The good news is that you can mitigate these effects by following a few simple steps.

These three things must change if we are to reclaim our health

By

If you are one of the millions, planning out your new year’s resolutions, or what I prefer to call ‘the first week of Jan to-do list’, please read this first.

If we are to reclaim our health and minimize our risk of illness, we need:

  • A reformed understanding of nutrition: the role it plays in our health, and an overhaul of dietary guidelines.
  • The need for individualized medicine and a move away from the one-size-fits-all approach.
  • An informed public: questioning the status quo and making educated lifestyle choices to become better advocates for our health.

Road tripping through Utah: Zion National Park

During my time there, I drove to Zion National Park in Utah. This is an account of my day trip to Zion, a magical land that lives up to its biblical name.READ MORE

He said it would heal in a few weeks. Eleven months later, in a sigh of resignation, I declared ‘I’m done’. I had reached my last nerve. Little did I know, these two words would activate a healing power within me, a power to end a year of heartache and desperation. READ MORE

Nrf2: the ultimate anti-aging weapon

By
  • Nrf2 is a protein promising to be the next big thing in anti-aging science
  • It lies within each of our cells and regulates the antioxidants that fight illness
  • Certain foods activate the release of Nrf2 and its biological pathways

Getting old just happens right? But have you ever stopped to consider how aging actually works? For an industry set to rocket to $216 billion by the year 2021, men and women in white lab coats are working endlessly to figure out how to prevent wrinkles. Beyond vanity though, aging has a more serious implication; it causes illness. The older we get the more prone we are to ill health. Most recently, scientists have focused their efforts on what could be our most powerful agent in the fight against aging and age related disease; the best part – you don’t need to buy it.

My first Spartan Race

By

Yesterday I ran my first ever Spartan race. For those unfamiliar, Spartan races are obstacle courses ran over varying distances: 3+ miles (Sprint), 8+ miles (Super) and 12+ miles (Beast). As a newcomer to the sport I played it safe and entered the Sprint: twenty obstacles spread out over 3 miles. Despite being my first Spartan, the race happened five months later than planned. I originally applied to run the Sprint in April but was held back due to wrist tendonitis. Five months on, several treatments later and with Kinesio Tape planted on my arm, I was ready and determined to strike Spartan off my 2016 goals. Here is what happened…..READ MORE
