Life Butler’s customised Happy Gut, Happy You retreat was eye-opening for all involved. During the course of the retreat we shared with industry partners a taste of how important it is to nourish what is being hailed as our ‘second brain’, the gut. We are excited to present this tailor-made programme, offering a combination of expert advice, nutrition guidance, and scientific analysis.
The humble mushroom is set to become not just one of the biggest new food and wellness trends but could have significant and powerful uses in medicine too. New studies are resulting in some surprising conclusions, with mushrooms now receiving global recognition for their health and healing qualities. Industries from food to wellness to beauty are taking notice, and mushrooms are even being hailed as beneficial in the treatment of degenerative brain diseases.
Our butlers often get asked insightful and thought-provoking questions, and they endeavor to find the answers. As part of this series, we are sharing some of these questions and shedding light on fascinating new topics, medical discoveries, and wellness themes.
Every object has a natural vibratory rate known as its resonance. Every single organ, bone, tissue, and system in our bodies are in a constant state of vibration. Put simply, when we are in good health, the body puts out an overall healthy vibrational harmony. When a frequency which obstructs our health sets up in a certain place in the body, it creates a disharmony, better known as disease.
At Life Butler, we believe passionately that a holistic approach to wellness is the best medicine life can offer. It is through combining all parts of our physical, mental and emotional selves that we can create a whole and fulfilled being. Our staff and butlers are always opening our minds and hearts to new wellness concepts, and recently one has captured our attention and inspiration: the idea of a wellness kitchen.
Sourdough bread is not a new food trend. It has been around for thousands of years, the traditional baking methods having been passed down through generations. Indeed, an 84-year-old Canadian woman was recently thrust into the international spotlight for being the proud owner of a 120-year-old sourdough starter. And it is the starter, which is the fundamental difference between sourdough and traditional bread recipes. It is also the secret to why sourdough bread is actually good for us.
The era of transformative travel is upon us. Just a couple of years ago, experiential travel was the industry’s hottest trend. People wanted more from their holidays than a hotel or spa. They were seeking a deeper connection with the destination they were visiting and hoping to experience new cultures, to interact with the locals and feel like more than just a gawking tourist. Now, that trend is rapidly morphing into something deeper and yet more personal: transformative travel.

There are few things in the world which exude luxury more than a superyacht. They are the epitome of relaxation and indulgence, pampering their owners and guests with top of the range décor and facilities, and the most impeccable standards in cuisine and service. What does it mean for this elite industry, then, when one of the biggest trends in wellness is sustainability? Here we take a look at the crucial link between environmental health and personal wellness, and how sustainability on superyachts is surprisingly very achievable.
Simon and Garfunkel said it perfectly when they sang The Sound of Silence. Yet even the melodic tune of the famous ballad adds to the constant thrum of noise in which we live today. It surrounds us at all times, the buzz and whir of machines, the hissing of a laptop, phones pinging, cars driving, people chattering, the television blaring. It is this nonstop hubbub of the modern world, of our everyday lives, which is the impetus for the newest wellness trend: silence.
