Gum Health

Good hygiene is only a part of preventing – or reversing – gum disease.

While hygiene helps keep periopathogens under control, nutrition helps restore the tissues that they wreck. limit foods that feed the harmful bacteria in your mouth (sugar, grain products and starchy foods, sodas etc) and increase your intake of more healthful foods that give you the nutrients you need to keep your gums healthy and the supporting jawbone strong.…

SPICES

MAKE YOUR OWN LAMB TAGINE SPICE

Instead of buying ready-made spices, often ‘cut’ with cornflour, laced with MSG and other undesirable things – not to even MENTION irradiation of the spices – why not make your own delicious blends? …

deficiency

WHAT DEFICIENCY COULD THESE SYMPTOMS INDICATE?

Just a little quiz to keep you on your toes!  While symptoms can be linked to all sorts of conditions, you will find a group taken together strongly indicate a specific deficiency.…

Berberine Complex

I think of all the products I’ve developed, this is one of the ones I am most proud of.

Some studies say when you take Berberine, it is advisable to take a break every 8 weeks. …

Nutrient - Vitamin K2

WHY YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE CALCIUM

Calcium’s great for bones, but not for arteries!  What you are told is that you need calcium for strong bones.  Yes, you do – but not in supplemental form, and not without vitamin K2 being present. …

Epidemic

Has it ever occurred to you that the time frame for an epidemic to occur is absolutely critical in determining public response?

 If rates of a disease went from 1 in 10 people to 1 in 3 people in only 10 years, there would be public outcry for scientists to determine the cause and to find a cure quickly. 

Thyroid 2

Absolutely!

Firstly, remember the inactive T4 hormone made by the thyroid needs to be converted by the liver. It is converted into the active form – T3. So if your liver is not in good nick, you may find your thyroid is somewhat sluggish.

In spite of the pandemic of people suffering from adrenal fatigue, there is still no official ‘diagnosis’ or even recognition in the medical community, whereas natural health practitioners recognize it as adrenal insufficiency or ‘burnout’ due to chronic stress.
collagen

Collagen declines with age, and for this reason research into collagen has exploded in the past few years.  I decided a some years ago to womble around and look at what’s available in the collagen line, and sadly I was flabbergasted at the additives and all I saw in the products on the shelves. 

Paprika

I’ve just brought in a pile of the most marvellous organic and conventional (but ALL non-irradiated) herbs and spices.  Why? Because I don’t trust those I buy off the shelf! Simple.  They could be, stale, ‘cut’ with cornflour or wheat starch, heaven knows what else, and what kind of conditions are they dried in? 

COVID-19

A lovely ICU nurse recently tested positive for Covid-19 around 8 July, even though she was wearing PPEs (my heart goes out to these brave heroes who care for those of us in ICU).

Cellulite

When it comes to cellulite it helps to be male – only 10% of men have cellulite compared to >85% of women. Life’s not fair.  The reason is the connective tissue in men’s thighs.

There are too many to mention (see earlier post), but it’s nice to know more of the amazing benefits of Vitamin D3 – SO important for respiratory function too.

Vitamin D deficiency

Vitamin D has been all over the news in the health community and even mainstream medicine over the past 6 months with Covid-19 front and centre. If you have good levels of vitamin D3, your chance of a healthy heart, immune system and ability to avoid or get through an infection quickly is vastly improved.

AV/AT

AV/AT has been found to be a powerful potential inhibitor of this horrible virus. We are watching decimate economies and lives globally. A paper published a few months ago gives enormous hope for natural treatment of viruses.

Black Friday Collagen

In the same way that eggs ‘bind’ cake ingredients together when you make a cake, so collagen is the ‘glue’ or binding agent which holds your cells together so effectively. Collagen enables your skin to move flexibly, and to bounce back into place when you press it.…

health fibre

There are 2 schools of thought about fibre, but let’s be clear – the human body is designed to use fibre. The more healthy fibre you get in your diet, the better your digestive system functions.

Maxifos powder in packaging

MaxiFOS is the ideal food for your microbiome. It is a PREbiotic, not a PRObiotic, although both are important. Prebiotic fibre resists digestion, instead heading to your colon where it creates those awesome energy-producing short chain fatty acids.

vitamin c

There really is NOTHING like Vitamin C, there really isn’t:

  1. Powerful Immune Stimulant
  2. Lowers Hypertension according to studies
  3. Fights Against Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
  4. Protects Against Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
  5. Fights Type 2 Diabetes
  6. Used in Cancer Prevention especially cancers of the oesophagus, oral cavity, stomach, and pancreas.

One of the most needed and highly beneficial supplements you can take – man, woman or child – is omega-3 fish oil (not flaxseed oil) for dozens of benefits. One of the most studied of all supplements for decades, it has a far-reaching effect on your mood, arteries, skin and longevity.

Joint pain

For probably 27 years or more I have recommended and used this particular anti-inflammatory for joints in my patients. It has consistently been enormously successful. It takes away pain all while healing joints.…

Thyroid

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck that produces hormones, which play a key role in regulating your heartbeat, breathing, and many other functions.

Spotting thyroid disease early is so important as caught early, treatment can prevent complications.
