How to recover from over-indulgence at Christmas

I hope you have had a lovely, relaxing Christmas.  And, more to the point, did your tummy survive the season of indulgence?  I hope that some of the tips I shared in my Christmas Survival Guide, and in my two blog posts on bloating enabled you to enjoy a few festive treats and avoid unpleasant […]

How to prevent festive bloating

How to prevent festive bloating

Nutritionally speaking, the festive season is a total shock to the system. Suddenly we’re eating large roast dinners with rich desserts, devouring endless boxes of chocolates, and drinking countless glasses of champagne.

What causes bloating?

We’ve all been there – overindulged on all the festive food and wound up feeling like a stuffed turkey, in the most uncomfortable of ways.  Stomach bloating is a common problem that occurs after eating too much. So it’s not really surprising if you feel permanently puffed up at the moment, with all the office […]

Taking time out to focus on my health and wellbeing

Keep your tummy happy this Christmas

I can’t believe that we are coming to the end of another year – and that Christmas is almost upon us! I always feel a slight sense of panic at this time of the year. I begin to worry about how I’m going to get everything done – buying and wrapping gifts, shopping for all […]

About 40% of people in the […]

Using nature to heal your gut and improve your skin

Heal your gut, heal your skin

On my 14th birthday, my parents gave me a book called Feed Your Face by Diana Binchin. The book is no longer in print. In fact, when I Google it, it’s nowhere to be found. The book included a number of recipes made from natural ingredients, full of the nutrients that are great for your […]

Problem skin? It’s time to look at your gut health

At least 50% of the patients who come to see me in my clinic with their digestive disorders also have an issue with their skin. They complain that their skin looks dull, grey and sallow, or they’re struggling with spots, dry patches, yeasty patches or itchiness. What causes skin problems in adults? It’s not easy […]

The benefits of taking charcoal

I’ve been a natural health therapist for over 28 years and have carried out over 100,000 consultations and treatments in that time. I’ve always recommended a charcoal cleanse when the seasons change in March, June, September and December for a general gut ‘re-set’. However, you don’t have to wait until the seasons change before embarking […]

Why do we get constipated?

In my role as a colon hydrotherapist and the founder of Just For Tummies, barely a day goes by when I’m not asked about constipation.  This comes as no surprise to me. According to a recent study carried out at King’s College London, 1 in 7 adults and 1 in 3 children in the UK […]

All You Need to know about omega-3 fats

What are Omega-3 fats? Omega-3 fatty acids are essential building blocks for our bodies. Two types are from fish oils; eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and a third form comes from flax seed oil, which I will discuss later. As our bodies cannot manufacture Omega-3 ‘s, we need to get them from our […]

Salt – good or bad?

Everything you need to know When it comes to the two most common food cravings – sweet and salty – we tend to fall into one camp or the other: sweet tooth or savoury tooth.  I’m in the latter category.  I would not thank you for a bowl of ice cream or a sticky bun, […]
