Candidiasis is an infection caused by a group of yeasts. There are more than 20 species of Candida, the most common being Candida albicans [1].

Examples of such infections are vaginal yeast infections (thrush), oral thrush, skin and nappy rash, and nail bed infections. These are the most common and well known forms of yeast infections.

But some people with weakened immune systems develop a systemic illness caused by Candida [...]

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 [...]

Magnesium and Your Health

cal-mag-phos-scale Photo Source:www.ameerrosic.com      

Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in your body. If you don't have enough of it, your body simply cannot function at its best. Insufficient cellular magnesium levels set the stage for deterioration of proper metabolic function that typically snowballs into more significant health problems.

As reported by GreenMedInfo [1] researchers have now detected 3,751 magnesium-binding sites on human proteins, reflecting how important this mineral is to a great many biological processes. For example, magnesium plays a role in your body's detoxification processes and therefore is important for minimizing damage from environmental chemicals, heavy metals, and other toxins.

This important mineral is required by more than 300 different enzymes in your body, which play important roles in the following biochemical processes, many of which are crucial for proper metabolic function:
  • Creation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy molecules of your body
  • Proper formation of bones and teeth
  • Relaxation of blood vessels
  • Action of your heart muscle
  • Promotion of proper bowel function
  • Regulation of blood sugar levels

Your Best Magnesium Source: REAL Food

Most people can keep their magnesium levels in the therapeutic range without resorting to supplements, simply by eating a varied diet, including plenty of dark-green leafy vegetables. However, it is important to remember that the magnesium content of your foods depends on the richness of magnesium in the soil where they're grown. GreenMedInfo lists more than 20 foods that are exceptionally high in magnesium, including the following (for the full list, please refer to the original report). All listed portions equate to 100 grams, or just over three ounces:

Seaweed, agar, dried (770 mg)
Spices, basil, dried (422 mg)
Spice, coriander leaf, dried (694 mg)
Flaxseed (392 mg)
Dried pumpkin seeds (535 mg)
Almond butter (303 mg)
Cocoa, dry powder, unsweetened (499 mg)
Whey, sweet, dried (176 mg)


Magnesium Supllements

Magnesium citrate -- Magnesium citrate is the most popular magnesium supplement, probably because it is inexpensive and easily absorbed. Since citric acid is a mild laxative, magnesium citrate functions as a constipation aid as well as a magnesium source. It is a great choice for individuals with rectal or colon problems but is unsuitable for those with loose bowel movements.

Magnesium taurate -- Magnesium taurate is the best choice of magnesium supplement for people with cardiovascular issues, since it is known to prevent arrhythmias and guard the heart from damage caused by heart attacks. Magnesium taurate is easily absorbed (magnesium and taurine stabilize cell membranes together), and it contains no laxative properties.

Magnesium malate -- Magnesium malate is a fantastic choice for people suffering from fatigue, since malic acid -- a natural fruit acid present in most cells in the body -- is a vital component of enzymes that play a key role in ATP synthesis and energy production. Since the ionic bonds of magnesium and malic acid are easily broken, magnesium malate is also highly soluble.

Magnesium glycinate -- Magnesium glycinate (magnesium bound with glycine, a non-essential amino acid) is one of the most bioavailable and absorbable forms of magnesium, and also the least likely to induce diarrhea. It is the safest option for correcting a long-term deficiency.

Magnesium oxide -- Magnesium oxide is the most common form of magnesium sold in pharmacies, but it is non-chelated and possesses a poor absorption rate.

Of the many forms of Magnesium supplements available today, a newer form called Magnesium Threonate shows particular promise due to its ability to penetrate cell membranes, even those in your brain.

I want to remind you that calcium and magnesium also needs to be balanced with vitamin D and K2. These four nutrients perform an intricate dance together, with one supporting the other.

Suggested Magnesium daily dose between 400-600mg.

Why is MSG so harmful and where it is hidden

msg1 Source: Truth about cancer TM

I just finished watching "Truth about cancer" documentary.  It was a well done and very informative doc-series. One of the things it came up was MSG.  
MSG - The Brain Destroying, Cancer Causing Ingredient Hidden In Your Food It!

is often disguised under many other names and therefore, you may not be able to detect it in a list of ingredients unless you know what to look for.  You will likely see that MSG is in almost everything processed: soups, chips, ramen noodles, gravy, sauces, salad dressings, corn oil, broth and so many other items.  I could not describe any better the worrisome effects of MSG than this article [...]

Wondering if it’s time to swap your dairy?
The milk aisle might seem more crowded lately with lots of milk substitutes. A milk substitute is a liquid that replaces dairy. It is distinct from plant milk, which is used by those who want to avoid animal products for health or ethical reasons or because of taste preference.

According to the Food Allergy Initiative, allergy to cow’s milk is a common food allergy in infants and children.

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.”

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
