Dear friends, colleagues, patients and followers.
With a heavy heart, I will be leaving the UK on the 17th March to relocate to Oslo with my lovely girlfriend Ingvild, where I will live and continue practicing as a sports Chiropractor.
However fear not, I am not out of reach and my quest to forever learn and share will not stop there! As I am giving up a busy patient list, it gives me the time and opportunity to learn even more, and upload original content from new and exciting people and places. Before I settle down, I will be traveling around the world for a few months, looking to observe sports teams and different professionals for a fresh perspective. Keep updated with my travels and afterwards more wintry health posts from Norway!
In the mean time, I will be seeing patients in Canary Wharf to review their cases and seamlessly pass them over to another clinician. I will also, of course, be having some little cheeky drinks with friends and colleagues, to see me on my way.
It is an exciting time for myself and if I don’t personally see you before I go, I wanted to say thank you, and that I am very grateful for my time here. I have been lucky to be able to work and interact with such a lovely bunch of professionals and patients. It has been an enjoyable and fun start to my career. I am very much looking forward to the next chapter and I hope that you are too.
Stay healthy and keep an ear out for new updates!
Should we be drinking like fish?
It’s a simple answer, and you won’t even need to keep checking the back of your underpants!
Feel the natural cycle of your body (and the cosmic energy of the universe BRO!) and just knock it back when you are thirsty.
Put it this way, drinking to the exact ‘recommendations’ of medical sources, 1.6; 2 litres (female; male) [NHS 2013] won’t hold true between Ronnie the pensioner and Terry the bodybuilder.
An exact figure would weigh up; water taken up from food/beverages versus water lost from climate, energy expenditure, diet osmolarity, body mass and individual thermoregulation variants.
But your body does this for you with a thing called THIRST! The problem of dehydration often comes when we don’t pay attention to those signals, especially in hot weather.
So it can be helpful to make sure you drink a certain amount per day, especially if you’re busy, but too much water will simply result in more excretion within the hour.
