How to keep the brain healthy

1 (5)

Have you ever noticed when you are depressed the brain just cannot deal with certain things?  You get agitated quickly  and it is like someone else with a different personality wants to control you, and the slightest situation you are ready for a fight.

You see everyday our cells are dying just look at your skin now compared to years ago,   we continue to age and we start forgetting things.  In the normal scheme of things the body should rebuild its cells however if we are continually stressed about things in our lives our cells are not rebuilt as it should.

It is a challenge not to get depressed about things in our lives – lack of money, the loss of a loved one, loneliness and the list goes on. Whilst there are ways to cope with depression e.g meditation, talking to someone about your problems, building your skills to deal with your problems having a healthy brain is also important.

Researchers have since discovered that:

Niagen a B3 Vitamin may help us keep our brain healthy.

‘What is NIAGEN®?
NIAGEN®, also known as nicotinamide riboside (NR), is a very unique member of the vitamin B3 family. The body converts NR into Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) which is an essential molecule found in every living cell.

Why is NAD+ so important?
NAD+ enables cells to covert the food that we eat into the energy that we need. NAD+ is also the communication molecule between the cell nucleus and the mitochondria which are the energy producing factories in the cell. If NAD+ levels are low, then communication may be impaired and mitochondria dysfunction may result. When this occurs, everything begins to breakdown.’

What this means is that if you boost NAD levels you promote new cell growth which helps the brain to function better and this may help the body to  to deal with the demands of stressful situations better.

Niagen can be found in the Edge. This is the main ingredient. hi5-edge

People who have taken this say the best time to take it is after a meal, place it under the tongue , let it dissolve and drink a glass of water.

There are also other benefits from taking Niagen – because it rebuilds your cells it can be helpful in rebuilding your liver and kidney, helps with bold pressure, diabetes and maintains a healthy cholesterol level.

Why eat fruits on an empty stomach & more

Please share this post as much as possible with the people you care about.

Eating Fruit on Empty Stomach

This will open your eyes ! Read to the end and then send it on to all on your e-list. I just did !

Dr Stephen Mak treats terminal ill cancer patients by an “un-orthodox” way and many patients recovered.

Before he used solar energy to clear the illnesses of his patients, he believes on natural healing in the body against illnesses. See his article below.

It is one of the strategies to heal cancer.
As of late, my success rate in curing cancer is about 80%.

Cancer patients shouldn’t die. The cure for cancer is already found – its in the way we eat fruits.

It is whether you believe it or not.

I am sorry for the hundreds of cancer patients who die under the conventional treatments.

EATING FRUIT
We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths.

It’s not as easy as you think. It’s important to know how and *when* to eat the fruits.

What is the correct way of eating fruits?

IT MEANS NOT EATING FRUITS AFTER YOUR MEALS!

FRUITS SHOULD BE EATEN ON AN EMPTY STOMACH

If you eat fruits on empty stomach, it will play a major role to detoxify your system, supplying you with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

FRUIT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FOOD.

Let’s say you eat two slices of bread and then a slice of fruit.

The slice of fruit is ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but it is prevented from doing so due to the bread taken before the fruit.

In the meantime the whole meal of bread & fruit rots and ferments and turns to acid.

The minute the fruit comes into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil.

So please eat your fruits on an *empty stomach* or before your meals !

You have heard people complaining :

Every time I eat watermelon I burp, when I eat durian my stomach bloats up, when I eat a banana I feel like running to the toilet, etc.. etc..

Actually all this will not arise if you eat the fruit on an empty stomach.

The fruit mixes with the putrefying of other food and produces gas and hence you will bloat !

Greying hair, balding, nervous outburst and dark circles under the eyes all these will *NOT* happen if you take fruits on an empty stomach.

There is no such thing as some fruits, like orange and lemon are acidic, because all fruits become alkaline in our body, according to Dr. Herbert Shelton who did research on this matter.

If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the * SECRET * of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

When you need to drink fruit juice – drink only * fresh* fruit juice, NOT from the cans, packs or bottles.

Don’t even drink juice that has been heated up.

Don’t eat cooked fruits because you don’t get the nutrients at all.

