FOUR STEPS FOR A HEALTHIER YOU.

SELF-CARE ISN’T SELFISH- When too many obligations and plans with family and friends become a burden,its OK to take a pass. If indeed spending a night at home,or retreating to the comfort of your bed,can help keep unintended stress at bay. Everyone needs a break from their social life or daily ruts occasionally. BRING ON THE BREAKFAST- Busy mornings might leave you feeling short on time,then lead you to skipping out on breakfast altogether. Though it might feel like e huge time saver,skipping breakfast is actually detrimental to your day. Quick breakfast options that you can prepare ahead of time,like veggie egg muffins or overnight oats,provide energy and nutrients,like fiber,that you need,to keep your body moving all day long. TREAT THE SMALL STUFF- If you feel that something is off with your body,no matter how small it may seem,taking action right away can go a long way in preventing bigger issues. Treating minor health conditions can be just as important,for overall health,as visiting the doctor for more serious concerns,like the flue or chronic pains. WORK,WALK,WORK.REPEAT! Remaining sedentary all day can result in a number of physical ailments. To help steer clear of these,set a timer and get up for a five-minute lap around the office or house every hour or so. Not only will you minimise potential aches,but getting up and moving throughout the day can also make you more productive.  With these tips in mind,you can be more on top of your health throughout the year,and all this can be achieved without making any drastic changes.

Elimination diet

An elimination diet, also known as exclusion diet is a diagnostic procedure used to identify foods that an individual cannot consume without adverse effects.[1] Adverse effects may be due to food allergy, food intolerance, other physiological mechanisms (such as metabolic or toxins),[2] or a combination of these. Elimination diets typically involve entirely removing a suspected food from the diet for a period of time from two weeks to two months, and waiting to determine whether symptoms resolve during that time period. In rare cases, a health professional may wish to use an oligoantigenic diet to relieve a patient of symptoms…

Alkalize Your Body for Better Health

It is easy to get lost in the whole health-food terminology and discourse on clean living. One can’t really tell where healthy stops and unhealthy begins. One major factor in determining the healthfulness of a food can be by looking at it from an alkaline or acidic point of view. The more alkaline it is the better. Alkaline diets have gained more importance from the cancer world, as many research studies are now showing an obvious connection between acidic diets and rise in cancers. Alkaline balance- In order for your…

Mind Your Food

It starts with a cup of ice cream, as we wallow in our feelings of self-pity and unhappiness, the meal ends with huge portions of dessert and coffee. Food and emotions have always had a thing going. We eat more and mostly wrong when we are low, while happiness makes us choose wisely and eat with control. But there has to be a way to check the bad patches, right?  Rationalizing and planning good food choices when low? Yes. Good, bad, and ugly- When you feel low, it results in…

Not Just Calcium, Bones Are Living Tissues.

Remember, Mr. Bones, the skeleton that graced the back of the biology room in high school and college? He was the lead character in many a great prank as well as the main player on the comprehensive exam. Though the popular plastic model has taught lots of kids about bones, we often think of “ bare bones” ( like his) instead of bone that is active, living tissue, which is continually remodeling itself through osteoblastic ( bone forming), and orthoclastic ( bone resorting) activity. Bone is not just a collection…
