Food Allergy and Intolerance

T-foodAllergies-enHD-AR1

Many different names are used to describe adverse reactions to foods, including food hypersensitivity, food intolerance, food allergy and many other medical and non-medical terms. Food allergies were a rarity just 40 or 50 years ago, but today an estimated one out of every 13 children has a food allergy -- and the incidence is increasing. According to UK data, hospitalizations for food allergy increased by 500 percent from 1990 to 2006.

Detox do’s and dont’s

Detox-dos-and-donts_1-1024x682

The idea of detoxification is growing increasingly popular. The basic idea is that your body accumulates more toxins in the modern world than its natural detoxification system (your liver, kidneys, lungs and skin) can get rid of.

Proponents say that chemicals from household cleaners, pesticides, cars, pollutants in the air, plus food additives, colorings, preservatives and stabilizers, herbicides and pesticides all build up over time and cause disease. By assisting natural detoxification process in the body you will slow down the ageing process.

How often should I detox?

xhow-often-should-I-detox_11-1024x704.jpg.pagespeed.ic.xBj2lpIkGB

There is little doubt that our environment is polluted with toxins and harmful substances. Toxins can damage the body in an insidious and cumulative way. Fortunately, the body has a built in detoxification process working 24/7. A toxin is defined as any compound that has a detrimental effect on cell function or structure.

“In nature we plainly see daily and seasonal cycles that support the survival of plants and animals. For example, birds fly south, whales migrate, and leaves turn red and fall off the trees in the fall. While all this is happening, we only put on or take off a sweater. Our survival, just like the birds, depends on being connected to these natural cycles through eating seasonally, cleansing regularly and living in harmony with nature”, explains Dr. Douilard beautifully. Our detox system has to be fully operational every day, it doesn’t get lunch or coffee break. But when the burden of input exceeds what we can eliminate, that’s when we have a problem [...]

How To Maintain a Healthy Colon

1000x663xcolon-health_2.jpg.pagespeed.ic.KEkKTgBFn_

Lets face it, digestive concerns aren’t a fun topic of conversation. In fact, many people have trouble talking to their own doctor about their concerns.

Others suffer in silent embarrassment, worry and discomfort over their rumbling and gurgling – the cramps, bloating, gas, constipation, or diarrhea.

The fact is that if your digestive tract isn’t operating efficiently, you have more to worry about than just your colon. Continue reading part 1 [...]part 2 [...] and part 3 [...]

Healthy Benefits of Charcoal

nutrient-additives-505124
Activated Charcoal has been around for thousands of years. It was even used by Hippocrates and Pliny in their day. It is also called Black Magic.

For over 10,000 years healers from Chinese Medicine, Ayuredic Medicine and Western Medicine have used activated charcoal to soak up poisons and improve intestinal health through a process called “adsorption” which means “to bind to” rather than “to absorb.”

What does activated charcoal actually do? [...]

Let go of your toxic baggage + £100 voucher

IMG_6755

Millions of us, over half the population, suffer from FLC Syndrome. That’s when you Feel Like Crap. Sometimes it’s annoying little symptoms such as achy joints or muscles, brain fog, fatigue, headaches, allergies or gas, or more serious problems such as autoimmune diseases, migraines, asthma, acne, irritable bowel, reflux, arthritis or worse.

A detox could be your solution to these and other problems. Now, I know that the word “detox” has bad connotations. You might imagine drinking some weird concoction, being constantly hungry, having to run to the bathroom all the time, or otherwise suffering and depriving yourself.
When I use the word “detox,” I mean a scientifically designed medical detox from sugar, and all things that turn to sugar. The fun part is that it’s done simply by taking out the bad stuff and putting in the good stuff—lots of good stuff. Maybe I should call it The Feel Good with Good Stuff plan!

An intelligently designed detox helps you get rid of more than just unwanted pounds. This is your chance to heal your body on every level.

Yes, you will drop pounds, but you will also find that your energy, sleep and mood improve, that chronic problems including joint pain, digestive problems, autoimmune disease, headaches, memory problems and brain fog, sinus and allergy issues, even acne, eczema, and psoriasis will get better or disappear entirely. Your sexual desire and function may even improve.

I can think of a thousand benefits of detoxification, but let’s take a look at these seven:

You feel better. When you detox, you wake up feeling vital, vibrant, alive, joyful, and full of energy.


