Mind Body Diabetes - Type 1 and Type 2 - A positive, powerful, and prove solution to stop diabetes once and for all.

by Emma Mardlin PhD

Published by Findhorn Press. Distributed by Deep Books. 2016. Paperback. £12.99. ISBN 978-1-84409-687-9.

"Mind Body Diabetes brilliantly demonstrates how harnessing your Mind-Body Connection in addition to the traditional treatment approaches is a key powerful tool in achieving your health goals.”

Dr Sarah Brewer, Licensed Doctor, Medical Nutritionist, Award-Winning Health Writer  Author

Diabetes is regularly in the headline news - and it’s not surprising, since it is now recognized as the world’s fastest growing chronic condition. As many as 1 in 11 adults are reported as having diabetes and another 1 in 2 are said to be undiagnosed. Emma Mardlin PhD, a professional in mind body medicine and the author of Mind Body Diabetes is one of those adults - with two decades of personal experience of living with Type 1 diabetes.

Cover Mind Body Diabetes

Emma’s story is a remarkable one, after many years of challenges (including coma due to severe hypoglycaemia, being told she was going blind and severe gluten intolerance) she has turned her life around and achieved 5.8% HbA1C on minimal insulin - putting her in the ‘normal’ non-diabetic range.

What does that mean? HbA1c refers to glycated haemoglobin. By measuring HbA1c, clinicians are able to get an overall picture of what our average blood sugar levels have been over a period of weeks/months. For people with diabetes this is important as the higher the HbA1c, the greater the risk of developing diabetes-related complications. A pre-diabetes measurement would be between 6.0%- 6.4%. Diabetic would be 6.5% and over. Normal is below 6%

Emma’s pioneering book sheds a new light on this condition by sharing new, fresh, and exciting information on how to significantly improve the condition - and even how to reverse it completely. Packed with practical information, it guides the reader on a journey to live life to the max and stop diabetes emotionally and physically.

Written in an easy-to-follow step-by-step format, Mind Body Diabetes integrates humour with its down to earth personal experiences and research.  A must for anyone with diabetes - and a great resource for health professionals.

About the Author

Emma Mardlin PhD has over 20 years’ personal experience of T1 diabetes. A professional in mind body medicine, Emma is a trained psychotherapist and partner in The Pinnacle Practice in London and Nottingham where she works as a clinician, writer and trainer in the UK and abroad.

Heavy Metal Detox with ACZ Nano

Heavy metals are some of the most potent toxins on the planet and the need for our bodies to be detoxed from these harmful metals is more important than ever. The ACZ Nano formula was born out of the need for highly effective detoxification agent to meet a demanding list of criteria. These are:

  • Oral administration
  • Rapid absorption into the bloodstream
  • Selectively binds toxic heavy metals and free radicals of all types, such as Mercury and Lead
  • Irreversibly binds toxic heavy metals and free radicals of all types
  • Does not bind nutrient metals such as Calcium, Magnesium, etc.
  • Immediate, profound benefit
  • Safe for long term use
  • Backed by independent research

Heavy Metal Detox with ACZ Nano

ACZ Nano is a natural volcanic ash that mechanically binds the metals into its cage like structure. It has been cleaned with a proprietary process 4 times to remove any contamination and independent testing shows it to have below detectable levels any contamination. It has also been pretreated with calcium, magnesium and potassium and will give these important nutrients to the body as part of the detox process. ACZ Nano is the only Zeolite on the market with over 20 independent post provocation studies to prove how effective the ACZ Nano is in increase urinary excretion of heavy metals. In one of the studies the patient saw an immediate 1000-fold increase in excretion in Mercury over 12hrs of taking the spray. There is a problem with agents like DMPS, EDTA, Chlorella and Cilantro in that some of the toxins that are mobilized will then migrate to other parts of the body, which is especially bad news if they migrate and re-deposit to the brain. So one of the big advantages of ACZ Nano over these other chelating agents is that because the toxins are tightly bound to the zeolite cage none of the metals can be deposited in to other parts of the body. ACZ Nano is easy to take, with no taste, just spray a few times into your mouth and hold for 1 minute, it will be quickly absorbed through the oral tissues and get to work reducing the body of its toxic burden.

Results RNA ACS 200 Advanced Cellular Silver

The ACS200 is another outstanding product backed by decades of research and over 19 patents. In independent tests the ACS200 has been proven to be several thousand times more effective at killing pathogens than any other colloidal silver on the market.

Results RNA ACG Glutathione

In tests the ACG Glutathione produced a 12% increase in intracellular Glutathione levels in 7hrs proving the ACG to be an extremely effective way of supplementing this important anti-oxidant.

