A babbling brook in the spring forest is clear and clean and is full of oxygen, but deeper in the forest, where the tree branches prevent light reaching the forest … Continue reading
This issue our health detectives look at testing how well this vital system is working. Regular readers will know that from day one we are starting to rust and rot.

This edition our health detectives go with the flow as they explore the importance of one of our main purification systems – the lymphatics.
This issue, our health detectives conclude their investigation of Blood, the river of life, with a look at how perspectives of disease have shaped modern medicine as we know it.
Last issue our Health Detectives discussed the importance of maintaining an alkaline balance in the body to maintain correct blood pH levels. This issue they continue to guide us down the ‘river of life’ and show how Live Blood analysis can provide important information to help us stay healthy.

A lady came to the clinic with tiredness, arthritis, concentration, weight and digestive problems and a weak immune system. She was in bed for 10 hours a night and was still exhausted. She had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), the name given to a variably debilitating disorder generally defined by persistent fatigue unrelated to exertion and not substantially relieved by rest, and accompanied by various symptoms – for a minimum of six months. We are told that the cause of CFS is currently unknown and there is no diagnostic laboratory test or biomarker. As Health Detectives though we always try and find the root causes of these complex conditions.
