Welcome to Impact!
I am delighted you are reading this page and hope that you will find the contents of the blog and forum useful and practical.
I hope it will enrich your knowledge and stimulate your learning about our body, nutrition,our planet, science and health.
I also look forward to engaging with you in productive discussions regarding any of these topics and many more in the blog and forum!
“Impact” blog and forum were started as a project that connects my original education (BSc in Human Nutrition) with skills, knowledge and experience acquired to date (including in the field of teaching).
I am not a Covid-19 expert, and I guess no one is at present as we are still learning about this virus every day as we go along, and our understanding of it, its effects and behaviour in the human body increases with time.
I do however have a keen interest in microbiology and infectious diseases, and therefore I have tried and I am trying to present the content about infectious diseases in an engaging way.
I hope you enjoy my musings about the current Covid-19 situation in the world and find other infectious diseases content interesting.
You are more than welcome to share your opinion or thoughts either in the blog or forum, and if you wish, criticise me.
What am I trying to create?
A place for like-minded people to communicate about health, nutrition, infectious diseases, science and nature.
A place to learn.
A place to share.
A place to draw your inspiration from.
The forum created includes sections on nutrition and weight loss, women’s health, mental health, infectious diseases, disasters and social issues as well as pet stories.
The “Disasters World” section is about the disasters that happened around the world and had negative consequences on the environment, ecology and nature.
I believe we must be responsible citizens of this Earth as the pandemic has made it possible for everyone to feel how fragile our worlds are and how easily they can be shaped into completely different realities by the events of nature around us.
Why “Pet Stories”? Pets are a part of nature and they are our companions and friends. I personally fell in love with a homeless kitten in India almost 6 years ago and took the struggle to bring her to the UK to live with me.
You can read the story of her relocation to the UK and a guide really on how to relocate your pet to the UK here.
Why nutrition and weight loss? Well, as a nutritionist and published author in this field, I am open and willing to share my knowledge with people and promote their health and positive lifestyle changes.
Why “Women's Health”? Well, it is simple, I am a woman and happy to be one!
I am also a strong believer that all changes must start from ourselves.
All crises are a stepping stone on a way to something bigger. What seemed to be a “disaster” at some stage of our lives turns out to be a great “blessing” later.
Knowledge can save. It can save your own life but it can save many more lives.
When I was staying in India, a stray dog bit me. It was almost 6 years ago. At that time I was in touch with one lady who had a blog dedicated to pets which was of very much help and use to me at that stage when I was in the process of gathering information about how to relocate my own pet from India to the UK.
She advised me to go to the hospital the following day after I was bitten by a stray dog and ask for the rabies vaccination. Rabies can be fatal if left untreated. So I followed her advice.
This particular event not only made me aware of such an infectious disease and sparked my interest in this field but also her timely advice potentially saved my life. If it wasn't for her advice, I might not be alive today and won't be typing this now. Truly, knowledge is life-saving!
Sharing knowledge and taking action for improving awareness about certain issues in society is vital if we are to make changes in this world for the better.
