Sensitive individuals can experience reactions when consuming
MSG-containing foods.

Anxiety disorders are the most common type of mental health disorder, with many people experiencing some form of anxiety in their lifetime.

nervous system, the anxiety will pass as soon as the stressor has disappeared, and everything has returned to normal again.

Wendy Christien - 28 July 2022 - Are diseases of lifestyle really reversible?

Are diseases of lifestyle really reversible? The answer is a resounding yes, but it comes with a but!
Lifestyle diseases are described in the words – they are diseases of lifestyle. To change our health, we need to make consistent choices and changes so that we can reverse disease and enjoy wellness and vitality. Not only are these diseases reversible, but they are preventable too. We do not have to develop chronic diseases just because our family members have them. Certain things are inherited, but our habits are also inherited, and we have the power to change those.

Wendy Christien - 21 July 2022 - The dangers of Smoking

We all know that smoking is bad for our health, yet so many people still find themselves starting a habit that is really hard to break.
The stats show that although SA’s population is smoking less, 20% of our country’s adult population is still smoking. 20% doesn’t sound like a lot necessarily, but when you think that 20% of 59 million people is still 12 million people, we have to realize that it is still a very big problem.
Wendy walks us through the effect smoking has on our overall health.

Wendy Christien - 14 July 2022 - Dairy - Good or Bad?

Milk and other dairy products are high in saturated fats, which is not the good
type of fat that we want to be consuming on a regular basis. Saturated fats
accumulate in the arteries and around the organs.
Consuming dairy products adds to the load on the body and can contribute to
heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, as well as an increased risk for
breast, ovarian, and prostate cancers due to the additional hormones and
antibiotics found in many dairy products.

Wendy Christien - 07 July 2022 - The Impact of LED lights on our health

Light-emitting diode (LED) lights are gaining popularity due to their efficiency and lower cost.In 2016 already the American Medical Association stated that LED lighting can have a negative impact on human health. LED lights emit short-wave, high-energy light from the blue and violet end of the color spectrum.
This range of light has the most impact on our sleep-wake cycle and the
maintenance of our circadian rhythm. Exposure to blue light at night disrupts melatonin production which can increase sleep disorders, decrease the quality of our sleep and cause insomnia.

Wendy Christien - 30 June 2022 - Natural ways to Boost the Immune System.

The immune system is an interactive network of organs, cells and proteins that protect the body from viruses, bacteria, and other foreign substances
We are continually exposed to organisms that are inhaled, swallowed or that inhabit our skin and mucous membranes.
If our immune systems are strong, our defense mechanisms will be healthier, and we are less likely to be affected by these organisms. But when we have an under- or over-active immune system, we are at a greater risk of developing infections and other health conditions due to lowered immunity.
