Ignorant Is Sometimes Bliss
Dr Debbie Smith

When we are told certain things by an authority figure, we tend to incorporate that as part of our belief system, particularly if we are vulnerable, not feeling well and in excruciating pain, and we base our healing on that often erroneous belief. After nine months my surgeon said that no more improvement was possible, as if that was that. After those nine months of relentless effort, I was inclined to believe him.


 
Immune Building And Flu And Cold Fighters
Desiree Campher

It is apparent that an article on flu/colds and Immune Boosters is appropriate at this time as we experience radical changes in our weather patterns. Not only do we get winter flu but also change of seasons and summer flu. Probably the worst part of this is that you are not quite sick enough to stay at home, but still feel very out of sorts. The headaches, blocked nose and inability to concentrate, fevers, congested chest and all over body aches and pains, creates energy of total misery.

The Wonderful Benefits Of Fennel
Desiree Campher

Fennel is well known in the culinary world for its anise-like flavour, but also has natural sources of vitamins, minerals and fibre. It is renowned for its power to combat digestive discomforts. Fennel seed contains anethole, a compound that has antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. The volatile oils in the seeds are known to increase the secretion of digestive enzymes in the stomach, which in turn promotes better digestion and nutrient absorption. It also acts as a mild laxative and has anti-oxidants that leap in to defend the body from free radical damage. The seed can be chewed to relieve heart burn and freshens the breath


 
What Is Lysine
Desiree Campher

Lysine is an amino acid found in the protein of foods such as beans, cheese, yogurt, meat, milk, brewer's yeast, wheat germ, and other animal proteins. Proteins derived from grains such as wheat and corn tend to be low in lysine content. The bio-availability of lysine is reduced with food preparation methods, such as heating foods in the presence of a reducing sugar (i.e., fructose or glucose); heating foods in the presence of sucrose or yeast; and cooking in the absence of moisture at high temperatures. The average 70 kg human requires 800 to 3,000 mg of lysine daily.
