During Dementia Action Week The Alzheimer’s Society is asking everyone across the country to unite against dementia. Dementia is set to be the 21st century’s biggest killer. Awareness and understanding remains low and many families are facing it alone. With this is mind, we are looking at how you can make sure your affairs are looked after by the people you choose. When someone becomes unable to make decisions for themselves one way of dealing with this is for a family member, a friend or a professional Deputy to apply

Now let’s talk nutrition… if there’s one consistent message from the BBG team, it’s that a big push in exercise and a calorie deficit will get you results. It’s biophysics after all! Forget what you’ve learnt or been told by other professionals; you have to trust in the programme as these guys know what they’re talking about. So when you’re advised to eat 1200 calories a day, it might come as a bit of a shock. How can this possibly fuel you while you ramp up your exercise regime? But

6 weeks summer shape off at The Better Body Group! Sounds easy right?

But then it’s always easy to find excuses and there’s always stuff going on so embarking on this mini journey is definitely the right thing to do, right now. Things kicked off with a welcome from Chris, the director at the Better Body

At this time of year when the air is cold and crisp and frost carpets the ground like glittering diamonds, our minds turn to love. To wine and roses and holding hands. What doesn’t come to mind is forgiveness. This is something that is rarely talked about in our culture, and when it is more often thought of as ‘letting off’ the person being forgiven. Forgiveness may be seen as an act of sacrifice, or even something that only saints can manage! But here’s the thing – it takes a

It’s that time of year when lots of us feel under the weather.  The exhaustion of the Christmas and New Year holidays, the mad back to school dash and the lack of sunshine mean many of us won’t be fighting off the germs quite so well at the moment.  Here’s a few tips to help get over the hump. Drink lots of water. Go to bed or lay on the sofa.  Rest is essential to recovery. Suck lozenges or sip honey & lemon in hot water to soothe a sore

Naturopathic Nutritionist, Kiowa Reynolds shares 7 steps we can take to build a stronger immune system in our children… Recurrent infections, colds, flu, gastrointestinal bugs, ear infections, constant runny noses.

Whether you are a Christmas fanatic or a scrooge-wannabe, one thing is for certain: we will eat an excessive amount over the festive season. People consume, on average, around 3000 calories per day at Christmas, over one and a half times more than the

You don’t want it enough Let’s get the most obvious cause out of the way first. We all love the idea of being in great shape, but are not so in love with the hard work it takes to get there. The science of fat loss is relatively simple (for most), aside from some rare gut issues and genetic disorders the majority of us will lose body fat simply by lowering our calorie intake, and raising our activity levels.
