Nutrition, Diet And Exercise

Whether you are trying to lose weight or live an active healthy life style, nutrition and exercise are vital to your health. We have become as a whole in the western culture, a couch potato, slow moving, over weight and flaccid society. Of course there will always be that smaller percentage of people who get it right and remain fit and healthy. But those that do, make a conscious effort at it with diet and exercise. Well done if you are in that category!

Part of the problem is that because we as humans have it ingrained in us to constantly change things, we are the only creatures that invent food. No other animal or insect does this and they don’t have the diseases humans do unless we have poisoned their environment. We have so much in the way of processed food that have little nutrient value, that we pack on the pounds and become slower moving.

Better Health Starts With Nature: Add Juicing To Your Diet

The process of extracting juice from fruits and vegetables is known as juicing. Juicing is a great way to get a tasty beverage from foods you enjoy, while gaining health benefits, such as vitamins and nutrients. Juicing can be done manually or with a machine. Which ever method you choose, the tips in this article should help you.

Don’t leave out vegetables from your regular diet just because you’re getting them in your juice. Even fresh juice doesn’t provide all of the same benefits as eating whole vegetables, especially when it comes to fiber. Juicing should be used to add to your daily vegetable consumption, not to replace it.

Do not overuse vegetables that are high in oxalic acid. This acid is a contributor to kidney stones and can impact osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis. Vegetables such as rhubarb, char, beets and spinach contain lots of oxalic acid. Use them in moderation and avoid mixing with broccoli or other high calcium food to maintain prevention.

Give yourself an area in the fridge just for your juicing ingredients. Maybe they’ll get their own produce drawer, or half a shelf, but making room is important. When you see that space become empty you will know that you’re running out of food, and you’ll also have a much easier time putting it away after shopping.

An Insider’s Guide to Natural Skin Care

Natural skin care products may be the answer if you are concerned about the chemicals in most commercial cosmetic products. Some of these chemicals may be toxic enough to actually accelerate the aging process, which is the opposite of what you are trying to accomplish with your skin care. Even in these days of increased regulation and consumer watchdog groups, there are a number of new products introduced each year that still contain damaging chemicals.

Almost nine hundred toxic chemicals have been found in commercial cosmetic products by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health. The Cancer Coalition has stated that cosmetic and personal care products pose a higher threat of cancer than even smoking cigarettes. Compounding the problem is the vast amount of incorrect information distributed by marketing departments to attract new customers.

Fabulous Food: Fungi

Mushrooms. Earthy, elegant, rich, meaty….. Extraordinary.

Mushrooms fall into the love/hate category. You either love ‘em or …… not so much. Kinda like George W, Eminem, country music, and Jim Carey. No middle ground. Regardless of which group you inhabit, mushrooms have long been the subject of great fascination. They are found the world over and date back throughout man’s history. In a Jurassic Park-like moment, a scientist recently found a mushroom encased in tree sap that is many millions of years old.

In ancient times, Egyptians were so enamored with mushrooms that they called them sons of gods, sent to earth on bolts of thunder and declared them food fit only for Royalty. No commoner was permitted to touch them, much less eat them. The Romans were obsessed with fungi and passed laws declaring mushrooms as “the food of the Gods.” In medieval Ireland, mushrooms were regarded as umbrellas for leprechauns and even the gastronomically challenged British had their own legends about mushrooms. They believed that mushrooms should be harvested only during full moons to be edible.

Of the over 40,000 varieties of mushrooms, there are the gastronomically pleasurable, the hallucinogenic, and the deadly. Famous victims of mushroom poisoning include: Buddha, Roman Emperors Tiberius and Claudius, an entire banquet party of guests of the Emperor Nero, Alexander I of Russia, Pope Clement II, and King Charles V of France. Edible mushrooms are a very small number in the fungus category. The vast majority of mushrooms are either tough, bitter, and tasteless, or they are so rare that they are not worthy of interest as food.

Wanna to Live to 100? Try the OK Diet from Okinawa

May's Organic Garden and Restaurant 125

Okinawa is an island located south of mainland Japan and is known as the site of the largest U.S. military amphibious operation during the Second World War. Today, it is better known as the source of the “Okinawa Diet” — a simple yet effective weight loss program. The Okinawa Diet is about eating plenty of plant-based food which include large quantities of tofu and locally grown vegetables. This eating plan also prescribes the consumption of different varieties of fish rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, seaweed, and other organic products that are high in protein, rich in calcium, and low in fat. In fact, it is not unusual to find Okinawans who are at least 100 years old. The island has been recognized as having the most number of centegenarians in the entire world. To this day, the incidence of heart disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer is still rare in the island.
The growing problem of being overweight and obese in the United States has made the Okinawan Diet very appealing. Many overweight individuals have tried taking a diet pill to minimize hunger pangs and , in the process, reduce food intake. Other weight loss diet pill formulas work by preventing the absorption of fat into the body, most of which come from fat-laden meats.

Learn What Foods Will Infuse Your Body With Energy

Learn What Foods Will Infuse Your Body With Energy

Do you want to know how to feel good? Do you want to be vibrant for a long time? Take care of your body and it will take care of you.

Digestion takes probably more energy than anything else. The average meal takes 3 hours and 30 minutes to digest if combined properly. Incorrectly combined food can sometimes take up to 14 hours to digest. This is a very powerful way to conserve energy.

Take note: Recall the last time you had a huge meal…a huge meal when you felt so full you could hardly move. That doesn’t make you feel like going out and running a marathon, does it? How often do you feel like going out and running a marathon after eating a huge steak?

How would you like to learn something interesting? Starches and proteins require different mediums to digest in the stomach. One requires acid in the stomach to digest and the other alkaline. Now anyone with even a basic knowledge of chemistry knows that acids and alkalines cancel each other out.

If you want to have more energy you need to learn to properly combine your foods.

You’ve probably heard people say you need to eat more vegetables. I heard that too for a long time. It didn’t motivate me to go out and eat it. It wasn’t until I understood that food is literally the building blocks of all the substances of your body that I understood the importance of it. What you eat literally becomes your brain, your liver, your kidneys, your skin and your eyes. This is powerful. What you put in to yourself becomes part of your body.

If 70-80% of your body is water, what does it make sense to eat? Foods which have a 70-80% water content. Vegetables are the most important food you will feed yourself in your lifetime. Vegetables will cause your energy to increase, your skin to look brighter, your eyes to sparkle, your energy to rise and your libido to increase. Vegetables are high in almost every substance known to be essential to the building of the body and life.

For the next 7 days eat a salad with every meal.

See, would you take a green shiny apple, spray it with fly spray, then eat it? You know how ridiculous that sounds. Would you eat it? Of course not. Yet that’s what’s happening to our food every day. Our fruits and vegetables are now being treated with pesticides and industrial strength sprays that are poisonous to the delicate insides of our body. Some foods are now being treated with radiation. It’s now proven conclusively that radiation contributes to cancer.

If you tried describing sex to an alien, they probably wouldn’t understand it until they experienced it. They wouldn’t understand it until they did it. You won’t understand the power of making at least 50% of your diet vegetables until you take this and do it. Vegetables are around for a reason, and for the same reason there are no hamburger trees!

Organic food contains up to 3 times the amount of nutrients of conventional fruit and vegetables. How would you like to eat spinach and have the nutrients of 3 times the amount? I certainly would. As food grows, it’s draws nutrients from the ground. The better the quality of soil, the more nutrients can be drawn into the food. Research reports many of our foods are missing vitamins, minerals, enzymes etc because of depleted soils. Buy organic food wherever possible.

The brain knows when you are full, because the stomach sends a signal to a part of the brain called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is 12 minutes “behind” the stomach. There is literally a 12 minute delay between being full, and your body knowing you are full. When you stop eating before you are full, you give your body a chance to recover energy.

Sugar is widely considered to be one of the most dangerous substances for the body. Avoid it at all costs. There are a few other ingredients to keep away from if you are serious about your health and energy. Salt dehydrates the body. It’s not widely known that black pepper is 17 more times irritating to the liver than alcohol.

That brings us to the next point, caffeine. I understand people love their coffee. I was once a coffee drinker, before I became interested in health. Caffeine gives us energy because it opens up the capillaries in the brain. The same effect can be had by deep breathing. The challenge comes when the effect of caffeine wears off. The capillaries in the brain restrict causing us to feel lethargic. Caffeine works because the body has to “speed up” to cope with the dose of poison it’s been given.

Unfortunately, while alcohol has perceived benefits, it is pure fermentation and decay, rotting sugar. It is absolutely toxic. There are other things you also need to be aware of. White rice is treated with bleach. It starts out brown and is bleached to become white. What about white flour? It’s also bleached. What about sugar or pasta? They too have been bleached to give a false sense of purity. Would you go to your laundry cupboard and drink bleach? That’s preposterous, yet most of us eat food treated with bleach. Bleach has the effect of ripping the stomach lining – an effect that is similar to the drug ecstasy. A report out of Germany states “they’re putting fine pieces of cracked glass now in ecstasy, those pieces have the effect of putting finite tears in the stomach lining enabling the substance to enter the bloodstream more quickly”.

Do you like food? Amazingly, most people I interview say “Yes”. What’s the purpose of eating food? While it tastes good and feels good, physiologically eating is the building blocks of the body. Skin, eyes, internal organs, joints, white and red blood cells, they are all built out of the food and liquid that goes into our body. So logically, what’s one of the most powerful ways to change the appearance your eyes, skin and strength of the organs?

Change the building blocks that you choose to take in. Literally improve the food you eat. There’s an old saying that goes “There was no hamburger in the garden of Eden”. Religion aside, when your body starts getting the food it wants and needs, it will start to desire healthy foods. Try it; you’ll literally make new food choices.

Due to the common diet, most people’s bodies are full of bacteria; these bacteria are what are responsible for cravings for terrible food. It’s not the built in mechanism of the body to crave these substances, it’s the bacteria! No one smokes a cigarette for the first time and says “Oh boy, this tastes great!” Over time, the body learns to adapt to the poisons put in.

As you give your body more and more wholesome food and treat yourself with respect, you will naturally crave better and better food. There are plenty of delicious recipes around, recipes that will leave you with energy for hours rather than tired and bloated. It’s just that very few people know about them.

Eating natural food will also return your body to a more wholesome weight. Have you ever had the case of eating a big meal and immediately afterwards having to go and raid the cupboard? Why is that? The brain has a built in survival mechanism that when it senses the body is lacking nutrients, it tells us to get hungry. That is the sense of hunger is the body telling us it needs nutrients. If you suffer from the problem of being frequently hungry, it’s because the hunger mechanism is literally turned on all the time, the body is in a constant state of asking for nutrients. Due to our poor diets and low nutrients in most of our foods now, many people find themselves living in a case of constant hunger.

Ideally, you should invest in a “juicer”. A juicer takes all the nutrients in food and releases it for the body to absorb readily and quickly. A glass of vegetable juice is more filling than an entire pizza because of the concentrated amount of nutrients.

A high urine pH value indicates struvite crystal formation in your cat’s urinary tract.

Candida overgrowth in the body may be the precursor to immune dysfunction causing all kinds of illness and allergies to food, pollen and multiple chemical sensitivities. Antibiotics, sugar and refined carbohydrates help create and grow this problem.

Candida lives in balance with beneficial bacteria in the colon. The colon is vital for nutrient absorption and toxin elimination and one of its key contributions is the ability to break down the foods we eat. It is the first line of defense for the immune system.

Food is broken down in the colon with the help of enzymes, yeast and beneficial bacteria that live there; they help keep the colon healthy.

