The Importance of Bacteria

Glynis Barber Health Leave a Comment

Bacteria have been on this earth longer than humans and were indeed one of the first life forms on the planet. They are very resilient and have even been known to flourish on manned spacecraft. We tend to think of them as gross, dirty and bad.  Some, indeed, are very dangerous but others are vital to our survival and to …

Since the launch of this site just over a year ago, I have posted close to 100 articles. Phew! Not a week has gone by without one and for the first few months there were 2 articles a week. We have covered so many different subjects ranging from the benefits of turmeric to hair loss to the pros and cons …

Keeping the Weight off over Christmas

Glynis Barber Health Leave a Comment

It’s just inevitable isn’t it? Days of overeating, drinking, slouching on the sofa, TV watching marathons and the pounds piling on. Lovely to let go like that for a week or so but not great to start the new year feeling bloated and in need of a diet. Probably the number one New Years’ resolution is to start a diet. …

There’s no escaping it. Sooner or later we ladies get mugged by our hormones.

Glynis Barber Health Leave a Comment

Colds and flu may be common place but they are a real pain in the neck…and the nose, throat and head!

Not quite ill enough to be in bed, but hard to work properly or enjoy …

Wholistic Dermatolgy – From Health Comes Beauty

Glynis Barber Health Leave a Comment

About 7 years ago a friend sent me to see a friend of hers who had just opened a skin clinic in Los Angeles. The incentive to go was that apparently she was setting out to get great results by using as natural methods as possible. And so I met Dr. Julia Hunter for the first time. There was an …

The Science of Staying Younger

Glynis Barber Health Leave a Comment

Is staying younger really possible? Is it all just a desperate and ultimately futile attempt to hold back the years? Ageing chronologically is inevitable, but being “old” I believe is something we can most definitely do something about. Being older can be very positive. With age comes experience, wisdom, confidence and less agonising (hopefully) over the little stuff, caring less …
