Why We’re All Deficient In Magnesium, The Many Signs & What To Do. Magnesium is life. It is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body, right next to sulfur (which is JUST as important). Along with being a mineral, magnesium is also an electrolyte. “Sports drinks” (aka sugar-filled scams) claim to contain electrolytes such as magnesium, potassium, and sodium because we sweat away these important nutrients during exercise, and their deficiency is what leads to the common problems athletes face, such as muscle cramping!

But believe me – electrolytes (especially magnesium) do so much more than treat and prevent muscle cramps. First off, electrolytes are what allow us to be living, electrical beings. They are responsible for all electrical activity (and thus brain conductivity) in the body. Without electrolytes like magnesium, muscles can’t fire, your heart cannot beat, and your brain doesn’t receive any signals. Nearly EVERYONE has signs of magnesium deficiency but we don’t realize it… Symptoms include: Cravings Do you crave chocolate? Why Are We So Deficient?

Posted 06/10/13 - 6:33, as amended 6/10/13 - 9:59 (AP) Original Source By Marcus Husby and Bjorn Haugan Norwegian doctors, professors and international health experts believe women, children and young people should stay away from farmed salmon on the dinner dish. Norwegians have become a salmon-eating peoples, and farmed salmon has become the new favorite. Just last year Norway produced about 60 percent of the world production of Atlantic salmon, which is equivalent to 1.1836 million tons of fish. Norwegian health authorities recommend Norwegians to eat seafood three times a week. . - Salmon feed harmful Consultant Anne-Lise Birch Monsen clinical department at Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen, is one of the six independent health experts VG has spoken to.

She advises several groups (against) having farmed salmon in their diet at all. - I do not recommend pregnant women, children or young people eat farmed salmon. She explains that the toxins are stored largely in the fat on the human body. 'Gluten Brain': Wheat Cuts Off Blood Flow To Frontal Cortex. By Sayer Ji Contributing Writer for Wake Up World As far back as 1954, reports of the full or partial resolution of schizophrenia following a gluten free diet began to surface in the medical literature. We covered this remarkable pattern of associations in a previous article titled, “60 Years of Research Links Gluten Grains to Schizophrenia.”

While the explanation for this intriguing connection has remained focused on the disruption of the gut-brain axis and the presence in wheat of a wide range of pharmacologically active and mostly opioid receptor modulating polypeptides, a new and possibly more disturbing explanation is beginning to surface: wheat consumption cuts off blood flow to the brain. Then, in 2004, a follow up study was performed to verify if the 1997 case study was just a fluke, or perhaps a widespread effect of untreated celiac disease. They concluded: “There is evidence of regional cerebral blood flow alteration in untreated celiac patients.” Discussion Dr. Article References. Articles - Trace Minerals Research. By Dr. Chris Meletis N. D. An increasingly large amount of disease today may be attributable to deficiencies in the supply of trace minerals in our diets.1 How can this be the case when the availability of food in our country is unprecedented, with a supermarket on every corner? These deficiencies do not stem from a lack of quantity of food, rather they stem from the quality of food.

The mineral content of food is mainly dependent on the amount of minerals found in the soil in which it is grown. Trace minerals have numerous roles. Physicians that specialize in natural medicine are some of the biggest proponents of trace mineral supplementation. However, practitioners of natural medicine are very excited with the many dramatic turn-arounds toward health that many of their patients have experienced with the use of mineral supplementation. Another condition that is successfully treated with magnesium and trace minerals is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. References 3 Rappaport AM, Scheftell FD. What Happens To Our Body After Drinking Coca Cola? Have you ever wondered what exactly Coca Cola is? After 10 minutes: Ten tea spoons of sugar contained in a glass of Cola, cause devastating “strike” on the organism and the only cause, by reason of not vomiting, is the phosphoric acid which inhibits the action of sugar. After 20 minutes: A leap of insulin levels in bloodstream occurs.

The liver converts all the sugar into fat. After 40 minutes: Ingestion of caffeine is finally completed. The eye pupils are expanding. Blood pressure rises, because the liver disposes more sugar into bloodstream. After 45 minutes: Body raises production of dopamine hormone, which stimulates the brain pleasure center. After 1 hour: Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the gastrointestinal tract, which supercharges metabolism.

After more than 1 hour: Diuretic effect of the drink enters in “the game”. Actually, when having a cold bottle of Coke and enjoying its undeniable freshness, do we know what chemical “cocktail” we pour into our throats? Dirty Secrets of The Food Processing Industry. Written by Sally Fallon We have always processed our food; this is an activity that is uniquely human. We chop, soak, cook and ferment our food - as well as grind and dry - these are all types of processing. Traditional processing has two functions: to make food more digestible and to preserve it for use during times when food isn’t readily available. Nutritious, long-lasing processed foods including pemmican, hard sausage and old-fashioned meat puddings and haggis, as well as grain products, dairy products, pickles—everything from wine and spirits to lacto-fermented condiments.