You only get its taste.
Cooking destroys all the vitamins.

But eating a whole fruit is better than drinking the juice.

If you should drink the fresh fruit juice, drink it mouthful by mouthful slowly, because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

You can go on a 3-day fruit fast to cleanse or detoxify your body.

Just eat fruits and drink fresh fruit juice throughout
the 3 days.

And you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look !

KIWI:
Tiny but mighty.
This is a good source of potassium, magnesium, vitamin E & fiber.
Its vitamin C content is twice that of an orange.

APPLE:
An apple a day keeps the doctor away?
Although an apple has a low vitamin C content, it has antioxidants & flavonoids which enhances the activity of vitamin C thereby helping to lower the risks of colon cancer, heart attack & stroke.

STRAWBERRY:
Protective Fruit.
Strawberries have the highest total antioxidant power among major fruits & protect the body from cancer-causing, blood vessel-clogging and free radicals.

ORANGE :
Sweetest medicine.
Taking 2-4 oranges a day may help keep colds away, lower cholesterol, prevent & dissolve kidney stones as well as lessens the risk of colon cancer.

WATERMELON:
Coolest thirst quencher. Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione, which helps boost our immune system.

They are also a key source of lycopene the cancer fighting oxidant.
Other nutrients found in watermelon are vitamin C & Potassium.

GUAVA & PAPAYA:
Top awards for vitamin C. They are the clear winners for their high vitamin C content.

Guava is also rich in fiber, which helps prevent constipation.

Papaya is rich in carotene; this is good for your eyes.

Drinking COLD water or drinks after a meal = CANCER

Can you believe this ?

For those who like to drink cold water or cold drinks, this article is applicable to you.

It is nice to have a cup of cold water or cold drinks after a meal.

However, the cold water or drinks will solidify the oily stuff that you have just eaten.

It will slow down the digestion.

Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food.

It will line the intestine.

Very soon, this will turn into FATS and lead to CANCER !

It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks.

HEART ATTACK PROCEDURE : ( THIS IS NOT A JOKE! )

Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.

Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.

You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.

Sixty percent of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.

Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep.

Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive.

A cardiologist says:
if everyone who gets this mail sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life.

So lets all do at least 1 good work today.

Do you want more energy to get through your day?


Do you want more energy to get through your day?

My client wanted extra energy to work her two  jobs so I recommended the ‘Boost’.

FullSizeRender

She got more than what she had bargained for,  since to her surprise she began to lose weight without doing any exercises or even gym training.

Within two months she had moved from a size 15/16 to 13/14 to the point that she had a new suit which was just too big for her.

She is so excited as she has now realized that losing weight can be easier than you think.

Do you sometimes feel tired on the job, can’t focus, missed some important information in meetings because you dozed off?  Stress can also lead to weight gain and depression.

Diet Pills: Do They Really Work?

HI5 Lean

Diet Pills: Do They Really Work?
from HealthyWomen.org’s Obesity Health Center

Some do, some don’t—and it’s important to understand the difference. Currently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved three drugs to aid long-term weight loss. They are: orlistat (Xenical and Alli), lorcaserin (Belviq) and phentermine-topiramate (Qsymia).

There also are many over-the-counter appetite suppressants and other drugs and supplements that promise rapid weight loss, but they have not proven effective for lasting weight loss, and some can cause potentially dangerous side effects.

The cornerstone of successful weight loss involves lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthful, high-fiber, lower-calorie diet, being physically active and modifying negative behaviors. Numerous studies prove the health dangers of excess pounds, so it’s important to try to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

If you are among the nearly 70 percent of U.S. adults age 20 and older who are overweight or obese, the prescription weight-loss medications may help you get to a healthier weight. However, they won’t help everyone. Weight loss is a serious, long-term endeavor. Always discuss  your options with your health care provider or consult a registered dietitian.

No weight-loss medications should be used if you’re pregnant or trying to become pregnant. Some medications may be restricted if you are less than 18 years old or have certain medical conditions. Like most medications, weight-loss medications have potential side effects. None of the long-term weight-loss drugs is considered high risk for developing a drug dependence, but you should take care if you have a history of drug or alcohol addiction.

