Cancer treatment varies depending on the nature and progression of the disease. It can focus on eliminating cancer tumours and cells, slowing down or stabilising the spread of the disease.
I encourage my clients to indulge over the Christmas period because we are more concerned about what happens between New Year to Christmas, not Christmas to New Year.
A better plan then, may be what I encourage all of my training clients to do and that is lose some weight in anticipation that you may 'overeat' a little. That way you could enjoy some of what you fancy over the holidays and come through the whole experience weighing what you normally do.
Green juices, in particular, are highly potent because they have highly concentrated nutrients, explain Jay and Linda: "[They] are a high source of chlorophyll which metabolises oxygen in the bloodstream, purifying it and at the same time cleansing the kidneys, liver and urinary tract. Green juices also stimulate the peristaltic wave in the intestines and move the bowels."
Walking through the lobby at work, I spotted it immediately. Hanging, totally blasé, in the nook of a woman's arm. But it wasn't just the one. In fact, there were dozens of them, swinging casually from limbs.
What has not been investigated until now, was how wealth impacted on personality in taking drugs. Being surrounded by poverty and the availability of drugs also appears to be strongly predictive of taking up heroin and cocaine habits.
Celebrating a life can lighten the pain of loss - sharing special moments of meaning, private and public. Mixing numbness, heart break, tears of pain and the longing to hold, talk, see, hear the other just on more time with pride, joy and gratitude for what we have experienced with and because of the other, who has gone.

Have you ever marvelled at how babies and young children exude pure trust in the world around them? It's worth remembering we were all like that once. But when I became curious about my own loss of trust story, I discovered I'd grown up with a lot of fear and negativity around me.
After age 30, we tend to lose lean tissue at an average of 5% per decade. The amount of fat on the other hand, goes up steadily and may rise at a much higher rate. The need to hold onto our lean tissue goes far beyond the desire for a bikini look body.
After doing a powerful process called The Path of Love I realised I had a lot of anger from past hurt and experiences in my life. I started looking into what that effect this had on my health and came across a lot of research and evidence to suggest that repressed anger, hate and resentment is the leading root emotion causing the development of cancer.
We've all just got to get over this. In a society where access to medication and medical staff is freely available, it is not only our right to get ourselves checked out, but our duty.
When scientists announced this week that the male contraceptive pill is a step closer to being developed my first thought was 'It took them 52 years since the female pill to get this far.'
Often people are aware of their addictive behaviour and would like to stop or slow down. However, the illusion of the addiction can be so powerful that the fear of not being able to cope without it is overwhelming and can suffocate even the smallest attempt to take control of the situation and muster the confidence to change.
Everything in moderation, including moderation, right? So often bandied about as the 'top tip' for surviving the Holiday Season, yet so rarely accompanied by useful advice on HOW exactly to 'moderate'.
