Health & Happiness



Did you know you had two brains?

Yes, you did read that correctly, and I’m not talking some alien type image of a man with two brains!

I’m talking about your gut, that little place where all your food goes.  Your gut is central to all your body systems, and how healthy it is, and if it’s in balance can play a dramatic part in how we feel and how we react to stress.healthy-gut-stomach-119188512

Remember that feeling you get when you go for an interview, waiting to go into an exam or even the dentist? How about that similar feeling you get when something doesn’t feel right, or your anxious about something you’ve done?

You’ve probably heard the phrases “I’ve got the collywobbles” or “I’m listening to my gut instinct”?

We’ve all experienced some of these, right?  Well, these are great simple examples of the brain-gut connection.

A healthy gut environment is key to good mental health, and helps with our recovery from stresses once they’ve gone.

So what prompted me to share this with you? Well, if you’ve read about me, you’ll understand the journey I have been on to be where I am today.  My gut had been compromised with IBS, Candida etc, and with changing what I ate I healed my gut and felt amazing. The trouble is as you’re learning now, reading this, how you feel has a huge impact on how your gut feels. So when I went through the dark period of stress & depression, even though I was eating well, my gut was being compromised by the effects of the stress hormone cortisol.

Here’s the admission (takes a deep breath)! My emotional state also clouded my thinking, and whilst I thought I was lucky having the knowledge I have, as I was eating well during this time, my mind forgot to remind me that stress can impact the balance of your gut regardless.

What was my tell tale? My skin!Brain_Skin_Gut-600x618

Your skin is a great place to analyse what’s going on inside, and I started suffering from rosacea acne, and flare ups got worse as I had a particularly stress induced emotional day.

So, I started to focus on healing my gut – you’d think just by eating healthily, this would cure it, but there’s a lot more to it than that.  Basically, when your gut is compromised it causes a state called “Leaky Gut”, this can cause a lowered immunity, enable bacteria to enter the bloodstream, and for absorption of vitamins & minerals to decrease.

Action plan in place, here’s what I decided to focus on. There is many conflicting information out there, but after lots of research I decided, these were for me:-

1. Removing foods and factors that damage the gut

– luckily for me I already don’t have gluten, dairy or processed sugar in my diet

– so in addition, omitting high sugar fruits, yeast, caffeine & alcohol (thankfully I have minimal consumption of these two anyway)

2. Eat more healing foods, including prebiotic rich foods to encourage good bacteria

– luckily I love and eat a lot of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, and am a huge garlic fan!Cruciferous vegetables

– Kefir and fermented products

– Coconut products

3. Repair the gut with supplements

I did a more research into this, and for me I decided to give this a try: –

– L-glutamine – this is an essential amino acid that is also an anti-inflammatory, and great for growth and repair of the gut lining

4. Put more beneficial probiotics in to my body

– I take a probiotic supplement daily anyway, and sometimes it’s good to change the strain, so I changed mine

My journey with healing is still ongoing, but my skin already looks so much better.  Time to heal depends on how long your gut has been compromised, but mine is so much better already :-)

Have a wonderful healthy week














September arrives…

As I sit here writing this I can’t believe it’s the end of the summer holidays, especially since the weather is so glorious at the moment.

September often means a change of routine – going back to, or starting school, going back to work or just preparing for the Autumn ahead.

Now is therefore the perfect time to try something new (just like I did over the summer with body boarding for the first time – I’m hooked and love the surf! Quite chuffed too that my wetsuit is Nourish purple!!).  Why not add a little health boost into your day? Small steps can all add up to a big difference in time…Nourish wetsuit



Here’s a couple you could try: –

Drink a glass of water immediately after waking – your body becomes dehydrated whilst you sleep, so the sooner you can rehydrate the better. Even better, try some warm water with a slice of lemon & grated ginger – this will not only hydrate you, but also alkalise your body and kick start your metabolism for the day ahead.

Eat a decent breakfast – we are often in a rush in the mornings, but eating first thing will not only help your metabolism but will also provide you with energy, and avoiding you reaching for the biscuits before lunchtime. A good mix of slow release carbohydrates, healthy fats and protein will really give your energy levels a boost.

Healthy ideas include eggs, wholegrain, rye or home made gluten free nut & seed toast (recipe coming soon), avocado, salmon, nuts, seeds, healthy smoothies (sign up to my newsletter to receive a delicious recipe).

For now I’m sharing with you my Healthy Granola recipe, which is packed full of energy giving vitamins & minerals, alongside slow release carbs, healthy fats & protein and is also free of sugar.

I hope you enjoy!

Have a lovely day




Feeling the love!

Porthcurnick beach near Portscatho, Cornwall

Wow! I’m sitting here typing my first blog to all you lovely people, totally feeling the love since my website launched!

Many of you who have followed me on Facebook for a while, will know how passionate I am about what I do, and what an amazing journey I’ve had so far getting here.  My website needed to be an extension of me, and what I’ve already created, hence the time it took with my gorgeous friend Belinda to put it all together.

I was so excited when we agreed to push the “live” button, and I have so many amazing things to share with you.

As a typical mum though, juggling having recently moved house, and it being the school holidays, I’ve been dying to get in front of my laptop, but boxes needed unpacking, and trips to the beach have kept me rather occupied!

This is the start though, and I can’t wait to indulge you more….

Don’t forget to sign up to my newsletter, and thank you for finding me.

Have a lovely weekend!

Love Amanda x
