Does Cow’s Dairy Leach Calcium From Your Bones?

Does Cow's Dairy Leach Calcium From Your Bones?

The case against cow’s dairy and whether it plays an ‘essential role in our health’, is an age old argument, causing plenty of controversy and a divide amongst health professionals.  To help dispel much of the confusion surrounding cow’s dairy and the role it plays in our diet, I’ve broken down the science for you so you can be clear about the facts on this supposed ‘essential food’ and whether we really need to consume cow’s dairy for strong, healthy bones. We’re taught from a young age that cow’s dairy will help our bones and teeth to grow strong and when we’re in … Continue reading

But perhaps even more concerning is the number of people who go undiagnosed, or are misdiagnosed by the medical profession. Those that may … Continue reading

Why Bone Broth Is The Secret To Natural Beauty

  If you’ve been wondering what all the fuss is with this latest health ‘fad’ of drinking bone broth, you might be surprised to hear this culinary tradition dates back centuries ago.  But as with so many food traditions, the slow food movement was lost with the birth of processed foods.  The consumption of processed foods has been largely responsible for the demise in our health, as we’ve traded convenience for disease!

Do you know that moody friend, or family member that can be beaming rays of sunshine one minute, then oozing black moods and taking a swipe at you the next?  Perhaps this is something you’re struggling with yourself, but your doctor has written you off as suffering depression or anxiety and simply prescribed an antidepressant.  Well before you write off your friend or family member, or even yourself as just being ‘moody’ or depressed, you may want to consider that there maybe something biochemical at play, and no I’m not talking about a split personality disorder!  I’m talking about an easily diagnosable … Continue reading

Why The Real Secret To Weight Loss Lies In Your Gut

 Hands up if you’ve ever been on a diet and failed?  Hands up if you’ve ever been on a diet that has lead to you putting on more weight than before you started?  I bet the answer to at least one of these questions is ‘Yes’ and the simple explanation is because diets honestly don’t work, well at least not in the long term for the majority of people.  You see as humans, we’re designed to be pleasure seekers and food is one of the simplest and most satisfying pleasures we can enjoy, so by depriving yourself of food and … Continue reading

6 Natural Ways To Manage Anxiety & Depression

Whenever I write a post related to anxiety or depression, or about how food affects your mood, there always seems to be a greater response from readers in comparison to other topics I write about.   I can only put this phenomenon down to the fact that more and more people are suffering from these conditions and searching for answers.  I first witnessed this growing epidemic through my clinical practice, when more than half of my patients reported anxiety and depression as being one of the major issues impacting their health and day-to-day life. I’ve also been in relationships with sufferers of chronic anxiety and depression, … Continue reading

9 Tips For Overcoming Chronic Illness

When I was in my early twenties, I thought I was on top of life, training for a marathon and forging what I believed was going to be a successful career in advertising, until one day life had a different plan in store. It decided I needed to spend the best part of four years in bed – sleeping up to 21 hrs a day, too exhausted to move and wracked with pain  – to the point I had to crawl upstairs on my backside because my legs were so weak.  What began as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, later progressed to SLE – … Continue reading
