Digg HJ: Plants, which eventually become our food, as living, breathing things, have an aura — just as we do. This aura can be considered the energetic signature of a given food or plant and like our aura it can be repaired, magnified and even damaged through certain cooking or growing methods (eg. microwaving, conventional farming utilizing high synthetic inputs, etc.). The aura of a food is the general reflection of the state of health it is in and has a direct correlation with the physical and energetic nutrition it transfers to us when we eat it.

Counteracting Acidic Diet Reduces Markers of Bone Loss in Older Adults. BOSTON, Dec. 3 -- Alkaline compounds, whether from supplements or a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, may counteract bone loss in healthy older adults, researchers said. Increasing alkaline content of the diet with bicarbonate supplementation significantly reduced levels of the bone turnover markers urinary N-telopeptide and calcium excretion (both P=0.001), Bess Dawson-Hughes, M.D., of Tufts University here, and colleagues found in a randomized controlled trial.

For some reason the past week brought me a bunch of emails all asking the same question: Are we supposed to test our blood sugar one hour after we start or end a meal?

As is true with everything involving diabetes the answer is not simple due to variations in individual blood sugar responses. The reason we test one hour after a meals is to learn how high our blood sugar goes in response to the specific meal. So we want to be testing at the moment when our blood sugar is at its peak. Studies tell us something about the average time it takes for the carbohydrate in our food to turn into blood sugar (carbohydrates are the main nutrient that causes elevated blood sugars). Such studies suggest that most Americans who eat our meals fairly quickly will see a peak somewhere between one hour and seventy-five minutes after we start eating.