Farmers and artisans—bread makers, cheese makers, distillers, millers and so forth—processed the raw ingredients into delicious foods that retained their nutritional content over many months or even years, and kept the profits on the farm and in the farming communities where they belonged. Let’s look at the processing involved in the typical American breakfast of cereal, skim milk and orange juice. Hjertekirurg undskylder. | BLIV STRESSFRI MED GARANTI. STATINER og FEDTFATTIG KOST VIRKER IKKE. SPIS FEDT og REN (rigtig) mad det er den fedtfattige kost der er farlig for kolesterol og hjertet.

John Boel ▶ AcuNova 4. september Hjertekirurg taler ud om den virkelige årsag til hjertelidelser Dr. Dwight Lundell, PreventDisease: Vi læger med al vores uddannelse, viden og autoritet får ofte et temmeligt stort ego, der har en tendens til at gøre det svært at indrømme, at vi har taget fejl. Så her er det. Jeg indrømmer åbent, at jeg har taget fejl. Som hjertekirurg med 25 års erfaring og mere end 5.000 udførte indgreb, er dette dagen, hvor jeg med lægelige og videnskabelige fakta retter op på en fejltagelse. Jeg har i mange år arbejdet sammen med andre ledende specialister, også kaldet “opinionsdannere”.

Den eneste accepterede terapi var at udskrive medicin til sænkning af kolesteroltallet, samt at anbefale en kost, der var yderst lav på fedt. Det virker ikke! Disse anbefalinger kan ikke længere forsvares – hverken videnskabeligt eller moralsk. Think Food Doesn’t Affect Behavior? You’ve Got to Read This. {Food and behavior is a big topic these days. Folks are talking about gluten-free diets, paleo diets, candida diets, and more. Does it all matter? Does food affect things like autism, ADD, ADHD and just plain old defiance? Ruth Almon, of Paleo Diet Basics is sharing with us some fascinating information about how food affects behavior. I was amazed when I read this–check it out and make sure to share it to get the word out.

It’s common to joke about kids being on a sugar high after a party, so all of us know –on some level–that food influences how kids behave. But how many of us realize the extent to which our children’s day-to-day actions are shaped and molded by the foods we feed them? An experiment on the effects of food on behavior done by the British TV series, The Food Hospital, produced shocking results.

Children in Britain aged 5 – 9 attended a party. Group One: was fed healthy options such as apple slices, carrot sticks, sandwiches, hummus, etc. and was given water to drink. 1. Quote: Nutrients: drBrogan. Egg er supermaten alle bør spise! | Fagfolk innen ernæring har drevet propaganda mot egg, som faktisk er en av de sunneste matvarene vi kan spise, for lenge.

Nå er det på tide å få fakta på bordet! Dersom jeg må definere bare en matvare som en slags supermat, ville det vært egg. Derfor anbefaler jeg alle å spise egg! Fagfolk innen ernæring har i lang tid fortalt oss om at den sunne maten er usunn. Men det er ikke de verste eksemplene. Egg forårsaker ikke hjertesykdom Historisk sett har egg blitt sett på som usunt fordi de inneholder kolesterol. I en ny oversiktsstudie publisert i 2013 så 17 prospektive undersøkelser nærmere på sammenhengen mellom egg og helse. Konklusjon: Egg og kostkolesterol har ingen sammenheng med hjertesykdom. Egg er en viktig kilde til antioksidanter Egg er spesielt rik på antioksidantene Lutein og zeaxanthin. Konklusjon: Egg inneholder en betydelig mengde lutein og zeaxanthin som reduserer risikoen for aldersrelaterte øyesykdommer. Egg er en av de mest næringsrike matvarene. 6 Bodily Tissues That Can Be Regenerated Through Nutrition.

Foods That Can Feed The Pineal Gland. By Nwenna Kai Our pineal gland otherwise known as our master gland or the gland that governs over our third eye is the center of psychic awareness in the human mind. It is about the size of a pea and sits inside a cave located behind the pituitary gland. It naturally produces a hormone called melatonin which regulates human daily body rhythms that deal directly with the day and night cycles. Developing and expanding the function and the energy of your pineal gland is extremely important as it affects every system in your body physically and it has the potential to determine the expansion or the contraction of your psychic awareness, consciousness, and experience. Sunlight is extremely important for the pineal gland and yes sunlight is a form of food as food is any substance that nourishes the body. Seaweed vegetables that are sun-dried by the sun contain high amounts of vitamin D, many vitamins in the B-vitamin family and iodine.

Article Source About the Author. Leading Neurologist Says Grains Are Bad For Your Brain - Can Lead To Dementia, Chronic Headaches And Depression. Gluten allergies don't exist said a leading doctor last week, which surely should have given comfort to those of us who have avoided wheat grains for fear of headaches and bloating. But a leading neurologist, Dr David Perlmutter, has said we should avoid grains altogether, as they are contributing to some serious conditions and illnesses such as dementia, depression and chronic headaches. For those of us who have made the switch to healthier grains such as wholemeal, this will come as disconcerting news. But the doctor, who has just published Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar - Your Brain's Silent Killers has said that all grain-based carbs should be eliminated.

He is the founder of the Perlmutter Health Center in Naples, Florida, reported, who reported the doctor as saying that our brains thrive on fat and cholesterol but suffer when we eat grains. It's his belief that the risk of Alzheimer's disease can be reduced by changing your diet.
