“..Its basic recommendation encourages the daily practice of meditation, and this is perhaps the best way to address the root of depression and change it. This requires long-term commitment, however, as meditation does not produce immediate results.

Exercise. For more immediate, symptomatic depression treatment, there is no better method than regular aerobic exercise. Numerous studies have demonstrated the efficacy of a daily workout for improving emotional health and boosting self confidence. I recommend thirty minutes of continuous activity, at least five days a week for best results.
Check your meds. Make sure you are not taking any over-the-counter or prescription medications that contribute to depression. Avoid all antihistamines, tranquilizers, sleeping pills and narcotics if you have any tendency toward depression. You should also be cautious about the use of recreational drugs, notably alcohol, cocaine, amphetamines, downers, marijuana and ecstasy. These substances may provide a temporary sense of relief, but are likely to intensify depression to dangerous levels if used regularly.
Cut caffeine. Addiction to coffee and other forms of caffeine often interferes with normal moods and can aggravate depression.
Try acupuncture. This modality has proven itself to be very useful in treating several mood disorders, including depression.
Seek professional help. Find a psychotherapist, mental health professional or grief counselor who can help you explore the elements contributing to your depression and facilitate recovery. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be especially helpful.
Anti-depressant medications. Speak to your physician to determine if you are a candidate for anti-depressant medication. Proceed with caution, however, as an analysis by British researchers published in February, 2008, suggested that many commonly prescribed anti-depressant pharmaceuticals have limited effectiveness.

“..

We’ll be doing a story on CAM therapies for psychiatric disorders in an upcoming issue of the Harvard Mental Health Letter. For now, here are some things I learned on Saturday:

Omega-3 fats, natural fats found in large quantities in cold-water fish such as salmon, can boost the effectiveness of an antidepressant in some people with depression. Omega-3 supplements are now being studied as an alternative to antidepressants during pregnancy.

St. John’s wort is an herbal remedy that can help people with mild-to-moderate symptoms of depression, but doesn’t seem to work as well for severe depression. St. John’s wort can cause problems when taken with some antidepressants and other medications, so talk with your doctor before trying it.

Maca root, a relative of the potato that is used in some cultures to enhance sexual response, may help counter erectile dysfunction, reduced libido, and other sexual side effects of antidepressants.

Valerian, derived from the root of a pink flower, can alleviate anxiety and help improve sleep just as well as some sedatives. It may be a good alternative to consider for children and the elderly—two groups especially sensitive to the side effects of medications. One downside: it takes a while to “kick in,” so if you need fast relief, look elsewhere.

Words to the wise. Just because these remedies come from plants and animals doesn’t automatically mean they are safe. Herbal remedies have unwanted side effects and can interact with medications just like antidepressants and other drugs do. Talk with your doctor before trying any alternative approach, especially if you take any medications…”

Reading Nutrition Food Labels

Food Labels – Nutrition Labels – How To Read Food Labels

Published on Feb 15, 2017

In this video I discuss how to read food labels and what all of the sections of the label are telling you.

Food labels can be tricky, so it is important to understand what these labels are actually telling you.

The Nutrition Facts Label can be broken into 5 parts; 1) serving size, 2) calories, 3) amount of nutrients, 4) Percent daily value and 5) the footnote portion.

Serving Size
The serving size section tells what 1 serving size actually is, and the total amount of servings in the container. Serving sizes are usually standardized to make it easy to compare similar foods. For instance here are 2 food labels for organic soups, black bean vegetable on the left, chunky vegetable on the right. You can see both list a serving size as 1 cup or 245 grams.

Calories
Next is the calories section. Calories are a measurement of energy from food for your body. Here we have the nutrition label for Lucky Charms cereal. Most people grab a bowl, and fill it up near the top, then add in milk paying no attention to serving size.

But, 1 serving size is actually ¾ of a cup of the cereal and ½ cup of non fat milk. According to the serving size section, this would provide 150 total calories, 110 calories from the cereal and 40 calories from the milk. The full bowl of cereal and milk totaled 448 calories. So, 150 calories vs 448 calories, quite a difference.

Amount of nutrients
The next section lists the amount of nutrients in a serving size. Here you will see the macronutrients, Fats, carbohydrates and protein. Macronutrients are what provide calories, or energy for your body. Other items listed usually include cholesterol and sodium, and typically under the carbohydrates section the amount of fiber and sugar are listed.

Cholesterol, sodium and sugar are listed because many people over consume these items, and fiber is listed because most people are deficient in it. The percentages on the right tell you the percentage of the recommended amount of each item, in a serving size. These percentages are based on a person consuming a 2000 calorie diet per day. For instance, the black bean vegetable soup provides 5g of fiber, at 20%.

