  • Natural medicines in your kitchen

    Although we are getting towards the end of February, the cold and wet days are not over yet, and it's a time of year when many of us keep getting the sniffles and feeling low on energy.

    We are all tempted to top up on vitamins and supplements, which is a great idea (do check Native Elements' February/March offer) but there is a lot of food in our kitchen that can help support our immune system and help us stay healthy - here are a few:

    Ginger: Good for alleviating migraines or can improve blood flow and reduce inflammation in muscles including those in the uterus.

    Cinnamon: This is a natural blood sugar stabiliser, it stimulates insulin receptors, and helps lower the blood-sugar lowering hormone to produce less insulin in order to create the desired effect.

    Turmeric: This is a natural anti-inflammatory and good for those who suffer with things like psoriasis, thanks to the compound called curcumin.

    Cranberry or blueberry: This is good for urinary tract infections. They contain a substances that inhibit the binding of bacteria to bladder tissue.

    Garlic: Garlic is great for getting rid of parasites, it provides a sulphur containing amino acid that is anti-parasitic, plus garlic is also a natural antibiotic.

    Oatmeal: Oatmeal can sooth rashes because it has phytochemicals that have anti-inflammatory properties.

    Coconut oil: Great moisturiser.

    Sea salt: This is great for disinfecting wounds or can be used as an exfoliator using one cup of sea salt with ½ a cup of a light massage oil.

    Cucumber: Aids puffy eyes Cucumber is 95% water with a nice cooling sensation that causes blood vessels to constrict and reduce inflammation.

    Prunes: Rich in insoluble fibre a key nutrient to help fight constipation. This type of fibre does not dissolve in water helping waste to move along.

    Apples for heartburn: the pectin in the apple helps to absorb stomach acid. Plus, the fruit contains two types of acid (malic and tartaric) that work to beat back any juices that flow up from your stomach (acid reflux)

    I hope using these natural remedies will help you and your family stay healthy with high energy levels. To find out more about what Nutrition can do for you, do not hesitate to email me to arrange an appointment or recommend a friend.



  • To detox or not to detox?

    We are well into January and statistics show that New Year resolutions are well and truly forgotten.

    However it is not too late to consider a detox. Many of the people I come across have heard of the concept but have never done one, are unsure of why they would need one, don’t know how to go about it and what the benefits of doing one are.

    There are in fact many benefits to detoxing once or twice a year, and January is a good time as most of us will have indulged over the festive season and the start of a new year gives a sense of fresh purpose. In a typically western diet, the amount of food we eat and the types of foods we consume on a regular basis, such as sugar, wheat, fats and salt, put a strain on the digestive system. Imagine taking your car for a service, the first thing they do is to change the oil and the filter and effectively clean it out before they put in any new oil, and you have to admit that the car runs a lot better after it’s been serviced. These principles work for us too! The detox allows the body to get rid of morbid matter, to regenerate, to remove the toxic waste and make way for a healthier gut. By cleaning and eliminating parasites and candida and giving your digestion a good rest, it will function more efficiently.

    As a result you will have more energy, will feel better and lighter, have a stronger immune system with clearer skin and healthier hair.

    Doing a detox doesn’t have to be daunting or boring. The 8-day detox programme I recommend consists of a raw food diet, and a food state supplemental programme. Food state supplements such as the Native Elements range which I have brought to the UK are better absorbed and better retained by the body. The supplements I recommend include caprylic acid, milk thistle, multivitamin and mineral and the antioxidant with Q10. Foods to avoid are coffee, tea, dairy, fizzy drinks, processed foods and I provide a list of recommended foods.

    Headaches may be a symptom of detoxing, this is quite normal, it’s the body’s way of getting rid of toxins. Make sure you’re always well hydrated as water plays a very important role during this process. It’s well worth it in the end.

    This is what one of my patients says: 'I came to see Christina with a few ailments. Within 8 days of being on her excellent detox programme, I feel so much better, and she diagnosed that I should not be eating certain foods which were irritating me. I cannot thank you enough Christina as if I had gone to a doctor I would simply have been prescribed medication, without getting to the source of the problem and sorting it out naturally. Highly recommended!'

    For more details, or if interested in trying this program, please email me to arrange an appointment.

    I hope you’ll take the challenge as I’m sure you won’t regret it.



  • People lacking in vitamin D have a higher risk of developing dementia

    The study was carried out by researchers from the University of Exeter Medical School in the UK. The study found people severely lacking in the sunshine vitamin were twice as likely to develop dementia and Alzheimer's disease compared with people with healthy levels (50nmol/l or more).

    The findings are based on a study of more than 1,650 people aged 65 and above who were followed over a period of about six years to see if they developed dementia.

    Researchers found the higher the vitamin D deficiency, the higher the risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

    They found severe vitamin D deficiency (less than 25nmol/l) is associated with approximately twice the risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

    Moderately low levels of vitamin D (between 25nmol/l and 50nmol/l) are associated with a 50% increase in risk.



  • What is food state?

    Why not try our supplements! Food state is quite different, they are not synthetic, as they come in the form of a food matrix, and in other words, they are made of food! They are well absorbed, and are not antagonistic against each other. If you want natural supplements try Native Elements…



  • Having problems with dandruff?

    Having dandruff can happen for many reasons, it can also happen due to a possible deficiency. As a Food State company, we aim at providing the best nutrients for the body, ones that are easily absorbed and recognised by the body. Yes, sure you can use Head and shoulders, but for some of us this may be quite harsh on the skin, so why not use one of our supplements to see if it gets rid of some of that flaky scalp? It may help alliviate the itching that come with having dandruff!

    Use some selenium and help fight that flaky scalp!
