Live Superfoods

An amazing purveyor of raw, organic, vegan foods. In addition to the Live Superfoods brand, they offer complementary foods, whole food supplements and personal care products from their industry’s finest suppliers.

Nutrition in its Purest Form:
As we’re sure you already know, most of our country’s food is grown using toxic chemicals, processed at high temperatures, irradiated or pasteurized to make sure no living organisms survive(!), and then “fortified” with ingredients that most of us can’t pronounce. In the process, much of the nutrients and enzymes that our bodies crave are lost, or at least severely compromised.

 

 

They’re here to assure you that it doesn’t have to be that way. Their goal is to provide their customers with a great selection of pure, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods. Their “Nutrition in its Purest Form” mantra is something they take very seriously.

 

Quality Products that support the Dr. Weston A. Price philosophy.

 

Organic:
Their company owns and operates a USDA-certified organic packaging facility in Bend Oregon. They purchase raw ingredients which they package in consumer-size packages and sell directly to the public. They pride themselves on having a very rapid inventory turnover, which ensures that their customers receive the freshest possible products. Their organic products are certified by Oregon Tilth.

Raw:
They start with the purest ingredients from 5 continents. Their ingredients come from farmers and processors, who all share our contempt for processed foods and have made the investment in, and commitment to, low temperature drying processes. The results is nutrient-dense foods with their enzymatic life force intact.

Kosher:
All of heir Live Superfoods products are kosher certified. Even if your diet isn’t kosher, you may still appreciate that their foods, facility and processes have undergone the scrutiny of kosher inspectors. Their kosher products are certified by Earth Kosher.

Vegan:
No animal flesh or fats are used in the production of their products.

Gluten-Free:
All Live Superfoods products are gluten-free and many of their third party products are too.

 

 

Wild Harvested:
Several of the products they offer are wild harvested from the Amazon jungle basin. These products are not USDA certified organic, but the importers provide them with a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) from a third-party testing facility which tests for herbicides, pesticides, ecolli, salmonella and other contaminants.

 

Raw Organic Goji Berries

 

Eco-Friendly:
100% of their shipping cartons and packaging materials are eco-friendly. They start with recyclable cartons that they assemble using recyclable paper tape. They’ve replaced bubble wrap with corrugated cardboarding fluting and fill the void with kraft paper and biodegradable starch peanuts.

Love Your Derma

Derma Love2Your skin is the largest organ of the body. Yes, your skin is in fact an organ, just like your lungs, heart, and liver. Love your Derma, or skin. It makes a good covering for you, keeping all of the outside stuff out, and the inside stuff in. And you’d probably look pretty scary without it. But your Derma is much more than just a wrapper for your body. It actually has many jobs.

Your Derma helps regulate your body temperature by either releasing or retaining heat as needed, and it’s also an organ of protection. Your Derma also guards your muscles, nerves, and other internal organs from injury, and it defends the body against invading bacteria as well. Of course, the Derma also helps us experience the world. Through our skin we feel the sensations of heat, cold, pain, and pressure.


Discover Yves Rocher Botanical Body Care

The Derma has thousands of sensory nerve fibers specialized just for these purposes. All of this occurs in an organ that covers nearly 20 square feet, and weighs about 6 pounds. Atopic Dermatitis is an itchy inflammation of your skin. It may affect any area of your skin but it typically appears on your arms and behind your knees. It tends to flare up periodically and then subside. The cause however is unknown but it may result from a combination of inherited tendencies.

Self-care measures, such as avoiding irritable soaps and detergents. Certain creams and ointments can also cause this nuisance however it may help with itching especially if it is associated from unusually dry skin. If symptoms distract you from your daily routines or prevent you from sleeping you may want to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist.


Yves Rocher Creator of Botanical Beauty

Signs and symptoms of atopic dermatitis may include red to brownish-gray colored patches, itching especially in the evenings, small raised bumps which may leak fluids and crust over when scratched. Thickened, cracked and scaly Derma will become raw and sensitive from excessive scratching. A usual problematic issue may be from dust mites living and breeding in your clothing, bedding, mattress and carpeting.

One such occurrence has happened in apartment complexes where they allow pets and smoking, both causing excessive dander to accumulate in the walls and air ducts. Buildings that are not properly maintained or effectively cleaned between tenants have a large number of legal cases against them and it is highly recommended doing your due diligence before signing a lease.

Dust mite eradication is a complex procedure and is very costly to the building owners. However as difficult as it is, it does represent a huge health concern just as detrimental as black mold and should not be taken lightly. Regular cleaning and disinfecting is of standard hygiene importance. However one will never be rid of these pesky critters too microscopic to see with the naked eye.

Various organic products are available and I recommend staying away from the pesticide based products. A simple solution of Neem Oil combined with an essence of lavender and cinnamon is very successful in keeping these critters away from your bedding and pillows. Factors that worsen atopic dermatitis are having been infected with Staphylococcus bacteria.

This Staph bacterium multiplies rapidly when the Derma barrier has been broken and fluid is present in the skin in turn worsening symptoms, particularly in young children. Other factors that can worsen atopic dermatitis includes dry skin, long hot baths or showers, stress, excessive sweating, rapid changes in temperature, low humidity, solvents, cleaners soaps and detergents. Wool products or man-made fabrics and clothing, dust, sand and cigarette smoke.


Certain food such as eggs, milk, soy, fish and wheat can have an allergic reaction all needing to escape thru the skin as the body detoxifies itself from the consumption of these. When atopic dermatitis occurs in infants, it’s called infantile eczema. This condition may continue thru childhood and into adolescence. Infantile eczema often involves an oozing, crusting rash, mainly on the skin of the face and scalp but it can occur anywhere.

Noticeable occurrences involve a dryer skin and tend to be a red-brown-gray in color. In adolescence, the skin may be scaly or thickened and easily irritated. If you suspect your child has atopic dermatitis or you notice the above signs and symptoms, see your child’s doctor immediately. Early, effective treatment helps keep atopic dermatitis from worsening.

The more severe it becomes the more difficult it is to control. Most experts believe that atopic dermatitis has a genetic basis. It is thought to be connected to asthma and hay fever, but that theory is still being questioned. Not everyone suffers from all at the same time however they do seem to present together in families of those affected.


Yves Rocher : The Creator of Botanical Beauty

Sometimes it may seem like your skin is impossible to manage, especially when you wake up and find a huge zit on your nose or a cold sore at the corner of your mouth. The good news is that there are ways to prevent and treat common skin problems. Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and a mild soap made for people with acne.

Gently massage your face with circular motions. Don’t scrub. Over washing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated. After cleansing, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends applying an over-the-counter (no prescription needed) lotion containing benzoyl peroxide. This will decrease oil and bacteria.

Don’t pop pimples. It’s tempting, but here’s why you shouldn’t: Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring. If you notice a pimple coming before a big event, like the prom, a dermatologist can often treat it for you with less risk of scarring or infection.

