“..1. Balance Your Hydrochloric Acid Levels

Increasing natural production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is the first step to preventing acid reflux. Replace cheap table salt with high-quality sea salt…

I also recommend taking a plant derived Betaine HCL supplement before meals.[3] This is extremely effective at preventing acid reflux.
2. Change Your Diet

Processed foods and sugars are almost a guaranteed way to exacerbate acid reflux and create a bacterial imbalance in the stomach and intestinal tract. ..

3. Take a Digestive Enzyme Supplement

Enzymes are found in abundance in raw food, but the act of cooking food over 116° Fahrenheit destroys the health-promoting enzymes. …

4. Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

I recommend taking one tablespoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar mixed in about 4 ounces of purified water before each meal. ..

5. Take Organic Baking Soda

Bicarbonate is a wonder product. Mix a spoonful in a glass of water, stir, and drink before it stops fizzing.[4]..

Aloe vera is commonly used to calm an upset stomach, diarrhea, and redness associated with bowel diseases such as ulcerative colitis.[..”

Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in your muscles – over 61% of skeletal muscle is Glutamine. Glutamine consists of 19% nitrogen, making it the primary transporter of nitrogen into your muscle cells.

During intense training, Glutamine levels are greatly depleted in your body, which decreases strength, stamina and recovery. It could take up to 6 days for Glutamine levels to return to normal – and Glutamine plays a key role in protein synthesis. Studies have shown that L-Glutamine supplementation can minimize breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism.

One very important area of life in which baking soda can greatly assist us is exercise. We all know the feeling of being utterly winded when we work out. Anyone who’s ever done high-intensity exercise knows the feeling of stiff joints, sore muscles, and lingering fatigue that this activity can bring.

The process of vigorous exercise leads to a buildup of lactic acid in our joints.

How to Use Caffeine to Improve Your Athletic Performance

‘..Thankfully, if you’re relying on caffeine to help you run faster in a race, you’ll still get a benefit even if it’s your hundredth day in a row of chugging coffee in the morning. But for the best results, you may want to go off caffeine for a week or more before an important race.

When the big day comes, the International Society for Sports Nutrition recommends taking a big hit of caffeine one hour before your event starts. Caffeine begins to circulate in your blood after about 15 minutes if you take it on an empty stomach, or longer (45 minutes or more) if you have it with food.

Cancer Types: How to “fight” Ovarian?

CAUSES

Do We Know What Causes Ovarian Cancer? cancer.org
“..There are many theories about the causes of ovarian cancer. Some of them came from looking at the things that change the risk of ovarian cancer. For example, pregnancy and taking birth control pills both lower the risk of ovarian cancer. Since both of these things reduce the number of times the ovary releases an egg (ovulation), some researchers think that there may be some relationship between ovulation and the risk of developing ovarian cancer.

Also, we know that tubal ligation and hysterectomy lower the risk of ovarian cancer. One theory to explain this is that some cancer-causing substances may enter the body through the vagina and pass through the uterus and fallopian tubes to reach the ovaries. This would explain how removing the uterus or blocking the fallopian tubes affects ovarian cancer risk. Another theory is that male hormones (androgens) can cause ovarian cancer…”

Cellular Memory Healing: How to Clear Limiting Beliefs and Emotional Wounds at the Cellular Level BY DR. ALEXANDER LLOYD consciouslifestylemag.com
‘..So what exactly do we mean when we say “cellular memories”? Really, we are simply talking about your memories. Researchers began adding the word cellular because we used to believe that all memories were stored in the brain—until, over many years with lots of patients, surgeons removed every part of the brain and found the memories were always still there. The experiences of organ transplant recipients also support this idea. Now we know that memories are stored in cells all over the body, but they’re still just what we would call our “memories,” which is how I’ll refer to them throughout the rest of this. Also, out of the various terms writers and researchers have used for cellu­lar memory, I’ve come to prefer the term that King Solomon used, particularly since he was the earliest source I found for this concept: the issues of the heart. But to distinguish this concept from our cardiovas­cular heart, I call it the “spiritual heart.” So when I refer to the spiritual heart throughout the rest of the piece, you can just as easily substitute cellular memory or the subconscious or unconscious mind. I simply mean the place where our good and bad memories, the source of all our life issues and problems, reside…”

pt.2 Healing Codes -Another way to Heal the heart letusreason.org
‘..

