THE COMMON ROOTS OF MODERN HEALTH ISSUES

Click on the ones affecting you to find out more...

 Our descent from able bodied explorers, settlers, pioneers and warriors 
 to those riddled with chronic disease has taken just 3 generations.

WRONG DIET

A Low Fat/High Carb grain based diet

promotes insulin resistance which has been shown to be one of the root causes leading to the development of many inflammatory conditions. These include high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, kidney disease, fatty liver disease and hormone imbalance. 

Changing diet makes all the difference!

DEFICIENCIES

The most common deficiencies that develop

from our modern grain based diets are Vitamins A, D, B6, B12, K, Zinc, Magnesium, Iodine, Selenium, Sulphur and Iron.

This is due mostly to a lack of quality animal products, soil nutrient depletion from unsustainable monoculture farming and poor digestive function.

Digestive disorders usually do not develop on their own without a common root cause. Low stomach acid, has been shown to be a problem for up to 60% of the population. Low stomach acid levels affect pancreatic enzymes, liver function, bile secretion and gallbladder function, nutrient absorption, intestinal pH, permeability and the right balance of the probiotic populations. 

POOR DIGESTION

>>

 We are the first generation in 200 years to have shorter life expectancy than our parents. 
 When a population's health declines this fast, it cannot simply be blamed on "genetics", 
 but diet and environmental factors need to be explored.  

Lazy Morning_edited.jpg

Studies have shown that the minimum amount of sleep needed on a regular basis in order to maintain health for most people is approx. 7-9 hours per night. Anything less than this raise stress levels and inflammation as well as increased hunger, weight gain and neurological dysfunction. It also results in less melatonin secretion which helps the immune system and protects against cancer. 

POOR SLEEP

>>

Stressed Man_edited.jpg

Stress raises cortisol and adrenalin levels which in turn decrease immune function and digestion. Stress raises blood sugar levels which can lead to inflammation and insulin resistance. It also causes other serious hormonal and neurological chemical changes which are detrimental longterm. 

Learning to reduce and manage stress is a vital part of any health program. 

STRESS

Viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic infections are common  and often lead to serious health problems. When not dealt with quickly and effectively,  chronic inflammation and a dysfunctional immune response can also lead to auto-immunity, and the development of secondary health problems like cancer. Unfortunately many conventional treatments exacerbate existing other health problems and can cause unwanted side effects. 

INFECTIONS

 YOU CAN CHANGE THE OUTCOMES FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN BY MAKING CHANGES NOW! 
 Reverse the tide of chronic disease by dealing with the roots of your modern health problems.  

Smoking Cigarette

Smoking causes widespread inflammation due to the toxic chemicals inhaled. Smoking-related constriction and damage to arteries is a major contributor of heart disease and stroke. Smoking is also a huge risk factor for respiratory diseases, cancer, and poor immune function. Approximately 70 of the chemicals in cigarrettes are known to cause cancer. Why sabotage your health? 

SMOKING

Pouring Beer_edited.jpg

The danger with alcohol lies in the way it affects overall liver function, raises insulin levels and damages DNA. Contrary to popular belief, regular alcohol consumption puts you at increased risk for cancer, obesity, diabetes, depression and liver disease. Recent studies have shown that each drink raises your risks and there are no regular "safe" limits. It can be a pleasurable enjoyment when kept only for special occasions. Thats what makes them special. 

ALCOHOL

We currently live in a very toxic world.

Unfortunately, many things we are exposed to on a daily basis interfere with our health including exposure to plastics, chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides, and other pollutants. 

These all can have negative effects on our hormones, neurological function, reproductive system, immune system and nervous systems.