Drinking fresh fruit and vegetables is one of the best things you can do to improve your health and wellness. When beginning to incorporate juicing into your lifestyle it is important that you research the health benefits derived from different types of fruits and vegetables so that you can make the best juices for your particular health needs.

Try to prepare your juice immediately before you plan to consume or serve it. Juices lose their nutritional content quite quickly, meaning a stored juice is not as healthy as a fresh glass of juice. If you must store your juice, do so in an air tight container and store it for as short a period of time as possible.

Juicing is a great way to pack more nutritional content into your diet.
Combining fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables into delicious juices is both fun and easy. A few tall glasses of juice a day can mean a world of difference to your health. If you’re not sure where to begin, this article can help you get started in juicing.

Make sure that you are properly “feeding” certain foods into your juicer properly. Some do not “juice” so well if you just shove them in. One example is leafy vegetables. Try to form these kinds of vegetables into little compact balls or rolls before you insert them into the juicer.

Fresh juice is best. To get the most from your juices, it is crucial that you drink them, as soon as they are made. Fresh juice does not keep well. When juice is exposed to air, it immediately starts losing nutrients and begins the spoiling process. If you must keep juice for later, use an air-tight container, preferably made from glass.

Therapy is key to a stress-free life

Therapy is key to a stress-free life


People often encounter situations that can bring them stress or anxiety.
Sometimes, these tough situations can bring out the best in a person. In some cases, stress can also lead to more serious cases of anxiety, or even anxiety attacks.

But what is an anxiety attack? Since anxiety is closely related to being stressed out, it is also caused by the person being worried, scared and uneasy. This type of anxiety attack is the extreme reaction of the body, both physically and psychologically. By being extremely worried, uneasy, or any of the mentioned causes, the person tends to have an attack. How would we know when anxiety attacks?

Detoxifying is one of the most powerful treat you could give your body. With today’s environment and lifestyles, constant exposure and intake of pollutants and toxins coming from the air, water, and food we eat can undermine our health whether immediately or eventually. It explains why most, if not all, people who are regularly on a high-fat, low-fiber diet feel less active, fatigued, obese, and develop degenerative diseases sooner within their lifetime.

Submitting yourself to a detox program is not only healthy, it is rewarding for your system by giving it a break from waste substances it doesn’t’ need in the first place. Going on a detox diet means skipping the usual junk foods that provide you nothing more than harmful fats and substances.

Many people might try to understand depression. Many people may try to label it and identify the reasons for why it exists.

Juicing Can Be Fun And Healthy Too

It is important that anybody who eats food that you prepare gets all of the proper nutrients. This is crucial especially with people that do not eat a wide variety of foods. One unique way to provide for these people is through juicing and making your own homemade healthy beverages.

If you can’t find organic produce to use in your juices, make sure that you peel your fruits and vegetables before juicing them. Most of the pesticides on conventionally grown produce is on the skin, and washing isn’t enough to remove all of the residue. Peeling will eliminate the bulk of these contaminants from your food.

If you’d like to add protein supplements to your juice, wait a few days before you start. Your system will be getting used to the juice (which is easy as it’s half-way digested by the time it gets to your stomach!) and flushing out toxins, so give it a chance to catch up first.

MALNOURISHED… While Eating A Full Plate Of Food?

MALNOURISHED… While Eating A Full Plate Of Food?

This is a concept that you may have difficulty in accepting. Nonetheless it is one that I have been ‘preaching’ for years and has now been confirmed by studies showing people in the US, Canada and the UK are amongst the most malnourished in the world. This is the case in spite of obesity reaching epidemic proportions in the US. Malnourishment is without doubt a leading factor in a wide variety of health problems including cancers.
Does this mean that overweight people are eating all the food to the detriment of the rest of the population? Not at all! In fact, obese people figure prominently amongst those people who are malnourished.
I can sense you thinking… “That’s a crazy statement”. After all, when you think of someone being malnourished your mind flashes to pictures which you have seen on TV of starving children in Africa.
How can an overweight person be malnourished?

Mold has taken hold! Not that the microbes have reached out and grabbed us, but rather they have captured our attention. A rash of recent high profile media stories have petrified many people with concerns for both their health and finances. While it is true in some situations that variations and concentrations of mold can kill us both physically and financially, in the vast majority of cases mold problems can be remedied simply and economically.
Molds exist naturally all around us. Molds play a vital role in the decomposition of organic waste such as in a compost pile. Other molds are essential in the creation of some of our finest foods, such as wine and cheese. But, when mold growth occurs in an inappropriate place or in extreme concentration, the health of our home and family can be at risk.
All molds need two basic ingredients to grow, food and water. The favorite food of mold is cellulose. In our home, cellulose is a common constituent. Wood, paper, cotton, and drywall are plentiful in construction and are great sources of cellulose. Water is everywhere in our homes, both on the surfaces and in the air.

Using your juicer to make fresh fruit or vegetable juices daily can be a wonderful addition to your health care plan. Most people who start juicing report that they have more energy, feel better and even lose weight. Here are some helpful tips to help you get more from it.

A great juicing tip that can help extend the life of your juicer, is to only use your juice on a hard surface. By using your juicer on a hard surface you’ll insure that there won’t be any vibrations. Vibrations, no matter how small, can damage your juicer over time.

Get Rid Of Mucoid Plaque With Ejuva Cleanse


Are you suffering negative health effects from accumulated mucoid plaque?

The Ejuva Cleanse is a 4-6 stage intense all natural cleanse program designed to rid your body of this waste and restore your bodily systems to its optimum level. The term mucoid plaque, coined by naturopath Richard Anderson, is the product of years of accumulated waste and mucus solidifying and adhering to the walls of organs.

The accumulation of this plaque can prevent digestion, nutritional absorption and is possibly the source of many pathogens. There is much scientific debate as to the legitimacy of this plaque but naturopath practitioners recognize it as a real threat to our health.

After years of exposure to the various toxins, preservatives and pesticides, this plaque becomes thick and difficult for the body to eliminate without assistance. The components of the Ejuva Cleanse are much more potent than eating fresh fruits and vegetables alone. In fact the components are so effective that people who have been eating 100% raw foods for years still experience significant mucoid plaque elimination after cleansing with the Ejuva program.

Juicing is a great way to get a tasty beverage from foods you enjoy, while gaining health benefits, such as vitamins and nutrients. Juicing can be done manually or with a machine. Which ever method you choose, the tips in this article should help you.

In regards to juicing, it is important to consider the fact that you will see vastly different results in eating a product outright as opposed to consuming it in juice form.

When it comes to juicing, one thing that you want to keep in mind is the fact that you do not need to depend on multivitamins or other supplements as much when using your juicer on a regular basis. This is beneficial because it will help you financially and give you a fun and tasty way to obtain the same nutrients.

It’s unfortunate but many people have digestive systems that find it hard to break down food and absorb nutrients – this can be caused by poor levels of stomach acid, toxic substances in the gut, insufficient production of digestive enzymes among other reasons.

Next Organic Berlin 2015

Many people who are interested in improving their health have opted to purchase a juicer and have reaped the benefits of juicing. Juicing fruits and vegetables offers many advantages, such as greater nutritional absorption and a more efficient way of consuming the daily 6-8 fruits and veggies that many health experts recommend.

When juicing leafy vegetables like spinach, ball the leaves together. If you form your vegetable leafs into a ball, like crumpled paper for instance, you will give a more solid mass for the juicer to work with. This will prevent small pieces of leaves from showing up in your juice and affecting the consistency.

If you can’t find organic produce to use in your juices, make sure that you peel your fruits and vegetables before juicing them. Most of the pesticides on conventionally grown produce is on the skin, and washing isn’t enough to remove all of the residue. Peeling will eliminate the bulk of these contaminants from your food.

Top Teeth Care Tips You Must Live By

One of the most important parts of our body that we should take proper care of is our mouths. It is vital that we maintain good, if not an excellent, oral health as this can affect the way we interact with other people, and other people’s interaction with us. Poor oral hygiene can lead to bad breath, and bad breath may result to low self confidence.
The most basic way of caring for one’s teeth is through brushing and flossing. A person must brush his teeth at least twice a day, and should floss regularly to prevent accumulation of food debris and plaque in between teeth. Simple and thorough brushing and flossing can help effectively avoid dental problems. It is, however, necessary that one learns the proper way of tooth brushing. Doing it in the wrong way may reduce its effectiveness and may even cause damage to teeth and gums.

MEDICAL TESTIMONY ON ALCOHOL.

Dr. Ezra M. Hunt says: “The capacity of the alcohols for impairment of functions and the initiation and promotion of organic lesions in vital parts, is unsurpassed by any record in the whole range of medicine. The facts as to this are so indisputable, and so far granted by the profession, as to be no longer debatable . Changes in stomach and liver, in kidneys and lungs, in the blood-vessels to the minutest capillary, and in the blood to the smallest red and white blood disc disturbances of secretion, fibroid and fatty degenerations in almost every organ, impairment of muscular power, impressions so profound on both nervous systems as to be often toxic these, and such as these, are the oft manifested results. And these are not confined to those called intemperate.”

Professor Youmans says: “It is evident that, so far from being the conservator of health, alcohol is an active and powerful cause of disease, interfering, as it does, with the respiration, the circulation and the nutrition; now, is any other result possible?”

Crushing Carbs Without Atkins

Crushing Carbs Without Atkins

A few years ago, health fanatics were touting the benefits of cutting carbohydrates. That meant breakfast without cereal, Asian cuisine without rice and burgers without buns. Pasta? Forget it.

Now whole grains and fruits – especially organic – are at the top of the list. That said, people still want to lose weight; they are just looking for new ways to do so.

Some dieters abandoned Atkins and other low-carb diets because they ended up eating the same things over and over. Others could not stay on it because they had to severely limit their favorite foods.

But many couldn’t stay on their low-carb diets for another reason: They crave sugar. Sugar and high-glycemic foods, such as potatoes, white bread and pastas made from white flour, are habit-forming because they evoke cravings and create cyclic demand on glucose and insulin production in the body. This demand creates both physical and psychological addictions.

Feeling Sluggish? What’s The Best Natural Method To Detox Or Cleanse The Body For A Real Pick–Me-Up?

Feeling Sluggish? What’s The Best Natural Method To Detox Or Cleanse The Body For A Real Pick–Me-Up?

Feeling Sluggish? What’s The Best Natural Method To Detox Or Cleanse The Body For A Real Pick–Me-Up?

Feeling Sluggish? What’s The Best Natural Method To Detox Or Cleanse The Body For A Real Pick–Me-Up?

I would hazard to guess that the majority of the population feels somewhat sluggish on a regular basis. If one goes through this condition for a long time, it may begin to feel like this has become a normal situation for you and you become used to it. But not finding the underlying cause and treatment can be a hazard to your health.

If you are feeling sluggish then it is a warning sign that something is not right and an immediate investigation as to the cause is in order. There can be many different reasons for this condition.

Here are some of the causes of sluggishness:

1) Diet is of great importance. With all the pesticides and chemicals in our food today and nutrient deficient soil, it can be difficult to get the nutrients we need to live a healthy life. It is possible to regain good health by changing your diet to eating organic foods that include eating more raw fruits and vegetables and less cooked food and sugar products. You may want to consider good supplements to obtain nutrients you might not otherwise get. You may argue that organic food is so expensive, but consider this; you may save a few bucks on cheaper packaged food that may be loaded with preservatives, nitrates etc., but what is your health worth? How long do you expect your body to function correctly if you put degraded fuel into it? You’ve seen what it can do to a car. It is also so with your body. If you take a close look at healthy looking celebrities that are trim and fit, they have a secret you don’t. Being that their income is dependent on their personality and good looks they are forced to forgo the usual diets of the average American. They work out, eat smaller portions and include a lot more raw foods, plus they drink a lot of water and this brings up the next subject.

