Who Done It? – the gluten or the yeast

I think most of us are well educated in the whole realm of eating gluten free and the possible health concerns about the over consumption of gluten containing products. I still get a kick out of the “gluten free” symbol (G) in restaurants and reading the labels on “gluten free” margarine – thank heavens! It ...

Yeast is used in food preparation and is a good source of B vitamins but these can also be obtained from other foods such as meat, fish, whole grains, nuts and dark green leafy vegetables. Live yeast is also used in the preparation of many alcoholic drinks which should therefore be avoided and substituted with ...

Understanding disease

…and how to maximise your healing potential in conditions like Cancer, Lyme and Autism. Recovery and healing can only be accomplished once we understand what disease is and that it is far more than absence of health.

What is depression and what is not?

As Paul Keating said in the remarkable interview with Kerry O’Brien in 2013: There is a place for sadness and melancholy. His father died suddenly at the age of 60. He’d walked down the street to put a bet on the races and “he died sitting on the side of the road”. Keating was washing ...
