The physical body is not just a randomly created, biochemical product of evolution – in fact, it is a highly specialised faithful companion on our individual path of life, whose intelligence and abilities surpass our comprehension by far. It is an essential learning task for us to form a good partnership and collaboration with our bodies. Indeed, through this collaboration we may learn a lot about ourselves, Nature and life itself.
Health is our greatest good, never to be taken for granted. Every day we are exposed to many unhealthy influences; it takes our constant attention to maintain our physical as well as spiritual health.
- Drink enough water (40 ml/kg body weight) throughout the day. Preferably tap water if it is available in a good quality. Add to the water ¼ tsp. natural salt (sea or rock salt, no refined salt/table salt) per litre, or salt to taste, if you are healthy. This helps your body’s cells to absorb water better. Those living in a region low in iodine should be careful to take in enough iodine with their food… more
The enormous self-healing powers of our bodies may only unfold to their full extent with the help of the gifts of Nature, such as water, air, sunlight, but also food, medicinal herbs and nutrients, which are all provided by the four elements. Nature can only provide everything we need for our health in abundance and of the highest quality when it remains intact. Just as we are responsible for our bodies, it is our responsibility to cooperate with Nature, to keep her healthy and, if necessary, to restore natural order.
The medicine of the future lies in prevention.

World No Tobacco Day, proclaimed by the WHO, takes place on May 31st. Before we deal with partly alarming, partly delightful facts about this, we would like to broaden the focus and look at breathing. As with the heartbeat, the special thing about breathing is that, seen from the outside, it simply “does”, the heart […] Read on...
This planet Earth is “custom made” for us humans; it offers everything we need for our survival and our wellbeing. At least, this is the case for what nature provides for us, for it is especially civilisation – cities, traffic, industry and so on – that causes problems for us, for example in the form […] Read on...
Nearly 85% of New Zealanders are smoke-free. But New Zealand is aiming even higher: The New Zealand Government has set the goal that by 2025 fewer than 5% of New Zealanders will be smokers. To this end, on 9th December 2022, Associate Minister of Health Dr Ayesha Verrall launched a new legislation, Auahi Kore Aotearoa […] Read on...
We can no longer imagine our everyday lives without the deployment and use of computers and computer-controlled machines. Application possibilities of these technical devices are becoming more and more diverse
through the use of so-called “Artificial Intelligence”(AI). With this, our dependence on technology is also growing, as is its influence on our communication and education, on decision-making and lifestyle. The application of artificial intelligence holds opportunities, but also risks, and a discussion about the responsible and ethical use of it is needed urgently.
Earth Day provides the occasion to connect with Mother Earth in a calm way and to become aware of what Nature gifts us day in and day out. Nature’s bounty has no limits, and we are still far from having experienced and explored everything.
Almost simultaneously with the worldwide introduction of 5G, the new corona virus has spread to become a global pandemic. A coincidence? No, everything obeys the natural law of cause and effect. Therefore, it is worthwhile to take a closer look at these two “modern evils”.
If there is a lack of movement, something comes to a standstill. This applies not only to the physical level, but also to our thoughts and feelings. Gabriela Baumann talks about the “tree of life” in the human being, and how breathing and posture affect our feelings and general health. Those who do not practice regularly certain activities lose the ability to do so. Your body speaks to you—a guide to listening.
For people, relationships, partnership, family, friendships, bonding, compassion and communication are of such immense importance that we react strongly to a lack or even absence of them. The “symptoms” range from a cold to high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, cancer, mental illness and death. What can we do about loneliness that more and more people are suffering from?
No other place in Europe produces more plastic than Germany. But it is not so difficult to escape the packaging madness. Find out how plastic affects the environment and our health and what you can do to stop the flood of plastic. Because “nobody has to buy plastic, you just have to know the alternatives – and that is not as complicated as many think.”
We live in a much polluted world. Studies and experience show that the body’s own metabolic toxins and waste products as well as toxins absorbed from the environment can cause damage to the body. This is why the detoxification of our body, its organs and tissues is more important than ever today. The liver and the intestines play an especially central role. How do we support these excretory organs so that toxins can be eliminated in a targeted and safe way?
From the promise to build houses that make us healthy, a model has emerged in the last 25 years which changes the construction industry with explosive power. The lecture shows possibilities that open up to us when we build using the gifts of nature and dispense with chemicals. Real wooden houses do not consume energy and are the healthiest for us and the environment. We can look ahead with joy because there is no future but only the potential of the present.
