Nutrition & Health – What is Good Nutrition?

Nutrition is an important subject, although often ignored by most medical doctors as secondary, somehow relegated to something that comes about by just normal day to day eating.   I’ve never been certain how they think that you can get enough nutrition from fast food restaurants or the supermarket processed foods that most people consume.   Some doctors are catching on and recommending supplements but sometimes their understanding is limited in scope.   I keep asking when the subject will be reintroduced into medical schools so that we can have truly educated health care physicians in the medical field. (Did you know that homeopathy & herbal medicine was taught in medical schools before 1920?).

An example of ignoring nutrition was when  a friend had gallstones and her doctor wanted to remove her gallbladder. . II thought that the doctor would at least give her a diet which restricted some of the poor food choices she made, but no, he said she didn’t have to change her diet despite not having a gallbladder.   I was never sure why he didn’t think that diet had anything to do with gallstones.

Here is an article on nutrition that was published in “EzineArticles.com  which gives you a overview about nutrition and supplements.   Nutrition & Health

Gluten Free Foods – the “Healthy Choice” ?

You have probably noticed a growing number of processed food products boasting with a label that says “Gluten-Free”.  It is the healthy choice.

It is interesting that a lot of people have gluten-free diets – they eat fruit, vegetables, meat – not processed foods.    But now you can actually buy ‘gluten-free’ pizza among many other gluten-free foods – cookies, cereals, breads, etc.

What does this all mean?   I decided to find out and here is an article on this

A Balanced Diet – How do you start?

Been doing a lot of study lately on the type of foods we should be eating, and what it will do for health.

It’s much better to eat a good diet, then to deal with the consequences of nutritional deficiencies and the health problems they create.   Underlying all else should be a good diet.

Support a Healthy Digestive System

The combination of the Apple Cider Vinegar Plus and the Gallbladder Formula is the best attack against bloating, indigestion and many other digestive weakness.

Taking 2-4 acidifiers (Apple Cider Vinegar Plus) before each meal will start the breakdown of proteins and the absorption of minerals. Then taking 1 Gallbladder Formula after each meal will finish off the digestion by adding key factors to improve bile release as well as pancreatic enzyme release. Having complete digestion from stomach all the way down will enhanced nutrient absorption and overall health.

What is Inflammation? Why is it necessary and how to combat chronic inflammation

What is Inflammation?

We hear so often about inflammation. There is even a drug commerical which states that it will “block the source of inflammation”. Makes one wonder what causes the inflammation and why isn’t that being targetsd?

Let’s first find out what inflammation is

Why is it necessary and how to combat chronic inflammation

Inflammation refers to your body’s response when fighting against things that can harm it, such as infections, injuries, and toxins. The response is in order to protect the body so it can repair injuries and to fight invaders, such as bacteria and viruses

You can think of inflammation as the body’s natural response to protect itself against harm. It’s a big part of how our body recovers after facing disease or injury.

This response includes the release of antibodies and proteins, as well as increased blood flow to the damaged area. The whole process usually lasts for a few hours or days in the case of acute inflammation.

There are two types: acute and chronic

Do Drugs Save Lives?

I’ve heard people say this.  It really doesn’t seem to be a thought out comment but one which “everybody knows”.  I will sometimes hear it when I recommend natural medicine or remedy.

My question will be  – Why would you take a petrochemical pharmaceutical instead of natural medicine?  The answer – Because drugs save lives?

Well, when a person has neglected their health to the point where they are about to succumb to a bad infection due to a compromised immune system or succumb to heart disease, or any other ailment, it will save their life – well it will extend their life.   But, that is the point at which you need to start building health. And actually building health is a good idea to do before you need to have your life saved by taking drugs.

But my question is why you would take a drug when there are so many alternatives that are safe and work just as well.  Why are people so afraid for their health that they would get a “flu shot” or take a “mold” based product (better known as penicillin)?  What is the matter with their immune system?  Yes, the flu can be very detrimental to someone with a  compromised immune system. But what happened that their immune system became compromised.

The missing step is maintaining health, and building health if it is compromised.

I haven’t known many medical doctors who will give you any advice on being healthy other than to tell you to exercise and to eat a healthy diet.  A medical doctor works to help you maintain your disease once you have one, so it doesn’t get any worse.  They are not in the business of building health.

So, maybe the right approach is building health and not eating what has been referred to as S.A.D. – the Standard American Diet.

Find out what your body needs to be healthy and make sure that you get all the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the foods that you eat. Or supplement if you can not get enough.   Eat for your health, not for your taste buds.

The Cause of Your Neuropathy, is it Unknown?

I’ve been talking to people about their neuropathy for 13 years.  I recently offered a quiz to help people to know what can make the neuropathy worse, or what will slow down building healthy nerves when taking supplements.  (Here is the quiz, if you are interested – Quiz 

One thing that I get often is that the cause of their neuropathy (nerve damage) is unknown.   Not only does that bother me as they could be doing something everyday that creates more nerve damage, but I don’t understand why the cause can’t be found.

So, on that note, here is an article where all the causes of nerve damage is listed.

Causes of Neuropathy (Risk Factors)

And here are some articles on some of the major causes  Article on Causes of Neuropathy

If you, for any reason, no of another cause, please tell me.  I want to research it and put it on this list
