12 Health Benefits of Drinking Hydrogen Rich Water

10 Great Reasons to Supplement With Vitamin D This Winter

Now that the summer is over and the darker half of the year is starting, it is important to consider the health benefits of vitamin D. Vitamin D does not occur in adequate levels, naturally, in food. Your body does produce good amounts from the sunlight but this is when you allow yourself to be exposed! That is why it is vital to ensure that you receive enough of it during the time of the year when sunlight is in short supply. Continue reading

Unusual Symptoms of Dehydration & How Best to Tackle Them

A large number of people suffer from dehydration without being aware of it.

The consequences are equally grave in the long term, and they are easily avoidable if you know the signs that you are dehydrated. Continue reading

Are Your Drinks Eating Away Your Teeth?

Teeth enamel is the hard shell that covers the crown of the teeth to protect them from damage caused by biting, chewing, extreme temperatures, and acidic substances. Without the enamel, we would have developed many more cavities and the nerves inside our teeth would have been open to the painful sensations of chewing and the extreme temperatures of the foods and drinks we put in our mouths. We can adopt certain practices to prevent this shell from eroding.  Continue reading

Heavy Metal Toxicity and Mineral Deficiencies May Contribute to Migraine

Most migraine sufferers hunt for the trigger of their migraines by attempting to identify the common event that precedes their migraine episodes.

In response, some researchers have performed blood, hair, and urine tests on migraine sufferers to find the physical characteristics they all seem to have in common. Continue reading

How Heavy Metal Detoxing Can Help Combat Diabetes

Heavy metals are all around you; you don't have to work in a mine or a factory to be contaminated. Lead can leach out of the soil or from your old water pipes into your tap water. Toxic elements from arsenic are widely used in fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides that seep into the soil in which food is grown. Lead and cadmium are used as colour enhancers in many household products and even children's toys, although the EU has attempted to stamp this out. Continue reading

The Potential Health Risks of Microwaving Your Food

Microwave ovens are quick and convenient for anything from warming yesterday's leftover lasagne, to cooking today's vegetables, and baking cakes. They tend not to burn food, so the dishes are easier to clean. Your family may pay a high price for this speed and convenience, however, which should make you think twice about using them as the food becomes perpetrated by microwaves and violently mutilated.

Symptoms of Acidosis and Natural Treatment Options

Acidosis is a condition from which your body suffers when the pH of your blood and tissue drops below 7.35. It means that your cells cannot function properly and may even die because their acid content is too high.

Stress and lack of exercise also contribute. Continue reading
