Body Talk with special guest Helen Knox

My guest in the studio today was Helen Knox. Helen is a sexual health specialist,  she writes a monthly 5-6 page “column” for the main health magazine in the Eastern Caribbean, for Barbados’ Nation Corporation’s Better Health Magazine, which she started about 15 years ago!  She’s written 4 books and has an accredited training programme that she’s converting for e-learning at the moment; plus a very busy sexual health website –

Helen was very informative about sexual health issues, which don’t just affect the younger generation. With many older people divorcing or separating, and starting new relationships in their 40’s 50’s 60’s and 70’s plus, there is a whole new sector of society who need to be aware of the health risks of having a succession of different partners.

Although contraception may not be an issue for post menopausal ladies, there is still a need to use adequate protection. There is no such thing as being able to tell if your prospective partner is clean. Many different viruses can go undetected, but can easily be passed on by a carrier. Nobody is ever too old or too healthy to use a condom!

Helen’s two recent books, Sexplained One and Two, are a mine of information. If you have any concerns you can find just about anything in in them for both sexes. There are full colour pictures detailing various different STD’s, so if you are in any doubt you will certainly find an answer here. Both books are available to download, as well

This was a very informative interview and I’m hoping Helen will be able to join us again soon.

About Mel Watson

I have been with Phoenix FM since April 2007 - I came in to be interviewed about yoga just after the station launched in March, and enjoyed it so much that my own show - Body Talk - was born. On Body Talk I cover a different health topic every week and interview top healthcare profesionals including doctors, surgeons, healers, reflexologists and life coaches. I feel that all therapies have their place in today's world, and some of the more alternative methods can easily complement convential medicine. I have been a yoga and meditation teacher for over 20 years, am a qualified hypnotherapist, and I have also trained in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Emotional Freedom Technique, Reiki, Lucid Dreaming and Dream Therapy. I run regular classes at the Brentwood Centre as well as private one to one sessions. I've walked a spiritual path for most of my life and outside of radio and teaching I'm an Independent Celebrant. I officiate at Weddings, Naming Ceremonies, Spiritual Blessings and Funerals. You can find out more at
