Low mood for no reason?

Thursday, 10 May 2018 11:08:12 Europe/London

Low mood for no reason?

Mood is complicated thing and is affected by a large variety of factors.

All things considered, if your someone who spends most of their time in a good mood, give yourself a pat on the back because it’s not easy.

Of course, life comes with challenges and generally when we are feeling a little down, a little less motivated or a little less energetic, we know the reason.

However, both men and women of all ages, experience phases where they are a bit little blue for no discernible reason. This is low mood over a short term.

 (If you are experiencing low mood for an extended period or Its getting worse instead of better that ok too and you are not alone but this may not be as helpful for you there are online resources like https://www.samaritans.org/branches/samaritans-galway )

Maybe work is fine, home life is good, money is coming in and there are no massive problems in your life. Maybe everything is under control. But also, maybe the next thing you’re looking forward to is a little too far away or the weekend feels further away than ever. Something small and seemingly insignificant can tip your mood off balance and that is understandable but what can you do to get it back on kilter.

Milk Thistle

Wednesday, 29 November 2017 11:56:48 Europe/London

Milk Thistle

Also know as St. Mary’s Thistle, this herb comes from the white veins on it’s spiked leaves which we thought to carry the milk of the Virgin Mary.

Belonging to the Daisy family, Milk Thistle is most commonly known for its protective action on the liver although Milk Thistle’s function goes way deeper than that. Classified also as an antioxidant, it also has shown to regenerate the liver cells after liver damage, reduce the production or release of inflammatory mediators, and lower the production of glucose in animal studies (1). Milk thistle also has an effect on the gastrointestinal system and is used for loss of appetite, gallbladder complaints, and dyspepsia (2).

Milk Thistle is very safe to the general public, however there is a theroredical risk with people on Tamoxifen so they should consult a medical herbalist before supplementing with this herb. Due to it’s positive effect on glucose metabolism consultation should also occur with people on insulin medication. Some studies have observed a reduction of serum ferritin levels with long term use of Milk Thistle & so anyone taking it for an extended period of more than 12 weeks should get their levels checked.

 

Supplementation with Milk Thistle is available through liquid by Irish Botanica and Vogel, or by tablet through Viridian (vegan), Solgar and Vogel.
