Sexy Liver Or Sexy Estrogen?

So we have had a fantastic article written by Caitlin Moran in The Times on Saturday, July 04 2020. If you missed it then do google it and have a read. It is quite a read, as someone said 'hysterical and heartbreaking'. But here is something about hormones, we talk about the birth control pill to help with teenage acne or heavy periods or endometriosis, we talk about having HRT for the menopause or low libido or vaginal dryness or the hot flushes that can turn...

A Non Binary Understanding Of Vaccines

What is a vaccine?  It is basically an 'injected pathogen' whose role is to MIMIC the natural immune response as closely as possible. As I mentioned in my previous blogs we have the INNATE and ACQUIRED Immune system. NATURALLY, BOTH are activated when a pathogen (invader)' is detected. Remember the Castle and Fort analogy? The goal of vaccines is to MIMIC natural immunity as much as possible without damaging the host. The ideal way of mimicking this would be to...

The Acquired Immune System

This is Part 2 of the immune system, if you missed part 1, you may want to just pop over HERE first. So, what we have is the invaders have managed to cross over the bridge, destroy and overcome the defense of the fort and managed to wade through the water in the moat. If you have low stomach acid (known as hypochlorhydria, or if you are on antacids) or you have had your tonsils removed or some of your lymph nodes, this primary defense is weakened i.e. this innate...

The INNATE Immune System

On this very day I became a mother 17 years ago and it was now my 17-year-old child that got me on this path. I can share this story another time but before him, I was one of those avid 'homeopathic bashing' scientists. I had not even given it a try, I had never experienced homeopathy, never tried it but I was more than happy to 'bash' it. The mention of homeopathy in the laboratory had everyone making jokes about 'pseudoscience'....I look back 17 years on and am...

Tell Me More About Homeopathy

How many pills, how many times, for how long? Sometimes in homeopathy, the language is a bit out-dated. Homeopathy tends to use words like miasma, 'law of the minimum dose', granules, aggravation, succussion etc BUT the medicine is way ahead of its time, do not let the language put you off. It is of no surprise that some people 'roll their eyeballs' when/if we use such language or just switch off. In all honesty, it is the same in traditional medicine, I can sit...

What is Homeopathy?

This morning I read a message on my Instagram account that inspired me to share this blog. I also want to make it clear that in my own life I have people I know and love affected by this virus and one lost their life. Every SINGLE LIFE matters. Homeopathy if it could stop a virus or stop 'X' then it would not be homeopathy. WHY? because homeopathy is about healing, it is also about empowering and evolving our being, physically, mentally and spiritually. Homeopathy...

Health and The Nervous System

I hope you are keeping well and safe. Friday 20th March was my last day in 'clinic' as in face to face, as Neal's Yard have closed all their rooms and shops for the foreseeable future, so ALL my clinic sessions are online, so do connect with me if you want to book a session. Having spoken to my parents who hear a lot of the 'fear' around being vulnerable and the 'deaths' from the pandemic, keep in mind all those who have recovered which do not make it into the...

The Immune System : To Inflame or Not To Inflame?

SO what is it with NSAIDs, such as Ibuprofen….why is it recommended to avoid IBUPROFEN (which is a Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug) if a suspected COVID 19 infection and switch to PARACETAMOL? Although there is yet no REAL strong evidence to show that IBUPROFEN can make coronavirus worse, let’s have look at how it works and that may help to understand why someone with heart, lung or gut issues may want to avoid such medications and look for alternatives...

Brilliant Bile

So let's just get right to it, as I have been sharing quite a bit on FB and Instagram about this vital brilliant bile. I want to share the basics and if you want to read more, you can go to my FB page or Instagram for more 'snippets'.  Functions of BILE….remember it is not about the GALL BLADDER per se but about BILE. The gall bladder is just a ‘storage sack’ for the bile.  Fat digestion and assimilation Antibacterial THYROID hormone activation Detoxifier such as...

What Has Bile Got To With Hormones?

Did you know gall bladder removal is more common in women than men? So what is going on here? Men tend to ‘go for gout’ and women for the gall stones. BOTH conditions involve LIVER imbalances. Have you ever known anyone to have their big toe surgically removed due to the excruciating pain caused by gout? But yet we have gall bladders removed due to gall stone ‘pain’. I am not saying it is the same, but the root cause is not being addressed. Phosphatidylcholine...

