Simple, Easy To Follow Health Tips

Most of these simple steps will greatly reduce your chances of getting
cancer & heart disease. You'll also feel better and more alive!

Completely avoid aspartame (Nutrasweet, Equal)!! Click the link
http://www.321recipes.com/aspartame.html
for detailed info. on the numerous & serious health risks
of this artificial sweetener.

Use butter instead of margarine. Butter isn't great for you,
but it's much better than margarine which is an awful
hydrogenated oil, it's like eating plastic and is impossible to digest.
These hydrogenated oils(or trans-fatty acids) are chemically altered
to increase shelf life & improve consistency and are found
in many commercial products. However, they also greatly increase
your chances for heart disease. cancer, and type 2 diabetes.

Use Extra Virgin Olive Oil as much as possible and avoid commercial
canola oil. Popcorn covered in Olive oil is a healthy snack!

Avoid all Talc products including talcum powder(baby powder.)
Talc is very similar to asbestos, and has been linked
in some studies to ovarian cancer. Talc free baby powder
made from cornstarch is available so there's no need to risk it.

Eat fatty fish(salmon, herring, sardines) several times a week
or buy some flaxseed oil capsules and take them daily.
Fish and flaxseed oil are the best 2 sources
of ESSENTIAL omega 3 fatty acids.
Without Omega 3's, your body malfunctions
causing all sorts of problems including high cholesterol & cancer.
You can also buy flaxseeds and sprinkle them on your salad.
Avoid swordfish and shark though, especially if you are pregnant!
Unfortunately they are highly contaminated with mercury and other toxins.

Use fresh garlic in recipes as much as possible.
It has more health benefits than we can fit on this page.

Use ginger for nausea, stomach aches, motion sickness etc.
Ginger is also an excellent anti-inflammatory.

Rejuvinate & protect your liver with Milk Thistle.
Your liver performs over 400 different bodily functions daily.

Look into the herb Astragalus. It's a safe herb that has demonstrated
remarkable immune system boosting effects for thousands of years,
especially among cancer patients. If you or someone you know has cancer or
is chronically ill, check out the following links:

Ivillagehealth.com: Astragalus.

Drweil.com: Astragalus.

Newhope.com: Astragalus.

Eat red potatoes instead of the big Russett potatoes. They're converted to
sugar more slowly.

Eat brown rice instead of white rice. Brown rice is a whole grain, white
rice has all the fiber and minerals removed and is the nutritional
equivalent of eating a bowl of sugar(those poor Survivor contestants). I
never liked brown rice at Chinese restaurants, it was always a little
rough. However, anytime I've made homemade brown rice it's nice and soft.
Plus Lundberg Farms make delicious brown rice cakes that are 10 times
better than the popular supermarket brands like Quaker Oats. You may be
able to find them at your local health food store or you can order them
online.

Try and limit your intake of hydrogenated oils. Health food stores carry
products such as corn chips, potato chips, popcorn, peanut butter, etc.
that taste just as good as the popular brand name products but are free of
hydrogenated oils which are only used to increase shelf life & improve
consistency.

If you're sick and doctors don't know why, candida(yeast overgrowth) or
parasites may very well be the cause. Antibiotics destroy your friendy
bacteria in the gut which help inhibit the overgrowth of these organisms.
Combined with a high sugar/refined carb diet, an overgrowth of yeast or
parasites can occur, exacerbating or mimicing almost any disease or
condition. Health-Truth.com is a good source for more info.

Try some nutbutters like almond or cashew nutbutter. Nuts are packed with
vitamins, minerals & good fats and the nutbutters taste like candy. Your
kids will love em too, let em spoon it right out of the jar if they want,
it's one of the healthiest foods they can eat. If you have a food
processor you can buy nuts in bulk and make your own nutbutter if you
want(it's cheaper that way). You also might want to try some Tahini paste,
which is ground up sesame seeds and the highest natural source of calcium.
It has an odd, unique taste but you may grow to love it and enjoy it with
salads, beans, as a healthy dip, or in other recipes.

Try not to sleep next to anything that generates electromagnetic fields,
including an electric blanket or an alarm clock. They may disrupt your
body's natural control systems and sleeping patterns, weakening your
immune system and keeping you from getting deep, restfull sleep. It may be
a little inconvenient but I'd move that alarm clock away from your head.
Besides, I've found that I sleep much better having no idea what time it
is when I wake up during the night. If you have to get up at 6 AM and you
wake up at 5 AM you may feel "pressure" to fall back asleep as quickly as
possible cause you only have an hour of sleep left.

If you have irritable bowel syndrome, numerous food intolerances etc. look
into taking some L-Glutamine for a few months, it's highly recommended for
healing your intestinal lining.

