Can Someone With Diabetes Take Natural Progesterone?
Sally Longden

Watch what you eat. NO junk! Sugar is our worst poison as it throws you into insulin resistance which prevents ovulation and causes Polycystic Ovary Disease. (Progesterone will help this, but may take a few more
months than just 3). What happens with PCOD is that once insulin resistance starts it does throw other hormones out of balance and the LH and FSH, hormones that are responsible for releasing one egg per month behave badly. Many ovum start to mature, but none reach maturation and therefore not one is released.

A Progesterone Saga
Robert Gottesman

Why don’t I know this information about natural progesterone?  I was puzzled and a bit distressed. I am a well trained, University of Chicago physician with 25 years of practice.

Avocado Benefits

In fact, cut out all fat and you'll die. It's interesting that mother's milk contains between 4 to 5 times as much fat as protein, because in the human infant it's the brain that grows at an incredible rate. Compare that with the cow, for example; the fat and protein are in roughly equal amounts. It's the body of a calf that needs to grow if it is to survive in the wild. Interesting too that mother's milk varies markedly depending on what she eats. If mother is trying to lose weight by cutting out all the healthy fat in her diet, her baby too will suffer from a deficiency.

Bars For Autism And Downs
Penni Du Plessis

What happens for me in my day-to-day life is very different than the world you move through. Not only do I not have filters for information and so often I’m on sensory overload, I also hear many sounds all at once, so people’s conversation, sounds of air moving, doors shutting, cars driving by, people breathing, skin rubbing on skin these are all sounds that sometimes are happening at the same volume for me. I also hear what’s going on in people’s heads I see the pictures that they project and believe me they are not always pretty.

Climbing_the_mountain_to_our_own_greatness
Paula Quinsee

We all have a dream, a hope, a wish to achieve and excel at something in our lives.
But many of us seldom realise our dreams due to several factors such as our mindset, our attitude and our self-limiting beliefs.
However the only way we grow and evolve is to step out of our comfort zones and stretch ourselves into new areas we have not been in before. Not only does this open up our creativity, it also builds our resilience and ability to be flexible with change as change is the only constant in our lives.

Could Candinda Be The Culprit For A Myriad Of Health Problems?
Stuart Wilson

Candida growth is usually kept under control by the immune system and the “good bugs” in the large intestine. When not controlled effectively, resulting infestation leads to a condition known as candidiasis – an overgrowth of Candida Albicans, impossible for a normal immune system to eradicate. It can produce a sufficient quantity of toxins to chronically poison the host individual.


 
Curing A Case Of The Workout Pees
Shane Cass

“I ask every single woman I treat if they ever have incontinence. They always get this deer-in-the-headlights look,” says Ann Wendel, PT, ATC, CMTPT, founder of Prana Physical Therapy in Alexandria, Va. “Most say no initially, but I go down the list: ‘So, you never, ever leak — even a tiny bit — when you exercise?’ They say ‘Um, no.’ I ask ‘How about when you cough, sneeze, jump, run, do a box jump, a double under, or you jump on a trampoline?’ Then they say ‘Well yeah, of course, I’ve had kids!'”


 
Dealing With Redness
Avene

Redness: normal or pathological? Getting red in the face after making some exercise for two hours is normal. Irregular breathing is also to be expected. Sometimes the redness ambushes you first thing in the morning, or you might get all red after eating something spicy for lunch. But besides these everyday trials of modern life, why on earth does the face become red all over, in huge unsightly blotches? It's all because of some little blood vessels that cover the entire skin surface.


 
Detoxing And Weaning Off Ssris Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors
Hayley Rautenbach

Millions of people worldwide suffer from depression, anxiety, and other mental conditions. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) can improve a wide variety of these conditions and, as a result, are commonly prescribed. SSRIs work by blocking a receptor in brain cells that reabsorb the chemical serotonin, thereby more of this chemical available to "amplify" its ability to send messages between nerve cells. Brain circuits that "run" on serotonin messaging are known to influence mood, but the exact way SSRIs improve depression isn't clear.


 
Difference Between Counselling And Life Coaching
Lets Live Life Coaching

People often think that life coaching and counselling are the same thing. There is a common misconception that in both, life coaching and counselling, the patient or help-seeker sits on a chair and talks about his/her problems to the life coach or therapist respectively. However, although there are one-on-one sessions with life coaches too, a life coach focuses more on overcoming problems and negativity and getting the client out of the rut towards a more positive life.

Energy Healing - Luxury Or Necessity?
Tracy White

What happens when people neglect their energy hygene? This is a graphic description of why energy healing is an absolute necessity, and anyone who has the money to buy alcohol or cigarettes, or who can afford to go to gym, or any form of entertainment, can certainly afford to tend to their energetic health. To ignore the part of ourselves which is a permanent atribute and one which we cannot live with out is irresponsible.

Herbal Parasite Cleanse For Adults, Children And Pets
Desiree Campher

In her book, The Cure for all diseases, Dr Clark makes many references to the role that parasites play in the generation of disease. She claims that because of the solvent exposure we have in the 21st century and more specifically in the past 50 years, we now have what she calls a “new generation of disease”. She calls this “fluke disease” and documents the correlation between the unprecedented migration and replication of flukes in the system with a number of “new diseases” notably cancer, AIDS, endometriosis, Lupus, Hodgkin’s, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Seizures, Migraines, Depression etc.

How Does Raw Cacao Help You Shed Those Kilos
Faithful To Nature

There’s an exciting buzz going around that chocolate can help you lose weight. Sound too good to be true?

That may be because you need to distinguish between the average chocolate you buy off the shelf, filled with all sorts of fats, starches, dairy and sugars – and then its magical ingredient cacao – the food of the gods!

