3 Simple Tricks To Get Rid Of Cellulite For Ever

 3 Simple Tricks To Rid Cellulite For Good - 100% Natural

Most women have the misfortune of developing cellulite at some point in their lives. A woman's body is genetically prone to the development of these unsightly, lumpy deposits of fat beneath the skin. Exercise alone does little to alleviate cellulite, and requires continuous dedication to maintain results.

Once the exercise is discontinued, the cellulite will come right back. However, there are a few ways to go about decreasing the dimpling appearance of cellulite, which do not involve hours at the gym, expensive creams or liposuction. Here are 3 tips to get rid of cellulite that will actually work.

1) Improve Circulation

Few people realize that cellulite is directly related to blood circulation. When cellulite is deposited as small fat pockets underneath the skin, those areas no longer receive proper blood flow. This allows for toxins to begin accumulating in the body.

Proper circulation is essential for everything from cardiovascular health to the growth of hair and fingernails. To work on improving the circulation, make sure to move every day. This is not referring to vigorous training sessions at the gym in at attempt to rid the body of cellulite, but rather good old fashioned exercise. 

Get the blood moving and heart pumping by adding daily walking, jogging, cycling, or any other physical activity. Deep breathing exercises are also beneficial and will get the blood flowing. Thirty minutes of vigorous cardiovascular activity three times per week is recommended for purposes of improving circulation and helping to get rid of cellulite.

Aside from working on improving circulation from the inside, you can also target areas of cellulite where you see it occurring. Rubbing, massaging, brushing, or scrubbing the cellulite can be done for a period of fifteen minutes using a skin stimulator or medium bristle brush. This combats cellulite by increasing the flow of blood to that area, and skin should appear a healthy pink color when finished. By stimulating the areas of cellulite in this manner, it allows the blood vessels on the surface to help clear any clogged or damaged tissues and allow toxins to be released, this improving the appearance of cellulite.

2) Proper Nutrition

The second of the 3 tips to get rid of cellulite is proper nutrition, knowing what to eat and what not to eat to help reduce cellulite. Some foods we eat can actually contribute to the formation of cellulite, while others help prevent or remove it. Nutrition plays a role in how our blood forms and circulates through the body. If certain foods act to thicken the blood, this will hamper proper circulation. Therefore, it is important to includes healthy foods that naturally thin the blood and keep it flowing freely.

Important foods to include in your diet to help combat cellulite include Omega-3 fatty acids found in flax seeds and fish, and blood thinning foods such as cayenne pepper, ginger, and garlic .Foods such as nuts, oatmeal, green vegetables, and dairy products contain L-Arginine, a natural vasodilator that improves circulation. Eating these foods will help the body eliminate accumulations of cellulite.

3) Reduce Fluid Retention

Chronic fluid retention is another factor that contributes to cellulite development. You can help reduce fluid retention and improve the appearance of cellulite by:
  1. Eating foods rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and phytonutrients, high in protein, and Omega-3. 
  2. Avoiding trans fats and saturated fats, sugar, and 
  3. Avoiding unnecessary chemical exposure or medications 
All these will help SIGNIFICANTLY in your battle against cellulite.

5 Exercises To Reduce Cellulite And Burn Fat Off Your Thighs, Butt

5 Exercises: Reduce Cellulite, Burn Fat Off Thighs & Butt

Several factors that contribute to the development of cellulite include gender, genetics, hormonal imbalances, fluid retention, diet choices, and the natural elasticity of the skin. Cellulite is the unsightly dimply appearance of the skin that is caused by deposits of fat cells accumulated in the connective tissue. Unlike other fat deposits within the body, cellulite tends to dimple and pucker the skin because it is just below the surface. Men rarely develop cellulite, yet it is thought that approximately 90% of women experience it to some degree. So what can we do, how can we get rid of cellulite?

Investing in expensive creams that claim to cure cellulite, or spending a ton of money for liposuction procedures are not the answers for getting rid of cellulite. There are several measures you can take to improve the appearance of cellulite or even banish it.

The key factors that really work to improve cellulite are getting your hormones in balance by keeping estrogen levels down, improving blood circulation, reducing fluid retention, eliminating certain foods that contribute to cellulite, and eating the right foods that help to eliminate it. Exercise can also play an important role in helping to achieve a firmer, smoother look that will also improve the appearance of cellulite trouble spots. Here we discuss some helpful exercises to get rid of cellulite.

These exercises can be done in just 20 minutes per day , and are recommended three times per week. The targeted ares to work on include the stomach, hips, and thighs. Begin with a cardiovascular warm up for two minutes to get the blood pumping. This can include moderate paced walking stair climbing, or cycling either on an indoor machine or outdoors. Gradually pick up the pace and work at an increased intensity for approximately eight minutes, gradually slowing things downs for a two minute cool down.