This means that 1 serving of the soup provides 20% of the recommended amount of fiber most people need per day. Keep in mind that every persons nutrient needs are different.

Percent daily value of micronutrients
Percent of daily value is the next section. This section tells you the percentage of micronutrients, vitamins and minerals, in a serving size of the food item. Again, These percentages are based on a person consuming a 2000 calorie diet per day.

If we look at the lucky charms label, we see the cereal provides 10% of the recommend daily value of calcium, with the milk that increases to 25%. So, one serving size of the cereal with the milk will provide 25% of the recommended amount of calcium most people need per day. Again, Keep in mind that every persons nutrient needs are different.

Footnote
The last part of a food label is the footnote section. Percent daily values are based on 2000 calorie diet. This statement appears on all food labels, as you can see on this cracker label and on this yogurt label. The remaining portion you see on the yogurt label will appear if the size of the label is large enough.

The recommended daily values are listed for several nutrients, and are based on public health experts’ advice. They are listed for 2000 and 2500 calorie diets. The recommended daily values change for the energy nutrients, but stay the same for cholesterol, sodium and potassium.

You can also see that the recommendations for total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium are listed as less than, meaning that these are maximum intake recommendations.

I will say this for a 3rd time, only because it is extremely important, every persons nutrient needs are different, an athlete, a runner, or someone that leads a very sedentary lifestyle. All of these people will have different nutrient needs.

And that be the basics on food labels.

Today I am going to teach you guys how to read nutrition facts labels. One of the best ways to improve your health quickly is by learning how to read nutrition labels.

The first thing you’ll notice at the top of nutrition facts are the serving size and servings per container.

This is simply the “amount” in the package or container.

Pretty self explanatory…

Next you have the ingredients.

Everything inside these black lines is representative of ONE serving.

This is important to understand because, next you will see the calories and the calories from fat.

This is pretty much the only thing most people ever look at and this is a common mistake…

If the package says 200 calories on the bag of chips, but the serving per container says 2.5, that means there is actually 500 calories in the bag…

This is a clever little marketing trick that you should pay attention to.

Pressing on, you will see the total fat on the package along with a number and a percentage on the right hand side.

The number represents the total fat in one serving and percentage represents the percentage based on a 2000 calorie diet.

So 8 gram is 12% of a 2000 calorie diet.

I should also remind you that fat is not bad for you and there are plenty of healthy foods that are high in fat.

What you really want to watch out for is any trans fat.

Trans fat is the kind linked to heart disease and all sorts of bad stuff. Avoid this at all costs.

Saturated fat should be much less of a concern.

This may surprise some of you, so I will link a few studies below that have conclusively proven that saturated fat is fine to eat and not the cause of the many diseases it was wrongly accused for.

Think of saturated fat as the middle child of the fat family, he’s got a good heart but is just a little misunderstood.

Now, you may be thinking, wait a minute…

Why does the total number of saturated fat and trans fat not add up to the total fat at the top…

Where’s the other 7 grams?

Well this is because not all fats will be listed on the nutrition label.

Only the nutrients deemed most important ever make it to the nutrition labels.

Don’t worry though.

The other fats not listed are generally healthy and should be much less of a concern.

Pressing on you will see cholesterol and sodium.

Remember, these numbers are based on ONE serving.

If the sodium was 25% of your daily intake and the package had 2.5 servings in it. That means the entire package contains 63% of you daily sodium intake.

Quite a bit considering this is one snack.

Onward, you’ll sees the carbohydrate section.

Carbohydrates are the breads, grains, fiber and SUGARS in the food.

The first section you’ll see is for dietary fiber.

Having a good amount of dietary fiber is a good thing as it helps with digestion and satisfaction from meals.

Now the next section is what you need to pay attention to.

The total sugars in the food you’re eating are important to watch out for as, like the trans fats, these have been linked to a whole host of diseases and health problems.

Also you should be aware of not only the sugar in the food, but what kind of carbohydrates you’re eating.

If the food is very high in carbohydrates, but low in dietary fiber, even though the carbs are not labeled as “sugar,” they will operate very similarly in the blood stream.

These are called “simple carbs.”

This is why you need to watch out for unrefined carbohydrates like white bread and pastas.

Next up, you’ll see the label for protein.

Knowing that foods high in protein lead to better satisfaction from meals, and promote lean muscle tissue, you will want most of the foods you eat to have a good amount of protein.