Here’s a primer on weight-loss medications:

  • Orlistat works by preventing your body from absorbing about one-third of the fat you eat. It can interfere with the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, so you should take a multivitamin while taking orlistat. It can cause diarrhea, stomach  pain, gas and other gastrointestinal symptoms. These symptoms are usually mild and temporary but may be worse if you eat high-fat foods. In rare cases, orlistat may cause liver damage, so stop taking the drug and contact your health care professional if you notice any symptoms of liver problems, such as dark urine or yellowish eyes or skin. Xenical is the prescription version of orlistat, approved for adults and children 12 and older. Alli is the lower-dose over-the-counter orlistat. It is not approved for children. Do not take orlistat while taking cyclosporine.
  • Lorcaserin affects the chemicals in your brain that help decrease your appetite and make you feel full, so you eat less. It does not work for all people, so if you do not lose 5 percent of your weight within 12 weeks of starting the drug, the medication may not work for you, and you should talk with your health care professional about other options. Side effects of lorcaserin may include headaches, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, dry mouth, cough and constipation. If you are also taking an SSRI antidepressant or MAOI, ask your health care professional about the risk of serotonin syndrome.
  • Phentermine-topiramate combines two FDA-approved drugs. The phentermine suppresses appetite, but used alone, it is only approved for two weeks. By combining a lower dosage of phentermine with extended-release topiramate, the drug has been shown to be safe for up to two years. The medication comes in three doses: starting dose, recommended dose and higher dose. Similar to lorcaserin, it is not effective for everyone, so if you have not lost at least 5 percent of your body weight after 12 weeks on the higher dose of phentermine-topiramate, talk to your health care professional about other options. Common side effects may include tingling hands and feet, dizziness, changes in taste, trouble sleeping, constipation and dry mouth. Rare side effects may include allergic reactions, memory or mood problems, suicidal thoughts, vision problems and kidney stones. It is not recommended if you have an overactive thyroid gland, glaucoma or have recently taken an MAOI antidepressant (though it was safely tested with other antidepressants).

There also are several over-the-counter FDA-approved appetite suppressants that affect the brain chemicals that regulate your appetite. They include:

  • phentermine (Adipex-P, Oby-Cap, Suprenza, T-Diet, Zantryl)
  • benzphetamine (Didrex)
  • diethylpropion (Tenuate, Tenuate Dospan)
  • phendimetrazine (Adipost, Bontril PDM, Bontril Slow Release, Melfiat)

These medications have the potential for abuse and are only FDA-approved for short-term use of up to 12 weeks, though some health care professionals may prescribe them for longer “off-label” use. Side effects can include dry mouth, difficulty sleeping, dizziness, headache, nervousness, restlessness, upset stomach and diarrhea or constipation. Severe side effects may include chest pain, fainting, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, confusion and swelling in your ankles or feet. You should not take appetite suppressants if you have heart disease, high blood pressure, overactive thyroid gland or glaucoma.

These appetite suppressants, along with other over-the-counter remedies like diuretics and supplements, have not been found to be effective long term and some have been linked to serious side effects.

Some issues to think about before considering a weight loss medication:

  1. Your degree of overweight: weight loss medications are usually prescribed for people with a body mass index (BMI) over 27 who have additional complications, such as diabetes; or for those with BMIs over 30 without complications. BMI is a measure of weight status: people with BMIs from 25 to 29.9 are considered overweight; those with BMIs of 30 and above are considered obese.
  2. Your degree of success with other weight loss programs or methods.
  3. Your ability to comply with taking the medications and making long-term lifestyle changes.

Nutrition Label Changes and you

If you are health conscious you need to be aware of this:

Nutrition Label Changes: What Would They Mean?
from HealthyWomen.org’s Diet & Nutrition area

For the first time in 20 years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is proposing changes to the way that food nutrition is labeled. The labels were created to help Americans make better decisions about the foods they eat and to encourage healthy diets. If adopted, the new labels, with a new design, would include better explanations of nutrition science and updated serving sizes. Here’s what you could get from the new labels.

