What does it Take to be Ready for Winter? – The Value of Clean Slate by Clare G Harvey

We know that the balance of our biochemistry and biophysics establishes our internal environment, where the cells function at the maximum level which not only establishes but is the indicator of optimum health which in turn determines our overall health and well-being.

A balanced mineral count, one of the essential parameters for healthy biological terrain is determined by diet, digestion, emotional/mechanical stressors, and environmental pollution

In 1974 The World Health Organization had already attributed environmental pollution, to be responsible for at least 80% of all chronic degenerative disease conditions, especially heavy metals, which pose the biggest threat to health.

The body has to cope with these toxins (specifically heavy metal overload or intoxication) which are ever-present in our air, food, water, vaccines, household goods, and medical drugs, which now appear to penetrate directly into our cellular level, suffocating the cells and preventing them from carrying out their essential functions.

This clearly is having a detrimental effect on the immune system, thereby weakening it, unlike previous generations where man-made toxins and petrochemicals were less prelavant; this onslaught leaves the innate immune system ill-equipped to deal with the multitude of viruses which re-invent themselves regularly in order to survive.


Root Clean Slate Collage


Root Clean Slate: with 16 years of research under its belt, is a form of ortho-silicic acid, derived from a superior form of clinoptilolite (zeolite), a naturally occurring volcanic crystalline mineral.

Its unique honeycomb cage-like structure (which is cleansed before use to ensure bio-availability) has a negative charge which attracts and can bind and trap a multitude of heavy metal toxins, etc eliminating them passively through the body, is proving to be very effective in addressing this ubiquitous toxicity.

Clean Slate uses a unique delivery system QNET– a Quantum NanoEmulsion Technology,  QNET is an innovative way to amalgamate ingredients through a nano-emulsion technology.  This is a novel delivery system that has never been done before; it’s original. 

The multiple sizes of the cage-like structure are sufficient to grab onto not only heavy metals and toxins but multiple viruses as well, which is where Clean Slate becomes an invaluable Ally, as part of a protocol (especially in the upcoming winter month) for meeting the viral overload and challenge we are faced specifically in today’s environment and is where antiviral and immune boosting products come very much into their own  

I introduced Clean Slate into the UK, due to its at times rapid effect and all encompassing effectiveness in health management. Although a US created and sourced product,  Warehouses in UK, Europe etc are setup for ease of supply without extra duty applied.

IFM’S Hormone Advanced Practice Module

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is an extremely common intervention, but it has its own health risks and may not address underlying causes of hormonal imbalance. For some clinicians, HRT in women and men is still considered the fountain of youth; for others, it has become a dangerous area fraught with considerable risk that is avoided completely. Controversies and disagreements abound regarding how to diagnose and measure hormonal dysfunction; how to address safety concerns in prescribing HRT; the form, application, and dosage to use; and when and how to insert lifestyle, diet, nutraceutical, and botanical treatments.The functional medicine approach is uniquely capable of responding to the controversy surrounding HRT by looking upstream to the wide variety of ways that the hypothalamic, pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, and gonadal (HPATG) axis modulates health. By applying dietary modifications, nutraceutical supplementation, and other lifestyle changes as a frontline treatment, the need for HRT can often be minimized or avoided.

This Functional Medicine Advanced Practice Module will clarify exactly how to approach hormonal dysregulation, with discussions on the most important evaluations to make and integrative treatment approaches to apply. We will help you analyze the controversies and provide you with tools that you can use immediately in your practice.

Our expert faculty team will supply you with the foundational background, insight, and in-depth clinical thinking to confidently assess and treat patients who present with hormonal dysfunction. This program will provide a unique, experiential, case-based, clinically practical experience from which you will acquire the tools you need to apply a comprehensive functional medicine approach to hormone dysfunction in your patients.

The Orientation Of Temples In The Ancient World

by W. Simpson (1823-99). Edited by Allan Armstrong ODP

Published by Imagier Publishing. Bristol 2022. Hardback. A New Edition.


