I honestly believe that alcohol-related memory problems are hugely under-reported and mistaken for Alzheimer's disease. Ten years ago I would have been treating no more than three people at any one time for alcohol-related brain damage. Now there are at least 10 patients with that in my clinical service.
The main difference to my mind between wellness and Wellness is that the former is actually accessible to everyone. Before I clarified this distinction in my mind, I wrote a blog post dripping with sarcasm and rage, in which I vented.
According to a survey, 79% of people said they would welcome measures to curb alcohol intake on flights while 11% said they would be happy with a total ban. But banning alcohol on a flight isn't the solution because the problem is in fact much, much bigger than our inability to say no to free drinks on a plane.
Barbell front squats provide all the muscle building stimulus of a back squat, but with more emphasis on the quads and less on the lower back, hips and hamstrings. Don't expect to push as much weight on a front squat, but if you can set aside your ego, the results will be more than worth it.
I am a dermatologist. I suffer with acne. I have often thought about writing about my experiences and then promptly talked myself out of it. And when I've tried to psychoanalyse why, it is because at times, I still feel resounding shame and embarrassment of my skin.
Though tomorrow may be indeed a tale told by an idiot, signifying nothing, my tomorrow is a tale told by my idiot, and pride demands that I give my to...
As we've kissed goodbye to the winter months - apart from the very random snow storms recently. We've stepped into all things spring. New life is appearing in all forms. We have beautiful blossom on the trees, bluebells, daffodils, green leaves and the appearance of brighter sunshine and longer days.
There's no exact measurement for the amount of ingredients here; mix and match whatever veggies you like, add some sprouts, rice noodles, shrimp, different herbs, etc. The beauty of these is using what you have on hand or changing it up with what's in season for different colours, flavours, and textures.
Oh hello, yes you- hard to believe it but you in fact are brilliant. Imagine if we spoke to each other and ourselves like this, what a different space in our heads and in the world we would live in.
Nothing commands respect in the gym like a heavy deadlift with impeccable form. But even more importantly, the deadlift is one of the most powerful full body muscle builders on the planet. If you've got a strong deadlift in your locker, chances are you're already a pretty big dude.
The truth is that many woman can have no external indicators of how much trouble their body is in after chronically abusing alcohol. It is a game of chance. Some women die in their sleep. Some just keel over and do it at the table. None know it is coming.
Just walk for 20 minutes a day and wake up to the wonders that walking can do for your health. The NHS recommends that all adults do a minimum of 150 minutes of physical activity a week and walking can form part of this - it's easy, accessible and inexpensive. Walking uses more than 200 muscles in your body and can have a lasting impact on your physical and mental health.
Fundamentally, chronic problems need a different approach to acute ones. The magic bullet intervention that works for acute illness does not work as well for chronic problems. These often need many small but positive changes that, when implemented together, can have a powerful synergistic effect.
What is it that makes the fairer species cripple at the thought of releasing some intestinal pressure, and that this release may lead to romantic or social repercussions? "It's not that I can't fart in front of him," a friend admits over lunch when I tell her what I plan to write on. "I just know that he finds it unattractive. So I don't."
I wrote in my article earlier this week that pharmacists save lives, and was asked on this very page to back up my claim. This article is for the GP w...
I knew I wanted to make a change, but this time it had to be permanent, I was well and truly fed up with losing weight just to gain it back a few weeks later. Of course, I wanted to have more confidence and enjoy playing with my children, plus I knew that being miserable about the way I looked meant that I wasn't that much fun to be around.
