What’s the difference between a Juice Detox and a Fast?

I did my Juice Detox Retreat training back in 2000 as an addition to the second year of my Naturopathic Nutrition course. It inspired me to want to create a similar nurturing, relaxing space for my own clients so for the first couple of years I ran them for colleagues as practice runs. This […]

Ultra Processed Foods Increase Cancer Risk

The Valentine’s day nutrition research published by the B.M.J may sound like a bit of a ‘no-brainer’ or perhaps that is just my opinionated view!  Processed foods are so devoid of nutrients that if they constitute a percentage of the diet, it comes as no surprise to me that they will correspondingly increase the risk […]

Our whole family drinks water, often warm, out of big mugs through the day.  A few months ago, probably aged about 5 months, my little granddaughter Connie started to grab the mug of whoever was holding her and pull the mug towards her mouth.  She wanted to join in this activity whatever it was […]

Gardasil vaccine for Human Papilloma virus causes premature Menopause

New Year Juice Detox … No thanks, it’s Winter!

Last year, Jason Vale exhorted a 28 day Juice detox through several social media and this year has seen a flood of recommendations to do 3 or 5 day juice detoxes with some businesses offering to ship out the juices to you.  I had a good handful of new clients arrive for an appointment in […]

A useful Naturopathic technique
Naturopathic techniques are a helpful support for detoxing the body that Look After You work with and advise use of, alongside changes in Nutrition.  A cleaner, lighter way of eating will often prompt the body to sweep away the cobwebs and when that waste starts moving, it can be challenging for […]

Physics of the Moon affects our health

With two eclipses approaching with the New Moon on September 13th and with the Full Moon on September 28th, it seemed like a good idea to describe the physics of the Moon and its effects on the Earth and on ourselves.
