How Can I Raise Low Blood Pressure?

How Can I Raise Low Blood Pressure?   So many doctors, journalists and writers talk about how to lower high blood pressure, but few address the challenges of low blood pressure. My blood pressure is often low, not dangerously low, but I do feel low blood pressure symptoms such as: Dizzy upon standing – after sitting. Headache/ head-rush (where you feel spacey upon standing). Cardio exercise can wipe me out. Not…

This photograph is not Michael This is a guest post by Michael Doherty from The Michael Files Kelly has asked me to write a post about ageing.

Is The Deadly Nightshade Family Good For You? Tomatoes, Potatoes, Eggplant, Pepper

  Shared via Google labeled for reuse by Soil-Net I like tomatoes, especially cherry tomatoes. The only thing is, if I have tomatoes for a few days in a row, I come out in an itchy painful whitehead rash on my cheeks and chin. So maybe tomatoes don’t like me. Well, I recently discovered tomatoes are part of the deadly nightshade family which also includes: potatoes, eggplant (aubergine), peppers, goji berries,…

My Sugar-Free Journey : 3 MONTHS and Counting – From Addiction To Change

Image created by Deviant Duality Shared via Google ‘labeled for reuse’ If somebody had told me last year that I would not be eating anything with refined sugar in it, I would have said they were crazy. I wasn’t able to go 2 days without my bar of chocolate, my sugar in coffee, or my slice of cake. My meals consisted of shop-bought sauces full of sugar, my sandwich spreads…

The Myth Of The Low-Fat Diet

Many many years ago I bought into the whole diet industries message of: “You must eat low-fat to lose weight.” I get why many people still buy into this message as it is still so big globally. Yet around 10 years ago, I started to ask the question: “Why, if low-fat is the way to lose weight, are there so many low-fat diets still on the market?” And then it…

You Only Live Once – Healthy & Whole

While away up north with family 2 weeks ago, we tended to eat out most days. I was able to go sugar-free with the exception of a few glasses of wine and cider. I ate some deliciously stodgy foods, but realised that I could not live like that all the time. From beef-burgers in white flour buns, to roast dinner, potatoes, fish in batter and chips, it was nice, but…

Early Menopause or Hormonal Imbalance – Take Charge Of Your Womanly Health

Modern day society has a rather dismissive way of handling women’s issues. It either numbs them out with drugs or provides women with little knowledge on the subject. Luckily, we have the internet & excellent female (and male) authors out there taking the lead on finding balance for womankind. Something that both horrifies me, and astonishes me, is how little the younger (and older) generations of women know about their…

Goofy, Buck Teeth & Crooked Smiles

Accepting our humanity, including those parts of us we may consider are flaws is so important for our wellbeing and personal balance. When something in us seems wrong, imperfect or even viewed as ugly it can really place a deep dent on our self-esteem. I used to be called goofy at school, my protruding front teeth was the talking point of the school bullies and the boys in my class.…
