Posts tagged “Health”

This week we’re going to repeat a post we originally wrote in the early days of our blog, back in 2016. It follows several similar conversations we’ve had with Clients recently, which is always a hint it would make a good topic for a blog post (!). Sadly, it’s even more true today than it was then although, on the plus side, there does seem to be much more awareness that there is another, more natural approach to health… 
So, here we go… 
Having been in practice for a number of years we’re aware that our perspective on life generally – and health in particular – is rather different to everyone else’s (!). Or, as a younger family member so delightfully puts it, “You’re not normal, why can’t you be like everyone else?” Much to his annoyance we take this as a compliment, rather than the wind up he was intending! 
We often talk about the importance of spending time outside every day. Not only does it feel good to have a break away from the hurly burly of modern life, but natural daylight plays an important part in helping set our natural body rhythms. Often referred to as the Circadian Rhythms, they control many different body functions including the sleep – wake cycle, release of hormones, body temperature, eating habits and digestion. 
Before we go any further, let’s quickly dispel one very common misconception. So far as your body’s concerned, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a beautiful sunny day or a wet overcast one. It’s being outside in natural wavelength light that’s the important thing. You’ll still reap the benefits regardless of what the weather’s doing. 
Yes, it’s another case of déjà vu! 
Having revisited the topic of Glyphosate a couple of a weeks’ ago – you can find it here if you missed it – we’re going to take another look at a topic that’s turned out to be much more complicated than anticipated. 
It relates to one of those health mantras that simply hasn’t delivered the desired results, despite having been part of conventional health advice since the 1960’s. While it’s aimed at those with Heart or Kidney problems, it’s generally considered a “good thing” for our health and has become a basic diet guideline. To adopt a low salt diet. 
It’s fair to say there are some topics we never expected to write about – let alone more than once – and this certainly applies to the subject of today’s blog post. What is equally true is that the initial concern of its link to certain Cancers, particularly Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, was only the start. We last wrote about this topic back in 2019 and the post can be found here
Sadly, it’s become increasingly clear that it has a much more general – and insidious – effect on our health. One which isn’t immediately obvious, if at all, but helps start the dominoes falling in completely the wrong direction and may explain the increase in many seemingly unrelated health problems over recent years. Ah, now the choice of picture makes sense! 
Goodness, mid September already, it must be time for our usual pre Winter post about the forthcoming “Colds and Flu” season. And, with the mainstream media already busy talking about the “next pandemic” and how steps are already being taken to avoid it, this year we’re going to focus on applying a little commonsense to the issue. 
Let’s start with the very obvious. Well, to us, if not to everyone else (!). 
And, if you’re wondering why we’ve put it in emboldened block capitals, it’s to get your attention to this very simple fact – and one the mainstream media continues to completely ignore. 
A couple of days earlier than usual – just to confuse everyone (!) – a quick post to say that we’re going to take a short break from our weekly blog posts, back as usual on Wednesday 20th September. 
However, with over 450 posts on our blog page, there’s still plenty to choose from in the meantime! 
You may have heard about Collagen before, although most likely in connection with skin creams for “more mature skin” that promise a radiant, wrinkle free complexion. And, if that sounds far too good to be true, then you’d be right as you’ll find out a bit later. 
However, Collagen is much more important than simply helping provide an age defying complexion (!). It’s a vital component of the body itself and plays an important part in good health. 
Traditionally thought of as an older person’s problem – and the butt of many less than sympathetic jokes / jibes (!) – poor memory seems to be affecting more and more people. And at a younger age too. 
As always, there are many theories about this, not to mention well hyped solutions, although none seem to deliver the promised for results. And, “yes” we have our own theories too (!). 
Not surprisingly, the use of hand sanitisers and specialised cleaning products has rocketed in recent years, fuelled by the ongoing madness and a relentless public health campaign. The rationale behind them both is very simple. By killing germs on people’s hands – as well as other surfaces they’d been in contact with – the spread of disease would be slowed down and madness brought to an end. 
While this all sounds completely reasonable – and the sensible thing to do – as so often is the case, it isn’t quite that simple. 
To us, it’s very simple AND very obvious. Eating a healthy diet AND drinking plenty of water are one of the cornerstones of good health. After all, if we don’t put the correct “fuel” in our tanks, how on earth can we expect our bodies to function in the way we would like? Or, put another way, “rubbish in, rubbish out.” 
Despite this, many people seem to find deciding what to eat completely confusing and overwhelming. Let alone what may – or may not be (!) – a good choice.
