Libido Libido can be knocked off course for a myriad of emotional, psychological, and physical reasons. Feeling tired, sad, or anxious for instance or having raised blood pressure, poor circulation or a gain in weight can all leave our bodies not responding to the prospect of intimacy, in the ways they used to.   window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array(); window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-517ac64f-1ec8-4325-8884-d7837fb393d5' }) This m

The Sugar Rush

By TOP on 13th Apr 2021

The Sugar Rush An inevitable and familiar quick sugar-rush comes after eating foods rich in these added sugars. We all know that feeling after eating biscuits, cakes, sweets, puddings and pastries. A rapid buzz that leaves our brains craving more so that ‘one’ serving rarely feels enough. The fact that they provide few vitamins, minerals, super nutrients and fibres, means that while rich in energy (measured in calories), they give us little nutritional benefit.     window.SHOGUN_IM

Spring Clean

By TOP on 24th Mar 2021

Spring Clean If the idea of a ‘spring-clean’ detox conjures memories of splitting headaches brought on by super strict diet regimes and jettisoning caffeine, it is time to think again. A contemporary spring clean is not about surviving on salad for several weeks and eliminating all coffee and tea. Rather, it involves simultaneously supporting our detox organs while reducing the toxins’ we both put in, on, and expose our bodies to.   window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_

Stress & Skin

By TOP on 19th Mar 2021

Stress & Anxiety When we find ourselves in stressful situations, our bodies release a cascade of hormones, starting with adrenaline. As adrenaline surges around our body, it increases our heart rate and directs blood to our brains and muscles. This helps us to make split second decisions about whether to fight or run from the cause of the stress. Quickly after, cortisol is released and has the effect of raising blood sugar levels to help sustain our reactions. window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SH

Ageing and Antioxidants

By TOP on 18th Mar 2021

Do I need antioxidants on my skin? An antioxidant serum won’t magically change the look of your skin, but your skin will thank you for applying one. Antioxidants are key ingredients in preventing skin ageing, not in treating damage that is already done. In other words, the aim is to prevent wrinkles and other age-related skin changes, not treat them. window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS || new Array(); window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS.push({ hoverImage: '', uuid: 's-6010bca0-1d

Psoriasis What is psoriasis? Most of us make and replace our skin cells every three to four weeks, but if we have psoriasis, we do so every three to seven days. This rapid overproduction of skin cells leads to the build-up of darker patches forming on darker skin tones and red, flaky, crusty patches developing on Caucasian skin caused by the extra blood flowing to the skin to keep up with skin cell growth.` These patches are often overlain with silvery scales and can spring up on any part of our body, including our hands and feet, in the creases o

How to Handle Hay Fever

By TOP on 24th Feb 2021

How to Handle Hay Fever The beauty of new plants stirring into life signals the arrival of spring. While for many this is a time to enjoy the colours and scents blooming all about, for others the pollen that accompanies this blossoming marks weeks and sometimes months of watering eyes and swollen eyelids; stuffy, runny noses, coughing and sneezing. For some, it can even lead to more serious wheezing and shortness of breath. If our bodies respond in this way to pollen, it is understandable if the changing of the season is a double-edged sword.

How to fight puffiness

By TOP on 16th Feb 2021

How to fight puffiness What we tend to refer to as ‘puffiness’ is known to doctors as ‘oedema’, which comes from the Greek word meaning swelling. Oedema occurs when fluids that should be in our lymph system, move into the tissues around it. While this can happen in theory in any part of our body including our face, most often it affects our arms and legs, which can begin to feel heavy and look swollen as a result.   window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS = window.SHOGUN_IMAGE_ELEMENTS ||
