positivity, because you’re worth it!

It’s been a kind of a busy season including the most recent piece in my health and wellbeing puzzle which involved a welcome shot of positivity… and an overnight stay in den Haag last month. Most if not all the posts in this blog from the last year and more, address something in life which can be adapted or adjusted to make our life a little bit better. Life hacks? Hardly, as I lack the dedication to attach scientific rigour to...

stress and pedalogate!

stress and pedalogate!

My lack of speed in getting a post out allows me to refer to stress and pedalogate and roll a couple of subjects together that I think are related. One of them has a more English sensibility to it and the other is global in its appeal. Both, I feel are worth thinking about a bit more thoughtfully as human beings. The first is Pedalogate! The British media had a field day when the newspapers were full of stories that highlighted some...

If we go out to a party we might try and arrange not to have anything too taxing to do the day afterwards....

Circulation Cracked?

Circulation Cracked?

what does this image have to do with improved bloodflow? Nothing, except mackerel is also good for the brain. So, what if any benefits have I noticed after beginning to address circulation and bloodflow issues in me in 2012? Has improved bloodflow below my head made any sort of difference at all? I believe it has and will list the three things I’m sure have improved and touch on a couple of other points at the end. HEAT...

The Bloodflow Show

In this post I’d like to look at a health documentary on a relatively mainstream TV channel that was presented by a doctor. The show, indirectly, touched on two aspects of methods I use to deal with the physical effects of this ‘theory’ of MS that just doesn’t seem able to be put to rest. I’d like to try and present in 400 or so words my frustration with relatively mainstream MS research. On BBC4 last...
