In this section of my website, I have recommended wellness products that I have used myself, which have greatly improved my health. If you would like to find out more about these products or talk about my personal experience, please feel free to get in touch. I have linked to each of their websites below for your convenience.
CBD is one of many compounds, known as cannabinoids, that are found in the cannabis plant. Oils that contain concentrations of CBD are known as CBD oils. The concentration and uses of different oils vary. CBD is a natural pain reliever; it can assist with conditions like epilepsy, inflammation in the body, anxiety and diabetes.
This product is THC Free (tetrahydrocannabinol), which means that it is non psychoactive (it does not change the state of mind of the person who uses it) and therefore available to buy in the UK. I take a couple of drops of oil a day and this helps with my digestion.
More recently I had a problem with dry eyes. I had tests to check there were no other serious problems and they came back clear. My optician felt it was just a symptom of ageing. She mentioned that due to the dry eyes my cornea were getting damaged and had some concerns over this. The cornea is the clear dome shape that covers your eye.
I decided to use the CBD oil on my face and around my eyes. It felt very pleasant and soothing. I went back to the optician for another check the following month, so I had been using the CBD oil on my face for two and a half weeks at this time. When she checked my eyes, she was incredibly surprised.
BOTH CORNEA HAD COMPLETELY HEALED! IN TWO AND A HALF WEEKS!
Protandim (from LifeVantage) is a supplement containing a patented blend of herbs promoted to reduce oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects through neutralisation by antioxidants.
Antioxidants are molecules present in cells that prevent these reactions by donating an electron to the free radicals without becoming destabilised themselves. An imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants is the underlying basis of oxidative stress.
Oxidative stress leads to many pathophysiological conditions in the body. Some of these include neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease, gene mutations and cancers, chronic fatigue syndrome, fragile X syndrome, heart and blood vessel disorders, atherosclerosis, heart failure, heart attack and inflammatory diseases.
I have found that by taking just one supplement every day my immune system has improved massively. Since taking Protandim for the last 2 years I have not had a cold or other illness and it has destroyed the HPV virus completely. Also my hayfever symptoms have virtually disappeared.
If you would like to discuss anything to do with Protandim please do not hesitate to get in touch with me here.
I can really recommend this company for their colloidal silver products. So far I have used the gel, on cuts and rashes, the hand cream, which has a lovely lemon perfume, and the lip balm, for sore and cracked lips in the winter.
Colloidal silver is the term used to describe tiny particles of silver suspended in a liquid. Active Silver manufacture Colloidal Silver of the highest quality, which can be used as an extremely effective antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal and skin healing solution. Silver has been widely used as a natural treatment throughout history, as far back as Ancient Greece where they used a silver coin in a barrel of water to keep it fresh and stop bacteria growing.
It was very commonly used until the introduction of antibiotics c.1938, and is used by many many people today to help heal damaged skin and to fight infection. Hospitals use silver-coated implements and catheters to help prevent infection and it is found in sticky plasters and wound dressings in hospitals and burns units where it is used to heal skin and fight infection. It is also found in water systems in space shuttles, and is used by many airlines to curtail water-borne diseases.

In the last hundred or so years we have lost something vital for our health and wellbeing: our electrical connection to the Earth. With the advent of rubber and plastic soled shoes, and insulating mattresses, in insulated houses, we spend our days and nights disconnected from the Earth.
One only has to walk barefoot in the grass or on a beach for a while to feel the benefits of regaining this connection, and yet in our modern lives it is not always practical to do so. There is a very physical and scientifically verifiable reason why we feel better when we do this:
The Earth is a massive reservoir of negatively charged free electrons. Without a connection to this reservoir, the cells in our body are unable to balance the positive charge which results from things like electron-deficient free radicals. The effect of excess positive charge in the blood can be seen very clearly by the way in which the cells are attracted to clump together.
There are various things we can do to balance this electron-deficiency, such as eating anti-oxidant rich foods and drinking living water. *Note – please see products in next section. But what has been largely overlooked until recently is receiving free electrons from the Earth.
It’s such a simple thing and yet the effect can be so profound. In our modern lives we cannot always be outside and barefoot, but fortunately there are new technologies which can provide this electrical connection to the Earth in a convenient and practical way.
There is another effect of grounding which is particularly relevant in our modern electrical world. Our environment is full of a wide spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, from computers, mobile phones & masts, radio & TV broadcasts, WiFi, Bluetooth, power lines, domestic wiring, and other electrical appliances.
This electromagnetic radiation induces voltages in our bodies, disrupting the trillions of subtle electrical communications which are a vital part of the function of our body’s systems. By being grounded to the Earth we greatly reduce the levels of these induced voltages. We are electrical beings, living on an electrical planet, and our connection is vital for our health and wellbeing.
Groundology also supply a variety of inexpensive products to help keep you grounded in your day-to-day life.
