Finding a happy, healthy you

Do you want to feel happier? Perhaps you want to be healthier? Or maybe you want to feel happier and be healthier but you’re not sure where to start?

The answer’s simple – join the Girls Around Town this weekend to hear what guest Amanda Whitehead has to say…

She’ll be talking to June and Rosalyn about her own struggles with IBS and an under-active thyroid. And how she’s now using the lessons she learned on her journey to better health to help others overcome their own problems.

Through her Lincoln-based business Calm Holistic – soon to be renamed Healthy Happy You – Amanda shows clients how making the right decisions about what they  choose to eat and drink, how they breathe, sleep and move can help create balance in all areas of their lives.

From the importance of nutrition to whether ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to the right amount of exercise to be doing, she’ll be sharing her top tips for becoming that happy, healthy you…

Make sure you tune to 107.8FM or listen online from 10am to 12 noon on Sunday to hear how making a start is as easy as one-two-three!

Taking your body and mind from tired to inspired

Finding a fresh perspective on the game of life

There’s a definite wellbeing buzz here on Girls Around Town this month, with Claire Clements and Louise Hallam in the studio earlier today talking about blissful balance and Alison Harris offering hints and tips for healthy eating habits in two weeks’ time.

Completing the trifecta, Sunita Passi will be joining June next Sunday to share details of an upcoming event in Nottingham and a brand new centre she’s just opened in the beautiful Vale of Belvoir, both of which focus on different aspects of – yes, you guessed it – wellness…

From 7.15pm to 10.45pm on Friday 11 October, she’ll be hosting Create Your Future, a lively exploration of authenticity and how to be more of yourself, whatever form that takes in your life.

During the evening Jamie Catto, whose hit career with Faithless is matched by his enthusiastic approach to spirituality and relationships, will be sharing some of his adventures and what they’ve taught him.

Jamie’s workshops attract people from far afield and, for this one, he’ll be joined by other health and business experts in a panel discussion and Q&A session designed to help participants look forward to a fresh perspective on the game of life.

There’ll be news from Sunita too about her Wellness Centre, now up and running at The Engine Yard following its launch and open day on Sunday 11 August.

In a tranquil spot close to Belvoir Castle, the centre is a place where you can unplug from the world and enjoy a range of classes and treatments with some of the region’s most skilful therapists, from ayurvedic massages, facials and body scrubs to yoga, meditation and more…

Tune in to 107.8FM or listen online between 10am and 12 noon to find out how to take care of your mind, body and emotions through these natural processes of healing.

And how, with a little help from Jamie, you can discover ways to make more of yourself and your life.

Whatever it is we do, we owe it to ourselves to be the best we can be. One blissful consequence is that allows us to support others to do the same – the effects of self-care ripple through everything we do – Sunita Passi

Tackling tummy troubles

It’s just over a year since naturopath and colonic hydrotherapist Linda Booth last joined the Girls Around Town in the studio. But she’ll be back this weekend to offer more advice on what to do if your digestive system’s not quite up to scratch right now…

Widely known as the Tummy Queen, Linda’s career in natural medicine began over a quarter of a century ago, in 1992. Since 2005, she’s been running one of the UK’s most successful natural digestive and gut disorders clinics and has carried out over 60,000 consultations and treatments.

Putting her knowledge and experience to good use, she’s created her own range of probiotics and supplements, Just For Tummies, and she’ll be chatting to Rosalyn and June about how optimising your digestion can increase your energy levels and give you more zest for life.

“In my experience, irritable bowel syndome (IBS), bloating, abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhoea, indigestion, heartburn, acid reflux, fatty liver, excess gas, thrush and urinary tract infections (UTIs) can all be alleviated,” says Linda. “It’s simply a matter of knowing and understanding what is causing your symptoms and then adopting a tailored supplementation plan.”

Tune in or listen online between 10am and 12 noon on Sunday to find more about IBS in particular, as Linda explains just what it is, what causes it and – crucially – what cures it!
