Lifestyle before Pills – In-sourcing Healthcare

Rather than complementary/holistic versus conventional/allopathic I prefer to categorise healthcare according to what you can do for yourself versus what other people can do for you.  By outsourcing your health to other people you are taking a risk with your life.  Medical intervention is the number three cause of death according to the medical world! (Number one cause of death according to the complementary world).

Furthermore, people seem to use ‘holistic’ approaches in the same way as they would use a medical drug from a doctor.  For example, a specific herb to treat a skin condition, Osteopathy for backpain, acupuncture for a shoulder injury etc.  These can certainly help without the unwanted side-effects of conventional medicine but, this is treating symptoms which will only ever lead to short term and temporary improvement, and not address the underlying cause.

We have been conditioned to medicalise our health even to the extent of language such ‘walking in the forest is medicine’ – […]

Let’s Talk Dirty

Could being too clean and hygienic cause cancer, Alzheimers, Parkinsons, heart disease not to mention being overweight and obesity disease?  We now also have modern diseases never seen before such as autism, auto-immune disease, depression, anxiety but throughout evolution we didn’t have anti-bacterial products and we didn’t have chemicals  – we did have dirt!

Only about 2% of microbes are harmful to us and the best way to control these is through the flourishing of the other 98%

Let me introduce you to your mitochondria and your microbiome as these are the key to your health, longevity and vitality.

You have in the region of 100 quadrillion (that’s 1 and 17 zeros) mitochondria in your body.  They produce energy for you meaning they are vital for your health and vitality.  You are born with a set amount through parental (maternal) lineage and you need to look after after them.

Microbiome/Microbiota

Mircobiome is the totality your microbes in your body.  […]

Get healthy to lose weight

not lose weight to get healthy

Being overweight is a sign of metabolic imbalance, just like any other health complaint, such as dry skin, allergies, chronic fatigue, etc. We have observed that when the body chemistry normalizes, weight tends to seek its natural, normal, genetically-programmed level.

Therefore, we recommend that you seek to balance your body chemistry, improve your metabolic efficiency and build good health, rather than attempt to force your body to lose weight. Statistics show that in over 90% of such weight loss cases, excess weight will just come back, along with even more pounds than you lost in the first place, as long as the underlying cause is still there.

All the scientific evidence states that diets do not work in the long-term. This is not staggering new evidence. Over 60 years ago Ancel Keys researched calorie restriction diets and found that when the diet ended not only did participants put […]