Eat Your Way To Healthy Hormones

(NC)-Reaching for a mid-afternoon candy bar instead of ripe fruit or raw vegetables can have serious consequences on our physical – and emotional health. According to a recent survey, 70% of Canadians are not getting the recommended five to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables in their diet. As a result, poor eating habits are making Canadians “hormonally” unhealthy.
Poor eating habits not only have a serious impact on our overall health, energy levels and immune system, but the wrong food choices can be emotionally draining too, according to Sam Graci, nutritional researcher and author of the new book – The Food Connection: The Right Food at the Right Time.
Eating refined or processed carbo-hydrates, which are high in fat, salt, sugar or artificial sweeteners sends insulin levels soaring and throws our hormones off balance. Too much of the insulin hormone slows down the growth hormone (GH) which controls our sense of well-being. It also increases the amount of the stress hormone cortisol in the body, which speeds up the aging process.
But you can eat your way to healthy hormones. Next time you have the munchies or that mid-afternoon craving, reach for ripe, colourful fruits, vegetables, a handful of nuts or seeds, or a nutritional supplement such as greens+™ – all of which are packed with phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals the body needs to stay healthy and keep hormone levels – stress, energy and moods – in check.
It’s not only what you eat that will keep your hormones balanced – consider when you fuel up. Eating five small meals a day – three meals and two snacks – will help avoid the peaks and valleys of moods that can accompany big meals. Avoid skipping meals and waiting more than three and a half hours in between meals since this will zap our energy hormones and spoil our mood.

Harvesting From the Water

Harvesting From the Water

Exploring Food, Connecting Communities

Conventional farming makes people plant crops over a field of land, give it water to help it grow then harvest it when the time comes. This was practiced for many years until the demand for food increased which made scientists rely on other techniques to increase production.

Such practices made the use of pesticides and herbicides, fertilizers, contaminated sewage sludge and irradiation. Since these methods are harmful to the health, people have gone back to organic farming that does not use any of these methods.

Technology has found another way to increase crop production without jeopardizing the health of people and the environment. This can be done by hydroponics farming.

Plants need water to survive but this is only one ingredient. The other and most important are the nutrients. Scientists have discovered that it is only when this is diffused into the water system that the roots of the crops consume it making it grow.

Believe It, You Are What You Eat!

Believe It, You Are What You Eat!

“You are what you eat” —- this often-used phrase has come to describe the belief that a person’s totality, including his health, appearance, mood, and thoughts, is shaped by the food he eats.
Anthelme Brillat-Savarin wrote, in Physiologie du Gout, ou Meditations de Gastronomie Transcendante, 1826: “Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es.” meaning “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are.” In an essay entitled Concerning Spiritualism and Materialism, 1863/4, Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach wrote: “Der Mensch ist, was er ißt,” which translates into English as “man is what he eats.”

Actually, neither Brillat-Savarin or Feuerbach meant for their quotations to be taken literally. They were merely stating that that the food that one eats has a bearing on one’s state of mind and health. The actual phrase didn’t emerge as part of the common English language until some time later. In the ’20s and ’30s, the nutritionist Victor Lindlahr, who was a strong believer in the idea that food controls health, developed what he called as the Catabolic Diet. The said diet was accepted and gained some adherents. Lindlahr’s theories became so popular that even advertising was shaped by his nutritional dogmas. A 1923 advertisement for beef released through the Bridgeport Telegraph had the following message: “Ninety per cent of the diseases known to man are caused by cheap foodstuffs. You are what you eat.”

And The Healthy Diet For This Week Is?

And The Healthy Diet For This Week Is?

Before we go any further the word diet does not necessarily mean an act of losing weight but a style of eating. If you follow a healthy diet you will lose weight naturally and you will get into a lifestyle that will keep you weight stable.
Every week a “new healthy diet” comes out by some expert and it often appears that there are as many “healthy diets” as there are experts. Taking the cynical viewpoint these experts have only hit the world with a new regime to sell their latest book, DVD or new line of health food products. OK, everybody has different dietary needs due to their body type, metabolism, and genetic makeup but there are some basic guidelines that can be followed to keep to a healthy diet.
One of the first steps to a healthy diet is to rid your body of all the rubbish that is already there. These are the toxins that have built up over time. Well one way of doing this is to go down to your local pharmacy and get a pre-packaged detox kit and follow that for a specified length of time. Or you could buy antioxidants in supplement form. These are both workable quick fixes but you really need to make you diet a lifestyle.

You may have heard about toxins, detoxification, cleansing, purifying – they are all related to detox diets.

Toxins are harmful chemicals affecting your body. They are all around you (in your food, water, air) and inside you (as waste products of metabolism). Your body eliminates most toxins and the rest are stored within body fat.

These stored toxins combined with stress can affect your health in very unpleasant ways:

– weight gain
– headaches
– feelings of fatigue and weakness
– heartburn
– sore muscles and skin

Learning About Health In The Garden

Healthy Plants don’t get disease. The same goes for the Human Body.

Healthy soil feeds the plants. Just like the body, if the plants get the right nutrients, they will be able to fight off any disease.

When you treat a disease with a chemical, you may kill the disease, but the underlying condition that created the weakness, allowing the disease, is most likely still present. It will just manifest itself as another disease or symptom.

When you create health through nutrition, the plant will become strong and its immune system, which is more capable and nuanced at fighting disease than any chemical, will eliminate the disease naturally. The plant is now using the disease-fighting mechanism that Mother Nature gave it and that science cannot recreate artificially.

Don’t forget that using chemicals comes with many health hazards for you, the microorganisms in the soil, and the wildlife.

Microorganisms in the soil, in the human body and in all of life are so very critical for health.

Why are the good bacteria important?

It might take a while to work out what their triggers are, but once you have removed them from your child’s diet, it could really help with managing the symptoms.

Make sure when you are buying bread that you purchase something that says “whole wheat” and not simply “seven grain” or otherwise. Whole wheat bread is great for you because it is a complex carbohydrate, meaning your body expends energy to process it and it doesn’t rapidly get absorbed by the bloodstream. However, unless bread packaging specifically says “whole wheat,” you may not be choosing the right bread.

Living with hair loss can be very depressing and destroys confidence.
We understand how frustrating this can be. After reading this informational guide, you will gain a better understanding of ways that you can work towards preventing this from happening to you and we will help you to learn how to recover from hair loss.

Stress causes our body to release toxins. Stress is caused by many different things in our daily lives and through releasing these toxins, it directly causes change in our bodies. Hair loss is one of these changes, and while hair loss is also hereditary, stress is one of the combined factors that can affect hair loss.

Avoid using shampoos or conditioners that aren’t organic. Shampoos and conditioners that are not organic contain a lot of harmful chemicals in them that are bad for your scalp and your hair. These products can cause hair loss and also prevent hair from growing back in once you lose it.

Be sure you are getting enough protein in your diet. If your follicles aren’t getting enough protein, they move into a resting phase in which no new hair growth takes place. If new hair isn’t growing in, the old hair will fall out. Eating a balanced diet with enough protein can prevent this cycle.

Today’s lifestyle leaves us open to a daily chemical assault, from the air we breathe to the water we drink, and the skincare and hair-care products we use on a daily basis.
It is not known what the long-term effects of these chemicals will be, but one thing’s for sure, it can’t be good.

Some people are unaware of the huge amounts of additives in their food, water and personal care products. Some are too busy to care, and others have the attitude “Yes I know, it’s awful, but what can you do?”

The informed, wise people out there though, are taking a different view. Any species that fails to live in harmony with it’s natural environment will eventually make itself extinct. Fact. It’s nature. If human beings carry on the way they are going, they will indeed end up extinct..

Start Growing Healthy Children Before Getting Pregnant


When I was in my early 20’s, I read Adele Davis’s book, “Let’s Eat Right To Keep fit.” I learned from her that “you are what you eat.” I also learned that our babies are what we eat while we are pregnant, and then are what they eat once they are born.
If you nurse your babies, then they continue to be what you eat as long as you are nursing them. My bible during my first pregnancy over 38 years ago was “Let’s Have Healthy Children,” also by Adele Davis. I started to follow her guidelines way before getting pregnant, knowing that my health had a big effect on my baby’s health.

There is much more information about good nutrition available today, and I want to encourage anyone who wants to have healthy children to start early in learning about and implementing a healthy way of eating. Educating yourself regarding good nutrition is a major part of good parenting. However, a good rule of thumb is, if they didn’t eat it 200 years ago, don’t eat it now! This means no fast food, no packaged food – including sodas, cakes and candies – no preservatives, no fruits and vegetables grown with pesticides or artificial fertilizers, or animals grown with hormones and fed food grown with pesticides. It also means no smoking or drinking. It means no caffeine. If you want healthy children, you need to put pure, clean organic food into your body before you get pregnant and continue throughout your pregnancy. Of course, then you want to continue to feed yourself and your family clean food once your children are born.

Everyone must have experienced being forced to eat vegetables during their childhood days. As a child, it is quiet difficult to understand the reason behind the importance of eating vegetables often. But, as a grown-up, one learns that the body needs a great amount of nutrients to support its vital functioning and these nutrients are mainly obtained from the food that is being eaten. Since vegetables have the most nutrient content among the many substances available for eating it is the best source for the components that are needed by the body.

How do I choose a detox method?

If you are trying a detox for the first time, it is best to take a gentle, gradual approach. The detox diet plan is a basic detox diet that many people recommend.

Detox diets can target the different organ systems involved in detoxification: the skin, liver, kidneys, colon, lungs and lymph system. A natural health care practitioner can design a program that suits your needs by targeting specific organ systems. For example, a person with a skin condition may benefit from a program that addresses the liver, intestines, and skin.

Other forms of detox include juice fasts, macrobiotic diet, colon cleanse, and liver flush. If you can’t go without meat, at least avoid red meat, and consider steering clear of dairy and wheat for maximum benefits.

If you are a heavy smoker or take drugs regularly, it will be a huge shock to the system to give up at the same time as detoxing. Take one step at a time – giving up your particular vice will be a detox in itself.

Forty years ago I became very interested in health and nutrition. I had been a sickly child and I had hated being sick. As a low-energy young adult, I had decided to do something about my health, so after reading some wonderful books on nutrition, I proceeded to completely change what I ate. I started to shop at the only little health food store in Los Angeles – Whole Foods was years away! I threw out all packaged food and ate only natural, fresh organic products – when I could get them. I made a decision that if people didn’t eat something 100 years ago, I wasn’t going to eat it now. I was extremely pleased with the improvement in my health and energy.
When I had children, I wanted them to be healthy, so I made sure that I had only healthy food in the house. By the time my children went to school, they were not happy with the food choices in their lunch boxes. Why couldn’t they have Twinkies and fluffy white bread like the other kids? Why couldn’t they have Oreos instead of the healthy cookies that I made for them? They didn’t like being “weird.” When we went to the market and they wanted junk, I told them they needed to buy it with their own money – that I was never going to spend money on junk food. It didn’t take them long to know that I meant it and to stop asking.

Tips On How To Properly Juice 4

Extracting juice from fruits and vegetables is an easy and affordable way to get vitamins, minerals and nutrients into a consumable form. Both adults and children can benefit from this simple process, making a healthy lifestyle even more accessible. Whether juicing with a hand-operated grinder, a home kitchen appliance, or a commercial device, the benefits will be obvious and immediate.