Cellular memory is that scientists now believe that illnesses, such as cancer, occur when a bad cellular memory replaces a good one. Bad cellular memories can contribute to depression, addiction, and psychological trauma as well. Scientists are working to find out how cells develop these memories, and how they can be changed.

Many in the medical community feel that when we get sick, we need to address five core issues: negative emotions, negative thought patterns, conscious beliefs that are not what they should be, actions and behaviors, and the physiology of their body. But Loyd says these five issues are not the ailments themselves, but merely the symptoms of a deeper, underlying problem. He explains that what is really at the core of all illness is what he calls the issues of the heart, or your core spiritual issues.

Heal the cell memories, replace the bad ones with good ones, and pain and illness will disappear.

As King Solomon said 3000 years ago, “Guard your heart above everything else, for from it flows all of the issues of life.” Addressing matters of the heart, or spiritual beliefs, will allow you to heal your cellular memories. And once the memories have been changed, the cells themselves are able to be healed, and your hypothalamus turns off the stress signals to the body. This, in turn, allows your body to heal. (Cellular Memory and its Role in Healing by Jack Hugo on May 2, 2012)

So what he is saying is that cells go bad from experiences, stress; and his new method of healing can remove this damage.

“The healing code is not a religious thing it works like gravity, The Healing codes work because of physical laws of nature” It is not a religious process but a physical mechanical process. (Larry Napier- spiritual foundations of healing). If that is so, then why do they refer to it as a spiritual healing? Why do they use the Bible Scriptures to support it?..”

Iron and Pregnancy: Why You Need It, How Much, and How to Get It By Paige Fowler parents.com

Iron is a crucial mineral needed during pregnancy. Here’s why and how to get enough for you and your developing baby.
“..Why You Need Iron

First, some basics: Your body uses iron to make hemoglobin, a substance in red blood cells that transports oxygen throughout your body. During pregnancy, your body supplies blood and oxygen to your baby, so the demand for iron goes up to keep up with the increase in blood supply. In fact, you need about twice the amount of iron—27 mg per day—than you do when you’re not pregnant.

In addition to taking a supplement, upping how much iron you’re getting in your diet will also make a difference. Not all iron-containing foods are created equal, however. There are two types of iron: heme and non-heme. Non-heme iron is mostly found in beans, vegetables, dried fruits, eggs, whole grains, and iron-fortified products; heme iron comes from animal sources, such as red meat, fish, and poultry. “Your body absorbs heme iron best, so it’s a good idea to especially focus on those foods to help keep your levels up during pregnancy,” Blake says. She recommends downing two servings of red meat per week during pregnancy…”

Carbohydrates
*see Health: Alternatives to “processed” sugar for your “sweet tooth”? goodnewshealthandfitness.wordpress.com

“..What are Carbohydrates?

The basic structure of carbohydrates is a sugar molecule, and they are classified by how many sugar molecules they contain.

Simple carbs: Simple carbohydrates, usually referred to as sugars, are naturally present in fruit, milk and other unprocessed foods. Plant carbohydrates can be refined into table sugar and syrups, which are then added to foods such as sodas, desserts, sweetened yogurts and more. ..

Complex carbs: Complex carbohydrates are any that contain more than two sugar molecules. Short chains are called oligosaccharides. Chains of more than ten monosaccharides linked together are called polysaccharides. They may be hundreds and even thousands of glucose molecules long. The way glucose molecules link together makes them digestible (starch) or non-digestible (fiber). Polysaccharides include the following.