EMF Pollution Healing With Scalar Wave Technology from QuWave

EMF pollution is a widely-known health hazard. In the modern age we're surrounded by cell phones, electronic equipment, appliances, microwaves, and power lines. And along with today's technology come side effects. The conveniences that we've come to depend on generate electromagnetic frequencies (EMF) that are dangerous to our health. Some symptoms of EMF pollution include chronic headache, lack of energy, trouble falling and staying asleep, feeling worn down, anxiety, malaise, and difficulty concentrating. Most people who are affected by EMF pollution don't even realize the cause. EMF is an insidious creature indeed.

EMF Pollution Healing With Scalar Wave Technology from QuWave

Since 2004, QuWave has been a leader in the energy medicine field, manufacturing products that combat the harmful effects of EMF pollution. Using combinations of Scalar Waves, Solfeggio Frequencies, Schumann Resonance, and Chi Orgone energies, QuWave's products neutralize negative energies and turn them into positive, healing vibrations.

Though QuWave offers several lines of products intended for various results, the Harmonizer was created specifically to combat EMF pollution. The Harmonizer emits high frequency Scalar Waves along with the Schumann resonance. The combination of these frequencies provides a soothing, grounding effect.

Just as EMF pollution is cumulative, healing through energy frequencies is a gradual process. Most users start to feel the positive effects after two days up to about two weeks. Headaches start to disappear, sleep becomes easier and deeper, and an overall feeling of well-being show that healing is taking place.

In addition to combating EMF pollution symptoms, the Harmonizer and QuWave products promote a healthy and balanced lifestyle:

  • The Divine focuses on the third eye and crown chakras for spiritual awakening
  • The Dreamer promotes deep, restful sleep
  • The Energizer transmits quantum energy to your water, food, vitamins, even jewelry
  • The Amore improves intimacy, relationships, and feelings of real love
  • The Defender works against electronic harassment, mind control, and psychic attacks

Even though we're under constant assault from the electromagnetic frequencies that surround us, we can fight back. We don't have to remain victims of EMF pollution. Choose health and happiness instead!

Rayonex - Action 3 Zero

In 2013 Rayonex Germany reached their 30th anniversary and is now the largest and most successful biomedical company in Germany, Europe too for that matter! More importantly Rayonex pursue a philosophy of education and a cause oriented approach to therapy that does not necessarily place treatment first. Sometimes merely lifting and removing negative influences to health is sufficient for a person to return to a balanced and healthy situation.

Rayonex - Action 3 Zero

To mark the 30th anniversary Rayonex launched Action 3 Zero. What is it? Action 3 Zero is an opportunity to receive free education in energetic medicine with a particular focus on bioresonance according to Paul Schmidt. In addition the students are provided with a loan bioresonance machine completely free of charge for a full month!*

Now in 2016 Rayonex UK are delighted to bring this unique offer to Britain. It works this way, groups of 3 interested people are invited to our facility in Wales and receive a full day of intensive education in the concept and application of bioresonance. For those wishing to travel and stay over the night before the training Hotel accommodation is also provided without charge. Therefore Action 3 Zero is unique; it presents an unparalleled opportunity for 3 people to experience all that bioresonance can offer at Zero costs.

The fundaments of energy medicine will be discussed; for example the tests commonly used in hospitals to determine life or death are energetic in nature - EEG and ECG. If no heart or brain energies are detected life is not present. The mechanism by which sun tanning occurs in the skin is also energetic as the use of tanning lamps conclusively proves.

Students will also learn that although infectious disease has always been part of world history, the modern world presents new challenges to health; you may have heard the phrase ‘diseases of civilization’. Information will be presented to outline steps to avoid if possible and protect if necessary against geopathic stress, electro-smog - both the low frequency fields that have been part of our lives for over 100 years and the newer high frequency field that are now ubiquitous.

Bioresonance analysis will be demonstrated showing how to identify energetic deficits relating specific organs, systems and mechanisms in the body. The growing scourge of food intolerances and allergies will be discussed as will the testing of substances such as foods or body care products etc for the presence of toxins.

Please contact us to book you place on an Action 3 Zero group.

* Shipping and return costs for the loan device are chargeable.

Wake Up to the Health Benefits of Soemac

Introducing SoeMac, a non-invasive, alternative Oxygen Therapy treatment that is helping people with a wide range of sleep, low energy and health problems. It is a completely natural device that works by drawing air inside and producing a bio-usable form of energised oxygen, known as Singlet Oxygen or SOE. Feeling tired and lethargic is a sign that oxygen levels are being compromised, which can lead to a weaker immune system and faster ageing. SoeMac is a clever little device that can be used at home to give your body an extra energy boost leaving you feeling energized and revived.

