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

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

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

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

  Soy has long been portrayed as a ‘health food’ when in fact nothing could be further from the truth!  The soy story sounds more like something out of a Hollywood movie….involving ‘money, power, lies and deception!’ Even big time celebrities and elite athletes have been brought onboard to help sell the soy story, as a health and even beauty food!  Yep…it seems when you have buckets of money behind you, you can make people believe anything!  And that’s just what the soy industry has done, for one simple reason… there is BIG bucks in soy, nothing more nothing less.
