Tools for Pre-Menopause

In the Western world the menopause is often portrayed as an illness when in fact it is simply a natural transition that women experience with age. It is a gradual process and in the years leading up to the menopause several things happen: your egg supply diminishes; hormone production in your ovaries reduces and you stop ovulating each month. These changes can cause hormone related symptoms but the good news is that there are many perfectly natural ways to help support you through the transitional period and bring your body back into balance. Read on to learn more about symptoms and […]

Benefits to eating Organic food

There are benefits to eating organic food suggests research* recently published by the European parliament, after they commissioned a review of existing scientific evidence about the impact of organic food on human health. The benefits mainly arise because the pesticides in conventionally grown food are more dangerous than was previously thought, causing damage to the human brain. “At least 100 different pesticides are known to cause adverse neurological effects in adults, and all of these substances must therefore be suspected of being capable of damaging developing brains as well” the report states. These adverse effects are likely to be lasting and in […]

Guidelines for eating well

‘Eat Food… not too much… mostly plants…’ Michael Pollan, In Defence of Food. Your body wants nutrients and fuel to function effectively. Foods that are low in nutrients include; sugar, alcohol, refined grains, standard vegetable oils, skimmed milk and low fat versions of real foods. Try to think about food in terms of nutrients, not calories. Spinach, blueberries and red peppers are all highly nutritious, but so are butter, eggs and steak. Grains, fats, nuts, meat, cheese, fish and eggs are all nutrient dense, but also calorie dense so fill yourself up with nutritious vegetables and provide satisfaction with smaller amounts […]

Stress

Stress is a word that we use all the time and it means different things to different people. Stress actually means the way that our bodies respond to stressful events, by an activation of the sympathetic nervous system, which results in a fight-or-flight response. Adrenal fatigue and Hypo-adrenia are labels that we use to describe the physical effects of long term or high stress. Our mental state affects our susceptibility to illness and ability to heal… * Students under exam stress are more likely to become ill when exposed to a virus * More people have heart attacks at 9am […]

Hay fever

Hay fever is a type of rhinitis that is an allergic reaction to pollen and other airborne irritants such as fungal spores like mold, animal dander and house dust mites. Rhinitis just means inflammation of the nose – it happens when more mucus is produced inside the nose to catch particles that come in when we breathe. Allergic rhinitis (Hay fever) is when those particles being caught by the mucus layer cause a release of histamine. Most people who suffer from hay fever are allergic to grass pollen (happens in late summer) and many are allergic to tree pollen (in […]

The 10 most important things to do for good health

1. Drink water – I know you are thinking yeah yeah, I know that – but do you do it???

Histamine intolerance and mast cell disorders.

Histamine intolerance can be a factor that stops people from recovering their health, until it is addressed. Histamines are chemicals produced during allergic responses. When an allergen triggers the immune system, mast cells (a type of white blood cells) release histamines as part of the inflammatory immune reaction. As well as being produced during an immune response, histamines can also be absorbed from histamine-containing foods and are produced by bacteria in the gut. The symptoms of histamine intolerance are the same as other allergy problems: rashes, urticaria / hives, runny nose, swelling in the throat, and itching. An overload of […]

Electrosmog

Energy fields, such as sound and light, are all around us. Everything is made up of tiny particles and waveforms (energy patterns). Electrical devices emit electrical fields and magnetic fields Devices powered by mains electricity operate at low frequencies and give off electromagnetic frequencies (EMF’s). Appliances like washing machines and TVs draw voltage from the wires behind your plug sockets, the more power is needed – the more electrical and magnetic fields are produced. Higher frequencies are used for wireless communications (mobile phones, wifi etc). These frequencies radiate out as waves of energy so they are known as electromagnetic radiation […]

Hydration

Poor hydration is often the main underlying cause of many chronic conditions and this is not surprising when you consider that the human body is 75% water and the brain is 85% water. Good hydration is therefore crucial to any recovery. Conditions arising from poor hydration can include: joint pain and stiffness; headaches; oedema; high blood pressure; catarrhal conditions such as asthma and sinus problems; cellulite; gallstones; kidney damage. All of these conditions can be significantly improved through improving hydration. As well as insufficient intake of appropriate fluids, stressful modern lifestyles also contribute to dehydration because stress causes cellular dehydration […]
