Nine Ways to Boost Your Metabolism Naturally!

With the increasing age our metabolism doesn’t work that effectively plus there are other factors that contribute to weight gain, and sluggish metabolic rate which are your body composition, gender, hormones, and finally, your genes.
So, what you can do to raise your metabolism?
Interesting question. It’s very easy.
You need to do these.
1) Drink Green Tea:
Drinking green tea before meals works wonders for your metabolism. Green tea is rich in polyphenols like ECGC which activates calories burn. Plus, it is also mild thermogenic agent which used instead of other strong stimulant is highly beneficial. As green tea doesn’t raise heart beat, and blood pressure, and doesn’t cause nervousness that other metabolism booster supplements can do.
2) Eat Small but Frequent Meals:
This approach of eating helps you to have steady metabolism going plus a contant calories burn is possible.
3) Eat Protein:
Eat small amount of protein with all your meals. It is an excellent metabolism booster.
4) Have More Spices:
Having spicy foods rich in capsaicin like red chilies, or black chilies, or ginger give a warming effect to your body, and as a result you end up burning more calories.
5) Eat Complex Carbs:
Avoid refined, and high glycemic carbs they just make you fat. Instead focus on complex carbs like whole grains with low glycemic index. If you will do that their will be less fat storage in your body as there wont be much sugar spikes or crashes that promotes fat storage, and obesity.
6) Stay Hydrated:
Drinking atleast 8 oz of water is excellent. Reason being that water is an excellent appetite suppressant . I suggest you drink a tall glass of water before every meal. It makes you eat less.
7) Do Exercise:
Did you know that you don’t only loose while you are exercising but the metabolism keeps on running faster even after you have settled on your couch? The body thermostat keeps on running much more longer than the exercise period meaning you keep on burning more calories. So, because of this I suggest you to do a minimum of 30 minutes moderate paced exercise daily.
8) Intermittent Fasting:
Eating your last meal at 8 pm, and take your breakfast the following day after a fast of 12 hours. It will promote weight loss, and is great for your overall health.
9) Do Thyroid Test:
If you are following a healthy diet, and are busy doing exercise in your daily routine. With help of my above mentioned metabolism boosters. And still you can’t loose a single pound then I highly recommend you to get your thyroid function test done.

Acrylamide, and Cancer!

Acrylamide, and CancerDANGEROUS !

LATEST RESEARCH!!! (WATCH OUT)

Do you know a common mistake while preparing your favorite foods might lead you to cancer. Yes! You heard me RIGHT!

According to a latest study carried by Food Standards Agency-FSA; it was found out that cooking potatoes, breads, and other starchy varieties of food at high temperatures could cause them to produce a chemical that is CANCERIC, AND DANGEROUS! Yes, this carcinogen is called “Acrylamide,” and it is produced at a 248 Fahrenheit temperature or above. So, the FSA advises us to cook potatoes, chips, and toasts until they are light brown in color. As the darker or crunchier chips, potatoes, and toasts will definitely have greater amount of acrylamide present in them.

So, if this hasn’t raised your ears!!!!! Then read forward!

After the CONCLUSIVE RESEARCH (let’s discuss)

What exactly is acrylamide? And what are it’s SOURCES, and USES?

Acrylamide is an artificial chemical that is produced widely in the manufacture of fabrics, and adhesive glues, and as a water treatment agent. It’s also presents naturally in form of protein, and sugar in some foods, and is also a consequent of high temperature cooking. (as we have read above)

Moreover, shockingly, they are also present in your favorite dry fruits. As termed by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Tests proved acrylamide was more generously present in dried prunes, and pears. (So, watch out especially against them.)

Now that we know about the latest research, and uses, and sources of acrylamide. Let’s read about the how dietary acrylamide leads to the Alzheimer’s Disease?????

Well, scientists are well aware about the havoc it causes to human’s central nervous system, leading to muscle weakness, and in coordination between various muscles. Acrylamide can also cause nerve cell damage in the brain!!!!

According to a neurotoxicologist, Richard LoPachin; acrylamide is similar in structure to acrolein, a chemical which is in increased amount, present in the Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurodegenerative disease patients. (So, watch out!!!!)

Apart from neurodegenerative disease, impaired nervous system, and other cancers. Acrylamide is also associated with breast cancer in women!

GOOD NEWS is this, ‘YOU CAN MINIMIZE IT’S INTAKE!!!!’

