Activated charcoal is charcoal that has been heated to very high temperatures, (removing all of the oxygen and changing its chemical structure) to create millions of tiny pores, which gives it a large surface area and allows it to bind toxins really well. If you can imagine that only 2 grams of activated charcoal powder has about the same surface area as a football field, this gives you a very good idea of how effective it is. It has been used for thousands of years by traditional healers, so it is nothing new, however, it is gaining popularity again. It works from adsorption rather than absorption, because it is full of negatively charged ions that work like a magnet to attract positively charged toxins and gases that then bind to the activated charcoal getting trapped in the tiny pores and then pulled

Are you noticing the following issues with your horse? • recurring lack of appetite • lethargy • intermittent fever • colic bouts • occasional edema (on the belly resulting from a loss of protein in the blood) • weight loss • thin body condition. Chances are your horse may be suffering from hindgut ulcers. Other symptoms can include, colic, diarrhea, lethargy and poor performance. Ulcers are common in performance horses and in a study conducted in 2005 by Franklin L. Pellegrini (DVM), it was concluded that somewhere between 44 & 60 per cent of horses have some form of colonic ulceration. A higher percentage was noted in performance horses. The symptoms of gastric ulcers and hindgut ulcers are very similar and so it can be difficult to determine whether or not your horse has one or the other. So what are colonic ulcers? They are a depression in the lining of the

But, like all foods, not all vegetables are created the same. A few vegetables appear to be downright "miracle" foods! One such group of veggies are those of the Brassica family; commonly known as cruciferous. These include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, radish, rutabaga, turnip and even arugula. What makes this group of veggies so special? Sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is a phytochemical abundant in cruciferous vegetables, and it's been getting a ton of attention from researchers. But it all starts with glucoraphanin. Sulforaphane is produced when the enzyme myrosinase converts glucoraphanin, a glucosinolate (a natural compound found in some plants), through a chemical reaction induced by damage to the plant, such as cutting or chewing. As such, glucoraphanin

For just pennies a day it may protect against dozens of life-threatening health conditions Many of us have been enculturated to think about the nutritional dimension of our food intake in terms of the government's recommended daily allowances (RDAs), focusing on getting the "right" amounts of carbohydrate, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals. However, I believe this focus on the quantifiable dimensions of food versus the qualitative/informationl elements has profoundly lead us astray. We bear witness to this in the fact that Americans are some of the most overfed yet simultaneously malnourished people on the planet. It is no wonder that we we

Green super foods are fast attracting more and more attention as people are embracing the health and Wellness wave sweeping communities. While there is a long way to go, it is encouraging to see a plethora of green super food supplements in health stores and also mainstream establishments like Aldi, Coles and Woolworths. So, what makes a great blend of green super foods that one can have in a smoothie, knowing that it is doing them good! Firstly, you need to understand that the most nutritious greens in the world that are packed with the highest protein of anything come from green algae and blue/green algae. Therefore, you need to choose a green powder that includes greens from the sea and that will include Chlorella and Spirulina. Chlorella is a type of green algae (contains 52% protein) while Spirulina is a type of

When you sprout seeds and beans you are germinating them and in so doing making them more easily digestible and ensuring they maintain their maximum nutrient profile. They will always be best consumed raw because you will not be reducing the hormones, oxygen, phyto nutrient and enzyme profile. As mentioned in a previous article, when you cook raw foods you instantly diminish the profile of these rendering the nutrient quality inferior. So, from a scientific perspective what does sprouting do? Firstly, it breaks down the anti-nutrients, enzyme inhibitors and lectins, while increasing the content and making available the many beneficial nutrients and amino acids to our bodies. Additionally, sprouted foods break down the compounds that cause digestive disturbances including things like flatulence. How would you like to receive up to 100 more enzymes into your body as a result of consuming sprouts & micro

We have all been programmed from an early age to believe that the best source of protein on the planet is meat. The meat industry has ensured that and it has always been about maintaining an industry for profit rather than maintaining it for nutritional purposes. The meat industry hijacked the protein discussion in the 1920’s in the USA and since then, we have all grown up with the belief that if we want to get the best protein, we need to be consuming meat. This article will expose that belief as dubious at best and back it up with hard and fast evidence for you to see once and for all with data that demonstrates that clearly the highest sources of protein come from plants and not meat. Did you know that today in the world, 6 out of 10 humans live

If you are not sure what Diatomaceous Earth is, then this article is for you, especially if your journey into natural health, wellness and healing is just beginning. Diatomaceous Earth is in fact fossilized Phytoplankton, found way down on the seabed and can be dated to 20-50 million years ago when it existed much like an algae. There are many benefits associated with this natural product but let’s examine what it is made up of first. Diatomaceous Earth is the second most prevalent element on the planet to oxygen and contains around 84% Silica. Other minerals found in it include, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron and other trace minerals our body needs to maintain good health. Overall, it is very effective at maintaining the structure of our body. Detox & Cleanse Diatomaceous Earth can remove aluminum from the body tissue, so it is a very good

One thing I find pleasing in today’s world is that more and more people are learning about and taking notice of the importance of the gut biome. This is the central plaza if you like where all of the action is in relation to providing good nutrition to our body. I liken it to a warehouse full of farm produce. If it is clean organic produce then the food will be making a positive impact on people it is distributed to. If it is produce filled with chemicals then it will have an adverse effect on the people it is distributed to. Our gut biome is no different and the more it is looked after the healthier we will be.   Hopefully you have heard about probiotics and prebiotics and this article will give you a clear explanation of both and their importance. Probiotics are