The pith on citrus fruit, the white part between the skin and the pulp, is full of nutrients that are fabulous for you, so make sure to pull it out of the fruit with the pulp when you’re juicing. It has bioflavonoids and tons of vitamin C, so bulk up on it during flu season!

Substitute meals on occasion with your juicing. There are multiple servings of fruit and vegetables going into your mix and this can equate to a very healthy meal. Occasionally substituting a juice blend for a meal will reduce the amount of nontraditional ingredients you are consuming from processed foods and you will get more than enough nutrition.

When it comes to juicing, one thing that you want to keep in mind is that you need to inform yourself about the signs of aging for all of the ingredients that you will be using. This is important so that you do not cause a health risk to you or anybody consuming your juice.

Are you interested to lose weight? Do you want to burn fat but can’t find the time to go to the gym? Do you want to lose weight while eating your favorite food? If the answers to these questions are yes, then Paleo Diet is right for you.

Paleo Diet is inspired with the Caveman diet, or what the prehistoric men ate back then. Prior to the advent of fastfood and processed food, men have been scavenging food by hunting and gathering. With hunting, they were able to obtain meat and seafood. With gathering, it yielded fruits and vegetables. Paleo Diet is just imitating the kind of food our ancestors used to have during the Stone Age. However, this does not imply that we get to hunt for animals and plant our own fruits and vegetables. This just shows that, in order to attain our much coveted weight, it is important that we follow their food intake.

You Are What You Eat: What Everyone Should Know About Nutrition

Nutrition is often misunderstood as quite a simple and easy thing. However, without the right knowledge about nutrition, you could be missing essential parts to your diet. This article will provide you with the crucial parts included in a healthy nutrition plan. You don’t miss important events, why miss essential elements of our diet?

Most bad habits are psychological and this is equally true for nutrition. All of the battles are actually inside your mind. One example of this is removing the reward system that you have set up with yourself. You want to try to remove the associations between food and happiness. Food is fuel, not happiness.

To lower your risk of depression naturally, eat foods that contain Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 helps your body to regulate serotonin levels, and serotonin imbalance is a leading cause of depression. Examples of foods high in vitamin B6 include wheat germ, chicken breast, and asparagus. Consuming B6 rich foods is especially important during the winter.

Keep in mind that a low calorie diet is not the same thing as a balanced diet. It is possible to eat only carrot sticks every day and you will have a low-calorie diet yet a horrible diet nutritionally speaking. It is essential to have a balanced diet which even includes some things like fat in moderation.

What Is Toxic Black Mold?

What Is Toxic Black Mold?

What Is Toxic Black Mold?

What Is Toxic Black Mold?

Mold is a fungus growth, which starts with a microscopic spore. In a damp environment, it will spread on organic material, such as food or wood. It can be beneficial; for example, the antibiotic penicillin is a mold. Mold grows everywhere, but can become a problem when it grows in large areas inside a home, school, or workplace.

Toxic black molds can be found anywhere that dark and dank conditions permit them to grow. When you try to kill them, they take to the air, spreading themselves with no forethought to the damage they can cause. They are just trying to survive.

Spores can be inhaled, absorbed through the skin or ingested on our food. And, because some people are more susceptible than others, one person may become debilitated by exposure to mold in the home, another person sharing the same environment is essentially unaffected.

While companies boast the effectiveness of traditional flea control methods for dogs, some reports indicate that they can be toxic, and in some cases cause hot spots, allergies, and compromised immune function.

A strong immune system and high nutrient levels naturally deter fleas and other insects. In particular, the levels of B complex, zinc, selenium and antioxidants in the body and bloodstream play a large role in immune function. By feeding your animals a high-quality, natural diet, free of additives and preservatives, you improve their health and dramatically increase their protection from fleas. A healthy animal does not taste or smell as good to fleas.

The Green Food Supplement Alfalfa


The health benefits of alfalfa are largely unsupported scientifically, although there is plenty of anecdotal enthusiasm for it.
Alfalfa is highly nutritious, containing approximately 16% protein, and 8% of minerals like calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium. It also contains small amounts of the vitamins A, D, E, and K.

Alfalfa is believed to support the immune system, help in normalizing blood clotting, assist with the absorption of nutrients, alleviate hot flushes, cleanse the blood, and promote heart health.

New research also found that alfalfa sprouts and other sprouted vegetables (like broccoli and clover sprouts), may help protect new cells from DNA damage. In the trial conducted on human cells in vitro, researchers at the University of Ulster’s School of Biomedical Sciences found that whilst sprouts didn’t improve the health of already damaged DNA, it did protect cells from new damage. DNA damage is a biochemical indicator of cancer.

Lose Weight Fast – Changing Your Die

One of the most important things to do when you are trying to get in shape is taking caution of your diet. This does not take any time from your schedule and you will feel much healthier when you eat the right foods in the right quantity.

One of the best ways to change your diet is to change to an organic one. It is good to increase the fiber in your diet, which will clean out your colon of all negative weight loss inhibitors. This means that instead of eating refined or processed foods, you should eat whole grain foods like brown rice and whole wheat bread. This has more fiber and less bad fats such as trans fat and cholesterol.

You should also increase your input of protein, minerals and vitamins. To do this it is good to eat more fruits and vegetables and substitute red meat for fish and chicken. These meats have less calories and fat and still provide more protein.

Getting Candida/Yeast Under Control

After years of working with clients with candida symptomology, I have found that until the yeast (candida albicans) is brought under control, the body cannot begin to heal with efficacy. Once again, we need to look at ‘balance’. If the internal environment of the body is unbalanced, then that environment is an ideal situation for disease.

Friendly Bacteria: Candida does have a purpose! When babies are born, their intestinal tracts have about 75% lacto bacillus acidophilus and about 25% e coli bacteria which are the ‘non-friendly’ bacteria. Yeast also exists in the intestines and plays the role of assisting in breaking down proteins.
The problem occurs when these friendly and non-friendly bacteria get out of balance, thus allowing the yeast to proliferate.

Detox Liver Diet


The liver is unquestionably on of the hardest working internal organ in the body.
As part of the organs of elimination, along with the kidneys and lungs, a person would need a liver in excellent shape in order to function properly. However, the presence of chemicals and toxic materials in the environment, food products and even in medicines, the liver takes on extraordinary burden. After some time, the liver simply could not keep up with the rapid increase of harmful toxins in our body. The gradual accumulation and build up of toxic residue will combine in the bloodstream, which will result to some serious health complications.

The detox liver diet is a highly effective detoxification process that can eliminate and flush out toxins that are not only fatal to the liver but also to the other major internal organs as well. By incorporating organic fruits and raw vegetables in our diet on a daily basis, we can potentially get rid of the toxins that our bodies are exposed to. Suffering PMS or Pre-Menstrual Syndrome are actually a red flag that your liver is not capable of fully detoxifying your system. A dysfunctional liver could ultimately lead to an increased storage of toxic compounds in the body tissues, potentially lowering the immune system and triggering a host of health problems.

Olive Oil, An Ancient Gift For Health


Scientists are always looking to plants to find medicinal and therapeutic secrets.
Discoveries of natural compounds within the olive tree and olives, provide promising health and medical benefits. Organic olive oil has significant health related properties that have spanned centuries and cultures in the Mediterranean.

The Mediterranean olive dates back 6000 years and was native to Iran, Syria and Palestine (Asia Minor). From there it spread to the Mediterranean basin. It is one of the earliest known cultivated trees. According to the Bible, an olive leaf was that which a dove brought back to Noah, as an indication the great flood waters were abating.

The olive tree thrives best in a sunny position and climate. A rocky subsoil suits it well. The trunk is knotty, hard, and gnarled, the bark smooth and ash colored. Olive wood is valuable for its durability and is crafted into many items such as gourmet cooking utensils. The olive tree experiences slow growth, but it lives very long. It is reported that the olive trees on Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, are over 2000 years old. It is commonly believed the Bible passage of “the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine,” refers to the olive tree. Olive leaves are silver grey-green, and possesses the health qualities of “olive leaf extract” which is pressed from them. Extracted from olive leaves is a bitter substance named oleuropein. In the 1960’s researchers reported that oleuropein lowered blood pressure in animals, this caused immediate medicinal interest in the olive leaf. There are new studies that indicate olive leaf extract may be a natural preventative against the common cold and flu.

African Bush Doctor’s Prescription For Better Health

Bush Medicine is traditional herbal medicine- the oldest system of healing in the world. Bush medicine started in Africa about 30,000 years ago. In the African-Caribbean culture plants are referred to as “Bush” such as “fever bush” or “toothache bush and are revered for their healing and spiritual properties”. Every culture in world practiced and still practices bush medicine to treat the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual problems of the people. Today 70% of the world’s population still uses traditional herbal medicine (bush medicine) as it’s primary source of health care.

For the past 75 years medical doctors and drug companies have tried to discredit traditional herbal medicine while at the same time sending ethnobotanists all around the world to acquire the knowledge of local plants from bush doctors in order to make new pharmaceutical drugs. Often once a drug company has appropriated local plant knowledge- usually without compensating the locals in any way, they patent the plants and pressure the governments into banning the local population from having access to the plants they have depended on for millennia. Fortunately there is now a worldwide effort underway to protect local plant knowledge from unethical exploitation. People are returning to their traditional herbalists because of the failure of pharmaceutical drugs to treat chronic health problems safely and effectively.

Food Additives

food additives

I have recently noticed more of an emphasis on natural foods in my local grocery store. They have recently expanded this section of the store. You can find more organic items than ever before, and many things that are made without any food additives at all. I love to shop there, though those things do tend to cost more than everything else in the store. However, I feel that we can eat good foods to feel better, but some of those good foods are filled with things that we shouldn’t be eating. Not all additives are bad though.

What I don’t understand is why some food additives are things that I can not pronounce. The best types of these things are the ones you know and have used in the past. For example, some breads will have vinegar in the ingredient list. This type of food additives is the kind that you want to have in your diet. It is a natural way to make the bread last longer and remain fresh. Others use things like processed sugars, which really have no place in bread. Without additives, bread goes bad very quickly. However, there is no reason that you can choose which ones you wish to ingest.

But there are realistic, easy-to-implement strategies that can help you to gradually wean your children away from poor nutritional choices and toward delicious more wholesome foods.
Just Because You’ve Seen the Light….
It’s highly unlikely that your children are suddenly going to wake up one morning and stop eating junk food just because you’ve seen the light about healthy nutrition, or just because you want them to.

You also need to know how to choose the foods that will be best for your health. Depending on your daily routine, you may or may not eat at home most of the time.

Start your day with a healthy and well balanced breakfast. Studies have shown that people who don’t eat a full breakfast tend to seek carbohydrate snacks all throughout the day, and are more prone to gaining weight.

Eating at home usually involves more meal preparation time, this is important because preparing a good meal takes a lot more time than simply eating some junk food.

What is Raw Foodism?

Alternative diets have been present since time began. Today, when human beings have a greater understanding of the environment and their own bodies, there are several alternative diets that have been embraced on a worldwide basis. Raw foodism, better known as Rawism or the Raw Food Diet, is just one of the many alternate diets around today. It has grown in popularity because of the great health benefits it is said that one can derive from eating in this way.
The raw food diet arises from the concept that fruit and vegetables, when eaten in their raw state, are more beneficial for the human being. Some individuals believe that the food eaten in its raw state is more beneficial to the human body as well as making them more energetic. Therefore, the people who follow a raw food diet will largely eat uncooked food. These individuals also eat unprocessed food or organic foods.

