12 Tips on How to Deal with Brain Fog


12 tips on dealing with brain fogDo you sometimes wake up with a feeling that you have cotton wool in your brain? I do, quite often. Most people call it “brain fog”. On such days I just simply feel like the life is being sucked out of me, slowly. On days like these, I would give up my breakfast, lunch and dinner to help it go away.


Is it only me who suffers from brain fog?


Apparently, I am not alone (which is somehow good to know). There are many people who go through such days. Apart from lack of clarity, other symptoms of brain fog include:


  • Forgetfulness
  • Lack of concentration
  • Irritability
  • Feeling sleepy
  • Lack of energy
  • Nausea
  • Feeling stressed
  • Sleep issues.

Top 10 Natural Cold & Flu Remedies

It’s February, and we are in the middle of a flu epidemic. Last week I started feeling weak. I think it was caused by a combination of stress, fatigue and poor sleep. When I had the flu last year I had it really bad, with severe bronchitis and months of trying to clear the remains of it. This time I decided to take no chances and started taking precautionary measures early. By the way, I wrote a blog post about natural remedies for the cold season a few years ago which you may also want to take a look at. This is an updated version of it.

8 Simple Tips to Beat Seasonal Depression

I might be one of the people who feels the effects of this aptly named condition which range from feeling tired and uninspired to downright sad. Isn’t it why the abbreviation for it is so telling?

In Search of Inspiration…


In search of inspirationI have been sitting here staring at the title of this blog post not knowing what I am going to say. I know that I want to write about it, but am feeling stuck… It’s as if I need inspiration to write about inspiration! Have you ever felt this way? What have you done about it? And have you done anything but succumb to feeling low and uninspired, ready to give up? Has there been a trigger for it?


It’s the end of the year. December and January are widely believed to be some of the most difficult months for many people. For some people it’s basic things like lack of warmth in the house when it’s cold outside – simply because they have to make a hard choice between eating and keeping warm. For others it’s relationship issues, a business not going well, an unsatisfying job or lack of social interaction.


While December brings excitement in anticipation of Christmas, January is the month when credit card bills start arriving. It is also a month of bitter cold, little sun and endless nights. I have read somewhere that January is the month of divorce and separation, and sadly – a sharp rise in homicide and suicide. It is also a season when depression hits many people. I wrote about it some time ago, and about natural alternatives to antidepressants.

Mineral Healing Workshop Series – Join Me on Facebook Live (Free)

Mineral Healing Free Live Workshops Over the past 4 weeks I have been very busy learning how to stream live on Facebook. The reason for it is that I have been thinking how I could best deliver what I have learned about mineral healing to those of you who want to learn about them. In my case it’s what can share about healing power of minerals – salts, muds, clays, zeolite and diatomaceous earth.


So one day I heard from my mentor Lynn Terry about a run by a lady who has made her name virtually living live streaming. She does it for her own business and teaches others how to do it. I joined her course and decided to do a workshop about minerals and how they help us heal. The result is that I am now working on the 3rd episode and am keen to share it with you.


If you have already picked up the free Mineral Healing e-book from this site you are probably someone who is interested in learning about sals, clays, mud, zeolite and diatomaceous earth and their healing properties. And you may have learned a lot about it already. Or you may have popped into this site because you have been looking for natural options in terms of your own health. Whether you already know something about minerals or are new to the subject, I am sure you will learn something new for yourself from tuining into the workshops.

How Toxins Make Us Fat & What We Can Do about It

How toxins make us fat and what to do about itThe fact that toxins make us fat has been proven many times. Toxicity and obesity are directly connected with each other, which is one of the reasons so many people struggle with weight loss.


The fast growth in the rate of obesity and type II diabetes in the past few decades has prompted scientists to look into possible causes which extend beyond diet and exercise. Various scientific research experiments have been conducted to establish the link, with very interesting results.

Here is some more data which can be used as proof that exposure to environmental toxins is closely linked to obesity and type II diabetes:

“Surviving in a Toxic World” – Book Coming Out Soon

I have been quietly working on my new book – “Surviving in a Toxic World”. I thought I should keep it to myself until the book was published, but then decided to share it with you – both to keep myself on track and also to let you know what was coming. The subject is too important to my heart and too urgent to procrastinate with it. I will explain why it is urgent shortly.

