Why Take Care of Your Heart?

The heart is said to be a place we feel emotion and love. But in reality it is a vital organ we rely on for life. As we know the heart pumps blood around the body, feeding every living cell, via blood vessels known as arteries or veins.

What is Colon Detoxification?

What is colon detoxification? Put simply, it is the process of clearing the colon of excess toxins that have built up over time from the foods and drink consumed. The problem with this build up is that it inhibits the function of the entire intestinal tract.

This can lead to many nutrient deficiencies which can have a negative effect upon one’s health. For instance, a lack of vitamin D can result in brittle bones or a reduction in bone...

Ill-absorbed nutrients result in poor health whether that be in the form of suffering from chronic constipation or diarrhoea, which themselves can be quite uncomfortable to live with, to food allergies, skin conditions or iron deficiency anaemia...

Losing Weight is a Journey

Losing weight is a very personal journey and each individual will have their own process of succeeding. Recently Kim Kardashian has revealed it was the Atkins diet that helped her achieve her weight loss goals and lose an amazing 70 pounds! (That’s 5 stone to you and me). Huge success. Diets such as Atkins can be difficult for many to stick to as it is strict on food groups you can eat. Not everyone can stay on track, especially when certain foods are ‘forbidden’ – this just makes you want them more. If such diets do not appeal to you, and you wish to continue eating all food groups (in...
