Mango Fitness Newsletter 2019

2018 has been an incredibly busy, intense and inspirational year for us.

It began with a seminar in London, led by Cambridge Nutritional Sciences concerning a new test called the Adrenal Function Profile. This test is very useful in assessing (and managing) stress levels as well as the hormones concerned.

In June, MangoFitness attended the Functional Sports Nutrition conference, which we have been attending for a long time. Specific supplements in sports and why athletes require supplements was the main subject of the conference this time.

MangoFitness cooperation with healthcare company Invivo Clinical continues and gets more exciting every year!

The highlight lecture for 2018 was Dr David Brady’s seminar organised by Invivo Clinical The Integrative Approach to Autoimmune Disease, in which the GI microbiome, disorders associated with dysbiosis and intestinal hyperpermeability were all addressed.

The GI-MAP test featured as one of the most specific and detailed tests available to manage certain autoimmune conditions.

MangoFitness are already successfully using GI-MAP test for their clients for almost 3 years!

Another amazing presentation, hosted by Invivo Clinical, which MangoFitness was invited to was Meeting of Minds centred around advancements in the assessment of the gastrointestinal microbiome, GI MAP 2.0 stool test specification / newer, updated version/.

 “DNA sequencing used in this test allows for superior sensitivity and specificity in the detection of fifteen of the most common causes of gastroenteritis as well as other chronic diseases” (Invivo Clinical)

Additionally, new Designs for Health products were presented during both seminars, among which featured advanced probiotics, with specific strains in mind and superior bioavailability.

The “Bio.me” evening from Invivo Clinical was a fabulous event about a new polyphenolic range of products designed “with human ecology in mind” and “the beautiful synergy between humans, microbes, plants and fungi” (Invivo Clinical).

One of the most interesting products for my clients is Bio.Me femme, one of a range of five Phytobiotics, specifically for the female microbiome, which as a Health and Wellness Practitioner I use in certain personalised protocols already.

Towards the end of the year, I attended the Olympia Beauty Expo, where I discovered new range of bodycare  – Organic skincare products from Scandinavia, which become very popular among our clients already!!

I was also lucky enough to attend an event in Kingston, led by one of the U.K.’s leading nutritionist’s, Christine Bailey who recently released her new book My Kids Can’t Eat That! In accompaniment to the book’s release, the seminar touched upon nutrient deficiencies in children, the diverse reactions to certain foods and most importantly the differences between food allergies and food sensitivities.  Lifestyle changes and new recipes been suggested too.

Changing the Game in Breast Cancer Prevention was yet another insightful seminar Mango Fitness attended. Dr Eccles, who presented the seminar, addressed breast cancer risks and different options for breast cancer screening. One of the most efficient of these screenings is medical infrared thermal imaging/breast thermography. This seminar not only highlighted the varieties of screenings available but also how important the specificity of each situation can be in finding the appropriate solution for every individual. This of course includes testing and supplements also.

2018 also marked the year that Mango Fitness joined the Bee Green ethical directory, with Bee Green Lifestyle magazine. All our protocols will now be composed mostly of organic, ethical, and ecologically friendly products and supplements where possible.

Additionally, Mango Fitness is proud to be an advocate and member of the Biodynamic association, promoting an ecologically-conscious approach to healing that is founded on nature’s own rhythms and remedies.

All in all, 2018 ended with a bang! Food Matters Live was Mango Fitness’s final exposition of the year boasting an impressive array of innovating minds.

Professor Christine Edwards of Glasgow University presented one of the most insightful lectures of the day concerning maternal and infant health and wellbeing. I also discovered Wellness Lab whose amazing Probiotic Superfood Powders Mango Fitness now stock and are very excited to bring to my clients in 2019 full series of them.

Thank you to everyone who made 2018 for what it was! Mango Fitness looks forward to the rest of 2019 hopefully, excited for the upcoming opportunities to enrich ourselves with the latest research, technology and products! A happy and healthy 2019 to our readers 😊

Love Power Plate training !

