How is your Winter fire…Alight and sparking?   Reignite your digestive health with these practices.

Healthy abdominal facts:

It’s very important we have strong abdominals but not hard ones.(Like a six pack). As this prevents correct breathing.

The key to healthy abdominals is aided through the ability to breathe correctly, using the abdominal muscles & diaphragm.

Did you know stress can add to abdominal fat around the organs with the release of stress hormones (cortisol).

Age naturally deposits fat on the abdomen & for women this can help for oestrogen stores.

But we know too much fat in this area increases heart disease & diabetes risks.

So everything is about balance.