Starch is a series of long chains of bound glucose molecules. It’s the storage form of glucose for grains, tubers and legumes and is used during the plant’s growth and reproduction.
Fiber is also long chains of glucose molecules, but they are bound in a way we cannot digest.
Glycogen is the storage form of glucose in humans and other animals. It’s not a dietary source of carbohydrate because it is quickly broken down after an animal is slaughtered…”

Added Sugars: …Nearly 60% of added sugars come from soda, energy drinks, sports drinks, fruit drinks and grain-based desserts like cakes, cookies and brownies.[3] The problem with added sugars is that they do not come packaged with an abundance of nutrients like a piece of fruit and a glass of milk do. For this reason, many people call them empty calories.

…All of these factors complicate the usefulness of the GI. Additionally, many high-calorie, low-nutrient foods such as some candy bars and ice creams have desirable GI scores, while more nutritious foods like dates and baked potatoes have high scores. It’s important to recognize that the healthfulness of a food depends largely on its nutrient density, not its type of carbohydrate or its GI score.

Proponents of low-carbohydrate diets are incensed by the RDA and AMDR for carbohydrates. “Nutrition experts are trying to kill us,” they argue and claim that carbohydrates have made us overweight. However, research supports that diets of a wide range of macronutrient proportions facilitate a healthy weight, allow weight loss and prevent weight regain. The critical factor is reducing the calorie content of the diet long-term.[4][5]

Fiber Needs: If we shunned all carbohydrates or if we severely restricted them, we would not be able to meet our fiber needs or get ample phytochemicals, naturally occurring compounds that protect the plant from infection and us from chronic disease. The hues, aromas and flavors of the plant suggest that it contains phytochemicals. Scientists have learned of thousands of them with names like lycopene, lutein and indole-3-carbinol. Among other things, phytochemicals appear to stimulate the immune system, slow the rate at which cancer cells grow, and prevent damage to DNA.

“…

Depending on your plan, carbs might be restricted to 50 grams or less per day. Of course to make it more confusing, carbs are subcategorized into specific types of carbs. You have sugars and starches and they’re the net carbs. There are also fibers and a newly-concocted chemical called sugar alcohol.

“…Low Carbohydrate Diet

Low carb diets is that they are very low in calories, which is the basis behind weight loss with this program. Two very popular diets on the market today, the Atkins and the Zone diet, both use low calorie and low carb foods. This can be a good thing, as long as you keep your calorie intake to a minimum of 1300 per day for women and 1700 per day for men. You should also take a fiber supplement.

Another good thing about low carbohydrate diets is that they stick with small quantities of low glycemic carbs in combination with fat and protein…

The main danger with high-carb diets is not paying close attention to the kinds of carbohydrates you are consuming, which can easily result in weight gain.

It is a low-fat food and contains high levels of manganese and selenium, which are minerals important in maintaining bone health and immune function.

Whole Wheat Pasta and Fiber

One of the top reasons why whole wheat pasta is good for your is the fiber content. The USDA states, “Dietary fiber from whole grains or other foods may help reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Fiber is important for proper bowel function. It helps reduce constipation and diverticulosis. Fiber-containing foods such as whole grains help provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories.”..”

…The truth is, most Americans eat much more protein than their bodies require. And even if you choose to eat no meat at all, you can still meet your protein needs…

..Though protein provides your body with 4 kcals per gram, giving you energy is not its primary role. Rather, it’s got way too many other things going on. In fact, your body contains thousands of different proteins, each with a unique function. Their building blocks are nitrogen-containing molecules called amino acids. If your cells have all 20 amino acids available in ample amounts, you can make an infinite number of proteins. Nine of those 20 amino acids are essential, meaning you must get them in the diet…

Proteins in the Diet

…Proteins in the body are constantly broken down and re-synthesized. Our bodies reuse most of the released amino acids, but a small portion is lost and must be replaced in the diet. The requirement for protein reflects this lost amount of amino acids plus any increased needs from growth or illness. The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for protein for adults is 0.8 g/kg of body weight. Because of their rapid growth, infants have the highest RDA for protein at 1.5 g/kg of body weight. The RDA gradually decreases until adulthood. It increases again during pregnancy and lactation to a level of 1.1 g/kg. The RDA for an adult weighing 140 pounds (63.6 kg) is a mere 51 grams of protein, an amount many of us consume before mid-afternoon…

Helping them meet their nutritional needs may take a little creativity and perseverance….

