Healthy Eating

Without doubt the greatest influence on our health is the food we eat & the beverages we imbibe. It is by far the most critical factor, although certainly not the only one.

Nearly all chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes & many others,  have a strong nutritional component! This is widely accepted. Although only recently acknowledged by modern medicine, this link has been understood & written about by natural therapists for hundreds of years.

The common idea of healthy eating today is NOT leadng to health improvements. The opposite is true: this diet style is killing us!

The average Australian (western) diet derives 50% of its calories from refined & processed carbohydrates (white sugar & white flour products), 43% from animal sources & refined oils ( meat, chicken, fish, dairy & oils) & only 7% from fresh vegetables & fruits. This Standard Aussie Diet (SAD) is a serious health hazard.

This is not including the alcohol, caffeine, tobacco & prescribed & over-the-counter (OTC) drugs which are often deemed harmless, &, in the case of alcohol & caffeine, beneficial.

As Dr John McDougall states, ‘people love to hear good news about their bad habits!’.

Tragically, it’s what I call ‘suicide by knife, fork, cup & glass!’

However, there is a better way.