Considerations of a Vegetarian Diet

Considerations of a Vegetarian Diet

Considerations of a Vegetarian Diet

Considerations of a Vegetarian Diet

Our society is set up to regard meat eating as the ‘norm’. Those people who choose a vegetarian diet are often thought of as difficult, ‘trying to be different’ or just odd. A common nutritional fallacy is that meat and animal products must be consumed in order to maintain a well-balanced, healthy diet.

Many people these days are finding out the many health benefits of a vegetarian diet. Additionally, many physicians and nutritionists are prescribing and endorsing plant-based meals in order to promote health, prevent and treat certain diseases, and even to reduce weight. There are many products now becoming available in shops and supermarkets that contain health enhancing plant extracts.These are mixed in yoghurts,spreads and cheeses, to specifically lower cholesterol levels, reduce blood pressure, enhance energy levels and boost immune systems. Who knows what other benefits are just around the corner in plant extracts.

 

Although vegetarianism may seem like a modern idea, in reality, its health benefits have been known for many years in cultures around the world. India and the far east make up the largest percentage of the world’s vegetarians, both for health and spiritual reasons. One group of people, the Hunza, who live near the Himalaya’s have a diet which is exclusively vegetarian. Members of their community reportedly often live to be over 100 years of age.

The American Dietetic Association say that the benefits of a vegetarian diet can include;

Lower cholesterol levels
Lower levels of saturated fats
Lower body fat
Reduced rates of heart disease
Lower blood pressure
Lower incidence of type-2 diabetes
Lower instances of certain cancers
Higher levels of important minerals and antioxidant vitamins

Obesity is one of the major health concerns in the western world. It can be addressed with a vegetarian diet, one that eliminates excess protein and animal fat consumption, and increases fiber in the form of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Those who consume a vegetarian diet tend to maintain a lower body mass index (BMI), which significantly aids in the treatment and management of other chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. A lower BMI is an aim of anyone looking to improve their general health, whether by diet, exercise, or preferably both.

One question often asked by those considering a vegetarian diet is; “Will I get enough protein? This is certainly a valid question, as protein is necessary for the building, maintenance and function of all body cells. In fact, a varied and well-balanced vegetarian diet actually provides all the protein the body needs, obtained by eating such things as whole grains, beans, nuts and soy products.
In fact, meat-based diets typically provide an excess of protein, which may actually be harmful. High protein levels can put more strain on the kidneys. A leading gerontological journal reports that too much protein can cause a person to lose about 30% of their kidney function by the time they reach old age. It can also cause systemic acidity, which the body attempts to counter by leeching calcium out of the bones, which can lead to osteoporosis.

Becoming a vegetarian does not mean you are limited to eating carrots, fruit and nuts. There are many types of vegetarians that eat meatless diets in a variety of combinations. Some of the more common types include;

Lacto vegetarians, who do not eat meat or eggs, but do eat dairy products such as milk and cheese.

Lacto-ovo vegetarians do not eat meat, but will eat dairy products and eggs.

Ovo vegetarians do not eat meat or dairy products, but will eat eggs.

Vegans do not eat meat, dairy products, eggs, or any animal products at all.

There are many medical and health organizations that promote, endorse, and support people on a path toward changing their dietary lifestyle to one that includes more plant-based foods. There is a lot of information on the internet, as well as through medical providers and vegetarian organizations. Numerous books and articles are easily found.

Many restaurants, grocery stores and supermarkets now provide meals and products to vegetarians, making it simpler to choose this healthy lifestyle.

Remember that at the end of the day it is your decision. If you want to simply keep eating a little meat, while exploring deeper into the vegetarian side, then do that. Don’t worry about the ‘purists’. There is no law to say you cannot eat a little meat, fish or chicken along the way – it’s your life and your choice. Once you start eating more vegetarian food though, many people find they start to lose their taste for meat. The main thing is to enjoy the food and feel healthier by doing so.

On a final note, consider using either all organic vegetables and fruit, or at least as much as you can source. Organic produce really makes a great deal of difference to the taste and texture, and you have the security of mind that what you are eating is free of pesticides and other chemicals. More information on this will be found in the next article, or on our web site.

The Benefits of Protein Powders

The Benefits of Protein Powders

I know protein is good for me, but do I need a supplement? Whey, egg, casein and soy — which one protein is right for me and what does each one do?
Let’s get the facts straight. Protein exists in virtually everything that moves and makes sounds, or in almost any animal. Primary dietary protein sources include fish, eggs, chicken, pork, beef, venison, buffalo and many other wild animals.
But which is the best source of protein? Ah, the million dollar question. As with any supplement, no protein powder will match what Mother Nature provides on earth. Natural proteins deliver more quality nutrients to your body than any protein powder ever could. Still, protein powders do have their place.
Scientist have come a long way in their development of protein supplements, including how they taste. Even recently, the best you could hope for with a protein shake was that you could choke it down in spite of its chalky taste and consistency. Now they actually taste good. Today there are plenty of protein powders and meal replacement shakes on the market. The key is finding the best quality products with the highest level of bio-availability.

Using Nutrition To Look And Feel Great

Eating a healthy, nutritious diet is the foundation of good health, so it is more important than ever to make sure you are well educated in the essentials of nutrition. This article will help you ensure that you know how to make your diet as nutritious as possible so you will enjoy good health.

Fill at least half your plate with fruits and vegetables, and eat them first. Since these will be the healthiest things on your plate, you should start by eating your vegetables. You may feel yourself getting full before you move onto your less healthy foods, which can help you get the best nutrition possible.

If you are looking to increase your antioxidant intake, try squirting some organic ketchup on your next meal. Tomato is rich in lycopene, an antioxidant theorized to play a role in fighting cancer. Organic ketchup is a bit darker than the regular stuff, and doesn’t have the corn syrup, either!

It is important to eat both lean protein and complex carbohydrates at every meal. The carbohydrates help to fuel the body so that you do not feel tired and lethargic a few hours later. The protein will help your body to build and retain muscle. Eating too many carbohydrates can make you feel heavy and tired so it is important to eat them in moderation.

If you want to replace your soft drinks with something a bit healthier, look no further than your own tap. Water is refreshing, and contains no added colors, flavors or calories. Water is crucial for life, and drinking more water is rarely, if ever, a bad thing. Click here for the best small, inexpensive, 6 gallon mineral water filters by ZEN.  These filtration units remove all toxins from municipal or well water. Cost is less than a penny per gallon, over a 2 year period of time for all of your cooking and drinking water.

One very good way to get more vitamins is to add fresh juices to your daily diet. You don’t want to drink too much fruit juice because of its sugar content. Try something new like carrot juice or a veggie blend. Multiple flavors can be blended together to improve the taste. Vegetable juices like these are packed with the nutrients your body needs most.

Protein is an essential part of your diet, and seafood is very high in protein. Seafood also has plenty of iron which is important to your diet as well. There are plenty of great options with seafood. They are generally more healthy and less calories for you too. Eat your seafood!

If you are struggling with a picky eater and want your child to be eating more nutritious and healthy foods, do not nag them to eat foods they are not interested in. Instead, come up with a special sauce or combine the item with another item you know the child likes. Be creative and be patient.

Do not trade in soda for a jug of fruit juice. Many people make the mistake of believing that all juices are healthier than soda, but this is actually not the case. Some fruit juices may have just as much, if not more, sugar than some sodas. Read your labels to make sure you are getting the healthiest product.

As with any subject, a solid body of knowledge is essential for successfully maintaining a nutritious diet. Make sure that you know what is in the food you are eating so that you will get the most from your diet. Use the tips you’ve learned from this article to boost your nutritional intake.

Weight Loss Tip

Food can be wonderful or plain awful. At its best, it nourishes us, gives us energy and delights our taste buds. At its worst it clogs up our arteries, fills our bodies with unwanted toxins and makes us fat.
The secret of losing weight is to choose the delicious natural healthy kind and to eat just enough of it so you feel great.
But with so much awful food on offer out there, it’s easier said than done.
No one is paying huge sums to advertise fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and organic lean meat.
Instead we have major food manufacturers with big budgets pushing snacks we can do without and products loaded with thickeners, sweeteners, salt, corn syrup, mechanically recovered meat, preservatives and every other semi-edible chemical known to man.

Chocolate Is Good for Us? Yes! (Third in a series)


This is my third in a series of articles on the happy health benefits of some of our favorite indulgences.
Please read my related articles on coffee and tea, wine and beer.
When the Spanish explorer Hernan Cortes came home from Mexico in the early 1500s, he brought with him the sacred drink of the Aztecs. Made from the roasted seeds of Theobroma cacao, the drink was flavored with a blend of exotic ingredients, and although Cortes had come to like this concoction, the Spanish eventually added sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon for a sweeter drink more pleasing to European taste.

The secret recipe was eventually leaked to Europe, and first appeared in London in the mid-1600s. By 1765 the American colonists were enjoying cocoa made from West Indian beans. Cocoa powder was developed by a Dutch chocolate maker, and his patented process for pressing cocoa butter from the roasted beans made possible the production of both instant cocoa and edible chocolate. Theobroma means, appropriately, “food of the gods.” Chocolate has low levels of caffeine; its main stimulant is theobromine, with a much milder effect. The darker the chocolate, the higher is the content of theobromine.
Cacao beans are extremely rich in flavonoids, the same antioxidant compounds found in wine and beer, coffee and tea. Chocolate contains calories and fat but contributes little to the total saturated fat in the average American diet. Eating dark chocolate in favor of milk chocolate helps in avoiding much of the fat.

The French Paradox

The French, in terms of diet and disease, are a statistical enigma. They relish high fat food, consume alcohol regularly and often smoke – the very picture of the World Health Organisation’s ‘risk group’. High protein, meat based meals include duck, goose and pork – even cooked in fat as a preference! Butter, cream, pork fat and wine are regular ingredients.
Yet they have comparatively low rates of stomach and colon cancer and the second-lowest world incidence of heart disease after Japan. ‘The French Paradox’ is well known to nutritionists and reasons for this statistical enigma are emerging.

Tips For Creating Delicious And Healthy Juice

Creating Delicious And Healthy Juice

Fresh, healthy fruit and vegetable juices are a great addition to any diet, and there’s really no reason not to drink them, since they are so easy to make right in your own home. If you are not sure how to get started, this article can give you some tips on getting the most from your juices. 

If you must use non-organic fruits and vegetables in your juicing, peel it. It is not safe to ingest the skin even if you clean it well. Heavy metals and other dangerous things can permeate the skin, meaning cleaning won’t actually remove it. The skin of fruit and vegetables is very good for you, so you are much better off buying organic and including its skin in your juices. It will surprise you at the ease of creating delicious and healthy juice drinks.

Look for your favorite fruits and vegetables on sale to keep down your cost. A pound of produce only produces about a cup of juice so, unfortunately, taking care of your health can get expensive. Check out farmers’ markets, and shop the sales at your major grocery stores.

The Top Ten Hottest Food Trends You Are Buying Into

The Top Ten Hottest Food Trends You Are Buying Into

It seems food companies around the world are using whatever marketing tactics possible to draw the consumer to the product while they whisk down the aisles of the supermarket. What is it about consumer behavior that has food companies modifying, expanding, and diversifying their brands at such a fast rate?

Food experts have spotted 10 major food trends and outlined them in Food Technology’s April issue. See if these trends match what you have stored in your pantry, freezer, and refrigerator.

