As a holistic nutritionist I've come to see that many health issues (particularly stress) need to be tackled at a political levegl, rather than in a clinical setting. From both a health and moral perspective, I'm a strong advocate of Universal Basic Income. I would like to everyone over 18 eventually receive an unconditional income high enough to pay for a satisfactory standard of living. Additional forms of income (after tax) will pay for convenience and ambition. I believe a UBI will eventually pay for itself by reduced health costs, less crime, stronger relationships, and indeed increased productivity. Think of it as an investment not an expense!

Are you looking for assistance to manage a known health defect with diet & lifestyle changes, or just looking for ways to improve overall health?

I'm an Invercargill based Nutritionist, and passionate about supporting you towards better health.

9 tips to boost your energy — naturally - Harvard Health

[07/03/20]   If you're trying to loose weight, your focus should be to build muscle rather than burn fat.

There are two reasons for this:

1) Protein synthesis to build muscle requires energy, which means a faster metabolism while resting. The best way to achieve this is to challenge muscle groups you don't normally use.

2) Muscle stores excess carbohydrates as glycogen. Increased muscle mass means increased glycogen storage capacity.

Vitamin D and Immunity, Lots of Evidence

This is an evidence based source from a nurse with a PhaD (hence a nurse with the doctor title). I deem Dr Campbell to be a trustworthy source at this stage.

While the scientific methodology has been well executed, there is by no means conclusive proof that Vitamin D is a cure or effective treatment for Covid 19. It is highly likely that sufficient Vitamin D intake does play an important role in minimising the risks of acute respiratory infection.

If you choose to supplement Vitamin D3 as a precautionary measure, don't let it tempt you to relax the precautionary measures set out by the government and medical experts.

[06/18/19]   We are pumping Carbon Dioxide into Earth’s atmosphere at increasingly higher rates than ever. The atmosphere is warming up, polar icecaps are melting, and sea levels are rising. We are now seeing droughts, famines, flooding, and extreme whether events claiming lives more frequently. If we don’t act NOW this trend will continue to the point of many species facing extinction including the human race. It will happen much sooner than you think. We have no option but to act now! You would think that we’ve made progress to bring down CO2 emissions in the last two decades with technological advancements. With heat pumps, LED lighting, solar panels, wind turbines, electric vehicles, and more fuel efficient internal combustion vehicles, we still haven’t managed to reduce our emissions, in fact they are still trending upwards. Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying we shouldn’t be making use of those things, but there’s clearly much more we need to be doing and we can’t pin our hopes on technological advancement.
The climate strike movement began with a Swedish High School Girl called “Greta Thunberg.” Initially she began by wagging school every Friday to engage in a solo protest outside the Sweden Parliament. This lead to a worldwide movement of school kids striking for the climate on various scheduled Fridays. Greta has scheduled further strike action for the 20th and 27th of Semptember, but this time she is calling upon the adults to strike from work to advance this cause.

Now many people ask “Why don’t those kids protest in the weekend?” The reason for protesting on a school day isn’t just for the rebellion factor to advance the cause, it’s also a symbolic reminder that there’s no point being educated for a future that doesn’t exist. More importantly if workers protest on a working day, we can learn a few things about adapting for a future without an industrialised economy as we know it. Sure enough there will be repercussions for a loss of productivity on those two Fridays, but if we maintain the status quo the repercussions will be far greater.

Now is time to think about where we’re going with the future of work, the future of play, the future of transport, and the future of politics. In order to make this work, we need to start having serious conversations about how we’re going to overhaul tax and income distribution. For a cleaner and greener economy we need to think about the future of work and perhaps even reinvent the definition of work. For many this is an inconvenient truth, and many people are generally uncomfortable talking about politics (especially taxation), but that’s the only way we can bring about real change.

We need to phase out fossil fuel almost completely by 2040, but what sacrifices are you personally willing to make to get there? Do these sacrifices have any economic benefit to you personally in a fast paced living world where we only think about our immediate needs? For me personally I’m blessed that I can get to my workplace on a pushbike in 5 minutes, saving on costs and doing my small bit to reduce my carbon footprint. I recently decided to do some calculations to see if it actually does have any real economic benefit for me. When I drive to work my fuel consumption averages about 12.L/100km. The commute is approximately 2km. Premium grade petrol costs me about $2.50/L. Let’s consider being sustainable as a form of work, so I’m doing 5 minutes of work when I cycle to work. So when you do the maths I’m getting an imputed income of $7.20/h for sacrificing the car. Each hour of cycling would be better spent labouring so I could get at least $17.70 (minimum wage) instead of $7.20/h, so it doesn’t really make any sense for me economically to avoid using my car. I think I’ve just proven my point that we aren’t paying enough tax for fuel.

Do you wonder why growing vegetable gardens is so unpopular in this age of fast paced living. It’s because the imputed income from saving money at the supermarket is less than the minimum wage. One hour of planting, harvesting, and maintaining a vegetable garden will not save you $17.70 an hour, so again the time spent in the garden would actually be better spent sweeping floors in a factory.

In a nutshell we need to phase out fossil fuels, phase out plastic wastes, reduce our quantity of livestock, and increase forestation above all else. It’s up to you to decide how we should run society respectively, and how we should implement the transition. People are hesitant to act because we tend to be preoccupied with our own day to day problems that seem more at home, but we must remember that the type of changes for a greener economy will also benefit us as individuals with immediate effect. To every school, college, workplace, faith centre, family, and household; let’s start having these conversations.

Brewer's Yeast: Benefits, Side Effects, and More

B vitamins are water soluble and therefore constantly need replenished as the body doesn't store them.

B vitamins are needed for energy, cell metabolism, nerve & brain function, and numerous other functions.

Brewers yeast is an excellent whole food alternative to supplementation. I personally like to add it into mashed potato and porridge.

[12/12/17]   A few months ago I had to analyse the ingredients of a particular vitamin B&C supplement. First thing is first: Vitamin C and B complex are water soluble vitamins, which means they absorbed into the blood and excreted on a regular basis. Therefore it’s hugely important to constantly replenish these nutrients from food sources on a regular basis throughout the day. Vitamins C and B complex both have similar functions for cellular growth and repair. When the body is stressed it depletes these vitamins rapidly and therefore they should be taken to assist the body’s stress response. Keep in mind these nutrients may be destroyed by excess sugar, caffeine, alcohol, to***co and medications. B vitamins are best sourced from vegemite, mushrooms, organ meats, fish, eggs, and whole grains. Vitamin C is best sourced from fruits and vegetables, and preferably from all colour varieties.

I also feel the need to discuss a couple of nutrients in which all New Zealanders are pretty much deficient by default. We aren’t getting 10 minutes of daily sun exposure in short sleeves and shorts, and are therefore deficient in vitamin D. It’s necessary for almost everyone in NZ to be supplementing vitamin D3 during the winter months. Vitamin D is needed for strong muscles and bones, immunity, and may also treat seasonal depression.

Also here in NZ our soil is selenium deficient. In my opinion the best way to supplement selenium is to eat 2-3 Brazil nuts on a daily basis. Selenium helps re**rd aging and degenerative diseases. It is also needed for synthesis of thyroid, stress, and s*x hormones.

[11/26/17]   According to Dr Walter C. Willet, M.D. of the Harvard Medical School:

After non-smoking the best thing you can do for your health is to keep your body weight within healthy range. This is more important than getting the right amount of fats, carbs, and antioxidants.
