Sleep is one of the most important factors for health and wellbeing. It helps your body recharge each day. When you don’t get enough, it can significantly impact your mood, energy, concentration, memory, appetite, metabolism and hormones. Sleep matters! I often talk about sleep in clinic and you may have noticed that I often reference it as a therapeutic […]
I read all sorts of books, blogs and articles. There are so many good ideas, interesting facts and compelling words out there. Don’t you reckon? While reading around recently, I came across Goethe’s nine requisites for contented living.* I loved them! Sage advice calling to us – or certainly me – from the early 19th […]
Righto guys. It’s nearly spring. And according to the weather, it actually IS spring. I love this time of year – crispy mornings, bright warm days, and crispy evenings. Gorgeous. With the warmer weather, though, I’m starting to see more and more posts, articles and comments about ‘getting ready’ for summer. People prepping for having […]

Even while I’m away, I’ve got a guest post or two up my sleeve. Click through to read my top tips for nourishing winter skin. We’re in Berlin at the moment and even though this is summertime, it’s currently cold enough to warrant the use of these measures!
It’s that time of year: snot-ridden, cough-laden cold and flu season. As a result, do you know what I’m seeing a lot of? Sick people. In the clinic, yes, that’s to be expected.