Finally, we have a few key vitamins at the bottom.

It may sound strange, but ignore these.

The numbers will be notoriously low and you should be focusing instead on getting in lots of fruits and vegetables every day to meet your vitamin requirements.

Leafy greens contain calcium and iron, and fruits contain vitamin c and a.

The rest of the nutrition labels facts contain recommendations about how much of each category to get in.

They do not change on nutrition labels and are not that important.

Finally, on some labels you will see the calories per gram for each macronutrient.

Fat contains 9 grams per serving and Carbohydrates and Proteins contain 4.

So for every 10 grams of fat, you will have 90 calories. For every 10 grams of protein or carbs you will get 40 calories.

Safe to say, you should now have a general understanding of how nutrition labels work.

Most importantly, you can stop assuming something is healthy for you based on tricky packaging and start KNOWING the difference.

The Best Time of Day to: Exercise, Cheat On A Diet, and More! Health
|July 20, 2011|

‘..According to Dr. Oz, the big rule of thumb is that you need to have dinner more than three hours before you go to bed, so that you aren’t going to bed with a full stomach…

When you exercise in the morning — cardio and strength training is key — you kick-start your metabolism, which will help you burn more calories throughout your day…

The best time to eat fats is at 10 a.m because fat acts as a source of energy, so have your fats in the morning so you can burn them off all day. For carbs, 1 p.m is the best time to indulge since they increase your level of serotonin and will prevent snacking throughout the rest of the day — yay for pizza for lunch. Sugar intake is 2 p.m since this will give you instant energy during your midafternoon slump, and 5 p.m is the best time for an alcoholic beverage since in small doses it can act as a stimulant, but in high doses it’s a depressant, so at 5, this will give your body lots of time to metabolize it by bedtime. Three cheers for happy hour!..”

Dietary Fats: What’s Good and What’s Bad familydoctor.org
“..“Bad” fats

Saturated and trans fats are bad for you. Less than 7% of your total daily calories should come from saturated fats. Less than 1% should come from trans fats. In a 2,000-calorie daily diet, that’s less than 15 grams of saturated fat and less than 2 grams of trans fat.

Saturated fats occur naturally in some animal products. This includes meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy items, such as cheese, cream and whole milk. Palm, coconut, and other tropical oils, as well as cocoa butter, contain saturated fat.

Trans fats are made when liquid oils get turned into solid fats. This process is called hydrogenation. Trans fats are found in a lot of processed foods. All food companies have to list trans fat on nutrition fact labels. However, foods can have up to .5 grams of trans fat per serving and still show 0 grams. Check the ingredients list and look for the words “hydrogenated oil.”

You should limit saturated fats and avoid trans fats. They often are found in fast food, fried foods, and snack foods. They also can be in desserts and commercial baked goods. These bad fats increase your LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. They decrease your HDL (good) cholesterol levels….

“Good” fats

Replace bad fats with good fats. Studies show that good fats can help lower your total cholesterol level. Omega-3 fatty acids have good health benefits. They can decrease your risk of heart attack and inflammation.

Monounsaturated fats are found in canola, olive, and peanut oils. They are in a variety of nut oils and butters. Avocados, legumes (beans and peas), and seeds also contain these fats.

Polyunsaturated fats are found in vegetable oils like corn, sunflower, and safflower oil. They are in soybeans, legumes, grains, and nuts. Several seeds, like sesame and sunflower, also contain these fats.

Omega-3 fatty acids are usually found in seafood. This includes salmon, herring, sardines, and mackerel. Flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, and walnuts also contain omega-3s…”

Medical: How the Heart Functions?

Human Heart – Diagram and Anatomy of the Heart innerbody.com

“…
The heart is a muscular organ about the size of a closed fist that functions as the body’s circulatory pump. It takes in deoxygenated blood through the veins and delivers it to the lungs for oxygenation before pumping it into the various arteries (which provide oxygen and nutrients to body tissues by transporting the blood throughout the body). The heart is located in the thoracic cavity medial to the lungs and posterior to the sternum.

On its superior end, the base of the heart is attached to the aorta,……

How the Heart Works

How the Heart Works

The heart is made up of chambers, muscles, and valves

“Your heart has four chambers (these are like rooms). Each chamber has a valve that opens and closes like a gate to make sure that blood can only travel in one direction, like a one-way traffic system…”
….

Blood is pumped through the heart in a specific direction

“…Blood flows from the body into the right side of the heart, then out to the lungs, before re-entering the heart on the left side and being pumped back out to the rest of the body.

