Healing Fibroids Naturally

Fibroids in the uterus, and cysts on the ovaries are benign (not cancerous) growths, which can cause no symptoms, mild or severe symptoms of pain, bloating and/or bleeding. Christine Northrup MD says “The good news is most fibroids don’t cause symptoms, don’t require any fancy treatment, and almost never require a hysterectomy, despite what you may have heard.”

Both uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts affect 75% of women. They’re present in 25-40 percent of women in their childbearing years, and about 40 percent of women have one or more fibroids when they reach menopause. According to Dr Ramsey  the cause of both fibroids and ovarian cysts are similar – either or both oestrogen dominance and liver overload. Read More

Health & Weight Benefits of Essential Fatty Acids

We all have a problem with fat. Actually, most of us have two problems with fat. I’m sure you are familiar with the first problem – that our bodies overproduce fat. Statistically speaking, most Australians just need to look down at their waistline to see how big the problem is for them – Australia now leads the world in obesity.

So the first problem is that we tend to put on weight. To help our friends and family take simple steps to reduce the size of their waistline over the course of 2012, the Savvy team have a “One Ton Challenge” (so  make sure you find out more about that).

But the second problem, and you probably don’t realize it, is that you aren’t getting enough “good fat” in your diet. This is often a contributing factor to the first. Is ‘Stay away from fats!’ ringing in your ears? This used to be the ‘classic’ saying that you’ve heard from weight loss ‘experts’ over the years. You’ve probably lost out on the health and weight loss benefits of many ‘good fats’ because you’ve believed in the misconceptions surrounding this topic.

Are you thinking – there really is no such thing as good fat? Well there really is. Read More
