How To Avoid Autoimmune Disease

How To Avoid Autoimmune Disease – Part 1 It seems that these days there is a real epidemic of immunity problems, so knowing how to avoid autoimmune disease, and the things that are most likely to cause it, is becoming more and more important. We remember when growing up several decades ago that you hardly ever heard of older relatives or family friends having health issues that were autoimmune diseases. In fact, one hardly heard of cancers (except lung cancer from smoking), diabetes, irritable bowel disease and other diseases that are so prevalent today. Back then it was extremely rare Continue Reading →

Coconut Oil Treats Dementia & Alzheimer's

Coconut Oil Treats Dementia & Alzheimer’s You have probably heard of the benefits of taking virgin cold pressed organic coconut oil for blood lipids, correcting cholesterol and losing weight, but did you know that coconut oil also treats dementia & Alzheimer’s?

We have just listened to this doctor, Mary Newport MD, being interviewed on the “Awakening from Alzheimer’s” free docuseries currently available at this link. She Continue Reading →

Avoid one of these and eat the other to lower risk of dying Dietary Fat Is Associated With Lower Death Risk No, that is not a misprint. Despite dietary fat having been demonised for over 40 years and the consumption of whole grains (aka carbohydrates) having been praised and touted as our health saviour, it is really gratifying to see that science is now saying that dietary fat is associated with lower death risk and that high carbohydrate intake is associated with higher total mortality risk. Isn’t it great when the contrary position you have held for many years is Continue Reading →

Why An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away We have all heard the phrase “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but have you ever stopped to think if that is true and if so why? “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” seems logical if one is thinking along the lines that fresh organic fruit and vegetables are good for you and should be encouraged instead of eating processed foods, but is there more to it than that. Is there a Scientific Explanation? Turns out there is. Aside from the enzymes, polyphenols and flavonoids in apples, Continue Reading →

Do Hair Dryers Affect Health?

Do hair dryers affect health

Do Hair Dryers Affect Health? Seems like a silly question, doesn’t it? How could appliances as innocuous as hair dryers affect health. Just because we have been using certain electrical appliances for several decades now does not mean that they are all perfectly safe (excluding electrocution risk) and have no impact on our health in the long term. This is the same for the processed foods and beverages on sale, the mobile phones and tablets, the flame-retardants in furniture, cars and clothing, and the assault on our vegetables and fruits with insecticides, fungicides, fertilisers, GMOs, and on our meats with hormones Continue Reading →

Best Multi-Vitamin Supplement

Best Multi-Vitamin Supplement There is a huge market in vitamins and supplements, and so many different brands and products that it is really difficult for the average person to decide what, if any, they need to take and certainly impossible to determine which is the best multi vitamin supplement for them. In an ideal world no one would need to take any supplements because their balanced dietary intake would ensure that they received all the vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and amino acids that they required. But we do not live in anything like an ideal world when it comes Continue Reading →

Best Natural Gut Health Support We are often asked, “What is the best natural gut health support?” by people experiencing gastro-intestinal issues. These issues could include general food intolerances, bloating, gas, cramping, irritable bowel disease, Crohn’s, gluten sensitivity, Celiac disease, reflux or irregular bowel movements. These are just some of the symptoms that people will associate with their GI tract, but the truth is that problems caused by negative interactions with food can cause a great many more diseases and symptoms, which, because they are not located in GI tract, people do not realise that they are closely linked with Continue Reading →

Importance of Food

Importance of Food This week we were browsing through our local free magazine on the Sunshine Coast (My Weekly Preview), and came across an article about the growth of the region and the careers needed here in the future. The main area of employment seeming to be in medical and allied services. The magazine kindly published a list of medical careers and specialties that today’s school population might want to focus on. “What has this got to do with the importance of food?” we hear you ask. On scanning through the list, which is reprinted below, we thought to ourselves Continue Reading →
