The Puzzle of H. pylori: The Science

H. pylori Under a Microscope
Hi there! I'd like to share my recent experiences with a new healing venture – a plan for dealing with H. pylori. I started this little experiment in November and it's proved to be one of the best health improvement projects for me so far. Believe me, I have done a lot of different initiatives over the past 8 years and this one has produced improvements with quite remarkable speed. OK, don't let's get too carried away now, I'm not 'normal' yet, but when you've been pretty incapacitated, any improvement is cause for celebration! This is a fairly long story folks, but if you're not in the mood to sit through the full details, maybe flip through to The bottom line, where I've provided a summary (Part 3). So what's the problem with H. pylori? Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is an intriguing beast – of the large proportion of people who play host to this bacteria, only some notice any unpleasant...

Climate, Weather and Environmental Illness

Climate, weather and environmental illness
I was lucky enough to spend two weeks on holiday/vacation in Turkey recently to recuperate after over-exerting my body and brain completing my bachelor's degree in nutritional health. Being a resident of the UK with its, let's say temperamental weather, I really notice a change in how I feel (mostly good, some bad) when I spend time in a country where the climate is warmer and sunnier. This got me thinking that a good topic for a blog and dscussion would be how climate and weather affect the health of people suffering from environmental illnesses. Personally, my moods and energy levels are greatly influenced by the weather and the seasons and I have in the past been diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Here in the UK it can be sunny one minute and raining the next at any time of year. When it is sunny my mood is correspondingly bright...

Symptoms and Progression of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

This week I thought I'd try to get all you multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) sufferers involved and conduct a kind of survey so we can see the most common symptoms of the condition and how it develops in different people. I hope this is an idea that interests you and you'll get involved by leaving comments below. First of all I'd like to discuss my personal feeling on what MCS actually is. There has been a lot of confusion among both doctors and patients about whether MCS is an allergic condition or a neurological condition. My personal feeling through experience of the illness and reveiwing the available scientific literature is that it is most definitely a neurological disease caused by neurotoxicity (toxic damage to the brain).  A leading theory which I believe to be along the right lines involves a process called 'limbic sensitization'. The idea is that either acute or chronic...

Could Mold be Causing your Health Problems?

I was watching an episode of 'King of the Hill' the other day in which the Hill family were told they had a mold problem in their home. While the episode was very funny (as always!) it put across the message that mold isn't something that needs to be taken seriously and that anyone suggesting your house has a mold problem is a conman. This attitude is very widespread with the public and even many healthcare providers often dismiss the possibility of mold being at the root of health issues. Unfortunately mold in reality can be the cause of
