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. This search is often unsuccessful, precisely because it seems as if many different events can bring on the 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. Typical Western foods and beverages, such as white bread, sugary pastries, salty crackers and crisps, meat, dairy, fast food, coffee, alcohol, and soft drinks, tend to cause acidosis.

Can the Alkaline Diet Help Your Indigestion Naturally?

A large percentage of people suffer from some form of ingestion, including heartburn, bloating, gassiness, and constipation.

Eating Breakfast Helps With Weight Loss and 3 Delicious Alkalising Breakfast Recipes

While there are some recent dissenters, the vast majority of researchers have discovered that eating breakfast helps maintain healthy body weight, a higher activity level and less hunger throughout the day, less snacking, and lower scores on the main markers of metabolic disease.

Is Sugar Really So Bad For Us?

In the 21st century, residents of industrialised countries consume at least their entire body weight of sugar per year, with some of them consuming as much as twice their body weight in those 365 days. Most calories we consume daily are sugars. Not only does this differ from previous centuries when we ate more protein, fat, and fibre, but unlike in previous centuries, precious little of our current sugar intake originates from complex sugar sources like fruit and whole grains that contain large percentages of healthy nutrients too.

The Proven Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow colour. Commercially available curry powder contains it. You can also buy it as a stand-alone powdered spice and mix it with your favourite combination of other spices. However, since the spice contains far too little of the active ingredient, called curcumin, you need to obtain a turmeric supplement to enjoy these health benefits. Inflammation is responsible for a wide variety of modern diseases, including cardiovascular disease, arthritis, diabetes and cancer. Continue reading

Is Your Shower Water Causing Your Skin Woes and Even Eczema?

Help Save Our Planet by Using a Non-Toxic Sunscreen This Summer

Sunscreen is quite literally a life saver. It protects millions of people from potentially deadly skin cancer, especially during the summer. But this seemingly innocent product for skin also has a dark side, as it can also harm human, animal, and plant life, however, by spilling millions of litres of artificial chemicals into the sea, the rivers, the soil, and our drinking water that many commercial brands contain.

The Detrimental Effects of Chemical Sunscreen are caused by: Continue reading

How to Avoid Bloating on the Plane

Aeroplanes, especially on those long international flights, are uncomfortable places for our digestive systems. We are expected to sit quietly in a small cramped place for unnatural periods of time, we eat and drink constantly to overcome boredom whilst flying, and we are too embarrassed or disgusted to remain in the bathroom for a good long visit. Then, there is the food that we are served, that is usually the type that is over processed and refined which puts added strain on our digestive system at the best of times, and can cause gas and our abdominal region to swell.
