To Detox or Not to Detox - That is the Question!

Are you trying to stop/start, give up/do more or less of something in 2016?

Like most of us, after the indulgences of Christmas, we start with the best intentions to have a healthier year.  This is good but many of us set goals with high expectations which unfortunately many will struggle to keep as they are unrealistic and unattainable.  The best way and only way to maintain health is to make lifestyle changes that can be incorporated and become part of your daily routine.

Here are my tips:

Cook everything from scratch, if its not homemade it has no place in your home!  Pack in as many vegetables as you dare, 'Ban the Beige' and enjoy a slice of homemade cake every now and again.

Eat 3 regular meals a day and NO Snacking! Generally think warm and cooked, especially at this time of year, and eat foods that are in season.

Cut our refined sugar.  All sugar does is create an inflammatory response in the body.  There are plenty of alternatives to use in cooking and baking.

Cut back on dairy products.  Keep them as a treat rather than a daily essential.  Dairy products are highly nutritious and as adults they are unnecessary and just creates accumulations in the body.

These are simple, achievable guidelines that will enable weight loss and a healthier life not just in 2016 but beyond!

Period Problems and Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture

With all this talk of tampon tax and the 'period' word being thrown about The House of Commons, I thought i would write a blog about them!

Gone are the days of 'The Red Tent' where women went to sit for a week every month and nothing was expected of them.  These days women have to get on with life and hope their periods don't interfere.

So what is a 'normal' period.  The vast majority of people think that pain is a normal part of a period, that heavy bleeding is something that everybody gets and an irregular cycle is to be taken in their stride.  Not so.  Whether you have a diagnosis or just a variety of symptoms, Chinese Medicine has a long history of treating gynaecological disorders and all issues surrounding menstruation.  PMT, periods that are painful, short, long, heavy, light, clotted, irregular or have spotting.  Whatever the issue, Chinese medicine seeks to bring the period to a 28 day cycle, 5 day bleed, fresh red flow and no pain!

Primarily Chinese Medicine helps by regulate the blood and the qi which are prone to getting stuck around period time and this can cause pain.  If the stagnation continues to build then heat is created and this can be a cause of heavy bleeding. Both acupuncture and herbs can help alleviate the symptoms and address the underlying causes. 

                                                            If you are struggling with any aspect of your period and wish to discuss things further, I'm happy to answer your question
