Understanding Healthy Fats And Which Ones Are Best to Eat

Should I be Taking A Protein Supplement?

  Generally speaking most people don’t need a protein supplement as they will be getting sufficient protein through a well-balanced diet.

Vitamin C and Covid

The ONE BIG secret big pharma is keeping from you to protect against Covid-19 naturally.

Even when I wrote the header it’s sounded like a click bait header but the more, I looked into it and re-wording it, the more it made sense to keep it as it is. The reason I am keeping it is because the statistics and research are strong enough evidence to support it. In fact, many clinical studies support it too: Up to 82% critically ill patients had low Vitamin C values. In an study conducted and written by: Tomasa-Irriguible, T.M., Bielsa-Berrocal, L. COVID-19: Up to 82% critically ill patients had low Vitamin C values. Nutr J 20, 66 (2021).

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. Some women exhibit depression, weight gain, fatigue, osteoporosis, reduced sex drive, vaginal dryness, and hot flushes. I work with my clients to help reduce and relive some of these symptoms with a bespoke, tailored, and nutritional therapy programme. Many respond extremely well to these protocols. Other ladies find great help using small amounts of progesterone used as
