Why You Should Drink Warm Water & Lemon

Why You Should Drink Warm Water & Lemon
The way you start each day is incredibly important. Whether you're a mom, a coach, a writer, a small business owner or a yoga teacher, what you do first thing in the morning matters. According to Ayurvedic philosophy, choices that you make regarding your daily routine either build up resistance to disease or tear it down. Your mind may say you have to check emails, take the dog out, get the kids out the door, that you can't be late for work or that you just don't have enough time to cultivate your own morning rituals. But, if you can only make time for one ritual that will improve your health, let it be this..... Start the day out with a mug of warm water and the juice of half a lemon. It's so simple and the benefits are just too good to ignore. 1. Lemons are high in Vitamin C and potassium. 2. Lemons are an incredibly alkaline food, believe it or not. 3. Lemons are high in pectin fiber, which helps fight hunger cravings. 4. 5. 6. The vitamin C helps decrease wrinkles and blemishes. 7.

Colazione con la “CREMA BUDWIG” : Dieta*Nutrizione*Benessere*Salute – Dr. Loreto Nemi La Crema Budwig della Dieta Kousmine La colazione all’italiana, un caffè e poi via di corsa, è una cattiva abitudine alimentare. È importante abituarsi a mangiare qualcosa la mattina. Ma qualcosa di sano e che sia funzionale. Ebbene vi voglio proporre una colazione “alternativa”, che è un po’ una colazione “da Re”: la crema Budwig. La crema Budwig è stata proposta dalla Dott.ssa Catherine Kousmine ideatrice della dieta Kousmine appunto. Facendo riferimento alla ricetta tradizionale gli ingredienti sono: 2 cucchiaini di semi oleosi crudi appena macinati (a scelta tra semi di lino, girasole, sesamo, nocciole, mandorle, zucca) (grassi, fibre, vitamine liposolubili, magnesio)1 cucchiaio colmo di cereali integrali crudi da agricoltura biologica (riso integrale, grano saraceno, avena, miglio, orzo mondo (non perlato), quinoa, amaranto). Si può accompagnare il tutto, se si vuole, con un tè oppure con una tisana. Mi hanno chiesto spesso se la crema Budwig può essere usata dai celiaci.

Eighteen Lohan Hands A kungfu classic showing two of the Eighteen Lohan Hands patterns: “Presenting Claws” and “Three Levels to Ground”. Many readers have asked me about the famous Shaolin Eighteen Lohan Hands. They were taught by the great Bodhidharma in 527 CE to monks at the Shaolin Monastery in China when this First Patriarch of the Shaolin arts found the monks weak and often sleepy during meditaion, which is the essential path towards enlightenment. The Shaolin Eighteen Lohan Hands are fundamental chi kung exercises that can bring tremendous benefits if they are practised as chi kung. But if they are practised as physical exercise, which is often the case nowadays, naturally the practitioner will only get the benefits of physical exercise. At the Shaolin Monastery, these Eighteen Lohan Hands evolved into a kungfu set called “Eighteen Lohan Fist”, which forms the prototype of Shaolin Kungfu today. Because of its long history, there are many versions of the Eighteen Lohan Hands being taught today. 1. 1.

Watermelon extract lowers blood pressure better than dangerous pharmaceuticals (NaturalNews) Heart disease and stroke continue to be the leading cause of death in the US, as vascular deterioration and dysfunction result in hypertension and ultimately, an early demise. Elevated blood pressure results in micro-cracks to the delicate endothelial lining of the blood vessels that must be patched by plaque (formed largely of circulating oxidized LDL cholesterol and calcium particles), beginning the process of atherosclerosis and greatly increased risk of heart attack. Natural methods of lowering high blood pressure can allow the body to heal damaged vessels and arteries, dramatically lowering the risk of heart disease and stroke. Researchers from Florida State University have published the result of a study in the American Journal of Hypertension that explains how natural watermelon extract helps reduce moderately elevated blood pressure by providing a rich source of the amino acids, citrulline and arginine, both known to relax vascular pressure.

Carbohydrate and Fat Controversies: Part 1 Although there are still many Protein Controversies (usually regarding kidney health, bone health, etc.), nowhere in the dietary world is there quite as much controversy as over carbohydrate versus fat intakes. In this article, I want to look at carbohydrate and fat intake in terms of the various arguments and debates that tend to surround them. The main controversy here revolves around what amounts of carbohydrates and/or fat are ideal, healthy, recommended, etc. and that’s what I’ll focus on. I’m not going to deal with body composition explicitly in this article, I’ll save that for another day. Two (or Three) Dietary Camps Generally, folks fall into one of two camps regarding whether they think carbohydrates or fats are good or bad. However, for the most part, I’d say that mainstream dietitians are still on the carbs = good, fat = bad bandwagon with higher fat/lower carbohydrate diets being relegated to the diet ‘fringe’. What does the Body Require? The brain is in its own weird category.