WELL….Based on my research, and understanding. I will guide you to follow these steps to minimize your intake of acrylamide. So, here goes:

1. Special Pre-Cooking/Baking/Toasting Methods for CARBS!

If you are preparing potatoes presoak them for 30 minutes. It will reduce acrylamide for about 40%. Never store your potatoes in fridge. Keep them in cool dry place as it increases in acrylamide levels. About the bread? If you bake your own bread then use rosemary in your dough preparation, it stashes out acrylamide to upto 60%. Also if you are use commercial bread, just cut off it’s corners or crust, where acrylamide is deposited tremendously, and toast your toasts till light brown in color.
2. New Cooking Method for CARBS!

Roast your potatoes to golden yellow rather than crunchy brown. Better cooking method is boiling, or steaming. Because water keep the temperature from going above 248, and thus will have ZERO ACRYLAMIDE PRODUCTION IN YOUR FOOD! I recommend you to cook on low flame for longer length of time to be safe from carcinogen acrylamide!!!!
3. Top-Up Your Diet with Anti-Cancer Foods

Research doesn’t have any food known to break the health hazards of acrylamide in your body. However, topping up with anti-cancer foods can help tremendously. I recommend you to eat more cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cauliflower. These foods not only detoxifies the cancer producing chemicals, but also curtail the growth of existing cancer cells. So, top-up more frequently.
Stay healthy, and disease-free

What makes this program, click? Given below is an overview compiled after serious research-work.

Sciatica SOS™ Review:

This program is made by Glen Johnson, who cured himself using it. His sciatica was so bad that he couldn’t do basic tasks as he used to do, before he had sciatica flare-ups. He couldn’t pick heavy weights, play with his son, help his wife out to carry grocery shopping; things were so bad that he totally relied on his wife, and son for all the tasks.

After two years of suffering, and trying sciatica massage to sciatica exercises like sciatica running to even thinking of arranging money to meet sciatica surgery cost. He found himself short of a cure, and he thought of thinking of some better cure to help him deal with sciatica flare-ups.

Luckily, a family friend Xie, introduced to him an Ancient Nepalese treatment, which cured his sciatica pain within five days. Glen had complete elimination of sciatica pain.

Furthermore, in Sciatica SOS™, Glen discusses the exact treatment protocol, and it’s method of following that is guaranteed to give you positive results, step by step.

So, the question arises:

What Does Sciatica SOS™ contains?

The course discusses the causes of sciatica, and as well as the reasons behind your pain.

As everyone is bio-individual. The courses content helps you to find your subjective cause of developing sciatica. As, same generic treatment can’t be helpful in relieving particular sciatica cause of everyone. So, details are needed.

As you move on with the course, Glen, explains the various treatments types, and tells you exactly which one is suitable for you considering your underlying cause of developing sciatica as evaluated in the beginning of this course.

Sciatica SOS™ Course includes:

  • Twenty sixth page of the course is about the home remedies; of which 7 are most potent in eliminating sciatica effectively.

  • Sixty second page is about sleep therapy, it is an overlook, why sleep is important in sciatica pain treatment.
  • Sixty fourth page is about dietary advice. How can, certain alteration in diet can help you relief pain?

Mostly these four treatment methods are enough to resolve sciatica problem but for serious cases there are also advanced section of “Trigger Point Therapy” and how to “Reorganize Your Skeletal System.”

Is This Program Effective?

Being skeptical, and thinking about its effectiveness is but natural. Due its phenomenal success rate it does seem too good to be true!

It is effective because it helps to release tension that builds up in muscles, tendons, nerves, and joints after Sciatica flare-ups. This program also helps to heal, and re-balance the effective area.

In a nutshell Sciatica SOS™ is incredibly effective. Get yourself cured within 7 days! The program is easy and simple. And is one hundred percent natural, and safe! Without medication, or drugs!

Let’s check a review from Gerry from London:

Gerry said he was battling with sciatica for over 10 years after minor car accident, and he tried injections, pills, and special mattresses all failed except Sciatica SOS™. He is absolutely pain-free now.

Let’s check a comment of a buyer Jane Eddington, from Minnesota:

She thanked Glen, and added that after her three months of poor sleep on account of sciatica pain, she was frantically searching online for a pain killer as NSAIDs were useless. She added that after going through Glen site he thought of giving it a try as there was money back guarantees, so she had nothing to lose. She added that just after one day of use her pain disappeared and she was able to enjoy good night’s sleep. She even called Glen a life saver!

According to another feedback from Michael Pierce from Ireland:

He thanked Glen, and added that his pain was relieved just after five days of use. He was able to be mobile, and pain-free. He even one step ahead, and added that everyone with sciatica pain must have Sciatica SOS™.

