What Should You Eat? Wrong Question!

When considering diet in the health/weight management idea sphere perhaps the most common question is what should we eat to manage health conditions and/or manage weight right? Just like when an investor/speculator questions what they should put their money into to hopefully make money. What about what you should sell to make money? Same goes with health and weight management, what should you NOT eat? We all hear the low fat, low cholesterol, low carbs, high protein, lots of fruit and vegetables, and whole grains – just being some of the go to foods…

The Real Truth Behind Kidney Stones

I’m talking from experience regarding kidney stones when I wasn’t aware of how my illness woes were really happening. There was no conviction from the doctors I encountered regarding kidney stone avoidance, I just remember thinking I’m not giving up the foods they said to avoid. I don’t remember what diet was recommended which indicates their lack of conviction and following a particular script. I didn’t encounter any further kidney stone event after that anyway, and I certainly won’t encounter kidney stones ever again. …

Skin Care: Products Versus Nutrition

We’ve seen the catalogs full of skin care products together with aisles full of the stuff in department stores and that’s not including the baby oil, Vaseline, and moisturisers in grocery and convenience stores which are all catering for people seeking to ‘care’ for their skin. I ask how could putting goop on your skin be caring for it? Add to the skin care complex the avoidance of sun exposure and we are living in upside down land. You’d guess that I’ll be on the nutrition side of the skin care fence as the title…

Cooking Magnificence and Pica

100 plus years ago food was ordinary compared to today. This even ordinary food was expensive all through human history and the variety was limited. However there were pockets of exquisite food in restaurants which catered for those that had money, but it still wasn’t the same caliber as some of the magnificent cuisines dished up in this day and age. Even 25 years ago food variety and restaurant offerings were not even in the same league as we have it now. Why is this? Many an explanation would arrive at things like restaurant and food…

Kidney Disease: What 95% of Cases Really Are About

One of the go to bread and butter blood tests that your doctor will order you to subject yourself to is kidney function levels. Those numbers which come back are based on established norms over decades and we always hope to be on the normal functioning scale of course. But more and more people are becoming kidney disease patients these days and the problem isn’t your genes as most doctors will tell you.

Botox or Nutrition: What Choice for Your Wrinkles?

My bias is on the nutrition front, and I’m coming from the position of also receiving Botox myself for the alluring benefits which is promised with these face injections. Those promises are realised though, you do get a wrinkle reduction or even elimination if you start early enough (pre 30s). What about the rest of your body? As we get into our 50s we have often seen the incongruent mix of flawless face and leathery neck to toe. I have discussed wrinkles before and this commentary is in the same sphere with…

LGBTQI+ and Nutrient Deficiency: A Link?

This subject may come across as controversial to some but it is a real published phenomena which also is challenged, but it needs to be stated as a thing. Just like any other concept about sexuality which is in favour or not in the LGBTIQ+ or heterosexual community. I in no way aim to downplay the current lives of LGBTIQ+ individuals and its community and I am coming out to suggest their is a health aspect in the mother regarding sexual orientation formation at conception. So I am not in the camp suggesting that…

Questions Answered: A Look at the Benefits of Keto

It’s keto’s turn to face the music. But it’s more of a soft challenge because keto does have merits in health. Certainly more than other diets which have passed our observation through the decades. Many have had success with keto or another particular diets, but how many are still on these diets and not gone back to being obese and being chronically ill? Some which will profess success in a diet may have become great restrictors, suffering from tremendous cravings (pica) a micro nutrient deficiency. …

A Question Answered on Quora About Obesity Causes in Children

Most readers already knowing the ideas I advocate will understand where I would go on this question. It still surprises me the amount of dismissal on the concept of nutrient deficiency we are experiencing more and more these days, and it won’t stop until those which are nourished will be showing they outlive the malnourished by 50 years. So this still may take a while to be fully realised. I hope the answer to the question drives home what we need to be doing.

Question Answered: Cancer, Viagra, and Calories Subjects

Today I’m answering questions from Quora about what foods to eat when fighting cancer. Also whether viagra will help men in their 20s, and an insight into calorie counting for those fixated on that. A regular reader would guess my take on these would be nutrients, while the calorie question is one question without a nutrient feel.
