Whether you drink milk, eat cheese and butter, or consume dairy in bread, coffee or cereal, you are feeding your body something that is basically unhealthy, harmful to the environment, and cruel to animals. As you will learn here, dairy products do not contain any nutrients that you cannot obtain from other sources, so there is absolutely no reason to continue consuming it.
Extreme Cruelty to Dairy cows

Cows provide milk for a period of ten months after they have given birth. The cows on dairy farms are repeatedly artificially inseminated to keep them almost permanently pregnant and permanently lactating. Many cows are given hormones which make them produce large numbers of embryos that are then implanted into other cows.

Dairy cows are … Read More

Over thousands of years, your body has evolved to handle a stressful event by enabling you to fight and/or flee. Your distant ancestors had to fight those with whom they were competing for food and flee from predators who wanted to eat them. Your more recent ancestors’ fight or flight responses were finely honed during centuries of European wars and persecution by religious dictatorships.

The events that stress out your generation are very different and no longer require a physical fight or flight response. Between catching the overcrowded tube to work, the possibility of missing a deadline, and getting food on the table before the kids’ bedtime, all your modern stressors basically require you to stand or sit in one place. … Read More

A ‘superfood’ is a type of food that is especially nutrient-rich and that is packed with anti-oxidants, vitamins, and healthy minerals. These are the foods that should be prominent on our shopping lists and used liberally in our recipes.

By now everyone is familiar with the classic superfoods like kale, goji berries, and quinoa, but the list is in reality much longer than most people realise. The following foods are all exceptionally nutritious, affordable, and capable of being added to a wide variety of dishes.

Watercress

After ranking foods on the United Nations’ and Institute of Medicine’s 17 healthiest nutrients, the U.S. National Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion concluded that watercress was the very best of all the superfoods, even … Read More

Depression has gotten a makeover. It is no longer a disease of the mind. According to researchers, there is a direct correlation between depression and inflammation in the body.

What is Inflammation?

Inflammation occurs when a group of proteins known as cytokines access the brain and send out signals of sickness or depression. Cytokines usually develop in response to an infection in the body and have been known to impair learning and memory.

Depression May Be Caused By Long Standing Inflammation

Research has established that pro-inflammatory cytokines induce not only symptoms of sickness, but also true major depressive disorders in physically ill patients with no previous history of mental disorders (Dantzer et al, 2008). Distress and anxiety have been shown to stimulate the … Read More

The more milk you drink, the healthier and stronger your bones will be right? Well this is not the case according to a recent study that has linked drinking three or more glasses of milk a day to dying prematurely. This type of evidence should leave government officials and healthcare workers rethinking how much they try to push the so called ‘good white’ stuff.

High Milk Consumption Study Published in the BMJ

This surprising study, conducted in Sweden, published in last month’s edition of the British Medical Journal examined whether high milk consumption could be associated with mortality and fractures in women and men.

It was conducted across 3 counties in Sweden, where 2 community based cohorts were used, a group … Read More

I am a huge fan of coconut oil and have been for many years now since I learnt that cooking with vegetable oils (especially to the high temperatures most of us do), is bad news for our health.

You see the thing is most vegetable oils including sunflower and olive oil, are really delicate structurally. So as soon as they are heated to high temperatures, their chemical structure changes and becomes something totally different to the vegetable oil you first knew when it hadn’t been subjected to heat. The end result for vegetable oil is a toxic substance. There is no other word for it.

Coconut oil isn’t like vegetable oils, and is far more robust if you like structurally. … Read More

We all have demons to battle in this life. Except some of us choose to use food to exercise these demons. Using food to make you feel happier can quickly cause many health problems, including weight gain and depression. This kind of self abuse needs addressing and stopping before it stops you.

Learn to Accept You Have a Problem

Food can be used in two ways – one is to abuse the body and make it tired, overweight and trigger some scary diseases and the other is to create incredible health where you thrive. There is no in-between when it comes to food.

What kind of relationship do you have with food? Perhaps this is the first time you have ever been asked … Read More

Do you suffer from chronic gas, bloating, poor memory, constipation, feeling nauseous, have been diagnosed with IBS or even eczema? Even if you have just one of these symptoms then it is extremely likely the cause could be coming from your diet, and that a food intolerance could be to blame.

What is a food intolerance?

The area of food intolerance is a little more controversial than that of food allergy. This is because food allergy is quite straight forward to diagnose, as symptoms typically range from skin reactions that includes itching, rashes, swelling, vomiting diarrhoea and respiratory symptoms such as coughing and sneezing, a blocked or runny nose, to asthma – all of which show up almost immediately after the offending … Read More