Avoid touching your face with your fingers or leaning your face on objects that collect sebum and skin residue like your phone. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.


If you wear glasses or sunglasses, make sure you clean them frequently to keep oil from clogging the pores around your eyes and nose. If you get acne on your body, try not to wear tight clothes. They don’t allow skin to breathe and may cause irritation. Scarves, headbands, and caps can collect dirt and oil, too.

Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. When buying makeup, make sure you choose brands that say “noncomedogenic” or “nonacnegenic” on the label. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it. Keep hair clean and out of your face to prevent additional dirt and oil from clogging your pores.

Protect your skin from the sun. It may seem like a tan masks acne, but it’s only temporary. A tan may worsen your acne, not improve it. Tanning also causes damage to skin that will eventually lead to wrinkles and increase your risk of skin cancer.


If you’re concerned about acne, talk to a dermatologist. Dermatologists offer a range of treatments that help to prevent and acne scars. A dermatologist can help you find the treatment method that’s best for you and can also give you lots of useful tips for dealing with acne and caring for your skin type. Some salons and spas have trained skin specialists, called estheticians, who can offer advice and skin care treatments.

Replacing Your Toxic Enviroment

bathroom-sink-vanityAs we read the occasional headlines that yet another standard ingredient in the products we use every day turns out to be a toxic counter to the very health and cleanliness the product is supposed to promote. Sometimes the easiest way to ensure that you’re using the healthiest products, from soap to toothpaste is to simply make your own. You can easily make safe, non toxic effective toiletries including Shampoo, Soaps and Deodorant at home using simple and healthy ingredients.  A great way to start eliminating your toxic environmental products is to start in the bathroom.

 

Everything we use to clean up is really a toxic mess.  If you’ve ever read the labels on health and hygiene products, you know it can be a challenge to find a product that doesn’t contain long lists of toxic ingredients you can’t even pronounce, let alone know what they are or what they’re for and the havoc it can cause your body from repeated use.

One can easily argue that most of these ingredients are not in the amounts that can be hazardous to your health, however when you really look into how many toxic ingredients we consume every day from the foods we eat, to the products we use on our bodies, to the soaps we wash our dishes and clothes in, to the chemicals we come into contact with unwillingly like second hand smoke, gasoline fumes we breathe when we fuel our cars to the air we breathe around freeways and roads.  It is no wonder we are a toxic wasteland and our health is paying for it all.


Let’s take a look at some of the basics.  The first thing we need to take a look at is the quality of your tooth paste.  If it has fluoride, or any other ingredients to whiten, or kill germs or even un-natural sweeteners, it is toxic to your body. Here is a great tooth paste you can make using all natural ingredients.  Use a fifty/fifty ratio of coconut oil to baking soda, start with a small batch and use a couple of tablespoons of each.

Add a few drops of peppermint or spearmint essential oil, and a bit of Stevia for sweetness.  After mixing your toxic free toothpaste, place it in a glass jar with a lid, and this does not need to be refrigerated.  Use just like you would your old toxic toothpaste.

Let’s take a look at the soaps. Unless you work on dirty and greasy engines all day, you really do not need any soap with industrial names you cannot pronounce.  A simple soap is Shea Butter Soap which is made by taking 2 cups of vegan glycerin soap base, melted in a double boiler, 2 tablespoons of Shea butter melted separately, and then add several drops of your favorite essential oil.  I use lavender for my evening shower soap and peppermint for the mornings and after a good workout.  Mix all these ingredients well, and pour into molds similar to small food storage containers, and let cool.


Raw Organic Vegan Foods

Shampoo has an average of fifteen known chemicals that are hazardous to you and your skin.  Why we consider even using this stuff that can take stains off concrete will always be a mystery to me.  Some of the ingredients to avoid are sodium laurel sulfate, tetrasodium and propylene glycol.  Look them up in a dictionary or simply use an online thesaurus and I can assure you will never consider using this stuff on your body.  To make a simple natural shampoo, use some of these great alternatives:

 

Baking Soda: Works great as a shampoo alternative. Mildly alkaline, baking soda deep cleans your hair from dirt and hair products. Mix about one tablespoon in one cup of water. Use an empty shampoo bottle, water bottle, or a squeeze bottle to dispense in hair just like shampoo and rinse well.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar: Make a hair rinse mixing 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar with a quart of water. Don’t worry about the vinegar smell; it will evaporate after a while. This mixture adds shine and works great on dandruff.


Olive Oil: A wonderful conditioner and hair mask. Wet your hair slightly and add about a teaspoon of olive oil and rub specially on the ends. Wrap your hair inside a towel or shower cap and let it stand up to an hour. Wash well. Your hair will be silky soft and shiny.

 

Avocado and Honey: Mash these ingredients together and rub the mixture on your hair. This is a super-moisturizing hair mask you can use once a week to keep your locks healthy.

Deodorants are applied under the arms, and if you take a look at our bodies anatomy, our arm pits are designed to serve a certain purpose.  The arrangement of the chest wall, shoulder bones and muscles, and the upper arm create a small hollow called the armpit. The armpit is the underside of the shoulder joint, and is among the warmest areas of the body.

The armpit is also called the axilla and allows for blood and lymph vessels serving the arm to travel through the armpit. There are more than 20 lymph nodes, (small lumps of tissue that are part of the body’s lymphatic system, which helps fight infection) in the armpit. These lymph nodes normally cannot be felt through the skin. The armpits have a high concentration of hair follicles and sweat glands.

Applying anything chemically based in these areas is a huge cause of concern and should not be taken lightly.  Take a look at your deodorant’s ingredient list, did you see something like Parabens, Triclosan and  Propylene glycol?  If you did, be shocked at what these chemicals can do to your lymphatic system.  So now it’s good to remember why you might want to choose a natural deodorant in the first place.  Conventional products tend to contain a whole host of best to avoid substances including hormone disruptors, petrochemicals, lung irritants, and other suspect ingredients.

If you search the Internet, you’ll also find quite a bit of discussion about links between deodorant chemicals and both Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer, these links are unproven, but the specter of a problem is enough for some people to avoid conventional deodorants all together.  Here are a few natural alternatives you can make at home that really work.


This recipe is easy to make, inexpensive and works better than commercial brands and it doesn’t stain your clothes! You’ll just have to make your own batch to see how heavenly the scent of coconut oil is when mixed with spicy essential oils.

Ingredients

1/3 cup coconut oil (solid state)

1/4 cup baking soda (aluminum-free)

1/4 cup arrowroot powder

Add Your favorite essential oils (optional)

Instructions

Mix the baking soda and arrowroot powder in a glass bowl.
Add the coconut oil (do not warm or melt it) and use a fork or pastry blender to thoroughly blend it into the dry ingredients.  Add 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oils and blend completely.
Add more coconut oil or arrowroot powder/baking soda if needed until the texture is about the same consistency as commercial deodorant.

