I need a hug

There is nothing like it is there? The warm embrace of someone’s arms, squeezing you tight, a little hit of oxytocin, a drop in cortisol, a dab of serotonin, ahhhhhhhh (Floyd is but a little monkey in this photo from 4 years ago) And frankly at the moment we could all use it. One intelligent […]

Reclaim your integrity

If you look at the history of any healing profession, you will see outright hostility from others to protect their territory. Chiropractors were put in jail, and yet we survived and indeed thrived. The reason we survived, in my opinion, is because of one thing…..results. You can sell a theory, but at some point, you […]

Why we fight: Status & belonging

Only three more weeks then……..arghhhhhhhhhhhh Deep down I knew it was coming but I didn’t want to admit it, now it is here I had a burst of anger followed by a wave of emotion somewhere between disappointment and irritation. Disappointment and irritation for many reasons, but especially because it means at least another three […]

Get arrested naked & proud

Well, it is another week on lockdown, but at least the sun is shining. In fact, I had a lovely chat with the Lions of Chiropractic on Wednesday about why sunshine really could be the best medicine, for anyone with pain, or fatigue or mental health issues. And dare I say, it might even boost […]

Weirdness and grief

Last week, my wife and I were on the beach, it was a beautiful sunny day, we were with our children and I tell her I just feel….”weird”, I couldn’t explain it any better than that, just a bit weird. And she says something profound, ”the discomfort you are feeling is grief”…….and I say ”ohhhh”. Suddenly it all […]

The unbelievable truth

Three weeks ago I was writing funny, pithy newsletters about the coronavirus (rebranded to COVID-19 to sound more technical and scary, it is actually a member of the SARS group, so it should be SARS-CoV-2, so there). Well, I am not laughing now, am I? The whole thing still seems unreal. There are lots of comparisons […]

An intense time to be alive

They say 24 hour is a long time in politics, but in the modern world of viral pandemics, it is even longer. The rapid shifts in government policy are unsettling, personally and economically. The current media onslaught on terms such as “deadly virus” and “killer disease” is fear-mongering and spreading panic which way more contagious than any virus. Pictures […]

The anti-viral edition

These are strange times and it’s hard to hear true signal in all the noise from the hysterical media. From what is currently being said it looks like in the UK we are trying to slow the spread to allow the healthcare system to deal with vulnerable adults affected at a manageable rate. But it is […]

I will always love you….

is my favourite song by Whitney Houston, rest in peace Whitney, you never should have married Bobby Brown. Did you see what I did there? I gave you a juicy outrageous headline to get your attention, to make you interested, but it was really just bait to get you into my nutritional, ranting lair of searing […]

The omega 3 fugazi

In a world of dietary extremes, from fashionable (and virtue signalling) veganism to the carnivore meat only fad (it’s an extreme elimination diet FYI), there is one tried and tested diet that is always worth using as a template for your nutrient intake: The Mediterranean diet. It is a nutrient dense, whole food, sustainable and […]
