Menopause is big news. Here at Top Santé we’ve been consistently covering this important life stage since 2017, looking at holistic and lifestyle interventions to help manage the fluctuation of hormones and accompanying symptoms. From essential oils and herbal supplements, to nutrition, exercise and mindset hacks – we’ve covered all bases and will continue to do so, supporting women age 40 and up. The documentary Davina McCall: Sex, Myths and The Menopause on Channel 4 back in May really helped push this important topic to the top of the health agenda – it’s even been debated recently in Parliament. Undoubtedly, the documentary was an important step forward in terms of discussion and has prompted thousands of women to seek help. However, it was heavily focused on HRT and there are myriad…

RISE AND SHINE! The slide into autumn can see many people’s moods plummet. Happily, a new, all-natural way to curb your risk of depression has just been identified – and anyone can do it! Waking up just one hour earlier can lower your risk of major depression by 23 per cent, according to researchers from the US, who conducted a massive study of 840,000 people. The recent wave of people working from home may mean that many are rising later than ever, but this study provides strong evidence that it may be doing more harm than good. Just to be clear, this isn’t about missing sleep, but shifting your sleep cycle to an hour earlier, including going to bed, so that your sleep ‘midpoint’ (halfway between bedtime and waking) is an…

coffee can’t undo a bad night

When you’ve had an interrupted night’s sleep, it’s all too easy to turn to caffeine to help you function the following day. But US scientists have found that, when it comes to cognition, your coffee will only get you so far. They studied 275 participants, who were asked to complete tasks after a period of sleep deprivation. Those who had coffee beforehand were better able to complete a simple task than those who’d had none, but while caffeine helped them attend to tasks, it didn’t help prevent procedural errors. The bottom line: don’t take on any crucial tasks after a bad night’s shut-eye. 23%…of women have faked an illness to take time off work for period pain or PMDD*.…

park life

Lockdown forced many people to explore their own neighbourhoods, taking on a newfound appreciation for local green spaces. It’s perhaps not surprising, therefore, that US scientists have found that parks were ‘essential’ during the pandemic, in a study examining 22 parks across New York and Philadelphia. Not only that, but they’ve shown that despite increased foot traffic, parks didn’t increase the spread of Covid-19. Here’s hoping that city planners take note: people love parks! ‘It is never too late to be what you might have been.’George Eliot…

hate loud chewers? help is at hand

Does the sound of chewing drive you mad? If so, you may have misophonia, which is a ‘hatred of sound’, leaving people sensitive to loud breathing, pen clicking and other noises. A Newcastle University study has pinpointed why seemingly innocuous sounds drive some people up the wall and it’s down to a supersensitive brain connection. Researchers found an increased connectivity between the auditory cortex and the motor control areas related to the face, mouth and throat in people with misophonia (15 per cent of adults). They also suggest that, while it seems counterintuitive, people with the condition can lessen symptoms by mimicking the action generating the trigger sound as it gives back a sense of control.…
