Ouch Sex!

  • Q: Sex is getting sooo uncomfortable. Please tell me, is there a way to revive the joy?A: We reckon yes! With a supplement to help restore suppleness in that intimate internal area, and something topical to ease discomfort, top pharmacist, Shabir Daya, has these ideas:

    The Supplement: Sea Buckthorn Oil contains omega 7 fatty acid, which promotes regeneration of mucous membranes that form the protective lining of the vagina, digestive tract and the surface of eyes and mouth.

    The Soother: Many lubricants have ingredients that may disturb the delicate pH balance, so an all-natural, water-based version is your go-to-soother of choice.
    We like: Good Glide with Love Beads, which contains hemp oil beads that melt on contact for an extra lubrication and a stimulating experience!

Noisy Ears

  • Q The rushing in my ears is driving me completely nuts! Is there anything that helps?A: Often tinnitus comes and goes, so check if it’s worse when you have a cold or eat certain foods. Giving up dairy for a week or so could help, but if not, then what? Pharmacist Shabir Daya has some ideas.

    Check your Bs. Sufferers of tinnitus have been found to have lower levels of vitamin B12, says Shabir. He suggests taking an under-the-tongue version that hits the bloodstream quickly and more effectively.

    Try a tincture: There’s anecdotal evidence to indicate that plantago may help. Traditionally used for sinus congestion, it calms inflamed nerves within the inner ear.

  • The all-natural hair-care line Phylia de M has garnered a cult following by transforming scraggly mops into thick manes. One of the key ingredients, a fulvic acid compound, was developed by the founder Kazu Namise’s godfather, a Japanese oncologist. Now Namise is selling the regenerative blend straight up in Fulphyl, a supplement that, she says, removes toxins and free radicals from the body. Bonus: ‘Pour a mix of chicken manure, water and fulvic acid over your garden and your plants will grow like mad’, Namise says. Considering its $220 (£160) a bottle, I’m keeping it all for myself.Buy Now
