A holistic approach to hypothyroidismSeveral women came to me last month with hypothyroidism, or low thyroid function. All had different symptoms, but had one thing in common: they had all been diagnosed with something else.

If you have battled with weight gain, low energy, fluid retention, depression, anxiety, menstrual/fertility or digestive problems at any point in your life – and have been told your thyroid tests are ‘normal’ – read on.

Ana at her hair studio in LagosThis is a story of my hairstylist Ana, Vidal Sassoon trained and a former backstage hairstylist with TONI&GUY. She is the best hairdresser I have known so far: perfection and beauty is her signature in her work.

Ana Mamic-Langley, originally from Zagreb, fell in love with an English guy. Their love soon culminated into their marriage and she bore a beautiful child, a boy named Jyoti Prem, which means a “flame of love” in Sanskrit. The arrival of the baby brought a lot of joy to the sweet home of Ana, and she was on top of the clouds.
However, Ana’s dream life of having a happy family with a loving husband and her little baby had started to fade when the harsh reality of life was setting in. During her maternity leave, from her well-paid job in a prestigious salon where the cost of a haircut was from 70 pounds onwards, she had used up her savings and the financial strain started to take away the happiness of her sweet home. Her husband’s attitude towards work was poor and it always cost him his job quickly, so mostly he was busy “searching” a new one. He anyway looked only for small jobs, for being unqualified.

PoppyEveryone seems to be talking about a 'new' digestive condition called SIBO, or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.

This difficult disorder is now thought to be the underlying cause of up to 75% of cases of  irritable bowel syndrome, (IBS) which affects up to one in five people in the UK.

This article will explain exactly what SIBO is, how to test for it and how herbalists treat it using diet, herbs and supplements.

If you’re one of those people with IBS who’ve “tried everything” with no luck, read on...

PoppyBefore reading this article, close your eyes and take a few slow, deep breaths. Feel a little calmer? You’ve just tapped into your Vagus nerve.

The Vagus or ‘wandering’ nerve starts in the brainstem, just behind the ears, and travels down the neck and all through the chest and abdomen, connecting the brain with the lungs, heart, spleen, gut, kidneys and reproductive organs.

What Disorders Do Chiropractors Treat?As you may know, Doctors of Chiropractic diagnose and treat many different spinal disorders that cause musculoskeletal or nerve pain. When you make that first appointment, your chiropractor will perform a physical and neurological examination as part of the process of making an accurate diagnosis.

At Lagos Health Chiropractic, for example, we’ll check your reflexes, your muscles, your movement, your posture and your blood pressure. We’ll also go through a comprehensive health questionnaire to make sure we know as much about you as we can before we start treatment. Then we set to work to make your pain go away and give you more mobility.