True healing requires promoting and maintaining, whenever possible, a balanced life in body, mind, soul, emotions and feelings. Because of the close relationship between the two species—man and animal—it is therefore equally important that we look after our animal friends the same way we should care for our own lives and health. And to achieve and maintain health in us, man needs to first ‘heal’ himself the holistic way, and then to give our animals the same attention and care. Everything we think, feel and do affects our animals equally, simply because everything in life is connected. The inescapable conclusion therefore is to do everything we possibly can to keep our lives in balance!
Some but not all governments in Western countries are making efforts to regulate the rise of e-cigarettes, especially as more and more studies emerge showing how harmful e-cigarettes are, how addictive they are, how they don’t help smokers quit and how they act as a gateway to cigarettes! But teenagers and young adults especially are still taking to vaping in the false believe they are harmless and not addictive. This Fact Sheet presents a summary of the evidence and presents steps that can be taken to prevent the rise of the electronic cigarettes, the new tobacco.
Do you think electronic cigarettes are healthy? They may look cool and trendy, what with the newer generation pods that look like computer flash drives! Juul, Logic, myBlu, MYLE, PHIX etcetera all look really high tech but are they safe? Juul has been labelled the iPhone of e-cigarettes and its uptake in the United States is in part to its looks. Electronic cigarette use has increased by 78 % in just one year in high schools where 3 million kids now vape; that’s 1-in-5 teenagers! The US Food and Drugs Administration has declared vaping an “epidemic“ and has threatened strong sanctions against e-cigarette companies, especially Juul.
Cannabis, the biological name for the hemp plant, is generally perceived as a “soft drug” with negligible, reversible side effects that are non-addictive and do not pose a threat to others. What is more, cannabis is a potent medicinal herb that is said to work wonders for cancer, multiple sclerosis, pain, epilepsy, sleeping disorders and many other diseases and ailments. And while it is true that cannabis is a precious, versatile plant and definitely has medical potential, it is by no means harmless, in particular for the age group with the highest consumption—the youth—it can be dangerous.
Although addictions can differ considerably, from alcohol and drugs, to internet addiction, one can still find common roots. From a biological as well as a psycho-social point of view, there are factors supporting the development of addiction and those protecting against it. Only an understanding of these factors enables us to prevent addictive disorders or to care adequately for those persons concerned.
Be it gaming, pornography, cigarettes or drugs: Our body always follows the same pattern. By means of case examples from his clinical practice the speaker explains how to prevent addictive disorders and how they can be treated.
More than 6 million deaths per year worldwide are caused by smoking, despite its noxious effects being well-known. This number of preventable deaths worldwide is on the rise daily, as smoking is recklessly promoted in Third World Countries, Asia and is rampant in schools of all levels. In some wealthier nations, tobacco smoking has recently seen a slight decline, but now electronic smoking is positioning itself to justify smoking once again. Electronic cigarettes and heat-not-burn tobacco devices are being promoted to be up to 95% safer than tobacco. Devil in disguise?!
Man is a social being by his very nature, and most of us thrive better when we cultivate friendships. These days, however, with the ‘social media’ frenzy having become so popular worldwide and inundating our lives in a sick way, the Social Media have silently replaced the satisfaction of the need for a sense of belonging—so it appears. But under no circumstances can these virtual relationships replace the direct human contact. All social media interfere profoundly with our lives. Gradually, our natural perception of life is fading and our discernment contaminated, disconnecting the users from the authentic, real life to give precedence to the unnatural, unhealthy virtual reality.
Sugar is just as much an addictive factor as it is food, and has deep-reaching consequences for a healthy life. Many lifestyle diseases, from diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, arteriosclerosis, chronic inflammation, higher susceptibility to infections, to cancer, obesity and metabolic disorders, are associated with the enormous consumption of carbohydrates and sugar. The answer to satisfy a sweet tooth is simple and easy, and is being presented to you here.
Dis-eases and sicknesses (such as cancer) do not occur by accident, fate, or as some even believe as punishment by God. They develop gradually as the result of a natural reaction of our body when our life is no longer in balance physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The cause of dis-harmony in man is often what we call ‘stress’.
Cosmetics, in contrast to technical products, enjoy the privilege of not having to have hazard warning labels. Thus, it is nearly impossible to discern which products are recommended as better for the body and are environmentally friendly. Meanwhile more pollutants are processed than nurturing ingredients, and politics is the happy pal playing its part for big industry.
More and more people take painkillers, sedatives, psychotropic drugs, stimulants and laxatives or whatever they hope is going to give them relief when they are in distress. Often these people get into a vicious cycle of dependency and long-term physical or psychological damage. Case studies show that natural remedies have lasting success, without harming the body.
