How to be a hottie

Just like how modern society handles it’s health problems, by covering up the symptoms; the fashion and make-up industry head towards covering up the apparent “flaws” the human body seems to have – in both cases, fighting a losing battle.

“…if a baby cries for food, would you tape over it’s mouth, just so it stops crying?….”

It remains a mystery why this approach is still in existence; if a baby cries for food, would you tape over its mouth, just so it stops crying? this is exactly what you are doing when you put make-up over your face because of bad skin, or take an aspirin to cover up a headache.

If the above paragraph sounds like you, then you need to consider changing your approach; this means tackling the issue from its source and not covering up the symptoms (be it powder for bad skin, or pharmaceutical drugs for depression).

Scientists already know, attractiveness in a human is measured by the individual’s level of health; using this, we can safely say, that raising one’s health to optimal levels, is the best way to become “a hottie” (hehe).

Look at yourself as a trinity of mind, body and spirit – you cannot simply focus on your body (eating right + exercise) and have a cloudy mind with unstable thoughts (mind, body & spirit) and emotions; or have no alone time for reflection on your goals (mind, body & spirit) and intentions.

For Example: Let’s say that you eat right and exercise 2-3 times a week, which in turn affects your mental clarity to some extent because of the mind-body-spirit connection; despite that, you lose your temper several times a week – this will damage your physical body (very angry = increased heart rate = high blood pressure = organ damage) which counteracts your goal of health (and being a hottie); after all, if the body (eating right, and exercise) can inflict changes to the mind (such as mental clarity), the mind can also inflict changes in the body.

An example of an aligned plan for reaching optimal health could be – exercising and eating correctly (body) whilst meditating (spirit) to stabilize your thoughts and emotions; and learning (mind) from your experiences as well as others, about health then deciding to focus on a specific routine.

As you can see, reaching optimal health is just as much a science, as it is an art. This is why it is important to combine latest scientific research with ancient health practices to guide you towards a vibrant mind, body and spirit.

 

 

3 Reasons to Stop Wearing Prescription Glasses and Contact Lenses

 

Reason 1: Prescription glasses do NOT solve the problem; if you were bleeding heavily, you will not take a morphine injection so you don’t feel pain, ignoring the bleeding altogether! This is the same with prescription glasses – they only stop you from seeing the warning signs, ie your eye muscles are weakening, do something about them!

Reason 2: Prescription glasses increase the near point stress that is associated with progression (Optometric Extension Program Foundation, May 1984); this leads to a steady decrease of vision.

Reason 3: When you look into the long distance, the muscles in your eyes pull tighter; and when you look at things up close, the eye muscles relax. Wearing glasses or contact lenses all the time will simply relax your eyes permanently. Your eye muscles don’t have to work (think what happens to your legs if your admitted to hospital and do not walk for 3 months).

Vitamins and Supplements will kill you – are you really taking the vitamin/supplement that you think you are?

It is vital to distinguish between synthetic vitamins and naturally occurring vitamins. Synthetic vitamins are extracted from non-food sources; for example, many types of B vitamins are extracted from petroleum chemicals; they will not only damage your kidneys, but also deprive your body of other nutrients and minerals before being extracted out of the body (as urine).

 

“…Many types of B Vitamins are extracted from petroleum chemicals…”

 

It is important to also understand that natural vitamins do not consist of just one component; they actually consist of multiple components (enzymes, co-enzymes) that work together to give the positive benefits we know of today.

For example, most vitamin C supplements contain ascorbic acid or a compound called ascorbatethis is NOT vitamin C. It only represents the outer ring that acts as a protective shell for the whole mixture of components –Real vitamin C consists of Rutin, Bioflavonoids, Tyrosinase, Ascorbic acid, Factors K, J and P.

If you take a “Vitamin C” supplement with only Ascorbic acid in it – your body has to work to find the rest of the ingredients before it can enjoy the antioxidant benefits real vitamin C has – this is draining for the body, on top of that, the kidneys have to remove Ascorbic acid, as it is not used by the body – this is taxing on the kidneys.

No wonder when researchers (hired by pharmaceutical companies) want to discredit vitamins; they almost ALWAYS carry out studies using synthetic vitamins – not REAL vitamins! This also explains why superfoods, herbs etc give the greatest nutritional healing; as they are not individual extracts of single plant molecules.

Lower your Cholesterol Naturally – A List of foods

It is vital to understand why cholesterol can be dangerous before looking at a list of foods that lower it – after all, wouldn’t you rather know HOW we know which foods help lower cholesterol, than just a long list of ingredients?

High cholesterol is not dangerous by itself – only in a specific condition it becomes harmful; by understanding this, you can get to the root of the issue – and resolve it.

The condition is when free radicals come in contact with LDL cholesterol – causing the LDL cholesterol to oxidize.  Free radicals are unstable atoms – which bond with any nearby cell’s atom – causing the cell it bonded with, to become a free radical itself – making this a chain reaction.

When LDL cholesterol is oxidized, it stimulates white blood cells which capture any foreign cells and particles in the blood – this causes foam cells to form – which are designed to clean out the area; a toxic effect is then created causing inflammation and clotting processes to activate within the artery walls – hence slowly increasing blood pressure (because of plague built up in the arteries) and reducing blood circulation (which can cause stroke or heart attack).

So, how do you lower cholesterol with just a list of foods?

The key is to stop free radical damage in the body – to disarm free radicals, you need antioxidants; not just any antioxidant – it must be FAT SOLUABLE. Taking a 1000mg of vitamin C (an antioxidant) will not help your cholesterol because Vitamin C is a water soluble antioxidant, not a fat soluble one which can stabilize oxidized cells (cells are made from lipids, which are fats).

The fat soluble antioxidants are as follows; along with the list of foods that have the highest concentrations of each:

–  Astaxanthin (pink stuff found in Salmon – better taken in supplement form)

–  Zeaxanthin(found in Kale, Chard, Spinach – best in raw form)

–  Vitamin E(Asparagus, Avocado, Egg, Milk, Nuts, Spinach, Olive oil)

–  Beta-Carotene(Peppers, Lettuce, Kale, Spinach)

–  Coenzyme Q10(Red meats – liver, heart – cooking them too much can reduce the amount)

– Vitamin B6 – Niacin is a water soluable vitamin, but thanks to its flushing side effect, it is one of the most powerful supplements that can be taken to instantly lower cholesterol.

Is a list of foods really enough to lower cholesterol and improve your health dramatically? What about the damage already caused?

Taking antioxidant rich foods is powerful if you completely transform your diet and increase your intake of the above foods. However, to tackle this issue with full force you MUST do other things – like taking a food supplement.

Adding an antioxidant supplement to your diet will allow you to eat more concentrations of the antioxidants you need to actually reverse the damage already caused – yes, your body is powerful, and eating the right foods will get you a long way, but it may not be enough to reverse the damage already caused by free radicals – for that, you need an exercise program where you exercise 3-4 times a week; and at least for 30 minutes constantly where you are out of breath – what this does is push the blood to your extremities and increase general circulation, allowing faster and more than usual detox of the body, including plague build up.

One must understand that combining exercise with proper super-antioxidant supplementation is important to get the necessary benefits.