Oh Those Brussel Sprouts!

I hope you had a restful Christmas and found yourself choosing Brussel sprouts for Christmas dinner/lunch if they were an option. I enjoyed an infusion of an Indian and British Christmas dinner. We had my mother’s homemade pakoras, samosas with her chickpea curry for starters. These are to ‘die for’. My father made the tandoori chicken and between myself, my siblings and our partners we added in the British tradition that included Brussel sprouts and they were not...

When The Ovaries Retire

When we are born, we have no choice over the health of our adrenals, our mother's health, her mental-emotional well being, our maternal history, the environment that we are conceived in, the medications that she had been taking, for example, the birth control pill prior to falling pregnant will all impact our adrenal health. Her health pre, peri and post-pregnancy impacts our adrenals. ..Let's just say her WHOLE well being is really in the interest of our well...

What Has Digestion Got To Do With My Hormones?

When training as a nutritionist nearly 20 years ago, we were taught so much about the hormonal system and hormones and biochemical pathways of hormone metabolism, that it all got a bit 'tunnel vision' like. Sometimes we can easily lose sight of the WHOLE body system connection. I always encourage students to take a bird's eye view of the WHOLE, otherwise, we just end up working at the symptom level and not addressing the underlying imbalance(s).  Here is a  little...

Have High Blood Pressure?

HEALING or SUPPRESSING?

Definition of HEALING by one of my client's after her first session ...   ‘It is just beautiful, this is all very fascinating, healing is such a beautiful mess’ Now, it is not like this for everyone, but this is what it can look like, firstly how do you know you are healing? In homeopathic terms, HEALING occurs from - the top-down - the inside-out - from the return of old symptoms It may sound all very cryptic…but I will explain it.  Usually, when someone wants to...

Are you taking Vitamin C or Ascorbic Acid?

Hi there,  I wanted to share a little on Vitamin C, especially as we are in the thick of winter here, well it feels like the thick of winter. Are you taking VITAMIN C or are you taking ASCORBIC ACID?  I remember when I first explained to my younger child when he was about 3 years of age,  as he was peeling the white thread-like material called the pith off the orange segments, that it is highly nutritious. He would peel off the pith and then eat the orange. I grew...

The Web of ADHD part 2

If you do not follow me on social media then you may want to read PART1 first.  If you do, then let’s jump right in. I want to share a case of ADHD, but before I do, I really want to explain this infographic a little. I mentioned in part 1 that dopamine, that wonderful neurotransmitter (lacking in ADHD) comes from an amino acid called TYROSINE. Now have a look at the image, this tyrosine requires a whole load of ‘magical conversions’ to ‘turn into’ dopamine. This...

The web of ADHD Part 1

The symptoms of ADHD vary from aggression (bursts), through to difficulty concentrating, lying to impulsive behaviour and more. When children are prescribed medication for ADHD it tends to be one of the two, RITALIN or ADDERALL. Both of these meds 'twiddle' around with neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are 'chemicals' naturally produced by various parts of our body especially the brain. The cells speak to one another by releasing these neurotransmitters. In...

The Holy Trinity

Hi, I have been in this industry for the last 30 years, my first degree was in Pharmacology and I find the way man-kind has 'mimicked nature' quite saddening but at the same time AMAZING and life-saving. I was in A&E over a month ago and THANK GOODNESS for IV morphine! THANK GOODNESS for our medics, our nurses, our medic students, and the NHS. My opioid receptors 'fully awakened to the moon and back'. I share posts as I am passionate about health and...

The Cholesterol Mania

The 'statin mania' is in full force. Yesterday on my way back from a meeting in London on the train, I overheard two older women discussing their cholesterol levels and one of them was absolutely convinced her joint pains started after the cholesterol-lowering medication she was put on. I joined in their conversation and discovered both of them were also put on vitamin D to boot,  no respect for the 'holy trinity'. Statins are a class of drugs prescribed to lower...

Stoptober and Heart Health

Hi, So some of my clients are doing STOPTOBER, if you are doing STOPTOBER, then I would recommend having your homocysteine levels tested before and after October. I get my clients to do this at the beginning of STOPTOBER and at the end...and the results speak for themselves, some go onto quit smoking which is the icing on the cake! This post is ALSO for the men, although women would also benefit. Most of the male clients I see in clinic come for - heart issues -...
