5 Mind-Blowing Ways Chocolate May Benefit Your Health

Everyone losing weight does not allow often scold themselves for eating even a few pieces of their favorite treats. While bitter chocolate is allowed even for those who lose weight, milk chocolate has a bad reputation. But did you know that cocoa is a kind of superfood?  Recent studies show, even milk chocolate is good but only if it doesn’t contain various trans fats.

How a healthy breakfast can switch your life upside down

How a healthy breakfast can switch your life upside down
We all crave getting breakfast in bed. Wake up on a Sunday, stretch a little, only to be greeted by a tray of breakfast waiting to be devoured. But as soon as you go to grab the tray, your alarm goes off and you realize it’s Thursday, you’re late for work and you really need to get up and have a heavy and healthy breakfast to get you through the day. On a weekend, the healthy breakfasts of Richmond’s numerous cafes sound wonderful, but on a weekday, it’s highly improbable. Although it can be tempting to rush and down a black coffee on the way to your daily 9-to-5 without anything solid in your belly, once you do actually begin having a healthy breakfast in the morning, you’ll end up waking up a tad early only to get something sufficient in your stomach.  It is impossible to realize the value of breakfast as...

The Puzzle of H. pylori: The Environmental Illness Connection

Herbal Remedies for H. pylori Infection
So here we are folks with the third and final part of my 3-part blog series about my journey linking Helicobactor pylori (H. pylori) infection to my environmental illness. To get up to speed please take a look at Part I (The Science) and Part II (My Personal Pylori Project).   H. pylori and EI The general theme of bad bug overgrowth wasn't new to me – I'd already been dealing with Candida and SIBO issues. Obviously, it won't be new to most people with EI either. It seems that lurking infections of all kinds – Lyme, EBV, herpes, strep, pylori, candida and many others – can often be 'the elephant in the room' that we need to address to fully recover. Maybe sometimes when we work on resolving some of these other infections, we make progress with any lurking pylori issues too, as many herbs and probiotics are effective...

The Puzzle of H. pylori: My Personal Pylori Project

Mastic Gum
Hi again! In Part 1 (The Puzzle of H. pylori: The Science) I explained what Helicobacter pylori is, how it invades the body, the symptoms it causes - basically, all the science stuff. Here in Part 2 of my trilogy of posts on my H. pylori experience I'm going to talk about my own personal H. pylori project i.e. my experiments with various foods and herbal remedies in my efforts to come up with my own treatment and eradicate the little pest from my body!   My personal pylori project The core of my plan has been the rather fantastic mastic gum, a herbal remedy from a Greek pistachio tree with potent anti-pylori activity. A little goes a long way – my pot of 13g lasted me 3 weeks. I'd just like to run through some more of the details of my plan, to give you an idea of the...
