Sugar and Health

On my recent visit to China I was struck by how little sugar there was on sale. We had many lovely banquets with wonderful exotic food, but never anything sweet. Walking down the street, the street food was all savoury, and supermarkets had a tiny sweet section. Cakes are made for special occasions and anniversaries. We have become so used to seeing whole aisles at supermarkets with sugary sweets, puddings, breads and drinks that it has become normal in this country. Yes we need sugars in our diet, but these can be found in all carbohydrate food stuffs that are not refined. The one big lifestyle change for all of us in this country would be to stop eating sugary, refined foodstuffs....join the change and cut the junk!

Client Testimonials

I personally will always attribute Julia's treatment to be the predominant factor in my extended period of remission from Crohn's disease. Julia is both a trusted friend and therapist and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking an alternative therapy.

My aches and pains in ankles, knees, hips and lower back disappear and my energy levels are given a very good boost too! It is 45 minutes or so of relaxation in a busy schedule. She keeps up to date with modern acupuncture techniques and has recently returned from a trip to China to experience these new techniques first hand. I cannot recommend Julia highly enough

I consider myself very fortunate to have found Julia's Acupuncture Practice 2 years ago, when I decided to try acupuncture for back problems. After a few treatments the problems were solved. Since I have every confidence in Julia's ability, each treatment is a very relaxing and worthwhile experience.