Next, work on a little strength training by doing one set of repetitions with a weight that is not too heavy, but heavy enough to give the muscles a workout. Do each of the following exercises for ten to fifteen repetitions: the Dumbbell Squat, lunges, advanced step-up, Scissors Press, and the inner thigh squeeze. As your strength begins to increase over time, challenge yourself by holding the repetitions for a longer period of time.

It is important that after each type of strength training exercise, to then stretch out each muscle you just worked for a period of twenty seconds. Then, move onto the next strength training exercise. When you have completed each strength exercise, stretch out your body by doing the butterfly stretch when the entire exercise routine is completed.

Keep in mind that these exercises to get rid of cellulite will only go so far in helping to reduce the dimpled look of cellulite. Eating properly, maintaining a healthy weight, and working to improve circulation will all go a long way towards getting rid of cellulite. By learning more about how to get rid of cellulite, you can look forward to getting rid of that unwanted dimpling, and looking good and feeling good about yourself again.

1 Weird Diet Tip To Banish Cellulite Quickly

 1 Weird Diet Tip To Banish Cellulite Quickly

Cellulite is one of those pesky little things that all women dread but most women have. In fact, up to ninety percent of women have some amount of cellulite, while it is rarely found in men. The dimply, orange peel appearance of cellulite is actually caused by a group of fat cells deposited within the connective tissue. As the tissue weakens, fat cells can push through, causing an unsightly change in appearance. Several factors can contribute to the development of cellulite, including genetics, hormonal imbalances, diet, lifestyle, elasticity in the skin, and circulatory system issues.

As far as diet goes, there are several foods that you can eat to reduce cellulite, as well as several you should avoid that can actually contribute to the develop of cellulite or make it worsen. It is important to eat foods that help balance hormones, foods that help reduce inflammation, foods rich in sulfur, foods that improve blood circulation, and foods rich in vitamin C. This article will focus on one aspect of this entire cellulite reducing diet plan. Narrowing it down to 1 diet tip to banish cellulite, we will focus on the role of hormone balancing foods.

* 1 Diet Tip To Banish Cellulite : Certain Foods To Steer Clear Of

First of all, before attempting to help banish cellulite through the use of diet, in order to achieve the most effective results, it is important that you attempt to shed any excess weight. Even though thin people can just as easily have cellulite as larger people, if you carry several extra pounds of fat, this can definitely make the cellulite problem much worse. These diet tips will prove much more effective after you've worked to lose the weight. Obviously, it doesn't hurt to try to balance out the hormones for other reasons too, but you'll see better results when you attempt the reduction diet at a healthy weight.

In our battle to get rid of cellulite, it is important to consider the hormone estrogen. High levels of estrogen can actually increase the development of cellulite. Estrogen is responsible for softening fibrous tissue, and acts to weaken the connective tissue where the fat deposits collect. Estrogen levels can be significantly increased by foods you may not even suspect, such as coffee. Coffee can actually raise the levels of estrogen by up to 70%. Other culprits that raise estrogen levels include all cooking oils except coconut oil, and anything that contains non- fermented soy, as soy is a phytoestrogen.

* Beneficial Foods In The Battle Against Cellulite

In our quest to balance hormones and steer clear of foods that raise estrogen levels, here are some foods that can assist you in winning the battle against cellulite. Eat plenty of foods that are rich in fiber, and rich in sulfur. Organic foods are also a very good choice.

Add ground flaxseed to your diet. Even though flax itself is considered to be a phytoestrogen, this is canceled out by the fact that the lignans found in flax contain anti-estrogen properties. Keep in mind that flax tends to lose these anti-estrogen properties if pressed into an oil, so stick with organic ground flaxseed and stay away from any flax oils.

Other grocery items to add to your menu are chia seeds, which are high in fiber, quinoa, and sulfur rich foods such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, watercress, hemp seeds, onions, pumpkin seeds, radishes, kale, brussel sprouts, and spirulina. Sulfur is an important mineral essential to building healthy connective tissue. It also acts to build the connective tissue and repair damage to it, thus improving the dimply look of cellulite.

* Conclusion

By following this 1 diet tip to banish cellulite, you can be on your way to improving the appearance of that undesirable, dimply look. There are also several other steps you can take to get rid of cellulite . If you are interested, for more information, check out >> Dr. Charles.

TOP 3 Supplements: Krill, Probiotics, Ubiquinol

Why do you need supplements? The reason is that most of us are deficient in nutrients (due to our modern lifestyle, method of food production, distribution and sale of food, and (over)-processing of food) and to compensate for this we need to eat large amounts of many foods to get optimal nutrition which is impossible to do so.  That is why even the experts are agreed on the need to supplement, but you need to do so carefully and wisely! 
Health Tips: Krill Oil, Probiotics and Ubiquinol are three of some of the nutrients that are recommended. "These antioxidants will help maintain your great overall health and support your IMMUNE SYSTEM."

