As consumers, we have been bombarded constantly over the past 40-50 years by the so called authorities about fats: saturated fats, unsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, hydrogenated fats, good fats, bad fats, you name it fats and unfortunately, the information released to the masses in western society has been misleading (based on old, out of date data and plain inaccurate and misleading studies), to the detriment of the health of people in our communities. One thing that is becoming increasingly clear is that the old school mantra of bashing coconut oil as being bad for you, is fast becoming flawed. What needs to be noted is that early studies done on coconut oil many years ago that returned less than favourable results used partially hydrogenated coconut oil NOT unrefined virgin coconut oil. Hydrogenated oil is not the same as unrefined oil and it

The process of activating legumes like Chick Peas, involves soaking and then sprouting them. Most people do not realize how beneficial this process is for the nutritional benefits. This process breaks down enzymes and chemicals in the legumes, which makes them easier to be digested and also improves the absorption of nutrients into our body. The main chemical that is broken down in this process is phytic acid. The reason is that phytic acid tends to bind to a lot of minerals which makes them harder to absorb into our system. The importance of making enzymes more digestible means it can enable less bloating, gas and better bowel movements. By sprouting the legumes, you are gaining many nutritional benefits including: Legumes become more alkalizing Aflatoxins, a carcinogenic compound can be broken down Change of the macronutrient profile in which the proteins break down

Fermented foods have been used by civilizations for thousands of years and in the modern era with the plethora of processed and toxic foods on the market, we need them more than ever in our regular diets. The gut biome is the epi-centre of our body and is responsible for delivering nutrients to our system and so needs to be looked after so that it can maintain effective and efficient distribution of those nutrients to keep us healthy and dis-ease free. Our fermented foods allow the good bacteria to flourish and provide very high enzymatic activity to accelerate healing and disease recovery. Even better, the use of fermented foods daily can avoid the issue having to deal with disease in the first place. The good guys of the bacteria world include acidophilus and bifidus and go about their business consuming compounds in the

Western medicine has historically viewed our digestive system and the brain as separate entities working independently of each other. Recent research has found that the two are very closely connected and in fact the gut biome is now recognised as the “second brain” and is central to our overall health and wellness. Our gut biome is a complete eco system in itself and it is estimated that well over 100 trillion microbes live within and on our body. They can include bacteria, fungi, viruses and other micro organisms. This eco system of microbes is so large that their genes outnumber ours by 100:1. When we consider the gut biome, the large intestine is the most important as it contains the most and diverse amount of microbes than any other part of the human body. The layer of mucus that lines the large

So you may be thinking, what is MSM? MSM is an abbreviation for Methyl-Sulphonyl-Methane which is a pure, organic sulphur compound. Not surprisingly, sulphur is a major compound found in the human body (3rd largest nutrient) and is also found in many foods that we consume. There are a myriad of reasons why you need to be taking MSM, not to mention joint health and improved flexibility, as an antioxidant booster, anti-aging and energy booster (it is found in over 150 compounds in our body with Sulphur components in every part of our cells). As always though you must remember that health and wellness needs to be treated from a holistic perspective and although MSM is extremely important to your health and wellness, there are other things you need to be doing to ensure it compliments adding MSM into your daily health regimen, for

It is crazy to think about the programming the diary industry has successfully implemented into western society. Don’t believe me? Answer this question: What is the best way to get calcium intake to develop strong bones and nails in our body? Answer _____________ If you answered “milk” or “dairy” then you have been programmed. Truth is you don’t need to drink milk at all. I don’t drink it now, nor eat dairy, haven’t done for many years and I do not suffer from a lack of calcium in my diet. However, I did grow up believing it was the only way to get my daily intake of calcium. You are probably thinking now: “How can I get my daily intake then?” Here is some really useful information about calcium intake to consider, thanks to the great Don Tolman. As an aside, I recommend that you take

Part 1 Any observations around health & nutrition will generally identify “fads” that most sheeples will jump on and companies will exploit to gain a larger market share in the name of “better health”. This has been the case for a long time and will most likely continue on well into the future. The latest big “Thang” seems to be Stevia. Why? Simple really, as it is a naturally occurring plant grown traditionally in South America and avoids all of the adverse issues that can occur when sugar is consumed. The active compounds are steviol glycosides containing up to 150 times the sweetness of sugar and the compound Stevioside contains most of the beneficial properties despite the bitter aftertaste. The type of Stevia used to produce product for the human market contains Rebaudioside A which is the most extracted compound and used in

Sufferers of chronic pain have been faced with a perilous decision—risk a crippling addiction to opioids or find a way to live with the pain. A new clinical study has focused on medical cannabis as an alternative to opioids, and the results may be a turning point towards a safe, plant-based option for easing pain A new study published in the European Journal of Internal Medicine represents hope for millions of sufferers of chronic pain. Researchers at the Cannabis Clinical Research Institute at Soroka University Medical Center, and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), found that medical cannabis can significantly reduce chronic pain without adverse effects, particularly among

Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why new research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising! Fluoride's neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From 'conspiracy theories' about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional 'seat of the soul' –
