In season 1 I had three episodes that focused on perimenopause and menopause. A lot of women entering this phase of their life come armed with no information about the changes their bodies are likely to go through. I did not know or understand much about perimenopause and my GP was no help. In fact, he was very dismissive and condescending which annoyed me!

I am always eager to learn more. So, I was delighted when my guest this week...

You may have been told that you are sensitive as a child or even as an adult and did not understand why you felt things deeply. Perhaps people around seem to coast through life without regard for others or being affected by emotions and events as you do.

You feel the energy of the unseen world and unknowingly take on other people's energy and emotions. This in turn can lead to anxiety and overwhelm. 

Perhaps you feel overwhelme...

There is increasing evidence that there are known environmental toxins in our food, water, household products, furnishings, and building materials.

We breathe them in, ingest them and absorb them through our skin. This is worrying and I feel it is important to educate ourselves and make informed decisions about what we put into our bodies and have in our environments.

In this episode, my guest Izzy Kirby and I delve into this subjec...

I first came across Feng Shui a couple of years ago after reading about the benefits of the practice on the home - basically bringing a home into harmony.

I decided at the time to put it into practice and went about placing certain elements like coloured ribbons in the bathroom (to be honest I don't remember what it was meant to do!). Needless to say, it did not work for me because I saw no benefits so I decided to let it go.

In my first ever blog post I shared my personal struggles with my father's mental health issues when I was growing up. This was a time in Uganda where there was not much in the way of mental health services. What made this harder was the stigma associated with mental health issues in many African communities.

Things have moved in since I was a child and there is a better understanding of mental health issues. However, I feel we...

I must admit I did not know much about perimenopause before I started experiencing symptoms myself. I remember seeing a GP who I did not feel was very sympathetic and basically told me, women, my age should just accept this is what happens! I bristled at his attitude and decided to find someone else who could help me understand what was going on. The lady I worked with was wonderful and provided much needed support.

Women should no...
