Buyer Beware

Have you ever picked one grocery item over another because of the health claims on the label? You may have been duped. That’s because terms like fat free or all natural are often slapped on a food item that may not be healthy at all. Look carefully at the ingredients list and see for yourself what is actually contains.

One that recently came to light was on a Fructose Sugar packet. With a lovely logo on the front showing a healthy jumping person and saying “Natural Fruit Sugars” what is did not say on the from was also contains Aspartame.

So look at the ingredients, not just the front!!

Aspartame   aspartamo-E951

On Statins? Beware

It never ceases to amaze me that so many people who take medications have no idea that need to be wary about eating certain foods. The one that I see in clinic again and again are Statins.

Grapefruit & Statins?

Grapefruit & Statins?

Many people taking statins do not know that they should avoid grapefruit. This fruit slows down how the body breaks down the drug and you have more than you should do in the blood stream. So when taking medication please check the instructions in the packet BEFORE taking them!

Time to Optimise your Vitamin D Levels?

Thousands of studies have been done on the health effects of vitamin D, and research shows that it is involved in the biochemical function of all cells and tissues in your body, including your immune system and function.

The Importance of Vitamin D

The Importance of Vitamin D

When you’re deficient in vitamin D, your health can deteriorate in any number of ways, because your cells actually need the active form of vitamin D to gain access to the genetic blueprints stored inside the cell.

It’s been estimated that if vitamin D levels were raised among the general population, it could prevent chronic diseases that claim nearly one million lives throughout the world each year!

So please, take advantage of this fabulous opportunity to get this vital education free of charge, and share it with everyone you know so they can be empowered too.

Besides addressing your diet, optimising your vitamin D level is perhaps one of the most potent ways you can improve your health.
