Do You Know The Main Factors Affecting Brain Health?   When our brain health is in tip top shape we feel like we can conquer the world – we can think clearly, are able to make decisions, have great recall of the information we need to, and we generally feel like we can cope better with what life throws our way.   When brain health suffers we’re usually talking about the broad subjects of mood, concentration and memory being negatively affected. In more extreme circumstances we can be talking about depression, anxiety, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease. All the things that are […]

Hello there! I can’t quite believe that it’s 18 months since I last wrote a blog. I know I’ve been active on social media here and there, but really sitting down and writing – well, it’s been a while.   Sometimes things happen in life that takes us down a different path.

In this short video clip Dr Chatterjee talks passionately about the need to incorporate nutrition and lifestyle knowledge and interventions into the NHS. I’m really interested to hear what you think. I have no reservations in setting my stall out on this one. As you would expect I wholeheartedly agree with the proposal, truly believing in the power of both nutrition and lifestyle for our health and wellbeing. Of course it’s not necessarily an easy change to make in such a massive and already strained NHS. However I believe that supporting our dedicated teams in the NHS with further knowledge and tools […]

Seems obvious, but we often forget that the food we eat can influence our mood and happiness. How we think and feel on a day-to-day basis is very closely linked to our brain chemistry and how optimally our neurotransmitters are working. You’ve probably heard of serotonin – well that’s the neurotransmitter closely linked with happiness and sleep. Ways to boost your serotonin through food and lifestyle Eating foods rich in tryptophan which converts to serotonin – poultry, fish, eggs, red meats (in moderation) and dairy Eating foods rich in the key nutrients needed to convert the tryptophan to serotonin – B vitamins, zinc, magnesium, iron and […]

Detoxification is such a big topic and over the last few weeks I’ve shared what toxins are, how the body is equipped to deal with them and how our diet and lifestyle choices can have an impact. I hope you’ve found it useful. “Do I need to detox?” Many people ask me whether I think they need to have a “detox” and whether there really are any real benefits to it. I believe the key to success with detoxification is not to focus on having a “detox” just for a couple of weeks a year, but adopting the principles for […]

Sleep is essential to our overall health and wellbeing – it has so many benefits for us, it’s easy to understand why our health can deteriorate so quickly with sleep deprivation. How sleep supports our health Whilst the process of sleep doesn’t appear to be clearly understood we do know that good quality sleep supports a whole host of physiological functions – for example: Supporting cognitive function and brain health, preventing the acceleration of ageing of the brain Repairing and regenerating muscles and tissues Keeping your blood sugar levels balanced Helping the breakdown of fat stores (yes people, fat breakdown!) Supporting sports performance Completing many digestive and detoxification processes whilst […]

Did you know that 50-70% of your body is water? It’s in every cell, the fluid between cells, blood, lymph, sweat, urine and more. Maintaining a healthy fluid balance in our body is critical to our health and wellbeing. Water has many functions including: Digesting your food and helping the absorption of nutrients from food Preventing constipation Carrying and excreting waste products and toxins out of your body Regulating your body temperature Keeping all your moving parts lubricated Sending messages between your cells so that you can do things like move your muscles or allow your eyes to see Every […]
