PTSD – Steps, Reading & Mentality

I wanted to write this post because I have spoken to a few people who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, but they can’t bring themselves to write down how they feel, to see any positives or any hope. I want them to realise it doesn’t have to be all doom & gloom, & something as…

Green Thai Chicken & King Prawn Curry – Low Carb

When it comes to cook, I try to experiment as much as possible. Using new recipes & approaches you often learn new ways of cooking & an appreciation/understanding for flavour combinations. Today I really fancied something creamy, but spicy; high in protein but low in carbs. I didn’t have a recipe to go by. Instead…

There Is No ‘One True Way’

We all want to be healthy. We all want to live happier & for longer. But we all want it now & for it to be easy. We all want to know the secret for success. But if there was one true way to achieving your goals, don’t you think it would be set in…

The Power Of Watermelon

ME/CFS: How I’m Beating It

I woke up Dec 19th 2013 & decided it was time to stop. Stop telling myself it was OK to let my fitness fall under further. It had been three years or so by now, since my doctor diagnosed me with ME, also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I remember that day well. His words…

Acupuncture: Why you should try it

I won’t lie to you, the thought of people choosing to  have fine needles put into their body for whatever reason has always shocked me. Despite claims it has great health benefits for both therapeutic & preventative purposes, I’ve always been pretty skeptical & said I’d never try it. However I was recently booking a massage…
