The latest trend that seems to be gathering attention in 2018 is the craze for drinking so-called “raw 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 â€“ one of several companies selling raw water around the country – says that filtering and treating water to …

Letâ€™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!
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!
Itâ€™s hereâ€¦that time of year when we look to our less healthy habits and try to quit them, or at least improve them where possible!
Letâ€™s Get This Detox Started!
One popular way of kick-starting a new, healthy approach is by detoxing. For some, detoxing is giving up one or two things â€“ alcohol for example â€“ and for others, itâ€™s about cleansing your system and heading into the New Year feeling refreshed and healthier.
While a few people favor an extreme approach to detoxing, for most of us, thatâ€™s not practical or desirable. Â Â Much more realistic is our simple, 3-point version that will enable you to …
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. Â
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. Â 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 Didnâ€™t Last Longâ€¦
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 wasnâ€™t …

Okay, maybe not dreads Christmas. Â But dentists are hyper aware of the damage that sweet things such as candy and soda do to our teeth. Â
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.
The Usual Suspects
As well as sugar, many people often consume more alcohol than usual around the holidays. Â Alcohol attacks teeth in two ways: firstly with the sugar it contains and secondly with acid, which damages enamel. Â

Forget The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. Â This is far more serious, (and ermâ€¦ real). The Christmas That Stole Your Energy needs fixing, and fast!
Partied Too Hearty?
Itâ€™s all too easy to run out of energy over the holidays. Â 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? Â Itâ€™s hard work having fun! Â Â
All of these things are energy thieves. Â And when youâ€™re tired, itâ€™s prettyÂ easy to just throw yourself into the nearest armchair and watch Itâ€™s a Wonderful Life again/snooze it off/wait for the kids to grow up.

Detox is for January.Â We will reach those cold, post-Christmas days soon enough.Â Our glittery Christmas dress hung away, its sparkle dimmed at the back of the closet and the freezer filled with little vacuum packs of turkey.
