Latest news from Savanna Therapies

Hello everyone,
Hope you are keeping safe and well. It's been another busy month at Savanna Therapies. It has been lovely to see so many of you. As well as offering treatments, I have also continued with my studies and started a 'Using Crystals in Reflexology' course, which has been fascinating. 

Importance of fitness and nutrition 

I stumbled across an article this week about nutrition which highlighted that the key to staying strong and healthy as we get older is to make sure we eat enough of certain nutrients.

We all know that what we eat is important and this has an impact on how well we move, feel and sleep. Older people tend to eat less; which in turn decreases the amount of key nutrients such as calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin B and E. And this can put health at risk.

Here are some tips on how to improve your diet now to reap the benefits as you get older:

  • Protein priority – From the age of 30, we loses 1% of our muscle mass every year. And this only increases in our 40s and as women approach the menopause.  This is when protein becomes important to maintain muscle mass. Protein rich food include chicken, fish, soy, eggs, almonds, broccoli, lentils and quinoa
  • Plant life – Eating a plant-based diet has been shown to bring lot of benefits. Tomatoes are full of anti-oxidants. Eating lots of fibre which is found in many fruit and vegetables helps to reduce the risk of chronic disease. A high fibre diet will help optimise gut health too and can help reduce inflammation
  • Increase calcium – As you get older your bone density decreases, particularly as we get to the menopause.  It's important to eat calcium-rich foods such as dark leafy greens like kale and spinach(both are also rich in iron), as well as oily fish, fortified nuts and dairy.  Also do weight-bearing exercise like strength training, running and walking
  • Less junk food – Your body becomes more sensitive to sugar and ‘bad’ fats as you get older; and it can lead to peaks and troughs of insulin which leads to energy instability.  It is also said that people who eat a lot of processed food tend to have faster ageing chromosomes too
  • Keep drinking – Make sure you stay hydrated, especially during the summer months
Fitness and nutrition is important – so remember prioritise whole foods, protein, plants as well as resistance and weight-bearing exercises.

World Wellbeing Week

This week is World Wellbeing Week and reflexology is great at improving your wellbeing, so why not book an appointment today? I am taking bookings from 5 July.

As well as treatments like reflexology, there are other ways though that you can improve your wellbeing.

Making time for yourself is important and we all need to recharge, recover and reset.  You may like to spend time alone, or socialise with friends and family. You might like to read or listen to music or indulge in a box set on Netflix. You might want to spend time on your hobbies, exercise or meditate.

Do whatever you need to do to relax and have some time out. That's what is important.

In the words of the great Dolly Parton ‘Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.'

That's all for this month. Take care and stay safe and well.

Love Andrea x