25 Health Benefits of Transdermal Magnesium Therapy

Transdermal Magnesium Therapy - Health BenefitsTransdermal Magnesium Therapy is not a new thing. It has been around for quite some time. Dr Mark Sircus wrote an excellent book on the subject – named “Transdermal Magnesium Therapy”.Dr Carolyn Dean and many other authors have also described in detail benefits and applications of magnesium salts for health and vitality.

Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body. Without it:

  • 300+ body processes would be impossible.
  • Our cells could not produce energy without magnesium.
  • Toxins would not get eliminated. Bones and teeth could not be formed.
  • Our heart and muscles would simply go into spasm.
  • The food we eat could not get converted into energy.

Quick & Easy Home Remedies for Constipation

Are you constipated? Read on…

We all get occasional problems with constipation. Most of us keep it to ourselves, being so embarrassed that we don’t even ask for help when it is needed. Let me address the “embarrassment” factor first though. If we look at our stool movements as a natural process which happens in our body in order to keep us alive, we will be able to see that there is nothing embarrassing about it at all.


This is not to say that we should broadcast it to the world, but taking the “embarrassment” out of the subject means that we can discuss it without going red in the face, at least with health professionals. It is a lot easier to treat constipation when at an early stage – by simply adjusting our water intake and nutrition, than using prescription medicines.

What I Used to Help My Painful Knee

How I cured my painful knee in only four daysA painful knee is not only uncomfortable – it can literally stop us in our tracks – from doing everyday tasks to being unable to walk and exercise. Besides, it can last for weeks, and sometimes much longer.


Having relied on magnesium salts for well over a decade, I am a huge fan of this simple but powerful remedy. Don’t get me wrong – I am not trying to say that magnesium salt is a cure-all miracle. But it’s pretty close I’d say! 🙂


The more I learn about magnesium, the more I am convinced that many problems would not exist if we were all bathing in magnesium baths or even applying magnesium oil on ourselves at least twice a week.

Magnesium Salts for Chronic and Acute Back Pain

Magnesium salts for chronic and acute back painUsing magnesium salts for chronic and acute back pain has been a subject of discussions and research for a long time. There is no arguing that replacing medications with natural treatments and remedies could save many people from sometimes horrible side-effects which come with taking pain-killers, sometimes very strong.


Back pain affects most people at some point in their lives. In many cases, it has simpe reasons, such as a muscle strain (commonly known as a pulled muscle), ligament or tendon injury, or a herniated intervertebral (“slipped”) disk which may press on nearby nerves causing acute pain.


Back pain that lasts for more than 2 or 3 months is considered chronic. Chronic back pain may have a number of causes, most common of which could be an old injury or degenerative disease (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis etc).

20 Tips to Help Prevent Heavy Metal Toxicity

20 Tips to Help Prevent Heavy Metal ToxicityHeavy metal toxicity has been a subject of extensive research for many decades. The industrial progress has brought with itself extensive use of chemicals in all areas of life. It has also intensified the extraction and production of ores, fuel, chemicals, ammunition and many other substances and materials which contain heavy metals. This has in turn created a fertile ground for heavy metal toxicity in all areas of our life.

How Minerals Can Protect Us from Radiation Toxicity

Radiation protection with mineralsThe subject of radiation protection is fast becoming ever more pressing since the Fukushima disaster. The nuclear fallout from the earthquake in Japan is going to be on top of the list for health-conscious people and health professionals for an indefinite period of time. I believe it is important to spread the message of the importance of minerals in protecting us all from radiation, as well as general heavy metal toxicity of the environment we now live in.


It is no secret that the economic progress has led to alarming rises in the number, as well as levels, of heavy metals in the air we breath in, the food we eat, the water we drink. Under normal, healthy environment with nutritionally abundant uncontaminated soil and clean air and water, the body would receive all the nutrients it needs to perform all the cleaning and detoxification procedures efficiently. However, we do not live in an ideal environment, and unfortunately things are not getting any better.