The atria are like the ‘entrance rooms’ of the heart. Blood lacking in oxygen first enters the heart through the right atrium (via the vena cava)
Blood flows from the right atrium into the right ventricle
The right ventricle pumps blood to the lungs (via the pulmonary artery) where it collects oxygen
Oxygen-rich blood from the lungs flows back to the heart (via the pulmonary vein) and arrives in the left atrium
This blood flows from the left atrium into the left ventricle, where it is pumped out to the rest of the body (via the aorta).
..”

Terms:

Inferior vena cava healthline.com
“… is also referred to as the posterior vena cava. The inferior vena cava is a large vein that carries de-oxygenated blood from the lower body to the heart. De-oxygenated blood means most of the oxygen has been removed by tissues, and therefore the blood is darker. This blood comes from the legs and the lower torso of the body. The inferior vena cava empties into the right atrium of the heart. ..”

“..The arteries are the blood vessels that deliver oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the tissues of the body. Each artery is a muscular tube lined by smooth tissue and has three layers:

The intima, the inner layer lined by a smooth tissue called endothelium
The media, a layer of muscle that lets arteries handle the high pressures from the heart
The adventitia, connective tissue anchoring arteries to nearby tissues

The largest artery is the aorta, the main high-pressure pipeline connected to the heart’s left ventricle. The aorta branches into a network of smaller arteries that extend throughout the body. The arteries’ smaller branches are called arterioles and capillaries. The pulmonary arteries carry oxygen-poor blood from the heart to the lungs under low pressure, making these arteries unique…”

What is the conventional treatment for congestive heart failure?

…This means controlling blood pressure via lifestyle measures such as diet and exercise, or with medication if diet and exercise don’t help. Drugs may be prescribed to slow the progression of the disease by improving the heart’s ability to pump blood, decreasing stress on the heart and preventing fluid retention (which can lead to pulmonary edema, a condition in which fluid retention in the lungs has become so severe that emergency intervention is required). These medications may include ACE-inhibitors, beta blockers, digoxin, diuretics and, if needed, anticoagulants to thin the blood. Individuals with heart failure should avoid taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, most antiarrhythmic agents unless absolutely necessary (often used to help correct abnormalities in the rhythm and rate of the heartbeat), most calcium antagonists, decongestants (they make the heart work harder) and antacids containing sodium, which can cause fluid retention…”

Unfortunately, many younger adults don’t seem to be heeding the warnings associated with strokes, which represent the 5th leading cause of death in the United States…

An ischemic stroke, the most common type, occurs as a result of an obstruction within a blood vessel supplying blood to the brain. It accounts for nearly 90 percent of all stroke cases and can potentially be treated with tPA, the clot-busting drug, if treated promptly. Far fewer strokes are hemorrhagic, caused when a weakened blood vessel ruptures. Delays in treating strokes can lead to death or severe debilitation.

“There are reports that people 35 to 55 are having more strokes and it’s unclear exactly why that is,” says Felipe De Los Rios, M.D., Medical Director, Stroke Program at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center. “But what we do know is that diseases we normally see in older people are happening at younger ages. We see more obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.”

Effect of exercise training and myocardial infarction on force development and contractile kinetics in isolated canine myocardium ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
“..moderate exercise training elicits a small increase in ventricular mass (i.e., a physiological hypertrophy) that has many beneficial effects on overall cardiac health. It is also well known that, when a myocardial infarction damages part of the heart, the remaining myocardium remodels to compensate for the loss of viable functioning myocardium. The effects of exercise training, myocardial infarction (MI), and their interaction on the contractile performance of the myocardium itself remain largely to be determined. The present study investigated the contractile properties and kinetics of right ventricular myocardium isolated from sedentary and exercise trained (10-12 wk progressively increasing treadmill running, begun 4 wk after MI induction) dogs with and without a left ventricular myocardial infarction. Exercise training increased force development, whereas MI decreased force development that was not improved by exercise training. Contractile kinetics were significantly slower in the trained dogs, whereas this impact of training was less or no longer present after MI. Length-dependent activation, both evaluated on contractile force and kinetics, was similar in all four groups. The control exercise-trained group exhibited a more positive force-frequency relationship compared with the sedentary control group while both sedentary and trained post-MI dogs had a more negative relationship. Last, the impact of the β-adrenergic receptor agonist isoproterenol resulted in a similar increase in force and acceleration of contractile kinetics in all groups. Thus, exercise training increased developed force but slowed contractile kinetics in control (noninfarcted animals), actions that were attenuated or completely absent in post-MI dogs…”

Coronary Calcium Score – No Doctor’s Order? healio.com
“.. Note that a coronary calcium score IS NOT a test to see if a patient’s symptoms are heart-related. To evaluate chest pain or other potential anginal symptoms, stress testing is the preferred method. A person’s calcium score could be quite high without any obstructive coronary stenosis (and vise versa). It is important to keep this test as a risk assessment only. Patients may have a different perception if not well educated and might have the scan done to see if their “heartburn” is really from their heart. This is quite inappropriate and potentially dangerous. Look at this image below showing a CT of a coronary vessel with extensive calcification, then look at the correlating invasive coronary angiogram showing absolutely no flow-limiting stenosis:..

