combined with other fruits and vegetables when my Dad was growing it in his back garden.

This is the ideal regular Read more [...]
Here’s a Pick-me-up Juice with a vengeance. Make sure you choose the ripest possible tomatoes, as that’s when they’re at their most nutritious. Most people don’t realise that tomatoes are a member of the Solenaceae family, which includes potatoes, peppers and aubergines; they’re all relatives of the nightshade. For this reason, this juice is not ideal Read more [...]
In this recipe, the tropical fruits alone would make a truly wonderful Pick-me-up Juice, but once you add guarana, you’ll be buzzing. The Rain Forest Indians in Brazil discovered guarana, and I’ve learned what a wonderful energy-giver this strange berry can be. Guarana isn’t a quick shot in the arm and a let-down half an hour later; it supplies is a slow release Read more [...]

In Victorian times, anti-alcohol Read more [...]
The human body should survive in an active, healthy state for 120 years, but as most of us know, it rarely does. However, in parts of the world where longevity is taken for granted – by the Hunza tribesmen in the Himalayas, the Lamas of Tibet, the Fakirs of India – diets are rich in nuts
, berries, fruits and fermented milk products. Today we all have access to the concentrated Read more [...]
Even in the best-ordered lives there are times when hauling yourself out of bed requires a superhuman effort. There are days where energy seems so lacking that the thought of getting dressed and dragging yourself to work is enough to bring on an instant attack of doom and gloom. I call this TTFN (Total but Temporary Fatigue Neurosis), and 75 per cent of the population say they Read more [...]
‘Properly speaking, there are no aphrodisiacs capable of endowing those blind to life with sight,' said Napoleon’s chef, Kurmonsky. ‘But for those with poor eyesight in this matter, there are substances which can act as magnifying lenses.'
