Recent research suggests that if we live to be 50-years-old, we will consume up to two tons of toxic material. These toxins can travel to vital organs such as the brain, heart, endocrine glands, as well as to all joints and tissues throughout the body, causing us pain and bodily dysfunction. The toxins enter our bodies via foods, liquid, medicine and the environment, although mercury can also enter our system via the fillings in our teeth. We can pick up lead from the air, soil, batteries, D.I.Y activities and lead-contaminated dust in older buildings. If you suffer from hypertension, headache, memory loss, mood disorders, weak mental functioning, abdominal pain, numbness or tingling in arms and legs, it could be down to the amount of lead in your environment. You will no doubt be shocked to learn you could even be in contact with arsenic, which is contained in most insecticides, herbicides and rodenticides. Furthermore, intensively farmed poultry may contain high levels of arsenic, because poultry feed contains antibiotics. Worst of all; because we are constantly in contact with these poisons, it is just about impossible to totally cleanse our systems. It is even possible that mothers to be could pass the toxins on to their unborn children via the placenta. Fortunately, there is something we can do to help protect our health. Complementary medicine uses nutraceuticals, such as magnesium, zinc, vitamin Bs, ascorbic acid, niacin and folate to promote the elimination of toxins from the body. Remember, if you are worried about the toxins that could lurk in your system, don’t try to treat yourself, you could do more harm than good. Rather, seek help from a Complementary Medicine Practitioner.

Research by the Institute of Health and Medical research in Paris has founds that diets with a net acid intake can increase type II Diabetes. The authors say that for the first time in a large prospective study it had been found that dietary acid load was positively associated with type II Diabetes risk. These results suggest, they say, that this may lead to the promotion of diets with a lower acid load for the prevention of diabetes - although they go on to say that further research is needed to discover exactly how acid might lead to Diabetes but disruptions to the metabolic some could lead to insulin resistance. For example Chronic Acidosis a condition caused by increased acidity in the blood and body tissues, reduces insulin sensitivity and the ability of the hormone insulin to regulate blood sugar. I have long been an advocate of a 15 day Alkaline only detox protocol so this breaking news, is very relevant to the benefits I have found with patients using this.

92 countries have signed the Minamata convention this October 2013, 50 years after the event that lends its name to this, the town of Minamata in Japan, where some of its citizens were poisoned severely by Mercury contaminated waste water linked to the fishing industry. Now, a United Nations Treaty has been signed to commemorate this which calls on countries the world over to learn from the devastating impact that this had, and continues to have, amongst the town’s residents and any world citizen affected by high levels of Mercury.
Of course many of us also have Mercury amalgams – a very common way of treating tooth decay, and the effects of high levels Mercury from these can be very debilitating.

The different climate and lifestyle in each country reflects on our diets and also determines on what our lifespan will be.

Recent research has shown that the average life span for men in the Mediterranean and Southern European Countries (Spain, Italy and Greece) is 81. Yet this is a higher life expectancy than the English average life span of 78.5 for men.

Well perhaps it's men in Britain have been more resistant to the healthy and nutritious Mediterranean diet. This diet consists of low in carbohydrates, high in vegetables, fish, whole grain, fresh fruit and nuts. It has low meat and alcohol content too.

The Mediterranean diet has fantastic health benefits such as protecting against diabetes as the high fibre slows down digestion and balances blood sugar levels, preventing heart disease and strokes.

By consuming this natural diet with a good exercise regime it can lengthen life span up to 15 years . This is because it’s low in saturated fat and high in fibre.

The Mediterranean climate has mostly hot summers and low rainfall and this results in more exercise for citizens as walking, cycling is used to get to work more than cars.  This increases the daily amount exercise resulting in healthier bodies.

The differences between a British and European diet is that UK diets consists of more caffeine and processed food. This is to manage the busier western life style and it seems the more convenient and money efficient but this has an awful impact on health and wellbeing.

There are many contributing factors to why the British diet is bad for you such as the cold and wetter climate. This results in UK indulging carbohydrates to keep us warmer and for our bodies to run longer.

Cheap and fast food might be affordable and more convenient to the life style in the UK, but unfortunately the added sugars, salt, additives and oil to most foods increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, strokes and cancers.

Of course I have a unique perspective on this, being born in London, but running my natural health clinic in the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Join me to discover more insights into health and wellbeing at

Pregnant women, who have been avoiding fish on the grounds that it might add to the amount of mercury in their blood, could have been a little too cautious according to research from the University of Bristol.
Whilst there seems little doubt that mercury can affect a baby’s developing brain and nervous system, there are questions relating to whether eating fish greatly increases the risk of mercury entering the body.

At present, concerns over mercury levels in fish have led the British National Health Service to advise pregnant women to eat no more than two portions of oily fish per week.

Yet, in a recent analysis of 4,500 women by the University of Bristol, fish accounted for only 7% of mercury in the body. In fact, there are many sources from which mercury can be absorbed, such as; refuse incineration, fungicides and pesticides. Some ‘healthy’ foods are also linked to slightly higher mercury blood levels, these include; fruit, sunflower oil, pure fruit juice, pulses and salads.