Better understanding of what’s healthy

The new labels involve some changes that make it easier for consumers to understand the nutrition information in relation to a healthy total daily diet. For example, the labels would require companies to list “added sugars,” which can decrease the intake of nutrients and increase calorie intake. Updated daily values for nutrients like sodium, dietary fiber and vitamin D would also be included. Potassium and vitamin D amounts would be required on all labels, because they are considered newly important for public health. Finally, the “calories from fat” measurement would be removed. Research has shown that the type of fat is more important than the amount, so just the types of fat (total, saturated and trans) and their amounts will be listed.

More realistic serving sizes

As you probably know, serving sizes can seem pretty arbitrary, and many are a lot less than what people typically eat or drink. For example, you’re probably not going to stop drinking a 20-ounce soda at the 8-ounce mark and call that one serving. The new labels will include serving sizes that reflect how much people typically eat rather than how much they should eat. Packaged foods and drinks that are usually consumed in one sitting will be labeled as a single serving, so the nutrition information is for the entire amount. Some that could be eaten all at once or spread out would include two columns: one for “per serving” and one for “per package.” This can give people a better picture of how many calories they’re taking in.

Easy-to-read design

The proposed changes would make the serving size and amount of calories on the label more prominent in big, bold text toward the top of the label. The Percent Daily Value measurement would be moved to the left of the label so consumers would read it first. The footnote about the Percent Daily Value would also be altered to more clearly explain the meaning of this measurement, making it easier for people to judge what’s healthy and what’s not.

The FDA is accepting comments on the proposed changes. If approved, it is not known when the changes will occur. If these proposed changes are made, they could have a significant positive impact on the health issues that many people in America face, like obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Types of Foods to reduce Colorectal Cancer Risk

Foods to Reduce Your Colorectal Cancer Risk

vegetables in a market stall

It’s no secret that what you eat has a huge impact on your overall health. An unhealthy diet is a major risk factor for all kinds of diseases, from heart disease to cancer. Colorectal cancer—cancer that starts in either the colon or rectum—is no different. It’s the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and third leading cause of cancer death in women and men, so it’s important to understand what you should be eating to help reduce your risk of this condition.

Check out these good-for-you choices that may help reduce your colorectal cancer risk.

Fruits and veggies

Fruits and vegetables are the main players in any healthy diet. They provide you with great natural sources of the vitamins and minerals your body needs, as well as beneficial substances like antioxidants. Antioxidants help boost the body’s defenses against free radicals, which are byproducts of oxygen use that can damage cells through oxidization. Carotene, beta-carotene and lutein are common antioxidants found in fruits and veggies. Your best bets are foods like berries, carrots, citrus fruits and dark, leafy veggies.

Brown rice (and other whole grains)

The verdict is still out on how and if more fiber can help prevent colorectal cancer specifically; research has been inconclusive so far. However, increased fiber can improve health in general by moving wastes through the digestive tract more quickly. One study by researchers at Loma Linda University, published in Nutrition and Cancer, found that people who ate brown rice at least once a week reduced their risk of colon polyps—potentially precancerous growths—by 40 percent. This is because of brown rice’s high fiber content. Other whole grains can give you fiber too.

Lean protein and fish

Studies have shown that red meat consumption is linked to a higher risk of colorectal cancer. Processed, salted, smoked or cured meats should also be avoided. Instead, choose lean protein like poultry and eat plenty of fish. If you still want red meat on occasion, limit yourself to two small portions a week of red meat that’s a lean cut, trimmed of fat and not charred on the grill.

Legumes

Legumes were also part of the Loma Linda study, and eating them at least three times a week led to a 33 percent reduced risk of colon polyps. Peanuts, chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans and peas all count. Aim to get at least three servings a week, preferably more.

Ginger

A study published in Cancer Prevention Research by researchers at the University of Michigan Medical School found that taking ginger supplements for 28 days reduced study participants’ colon inflammation significantly. In prior studies, inflammation has been linked to colon cancer, and while more trials are needed, it seems safe to say that increasing your ginger intake isn’t a bad thing.
