YOUR “HEART HEALTH”

0

 

WOW!!!!

Have you ever had one of those light bulb moments when something suddenly occurs to you, that was hiding in plain sight?  I know you have. Everyone does.

Your HEART is depending on you!!

Your HEART is depending on you!!

How about this!!!. You can be the cure for what ails you.

Earlier this morning, I suddenly realized that my heart is just like the motor that runs the computer or a vehicle.

I did a quick run through on my laptop, which is my daily routine. This is how my routine goes.

I have learned how to ignore those whistles on my phone, until I am ready to wake up. You have no idea how that phone whistles, but I usually only hear it when I am not sound asleep.  Texts, Facebook  notifications, emails, everything elicits some kind of audible signal.

If you are wondering “Why don’t I just turn off the phone?”   The answer is; Because I believe that I should always be available if my kids need me.  So while I keep my phone handy, I learned to tune out those sounds when I want to sleep. (A ring would definitely get my attention.)

By the way!!!!!! What does your body need to do, to get your attention? Are you ignoring the cries for help?

ARE YOU MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICES FOR YOUR “HEART HEALTH”?  Listen to this video.

SOURCES OF DIETARY FIBER

SOURCES OF DIETARY FIBER

DIETARY FIBER plays many crucial roles in your diet. Fiber is essentially all the parts of the food that the body cannot digest. It serves other useful purposes.

It is no accident that the foods that are most beneficial you contain lots of fiber. Many vegetables and fruits are high in fiber. So are legumes and whole grains. This does not include refined grains like bleached white flour and white rice. Use grains in their most natural state.

Give your body the tools, and it will do the work.

Give your body the tools, and it will do the work.

I am about to embark on a series called “what’s in your food?” In it we shall enhance our knowledge of what is in our food that helps, and what harms the body as it struggles to maintain life.

Before we begin to examine what is in our food, perhaps we should take a look at why we need to examine our food. How it is produced, processed and prepared.

It is no secret that in the western world we are experiencing an unprecedented amount of sickness and disease. And Mostly of what has now been coined “lifestyle diseases”. These are various types of cancer, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, heart disease, pulmonary conditions, inflammatory conditions, auto immune diseases and mental disorders. Indications are that they can be prevented however.

THE RESULTS

These lifestyle diseases are categorized as chronic in that they are usually long term, progressive, and can be controlled but not cured. They are now a leading cause of disabilities and death, and have the potential to reduce the quality of your life, and decrease your years of productivity. They also have an uncanny way of eating up your savings and hinder your future independence. Read the rest of this entry

refined white sugar..what does it resemble?

The process of getting sugar from the sugar cane is varied depending on the finished product.

It is necessary to understand the process, as, a lack of knowledge can be detrimental to your efforts to live a “HEALTHY LIFESTYLE”

First the cane stalks are washed, and then crushed, to extract the juice.  The left over fibrous residue is called bagasse and in some sugar factories is burned to produce energy to run the manufacturing machines.

The juice is then boiled to reduce the moisture content.

The reduced liquid is then processed to remove some of impurities and color. A carbon compound (similar to chalk) is added to the juice to absorb some of the impurities and this also removes some of the sugar content, after it is removed. This can also be done with a phosphate solution. Read the rest of this entry

A FRUIT SNACK. USE SEPARATELY FROM OTHER FOODS

Fruit can be an answer to the SNACK DILEMMA, and contributes to a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

Getting past the SNACK DILEMMA on your way to a HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE.

So you are on a journey to adopt a HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE. You know that what you eat and when you eat is at the core of your success in tipping the balance that keeps the scale moving in a negative direction.

Planning meals is a challenge, but what can be a greater challenge, is planning what you will have for snacks. Or worse yet, Not planning for your snacks. This is a crucial but often overlooked part of your journey to WEIGHTLOSS AND A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE.


Snacking may be tricky. It is almost never planned for, and will creep up on you in the form of hunger pangs. So we tend to look for the most convenient or handy thing to eat. The grabs can range from snack machine items to refrigerated left overs and liquid calories.
Snacks must be part of the equation, in order to be successful in weight loss. Calories eaten at snack time, are just as crucial, as they do factor into the equation.
If you have not had an ample supply of FRUIT for the day, fruit may be a good option for a snack. One must be careful to have an adequate quantity of fruit, and pay attention to the nutritional content of fruits. Some fruits can be high in sugar and calories. Even though fruits are healthier and contain more fiber than many commercially prepared snacks, one must consider the calories in them, for optimal weight loss. Read the rest of this entry

A simple approach to HEALTH AND WELLNESS –3

0

It appears that more people are sick in these modern times, with more illnesses than we knew of in the past. Perhaps it is that modern science has evolved to where it is now able to identify ailments more readily.
It is also possible that more illnesses are developing from more environmental issues as well as nutritional mistakes, and compromised food.

In the previous articles I began to describe the common sense approach to protecting our bodies more. Let us continue to look at some more simple decisions that can alter the rate at which the body is compromised, and also affects our individual HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

We sign up for regular maintenance on our vehicles, but do we take care to maintain our body, Giving it what it needs to function, and be HEALTHY AND WELL?
The residue that collects in our joints is like rust in movable parts of a machine. The toxins collect and forms inflammation in our joints. We give it a name (arthritis) and accept it as normal. Is there something normal about cutting off a piece of your finger every day? Well consuming “food” that destroys the body slowly is just as abnormal. We can’t see the small changes. What we see is the cumulative effects. Most times it is too late. Read the rest of this entry
