      National Mental Health Week

      Published May, 2014

      May 5th to11th has been designated National Mental Health Week. On its web, the Canadian Mental Health Association states that: "Mental health is not only the avoidance of serious mental illness. Your mental health is affected by numerous factors from your daily life, including the stress of balancing work with your health and relationships." My suggestion is that this definition is incomplete. Indeed, a perusal of the majority of "official" websites dealing with mental health either minimize or completely omit the role of nutrition in mental health. This is very unfortunate since our mental health is affected as much by our diet as it is by our relationships.

      The (microbial) apocalypse is at our door!

      Published May, 2014

      When are we going to learn? In my book Candida Albicans, published in the late 90s I had already suggested that if we did not take care to increase our natural immunity, yeast infections would be minimal compared to the new immune challenges. Since then we have had SARS, mad cow decease, Lyme disease, west Nile virus, flesh eating bacteria and now, antibiotic resistance.

      April is Irritable bowel awareness month

      Published April, 2014

      Irritable bowel, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a diagnosis of exclusion. Or, if you prefer, it tells us what is going on, but not why. When someone suffers from a variety of gastrointestinal disorders, including gas, bloating, constipation or diarrhea, or both alternating, and tests are unable to detect the cause, they are generally told they have irritable bowel. In some cases the irritable bowel is associated with stress, in other cases the physician admits not knowing the cause.

      Getting back into shape for summer.

      Published April, 2014

      In most of us the dawn of spring awakens the urge to get back into shape. Part of it may be due to vanity, our bodily flaws are more evident as we wear less clothing, and part of it may also be due to the realisation that being fit is being healthy. Unfortunately, for a lot of people getting back into shape is almost exclusively associated with weight loss through either calorie restriction, increased calorie expenditure, or both.

      Cancer, a degenerative disease

      Published April, 2014

      As mentioned in a previous blog, a significant number of studies highlight the role of environmental pollutants and lifestyle in triggering and enhancing the development of cancer. These are the same factors that increase the risk as well as the incidence of cardiovascular disease as well as other degenerative diseases. I hint on some of these effects in my two part article on degenerative disease mentioned in a previous blog j: "Degenerative Diseases I - Putting the problem in perspective" and "Degenerative Diseases II - Natural Prevention and Treatment". It's worth taking a look at these to put things in perspective.

      Published April, 2014

      Though autism and autism related conditions are not nutritional and probably not environmental, research has shown that environmental factors as well as nutrition play a role in exacerbating or improving both the disease symptoms as well as treatment outcomes. Over fifty years ago American clinical psychologist, Dr. Bernard Rimland began using nutrition to help his autistic patients. In 1967 he founded the Autism Research Institute in order to further research on this disorder.

      Though cancer treatment modalities have improved treatment outcome, cancer is still on the rise in North America. Cancers hit people younger and with more force than before. We can treat these increasingly high numbers of cancers more effectively, and with far less side effects than ever. However, we shouldn't have to treat them because people shouldn’t get them!
