All in Health and Nutrition

My favourite protein packed smoothie.

The ingredients for my daily smoothies change as often as the UK weather!  I am constantly adding new ingredients, researching and trialling the latest pro-aging foods and, after years of experimenting, I think this is now The Perfect Smoothie, so far, for delivering optimum nutrition and a protein punch - very important for supporting our adrenals in the morning to give us maximum energy and healthy hormones.

Another season, another 5-day fast!

Have you noticed that when there's a a major change of season, we often feel the urge to de-clutter our wardrobes, offices & homes? A good many of us also like to de-clutter our bodies at the same time. I'm one of them. Every Spring and Autumn Equinox I try and do a longer fast than normal. it's a naturopathic thing I have done since training as a Nutritionist, oh so long ago. 

Sometimes I laugh so much I pee in my pants!

Well, that got your attention, didn't it?!  I in 3 women suffer from the odd leak, especially those who have had children, from spring chickens to silver foxes. Although I haven't had babies, I have always suffered from a weak bladder and occasionally have just peed myself I've been laughing so much.  The first time was when I was 17 years old, in the street!  Thank goodness I was wearing tights.  Nowadays, although the urges are worse, I have followed all of my own advice below and listened to my doctor, so it's only an odd trickle.
