I Insomnia is a type of sleep disorder in which a person has trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up too early. These disorders may also be characterised by an overall poor quality of sleep. Insomnia is the most commonly reported of all sleep disorders and can have a knock-on effect on our mood and our productivity. In the video below Dr Berg talks about ways to reverse insomnia, depression and anxiety. We also provide supportive supplements below to help you change the chemical and nutritional deficiencies which are also typically missing in a person’s diet who is finding sleep difficult.
For sleep to take place, the circadian cycle which governs sleeping and waking needs to be working correctly. Many of us watch TV at night and then stay up late, this will cause burn-out and adrenal stress if done for too long. The light and dark cycles are important to stimulate hormones, they release vitamin D which influence mood and sleep and awake mechanisms, morning sunlight is especially important, so make sure you take advantage of it even for just 10 minutes. Our foods these days don’t provide us adequate amounts of key minerals of potassium, calcium & Read More
T the most common virus found in humans is increasingly coming under the spotlight as a driver of many of the mystery illnesses plaguing humanity today. In fact, about 50% of children have been exposed to it at a very young age, and by adulthood, it is believed that at least 95% of the population has been affected by the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) .
When Dr. Alejandro Junger first introduced us to Anthony William—author of the fascinating forthcoming read, Medical Medium Thyroid Healing—we were immediately taken by his readings: He can scan the body from afar, and with the help of “Spirit,” explain what ails or does not, whether it’s a benign growth near the liver, an over-taxed adrenal system, or a rare blood disorder that might become a nuisance.
What’s even more compelling is that his explanations for what’s actually going on are rooted in common sense, and he proposes simple, nature-rooted remedies, like Read More

M most of the world’s population, even in developed countries, has inadequate intake of one or more of the ~40 essential vitamins and minerals, mostly used as co-factors by the proteins/ enzymes of metabolism.

Dr Bruce Ames takes us through the findings of his research and the essential 40 micro-nutrients. You can download his slideshow presentation, read his Triage Theory paper and Order the Biochemical Pathways diagram below. Read More
Fasting and Cancer
Fasting is nothing new. In fact, the practice has been part of medical recommendations and religious practices for centuries. But now we have scientific evidence to back up what we intuitively knew: Fasting can help the body rid itself of disease. One of the first major studies took place in 1945 and showed that intermittent fasting not only prolonged life but reduced the prevalence of breast cancer tumors in rats. Another more recent study in 2009 proved the practice can even reduce the severity of side effects due to high-dose chemotherapy.
W we’re constantly told that everything in our life needs balance – play vs. work, exercising vs. relaxing, veggies vs. chocolate and so on. But how important is that balance? As much as we’d all love to indulge in one thing more than another – usually something that’s more pleasurable and doesn’t require much effort – that sadly isn’t the way life works, and indeed it’s also not the way our body works.
