Tips and tricks for remembering to take your supplements A friend told me recently that he'd been taking some very high quality supplements but hadn't noticed any difference in his health. He asked if he should continue taking them. "How many have you taken already, and when did you start?", I asked. "About half a pot, and about 6 months ago" was his reply. So he'd taken two weeks' worth of supplements over six months. That's like saying you had a full 7 hours' sleep on 14 days out of 6 months, but you can't understand why you're not feeling [...]

Superfood Salad

We like to have one of these amazing, nutrient-dense salads on the go during the summer (and the winter, for that matter), so we make enough for a few days and keep it in the fridge. We use quinoa (a complete-protein grain with a lovely crunchy texture), lashings of olive oil, lemon juice and rind (the rind is packed full of healthy phytonutrients), along with various other superfood ingredients for a good dose of vitamins and other nutrients. Add your own healthy ingredient ideas in to the recipe below to ring the changes.

Statins – friend or foe?

Have you or a family member been prescribed a statin? Highly likely if you're into middle age - over 6 million people in the UK are on the drug, and Pfizer's Lipitor is the most profitable drug in the history of medicine. Originally, statins were only prescribed to people considered to be at high risk of having a heart attack. They are now increasingly prescribed to people over the age of 50 even if they have normal cholesterol levels. In 2014, NICE (the UK's National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) revised their guidelines on when to initiate statin treatment, [...]

Maintaining a Rolls Royce with a 13-mm spanner

A recent study found that people with higher intakes (through diet and supplementation) of vitamins A, D and E have fewer respiratory complaints. This was picked up by multiple media outlets, and even the nutrition-skeptic UK government Health Secretary has now ordered a review into vitamin D after dismissing its benefits. But while the new official interest in essential micronutrients for health protection has to be welcomed, it is still exasperatingly myopic to those of us who like to look at the big, holistic picture. I am not a fan of picking out a few nutrients. I think it's a [...]

Treat or trick?

We've all seen (or at least heard about) those people back in March this year who were panic-filling their trolleys with fizzy drinks and "goodies" from the snack aisles to keep the kids happy. And tonight, on Hallowe'en, the double nightmare of sugary treats and throwaway plastics sends chills down the spine. These treats are well-intentioned. Of course no-one would dream of poisoning their children intentionally or setting them up for chronic disease. But unintentionally, this is what is happening every day all over the Western world and in developing countries. In 2016, an NHS survey estimated that 16 percent [...]

Propaganda that makes you sick

A recent tweet by the UK PM's official account suggested that we entertain ourselves by baking. It appears the Great British Public don't need much encouragement on that front, as replies to the tweet complained that flour was in short supply in shops. But the government's seemingly harmless exhortation to eat cake and carry on is dangerous and irresponsible, and is part of a problem that goes far deeper than shopping difficulties. My recent Facebook feed has been peppered with pictures of simnel cake and easter eggs, and I've been hearing the same messages from friends over and over during [...]

What about the immune system?

Viruses are everywhere. There are an estimated 380 trillion viruses inhabiting our bodies (here's a very interesting article about the human virome). There's a lot of talk about treating viral disease at the moment, and about developing vaccines, but generally in the mainstream media there is very little information on our own innate resources. I feel compelled to redress the balance a bit, and give some information on how we can protect ourselves. There are two aspects to not contracting symptoms of a virus. On the one hand it's about minimising exposure... hand-washing, wearing a mask, avoiding contact... But just [...]

Viruses and cellular nutrition: an immunologist’s perspective

Studies as far back as the 1960s and 70s looked at the higher rates of infection in malnourished children in developing countries in comparison with those who were adequately nourished. These were epidemiological (population) studies. But laboratory research has been demonstrating the role of micronutrition in cellular immunity for decades, too. "There's no virus that can penetrate a healthy cell fed with nutrition at optimal levels."Dr Myron Wentz, PhD Microbiology, specialty in immunology This was the bold statement made by Dr. Myron Wentz in 2019. On the face of it, this seems like a fairly outrageous claim. But the word [...]
