For others, it is yet another frustrating reminder that work-life balance is not within reach for them. If you feel that you end up in the second category more than the first, here are five tips […]

Are vitamins and supplements overrated?

Ever thought or heard this before? “Your body doesn’t absorb extra vitamins. All you get from taking vitamin supplements is expensive urine.” Supplements such as vitamins, minerals, or herbs are intended to complete, enhance or add further nutritional value to the diet. In 10 Years Younger in 10 weeks, Thorbjörg proposes a laundry list of supplements for the detox segment […]

Coffee. The origins of this tantalisingly dark, rich, chocolate or citrus flavoured bean date far back in history. Still popular today, this aromatic and caffeinated beverage has been praised and condemned among various communities for its uses, production, and influence on the body. Yet, if it is so bad for you, why is it still so popular? While many I meet within yoga and […]

A Cave Man (Paleo) Solution to Health Problems

Behind the fad: Why Gluten Free?

Back in 2009, a holistic doctor recommended one of my best friends go gluten free because she was experiencing a lot of discomfort after meals, bloating, and painfully stiff muscles.

Achieving Your Beach Body With a Home Gym

Summer is practically pounding down my door. My sandals, shorts, and bikinis are imploring to emerge from the dark recesses of my drawers.

You shouldn’t hide under a big t-shirt when […]
