These include antibiotics to fight bacterial infections, statins to reduce cholesterol, numerous immunosuppressants, diabetes and malaria medications and –seemingly paradoxically - antifungals. The scientific evidence regarding medicinal mushrooms is accumulating, and to say it’s looking optimistic would be an understatement. While the evidentiary waters remain fairly murky, we'll attempt to tease out some fact from the fungal folklore…

  50. Exploring Tantric Tradition by Skye Forrester
    Exploring Tantric Tradition by Skye Forrester

    Before we delve into the exquisitely brain-bending world of Tantra, let's address its most pressing myth: Tantra isn't all about sex; except when it is. The idea that this ancient spiritual practice is drenched in obscenities, not fit for mixed company, or designed to make you a master of the boudoir is a fairly recent, 20th century idea born, ironically, in the conservative West. The more accurate view of Tantra is that it's an ancient Eastern spiritual tradition of principles, rituals and techniques for cultivating a full and conscious life. 

    We speak to Tantric teachers, Akira Devi and Sy Tzu, about sex, ego, energy and the incredible power of Tantra. 

  51. Repairing Leaky Gut Syndrome by Sonja Hindley
    Repairing Leaky Gut Syndrome by Sonja Hindley
    Leaky Gut Syndrome describes a condition where the intestinal lining becomes more porous. The medical term is 'hyperpermeable intestines'. This means larger, undigested food molecules and other forms of waste that your body normally doesn't allow through, can flow into your bloodstream. It also includes bacteria (good and harmful), toxins, and food antigens (inflammatory agents), yeast, and other forms of waste particles to enter the blood stream. The result is wide spread and chronic inflammation that can initiate an over reactive immune response in the body.
