  • Does Your Waist Measure Up?

    As the joys of Christmas fade and we enter the new year, have you noticed an increase around your waist? Are your trousers fitting a little more snugly?

    Typically the weight that is put on at Christmas time becomes the new weight for the coming year. Over the years, our waists expand as year on year our girth increases!

    The objective way to see if your girth is putting you at risk is to check your waist size and your Waist Hip Ratio.

  • New Year New You

    Doesn’t it feel great to be chilling out, enjoying good weather with people who seem to smile more, or is it just me?

    An Ayurvedic saying may provide some direction  ‘the world is as we are.’

  • Digesting The Festive Season

    Where does digestion of food start? Is it when the food enters the stomach, or after it moves from your stomach into the small intestine at the bottom of your stomach?

    You may have heard that effective digestion starts with how many times we chew our food in the mouth before swallowing.

    Being hungry is key to great digestion

    A well-functioning digestive system is essential for good health and nutrition. Appetite, …
