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

Gut Healing Bone Broth

Gut Healing Bone Broth

  Bone Broth has long been used as a medicinal healing remedy to maintain and restore healthy digestive and immune function. The gelatin found in bone broth helps to reduce joint pain and inflammation, thanks to the amino acids, glycine, proline, and arginine, as well as being rich in chondroitin sulfates, glucosamine, and other compounds extracted from the boiled down cartilage. Bone broth also contains high amounts of calcium, magnesium, and other nutrients that play an important role in healthy bone formation as well promoting healthy hair and nail growth. You can use any bones you prefer – including chicken, beef, pork, or … Continue reading

6 Mistakes People Make With Their Green Juice

6 Mistakes People Make With Their Green Juice

Just like green smoothies green juices have become all the rage when it comes to living a healthy life, but like many crazes, people can get a bit ‘crazy’ and derail with some of the core principles when it comes to embracing certain healthy habits.  I recently wrote about this in relation to the Paleo trend.  But is it any wonder that so many people find themselves bewildered and confused, thanks to the mass of information available on the internet nowadays  – and the majority of it coming from unqualified sources.  But in this post, I want to focus on six of … Continue reading

But if you could choose 5 things to do everyday that would make a serious dent in boosting your health…. these would be my pick: Start your day with warm … Continue reading

11 Signs Stress Is Affecting Your Health

11 Signs Stress Is Affecting Your Health

Stress is so commonplace for many of us nowadays that it’s become a way of life. So often we are completely unaware of just how much stress we are exposed to on a daily basis, that we fail to even recognise the signs and symptoms that can be directly induced by chronic stress.  Stress in small doses is perfectly normal and can even help you to perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best, however when that stress becomes ongoing, the effects can be life threatening increasing your risk for chronic illness and disease.  As strange as it … Continue reading

7 Mistakes Paelo lovers make that are harming their health

7 Mistakes Paelo lovers make that are harming their health

  There’s no arguing the Paleo diet has taken the world by storm and I’m far more in support of, than against this movement as it shares many of my nutritional philosophies – eating whole, unprocessed foods that are as close to nature as possible, and nothing our ancestors wouldn’t recognise, as well as being gluten and dairy free and low in sugar.  However I find many Paleo enthusiasts get the wrong end of the stick when it comes to some of the Paleo principles.  Here are seven of the most common mistakes I find people make when following a Paleo … Continue reading

Do you have autoimmune disease because you hate yourself? Perhaps not…

A recent article written by a journalist on the supposed ‘cause’ of autoimmune disease, left me shaking my head – aghast and appalled at the blanket approach the author claims is the reason why millions of women suffer from autoimmune disease –  apparently all AI sufferers ‘loath themselves’…? If there is one thing I have learn’t in my 14 years in clinical practice as a Nutritionist specializing in treating chronic illness – in particular AI disease, it’s that no single case is the same, just as there is no single cause of AI disease. My approach to treating any and … Continue reading

Why your thyroid pathology maybe ‘normal’ but you don’t feel it

Why your thyroid pathology maybe 'normal' but you don't feel it

  If you’ve been following my blog, you may recall in my previous thyroid post that when it comes to pathology testing, you only find what you look for  and this certainly applies to sufferers of thyroid disorders.  Over 40% of women suffer from an underactive thyroid,  yet the majority of them are going undiagnosed or being told by their Dr they have ‘normal’ thyroid pathology results, despite presenting with classic underactive thyroid symptoms of fatigue, weight gain, depression and brain fog.   Worse still, even the cases that are being diagnosed, are either receiving inadequate diagnosis and or treatment. This was … Continue reading

Should you trust the glycemic index

Should you trust the glycemic index

  You may have heard the term ‘low GI’ or Glyceamic Index bandied around in the plight to lose weight, with many processed food manufacturers sporting ‘LOW GI’ on products including Milo and sugar laden yoghurts and breakfast cereals!   But just how much trust can we place in these two letters ‘GI’ when it comes to gauging the healthfulness of a food?  In my view, most foods claiming to be ‘low GI’ are up there with the Heart Foundation’s tick of approval – highly misleading and provide a skewed view of the nutritional value of a food. So firstly what is … Continue reading
