Beating Post Natal Depression With A Great Big Pole

Beating Post Natal Depression With A Great Big Pole
I started pole originally in May 2010 when my daughter was coming up for 9 months old; I was suffering horribly with Post Natal Depression and had been signed off work for some time. It is impossible to explain the horrid, dark vacuum of depression so I am not going to attempt it; if you have been there then no explanation is needed, if you haven’t then none will suffice. After repeated trips to...

But did you know that what you put inside your body has just as much — if not more — impact on how healthy your skin, hair and nails look?
