Natural remedies for menopause symptoms — meaning those that don’t involve taking hormone replacement therapy drugs — are safe and can be helpful during this transition phase to decrease symptom severity and duration.

Top foods causing hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms
1) Processed Sugar – Yeast and candida overgrowth in the gut which causes inflammation
2) Processed Soy – Contain estrogens
3) Conventional Meats – Packed with hormones, steroids and antibiotics that affect your hormones causing low sex drive and low energy
4) Packaged Foods – Contain hydrogenated oils and refined flours
5) Artificial Sweeteners – Sucralose, Aspartame and Splenda
6) Gluten – Cause inflammation of gut lining and can lead to autoimmune disease

Top foods to help balance hormones and get rid of menopause symptoms
1) Healthy fats – avocado (high in potassium, magnesium and omega-9 fats)

2) Omega 3 fatty acid – wild-caught salmon and wild-caught fish
3) Grass-Fed beef – full of iron
4) Berries – High in Antioxidants
5) Flaxseeds and Flax Meal – sprouted or chia or hemp (add to a morning smoothie)
6) Coconut Products – balance blood sugar
7) Cruciferous vegetables – broccoli, cabbage, turnips, kale – help to remove phytoestrogens to detox

Supplements for menopause
1) Black Cohosh – http://draxe.com/black-cohosh/
2) Vitex – balance many hormones in body and help female organs
3) Adaptogen Herbs – ginseng, ashwagandha, holy basil
4) Omega-3 – Reduce inflammation
5) Collagen Protein Powder
6) Probiotics – Help digestion – 95% of serotonin is produced in gut
7) Essential Oils – Clary Sage and Thyme – balance hormones
• Ylang Ylang, orange, sandalwood (balance mood)

Lifestyle
1) Reduce stress
2) Detox Bath (epsom salts with essential oils)
3) Go on walks throughout the day
4) Give yourself some free time

10 Tips on Staying Fit Through Menopause – What to Expect & How to Cope.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4iCx5lKpLI
“..Menopause is defined as having no menstrual periods for a year and causes various changes to your body due to reduced production of estrogen and progesterone in your ovaries. The average woman goes through menopause somewhere between the ages of 48-55, but start preparing early since all that you do now can impact how intense the symptoms are and how your body is affected. Outplay and outlast the next chapter of your life by following these 10 quick tips! 1: Focus on your nutrition to help your body keep hormones balanced. Cholesterol is known to spike during the years surrounding your ever approaching menopause therefore eat right by consistently including vegetables and fruit in your diet and ward off recipes and foods high in sodium. 2: Recent studies found that middle aged women who engaged in aerobic exercises four times per week for six months experienced fewer mood swings, reduced night sweats and less irritability compared with those who didn’t. Exercise can be utilized as a relaxation technique during this frazzled time since it’s known to reduce stress chemicals like cortisol and adrenaline. 3: Menopause can be a great stress but it really doesn’t have to be. Find new hobbies, tap into meditation exercises and discover new joys this new phase has to offer. Like…finally not having any more periods?..”

Starting Out

9 Weight Training Tips | Female Bodybuilding

This Is How Many Reps You Should Be Doing If You’re Looking to Get Lean Author picture of Tamara Pridgett March 26, 2018 by Tamara Pridgett
“..Mitchell advises splitting your workouts up into heavy, medium, and light days. Her reasoning — “Muscle confusion is everything. The body never hits a plateau when we constantly switch up the weight and rep schemes.” Here’s a sample of what your programming should look like:

Heavy weight day: Do three sets, decreasing the amount of reps in each set. Start with 10 reps, decrease to eight reps in your second set, and your final set should be only six reps. Be sure to take one and a half to two minutes rest in between each set.
Medium weight day: Do three sets of 12 reps, taking 45 seconds to one minute of rest between sets.
Light weight day: Do three sets of 15 reps with 45 seconds to one minute of rest in between each set.

Conventional & Sumo

Deadlifts are great, not only because they are a total body movement, but they also are incredibly effective for building the glutes and hamstrings, due to the ability to use very heavy loads.

QUAD Dominant
“…
If you’re feeling your glutes exercises in your legs, you might be quad-dominant—and tight hips may be to blame.

How does quad dominance occur? It’s not something you’re born with—it’s something you develop over time. The process of becoming quad-dominant usually starts with tight hips…

Plus, weak glutes and hamstrings can cause a host of issues in their own right. Weak glutes can lead to overuse of the low back, which isn’t designed to take on that much load, says McCall. If you pick up your suitcase with your back muscles instead of your glutes, for example, you’re setting yourself up for aches and pains, McCall says…

..Here are seven things to help balance out the work and get your glutes and hammies involved the way they should be…

Is Your Squat “Quad Dominant” Or “Hip Dominant?” Posted on August 8, 2017 by Dr. Aaron Horschig squatuniversity.com
“..Imagine now someone tied a rope around the same 10 lb. dumbbell and attached it to your elbow. It would now be much easier to hold your arm in front of you. This is because the length of the lever arm decreased, which meant there was less force (torque) required by the shoulder to keep the arm extended. Make sense?

