Feed your gut bugs.

Feed your gut bugs.

  Our guts are the largest component of the immune system in our body,  thanks mostly to the microbiata – the large colony of 10-100 trillion symbiotic microbial cells.  These microbial cells have their own genetic material and the totality of this genetic information is called the microbiome.  Our microbiome is unique to each of us and you have the power to control this huge population, reaping all the amazing health rewards as a result.

Why Homeopathy is worth a try

  I love homeopathy.  It is a system of medicine that is constantly under attack by sceptics, however there is a long history of observational evidence and personal experience supporting the use of homeopathy as a safe and effective adjunct to any wellness prescription. Homeopathy is based on the premise that “like cures like”.  This idea was expanded upon and developed by Samuel Hahnemann in 1790 when he was studying herbal medicine and experimented on himself and his family with dosages.  He took an extract of the Peruvian Cinchona bark in high......