You lose weight. When you detoxify, you eliminate nasty toxins (including sugar!) that hold your weight hostage.


You nix cravings. Sugar and flour are biologically addictive. The science behind it is clear and conclusive. A detox allows you to unhook yourself from the addictive power of sugar, flour, and hyper-processed, hyper-palatable food-like substances.


You eliminate food sensitivities. An intelligently designed detox will also eliminate foods that your body might be reacting to, causing inflammation and many other symptoms. 


You get a reboot. The best way to reset your life is with a detox. Simple, delicious foods. No toxins or drugs, by which I mean sugar, flour, processed foods, caffeine or alcohol.


You have better sex. Sex hormones, toxicity, and a healthy insulin balance are more intimately linked than you might think. We’ve been conditioned to believe that low sex drive and other symptoms become normal as we age. They don’t. Once you understand how insulin can impact other hormones (including your sex hormones), you begin to connect the dots about how toxic food and a toxic environment can wreck your sex life.


You get to the roots of your motivation and choices.  Once you have experienced what it feels like to feel good, to get rid of brain fog, cravings, joint pain, fatigue, excess weight, and a myriad of other chronic health problems, then you know there is a path forward.


An intelligently designed detox helps you get rid of more than just unwanted pounds. This is your chance to heal your body on every level.

I would love to be part of your health journey.  Autumn is a perfect time to detoxify.  If you or anyone you know could benefit from detox, I would love to connect for a complimentary consultation. Use this voucher to get £100 OFF Detox Protocol

Coffee Enema

                                      blog-thumb-coffee

It might not occur to you, sipping your morning coffee, that you could derive tremendous health benefits by simply shooting that coffee directly into your rectum.

Coffee enemas may help relieve constipation, insomnia and cognitive problems; they may eliminate (or control) parasites, candida and other pathogens (without disrupting intestinal flora). Coffee enemas are frequently used in natural cancer protocols such as the Gerson Therapy (www.gerson.org). Coffee enemas were outlined as a treatment in the revered “Merck Manual,” a thick book that physicians used as their primary reference for decades, until the mid 1970s.

The man who popularized coffee enemas more than any other in modern times was Max Gerson, MD, author of A Cancer Therapy - Results of 50 Cases (1958).  Dr. Gerson pioneered nutritional therapy for cancer and other diseases with amazing results.  His therapy combined coffee enemas with a special diet, juices and a few other nutritional supplements.  The enemas were an integral part of the therapy. 

As the coffee is retained in your bowel, the fluid goes through your intestinal wall, through the portal vein to your liver. The stimulating effects and healing compounds of coffee jumpstart your liver and gallbladder. Bile flows. 

There are compounds in coffee like kahweol and cafestol which spark production of glutathione, and that is a strong cleansing compound in your body, one that consumers pay good money for when they buy glutathione as a dietary supplement, or get IV injections of it. To make more glutathione naturally (by using a coffee enema) is awesome.


These enemas may allow for relaxation, a better mood, more energy, refreshing sleep and greater mental clarity. If you do too many enemas per week, you may experience electrolyte imbalances.

Making coffee enema:

- use organically grown, medium to dark roast, non oily coffee

- I recommend only one to two tablespoons of coffee, or even less when starting out (it also depends of your tolerance to coffee) to three-four cups purified water

- Simmer in the pot for about 10-12 minutes

- Filter and cool it down. It should be comfortaby warm temperature

- Put coffee into enema bucket

- Get air out of the enema tube. Let water begins to flow out the tube, then as soon as it starts flowing, you quickly close the clamp

- Lubricate the enema tip with a small amount of olive oil, coconut oil

- If possible, have a bowel movement before doing your enema

- The enema tip must go in at least two inches. Open the clamp. The coffee may take a few seconds to begin flowing

- When half of the coffee is inside you, close the clamp. You can leave the enema tube inserted, or remove it slowly.

- You’ll want to just lie on your back with hips slightly elevated for 12-15 minutes. During this time you can: meditate, massage your lower abdomen 

- After 15 go to the toilet and empty out the coffee.

- Repeat procedure with the left over half coffee for another 12-15 minutes

You can have a coffee enema once a day or once a week as maintenance. If you are wishing to remove candida and pathogens, try 3 back-to-back, and continue to do them on a regular basis.
