Why mattresses matter

Sleep is a natural human behaviour that allows your body and mind to rest so that you can function properly the next day. Since the recommended amount of sleep per night is 7-9 hours, it is vital that your body is comfortable and well supported for this duration of time to reduce sleep delay, mid-night disturbances, and after sleep problems like aches and pains. Struggling to get comfortable and overheating throughout the night are two of the nation’s most common sleep concerns. Luckily, OTTY was founded to tackle these two problems and offers a range of hybrid mattresses that combine springs and memory foam to offer both comfort and support.

While a new mattress won’t solve all of your sleep problems, as there are things that can be done to help improve sleep in the lead up to going to bed, like limiting screen time and watching what you eat and drink, investing in a mattress is a good start.

Mattresses with you in mind

With OTTY,  you can wave goodbye to uncomfortable nights that cause you to break out in a sweat and wake up when your partner tosses and turns. Their range of mattresses boasts the largest springs on the market, standing at 16cm tall, which offers support to your body while minimising motion felt when sharing a bed. Each of their mattresses also have temperature regulating technology which works to prevent overheating, one of the leading causes of mid-night disturbances.

For many women, the journey through menopause can be complex and challenging, especially if you’re experiencing an array of symptoms whilst juggling the busy demands of midlife. This can include changes in family dynamics, increasing career commitments and caring for young children as well as ageing parents.

Whether you’re seeking answers in the early stages of menopause, or feel you’re not quite getting the support you need – it’s important to remember that you’re not alone.

At Health & Her, we’re here to help you get back in control with specialist support and a range of options to empower you through your menopause journey.

Are you experiencing symptoms?


There’s more to menopause than hot flushes and period changes. In fact, did you know that there are actually more than 30 recognised symptoms and hot flushes isn’t even in the top 5 that women commonly experience?

As hormones levels begin to decline, women often experience a number of symptoms that can affect the body, mood and mind. These symptoms can range from mild to very severe, and depending on your experience can be a very challenging and upsetting time.

Many of these symptoms begin while you’re in perimenopause – the stage before menopause, and can continue as you transition into menopause.

AM I IN PERIMENOPAUSE OR MENOPAUSE?

Perimenopause is the lesser-known stage prior to menopause when hormone levels fluctuate. During this stage, women experience menopause symptoms while still having periods.

Menopause is the stage after Perimenopause, when you’re experiencing symptoms but have not had a period for 12 months.

For many women, recognising the symptoms can be a good first step towards understanding and managing what’s happening.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. Do any apply to you?

  • HOT FLUSHES – LOSS OF SEX DRIVE                       – NIGHT SWEATS

What solution is best for me?

The research we’ve conducted with thousands of women has helped us understand just how complex menopause symptoms and experiences can be. Every menopause is different, which is why we’ve developed a range of products and services that can be personalised to your menopause stage, severity, and symptoms. While exploring these options, consider how your symptoms are interfering with your day-to-day life.

The various factors to think about, include:

  • Your physical healthsuch as energy, pain, fatigue, discomfort, sleep and rest
  • Your psychological health – negative and positive feelings, self-esteem, body image, appearance, memory and concentration
  • Your independencemobility, activities in your day-to-day life, dependence on medicines, your work capacity
  • Your relationshipspartners, family, friends, sex, and social activity
  • Your environment money matters, participating in recreation and leisure, feeling safe and secure


Did you know

  • On average, the symptoms of perimenopause can take place 4-5 years before periods stop [1]
  • In a recent study, we found that 9/10 women were unable to recognise that their symptoms were related to perimenopause [2]
  • The average age a women experiences perimenopause is 46 [3]
  • The average age a woman experiences menopause is 51 [4]
  • On average, women will experience a combination of 9 menopause symptoms
  • In a study by the British Menopause Society, half of women said their menopause symptoms had affected their home life, their social life (36%), and work life (36%)

Tackling things naturally

Many nutritionists advise paying close attention to the link between your diet and menopause experience, as essential nutrients can play a key role in ensuring you maintain optimal health. To help with this, dietary supplements can be a beneficial way to access concentrated sources of key plants, herbs, nutrients and minerals which are difficult to incorporate into our diet due to over farming and pesticides.

