Workouts For Weight Loss

Nowadays, most people have developed a critical attitude towards their body weight and general appearance. This self consciousness of their looks has given several people at lot of stress as they have developed low self esteem about themselves. There are many workouts for weight loss that are aimed at mitigating the problem of being overweight. These exercises are mainly strength intensive and will require the combination of regular exercise accompanied by observing the right kind of diet to achieve the best results. Usually, too much weight comes with health issues and regular exercise will help keeping these health issues at bay.

Useful Lemon

Lemons – a fruit with a wonderful fragrance, great in food and beverages, but also very handy for multiple purposes around the home!
Lemons have been cultivated by humans for over a thousand years. The fruit is mentioned in tenth century Arabic literature, but was probably first grown in Assam, India.
Lemons are high in vitamin C, have an anti-bacterial effect and are thought to possess antioxidant and anti-carcinogenic properties. The juice consists of about 5% acid, which also makes them useful for a variety of household purposes. Lemons and/or lemon juice are a popular addition in environmentally friendly cleaning applications.

Uses for olive oil

Our use of olive oil dates back prior to 3500 BC and today over three quarters of a billion olive trees are cultivated around the world. One of the amazing things about olive trees are the conditions in which they can grow. While originating from the Mediterranean, there are thriving olive industries in many countries, including Australia, and I've seen them thrive in some very harsh conditions over here.

Olive oil grades

In case you've ever wondered about the various olive oil grades, here are a few of the common ones:

What are the Symptoms of Healthiness and Healing?

Heathicine is the study of health and healthiness. The diagram below shows the gradient of healthiness, to unhealthiness, to illness. Healthiness drops due to deficiencies or excesses, and all illness is caused by deficiencies or excesses. Your healthiness is complex and multi-dimensional. Each layer in your hierarchy of healthiness (genetics, nutrients, cells, tissues, organs, systems, body, mind, spirit and community) can change and move, suddenly or over time, up or down the scale. So can individual health components. The healthiness of your liver, your pancreas, your circulatory system, your spirit health, etc. is changing all of the time, moving up and down the gradient, becoming healthier, unhealthier and sometimes ill.

Hierarchy of Health - Primary and Secondary Disciplines

Health is defined as: “the combined state of physical, mental and social well being”

The primary disciplines of health can be derived in a hierarchical fashion from the foundations of life.

Genetics is the foundation of health. Health begins with genetics, as does life. There is no genetically perfect human - by design. Genetics must vary the elements in development of life to guard against toxins, viruses, bacteria, and other real and potential stressors.

Nutrition is the next layer in the hierarchy of health. Genetics require appropriate nutrients to develop in the first place. The continued development of life requires many nutrients. As life becomes more complex - human life is very complex - nutrition also becomes more complex.

Sugar Detox

Sugar Detox

If it’s impossible to slim down despite your best efforts, your problem may be fructose. This simple sugar occurs naturally in fruits, sweet vegetables, and honey, but is also added as high fructose corn syrup to most baked goods, drinks, sauces, and prepackaged foods.
Recent studies have found that fructose very quickly turns into body fat, in some cases never even yielding energy for the body to use, says Richard Johnson, author of The Sugar Fix (Rodale, 2008). Fructose also puts a damper on a hormone called leptin, which signals our brain that we’re satiated and it’s time to stop eating. To end your own sugar fix and lose weight, follow this plan from Johnson:

Your Immune system YOUR ARMY

Your Immune System is your Defence Force, your system that keeps out invaders, captures the ones that get through the barriers that have been set up and kills and destroys them. It also uses our waste removal systems to optimally rid the body of battle debris after the battle is won, to leave it clean and pure to continue its life-sustaining functioning. If we could just look to nature, in its perfection, at species and ecosystems that control their own environment for eons under the most extreme conditions and bombardment of forces, we can find the answers. Like lowly ants, we must believe that we are created with the most advanced Defence System that is designed to tackle almost any attack, given the correct functioning of each part and the support of these contingency plans and not their opposition.

