Why These 7 Superfoods Will Enhance Your Life

29 April, 2017

There are some words that have become buzzwords in recent times. No longer are they the language used solely by health and whole foods companies; supermarkets, corporates and even some small businesses have no problem with taking words like superfood and organic and using them to promote unworthy products; misleading people is not an issue when there is profit to be made. 

A superfood is a food that has at least twelve properties unique to it. This means that the so-called superfoods on your supermarket shelves (think, blueberries, kale, etc.) are not actually superfoods at all...

The H word. Herpes. Not many people are comfortable talking about it; it’s one of those conditions that although incredibly common, still seems relatively taboo.

Are You Getting Enough Bioavailable Vitamin C?

01 April, 2017

Vitamin C doesn’t need much introduction. We all know it’s good for us - crucial, even - but how many of us can honestly say we’re getting enough? We might seem to be surviving fine without it, but you’ll know the difference if you up your intake via the right sources.

As we don’t naturally produce vitamin C in our bodies, we have to make sure that we are consuming enough of it each day. The moment we so much as feel a bit stressed, our body uses 600mg immediately. If you don’t have a balanced diet and aren’t regularly topping up with bioavailable vitamin C, you can see how this might lead to problems...

4 Reasons You Need Yoga in Your Life

18 March, 2017

Yoga. Everyone knows what it is, but there are still a lot of misconceptions around it. That isn’t helped much by the fact that it’s become almost fashionable to do yoga these days; some people buy so completely into yoga image that it seems that the main point of doing yoga is shadowed by its ability to produce lithe bodies and admiration from others.

Not all beautiful yogis are missing the point though, and yoga is one of the best things you can do for your physical and mental health. Here are 4 reasons why you should take up yoga (or get more serious about your practice)...

Most of us know that lemons are good for us, but there are a surprising number of health benefits to be gained from eating lemons; some of which you may not be aware of. This flavoursome citrus fruit has so many uses, aside from the obvious culinary ones. 

Because they are high in vitamin C, they are often squeezed into hot drinks when people are struggling with colds and flu. If this is the only time you use lemons, you're not taking full advantage of this power packed citrus fruit...

Getting Back in Touch with Earth: Grounding for Health

06 March, 2017

Earthing, also known as grounding, is actually a very natural thing to do. We have become separated from the Earth in a sense, since the invention of shoes and the practice of covering the ground in concrete for our roads and pathways. 

Keeping your feet connected to the Earth for as little as an hour has helped chronic diseases, pain and inflammation, and it is thought to slow down the aging process. It’s not a bad way to boost your overall health; it's free, it's natural and it's simple - you don't even need to walk around, as long as your skin is connected with the earth, sand or grass...

4 Shocking Truths About Alcohol Consumption

20 February, 2017

You would have to have led a sheltered life to be unaware of the dangers of excess alcohol consumption. It only takes a glance through any busy pub doorway on a Saturday night to see how things might take a nosedive, and any Saturday night A&E waiting room to confirm it. There does seem to be a prevalent attitude that as alcohol is so easily sourced - thoroughly embraced by many establishments, even - it can’t be that bad. It is. Regular consumption may be a cultural norm, and it will continue to be while there's a ridiculous amount of money to be made on alcohol sales. You have probably heard that alcohol is a depressant, and that it damages the liver. These are truths, but there are many more detriments to drinking alcohol than are commonly broadcast...

09 February, 2017

Lately information has come to light that the way we generally cook rice, although it is accepted as standard, could actually be very damaging to our health. You might be surprised to hear that there are traces of arsenic in your rice, but sadly that's not all. The reason arsenic is present in your rice is the industrial toxins and pesticides in the soil. You’re better off staying as far away as possible from substances like arsenic. Although it is a naturally occurring chemical, anything that contributes to developmental problems, heart disease, diabetes and cancer can’t be the greatest news, especially in unnatural amounts...

The Ion Effect: How Negative Ions Boost Health

03 February, 2017

In a culture where we are ensconced in synthetic, positive ion-inducing environments, people aren't able to get out into nature often enough to feel consistently healthy. Positive ions are free radicals, which have a reputation for causing poor health and even chronic diseases like cancer. It is thought that negative irons can bond with positive ones outside of the body, rendering them harmless. Negative ions are considered to prevent the growth of both bacteria and cancer cells...
