Attention Golfers!

Do you have a golf-related injury? John can help!

25% of all golf injuries involve the lower back, which is hardly surprising when the forces generated into your lower back on impact of the ball are equal to 8 times your body weight!

You don’t want any injury, but especially a lower back injury, stop you from playing and enjoying golf, which is where I come in, as I can help at 2 levels;
1. Optimistically, preventing the injury from occurring, and
2. Treating the injury should you have the misfortune to receive one.

In 2017, I completed my Golf Bio Mechanics Certification with the Titleist Performance Institute in the UK. I learned how to assess your flexibility, strength and balance in areas that have direct relevance to golf. And, by improving your capabilities in these areas, not only do you reduce your chance of injury, but you’ll improve your game as well.

This assessment process takes 45 minutes, including my advice and remedies to some of the issues you may have.

Vitamin D for Baby’s Development

Pregnancy is often described as a ‘window of opportunity.’ As a mother, being in the best of health before and during pregnancy can help influence critical stages of your baby’s development and help create a happy and healthy child. One of these key opportunities is ensuring that you have adequate vitamin D levels to pass onto your child.

It is important for mums to have good vitamin D levels in pregnancy, as low prenatal vitamin D levels have been linked to many childhood challenges, such as asthma and allergies, as well as autism, behavioural issues and metabolic effects. On the bright side, adequate vitamin D levels have been found to benefit your child in many ways, improving health and development.< /br>

 

Why Vitamin D?

1. Better Brains and Behaviour
Vitamin D is essential for protecting your child’s brain and nervous system, and will assist with learning and behaviour. Low levels have been linked to developmental delays and autism. Interestingly, research has shown that babies conceived during winter are more likely to develop autism than those conceived in summer. This is thought to be due to mum having less exposure to sunlight and consequently, lower vitamin D levels in the colder, darker months. Boost your vitamin D levels to boost your child’s potential!

2. Boost Your Baby’s Immune System
Prenatal vitamin D deficiency can compromise your little one’s immune system, contributing to asthma, allergies and poor immunity. Even when your baby is in utero, vitamin D plays an important role in helping the lungs develop. Throughout childhood, vitamin D also helps to regulate the immune system, to help you have healthier, happier kids.

3. Lower Your Baby’s Risk of Cardiovascular Disease 
A low vitamin D status through pregnancy has also been linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes for the child in later life, possibly linked to factors such as obesity and poor blood glucose control. Protect your child’s heart and metabolic health by looking after your own D levels in pregnancy.

Guidelines for Optimal Vitamin D Levels

The following tips can help pregnant mothers maintain optimal vitamin D levels:

  • Aim for 6 to 7 minutes of sun exposure mid-morning or mid-afternoon during warmer months, and 7 to 40 minutes at noon during winter; ideally arms and shoulders should be visible and free of sunscreen.
  • If you are low in vitamin D (and/or you wish to avoid the sun), your Practitioner may recommend vitamin D to quickly and safely build up your vitamin D stores.
If your Practitioner recommends additional Vitamin D, check out Metagenics’s range here

Acid Reflux Relief

Excerpt from Baseline of Health Foundation

Changing Your Diet’s Better Than Drugs for Acid Reflux

If you’ve got acid reflux, you may come to dread the time of night when you are a couple of hours past eating dinner—that feeling of pain that arises in your chest or throat, sometimes accompanied by a burning sensation and bitter taste in your mouth. In fact, it’s that persistent discomfort after dining that probably caused you to visit the doctor for a prescription to get some relief. But you may want to get rid of those potentially deadly medications, because new research suggests alleviating your acid reflux may be as simple as improving your diet.

It is almost astounding that dietary changes wouldn’t be everyone’s first line of defense against reflux. First of all, the Mediterranean diet is an all-around great choice that has been linked to other health benefits including lowering the risk of heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. And second of all, PPIs are often ineffective and potentially dangerous.

What’s more, even when they do work, PPIs simply prevent the release of stomach acid, suppressing a symptom rather than addressing its cause. PPIs were found to increase your risk of cancer, heart disease, and a host of other problems.

In other words, if you are one of the millions of people diagnosed with reflux, make a lifestyle change through diet and leave behind the PPIs for better overall health as well as relief from the condition. And you might want to consider taking digestive enzymes with your meals since that actually encourages your body to produce less stomach acid.