This superfood in its raw form is much different and holds the key to these claims. If you are wanting to experience some chocolate indulgence plus a svelt bod, cacao is best eaten raw and sweetened with healthy sweeteners such as raw honey or agave.

Despite the millions of rands spent annually on weight loss clubs, diet books, diet pills, liquid diets and fancy spas still more and more people are struggling to control their weight.

The result is often weight gain to a level that exceeds the previous high weight.


 
How Wonderful Is A Woman
Claudia Slattery

I was a sporty girl and I have to admit I spent most of my teenage years and my 20’s hating my period. It was a pain when I had a gala or a ballet lesson.

It was only when I started to question....

Laser Light Shown To Initiate Healing Processes In Cells
Dr Arzhan Surazakov

How our physical body is able to initiate and complete its own healing is one of its most remarkable features. Even a simple finger cut initiates responses from dozens of types of cells – the smallest units in our body – coordinated to achieve specific results, such as stopping blood loss, killing foreign bacteria and preventing infection, creating new blood capillaries, repairing and regenerating skin layers. These processes rely on the astonishing intelligence of our cells and the different ways in which they can communicate and function together towards one goal.

Dr. Mercola

A growing body of research suggests there may be a powerful connection between the foods you eat and your risk of Alzheimer's disease and dementia.In one recent animal study, researchers were able to induce dementia by disrupting the proper signaling of insulin in the brain. Previous animal research has shown that calorie restriction protects against aging, oxidative stress and neurodegenerative pathologies, and that reduced levels of IGF-1 mediate some of these protective effects.


 
Mammograms Versus Thermograms
Marcelle Southey

The news report I saw knocking thermograms was based on ONE case of a woman who received a false negative, indicating she didn't have cancer when in fact she did. The reporter then trotted out sound bites from a couple of radiologists (who make their living off of X-rays) to say that of course thermograms aren't good for much and women should stick to mammograms.


 
Mammography Vs Thermography
Marcelle Southey

Misinformation and misunderstanding about the benefits of thermography. A thermogram pinpoints the abnormal heat levels that cancerous and "this is important" pre-cancerous areas generate. These areas pour out excessive heat long before a mammogram or any physical examination can detect a thing.

Dr. med. Roger Eltbogen

Menstrual cycle irregularities (MCIs) and the premenstrual syndrome (PMS) are a common disorder in women during their reproductive lifespan. The prevalence for MCIs is about 20% in young women [1].

Strength Training For Weight Loss Success

The Banting Diet: Low-carbing Your Way To A Healthier, Longer Life
Juliette Davidson

If you have just heard of the Banting Diet, chances are, you may have wondered whether this is just another fad diet belonging to the low-carb craze dominated by the Atkins and Paleo diets. In fact, the Banting Diet is considered the ‘grandfather’ of all these diets, having originated in the 1860s. It all began with William Banting, an English undertaker who worked for the Royal Family. Banting was having trouble losing weight – in fact, he was morbidly obese, having tried (and failed) at a plethora of diets and growing exasperated, before he took the advice of physician, William Harvey.

The Undisputed Cure For Mrsa - P1
Information supplied by Shane Cass

Why are medical authorities so suspiciously silent about this simple sure-fire cure for the deadly new MRSA super pathogens?

Newspaper headlines around the world are now ablaze with warnings from the health authorities regarding the rapid spread of the deadly flesh-eating MRSA (methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus) and a number of other drug-resistant “super pathogens“ that are now steadily moving into the general population.


 
The Undisputed Cure For Mrsa - P2
Information supplied by Shane Cass

You see, the drug industry is afraid of silver because it is a completely natural substance, and in its liquid colloidal form – the best form for human use – it cannot be patented and monopolized. In fact, with a simple, inexpensive device called a colloidal silver generator, anyone can turn pure silver into the specific liquid colloidal form most useful to fighting infections and healing the human body. And it can be done for only pennies a quart!What’s more, because it is not a drug, anyone can sell it. Therefore, the pharmaceutical industry cannot maintain a monopoly on it, like they do with their overly-expensive and in many cases now-useless pharmaceutical antibiotic drugs.


 
The Undisputed Cure For Mrsa - P3
Information supplied by Shane Cass

The evidence for silver continues to grow so strongly that even the news media is being forced to acknowledge it.
For example, in late October of last year, silver was shown to cure a confirmed MRSA infection in an Albany, Georgia man whose doctor had ordered immediate surgery to remove his infected tissues. As you’ll see in the story below, the emergency surgery never had to take place, thanks to the infection-fighting power of silver.


 
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


 
Three Significant Reasons To Detox
Desiree Campher

We, know, at least instinctively, that we need to clean up our bodies and our lifestyles.

We have tried a host of allopathic and possibly even complementary approaches but the problems are not gone, and we have this niggling feeling that we should be able to do something more to feel better. We are right to attempt to detox, as we know our lifestyles are toxic.

What Is An Eating Disorder?
Linda Clarke

Eating disorders can develop during any stage in life but typically appear during the teen years or young adulthood. Classified as a medical illness, appropriate treatment can be highly effectual for many of the specific types of eating disorders. Although these conditions are treatable, the symptoms and consequences can be detrimental and deadly if not addressed.


 
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.


 
What Is Msm
Desiree Campher

Biologically active sulphur is one of the most critical nutrients for our bodies to remain youthful and energetic.  As we age, along with a diet deficient in essential nutrients, our bodies become stiff, our cells become rigid, and our overall energy begins to rapidly decelerate.

MSM is an organic sulphur compound that’s naturally derived during the earth’s rain cycle.  Sulphur is present in many natural unprocessed foods, but it’s quickly lost during the cooking process.  MSM is gaining a lot of attention due to the recent focus on longevity and anti-aging technologies.


 
Why You Should Take Responsibility For Your Own Well-being And Happiness.
