0 Comments 21 May 2016

Tweet My “before” lifestyle changes picture  Citations always at bottom of post Mast cells are key players in immune system generated inflammation. You know, the stuff that heals you when you’re sick, but makes you sick if inflammation happens when you’re not.

Savoury Waffles with Zucchini Chutney & Asparagus

TweetThis is one of my favourite lunch recipes, taken from my latest book Man Food.

Tweet UPDATE: math is not my strong point so my apologies. I have changed the first graph to reflect verbatim the histamine reduction.

I’m not anti-pharma, I’m on a medication vacation

0 Comments 02 April 2016

Tweet I was recently forced to pin this post to a Facebook group: “PHARMACEUTICAL SHAMING”: demonising pharmaceuticals and scaring people into thinking they will not heal if taking medications. While we are focused on natural healing via diet and other methods in this group, please refrain from the “pharmaceutical shaming” of folks taking prescribed medications. […]
