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 . . .

What Happens When You Reduce Fats And Increase Carbs

We all know that weight gain is an increasingly disturbing problem in the western world. Have you ever wondered why this may be? If you were to read anything about diet prior to 1977, the dietary recommendation would be simple … eat three meals daily, period.  Eating between meals was considered either rude or glutinous.  Or it was a sign that the prior meal was inadequate.  It is only over the last 35 years or so, and predominantly in America, that eating between meals is socially tolerated.  And as far as we can ascertain, this experiment is having the expected result, we are getting bigger and lead the world in non-infectious gastrointestinal illness.

What happens when you eat simple carbohydrate foods at or between meals every day?  You get hungry in between!

What happens when you only eat low-fat foods, and only at meals three times per day?  You get hungry in between!

So where did the recommendations for eating 4-5 meals per day come from?   Read More

How CoQ10 Helps With Heart Health

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance that’ s found naturally in the body and it helps us convert food into energy. CoQ10 is found in almost every cell in the body, and it is a powerful antioxidant. Scientists believe free radicals contribute to the aging process, as well as a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer.

The heart is one of the most important body organs and has the most active tissues in the body (metabolically). On average, the heart pumps over 7570 litres of blood over 104,000 kilometres of blood vessels 100,000 times daily. The heart therefore needs adequate amounts of energy daily. Read More

How You Can Have Healthy Teeth & Gums Again!

As a member of the Savvy team I just wanted to share my story in case it can help someone else. While this isn’t a photo of me, wouldn’t you like a smile like this? A healthy mouth is a sign of a healthy body.

I read somewhere that bleeding and tender gums are one of the obvious signs of periodontal disease so I went to my dentist to see what he thought. My dentist said that if you don’t take care of the problem you could lose your teeth! So I would get my teeth cleaned every few months (and take my word for it, it’s very painful when they are inflamed) yet I continued to have problems with periodontal disease for over ten years. And the situation was only getting worse.

In fact, in my last visit my dentist said a recent issue of The Journal of Periodontology reported that at least 35% of adults have some form of gum disease, so I decided to look into the matter further. Periodontal (gum) diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious infections that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. If you want to read on, I can tell you both what the experts say and what else I found out, because I no longer have periodontal disease!
