    By |February 10th, 2022|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: , , , |

    In the past, many more men than women died from heart disease, but in recent years the numbers have evened out, with more women than men dying from strokes. For most people over 50, having cancer or losing one’s memory holds the greatest fear, but in fact more people die prematurely from diseases of the heart and arteries than anything else – roughly half from heart attacks and a quarter from strokes.

    By |October 20th, 2021|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: , , , , |

    Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the second-most common infection in women and as such their causes and treatment options deserve attention here. Most cases of UTIs can be cured by a course of antibiotics aided by increased fluid intake. The problem lies with those sufferers who have recurring infections, often due to poor inner self-healing. These are more likely to develop serious kidney problems if the chronic infection is not dealt with effectively.

    Osteoporosis and your Skeleton – use it or lose it

    By |September 5th, 2021|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: |

    The word osteoporosis (from the Greek for ‘bone’ and ‘pore’) tells us that the affected bones have holes in their structure. Osteoporosis has been called the ‘silent disease’, progressing without any outward sign, sometimes for decades, until a fracture occurs. Today, regular bone mineral density (BMD) tests have broken this silence – the disease is now in the open, a challenge to be overcome with specific nutrition, supplements, medicine and exercise.

    Death Begins in the Colon

    By |March 25th, 2021|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

    I believe that the source of inflammation in chronic diseases lies in the gut. The now famous quote ‘Death begins in the colon’ originated with the Russian Nobel Prize- winning biologist Elie Metchnikoff (1845 - 1916), who postulated that the toxic by-products of the bowel bacteria are responsible for many diseases.

    Inflammation: Friend or Foe?

    Physicians realise that inflammation in the walls of arteries is probably the most important risk factor in cardiovascular disease, more important even than cholesterol levels.

    How to Manage Sinusitis Naturally

    By |April 3rd, 2020|Categories: Improving Health|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

    Over-use of antibiotics and cortisone sprays has led to more virulent forms of bacterial infections as well as new fungal infections of the sinus cavities.
