I once had terrible back pains that would keep me up at nights even to the point of tears and no relief was in sight! My GP told me that it was perhaps because I spent such long hours sitting at work and I was to just pick up some OTC medication for inflammation (such as Robax or Voltaren etc) . I did that but got little relief from it and of course the pains returned once the tablets wore off.

So finally I went to a Naturopath and the very first thing he asked me to do was to stick out my tongue! Immediately as he looked at it he told me that I seem to have some blockage in my blood flow which could cause my organs (such as my lungs, my liver and kidneys) to function at a less than normal capacity as they were not getting enough oxygen! Go figure! He was able to tell me that just by taking one look at my tongue! Said tongue was a deep purplish dark blue by the way…and when he showed me his it was a nice healthy looking pink!

He asked me if I loved to eat a lot of sweets … and of course I do have a very wicked sweet tooth! How on earth did he know that just by looking at my tongue? Well as it goes, if you eat too much sweets then your blood can get too thick and sluggish and your body does not get the right levels of blood flow! Anyhow he proceed to hook me up to this Biofeedback machine (which does a scan of your body similar to what an antivirus software does for your computer) and lo and behold it pinpointed that my lungs and kidneys (located exactly where I had the pains) were suffering from less than required oxygen levels and were functioning at like a 50 and 40 percent levels!

I therefore decided to do some research on the tongue and it turns out that your tongue is somewhat like a road map to your health because every area of your tongue is actually linked to one of your organs and your digestive system! Here is a shortened view of what I have learnt (check out the links below which will give you a lot more details):

Back of tongue: Kidneys, bladder and intestines
Middle of tongue: Stomach & Spleen
Side of tongue: Kidneys and Gall Bladder
Front of tongue: Heart, Lungs & cardio-vascular area

Other things also tell your health story such as the colour of your tongue, whether it has cracks in it, whether it has a coating over it or has spots on it all tell different stories about your health which you do need to take note of. Read Emma Deangela’ article  to get more details (link at the end of this blog), which is the most comprehensive one I found on the topic - but here is a quick and sketchy summary:

Pink: Healthy
Red: Body overheating (lack B Vitamins)
Purple: Poor blood flow and circulation
White: Cold body temperature and possible metabolic issues

Thin white: Normal & Healthy
No Coating: Problems with digestive system
Thick coating: Water retention and poor absorption of body fluids
Thick White Coating: Poor Circulation and low energy levels
Thick Yellow Coating: Toxins and problems with the organs to remove toxins from your body

No cracks: Healthy
Many cracks: Possibly Diabetes
Fish Gill Cracks: Fluid retention & dysfunctional spleen

Be blessed & stay healthy!

Tis this the season of rampant flu's and both viral and bacterial infections (especially those caused by over indulgences in the recent holiday seasonal culinary delights!) I therefore thought it best to start the year focusing on how to naturally heal yourself from these ailments simply by what we eat. It was Hippocrates (the father of Modern Medicine) that said “Let your food be your medicine and let your medicine be your food!”

Due to the overuse of antibiotics (including the high levels of antibiotics in meat production), superbugs have been developed in humans which are more resistant than ever. They are evolving at a rate that scientists are simply unable to keep up with for synthetic antibiotics! The last report about 3 years ago indicated that 2 million American adults and children become infected each year with antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and at least 23,000 of them die as a result of these infections. In the meanwhile, many others die from other complications from an antibiotic-resistant infection!

Let’s therefore look at 7 of the most natural antibiotics that you can find right in your kitchen and use every day to guard your bodies against infections and to heal your system:

1. Garlic: This is one of the best natural antibiotic that you will ever find. Notwithstanding the very pungent smell of garlic it is one of the most flavourful or herbs! I love to use an entire head of garlic when cooking my meats. High heat however will destroy the active ingredient that allows it to heal so Its best consumed raw to be effective as an antibiotic. Chop, slice, crush or mince the garlic and let it sit for about 20 mins to activate the Allium Sativum ingredient which is effective at preventing and curing common colds among many other ailments. Add it to some honey (which is next on my list) and it becomes more palatable.

