Ills and Chills

Stay naturally strong and healthy this winter with colostrum.

It is widely known that colostrum provides vital support for our immune system in our first few days of life, but it also provides benefits as we age, for older children and adults.

Colostrum is nature’s first food – the pre-milk fluid a breastfeeding mother provides her newborn to assist the baby’s healthy development. It contains a number of immune components, including immunoglobulins (also known as antibodies), growth factors, proteins, vitamins and minerals.

Growing Healthy Children

Kids give little regard to hygiene, resulting in them having an increased exposure to bacteria and viruses.

Kids, they get into everything.

Whether they’re hard at play in the mud outside, helping the dog with his dinner or sharing toys with friends, kids give little regard to hygiene, resulting in them having an increased exposure to bacteria and viruses.
This tactile nature of children is important for their learning and development, but how do you guard against the increased risk of germs?

In a time of excess allergies people are now questioning whether the plethora of antibacterial products is in part to blame for this - based on the hygiene hypothesis – which in short is the theory that by killing a…

Heart Health

Atherosclerosis and Cardiovascular Disease

Atherosclerosis is a build up of plaque inside your arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygenrich blood to your heart and other parts of your body. Plaque is made up of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances found in the blood. With an unhealthy lifestyle, increased age, other co-morbidities and oxidised circulating cholesterol, plaque sticks to artery walls and hardens, narrowing the arteries. This limits the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your organs and other parts of your body. Atherosclerosis can lead to the serious problem of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) which can often lead to death.

Can you be Slim and Unhealthy?

It’s interesting the stereotypes and generalisations we make as a society. Take for example weight.

There hasn’t been an era where judgements haven’t been made about a person based on their weight – excessive or deficient. Carrying excess weight used to be a sign of wealth; essentially the poor could not afford enough food to become overweight. Since the Industrial Revolution and the introduction of mass production commercially made food, canning and better transport infrastructure, the relative price and availability of food has given people with lower incomes increased access to food. This of course has had many great benefits, but as we’ve developed so too has the quality of processed food and not for the better – typically it is devoid of nutrients and high in fat, sugar, salt or calo…

Re-Calibrate for Weight Loss

Last time we talked about the concept of recalibrating the body to return to healthy ageing and optimal health.

Naturally part of ageing in good form and staying healthy is maintaining a healthy weight…

There are lots of products out there with big promises to help you attain this. But are they of any value? Given that up to 95% of all weight loss attempts fail, with dieters gaining back all of the weight they lost, sometimes more within 5 years, I’d suggest most of them aren’t very helpful.
There are a number of reasons for this – many diets are based around calorie counting and grossly restricting the amount of food you eat. That will lead to weight loss, but it’s not just fat you lose, it’s also muscle, plus it slows do…

Sleep – Are you getting enough?

Do you bounce out of bed in the morning, refreshed and ready for the day ahead? Or, is it more a groggy, grumpy shuffle to the kitchen for a wake-up jolt from a cup of coffee?

Good quality sleep is essential to body and mind.
It affects the way we look and feel and how well we perform during the day. Yet so many people struggle to sleep peacefully and don’t get anywhere near the recommended eight to nine hours of sleep a night.
Research suggests many people only get around six hours and 75% have trouble sleeping soundly at least a couple of nights a week.

    There are many reasons to make peaceful slumber a number one priority every night. …

Sleep your way to Health

Sleep plays a vital role in good health and wellbeing throughout your life.

Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, as well as your safety and the safety of those around you. Like good diet and exercise, sleep is a critical component to overall health.

Sleep deprivation is linked to an increased risk of high blood pressure, stroke heart disease, CVD, diabetes and kidney disease. Being deficient in sleep is also linked with an increased risk of obesity; in fact some studies have shown that for each hour of sleep lost your risk of obesity increases.

Stress Less for Good Health

When you’re feeling stressed the last thing you want to be told is to “relax” or “don’t worry so much”. While that is indeed sage advice and no doubt said by someone who cares about you, it is very difficult to merely switch off our stress

That being said, there are a number of things that you can do to help manage your stress. First of all though, let’s look at some of the triggers that generate stress. Everyone is exposed to some degree of stress in their lifetime, in fact one form, called Eustress is actually beneficial stress as it helps to motivate us and get us through a given situation.
Long term chronic stress or negative situations however, can cause us a lot of distress.

Re-Calibrate your body for Optimal Health

The human body is truly wondrous.

From the enormous growth and neurological development that takes us from birth to fully functioning adults, to the continual monitoring of our surroundings by the immune system and so much more, the human body is a highly intelligent organism.

So why then, do we suffer from disease and illness? To be honest, in most cases it’s not a design fault of the body but much more likely a result of our environment – that is things such as diet, lifestyle, daily habits, increased stress, poor sleep, pollution, suboptimal nutrients in modern foods and lack of regular physical activity.
Over the dec…

Is Low-Carb eating the answer to Obesity?

The latest stats are in and they don’t paint a pretty picture of New Zealanders, or of any other nation for that matter.

A review of more than 1,700 studies covering 188 countries from 1980 to 2013 failed to find a single country that had been able to reverse the worrying obesity trend that has resulted in 2.1 billion people being either overweight or obese. That’s nearly 1 out of every 3 people in our global community. Back in 1980 this figure was 857 million, or 20% of the global population.

New Zealand come out above Australia for our rates of both adult and childhood obesity. Not something we should be proud of. In New Zealand 2 out of every 3 adult…
