      SEN WELLNESS

      Welcome to Sen Wellness!

      In this blog, I will be sharing my observations from almost 30 years of medical practice and 50 years of life experience!
      I’ve noticed that those who make healthy choices in all aspects of their lives have fewer physical and mental health problems. As a result, they also tend to look younger and lead happier, more productive lives.

      In my Wellness section, I will focus on health and wellbeing, sharing my top tips on how to strike a healthier balance, plus product recommendations to help you to look and feel your best. Whatever challenges you are facing, looking after yourself will help you deal with what life throws at you ... and look amazing in the process!

      WHY WE SHOULD LOVE GERMS

      It might sound ridiculous when we have spent months wearing face masks and slathering alcohol gel on our skin, to say that germs might actually be beneficial for our health.

      It’s a bizarre paradox but at a time when our society has never been so image focussed or had so many resources to help us with weight control, we have never been so overweight.

      Strangely, unlike most other areas of the body where women often wish to banish hair growth we actively pursue ways of enhancing the growth from these special follicles.
