Avoid drinking cold water – always have it room temperature or warm

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 in News, Tips

Many of my clients complain that if they drink their 2-3 litres of water per day, then they wee loads!  This is because they are drinking cold water.  The body hates cold water as it affects the temperature of our bodies,  We need our bodies to function properly and temperature is a very important aspect in order for this to happen. When you drink tepid water you wee less and hydrate more effectively.

Susan Patterson explains why we should avoid cold water.  Enjoy!

‘While a glass of ice water can sound incredibly refreshing, it turns out that there are a number of reasons why drinking cold water can be harmful and warm water is far more beneficial.

I’m trying Intermittent Fasting – Its easy! I have more energy and I’ve lost weight!

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 in News, Tips

Hey All,

I’ve started fasting lately. Its only been a few weeks but I can’t believe how much energy I have. Eating in a certain time-frame has resulted in weight loss, I feel like I’ve lost inches, which is always a bonus!

One of my clients told me about her friend that gave it a go and lost nearly a stone in 6 weeks!!  For me I want to rest and repair so my body has a better chance to heal.  I eat well but I’m aware I eat often, so my body doesn’t have much time to digest, repair and rest.

Whilst trying this fasting technique, its highlighted to me how we overeat and I may think about eating breakfast but I’m not actually hungry.  This reconfirms our relationship with food and how it controls us, makes up happy, comforts us, however, its there to keep us alive for survival, not to make us happy.

We all need to stop making food such a big importance, as being with friends, family, exploring the great outdoors and experiences are better for the soul. Yes socially eating nice food with friends/family is wonderful and important, but we all put so much focus around this, and then wonder why we are all tired, overweight and battling disease.

There are so many easy ways to be healthier without it being too much.  I can only be healthy if I feel happy about it.  I want to enjoy my life and the wonderful flavours of the world.  However, only if I can be healthy and prevent disease.  Fasting is a quick and easy way to achieve better health and excellent weight management.

This is what I do on a daily basis, why don’t you give it a go.

I stop eating and drinking from 8pm at night until 10am the next day (14 hours).  In that time I can only have water, that’s it. Its pretty easy.  If by 10am you still don’t feel hungry, then keep going till lunch, 14 – 18 hours of fasting is great!

You may think about snacking or breakfast, but in time that goes.  However, notice, I say ‘think’!!!  I’m not actually hungry when I think about snacking or breakfast, its just the habit/addiction I’ve formed over the years with sugar that drives my thoughts!!

I feel more in control of my eating and I like that I’m doing something good for my body, and the benefit of shedding a few pounds a week suits me too!!!

Asian Broth with Salad

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 in Essential Health Recipes, News, Tips
I’m loving broths at the moment.  A nice broth and salad for lunch is a tasty and healthy treat.

Broth – Gently fry in coconut oil some spring onions, ginger, miso, garlic, chilli, salt and pepper.  Then add thinly chopped tomatoes and celery. Add water to cover mixture.  Lots of lemon grass and lime.  Add rice noodles (optional) and pak choi then simmer for a while.  Add more spices or flavours to suit your taste.

If you can leave this dish off the heat all night even better. Finish off after gently warming with coriander upon serving.

Salad – Romaine lettuce, sun dried tomatoes, beetroot – finish off with olive oil, apple cider vinegar and lemon.

This Is The New, Groundbreaking Way To Treat Acne

by Dr. Sarah Villafranco

At its core, acne is an inflammatory condition. Bacteria cause trouble by triggering a cascade of inflammatory chemicals and cellular activity in the skin. The result of this inflammatory frenzy is increased blood flow (causing redness) and an influx of helper white blood cells called phagocytes, which attempt to wall off and contain the offending bacteria, leading to a pus collection, either under the skin or at the surface (aka a zit) The message? You can’t put low-quality fuel in the machine and expect stellar performance—it’s not fair to your poor little body. Here are the biggest offenders:




The Supplements I Recommend To All My Plant-Based Patients

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 in News, Tips

When adopting a vegan or vegetarian diet make sure you have all of your essential nutrients.  I meet many clients in clinic that are gluten free, vegan or vegetarian but have a highly processed diet.  You need fresh clean foods like vegetables, fruit, seeds, beans and less convenience foods.  Joel Kahn explains what nutrients are needed to ensure you are giving your body everything it needs for best health.  Enjoy Danielle


by Dr. Joel Kahn

After 40 years of choosing a plant-based diet and 30 years of advising patients to do the same, I still get concerned when I see vegans eating a poor diet, as there are a variety of foods that carry the vegan label but are unlikely to promote health. For example, both Taco Bell and White Castle are promoting plant-based options. And while this may work in a pinch, the mainstay of a health-promoting eating pattern needs to be whole foods with single ingredients, focusing on nonprocessed staples like fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts, and seeds.
