    5. Hypo Allergenic. Cork contains a waxy substance called suberin & has the property of naturally repelling small vermin and insects. This makes the cork surface resistant to the growth and colonization of these organisms & can therefore help to promote the healthiest & cleanest surface for Yoga practice and is ideal for people prone to allergic reactions.

    The Eat Real Food Cookbook – David Gillespie

    $39.95 $27.97

    For nearly ten years, David Gillespie has warned us of the dangers of sugar, and Australia has listened. More recently he has alerted us to the other toxin in our food supply: seed oil. Most processed food – from French fries to yoghurt to spreadable butter – contains one or both of these ingredients, so the question is: how do we eat real food?

     
    This is an intensely practical book designed to solve an intensely practical problem. How to create high quality food – simply, inexpensively quickly and every day – that’s completely free of the twin evils of fructose (the dangerous part of sugar) and seed oils (the man-made fats recently added to our food supply).

     
    Expanding on his 2015 bestseller Eat Real Food, David shows us how to:
    – Identify and avoid sugar – and seed-oil-laden supermarket products
    – Identify and shop for the healthy options
    – Make the foods we normally buy in jars and packets – from mayonnaise to bread to tomato sauce
    – Make simple, inexpensive daily meals the entire family will love
    – Pack and plan for meals away from home
    – Create healthier treats for all occasions, from kids' birthdays to cocktail parties

     
    The Eat Real Food Cookbook is your guide to saying 'no' to the food the manufacturers want you to eat and 'yes' to the sort of food that will help you manage your weight and the long-term health of your family.

Yet typically 75% of us are deficient. Symptoms of Magnesium deficiency range from fatigue to insomnia, to muscle aches and pains it can also effect our moods and anxiety levels.

It is also perfectly safe to use during breastfeeding.

    *Available in bulk by Special Order

     
    Magnesium has so many therapeutic benefits yet most of us do not get the daily recommended amount.

     
    The great benefit оf Magnesium through bath or foot soak іs thаt yоu absorb magnesium via thе skin much mоrе efficiently thаn if yоu were tо ingest tablets and powders, which аrе hard tо digest and absorb properly through thе gut wall. According to researchers the average person is lucky if they evеn get 20% оf thе magnesium frоm tablets making іt tо tissue cells inside thе body. The majority іs excreted tоо fast. If yоu try tо compensate by taking extra oral doses it causes the stool to liquefy, іn which case thе magnesium іs lost tоо quickly.

     
    Another great benefit from soaking is that it gives the body the opportunity to release waste products via skin into the water. Use comfortably hot water for best results. Perspiring helps the excretion process. When the body can release toxins via the skin it eases the burden of processing of the toxins back through the digestive system via kidney and liver. Remember to drink a lot of purified and mineralised water to allow best blood circulation, blood pressure and detoxing. If you feel faint or hyper-stimulated in a hot bath it is a sign that your cells are dehydrated. Reduce the heat of the bath and drink more water. In this case it is wise to avoid sodium salt until symptoms disappear and blood pressure returns to normal, as sodium tends to dehydrate.

     
    Elektra Magnesium Chloride Flakes ‘food grade’ can also be used to make mineral drinking water from filtered, distilled or rain water. It can also be used to make a mouth wash with a stronger concentration (1 teaspoon per 250-300mL). Very alkalising and good for teeth and gum health. Magnesium is anti-inflammatory.

     
    Hexahydrate 98% MgCl2.6H20 (min 46% MgCl2)

    • Naturally evaporated from salt water located 3,200m above sea level in the Tibetan Plateau
    • Laboratory tested – No mercury or lead
    • Contain over 16% elemental magnesium ions

     
    RECOMMENDED DILUTION & USES
    • BATH: 2 cups per bath.
    • FOOTSOAK: 1 dessertspoon in half bucket hot water.
    • MASSAGE or COMPRESS: 50g or 60g per 100ml water (adjust lower for sensitive skin). You can also apply additional plant oil to massage. With direct application to skin in massage or compress you may experience temporary tingling sensation. The solution may be diluted further if required. As magnesium cellular stores are replenished the tingling sensation dissipates.
    • MOUTHWASH: 1 teaspoon per 250-350ml purified water. Store solution away from daylight. This dilution can also be used as an eye make up remover with application to cotton applicator.
    • MINERAL WATER: To restore minerals in drinking water after distillation, reverse osmosis filtering, or in rain water, add about 5 flakes (small pinch) in 1.25 litres water.

