Natural thyroid support can come in many different guises or forms, but the most effective will be looking at the imbalance of the thyroid gland, rather than whether it is over- or under producing.
The thyroid gland, situated in the front of the neck, is an incredibly important hormone producer. The hormones, known as T3 and T4, are used by Continue reading
ADD and ADHD have become common conditions that doctors and psychiatrists make today. Even school teachers make unprofessional recommendations for the use of the medications so commonly used in these conditions, largely because of their inability to manage the child.
I believe that some parents (and doctors) can jump to the conclusion of Continue reading

I am no fan of antibiotics, but do appreciate many swear by them. However as antibiotic resistance continues to increase across the world, it might be a good idea to understand why this is happening and what alternatives there are, just in case.
Louis Pasteur is generally considered to be the founder of antibiotics, although this is not universally accepted. On his death bed, he recognised that bacteria was not Continue reading
In this video, Dr Rajan Sankaran shares his experience of homeopathic treatment in chronic diseases such as diabetes.
What is the best health insurance? Is it the cheapest quote that offers you the most cover for all members of the family? Is it the middle quote that offers you a range of health care options? Is it the most expensive quote that covers every eventuality? Is it really any of these things?
Instead of considering the ever increasing mine fields of competing insurance companies (who all make a very handsome profit from you), I invite you to think about this question laterally. First, what are you hoping to gain from your cover?
For most people, this is reassurance Continue reading
Dr Sarah Eames says why she believes homeopathy has a lot to offer the NHS (British health system) and patients.
To be healthy both physically and mentally, we need work and play in equal proportions. But this rarely happens in today’s frantic world. Instead, work is dominant, often viewed as a virtue or simply a necessity.
For a few, work is highly enjoyable and becomes almost like play. Certainly, this is how all work should be, but rarely is. This is because we have been Continue reading
The ethical supermarket considers the whole process, from farmer to consumer.
As the problem with medical drugs escalate and gain notoriety, people are looking for natural alternatives to antibiotics and other health care solutions. Antibiotics have enjoyed a good run for their money, and have often been heralded as a super drug. Certainly they have had an influence on the world, but has it been a positive one?

For many people, life is a drudge. It is no longer exciting or stimulating. However, it is possible to learn how to change your life around, to bring back the spring in your step, to wake up looking forward to the day.
Humans are now so disconnected from the real world of nature, of sensation, of awareness, that it is not unreasonable to appreciate that this leads to apathy, to drudgery, even to depression. When we no longer live by the songs of our souls, when we no longer listen to our intuition, we are heading for destruction, just as the planet is at the hands of humanity.
It is only when we are connected to our inner beings, to the Continue reading

With new ideas springing up about the best diet for health, a common question is, is the paleo diet healthy? The proponents of it say it is, not surprisingly. And there are many good aspects about it. But a study appeared in the International Journal of Exercise Science claiming that it increases cholesterol levels.
44 healthy adults were studied for 10 weeks on a paleo diet. At the end of the experiment, the LDL cholesterol had increased by 12.5 mg/dL and total cholesterol by 10.1 mg/dL. Triglycerides had also increased slightly. Those most affected were the ones who had been the healthiest before starting the diet.
What is the paleo diet? It takes the idea from trying to duplicate what our Continue reading

Mostly the treatment consists of simply managing each presenting symptom with the use of antibiotics, decongestants, bronchodilators and mucolytics. No true healing is possible with medical care.
This condition usually makes its appearance in young children, before the age of three, although sometimes Continue reading
