The 2nd trimester: weeks 13 to 27 (or s it 26? 28?)

There’s always some inconsistency when it comes to the definition about the end of the second trimester… some entities claim that it goes up to 26 weeks, another 27, 28… well, I just decided to follow the guide that seems to be more aligned with the end of the 6th month (and really, does it really matter that much?!).

My first trimester: what to expect & natural care

My first trimester: what to expect & natural care

How did I know/suspect i was pregnant? Tiredness, nausea and “mental fog”; none of these symptoms are familiar, so I knew something had changed!

Holistic Medicine: the right paradigm

I still find this is a blurry area when I am discussing medical approaches, and quite honestly, I even get confused at times with the so called “titles” for each medicine model… it is important to know “who is who” – conventional, complementary or functional medicines – and make informed decisions when it comes to manage our health and healthcare.

Is Circular Economy the Solution for a Sustainable Future?

A circular economy is an economic system aimed at minimising waste and making the most of resources.
