willpower of New Year’s day disappearing along with the last of the Christmas cake washed down with a few glasses of Baileys whilst bingeing on the box set you got from the kids. You too?
Let’s be kind to ourselves. Allow January to pass slowly by as we finish the mountain of nuts and eventually get the glitter out of the carpet. Come February we’ll be raring to go. That’s the time to start thinking ahead. The snowdrops are peeking and daffodils are already in the shops. Spring can’t be far away.
This is the last year I’ll see my fifties (yikes!). I’m a grandmother (hooray!). And the knees can be a bit dodgy in the mornings. But I’m not giving in.
When I get on the dance floor I can still show the youngsters a thing or two.