At Health & Her, we’ve worked with expert nutritionists to develop a multi-symptom supplement range to support with 9 of the top symptoms women experience during perimenopause and menopause.

Our supplements have both been carefully formulated with a natural blend of plants, herbs, minerals and phytoestrogens –  plant-based compounds that mimic oestrogen in the body.

The Health & Her Perimenopause Supplement and Menopause Supplement contain clinically proven ingredients and are suitable for vegans, gluten-free, non-GMO and contain no added preservatives.


This product has changed my life. It helped me feel like me, when nothing else I’ve tried has.”  Steph, healthandher.com review  


I started on my perimenopause journey 2 years ago – and felt utterly shocking. I was literally a different person, and I didn’t like her one bit…I’ve just started in month 4 with these supplements and I finally feel balanced. I can’t really believe how different they make me feel! They are a real game changer!Claire, Trustpilot review

“When I started to struggle with my low moods, lack of energy, aching joints etc. I thought they were worth a try…I quickly noticed the difference and now take two every morning without fail.”  L. Stead, healthandher.com review

“I’m so glad to have found a supplement that substantially improves the low energy and joint aches I’ve experienced since the onset of menopause.” Mel, healthandher.com review

Managing severe symptoms

If your symptoms are having a severe effect on your day-to-day life and you’re finding it difficult to cope, we advise speaking to your GP for support.

Unfortunately, there are a limited number of menopause specialists available within NHS led GP surgeries, so if you find that you’re unable to get the support you need, then you may want to consider seeing a private specialist.

At the Health & Her Clinic we offer online consultations with menopause specialist GPs who are highly experienced in the management of menopausal health.

With their specialist knowledge in women’s health, our GPs are qualified to support you with advice and treatment options that are tailored to your needs. Examples of this may include:

  • If you’re looking for a perimenopause diagnosis
  • Need help in considering if HRT is right for you
  • If you’re struggling with your existing HRT or contraceptive and need expert advice

Getting support from an experienced specialist can go a long way when it comes to getting back to feeling like yourself again, and our doctors take the time to listen so you never feel rushed.

 Don’t just take our word for it…

Extremely informative & empowering. An amazing experience to have someone understand the issues I have – helped put everything into perspective! Nila, Health & Her Clinic patient

If you feel like your GP isn’t an expert in the menopause field or you just get snubbed then please consider this empathetic service. I’m so glad I did.

 Healthy living is all about enjoying life’s simple pleasures; laughing, getting fresh air, eating a steady supply of delicious and healthy food… refreshments… music…as it turns out, all the ingredients for a brilliant barbecue! 

There’s more to barbecuing than serving up a few charred sausages. Barbecuing is not just good for the spirits, it can help look after the body too. Meat is less fatty, seafood is off the scale, veggies take on a delicious smoked flavour and fruit becomes sweet and golden, it makes eating healthily feel like a real treat! 

WEBER’S TOP 3 TIPS TO BARBECUE BETTER 

To really master barbecuing you can follow these three steps to create delicious meals cooked to perfection. 

1: GET YOUR LID ON 

We always recommend cooking with the lid down. Meats grill juicier and are infused with that great barbecue taste. And it puts you in control of the temperature. 

2: CHOOSE THE RIGHT COOKING METHOD 

Choose the right cooking method to achieve perfect results every time. Indirect Cooking is ideal for dishes that cook low and slow such as roasts, keeping the heat either side of the food so it doesn’t cook too quickly. Direct Cooking is for dishes that don’t take long to cook, like meat or veggie skewers or thinner cuts of meat – things that come into their own with some focused heat. And for when a little bit of both is needed such as chicken thighs or wings, we use the 50/50 Cooking method – so it’s cooked on the inside as well as the outside. 