* Foods for at-risk kids. Extra weight, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol can affect pretty much anyone at any age bow, so food products are trimming fat, sugar, and food allergens while boosting calcium and whole grains. Fresh fruit and yogurt remain top snacks for younger kids.
* Smaller servings, limited calories. Low-calorie items and smaller portions are in demand. Small sizes may become popular at restaurants, too.
* Focus on phyto-chemicals. These natural chemicals found in plant-based foods such as green tea, berries, and chocolate have healthy ingredients including antioxidants and flavinoids.
* Foods with multiple health perks. People today want foods that multi-task for better health, such as items that are low in fat, cholesterol, and salt with a modest calorie count to help people watching their weight, or watching their heart health.
* Fat facts. The number of products touting “low,” “no,” or “reduced” trans fats has shot up in recent years. “Low in saturated fat,” “fat-free,” and “cholesterol-free” are other popular buzzwords on food packaging. It is also popular now to feature omega-3 fatty acids for heart health on food labels.
* Foods for older shoppers. Food marketers have an eye on the aging population, so expect to see foods aimed at common health concerns among elders, including osteoporosis, digestive problems, arthritis, and menopause. For example, some yogurts highlight probiotics (helpful bacteria) for digestion.
* Glycemic, gluten, and grains. The low-carb craze has waned, but items that are low on the glycemic index are still hot. Those foods don’t cause dramatic spikes and crashes in blood sugar. “Gluten-free” fare is also catching on, with more people becoming aware of gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity. Glutens are a form of protein found in some grains.
* Natural solutions. Organic foods are the “in” thing these days. Meat and poultry from animals raised on vegetarian feed with access to pastures and without hormones or antibiotics are also catching on.
* Performance boosters. Products are promising to boost energy and mental sharpness. Flavored bottled waters are projected to grow by nearly 50% by 2009.

Some companies have put a twist on traditional products. Many items aim to skim sugar, fat, and calories off sweets and desserts without sacrificing taste. It seems that the people are turning to healthier foods and the food companies are trying to keep up with their demands. With all the trends out there, it is likely you fall into one or more of these categories. But are we falling for smart marketing ploys or are these products really delivering? Make sure you read your labels and separate the healthy from the hyped-up.

Health And The Economy

We normally do not think that health is related to economics other than with regard to the costs of medical care. But there is another more fundamental way money impacts our well-being. If you could not pay your bills or had to worry about where the next meal would come from, would you be thinking about health, or survival? When we are trying to stay alive moment-to-moment we don’t think about food choices, supplements, organic farming, animal welfare or environmental issues. Those considerations are a “luxury” dependent upon economic capability. But they are a luxury we must have if we are to live a reflective life and survive on planet Earth. Without a robust economy, you can pretty much forget about people being environmental, health conscious, or even civil to one another. In starving nations, war is endemic, disease rampant and the environment is only a raw material to be ravaged to hopefully live to the next day.The emerging world economy will ultimately place great economic stress on the United States. It already has. Thousands of jobs are being lost to overseas companies employing workers requiring a fraction of the wages demanded here. People in America increasingly try to maintain a standard of living through debt. This is great for all the banks popping up on almost every street corner, but bad for the people. Just in the past year there have been almost two million personal bankruptcies declared.

Although getting the proper amount of vitamins and nutrients from natural food is important, it can be very hard to do.

Shopping tips for the pH miracle diet

If you’ve read about the pH miracle diet and you’ve decided to give it a try, you have a few tasks ahead of you. Depending on how committed you are the program you may begin with clearing out your pantry and your refrigerator of all highly acidic foods. If you live with others who won’t be on the diet with you, you may just want to remove the high acid treats that you find irresistible. Either way, whether you do a “kitchen purge” or just remove a few items from your shelves, you’ll need to go grocery shopping.

The tips and hints we provide in this article, when followed as suggested, should help you to either improve on what you have already done, or help you start off well.

Consider eating raw food. Cooking removes the vitamins and nutrients from certain types of food. Therefore, not cooking when possible means you’ll get maximum nutrition out of each item you eat. Raw food often tastes bad by itself, so you should use healthy condiments to spice it up. Keep in mind, though, that eating raw meat puts you at risk for food-borne illness.

When buying a bagel from a bakery, beware of portion sizes. Most bakeries will give you a bagel that is actually two or more servings of bread. If you enjoy bagels from a bakery, consider splitting the bagel with someone. You can buy a bagel before you go to work and give half to a coworker. This can be a nice gesture and a way to control your portion sizes.

Always make breakfast a part of your day. Your body has gone without fuel for the entire night, and skipping breakfast is like pressing down the gas pedal on a car with an empty gas tank. Make sure your breakfast includes protein and the right amount of carbs to give you enough fuel to start your day right.

To lower your risk of heart disease and other serious health threats, try to eat less fried and fatty foods. Choose broiled, steamed, or baked foods over fried foods, as the deep frying adds fat which can clog arteries, raise bad cholesterol levels, and increase the risk of heart disease.

To receive the benefits of antioxidants, you don’t have to drink exotic fruit juices. Tomatoes, one of the most common foods, contain loads of these beneficial antioxidants and they also have plenty of vitamins, like C and A. Tomatoes can be enjoyed in various ways. Cherry tomatoes are great for snacking, while large tomatoes can be used in sandwiches, soups, sauces and many other uses.

Organic milk will actually keep longer than regular milk. You can store and use milk for five to seven days past its “expiration date,” which is actually a pull date for the stores. Organic milk will last for even longer in your fridge than regular milk and it tastes better, too.

Make sure you drink lots of water each day. Sports drinks, sodas, coffee and even juices do not count toward this. Drinks other than water are filled with sugar and additives that may do more to dehydrate you than hydrate you. Drink more water than anything else, and if you have a beverage like alcohol that is dehydrating, make sure to drink twice as much water as it, to balance out.

To summarize, there is quite a bit to learn about nutrition. Do not be overwhelmed though, because the basics are easy enough to implement. A lot is dependent on your willingness to make some changes, and a lot of those will start at your next trip to the grocery store. Are you ready for the challenge?

How To Protect And Improve Your Sensitive Skin!

Sensitive skin shows continuous hyperactivity to environmental factors and exhibits a reduced tolerance to frequent or prolonged use of cosmetics and toiletries. The skin displays signs of irritation such as erythema, desquamation or discomfort such as itching, burning and stinging. These conditions are becoming even more pronounced after exposure to dry and cold climates. Sensitivity can also increase with age. It has been reported for example that the skin gets more sensitive in women at the beginning of menopause.

Many ingredients usually included in cosmetics such as dimethyl sulfoxid, benzoic acid, salicylic acid, propylene glycol, lactic acid, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium benzoate, cinnamic acid, sorbic acid are potential irritants. Formulations, in which a beneficial constituent is involved, can be detrimental for the skin in certain conditions. For example, a formulation containing a small molecule such as acid hydroxy acetic (AHA) with a lower pH can provoke sensations of tingling, itching or irritation when applied to sensitive, unhealthy or inflamed skin. Such reactions can be triggered by uncontrolled release of the acid, fast penetration into the skin and low pH.

I just wrapped up a series of weight loss and health enhancement seminars in Florida, and during that seminar I spoke about how I personally break up carbohydrates when working with my personal clients to create a diet that’s going to help them lose weight and develop a tight body.

Now obviously, there’s technically only one form of macro-nutrients known as carbohydrates, and in that category we can break it down into 2 sub-categories known as ’simple’ and ‘complex’ carbohydrates, but when thinking about developing ultimate health, fast fat-loss, or maximizing your metabolism – there’s really a much better way to think about carbohydrates.

Are YOU Killing Your Baby?

Are YOU Killing Your Baby?

Are YOU Killing Your Baby?

Pretty harsh title isn’t it! Most of us parents make it a daily priority to keep our children safe from all sorts of hazards. We worry about the food they are eating, the beverages they drink, and if they are warm enough or cool enough. We teach them about not talking to strangers and how to cross a street safely. We teach them the hazards of drugs, smoking and drinking. But, even if you do all this, you could still be killing your child!

A couple very common preservatives found in baby shampoo are imidozliidinyl urea and diazolidinyl urea. These can cause dermatitis. Cosmetic talc is carcinogenic and is found in baby powders. Talc based powder has been linked to ovarian cancer! Propylene Glycol is reported to have SEVERE adverse effects on the health; dermatitis, allergies, kidney and liver damage to name a few. These are found in baby products such as wipes and lotions. Sodium Laurel, Lauryl or Laureth Sulfate, sodium dodecyl sulfate are skin irritants and reported as being toxic. They have a tendency to react with other ingredients to form carcinogenic nitrosamines. Studies have shown that these chemicals penetrate the eyes, heart, liver and brain. This is the main ingredient in shampoos, baby shampoos, and toothpaste!

Natural Prevention & Treatment For The Flu

Natural Prevention & Treatment For The Flu

Natural Prevention & Treatment For The Flu

Flu can affect 10 to 30 percent of the U.S. population each winter. The flu virus can linger in the air for as long as three hours. In close quarters, conditions are ripe for the spread of the virus. That explains why the highest incidence of the flu is in 5- to 18-year-olds, who spend much of their time in school, in close contact with their classmates. The most serious complications occur in older adults, however, especially those in managed care. Do not give aspirin or other “salicylates” to children or teenagers with symptoms of a cold or flu. Don’t bother taking antibiotics to treat your flu or cold; antibiotics do not kill viruses, and they should be used only for bacterial infections. Antibiotic overuse has become a very serious problem, leading to a resistance in disease-causing bacteria that may render antibiotics ineffective for some conditions.
According to a National Survey, OTC cough and cold medication sales totaled 3.2 billion dollars in 1995. That’s no surprise, considering Americans endure about 1 billion colds each year.

What makes up 70-80% of our planet? Water. What makes up 70-80% of our body? That’s right, water.

Water is the single most important nutrient you will give your body apart from oxygen. Water rejuvenates us and carries vital nutrients all round the body where it’s needed. Water picks up all the leftovers, wastes and debris that the cells throw off into the lymph system and transport them out of the body via the channels of elimination.

So when you drink more water it has the double combination of feeding your body and clearing you of all the waste products that were built up in your system.

Making baby food is something more parents are interested in doing, especially with the controversies surrounding many of the commercial producers or baby food. Feeding baby is one of the most important ways to encourage healthy living and improve health when it is done with the proper nutrients. Before you begin feeding your baby any type of homemade food, be sure to consult with your baby’s doctor. Allergies and impurities can endanger some children.

Why Bother Making Baby Food?

There are many reasons to make your own baby food. First, you get to save money. Purchasing food you already eat and converting a small amount of it into baby food can cut down on your budget. Jars of baby food start at 50 cents or more and go up to several dollars a jar. Using several per meal can really add up considering the small amount of food your child is getting for your investment. Making your own baby food can cut out this expense altogether especially when you do not buy additional foods but rather use those foods you are already making.

Juicing Tips And Techniques Anyone Can Use! 


While juicing may look like the newest trend, this is an age-old way of getting your daily fruits and vegetables.
Juicing has several noteworthy benefits and can be a way to keep your family healthy, especially as the temperatures drops and our immune systems take a hit from the chill.

Consider using a food saver to remove all the excess air from your juice before storing it. This will allow your juice to keep its maximum nutritional content. It also allows for a longer shelf life, reducing spoilage and waste. If a food saver is not available, you can also use air tight jars.

Switch out your coffee or other stimulant beverage for a fresh glass of juice. The high levels of vitamins and minerals in the juice will give you that boost that you are needing but also provide a longer lasting effect, no crash later and lots of other good for you ingredients as well.

Learn about the fresh foods that you will be buying and making juice with. You need to be aware of their shelf lives. One way to see this is by placing a piece of fruit out on the counter and watching it die. This should teach you about the life of fresh food.

