7 Natural Remedies for Dry and Cracked Skin

Dry, cracked skin is far more than a beauty problem. Whether it’s caused by an allergy, eczema, or simply the stresses of daily life, it can turn into a real health problem if it’s not dealt with.

The skin can become permanently rougher and thicker, and quickly start flaking and peeling. In extreme cases, it can even become infected and require medical attention.

So what can you do if you’re suffering from dry skin? If your usual skin creams, lotions, and potions aren’t having any effect, it’s time to look beyond the beauty salon shelves and try one of these proven natural solutions.  Read More

Tips to help treat your tailbone (coccyx) pain

Tailbone pain, also known as coccyx pain or coccydynia, is defined by a painful sensation right at the bottom of the spine and above the buttock, where the bony structure of the coccyx is. The causes can be various: whether it is because of an overuse injury during a sports activity (cycling, rowing) or after a fall.

But it is also one of the most common pains in pregnant women. During the last trimester of pregnancy and because of the baby growing, ligaments surrounding the coccyx get loose to make more room, moving the coccyx. This is why more women are victims of tailbone pain than men. Plus, it can also happen during and after vaginal childbirth.

So what are the symptoms and how is it possible to manage tailbone pain?  Read more

THE GUT-BRAIN AXIS AND ITS ROLE IN MENTAL HEALTH

We are firm believers, the health of the gut is absolutely crucial to our overall health. In clinic we specialise in gut health, offering programmes to support digestive conditions as well as mental concerns such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, low mood, low sex drive and mental performance. The evidence base of the crucial link between the health of the gut and the health of the brain is growing and is referred to as the gut-brain axis.

What’s going on in the gut will influence our brain health, cognitive function, mood and behaviour AND what’s going on in the brain will also influence the health of our gut. It is a bi-directional relationship. Certain bacteria living in our gut is responsible for the production of various neurotransmitters such as our happy hormone serotonin and our sleep hormone melatonin, so when we are dealing with poor sleep and poor mood, our place for intervention should start with the gut.  Read more

Happy YOU year

On 1 January across the world, millions of us make lofty promises to ourselves. We’ll get healthy, go to gym, drink less wine and eat more greens. We plan to be perfect.

By February, most resolutions are gathering dust as we shake off the holidays and wrestle with the reality of work, friendship, parenthood and bills. It doesn’t happen to me so much these days because I have the skills to coach myself out of it but is this your reality?  Read more

What healthy habits will you take into 2020?

Have you noticed how easy it is to slip into a bad habit?….Xmas is a prime example, a larger than normal portion, an extra snack, another glass of wine/booze, just finish off the chocolates. Very quickly our bodies become accustomed to the sugar, fat, alcohol and we are looking for more ways to satisfy those cravings.

Creating and maintaining good habits takes more work to be consistent as a change in routine can disrupt a regular habit which becomes more difficult to resume (we all know how difficult it is to find space in the gym car park in January, by February, there are lots of parking spaces available as enthusiastic newcomers’ interest drops off).

New Year, New You? New Year's Resolutions for Those Who Hate Them

I’m not a fan of traditional New Year’s resolutions. There’s a huge amount of pressure for us to reinvent ourselves for no reason other than the year going up by 1.

Change is best achieved through a marathon, not a sprint. That said, some of us do find the New Year to be a natural point to think about what we’d like to achieve in the coming year. 

Here are 5 tips for how you can do that without setting yourself up to fail.  Read More

Fatty liver is preventable if you know your liver health.

Most of us like to have a social or relaxing alcoholic drink, whether a beer with friends at the weekend, at the end of a hard day’s work or kicking our shoes off at home with a glass of wine.

As a consequence the majority of us know too much alcohol can cause health problems and seriously damage our liver.

However, the choice of foods we eat and exercise we take is now become a more significant problem. Fatty liver is global issue.  Read More

Unlearn Tension. An Exercise following Massage Treatment

My wish for me & you. Let 2020 be the beginning of a decade of self-love and self-acceptance, with greater acceptance of others. A peaceful decade of positive progress where we meet our healing challenges and become our absolute potential, by following our hearts and moving with little steps towards our bliss & our “home” (Heaven On Mother Earth). This is my hope for myself, all those around me and for those I’m so privileged to work with at The Light Centre.

If you work hard for other people, at work or in your family lives; work equally hard for yourself!  Read More