2.  Raw Honey:  Is also considered one of the best natural antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and antiseptics known to mankind. There are many types of honey however the Manuka Honey from New Zealand is known to have the highest levels of antioxidants and curative properties. An enzyme known as methylglyoxal actually releases hydrogen peroxide. This helps the body to fight infection and prevent the growth of bacteria. Honey also removes toxins from the blood and helps with the functioning of the liver. Raw organic honey is the best as honey that is pasteurized might have a reduced antioxidant effect. Add this to some Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (next on my list) as a daily natural supplement to remove toxins from your body.

3. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV): This helps to naturally alkalize your system (reduces the acidic levels so your body is in a better position to heal itself) and it has natural antibiotic and antiseptic properties. Raw ACV also helps with many other issues such as reducing Cholesterol levels and helps to lower blood sugar levels as well as helping to remove toxins from the body and reduce the risk of cancers. It can also be used topically as an astringent to sterilize and disinfect wounds.
 Image result for coconut oil
4. Coconut Oil (virgin): Growing up in the West Indies in the 80’s we were told that Coconut oil was bad for your health while people from the Philippines call the coconut tree “the tree of life”! Now whether that was a high level of conspiracy in order to push corn and other vegetable oils or whether they were just not enlightened as present I will let you be the judge of that, however Coconut has been found to have naturally occurring anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties and is packed with more antioxidants than one can find anywhere else in nature! It is also the oil that can best withstand very high heat without becoming toxic. I use it to cook every day and I absolutely love the flavor it gives to my dishes. Coconut oil can be used to boost the immune system, balance your blood sugar and cholesterol levels as well as your thyroid but even more impactful is the effect it has on the brain! Studies have now shown that it can even reverse the Alzheimer’s disease! Coconut is certainly one of the best gifts from Mother Nature!
 Image result for cabbage
5. Cabbage: Researchers have now identified over 20 different flavonoids and 15 different phenols in cabbage all of them demonstrating antioxidant properties! One cup of cabbage provides 75% of your vitamin C requirements for the day! Several studies have now also linked it with anti-cancer fighters. Shred some in you salad today!
 Image result for turmeric
6. Tumeric: This is the bright yellow spice that gives curries their rich colour and smoky flavor but it also has amazing healing properties! It is the compound called Circumin that is found in turmeric that has all these antibiotic effects by killing viruses and bacteria. Studies have even shown turmeric to be effective against the E-Coli bacteria which causes food poisoning. It acts as an antibacterial agent and can also be applied directly to the skin. A paste can be made of turmeric and Manduka Honey and applied directly to a skin infection.
Echinacea Tea
7. Echinacea: This is an amazing flowering herb which Native Indians in North America have been using for over 400 years to provide healing. It has antibacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties and as such has many uses. It is best available as an OTC Supplement however and can be taken in tea form or as a liquid or capsule supplement.

With all these items hiding in your kitchen cupboard why take synthetic antibiotics when they might not even work? Beats me!

Be blessed and Stay Healthy~

-      - How Toxic Is It?

With the recent breaking news from the WHO that processed meats contain known carcinogens ranking as high on the list as cigarettes, I was immediately drawn out of my long revere and decided to put back on my blogging hat! This, because I had previously done a blog on the issue from as far back as April 2011 however now that the WHO has confirmed it perhaps persons might be more compelled to take notice!

That being said I decided I would start a series on some little known highly toxic substances which we consume pretty much every day without recognizing the impact these are having on our health! The one which tops my list would be Fluoride – mainly because almost everyone consumes it every single day both in their drinking water and in their toothpastes.

Image result for fluoride
Now you might say “well if I am consuming it every day and it is not affecting me then I’m good” but think again! Let’s start with some introductory fact based statements from the Fluoride Action Network (FAN):

Fluoride is a highly toxic substance. Consider, for example, the poison warning that the FDA now requires on all fluoride toothpastes sold in the U.S. or the tens of millions of people throughout China and India who now suffer serious crippling bone diseases from drinking water with elevated levels of fluoride.

