An active attitude towards health
~ even healthy people need health maintenance
The global natural products market is growing at an astonishing rate because the public has become disillusioned with pharmaceutical drugs and their myriad side effects. In Natural Medicine World we feature only products that are completely above board, and we welcome your letters should we miss something.
The great thing about a good lifestyle is that it depends on you; it is drug free, it supports health and is not difficult to do. So why do so many people avoid going there and opt for drugs instead? Dr Bernard Brom answers: ‘Perhaps it is because healthy people are healthy and don’t think they need to do anything about their health, and sick people believe that they need to go to a doctor and get drugs to treat what is wrong with them. Neither point of view is good enough.’

Gut health cannot be emphasised enough, especially in people with any form of mental condition (depression, anxiety, brain fog). Antidepressants can be ineffective because a possible underlying brain inflammation goes undetected. Be sure to watch the video on the types of inflammation and connect the dots… inflammatory conditions can make the blood-brain barrier hyper-permeable. Start with the gut!