Scoop the mixture into a small jar or container and store at room temperature. To apply, use your fingers to scoop out a pea-size amount of the deodorant and massage it into your armpits daily or as needed. Allow a minute or two for the deodorant to set before getting dressed.

These are just three of the most commonly used needs that we consume every day.  If there are special and unique products you use I suggest, get on the internet and find all your replacements and remove all toxins from your body.  Not just on the inside but also on the outside.  You will feel a huge difference in your health and wellbeing.

Healthy Eating on a Budget

When looking at healthy eating on a budget and see it getting thinner as compared to one’s own waist line we ask ourselves, how can I continue to afford to feed my family and yet maintain my budget for groceries. As the years go by it seems that the costs for a healthy diet grows. Production in an alpha mind power environment costs more and more therefore the costs are passed onto the consumer.

The choices are simple; we either change the ingredients or pay more for them. This leaves us in a whole new dynamic n how to stay either economically or physically healthy.

Merrithew Health & Fitness Yoga
Creating healthy menu items for your lunch and dinner is your biggest expense. Generally the grocery store is least busy in the morning; remember to not go to the store hungry, this will lead to buying with your eyes instead of your pocketbook. When healthy eating on a budget, stock your cupboards with items that are quick and easy to cook and yet kind to your wallet. Keep an eye out for sale items and use coupons as much as possible. Keep in mind that coupons are created with a cost in mind and generally apply to more expensive, processed items. Coupons make manufacturers more money by getting you to think it’s a great buy when in fact they put disclaimers on them forcing you to buy more to get the savings.


Live Superfoods - The Raw Superfoods Superstore

Some items that will benefit your health without gouging your pocketbook are listed as follows; Beans and Lentils are a great source of proteins that can replace a meal normally containing meats. Stay away from the canned versions and get it fresh. They make nutritious soups with the aid of fresh vegetables. Leave the canned broths and consumes out since their base is salt. The legumes have a natural tendency to release a broth as you cook them without draining.

Brown rice is a great addition and also helps replace the meat and veggie cravings. Although brown rice is slightly more expensive than white, the nutritional value is worth it. Pastas are a great substitute and be sure to look for whole grains or gluten free. Also pastas made with rice flour is another rice alternative for variety. Soups cannot be beat for their nutritional values and convenience. Think about making soups in a slow cooker as it tends to keep the values in the ingredients. Soups are a great way to use up leftovers and help with healthy eating on a budget.

Fresh vegetables and fruits are a must to curb the expense of snacking budgets. Most fruits like pineapples and oranges and apples are high in fructose and helps curb those sugar cravings. Make sure to purchase them regularly for freshness.


Raw Gluten-Free Superfoods

Veggie patties are another source of replacing expensive ground beef and also aid in maintaining your health. Keep meats and fish as a last-minute meal, fresh tuna can be cooked and then frozen in individual packages instead of canned and that will also eliminate sodium intake. Remember that anything canned has preservatives, or a sodium alternative. Stay away from canned foods as much as possible.

Use as much natural herbs as possible to avoid buying processed spices. If possible keep an herb garden for an endless supply without the cost and besides the benefit of fresh herbs, tending the garden will help in keeping a quiet mind and relieving stress.

High Blood Pressure Reduction Measures

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a major health problem that affects many people, a lot of which don’t even realize that they have it. Often, people are told that changes in their diet and exercise habits are enough to control blood pressure, without the use of medication.


House of Nutrition

Reducing your sodium intake is one of the most important factors in reducing your blood pressure level. Those affected with high blood pressure often claim that reducing their sodium intake reduces their blood pressure as well. It is important to learn which foods are high in sodium and limit your intake or avoid them all together.

Eating more fruits and vegetables and even some grains increases your intake of important vitamins, minerals, and fiber. However with our busy lifestyles we can hardly find the time to stop at the store and take the time to sort thru the groceries we need to maintain a healthy routine, however I found that studies suggest that people with a diet high in these foods and low in fats can reduce blood pressure in a small, but significant way.


House of Nutrition

Adding exercise to this change in diet can improve the blood pressure reduction. It helps to prevent and to control hypertension, and it is said that people who are active in exercise have lower death rates than their sedentary counterparts, even when they have the same blood pressure. An added bonus is that studies suggest that exercise not only reduces the risk for cardiovascular and other diseases, but can help prevent obesity, which is another high blood pressure risk factor.


Better Health in Just 30 days!

Exercise is said to be the foundation for successful behavioral change programs. Gym memberships can be a hassle, so I investigated several health and fitness options available that with a small investment you can now own a great home gym, and with your home gym is just a few clicks away. Exercise has been shown to make people feel positive about themselves and helps to reduce stress, a factor that not only raises blood pressure, but makes you feel less inclined to stick to the positive plans you’ve set in motion.


House of Nutrition

Eating well and exercising are the cornerstone to reducing your blood pressure level. However, they are not the only factors to a successful blood pressure reduction. Limiting your alcohol and caffeine intake can make an extreme difference. You should strive to drink these things only in moderation, or not at all. If you smoke, quitting can also make a profound difference.

These are not things to be taken lightly. You may find that you cannot simply give these things up. In fact, in order to completely rid yourself of these behaviors can take months, even a year or more in some instances!


Free Subscription to Life Extension magazine

Reducing stress is another highly important factor in reducing your blood pressure. However choosing the right stress relief program just for you can be all time consuming and is a lifelong task, but can prove to be one of the most important things you can do for your health. By seeing the vast variety offered.   If you find that you have stress that seems out of control, taking a stress management workshop may be in your future.

Though it is said that diet and exercise can reduce the need for blood pressure medication, it is important to discuss any and all lifestyle changes with your doctor, who can instruct you in any reduction of your current medication dosages.

Supplements to Replace Exercise

SuplementsAs diet plans, exercise fads and nutritional supplements flood the market, it can be difficult to discern fact from fiction. There are plenty to choose from for every health concern and ailment.  Usually they all follow the pharmaceutical trends.  For example, we see on the media advertisements for joint problems resulting for exercise and all of a sudden there is a big health fad on how Omega 3 helps relieve joint pains.  Then we see ads for cold and flu from lack of exercise and poof all the natural herb remedies for the cold flu appear.

As we learn more and more about health and nutrition, we realize that our immune system is being overwhelmed with all sorts of attacks about exercise.  If we keep a diligent nutritional routine along with eliminating from our diets those things that are toxic, our immune system can reduce the need for medications and nutritional supplements naturally.  Allowing our immunity to combat the viruses we encounter in our daily ventures. There is no better medicine then what we produce in our bodies naturally.


