    Health Matters with Alison Cowell. Episode 4: Diabetes

    Health Matters with Alison Cowell. Episode 4: Diabetes

    With Alzheimer’s disease now being referred to as Type 3 diabetes, how do you know if the sugars in your food are working for or against you?

    Type 2 diabetes doesn’t just suddenly happen, it’s a long time coming. Yet many people ae taken by surprise when they receive a diagnosis in a routine health check.

    Over recent years, we’ve been encouraged to cut our all obvious sugars from our diets. But not all sugars are equal! Could you be depriving yourself of valuable energy-producing and hormone-regulating sugars?

    You don’t need to be diabetic to listen in, because in the fourth of this series on handy health tips from me, leading holistic nutritionist, Alison Cowell, I’ll take you through the different types of sugars in our foods (the good , the bad and the ugly!), help you understand what to look for on labels and  how you can take control of your health now, preventing (and even reversing) type 2 diabetes.

    Health Matters with Alison Cowell. Episode 3: Food Intolerances

    Health Matters with Alison Cowell. Episode 3: Food Intolerances

    Hello again and welcome to the third in this series of handy health tips from me, leading holistic nutritionist, Alison Cowell.

    Today I'm focusing on food intolerances.

    What’s the difference between food intolerance and food allergy?

    How do you know if you have a food intolerance?

    How can a food intolerance affect your life?

    Food intolerances often go undiagnosed because people are unaware they have them. I was such a person! For many years I suffered with  ‘IBS’ but eventually discovered that I had ulcerative colitis which was exacerbated by food intolerances. My enemies turned out to be eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms.

    I meet many clients who suspect they have intolerances and who go on to  eliminate gluten and/or dairy, only to be disappointed as their symptoms persisted. Whilst gluten and dairy are amongst the top 6 foods to be intolerant to, as you’ll discover in this show, you can be intolerant to absolutely anything you eat, no matter how healthy or organic it may be!

    Health Matters with Alison Cowell. Episode 2: Depression

    Health Matters with Alison Cowell. Episode 2: Depression

    Hi everyone, welcome to the second in this informative series of handy health tips from me,  leading holistic nutritionist, Alison Cowell.

    How could improving your digestive health improve your mood?

    What have food intolerances got to do with panic attacks and anxiety?

    Could your medications for other conditions be causing depression and insomnia?

    The answers to all these questions, and more, are in this episode which looks at depression and anxiety . 

    The invaluable role of eating the correct food and supporting healthy gut bacteria can often negate the need for anti-depressants.  This is all due to the ‘gut-brain axis’ , the fascinating communication loop between our two ‘brains’. 

    I have been privileged to help  many clients with depression, insomnia, panic attacks and other mood and behavioural disorders, including children with ADHD, and it’s one of the many wonderful rewards of doing this job
