Most of us already understand that fighting a cold or flu is best done by drinking lots of fluids and getting plenty of rest. Vitamin C is another basic requirement of staying healthy. Even though you might know how to stay healthy, when you get sick your major concern is getting better quickly. This is one of the reasons that so many people choose drugs over natural remedies. These medications can sooth cold and flu symptoms fairly quickly. Taking these medicines seems like a good idea but they do eventually wear off and, often, your cold will last longer because, instead of working through the symptoms, the medication just puts them on hold for a little while. Natural health methods, on the other hand, actually work against your cold so that you get over the cold faster. (more…)

According to David Perlmutter a neurologist and fellow of the American College of Nutrition the answer is yes. In his book a “Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar” he claims that grains are responsible for many degenerative brain disorders and he has devised a version of the Paleo Diet. His claim that “the idea that people are nutritionally deprived because they don’t eat grain has no scientific basis” is controversial and his diet is very strict (any cheating can be harmful).

Many pool owners want to gain the health benefits of swimming but find that the season when the water is warm enough is too short. They may have considered a gas pool heater but been put off by the high running costs (particularly if you have to use propane). The answer is a pool heat pump. Although they are more expensive to buy they are cheap to operate and environmentally friendly. However they do have some disadvantages.
What Is A Heat Pump?
In essence a heat pump is a device which transfers heat from one place and deposits it elsewhere. In swimming pools heat is extracted from the surrounding air and transferred to the pool water. A heat pump can in addition be utilized to take heat from pipes sunk into the ground as is commonly the case when one is utilized for a home heating system. A drawback of air source heat pumps (as used for pools) is that they become less efficient in low temperatures and require a defrost feature to enable them to keep working.
Everyone is used to fridges and a/c units which work in the same way except they are used for cooling instead of heating. Whilst standard pool heat pumps are designed for pool warming all the ranges incorporate a version that can be reversed to cool the water. (more…)
