PMT? Try a salad

Pre menstrual tension (PMT) – it’s something many women experience around that dreaded time of the month.  And you may have tried everything to combat its symptoms, which can include everything from feeling bloated, to pain in the abdomen, changes to your skin and hair, headaches and mood swings.

White sugar and your eyesight: Why change to other sweeteners

White sugar and your eyesight: Why change to other sweeteners

I just finished reading ‘Beekeeping for Dummies’; like obviously many other (crazy?) folk, I am excited by the idea of ‘growing’ and harvesting my own honey. For all of my life, ‘alternative’ sweeteners have been the norm, due to my mother’s interest in nutritional health and good eyesight. Honey is the main sweetener we use, being able to find local fresh and raw honey out here in the countryside... »

Getting Off The Diet Roller Coaster

Getting Off The Diet Roller Coaster

In my work as a woman-centred psychotherapist, I have found that the habit of dieting is at the root of all women’s dysfunctional relationships with eating.  The fact is that we live in a society that is obsessed with thinness and surveys have found that one out of every two women are on a diet and that the majority of women fear becoming fat more than they fear dying. Also, diets simply don’t wor... »

All You Have to Do Is Practice

All You Have to Do Is Practice

Do you want to be the absolute best version of yourself that you can be?  I know I do.  I do it the holistic way – I lay down my yoga mat. It is easy to find an excuse NOT to practice. You stayed late at work. You have to make dinner. You’re simply TIRED! But your practice is your way through which you can better yourself, and it’s just as important as all the other things on you... »

Mums-to-be advised to cut out coffee

Mums-to-be advised to cut out coffee

Coffee drinker? New research suggests mums-to-be who drink one or two mugs a day risk having an underweight baby. It’s been revealed that coffee may also make pregnancy last longer, too – but only by a matter of hours. The research follows a study which detailed records of almost 60,000 pregnancies in a 10-year period in Norway. Including information about how often the women had foods containing ... »

Got hiccups? Time for a bear hug

Got hiccups? Time for a bear hug

Time to grab someone you care about and give them a big old bear hug. Why? In a recent article, a retired British teacher explained how he ‘cured’ a 10-day bout of hiccups with a simple cuddle or two. Seventy-two-year-old Ben Lamberton hiccupped every 15 seconds day and night for over a week. Ben had tried drinking water and holding his breath, but these old remedies did nothing. Often... »

Something smells fishy. Or does it?

Something smells fishy. Or does it?

Nearly 60 per cent of the tuna Americans consume is not really tuna, as revealed in one of the largest seafood fraud investigations recently. If that’s not enough, most of the fake tuna has been found to be a fish that brings on gastrointestinal problems. Collecting more than 1,200 samples from over 600 retail outlets in 21 US states from 2010 to 2010, the non-profit ocean protection group O... »

Tribute to Dr Hyman J. Roberts – Father of the Anti-Aspartame Movement

We’ve been busy working on an in-depth, no-holds-barred special report into aspartame, here at NaturalCures, and we were sad to hear that one of the anti-aspartame campaigners who features heavily in the report, Dr Hyman J. Roberts has passed away. Here, one of our regular contributors, Dr Betty Martini, the founder of the worldwide volunteer force, Mission Possible World Health Internationa... »
