I have just read your blog ” Sort yourself out”.

Do you remember the last time that you were in Eastbourne and you said that you would sort me out? It was just after our Argentinian Tango practice in my Private Rooms.

Would you agree to come to Eastbourne and sort me out again?

Tiffany, have you lost your mind ?

No !!!

Sort Yourself Out

I have just read a book by Don Miguel Ruiz called “The Four Agreements”.

It is 140 pages long and costs about a tenner.  It is one of those “Improve your Life books” – Most of which get bought but never read.

Well, here you go……. You do not have to buy this one or even read it because these are the four agreements (167 words, by the way) that he manages to spread over 140 pages.

So, read them, use them and you will become a better person.

It is the Law.


Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.


Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dreams. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.


Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.


Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to being sick. Under any circumstances, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

Stuart. Your article about Niacin has just made me have a big Flush. All through my body !! I think that I need some of your Vitamins. My Dance Classes are finished for half term. Do you think that you could come to Eastbourne and make me relax? I would be ever so grateful.

Stuart writes: Tiffany. You don’t need Vitamins. You need locking up. I will be contacting Facebook to have you BANNED. !!


Panick Attacks ? Pffff….

Niacin & Anxiety

Niacin is the fancy word for Vitamin B-3.

Niacin has a long history of treating the symptoms of anxiety and depression, although it is not a cure for either condition

For some people, anxiety becomes excessive, difficult to control and massively affects day-to-day living and taking Niacin can help.

It helps me massively after suffering from mild to chronic anxiety and panic attacks over many years.

I take 500 mg per day and “LOVE THE FLUSH” – Read on……!!

Anxiety Symptoms

Anxiety has many emotional and physical triggers, although it is usually seen as a collection of symptoms, including nervousness, gastric issues, increased heart rate, high blood pressure, panic attacks and insomnia.

A significant cause of anxiety is chronic over-stimulation of your nervous system, which triggers the “fight-or-flight” response and floods the body with hormones and chemicals, such as adrenaline.

Perhaps most important with respect to anxiety, Niacin is an antidote to adrenaline, which is often over-produced in those experiencing anxiety.

Niacin and Anxiety

Anecdotally, it is claimed that Niacin reduces anxiety and depression, while promoting calmness and better sleep. It is possible that niacin’s ability to increase blood flow, reduce blood pressure, eliminate excess adrenaline and regulate hormones could contribute to feelings of relaxation in those who are stressed.

Niacin is Vitamin B-3, one of the water soluble B-complex vitamins.

Properties include:

  • The ability to help you naturally relax and get to sleep more rapidly at night.
  • Help reduce harmful cholesterol levels in the bloodstream.
  • It is one of the best substances for elevating high density lipoprotein HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol).
  • The ability to greatly reduce anxiety and depression.
  • Dilates blood vessels and creates a sensation of warmth, called a“niacin flush.” This is often accompanied with a blushing of the skin. It is this “flush” or sensation of heat that indicates a temporary saturation of niacin.


When you flush, you can literally see and feel that you’ve taken enough Niacin. The idea is to take just enough Niacin to have a slight flush. This means pinkness about the cheeks, ears, neck, forearms.

  • A slight niacin flush should end in about ten minutes or so.
  • If you take too much niacin, the flush may be more pronounced and longer lasting.
  • Large doses of Niacin on an empty stomach may cause profound flushing.
  • With each additional dose, the intensity of the flush decreases and should become a minor nuisance rather than an irritation. Niacin should always be taken immediately after eating.I have found that the best way to control the flushing sensation is to start with very small amounts of niacin and gradually increase the dose until you notice the first flush. Start with 25 mg three times a day after each meal. Continue to increase each dosage by 25 mg per day until your flush occurs.

    It is difficult to predict a saturation level for Niacin because each person is different.

If you flush on a low dose, you don’t need much niacin. If flushing doesn’t happen until a high level, then your body is obviously using the higher amount of the vitamin B3 (Niacin)

As a flush indicates saturation of Niacin, it’s better to repeat the flushing, just very slightly, to make sure that you are getting enough.

Don’t let the flush surprise you. You should remember that Niacin does that, and you can monitor and control it easily.

To get to sleep sooner at night, Niacin can be taken to saturation at bedtime, too. You might be asleep before you even notice the flush.

An important point is that Niacin is a vitamin, not a drug. It is not habit forming. Niacin does not require a prescription because it is that safe. It is a nutrient that everyone needs each day. Different people in different circumstances need different amounts.

Niacin tablets may be bought at many chemists or health food shops. Tablets typically are available in 50 mg, 100 mg, or 250 mg dosages.
If a Niacin tablet is taken on an empty stomach, a flush will occur (if it is going to occur at all) within about 20 minutes. If Niacin is taken right after a meal, a flush may be delayed.

In fact, the flush may occur long enough afterwards that you forgot that you took the Niacin!

Non Flushing Niacin
There is a non flushing version of Vitamin B-3 called Niacinamide.

There is nothing wrong with Niacinamide,. This form of vitamin B-3 is found in multiple vitamins and B-complex preparations.

Niacinamide does not cause a flush at all.

In my opinion, it is less effective in inducing relaxation and calming you down.

Niacinamide also does not significantly lower cholesterol. This is an important thing to remember when deciding what to use.