5 Things to Boost Your Energy in the Morning

Many of us who live in a world that requires us to work long days and/or stay up to the wee hours of the night tends to, over time, take its toll on our health. By not getting enough sleep or exercise, eating the proper foods, or over stimulating ourselves oncoffee, we are asking for trouble down the road. Many of us believe that being "tired" is a normal way of life and drinking 4 cups of coffee is just fine because everyone else seems to be doing it. Most of us carry-on  without even questioning our routines. We have been so programmed into what "society" has been telling us that it becomes part of our daily reality. The good news however is that we are all capable of overcoming any situation, thereby "choosing" the reality in which to live that excites us the most. Unfortunately, many of us still "choose" to follow the "norm" and as a result suffer from boredom and unhappiness. The reality is that we all have the capability of choosing the way in which we want to live that is conducive to our own objectives (taking into consideration the benefit to the whole) which will propel us into a more fulfilling and happier life. In an effort to guide you through this path, we have listed a few things that we do in the morning to kick start our day.

The Medicine Cabinet in Your Kitchen – Ten Top Common Healing Herbs and Spices

1. CAYENNE - Cayenne pepper has wonderful cardiovascular benefits, including lowering blood pressure. Famed herbalist Doctor John Christopher noted that a couple of teaspoons of cayenne pepper never failed to stop a heart attack in only minutes. When added to food, cayenne increases appetite, improves digestion and relieves gas, nausea and indigestion. It also thins phlegm and eases its passage from the lungs.

How to Develop Sexual and Romantic Attraction to People Who Are Good for You

We can’t force our sexual attractions. Most of us have learned that the hard way.

Yet, there’s something profound that most of us have never been taught: Although sexual attractions can’t be controlled, they can be educated. This post will teach some ways to cultivate sexual and romantic attraction to people who are kind, respectful and available. Even if you’re relentlessly attracted to bad-boys or bad-girls, or to unavailable people, you can still develop this capacity!

These suggestions are not gimmicks, they are the lifelong skills of romance and intimacy—the very same skills you will use to keep passion alive in your next serious relationship. .

The Three Steps That Lead to Love

An important message for every single person: The way we search for love usually determines the kind of love we find. Popular culture assails us with romanticized images of love, and then encourages us to play dehumanizing games in order to find it. The steps I describe in this post will not only lead you toward real love; they will also enrich your entire life, because they are the skills of true intimacy.

Go Where You're Likely To Find Generous, Giving People

Forgive me for starting off with the hardest one of all. Going to events filled with strangers is an awkward thing to do. It's immeasurably harder than surfing the web in your comfy T-shirt. Believe me, I know. I spent decades trying to avoid this step. But if you really want a good relationship, take my advice: Get out of the house—and don't make a bar your first choice. If you're looking for the person who will become "home" for you, start by looking in the best places.

Fish Oil is good for Wrinkles

Essential oils and wrinkles are connected only by a misunderstanding. Fish oil and wrinkles, on the other hand, may seem to have nothing to do with each other: but properly purified fish oil is a wonderful addition to good skincare.

Here's the misunderstanding:

Calm Down

After a harried afternoon at the office or a tense argument with your partner, you may not feel especially motivated to exercise. But researchers are discovering that a workout is one of the most potent antidotes to stress. "Any exercise that gets your heart rate up helps lower levels of the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol," says Mark Liponis, M.D., corporate medical director of Canyon Ranch in Lenox, Mass.

Bone Health – 10 Steps to Bone Health

Bones are living tissue.  As with anything else in the body, bone health must be understood at the cellular level.  Cells need to be removed, repaired, and rebuilt on a daily basis.  Bone drugs stop this from happening, causing your bones to be brittle and shatter easily.  We have weak bones in America because of acidic bodies, NOT from lack of calcium.  The fact we must consume dairy for calcium is a complete myth perpetuated by big business.  In fact, dairy is the last food you should be consuming for bone health.  The advertising (and most doctors) out there tells you to take calcium supplements!  DO NOT, unless they are from natural plant sources (most are from rock, chalk, limestone, coral).  It will cause you to rapidly calcify and deteriorate and is completely unnecessary.  Here is a list of ten steps to strong, healthy bones!

Beauty – How Toxic is Your Bathroom?

Be warned: your daily beauty regime could be taking years off your life. 

Pat Thomas reports on the chemical timebomb in your cosmetics cabinet. 

Earlier this year, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) did something amazing.  It issued an unprecedented warning to the cosmetics industry that it was time to inform consumers that most personal care products have not been safety tested.

How To Treat Wrinkles Around Mouth

Aging is a natural process. As we reach a certain age, our skin loses its natural elasticity and the skin starts to develop wrinkles. Usually wrinkles develop at the mouth area. Wrinkles can make one look five or ten years older. Aside from aging, other possible causes of wrinkles are excessive sun exposure and limited facial expression. In addition, the most common causes of wrinkles around the mouth area are cigarette smoking, excessive use of straw when drinking and puckering up your lips.

