Hi, Thanks so much for returning to check out what we are talking about here on “Health And Wealth Builders Intl.”

This article is a follow up to the last one on how chronic inflammation is created, and the dangers of it. 

I actually was not planning on the topic of inflammation being a two part article, but it seems to have resonated with a lot of readers. One reader asked for an insight into what foods cause inflammation.

So here goes. PROTECT YOUR HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

To quickly recap the basics on inflammation in the body:

  • Inflammation can be very dangerous to your HEALTH and WELLNESS.

    Inflammation can be very dangerous to your HEALTH and WELLNESS.

    Inflammation is the body’s response to physical injury. The body’s immune system sends proteins and white blood cells to the site to start the healing process.

  • Interaction of cells with oxygen sometimes causes damage. The damaged cells are called free radicals which attack good cells. (This is known as oxidative stress)
  • In the case of damage caused by excessive free radicals, the injury becomes chronic and continuous so the inflammatory response is also chronic and continuous.
  • Inflammation build up in the body causes all kinds of illnesses. (some argue most illnesses)
  • All medical names for inflammatory conditions end in “..its”. As in bronchitis or arthritis.
  • Anti-oxidants combat this kind of oxidation of cells, and limit the need for these inflammatory responses.
  • If you are not sure if you are getting enough anti-oxidant support, go here.

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU LET IN YOUR BRAIN

Start where you are. Work towards your NEW NORMAL

Start where you are. Work towards your NEW NORMAL

We are being led to believe that many illnesses which we encounter later in life are normal. We learn from the outside influences to accept them and maintain them until they overcome us.This may be good for others but certainly not for our personal HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

I can guess who watches the programs on television, based on the ads that are run. Talk about target audience?
We network marketers can learn a thing or two from the media and Neilson, and how we are targeted.

If you watch world news, you hear about erectile dysfunction, bladder leakage, AARP supplemental insurance, and Alzheimer’s medication. You know who is watching at this time, and who isn’t. If you believe them you think it is normal and you should just make yourself comfortable in whatever state you find yourself. Plus it is deeply implied that you are not alone. Just join the crowd and work with it. It goes along with the …happy to be alive…. mindset. Read the rest of this entry

ACHIEVING A NEW NORMAL IN YOUR HEALTH AND WELLNESS

I thought this personal experience will illustrate what I mean by “A New Normal”

AN OLD MINDSET CREATED

You can create a new normal

When I was in high school, there came a time when I was lost in Mathematics. I think I lost my way somewhere in the fractions arena. After that everything else was a blur. I couldn’t understand much. I was frustrated. I felt inadequate, and often wondered what do some people have that I don’t have? I eventually gave up on myself and Mathematics, and concluded that Mathematics was not for me. So I concentrated on my other subjects, and gained enough GCE passes to become a teacher. So I entered teacher’s college and met a mathematics tutor who knew that:

  • Too many people lost their way in Mathematics.
  • Most people could learn mathematics, with the right teaching.
  • Mathematics was indeed fascinating, and she had the right mindset to show that to us.
  • Teachers had to understand and at least like Mathematics in order to teach it successfully.

GMO’s are a big part of our food supply

 Do you know what is in it?

Do you know what is in it?

 

GMO stands for:- Genetically Modified Organism.

This can be a plant or animal. It is when genetic engineers merge DNA’s from different species to alter the composition and features of a plant or animal. (That is the simple explanation. Much more complex)

It goes a bit further than traditional cross-breeding since the products are unstable and cannot occur naturally. I discovered some scary things in my research on GMO”s, and some interesting things about hybrid fruits.

Crossbreeding is more like grafting trees, and making hybrids of plants to achieve things like seedless watermelons, PLUOTS (cross between a plum and apricot), and a grapefruits (pummel, sweet orange).

Hybrids usually produce bigger and/or sweeter fruits.

Genetic modification goes a bit further by manipulating the genes and DNA to achieve much more complex results.

Hear how “THE DOCTORS” summarized it briefly.

ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS

Artificial sweeteners. Are they a good alternative?

Artificial sweeteners. Are they a good alternative?

 

This topic has been in the news recently, and I thought I should draw your attention to the different sides of this debate on ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS. It appears there has been a decline in the consumption of diet sodas and other beverages sweetened with artificial sweeteners.  And so a campaign was initiated  to convince buyers that it is safe.

Also in the new recently is the  results of an Italian study that has issued a caution when it comes to using sucralose.

 

Some of the artificial sweeteners on the market are:

  • Aacesulfame potassium has 0 calories and a slightly bitter taste. It cannot be broken down by the body, so it is supposed to be passed out in tact. (huh?)
  • Sucralose has 0 calories, is about 600 times sweeter than sugar, and has an artificial taste.
  • Saccharin has 0 calories, is about 300 times sweeter than sugar, and has the ability to cross the placenta.
  • Aspartame has 4 calories per gram, is around 80 to 200 times sweeter than sugar, and contains an ingredient that breaks down into methanol.
  • Neotame has 0 calories, is about 8000 times sweeter than sugar, and contains a compound that breaks down into methanol.

Other artificial sweeteners on the market are Sorbitol and Mannitol xylitol

These are marketed by familiar brand names with which you may be familiar.

Wheat, Gluten, and your HEALTH AND WELLNESS

A STAPLE IN OUR “FOOD”

wheat may not be all that you think it is.

wheat may not be all that you think it is.

 

 

We love bread. We eat so much of it at our favorite restaurants, that we have to take our meal home to eat later. For many of us, between pizza, pasta, bread, crackers, cereals, sandwiches, wraps cakes and pancakes, and almost anything that is processed our food patterns are pretty much covered.  There is also a high possibility that you may be “sleeping with the enemy” Is it possible that wheat and other grains are negatively and silently, affecting your HEALTH AND WELLNESS?
