“Health is important to everyone. It decides how we feel, act and look, but improving and maintaining your health is not easy and requires the right type and amount of exercise, nutrition and lifestyle habits.
This month we’re focusing on men’s health! In the shop we have some great products to support men’s overall health and wellbeing and this article will take a closer look at Male multi-vitamins and prostate health.
We also have our Registered Nutritional Therapists who are available to offer you advice instore, or in a consultation, about any of your health concerns, including:
Sleep! It’s so important for our health yet so many of us fail to get enough or at least enough quality sleep, which is what matters. Lack of sleep can have a huge impact on many areas of our health, and in particular stress! Talking about stress, this month sees the beginning of the exam period for many students. Feeling nervous before an exam is completely normal but for some it’s a time of severe stress and anxiety. Thankfully there is plenty we can do to support both sleep and stress levels.
The hay fever season is upon us again and for some it can be a miserable time but thankfully there are plenty of natural options to choose from.
Apart from the current flurry of snow, we have at last had some blue skies and snow drops, and now the daffodils are on their way! Spring is in the air! We have turned a corner from our wintry hibernation! This is the perfect time of year to think about weight loss, doing a cleanse, or just cleaning up your diet.
Here are some handy tips and tricks on how to get a restful sleep!
Vegans must ensure that they have a well balanced diet to ensure they do not become deficient in any essential nutrients, and in some cases supplementation may be necessary.
After the indulgences of Christmas, many people think that January is a time when they should be plunging into a full detox, but in fact (for most people) this is not the best time. Use the earlier part of the new year to take a more gentle approach to cleansing and start cleaning up the diet first. Wait until the Spring, for a deeper cleanse or detox. When that time comes we will have all the information you need to help you!
The festive season brings a wonderful array of food and drink to enjoy but it’s a time of year when it’s easy to overindulge! All the overeating, especially of rich food, and drinking more alcohol puts a strain on the digestive system and people commonly suffer heartburn, indigestion (including bloating, gas or nausea), constipation or diarrhoea, as a result.
This year be prepared and find out how to support your digestion, so you can enjoy the season’s fayre in a little more comfort!
Looking after our joints is not just something for the elderly. Those who do a lot of sport may find their joints hurt with intense or repetitive exercise. For some people it’s the repetitive work related activities which can cause joint pain. There are also specific joint conditions that people suffer with, of which Osteoarthritis is the most common. It is estimated that at least 8 million people in the UK suffer with this form of arthritis, which occurs from wear and tear of the cartilage. The second most common form of arthritis is Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the joint. Another common joint condition is Gout, caused by urate crystals in the joints. So what can we do to support our joints?
