Indoor palm is stunted

I would like to know what is wrong with my palm. I inherited it from my mother-in-law to be and it was in excellent condition when first received. However over the years in my care it has gradually shown that it seems to be stunted despite repotting and fertilising. It's not growing any new fronds but the fronds that were developing are now remaining closed and are starting to brown at the tips. The older, mature leaves have gone entirely brown - spotted dark brown in places even. The main trunk has thinned at the base and is brown too. I keep it in my bathroom which is quite a humid area but I thought this would be perfect for a palm. I don't over water it. Is there anything I can do to help it recover and start growing again? Many thanks

prixzie nectarine / peach

Hi - I bought a dwarf peach / nectarine tree, and the upper portion of the plant is as healthy as anything, even with small fruits forming, but the lower half of the tree seems to be losing yellowish small leaves, which are dropping at the rate of around 10 / day. Is this an indication of over / under feeding or other issues? thank you