A complete protein includes all of the essential amino acids. Complete proteins include all animal proteins and soy. Incomplete proteins lack one or more essential amino acids. Beans, nuts, grains and vegetables are incomplete proteins. Previously, registered dietitians and physicians advised vegetarians to combine foods that contained incomplete proteins at the same meal to give the body all the necessary amino acids it needed at one time. Today we know this is unnecessary. Your body combines complementary or incomplete proteins that are eaten in the same day.[10]…

FATS

“..Dietary fat has critical roles in the body. Each gram of fat, whether it’s from a spoon of peanut butter or a stick of butter, provides 9 kcals. This caloric density is a lifesaver when food is scarce and is important for anyone unable to consume large amounts of food. The elderly, the sick and others with very poor appetites benefit from high-fat foods. Because their tiny tummies can’t hold big volumes, small children too need fat to provide enough calories for growth…

Our bodies are amazing machines capable of producing most of the needed fatty acids. There are two fatty acids that it cannot make at all, however. They are called LA (linoleic acid) and ALA (alpha linolenic acid). This makes LA and ALA “essential”, meaning they must be obtained through the diet. In the body, fatty acids are important constituents of cell membranes, and they are converted to chemical regulators that affect inflammation, blood clotting, blood vessel dilation and more. Clinical deficiencies are rare. A deficiency of LA is usually seen in people with severe malabsorption problems. Its symptoms are poor growth in children, decreased immune function, and a dry, scaly rash. In the few cases of ALA deficiency that doctors and researchers are aware of, the symptoms were visual problems and nerve abnormalities…..

Essential Fatty Acids

The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids help prevent cardiovascular disease by lowering cholesterol. They’re essential for the proper functioning of your brain, nerves and cells throughout body. They also help regulate the inflammatory response. Two of the essential fatty acids must come from your diet; your body uses them to make three more. The essential omega-3 is alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA. You also need to consume the omega-6 called linoleic acid, or LA. Women need 1.1 grams of omega-3 and 12 grams of omega-6 daily. Men should get 1.6 grams of omega-3 and 17 grams of omega-6 daily.
….
Two of the omega-3 fatty acids — eicosapentaenoic acid, or EPA, and docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA — come from oily fish. Even though they can be synthesized from ALA, your body may not produce an adequate amount, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. The best sources include…

… salmon, sardines, mackerel, tuna and freshwater trout. The American Heart Association recommends eating oily fish twice weekly. If you don’t consume enough fish, you can take fish oil supplements. A recommendation for fish oil has not been established, but patients with coronary heart disease are advised to take 1 gram of combined EPA and DHA daily….

ALA, on the other hand, is found in some plant foods, including certain nuts and seeds, as well as high-quality cuts of meat like grass-fed beef…

Historically, we’ve seen that populations that consume the most omega-3 foods, like people in Okinawa, Japan, live longer and healthier lives than people who eat a standard diet low in omega-3s. The typical Okinawa diet — which consists of plenty of fish, sea vegetables and other fresh produce — is actually believed to have about eight times the amount of omega-3s that you’d find in the standard American diet, which is likely one reason why this population is considered one of the healthiest in human history…

Omega 3-6-9 Fatty Acids: What’s The Difference? By Jonathan Serfaty / 11.27.13 / Medically Reviewed .builtlean.com
‘..The Basics of Fatty Acids

Fatty acids (FA) have several roles in the body. In addition to being the primary component of stored fat, they also serve as important building blocks of cell membranes and regulate inflammatory processes.2

There are two main types of fatty acids: saturated and unsaturated. Saturated fats, which are solid at room temperature, you’ll find in animals and tropical plants. Unsaturated fats, which are usually liquid at room temperature, you’ll find in vegetables, seeds, and fatty fish.

