Nature and Health: Take a Walk in the Forest and Call Me in the Morning

July 23, 2015 |

Look deep into nature and then you’ll understand everything better - Albert Einstein Why do we feel calmer and happier when we are outdoors in nature? One theory suggests that we are intuitively connected to nature since it’s in our DNA.   The indigenous people of our planet believe that humans are but one aspect of nature and therefore not just passive observers of it. Our role is to participate as part of the ecosystem. There has been a lot of research coming out of Japan regarding the health benefits of walking through nature. In 1982 the Forest Agency of Japan promoted the practice of ‘Shinrin-yoku’ or ‘forest bathing’ to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Since 67% of the land in Japan is ...

Why your detox is making you sick: The dangers of aggressive detoxing.

May 26, 2015 |

I can't tell you how many people have told me that a "detox" protocol made them feel extremely ill. They take detox supplements, pills or tinctures, and within a few hours they suffer dizziness, diarrhea, chills, outbreaks or even vomiting. These symptoms range from mild to severe, depending on the person and what they've taken. Such is the legacy of what I'm calling "extreme detox supplements" that seem to be designed to cause as much suffering as possible while framing it all as a "healing crisis." I've always had a problem with the idea that such symptoms are routinely explained away as a healing crisis; as if you must suffer before you can heal. In this must-read article, I'm going ...

Hormones are made from nutrients with the help of enzymes which require minerals. So what is the good food?  The food that people ate in the Palaeolithic times before agriculture existed. This includes fresh vegetables, if possible, organic not canned or those with preservatives and pesticides. Pasture raised meat, chicken, wild caught fish cooked at a low temperature. Estrogens, androgens, progesterone and others of the steroid family all come from the precursor Cholesterol. Although it doesn’t have good press since the mid 80’s, cholesterol is a vital substance.

The Function of Multi Strain Probiotics in the Human Body

December 3, 2014 |

Probiotics are well known for their presence in our small and large intestine, but there are actually human microbiota in our oral cavity, respiratory tract, genito-urinary tract and skin too!  There are 100,000 billion microbes in the intestine and only 1,000 billion on our skin, and this colonization begins at birth, assuming the mother has a vaginal birth. As the baby travels through the birth canal she/he is coated in the mother’s bacteria and begins to colonize these as her own.  In the case of a c-section birth a baby is robbed of this “gift” from her mother and comes from a sterile environment (the uterus) into a hospital setting, where her first exposure is to hospital bacteria such as ...

Why treat with alkalic mixtures?

October 9, 2014 |

Our intestines do the vast majority of the digestive process. Use of HCl without a buffering agent (bile) weakens the activity of the intestines, as the digestive juices in the stomach require an alkaline environment to fully work. In the stomach, acidic reactions prevail; in the duodenum it must be alkaline. The stomach attempts to give the body sodium to form the bases by increasing the breakdown of salt into sodium and chlorine. NaCl + H2O + CO2 = HCl + NaHCO3 (sodium hydrogen carbonate) The base NaHCO3 is more important for digestion and is given preferential treatment. As the HCl leaves the border cells in the stomach and enters the lumen, the base is taken by the blood to ...
