“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.

My Low Carb Nutrition – Gains & Losses So Far

Low carb nutritionIn one of my previous posts about low carb nutrition, I shared concerns about not losing weight.  Having read Dr Mercola’s articles, I had come to a conclusion that I was eating too much protein.

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.

Which Magnesium Supplement Is Best?

 

Best magnesium suppelmentsWith so much choice available both online and in shops, people often ask themselves a question: which magnesium supplement supplement is best? Shall I use salts or tablets? Which salt shall I use for baths and other skin applications? It is impossible to give the answer which suits everyone, for a simple reason that everyone’s situation is different. So we can take a look at various forms of magnesium, and decision will have to be taken in each particular case based on individual circumstances.
