Through the wardrobe and into a new world

Through the wardrobe and into a new world

As one of my favorite authors, C.S. Lewis (he of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe fame) remarked: “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” And so with those words ringing in my ears, off I go to pursue new adventures. This will be my final blog post for NaturalCures – my final day to be precise. A new chapter in my life awaits, a chapter when I hop... »

Going nuts for our favorite snack

Going nuts for our favorite snack

A surprise package arrived in the NatureCures office the other day and we were thrilled to discover it contained one of our favorite snacks – peanut butter. To be precise, it didn’t contain only peanut butter but a selection of other nut and seed butters too – including almond, cashew and pumpkin seed. So, as you can imagine, the team quickly had their spoons at the ready and set... »

Zeolites: The latest buzzword in nutrition

Zeolites: The latest buzzword in nutrition

Zeolites? Sounds like something Superman might use to maintain his special powers, doesn’t it? Well the truth is not that far away! Zeolites is the buzzword in nutrition, according to NaturalCures’ expert Dave Revealy, aka The Food Detective. He acquired this title because of his involvement in helping to detect clients’ food intolerances in addition to an ability to isolate how an individual’s di... »

Snacks don’t have to be unhealthy – in fact here’s one that will lower your cholesterol

Snacks don’t have to be unhealthy – in fact here’s one that will lower your cholesterol

Think snack, and the chances are your imagination will conjure up a packet of potato chips or a do-nut! But snacks don’t have to be unhealthy. In fact the opposite is true – all it takes is a bit of creativity. I went to visit a friend recently and stayed at his lovely home on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, and one of the many delicious treats I was served up, was Baba Ganoush. Now I... »

The breakfast secret you need to know

The breakfast secret you need to know

I don’t know about you but when I wake in the morning, I just can’t face breakfast. Then, a couple of hours later, as I’m sitting at my desk, the hunger pangs begin and the food cravings start! And it doesn’t take long for me to be tempted by something naughty – especially if my colleague has brought in chocolate croissants! Just like you, I know in my heart that brea... »

A natural answer that gets to the root of the problem!

A natural answer that gets to the root of the problem!

I spent the weekend in the beautiful English Lake District  – in the village of Grasmere to be exact. Grasmere is famous for being the one-time home of poet William Wordsworth (A host of golden daffodils) and for its delicious gingerbread. The little gingerbread shop is perched at one end of the village and there’s always a queue to buy this home-made delicacy which has been baked ther... »

Your health, written in the stars

Your health, written in the stars

Diane Cramer is NaturalCures’ very own consulting astrologer, specializing in writing and instructing on medical astrology and nutrition. We were intrigued to find out more about medical astrology (we’re sure you are too) so we pinged over a few questions to New York and Diane has kindly answered them. If you’re a Virgo (like me) you might be intrigued by one of Diane’s ans... »

Gran knows best – she really does!

Gran knows best – she really does!

I’ve had some humdingers of headaches lately but being an advocate of all things natural, I have refrained from hitting the paracetamol. Instead, I have heeded the advice my gran used to give me and turned to the good, old-fashioned remedies. So, I thought I’d share them with you, just in case you’re struck by a headache or a migraine any time soon. If, like me, you are, then don... »

Childhood epilepsy figures drop but more adults are suffering

Childhood epilepsy figures drop but more adults are suffering

Great news in the UK – there’s been a steep decline in the number of children being diagnosed with epilepsy. That’s the kind of thing we like to hear. Figures reveal that the number has dropped dramatically over the past decade – in fact by as much as high, according to a study of medical practitioner-recorded diagnoses. And the same has happened across other European countries and in the U.S. too... »

Spice up your life with this warming nutmeg soup

Spice up your life with this warming nutmeg soup

Christmas may have been and gone, but that doesn’t mean I’ve banished one of my favorite festive spices – nutmeg – to the back of my kitchen cupboards just yet. One of my favourite traditions is making the Christmas cake because it always makes the house smell so lovely and homely as all that rich fruit (and brandy) start to bake in the oven and give off their luscious arom... »
