Feature article All You Need to Know About Fasting Fasting has been used for millennia for the improvement of physical, mental, and spiritual health but the benefits have largely been researched only in the past few decades. In this article, Cliff Harvey PhD thoroughly reviews the scientific evidence to help you answer the question “should I fast for health and performance?” Read the article here Articles How to fast Find out answers to the most common fasting questions such as: How long should I fast?When should I fast?What ‘type’ of fasting should I do?How can I adapt fasting to suit me and my goals? Read the article here In the Literature Fasting, inflammation, and autophagy A recent study was conducted in both humans and animals to identify the mechanisms by which fasting helps to reduce and modify inflammation. In this article, Cliff Harvey PhD explains the study and its implications for health. Read the article here Members download the full review below:

Find out how to modify fasting timing and length to meet your goals.
Fasting has been used for physical, mental, and spiritual health for millennia but it has only recently undergone more scientific scrutiny. Find out in the BIG review, what the science has to say about the benefits of fasting.
Protein is the base of a nutritious meal, and smoothies make an easy, quick and nutritious option.
Lunch can be the most difficult meal to ‘get right’ consistently.
In the modern WORLD, we eat while distracted—working, watching television—even though this is far from ideal for digestion and absorption of nutrients, and for reducing stress.
Both Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and lemon juice are time-honoured naturopathic remedies to promote digestion and improve the natural processes of detoxification in the liver.
Issue 6 | Volume 1 | November 2019 In this issue: This month, we have a massive review of the evidence-backed complementary treatments for candida overgrowth. Find out what candida is, how it can progress to candidiasis, and what natural treatments have shown evidence for its treatment. We also have some great articles on protein and sugar cravings, high-fat diets and the brain, and the effects of omega-3 fats on gut-health. Feature article All You Need to Know About Treating Candida, Naturally Candida is poorly understood and candida overgrowth can be over-diagnosed in alternative health circles…on the other hand, it can be a major problem, especially for people with immune dysfunction and can result in symptoms ranging from annoying to life-threatening. In this article, Cliff Harvey PhD delves into the research to find the evidence for various natural treatment strategies for candida, from diet through to herbal medicine, and supplementation. Read the article here Articles Does Protein Reduce Sugar Cravings It’s commonly suggested that increased protein in the diet reduces cravings. But does this claim stack up? So, does increasing protein intake reduce cravings, especially for sugar? Find out in this month’s article. Read the article here Can Omega-3 Fats Treat Dysbiosis? What does the evidence say about the use of omega-3 fats, particularly those from fish oil, for gut-health? Do omega-3 fats improve gut-health by, in turn, improving the gut microbiome? Read the article here In the Literature Do High-Fat Diets Increase Inflammation in the Brain? There is debate…
Mouse evidence suggests that high fat diets cause inflammation in the brain and results in damage to the nervous system. Can these results be translated to humans?
It’s commonly accepted that higher protein intakes reduce cravings for sugar. But is that idea supported by the evidence?
Omega-3 fish oil supplements may help to modify the gut biome and improve gut health. In this article, Cliff delves into the research to answer the question ‘can omega-3 fats treat dysbiosis?’
Candida overgrowth can affect many people, resulting in mild to severe symptoms. In this review, Cliff summarises the evidence-based natural treatments available.
The question often arises “How much should I eat”, and without overcomplicating the issue, the answer simply is “eat until you’re full!” And by ‘full’ I don’t mean the old idea, that you’ve probably heard time and time again of being ‘moderately full’.
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE that eating frequently and forcing yourself to eat throughout the day offers any benefits.
