Eating Healthy

Fish vs. Meat

Advisable to cut down on red meat and consume more white meat such as poultry and pork along with fish of every description. Fish has a lot of oils and omega fats which are good for us. Again it is recommended that one sees your GP before changing ones diet. Aim for a balanced diet which must include fruits and vegetables.

Natural Alternative

With regards to the benefits of various bush teas, ginger, turmeric, herbs, spices and lemons to name but a few things, it is recommended that one sees your G.P. or health professional before trying any alternative remedies on a regular basis as what might work for one person might not be suitable for another.
