An easy way to improve your blood sugar management

Here’s a simple eating habit to exercise your ability to maintain blood sugar. Don’t eat for 12-14 hours every day. So if your last meal finishes at 9pm do not eat again until 9am. This stresses your adrenals to maintain your blood sugar level during your “fast”. You’ll find out how able you are to sustain this by your reaction: food hunger pangs? dizziness? irritability? sleep disturbance? If you need to start with smaller time periods then do so and build up slowly. The result is lower but better managed blood sugar levels and less output of unecessary...

CANCER ARTICLE — “A Pleomorphic Theory of Cancer” by Kevin Eakins

To be fair cancer is not the only disease that has emerged to prominence in these modern times. Heart disease, Diabetes, the auto-immune diseases, and Alzheimers are all far more prevalent than 150 years ago. However there is something special about cancer. It is the one we fear the most. The reason for this is ignorance. We do not properly understand what cancer is. Therefore we fear it all the more. We do not understand what causes cancer and so at the back of our minds there is always the fear: will it strike me? Am I at risk? What follows is a personal view. It’s also one that in its totality (as far as I am aware) you will not read elsewhere. I make no apologies for this. I have been reflecting on this disease for a long time and what follows is the distillation of various previous incarnations of my own understanding. Let’s start with a few statements that broadly define the nature of my theory Cancer is an organism separate from human tissue; it should be regarded and studied as a separate species. The process of dysplasia or cancer-like changes in the cellular function of human tissue is a natural process. It occurs all the time and probably did so since mammalian life began. Mitochondria have been considered as simply the furnace or fuel cell within the human cell but I believe that their role is much more than that and the vulnerability of mitochondria is a key factor in cancer cell formation. The governance of normal cellular function is not the exclusive domain of the...

ARTICLE – Superfood Suggestions for Vegetarians

The list given below (not necessarily in order of importance) would not be my own personal listing because it excludes meat (especially organ meats from grass fed, organic, free range animals) and fish which I believe are among the very best foods you can eat. Vegetables are essentially cleansing foods whereas animal foods are primarily building foods. A discerning combination of the two is the secret to an ideal diet. Almost no ancestral diet eaten by indigenous peoples and that sustains truly vibrant health is bereft of either food source. The challenge for vegetarians is that they need their diet to provide enough saturated fats, minerals, fat soluble vitamins (D, A, and K), vitamin B12, certain minerals such as iron and zinc, and cholesterol which are ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL for health. All of these nutrients are to be found abundantly in animal foods so excluding these sets anyone at a disadvantage from the start. In general I recommend the dietary guidelines of the Weston A Price Foundation (Google for web site) and where these do not clash with a vegetarian diet, I suggest that you follow these practises as much as possible. I do not hold much store by eating a lot of foods raw. The best foods to eat raw are those that make up the traditional salads (lettuce, tomatoes, beetroots, carrots, etc..). The worst foods to eat raw are pulses (beans etc..) and brassica vegetables (broccoli etc) since they are full of anti-nutrient phytates which steal essential minerals from being absorbed in the gastro-intestinal tract. For example the highly regarded food, spinach, contains a lot of phytate and although...