On another note eating healthy and physical exercise is important to keep the immune cycle in motion.  Our body’s natural anti-oxidants along with our muscular system produce key ingredients into our blood stream, allowing our bodies to increase immunity to toxins.  Old school gurus have differentiated training routines to bulk up muscles against training routines to tone muscles with exercise. Cardiovascular machines display a variety of programs designed to increase endurance, burn fat and circulate the vital systems our bodies need to get to the problem and resolve the issues.

Despite the complication, nature has defined specific biological realities that cannot be thwarted. Toning workout routines for women doing more exercise generally involve the arms, hips and abdominal muscles working under extremely light loads to achieve results. This is often done to prevent the development of large muscles.

However, the fact is that large muscle growth is the direct result of an overabundance of the male hormone testosterone. Women have insignificant amounts making large muscle growth nearly impossible even with exercise. Women who have higher levels of testosterone exhibit secondary sex characteristics unique to men.


They include the growth of facial hair, deepened voice, angular facial features and more. Toning workout routines for women should completely fatigue muscles within 10 to 15 repetitions of exercise. This causes muscles to respond to load and become stronger and more tone to compensate for resistance.

Overall body exercise that includes the large muscle of the buttocks, thighs, chest and back place a huge demand on the body causing it to respond favorably. Compound exercises work many of the major muscles of the body and can provide a complete workout in roughly 20 minutes. Additionally, cardiovascular exercises to relieve stress require oxygen and over time increasing our endurance to keep on working out and effectively tone.

Exercise combats chemicals released in the body during stressful times. Thirty minutes of cardio exercises to relieve stress is often sufficient for stress reduction and should be done in conjunction with a healthy diet for best physical results. Grounding meditation and relaxation techniques also help improve our minds ability to be focused and allow our bodies to rest effectively.  This in turn helps our immune system to continue combating toxins.


Burn up to 60% of your body fat

Looking at our daily diets really can improve the way we feel and change moods favorably.  Endorphins released during physical exercise and activities makes us happier. The relief of this happiness allows our bodies to rest more effectively.  This cycle is often seen as the “Glow” in another.  This glow is experienced thru emotional energies often seen when emotions like love, intuitiveness, and peace surround our bodies.

Similar to the studies of plants that tend to grow stronger when talked to, or how a pet seems more energetic when it is attended to in a playful manner even our babies benefit from regular stimulations from bonding with the parents thru exercise.  We as people need the same stimulants.

Rather than chugging down an energy drink loaded with caffeine, it is much more beneficial to our bodies if we were to take a quick run or go for a brisk walk.  Our feelings of lethargy after eating a meal tends to be greater when that meal is loaded with dairy products, grease, carbs etc…

All these effects that tend to convert into sugars that enter our blood stream, give us the high and energetic feeling while we are eating and then the crash comes as our bodies are now depleting our blood stream by diverting all the oxygenated blood to our digestive system away from the brain.  If we succumb to resting and not doing any type of regular exercise, those sugars are quickly converted into fats which the body stores and accumulates.


TurboJam - Chalene GUARANTEES RESULTS

Over time we start resembling that muffin top or begin the bloating process and fighting to get into our clothes.  The vicious cycle commences and now we need external stimulants every day to get thru it all.  Stress slowly eases in and we lose the ability to sleep, and we take stuff for that too.  We have evolved into a symptomatic non-active society where we are treating symptoms with external medications whether natural or pharmaceutical and not directing the cause.

Build your immunity by creating a detoxing regimen for about one week per month.  Build your endurance and your mind with exercise, quiet mind yoga and grounding meditation.  Eat a healthy diet rich in nutrients and eliminate the toxic intakes.  Over time you will naturally see that your body can handle the common cold without getting affected even if the person next to you sneezes in your face.


Body Gospel - Have faith in your weight loss

While vitamins and whole food nutrients are beneficial, without due diligence in avoiding toxic intake of bad foods, your efforts will go un-noticed. No change can possibly take effect without eliminating the toxic environment.  This is like breathing oxygen from a tank while standing in a smoke filled room, the oxygen can help you breathe, however if you don’t remove the smoke, eventually the oxygen will be of no use especially when it runs out.

Once you have detoxed, and eliminated the consumption of toxic foods and additives in your environment, you will feel a great boost in natural energy, your body will feel lighter and your endurance to stress will increase.  Peace of mind, body and soul will take over and there will be nothing you can’t handle.  A simple change for a longer lasting life span will leave you happier and satisfied.  Suddenly you will feel a difference, especially when you see that sleeping thru the night is a big relief.

Indian Cuisine – Your Path to a Better You!

Indian cuisine encompasses a wide variety of regional cuisines native to India. Given the range of diversity in soil type, climate and occupations, these cuisines vary significantly from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables, and fruits.  Indian food is also heavily influenced by religious and cultural choices.

The development of these cuisines has been shaped by Hindu and Jain beliefs, in particular vegetarianism which is a common dietary trend in Indian society.  There has also been Arab influence on North Indian cuisine from the years of Mughal and Delhi Sultanate rule.

Indian cuisine has been and is still evolving, as a result of the nation’s cultural interactions with other societies.  Historical incidents such as foreign invasions, trade relations and colonialism have also played a role in introducing certain foods to the country. For instance, potato, a staple of North Indian diet was brought to India by the Portuguese, who also introduced chilies and breadfruit.

Indian cuisine has also shaped the history of international relations, the spice trade between India and Europe is often cited by historians as the primary catalyst for Europe’s Age of Discovery.  Spices were bought from India and traded around Europe and Asia. It has also influenced other cuisines across the world, especially those from Southeast Asia, the British Isles and the Caribbean.

Indian cuisine reflects a 5000-year history of various groups and cultures interacting with the subcontinent, leading to diversity of flavors and regional cuisines found in modern-day India. Later British and Portuguese influence added to the already diverse Indian Cuisine.

The beginnings of Indian Cuisine lie with the ancient Indian civilizations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro.  Since then, Indian Food has been influenced by a number of factors and each of these has made the food of India known the world over.

Experience yourself the diverse and wonderful dishes and experiment with cooking and tasting some of the most popular food recipes of the various regions of India. Hindu culture has a distinct style of cooking and eating.

The staples of Indian cuisine are rice, atta (a special type of whole wheat flour), and at least five dozen varieties of pulses, the most important of which are chana, toor, urad, and mung.  Chana is used in different forms, may be whole or processed in a mill that removes the skin. Most Indian curries are fried in vegetable oil, however many substitutes can be used such as coconut oil or even mustard seed oil.

The most important spices in Indian cuisine are the chili pepper, black mustard seed, cumin, turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, coriander and hing.  Another very important spice is garam masala which is usually a powder of five or more spices comprising of cardamom, cinnamon and clove.  Some leaves that are widely used is the bay leaf, coriander leaf, and mint leaf.  Typically in south Indian cuisine, curry leaves are used commonly.  In sweet dishes, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, saffron and essence of rose petal are used.

