ARE YOU GETTING YOUR 5-A-DAY?

1. Al Cooke 230x345

A new talk and demonstration aimed at promoting awareness of well- being in ourselves. Come and sample great tasting fruit and veg made before your very eyes as Alan shows you how to put together some great tasting concoctions. According to the British Dietary Association fresh, frozen, dried and canned fruit and vegetables all count. Also, 100% fruit or vegetable juice, pure fruit juice smoothies and pulses count. Remember that potatoes, yam, plantain, and cassava do not count towards your five-a-day because they are starchy foods.
Given the many health benefits of eating more fruits and vegetables, we should all be trying to meet the government’s ‘five-a-day’ target. Yet as a nation we eat less than three portions of fruit and veg a day, with only 15% of adults meeting the target. In children it is even less.
Why aren’t we eating enough? Perhaps people are still confused about how many portions they need a day, what counts as a portion, or even what constitutes a fruit or vegetable? This Food Fact Sheet explores some of these questions, giving you tasty examples of how to get your five-a-day.
Why are fruits and vegetables so beneficial? As well as tasting great, fruits and vegetables are incredibly versatile, packed with essential vitamins and minerals and a variety of phytochemicals (naturally occurring plant substances) that are vital for good health.
Many of these nutrients also act as powerful antioxidants, protecting the body from harmful free radicals (found in pollutants) that can cause disease.
Studies have shown that people who eat plenty of fruit and veg have a lower risk of developing many diseases, including high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease and stroke, and some cancers (including mouth, throat, stomach, colon and lung cancers).In fact, it has been estimated that diet is likely to contribute to the development of one-third of all cancers, and that eating more fruits and vegetables is the second most important cancer prevention strategy, after stopping smoking.

MAGNET THERAPY AS A COMPLEMENTARY ALTERNATIVE TO DRUGS

2. Al Cooke 230x345

As a nation we are living progressively longer and many people are now looking for alternate ways to obtain pain relief away from the conventional method of prescribed drugs.
Over 150 million people worldwide now use magnet therapy and the numbers are growing progressively. Magnet therapy consists of placing a therapeutic magnet on the body either affixing it to the skin with surgical tape, or where support may be needed, a number of magnets are secreted in a neoprene wrap before being attached to the bodywith Velcro fastening.
In his talk Alan demonstrates how this form of therapy works with some audience participation. It should be noted that this non-invasive treatment works for around 80% of people that use it. Over recent years a pulsed electrical magnetic device has become available to the market and speeds up healing time significantly. Working as a safe and effective portable machine arthritic sufferers and people with sports injuries have found this piece of kit invaluable.
Magnet therapy can also be used to promote well –being and so it is not necessary to have any kind of ailment to use it. Many people wear a magnetic bracelet and maintain that they have more energy and that their colds and flu have diminished significantly. Of course many people dismiss this fact or suggest that there is a placebo effect going on but Alan refutes this entirely by saying “ I have done a lot of work with animals using this therapy and there is no placebo effect there”.