3: MASTER THE THERMOMETER 

The only way to know for certain that it’s time to take something off the grill is with a meat thermometer. This prevents you from over cooking or under cooking your food and it gives you the confidence to impress your guests with some delicious meats. 

THE PERFECT STEAK IS NO LONGER RARE 

If you really want to take things to another level, perhaps with an 8-hour brisket never to be forgotten, or with every ribeye cooked perfectly to order, then you need the Weber Connect Smart Grilling Hub. It’s a step-by-step barbecuing assistant that sends notifications directly to your smart 

phone. All it takes is a glance at your phone to know that everything is on track and cooking to perfection. Shop all smart grilling products at Weber.com 

MAKE MEALS TO REMEMBER 

Can’t wait to pick up your tongs and fire up the barbecue? Here’s a couple of our favourite healthy recipes to get you started! For more recipe inspiration sign up to our newsletter at Weber.com 

LAMB LOIN CHOPS WITH LEMON-MINT SALSA VERDE 

PREP TIME: 20 mins • COOKING TIME: 8-10 mins 

INGREDIENTS: 

8 lamb loin chops 

50g fresh mint 

50g fresh parsley 

1 tsp lemon zest 

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice 

1 tbsp chopped shallot 

1 tbsp drained capers 

1 garlic clove 

1/2 tsp sea salt 

1/4 tsp chilli flakes 

4 tbsp olive oil 

IN THE KITCHEN: 

In a food processor or blender, combine the mint, parsley, lemon zest and juice, shallot, capers, garlic, salt and chilli flakes, and pulse to chop roughly. Slowly add the olive oil and process until a chunky salsa forms. 

Transfer to a bowl, cover with cling film, pressing it directly onto the surface to prevent discolouration, set aside at room temperature (the salsa can be made up to 4 hours in advance, keep in the fridge then bring to room temperature and stir before serving). 

Lightly brush the lamb with olive oil on both sides and season with salt and pepper. Stand the chops at room temperature for 15-30 minutes before barbecuing. 

AT THE BARBECUE: 

Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over medium heat (180-230°C). Cook the chops over grilling/direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to your desired doneness (8-10 minutes for medium rare), turning once. 

Remove from the barbecue and leave to rest for 3-5 minutes. Serve the chops warm with salsa on top. 

AUBERGINE BURGER WITH TZATZIKI 

PREP TIME: 40 mins • COOKING TIME: 6-8 mins 

INGREDIENTS: 

2 aubergines 

1-2 little gem lettuces 

1 small pot of fresh coriander 

1 red onion 

4 burger buns 

Olive oil 

Curry marinade: 

75ml vegetable oil 

1 tsp curry powder 

Juice of 1/2 lime 

2 cloves of garlic 

Salt & pepper 

Tzatziki: 250ml of 10% Greek yoghurt, 1 cucumber, coarsely grated, 1/2 clove of garlic 

IN THE KITCHEN: 

Cut the aubergines into 1cm slices. For the curry marinade, combine the olive oil, curry powder, lime juice and crushed garlic. Brush the slices of aubergine with a generous coating of marinade on both 

sides, season with salt and pepper. For the tzatziki, squeeze out the excess liquid from the grated cucumber and combine in a bowl with yoghurt, crushed garlic, salt and pepper. 

AT THE BARBECUE: 

Prepare the barbecue for direct heat, approx. 220°C. If using a charcoal barbecue, you will need just under half a chimney starter of lit briquettes. Cook the aubergine over direct heat for 3-4 minutes each side until they have nice grill marks. 

Split the burger buns and drizzle a little olive oil on the cut side. Toast them lightly over direct heat until they have nice grill marks too. 

Assemble the burgers: lettuce on the bottom, then tzatziki, two slices of barbecued aubergine, onion rings and fresh coriander. 

From choosing the pillow to give you the perfect level of support and comfort, to picking the correct duvet with the optimum thickness and warmth level. These are all factors which will help determine how well you sleep, and most importantly make sure you wake up feeling well-rested and refreshed.

If you’re having trouble sleeping we’ve rounded up four key things to start thinking about when trying to get a great night’s sleep.