Consider taking a plant derived enzyme supplement with meals. Enzymes are
responsible for nearly all biochemical reactions in humans including
digestion. Without enzymes, you can't digest food, vitamins etc. Enzymes
found in food are completely destroyed by cooking, requiring our bodies to
produce all the enzymes for digestion. This can result in an enzyme
deficiency, especially in the sick and elderly. Unfortunately, we eat way
too much cooked foods and not enough raw foods. An enzyme supplement taken
with every meal can be extremely beneficial. You will feel better if you
are completely digesting your food.

Exercise & drink plenty of water(you knew those were coming). So many
people are chronically dehydrated, which can exacerbate many conditions.
Get yourself a nice portable CD player and try to go on 30-45 minute
walks. Take the stairs instead of escalators. There are so many benefits
to exercise besides weight loss.

Did you know that too much exercise is bad for you? Several studies have
proven that strenuous exercise for over 90 consecutive minutes decreases
immune system fuctionality and lowers white blood cell activity.

If you suffer from jpint pain or arthritis you should try eliminating all
nightshade family vegetables to see if your symptoms improve. Many people
find their symptoms completely disappear when they remove these
vegetables. Common nightshade vegetables are the following: Tomatoes,
Potatoes, Eggplant, Peppers, Chili, Red and Green Peppers, Paprika &
Tobacco. Eating nightshade foods is believed to result in a buildup of
cholinesterase inhibiting glycoalkaloids and steroids and may cause
inflammation, muscle spasms, pain, and stiffness in sensitive people.
Other research suggests that these nightshade foods all contain a
substance called solanine, a bitter poisonous alkaloid that inhibits nerve
impulses.

For Chrohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis or celiac disease, check out the
specific carbohydrate diet.

Don't blindly trust ONE expert on any health subject. The human body is
extremely complex and there are plenty of "experts" who have very
different opinions of health, diet, nutrition etc. Your best bet is to
read as much as possible on a certain health subject and make your own
decision. Drweil.com is a great place to research any health related
subject. Check out Dr. Weil's books on diet and nutrition.
All the steps above are pretty darn easy to follow. More difficult steps
include limiting your intake of sugar and refined, simple carbs made from
white flour(bagels, white bread, cookies, pasta, pretzels etc.). Eat whole
grains(brown rice, whole wheat, oats, corn, etc.) products instead(check
out our Whole Grain Flatbreads recipes!) Basically just eat real food. If
you eat real food than you're almost always eating healthy. Fruits,
veggies, nuts & seeds, whole grains, and beans are all real food so you
can't go wrong.
Try and limit your intake of soda. Besides the sugar or aspartame which
are both bad for you, soda is extremely high in phosphorous which causes
bone loss. Try and get in the habit on drinking a huge glass of water 15
minutes before eating. Do this before every meal and you won't need to
drink soda or juice with your meals.
Also try and limit your dairy intake, you can try Darifree, a dairy
substitute which Dr. Weil says is the best dairy substitute he's
tried(I've never had it), much better than soymilk. I'm not sure where I
exactly stand on dairy, but cow's milk was really meant for baby cows and
causes quite a few problems when humans consume it. Humans are the only
animals on the planet that consume dairy beyond infancy (and most people
outside of North America & Western Europe don't consume dairy). If you
have sinus problems or your kid is getting ear infections every week
there's an excellent chance that dairy is the cause. Cows milk is also now
loaded with BGH which, according to certain doctors, causes greatly
increased risks prostate, colon & breast cancer. Milk is also high in
phosphorous and protein, which contributes to bone loss, the opposite of
what milk is supposed to do.

Thanks brother. You know where I stand in these matters, we are what we eat and we do not need chemicals in our food circle, it's like dumping garbage in a temple. I personally have the habit of reading every single ingredients label when I do my shoppings and have banned artificial flavours, colors, preserve stuff and everything else that has been added by the food producents to replace natural ingredients. I found out that if you do some effort you find everything you want to eat without chemical additives.

Another thing we have to be aware of is that prawns and chickens and lots of other breeded animals are stuffed with antibiotics to prevent them from dying in the breeding process. Of course no one will tell you that the amount of antibiotics in breeded (small) animals is over the top but don't eat it too much, it's not healthy. It's crazy, but most pre-packed supermarket-food is polluted one way or the other.

I am in full agreement with you, Bro...especially on the additives issue.

Yes. Actually fish oils and flaxseed oils are #2 and #3..behind hemp seed and hemp seed oil, in my opinion.

Right on Ben!

Here's a square deal on the oil of which you speak ... (3) - 12 oz. bottles for $20.78 plus shipping, it came to about $28.00 total. I just ordered a few myself yesterday.