But how does this relate to the squat?

If we take a snapshot of a squat at its parallel position, we can calculate the amount of torque that is generated at each joint complex (hips, knees and low back). Like we mentioned earlier, gravity always pulls straight down and during the squat it is often represented as a vertical line drawn through the middle of the barbell. This vertical line then runs through the body and divides the thigh…”

How to Gain Weight Naturally if You’re Skinny | Build Muscle For Skinny Guys – Weight Gain Tips Men

How to Gain Weight : The three ingredients to go from skinny to muscular are nutrition, training and consistency. Here are the most important tips to gain weight for skinny hardgainers and ectomorphs… Eat More. Eat more calories than your body burns. How much depends on your metabolism and activity levels. But if you’re not gaining weight, you’re not eating enough. Eat More Meals. Small meals are easier to eat than big ones. They don’t make you feel stuffed. Wake up earlier, eat breakfast, and then eat 3-4 more meals a day. Eat Caloric Dense Foods. Food high in carbs and/or fats has more calories per serving. It takes less eating to create a caloric surplus. Bulk on pasta, dried fruits, nuts, etc. Eat More Protein. Your muscles need protein to recover from your workouts and grow bigger. Eat a whole source of protein with each meal – meat, chicken, fish, eggs, etc Go Liquid. Blended food digests more easily than solid food. Make weight gainer shakes by mixing oats, milk, banana, peanut butter and whey protein in your blender. Track Calories. Skinny guys over-estimate how much they eat. They think they eat a lot but they don’t. Track your calorie intake to make sure you’re eating enough to gain weight. Lift Heavy. Stop wasting time with curls and flies. Do free weight, compounds like Squats and Deadlifts instead. They trigger more strength and muscle gains to gain weight. Be Consistent. If you eat a lot today but little the rest of the week, you won’t gain weight. You must consistently eat more than you burn to increase your body-weight. Weight Goals for Men How much weight do you have to gain to stop looking skinny? A simple rule is to take your height in centimeter, substract 100, and that’s your goal weight in kg. Anything less you’ll always look skinny. Here’s a table with minimum goal weights for skinny guys, and maximum muscular weights.

Sal: 3-I take various whey protein powder supplements after each workout. In fact, I try to change the brand each time I finish one container to bring that variety and so my muscles won’t be so used to the “same” one. I take the powder (5 mg) mix with goat milk powder in a container to shake it ONLY after my leg workouts. I get my protein sources from other areas (e.g. greek yogurt , protein bar (variety depending on what’s on sale), etc..) as post-workout snack within 30 minutes. During this time, I can try to make my meal (depending on the day and time I workout). For example, during supper-I would cook chicken (no hormones), turkey, salmon, or tuna.

Sal: In regarding the health area, I take various vitamins throughout the day..

AM-Vitamin C
Noon-Vitamin D with Magnesium
Evening-Fish Oil

I try other various vitamins- supplements throughout the week.

The 18 Best Healthy Foods to Gain Weight Fast healthline.com
“..Here are 18 of the best foods to help you gain weight or add muscle, the healthy way.

..2. Milk

Milk has been used as a weight gainer or muscle builder for decades (1).

It provides a good balance of proteins, carbs and fats and is a good source of calcium, as well as other vitamins and minerals (2).

For those trying to add more muscle, milk is an excellent protein source that provides both casein and whey proteins. Research has even shown it can help you add muscle when combined with weight lifting (3, 4).

Additionally, studies have found that milk, or whey and casein combined, can lead to greater mass gain than other protein sources (4, 5).

Try drinking around one or two glasses as a snack, with a meal, or before and after a workout if you are training…

6. Potatoes and Starches

Potatoes and other starchy foods are a very easy and cost-effective way to add in extra calories.

Try to choose one of these healthy sources of starchy carbs:

Quinoa
Oats
Corn
Buckwheat
Potatoes and sweet potatoes…

Sal: I fry these in olive oil almost after every upper body workkouts! It’s a great pre-snack while making /cooking supper!

” Squash
Winter root vegetables
Beans and legumes…

7. Salmon and Oily Fish

Like red meat, salmon and oily fish are excellent sources of protein and important healthy fats…

8. Protein Supplements

Taking protein supplements is a common strategy for athletes and bodybuilders who want to gain weight.

Whey protein supplements and mass gainers can be a very easy and cost-effective strategy to gain weight, especially when combined with strength training (18, 19).

Some people think whey protein is unhealthy or unnatural, but this isn’t the case. Whey protein is made from dairy and has been shown to improve markers of health and reduce disease risk (20, 21, 22).

It may be even more important if you’re also training since your daily protein requirements increase..

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…”

She and her husband also took a closer look at the sources of the meat they ate. “We decided that it was more important to buy hormone-free, antibiotic-free meat products, which we’ll have once or twice a week,” she says. “We’ve also shifted to more of a plant-based diet to keep our budget more manageable and because it’s healthier in general.”..”

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.

To support our channel and level up your health, check out:
Our Fast Weight Loss Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/the-science…
Our Better Health Basics Course: http://thehealthnerds.com/food-health…

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.

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.

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….

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…”