So, do pregnant women need to avoid fish? Professor Jean Golding who led the study thinks not; she has stated that she hopes more women will consider eating fish during pregnancy as this is advantageous for both the mother and the child.

Yet despite this, all of us are probably better to eat smaller fish, like sardines rather than bigger species. Mercury can also leech into our systems in many other ways too.

If you were asked to imagine an addict, you’d probably think of someone shooting up heroin in a squat or shop doorway. Whilst this is a popular stereotype, it is far from accurate. In fact, more people in Britain die from taking painkillers and tranquillisers than heroin or cocaine. The UK Office for National Statistics has reported that in 2012, 807 people died after taking tranquillisers and potent painkillers, whilst 718 died as the result of heroin and cocaine use. The reason for the growth in deaths related to prescription drugs, seems to be that whilst some are obtained illegally, some GPs may prescribe them too readily.
 
It appears people have been prescribed medication for years which are recommended for a maximum of only four weeks. The drug which seems to be causing most concern is a strong painkiller called Tramadol. Tramadol is an opiate (as are methadone and heroin). It stimulates the brain’s opioid receptors and it also increases the brain’s serotonin levels. Deaths involving the drug have more than doubled from 2007 to 2013. As a result, Tramadol is implicated in more deaths than cocaine. Due to the problems surrounding this medication, the UK government is considering reclassifying it as an illegal class C drug; a group which includes tranquillisers, Valium and anabolic steroids.

Coconuts have hit the headlines recently, with both Madonna and Rihanna extoling the virtues of coconut water. For once though, the stars are not leading fashion but following it, as sales of coconut oil and water have rocketed in the US and UK in recent years. 
The obvious question is why? Laura Jones, Global Food Science Analyst at Mintel said: “The profiles of coconut water and oil have been raised by the multitude of purported health benefits linked to their consumption”. 
It has been claimed these coconut products improve our health by strengthening the immune system, slowing signs of ageing in the skin and reducing abdominal fat. It has even been suggested that coconut oil can be beneficial to our brains. 
Kieran Clarke, professor of physiological biochemistry at Oxford University and head of the Cardiac Metabolism Research Group, seems to think so. He believes coconut oil might be able to boost the brain’s energy supply. 
And Professor Rudy Tanzi, director of the Genetics and Ageing Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, also argues that the effects of coconut oil is worth further investigation, but he warns; “The fats (found in coconut oil), can be potentially harmful to the heart, so it would be wise to regularly monitor cholesterol and triglyceride levels if you are taking it”.
All this is further grist for the mill for those interested in continually finding ways to improve their diet and health. If you are suffering with any form of Chronic Condition which has so far proved stubbornly resistant to treatment, why not contact me directly. I give Skype consultations to anyone anywhere in the world or you can visit me directly.  For more, please join me at...

When Thomas Hobbes' coined the phrase ‘nasty, brutish, and short’ he was not writing about medieval life - but he could have been. Even if you were rich you could expect your health to be continually challenged by infections, contagions, accidents and parasites. Piers Mitchell, a biological anthropologist at the University of Cambridge, has studied the remains of Richard III and noted that whilst many conditions do not leave signs on a skeleton, we can be sure Richard had scoliosis [curvature of the spine]. That was not Richard’s only medical problem; according to The Lancet the unfortunate Monarch was also infested with roundworm. The roundworm eggs would have entered his body due to poor hygiene in the royal kitchens. Richard would have been able to get medical help for his condition, he would have been prescribed a special diet and his blood would have been let – which would have had no effect whatsoever. If we move forward several hundred years to the Victorian era blood based therapy was still seen as a panacea.  At this point in history many people suffered from conditions which are thankfully unusual in Western countries today; one of the most dreaded of these was tuberculosis. The Victorians had no effective treatment for the condition and would try many different methods to cure the deadly disease, one of which was to drink fresh animal blood. Nevertheless, not all historical cures were ineffective, King Richard and the Victorians would have used leeches for medical reasons - just as we do today.

The Times (London) reported this week (August 6th) that a commonly used Chinese Remedy, which has been given for thousands of years to patients by practitioners, known as Birthwort, can actually have some very serious side effects not least causing cancer. Although banned in the USA and Europe in the 1990’s due to concerns about its safety, can still be purchased online.

Researchers from the John Hopkins University in Maryland USA found that the active agent contained in birthwort, aristolochic acid had in fact been the cause of cancer in the upper urinary tract of patients in Taiwan who had previously been treated with extract from the plant.

Leader of the study Professor Kenneth Kinzler said that new technology had given them the ability to show that a specific toxin had been the cause of a specific cancer.

All this should make us all aware of the purity or lack of purity of the food, additives and toxins contained in everyday cleaning agents and many other sources that we encounter. Mercedes have recently been tangling with the French Government because of toxins said to be in the components of a new car. All this shows that we are exposed to more and more things which are not good for us. One solution is to go on a course of Heavy Metal Detox. This is an incredibly safe and natural way of eliminating toxins and metals from our bodies.