Duvet Comfort

If you are waking up during the night because you’re too hot, you may need to look at what tog duvet you have. Choosing a lower tog will keep you cooler.

Pillow Support

If you wake in the morning with a sore neck it sounds like a pillow issue. Your sleeping position is important to understand the pillow support you need. Front sleepers need a soft support pillow, back sleepers a medium support pillow and side sleepers a firmer support pillow

Climate Control

 Feeling hot is the second most common reason for waking up at night. Our Climate Control range uses a breathable DACRON® filling, to help carry excess moisture away from the head and body, keeping you cool and dry.

Allergens

We know allergies can stop you from getting the best night’s sleep, that why we created our Anti-Allergy range, to help reduce the build-up of dust mites and bacteria, creating a healthier sleep space.

What are some of the signs of colic?

The symptoms of colic are distinctive and often occur soon after feeding and late in the afternoon and evening. At other times your baby may seem happy and content.

Some signs of colic in babies:

  • Intense crying, lasting several hours
  • Clenched fists, arched back or knees pulled up to tummy
  • Red of flushed face when crying

Practical tips to try

  • Soothing with gentle rocking motions
  • Warm baths
  • Gentle stomach or back rubs

 

What is reflux and regurgitation?

Reflux and regurgitation, or ‘posseting’, are very common in infants and it’s thought to be related to a developing digestive system. Your baby will usually grow out of the symptoms by their first birthday, but the symptoms can be distressing for both parents and baby.

Some signs of reflux in babies:

  • Constant or sudden crying
  • Regularly having ‘wet burps’ or hiccups
  • An arched back after feeding

Practical tips to try

  • Burp your baby before, during and after feeding
  • Hold your baby upright during, and for about 30min after, feeding

 

 If you think your baby has colic or reflux, speak to your healthcare professional for advice about possible management options.

The most recent national survey found that up to one in four people were deficient in the essential vitamin, thanks to a combination of low dietary intake and inadequate sun exposure.

And now vitamin D deficiency has been linked to Covid-19.

So, how do we get adequate amounts of vitamin D? Sunlight exposure is our primary source, but as we spend more time indoors during the autumn and winter months, we need to seek alternative options.

Health experts are now urging the public to consume more mushrooms to achieve their vit hit.

High in fibre and containing virtually no fat, sugar, or salt, mushrooms are known as nature’s ‘sunny sponges’, having the unique ability to increase vitamin D amounts when exposed to UV-light or sunlight, thanks to the fungi containing a specific compound called ergosterol.

 

Mushrooms specifically enriched with the sunshine vitamin are readily available at supermarkets, thanks to The UK & Ireland Mushroom Producers, a partnership between key mushroom farmers.

Eating just eight vitamin D enriched mushrooms a day would give you your daily recommended amount.

Whilst enriched mushrooms will naturally come with a greater vitamin D content, you can easily add a natural dose to regular British or Irish mushrooms by simply placing them on a windowsill when the sun is at its strongest.

Available 365 days a year in UK & Irish supermarkets, shopping the freshest, locally sourced mushrooms that have travelled fewer miles will ensure you consume the most nutritious mushrooms available.

Why not try give yourself a nutrient boost the next time you buy a pack of mushrooms, to find out just how magical mushrooms really are, visit www.mushroomsaremagic.co.uk.

The Epidermis or widely known the skin barrier is the outermost layer. It is made of cells called corneocytes which are surrounded by a viscous matrix of lipid and water. This lipid matrix is composed of ceramides (approximately 50%), free fatty acids (10%- 20%), and cholesterol (25%)2

The function of the skin barrier is to support and protect the deeper skin layers. External factors such as pollution, ultraviolet light and chemical irritation can disrupt the skin barrier resulting in loss of water, a key feature in dry and eczema- prone skin3

Therefore, skin hydration is a key to maintain a healthy intact skin barrier preventing risk of eczema episodes.

the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Guidelines states that patients with dry eczema prone- skin should hydrate their skin up to four times a day using an unperfumed emollients4