Have you ever heard of the Banerji protocol? For three generations, the Indian medical family Banerji in Kolkata has treated countless people with standardized protocols developed from Hahnemann‘s homeopathy. Due to the immense number of treatments, effective application recipes for almost all conceivable diseases have emerged over the years.
The human musculoskeletal system is on everyone’s lips as a topic. These problems not only arise due to lifestyle-related postural damage but also because of accidents and falls, especially in childhood – or even through pressure and pull before and during birth. Gonstead Chiropractic helps with a very targeted analysis and great sensitivity applied through the fingertips to start the healing process in the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system again.
Induction hobs have recently become very popular and their sales figures have rapidly increased. But compared to traditional stoves such as electric, gas or wood they have one major disadvantage: The heat required for cooking is generated by strong magnetic fields which cause damage to the health of the cook and change the internal structure of the food being cooked.
Life without the internet: Almost unimaginable for us. But how did digitalisation change our society? Why do more and more people "get lost" on the internet? What effects do social media have on the brain development of our children? Is there a connection between the use of digital media and the rapid expansion of speaking and learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, stress and the increasing propensity to violence of children and adolescents? Learn why action is urgently needed and how these modern technologies can be handled responsibly.
Glyconutrients are the real sugars, healthy ones! What is more: Glyconutrients are absolutely essential for every cell in our organism. Without them there is no accurate communication and no regulated biochemical reactions between the body's cells. Only when communication at the cellular level functions unobstructed is our body capable of delivering its self-healing powers and sustaining its own health.
Music comforts, heals, energises, calms, stimulates. But just as music has the potential to raise up, it can also debase, even destroy. Why does music have such a powerful positive or negative effect? How does the omnipresent acoustic irradiation affect us? Can music be used to manipulate? Is there such a thing as "violent music"? Is the loss of moral values and an increase in crime in any way connected to music? What is music in the first place and how can it be used for the good of the people?
For decades the industry, media and medical fraternity have presented cholesterol and fat as the single cause for arteriosclerosis and thus as the main factor for cardiovascular diseases. Huge profits are harvested with pharmaceutical cholesterol reducers, but the population never gets to know anything about the dangerous side effects of these medications.
For the last 40-50 years we have fought against “bad” cholesterol and “evil” fats. Dr Natasha Campbell McBride explains how usefull and healthy cholesterol is. And how much it is helping with reducing heart attack, preventing arteriosclerosis and even increasing fertility.
Your health depends on your gut! Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride explains the mostly unknown relationship between your gut flora and various illnesses like: Allergies, chronic fatigue, autoimmune problems, autism, asthma, ADHD, ADD, learning disabilities, mental illnesses like depression and many others. Thousands of case studies show how healing becomes possible through common sense and traditional dietary convention.
Brand new findings of brain research - Theoretical basics and backgrounds. Formation of synapses, Hebb connections, neuroplasticity and much more.
There are more cigarette ends in the ocean then plastic bags! What is the real damage of the tabacco industry to the health of the planet. Millions have turned to electronic cigarettes as a saviour from the harm of tobacco. But are e-cigarettes really risk-free?
Already 90% of all baby food and 80% of all processed food is genetically modified. Genetically modified substances can be found in corn and soya seeds, and just as frequently in animal food for dogs, cats, birds, cows and fish, as well as in our own food. The effects of genetically modified organisms have a disastrous potential – ranging from allergies to cancers and even death, causing tremendous damage. They unhinge the entire food chain. We show you what to pay attention to in order to have only natural, organic food on your plate.
Many physical and mental diseases and conditions–from depression to rheumatism and cancer–are directly related to the health of our teeth. We illustrate by way of examples why only natural food is beneficial for the health of our teeth, how chemicals have a detrimental effect and why it is necessary to clean our teeth with fluoride-free toothpaste.
Birth is a God-given process! The caesarean—a troublemaker through and through. In the last 20 years the Caesarian section rate in our civilized world has more than doubled. However, it is the mother's choice of how to give birth that significantly affects the health of the newborn child. In contrast to a natural birth the passing on of vital micro-organisms from mother to child does not occur in a Caesarian section birth. Based on their personal experiences, Harman and Wakeford, accomplished parents both, share with us what happens during a natural birth and how a Caesarian can affect future generations. They tell us what can be done if a Caesarian section is unavoidable!
Commercially available UHT or pasteurised milk, which is severely degenerated by the manufacturing processes, is a strain on the human body and frequently triggers asthma, allergies and osteoporosis. However, raw milk from grass-fed, organic grazing cattle has the opposite effect. Raw milk is an essential, healthy and beneficial food. Recognise the characteristics of the true white refreshment!