Is Sciatica SOS™ worth a Buy?

Conclusion:

Sciatica pain is considered very leisurely by the medical experts that makes it more frustrating for the patients as they can hardly move, sleep, or carry loads.

Glen, being an ex-sufferer himself, understands their turmoil, and has designed Sciatica SOS™ to provide instant cure without hazardous medical treatments, and therapies which are expensive, and time-taking.

As, this program doesn’t provide bandage but eliminates the problem from the root-level for good.

 

My opinion?

 

Go for this program as you have nothing to lose. It’s cheap, natural, and effective, and you will be compensated if it doesn’t works for you if you return it within 60 days of purchase.

 

Stay healthy,

How make periods come faster?

 

PeriodsLet us first understand the irregular periods in detail.

 

Usually, the normal time-period for menstrual cycle is between every 24-29 days, and sometimes, it can take longer from 23 to 35 days. That is a common problem, and doesn’t need any attention.

 

Plus, sometimes, women might have periods that happen twice or thrice a month that involves extremely heavy flow to mere spotting. Also, in some cases, the periods occurs around 1 to 4 times a year. So, gauging from these scenario you can imagine that the irregularity of periods are just a matter of your perception.

 

Health experts doesn’t take this matter any seriously if the woman misses periods, a couple of time over the course of the year. Other than that if the variations are more serious than the reason might be perimenopause which is the disruption of the natural hormonal system.

 

Or some other underlying causes include:

 

  • Weight fluctuations
  • Poor nutrition
  • Drugs
  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Stress
  • Eating disorder
  • Medication
  • PCOS
  • Perimenopause
  • Chemotherapy
  • Breast feeding
  • Uterine abnormalities
  • Miscarriage
  • D&C
  • Recent childbirth

 

As you can see from the varying causes it becomes very difficult for the sufferer to find the right reason behind her menstrual irregularities.

 

So, it is the health expert job to find the right cause that is behind the period’s irregularity.

 

He/she may order the following tests:

 

  • CBC- A Complete Blood Count Test
  • Thyroid Test
  • Uterus Ultrasound
  • Hormone Balance Test
  • Or might advise you to see a fertility expert.

 

 

 

On a general note, following natural techniques can be helpful!

 

  • Try to de-stress.

 

  • Stress can cause hormonal imbalance which can lead to period’s irregularity. You need to destress. Try reading, meditation, yoga, deep breathing, and other spiritual activities that might be helpful in this regards for yourself.

 

  • Try to do regular exercise.

 

Moderate exercise is very beneficial in regulation of menstruations. Doing regular exercise helps to keep your weight, stress, and emotions in control too. But be sure to not to over-exercise as it might sometimes cause menstrual irregularity.

 

  • Try to sleep well.

 

Sleeping for about 8 hours or more helps to normalize your hormones, keeps you chirpy, and also active. It also helps in promoting regular menstrual cycle. As it calms you down that is needed to bring periods faster.

 

  • Take these foods.

 

Try to eat more carotene rich foods. Foods like mustards, papaya, egg, pumpkins, apricots, spinach, and peaches increases the menstrual flow, and helps you in getting periods faster! Also, eat more red meat as it has heating properties, and will aid in better blood flow. Celery stalk is also considered to be a good stimulant for periods.  Research says that taking more fruits, and vegetables will be beneficial in this regards. As avoiding refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and salt is a must to make periods come faster.

 

  • Consider these supplementations.

 

  1. Vitamin C

 

Vitamin C helps to make the estrogen that makes the uterus to cause heavier bleeding. Consider, 3000 mg of vitamin C thrice weekly. If you are pregnant then avoid its intake as it can promote miscarriage.

 

 

  1. Black cohosh

 

Black cohosh is highly recommended to promote natural blood flow, and is also helpful to treat menstrual cramps. But if you are taking any medications then first consult with your physician.

 

3, B vitamins, Omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium, and zinc

 

Consider all the above mentioned vitamins, minerals, and omega 3 fatty acids in form of fish oil to facilitate faster periods.

 

 

  • Consider some natural remedies.

 

  1. Drink more ginger tea.

 

Drink ginger tea twice daily to help the periods flow get faster.

 

  1. Apply warm castor oil.

 

Dip an old T shirt in warm castor oil, and put it at the lower part of your abdomen, and put a warm water bottle on top, and finally cover those with a towel. Keep this compress for an hour. Carry this remedy for a month or so depending on your condition but not during your period’s days. This remedy will avail heavy blood flow that is due to the clearing up of the stagnation present in your uterus to clear.