Unsaturated fats are classified as either polyunsaturated fats (PUFA), which mainly include omega-3 omega-6 fatty acids, or monounsaturated fats (MUFA), which include omega-9 fatty acids…”

Trans Fats.

‘…Many experts consider trans fats even worse than saturated fats because, like saturated fats, they contribute to insulin resistance[14] and raise LDL cholesterol, but there’s more bad news. They also lower HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol).[15] The American Heart Association recommends that we keep our trans fatty acid intake to less than 1% of total calories (less than 2 grams if consuming 1600 calories daily). Achieving this might be trickier than you realize because many foods touting No Trans Fats on their labels actually contain traces of these artery-scarring fats. That’s because the law allows manufacturers’ to claim zero trans fats as long as a single serving contains no more than 0.49 grams. If you eat a few servings of foods with smidgens of trans fat like margarine crackers and baked goods, you can easily exceed the recommended limit…

Unsaturated Fats. As discussed, unsaturated fatty acids improve blood cholesterol levels and insulin sensitivity when they replace saturated and trans fats. There are two classes of unsaturated fatty acids: monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats.

Monounsaturated fat souces include avocados, nuts, seeds and olives. Peanut, canola and olive oils are additional sources.

There are several types of polyunsaturated fats, and they each have different roles in the body.

Omega-3 fatty acids have been in the spotlight recently because of their role in heart disease prevention. ALA is an omega-3 fatty acid, and you can find it in walnuts, ground flaxseed, tofu and soybeans, as well as common cooking oils like canola, soybean and walnut oils. Remember that your body is unable to create ALA, so it’s essential to get it in the diet. From ALA, your body makes two other critically important omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), but the conversion is very inefficient. It’s better to get EPA and DHA from fish. Not only are EPA and DHA important to the heart, but they also promote visual acuity and brain development in the fetus, infant and child; they seem to slow the rate of cognitive decline in the elderly; and they may decrease the symptoms associated with arthritis, ulcerative colitis and other inflammatory diseases. You will find them in bluefish, herring, lake trout, mackerel, salmon, sardines, and tuna.
Omega-6 fatty acids are a second type of polyunsaturated fats. LA is an omega-6 fatty acid and has to be acquired through the diet. Sources of omega-6 fatty acids are sunflower seeds, Brazil nuts, pecans and pine nuts. Some cooking oils are good sources too, such as corn, sunflower, safflower and sesame oils.[16]

Health & Fitness: How to increase Estrogen Levels and Keep it Balance?

12 Tips to Balance Estrogen Levels Naturally In Hormone Balance, Medications, Weight Loss | by Dr. Jockers | Comments are closed | Affiliate Disclosure drjockers.com
“Dangers Behind Hormone Replacement:

When hormones such as thyroid, estrogen, & progesterone are supplemented through prescriptions, creams, & contraceptives such as birth control pills, they are abnormally flooding their body with an unnatural amount of hormones (2, 3). This causes several responses within the body:..

12 Tips to Balance Your Hormones:

..3. Anti-Inflammatory Diet: Keep grains, sugars, bad fats and commercialized meat out of your diet. Load up on non-starchy veggies, low-glycemic fruit (lemons/limes, grapefruit, berries, granny smith apples), organic meat, good fats (coconut, grass-fed butter/ghee, olives, olive oil and avocados). Use herbs in abundance and fermented foods and tonics like apple cider vinegar

