WELCOME TO THE DELGLYN CLINIC

Hello, my name is Dr Nikki Delglyn (Ostm) and I run my own Osteomyology clinic in Great Barton, just outside Bury St Edmunds, I work with several UK charities as well as being mum to two sporty girls and love to keep fit and eat well.

In my clinic I help to look after people from all different walks of life from retirees to professional sports athletes, from mums to children; from high impact sports injuries sustained in Rugby & American Football (go Bury Saints!), post trauma rehabilitation (work & vehicle related) to sprains & tweaks.

Chances are I can help most people and if I can’t I’ll be honest and straight. Trust & integrity is very important to me & my aim is to facilitate a quick and effective recovery from injury so my patients may return to sport, the active lifestyle they love or quite simply able to get back to work.

My website is here to give you lots of information about me and my Clinic, but also is a great place to find some up-to-the minute health, fitness and wellness articles, which I hope you’ll find interesting.

Please don’t forget to follow me on Face Book and Twitter, where I post some great items on keeping healthy and fit!

I look forward to linking up!

I can’t believe the results I’ve seen with Nikki’s help! I feel great with just a few changes in my lifestyle. Thank you!

A Miracle Supplement for Women and Peri/menopause?

Is this the new anti-ageing, peri-menopausal supplement of the future?  What’s all the fuss about Alpha Lipoic Acid?  Here’s what I found out about this wonder compound and why I’ve decided that it’s part of my daily nutritional plan. When it comes to women’s health from teenage years right through our peri- menopause and beyond, a varied diet full of colour is an absolute must, and that’s natural colour from fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are full of antioxidants that are a fabulous source of nutrients that counteract the natural deterioration of cells within our body and organic, raw varieties are the best.  I’ve noticed over the years that CoQ10 and alpha lipoic acid (ALA) have had some very positive write-ups and that’s not a surprise as it offers many health benefits.  It promotes healthy aging, organ function, heart health, brain and nervous system health, just what we women need as we get older.  It also encourages our body’s network of antioxidants become stronger by boosting cellular production of other antioxidants and antioxidant enzymes. Wow!  That’s a real bonus.  Here, I will take you through an in-depth look at alpha lipoic acid and all that it has to offer women all over the world and especially those of us going through our second spring, peri-menopause. Top 10 Benefits of Alpha Lipoic Acid Encourages normal thyroid hormone levels Support healthy nerves Encourages healthy skin Promotes normal heart health Protects muscles from exercise- related stress Protects the liver Promotes a strong brain and sharp memory Promotes graceful aging Maintains a healthy blood glucose level Supports healthy body weight What Is... read more

The Benefits of Raspberries

The Benefits of Raspberries Did you know that the raspberry is the edible fruit of a multitude of plants related to the rose family?  They are natures “sweets” with many nutritional benefits especially for us women going through peri-menopause.  The humble raspberry ranges in colour from the popular richest red and black varieties to the pale yellow or golden ones, which my parents grow in their back garden.  Each colour of raspberry has it’s own unique composition of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  The lighter the colour the less anthocyanin content, which is the blue, violet or red pigment found in the berries. I love raspberries to brighten up a salad or to top my yoghurt or porridge in the morning, but not only do they provide extra colour and taste they are packed with fabulous nutritional benefits., some of which I have highlighted below.  Eating a variety of fruits and vegetables has long been associated with a reduced risk of many adverse health conditions and can provide an easy way of maintaining a healthy weight, which you will read many times throughout this article. If you eat a diet full of plant foods, which could include raspberries, science would suggest that you are less likely to be at risk of developing obesity, diabetes and heart disease all of which are valuable for peri-menopausal and menopausal women.  Apart from helping you feel good, eating a variety of fruit and vegetables can also promote healthy skin, increase energy levels and help maintain a lower weight, which as we age can soon creep up on us. Just take-a-look at the other benefits... read more

The Benefits of Co-Enzyme Q10

As we enter our 3rd Age women can encounter some really odd symptoms, sometimes bizarre and sometimes damn debilitating, but what is happening to us is a natural process which can be made easier with the right nutrition, exercise, lifestyle changes and supplementation.  Have a read of my story …. I hope it will be of help and interest and of course i’ll keep you posted as to my results! Over the past few months, like many of you, I’ve been suffering migraine type headaches, which, as a newbie to this, has been a shock.  Two days a month of sheer hell!  If you’re a migraine sufferer you will know it’s debilitating and renders you to either the bed or sofa with a cold flannel over your eyes, in the dark to try and sleep it off.   How impractical is that when you have to try and work, look after the children, older members of the family and the house? Eventually, enough was enough and I discussed my symptoms with my Doctor as I felt that it could be hormone or nutrition related.  My full blood tests are due to take place in October, which could potentially mean “tweaking” my hormone treatment, however in the meantime I decided to try his Q-Cell product for 4 months and see if it makes a difference. Even though I eat a varied diet and believe that most of our nutritional needs should come from what we eat, sometimes we need to give nature a helping hand, and using supplements just bridges the gap and ensures our bodies get enough of the right... read more

How to get your 5-a-day

Fruit and vegetables – how to get five-a-day Given the many health benefits of eating more fruits and vegetables, we should all be trying to meet the government’s ‘five-a-day’ target.  I try and encourage everyone to eat at least 5 and even 7 or 9 portions per day!  For women it’s so important as we go through our reproductive lifecycle to eat a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, pulses and grains, as they help maintain our natural hormone balance and protect us from heart disease, osteoarthritis and keep our brain functioning well. So why is it that most UK adults are falling short by around one portion a day, with only 8% of teenagers and about a third of adults actually managing to meet the target?  Why aren’t we eating enough? Perhaps people are still confused about how many portions they need a day, what counts as a portion, or even what constitutes a fruit or vegetable?  The following information will hopefully help you understand a little bit better, what you should be eating and how to get your minimum of five-a-day. Why are fruits and vegetables so beneficial? As well as tasting great, fruits and vegetables are incredibly versatile, packed with essential vitamins and minerals, a variety of phytochemicals (naturally occurring plant substances) and fibre that are vital for good health. Many of these nutrients also act as powerful antioxidants, protecting the body from harmful free radicals (found in pollutants) that can cause disease. As I said above, fruits & vegetables are vital for women’s health and studies have shown that people who eat plenty of fruit and veg... read more