    Canning & Pickling Salt 1kg

    $11.50

    Canning & Pickling Salt is pure salt, free from heavy metals, free flowing agents, other inorganic minerals and contaminants. NaCl 100%.

     
    Salt provides two elements that are essential for life and for good health: sodium and chloride. The body cannot manufacture either element itself, so they must be supplied by food.

     
    Sodium plays a critical role in body physiology. It controls the volume of fluid in the body and helps maintain the acid-base level. Sodium is an electrolyte, like potassium, calcium and magnesium; it regulates the electrical charges moving in and out of cells in the body. Sodium is important in proper nerve conduction, in aiding the passage of various nutrients into cells, and in the maintenance of blood pressure. Sodium-dependent enzymes are required for carbohydrate digestion.

     
    Chloride ions also help maintain proper blood volume, blood pressure, and pH of body fluids. Chloride is the major extracellular anion and contributes to many body functions including the maintenance of blood pressure, acid-base balance, muscular activity, and the movement of water between fluid compartments. Chloride is the major component of hydrochloric acid, which is needed for protein digestion.

     
    Symptoms of low hydrochloric acid include bloating, acne, iron deficiency, belching, indigestion, diarrhoea and multiple food allergies. Chloride is available in very few foods, and adequate chloride must be obtained from salt.

     
    Container Size: 1 kg Bag
    Each 5gm contains: Sodium 740 mg and 740 mg of Chloride
    Directions for Use: Use liberally to food and as directed unless advised otherwise.

    Sweet Poison – Why Sugar Makes us Fat – David Gillespie

    $22.99 $16.09

    David Gillespie was 40kg overweight, lethargic, sleep-deprived and the father of four, with twins on the way. He knew he needed to lose weight fast, but he had run out of diets – all had failed.

     

    After doing some reading on evolution (why weren't our forebears fat?), David cut sugar – specifically fructose – from his diet. He immediately started to lose weight, and kept it off. Slim, trim and fired up, David set out to look at the connection between sugar, our soaring obesity rates and some of the more worrying diseases of the twenty-first century, and discovered some startling facts in the process.

     

    • Sugar was once such a rare resource that nature decided we didn't need an off-switch – in other words, we can keep eating sugar without feeling full.
    • In the space of 150 years, we have gone from eating no added sugar to more than a kilogram a week.
    • You would need to run 7km every day of your life just to not put on weight as a result of eating that much sugar.
    • Two decades ago 1 in 14 adult Australians were obese; that figure is now 1 in 5.
    • The 'natural' sugar in one glass of unsweetened fruit juice per day for a year is enough to add just over 2.5kg your waistline.
    • The more sugar we eat, the more we want. Food manufacturers exploit our sugar addiction by lacing it through 'non-sweet' products, such as bread, sauces, soups and cereals.

     

    Sweet Poison exposes one of the great health scourges of our time and offers a wealth of practical and accessible information on how to avoid fructose, increase your enjoyment of food and lose weight.

    That Sugar Book – Damon Gameau

    $34.95 $24.47

    When actor and filmmaker Damon Gameau met a girl he was keen to impress he decided to get healthy by dramatically reducing his sugar intake. In no time he was slimmer, calmer, fitter and happier. He was also very curious: why did the elimination of sugar have such beneficial effects on his health and wellbeing? He decided to experiment and film the results. He would eat 40 teaspoons of sugar a day for 60 days. Crucially, he would only consume perceived 'healthy' foods like muesli bars, breakfast cereals, low-fat yoghurts, juices and smoothies.

     

    The results were staggering. Although his caloric intake was the same as his regular diet, he put on nearly 9 kilograms in 60 days. Within a couple of weeks, he had the beginnings of fatty liver disease. Doctors who monitored his health throughout warned him that he was on the road to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. His journey took him not just down a path to ill health, but to outback Australia and to the backblocks of the USA. He interviewed food manufacturers, health experts and large-scale consumers of the white stuff. He discovered that 80 per cent of products on our supermarket shelves contain sugar, and that 5.5 million Australians have fatty liver disease directly linked to their sugar consumption.

     

    That Sugar Book follows Damon on his journey and blows the lid on how the food industries make and sell our food, and how they are complicit in, and indeed determined to, maintain the status quo on the world's alarming and health-destroying sugar consumption. In also contains sensible advice on kicking the habit, foods to avoid, how to shop, how to read labels and how to cook sugar-free food, with the help of over thirty delicious, nurturing and easily prepared recipes.

     

    Fun, feisty and fired up, this book is set to change the eating habits of a generation.