In terms of acute toxicity (i.e., the dose that can cause immediate toxic consequences), fluoride is more toxic than lead, but slightly less toxic than arsenic. This is why fluoride has long been used in rodenticides and pesticides to kill pests like rats and insects. It is also why accidents involving over-ingestion of fluoridated dental products–including fluoride gels, fluoride supplements, and fluoridated water–can cause serious poisoning incidents, including death.

The debate today, however, is not about fluoride’s acute toxicity, but its chronic toxicity (i.e., the dose of fluoride that if regularly consumed over an extended period of time can cause adverse effects).

What is the impact of Fluoride on our health?

According to Dr Mercola (

Fluoride affects many tissues in your body besides your teeth!

Many assume that consuming fluoride is only an issue that involves your dental health. But according to a 500-page scientific review, fluoride is an endocrine disruptor that can affect your bones, brain, thyroid gland, pineal gland and even your blood sugar levels.2

There have been over 34 human studies and 100 animal studies linking fluoride to brain damage,3 including lower IQ in children, and studies have shown that fluoride toxicity can lead to a wide variety of health problems, including:

-       Thyroid Disease
-       Arthritis
-       Dementia
-       Bone Fractures
-       Bone Cancer
-       Increased Tumor and Cancer rate
-       Disrupted Immune System
-       Damaged Sperm and increased Infertility
-       Genetic Damage and Cell Death

There are also many other documented researches which conclude that fluoride impacts the neurological development in children. According to Choi – 2012 Study (HSPH – Harvard School of Public Health):

July 25, 2012 — For years health experts have been unable to agree on whether fluoride in the drinking water may be toxic to the developing human brain. Extremely high levels of fluoride are known to cause neurotoxicity in adults, and negative impacts on memory and learning have been reported in rodent studies, but little is known about the substance’s impact on children’s neurodevelopment. In a meta-analysis, researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang for the first time combined 27 studies and found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children. Based on the findings, the authors say that this risk should not be ignored, and that more research on fluoride’s impact on the developing brain is warranted.

The study was published online in Environmental Health Perspectives on July 20, 2012.

The researchers conducted a systematic review of studies, almost all of which are from China where risks from fluoride are well-established. Fluoride is a naturally occurring substance in groundwater, and exposures to the chemical are increased in some parts of China. Virtually no human studies in this field have been conducted in the U.S., said lead author Anna Choi, research scientist in the Department of Environmental Health at HSPH.

Fluoride is a poison and does not belong in our drinking water. According to Jill in her article posted on on July 13, 2013:

Fluoride is xenobiotic — it is a poison — not a nutrient. According to Dr. Kennedy (a speaker at the Healthy Mouth Summit), fluoride is harmful to the microbes that live on teeth and it damages the way the body makes energy, teeth, bone and blood. It increases mineral content but lowers the tinsel strength of bone and gets into the marrow and lowers the blood cell count — wrecking havoc with blood cell production and the strength of the bones and teeth.

He’s not just saying that — a 2000 review of the literature by the British Government (University of York) found that there has not been a single properly conducted, high quality study to demonstrate that water fluoridation has benefits — in spite of over 50 years of water fluoridation.

It cannot be coincidental that European countries do not fluoridate their water! If it was really that good for you then I am sure they would be doing it. Why therefore do so many North American cities in the USA and Canada insist on putting this toxic substance in their water and why does so many Dentists continue to insist on their patients using Fluoride Toothpaste and Fluoride Treatments for kids? Your guess is as good as mine! Check out what Dr Mercola had to say:

If fluoride is really the panacea for dental disease that it’s been portrayed as, then why is it that the United States is one of the only developed countries that fluoridates their citizens’ drinking water?

Hint: It’s not because the other countries aren’t aware of fluoride’s supposed “miracle” powers for your teeth … it’s because they fully realize that adding a known poison to your population’s water supply is probably not a good idea.

Even in North America, water fluoridation has come under increasing scrutiny; since 2010, more than 75 US and Canadian communities have voted to end water fluoridation, and the issue is heating up as more and more people begin to demand water that does not expose them to this highly toxic industrial waste product.

