Now is the time that people are still getting run down and reaching for their tried and trusted vitamins and herbs. But do they work? There are no “guarantees” unfortunately with many of the brands currently on the market today. You may be surprised that your apparent savings maybe false economy. See why.

The month of June is the beginning of winter and often brings winter ills and chills. Any new referral from existing clients not only gives the referee a free Vitamin D supplement but the referrer $20 off their next consult – win win!!

In fact the biggest complement to give us about our service is to not only refer but tell others in a review. 

Until next month

Are you wasting your money on supplements that just don’t work?

Many people grab their nutritional supplements in a supermarket. In the interests of finding the “best buy” meet Tom. Tom has a cold.  So informed by best friend Sue, strongly advocated by Aunty Manu, and backed up by Google he should take a certain Andrographis and Echinacea combination from their local supermarket located in aisle 4 so that he’s better for his next rugby game! “You will find it in between a fizzy B complex and some garlic pearls AND it’s on special this week”.

Firstly, I just want to commend Tom for going straight to aisle 4 rather than the next one along which contains “cold and flu” extra strength tablets giving symptomatic relief but will not help his immunity strengthen for next time. Well done Tom! Now let’s see if Tom really got such a good deal and lightly review the supplement suggested to him: (Read More)

You may be thinking that happiness and success go hand-in-hand because success causes happiness, not the other way around, or does it?

Researchers at the University of California in Riverside set out to test that hypotheses, and found happiness is associated with (and precedes) several successful outcomes, as well as behaviours that go along with success, proving that the relationship goes both ways: Success brings happiness, but happiness actually does bring success.

So, what makes happy people, well, happy people? It seems that happy people tend to have a few things in common. Very happy people are found to be very social, and have stronger romantic and social relationships than less-happy people. Research has also found happy people to be energetic, decisive, creative, social, trusting, loving, and responsive. Rather than being strongly linked to external characteristics like socioeconomic status, gender or age, happiness is more positively associated with having a philosophical view of life, using laughter and humour, being able to relate to others, having problem-solving skills, engaging in meaningful pursuits and leisure activities, living in a positive environment, and maintaining a well-balanced lifestyle.

Did you know? Fish oils can reduce gum disease.


  • 9182 adults participating in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey between 1999 and 2004 in the US were evaluated for the presence or absence of gum disease, in addition to having their omega-3 fatty acid intake assessed.
  • People who consumed the most dietary DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) were found to have about 20% lower prevalence of gum disease than patients who ate the least DHA; the impact of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) consumption was less apparent.
  • The effects of omega-3 fatty acids in reducing gum disease appear to be due to their anti-inflammatory properties.

DP Herbals review:

Periodontitis is a common, usually long-lasting inflammatory disease that can cause gum tissue to separate from teeth, which can lead to bone and tooth loss. This study found a significant association between omega-3 intake and lower incidences of the disease. It has been discovered that essential fatty acids can reduce the growth of oral pathogens such as Streptococcus mutans and Porphyromanus gingavalis. Yet another thing that fish oils can be good for!
