Biofilms are a sticky cover made by bacteria - often encapsulating bad bacteria leading to chronic health conditions and fatigue. The National Institutes of Health estimates that more than 80% of microbial infections in the human body are caused by biofilm, many of them creating chronic conditions.Read More
Autoimmune diseases are a pain in the neck to deal with for those who struggle with it - your own immune system attacking yourself, seems like nature is almost against you. We expect our immune system to PROTECT us, not attack us, right? Well, here's the deal. When we undergo stressors, changes take place on a cellular level - and if the health of the cell-membranes is compromised, hydrolase will begin to leak from the cells out into your body, where an autoimmune reaction will often happen.Read More
Women are not men, surprise. Neither psychologically nor biochemically are we wired similar. There is a lot of freedom to be found in accepting that we are different (yet of equal worth), and we need not follow the same paths to succeed in body, mind and soul mastery. And there is a lot of misery in trying to function as men in the work place and also copying the same food behaviors, because it works for them. We need to find our own formula to thrive in the skin we are in – as women and as individuals. There are a lot of studies out there focusing on men – and taking those results as the golden rule for everyone. Women have 52% levels of serotonin compared to men. This is also why more women than men struggle with eating disorders.Read More
Food is the strongest medicine we have. That is, when you understand how to use it for different diseases. No one can patent food as God made it, and thank... well, God for that.
This is, however, where it also often gets complicated. Because we can't patent something, few resources is set off to promote it, regardless of how efficient the cure is - simply because the profit is very low in doing so. The science of using food to cure diseases from a-z goes back thousands of years. It is well studied regardless of modern Medicine only recently being open for integrating nutritional and gene science into Western treatment modalities.Read More
Meet Christina Santini
Did you know that almost every single synthetic medicine is inspired by a plant? And that the reason we don't utilize the intelligence that already exists in nature is a matter of profit: we cannot patent plants and this means the profit margin is lower, if we choose to turn towards natural medicine - medicine that our body can actually understand and recognize at a cell-level. This in stark contrast to all the nasty side-effects of synthetic medication. The science of how different plants work against different diseases has been shown time and time again to be next-to-none in the laboratory. Plants outperform any man-made drug. So why are we trying to reinvent what already exists and is perfect? Last week I was featured in VoyageLA on my thoughts on food, nutrition and why we get sick.Read More

People with brain tumors should be selective about antidepressants.There is a chemical made in the brain called glial cell-line derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF). GDNF is mainly responsible for repair of neurons after injury. However, the problem is that it also helps brain tumor cells survive. It also helps tumor cells migrate and invade surrounding brain tissue.Read More

Green smoothies are great for using up those spare parts of vegetables that you just don’t know what to do with.