Heart Disease, Stroke & Insomnia – UK Research Findings

Heart disease, stroke, insomnia - how they are connectedHeart disease, stroke and insomnia are directly connected with each other according to the latest reaserch conducted in the UK. Burning the candle at both ends increases your risk of suffering from a stroke or heart disease and dying prematurely, new research suggests.


“If you sleep less than six hours per night and have disturbed sleep you stand a 48 per cent greater chance of developing or dying from heart disease and a 15 per cent greater chance of developing or dying of a stroke,” said Professor Francesco Cappuccio from the University of Warwick Medical School. He also warned: “The trend for late nights and early mornings is actually a ticking time bomb for our health so you need to act now to reduce your risk of developing these life-threatening conditions.”

7 Reasons to Use Far Infrared at Least Once a Week

7 reasons to use far infrared at least once a weekThere are many reasons to use far infrared for better health. First of all, far infrared is not some recent technological invention. It is part of nature. The sun emits far infrared, and so do humans and animals. Far infrared is an invisible spectre of sunlight of between 4-1000 microns – the longest of the infrared range. Only the smallest range is useful to us though – 6-14 microns.  80% of far infrared is produced by the sun.


It is not only the sun that produces far infrared – our body does too. When we are ill, the production of far infrared is diminished, which makes the metabolic rate slow down. We start to feel cold and lack energy as a result. Far infrared supports all the life processes in the cell.

How to Lose Weight Using Magnesium Oil


How to Lose Weight Using Magnesium OilMagnesium is one of the most important minerals in the body, taking part in over 350 body reactions. Without magnesium a cell wouldn’t be able to produce energy, the body wouldn’t be able to make hormones we need to function. Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in metabolising sugars.


Magnesium deficiency leads to stiffness in the muscles and joints, build up of cholesterol plaques in the blood vessels, anxiety, lethargy, depression, poor sleep, water retention, weight gain.  If you want to start your weight loss program, make sure that you take ample amounts of magnesium, because without sufficient magnesium levels your body will not be able to produce enough energy to start shedding the pounds.

Beating the Blues – Natural Alternatives to Antidepressants


Beating the Blues - Natural Alternatives to Antidepressants

Have you noticed how on onset of autumn and winter affects our mood? I notice every year.  With rare sunshine, longer nights and clouds dominating the sky, the mood definitely nosedives. Seasonal changes in the way we feel and think are inevitable in most of us. For some people they are not so noticeable, while others dread the end of summer.


The way our body responds to seasonal changes is quite natural both for humans and animals. The word “hibernation” is being used by us regularly – as a joke. But to many animals it is a reality. This is the way the body and mind are naturally designed to respond to an onset of cold, and it hasn’t changed since pre-historic times. Most of us adapt to these changes, and just carry on. Some suffer from low moods when winter comes. There is even a recognised condition called SAD -Seasonal Affective Disorder. …Continue Reading

Dehydration – Why It Can Be Fatal. Water for Detox.

Water - Most Important Nutrient. Its Role in Detox. Dangers of Dehydration.Water is a basic and most important nutrient for all living organisms and is critical to life. The human body contains 70% of water. Losing even an insignificant percentage of water results in severe dehydration which can be fatal.


Water supports the digestion of food, absorption, transportation and use of nutrients and the elimination of toxic waste from the body. Water inside us is the ocean which is needed to keep us alive. We can live without food much longer than we can without water.


An average human body contains about 70% of water by body weight. A newborn’s body is about 75%, while some elderly and/ or obese people may have as little as 45% of water. Water content in the body is determined by gender, age, fitness and general health. For example, a male body would normally contain less water than a body of a female. Older people lose water from tissues as they age, so they would have less water in their body than a younger person.

12 Reasons You Need To Start Using Magnesium Oil


12 reasons you need to start using magnesium oil

We hear a lot about magnesium, and advice from natural health practitioners about the importance of magnesium supplementation. There are loads of articles about it on the web. However, do we really know why it plays such an important role in maintaining our health – and life? What is it about magnesium that singles it out from other minerals?


In this article I will try to summarise why it is that we need is so much – what it does for us and what happens when we don’t get enough of it. For those of you who don’t know what magnesium oil is – it is in fact a highly saturated magnesium chloride solution, which is a salt, and not an oil, but which feels like an oil when applied on the skin – hence the name.