The Orientation or Direction of Temples in the Ancient World


The author states in his original publication of The Orientation of Temples in the Ancient World, that “the orientation of temples, has been often alluded to in architectural and other works, but generally by little more than short notices, or as a passing reference.

So far as I know the subject seems never to have had much thought directed towards it, and consequently the literature of it is far from being extensive.” It is truly a remarkable work!

The Potential Role of Mushroom Nutrition in Homotoxicology / Micro-immunotherapy

Webinar Lecture by Dr Antonio Corralero MD

Oct 27, 2022 07:00 PM London

According to homotoxicology, illness is defined as an overload of the environment in which tissues and cells live and communicate (connective tissue matrix) with toxic substances (homotoxins). Each illness process runs through six specific phases and is the expression of the body’s attempt to cope with these toxins. In this 45-minute webinar for Healthcare Practitioners only, Dr Antonio Corralero MD will outline how mushroom nutrition is an adjunct therapy for homotoxicologists in their everyday practice. There will be an additional 15 minutes for questions.


MRL Webinar 27 Oct

Webinar 27 Oct 222 – Register for Free


Homotoxicologists use preparations that can be broadly divided into three main categories:

  1. Those that have detoxifying functions of the lymphatic system and the connective tissues (tissue regulation);
  2. Other preparations act on the modification of the immune system, a process termed immune-modulation;
  3. Then certain preparations are specifically designed to act on specific conditions or tissues, such as the thyroid or joints for example;

Over the past twenty years, researchers have determined that mushroom nutrition offers homotoxicologists adjunct preparations that:

  1. Detoxify;
  2. Initiate Immunomodulation;
  3. Reverse cellular and oxidative stress.

This 45-minute lecture provides healthcare practitioners an overview of the synergies between homotoxicology and mushroom nutrition.

Certificates of Presence:

Attendees [for Healthcare Practitioners only] who participate in the entire webinar will receive certificates of presence.

The Anatomy of Yoga Colouring Book – Learn the Form and Biomechanics of More Than 50 Asanas

by  Jo Ann Staugaard-Jones

Published by Lotus Publishing. 2022. Paperback. £11.75 / $19.95. ISBN: 978 1 913088 27 9.

Written for yogis of all levels, The Anatomy of Yoga Colouring Book perfectly bridges the gap between anatomy textbook, yoga compendium, and interactive revision tool.

The human body is a complex and fascinating machine. Author Jo Ann Staugaard-Jones illustrates just how clever it is by first breaking it down in to its component parts, and then putting it back together in its full glory within the context of yoga movement.

Starting with a comprehensive examination of the nervous system, anatomical movement, and all the body systems, the book then truly comes to life as Staugaard-Jones presents over 50 popular asanas describing with colour and artistry which muscles are being strengthened (contracting), which are being stretched (lengthened), and which muscles are working as stabilizers to support the pose.


Cover from Jon The Anatomy of Yoga Colouring Book


Test Your Knowledge as You Colour Intricate Black and White Drawings of Each Asana

The seven categories of asanas are presented with prompts to colour relevant structures and functions, insightful technique tips, and anatomical nuggets that will enhance your understanding of the science behind your practice. You will learn not only the benefits of each pose but also the contraindications, relevant terminology, and how to vary poses where necessary.

The Healing Heart of Yoga

What sets this book apart from others is its inclusion of the subtler realm of yoga – that which is referred to as ‘energetic anatomy’. Understanding the unseen energies of the body in terms of fascia, bandhas, nadis, and chakras will take you beyond just muscle and joint mechanics, alignment and technique, and connect you more profoundly to the yogic way of life.

About the Author 

Jo Ann Staugaard-Jones is an international movement educator and author, an Advanced Pilates and E-RYT500 Yoga Teacher Trainer, as well as a movement specialist, Kinesiology, Dance & Exercise Science Professor. She resides in beautiful Northwest New Jersey, USA.

