Vegan Vs Meat Eaters – Is there really a right way to eat?

vegainvsmeat

Vegans have started showing up more and more in numbers – it almost seems that people have found a new religion to use as an excuse for an argument or protest – what is the truth behind all this?

Vegan diet is considered a more conscious diet as you eat non-animal products and are meant to be more conscious of the environment and the animals around you – whilst vegan-ism stems from some geniune intention to make the world, and our body a better place to be in – there are some areas you must consider:

– Vegans say that they don’t hurt living things and that is the main reason (at least the few I spoke to) for their diet. This is simply not possible to do if you are alive, you will naturally be hurting and killing life around – even when you take a deep breath, you have just killed billions of life forms in the air.

– New studies have shown plants do have nervous systems, and they can feel pain. So if your a vegan based on the reason you don’t want to hurt living things, then this is heavily flawed.

That said – vegan and a vegerterian diet can be very healthy for some people, and often mind clearing too – but this is not to say meat eating is harmful – in fact, beef protein is the only protein that is most biolavailable to the body, and ideal for recovery and rebuilding strenght (Romans knew this, this is why all gladiators were fed pure beef diet, whilst the rest of Rome was almost vegeterian).

This post is not intended to take sides on vegans or meat eaters – the point to make is that each individual body type is different, and reason for the diet should be more than just saving life of nature (whilstit is important to be conscious of what you are doing), because you simply can’t do that with a diet alone.

There are anemic patients that I have seen, who badly need to eat beef, and it would save their life – but they try to get their protein from beans and think this is the same (and they never recover!) – all they need is 1-6 months protein diet on beef protein, and this restores their blood count very fast.

There are some people who have eaten a lot of deep fried junk in their lifes, and are more than healthy in blood count levels – they could do with a vegeterian diet – as this diet will clear their mind, prevent foggy thinking, make them more energetic and less aggressive and even detox their system from a lot of junk – this does not mean its a permanent lifestyle – life is constantly changing, and so are your body’s nutritional requirements – there is no right way – both are right depending on the time and place.

 

Food for Hair Growth – Top 3 Vital Foods for Hair Growth

food for hair growthThere is a whole thing argument about what foods are best for hair growth in men and women – one side talks about certain foods being better, and the vegetarian food eaters talk about the other side.

Unfortunately if you are a vegetarian and are trying to improve hair growth – it will be very difficult to do so, as we require actual animal protein to benefit from increased absorption.

We don’t take sides on what type of diet is best for a human – as this varies by requirements and their end goal – so this we leave to you – but as far as diet for best foods for hair growth, you will definitely have to eat meat, and yes, lean red meat is on the top of the list as follows:

1. Lean Red Meat: This is often misunderstood, but you must be eating enough of this type of meat, ideally from beef, to benefits from increased protein absorption. No, beans do not do the same thing – it is not just the nutrient you want, it is also the energy of that nutrient and how easy it is for the body to make use of it (bioavailability).

2. Biotin: This is already a well known supplement to take for helping with hair growth, but this alone will not do much if you don’t take other foods that have biotin present in it, or at least eat it with a food like red lean meat.

3. Collagen: Whilst this too is not an actual food, but a supplement, it still is vital for hair growth. This can be purchased online from amazon, and is very cheap for the amount you get. The idea is to eat collagen to then break it down in the down, and have the right amino acids in the right ratios, to allow the body to make its own collagen. So the collagen you end up taking is not the same collagen, but supplementing from it, has been found, without doubt, to improve skin and hair at a very fast rate (alarmingly fast!).

Bonus: If you actually start to do scalp massage on a daily basis, this will boost your hair growth to phenomenal rates. Especially when done at a daily rate – see this article for more information on other ways to naturally thicken hair. It explains the other things you can do to help hair growth, thicker or increasing the speed at which the hair grows.

 

Hair Follicles: Can they Regrow?

hair follcile regrowthThere are a bunch of studies done on hair follicles, and it is already understood that hair follicles do not actually die the way we used to think they do – but the problem is the fact that they stay dormant, and this can be genetically pre-programmed, although there are some ways to handle it.

Stopping the further fall of hair is easier than regrowing; although if you aren’t fully bald, then even regrowing some amount of hair is possible (some percentage of it at least – from studies conducted).

Science has figured out ways on how to regrow – but they are still developing a possible cure to baldness once and for all – and if you can hold onto the amount of hair you already have, by doing various methods (such as the ones listed on this article here), at least until the actual cure is released.

I know, staying youthful is hard work, and you have to constantly work hard towards it – but also without anxiety and worry (as those too are one of the biggest enemies to hair loss).

One most important thing discussed in the article link given above, is scalp massage; this is a key in keeping the hair you already have, and possibly re-growing more hair.

There are many methods – the point is to build a regime, and do what you can to stay healthy, including plenty of exercise and emotional stabilizing exercised (such as meditation) – if you look at people who meditate more often, are often in a more relaxed daily state, and also look years younger; this is no accident – it is a side effect of meditation (because meditation is done for larger purposes than just youthful looks, obviously).

So if you are looking for a sure-way to keep hair; then the least you should do is scalp massage on a daily basis.

 

Healing with Food: Bone Broth

bone soup reciepe

There are only a few foods that have stood the test of time for their properties for healing and renewing the body – As you already know, I have talked about the power of bone soup in my previous article “Health Reset Button – Bone Soup“.

So if you haven’t read the previous post, please do read it, as it covers some basics on bone soup. For benefits of bone soup, there are countless, from beauty to faster recovery time when sick; it also renews your stomach and helps heal ulcers in the stomach. There are endless benefits, and on top of that, it actually tastes very yummy!

Since my last post, many of you have asked me for more details on the recipe (which is vital, if you want the legendary healing of the food, and not just as a food to eat) and although I gave a general idea on its basics and what you really need, I want to introduce you to the most powerful recipe book you can own, and it’s called Bone Deep Broth: Healing Recipes with Bone Broth by Taylor Chen and Lya Mojica – it was just launched recently (Jan 7th 2016).

You can buy the book at Amazon here for my UK readers; for US Readers, you can go to the US Amazon. The book covers aspects that I did not cover, and are important if you want to use bone soup in many ways – for kids and adults, and variations of the original recipe, whilst keeping the main healing properties you need to have to get the benefits.

Making bone soup is easy, but there are various aspects of cooking which this book covers that are not always understood, and they are assumed you already know them (but many don’t know them) – some people refer to them as secrets of cooking; things like adding salt just before eating the soup, rather than during cooking or serving makes a huge difference in healing properties of the soup and gaining benefits from the salt for your health.

In case you’re wondering, it’s related to the salt attaching itself to the impurities in the food instead of being used to detoxify your body (yes Salt is powerful – See article here on “12 Reasons Salt makes you Invincible“). To conclude, you can have bone soup everyday, and get all the nutrients you need, THAT is how nutrient dense it is – what are you waiting for? Go buy some high quality organic grass fed bones and get cooking!
