“Save money, be good to the environment and look younger with nature’s natural gift, Nutria.”Most of us live in a busy, stressful and fast paced world that is damaging to our health.

This is why we should be using more of nature’s Read more

The HCG diet program claims to help you lose weight, fast. But of all the different weight loss programs that are currently being marketed, why should you choose this one over the others? After all, the secret behind HCG’s apparent success is just a simple low calorie diet, right? Well actually there’s more to it than just cutting back your food intake. True, the HCG diet program does require you to strip back your calorie intake to just 500 per day – a level at which most people would expect to start shedding unwanted pounds.

Most people would agree that regular sex within a loving, mutually respectful relationship is no doubt a great thing in life. It’s exciting, expressive and it can also be tons of good fun.

Wrapping both legs around your neck and ‘omming’ to the tune of a big gong with your eyes closed is not what I’m suggesting you do. Yoga sometimes gets a bad press for being a little bit elitist in its imagery: svelte, beautiful young things without an ounce of fat on them bending in ways that make your toes curl; virtually naked, wizened old men sitting with legs akimbo, tea towel just about preventing any ‘extras’ from being on display. Yoga for the average Joe can seem a little out of league, or at least a bit chilly. But the Read more

Oil. It causes wars, heart attacks and chip pan fires. It can also extend life, slow down the ageing process, and bring communities together where its source farmed and harvested. The world depends on oil and so do our bodies. All oils are sources of fat, and all diets require fat to keep them balanced. This type of advice can be hard to swallow if you’re worried about your weight and are trying to get rid of fat. But with so many oils on the market, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the choices and confused by the chemistry. Don’t Read more

Face of a sexy beautiful young woman with clean skin on a white background

Have you ever seen the movie with Meryl Streep, ‘Death Becomes Her’? Two women attach themselves to a man who has discovered an immortality treatment that has fatal consequences. The movie is a grim satire of the modern world’s obsession with youth, and the lengths people will go to in order to stay looking young and beautiful. Youth is not an obsession belonging to the 21st century; Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ reflected the growing, upper class fixation of outer beauty and youthful appearances- a mere mask, of course, for the ugliness that lies beneath. The Ageing Process Read more

The human body is smart bit of gear, designed to wash out nasties and unwanted toxins so that it operates in tip-top condition. The lungs, kidneys, digestive tract, liver and skin are all major organs that flush the body of waste and excess that the body doesn’t need as well as helping fight disease, viruses and kill bad bacteria. And what fuel we put in decides how well our machinery operates. Running petrol through a diesel engine reduces lubrication causing metal damage; the car wont run as smoothly and will eventually break down if its owner keeps putting the wrong Read more

Feeling hungry is a very real and acute sensation, and when we are unable to eat when we feel like we need to, it can be anything from mildly uncomfortable to very distressing. You can become irritable, tearful or even angry. Extreme dieting and drastic changes to eating habits in order to lose weight can be emotional and draining, making losing weight and keeping healthy a grueling and exhausting process. The body’s instinct is to eat when hunger sensations start; we reach for the fridge, stop in at the bakery or dig out a snack from a bag. You might Read more

What is a habit and why do we do it? A habit is something we do repeatedly, becoming ingrained and part of our psychical being. Some are good, and some are bad. Let’s clarify: ‘habit’ is different from addiction where the body physically craves a chemical or a substance, like nicotine or alcohol. Habit is what defines us as animals, helping us keep a routine so that we survive and function healthily and happily. We keep routines so that certain chores get done: waking up every morning so we get to work on time; brushing our teeth twice a day Read more