51 Amazing Uses for Baking Soda

I don’t mean to sound seditious here, but I have a rebellious plan to combat the ills that many corporations are perpetrating in the name of fighting grime and germs. My main gripe is about the environmental pollutants from cleaning and personal care products that we wash down our drains and into our water systems, resulting in situations like the chemical triclosan (a pesticide added to many products as an antibacterial agent) being found in dolphins.

The growing list of dangerous ingredients


Your dressing table or bathroom cabinet could be one of the most dangerous corners of your home!  Lurking within these areas, where perhaps all of your favourite beauty products are kept, is a complete stockpile of toxicity. 

The growing list of dangerous ingredients that manufacturers add to their products is turning the most 'innocent-looking' shampoos, moisturisers and so-called ‘skin nourishing’ products into cocktails of toxins that build up to cause cancer or reproductive damage over years of sustained use.  Modern cosmetics and make-up also contain a host of toxic ingredients, which would be more at home in a test tube than in our bodies!  Some of the worst offenders are often the most expensive skin care products.

The Secret to Health

I am really excited to share with you my conclusions from years of research. I just revealed one of the most overlooked and suppressed health secrets in the world (at the International Conference on Science and Consciousness in Santa Fe, New Mexico) to a packed house of international scientists and natural healthcare practitioners as well as medical doctors.
Tragically, this information has been withheld from the general public and has not been included as a part of standard medical training. After fifteen years of research, I have finally pieced everything together and I am positive I have found the key to preventing disease and healing the body naturally.

Take two Music Lessons in the Golden Years

As Americans get older, healthcare becomes more challenging. It's a fact that due to recent advances in medicine, people are living longer. The challenging issue however, is that our nation's elderly are not living healthier.
Simply stated, longevity does not equate with quality of life.

Five Myths of Aging

If you were an alien visiting our planet, you might think Earthlings never age. Even as awareness about aging rises, most major magazines and television stations still fail to display vital, older people. Medical journals, on the other hand, harp on the infirmities of old age. It's no wonder we fear and even deny our own inevitable aging.
Grower older can't be avoided, but it doesn't have to mean the loss of health, mind and independence. In fact, research seems to indicate the opposite. By paying a little attention to lifestyle, most older individuals can live active, healthy lives and we can all shatter those old age myths.

Optimism and longevity

It's time to emerge from the doldrums.
In fact, you don't have any time to waste - especially if you want to add quality years to your life. Mayo Clinic researchers finally gave us the proof we need to kick our negative friends and loved-ones where it hurts the most - right in the attitude!

The Health Benefits of Cayenne Pepper

Cayenne pepper comes from red, hot chilli peppers. It is also known as the African red pepper, American red pepper, Spanish pepper, bird pepper, or Guinea pepper. It's a perennial plant that grows up to three feet. The plant is covered with bright crimson colored fruits (also known as berries) that, when fresh, contain plump white seeds.
To make cayenne powder, the peppers or fruit are dried and ground, or pulped and baked into cakes, which are then finely ground and then sifted to make the powdered spice.

What Your Eyes Say About Your Health

I’m sure most of you have heard the expression, ‘your eyes are the window to your soul’. Well, in fact, not only are they the window to our soul, but they are also important indicators of our overall health.
Eyes have many signs that tell us what is happening in our bodies.

LOW Cholesterol: The Risks, Dangers & The Reality

blood blue Victor Habbick

Epidemiological data complied from 164 countries by the World Health Organization (WHO) and from BHF Heart Stats reveal something quite stunning: people with the lowest total cholesterol levels have the HIGHEST levels of mortality from all causes. Conversely, total cholesterol levels between 200-240 is associated with the LOWEST levels of mortality from all causes. People with the LOWEST total cholesterol also have the highest levels of infectious and parasitic diseases. Those with total cholesterol greater than 200 have very low levels of infection.

The DASH diet includes fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy foods, beans and nuts. Sodium is limited to 2,400 mg per day.
Studies have found that the DASH diet can reduce high blood pressure within two weeks. These are the daily guidelines of the DASH diet:

Potassium In Foods

You need potassium in your diet because it's a component for balancing the pH of your body and for keeping fluids in balance, which is important for normal blood pressure regulation. Potassium is also needed for muscle growth, and for normal nervous system and brain function.
