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.

Having Enough Energy

Getting enough quality sleep is probably the number one way you can boost your energy levels, combined with healthy nutritious food and regular exercise.

If you find you need your morning caffeine fix before you can get going, then chances are you’re not getting enough quality sleep. Of course there may be underlying physiological causes for lowered energy levels too. Low levels of iron and vitamin B12 reduce the efficiency with which oxygen is transported in your blood to your cells for energy. Early signs of this can present as feelings of lethargy, pale skin, weakness and shortness of breath. If you experience these symptoms, then perhaps a chat with your healthcare professional who can point you in the right direction.

Caffeine is a stimulant, along with guarana and s…

Intermittent Fasting - What is it and is it for you?

Fasting for health? No way – isn’t that unsafe and damaging to your metabolism and weight loss?

Well actually, no. Recent research has found that there are many benefits to reducing our calorie intake from managing our weight, achieving fat loss, balancing our blood sugar levels, improving insulin sensitivity, stabilising energy, maintaining heart health, gaining mental clarity, inducing cellular repair mechanisms and perhaps even increasing longevity. The theory being that when we reduce our eating the body has more time to focus on clearing toxins and repairing and rebuilding tissues, rather than the energy demanding task of continually digesting food.

Different types of fasting have bee…

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…

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.

Stem Cells and Colostrum – The Latest Research

They are an important part of the immune system, supplying the body with a source for regenerating new cells to re-build old, worn out and damaged tissues.

Adult stem cells are gaining more popularity in the medical world as a means to improve the body’s innate healing capacity, and with good reason.
Stem cells are original cells, the cells that all other cells come from (or stem from). They are unspecialised cells which means that they can turn into many different cell types in the body. Because stem cells can potentially divide without limit to replenish other cells they can repair and regenerate damaged and diseased tissues which helps reduce the effects of ageing.

Adult stem cells are made in the bone marrow …

Why you should choose a Ketogenic Diet

With so many diets and weight loss programmes on offer, how do you know which one to choose?

A ketogenic diet switches the body from burning glucose to burning fat, ensuring muscle mass and metabolic rate are maintained.

Obviously there are personal preferences to take into consideration, for example, some people are happy to live on one meal a day with two liquid ‘shakes’ making up their other meals. Other people like to actually eat food at each meal. Then there are nutritional and health considerations, for example, some diets have extremely low calories or are based on eating one single food, like the Grapefruit Diet which are not nutritionally sound and may even be detrimental for people with fragile health.

Nutritional support for happy, balanced children

Food additives such as artificial preservatives, colours, flavours and sweeteners have been found to affect children’s wellbeing.

Childhood is a happy, carefree time but not all children are full of joy – some suffer from changeable moods, spells of high and low energy and are easily distracted.
This picture – a challenge to parents – can affect children of any age but commonly takes hold at around 3 years of age. Boys are more frequently affected than girls.

Here are some steps you can take towards your child’s happiness:

A healthy diet

Make sure your child is eating plenty of fresh frui…

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…