Fluoride also causes Calcification of the Pineal Gland

The Pineal Gland (which is about the size of a rice grain) is an extremely vital connection of the body to the mind/soul. It is even sometimes referred to as the Third Eye or the Mind’s Eye. It is also responsible for the production of melatonin from tryptophan. Melatonin helps to regulate circadian rhythm and plays a role in the timing of puberty. Deficiency in melatonin is linked to premature sexual development, insomnia, cancer, Alzheimer’s and mental disorders such as bipolar.

Fluoride is said to be one of the main causes of the rampant calcification of the Pineal Gland. A blocked pineal gland is associated with several disorders and enzyme inhibitors including obesity, thyroid malfunctions, digestive disorders, kidney malfunctions, lowered IQ and many others.

What can you do to avoid the above?

-        - Get a good reverse osmosis system that eliminates these substances from the water;
-        - Start using a fluoride free toothpaste (you may purchase these from health stores);
-        - Practice eating organic foods where possible and 
    -Take supplements and eat foods which will assist your body to expel toxins.

Be blessed and stay healthy!

- The ‘King of Herbs’

Just recently I was introduced to the most amazing coffee I have ever had, which did not give me the jitters or caused any heart palpitations and most significantly it did not cause me to have a sleep deprived night even though I had it after 11pm! I have loved coffee from I was a child, however I have stayed away from it for years because of all the side effects I just mentioned, as some years ago when I was preparing for my designation exams and needed to stay up late at nights, I had a particularly strong brand (which will remain nameless here) and since then I have had all those reactions. So after experiencing this curious well tasting coffee, I sought to find out what made it so special and found out that it was infused with this incredible herb known as Ganoderma lucidum mainly found in Eastern Asia. I therefore decided to do some research on it myself to see if everything they were touting about his herb was true. Well whaduyahknow … I have discovered some awesome health benefits packed in this hardly known herb in the Western World! So as usual, in my quest to bring you information on little known natural health supplements I am sharing this information with you.

So what is Ganoderma Lucidum?
ganoderma.jpg Ganoderma lucidum is a potent immune system regulator, promising anti-cancer agent, and stress reducer, frequently used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is found in the bitter, hard Reishi Mushroom, which grows wild on trees and logs. According to (who does research on supplements and serves as a reference guide):
Ganoderma lucidum has anti-oxidative effects when supplemented. It also has a therapeutic effect on insulin resistance, reduces the risk of prostate cancer, and can help treat a variety of conditions associated with metabolic syndrome.
The lingzi mushroom is well known for its anti-cancer effects. It is able to activate natural killer cells, increasing their activity and the body’s ability to fight tumors. Supplementing Ganoderma lucidum reduces the chances of metastasis, which is when cancer spreads to another part of the body.
Ganoderma lucidum has a variety of mechanisms, but they are focused on moderating the immune system. The lingzi mushroom is able to reduce immune system activity when the system is overstimulated, and bolster the immune system when it is weakened. In general, Ganoderma lucidum increases the amount of active immune system cells.

According to Web MD (, these are the health benefits of Ganoderma Lucidum:

Ø       Herpes-related pain. Some people report that hot water extracts of reishi mushroom decreases pain when conventional treatment doesn’t work.
Ø       Boosting the immune system.
Ø       High blood pressure.
Ø       High cholesterol.
Ø       Viral infections.
Ø       Tumors.
Ø       Prostate cancer.
Ø       Heart disease.
Ø       Asthma and bronchitis.
Ø       Stress.
Ø       Kidney disorders.
Ø       Liver disease.
Ø       HIV disease.
Ø       Altitude sickness.
Ø       Fatigue.
Ø       Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
Ø       Trouble sleeping (insomnia).
Ø       Stomach ulcers.
Ø       Poisoning.
Ø       Shingles.

Ganoderma though is not without its side effects: because of its potency in boosting the immune system, people suffering from Lupus and any other autoimmune disease which causes the body’s immune system to attack itself should not consume Ganoderma Lucidum. It also causes thinning of the blood (which is why it is so good with fighting heart diseases) and it can lower the blood pressure too much if it is taken while on medication for High Blood Pressure (so if you are on meds for hypertension or high cholesterol then perhaps you could cease taking them a bit and try Ganoderma lucidum for a while and you might find you do not need the meds again!). It has been found however that the benefits of Ganoderma lucidum greatly outweighs the cons.
Having discovered all of the above I have therefore decided to keep Organo Gold’s organic coffee and teas as a permanent fixture in my tea cupboard! What do you have in yours?
Be blessed and stay healthy!

