Muscle tiredness, muscle ache

A few years ago I started to have pain in my calves. I had a tendency for varicose veins. I inherited that from my mother.

So in these past few years walking has been a painful activity. Then it got worse... and even climbing up from the first floor to the second was a big undertaking.

I started to get curious and ask questions.

I have added Magnesium to my supplements. I have added Rutin, a Bioflavonoid, inespensive and potent. Continue reading "Muscle tiredness, muscle ache"

Macular degeneration? Cataract? Age related loss of sight?

Healthy eyes1

I still wear the same strength of glasses I first received at age 9... and I am 71 years old.

What's the secret? Almost all women I know have had cataract2 removed, macular degeneration3 , and can't read without glasses. I read without glasses...

Why You Should Soak Your Nuts and Seeds

High in vitamins, minerals, protein and healthy fats, nuts and seeds are little powerhouses of nutrition. However, nuts and seeds also contain phytic acid and large amounts of enzyme inhibitors which protect them from sprouting until they have the rain and sun they need to grow. And unfortunately, these natural chemicals are quite hard on the stomach.

So, if you’ve ever had tummy trouble after eating nuts and seeds, don’t give up on them yet!
Why You Should Soak Your Nuts and Seeds

In nature, a seed or nut normally gets enough moisture from rain to wash off the acids and enzyme inhibitors so it can germinate and produce a plant. By soaking nuts and seeds before you eat them, you imitate nature by neutralizing these toxic growth inhibitors, releasing the natural enzymes and vitality within them.

The fallacy that anything that is Indian is good for you

masala teaI have a new client. 35 year old male from Central Africa.

I suggested that he posts his food diary and mood diary every day, so we can figure out how to get him well.

One of my friends is an Ayurvedic pulse reader, and as such he recommends spices to his clients.

We may eat a lot of food additives, but most consumers know very little about them. These often misunderstood substances go by unwieldy names like "diacetyl" or "azodicarbonamide." They are in everything from salad dressings to Twinkies. But how many of us actually know what they look like or, more important, what they're doing in our food?

You eat what you are… but you can change what you are!

lemon water for digestion and good healthUnbelievable, but true: you do crave more of what you are, and feel aversion towards what you are not.

I didn't know this until a friend said, out of the blue one day: your gut is organized to digest the food you are now giving it... it needs different bacteria to digest different food, like vegetables.

That is all I needed to hear: I started to re-train my gut to eat a healthier diet... In the beginning I gave it only grams of what it wasn't used to... so I can be well during the transition. Continue reading "You eat what you are… but you can change what you are!"
