While exercise, a healthy diet and adequate sleep are all imperative for maintaining a healthy weight, evidence has now revealed a new player in the weight game – your gut bacteria! This collection of 37 trillion organisms (mainly bacteria) within your digestive tract is known as your microbiome, and strongly dictates how your body regulates and maintains its weight. A healthy microbiome for a happy waistline? Fascinating!
Does your dog send you into a sneezing frenzy? Do certain foods leave you bloated and headachy? Or do pollens and certain grasses leave your skin desperately itchy? If you answered yes, then you know this is a daily reality for you and the millions of people living with allergic conditions such as hay fever , asthma, food allergies and eczema.
Are you feeling sluggish, hormonal or overweight? Do you frequently experience digestive symptoms such as constipation, wind or bloating, or are you in pain? A detox may just be the answer! Supporting detoxification can not only help increase your energy, but also improve digestion, aid weight loss, reduce pain, balance hormones and support a healthy mood.
No-one is a stranger to stress. A little stress is healthy; it challenges you and makes you stronger. The body’s stress response is designed to help you survive stressful situations. Historically, stress looked a bit different, particularly if you were a caveman confronted with a sabre-toothed tiger!
Stress is a natural, evolutionary body response. You will instinctively react to stress in life with a fight, flight or freeze type reaction. It may be an acute stressful event such as an exam or public speaking, or it may be the ongoing challenge of raising kids, the daily commute, or financial pressures.

Most people today are living extremely stressful, busy lives, so it is normal to feel tired sometimes.
This tiredness generally resolves itself after some rest and relaxation. Increasingly though, persistent tiredness is becoming a major problem for many people.
Fatigue is a common presenting complaint in the majority of Australians and New Zealanders, but it is also often misunderstood, and at times even dismissed, particularly if there is no easily identifiable cause.
