Glynis Barber Health 0 Comments

I know it’s only September and winter viruses seem a long way off but these days they can strike at any time. The illness I talk about below in my article for Natural Health magazine struck in early summer when I least expected it. I always wonder whether to exercise or not whenever I’m under the weather, which thankfully isn’t …

Get back in sync

Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition, Health 1 Comment

The In-Sync Diet may seem like a regular diet book, but that’s actually not the case. There’s so much more to a healthy weight and a healthy body and mind, than what we eat. Our bodies are made up of incredibly complex systems and they are all connected. If one part is out of sync, it affects all the other …

A New Take on Bone health

Glynis Barber Health, Supplements 10 Comments

Osteoporosis is a real risk for most women and can have profound and debilitating effects. We’ve always been told to take calcium supplements as a preventative measure but it turns out it’s not quite as simple as that. In fact just taking calcium on it’s own can have an adverse effect.

How to get a Mid-Winter Glow

Glynis Barber Health, Skincare 4 Comments

I have to confess that I find January to March the toughest time of the year. The winter is a long gloomy one here in the UK and it’s really hard to stay upbeat, energetic and glowing with health. It’s very tempting to stay home in baggy pants and eat comfort food. And yes, I’m just like everyone else when …

They say that men are the worst patients, but I have to admit that in my house, it’s me. My son is positively stoical and my husband, happy as he is to grab sympathy wherever he can get it, is pretty matter of fact when ill. I, on the other hand, literally think I’m going to die at the first …