4. Practice Intermittent Fasting: Doing a liquid fast for 16-24 hrs daily or even just a few days a week can be an incredible practice to improve detoxification pathways. I personally enjoy doing 16-18 hour fasts daily where I eat my meals between a 6-8 hour eating window (12-7pm for example)….”
How to Boost Estrogen Levels by JAIME HERNDON Last Updated: Aug 14, 2017 livestrong.com
“..Estrogen is a naturally occurring female hormone that helps regulate the menstrual cycle and is important in the typical sexual development of females, says the Mayo Clinic. The body makes varying amounts of estrogen throughout the lifespan, with levels dropping off after menopause. There may be other reasons for a reduction in estrogen, like a medical condition or extreme weight loss. Raising estrogen levels can be done in a variety of ways, but it must be done under a doctor’s care, as too much estrogen can have negative health effects…”

16 Signs Your Estrogen Is Low — And What You Can Do About It bustle.com
“..For some people, having low estrogen is genetic. Other people end up with low levels of this hormone because they have a thyroid disorder, ovarian cysts, or because they’ve undergone chemo or radiation. If you have very low body fat (due to too much exercise or not eating enough), you might also be causing your body to have low estrogen. If your weight was really low when you were going through puberty (for instance, if you were a gymnast or you were struggling with an eating disorder), that may have caused delays in development of your secondary sex characteristics.

Having low estrogen means that your levels of this hormone are low compared to the other hormones in your system. Estrogen levels vary widely from person to person, so it’s more important to know how the levels of this hormone changes in your body over time, as opposed to the actual measurable amount. Your estrogen levels decline naturally as you get closer to menopause, so many of the signs of low estrogen are what you’ve heard of as menopause symptoms — but low estrogen can actually cause a lot of other changes. It’s important to note that these symptoms can vary from person to person, and some of them are dependent on how low your estrogen actually dips…”

Foods

10 foods that increase estrogen levels naturally By: Emily Lunardo | Women’s Health | Tuesday, April 11, 2017 – 02:00 PM .belmarrahealth.com
‘…If you happen to be experiencing symptoms of low estrogen, there are several estrogen-rich foods that may help boost your estrogen level. These foods contain phytoestrogen, which is a plant-based estrogen that mimics estrogen once it is processed by the body. The following is a list of foods that are known for containing excessive amounts of phytoestrogens. It is important to keep in mind that estrogen rich foods may have unwanted effects in men.

Soybean products: Soy is a rich source of phytoestrogen and comes in a variety of easy to consume forms like soy milk, tofu, or edamame. Soy products are the greatest source of isoflavones, a class of phytoestrogen that can be easily consumed in your diet. Soy is also a great source of protein, making it an ideal meat substitute for vegans and vegetarians.

Flaxseeds: These little seeds contain up to three times the phytoestrogens of soybeans, but your body will not reap their benefits unless they are cracked or ground prior to consumption. Also high in fiber, flaxseeds will make you feel full and may aid in weight loss and in the reduction of cholesterol.

Sesame seeds: Whole seeds—or even sesame oil—contain lignans (a chemical compound found in plants) that possess phytoestrogens. The seeds are also loaded with fiber and are a great source of minerals.

Beans: They are relativity high in phytoestrogens, but they don’t get much attention. Beans are known for having a high fiber content, which helps to control cholesterol levels. Types of beans include peas, pinto bean, and lima beans

Dried Fruit: Not only are they a healthy snack, but they also contain a modest amount of phytoestrogens. It is advised to limit how much you eat, as dried fruit does contain a lot of calories. Apricots, dates, and prunes are good sources.

Bran: Wheat bran is a reliable way get your dose of phytoestrogens. It can be found in muffins, bread, and cereals.

Nuts: Several types of nuts, including pistachios, chestnuts, hazelnuts, and walnuts, are great sources of phytoestrogens.

Alfalfa Sprouts: Naturally low in calories and carbohydrates, alfalfa sprouts are an excellent choice.

Chickpeas: A reliable source of phytoestrogens that are also high in fiber and protein.

Olives and olive oil: Having a bevy of healthy effects for your hair, skin, nail, and heart, they are also great for your hormone levels…”