Jo Ann has taught throughout the US, in the UK, Sweden, the Netherlands, Prague, Costa Rica, and France.  She is a member of the International Association of Dance Medicine & Science (IADMS) and PAMA, the Performing Arts Medicine Association, IDEA Fitness, the International Association of Yoga Therapists, and a senior trainer & Continuing Education provider through Yoga Alliance.

Staugaard-Jones is the other of several books on movement and anatomy, including The Vital Psoas Muscle (North Atlantic Books), which has sold over 100,000 copies as well as being translated into more than 20 languages.

The programme, which is supported by The Times and now in its fifth year, celebrates the leaders behind tomorrow’s mid-sized firms – growing businesses that are making a big impact.

Flavia Araujo-Rankin

Caption: Flavia Araujo-Rankin, founder and joint CEO of London Medical Laboratory, is delighted to have been chosen as one of The Times-LDC ‘Ones to Watch’.

Flavia Araujo-Rankin, founder and joint CEO of London Medical Laboratory, says:

“I’m thrilled to be chosen as one of this year’s “Ones to Watch”. It’s an honour to be included in such a list of inspirational business pioneers.

“London Medical Laboratory is the first omni-channel blood testing, diagnostic and phlebotomy business in the UK. We’re an industry disruptor offering health check and blood testing services in franchised High Street health stores and licensed pharmacies, and finger-prick home blood tests direct to customers ordered online and sent through the mail.

“Our convenient direct-to-customer self-testing kits give people easy access to blood, Covid and STI tests that they can do in the comfort of their homes and post the samples back to us. Our tests cover a wide range of conditions, from cholesterol and thyroid profiles, through to fertility, menopause and heart health, with next day results.

“Our High Street services are also growing rapidly. We now offer blood tests in close to 100 pharmacies and health stores across the UK, including a partnership with Holland & Barrett.

‘We are currently expanding rapidly and I, and my talented team, have plenty of ideas for the future. We’re regularly releasing new tests for a wide variety of conditions, from allergies to overall wellness profiles, and we’re increasingly involved with many organisations’ staff healthcare programmes. LML is actively looking for new pharmacy partners across the UK who want to access these new services and join our rapidly growing team.

“My ultimate vision is for blood testing to be available in every pharmacy and healthcare shop throughout the country, enabling people to take charge of their health.”

John Garner, Managing Partner, LDC adds: 'The volume and quality of submissions this year surpassed all of our expectations. We’ve been struck by the way business leaders have overcome challenges and adversity to run fast-growing and successful companies, proving that difficult circumstances can become the biggest driver of ambition.'

Drop Acid: The Surprising New Science of Uric Acid - The Key to Losing Weight, Controlling Blood Sugar and Achieving Extraordinary Health

By Dr David Perlmutter

Published by ‎Yellow Kite. 2022. Paperback. £8.99/ $15.89.  ISBN-10:‎ 1529388430.

What do obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, fatty liver disease, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, stroke, neurological disorders and premature death have in common? All can be stoked by high uric acid levels.


Cover Drop Acid


Our most respected scientific literature is bursting with evidence that elevated uric acid levels lie at the root of many pervasive health conditions, but mainstream medicine for the most part remains unaware of this connection. This is especially alarming because many people don't know they are suffering from sky-high levels, putting them at risk for developing or exacerbating potentially life-threatening illnesses.

Offering an engaging blend of science and practical advice, Drop Acid exposes the deadly truth about uric acid and teaches invaluable strategies to manage its levels, including:

  • Simple dietary edits focused on reducing fructose and foods high in 'purines' that can raise uric acid.
  • Natural hacks that lower levels such as consuming tart cherries, vitamin C, quercetin, and coffee.
  • Identifying common pharmaceuticals that threaten to increase uric acid.
  • Lifestyle interventions, like restorative sleep and exercise.
  • How to easily test your uric acid levels at home - a test routinely performed in your doctor's office during regular check-ups but typically ignored.

