How to Balance Your pH to Heal Your Body

How to Balance Your pH to Heal Your Body
Some health experts believe that our pH balance is extremely important, others say it is essential, there are a few who clearly state that it is a matter of life and death. The only people who don't emphasize the alkaline/acidity balance as central to health are quacks that peddle a pharmaceutical pill for every ill, a drug for every bug. As a naturopath and yoga therapist for over a decade I can say that pH balance is a top priority when I am working one on one with my students. Since most people are too acidic, teaching them how to return to a slightly alkaline state is a major piece of the healing puzzle. pH stands for power of hydrogen, which is a measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body. By including pH balance in my approach to health and healing, through yoga and nutrition, I have seen repeatedly students bodies and minds rebuild on their own from all kinds of degenerative conditions that no one else was able to cure. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Turmeric's Cardiovascular Benefits Found To Be As Powerful As Exercise By Sayer Ji Contributing Writer for Wake Up World Nothing can replace exercise, but turmeric extract does a pretty good job of producing some of the same cardiovascular health benefits, most notably in women undergoing age-associated adverse changes in arterial health. Despite the general lack of interest by conventional medical practitioners in turmeric’s role in preventing heart disease, there is a robust body of published research on its remarkable cardioprotective properties, with three dozen study abstracts on the topic available to view on GreenMedInfo’s database alone: turmeric’s cardioprective properties. Last year, GreedMedInfo reported on a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology that found turmeric extract reduces post-bypass heart attack risk by 56%. The 8-week long study involved 32 postmenopausal women who were assigned into 3 groups: a non-treatment control, exercise, and curcumin.

The Myth of Agave as a "Healthy" Sugar Substitute Many people interested in staying healthy have switched to agave as a safer "natural" sweetener. They want to avoid well documented dangerous sweeteners like HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) but are unaware that most agave is actually WORSE than HFCS. This expose will offend many hard core natural health advocates because they have been convinced of the agave hype by companies that are promoting it. Some have even criticized me for having "ulterior" motives. But nothing could be further from the truth. Although I do offer natural health products for sale on this site, I sell no competing products to agave. Rather, I recommend other options such as stevia products. My only purpose for sharing this information is to help people understand the truth about health. I had similar epiphanies about omega-3 fats and vitamin D since I started this site, but this is the most major health appreciation I have had since I learned about vitamin D over five years ago. So Just What is Agave? Dicalite

NATURE CURES Parasites and Worms - ADVERT FREE See below for 40 natural remedies and a cleansing diet to kill and flush out worms and parasites. More worrying still is the growing penchant in allopathic medicine for actively infecting people with parasites in order to quell unwanted immune responses such as allergies and autoimmune diseases. Parasitic worms and their larvae have evolved considerable defences with thick, armoured outer layers, fearsome mouthparts and well-developed muscles which enable them to penetrate and survive inside their host. The eosinophils bind to the worms and release toxins from their granules in order to kill them. IgE antibodies are found attached to mast cells where they act as receptors for any substance that may have been produced by, or is attached to, a multi-cellular parasite. The IgE antibody response is also responsible for allergies. Causes The eggs of these parasites are introduced into the human system through the medium of food or water, especially undercooked meat.

USAP PAETE :: View topic - (Chem) (Health) Zinc: A New Metal Detector to Study Disease Michael Woods American Chemical Society 21 march 2006 A new metal detector to study human disease Zinc may be a familiar dietary supplement to millions of health-conscious people, but it remains a mystery metal to scientists who study zinc’s role in Alzheimer’s disease, stroke and other health problems. They are just beginning to fathom how the body keeps levels of zinc under the precise control that spells the difference between health and disease. Researchers now have developed a biochemical metal detector to help crack the mystery. The study appears in the current issue of ACS Chemical Biology, the newest of 34 journals published by the American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific organization. It was conducted by Rebecca A. “The question of how much zinc is available in a cell has emerged at the forefront of chemical biology,” Amy R. Just 2-3 grams of zinc (the weight of a penny coin) exist in the entire human body. “This is an important discovery,” said Sarah B. Drs.

Why Dandelions Are the New Kale Kale has received plenty of press in the last decade. Good for kale. Good for our bodies. Kale is actually a “gateway” leaf into the world of green. Green your diet, and you will naturally start to pay more attention to plants with leaves. Humans Used to Eat Green As a species we’re in a “remembering” phase of our health evolution. Inner & Outer Ecosystem Theory There is a holistic gorgeousness to the situation here: as we green our diet with growing complexity, we evacuate the toxic rubbish from our cells. Externally, we begin to notice more variety in the plants in the supermarket, our yard and our ecosystem. The Dandelion Effect I’ve seen the dandelion effect emerge like this: you do your first body cleanse and start drinking green juice or green smoothies. The light bulb goes off. Wait, you think. Greens Are Free Now, it really clicks and you see that all plants, not just the ones in the grocery store, have green leaves. I’m glad you’ve started eating green.

3 Powerful Nutrients to Help Kick your Anxiety Symptoms In my practice, as a therapist and health coach, I have found far too often that people struggling with anxiety use food to self-medicate. And, I’m not referring to kale or quinoa! Food creates a powerful response in the body. Your body is brilliant. We can become deficient in nutrients for various reasons. Magnesium. Magnesium is a POWERFUL relaxant mineral for the body. Taking a Magnesium Glycinate supplement can be extremely helpful (check with your doctor first if you have other medical conditions), but there are great ways to obtain it through foods. B Vitamins and Iron B-Vitamins have been shown in studies to help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Great food sources of B Vitamins, particularly B6 include poultry, beef, salmon, sweet potato, sunflower seeds, spinach and pistachios. Iron from meat, poultry, and fish (i.e., heme iron) is absorbed two to three times more efficiently than iron from plants (i.e., non-heme iron). Sources:
