90 Nutrients And Immunity

Build A Healthy Immune System

While the Harvard Health School states that there are no scientifically proven direct links between lifestyle and enhanced immune function, it thankfully (and not surprisingly) goes on to say that your first line of defense is to choose a healthy lifestyle. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward keeping your immune system strong and healthy.

It also goes on to say that to function well, your immune system requires a balance and harmony or all the macro and micro nutrients necessary for health. We hypothesise that there are over 90 of these nutrients necessary to enable your body to function as it should. There is still much that researchers don’t know about the intricacies and interconnectedness of the immune response, however on the whole, your immune system does a remarkable job of defending you against disease-causing microorganisms.

But sometimes it fails . . .

Sometimes a germ or some other substance invades your protective barriers successfully and makes you sick.

Is it possible to intervene in this process and make your immune system stronger?

8 Secrets To Goal Achievement

In their “Built To Last” book, co-authors Jim Collins and Jerry Porras coined a term that vividly conveys the excitement, energy, and envelope-pushing boldness stirred up by one’s daring, razor-edge endeavours. That term: BHAG!

7 Steps for Healthier Heart

7 Steps for a Healthier Heart!


One Australian dies every 12 minutes from it.

It’s the most costly disease for our healthcare system costing $1.8 Billion for medications alone in 2012. It’s the leading cause of death . . . and yet it’s largely preventable!

It’s Cardiovascular Disease!

Recently I was invited to speak to a group about the topic of ‘Heart Health’ and Cardiovascular Disease. It’s certainly a topic that I’ve had a keen interest in understanding, since I’ve had family members succumb to the effects of poor cardiovascular health.

Cardiovascular Disease is the leading cause of death in Australia, (plus most developed countries) and in addition it is a major cause of disability. According to the National Heart Foundation, CVD is responsible for 11% of direct healthcare expenditure with the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme paying out $1.8 Billion in medications for CVD in 2012 (21% of total benefits that year).

So it’s a very costly disease for the healthcare system and a deadly one at that.

So what can you actively do to stack the odds in your favour?

Well, here’s 7 Steps to get to started . . .

5 Simple Tips to Reduce 90 Percent of Disease: Cardiologist Speaks Out!

Dr Ross Walker Noted Australian Cardiologist says 90% of the major diseases seen in modern society are related to free radical attack on our body.

A free radical is the by-product of the reaction of many common chemicals and poisons with oxygen. This creates an unstable chemical that travels around the body, ripping out electrons and setting you up for many common diseases that afflict our modern society.

The ingestion of saturated fat, refined sugars, the use of cigarette smoke, exposure to pollution and the numerous day-to-day chemicals either in our foods or applied to our body in some form, not to mention cosmic radiation and other sources of radiation, are potent generators of free radicals.

The only methods available to us to reduce this free radical attack on our bodies are to markedly reduce our exposure to these chemicals and to load ourselves to the eyeballs with antioxidants.  In reducing our exposure to chemicals that generate free radicals, we should not only look at the obvious sources, such as the food we eat and the air we breath, but also the many products we take for granted when we apply them to our body. This includes soaps, deodorants, hair and skin products. We should always be striving to use the more natural products. The second way to neutralise free radicals, however, is the use of antioxidants.

Here’s 5 great sources of Antioxidants according to Dr Ross Walker . . .

Don’t wait for An Asthma Attack

Natural solutions may help avoid it …

Asthma prevalence in Australia is high by international standards: Asthma Australia reports “about 10% of the population (2 million people) have asthma currently”. It affects one in every ten adults on current statistics from the Australian Institute of Health & Welfare. That’s over 2 million people in Australia alone! Asthma also affects about one or two kids out of 10.

Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of complex and incompletely understood genetic and environmental factors, according to the WHO 2012 report. It’s an instigative (likely to arouse a strong reaction) disorder of the airways. Its diagnosis is usually based on the pattern of symptoms and response to therapy over time.

The occurrence of asthma has increased significantly since the 1970s, but if you have this condition, you don’t have to wait for an attack to do something about it. Here’s 3 important steps to get a grip on the problem . . .  (more…)

Connecting With Millennials

A decade ago, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in business who thought 20 and 30-year-olds were prime candidates as serious business partners. That has changed. Millennials, an era that starts with those reaching young adulthood around the year 2000 (actually those born anywhere from 1980 to 1999), have access to technology, communications, and publishing that simply wasn’t available decades ago.

They also have the capacity to utilise it in ever expanding and creative ways. As a result, they have much to offer in the new social media boom. Experian Marketing Services reveals latest demographic trends about these Millennials, who they call ‘the most diverse, informed and connected generation in the Western world.’ Here’s a complimentary copy of their report, Millennials come of age.  (more…)

Bones: Spurs, Osteoporosis, and Other Issues

4 Steps To Bone Health

Hippocrates is said to have taught “Let Food Be Thy Medicine And Medicine Be Thy Food.” and I must say I agree wholeheartedly with him, and I wish it were still true. If life were the same today as it was then – his claim would be just as true today.

Unfortunately, today’s soils, food raising methods, lifestyle and environmental degradation have had long term impacts on the planet and all that lives on it. This means that what Hippocrates said is no longer the case. In fact, it has not been the case for many, many decades. More than 6 million Australians of every age and each gender suffer from an ailment that affects the way that they move, rest and play, their independence and their state of mind.

The time for rectifying our body’s ills with simple foods is long gone … so here we bring you the 4 simple steps to bone health.  (more…)