Always peel the skins off non-organic produce before juicing it. Non-organic produce is grown using pesticides and these pesticides are usually sprayed on the skin. By peeling the skin off, you reduce the amount of pesticide residue you are consuming. While washing them off removes some of the pesticides, many of them are deeply embedded into the skin. So, removing the skin is the only way to remove the pesticides.

Wheat-grass has many health benefits such as cleansing the lymph system, and removing toxic metals from your cells. You can only ingest wheat-grass through juice, so juicing can be extremely beneficial. Be careful because wheat-grass does have a very strong taste. It is best to start out a little at a time. Each time you juice, just gradually add a little more.

Purchase older fruit and vegetables in order to save money on juicing. Grocery stores discount fruits and vegetables that are older because they are no longer attractive to customers. These foods have the same level of nutrition and are perfect for using to make juice. It is possible to save as much as 90% or more off the regular price of these items once they start to show age.

Making lettuce juice is great for weight loss. The lettuce helps to moderate the appetite. Some of the best, most nutritious lettuces to use are low-carb bibb, romaine and buttercrunch. If using darker lettuces, they will have a strong taste and may need to be cut with other juices.

Whether for drinking or as part of a recipe, juicing your fruits and vegetables can liven up your diet and be an easy way to help your family stay healthy. Whether you’re sneaking your kids some vegetables or wanting something refreshing after a hard day, you have only healthful rewards to gain.

For some people, the thought of juicing is that it is tedious work with messy results that aren’t going to be that great anyway. However, that is wrong, as juicing can be easy and fun, clean and simple, and even great tasting and very healthy. Get these tips in mind as you set out to learn more about juicing.

If you’re juicing for health, or doing a juice fast, you MUST use organic produce. Pesticides and heavy metals in the soil used to grow normal fruit and vegetables will negate any cleansing you’re trying to accomplish, wasting your money and time. Buy organic to ensure that the only pesticides used are organic and fine to ingest.

It’s best to avoid juicing fruits and vegetables that have a low water content. Avocados and bananas, for example, are quite dense and don’t have much water in them. They will clog up your juicer and you won’t get much juice out of them. If you really want to include them, blend them first and then mix them with juices from other produce.

Raw Food Diet

Raw Food Diet

Raw Food Diet

Raw Food Diet

Eating raw foods is natural. Our bodies thrive on all that is fresh and vital. A raw food diet (or increasing the amount of raw food that you eat) is bound to bring a feeling of increased well-being.

Raw food diets are based on unprocessed and uncooked plant foods, preferably organic, such as a variety of fresh fruits and veggies, nuts, seeds, grains, dried fruit, fresh juices and purified water.

Why Raw Foods?

Basically a vegetarian diet, the raw food diet promotes eating and drinking ‘living’ foods. Living foods and juices contain the maximum amount of fiber found in raw produce, fiber that can be lost in processing. Such foods are easily metabolized and tend to be lower in calories than the average diet.

Heating food above 116°F destroys enzymes in food that aid in digestion and in absorption of food, diminishing its nutritional value.

Do not make your juice too complicated. Select two or three vegetables, add a little apple to make it sweeter and you will create a delicious and nutritious juice. Whether you are using fruits or vegetables, making your drink too complicated means that it will not taste as good, it takes more work to produce, and so you will not enjoy it as much.

If you don’t like the taste of certain vegetables that you should be eating for their nutritional benefit, try mixing them with fruit or vegetables you do like! Use only one disliked vegetable in a recipe and the flavors of the others that you do enjoy will overwhelm your taste buds so you don’t even notice it!

The Lifestyle of a Vegetarian

The Lifestyle of a Vegetarian

The Lifestyle of a Vegetarian

One of the biggest injustices that the vegetarian movement has endured is that in popular culture, the image of a vegetarian is that of a fanatic hippy or cult member who is “off the deep end” and cannot think about anything else besides “saving a cow” and pushing vegetarianism on everyone he meets. The truth is that the lifestyle of a vegetarian is not that different than everyone else in the culture. In fact, the odds are that somewhere in your social circle at work, school, church or in your family and friends network, you already know several people who are quietly enjoying the lifestyle of a vegetarian. So to help us get over the negative stereotypes to understand how a vegetarian actually lives, lets examine what is different about a vegetarians life.

The most significant difference in how a vegetarian lives is obvious because it is in how he or she eats. You will not find any meat in a vegetarian’s kitchen. Now this doesn’t mean that a vegetarian cannot live in a family and be at peace with meat eaters. If the home has one vegetarian but others who are not, you will be able to tell from the presence of soy and perhaps more fruit and fresh vegetables in the refrigerator. But the idea that vegetarians cannot be around meat eaters is false. If anything vegetarians are peace loving and can live their lifestyle around others who are not of their belief system very well.

The best time to pick most home-grown herbs is at the break of dawn in the morning when you see dew on the plants. Picking the youngest shoots give the best flavor and helps keep the plant pruned. Most herbs can be frozen in zipped plastic bags and will keep fine for up to six months.

Organic Gardening Beginner’s Guide

Typically, beginners to organic gardening excited by the whole concept of organic, but don’t know where to start. I remember when I first contracted organic fever. I was so excited and I was reading everything I could find. Some articles were very entertaining but gave little practical information. Other content seemed to focus on a particular product as being the miraculous answer to all gardening problems. On one occasion I was reading an extremely compelling article about liquid organic fertilizerIt was very compelling and I was ready to buy it. Problem was, I hadn’t even planted anything yet! What I needed was a beginners guide to organic gardening. Years later and I have never found one yet that was free, so I decided to write it myself. I always recommend to anyone who is just discovering organic gardening to start on a small scale. Container gardening, for example, is a perfect place to start. You can move your container easily to protect it from the elements, even indoors.

Organic Makeup – Things To Consider?

Organic Makeup - Things To Consider?

Organic Makeup – Things To Consider?

To say that organic makeup is enjoying unprecedented levels of popularity would be an understatement, and the manufacturers of the vast majority of beauty and cosmetics products have taken notice of this increase in demand and aimed at getting their piece of the so called pie.

Within the launching of various products, lines and options when it comes to organic makeup things may not be exactly what they seem, with many products claiming organic ingredients, mentioning natural based contents and so forth on their labels. One of the main problems however is the fact that many of the beauty available today need to be somehow preserved, and hence the additives, preservatives and related ingredients that are incorporated into the vast majority of skincare and beauty products. This preservation is centered upon increasing the shelf life of the product in question, otherwise companies would have produce products and then withdraw those that have not sold within the ‘optimal’ time period, which is obviously a financial burden to say the least. The problem with the use of preservatives is found within the constituents thereof, of which are mostly chemically based and which have been linked to affecting the skin in a variety of ways, including surface damage, drying out, pores getting blocked and various other implications of use.

Laying the Foundation to Becoming GLOBALLY Competitive

Recently I was invited to do a Keynote speech at the Pan Arab Organizations Global Competitiveness Strategy Conference which was held in the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. The topic was about leadership and what was required of organizations in order to become globally competitive. To be in business in the 21st century, you need to be playing the game as a globally competitive player. Whether you have it in your mind to compete on a local or a global level, your thoughts, strategy and leadership must be reflective of you being competitive on a global scale. No longer is it an option for you to consider, rather it has become a must to operate with this framework in mind if you wish to thrive today when the majority struggle to survive. This framework applies whether you are an employee, a self employed person, a manager of a department or a CEO of an organisation.

How To Grow A Beautiful Organic Garden

How To Grow A Beautiful Organic Garden

One of the benefits (if you can call it that) of chemically-enhanced produce is that it grows bigger, faster and cheaper than organic produce. But the risk factor involved is just too much for some people to live with, and thus they attempt to grow their own produce organically. If you fit this bill, check out these gardening tips.

Fertilize your soil with organic compost. Organic gardeners tend to fertilize their soil twice in one season: once prior to planting, and then again in the middle of a growth cycle. The best fertilizer to use is an organic compost, as it releases nutrients slowly unlike chemical fertilizers, which release nutrients in one go and then lose their effect.

Why Organic Natural Skin Care is Better

Why Organic Natural Skin Care is Better

Why Organic Natural Skin Care is Better

Let’s face it. There is no question that organic natural skin care is a far better answer than the chemical laden products that are most frequently sold. If they are so much better, then why aren’t more people buying them? The answer to this question is that most people do not possess the knowledge about various cosmetics ingredients, and what it is that they do.

If more people understood how the ingredients in skin care products worked in order to keep their skin healthy then they would make far better buying decisions. Knowing what to look for in these products would also teach people what it is that they need to avoid. There are plenty of ingredients that are frequently used in the manufacture of cosmetics products that you should steer clear of.

Essential Oils Storage – So That You Continue Benefiting For Years

Essential Oils Storage – So That You Continue Benefiting For Years

Essential Oils Storage – So That You Continue Benefiting For Years

Essential Oils Storage Shelves

   The importance of storing your essential oils in a proper manner can be estimated from the fact that women in the 19th century would ask their jewelers to design special bottles to hold their perfumes and essential oils. Luxury apart, storing essential oils in specially designed bottles helped keep the therapeutic and aromatic properties of the essential oils intact.

It is common knowledge that most of the essential oils become contaminated or their effect gets weakened with time if they are not stored properly. Citrus oils are the most susceptible to early breakdown. They oxidize and begin to lose the aroma and therapeutic properties. The citrus oil becomes cloudy and a sweet fragrance is emitted. This signals towards the deterioration of the essential oil.

Essential Oil Diffusing With an Electric Nebulizer: 3 Health Benefits

Essential Oil Diffusing With an Electric Nebulizer: 3 Health Benefits

What Is an Electric Nebulizer and How Does It Work?

An electric nebulizing diffuser is a small device that has a motor housing and a glass nebulizer. The motor housing and glass nebulizer piece are often connected by a small length of rubber tubing. One or more essential oils are dispensed into an opening near the base of the glass piece. When the diffuser is turned on, the essential oils are aspirated toward the top of the glass nebulizer, where a small stream of air micronizes the essential oils into extremely fine droplets. This fine mist is expelled out the top of the glass nebulizer into the room.

Why Is Nebulizer Diffusion More Effective Than Other Types of Diffusion?

Other methods of essential oil diffusion include using lamp rings, a candle to heat the oil, or passive diffusion with an aromatherapy stone or a cotton ball. Heat diffusion is less desirable because alters the molecular constituents of the essential oil. Passive diffusion is typically very slow, particularly with less volatile essential oils, providing inferior therapeutic benefit.

With a nebulizing diffuser, no heat is used, so the molecular make up of the essential oils remains in tact. In most cases, all molecular components of the essential oil are expelled into the air, as opposed to passive diffusion where the smallest molecules evaporate first, with heavier molecules evaporating more slowly or not at all.

The History of Organic Farming:  Decades of Change

Fifteen years ago, you may have had a hard time finding an organic tomato in your local supermarket. Due to recent farming advances and public awareness, however, consumers can find a host of organic products in supermarket shelves and in the produce section of grocery stores across America. How did we come to the point we’re at today and when did buying produce
become so complicated.

In truth, it’s the type of farming in which farmers use artificial pesticides, herbicides and other conventional farming techniques that is really historically new to us. Before 1940, much of the produce grown and eaten in American homes was totally organic and was often picked no further than one’s own backyard.

