General Health

It is not is increasingly difficult to ignore the calls for the population at large to increase the time and effort it spends on taking care of our health. From exercise to diet constant reminders surround us.


We do not wish to ram this down your throat, however we have to confirm that any condition will be improved by care and consideration being given to your overall health.


Our main approach is to reduce the strain on the digestive system, and one of the ways to do that is through good health and diet.  Excessive fats and sugars in the diet play havoc with digestion and the overall body function.  Sugar in particular has a massive effect on the digestive system, and of course can lead to diabetes later in life.

Good News ?

So that’s the bad news, what is the good news.    A healthy diet and lifestyle no longer represents the pitiful life of abstinence of the past.  Due to the nature of the global health issue, there are ever increasingly pleasurable ways of enjoying our diet and exercise.  The below you tube clip may be aimed at children, however it makes many salient points regarding the health issue.


The constant hectoring over health has made many close their ears to the issue, far to often the message is given in patronizing tones.  We mention it solely on relation to IBS.  The many sufferers we have consulted during the building of this website all concluded for themselves that taking care with regard to their health was one of the most significant steps forward.



For IBS sufferers it may be hard to follow the traditional dietary guidelines, particularly in regards to fruit.  We recommend that you do try and follow the guidelines as closely as you can. Many faddish diets have come and gone, however traditional dietary advice has barely changed.


If you are serious about improving the quality of your life then taking your health seriously must come into the equation, we will in the future be adding more on this subject and specific ways of achieving health orientated goals.

So, when it comes to eating healthy, it's just doing the right thing. And it's not something you have to do 365 days a year, but I think it's something you have to do 25 days a month. Let's put it that way.
