  • The Gut and Stress
    Stress is another important factor to consider when we talk about the integrity of the microbiome, managing appetite and the health of the gut. Once again, it has a lot to do with the gut-brain connection. As you know, cortisol, the immune system, and inflammation are linked.

  • If you are experiencing continuous episodes of stress, your body ends up suffering more than you realize. Over time, several organs and systems start to fail and your body’s ability to function becomes severely compromised. In fact, even your bladder health is significantly affected, along with your body’s natural ability to detoxify hazardous substances that you are exposed to on a regular basis.

  • Even with the wide variety of fruits available today, people are still naturally turning to bananas as a regular part of their diet. This may explain why, according to the Produce Marketing Association, as many as 75 percent of consumers tend to purchase bananas. Luckily, bananas can be enjoyed on their own or baked into a tasty healthy banana bread.

  • If you have been dealing with prolonged stress, chances are you have been experiencing difficulty losing weight. This is because stress can drastically affect your body’s ability to function normally. Even worse, it can also compromise your mood and appetite.

  • Let’s just cut straight to the chase: you’re trying to lose weight this year. Aren’t we all? Dieting and losing weight are America’s most common resolutions each year. We all want to be healthier, more physically active, and attractive.

    But the ways to get to that goal are wildly varied. It can be hard to figure out what path and plan is right for you.

    If you’ve kept your ear to the ground on matters of health and dieting, you’ve likely heard the term ketothrown around. Keto is a diet that focuses on a high fat and low carbohydrate intake. But is it right for you?

    The entirety of the keto diet is based on one concept: getting your body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates. When your body burns fat for energy, it is in a state of ketosis, the namesake of the diet plan.

    Keto diet plans limit the amount of food you eat during a day but also the type. A standard keto diet consists of about seventy to eighty percent fats, fifteen percent protein, and only five percent carbohydrates.

    The main source of nourishment on a keto diet is low-to-no-carb foods like fish, vegetables, cheese, meat, eggs, and yogurt. That means fruits, grains, and any and all sugar products are out the window. This is probably a pretty severe switch from your normal eating routine.

    The keto diet has been growing in popularity, with a number of famous faces helping lead the new dieting trend. Keto does have a number of positive health benefits that might make it worth your while.

    The strict limitations on sugar in this diet are sure to cut most, if not all, sugary treats out of your diet. This is a wonderful side-effect to the keto diet, and you’ll be healthier as a result.

    The negative health risks that sugar encourages are numerous and well-documented. Especially if you’re guilty of a sweet tooth in the past, employing keto in your life can help you keep the cookies in the cookie jar and out of your hand.

    This is why you’re considering the diet anyway, right? Many people notice weight loss while on the keto diet, especially when they first start.

    The removal of carb and sugar heavy foods can greatly decrease your weight gain for a number of reasons. For one, such substances contribute to water retention in the body, so cutting them out helps you drop water weight.

    More balanced blood sugar levels also aid in weight loss. Increased satiety due to all of the fat intake also helps to speed up digestion processes. All of these combine to help make keto a great weight loss program.

    The keto diet has been proven to help lower insulin levels in the body. This is a big deal for your general health.

    Insulin is a hormone that moves glucose through your bloodstream. High levels of insulin can easily lead to inflammation, which can be painful and a potential health issue. With the keto diet, you can keep these levels low and keep yourself feeling healthy.

    Nothing is perfect, of course. While not dealbreakers, there’s a number of drawbacks to the keto dietthat you should be aware of before diving in.

    Totally switching your diet around is not exactly an easy task. The breakdown of fat, protein, and carb intakes are incredibly specific. They can be hard for the average person to plan for and follow, especially if you live a busy life and have to sometimes eat on the go.

    Following the keto diet requires a very regimented eating plan, and it’s something that many people aren’t able to provide for themselves.

    In an ideal world, all the fats you’d be consuming on the keto diet would be good or you. But due to the nature of difficulty in finding large amounts fat-based foods, many people fall to eating less-than-healthy options.

    Highly saturated animal fats can be harmful to your long-term health, even if they’re helpful at dropping some pounds in the short-term. If you aren’t able to buy organic, grass-fed animal products, you may be putting yourself at risk.

    I know, I know, it goes against what we just said. But not everyone who takes on the keto diet finds amazing results.

    This is probably because of the difficulty people have in keeping up with the diet’s requirements. Many people become quickly dissatisfied with such a small pool of food options.

    Adhering to keto for only a small diet “period” is likely going to produce limited results. And yet, very few individuals feel they could commit to the keto diet for the long-term. As a result, very few people actually obtain the weight loss that the keto diet promises.

    Everyone wants to lose weight and be healthy. But taking on a diet that you’re unable to keep up with can be more damaging to your health than helpful. Fully understanding the pros and cons of a keto diet can help you determine if it’s the right move for you.

    And if not? There’s plenty of other ways to lose weight.

