The “drink eight glasses of water per day” lie, by Dr. Eric Berg DC

By Dr Eric Berg “Drink more water! Stay hydrated! Drink LOTS of water!” It seems like pretty uncontroversial advice, and we hear it all the time, paired with promises of fat loss and toxin elimination. We even hear the specific tip- eight glasses of water a day- so often it’s practically unassailable. But that’s just…

The Magical Magnificence of Magnesium

By Annie Dieu-Le-Veut When I talk of the magic of magnesium, I don’t mean the sleight-of-hand tricks of the stage conjurer. I’m talking about real magic, the kind that the goddess of the sea performs every single second of every single day and night in her submarine laboratory. As a shaman, I have journeyed into…

How a Ketogenic diet may help with cancer

By Dr. Mercola To some, a ketogenic diet amounts to nothing less than a drug-free cancer treatment. The diet calls for eliminating carbohydrates, replacing them with healthy fats and protein. The premise is that since cancer cells need glucose to thrive, and carbohydrates turn into glucose in your body, then cutting out carbs literally starves…

Ruby red cabbage sauerkraut – the highest source of Vitamin C on the planet

  From Annie’s Kitchen Sauerkraut is a popular fermented food these days, although it’s usually made with white cabbage. But for me, ruby red cabbage sauerkraut is the sassiest lady in town and especially when she’s spiced up with garlic, ginger, chillies and caraway seeds. Apart from the taste being out of this world, there…

The scientist attacked for proving GMO dangers wins defamation suit in French court

by Paul Fassa Remember Professor Giles-Eric Seralini and his research team at the University of Caan in France?

The Miraculous Rejuvenatory Benefits of Slow-Simmered Beef Marrow Broth

From Annie’s Kitchen It’s ironic how we’ve been quite happily feeding bone marrow to our dogs to give them a bushy coat and shiny eyes without realising that it could do the same for us.

Welcome to the nutrition revolution – part 1: vitamin K2

From Annie’s Kitchen I’ve been writing about holistic nutrition, professionally, for about 30 years. But never have I witnessed such a turnaround in how we’re now thinking and what we’re now recommending. And never before have I experienced such a turnaround in my own health – through following the new guidelines – and I don’t…

New tooth-growth at age 66, thanks to a change in diet!

From Annie’s Kitchen I’ve a lower front tooth that has been eroding for some time – probably more than decade – and it was gradually turning into a stump. It was eroding not because I wasn’t taking enough calcium but because the calcium couldn’t be transported to where it was needed, and so it was…

Are vegans more spiritual or closer to God?

From Annie’s Kitchen I had a discussion with a friend, the other day, who was insisting that being vegan was the more moral option and thus his veganism made him more spiritual and closer to God.

Manuka honey kills more bacteria than all available antibiotics

Not all honey is created equal. While the benefits of raw, unprocessed honey have been well-documented over the centuries, Australian researchers have found one type of honey, called Manuka honey, to be better than all known antibiotics. Manuka honey is produced by bees that forage on the nectar of Leptospermum Scoparium, or New Zealand’s Manuka…

Why soaking your grains helps with weight loss and diabetes

by Rosemary Hansen Why soak grains? You can soak grains before cooking or baking them. Soaking grains (and nuts, seeds, and legumes) helps to neutralize phytic acid, an anti-nutrient, present in them. Phytic acid blocks the absorption of critical vitamins and minerals (phosphorus, calcium, iron, zinc) from being assimilated into the body. Phytic acid also…