 

  1. Drink aloe vera juice. This juice is readily available in a bottled form which is very helpful to promote healthy periods.

 

These were some natural methods to improve your condition. But on a serious note, it is very important to find the root-cause of your problem. For that I would advise you to take help from any functional medicine expert. All the best.

Stay Healthy,

Hair-Care: Explained

Healthy HairBeautiful, healthy looking hair are the best ornament a woman can have. Long, nourished hair are pleasing to look at, and increase the sex appeal of any woman. So, with all these benefits, there are certain areas that require your attention, when it comes to hair-care.
Some basic questions that cross our mind when it comes to hair-care are as following:
How many times should one wash their hair?
It’s better to wash your hair once a week. But certain bio-individuality is applied in this regard. Women with long hair might like to wash their hair every 14 days or daily. That’s very personal. It’s better to alternate between a clarifying shampoo, sulphate-free shampoo and co-washing.
Before discussing the questions regarding the procedure, according which hair should be washed. It is important to deal with hair-health issues.
How can one care about their hair?
It’s better to use natural hair, and styling products that are rich in vitamins, and minerals like olive oil, aloe vera, shea butter, jojoba, and coconut oil to name a few. Hair massaging with olive or mustard or coconut oils makes the scalp, and hair healthy. It’s important to take breaks between before switching styles, and also avoid extra heating of your hair as it might make your hair dry, and can lead to hair breakage, and damage. Also, if you are going to install the weave, and you already have wavy hair skip out the hair-ironing part to straighten them out! Plus, you need to take omega 3 fatty acids, evening primrose capsules, and biotin, and zinc supplements for better nutritional support.
Now, coming back to the washing of hair part.
You may wonder, what’s the new buzz about co-washing?
Well, co-washing is to wash your hair with conditioner instead of shampoo. As chemical based shampoos can easily strip out natural oils, and moisture from your hair.
You might wonder is the co-washing right for me?
Well, co-washing can be used with women with all the hair texture, and type. But, two things need to be considered:
1. Your physical activity
2. Your personal hair care products, types

Women who swim or do gyming need clarifying shampoo to wash away extra chlorine or dirt.
How often should I use clarifying shampoo?
Use it once monthly. The shampoo should be without sulphate.
Why should I use conditioner?
Conditioner is vital for hair-care as it provides moisture, nourishment to your hair, and also softens, and strengthen them more. Best conditioners are the ones containing water, glycerin, macadamia ternifolia seed oil, stearic acid, and coconut oil.

What should I do after hair-wash?
After washing your hair with shampoo. Apply conditioner to your hair. But first detangle your hair with your hands, and make four partitions. Apply a generous amount from tips to top parts of hair as tips of the hair receive more knocking from the styling, and chemicals based hair-products, use. Now wear a hair cap or plastic bag on your hair, and wait for an hour for better results in case you don’t have a hood dryer that we usually, don’t at our homes. Then wash your hair with cold water as it will retain more moisture in your hair.
These are few tips that will ensure healthy hair for sure!

Stay healthy,

Best Cookware for You!

Ceramic CookwareChoosing the right cookware has always been a hassle. People use Teflon, and non-stick varieties more, without knowing the health dangers that it poses. As aluminum, and non-stick cookware can leach toxins, and endocrine disrupters into the food. So, switching back to old fashioned pots are the best bet!

I have done a substantial research on the safest options regarding the different types of cook wares. I’m going to list them down, so you can also avail the benefits from my tedious research for maintaining good health.

Below are my favorite ones:

  • Ceramic Cookware

 

Ceramic cookware are the ultimate best. I researched that they don’t leach anything into the food which I prepare for my loved ones.  They can easily be washed by steel wool, they don’t scratch, the heat is taken evenly; plus the flavors remain intact.  Also they are microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe. The food cooked in these cookware are tastier than stainless or cast iron cookware. Just one, drawback of ceramics cookware is that they can easily break.

 

  • Cast Iron Cookware

 

Cast iron cookware is difficult to clean as one can’t use abrasive soaps. Other than that the best benefit, I feel cooking in cast iron pan is that they are highly beneficial for people who are anemic as the extra iron that is transferred to the food from these, makes it more healthier, and helps in blood cell multiplication. So, if you are anemic or not. Cast iron cookware is the best bet for you. The food is tasty, and can be evenly cooked in these cookware. It can be used in stove-top, and oven. I prefer frying, meat cooking, and even oven-cooking in it. Just a personal reminder, don’t cook tomatoes based recipe in this type of cookware. They don’t up well.

