Spotlight on Dr Marilyn Glenville #Platinum Awards judge

We are so thrilled to have Dr Marilyn Glenville as one of our esteemed judges in the 2018 Janey Loves Platinum Awards for natural and organic products and services….We asked her 7 questions

Tell us a bit about your background, how did you come to be doing this work?

From an early age I was plagued with migraines, which caused me to go to bed in a darkened room, often vomiting and affecting the quality of my life.  Over the years I had been given numerous drugs, been checked for a brain tumour and also referred to a migraine clinic but to no avail.  In my early twenties, I had my first taste of natural medicine when I went to see an acupuncturist who along with the acupuncture suggested I look at my diet.  This was a revelation to me, to think that I what I was eating and drinking could be affecting my health; there was no connection in my mind about this at the time.   As the migraines disappeared this inspired me to study the effects of nutrition and diet on health.

I have now been in clinical practice over 35 years and as well as the clinical work I also give talks both to healthcare professionals and the public and have written 14 internationally best-selling books and the feedback, emails and letters of how changes in diet along with supplements has changed people’s lives around has been so inspiring.

How do you relax?

I love to dance.  I find it relaxing because I am listening to the music, my body is moving and I am not thinking.  I try to ‘dance as if no one is watching’.

What’s the most important health trend currently,  (or whats your current focus?)

It really is about getting people to realise that sugar and foods that are broken down into sugar quickly (eg white flour etc) are the major culprits behind most people’s health problems and that having low or no fat is not the issue.  There are many people who would think it healthy to buy a low fat fruit yogurt (even organic) when that pot of yogurt could contain eight teaspoons of added sugar.   When I think of many of the symptoms that women, especially, come into the clinic complaining about they include:  irritability, aggressive outbursts, palpitations, lack of sex drive, crying spells, dizziness, anxiety, confusion, forgetfulness, inability to concentrate, fatigue, insomnia, headaches and muscle cramps.  These are all symptoms due to fluctuating blood sugar caused by caffeine and sugar and also long gaps without eating.

What do you eat for breakfast?

An egg with tomato and might have a piece of toasted rye bread with it.

How much do you exercise?

I like to do some form of exercise every day.  If I am lecturing away it may only be walking.  When I am at home I go to Zumba 2 or 3 times a week and also one or two Body Balance classes which combines yoga and Pilates.

What’s your mantra ?  / favourite inspirational quote

Purpose by Jessica Huie MBE

Whats your purpose? I’ve written a lot about this, as I meet so many people who know there’s something more for them but they just can’t seem to locate it within the chaos and the overwhelm. They find themselves asking…is there something more? And do I count? I loved interviewing Jessica Huie MBE for Hay House radio recently; Her own journey to finding purpose is hugely inspirational. The book is called Purpose, Find your truth and embrace your calling. (Hay house)

You may know of her of course, she is the founder of JHPR, an award-winning PR agency, (she has worked with Simon Cowell and Meghan Markle no less) and she is the creator of Color Blind cards, a multi award winning multicultural greetings card company which drove an early conversation around the importance of ethnic representation in retail and became the first independent brand to secure a high street presence in Britain for multi-racial cards. The Evening Standard called her one of Britain’s ‘Most inspiring Entrepreneurs’ and she sits on Glamour magazine’s Power List as one of the UK’s most influential women

Jessica is brutally honest about the impact of caring for her father as he died, and the fact that despite having what most people would call the ‘perfect’ career and lifestyle, she realised she has been a control freak and a relentless workaholic perfectionist. Her life transformed when she realised that we are not merely our bodies, and the importance of reconnecting with our true selves.

Jessica has also done lots of work to help female entrepreneurs scale up their business and be authentic in their visibility – so you can see why I felt so connected!

I asked Jessica what our starting point should be if we find ourselves constantly busy and yet not ‘connected’ with ourselves, unhappy, unfulfilled and knowing there is something more.  She suggests that should start by recognising that we need to ‘positively disrupt’ our lives, be honest and real, don’t use the ‘PR’ spin.  The truth is we all use our ‘stories’ to excuse ourselves from moving forward, so many of have the ‘imposter syndrome’ and while the exterior  seems shiny and productive, underneath we are struggling and barely coping.

Jessica says we should ask ourselves what makes us happy? What lights us up?  It’s important because once we are aligned with our truth, that’s when we get into the flow.

The book opens with a quotation from Ernest Livingstone Huie (Jessica’s Dad)

‘Some of us on this earth are the candles and lanterns, flickering lights reassuringly pointing out the way in the bends within this vast funnel which is life on earth’.

So have you found your purpose?

Spotlight on Glynis Barber one of our Platinum Award judges

We are thrilled to have a team of amazing celebrity and expert judges for the Platinum Awards for natural products and services, here we shine the spotlight on actress and health and wellbeing pioneer Glynis Barber and ask her 7 Questions..

Tell  us a bit about your background, how did you come to be doing what you do in the health and well-being sector ?

‘Whats your big ‘WHY’

I’ve always done acting as my main job but over the years I became more and more interested in health and well being. It’s become a passion and 5 years ago I decided to become active in the field and started my agelessbyglynisbarber.com website.

How do you relax?

I’m quite capable of being a bit of a couch potato and flopping onto the sofa to watch TV after a busy day. However I also like to do exercise to properly unwind and de-stress. 

What do you focus on most in terms of health and wellbeing?

I’ve always been very active and exercised in some form or another and I think it’s stood me in very good stead. However I also focus on eating an anti-inflammatory diet and eat in a way to boost my energy.

Whats do you eat for breakfast ?

I don’t eat breakfast! Instead I exercise on an empty stomach and then eat afterwards. One of the best things you can do to burn fat and not sugar and activate your longevity genes.

How much do you exercise ?

I aim for 5-6 days a week. However the acting work does quite often get in the way of that.

If you could be Health Minister for a day what would you do ?

I would take food manufacturers to task and not let them get away with making foods that are so processed and full of sugar. Parts of the food industry have completely undermined health on a global scale.

What’s your mantra / favourite inspirational quote?

Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right. (Henry Ford)
