Supplements vs. Foods

For years, supplements or complimentary medicines have been used to assist certain health conditions or deficiencies, with over 60% of Australians using some type of supplement. In 2016, the complementary medicine industry had a reported revenue of $4.7 billion, up from $3.5 billion in 2014. There is no doubt the supplement industry has ingrained themselves into the lives of the Australian public. What we are currently seeing is a trend in controlled diets and nutrition towards natural, whole foods, as a way to combat the huge problem of obesity and other chronic health problems such as Diabetes. It is important...


Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy. It is diagnosed when your body cannot cope with the extra demand for insulin production resulting in high blood sugar levels. This is normally temporary and, in most cases, disappears after the baby is born. However, some women continue to have high blood sugar levels after delivery.   Gestational diabetes is the highest growing form of diabetes in Australia, with 12-14% of women developing gestational diabetes at some point during their pregnancy. This normally occurs around the 24th to 28th week of pregnancy. It is recommended that all women...


Children and Type 2 Diabetes

The common understanding of Type 2 diabetes is that it develops over a long period of time as the body becomes resistant to the normal effects of insulin. In some cases, this may also result in reduced insulin secretion and even progress to Latent autoimmune diabetes in Adults (LADA)(1), where over time the body also fails to produce a sufficient amount of insulin in the pancreas (similar to Type 1 diabetes(1). Although there is still...

Diet and Exercise: If they can do it on Catalyst why can’t I?

So as we talked last time there was a very interesting but somewhat unhelpful catalyst program in which Dr Joanna McMillan helped a few individuals with their Type 2 Diabetes using weight and exercise. Over the next few posts we are going to break things down to  try and make this a bit more universally helpful. But first let’s go through some basics because one of the things we most often hear is “but why is it so hard for me, what’s wrong with me?”. We have covered some of this before, but it is worth mentioning again. Firstly remember...


Concentrated food vs. foods

In this blog, we will be talking about NutriKane D as a concentrated food, what that means, and how it differs from herbal supplements that tend to be extracts. Directed nutrition (or food as medicine) takes a very different approach to the same basic premise as vitamins and supplements. That premise is that when the body is deficient in the nutrients it needs, it can’t function well and that can either a) result in metabolic problems such as blood glucose management; and b) mean the body cannot deal with diseases as well as it should. It has been well established...
