By 2005, one in five people in the UK were affected by eczema at some point and 31.6 million Americans currently have symptoms of eczema.

How to get rid of Candida: 10 tips  

Written on Sunday, December 13th, 2015

So what is Candida? Well Candida albicans is a fungus, which is a form of yeast. Small amounts of candida happily and healthily live in your mouth and intestines and form part of your healthy gut ecology.

Unfortunately so many of us live a stressful lifestyle without taking proper time to care for ourselves and we may end up overusing medicinal drugs such as antibiotics, developing an over-reliance on sugar and abusing alcohol, which leads to an imbalance in our gut flora. The less gut flora, the more permeable the gut becomes and as it weakens, candida albicans is able to create damaging holes in the intestines, causing “leaky gut”. When this happens undigested food particles and toxic byproducts of Candida, instead of being fully contained in the GI tract, can pass into the bloodstream and cause an IgG immune reaction. An unhealed leaky gut can lead to nutritional deficiencies and compromise our overall well-being.

10 Steps to Resolve Constipation  

Written on Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Did you know you should ideally have two to three complete and satisfying bowel movements a day, one for each main meal, and that they should be inoffensive in odour?  So if you aren’t visiting the toilet regularly, straining or simply leaving a nasty whiff behind and offending your house mates, friends or family, then something’s not right.

Your digestive tract is so long that if you stretched it out vertically it would be more than 5 times the length of an average adult. Just your intestines alone have a surface area the size of a tennis court and your large intestine is 1.5 metres long and 6.4cm in diameter.

So you’re probably wondering how long should it take between eating a meal and passing a stool?