Wake Up to the Health Benefits of Soemac

So how does it work? SOE is an alternative therapy, which has been shown to relax the lungs and the cardio-vascular system and improve the body’s utilization of oxygen by changing it into a more energized form, which is more readily usable by the body.

At the cellular level the body then uses this extra energy to more effectively do its jobs, and produce more ATP, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate, the body’s energy currency.

Used at night, when at rest, the body is more able to use this oxygen energy to carry out important repair work, including detoxification and rejuvenation. This can result in deeper sleep, reduced feelings of fatigue and increased concentration levels throughout the day.

SoeMac has many important benefits. It is completely safe, there are no side effects and it is suitable for all ages, from birth onwards. It is a completely natural therapy and is easy and comfortable to use. Simply plug it in by the side of the bed and breathe in the natural oxygen therapy.

SoeMac is helping people living with four key conditions:

Sleep Disorders - Using SoeMac may help people to experience better sleep and have more energy during the day. People often find that when using SoeMac their quality of sleep improves and they sleep more soundly and for longer periods of time. It’s also common to feel more refreshed on waking and more energised for the day ahead.

Energy - SoeMac is helping people with a wide range of conditions characterised by ongoing fatigue as well as those who experience low energy on a day-to-day basis. The most common low energy conditions are Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis as well as Fibromyalgia.

Breathing disorders – SoeMac is helping people living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder, Emphysema and Asthma because it works by clearing the lungs of mucus, allowing more oxygen to flow into the body.

Autism - sufferers of autism, especially children, are prone to a poor night’s sleep, which often impacts on other family members and a vicious circle of sleep deprivation ensues. Sleep is often disrupted during the times of deep sleep and without this, the behavioural symptoms of children with autism can be exacerbated.

Further Information

SoeMac can be purchased at and comes with a 30-day money back guarantee.


Don’t Just Sit There! Transitioning to a Standing and Dynamic Workstation for Whole-Body Health

by Katy Bowman

Published by Propriometrics Press-Lotus Publishing. 2015. Paperback. £12.99/$9.39. ISBN: 978 1 905367 65 8.

In this new book Katy Bowman, bestselling author of Move Your DNA, poses the question - If sitting is indeed the new smoking, we should definitely quit. But is sitting really the problem, or is something else going on? Is getting better as simple as kicking over your chair and standing all day - in front of the same computer, under the same fluorescent lighting - or is there something more to be learned from the data about how people (and their bodies) work best?

Don’t Just Sit There! Transitioning to a Standing and Dynamic Workstation for Whole-Body Health

Whilst sitting is not the new smoking, there is no doubt that the repetitive use of a single position is causing us to become ill in a variety of ways. Muscles will adapt to a repetitive positioning, changing their cellular makeup and lessening their range of motion. Don’t Just Sit There provides ideas and tips that help people who work 9-to-5 to have a healthier working environment. Many people know that sitting is not the best for their body; however, what they don’t know is that simply standing is not going to improve their health either.

Research shows that sitting is not necessarily what affects human’s body; it is the repetitive position that is changing our muscle tone, which eventually will have an adverse effect on our body, leading to biomechanical dysfunction. Katy Bowman offers a comprehensive understanding of how best to sit and stand, incorporating her theories and research with a series of exercises and workouts.

Don’t Just Sit There presents

  • How conventional office arrangements are capping our level of health and why this can’t be offset with a daily bout of exercise;
  • That sitting and screen-time are two different variables and should be treated as such;
  • Corrective exercises to sit, stand, and move better without leaving your office;
  • How to boost your creativity and energy levels at the office.

About the Author

Katy Bowan is a biomechanist by training and a problem solver at heart. The founder of Nutritious Movement, Katy also has her own podcast, Katy Says. Often a source of national health publications, Katy helps numerous patients to reduce their chronic pains. Besides these achievements, Katy is also a bestselling author of multiple books including Whole Body Barefoot (2015), Move Your DNA (2014), Alignment Matters (2013), and Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief (2011).

VonnyBee Bee Pollen - Hayfever Fixer

Every year, millions of summers are ruined by the dreaded hay fever season. “Hay fever is an allergy to grass and tree pollen. The natural relief for it is found in flower pollen, which bees collect and take to their hives” says beekeeper, Yvonne Matthews.

Yvonne is an apiculturist and apitherapist from Childwall, Liverpool who fell in love with bees 10 years ago. Her company, Vonnybee, is an all-natural company that manufactures health and well-being products produced by bees; this includes raw honey, propolis, butter balms, and bee pollen.

