Menopause Special

By Host | 24/07/2021

Listen To This Episode About This Episode As you might expect in an episode called Menopause Special, we talked about the menopause. Mostly. New co-host Adelle Martin is a menopause expert and so for her first episode in the studio (when we didn’t have a guest) it seemed sensible to exploit her knowledge and experience. Be rude not to! We discussed how we feel right now – mainly angry for no apparent reason. We trip along with what we’re reading right now, what we learned this week and round off with a sprinkling of tricky menopause symptoms that women often experience, but which are often attributed by them and their doctors to more another scarier cause. We hope you enjoy the show, find it useful and come out the other side of it with the idea that you can successfully run a business and deal with the menopause. For more information about how you can interact with the show, perhaps as a guest or sponsor, please visit https://thewomeninbusinessradioshow.com Key Takeaway   Understand the possible symptoms if you start feeling odd, you may have a clue what’s happening before you see medical help.

This Will Just Have To Do For Now!

By Host | 10/06/2021

Listen To This Episode About This Episode This will just have to do! You may wonder why the show has this rather odd title? It’s because when setting up for the broadcast everything just kept going wrong: the light fell down, so did the green screen, the mouse wouldn’t work, and so it went on. Yes, there was time to fix it, but we just couldn’t be arsed, not today In the show, we discuss reopening from lockdown and what to expect given what we’re seeing for some of our clients and connections. We also discuss ideas for moving forward. Right at the end we dip into the idea of stigma, people’s preset ideas and a key insight for preconceived ideas about coaches. • • • It’s a rather disjointed show, but it’s been a rather disjointed month! Key Takeaway There are lots happening for people right now. If people aren’t engaging with you or your business, take heart, it’s not you, it’s what’s going on. It will all grow. Just be aware and alert to what’s happening and develop with it.

From Corporate To Business – Taking The Plunge After 40

By Host | 09/04/2021

Listen To This Episode Guests About This Episode Real-Life Stories Of Women Starting Their Business After 40 Years Of Age.   What’s it like to start your first business when you’re in your 40’s? The Women in Business Radio Show Team, Sian, Laura and Jackie, are joined by guest Suzanne Shaw, Kent Trainers Ltd, her business venture after leaving a successful corporate career.   During the show, we hear startup stories explore some of the ups and downs of starting a business over 40.   Grab a coffee (or a glass of wine), settle down and listen in for some top tips, ideas and, of course, a light-hearted and fun discussion. Key Takeaway Launching a business when you are older has definite advantages. Life experiences, career and life skills are likely to be better developed.  One factor which might be a barrier is fear, and especially that around income expectations. The longer we have spent in our career, the higher our salary is likely to be. However, being realistic about how long it can take to achieve your income goals and creating a solid business plan helps you manage risk, expectations and set a course for success.  But as our guest today put it, “Do It!” Top Tips For Being in Business Top tips from our guests live on air… “Consider all of the business administration you need to do beyond the stuff you love doing” Sian Murphy “Listen to your gut and don’t be afraid” Jackie Groundsell “Go For It” Suzanne Shaw what do you know now, that you wish you had known when you had started out? We always try and get this question in live on air… “Everything takes four times longer than you think it will” Sian Murphy “You can be the best boss you’ve ever had” Laura Lawrence “It’s hard. It’s not an easy ride. You have to put your heart and soul into it as running a business isn’t a hobby” Suzanne Shaw

