Protein Powder: All That is Required to Grow in the Gym?

This is just a quick note of advice, not an article. I was speaking to a personal trainer friend the other day and he told me how one of his clients thought that taking protein powder alone (i.e. without a real training regime + diet) would significantly change his body (aesthetically) and it was some…

Fruits: with or without a meal?

Whether one should combine eating fruit with their main meal is a topic that has always left me asking more and more questions. Many nutritionists do not comment on this subject and if they do, it is limited. From a naturopathic perspective, it is a “no” to combine fruits with food. It is claimed that…

Wash Your Hands PLEASE!

A friend sent me this short article: The “hand washing police” say more guys need to step up to the sink. The researchers who spy on people in public restrooms report one-third of men didn’t bother to wash after using the bathroom, compared with 12 percent of women. The latest study was based on observations…

Antibiotics: Reversing the Damage

Why do doctors give out antibiotics like oxygen? Ok that was a bit harsh, however being prescribed antibiotics is becoming easier and more worrying. Is it something to do with the money? For those who don’t know what antibiotics are: n. A substance, such as penicillin or streptomycin, produced by or derived from certain fungi,…

Fasting: to exercise or not to exercise?

Fasting is a test of patience and willpower. It takes effort and determination both physically and mentally. Implementing a training regime without due planning and consideration, during the fast, can be somewhat tricky (ok “regime” sounds a bit harsh, “plan” sounds less aggressive – happy ). For those of you who want to exercise during…

Ramadan: A Nutrition Solution?

The blessed month of Ramadan is upon us again. I was hoping to write this article at least a week before the beginning of this auspicious month, unfortunately this was not the case due to circumstances beyond my control. Insha’Allah, the information presented below will be some what of an eye-opener for many, for others…

Milk: response(s)?

Well well well, look what an avid reader sent me today (click on the image below): If the the milk used in the study was raw, from pasture-fed cows and not homogenised or pasteurised, then the claims are justifiable. If this is the case, then the milk described in the article is one of the…

Sugar Beverages: Drinks of Mass Destruction?

I sit there sometimes, watching how people guzzle down sugar-laden drinks with their food, and can’t help but remember how I used to be one of them. Many of these people are my friends (you know who you are!), they don’t seem to listen to me, maybe this article shall be an eye-opener.Just about everyone…

Milk: Good or Bad?

What is milk? You’d expect this to be a rhetorical question, however to give this article any justice I thought it would be important to give a brief definition (though nearly every human being has tasted milk at least once in their lifetime, I think.) Milk is an opaque liquid that is produced by cows….