So, to get a coronary calcium score or not? Is it worth the 0.9 mSv to 2.4 mSv of radiation exposure? If you are a middle-aged person with no previous heart disease diagnosis or risk equivalent (diabetes or peripheral arterial disease), no potential anginal symptoms, and some risk factors for heart disease such as hypertension, tobacco use, dyslipidemia or a family history of ischemic heart disease, then this test is for you … as long as you understand and accept the risk of radiation exposure, which is low but present. Perhaps every 3 years the test can be repeated to assess for any change, however no more frequently than that.

Top Natural Remedies for Coronary Heart Disease
“..Foods That Heal Heart Disease

Instead of focusing on foods that reduce fat and cholesterol, we would be much better off making the goal to reduce inflammation. Heart disease is really caused by the inflammation of arteries, and yet modern medicine focuses on treating symptoms, not addressing the root cause of the issue….

Begin incorporating one new anti-inflammatory food to your diet each day. Don’t be afraid to try new things and keep it interesting!

Foods that help reduce inflammation and, therefore, the risk of CHD include:

Fiber-rich and antioxidant-rich foods of all kinds
Vegetables (all kinds, including beets, carrots, cruciferous vegetables like Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and kale, dark leafy greens, artichokes, onions, peas, salad greens, mushrooms, sea vegetables and squashes)
Fruits (all kinds, especially berries and citrus)
Herbs and spices, especially turmeric (curcumin) and raw garlic (also basil, chili peppers, cinnamon, curry powder, ginger, rosemary and thyme)
Traditional teas like green tea, oolong or white tea
Legumes and beans
Healthy fats found in nuts, seeds, avocados, wild-caught fish, coconut oil and extra virgin olive oil
Raw, unpasteurized dairy products, cage-free eggs and pasture-raised poultry
Red wine in moderation

How to deal with Anxiety-Stress in life?

CAUSES

What Causes Anxiety? medicalnewstoday.com
“Anxiety disorders may be caused by environmental factors, medical factors, genetics, brain chemistry, substance abuse, or a combination of these. It is most commonly triggered by the stress in our lives.

Usually anxiety is a response to outside forces, but it is possible that we make ourselves anxious with “negative self-talk” – a habit of always telling ourselves the worst will happen. …

“…Caffeine affects brain chemistry by raising levels of dopamine; in sufficient amounts coffee and other caffeine-laden drinks can bring on panic attack symptoms. The jitteriness you feel from a shot of espresso comes from elevated dopamine. The neurotransmitter imbalances that cause anxiety are related to those in children with ADHD and ADD (conditions also associated with high dopamine); in fact, what may look like ADD in some children may actually be related to severe anxiety. The symptoms can be very similar. Read more about caffeine in our Detoxification section…”

“….
7 / 10 Food to Avoid: Coffee and Caffeinated Drinks

Some people drink coffee and other beverages that contain caffeine (tea, cola, and hot chocolate) to help boost their energy levels. The problem is that caffeine has been shown to inhibit levels of serotonin in the brain, and, when serotonin levels are suppressed, you can become depressed and feel irritable. Caffeine is also a diuretic — it makes you go to the bathroom more often. Even mild dehydration can cause depression. Caffeine also can keep you awake, leading to stress and anxiety. Remember that you need to sleep well to be in a positive mood.

Children

Helping Kids Cope With Stress – KidsHealth kidshealth.org

“..But it’s not always easy for parents to know what to do for a child who’s feeling stressed.

Here are a few ideas:

Notice out loud. Tell your child when you notice that something’s bothering him or her. If you can, name the feeling you think your child is experiencing. (“It seems like you’re still mad about what happened at the playground.”) This shouldn’t sound like an accusation (as in, “OK, what happened now? Are you still mad about that?”) or put a child on the spot. It’s just a casual observation that you’re interested in hearing more about your child’s concern. Be sympathetic and show you care and want to understand.