For Krill Oil (it is best to get your Astaxanthin from supplements) select a reliable source

CoQ10 & Ubiquinol - Boost Energy & Overall Health

For probiotics - make your own yoghurt or else purchase from the supermarkets; select a natural and UNADULTERATED version, viz. no sugar, 'flavours', colorings or preservatives or any other ingredients that are not natural. Nothing more than the whole milk or skim milk it was made from, plus the good bacteria - in fact you will only see about 2 or 3 ingredients on the label.

Natural youghurt is not 'creamy' or gooey in texture - ensure there are no addition of cream, etc. to get it to taste 'creamy'.  Plain yoghurt tastes better and is a healthier substitute than say cream for your stewed apple, baked apple pie or other desserts - give it a try and see what you think?  If you need a thicker consistency, try adding some cottage cheese, blended smoothly - it will add extra protein and calcium. Test the ratio of cottage cheese to yoghurt to get the 'right' taste and texture - the one your family likes best. Once your family gets used to these recipes they will just love the fresh and lighter taste of your cooking style and additionally that discerning, food-savvyness will carry through to the next generations' 'food-psyche'. Or else make creamy yoghurt using other alternative ways.**

Similarly pickles and fermented foods such as kim chi, sauerkraut, etc. are good probiotic sources. You don't need large quantities - just a spoonful a day is all that is required. Same with the yoghurt - you don't need to consume large amounts; a small but regular (preferably daily) amount is all that is needed to keep your immune system ticking along.  You can feel it's good for you almost immediately as you don't get a bloated feeling after you have eaten these foods.  The good news is these foods are so palatable ... with the added bonus that they are relatively inexpensive!

Or you may prefer a formula that includes fiber, probiotics plus nutrients that's essential to boost your digestive system - "a formula that helps with a BROAD spectrum of issues and alleviates problems such as stomach discomfort, constipation, diarrhoea, indigestion and much more."

Take Good Care of Your EYES: The VITAL Benefits of Astaxanthin

The Importance and Benefits of Astaxanthin

What Krill Looks Like - Pink, Tiny & Shrimpy:

The colour of these shrimp-like crustaceans which feed mainly on phytoplankton, is due the presence of carotenoid pigments such as Astaxanthin.  Astaxanthin is in fact a Super-carotenoid, and labelled "King of the carotenoids", and a Super-antioxidant (cf. video below.)

Krill Oil is Rich in Astaxanthin

Health Tips Summary: As a general rule consume plenty of green vegetables and also antioxidants to mop up the free radicals, for skin, eye health, and to keep younger longer, etc. Astaxantin is 6000x stronger than Vitamin C and 550 times stronger than Vitamin E in its "singlet, oxygen quenching capacity" ... in other words Astaxanthin is very powerful as an antioxidant and outperforms Vitamin C, E and other antioxidants by a long shot, which is why it is SO GOOD for your body.

Make sure it is sourced from marine algae, extracted using toxic-free processes, and also that oxygen is not introduced during the whole process because that would negate its powerful benefits. In other words ensure the manufacturer has applied the highest quality standards when manufacturing Krill Capsules. By the way, 1000 mgs of Krill oil provides a generous and reliable source of Astaxanthin for people who are deficient in antioxidants, so this represents very good value.

FAQ's: Astaxanthin (Super-Carotenoid) - VG Video!

More Health Tips: Astaxanthin provides many other benefits in the areas of brain-care (cf. dementia, Alzheimers), heart-care (cf. heart disease), joint-care (cf. inflammation), eye-care (cf. cataracts, macular degeneration) - in other words, it is associated with a whole host of health benefits! Watch the excellent video-interview with Dr. Robert Corish above, as he replies to the FAQ's on Astaxanthin.

Astaxanthin is cumulative, so you can always decrease future doses once you have treated your immediate deficiency in antioxidants (which many people suffer from, without knowing). Nb: Regularly eating salmon does not guarantee your intake of Astaxanthin because you need to know where your salmon is coming from - farmed salmon is NOT the same as wild salmon! Experts will advice you to eat WILD salmon if you are going to use salmon as a source of Astaxanthin. The best source of Astaxanthin is unquestionably - Krill Oil

My personal experience: I started Krill Oil about two months ago, taking two or more capsules a day and I find that my hair is glossier.  It's fishier than fish-liver oil capsules only if you burp, but that's not a problem at all, given its huge benefits. I take one capsule at bedtime to maximise cellular repair and will report back further changes later. (Blog author - 30/8/2013).

DETOX: How to End Constipation?

