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

Questions & Answers On Essential Fats

9 ‘FAQs’ on Essential Fatty Acids & their Benefits!

Basically, there are two essential fatty acids, Omega-6 and Omega-3. These two fats are termed “essential” because they cannot be produced by the body, and must therefore be obtained from the diet or from a supplemental source if you want to stay healthy.

Unlike other non-essential fats, the body uses essential fatty acids to maintain proper growth, cell formation and optimising functional needs, rather than for fuel. This means they do not get stored as fat in your fat cells.

Once we get into nutrient deficiency, it does not take long for the body to protest, reminding us to slow down, get more rest, eat right and supplement. In order to remain robust, energetic and healthy, we need a variety of nutrients. These include amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, lipids and fatty acids. Essential fatty acids work best in the presence of ample amounts of vitamins A, B3, B6, C and E and the minerals magnesium and zinc.

Many assert that a perfect balance of nutrients can be achieved by following a diet in which protein, carbohydrate and fat are maintained in certain strict proportions. The Western Price Foundation in ‘Tripping Lightly Down the Prostaglandin Pathways’ says this is a highly simplistic view of the complex interactions of the body, one which does not take into account individual requirements for macro and micro nutrients, nor of imbalances that may be caused by nutritional deficiencies, environmental stress or genetic defects.

Because our modern lifestyle leaves almost everyone with some sort of nutrient deficiency everyone could benefit with and increase of healthy fats. What we do know, is that they are “essential”.

Here are nine frequently asked questions on essential fatty acids … and the answers.