  • Almost a quarter of the world’s population has anemia. Iron deficiency is a condition affecting over a billion people and it can have serious consequences.

  • Testosterone is a hormone produced by the human body. It’s mainly produced in men by the testicles. Testosterone affects a man’s appearance and sexual development. It stimulates sperm production as well as a man’s sex drive. It also helps build muscle and bone mass.

  • The way we think about weight has changed substantially over the last 20 years. Instead of focusing on just one thing (appearance), fitness professionals today focus on whats underneath the surface, things like cholesterol and body mass index (BMI).

  • In this chapter we will have a look at what cancer is and more importantly, what causes it. Most people in the medical industry believe cancer to be a genetic disease where a cell or cells in the body become mutated in response to toxicity.

  • Colostrum may help your skin by having an effect on what is considered to be the cause of aging in some circles – oxidative stress.

  • The most common New Year’s resolution for 2019 was to lose weight.

  • Calories consumed minus calories burned: it’s the simple formula for weight loss or gain. But dieters often find that it doesn’t work.

  • If you’re not getting a good night’s sleep then you’re seriously damaging your mind and body... to the point where you could develop dementia, Alzheimer’s, Cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and a number of other life threatening medical issues.

    After going through over 17-thousand clinical trials and pouring over results from 30-years of clinical tests Scientists, Researchers and Doctors now say you need to have 7 to 9 hours of good, deep sleep. Anything less than 7 hours doubles the likelihood of developing crippling diseases and dramatically reduces your lifespan. 8 hours of good sleep is the ideal.

    So if you think you can get by on 6 hours or less – think again. You may feel you can but science says you can and you’ll end up paying the price in a few years.

    Maybe you’re feeling the impact of not getting good sleep right now.

    If you’re tossing and turning or wake up during the night then you’re not getting the good restful sleep your mind and body needs to heal.

    If you’re feeling tired during the day, can’t think clearly, feel like you have brain fog, forget things, are yawning during the day, get annoyed easily, feel anxious or down then you’re not getting good sleep.

    Over time the lack of good sleep will wear you down physically and mentally.

    In fact, Doctor’s now say that getting 6 hours of sleep is as bad as being legally drunk – your mind and body don’t react as quickly as you want or expect.

    And those who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to be negative, feel anxious and depressed.

    79-Percent of Adults don’t get the good sleep they need – so you’re not alone when it comes to struggling with sleep.

    I know. I used to have a horrible time sleeping.

    Like most of us, I thought it was just my busy schedule. I would work until late, had a family to take care of and I had to manage multiple businesses – there never seemed like there was enough time to get everything done, let alone sleep.

    We often think we don’t need sleep – that we can get by without sleep or make do with just a few hours of sleep.

    Science and the research says that kind of thinking leads to an early death. We need sleep – good, deep sleep.

    Catching up on sleep over the weekend doesn’t help either. Sleep isn’t like a bank. You can’t deposit and withdraw as you please to try and make up or borrow some as you need it.

    To be at your best and avoid an early death and/or a debilitating life threatening disease you need to sleep well every night.

    But how can you get good sleep when you’ve got so much to do, not enough time and feel constantly stressed.

    When you finally get to bed you feel exhausted but you can’t fall asleep and stay asleep because your mind is over active. You keep thinking about everything and you just can’t fall asleep – you feel wired but tired.

    That’s because all the stress, all that you keep thinking about, is forcing your body to produce more and more cortisol.

    Known as the stress hormone, cortisol is supposed to help us make quick decisions when we’re under stress. But today (and every day) we constantly feel stressed. So our bodies keep producing more and more cortisol. The cortisol producing switch in our body is stuck in the “on” position and we have way too much cortisol.

    When we have too much cortisol our body it works against the sleep hormones our body produces, so we want to go to sleep, we feel tired but we can’t fall asleep because the extra cortisol is keeping us up at night.

    Medication and over the counter sleep aids don’t help because they just try to knock you out and in the morning you feel more tired than the night before.

    The real solution is to reduce your cortisol so you can fall asleep and stay asleep.

    You can reduce cortisol by controlling your thoughts and not focusing on all those things that make you feel stressed. It’s easier said than done and it takes practice.

    So the next time you’re feeling stressed track your thoughts and change them to something positive or something more pleasant. Try to avoid thinking about the things that make you feel stressed or anxious.

    You can also reduce your cortisol by exercising but you have to exercise every day. If you’re not regularly exercising then start with a light routine and work your way up to more rigorous exercises. You’ll want to get to a point where you’re breaking a sweat to reduce cortisol and you’ll need to exercises for at least an hour a day.

    If you’re already exercising then step it up a bit and you may have to increase your workout to bring down your cortisol.

    I discovered I had high cortisol levels when I couldn’t sleep at night. So I started working on reducing my cortisol but everything I tried just wasn’t getting the job done.
