Why Do I Do Yoga?

with Michelle Alistoun

This photo was taken many years ago at I time that I enjoyed practicing yoga because it felt good.  

Fast forward a couple of decades and I’m still doing it but not because it feels good.  Quite honestly, some days I don’t like it at all.

The Road to Recovery Post Hysterectomy

with Bec McLean, Pilates & Spin Tribe Instructor at Bodytree

In October last year I was faced with the terrifying prospect of needing a total hysterectomy and some repair work done. This was not something I had ever considered needing and so it took some time to come to terms with the information and the procedure itself. I underwent surgery in November. The surgery was a success and now that I am well on the way to recovering fully, I want to share my story with you in case you are about to undergo a similar procedure, have already done so and are now recovering from surgery, or are thinking about the best approach to resuming exercise following childbirth.

Gut Health and Beyond

Dr Nas Al-Jafari, Family Medicine Consultant and Functional Medicine Practitioner at Intercare Wellness

Following on from the Bodytree Breakfast Club this month, and given the resounding interest in Gut Health, I thought it only natural to share my thoughts for those of you who missed out.

The Gut Microbiome is one of the most fascinating and few remaining health mysteries. As it turns out, rather than living in parallel, our microbiome lives symbiotically and operates almost synonymously with us i.e. they are us.

Probiotics – Everything you need to know!

with Suzan Terzian, Certified Nutritionist, Health & Wellness Consultant

Everyone is curious about probiotics, so I thought I would shed some light on what this health trend is all about. Probiotics are simply the good bacteria in your body, mainly in your gut. Nicknames for probiotics include gut bacteria, gastrointestinal flora, microbiome, micro biotic health, gut flora and friendly bugs.

We tend to think of our gut in terms of food digestion only, but there is so much more to this amazing organ than that. So much of our immunity resides in our gut, which is the first line of defense for our bodies from any harmful bacteria that may want to invade it. So in order to be healthy and have more healthy bacteria, we must create a thriving environment for them to live, and that environment is greatly affected by our diet and lifestyle habits. An imbalance in this ecosystem within us allows the ‘bad guys’(pathogens) to overpower the ‘good guys’, (healthy microflora). There are numerous studies going on right now that are looking at the role of probiotics in weight loss, prevention of respiratory infections, dental carries in kids, and as one method of treatment for inflammatory or autoimmune disorders. It’s obvious to see that the health of our gut is such an essential component to our overall health and wellbeing.