- The most nutritious food source in the world!


What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a type of algae specifically a water plant that has been considered as a rich source of food. For a long time now, spirulina has been used as a dietary supplement. One of the Spirulina Benefits is that it is an excellent source of vegetable protein. The level of protein that spirulina contains is said to be higher than the ones found in beef and fish. It also provides a lot of multivitamins such as Vitamin B12 as well as minerals such as Sodium, Potassium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus.

Spirulina supplement is actually one of the richest and most complete food source present in the world. It has over a 100 types of nutrients, more than any other type of grain, plant, or herb.

Spirulina is a great product that people can use to improve their overall health. Spirulina can help people prevent some serious health problems, such as allergies, diabetes, oral cancer, and obesity. Many doctors recommend the it and there is no side effect that can be caused by the consumption of Spirulina.

Spirulina contains many essential nutrients for human body. These nutrients are required by our body to grow properly. It has some important nutrients, such as B complex vitamins, vitamin E, and also beta-carotene. These vitamins are good for improving our overall health. This product also contains high amount of protein. Therefore, it is considered as one of the best protein sources for many people. It also contains some other nutrients, such as minerals, cholorphyll, and also antioxidants. These active ingredients are good to improve the overall human health.

The supplement actually contains about 60% of protein, 12-13% of vital minerals such as Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Iron, Zinc, and Phosphorous as well as a complete group of vitamin B. It’s also rich in several anti-oxidants, which protect body cells. In fact it is the only source of the antioxidant phycocyanin.

Spirulina is green in nature, and hence it contains a significant amount of phycocyanin and chlorophyll, the latter absorbs energy from the sun to manufacture carbohydrates which boosts your energy.

Some people due to various inevitable medical issues have been forced to become vegetarians, lack of animal meat in their body several amino acids unavailable for the normal metabolic processes of the body. To counter this, these individuals can take spirulina to fill these gaps as it is very rich in them.

Though spirulina can not instantly reduce ones weight, it comprises the necessary nutrients for our bodies that are quickly assimilated. It also contains a compound known as gamma linolenic acid; it is present in human breast milk and helps to enhance healthy baby development. Spirulina can also benefit individuals who suffer from both malnutrition and poor nutrition due to its high level of nutrients as well as ease of assimilation properties and helps our systems to absorb nutrients from the foods we take.

The Spirulina Benefits

Nature is considered as the basic source of every human need. While there are already beneficial microorganisms living inside a human’s body, there are still lots of microorganisms need by humans that can be found in nature.

Some of these microorganisms have already been used back then because of the benefits that these microorganisms contains. Spirulina is one of the microorganisms that hold very essential substances that are beneficial to human’s health. That is why various supplements have already been formulated out of it.

Spirulin benefits also contain beta-carotene that helps in protecting the cells and gamma-Linolein acid. Gamma-Linolein acid is considered to be beneficial because of its ability to reduce cholesterol and prevent any heart ailments.

Spirulina is a powerful antioxidant and due to that, many people are able to lose weight easily. One of the most vital spirulina benefits, which were proven by research, is that it can aid in fighting cancer and any viral illnesses. It is also proven to enhance a person’s immune system. It was also proven that spirulina helps in increasing the libido level of individuals.

As mentioned, spirulina benefits are not a new knowledge from the human race anymore because as it was said, spirulina supplements have already been long used even before. Due to that, individuals already know its capability and what it can offer to them.

Aside from the mentioned spirulina benefits, this supplement is also proven to protect the person against various kinds of infections such as AIDS and influenza. It also contains lots of amino acids, which is considered to be one of the most helpful substances that can help in preventing different kinds of heart diseases.

By taking spirulina, you will be assured that you will get a total health benefit because it does not only help in preventing heart diseases but also prevent depression and diabetes.
