A Raw Deal?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 18, 2018 12:00 pm

 
The latest trend that seems to be gathering attention in 2018 is the craze for drinking so-called “raw water.”

Raw Water is not necessarily pure water.

When a small, Oregan-based start-up company called Live Water started selling “pristine mountain spring water” to people in the San Francisco area, they tapped into the fashionable notion that the more “natural” something is, then the better for you it will be.

What is “Raw Water”?

Raw water is, quite simply, water that springs from the earth; or in this particular case, from “an ancient aquifer.” It is completely untreated and unfiltered.

Live Water – one of several companies selling raw water around the country – says that filtering and treating water to

Your New Year Fitness Plan Starts Here!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 11, 2018 12:00 pm

 
Let’s start by saying that if you already pull on your running shoes as soon as the alarm goes off, or if you cycle to your Bodypump class three times a week, you can safely skip this blog and go and enjoy a chilled glass of Tyent water and pat yourself on the back!

We’ve all got to start somewhere.

However, if, like many of us, your sports gear has gathered a little dust lately, and your gym subscription is starting to feel more like a charitable donation you make every month, then maybe you could use a little motivation to improve your fitness levels in 2018!

Which Important Resolution Should You Make This Year?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 4, 2018 12:00 pm

 
It’s that time of year again!  The tinsel is packed away, the present buying frenzy is but a distant memory and our thoughts turn to New Year resolutions.

How many of us feel like exactly like this, post-Christmas?
What Do You Want to Change?

It’s easy to be blasé about making resolutions, and lots of people don’t bother on the basis that if we want to change something, then we should get on and do it, instead of waiting for the “right” date in the calendar.

But that’s ignoring the special lure of resolution making.  If you want to change something in your life and stick to it, then New Year is the perfect opportunity.  New broom, clean room, …

Happy New Year – Guaranteed!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 2, 2018 7:00 am

 
Before Christmas, one of my young nephews was desperate (in the way that only a 7 year old boy at Christmas can be) for a particular toy.  

We hope you survived Christmas better than this!
Thanks Santa!

A large number of painstakingly written letters and notes to Father Christmas that politely requested this small, brightly colored object were posted and stuffed up the chimney.  On Christmas morning, amid shouts and whoops of happiness, came the most ecstatic one, as my nephew finally opened the toy of his dreams.

Well, That Didn’t Last Long…

There followed around 30 minutes of frenzied, joyful play before one part of the precious toy became detached from the other, in a way that wasn’t

Why Your Dentist Dreads Christmas!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On December 29, 2017 12:00 pm

 
Okay, maybe not dreads Christmas.  But dentists are hyper aware of the damage that sweet things such as candy and soda do to our teeth.  

Therefore Christmas, arriving as it does, on a fresh wave of sweetness in the wake of that great testament to candy itself, Halloween, poses all kinds of threats to our teeth unless we take extra good care of them.

This is the stuff of nightmares for your dentist!
The Usual Suspects

As well as sugar, many people often consume more alcohol than usual around the holidays.  Alcohol attacks teeth in two ways: firstly with the sugar it contains and secondly with acid, which damages enamel.  

So you clean your teeth and visit your

Are the Holidays Stealing Your Energy?  

Posted by: Rhona Reid On December 26, 2017 6:06 pm

 
Forget The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.  This is far more serious, (and erm… real). The Christmas That Stole Your Energy needs fixing, and fast!

Have the holidays stolen your sparkle?
Partied Too Hearty?

It’s all too easy to run out of energy over the holidays.  Social engagements, parties, excited kids (everywhere, more every time you look up, it seems), rich food and maybe a few glasses of wine more than you usually drink?  It’s hard work having fun!   

All of these things are energy thieves.  And when you’re tired, it’s pretty easy to just throw yourself into the nearest armchair and watch It’s a Wonderful Life again/snooze it off/wait for the kids to grow up.

Tempting, but if you