Listen to your child. Ask your child to tell you what’s wrong. Listen attentively and calmly — with interest, patience, openness, and caring. Avoid any urge to judge, blame, lecture, or say what you think your child should have done instead. The idea is to let your child’s concerns (and feelings) be heard. Try to get the whole story by asking questions like “And then what happened?” Take your time. And let your child take his or her time, too…”

Overcoming Stress, Anxiety, and Depression Holistically; Part 3: Balanced Brain Chemistry

Sal: I have a calendar that I write do my daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly goals. This gives me “purpose” and motivates me to get up each day, which making “goals” as describes in the video above helps improves brain chemistry (serotonin). Plus, making goals (planning ahead) reduces stress caused by “last minute” unexpected events in life.

Also, I stopped drinking pop/soda (caffeine) many years ago due to dental health, which I’ve seen positive health results.

Anxiety And Worry In Women – Causes, Symptoms And Natural Relief, womentowomen.com
“…Anxiety relief: natural treatments for anxiety

Relief from chronic anxiety comes from restoring your body’s natural, healthy equilibrium. You can do that through change in a number of factors: lifestyle, diet, allergies, exercise levels, hormonal balance, general physical health, and your emotional history.

At our practice, we treat anxiety with nutrition and nutritional supplements, some prescription medications, emotional work and bodywork. Let’s review these methods for anxiety relief in detail…

Physical activity is the single best anxiety medication I know. It’s essential to hormonal balance. In one study, people who engaged in 30–60 minutes of moderate exercise every day reported less anxiety than a similar group on anti-anxiety meds who did not exercise….”

19 Natural Remedies for Anxiety by Robert A. Barnett health.com
“…There are many safe nondrug remedies for anxiety, from mind-body techniques to supplements to calming teas. Some start working right away, while others may help lessen anxiety over time…

Hold your breath!

Ok, let it out now. We’re not recommending that you turn blue, but yoga breathing has been shown to be effective in lowering stress and anxiety. In his bestselling 2011 book Spontaneous Happiness, Andrew Weil, MD, introduced a classic yoga breathing technique he calls the 4-7-8 breath.

One reason it works is that you can’t breathe deeply and be anxious at the same time. To do the 4-7-8 breath, exhale completely through your mouth, then inhale through your nose for a count of four. Hold your breath for a count of seven. Now let it out slowly through your mouth for a count of eight. Repeat at least twice a day. …”

Sal: I learned some of these breathing techniques during my first theatrical play I did last weekend. In fact, there was one scene that I added this to help with my anxiety and stress.

How to Get Rid of Anxiety Naturally Fast | All Natural Ways


“..Meditation as well as relaxation strategies? These are proven efficient approaches in taking care of anxiety strikes. With meditation and relaxation strategies such as breathing techniques, the mind will certainly be able to control the physical body. Meditation as well as leisure techniques could be utilized during an anxiety strike to reduce the heart beat, control breathing, as well as draw away the mind away from the source of anxiety strike. Although these approaches need practice, as soon as you learn the appropriate techniques, they are very effective.

Diet? The food we consume plays a big part in our total wellness, including our mental health and wellness. A well-balanced diet plan as well as healthy eating promotes a healthy and balanced brain as well as a healthy physical body. It is recommended to prefer all-natural or natural foods as opposed to refined foods or those with chemicals and also chemicals. If the source of anxiety attack is weight issue, adjusting a diet that assists you reduce weight can solve the problem.

Workout? Besides diet regimen, an additional crucial element that aids promote a healthy and balanced health is workout. Researches suggest that as little as 30 mins of workout, 3 to 5 times a week could have excellent results to the physical body along with the mind.

Natural treatments – St. John Wort, Hyperforin, 5HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan), Melissa officinalis, Ginkgo Biloba, passionflower, valerian, scullcap, California poppy, hops and lavender are made use of as an option to prescription medicines to deal with anxiety. Organic herbs can be made as tea, yet some of these are currently offered non-prescription as powder, fluid, capsule, oil, tincture, tablet computers as well as tea.

Pray? If you think in the power of prayer, pray. Many researches show that prayer is an effective way to alleviate stress as well as anxiety as prayers have calming and also comforting effect both on the physical body as well as on the mind.

Laugh? Laughter still holds the title as the very best medicine. This is because when you laugh, your body releases endorphins or “pleased chemicals” that help you to really feel excellent as well as better.