Indian Chinese cuisine originated in the 19th century among the Chinese community of Calcutta, during the immigration of Hakka Chinese from Canton (present-day Guangzhou) seeking to escape the Opium Wars and political instability in the region. Exposure to local Indian cuisine, they incorporated many spices and cooking techniques into their own cuisine, thus creating a unique fusion of Indian and Chinese cuisine.

After 1947, many Cantonese immigrants fleeing political repression under Mao Zedong, opened their own restaurants in Calcutta, whose dishes combined aspects of Indian cuisine with Cantonese cuisine. Indian Chinese cuisine is heavily derived from traditional Chinese cuisine, it bears little resemblance to its Chinese counterpart. The dishes tend to be flavored with cumin, coriander seeds, and turmeric, which with a few regional exceptions, are not traditionally associated with Chinese cuisine. Chili, ginger, garlic and yogurt are also frequently used in dishes.

 

Popular dishes include Chicken Manchurian, Chicken lollipop, Chili chicken, Hakka noodles, Hunan chicken, and Szechwan fried rice. Soups such as man chow soup and sweet corn soup are very popular, whereas famous desserts include ice cream on honey-fried noodles and date pancakes. Indians consider a healthy breakfast (known in North India as nashta) important. They generally prefer to drink tea or coffee with breakfast, though food preferences vary regionally. North Indian people prefer roti, parathas, and a vegetable dish, accompanied by achar (pickles) and some curd. People of western India prefer dhokla and milk and South Indians prefer idlis and dosas, generally accompanied by various chutneys.

Lunch in India usually consists of a main dish of rice in the south and east, or whole wheat rotis in the north and west. It typically includes two or three kinds of vegetables, and sometimes items such as kulcha, naan, or parathas. Along with dessert, paan (betel leaves), which aid digestion, are often eaten after lunch in parts of India. Indian families often gather for “evening breakfast,” similar to tea time to talk, drink tea and eat snacks. Dinner is considered as the main meal of the day.

There are many dietary restrictions that people follow based on the religion or faith they profess. Muslims in India do not eat pork and many Hindu communities consider beef taboo. Since it is believed that Hindu scriptures condemn cow slaughter, beef consumption has been banned in many states in India. Followers of the Swaminarayan sect do not eat garlic and onions because they are advised against it in the Vachanamrut. Jains follow a strict form of vegetarianism, known as Jain vegetarianism, which in addition to being completely vegetarian, also excludes potatoes and other root vegetables because when the root is pulled up, organisms that live around the root also die.

Traditionally, meals in India were eaten while seated either on the floor or on very low stools or cushions. Food is most often eaten with the right hand rather than cutlery. Often roti is used to scoop curry without allowing it to touch the hands. In the wheat-producing north, a piece of roti is gripped with the thumb and middle finger and ripped off while holding the roti down with the index finger. Traditional serving styles vary regionally throughout India. Contact with other cultures has affected Indian dining etiquette. For example, the Anglo-Indian middle class commonly uses spoons and forks, as is traditional in Western culture.

In South India, cleaned banana leaves, which can be disposed of after meals, are used for serving food. When hot food is served on banana leaves, the leaves add distinctive aromas and taste to the food. Leaf plates are less common today, except on special occasions.

Get Regal with Your Kegel

ManWoman3Thinking Kegel exercises are just for women, well think again!

First you need to clearly know what Kegels muscles are.  First announced in 1948 by Dr. Arnold Kegel, a Kegel is a pelvic floor exercise, more commonly called a Kegel exercise.  This consists of repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor, now sometimes colloquially referred to as the “Kegel muscles”.

 

Kegel Exercises are for both men and women and are focused on strengthening the muscles that are responsible for controlling your pelvic floor. With the right practice Kegel exercises can be done discreetly just about anytime and anywhere. These muscles support your bladder and bowel and also affect and improve sexual function.

Many factors can weaken your pelvic floor muscles, including the surgical removal of the prostate called (radical prostatectomy) and also the conditions of diabetes and an overactive bladder.

The benefits of doing Kegel exercises is being able to correct if not completely free yourself of urinary or fecal incontinence.  If you dribble after urination shortly after you left the bathroom, studies suggest that you may be experiencing a weak pelvic floor.

sum4s5_1

How to do Kegel Exercises;

First you need to find the right muscles and identify which muscles they are.  A simple way of doing this is to stop urination mid-stream and tighten the muscles that keep you from passing gas.  These are your pelvic floor muscles.  For men, if you contract your pelvic floor muscles while looking in the mirror, the base of your penis will move closer to your abdomen and your testicles will rise.

Dr. Williams' Joint Advantage Gold

Kegel is a popular prescribed exercise for pregnant women to prepare the pelvic floor for physiological stresses of the later stages of pregnancy and childbirth.  Kegel exercises are said to be good for treating vaginal prolapse and preventing uterine prolapse.  The many actions performed by Kegel muscles include holding in urine and avoiding defecation.

Reproducing this type of muscle action can strengthen the Kegel muscles. The action of slowing or stopping the flow of urine may be used as a test of correct pelvic floor exercise technique but should not be practiced as a regular exercise to urinary retention.

Perfect your technique;

Once you have identified your pelvic floor muscles, empty your bladder and lie on your back with your knees bent and apart.  Tighten your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for three seconds and then relax for three seconds.  Try it a few times in a row and do not overdo it.  Slowly with regular reps, your pelvic floor muscles will get stronger, and then try doing the Kegel exercise while sitting, standing or walking.

kegelexercisepelvicfloor

Maintain your focus;

As with any repetitious exercise, to achieve the best results, focus on tightening only your pelvic floor muscles.  Be careful not to flex the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks.  Avoid holding your breath and breathe evenly and freely throughout the exercise.  Release and repeat three times per day and aim for at least three sets of ten repetitions per day.

When to do your Kegels;

Make Kegel exercises part of your workout routine and daily routine.  Fit in a set every time you do a routine task such as brushing your teeth or shaving.  While taking a shower or simply waiting in line at the bank.  Do another set each time after you urinate or have a bowel movement, this will also aid in getting rid of those last few drops of urine. Contract your pelvic floor muscles just before or during any activity that puts pressure on your abdomen, such as sneezing, coughing, laughing or heavy lifting.  By now you should have at least completed two reps or more just by reading this post.

Dr. Sinatra's NattoPlus

If you’re having trouble;

If you’re experiencing difficulties doing Kegel exercises, don’t be embarrassed to ask for help.  And I am not suggesting you hire a Kegel personal trainer or a spotter.  Ask your doctor or any other health care provider to give you important feedback so that you can effectively learn to isolate and strengthen the correct muscles. In some cases, biofeedback training may also help.  In a biofeedback session, your doctor inserts a small probe into your rectum.  As you relax and contract your pelvic floor muscles, a monitor displays the measure of your pelvic floor activity.

