There’s been a lot in the press about obesity, including Government advice for us to reduce our weight if necessary. While this has mainly been in the context of Covid-19 – being overweight has been linked to having worse symptoms of the virus – losing weight where needed is also beneficial for preventing so many other lifestyle diseases. At Top Santé we believe that while it’s absolutely crucial to practise positive self-talk and to generate good vibes towards ourselves and others, at the same time we can recognise that being obese can and does put us at greater risk of illness, if not now then in the future. While we embrace having a positive attitude towards our bodies, whatever their shape or size, we also recognise that too much body…

HAPPINESS = HEALTH It can feel as if health brings happiness, but new research suggests that the reverse is also true – feeling upbeat could have a direct impact on your physical health. The study, published in the journal Psychological Science, shows that a psychology programme designed to boost participants’ emotional wellbeing had a knock-on effect when it came to their health, too. They reported fewer sick days for three months after the programme than those in a control group. All the more reason to start that gratitude journal today! TWO WAYS TO COMBAT AIR POLLUTION Eating more than two servings of fish a week and taking regular exercise can reduce the effects of air pollution, one of which is the risk of high blood pressure. The American Academy of Neurology says that…

weight to go!

A MULTIVITAMIN / MINERAL Vitamins and minerals are required for nearly all metabolic and developmental processes. The ones I recommend have a multivitamin / mineral blend featuring activated vitamins, including folate as 5-MTHF (5-methyltetrahydrofolate), and Albion chelated mineral complexes, because these are well absorbed. I also recommend a supplement that includes bioavailable B vitamins. Recent evidence suggests that dietary intake of B vitamins, including B6, B9, and B12, helps regulate cortisol, which in excess drives the body to store fat, as well as creating other metabolic havoc. The B vitamins do their job by supporting the function of your adrenal glands, which secrete cortisol and other stress hormones. B vitamins can be stolen away by adrenal stress and high cortisol levels. Found in animal foods, vitamin B12 is particularly vulnerable. A deficiency can…

covid’s covert health cost

IF YOU’VE BEEN LAID LOW by coronavirus, you’ll know what a relief it is to come out the other side and feel better. But for some people, symptoms seem to linger much longer than a couple of weeks. According to the World Health Organisation, the majority of people – 80 per cent – develop a mild to moderate Covid-19 infection. A mild case usually clears within two weeks, with effects ranging from asymptomatic to the type of symptoms experienced in a heavy dose of flu. But evidence is emerging that even a mild dose of the virus has a sting in its tail for some. Sufferers can be left incapacitated by fatigue and unable to function normally for many months. Social media support groups are springing up with thousands of members reporting…