4. Food Intolerance Testing certification with CNS company was done while ago, but work with Invivo Clinical & ZRT labs, was started around 2 years ago and successfully developing further.
Continuous training , seminars, webinars with Invivo Clinical has helped to start new tests last year and add new in 2017 too- GI- MAP stool test , Omega Index profile and new set of tests for women, who are planning or already pregnant.

Some of the new tests been a great success as they helped those, who followed strict individual protocol designed for them and precise supplemetation prorammes!

As you already realised, MangoFitness slowly transforming in to a real Wellness & Nutrition brand ,rather then fitness training with nutrition advice only.

I believe, we have to- earlier or later acknowledge – your lifestyle through all your years, everyday habbits, nutrition , supplementation and your genes are most important part of a happy, healthy, sustainable way for your body to adapt itself to anything it can face.

And MangoFitness main strategy – to use Naturopathic Nutrition, Testing, Right Fitness Regime for you and your child should help you to achieve your goals on any level!!

North West has a more documented, more glamorous, more bizarre life than most other toddlers. For example, this week it was revealed that North’s downtime is significantly more regimented than the average two-year-old’s because as well as being a tap dance and ballet aficionado, she has a personal trainer.

As a toddler, she obviously doesn’t have a whole lot of autonomy when it comes to her hobbies and routines, and so her personal training sessions are often tacked on to her mother’s workouts; apparently, Kim Kardashian “has one of her guys work out with North at the end of her session, once or twice a week”, a “source” tells Radar.

“They teach her fun stuff like stretches and other basic aerobics, nothing strenuous.” Is stretching fun? What does basic aerobics mean for a two-year-old? Is a squishy toddler even capable of strenuous activity? Do babies sweat, actually, now that I come to think of it? So many questions… Read more »

“Talented kids are everywhere. We just have to develop the means to identify them and then expose them to well-planned and methodical training.” Bompa .1985.

How do I choose the right exercise for my child?

The modern life and hectic lifestyle of many families nowadays is increasingly made up of driving, TV, video games, mobile phones, laptops and tablet computers , all of which add to the growing rate of sedentary lifestyles and health issues attached to that. Then there is the increasing consumption of convenience food which, more often than not, lacks the array of nutrients we require.

Busy parents are finding less and less time for recreation and making the right activity choices for their children.

And if they are not active themselves, it becomes even harder to encourage and inspire their offspring to adopt healthy, active habits. When discussing children’s health these days , people frequently mention words like stress, obesity, heart disease. The reason is that fitness is far from a  priority in the everyday lives of many children.

How to decide which exercise and activity, is right for your child and how to fit it into your everyday schedules…

  1. The most important thing to remember is – your child is an individual and unique, so what works for other children might not  necessarily engage your child.
  2. Genetics and your personal example does matter!

A8418886Full name: Yelena Paul
Job title: Founder of Mango Fitness / Personal Trainer & Nutritional Adviser
Town: Berkshire

Tell us a bit about your background and what led you into complementary medicine?

I have a masters degree in PE and a diploma in Physical Rehabilitation Exercises from Russian State University of Physical Education, Sport, Youth & Tourism, and have been on various certification programmes in the UK. Since I was 7-8 years old, I’ve been interested in competitive athletics. My father is a competitive athlete in modern pentathlons, so I used to watch him compete and prepare for competitions, hence why I have developed my deep curiosity for the industry. I could see how nutrition and the right supplements helped my father (and later, myself) to achieve a higher potential.

 

What do you love most about your work?

I love the constant learning and challenges in my career.  Read more »

Pregnancy is a very special time in any women’s life. Hormonal changes will take place before and during pregnancy, which will reflect on how the woman will feel during exercises too.

Being a mother myself I found that training before, during and after the pregnancy helped me to understand a lot; especially how a woman’s body can respond and adjust to all changes within that time frame.

I qualified as a pre/post natal gym trainer more than 10 years ago. Since then I’ve trained a lot of women with different pregnancies and deliveries consequently teaching me many things. Read more »
