Changing the diet industry "for good"; we believe that restrictive dieting "for profit" isn't a lasting solution; that being kept in fear of food isn't compassionate. We have recently received a grant from The Big Lottery Fund and become part of the Lloyds Bank School for Social Entrepreneurs. Nutriri* has been meeting (in person) since January 2016; we are developing an online course and community to promote positive body image and conscious eating. Most importantly we support each other positively without judgement; our needs are different, our journeys individual - we don't have to travel alone!
Up to 2.7 million people in the UK live with Fibromyalgia (Fibro) & the awareness of this condition remains very low. Fibromyalgia Action UK (FMAUK) is a registered charity raising awareness & making evidence-based information about Fibromyalgia easily accessible. Fibromyalgia Action UK uses HealthUnlocked to provide those living with Fibromyalgia a way to communicate with others & share their experiences. We have community volunteers who also live with Fibro that work hard at maintaining a supportive & friendly community atmosphere. Many members post about diagnosis, research findings, treatments & all things Fibro plus we have regular polls, which starts an interesting discussion within the community.

The primary aim of the Trust is to initiate Clinical Trials of Low Dose Naltrexone. Whilst working to raise funds for trials, we have helped over 16,000 people to obtain LDN from a General Practitioner or Neurologist, either through the National Health Service or by private prescription. We have also been able to help people, not just in the UK but in countries throughout Europe, as well as USA, Canada, West Indies, Australia, New Zealand, and others. By using this website and from our downloadable newsletters, you will be able to read the stories of some of these people. We have helped many people with MS, Crohn's, IBS, ME and Cancer to name a few. The use of LDN is spreading. Our ultimate goal is for everyone to be prescribed LDN globally for all conditions where LDN could be of benefit
Developed by physiotherapists. EXi will help support you on your physical activity journey. The award-winning, NHS approved app curates a physical activity plan for you, based on your current health status. Where you’re at in your health journey is where EXi starts. Your plan will be set at the appropriate level and graduated over 12 weeks. If you have any combination of 23 chronic conditions, your plan will be adjusted accordingly. EXi asks for your health status and physical activity habits and builds a daily activity plan for you. EXi gently increases your personalised activities and intensity at your pace, based on the latest science. Weekly goals start at just 3 sessions of 10 minutes of low intensity activity per week. You will have access to EXi's library of physical activity and workouts set at the appropriate intensity level, or you can use EXi to log your own activities (EXi recommends a health device, such as an Apple Watch in order to understand your intensity levels even better). Research shows even the smallest amount of physical activity, set at the right intensity, can make a huge difference to our health.
