Magnesium Supplements for Weight Loss - How to Lose Belly Fat Faster Magnesium Supplements for Weight Loss - How to Lose Belly Fat Faster Thinkstock Our bodies require magnesium for more than 300 chemical reactions, including keeping heart rhythm steady and regulating blood sugar levels, but in addition to its health benefits, this nutrient may also aid in weight loss and body shaping. A 2013 study in the Journal of Nutrition found that higher magnesium intake was associated with lower levels of fasting glucose and insulin (markers related to fat and weight gain), and one study from England found that a magnesium supplement may have some beneficial effects on reducing fluid retention during the menstrual cycle, meaning you'll feel less bloated. Flat-belly solution: Eat more magnesium-rich foods, such as leafy green vegetables, beans, and nuts.

暑い夏は、全身から発せられる汗で体がべたつきがち。自分が不快になるだけではなく、その汗が原因となる臭いで周囲も不快になるケースもある。それを防ぐためのカギとなりそうなのが「酢」だという。 酢に含まれるクエン酸が雑菌の活動を抑える 夏にエアコンの効いた室内で長時間過ごす人は、汗をかかない。 五味クリニックの院長で、体臭・多汗研究所所長でもある五味常明先生によると、酢を入れた風呂に入るのも体臭軽減に効果があるという。 "酢のお風呂"を家庭で試す場合、醸造酢なら180Lのお湯に対してコップ一杯(約200㏄)、黒酢ならおちょこ1杯程度でOK。 酢の摂取は、エネルギー代謝を円滑にして、疲労物質「乳酸」の生成や不快な臭いのもとである過酸化脂質の生成を抑える効果がある。 最近ではスーパーなどでも、そのまま飲めるストレートタイプの黒酢やりんご酢などのドリンクが販売されている。 写真と本文は関係ありません 取材協力: 五味クリニック院長 / 体臭・多汗研究所所長 五味常明先生 1949年長野県生まれ。 ワキ臭対策には"酢のお風呂"が効果的!? - 酢の殺菌力でにおいを撃退 ワキ臭対策には"酢のお風呂"が効果的!? - 酢の殺菌力でにおいを撃退
You know your brain makes mistakes without you even realizing it, don’t you? In fact, it’s probably making a few mistakes as you’re reading these words. Yep, you read that right. Your mind is full of biases based on your past experiences. And it’s not just you. See, your beliefs imprison you, and your biases skew your perception. But the good news is that by paying attention to your thought patterns through a regular mindfulness practice you can become aware of mistakes as they happen. 1. Ever sat through an awful movie at the cinemas because you’d paid good money for the ticket? “Evolutionary science” says that our tendency to avoid threats — as opposed to our tendency to maximize opportunities — gave us the best chance of survival from predators. A good way to approach things is to ask yourself what you want most out of life. 2. Imagine this. Wrong! The truth is the odds don’t change. But there’s a simple solution: use a mindfulness-based approach. 3. 4. 5. So, why is this a problem? 7 Mistakes Your Brain Makes Every Day – And How To Fix Them 7 Mistakes Your Brain Makes Every Day – And How To Fix Them