How and when to expect results;

If you do your Kegels regularly, you can expect results in as little as noticing less frequent urine leakage.  Usually within three to six weeks.  For continued benefits, make Kegel exercises a permanent part of your daily routine. Both male and female, urinary incontinence is preventable and manageable without extreme medications or surgery.  Much like many other ailments troubling our society today, prevention is key, however if prevention is a little too late coming, these exercises and routines will help improve your quality of life and continue “Your Path to a Better You!”

Dr. Lark's Energy Vitalizer

A tip to make Kegel exercises a habit;

Stay consistent, do your exercises at the same time each day, maybe first thing in the morning or as you watch the nightly news about the exciting advances of bestwaytohealth.com or even when reading the paper about us.  Always remember the benefits outweigh the obvious and costly medical corrective measures found in today’s medicinal practices, and lastly pay attention to your progress.  Over time you will see and notice awesome results and improvement.

Juicing For Health

NutritionThroughout the world, we all know that juicing is part of a beneficial way to a healthier life. Juicing on a regular basis has shown to increase energy, vitality and overall well-being. Juicing has become popular since the amount of Vegetables and Fruits the average person would need to consume for an improved lifestyle would be so immense that it would result on an ongoing regimen of eating all day long and every day. Constantly purchasing, preparing and masticating would require an all time consuming and tedious habit.

Most of our time is spent working, providing and fulfilling responsibilities for our employers and families. Leaving very little time in between for joyful activities we as individuals like to partake in much less eating healthy or even sleeping sleeping. So if we were to add in the necessary time to shop for, preparing and eating what our bodies need to become and stay healthy, it would simply not get done and eventually forgotten all together. Therefore we suffer the consequences thru debilitating our health.

That’s where the importance of juicing comes into the picture. Finding a juicer that not only is able to juice fruits but vegetables at the same time and combining these into an easy step can be a tedious task all together, so we took our time in reviewing some of the best juicers on the market and found one that fits all the categories we were looking for. Not only can this particular juicer take care of fruits and vegetables easily, it also gives you the added benefit of extracting the “MILK” from the most important aspects of your daily diet, favorite nuts and seeds.

Making your own home made Almond Milk, or butters is no easy task for most juicers available to the average consumer. A machine required to make nut milks and butters would mean stepping up to the industrialization area and have a machine that barely fits inside your garage. Now for the first time, you can experience all this in just a square foot of kitchen counter space.

Juice for Life Juicers

Reviews;
Five Stars! This juicer works perfectly
By Maxwell Johnson “Cook, Musician and Teacher”

Unlike many people who write juicer reviews, I am not a long-time juicer. In fact, despite being a graduate of one of the premier culinary schools in America and having worked as a professional chef, I have never juiced anything in my life. A friend who is very much into healthy eating persuaded me to try some of his various juice combinations and after a taste or two I knew I had to have one. Then followed lots of research to find the best choice for my pocketbook and my lifestyle. As a sometime kitchen professional, I have a fondness for “commercial” equipment and so I ended up lusting over a Norwalk. But $2500 for a juicer the size of Wrigley Field with a hydraulic press…too much.

I debated long and hard over centrifugal versus auger or gear driven machines. Now, I should stop here for a disclaimer. I do not drink juice to detoxify my liver or to prevent/treat cancer, heart disease, gallstones, or flat feet. I drink it because I like the taste and because it gets raw fruit and vegetables into my body in a way that has to be healthy. Please, I do not need any Gerson folks or other enthusiasts to comment telling me that I should…you-fill-in. Don’t take that as a put-down. I respect the choices people make for their health and, in fact, many juicing enthusiasts are doubtless much healthier than I.

Juice For Life Power Juicers

The implication of this is that I don’t seek out organic produce unless I can get it cheap, nor do I worry about how much of the good stuff is going to be lost to oxidation if there is foam in the juice. That just isn’t who I am.

Because I no longer have a scullery worker to wash up behind my efforts, I wanted something that was easy to clean. Because I enjoy the product a lot more than the process, I wanted a machine that didn’t require me to do a lot of food prep. Because I’m not wasteful by nature, I wanted a device that extracted as much juice as possible.

I was drawn to the Breville Juice Fountain Elite. It is hefty stainless steel and you can dump whole apples or beets into it without cutting or chopping. Fast. Easy. But only a one-year warranty, a well-documented tendency to throw food all over the kitchen and considerable commentary about its limited ability to extract maximum juice. I looked at juicers from Omega, Green Star, Kuvings, Champion, Hurom…the list goes on and on. While they got good reviews, there were also comments about durability, size, speed, and so on.

Seen On TV Products

I chose a lesser-known juicer, The Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro, The description of the innards is a bit vague, even on Jay’s website so let me tell you exactly how it works. In essence, it is a centrifugal juicer. It shreds the fruit and vegetables and spins them against a fine, cone-shaped stainless steel filter, literally slinging out the juice. The difference is that surrounding the shredder disk is a grinding ring maybe 5/16″ wide which mates with a similar ring mounted on the top housing.

The motor runs at a substantially slower speed than most centrifugal juicers but much, much faster than an auger/gear machine. The produce is shredded and then ground between the two rings, which are positioned just a fraction of a millimeter apart. The result is very dry pulp. After juicing a bag of apples, a couple of pears, ginger, celery, and carrots, I found that I could pick up a handful of the pulp and squeeze really hard yielding only a few drops of unextracted juice.

“Cleanup takes about 3-5 minutes.”

“We recommend this one without hesitation.”

Choices thru Consequence

Decision

Choices thru Consequence

Good health is foundational for the sense of personal, societal, physical and mental well being. The ability to enjoy life means the necessity to evaluate every choice that is presented from the results of previous choices individuals have been taught or made for themselves thus learning. During the span of life, since birth society is conditioned to making choices. The consequences of the choices determine how to live life.

 

Seeing fire for the first time, the desired choices are to touch it, the consequence is getting burned, and from there on out we know that the next time fire is seen, the choice will not be to touch it and simply get burned.

Yet in certain aspects in life as transitioning to the various stages, from birth to death, learning to live life not based on the choice but rather determined by the consequence faced, therefore subjecting into a conditioning of living in fear of consequence. A perfect example of this is thru decisions made towards health and well being.

Over a lifetime, realizing that the consequence of not taking care of our health by subjecting our bodies to constant consumption of unhealthy food choices and deter from daily exercise has a detrimental consequence. Sickness, disease, obesity and the labels go on and on. Yet continuing to make poor choices based on a desire or given need and not the consequence.

Life Extension Special Membership Offer

A family will tend to raise their children with the choices of the lack of fulfilled desires that as children themselves were not privileged too, by either a poor economic state of the parents or by the discipline of not getting everything they as children desired. In today’s technological world, children are subjected to a huge amount of information, so vast that the need for parental education has simply almost become obsolete.

