Top 5 New Year’s Resolutions

My top 5 recommendations for you in 2014 are to:


Eat nuts and seeds every day – they can cut risk of cancer and heart disease by a fifth.

Take 1-2g vitamin C daily – it lowers blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, reduces length and severity of infections, keeps skin supple and improves energy and mood – what’s not to like?

Keep your vitamin D level up. Supplement at least 15-25mcg a day. Vitamin D is vital for a whole host of health issues.

Eat a low GL diet – it’s good for weight, cravings, energy, diabetes, heart health, bone health, preserving memory and much more.

Green vegetables keep you healthy in mind and body say quite a few studies looking at dementia risk. Load up on brussels sprouts, broccoli, green cabbage and kale.In fact my overriding message of this year is that taking steps to prevent ill health is far safer and more effective than taking drugs. That’s why I’ve written my new book Good Medicine in which I offer simple, safe and natural things you can do to prevent or reverse over 75 common health problems.
