In February 2018 I signed up to the Abingdon Marathon and Ealing Half Marathon which marks 10 years since I had open heart surgery to put right a congenital heart valve issue. Before this operation I wasn't able to run easily but was always very active and competed on a bicycle fairly successfully. . In 2016 I ran my first ever marathon (fulfilling a life-long ambition) but struggled with injuries in the build-up to it, and during the months following. Running, for me, highlighted every weakness my body had and lead from one injury to the next. Working closely with Mathieu at Bridge to Health throughout this time - to keep me on the straight and narrow and to put me back together when broken - was a massive help.
In celebration of our tenth anniversary, the Bridge to Health clinics will be open to meet and greet existing and prospective patients. We would like you invite you to come and join us!
Delaying ageing isn’t just about fighting wrinkles, it’s about creating a positive outlook and ensuring overall wellness.
We live in a culture where we think perfection is the epitome of beauty and that our youth is the most exciting times of our lives.

There is no detour around the aging process. The fact is, as we age, we lose bone mass (Osteopenia) and gain conditions like Arthritis which result in pain and decreased flexibility in the joints.

In case you didn’t already know, coconut flour has a much lower impact on our blood sugar levels than wheat flour and is higher in protein. It’s made from the flesh of the coconut, is gluten free and far tastier than other wheat flour alternatives.

When we’re young, most of us take our skeleton for granted. It may fracture or even break from time to time, but on the whole, it is an unobtrusive constant. It works tirelessly to provide both protection and pose without any real effort on our part.