VonnyBee Bee Pollen - Hayfever Fixer

Over the 10 years, she has continually found ways in which the flying insects benefit us. In particular, one substance hay fever sufferers can’t get enough of is the Vonnybee Bee Pollen.

Bee Pollen (Hay fever antidote)

For many years, sufferers of hay fever have moved towards more natural ways of alleviating symptoms.

“Within 10 minutes of taking a teaspoon of bee pollen, new customers are always amazed at how fast the itching and sneezing has stopped”, says Yvonne. “I offer a money-back guarantee, but people never give it back. Instead, a month or two down the line, they’re asking for a new pot because of how effective it is”.

Bee pollen (Superfood)

Not only is it used for hay fever suffers; celebrities such as Victoria Beckham take bee pollen daily for the many nutrients and vitamins is contains.

“Though it is used for hay fever, bee pollen is also good for health and wellbeing as it is the most nutritionally valued superfood in the world. It contains nearly every nutrient the body needs to function”, Yvonne explains.

“I didn’t realize how good bee pollen was for me until the jar ran out and my arthritis came back. A teaspoon a day is all I need to give my body the nutrients it needs” – a Vonnybee customer.

#NaturalCycles - App to help fight Zika to donate 1 million free subscriptions

Natural Cycles ( ), the natural family planning app which has shown to be similar to the contraceptive pill at preventing pregnancies*, has announced plans to help fight the Zika virus by donating 1 million free subscriptions of its service (the equivalent of over 25m dollars) to help women in Brazil temporarily postpone pregnancy until the virus is deemed to be under control.

#NaturalCycles - App to help fight Zika to donate 1 million free subscriptions

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared Zika a global public health emergency and some doctors are advising women in affected countries to delay getting pregnant. The virus is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito and is suspected of leading to thousands of babies being born with underdeveloped brains.

Natural Cycles co-founder Dr Raoul Scherwitzl said: “Access to contraception is often limited in many of the countries hit by Zika due to moral and social reasons. Those do not apply to the Natural Cycles app as we do not interfere with a woman’s body in any way – our app simply helps to educate women and their partner about her fertility. The data collected by the app to postpone pregnancies during this time can then be used to find the most fertile days in order to accelerate pregnancies once Zika is deemed to be under control.”

The Natural Cycles app works by identifying a woman’s ovulation and fertile window by tracking her period and temperature. Women are required to record the temperature under their tongue in the morning before getting up and enter it into the app. The app then determines whether you are fertile on that day; if it is green, you are not fertile and the risk of pregnancy is very low. If it is red, then you are considered fertile which means you should avoid unprotected sex. Similarly, this information can also be used to plan a pregnancy.

A recent clinical study analysing how effective the Natural Cycles app was at preventing pregnancies among over 4,000 women found it to be comparable to the contraceptive pill. The study was carried out at the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, and was published in the European Journal of Contraception and Reproductive Healthcare*.

About Natural Cycles                                                                                       

Natural Cycles is the safe, healthy and easy-to-use fertility app for women based on their body temperature, which is used to prevent, plan and monitor pregnancies. The app was founded by husband and wife team, Dr Elina Berglund and Dr Raoul Scherwitzl. With PhDs in physics, they applied their mathematical techniques to develop the Natural Cycles algorithm. Elina was a researcher at CERN and one of the physicists that discovered the Higgs Boson which led to the Nobel Prize in 2013. The Natural Cycles app mission is to educate and empower women to take control of their fertility and future, championing a vision where every pregnancy is wanted. Beyond the app offering, Natural Cycles advances scientific research in the field of contraception and fertility.


*Results of the clinical study demonstrating the effectiveness of Natural Cycles as a natural birth control has recently been published in the peer-reviewed European Journal of Contraception & Reproductive Health Care

    Can Meditation Slow Down the Effects of Ageing

    A research team led by Nobel Prize winning Biochemist Elizabeth Blackburn, has found that meditation can increase levels of an important enzyme called telomerase. A low level of telomerase can cause cells to malfunction and lose their ability to divide. This has been discovered to be a significant factor in the ageing process. A Meditation Machine offers a modern, faster approach to meditation. With only 15-20 minutes using the Meditation Machine you may achieve the same deep, mental state as a Zen monk on your first session.

    There is little evidence to support any consistent effect of probiotics on the gut microbiota of health individuals, according to a systematic review published in the open access journal Genome Medicine. The World Health Organisation defines probiotics as live microorganisms which confer a health benefit to the host if administered in adequate amounts and probiotics products are often marketed toward the general population, however evidence for their effects on bacteria living in the guts of healthy adults remains elusive.
