Red Blinking Lights ….Eye Lights for Every Brain

Red Blinking Lights ….Eye Lights for Every Brain Do you want to increase your ability to throw a football, play tennis, kick a soccer ball, hit a baseball, or sink a putt? Eye lights can help you do all of this and more. For your body to perform at its optimal level, your brain must be working at its best level. Generally, most brains have only half of it functioning at its highest level. Just imagine what you can accomplish on the field and in your daily life if your entire brain is working optimally. We all have one side of the brain functioning at a higher level than the other (this is your dominant side). One of the most direct avenues to the brain is via the eye. By stimulating the non-dominant or weaker side of your brain, you allow it to become stronger, thus improving overall performance both mentally and physically. Light stimulation directly to the non-dominate brain causes an excitatory barrage to travel to the mesencephalon, the most metabolic area of the brain, where an increase in cellular function occurs. The excitatory barrage travels also to the parietal, temporal, and occipital lobes of the brain, while collateral fibers lead to the pineal gland, pituitary gland, and the hypothalamus. Eye lights are being worn by children with learning disabilities in order to keep them more attentive and focused in the classroom. Athletes are wearing Eye lights to increase performance on the field or to push through a plateau. Anyone can wear Eye lights to deal more effectively with stress, depression, or neurological disorders.   How Do Eye...

6 Simple keys to Keeping Your Heart Strong

6 SIMPLE KEYS TO KEEPING YOUR HEART STRONG WHY THE FUSS ABOUT CHOLESTEROL? It is a fatty, waxy material that is found in high-fat meat and dairy products, as well as egg yolks, organ meats and shellfish. Because of the essential role cholesterol plays in every cell of the body to help digest fats, strengthen cell membranes, and make hormones – the body creates all it needs on its own – about 1,000 mg a day. In order for cholesterol to reach our cells, it must rely on special carriers called lipoproteins: low-density lipoproteins (LDL)-“bad” form and high-density lipoproteins (HDL)-‘good” form of cholesterol. LDL carries cholesterol through the body and deposits it in the cells. HDL transports any cholesterol the cells don’t need to the liver, where it eventually gets processed and eliminated. Although various body tissues remove LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream and then use it to make cell membranes, bile acids, vitamin D and various hormones, once the tissues have acquired all the cholesterol they need, they stop extracting LDL cholesterol from the bloodstream. The extra cholesterol, which happens when we eat too many foods high in cholesterol, continues to circulate in your arteries. LDL deposits the excess cholesterol onto artery walls, where it forms plaque that clogs the blood vessels and can ultimately lead to heart disease or even a heart attack. A good idea is to keep your LDL cholesterol level under 2.5 mmol/L (96 mg/dL) and your total cholesterol about 3.9 mmol/L (150 mg/dL)-4.7 mmol/L (180 mg/dL). WHAT ABOUT THE CHOLESTEROL LOWERING DRUGS CALLED STATINS? New research has shown that 1/2 the people who...

How to Eat Dark Chocolate With No Guilt for Valentine’s Day?

How to Eat Dark Chocolate With No Guilt for Valentine’s Day? Make dark chocolate your indulgence of choice, and consider organic dark chocolate that contains at least 75% cocoa. Not only will you be solving your sweet tooth craving, but you will be providing your body with heart and brain health benefits and in turn reduce blood pressure, inflammation and increase blood flow. Why does Chocolate Make Us Feel Good? It contains over 500 natural mood-elevating chemicals with theobromine at the top of the list. It’s a molecular cousin to caffeine but without the stimulating effects to the central nervous system. Chocolate also contains Phenylethylamine (PEA) which when eaten releases endorphins or “feel good chemicals”. That, along with serotonin, will have you feeling fine! Chocolate For Your HEART Yes, dark chocolate is low on the glycemic index(the measure of a food item’s impact on one’s blood sugar level). It is loaded with antioxidants, like polyphenols and flavenols, which are plant compounds. Studies have shown that dark chocolate and cocoa may improve blood flow and keep blood vessels healthy and improve our cells’ sensitivity to insulin and glucose. The cocoa found in chocolate triggers the production of nitric oxide in the blood which relaxes and dilates blood vessels allowing more blood to pass through them. In addition, these flavenoids found in cocao beans, red wine, green tea and cranberries are good to keep your blood pressure under control and your LDL’s or bad cholesterol levels in check. They help prevent free radicals from causing cell damage leading to heart disease. My favorite place to get my chocolate is at Luisa’s Chocolatiere...

Green is NOT ONLY for St Patrick’s Day

GREEN IS NOT ONLY FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY Are you interested in loosing weight or just staying in shape?  Eating green vegetables are filling, extremely nutritious and very low in calories.  In the amounts commonly consumed, green leafy vegetables provide an abundance of roughage or fiber, which is an important component of a healthful diet.  The greener the leaf, the higher the carotene content.   Carotene from leafy vegetables is more readily absorbed and utilized than that from yellow ones.  Fresh vegetable leaves are also good sources of vitamin C, unfortunately, much of this ascorbic acid is often lost before consumption, through oxidation and leaching during preparation.  Though little carotene is lost in cooking, portions of water-soluble vitamins and appreciable quantities of iron, magnesium, and phosphorus may be lost if the cooking water of leafy vegetables is discarded. On a calorie by-calorie-basis, green vegetables contain significantly more fiber than whole grains.  As an example:  2 slices of whole-wheat bread –about 140 calories, 4 gms of fiber, 140mgs of potassium vs 2 cups of broccoli—87 calories, 9 gms of fiber, 1,000mgs of potassium. Although it is recommended to consume a minimum of 25-30gms/day the average American consumes 15 gms of fiber/day.  Diets low in fiber may underlie or exacerbate constipation, appendicitis, hemorrhoids, deep-vein thrombosis, varicose veins, diverticulitis, hiatal hernia and gastroesophageal reflux.  Fiber is thought to help prevent colon cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Promoting good health includes the necessity to eat potassium-rich foods which are vegetables and fruits primarily, as well as animal protein and potatoes.  Research recommends 7,000-11,000mg of potassium/day which should come from your diet.  However, the average...
