Water Quality And Filtration

Water quality. The human body is constituted of roughly 50-75% water. This substance covers over 70% of the Earth’s surface, and all known life is contingent on the precondition that water is present in a given environment. Without water, there is no life to begin with; and without the presence of water, life cannot abide.     Yes, this substance may be readily available to us, available from many sources, drinkable, and essentially everywhere we go […]

Mindfulness At Mealtimes

In this article we will address the Philosophy of Eating. In upcoming articles on this site, we will further address the encouragement of salubrious digestive function, as digestive health is a point of great contention for many in this here and now, day and age.

Such thoughts can be utterly confounding when it all seems so mundane sometimes… Now, I am not exactly sure what conclusions to draw from these statements of fact, but […]

The undeserved bad reputation of fat.

When considering what to eat, one of the more important things to be mindful of is: the ratio of macronutrients we are consuming. ‘Macronutrients’ are fats, proteins, carbohydrates. Most in my part of the world have very carb-heavy diets. High-protein diets are also very common in a country like Ireland. But, often stigmatised unfairly are diets that are unusually high in fat; saturated fats in particular. Although we always want to be calculating in how […]

An Introduction To Healthy Eating – Natural Nourishment

I have found myself in many conditions over the course of my life: obese, underweight, sickly, vital. From the time I found my way into this world, I seemed like a passenger in many senses, being a passenger to my state of health was one of them. It seemed to just happen, how I felt. As a child, I assumed I didn’t have a lot to do with it. I figured my state of well-being […]