Identify where anxiety is originating from? Often, anxiety strikes happen for no evident factor. However that doesn’t mean that there is actually no reason. Nevertheless something could not happen from absolutely nothing. Therefore, if you experience an episode of anxiety assault, there must be a trigger (it could be directly linked to the strike or it may originate from another thing, completely aside from the occasion).

Once you identify the reason of the strike (which is as essential as identifying that you are having one), it is very easy manage it straight as well as refine your condition using the natural methods stated above or via medicine as well as therapy.

Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[e]?28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

I bike for many reasons (e.g. health, fitness, financial, etc..).

However, it’ll be interesting to get the totals for calories burned, money saved from gas usage for a car if I did had to drive, and miles I biked after this 3-month challenge.

The rewards are many. I never get stuck in traffic. I never have to wait for a tow truck to get a jump-start or change my oil or pay for gas. The peace and solitude of an early morning ride through a light January snow is something that I would never give up.

Regardless of the weather, you benefit greatly by riding a bike more. The exercise alone is an almost unimaginable reward. Instead of sedentary transport by car, the very act of going from place to place by bike gets your heart pumping, blood flowing and the calories burning. …”

Sal: I like to ride during the winter as it beats waiting to warm-up your vehicle just to drive 1 mile from work. I rather use that time and ride instead of wasting that gas and it’s great exercise. Another plus is you don’t have to deal with getting your car stuck due to snow plows causing snow drifts. However, I’ve learned to bike more when the roads are clear of ice as it’s safer. I then use my car if it’s too slippery, slushy, or too “rough”.

Deficiency

What Are Vitamin D Deficiency Symptoms?

Dr. Josh Axe
Published on Apr 23, 2015
For more info: https://draxe.com/vitamin-d-deficienc&#8230;

In this video I’m going to talk about the benefits of vitamin D as well as symptoms of vitamin D deficiency. In certain studies, Americans has been found to be the #1 population in vitamin D deficiency. Some of the main symptoms of vitamin D deficiency are a weakened immune system, candida or bacterial overgrowth, emotional ups and downs, hormone imbalance, trouble putting on muscle or losing weight, weakened bones or teeth, cancer, heart disease, or diabetes. Vitamin D supports having a healthy immune response, digestive health, hormone balance, and more.

The biggest causes of vitamin D deficiency are not getting enough sunlight, certain chemicals from plastic bottles (bpa), and toxicity. Try to get outside everyday for about 20-30 minutes of natural sunlight.

Certain foods that are sources of vitamin D are wild caught fish, raw fermented milk, mushrooms, and eggs. However, there are small amounts in the food you eat.

For a good supplement, I would recommend a high quality vitamin D supplement. You don’t want to take vitamin D2, but you do want to take vitamin D3. For supplementation, take about 2000-5000 IUs a day. However, if you have a severe deficiency, then for 1-2 months, you may take 5000 IUs twice daily. Lastly, you want to take your vitamin D3 with some form of fat like coconut oil or avocado to help absorption in your body. For more on vitamin d deficiency, you can check out this article: http://draxe.com/vitamin-d-deficiency&#8230;

After I posted my blood test results and revealed my vitamin D deficiency, a few of you asked why vitamin D deficiency was so common, even among people who seem to be getting enough sun exposure like myself. I thought it would be a great topic for a video, so here it is.

In this video, I discuss the various factors that inhibit the production of vitamin D, such as:
◘ using sunscreens
◘ staying away from the sun around midday
◘ excess weight
◘ inflammatory bowel diseases
◘ prescription medications
◘ not exposing the torso, etc

In the next video about Vitamin D, I’ll be talking about the best ways to optimize vitamin D levels and I’ll be sharing my action plan: what I’m doing to increase my own vitamin D. Keep an eye out if you’re interested!

The video where I talk about my surprising blood test results is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hiaf2&#8230;

The Benefits of Vitamin D
Written by the Healthline Editorial Team | Published on May 20, 2013 healthline.com

Called the “sunshine vitamin,” vitamin D is vital to strong bones and teeth and a healthy immune system. Learn how to get the dose you need….”

How Do You Get It?

Your body produces vitamin D naturally through direct exposure to sunlight. A little can go a long way: just 10 minutes a day of mid-day sun exposure is plenty, especially if you’re fair-skinned.

Besides getting vitamin D through sunlight, you can also get it through certain foods and supplements. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends that you obtain vitamin D from all three of these sources in order to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood.”

Vitamin D from Sunshine Exposure in Winter

Laura Bergells
Published on Jan 2, 2018
This is how I get my Vitamin D from sunshine in the winter. I take a 10 minute Vitamin D break at noon.

