Hello, welcome to podcast # 26 I’m Michael Lingard Orthopath, Buteyko Educator and Plantrician introducing perhaps the most important question for us all today, What Is Health? Is It More Than an Absence of Disease? Whenever I have asked an audience this question most people intuitively know that health is far more than freedom from diseases. Although health is a very difficult concept to define we do know what are the main causes of good health. If you have ever wondered what are these...

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 and supportive home & 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 & Fitness, Are They The Same? 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?

More
What is Asthma? – Big Business or Medical Confusion? “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. (Middlemore & Green Hospitals March 25th 2007) This must seem confusing for all those suffering the many...

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

2/11/2019

Podcast 22: What’s The Cause of a Disease? Pathology or Ethology? 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...

Pigs Bite Back or "Pig Karma"!

Pigs Bite Back or “Pig Karma”! 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. Now pig farming is no longer a idyllic country...

Diabetes Management and Treatment: Where’s the Problem Carbs or Fats?

Diabetes Management and Treatment: Where’s the Problem Carbs or Fats? 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. For blood sugar to be absorbed into our cells insulin is needed. Insulin is the key that unlocks the door to let sugar in...

Is Your Doctor a Health Doctor or a Sickness Doctor?

A Serious Question for the NHS 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...

Podcast # 15 Boost Your Sports Performance & Physical Fitness 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. 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. Let’s start with the most sensitive subject; what you...

Podcast # 14 Mindfulness and Your Breathing One of my inspiring teachers, a Dr. Scott-Williamson of the Peckham Experiment fame, said we all live in three states throughout our lives; the first is living , the second is surviving and the third is dying. By living, he meant living healthily, intensely and fully. Enjoying or experiencing every waking moment, the kind of living of most toddlers enjoy, where every day is a wealth of new discoveries, experiences and magic. By surviving, he meant...

Podcast # 13 Water – The Foundation of Health & Life 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...

Real Health Insurance for free! Millions of people spend millions of £’s on health insurance, but it doesn’t guarantee health, reduce the chance of sickness or improve the chance of better health. Most health insurance systems don’t even pay for your medical treatment if you suffer from a health problem you have had before, which is the most likely thing to happen. There is always the chance that even with the very best effort on the individual’s part to stay healthy, they may fall ill by...
