Can you believe naturopaths have been around for more than 2000 years? It’s believed that Hippocrates, a Greek physician, developed the concept of “the healing power of nature”. Yet somehow, in 2018, the idea of a naturopath is still confusing to a lot of people. Most of us have heard of a naturopath, but we’re still unsure about what they can actually do for our health, and how it differs from traditional Western medicine.Read More
A diet that’s abundant in lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains and good fats is amazing - it helps us to feel bright, energised and on track in our day-to-day life. But the trouble with maintaining a healthy diet is that it’s not always easy (or fun) - especially when eating out!
At Kreol, we believe in balance, which means enjoying the occasional lunch or dinner out to celebrate a special occasion, or because you really couldn’t be bothered cooking. This doesn’t mean your entire regime needs to fall apart; it’s just about making the smartest decisions at the dinner table.
Here, our favourite nutritionist Steph Wearne of Body Good Foodshares her best tips for staying on track while dining out, and the healthiest menu items to look out for.Read More
Have you ever experienced any kind of gut issue? Maybe it’s been as simple as feeling bloated after one too many sugary treats, or it’s been as serious as constant pain from a food intolerance.
Either way, most of us know this isn’t a good time for our tummy, but think harder: when you’ve experienced bloating, gas, stomach cramps or another kind of gut issue, how did you feel mentally? Chances are you felt upset, frustrated, embarrassed and not interested in doing anything that involves going outside or seeing people.
There is plenty of scientific evidence linking a healthy gut to a healthy, happy mind - especially if you’re forced to deal with an uncomfortable gut issue on a daily basis, and can’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. An unhappy gut can affect your ability to deal with stress, it restricts the “feel-good” chemicals in your body, and really challenges your self-esteem and confidence.Read More
Let’s be honest: being healthy in 2018 can be kinda tricky. Not because we don’t have enough healthy options (we’re spoilt for choice there), it’s just we don’t understand what a lot of those options actually are. From kimchi to activated almonds to ghee, it can be overwhelming to know what’s really healthy and what we should invite into our pantry.Read More
There’s something very therapeutic about spring cleaning; it’s like doing a five-day juice cleanse for the soul. Maybe it’s because we’re finally removing things from our life we no longer need (but have hung onto for way too long) or maybe it’s because we feel like proper grown-ups who have their life together? Either way, spring cleaning is a sure-fire way to hit reset and start the new season with a fresh mindset (and house).
But what if we were able to carry that indescribable feeling through to the other areas of our life? What if our body and mind could feel as clean as our home.Read More
