How Much Water Should I Drink a Day?

Here at Nutritionist London we are always telling people they should drink more water.  Most people simply don’t drink enough water each day, but how much should you be drinking?  There’s a lot of advice out there but it can be confusing.

Menopause Support

Menopause and How Nutritional Therapy Can Help

I have equal numbers of men and women as my clients but perhaps one of the most conditions I am asked to support these menopausal symptoms for women. There are a wide range of conditions exhibited by women and each person is different.

Other ladies find great help using small amounts of progesterone used as
