I love summer don’t you? During the warmer months of the year I feel lighter, happier and more energised. It feels like a holiday. Unfortunately, when the cooler, cloudy autumn and winter months start rolling in so do the blues.
Some of us start to feel a little down, a little depressed and bleak. For most people this is only a temporary thing but for others it can be more than that. Some of us can be prone to SAD, 'Seasonal Affective Disorder’. Can infrared heating at home help?
What is 'SAD' and why does it happen?
According to the National Sleep Foundation, and other exp

After I had my first baby it was super tricky getting back into exercise. In fact, I couldn’t walk properly for three months, had abdominal separation and back pain.
I wanted to walk, but even going up the driveway was hard for so long!
Not only that, but the time I used to have for exercise was reduced by at least half or more. Realistically, getting in 10 minutes was a huge achievement of just some light bodyweight exercises.
Then it dawned on m

Most professionals agree that there are many health benefits with regular infrared sauna use. From muscle relief to heart health, from stress relief to looking feeling younger using an infrared sauna regularly can improve our quality of life.

Using a low EMF Infrared sauna can help keep our exposure to a minimum.
What is EMF?
EMF stands for electromagnetic force (or electromotive force). EMF is found in the natural world by sources such as the local build-up of electric charge in the atmosphere

Where did Pilates all begin?
Joseph Hubertus Pilates was born in Germany in 1883. As a child, Joe suffered many ailments including asthma so he turned to exercise and athletics to help. He studied various exercise routines and was transfixed with the idea of the classical Greek ideal of man with a balanced mind, body and spirit. Hence Pilates was born.
In 1912 Joe went to the U.K working as a defense instructor at Scotland Yard but at the outbreak of World War I he was interned as an “enemy alien”. Rather than wallow he refined his ideas by training other internees by rigging springs to hospital beds to enable patients to
1 in 9 Australians have asthma – around 2.7 million and many more with allergies. Asthma and allergy sufferers are constantly in discomfort caused by dust and pet hair and are now looking to water filtration vacuums to rid their homes of allergens. Let's compare the Sirena Vacuum Cleaner to the Rainbow and see which is the best.
Why Choose A Water Filtration Vacuum?
Water filtration systems like the Sirena Vacuum Cleaner and Rainbow Vacuum Cleaner succeed where traditional vacuum cleansers fail.
Instead of relying on dust bags to collect dirt, water filtration vacuums force the vacuumed air into a water reservoir, which keeps the dirt trapped within the water and thus prevents it from being blown back into the air.
This is of critical importance for allergy sufferers who are looking for a hypoallergenic vacuum that can eradicate dust mites and allergens from the home, instead of sucking it in and blowing it back out.
This blog aims to compare t
More and more people are suffering from allergies these days, and it only worsens every year with the arrival of spring The Sirena Water Filtration Vacuum could be just what you need.
Regular cleaning can help to alleviate some of the symptoms caused by asthma, breathing sensitivities or allergies to dust mites, pet hair, mould and dirt in the home. A high quality HEPA water filtration vacuum cleaner sucks dust, dirt and allergens into water and will not re-emit allergens back into the air...
Regular vacuuming can can do more harm than good by stirring up particles that were previously settled and blowing it back into the moving air that you breathe. A total nightmare for allergy and asthma sufferers!
A hypoallergenic vacuum cleaner is the best way forward.
According to Diabetes Australia many of us are unaware that we have diabetes or are heading in that direction.
A recent study at Austin Health, a major tertiary health service in Melbourne’s north-east, found that 34% of patients in our hospitals had diabetes. Surprisingly, 5% of these people had silent, undiagnosed type 2 diabetes that was only detected after they were admitted to hospital. An estimated 500,000 of us are living with silent, undiagnosed diabetes at great risk to our health.
Diabetes Australia's research has shown a worrying level of community antipathy toward type 2 diabetes even though 2 million of us are at high risk. Apparently