THE INEXPENSIVE ARTHRITIS & OSTEOPOROSIS CURE THE INEXPENSIVE ARTHRITIS & OSTEOPOROSIS CURE Absolutely nothing is more disheartening and frustrating than to be doing everything you believe to be right, and spending hours a day teaching others about real food and nutrition, while suffering in silence with unexplained joint pain and trying to hide an ever incapacitating limp! And then at a Weston A. Price conference on nutrition, Sally Fallon casually dropped a ‘precious jewel’ that has given me the promise of a whole new day! A day? BORON is a mineral that is simply an activator. Boron also assists in preventing arthritis and tooth decay. Boron deficiency can cause cell walls to become very weak and fragile, rendering the cells incapable of properly transferring nutrients into them. …Boron is a very important part of a long chain that intertwines all the minerals necessary for individual cell growth and health! Boron is essential for ALL life in plants as well as animals. Chemical fertilizers inhibit the uptake of Boron from the soil. Dr. Most of Dr. Dr. Dr. ha! To your health!
Is Breakfast Really the Most Important Meal of the Day? Is Breakfast Really the Most Important Meal of the Day? Breakfast has been made out to be one of the most important meals of the day. It’s considered taboo to skip it, and we'll even go so far as to shame people for doing so. After all, making time to eat this one meal allows our lives to improve dramatically, or so it seems. Without it we've been told we run the risk of having lower IQs or increasing our risk of coronary heart disease. However, breakfast's magical properties may have been overstated. Aaron E. One study actually looked at the common proposition that skipping breakfast causes weight gain. Cereal companies have a vested interest to make sure consumers buy into breakfast. Nutrition researcher Marion Nestle would agree. So, what really happens when we don’t eat breakfast? Some suggest it may actually help people lose weight, but most have found eating breakfast has no discernible effect on weight loss. In this case, the simplest advice might be the best.

Climate policy needs a new lens: health and well-being Climate policy needs a new lens: health and well-being As the new Australian parliament takes the reins, health groups are moving to ensure that health minister Sussan Ley addresses a major health threat in this term of government: climate change. Largely ignored by successive federal governments, the health risks from climate change are increasingly urgent. One or two degrees of warming at a global level may not sound like much, but if you take many organisms (including humans) too far outside their comfort zone, the consequences are deadly. The Climate and Health Alliance – a coalition of concerned health groups, researchers, academics and professional associations – is calling on the Australian government to develop a national strategy for climate, health and well-being. How climate change affects health Major increases in ill-health are anticipated from continued climate change. During this five-day event, ambulances had a 46% increase in demand. Heat doesn’t just affect the very old and very young. Time for policy commitment
Deadly by the Dozen: 12 Diseases Climate Change May Worsen Deadly by the Dozen: 12 Diseases Climate Change May Worsen Bird flu, cholera, Ebola, plague and tuberculosis are just a few of the diseases likely to spread and get worse as a result of climate change, according to a report released yesterday by the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). To prevent such ailments from becoming as destructive as the "black death" (which wiped out a third of Europe's population in the 14th century) or the flu pandemic of 1918 (which killed an estimated 20 million to 40 million people worldwide, including between 500,000 and 675,000 people in the U.S.), WCS suggests monitoring wildlife to detect signs of these pathogens before a major outbreak. "We will see a shift in the geographic distribution of diseases, with certain areas having reduced prevalence and other areas increasing," says veterinarian William Karesh, WCS's vice president of global health programs. The deadly dozen include: Ebola: This virus is lethal to humans and other primates, and has no cure.
Health Impacts of Climate Change Health Impacts of Climate Change Changes in the greenhouse gas concentrations and other drivers alter the global climate and bring about myriad human health consequences. Environmental consequences of climate change, such as extreme heat waves, rising sea-levels, changes in precipitation resulting in flooding and droughts, intense hurricanes, and degraded air quality, affect directly and indirectly the physical, social, and psychological health of humans. For instance, changes in precipitation are creating changes in the availability and quantity of water, as well as resulting in extreme weather events such as intense hurricanes and flooding. Climate change can be a driver of disease migration, as well as exacerbate health effects resulting from the release of toxic air pollutants in vulnerable populations such as children, the elderly, and those with asthma or cardiovascular disease. Certain adverse health effects can be minimized or avoided with sound mitigation and adaptation strategies. Adobe Reader