 

  • Regular Stoneware

 

I like stoneware more for baking as it is safer than the aluminum based roasting pans or baking sheets. Stoneware is available in form of bread pans, muffin tins, and many other types. I like the flavor of the food that this cookware gives. But I feel it’s very hectic to clean stoneware as if we use soap stoneware will absorb that flavor that can be transferred to our food. So, it’s tricky to clean it but if we learn to clean it properly then such cookware can last for lifetime. I like to reheat my food in it, also I like using it for grilling veggies, and baking cookies in these. Plus, I also get added benefit of a workout lifting these up, and forth.

Finally, if you ask me which one is my favorite? I will go for ceramic ones as they can be cleaned easily, and are highly durable. Plus, the food cooked in these are yummy!

Stay Healthy!

Why Statins are so BAD!!!!

StatinsAlthough Big Pharma, and many doctors prescribe you with statin drugs. Sadly, the repeated research has shown that statins are just sham, and nothing helpful!!!

You will be alarmed by the latest research published in the American Heart Association, and the American College of Cardiology that confrims that one doesn’t require to be having high cholesterol or even heart disease to start off with statins. Stroke, diabetes, and other factors that lead to heart attack can be enough for moderate to high dependency on statins for life.

So Question Arises:

Are Statins Effective???

Despite the favorable statistics about the efficacy of statins to prevent the heart attack. There is an effective metrics to measure whether the patient requires surgery, medications, or any medical procedure; for him/her  to benefit from, and for better cure is known as “number needed to treat” (NNT).

Let’s me tell you how NNT works for example: NNT for IV magnesium for asthma patients is one out of three. Meaning one patient will show improvement if IV magnesium is given to him/her during asthmatic attack in the emergency room of hospital to the point that he/she won’t need a hospitalization.

The best NNT is one that guarantees that the therapy will suit every patient. However, if the NNT is higher i.e around 40 or above, means that the treatment will be less suitable or beneficial for the patient.

Moving back to statins: The NNT of statins in preventing heart attack, and stroke is 83 that is highly unimpressive. Diet, exercise, and other lifestyle changes are safer than drug since they have very low NNT.

Mostly, people who are taking statins are healthy. They have never had a stroke, heart disease or heart attack. So, the likelihood to be helped by statins is very non-existent.

 

Important Results

According to BMJ-British medical journal, 2013 study; it was found that people with chances of  developing heart disease with a percentage of 20 percent or more; NNT was 140 over 10 years. Which very high, so poor result!!!!

Thus, based on researches, it is to conclude that statins can’t prevent heart attack or save a life of someone who is about to die. So, it’s just BIG PHARMA MAKING MONEY!!!!

So, what are the DANGERS OF CONSUMING STATINS????

Statins causes sexual dysfunction, cancer, liver damage, cataract, memory loss, confusion, mood disorders, muscles breakdown, and blocks absorption of coenzymes Q 10 (needed for energy production).

 

Statins Might Cause Diabetes

According to the American Medical Association’s journal (JAMA), out of 32,752 patients who were taking daily statins low to high dosage, who were studied, 2,749 developed diabetes-type 2.

So, the number is way higher. Watch out!

Statins Might Lead to Memory Loss

Statins is a bad news for brain. As your brain need cholesterol to function well, and for good memory. Plus, statin appears to adversely affect Co-enzyme Q10, and tau which are needed for healthy brain cells, and structure. Taking statins? Alzheimer’s coming WATCH OUT!!!!!

Statins Might Lead to Heart Failure

According to the American Journal of Cardiology, study, patients with no heart disease but high cholesterol were given Lipitor, 20mg thrice daily for six months.

It resulted in development of diastolic dysfunction in 71% of patient i.e congestive heart failure. Now this subgroup was given CoQ10, 300 mg, daily, along with Lipitor for three months. Results showed 89% of reversal of one marker of diastolic dysfunction, and 44% had all the three markers reversed.

Who Gains From Statin???

The BIG PHARMA is the clear winner! And trusting patients are at loss as they are not unaware that they are digging their own graves by taking statins.

Holistic Approach to Statins are as Following:

I recommend you to consider taking:

  • Fish oil
  • Niacin
  • Flaxseeds
  • Curcumin
  • Berberine
  • Bergamot
  • Cholactiv (botanical blend for lowering cholesterol)

And if you still want to take Statins THEN I ADVICE YOU TO TAKE 200 mg OF CO-ENZYME Q10.

 

Now tell me: Did your doctor tell you about these health risks of statins???

 

Stay Healthy!
