Women’s urogenital tracts abound with bacteria – when we have a dominance of ‘good’ bacteria, the vagina is healthy, but when ‘bad’ bacteria dominates, we can run into problems like bacterial vaginosis (BV) and candida infection (thrush).
While taking an oral probiotic, which may have additional benefits, can be the perfect tool for maintenance of vaginal health, a pessary may provide a fast-acting boost in good bacteria in times of imbalance.

When penicillin and other antimicrobials became widely available after World War II, it was not long before their pathogenic targets began developing resistance to the drugs that were meant to quash them.
Drugs such as streptomycin, chloramphenicol, tetracycline and sulfonamide have lost much of their original potency, leaving us in a battle against the rise of the multi-drug- resistant “superbugs”.
Supplements which support normal gut immune function reduce pathogenic invasion without the problem of resistance, and can safely be used alongside antimicrobial therapy, or as stand-alone treatment where drug therapy fails or compromises your health.

It seems to be little more than a modern day catch phrase but methylation is a vitally important process that happens inside each of us. Whether this pathway is working optimally or is under or over performing can dramatically impact our health and the possible development of an alarming amount of diseases.
Methylation is responsible for many of the most complex and vital processes in the body. The methylation pathways can be found to occur in each cell as well as the liver and the fluid supplying the brain, impacting every system in the body.
Methylation helps determine who we are, what we look like, and how we behave yet even more importantly, it is central to our physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing. Without methylation, we could not survive.

Love a bit of spice in your life?
A recent study confirms that eating spicy food particularly fresh chilli, regularly positively influences our long term health and wellbeing.
Published on the 4th August 2015 in the British Medical Journal, the study looked at 199,293 Chinese men and 288,082 Chinese women aged 30 to 79 years in 10 different geographical areas.
Addressing disease states involving the cardiovascular system, metabolic system and gastrointestinal system, near daily intake of fresh chilli was shown to reduce both morbidity and mortality by 14%.

Finally recognised as a public health issue, antibiotic resistance means infection- causing bacteria has become resistant to antibiotic medications.
All too often antibiotics are being prescribed and taken inappropriately and unnecessarily. Antibiotics have no effect in treating viruses, fungal infection or other illnesses that are not related to bacterial infection.
Australians are among the biggest offenders of anti-biotic over prescription, abuse and misuse and now resulting ‘Superbugs’ are becoming a global concern.
