I have suffered badly with hayfever since I was a child. Beautiful Summer day’s have sometimes been ruined when I’m outdoors because my hayfever gets so bad.

Antihistamines were the main thing that helped […]Read More Hayfever & Pregnancy

I’m unfortunately in the 10-15% bracket of people in Ireland with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). My IBS is mild, but it’s there. I know what I can and can’t eat but sometimes I do eat something that will irritate me and knowing where the loo is on these occasions is a must. It’s a nuisance and my IBS […]Read More Alflorex Precision Biotics Giveaway