My front porch faces south, so I sit in an alcove and get fresh air and free Vitamin D on my arms and legs and face. Even in subzero weather, I can usually last 10 minutes or so, because the alcove protects me from the wind. The heat from the sun keeps me warm.

I might get a few goosebumps, but it’s not that hard to take a Vitamin D break. We don’t get too many sunny days up here in Michigan in the winter, so when we do, I take advantage!

For me, it’s fun and refreshing. Bonus: I get a chance to meditate, which also helps my health and well-being. This Vitamin D is free – which means I don’t have to pay for vitamins and medicines that don’t really work for me, anyway.

For me, it works. I like it. Surely, I can’t be the only one who takes Vitamin D breaks on sunny days in the winter!

-NO SUN

“.. There’s also the issue that the intensity of the sun’s UVB rays varies with the season, time of day, and geographic location, so the standard recommended exposure times aren’t really helpful. Surprisingly, parts of the northern hemisphere don’t receive strong enough UVB light to spur vitamin D production for a big portion of the year!

There’s also the issue of how much skin must be exposed to the sun for your body to make sufficient vitamin D. Is it enough if you only expose your face and hands, or should you expose your face, arms, and chest? No one knows for sure, and just guessing or not applying sunscreen to certain exposed areas while protecting others doesn’t make sense.

The solution is twofold: Ask your doctor for a blood test to find out if you’re vitamin D deficient. If you are, your doctor can advise you about which vitamin D supplement to take and about consuming more vitamin D–enriched foods. The supplement discussion is important; be sure your doctor talks to you about the dose and frequency of use to ensure you don’t get too much vitamin D, which can cause its own set of problems…

Along with supplements, you can get vitamin D from fortified foods, such as milk and orange juice, as well as from eating fish such as

salmon

, tuna

, sardines

, and mackerel. Beef, shitake mushrooms,

egg yolks

, and fortified cereals are also good sources….”

Sun Exposure: Vitamin D And Other Health Benefits Of Sunlight

“A Better Night’s Sleep

Your amount of daylight exposure is vital in maintaining a normal circadian rhythm. These rhythms include physical, mental, and behavioral changes that follow a 24-hour cycle and respond to light and darkness in the body’s environment, says the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS). The sleep-wake cycle is contingent on morning sunlight to help you sleep at night. Natural daylight helps your body clock restart to its active daytime phase. To ensure that your body clock is in sync, be sure to go outside and get some sunlight when you wake up or turn on the lights in your room. This will give your body the signal that it is daytime and not nighttime. To avoid confusing your circadian rhythm, try not to sit in dim settings during the day because your body will associate the bright light with night. The less morning light you expose yourself to, the more difficult it will be for you to fall asleep and wake up at your set time, says Discovery.com.

Enhances Your Mood

Regular sunlight exposure can naturally increase the serotonin levels in your body, making you more active and alert. In an article published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), exposure to bright light is seen as an approach to increase serotonin without the use of drugs. The positive correlation between the development of serotonin and the hours of sunlight during the day was seen in healthy volunteers. In a sample size of 101 healthy men, researchers found that turnover of serotonin in the brain was lowest during the winter whereas the production rate of serotonin was highest when the subjects stayed in the sunlight longer.

The article therefore suggests that spending time in the summer sun can help you avoid the winter blues. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), seasonal depression, and mood variation has been linked to sunlight exposure. Dr. Timo Partonen from the University of Helsinki’s National Public Health Institute in Finland and researchers found that blood levels of cholecalciferol, also known as vitamin D3, are relatively low in the winter months. Sunlight exposure in the summer can equip your body to stock up on vitamin D3 that can last throughout the fall and yield for the production of more vitamin D, which leads to higher serotonin levels.

Lowers Blood Pressure

Skin that is exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays release a compound, nitric oxide, that lowers blood pressure. In a recent study conducted at Edinburgh University, dermatologists studied the blood pressure of 34 volunteers under UV and heat lamps. In one session, the volunteers were exposed to both light sources and in the other session, the UV rays were blocked so only the heat affected the skin. The results of the study showed a significant drop in blood pressure after exposure to UV rays for an hour but not after the heat-only sessions. It is important to note that the volunteers’ vitamin D levels were unaffected in both sessions.

Actually Protects From Melanoma

Yes, safe sun exposure can actually protect you from melanoma. The skin’s exposure to ultraviolet radiation of short wavelegnths (UVB) has been linked to a decreased risk of melanoma in outdoor workers compared to their indoor counterparts, which suggests chronic sunlight exposure can have a protective effect, says The Lancet Journal….”
