In the Finnish Kuopio Ischemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study, investigating over 2000 middle-aged men, researchers came to the following conclusions:
Sauna use 2-3 times per week reduced the likelihood of death from cardiovascular-related causes by 27%
Sauna use 2-3 times per week was associated with a 66% and 65% lower likelihood of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease….
I had several individuals asking me “how can I create a low toxin space at home… and where should I start?” And the answer is almost always: the bedroom. Bedrooms are our sanctuary: this is a place where we spend the majority of our time, sleeping.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has officially declared the global coronavirus crisis a pandemic. WHO has defined the pandemic as “an outbreak of a new pathogen that spreads easily from person to person across the globe”. Coronavirus presents challenging problems towards its pathogenic capacity and mutagenic potential. Medicine has very little to offer with treatments for viral diseases. Ozone therapy is a highly effective treatment and prevention for the coronavirus…
Our parasympathetic nervous system is largely operated by our vagus nerve – which originates from our brainstem and runs through our entire body. Our vagus nerve is unbelievably intricate and regulates the controls of our heart, gut and lungs. It also branches out to our liver, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, spleen, kidneys, reproductive organs and some muscles.
“The coronavirus outbreak has been labeled a global health emergency by the World Health Organization.”
In light of recent media attention surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, everyone is becoming increasingly concerned with infection and safety for their family and loved ones. In this blog post we will discuss how you can build and maintain a strong immune system.
In this article we will discuss the impacts of trauma and understand how it affects our health.

Psychological trauma can result from witnessing an event that is perceived to be life-threatening or to pose the potential of injury both physically and emotionally to ourselves or others.
Gut health is central to our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. It is connected to everything that happens in our body and therefore also directly linked to the formation of disease. Intestinal health or gut health could be defined as the optimal digestion, absorption and assimilation of food. Sounds simple right? However, the optimal functioning of our gastrointestinal system depends on many other factors.
There is a clear association between gum disease and heart disease. Researchers have established that individuals with periodontal disease are double as likely to have or develop heart disease.
The link between the two is the role of bacteria from the gums, which has a cascade of inflammatory reactions.
Contrary to conventional wisdom, brain regeneration is possible. One promising therapy that promotes neurogenesis and is effective in pre-clinical studies of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s is near infrared light therapy, and it may improve other mental illnesses and neurodegenerative disorders including dementia, stroke, ALS, and traumatic brain injury as well.
Everything you do, your awareness, movements, thoughts, emotions and feelings are the result of your nerve cells talking with one another. However, what happens when your neurotransmitters aren’t communicating properly and is there anything you can do?