A simple one word question a child would be to ask, is “why?” In today’s environment the answer to that very infamous word is simply typed into a search bar and alas, the consequence is that everything on that word pops up. We can find pages and pages of results linking more and more pages to more results and so on until eternity. So vast that it would boggle any educated mind.

So my question is, as an adult, educated and ever knowing as we consider ourselves to be. “Why?” do we continue to make poor choices in our diets knowing that the consequences are all the labels I mentioned prior?

If we are amazed after a doctor’s visit when we are told we are diabetic, yet not realize that the daily overdose of sugar and other various toxins induced into our pancreas causing it to shut down completely or excite it to the point of overproducing insulin, could have been caused by the everyday abuse we have become so accustomed too. Like eating processed products with high contents of corn syrups, caffeine and sugars, drinking a two liter of soda every day, or simply looking forward to consuming that caramel macchiato every morning at the local coffee house.

You see, the consequence as a sick society, is the choices of learning that speeding would eventually lead to a costly ticket, how many of us still speed regardless? Yet we abuse our bodies daily while knowing the ramifications of disease. It astoundingly amazes me that as I sit and read a menu at a local restaurant, the choices that most people would order would be a two to three course meal or simply eat their favorite craving they have at the time that got them in there in the first place. While I on the other hand look at the same menu I have seen many times before with better choices and end up loosing my appetite just by imagining what is entering my body and the ramifications it may have as I age.

Life Extension Blood Testing

Our thinking habits;

Why do we deter from physical exercise or make the choices to stop the dieting, or simply give in to our cravings with consequence? To me the answer is simple. Because the consequence is how we make our choices. If we are ok with the inevitable consequence of poor health choices, the saying goes to justify “We only live once”, instead choosing to realize “We live every day, we only die once”. Thus changing the way we see things.

So here we are, we awake as the alarm clock sounds and get ready for our day to day knowing we have a set time to accomplish all we have to face. The mere idea of the choice of having to set the alarm clock one hour earlier to start our day with exercise makes the average Joe cringe. We know that if we do not exercise regularly the onset consequences of numerous health issues will eventually catch up with us in due time. So we tend to procrastinate regardless and make excuses why we can’t.

Eat Healthy

This thinking can easily be changed by considering that after exercise we will be more energetic, and more awake as our bodies received a greater amount of oxygen. We can exchange the sugary morning cereal with Ugh! Dairy milk that we followed by a cup of coffee with pancakes and syrup along with a side of sausage and or bacon. Instead choose to drink a glass of fresh juiced beets, leaves and all, mixed with orange juice. Pour a nice glass of Almond milk and eat instead a boiled or poached egg with sprouted grain toast, and realize the fact that this has the same sugary satisfaction and natural energy while also being just as fulfilling.

Changing the way we think can and is obviously a healthier alternative to help keep us stay alive much longer and in a better state of mind to handle the day. If we look at this in such a way that if we don’t do it this way we will get a disease we subject to the fear and we can then easily procrastinate and say “odds are it won’t happen”.

GINATAANG HIPON

ginataang hiponThe Philippines is a country in Southeast Asia with a tropical climate that grows a wide variety of vegetables and fruits, almost all of which find their way into the dishes of Filipino cuisine. Fruits and vegetables are prepared in a wide variety of ways depending on the dish and the region, but frying, boiling, steaming and pickling are favorite methods of preparation. There are also a few dishes that include the vegetables and fruits raw. Regardless of the cooking method used, Filipino cooks take great care to maximize the flavor and nutritional value of the food that is prepared.

Philippine cuisine consists of the food and preparation methods including eating customs found in the Philippines.

Mediterranean Shrimp

Mediterranean Shrimp  Though almost entirely enclosed, the Mediterranean Shrimp is quite deep. There is little tidal variation. The climate is warm and dry. The water, also warm is highly saline. While it is poor in nutrients, it has a rich biodiversity. Home to the ancient cities of Egypt, Crete, Mycenae, Greece and Rome, the Mediterranean is the birthplace of European civilization.  The Sea is Europe’s border with Africa. Only 30 km of water separates Gibraltar from Africa, though at some points.

Cutting out the Sugar

The average american consumes up to an estimated half pound of sugar each day! Cutting out the Sugar should be of added importance especially when the diabetic epidemic has gotten out of control. Consuming the equivalent of 60 teaspoons of sugar per day is outrageously impacting our health.

The food guide pyramid and the World Health Organization recommends that people should limit added sugars to no less than 10% of the total consumed calories. That would be six teaspoons of sugar for a 1600 calorie diet. and a maximum of Ten teaspoons for a 2000 calorie diet.

 

 

The U.S. Dietary guidline for Americans recommends limiting added sugars and instead focus on consuming a variety of nutrient dense foods and beverages from the basic food groups. Consuming sugars from Organic fruites and vegetables for example can be intaked from eating the following top five fruits and vegetables:

#1 – Apple

At the top of the list are nature’s toothbrush – the apple. A whopping 35 grams of carbs for one large apple – or 25g for a medium apple. Thanks to fiber you can shave 3g’s off those numbers, but they are still quite high. To compare, when your child eats a large apple, the sugar load is the same as if they were eating 8.75 teaspoons of sugar.

#2 – Pomegranate

One medium pomegranate has a load of 26 grams.The surprising part is there’s only 1g of fiber for all those seeds. I find that hard to believe! That’s 6.5 teaspoons of sugar.

#3 – Banana

I guess it’s no surprise bananas are in the top five. Sumo wrestlers don’t bulk up with bananas for nothing, right? One large banana has 25 grams of carbs and 3g’s fiber. That’s 6.25 teaspoons of sugar.

#4 – Pear

Now they are four popular varieties in pears in the US, but they are all high in carbs. Although high in potassium, each pear has a load of 22 grams of carbs. The good news is it has 4 grams of fiber which is not bad. That’s 5.5 teaspoons sugar.

#5 – Blueberries

One cup of blueberries has 20 grams of carbs. I always thought blueberries contained more fiber than they do 3 grams. Learn something new every day. Oh, and that’s 5 teaspoons sugar. So now that you know which fruit has the most sugar per serving, I bet you’d like to know which are the better choices. Choose the one you feel is to your taste.

 Life Extension - Health And Medical Findings

Vegetables:

#1 Carrots

Most vegetables have a low-sugar content. However, there are a few varieties that are at the higher end of the GI. Carrots have a score of 70, considered high. If you consider that there is only 1 g carbohydrate in a large carrot and 1 g of sugar, the percentage is high. Yet, it is a good source of fiber and other nutrients. In consideration, if you ate five large carrots, you would still only be ingesting 5 g of sugar.

#2 Beets

A vegetable also high on the GI scale is beets. They score in at 63. For each cup of canned beets, you will ingest 19 g carbohydrates, of which, 16 g are sugar.

