Blog by Sally Baker – author of ‘The Getting of Resillience from the Inside Out’. The Getting of Resilience from the Inside Out – disclosing my own story My work as a therapist frequently involves disclosure. It’s not mine, though; it’s my clients sharing how they feel about what has happened to them and me bearing witness to their truth. I’ve been around disclosure for so long that I mistakenly thought I was good at it. I am good at it when it comes to bearing witness, but I’m resistant to disclosing my own story, and no one has been more surprised to discover this than me. My resistance fee ..read more

How people with cancer can feel better by marching through March By Caroline Garrit It has been proven, irrefutably, that if people are able to be active after a cancer diagnosis then we are more likely to have better outcomes.

For those living with cancer, exercise can help slow its progression. There are no guarantees, of course, but exercising is one thing that we can do for ourselves, that we can take control of, and that ..read more

However, it does not uncover the full neuropathological damage to these young brains. Shocking though this is to acknowledge, these drinks are degrading human cognition at breakneck speed. Damage caused by consuming high levels of refined sugar As I explain in much more detail in my recent book, Honey Sapiens, high levels of glucose in the human circulation actually starve the brain of ..read more

Frances Ive – Author of One Step Ahead of Osteoarthritis For several years I have not been able to get up easily if I am bending down to a low cupboard to get something out, have a look or to clean it. In yoga I have avoided doing squats that hurt my knees. So, when I was asked to show the NHS physiotherapist some squats, I winced.  Then he suggested I did them daily to help ease my knees. It’s not always the arthritis in the knees that hurts, it’s often the tightness in and around them. By regular exercise, in this case, squatting, we can protect the knees by building up strength in the ..read more
