What’s good for you and what’s not? There’s so much advice offered from so may different sources it’s difficult to know where to start. Tonight I shared a few tips on where to start on the road to good health.

Find out if you have any food allergies. Besides wheat the other main sources of allergic reactions are corn, soya, sugar, nightshades ( potatoes, tomatoes, aubergines, peppers), yeast eggs and dairy. Dairy products can actually accelerate the rate at which calcium is lost from the body. Just one serving per day of green leafy vegetables can cut the risk of hip fracture in half. Find out if you have a leaky gut. If the walls of the large  intestine excessively permeable , allowing larger food molecules through, this will reduce food absorption and lead to allergic symptoms.

Make sure you’re getting enough vitamin D. About a third of the population is vitamin D deficient. This vitamin offers protection against most cancers and heart disease and can boost the immune system. Your body produces it naturally when exposed to sunlight, or, alternatively you can buy supplements.

Cook with electric if possible. Nitrogen dioxide which is released from gas cookers and gas and oil boilers stays concentrated in the home. It is implicated in asthma, arthritis and various allergies.

Breathe through your nose. Breathing incorrectly can contribute to asthma and various adhd disorders.

Make sure you sleep in the dark. Too much light at night interrupts our production of melatonin, the hormone that regulates our sleep wake cycle. Working at night and sleeping in a room that’s too bright have been linked to depression and an increased risk of cancer.

So just a few ideas to help improve your health.
