Cancer – The Enemy Within

“I am sorry to inform you, your test results indicate that you have cancer”. I cannot even imagine what goes through an individual’s mind, hearing these devastating words and yet thausands of people around the world hear those words daily. Like all illnesses, whether they are mental or physical in nature, cancer too is on the

Are you clinging to your thoughts and believes?

Lately I’ve been dealing with a fair amount of people that cling to what they believe in and what they perceive to be true. They defend those beliefs with such fierceness that, any attempt to make them see things in a different light, is futile. From an early age we become programmed with certain belief

Who would you be without your story?

Over the last few days I’ve met some wonderful people. Wonderful, but in many ways troubled and hurt. For the most, they represent a large part of humanity.  Being bashed around by life is pretty much an element of the human experience. It is how we deal with these experiences though that defines us and

The Food and Drug Administration is a Big Pharma puppet

There are so many things we are misinformed about and even if you do not want to believe me, at least inform yourself. Information is but a mouse click away these days. Develop and enquiring mind –ask questions and teach your children to do so. All too many of us are following mainstream media, which

Staying sane in a world gone mad

Somali’s are dying of hunger, hydraulic fracturing (fracking), seal pups clubbed to death in Namibia, Rhino’s massacred for their horns …there is a seemingly endless list of this insanity happening, while we sit and watch. I suppose as long as it does not affect our immediate surroundings, why should we care, right? Wrong! In this

Our apathetic attitude will be our downfall

Although this has happened a while ago I cannot get this incident out of my mind. To me, it clearly illustrated the current human “could not care less” condition. My husband and I were standing at the supermarket cash register, when I pointed to the “Coke Zero” the gentleman in front of us was in

The Fine art of Branding a Disease

Take some time and think about the fact that, pharmaceutical companies spend twice as much on marketing than on research. In part these costs often go toward hiring expensive PR firms, celebrity spokespeople, physicians and academics to promote their products. As CNN reported, in order to market its antidepressant Paxil, GlaxoSmithKline hired a PR firm

From the Farm to the Fridge

In this post I really want to address my previous post, “Nutrition is not a science – we made it one”. For the vegetarians amongst you, it is a fact that our ancestors were predominantly meat eaters; in fact ancient Eskimos had a 100% meat/fat diet. Agriculture only actualised 10 000 to 20 000 years ago, which,

Nutrition is not a science – we made it one

I’m sure that if you stumbled onto the heal-the-cause website and you are reading my blog, you are someone that is interested in heath and being healthy. First and foremost we want to give our bodies the right fuel, but what is that? The internet is such a wonderful source of information, but it can

Why heal the cause-regain the balance?

This is my first entry on my very own blog! I am both proud and somewhat anxious about this new path that I have chosen. The Heal the Cause website has taken a little time to construct, which gives me some time to think about my first entry. For some reason I feel that I