Novembre 2016 Près d'une personne sur trois est concernée aujourd'hui par un problème d'allergie et les chiffres continuent d'augmenter régulièrement. De nombreux allergologues estiment même que dans moins de 10 ans, une personne sur 2 sera allergique. Le pourcentage d'allergiques a doublé en 15 ans dans les pays industrialisés ce qui alerte particulièrement tous les médecins et notamment les allergologues, alors que ce chiffre atteignait à peine 5% au début des années 70. Les maladies allergiques sont classées au quatrième rang par l'OMS. Statistiques Les prévisions les plus pessimistes donnent la troisième place aux allergies dans la décennie à venir. 40% des français présentent toutes les possibilités de développer des manifestations allergiques. Pourtant plus de 50% des allergiques ne sont pas diagnostiquées en tant que tels, ne bénéficient pas de traitement adapté et vivent avec des manifestations gênantes et parfois invalidantes qui s'aggravent au fil des années.

Sommes-nous vraiment faits pour dormir ensemble ? Pour une vie de couple épanouie au lit, la taille compte : un matelas de 160 cm vaut mieux que le classique 140, selon les spécialistes du sommeil. LE MONDE | • Mis à jour le | Par Laure Belot Allons-nous cesser d'être masochistes au lit ? Apparemment, nous y travaillons. Sur les 4 millions de matelas vendus chaque année, la largeur 140 cm est toujours la star incontestée de nos nuits (65 % des matelas achetés en France). Tendance similaire chez Ikea qui ne donne toutefois pas de chiffres précis. Cette recherche de confort n'a rien de vain. Il est vrai que nous nous lançons, depuis quelques décennies, un défi de taille : non seulement nous voulons conjuguer amour et couple (une nouveauté de moins d'un siècle), mais nous cherchons toujours à dormir ensemble. N'en déplaise à l'Eglise, dormir à deux est un acte récent pour notre espèce, et qui n'a rien de naturel. Or, l'impact de la dimension du lit sur la qualité de notre sommeil est flagrant. Pourquoi cette différence ?
Des architectes plaident pour le retour des buanderies pour se protéger des moisissures. Elles se nomment Acremonium strictum, Fusarium solaniou encore Aureobasidium pullulans… Et ne sont que quelques-unes parmi les très nombreuses moisissures qui peuvent empoisonner la vie en proliférant dans les espaces humides. «L'exposition aux moisissures est universelle. Celles-ci jouent un rôle critique dans l'écosystème», rappelle un rapport publié il y a quelques années par le Conseil supérieur d'hygiène publique de France. Disparition de la ventilation naturelle Or une étude effectuée par une équipe de l'école d'architecture Mackintosh (Grande-Bretagne) tend à montrer que l'une des causes de l'humidité dans les appartements pourrait être aisément éradiquée: il s'agit en effet du linge qui sèche. Selon les auteurs de l'étude reprise sur le site de la BBC «quelque deux litres d'eau peuvent s'évaporer du linge sortant d'une seule machine». » Moisissures: on ne les voit pas toujours Le linge, principale source de moisissure dans les maisons

Um auf die explosionsartige Vermehrung medizinischen Know-hows angemessener zu reagieren, implementiert WellPoint, eine der größten Versicherungsgesellschaften der USA, gemeinsam mit IBM softwaregestützte Diagnosesysteme in Krankenhäusern. Dazu soll der Supercomputer Watson zum Einsatz kommen. Weil er in knapp drei Sekunden rund 200 Millionen Seiten an Inhalten verarbeiten kann, verfügt er nach kurzer Zeit über einen Wissensvorsprung gegenüber seinen menschlichen Kollegen. So soll Watson Ärzte auch bei der Suche nach Behandlungsmethoden unterstützen. Der intelligente Einsatz moderner Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologien wird Gesundheitsversorgung, Therapie und Behandlungsverfahren auch im Klinikum Darmstadt revolutionieren. Er birgt enorme Potenziale für effizientere Strukturen: Viele Aufgaben von Laboren, Pathologie usw. werden sich problemlos outsourcen und als Serviceleistungen von Zulieferern bewerkstelligen lassen. iHealth & Co.: Gesundheit im Jahr 2040
