A picture of health...

This image accurately sums up my life since I was 16! Despite experiencing numerous symptoms varying from sickness and exhaustion to headaches and skin problems, every medical test I had came back "normal".  This was generally seen as a good thing and a sign that there were no real issues and the symptoms I was experiencing were superficial. Sadly, new research shows that this was far from the truth. Recent research Recent research into psoriasis, for example, has shown a significant number of comorbidities linked to the condition. Cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, metabolic syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cancer, anxiety, depression, and inf

Could a gluten-free diet make you a better tennis player? ;)

According to Novak Djokovic, cutting out foods containing gluten, such as bread, pasta and pizza, has made him the tennis ace he is today. Novak is so passionate about the impact food intolerance had on his life that he has written a book Serve to Win, about how his diet changes altered his health and his tennis.

Food for thought...

Every day I read or hear another story about how changes in diet have resulted in dramatic changes to someone's health. I particularly love this video from Dr Terry Wahls, a medical physician from America who controlled and reversed her multiple sclerosis with diet after seven years of deterioration on the best conventional treatments available. She went from being wheelchair bound to cycling, horse riding  and living life to the fullest after changing her diet. Terry is a real inspiration and one of the best things about her is her experience with conventional treatments; she studied medicine and became and physician, and then experiencing conventional medicine as a patient for years before

Microbiome making headlines!

The field of human microbiome research has exploded in the last decade. This has resulted in the microbiome dominating headlines in almost every scientific journal, and now making an appearance in Time Magazine, Forbes, The Economist, The New Yorker, and National Geographics. According to the National Microbiome Initiative, 'Microbiomes are the communities of micro-organisms that live on or in people, plants, soil, oceans, and the atmosphere.
