What is Health? Is It More Than an Absence of Disease?

5/13/2019
More
Whenever I have asked an audience this question most people intuitively know that health is far more than freedom from diseases.

It is unfortunate that modern medicine has been primarily...

The Other "Five a Day" for Children

3/7/2019
More
Every parent has become increasingly aware of the need for good nutrition, good exercise, supportive home and school environment for the health and wellbeing of their children. The government campaigns have advised “Five a Day” and more sport in schools, but as yet there has been no recognition of the equally vital matter of good breathing for good health. Poor breathing has been the hidden, silent factor responsible for many childhood health problems that can lay the foundation for a wide...

Health and Fitness, Are They The Same?

2/23/2019
More
There is a lot of interest in keeping fit, getting fit and fitness training systems. But what is fitness? Is it about improving one's health? Is it about developing muscle bulk and strength? Is it about building stamina and physical abilities? Wikipedia has a definition: Physical fitness is a state of health and well-being and, more specifically, the ability to perform aspects of sports, occupations and daily activities.

What is Asthma? - Big Business or Medical Confusion?

2/21/2019
More
“What is Asthma?” This question was posed in the Lancet over twelve years ago (Vol. 368, No. 9537, 26/8/06) and demonstrated there is no consensus to the answer. To add to the confusion recent research suggested that up to 40% of those diagnosed with asthma had been wrongly diagnosed and should not be on the medication prescribed.

What's The Cause of a Disease? Pathology or Ethology?

2/11/2019
More
Many years ago I asked myself the question, “What is the cause of health or what is the etiology of health?” A much wiser and experienced doctor also asked himself this same question over eighty years ago, he was a pathologist and although he understood the origin of most diseases, he had no answer to this question. He spent the rest of his life researching the question and his work is still as valid today as it was then. I have published a podcast on this, Episode 7 entitled “Health is...

There’s no doubt that bacon is one of our favourite foods, the English breakfast is traditionally based on bacon and eggs with various other foods added. The bacon roll is a hot favourite as a quick snack. Sausages wrapped in bacon are regarded as a real treat. Bacon has decidedly become part of our national diet, but to meet this demand from fifty plus million consumers the farming of pigs has had to go big.

A simple experiment has been repeated many times, two matched groups, one on a high-fat diet and the other on a carb-rich diet are challenged with a heavy dose of glucose. The first group’s blood sugar far exceeds the second group. It has taken seventy years to discover the cause of type 2 diabetes, but it may take longer for this discovery to change the approach to this condition.

Is Your Doctor a Health Doctor or a Sickness Doctor?

1/28/2019
More
This is a serious question that goes to the heart of our current crisis in the NHS. Most Doctors are trained as pathologists and have very little training in health promotion or natural health therapy. The very word “Doctor” used to mean “Teacher” in the days when physicians had to make do with the few simple remedies at hand and then do their best to understand why their patients were sick and try to motivate them to help themselves as much as possible with good advice.

There is a vast amount of misinformation on this subject or as Mr. Trump would say “Fake News”. In part because of commercial forces trying to sell their wares and in part due to lack of up-to-date research and ignorance. There are two main factors that you have control over, that will significantly improve your physical health and performance, they are what you eat and how you breathe.

There is no argument that if we were all more mindful we would be happier, or at least less stressed in our daily lives. Training to be mindful throughout our waking lives demands the mental discipline of a Buddhist monk, but there is an alternative path to this goal that all of us can achieve through better breathing.

Here again is yet another vital factor in our health that is hardly discussed in medicine. We can survive weeks without food but only a few days without water, we are 75% made of water, we don't have copper wires to carry nerve signals, our nerves are fluid wires and our brain is 85% water. Imagine the consequences of serious water loss, how it would affect the entire functioning of our body and in particular our nervous system and our ability to use our brain.
