Take a break: procrastination found to bolster productivity

While the act of procrastination is viewed by many as something highly unacceptable, a trait of the lazy and easily-bored in society, research shows that it may actually lead to increased productivity.


Professor and procrastination expert Piers Steel, Ph.D, gathered 24 participants and divided them in two groups in an effort to assess whether delaying tasks helped or hindered their completion.

If you have cancer, then most of these foods should

be included in your daily


A new scientific review identifies 25 of the top foods and herbs which kill the cancer stem cells at the root cause of cancer malignancy.


And top of the list is Green Tea!


The primary reason why conventional chemotherapy and also  radiotherapy have failed to produce any significant improvements in cancer survival rates is because cancer stem cells are resistant to these interventions. In fact, chemotherapy and especially radiation are both capable of increasing the number and virulence of these cells in a tumour, while at the same time having the well known side effect of further damaging the patient's immune system. the full article....



My first pint of the day, delivered direct to my microbes 

Everybody's different and we all need to approach and deal with our daily dietary needs in our own uniquely different way.


This is my Daily Raw Vegetable Rocket

I use a juice extractor with a single auger, like those found in a millstone for best results, as a blender will reduce the quality of  the enzymes in raw foods with its centrifugal force.

Is Functional Medicine Here to Stay?

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.


Not only is Functional Medicine here to stay, it is poised to be the centerpiece in one of the most significant shifts in the health and medical paradigm in the past one hundred years.  For anyone who has been paying attention, there has been a virtual war going on between Conventional/Allopathic Medicine and Functional/Natural Medicine since the early 1900s.  In fact, this virtual war often became a real war when the medical establishment would attack and try to discredit chiropractors, naturopaths, homeopathy practitioners and those who made or distributed nutritional supplements. more...


The Key to Weight Loss Is Diet Quality, Not Quantity, a New Study Finds

Anyone who has ever been on a diet knows that the standard prescription for weight loss is to reduce the amount of calories you consume.


But a new study, published in JAMA, may turn that advice on its head. It found that people who cut back on added sugar, refined grains and highly processed foods while concentrating on eating plenty of vegetables and whole foods — without worrying about counting calories or limiting portion sizes — lost significant amounts of weight over the course of a year.


The strategy worked for people whether they followed diets that were mostly low in fat or mostly low in carbohydrates. And their success did not appear to be influenced by their genetics or their insulin-response to carbohydrates, a finding that casts doubt on the increasingly popular idea that different diets should be recommended to people based on their DNA makeup or on their tolerance for carbs or fat.


The research lends strong support to the notion that diet quality, not quantity, is what helps people lose and manage their weight most easily in the long run. It also suggests that health authorities should shift away from telling the public to obsess over calories and instead encourage Americans to avoid processed foods that are made with refined starches and added sugar, like bagels, white bread, refined flour and sugary snacks and beverages, said Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, a cardiologist and dean of the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. more...

There is much more to be said about Jordan B Peterson. He is a strange mixture of theologian, psychologist, conservative, liberal, wit and lay preacher. He’s a powerful advocate of the scientific method who is not a materialist. He can go from cuddly to razor sharp in a beat. His primary concern, however, which underpins nearly everything about him, is the defence of the individual against groupthink, whether on the right or the left.


“Your group identity is not your cardinal feature. That’s the great discovery of the west. That’s why the west is right. And I mean that unconditionally. The west is the only place in the world that has ever figured out that the individual is sovereign. And that’s an impossible thing to figure out. It’s amazing that we managed it. And it’s the key to everything that we’ve ever done right.”


Peterson’s 12 rules


Rule 1 Stand up straight with your shoulders back


Rule 2 Treat yourself like you would someone you are responsible for helping


Rule 3 Make friends with people who want the best for you


Rule 4 Compare yourself with who you were yesterday, not with who someone else is today


Rule 5 Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them


Rule 6 Set your house in perfect order before you criticise the world


Rule 7 Pursue what is meaningful (not what is expedient)


Rule 8 Tell the truth – or, at least, don’t lie


Rule 9 Assume that the person you are listening to might know something you don’t


Rule 10 Be precise in your speech


Rule 11 Do not bother children when they are skate-boarding


Rule 12 Pet a cat when you encounter one on the street

‘The pursuit of happiness is a pointless goal’

Stop Thinking  

Start Breathing and    Reduce Stress,


Can the simple act of consciously controlling the way in which you breathe, help you to manage your own thought processes?


Yes - its called conscious breathing. And its easy to do.


Does this mean that this can be done anywhere,

at any time, in any space, during ordinary everyday

activities, like driving a car, sitting on a train,

plane or bus, walking, at your desk working, watching TV

or a movie or on a mobile chat?

The answer is an unequivocal yes.


And the benefits from regularly doing this are immense.

These three are well documented:

Induces calm - raises levels of concentration  and improves clarity of thought.


Isn’t this just a bit like meditation but without all the - you know - hassle - and that it can be done anywhere, in your own time and in ordinary everyday clothes?

Affirmative. ...