What Organic Really Means


The word “organic” may appear on packages of meat, cartons of milk or eggs, cheese and other single-ingredient foods.
Certified organic requires the rejection of synthetic agrochemicals, irradiation and genetically engineered foods or ingredients. Literally, of course, the term is a redundancy: all food is composed of organic chemicals (complex chemicals containing carbon). Any materials used in the production or processing of organic food must be proven safe. Awareness is growing about the value of organic foods. But, whether organic chicken or pesticide-free lettuce represents “healthier” alternatives has long been a subject for debate.

When Your Children Start the Independent Life at Colleges

Pecan Pie

Being Away From Home for College is Scary Enough

When college students start the independent life, they must go by himself but still feel at least a little bit out of sorts. Even if they are not afraid of anything or not worried, they still miss Mom’s meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy Grandma’s apple pies next door and the local town hangout, be it an ice cream store, diner, or bowling alley. They will feel shocked when they will have to do their own laundry, wash their own car, a chore for gals (thank goodness for the drive through car cleaning!)

The other thing is, sometimes they are feeling a bit uncomfortable getting used to sleeping on a different bed, in a strange room, in an unfamiliar town. So, thank the stars that there are some great personal protection items which are perfect for college students, whether male or female. There is the door brace, which is a tubular, metal contraption that extends in a telescopic sort of way, and it wedges between the floor and just under the door knob. It would prevent the door from being pushed open, even IF it was somehow unlocked from the outside. The door brace would make an attempt at breaking in very difficult, if not impossible.

There is a process for the certification and labeling of organic foods.

In 1990, the United States legislature passed the Organic Foods Production Act. It assured the standardization the use of terms such as “organic” and “natural.” This act established a US Natural Organic Standards Board (NOSB).

Regulations were further promulgated by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) in conjunction with the NOSB, so that today there is a set of standards that guide the entire industry. For example, NOSB defines organic agriculture as “an ecological production management system that promotes and enhances biodiversity, biological cycles and soil biological activity. It is based on minimal use of off-farm inputs and management practices that restore, maintain, and enhance ecological harmony.”

As previously stated, eating organic foods is a great way to stay healthy. With that being said, many of the individuals who first examine organic foods are a little bit turned off by the cost.

Of course, the decision to do so is yours to make, but you should not let the cost of organic foods turn you away. There are a number of reasons why organic foods are more than worth their costs and a few of the reasons why are highlighted below.

The Advantage Of Organic Food

With more and more attention being given to the effect diet can have on our bodies, it is inevitable that the question should arise as to whether or not there is a particular advantage of organic food. Organic food enthusiasts will report – without hesitation – of their increased energy and overall health and vitality. As we explore the correlation between our diets and our longevity and health, it stands to reason that we must also explore the possible advantage of organic food.

The definition of organic food lies in the manner in which the food is grown and processed. Organic food is that food which is not exposed to chemicals of any kind during its growing, manufacturing, processing, or packaging. Organic fruits and vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides and are preservative-free on every level. Organic farming has emerged as one of the industries of the future as more and more people are demanding the most natural and nutritious choices for their families.

Liquid Vitamin Supplements (2)

Liquid Vitamin Supplements

Several years ago, liquid vitamin supplements were never heard of. In the past, tablets and pills were the ideal way to take supplements. Although they were considered to be great, they wouldn’t get into the bloodstream of the body fast enough, with some people just passing them through the body without reaping the benefits. With the market craving more and manufacturers looking for ways to make vitamins better, they decided to turn to liquid vitamins.

Although fruit and vegetables contain the right amounts of minerals and nutrients, it’s nearly impossible to live off them alone. Even though they contain the right amount, it’s also impossible to eat the right amount that our bodies need on a daily basis. While some may choose to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, the human stomach simply isn’t big enough to contain all of the fruits and vegetables that an individual needs on a daily basis.

Organic Aromatherapy Oil


Aromatherapy is the practice of using volatile oils derived from plants. For many thousands of years, this form of science has been used for a variety of purposes, not least of which is to improve general well-being.

The Egyptians were the first people to ever use a distillation machine to extract liquid from plants. Often, they used distillation for plants whose oils are harder to extract, especially if they come from roots, twigs, and barks. These organic aromatherapy oils were then used as perfumes, bath scents, massage oils, and even ointments for healing wounds. Since there were no chemical pesticides developed at that time, it is safe to say that all their organic aromatherapy oils were truly organic in the sense that they contained no synthetic chemicals.

It’s unfortunate but many people have digestive systems that find it hard to break down food and absorb nutrients – this can be caused by poor levels of stomach acid, toxic substances in the gut, insufficient production of digestive enzymes among other reasons.
This condition can of course be dramatically improved as nutrient intake is increased slowly. An organic diet is of course the healthiest you can use but you may just need to compensate for any shortfalls and take some supplements.
You don’t need to visit your doctor to take supplements they can be self-prescribed once taken in small regular amounts, which can be ideal for treating any minor health problems.

Hannah Kuper is Director of the International Centre for Evidence in Disability at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in London, UK.

There are many different ways of defining disability. Essentially, people who are disabled have an underlying impairment (such as difficulties in hearing, understanding or seeing), which together with different barriers (e.g., negative attitudes, physical inaccessibility) stops them from participating fully in society. As a consequence, people with disabilities are  often being left behind in terms of levels of schooling, employment, level of income, and so on. This is important on a global level, as there are an estimated 1 billion people with disabilities, equating to 15% of people worldwide.

However, this is not always true. It is sometimes very important to use health supplements to compensate on the deficit of vitamins and minerals.

Health supplements can be purchased from the general pharmacy stores or from the many online stores available in the World Wide Web. All you have to do is to choose the health supplement that best suits your vitamin and mineral needs. It is not only the athletes who need health supplements; people suffering from ailments need health supplements to develop a natural immunity and resistance to the ailment.

Organic foods have become easier and easier to obtain in recent years. Still, many consumers wonder if this type of food is healthy enough to be worth the often extra cost. Many of the benefits of organic foods have come to consumers through word of mouth and the promotions put on by advocates of organic eating. Fortunately, there has been research and several solid arguments supporting the use of organic foods in everyday eating.

Several recent studies on farms which produce organic foods determined that organic farms don’t release synthetic pesticides into the ground, the air and, most importantly, the water table. Some of the inorganic, chemical pesticides are known to be harmful to wildlife and other animals.

Changing Lifestyle Of Children With Organic Foods

Kids are kids, and being kids would also mean eating different snacks. However, since kids re not fully aware of what they eat, parents must take the imitative in making sure that they give their children with foods that will help in their growth. So instead of giving them unhealthful foods, parents can resort to giving their children with organic foods.

In such case, there is also a problem that lies in it: how parents can convince their kids to eat organic foods. This instance is faced by almost all parents who are giving their children with organic foods for snack. Children, at times, will not really like the taste of organic foods. But the best thing that they can get from it is the minerals as well as the vitamins that we cannot just get from usual snacks.

AFM: The scary polio-like illness

It is a scary illness, not just for parents but for doctors, too: Acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) causes sudden weakness and loss of muscle tone in the arms and legs and can go on to cause even more serious problems.

It’s not just the symptoms that are scary. It’s also scary because we don’t know what causes it. Although the symptoms are similar to polio, patients with AFM have tested negative for polio. At one point it was thought that it was caused by another enterovirus, but that didn’t end up being the explanation. It may be another virus, or it may be some sort of toxin, or something else entirely — or perhaps a combination of factors.

Vitamin Deficiency And Acne

In today’s fast food society, it is no wonder that diet is such an extreme issue. It is almost impossible for anybody to maintain a healthy diet now-a-days. Health organizations estimate that only 10-20% even consume the recommended amounts of the most important vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. This is a startling low number and simply results from the fact that a healthy diet is very hard to maintain.

In order to be able to maintain a healthy body and in order to be able to have clear, healthy, acne free skin, it is important to consume the recommended amount of many crucial vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. However, diet alone often falls short of this. Fast foods don’t contain many vitamins and minerals in the first place, people usually don’t have time to try and prepare full, healthy, rounded meals, and even the foods purchased in stores now have many of their vitamins and minerals taken out of them in order to help them stay fresh longer.

In fact, greasy dishes in China are often served with Oolong tea. This is because Oolong is known as an obesity fighter.

Medical scribes let the doctor focus on you

It’s a gorgeous weekend and you are playing a game of basketball with friends. You take a jump shot, scoring two points, but twist your right ankle on landing. You feel immediate pain and stop playing. After resting for an hour, you notice increased swelling and are having difficulty walking, so you go to the nearby urgent care center. The physician comes to see you, introduces herself, then introduces the medical scribe, who moves to the corner of the room in front of the computer. As the doctor starts asking you questions, the scribe begins typing.

Scribes are becoming increasingly common in doctor’s offices. But what do they do, what type of training do they have, and why are they gaining in popularity?

Cancer and circadian rhythm–Nobel Prize research shows how body clocks can turn back disease

Cancer and circadian rhythm–Nobel Prize research shows how body clocks can turn back disease

Cancer and circadian rhythm–Nobel Prize research shows how body clocks can turn back disease

Cancer. The word continues to evoke paralyzing fear in humans despite the science and education that exists to empower them to heal. Clocks-human beings live by them. Age, education, work, sickness, marriage—are all measured by the passing of years. Life and death are often measured in quantity of time—as opposed to quality. As the song “Turn, Turn, Turn” so appropriately says, “a time for every purpose under Heaven.” The results for cancer and circadian rhythm are positively remarkable.

What could cancer and clocks possibly have in common?

According to years of scientific research, circadian rhythm—that is, the 24-hour rotation of the Earth, may have a far more important role to play in resetting our own body clocks to prevent and reverse disease. Studies of blind women and night shift workers (mostly nurses) have given much insight into why these groups of people have significantly higher rates of cancer (mostly of the breast), obesity, diabetes, and depression. Nobel Prize winning research (2017) about circadian rhythm further explains why this is so. (Links below)

The Patient-Collaborator Movement Hits Pharma In The News:

Some players in the life science industry have seen certain patient groups as antagonists in the past but the tide is turning.

Cheap essential oils – rewarding quality of essential oils

What are cheap essential oils? The word cheap in cheap essential oils has different connotations for different people. While the term will literally mean as costing less, in the real sense it means exacting the true value of the essential oil from the buyer.

Quality of essential oils is a very important feature to look for when purchasing essential oils. You purchase cheap essential oils from a local vendor not knowing that it is the result of third or fourth distillate. The quality of such a preparation will be naturally less. Essential oils are not solely purchased for the aroma and scent that they produce. Majority of the users buy it for its therapeutic values. As the quality of essential oils reduce, so does its therapeutic benefits. Nevertheless, one may have to pay a very small price for acquiring the essential oil.

Therefore, while buying an essential oil, one should not look only for the price but quality as well. Quality of essential oils will determine its price. So can we say more is the price, better is the quality. Not necessarily. In most cases, this may hold true; but not in all cases. There is no scarcity of vendors who charge a high premium on their oils. This implies that buyers may have to pay a higher price for the oil than it actually deserves.

All of the professional soccer players understand the importance of an effective diet.

When you go to the grocery store or supermarket to buy fruits or vegetables, do you pick just any produce or are you particular about getting organic foods?

There is a difference between the two and, after our discussion, you may decide that organic foods are the way to go. Let’s take a look at the benefits of buying organic produce.

While both types of produce may look the same, organic foods must be able to meet specific standards of production, including specific growing and processing conditions that are unique to foods that can be labeled “organic”. For crop foods, the organic foods can’t be grown using any chemical pesticides, non-organic fertilizer, human waste fertilizer or sludge from sewage. They also cannot be processed using ionizing radiation—a process that kills bacteria but that some people believe is unsafe. Finally, the food can’t be genetically altered.
