Drink Water – Stay Hydrated

Social Share Toolbar

With the recent humid weather here in Marbella, I hear a lot of clients tell me that they have no energy and feel fatigued, that the weather has drained them and they feel tired all the time. Well it seems to me that they are not getting enough water and with the increased temperatures it’s very important to keep hydrated. Drinking more water actually helps increase your energy levels as water accounts for approximately 60% of our body weight. Every single one of our organs and bodily systems require water in order to function properly. Dehydration, even at low levels,…

Are smoothies better than juices?

Social Share Toolbar

What do you like better smoothies or juices? what’s the difference ? and Why I think smoothies are a better option when it comes to promoting overall general health. When you blend something, although the food gets pulverised, you still end up consuming the food in its entirety. So, if you blend up a pear and a cup of spinach, your body digests an entire pear and a whole cup of spinach. When you juice something, on the other hand, the fibrous portion of the fruit or vegetable is removed. And, what you’re left with are the micronutrients (and the sugars), in a…

Drinking Golden Milk Every Day Could Keep the Doctor Away

Golden Milk is an ancient Ayurvedic drink made using turmeric and milk – and it’s one of the best ways I know to incorporate turmeric into one’s daily diet. Turmeric is known to have so many health benefits due to curcumin, a powerful polyphenol antioxidant that also gives turmeric its beautiful golden colour. Drinking it just before bed is a wonderful way to relax and helps boost the immune system while sleeping or you may prefer to enjoy it first thing in the morning or even drink it in place of coffee. SO why is it so good for us?…

Spinach

It’s available all year round but is in season during the spring (March – June), it’s easy to buy, easy to use in recipes and salads and is delicious. Spinach has remarkable abilities to restore energy, increase vitality and improve the quality of the blood because it is rich in chlorophyll, (a potent alkaliser and blood builder) It’s super high in vitamin K, vitamin A, manganese, folate, magnesium, iron, vitamin c…

Green Juice

It’s quite simple and logical isn’t it? what you put in your body makes all the difference in the world, If you over indulged on the chocolate, alcohol and generally over did it at Easter, I will bet you don’t feel your best after it. Eating correctly can help you relieve tiredness, headaches, stress, etc. giving you a boost of general goodness. Essentially, you are what you eat so if you consume a lot of sugar, additives and saturated fats, you can’t even expect to feel good in the long run?! Ingredients: • 2 Green apples halved • 4 Stalks celery…

Exercise for Good Digestive Health

Social Share Toolbar

The impact of exercise on the gastrointestinal tract and digestion has been less well investigated than the same territory for heart, muscle and skeleton. However, over the past decade good studies have clearly demonstrated positive effects on a variety of conditions. Inflammatory bowel disease and liver disease are significantly improved by exercise. The risk for colon cancer and ulcers is decreased by exercise. In addition to prevention and treatment of disease, normal function of the gastrointestinal tract improves with exercise. For instance, gastric emptying, the passage of food out of the stomach, proceeds more efficiently when exercise is part of your daily routine. Many digestive problems are…
