Gemma’s Sugar Blog: Should health have a holiday?
Last Wednesday I was 9 weeks no alcohol and 5 weeks no sugar. I’d completely abstained from alcohol and, other than my previously mentioned mini slips with fructose (oh shame on you sugar-free banana cake), I’ve been successful on no sugar too. Then I went on holiday. To Cornwall. My intentions were good from the […]

Gemma’s Sugar Blog : I need to confess
I’ve now done two weeks sugar free. And I need to be honest about two things. Firstly, I’ve cheated. Secondly, I’m struggling. There we go – now that’s out can I eat something sweet please? Well it’s not like I’ve eaten a bar of chocolate or an ice cream but last week I did crave […]

Anyone for an ice cream?
Right, I won’t lie, this giving up sugar is hard. Giving up sugar when the sun comes out and everyone is eating ice creams and lollies is even harder. And giving up sugar the same week your youngest son turns two years old and everyone is eating chocolate cake and cupcakes is just about the […]

Sugar. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Sometimes, as part of your job, you don’t know what’s around the corner. Certainly, last week I hadn’t anticipated Gemma’s invitation to join her on a sugar-free 8-week challenge, but I love the idea. Perhaps not as much as I love sugar…. …but as someone very recently diagnosed with a mind-boggling number of skin allergies, and […]

I’m going Sugar FREE…!
New choices. Three weeks ago today, I quit alcohol. I’m not quite sure yet if it’s for good or just to give my body an extended rest but either way I am super proud of myself so far and have intentions to continue for a little while yet. My decision to remove alcohol from my […]

Reverse osmosis – a simple way to achieve HTM 01-05 and L8 compliance
Yet another recent report recommends that reservoir water bottles in dental chairs be filled with freshly-produced Reverse Osmosis (RO) or distilled water, as they are less likely to contain Nontuberculous Mycobacteria and Pseudomonads found in potable water. (Pankhurst CL et al. Dental unit water lines and their disinfection and management: Dental Update 2017; 44: 284-292.) […]
