Adult and community learning

I recently came across a flyer which Islington are promting. They are running a half day workshop on: eating well and a free cookbook increase your physical activity, reduce stress and looking after your heart. The workshop is free for all the islington residents and it would be so nice if something similar can be set for Barnet Residents.

health retreat

can anyone recommend a good health retreat in Europe. I wanted to go for 5 to 6 nights for detox and generally re-jeuvenate. There are so many out there and would be really nice to know if someone has had a good experience. I was looking at the SHA clinic in Spain but its very expensive and more for mediacl reasons not just for detox. Any suggestions really welcome.

Group for vegetarians and vegans

Hello everyone. I live in High Barnet and have recently turned vegetarian. I have joined a group that meets in central London. It would be nice to meet locally on a weekday for a vegeterian/vegan meal. Anyone else in Barnet who is vegeterian/vegan and wants to form a meetup group?

Women over 40 years of age is funded by the NHS for one IVF cycle and women under 40 years old is funded by the NHS for three IVF cycle. The success rate over all decreases with the increase of age. Shouldn't the over 40s be funded for more cycles as they have a lower success rate ?

TMJ pain, jaw clicking, jaw pain!

I have been diagnosed with TMJ but I haven’t had any scans of my jaw or any investigations into it, I have been given a night guard for my teeth to stop me grinding or clenching my jaw at night and told to do some jaw exercises which haven’t helped so far. It just seems to get better and then worse again. Has anyone had TMJ and cured it? If so how? Or is this a lifelong issue I’m going to have to deal with. Thanks in advance.
