Eczema is a Gift

When I got my first patch of rough, dry, sore skin I didn’t think much of it. I was 20, the doctors said it was pretty normal after a tonsillectomy and sent me away with a tube of Dovebet steroid cream.

Then the patches started to spread. They appeared on my torso, under my arms, on […]

Secret to a Healthy Weight Loss

A lot of people come to Balanced Wellness because they want to lose weight.

What most people do is cut back on what they eat and increase exercise however this doesn’t always give the desired results. If you are reducing your food intake and going hungry the blood sugar spikes. And then we start to crave food.This makes it harder to go without food making us hungry and crave carbs and sugar. We cave and then end up eating rubbish.

Exercise can be a problem if you have a very stressed Endocrine system. For example running, if the body is already stressed then it will go into crisis mode and will start storing fat. Hormones will start to be produced which can’t be filtered out so the body starts storing these hormones, such as cortisol, in fat cells therefore, people who diet and then force themselves to take part in activities (like running) normally end up putting on more weight!

Vitamin D – The Sunshine Vitamin

Having left London when I was 5 years old, I grew up in rural Suffolk, a child of the 70s with the heat wave in 1976 being the hottest summer on record.  TV was limited to Play School after school and Swap Shop on a Saturday morning, which allowed my parents to have a lie in.

My brother, sister and I would spend most of our free time exploring and playing in the great outdoors that was our adventure playground.  Our nearest friends were a cycle ride away, the nearest shop, a farmyard tuck shop, was a 15 minute walk across the fields.  Visits to friend’s birthday parties were a rarity.

We made dens with sun loungers, climbed trees, played badminton of sorts over a make shift net made of garden string, painted pictures outdoors, ran amuck amongst the bales of hay in neighboring fields, and squealed with delight as our gorgeous English Pointer of a dog would tow my younger brother, sister and I across the lawn on his blanket, gripping it between his teeth until his gums bled, such was his devotion to us. […]

IBS. The secret bitter pill that drugs won’t sweeten

Too Little Acid CAUSES Heartburn

feeling the burn

We shout at the TV a lot.

Adverts drive us bonkers. If it’s not the Actimel adverts promoting friendly gut bacteria (that contain high levels of sugar which bad bacteria feeds from) it’s the cosmetic adverts promoting youth as if being a woman past 35 is something to be shameful of. And don’t get me started on the shaving adverts…

But there is one advert that makes us fume above all others. And that’s the acid ingestion / heartburn adverts. […]