Featuring the ground-breaking 'LUV' (Lower Uric Values) diet, 35 delicious recipes, self-assessment quizzes and a 21 day program for dropping levels, Drop Acid empowers readers with the information they need to address this hidden danger and live longer, leaner and healthier lives.

Reclaiming Our Story – The Pursuit Of Jewish Pride

by Ben M. Freeman

Published by No Pasaran Media. October 2022. Paperback. £12.99.  ISBN-10 ‏1915036321


Founder of the Modern Jewish Pride Movement, Ben M. Freeman is the author of Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People (released in February 2021). He is an internationally renowned gay Jewish author, and educator focusing on Jewish identity, combatting Jew-hatred and raising awareness of the Holocaust. Ben came to prominence during the Corbyn Labour Jew-hate crisis and quickly became one of his generation's leading Jewish thinkers and voices against anti-Jewish racism.


Reclaiming Our Story The Pursuit of Jewish Pride


As a gay man living in London, Ben M. Freeman understands first-hand how discrimination can impact how we feel about ourselves and our mental health. Inspired by his experiences of LGBTQ+ pride and the journey to self-acceptance he was forced to take as a young gay teenager, Ben wants to make a difference, and spread pride in the Jewish community. Reflecting on his own battle with internalized homophobia – a result of growing up in 1990s Britain – Ben wants to raise awareness of this issue in the Jewish world, helping Jewish people reject the shame imposed on Jews by Jew-hate.

His new book, Reclaiming Our Story: The Pursuit of Jewish Pride, tells us how we can all act now for a fairer, more equal and more tolerant society. He focuses not just on the hate that targets Jews from external sources, but instead - in a radical and fresh perspective - on how that hate impacts Jews themselves. Educating his readers about the history and theory behind this phenomenon, Ben also offers tangible solutions and sets his reader on a path of healing. 

Although, to many, a deeply historical issue, it is still as pressing today as it has ever been. Today British Jews face rising antisemitism with 2021 reported as the worst in a decade for global Jew-hate that saw a 24% increase from the previous peak of 2019. From the surge in Jew-hate in the British Labour party, to the brutal murder of retired French doctor and school teacher Sarah Halimi and the subsequent miscarriage of justice, to the various terrorist attacks at American synagogues, there is an evident tsunami of Jew-hate that continues to threaten the Jewish community. An immensely complex and emotional subject, Ben M. Freeman explains why we cannot ignore, nor attempt to understand these issues without the relevant history and contextualization.

Both hopeful and inspiring, Reclaiming Our Story aims to educate and empower, while giving people the tools to start personal conversations about their Jewish self-esteem with empathy and without shame. Through five authentic interviews that offer a range of different voices, including a woman whose relationship with Jewishness was reframed due to the trauma of her family’s loss during the Holocaust, Ben M. Freeman demonstrates that it is possible to overcome internalized Jew-hate.

    Hyperbaric Oxygen for Arthritis

    In the United States alone, 23% of all adults have been diagnosed with arthritis which can result from injury to joints, undue stress to joints (as from obesity), overuse, smoking, normal wear and tear, or our immune system attacking and injuring joint tissue. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy(HbOT) is the use of increased pressure and increased oxygen to treat diseases. HbOT acts primarily by affecting your genes. A single hyperbaric treatment of human cells has been shown to turn on or off over 8,101 of our 19,000 genes. The largest groups of turned-on genes are the anti-inflammatory and growth/repair genes, and the largest groups of turned-off genes are those that cause inflammation and cell death.

    Ivermectin False Narratives

    According to Mikki Willis, “of all the harmful misinformation spread over the past couple of years, one of the most disturbing false narratives was targeted at the Nobel Prize winning HUMAN medicine, Ivermectin”. He has produced this short film to correct the narrative and to reveal the motive behind the smear campaign against one of the safest and most effective medicines of this era. A medicine that, according to the numerous top scientists I’ve interviewed, would have ended the pandemic before it began. A medicine that could have saved countless lives. Every medical professional I’ve spoken with, stress the importance of early treatment and the critical use of Ivermectin for long Covid.
