Have you caused your Crohn’s / Colitis?

Did you see the poor girl get a lot of abuse in the Crohn’s and Colitis FB group recently? She’d asked simply a question about how diet can help with symptoms. Unfortunately it brought out a lot of troll type comments, some of which were quite nasty for asking what was a very valid question.…

Could this detox help your Crohn’s / UC?

We’re now one month into 2017. How are those New Year’s resolutions going? There’s always talk at the start of each year about going on a “detox”. However, most diet detoxes are often nothing more than a fad advertised by companies just trying to sell you their ineffective products. That said, the other weekend I…

My Supplement Range

Are you a fan of the show “Dragon’s Den”? (that’s “Shark Tank” for my American friends). I love the programme. It’s always good to see what weird wacky (and sometimes great) ideas people have come up with. What always surprises me though is when they bring along samples of their new amazing product for the…

Alcohol and Damage Limitation

What’s your favourite Christmas movie? I personally am torn between the hilarious “Elf”, and the simply magical “Santa Claus the Movie”. For me, those two are head and shoulders above the rest (unless you count Home Alone as a Christmas movie too which is, obviously, up there with the best of them). I absolutely love…

Did you hear about this hilarious rule?

Did you hear about the EU ruling that bananas should not be bendy? (yep, apparently that actually happened) They stated that all bananas must be “free of abnormal curvature”.
