What a statistic: 81% of women, professional or otherwise, are using alcohol to cope with daily stress – whether it be caused by work, family, relationships or just life in general. I’m sure this is not new but we’re more open about it nowadays. What is good news is that so many women are taking control of their health and coming to us for a complete body cleanse to enable them to get back on track. We offer them a safe, nurturing, non-judgmental space to do just that at Simply Healing.

We have been on the case – advising our clients about the best detox cleanse for them, not just one programme that fits all. Our newly devised Hormone Balanced Detox Cleanse can help you to focus on a more balanced lifestyle. We have created a very special detox plan for women who have reached a crisis point with the menopause. This is one of the many emails that we receive on a daily basis:

“I am 51, and my health in recent months has not been good. I am very tired and have aches and pains everywhere and a huge bloated stomach. I am thirty to forty pounds overweight, my hair has turned to wire wool and I am often crabby and seem to be premenstrual every day. My skin is dry like parchment and I am consuming a bottle of wine every night to cope. A bit of a wreck, you could say. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME?”

Over the years we have seen many, many women whose children have left the nest, whose partners don’t understand, whose bosses don’t understand and who are told nothing but “you’re menopausal” so they struggle along trying all sorts of different formulas, from HRT to complimentary therapies – and while some work, some don’t. From our dealings with hormone issues we have been able to gauge how to help symptoms like: mood swings, weight gain, insomnia, hot flushes, dry skin, dry hair, brittle nails, frequented visits to the loo (and the list goes on and on). All of these symptoms can lead to lack of self-esteem and sometimes it is very hard to see your way forward.

We can help you, yes we can! A bit of advice – start by cutting down on the wine, and make a juice instead. A fresh apple, pear, lemon and ginger juice can bring up your blood sugar so that your sugar cravings lessen. Take time out, kick off those shoes, put your feet up for ten minutes, and forget the kettle. This juice will rehydrate your body.
