Did you know there are believed to be over 200 medical conditions that gluten can either cause, contribute to, or make worse?That is quite a statement and whether you think you have a problem with gluten or not, I wholeheartedly believe we could all benefit hugely from eating a lot less of it.In brief, gluten is like glue to our digestive system and is found in so many of our foods, not just the ones we would expect like bread, pasta and cake, how about stock cubes, crisps,...

Did you know that over 90% of New Year's Resolutions have gone by the wayside by mid January? I know New Year seems like an age ago now but I bet you still really want those resolutions to transpire as much as you did when you set them?Now Spring is here, maybe it's time to try again?

Last week was National ‘Wear Red Day,’ which specifically raises awareness of, heart disease amongst women. And on Saturday it was World Cancer Day.So just as everyone’s healthy resolutions are flailing, and lets face it most of our resolutions are healthy ones, we are bombarded with national health awareness days, On top of that it’s February, the most depressing month of the year apparently.So why are we still seeing increases...

This week marked the 97th anniversary of the start of prohibition* in the USA. It didn’t quite work out for them as they had hoped and ended up creating a crime wave so great that it rocked the nation, but 13 years is a long time for anyone to give up alcohol completely, even I would struggle with that! Dry January We now of course have the increasingly popular Dry January which is a much more manageable time frame and also is personal choice rather than a total ban, which...
