Algae and seaweed


Marine algae and seaweed has more concentrated nutrition than vegetables grown on land especially minerals that have been leeched from the soil due to intense farming techniques and chemical use. There are hundreds of types of edible algae and more are being discovered all the time. Some types have more calcium than cheese, more iron than beef and more protein than eggs, plus both algae and seaweed are rich sources of other nutrients and minerals especially vitamin A, the B complex, vitamin C, E and K and, unusually for plant foods, also contains vitamin B12 which makes it a good choice for vegans, vegetarians, the elderly, those with liver disorders and those that drink alcohol regularly or take medications as these often deplete the body of the B vitamins.  Read more

Heart disease


Coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease involve the heart and blood vessels, (arteries, valves, heart muscles, capillaries and veins). In time, arteries may become so narrow that they cannot deliver enough oxygen-rich blood to the heart. This can cause angina which is a pain or discomfort in the chest. This can be exasperated by high blood pressure and may be caused by high levels of LDL cholesterol building up the fatty materials and plaque on the artery walls. If a piece of the atheroma (fatty material) in the arteries breaks away it may cause a blood clot to form. If the blood clot blocks the coronary artery and cuts off the supply of oxygen-rich blood to the heart muscle, the heart muscle may become permanently damaged. This is known as a heart attack. If it travels to the brain it will result in a stroke. There are many natural ways to prevent heart disease and natural foods that can help once it has become an issue. Read more

Sepsis, also referred to as blood poisoning or septicaemia, is a condition triggered by the presence of harmful microbes and their toxins in bodily tissues, typically through infection of a wound or even a small cut or bite from an insect or an animal. This then causes the immune system to attacks the body's own tissues and organs whilst trying to fight off the infection when it spreads in the blood. This can lead to a reduction of blood supply to vital organs such as the brain, heart and kidneys and cause organ failure which can be fatal. Read more

High blood pressure


High blood pressure often has no symptoms or warning signs. If it stays elevated above 120/80 mmHg over time and is uncontrolled, it can lead to heart and kidney disease. High blood pressure causes the heart to work harder than normal putting both the heart and arteries at greater risk of damage. High blood pressure, or hypertension, increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, damage to the eyes, congestive heart failure, atherosclerosis and many other medical problems.

The A-Z of root vegetables

The ancestors of humans evolved to leave the trees and walk upright approximately 4.4 million years ago. They did this to take advantage of ground level foods like the nutritious roots of plants and their teeth changed to enable them to do this. Chimpanzees were more fruit eaters whilst gorillas stayed with leaves.

The roots of plants have been consumed by humans as nutritious food and medicines ever since. Many have astonishing properties which can heal and treat most human ailments and diseases without the harmful side effects of powerful medications. They should be an important part of the daily diet but most are often neglected. Read more

Butter v Margarine

The origins of butter go back thousands of years to when humans first started domesticating animals. The first written reference to butter was found on a 4500 year old limestone tablet illustrating how butter was made. In India, ghee (clarified butter) has been used as a staple food, and as a symbol of purity, worthy of offering to the gods in religious ceremonies for more than 3000 years. The Bible also has references to butter.

Margarine was originally created as a substitute for butter from beef tallow and skimmed milk in 1813 in France due to a shortage of butter. As it contained lustrous, pearly deposits, it was named after the Greek word margarites, for “pearly.” It was a white substance with little food appeal so  yellow colouring was added and other synthetic additives to make it palatable and then it was sold to people to use as a ‘healthy’ alternative to butter. Read more

Alcohol excess dangers

Because the damage being caused to the body, by regular alcohol consumption, is a slow process and often due to nutrient deficiencies that do not manifest symptoms for a some time many people do not realise how dangerous alcohol can be and continue to drink blaming their health disorders on anything but their alcohol consumption. These nutrient deficiencies can eventually lead to various types of illnesses, infections, organ malfunctions and cancer. A 'hangover' is something that many people believe is quite normal and simply a part of the suffering expected after 'having a good time' drinking but it is actually caused by the body being starved, poisoned and dehydrated. This is dangerous for both the liver and kidneys as well as the brain and heart. Read more
