This is going to be a super short - I'm just going to give you one tip that you really must know.

​Eat Eggs…

Good old fashioned eggs are a great source of choline and betaine, a couple of nutrients that lower your levels of a compound called HOMOCYSTEINE.

High levels of homocysteine can trigger blood clots and have also been associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

So keeping your homocysteine levels under control is definitely a very good idea!

That’s it for today. Tuck into those eggs!

Bye for now…

Having been in practice for many years, I’ve seen my fair share of what I call ‘THE LAST RESORT’ cases…

What I mean by this is that sometimes, people consult us basically as a last resort!

They’ve been everywhere, tried everything, sometimes even surgery without success. Then as a last resort, they come to us, hoping something could be done to help them.

Although this can be extremely challenging, when things work out, it’s incredibly gratifying, BUT when they don’t – it’s really DEMORALISING.

But I suppose you’ve got to take the Rough with the smooth!

Now, when things don’t work out, I really try and understand why we didn’t we get results, why did things get so bad in the first place and so on.

I have identified a number of recurring factors and I’d like to share one with you today. It’s dead simple and easily avoidable…

Simple put – it’s called ‘FOLLOW THROUGH’

What I mean is this, when problems are still manageable, many of us can be lax about doing what it takes to sort things properly and we don’t follow through on recommended advice and treatment.

And the problem is that when you don’t follow through, you could be setting yourself up for bigger problems later on.

The best advice and treatment regimens are worthless… unless you follow through.

We’ve all heard the saying – ‘A stich in time saves nine’.

So please follow through. Whether it’s following advice you've been given for weight loss and wellbeing, getting to the gym to train, doing the exercises recommended for your rehabilitation, or taking time out to de-stress before becoming overwhelmed… you’ve got to follow through.

When you do that, you’ll be taking care of your health and your life… and minimising the need for a ‘last resort’

Until next time,

I don't know about you, but I've found that getting up and out to go for a run or to get to the gym for a workout is just ‘a little harder’ than it was 10 years ago.

I remember getting in a ‘30 day fitness program’ about 20 years ago and it was one of my best investments – EVER!

Recently, I’ve spent ages racking my brains to try and figure out what made that particular program so effective. What was that program’s X factor?

I recently stumbled on the answer and I’m going to share it with you…

We needed a new phone line in our new office and the phone company gave us an 8am -1pm timeslot. We were either there on time or that was it – another heaven knows how long until we could get another slot…

So the night before, I had everything ready, and I was up like a shot as soon as my alarm went off and racing to the station. I wasn’t leaving anything to CHANCE, I had to get there on time…

And that’s when it HIT me… The X factor!

I had recently been telling myself how much busier and more hectic life had become and how little time I had to get certain things done…I’m sure you know what I mean.

But on my way in that day, I realised that if something is CRUCIAL enough we find or make the time and we do our best be ready.

So if you’ve been having a hard time getting some CRUCIAL things done, schedule them for first thing in the morning and follow these 3 SIMPLE TIPS…

The night before:
1-Get your stuff ready – whether it’s your running gear or gym clothes, important paperwork, cake ingredients etc. It doesn’t matter, just get it ready so you can crack on the moment you get up
2-Mentally review your objective for about a minute before you turn in for the night
The next day:
3- DO NOT hit the snooze button when your alarm goes off. Don’t even think about it. Get up and get on IMMEDIATELY.

Try that for 30 days and let me know how you get on.
Good luck.

Apparently women who CARVE out a little time daily for some good rest and relaxation have bones that are up to 15% stronger than women who are stressed out all the time.

The reason?

When stress hormone levels stay too high for too long, they kill off osteoblasts--tiny cells that are essential for building fresh new bone tissue.

On the other hand, spending 30 minutes daily doing something relaxing--such as soaking in a hot bath or cat napping can REDUCE damaging stress hormone output in as little as three days.

Do this and you'll be making yourself and your bones stronger.

Fab eh?

ALSO, make sure your Spine & Nerves are also checked regularly - between once or twice a month.

Doing that will also ensure you that your body is functioning as close to it's maximum capacity as possible… then you’ll be super dooper strong!

That's it for now.
Until next time – stay mobile, aligned and strong!

Alzheimer's disease recently popped up in the news again so I thought I'd share a few tips on memory and let you know what you can do to protect it.

Today I'm going to tell you ONE way to help your memory.

You may think it's a bit simple or maybe even weird, but as they say, ‘Don't overlook the obvious!’


EAT MORE CHICKEN.

This low fat protein is loaded with niacin, a B-vitamin that forms a protective barrier around cells and defends against AGING.

Isn’t that incredible?

Now, get this - people who eat the most niacin-rich foods lower their risk of memory decline and Alzheimer's by a massive 80%. Now that’s definitely amazing as far as I’m concerned.

Aim for at least 15 mg of niacin (vitamin B3) daily. It’s likely you’ll get about 13 mg in a medium sized portion of chicken.

But, I’m not talking about the fried chicken that comes in a red box!

Please make sure it’s good quality chicken. HORMONE free organic chicken is best, but if not try to make sure they are at least free range.

So eat more chicken, or if you are veggie – or just don’t like chicken – then you could supplement with a good B-complex vitamin.

When you do that, you're protecting your memory.

More health tips next time…

Today I'm going to share a really simple tip to help you deal with osteoporosis.

Studies have shown that the polyphenols in green tea can help decrease chronic inflammation. What you may not be aware of is that chronic inflammation is a top bone thinning trigger…

So, a good supply of these polyphenols can be highly effective in slowing down bone thinning in as little as 12 weeks – even in post-menopausal women at high risk.

And all YOU need to do is drink a few cups of green tea DAILY.

And just in case you’re not big on tea, there are some other nice alternatives - pomegranate, blueberry and red grape juices are all wonderful for that as well.


​That’s it for today.
Until next time – stay mobile, aligned and strong!
Best wishes,

It may surprise you to learn that your tummy could be to blame. Hard to believe, but it’s true! A recent study revealed that people with ACID REFLUX are 50% more likely to be jarred awake repeatedly at night. Yet many have no idea that their stomach is the culprit because their night time symptoms are so mild.

If you suffer, I know it's easy to reach for antacids and other pills when your tummy plays up, but if you are only treating symptoms, you may actually be allowing things to get worse. The best approach is to address the cause. Get in for a check up today.

Problems affecting your posture, spine and nervous system can cause problems with your stomach.

That’s it for today.

​Best wishes,
Ade
