Why am I so tired?

"But doctor, I'm getting 8 hours of sleep and I'm still waking up tired!" There's nothing more frustrating - the constant tiredness, the brain fog, the poor memory, the inability to form a coherent sentence, the joint pain, the breathlessness - only to be advised to try and get more sleep. Of course, lack of sleep, or good quality sleep, may well be a factor, and "sleep hygiene" - tricks and habits to set you up for a peaceful night of uninterrupted sleep - is a good place to start. But it's certainly not the end. Even if your [...]

What to look for in a nutritional supplement

"Four out of five of the herbal supplements tested contained none of the labelled ingredients" The media love to pounce on findings that indicate supplements don't work, in order to decry the whole of the supplement industry. There is no doubt that, with such a confusing array of nutritional and herbal supplements available online, in healthfood stores, and even on supermarket shelves, it's difficult to know which ones are worth the money. And because the industry is unregulated (or self-regulated) there are a great many supplements that are substandard, ineffective or even harmfully contaminated. So how do you identify [...]

Sperm counts!

Fertility clearly isn't just a woman-thing. Up to 30 percent of cases of infertility worldwide are thought to be due to sperm-quality issues1. In the UK, 1 in 7 couples have difficulty conceiving, and one in four of these are from unknown causes - unknown, that is, to conventional medicine. The conventional avenues of treatment are drugs, surgery or assisted conception – including intra-uterine insemination (IUI) and in vitro fertilisation (IVF)2, but aside from addressing a blockage these generally focus on the woman rather than the man. So, couples are increasingly turning to nutrition and lifestyle medicine to address the root [...]

Breakfast matters

Earlier in the year (7th March) was "World Cereal Day", when food companies extolled the virtues of consuming ultra-processed foods for the "most important meal of the day". Many of us in the Western world already need no persuasion: 46% of Americans and 20% of British people start their day with breakfast cereals, and the British spoon £19 billion a year into the coffers of the grain processors. Cereals are big business! Little wonder that the industry is anxious to increase its share of the breakfast pie. Non-soak cereals first landed on the American breakfast table with John Harvey Kellogg's [...]

Letting go

In Chinese Traditional Medicine, and specifically Five Element theory, the Lung and Large Intestine are associated with the Metal element, and an imbalance in these may manifest itself in lung conditions such as asthma, skin problems like eczema, or digestive problems in the large intestine. Five Element theory is not confined to physical symptoms though. Every aspect of life is embraced. The Metal element is about grief, cleaning out, letting go, boundaries. Its colour is white, its taste hot and spicy. The sound of Metal is weeping or sighing, its odour is rotten, its emotion grief and mourning of what [...]