How Homeopathy and Natural Remedies Restore Sleep, Naturally

By WIB Radio Team | 25/03/2021

For World Sleep Day 2021, I thought it would be timely to write about sleep, and how Homeopathy and natural therapies can help restore natural sleep. It will come as no surprise that insomnia statistics are rocketing during the pandemic, and that people should have as many options for treatment as possible, because the research shows that one size does not fit all. Let’s look at some recent statistics for insomnia and Coronasomnia: ·       In 2017, Mintel report that 1:4 adults experience insomnia with nearly 50% of those being women.1 That’s because hormonal shifts experienced by women affect the delicately balanced endocrine system and stress from the juggling act of life creates the high levels of cortisol and adrenaline in the blood which disrupts sleep  ·       Researchers at Southampton University reported a sharp increase in anxiety-related sleeplessness in mothers, key workers and those with BAME heritage2 ·       Social restrictions have disrupted sleep which affects immunity.3  ·       Researchers report how sleep can improve outcomes for Covid-194 ·       Researchers link severity of Covid-19 to gut health5 Most people’s first experience of sleep medicine is called sleep hygiene, a series of practical tips, guidance and advice which certainly set the scene for good sleep, but research confirms that sleep hygiene alone is not enough to help people sleep.6  Some people may be recommended a course of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (“CBT”) but that will depend on your health authority’s resources. CBT can help change behaviour around problematic habits but this approach doesn’t work for everyone.  Failing that, medication is often a last resort for persistent and chronic insomnia. I have worked as a Homeopath and Natural Health Consultant for over 20 years and have helped countless clients with all types of health problems and associated sleep conditions. Sleep is a great indicator of health and wellbeing – a bridge between the mind and body – and is why it forms part of my standard case taking. I have a wealth of experience and expertise in treating sleep and, while reading an article on insomnia, the penny dropped: the research confirms the efficacy of Homeopathy and natural therapies for insomnia,7-10 and further research shows that there is the desire for natural alternatives for insomnia, and Sleepability was born! What makes Homeopathy so effective is its simplicity. Each client and their prescription are individualised meaning no two people’s insomnia is the same, because each person is unique as are the causes of insomnia. Your life and response to a stressor will be different from another person’s experience of the same event. Equally, your medical and that of your family is unique.  To arrive at a bespoke remedy, expert case taking identifies that unusual and perhaps unique element in your case. For example, we work out what helps or hinder your insomnia; what worries or stresses you; perhaps you resort to drinking to help yourself wind down; or find yourself overeating and suffering with indigestion at night; perhaps you’re in pain, or experiencing side effects from your medication; maybe you drive yourself to excel or perhaps the opposite – you’ve let if all go now you’re working remotely; perhaps you’re lonely, or are better without company; or maybe vivid or repetitive dreams are keeping you from sleep. This will give you an idea of how unique everyone’s insomnia is and is why the ‘one size fits all’ will only ever have limited effectiveness. The key to the long term solution is you.  You’ve probably heard it before but gut health but it is absolutely fundamental to your sleep, immunity and mental health. This is because the microbiome is by far the biggest producer of the sleep hormone, Melatonin.11  See my suggestions below and start from today to improve your gut health and sleep.  Research has confirmed a direct and bidirectional link between sleep and mental health,12 so any steps you take to improve your sleep will improve your mental health, and vice versa. In terms of immunity, medical science is encouraged to promote sleep health for therapeutic control of chronic infectious, inflammatory and mental health disorders.13,14  Stress Management is another string to the Sleepability bow as I find people need practical tips to empower them to manage their sleeplessness. The stress may be personal or work-related but regardless of cause, the stress hormones produced will prevent you from sleeping.15-19 This is where a truly holistic approach to sleeplessness is effective. Homeopathy and Nutrition can help take your body off of ‘red alert’ and break the stress hormone cycle, to help restore your sleep naturally. In my experience, no amount of sleep hygiene tips will help a person who is stressed, anxious or suffering from trauma, bereavement or shock. My ‘roots & branch’ combines the best of sleep hygiene with Homeopathy and natural remedies. 1.        Healthy Gut = Healthy Sleep. From today, start taking one or more of the following:  ·       Kefir Yoghurt, Kombucha (non dairy option), Sauerkraut & Kimchi, Prebiotic and Probiotic supplements, Sea Buckthorn supplement ·       Eat more fibre (fruit, veg, pulses, nuts and wholegrains to feed gut flora) 2.        Homeopathy & Natural Therapies. Using my ‘root & branch’ approach, I identify the cause of your insomnia with expert case taking and restore sleep using bespoke homeopathic remedies, nutrition and stress management. 4.        Ditch the Tech. One of the biggest sleep myths is tech to help you sleep! The bedroom is for rest and intimacy only – not your gadgets. Electromagnetic radiation interferes with your sleep brainwaves. De-SMART your home, switch off your tech 2 hours before bedtime – and that includes your router at the plug point!  For more information, see my Top 7 Tips – the journey to natural sleep. Invest in your rest. Because sleep matters. Author Details Fliss Foster Sleepability is a unique and effective approach to insomnia. Combining the best of sleep hygiene, homeopathy and natural remedies, and 20 years of working with clients, I offer a ‘roots & branch’ approach to help you sleep again, naturally.
