In this chapter of our 7 step health plan our health detectives move into the exercise zone. We are designed to move, not to sit in front of a TV, computer or playstation all day. Kids often run around all day, play and explore whenever they can, and although some of the older ones need to be kicked of their smartphones and tablets, we can guarantee that they will be happier in the long run if they do more physical movement. It is actually essential … Continue reading

In step 1 of our 7 Step Action Plan for a Healthier Life we looked at hydration in some detail. As an extra addition to this step our health detectives look at the essential role of salt, that goes together with water as one of the absolutely basics in health.
Salt is the ‘ion’ of life in which all energy is transported. Without salt there is no life. No water, no salt, no life – it is that simple. On the other hand, we hear … Continue reading
