Ketogenic diets do not work well for most menopausal women, especially as it unfortunately removes a lot of vegetables and greens from the diet by default. When you go into ketosis you go into mineral deficit as you excrete them faster than you can replace them, especially sodium, magnesium and potassium.…

We hear this so often. The moment women go into either menopause or peri-menopause, the weight starts piling on and all the wheels come off.
Yes, it’s a hormonal problem, that’s pretty obvious, but what can you do about it?
PCOS

PCOS:

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome:

Your medical practitioner may not have heard of it but the natural medicine community is RAVING about Berberine for polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Many women with PCOS have a very poor response to insulin creating weight gain and hormone imbalance.

Speed up your healing – dump gluten and increase protein

Lack of essential and bioavailable proteins are a major contributing factor to persistent illness especially in those with gluten sensitivity. Protein is the main ingredient your body uses to build immune antibodies as well as heal inflamed structural tissues and muscles.…

collagen

I get asked this almost every day, so I hope this helps someone.

If you are hesitant in pregnancy regarding anything at all, please chat to your doctor.
However, taking a pure collagen supplement is no different to consuming several bowls of bone broth a day.
worry

It can, according to a recent study.

There’s a pandemic on. Your job may be in jeopardy and life’s uncertain – we get that – but if it’s true that worry actively HARMS the brain, is it worth it?

Vitamin K2

While you might not be deficient in K2, not getting enough or being deficient can be a serious situation, to the point of developing heart disease or having a stroke.

It may not manifest with any symptoms either which can be difficult.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a really nasty skin disorder affecting the curves and features of the centre of the face. It is often called acne rosacea.

It’s generally characterised by one or more of the following:

• Light to heavy facial flushing (erythema) which can be transient or permanent
• Papules and pustules
• Telangiectasia – threadlike red lines or patterns that cross the face
• Rhinophyma – where the nose thickens and becomes bulbous

Women of 30-50 are most often victims of this condition, and find it frustrating and embarrassing to deal with for obvious reasons.…

We Have No Unnecessary Body Parts

We Have No Unnecessary Body Parts. You probably know that there is a commonly held belief that there are ‘bits’ in our bodies we don’t need. Like our tonsils and adenoids, spleen, appendix, gallbladder, womb and ovaries after menopause.…

Candida

Candida albicans is a yeast/fungus that is found in all of our digestive systems. When kept in balance with our good bacteria, Candida doesn’t cause any problems. But Candida is “opportunistic” – which means, given the opportunity, it can and will grow out of control.…

Joke

When you get your cholesterol panel done, ask for homocysteine too – it is a factor in blood clotting. You may know that homocysteine is a toxin which, when elevated, increases your risk of heart attack and strokes.…

Menopause

I hear this so often.  The moment women go into either menopause or peri-menopause, the weight starts piling on and all the wheels come off.  Yes, it’s a hormonal problem, that’s pretty obvious, but what can you do about it? …

Prebiotics

You’ve heard of PRObiotics – the beneficial bacterial population in our bodies, but what about PREbiotics?

Prebiotics are found in certain foods and are essential for increasing and feeding our healthy beneficial gut flora which go to make up our microbiome – that nine-tenths of who we are – but we simply do not get enough. …

Cellulite

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), states 1.7 million cosmetic surgery procedures were carried out in the U.S. alone in 2015 including over 222,000 liposuction procedures, many of which were performed to remove cellulite.…

Hormones

I see SO many women struggling with this problem, I thought I’d address it.  We all know proper nutrition and lifestyle is key, but there are certain hormones that diminish in menopause, and others that kind of get out of control. …

Soy

The Problem with Soy

Are you using soy milk thinking it’s healthier than dairy, or perhaps taking isoflavones for menopausal symptoms – or even eating tofu as a “healthy” alternative to animal protein?…

N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)

The Benefits of N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)

NAC is one of my personal can’t-do-without supplements and I’ll tell you why.  As a chronic asthmatic and sinus sufferer of note my entire life, I decided to use this about 8 years ago to thin the mucous (asthmatics have very thick mucous in the lungs making it difficult to breathe) in my lungs – but my main reason was to thin the mucous in the sinuses as I’d virtually beaten asthma 25 years ago.…

Amazing Glutamine

There are incredible health benefits to taking the Amazing Glutamine (or L-Glutamine) powder.

As the most abundant amino acid in your bloodstream making up to 35% of the amino acid nitrogen in your blood, and as a building block of protein your body uses glutamine in large amounts.…
