HANDWASHING WITH SOAP IS BEST

Posted on: November 2nd, 2011

The largest, most comprehensive study ever done comparing the effectiveness of hand hygiene products shows that nothing works better in getting rid of disease-causing viruses than simply washing one's hands with good old-fashioned soap and water. Among the viruses soapy hand washing flushes down the drain is the one that causes the common cold. Other removable viruses cause hepatitis A, acute gastroenteritis and a host of other illnesses. A separate key finding was that waterless handwipes only removed roughly 50 percent of bacteria from volunteer subjects' hands. Anti-microbial agents...

Common Painkillers Linked to Risk

Posted on: February 9th, 2011

ScienceDaily (Jan. 12, 2011) — The drugs include traditional non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) as well as new generation anti-inflammatory drugs, known as COX-2 inhibitors. The researchers say that doctors and patients need to be aware that prescription of any anti-inflammatory drug needs to take cardiovascular risk into account. NSAIDs have been the cornerstone of managing pain in patients with osteoarthritis and other painful conditions. In 2004, the COX-2 inhibitor rofecoxib was withdrawn from the market after a trial found that the drug increased the risk of...

NEW YEAR NEW BODY

Posted on: January 14th, 2011

NEW YEAR NEW BODY. It’s that time of year when we make all sorts of promises to ourselves especially when it relates to the look, feel and capabilities of our body. I’ve now been using the Nutritional Cleansing Products by Isagenix for 10 months now and have lost 10 kilos (8.5 kilos in the first 4 weeks). Whilst this was initially my main aim I now stay on this program for health. I recently attended a seminar on the Science of Longevity. What I learned there confirmed to me the importance of providing our bodies with the best possible nutrition and the importance of keeping our...

Do you suffer from BACK PAIN?

Posted on: December 16th, 2010

Do you suffer from back problems with nerve pain (sciatica)? Now I know exactly how it feels… I’ve done a number of silly things over the years – falling off horses, moving heavy furniture and recently lifting a very large rock. For the last couple of months I’ve experienced severe pain in my lower back. But not one to admit defeat I kept going. Eventually I was advised by my chiropractor to have a CT Scan which revealed that I had severe damage to three discs, one of them prolapsed and impacting on a nerve. So if you have a longstanding back issue have it checked out – it could...

Can an Uplifting Oil Change the World?

Posted on: October 28th, 2010

Can an uplifting citrus smell help make a change for the better in our world? Yes, according to Research conducted by the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in Illinois. Using a citrus scented spray, US researchers have discovered participants are dramatically more ethical and charitable in their behaviour towards others. The smell of a clean and fresh room is sufficient to provoke a subconscious impulse towards fairness. Psychologist and professor, Adam Galinsky who worked on the study claimed, “basically our study shows that morality and cleanliness can go hand in...

Lavender Essential Oil

Posted on: October 28th, 2010

Lavender is one of the most versatile of the essential oils and has been used for centuries to treat a variety of conditions. The Romans added lavender to their bath water, hence the name derived from the word “to wash”, lavare. It is one of the few essential oils that can be used neat on the skin. When purchasing any essential oil make sure you purchase only the highest quality therapeutic essential oils. There is a difference! Many synthetic oils are marketed the same so if they seem cheaper it’s a good indication they’re not real or natural. Therapeutic Lavender can be used in...

THE HIPPOCRATIC OATH: CLASSICAL VERSION I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfill according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant: To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my parents and to live my life in partnership with him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspring as equal to my brothers in male lineage and to teach them this art—if they desire to learn it—without fee and covenant; to give a share of...

Hints for Nutritional Cleansing Program

Posted on: October 21st, 2010

HINTS FOR TAKING ISAGENIX *Take 30mL of IsaCleanse first thing each morning to help start the day. It’s very alkalising and is equal to eating approximately 20 servings of organic fruit and vegetables. Also taking 30mL of IsaCleanse after drinking alcohol or eating a very acid meal helps to neutralize their effect. For constipation try the juice of half a lemon in water water (warm is best to help with peristalsis* of the bowel) or take 30mL IsaCleanse and 2 capsules of IsaFlush morning and night or alternatively eat 3-4 kiwi fruit and 1 tblsp of flaxseed oil with breakfast or...
