George Bush Acidic? Heavens to Betsy No!

Graham, our general manager, contributes to a health blog in the US. He posts to it just like this blog, and he includes many articles we have on file here in Australia. One such article was written by me about acidic or alkaline 'personalities' pointing out that calm people are usually more alkaline, and aggressive people more acidic. The first example of an acidic personality I suggested was the late Saddam Hussein. The second example was of an alkaline type; the Dalai Lama. Now... up until … Read more…

Water disinfection Byproducts: what does that mean?

pH Food Question: How to measure pH in a recipe.

I received an interesting question today: Hi Ian, We are developing an easy tool for people to determine pH levels of food and recipes and would really like to speak with you about it. I spoke with Leon Bartlett from your office and he kindly forwarded me the Alkaline Defence Program pdf which I have begun reading. On the third page of the pdf, you mention that "it isn't the ratio of the acid/alkaline minerals in our food" that helps create our acid/alkaline balance. If this is the case, then … Read more…

Magnesium. Are you getting enough?

When I take a moment to look at what magnesium does, it reminds me once again of the complexity and brilliance of the human body. And like all great and complex machines, it reminds me of the importance of 'tuning' it and giving it what it needs to carry out all those mindboggling daily tasks that support another day in our life. Magnesium is the central element in chlorophyll and the basis of early life on the planet. It’s been around for ages and I think we can safely say that it’s here to … Read more…

A robot in my bedroom?

Why is it always the Japanese who invent these things? Last week I saw a Japanese attempt at a robotic guide dog. This week a robot to help dress old folks. Not in my lifetime!   The mind boggles at the vision of me as an an eighty year old getting out of bed, being greeted by a synthetic voice and manhandles into a Lowes' tracksuit. … Read more…

Hospital care….

I have been staying with my sister and brother-in-law in Melbourne this week after flying down to see Phil, my 84 year-old brother-in-law and a leading influence in my life. Phil is and always has been a 'can-do' man, running a wonderful farm, caravan park and building business. Such a good man.. it's a blow to see him fighting his particular form of cancer that causes his red blood cells to misbehave and for him to retain fluid, causing his pacemaker heart to work dangerously hard. Phil is in … Read more…

Alzheimers’: the new market for Big Pharma

I'm copying a pasting an article by Rob Verkerk, president of Alliance for Natural Health here today. It's a typical story of vested interest, sub-prime research and ultimately, deprivation of the public of quality healthcare. It affected me because I'm a potential sufferer of Alzheimers' using a natural product to retain my faculties. My video on YouTube has attracted a tremendous response.. and I'd dread the possibility that the powers that be would choose to deprive me of my coconut oil. "The … Read more…
