Your 6 Steps to Avoiding Chemicals

  Your 6 Steps To Avoiding Chemicals It is estimated that we have a minimum of 40 neurotoxins & carcinogens in our blood & urine at all times. Studies have shown that almost everyone tested had significant levels of pathogens and varying levels of vitamin & mineral deficiencies. Much of this is due to contaminated soil, water & the air we breathe daily. Our crops are grown on soils depleted & grown with artificial fertilizers and our meats are consumed from animals given antibiotics & growth hormones to increase their weight. One of the major problems with toxins is that you cannot see, taste, smell or feel them. We do not realize we are being affected until we come down with a chronic illness after years of subtle and repetitive exposure. Toxins are 1 of the 6 Interferences to Wellness along with structural integrity, nutrition, allergies, electromagnetic interference and negative emotional patterns. A study published in the British Medical Journal estimated that 75% of most cancers are caused by environmental toxins and lifestyle factors which are stored in fatty tissues. Some of the effects of these toxins include: * Neurological disorders * Cancer * Nutritional Deficiencies * Hormone Imbalances–infertility, premature puberty, PMS, menopausal symptoms * Enzyme dysfunction * Fatigue, Headaches, Obesity * Muscle and Vision problems * Immune system issues, Allergies, Asthma, Chemical sensitivities * Chronic viral infections   WHAT ARE THE 6 STEPS TO KEEP YOU SAFE IN A WORLD OF CHEMICALS? Since most food products are contaminated with toxic chemicals buy and eat organic produce and free-range organic foods as often as possible. Avoid eating farm-raised fish...

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, 140 mgs of potassium vs 2 cups of broccoli—87 calories, 9 gms of fiber, 1,000 mgs 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,...

How To Decrease Calories During the Holidays

HOW TO DECREASE CALORIES DURING THE HOLIDAYS Enjoy eating without guilt.  If you overeat at one meal, move on and eat better for your next one.  Celebrations are about family & friends not food as the focus. Remember: balance, moderation and variety are the keys to health. Delete the word “DIE”t and CHEATING from your vocabulary. Before going to a party: Never go hungry- have some nuts, fruit, veggies, broth-based soup, hard-boiled egg, hummus, lo-fat cheese or yogurt, vegetable juice or protein shake. Also, drink 1-2 glasses of water. Take a catnap to avoid being tired therefore overeating & craving. Add an extra cardio work-out that week. Eat healthfully the week before going to a party. Bring your own food or dessert that you can eat. At the party: Choose a small plate and stroll around the buffet table to selectively choose your favorite must-have foods & desserts first. Then choose small portions of your favorite foods to taste only. (2 cupped handfuls) Fill ½ your plate with raw veggies to fill up on. Take a 20 minute break before refilling your plate. This will tell your brain you’re full so when you go back for seconds you will choose less high sugar/fat foods. If you don’t like a food you’re eating, don’t finish it. Chew slowly, really taste each bite and put your fork down regularly. Leave an empty space on your plate between each food item. Put everything you eat on a plate including that one piece of chocolate. Keep an arm’s distance or more from the food table when standing around talking. Focus on other things...

10 VITAL KEYS TO DIABETES PREVENTION

  10 VITAL  KEYS TO DIABETES PREVENTION    Did you know that the average American consumes more than 120 pounds of sugar per year, which is approximately 45 teaspoons per day? Did you know that recent statistics have shown that two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese and that thirty percent of American children are obese? According to the latest research out of the University of Missouri, one in four Americans are struggling with diabetes with the majority of them as type 2. In addition, millions of us are in a state of insulin resistance, or pre-diabetes, that could progress into diabetes. Diabetes can cause many serious health issues and is associated with obesity, heart disease, and increased mortality. It is the fifth deadliest disease in the United States. A preventative approach would be to make sure that blood glucose levels are stable throughout the day. Our brain needs a continuous level of blood sugar to avoid anxiety caused by blood sugar fluctuations. Are you at risk for diabetes? Do you have a family history of diabetes? Are you overweight? Do you have high blood pressure? Are your cholesterol levels abnormal? Are you over 45? Do you have a history of gestational diabetes? Drug Treatment the answer? A new meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials involved more than 33,000 people showed that drug treatment of type 2 diabetes is not only ineffective, it’s dangerous as well. These medications poison the enzymes in our body and disrupt the normal biochemical pathways. In general, a drug therapy protocol should treat the underlying cause of the illness that the drug is being...

IS IODINE REALLY NEEDED FOR BREAST HEALTH?

IS IODINE REALLY NEEDED FOR BREAST HEALTH?   Without adequate iodine levels, life itself is not possible. What correlation is there between iodine and your breasts? The breasts are one of the body’s main storage sites for iodine. A sufficient iodine level is needed for the protection and preservation of normal breast tissues. When iodine is depleted, the breasts and the thyroid gland will compete for whatever small amount of iodine is on hand. When these tissues are depleted, one may develop any of these issues: hypothyroidism, fibrocystic breast disease, auto-immune issues and thyroid or breast complaints including cancer. There is a lot of literature about Iodine. It has been the most researched mineral in treating fibrocystic breast disease, amongst other health related issues.