#3 Potatoes

Potatoes are not only high in sugar, but they also have a high glycemic index and can make blood sugars harder to control for diabetics. In non-diabetics, eating too many white potatoes increases the risk of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome – a forerunner to heart disease and diabetes. A better alternative is the sweet potato which is more nutritious because of its higher carotenoid content. It also has a much lower glycemic index than the white potato. Make the switch and choose sweet potatoes instead.

#4 Corn

Corn is another vegetable with a high sugar content; but don’t pass on this sweet, crunchy vegetable entirely. It’s a good source of antioxidants and a source of a chemical called ferulic acid that may help to fight cancer. It’s also a good source of vitamin B1, folate, and vitamin C. Eat it in moderation and enjoy its many health benefits.

#5 Peas

They may be high in sugar, but they’re also an excellent source of vitamin K – a vitamin important for healthy bones. Plus, they’re a good source of vitamins C, B1, and folate. Peas have a higher protein content than most vegetables and are abundant in heart-healthy fiber. Despite their sugar content, what’s not to love about them?

 

According to a study by the USDA, people who eat a lot of sugar do not get as many nutrients as people who eat low sugar diets. This is because high sugar foods often replace nutrient rich foods. Below are 10 ways to help you cut down on your sugar intake.

1. Think before you drink:

Liquid calories add up fast. One 12 ounce can of soda contains about 10 teaspoons of sugar and one 20 ounce bottle contains about 16 teaspoons. Bottled ice teas and energy drinks often contain as much sugar as sodas.

2. Read Food Lables:

Reading food lables can help to identify added sugars. Some names for added sugars include sugar, brown sugar, raw sugar, corn sweetner, corn syrup, high-fructose corn syrup, sucrose, glucose and dextrose. Reading the lables is a good step towards cutting out the sugar.

3. Choose nutrient rich foods first:

Nutrient rich foods provide a high amount of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients for the calories they contain. These include brightly colored fresh fruits and vegetables. Lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, beans and nuts. Whole fiber-rich grain foods and fat free and low fat milk, cheese and yogurts.

4. Shop the perimiter of the store:

You will most always find nutrient rich foods around the perimiter of a store. Believe it or not, marketing stradegies for profit bares all when it comes down to cutting out the sugar and to the bottom line and marketers will always think of profits before anyones health. So be wise and if it is in front of you labled buy me now, chances are it’s not good for you.

5. Make snacks count:

Nutricious snacks can help you manage your weight, hunger and energy. Choose foods from the food groups such as fruits, vegetables, low fat yougurt, and cheese, whole grain crackers, cereaals and nuts. But like with everything, eat moderately.

6. Pay attention to portions:

Choose small servings or share high calorie, high sugar deserts when you splurge. Try a child’s serving of ice cream, a miniature chocolate or a small mocha.

7. Eat mindfully:

When you indulge in a sweet treat, pay attention and savor the flavor of each and every bite. The first few bites are the most satisfying and when you are satisfied, put it away and not just into your body, put it away and save it for later urges. Cutting out the Sugar is of importance.

8. Drink water:

Water is naturally calorie free and sugar free. Sparkling water or seltzer water is a refreshing option. These can be flavored with lemon or lime or even orange wedges and fruit juice.

9. Eat fruits:

Naturally sweet, fruit is a satisfyingand nutricios alternative. Fresh fruit is high in water and fiber, boith of which help increase fullness, helping you eat less.

10. Eat less candy, cookies, cakes, and pies:

High in sugar and fat, these foods contain lots of calories with very little nutrition. Cahnces are that after you eat these things, your cravings will be back before you know it for more of it. Once again marketing is in control when it comes to poor nutrition so don’t spend your hard earned dollars to simply eat it away and gain no nutritional values.

Testosterone Therapy

Smart Reality or Consequence?
If considering testosterone therapy to help you feel younger and more vigorous as you age, you must get familiar with the risks before you make your decision.  The possibilities of testosterone therapy are enticing, as the desire to increase your muscle mass, sharpen your memory and concentration, boost your libido, and improve your energy level is at every man’s mental forefront.

 

As you get older, testosterone therapy may sound like the ultimate anti-aging formula. Yet the health benefits of testosterone therapy for age-related decline in testosterone aren’t as clear as they may seem. Find out what’s known facts and not known about testosterone therapy for normal aging.

What is testosterone?
Testosterone is a hormone produced primarily in the testicles. Testosterone helps maintain men’s bone density, fat distribution, muscle strength and mass, red blood cell production, sex drive, and sperm production. Hypogonadism is a disease in which the body is unable to produce normal amounts of testosterone due to a problem with the testicles or with the pituitary gland that controls the testicles. Testosterone replacement therapy can improve the signs and symptoms of low testosterone in these men. Doctors may prescribe testosterone as injections, pellets, patches or gels.

What happens to testosterone levels with age?
Testosterone peaks during adolescence and early adulthood. As you get older, your testosterone level gradually declines and is typical to about 1 percent a year after age 30. It is important to determine in older men if a low testosterone level is simply due to the decline of normal aging or if it is due to a disease (hypogonadism).

Does a naturally declining testosterone level cause the signs and symptoms of aging?
Not necessarily. Men can experience many signs and symptoms as they age, and some may occur as a result of lower testosterone levels and can include changes in sexual function, this may include reduced sexual desire, fewer spontaneous erections such as during sleep and infertility. Changes in sleep patterns and sometimes low testosterone cause insomnia and/or other sleep disturbances. Physical changes such as various physical changes are possible, including increased body fat, reduced muscle bulk and strength, and decreased bone density. Swollen or tender breasts (gynecomastia) and hair loss are possible. You may experience hot flashes and have less energy than you used to.

Emotional changes are common with low testosterone and may contribute to a decrease in motivation or self-confidence. You may feel sad or depressed, or have trouble concentrating or remembering things.  It’s important to note that some of these signs and symptoms are a normal part of aging. Others can be caused by various underlying factors, including medication side effects, thyroid problems, depression and excessive alcohol use. A blood test is the only way to diagnose a low testosterone level.

Can testosterone therapy promote youth and vitality?
Testosterone therapy can help reverse the effects of hypogonadism, but it’s unclear whether testosterone therapy would have any benefit for older men who are otherwise healthy.  Although some men believe that taking testosterone medications may help them feel younger and more vigorous as they age, few rigorous studies have examined testosterone therapy in men who have healthy testosterone levels and some small studies have revealed mixed results. For example, in one study healthy men who took testosterone medications increased muscle mass but didn’t gain strength.

What are the risks of testosterone therapy for normal aging?
Testosterone therapy has various risks. For example, testosterone therapy can contribute to sleep apnea a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. It can cause your body to make too many red blood cells (polycythemia), which can increase the risk of heart disease. It can also cause acne or other skin reactions as well as stimulate noncancerous growth of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia) and possibly stimulate growth of existing prostate cancer and is also known to enlarge breasts and limit sperm production or cause testicle shrinkage.
