About Sneha

I am a pharmacist and homeopath and have advised people for many years on issues to do with health, weight and well being. My role has involved navigating my way through the burdensome and sometimes conflicting volume of information and advice from health experts about with what constitutes a healthy diet, what foods to avoid if you want to lose weight and the importance of exercise in weight control and maintaining health.

That's what has inspired me to write this blog and share my experiences in the hope that it inspires others to find their own path to achieving their health and beauty goals!

Breakfast on the Go

I don’t remember that!

I’ve said this far more often in the last few years than in the previous forty! Regrettably, friends, it’s not just after a few (a lot) glasses of wine. The mind is not as sharp as it once was. I’ve admitted … Continue reading
