Telomerase Me for a Longer Life

March 4, 2016

It is known that the vast majority of premature deaths in the western world could be prevented.

The diseases that kill us (high blood pressure, heart attacks, cancer) are not pre-programmed into our genes. For most of the leading causes of death, our genes usually account for only 10–20% of risk.

The other 80-90% of risk relates to our diet and lifestyle. The typical Western diet is the number one cause of premature death and the number-one cause of disability. Another way of framing this statistic is that a long and healthy life is largely a matter of choice.

Polypharmacy – Too Much of a Bad Thing for Our Elderly!

February 12, 2016

On occasion oral ingestion is not as effective at increasing skin concentrations of vitamins and mineral as their absorption is limited by the active transport mechanisms in the gut.

The vitamins A, C, E, B3 and the mineral magnesium have all been shown to have considerable therapeutic effect when applied topically, especially in regards to acne and anti-ageing.

Stool Analysis – Providing a Spotlight on Gastrointestinal Health

December 1, 2015

While it may be uncomfortable for many of us to discuss, stool analysis has become a very important tool to determine a wide range of gastro intestinal conditions.

Stool Analysis provides an overview of the components of digestion, absorption, intestinal function and microbial flora as well as pathogenic bacteria, parasites and yeasts.

By indicating a poor digestive function and imbalanced gut flora a number of health conditions can be better understood and more tailored treatment protocols can be implemented.
