Anxiety and how it affects Hair thinning

Anxiety is often talked about as a mental health issue, however there is very little information out there that says how it affects your body – this includes not only your hair, but also your organs and endocrine system as well as the nervous system.

If you imagine someone at constant anxiety, their heart rate alone would increase due to their fear, and for that to happen, adrenal glands will have to be firing away at full throttle – this over long term, will deplete kidneys and cause aging at a faster rate – this means white hair, as well as hair thinning.

After the hormonal system is affected, it takes some time for it to become an adopted by the body – as a natural state of being – so this no longer remains just a mental issue, as now the body is geared towards staying in this state – so even if the person is simply sitting down with nothing to be anxious about, their body will still be in a state of anxiety, and they will still feel anxiety as a natural state of being – this is when we say the pattern has become an adopted pattern, and changing this requires a lot of effort as you will have to do things that feel unnatural and not normal for your body type until it becomes the new adopted pattern of your body.

When the hormones are affected from anxiety, this also then affects hair and skin quality directly – nutrient absorption can also be affected, which means it further affects skin and hair as this is first to go, if nutrients are low.

 

Protein Diet – The Do’s and Dont’s

There is a lot of misinformation about the protein diet out there – so this article was written to clarify what the diet is, what the benefits of a protein diet are, medically and cosmetically; as well as how to use the protein diet for your health.

The protein diet is so simple, that people end up getting confused if that is what the protein diet is – it literally is eating only lean fat free lean meats with beef at the top priority, combined with any leafy green (spinach, kale and so on).

Okay, let me do this again – for clarity’s sake.

What is the Protein Diet?

It consists of the following foods to be eaten (nothing else):

  • Beef (fat free as possible) – This is a must, and should not be omitted from the diet, as the diet will fail otherwise.
  • Lamb (fat free parts only)
  • Chicken (no skin part)
  • White Fish
  • Combined with all types of leafy greens (not fruits, not other vegetables)
  • Garlic and light amount of salt is okay for marinating

What does the Protein Diet help with?

The protein diet helps with a huge range of conditions such as the following below, but not limited to it:

  • Hormone Imbalance (men and women)
  • Sugar Addiction
  • Insulin and Diabetes
  • Hair Growth
  • Skin Disorders
  • Menstrual cycle problems
  • Heart Valve Issues
  • Nutritional Absorption Issues
  • Cosmetic Improvement (Looking younger)

Rules of the Protein Diet

The protein diet is a tough diet to be on – and if you have any kind of sugar addiction, it will get rid of it within 7 days of being on the diet.

The diet should be followed for as long as you have the condition you are working to resolve – as this will help at a cellular level and provide the building blocks needed for recovery.

In today’s time of junk food and various ingredients used in processed foods, we have way too many foods with hidden ingredients which could be affecting our health – this diet is one way to really detox from it – it isn’t for the faint hearted.

Is the Protein diet the same or similar to the Paleo Diet?

This is often something that people ask about – and yes, whilst it is similar, it has a different purpose to the Paleo diet – the protein diet is meant to be set for a certain amount of time, and then you should be able to go back to your eating various  kinds of foods, even sugar to a small extent – the Protein diet is a medical diet, not a lifestyle like the Paleo diet.

 

Food for Younger Skin – Age Reversal (A Study)

food for younger skin

 

It is well known how food and diet can have a direct effect on how your skin looks and feels – not only that, but how youthful you look overall.

It is possible to maintain and have youthful looks even at a old age – but you need to have dedication and discipline to do so, and it will also reward you with good health too.

If you haven’t been following our blog posts in the past few years, then you should know we have talked about calorie restriction as a method of controlling the aging process.  In Eastern medicine, it is called dampness control, which means you control the rich foods you eat, such as cakes, chocolates and very densely sugary foods.

People often look for food for younger skin, or foods that will help maintain their skin youthfulness – but this is not as simple to explain – you first must watch your calories as a lifestyle – doing too much restriction will also cause aging, as you do need nutrition in your body (obviously) – but you need good quality dense nutrients rather than empty calorie noodles.

In Eastern Medicine, we know that dampness (eating too much) is a major cause of the speed of aging most people in the modern age go through – so the first step in reducing the aging process is reducing calories and increasing nutrient density.

The second step is looking for foods that will work for reducing dampness – and this is very misunderstood in Chinese Medicine, as not all herbs can do this and you cannot just Google what foods do this – we are fortunate enough to have spoken and interviewed a Daoist Medical Doctor, which happen to knew all too well on the best food you can take to reduce and stop dampness.

 

Looking younger by 10 Years with just 2 Methods

 

Peach Seed: This is one of the few and rarely understood herbs in the Chinese herbal book which few understand. Of course it isn’t a herb, but a seed – but in Chinese herbology, a lot of weird things are inside the herbal books, which are parts of animals, and end up being referred to as herbs.

peach seed and youthful looks

Peach seed can be purchased anywhere online – and it is the inside part (inside the hard shell) that is what you want – it is very bitter to taste, so you would want to take water with it and swallow a teaspoon 2-3 times a day after a meal – this will not only help bowel movement, but also detox the body, prevent cancer, break down cysts, but also give you that beautiful youthful appearance that you are looking for.

Taking a food such as peach seed is not enough – you also need to take care of your body by movement – exercise – on a daily basis – the body is simply not designed to stay still for longer than 20 minutes at a time – yes, those people working those long office jobs, you are aging yourself faster than you need to – but by working out everyday, even a little, can do wonders for your health, as well as your skin and youthful looks.

 

 

Recover from Exhaustion in just one meal

recover from exhuastion foods

 

The fastest way to restore your tiredness using food, is by the legendary (but not so commonly known) as the chicken ginseng and astragalus soup – there are many versions of it, but this specific version is the one that is known for restoring your vitality (you basically feel great after eating), especially if you have been overworking and haven’t been eating the healthiest of foods (nutritionally dense foods) – the coolest thing about it is, its very easy to cook – hard to go wrong in this.

It is a Korean food – so going to this recipe will help you make it in the best way possible – but you need to add one ingredient to make this work more effectively (which the recipe does not talk about) – and it is called Huang Qi, and can be found in asian stores all over the world (and it’s cheap) – more details about this herb located here.

The important ingredients are ginseng (can be in dry form), Jujube berry (2 of them per baby chicken), Huang Qi and the fact that in needs a very low heat, for a long time – you cook it for several hours, even the chicken bone is soft enough to eat!

Obviously there are many types of food out there that can help someone recover from exhaustion – the reason I post about this specific one, as this is as much a medicine as it is a food, and from my experience, it is one of the best foods you can regularly eat.
