D’oh, it’s dopamine!

We’ve made it through the holidays. Hurrah! This post might seem long but it’s kind of all connected. This post will be looking at how we might think a bit differently about aspects of ourselves by becoming more aware of the role of dopamine. You may have noticed from my somewhat nightmarish vision of christmas decorations and my language that I don’t relish the season we’ve now turned our back on. I’m...

Seeking Health

Everything’s relative nowadays and my idea of health is probably quite different to yours or a kitten’s for that matter.

And then stay at home to keep her (and us) entertained. She’s working a treat so far. I think I need to get back to short...

Any port in a storm?

I feel now, this image works better – something’s wrong with what would normally be a charming image of rural countryside. There might be any number of...

Candida Overgrowth Part 2 and/or SIBO?

This is the second part of my candida cleanse collection of posts. What can we do after finding our spit sinks first thing in the morning? (please see the previous post for details on sinking spit here). I’ve entered into this protocol with a bit more vigour than in the past and am now into my 3rd month of a daily diet of pretty much no sugar, booze, yeast and/or vinegar but lots of fresh veg (mostly greens less starch) and no...

Candida Schmandida?

There’s regularly much mention in complementary/well being/alternative circles about troubles with candida albicans, its overgrowth and the many and varied symptoms it can create in humans. This post will be looking at just one strand of how to get a body working better by introducing how to see if it’s a problem for you. My next post will go into greater detail about how to reduce it’s presence in the body. Have a...
