SEE! LOW CARB HIGH FAT DIET -
COULD IT IMPROVE CANCER OUTCOMES?
 

 

"It is my hope that one day people will truly learn how to make food their medicine,"  says Sally-Ann Creed. 

  

 

There seems to be a cancer pandemic now – never before have there been so many people with cancer on the globe. With the incidence of cancer rising, the World Cancer Research Fund International has results for up to 2012, the latest data available, and they state, “There were an estimated 14.1 million cancer cases around the world in 2012, of these 7.4 million cases were in men and 6.7 million in women. This number is expected to increase to 24 million by 2035.”

SEE! LCHF Diet

 

Sally-Ann Creed charts the way

 

 

We have all known for some time that the food pyramid has changed considerably. We are familiar with the egg story and now we need to familiarise ourselves with the world of carbs and how the tables have turned. Nutritional Therapist Sally-Ann Creed recently completed her co-operative venture with Professor Tim Noakes, entrepid traveller David Grier, the man with the vision for ‘Miles for Smiles’ who, together with the recipe developer Jonno Proudfoot, are the smoooth hands behind the book The Real Meal Revolution, which make this low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diet way of eating a delight.

HEALTH! COCONUT OIL AND ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

  

By Sally-Ann Creed

 

 

Is it just me or does it seem that this horrid disease is relentlessly taking more and more of our elderly loved ones captive, and even the not so elderly ones? As we stand by helplessly, we’re told nothing can help stop this dread disease, so we allow our beloved family members to be drugged and eventually left to stare into space living out their days in a world where they remember nobody, and cannot do anything but wait for death. Is that any way to leave a loved one if there is just maybe, something we can do to help?

HEALTH! RED MEAT - GOOD OR BAD?

 

By Sally-Ann Creed

 

 

Sally-Ann Creed explains, "There’s quite a debate raging right now – and Prof Tim Noakes has leapt into the fray like a knight in shining armour for ‘the cause’. Anyone following his story will tell you he has dumped the carbs and gone gung-ho on the protein and fat – and he’s a changed, healthier man for it! Well done, Tim!! Meat and healthy fats are NOT the enemy!

HEALTH! CANCER - TIME TO REFLECT

 

By Sally-Ann Creed

 

Over the years Sally-Ann has found that she is dealing with many more patients who are struggling with cancer. Her advice to them is from the beginning take time to think, regain a sense of calm and control and speak to your family.

 

"Consider that every single food is like a letter," suggests Sally-Ann, "it carries a message to the cells - and you want that message to be good news, so make sure that 90% of what you eat is delivering that good news to your cells, this is the way to remain in tip top shape."
