Do you know that moody friend, or family member that can be beaming rays of sunshine one minute, then oozing black moods and taking a swipe at you the next?  Perhaps this is something you’re struggling with yourself, but your doctor has written you off as suffering depression or anxiety and simply prescribed an antidepressant.  Well before you write off your friend or family member, or even yourself as just being ‘moody’ or depressed, you may want to consider that there maybe something biochemical at play, and no I’m not talking about a split personality disorder!  I’m talking about an easily diagnosable … Continue reading

6 Natural Ways To Manage Anxiety & Depression

6 Natural Ways To Manage Anxiety & Depression

Whenever I write a post related to anxiety or depression, or about how food affects your mood, there always seems to be a greater response from readers in comparison to other topics I write about.   I can only put this phenomenon down to the fact that more and more people are suffering from these conditions and searching for answers.  I first witnessed this growing epidemic through my clinical practice, when more than half of my patients reported anxiety and depression as being one of the major issues impacting their health and day-to-day life. I’ve also been in relationships with sufferers of chronic anxiety and depression, … Continue reading

9 Tips For Overcoming Chronic Illness

When I was in my early twenties, I thought I was on top of life, training for a marathon and forging what I believed was going to be a successful career in advertising, until one day life had a different plan in store. It decided I needed to spend the best part of four years in bed – sleeping up to 21 hrs a day, too exhausted to move and wracked with pain  – to the point I had to crawl upstairs on my backside because my legs were so weak.  What began as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, later progressed to SLE – … Continue reading

Nowadays it’s possible to buy everything from almond through to cashew nut milk, and the latest kid on the block – macadamia! But are these commercial brands of nut milk really all they’re cracked up to be as far as their nutritional value and the hefty price tag many of them tend to carry? Those looking to replace cow’s dairy … Continue reading