How to End Constipation?
Yuri Elkaim, BPHE, CK, RHN & Amy Coates, RHN, BSc.

Constipation is a big problem in the western world.

According to the medical community, constipation is defined as having 1 bowel movement every 2 to 3 days. But as holistic health care professionals, we know that's absolute nonsense!

For optimal health, you should be passing 2-3 bowel movements each day! Anything less is considered constipation. If you've ever had a colon cleanse, good for you. If not, you need to read the following important information regarding constipation and colon health.

What Causes Constipation?

Constipation is usually a result of years of abusing your digestive system through poor food choices and not listening to your body. Chronic intake of foods that irritate your digestive and intestinal system eventually causes them to function at a sub-optimal level. For instance, non-foods like coffee, refined sugar, alcohol, and other processed foods stress your colon and digestive system and eventually hinder their function.

For optimal colon health, the goal should be to remove these irritating foods and provide your system with nutrients that will allow it to heal and function as it should.

Being constipated can also come about by resisting the urge to do your "business". At a very young age, we simply 'went' when we needed to go - no problem except for the clean-up our parents were subjected to. But as we age, we tend to suppress our body's natural urge to defecate. Whether it be class or work schedules or travel commitments, we've started to ignore our body's many cries to head to the toilet.

In the end, we have instructed our body that we will have a bowel movement (or at least try to) on our terms, when we're willing and ready. However, it isn't that simple because your body knows when it needs to go. Passing a bowel movement is not a logical decision, it is a primal need your body is destined to satisfy.

So it is our fault, our lifestyle, and our poor dietary choices that has led to being constipated.

Why is Constipation Dangerous?

This could quickly turn into a very lengthy discussion but we'll give you the essentials. The problem with being constipated is that your body's waste does not get to its final destination - the toilet.

Rather, it sits in your colon, putrefying and expelling more toxins back into your body. This is called autointoxication and is a serious health concern if it persists over time.

Think about it. If you were to let garbage pile up in your home for weeks, months, or years can you imagine the type of disgusting and toxic environment you'd be creating?

Well, the same thing happens in your body if your "garbage" is not regularly removed.

Over time, these endogenous toxins will be stored in your fat tissue which includes your fat cells, brain, and nervous tissue. It's no wonder there's a considerable correlation between constipation, autointoxication, and degenerative diseases!

Natural Constipation Remedies

The first thing is to listen to your body. If you need to go, then go!

Second, remove the irritating foods that we spoke about above.

Third, drink plenty of water. Constipation can also be a result of being dehydrated. Provide your body with more water and it will assist your waste removal.

Fourth, eat more fiber. The goal (from an overall health perspective) is to hit 35 grams of fiber per day. But really, are you going to count? Probably not. Therefore, simply by eating more whole foods or even following a raw food diet will greatly assist you.

The goal is to get both soluble and insoluble fiber. Ground flaxseeds are a great source of balanced fiber and a terrific source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Fifth, getting more essential fatty acids (omega-3s) will provide the lubrication required to allow your colon to pass along the waste smoothly and effortlessly. If you strain to pass a movement, that's a good indication you could use some more lubrication.

Finally, you need to follow a detox diet that will cleanse your body. If you've been constipated for some time, then you need to face facts and realize that your body is a toxic feeding ground! The only way to better your health and prevent future problems is to get the waste out of your body through regular bowel movements and other means that will detoxify your body.

You don't have to be a prisoner to constipation any longer. Allow us to show you the light...

DETOX: The Master Cleanse Exposed!

The Master Cleanse Exposed!
Yuri Elkaim, BPHE, CK, RHN
Amy Coates, RHN, BSc.

The master cleanse is a detoxification program that calls for nothing else than a special lemonade concoction and periodic salt water flushes (to flush out your colon).

The master cleanse solution is comprised of the following ingredients:
    •    2 tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice
    •    1 tbsp pure maple syrup
    •    1/10 tsp cayenne pepper
    •    8 oz spring water

And that's pretty much all you drink (along with hebal tea and water) for the duration of the cleanse. However, because lemon is acidic (before it is digested) it may wear down the enamel of your teeth. Therefore, after each glass of lemon water or the master cleanser, you should rinse your mouth with water.

This master cleanse protocol has become wildly popular in the last few years, especially since Beyonce announced it was her secret to losing weight fast. And yes, the master cleanser will help you lose weight fast because all your putting into your body is the solution above, which provides very few calories.

So, if you're looking to lose weight fast, then this cleanse will definitely be helpful.

However, what good does this cleansing solution do for your body?

Investigating the Components of the Master Cleanser

Well, lemon is great. Once metabolized, it is actually alkaline-forming, which is a good thing. It helps to detoxify your liver, loosens mucus, and stimulates your digestive system. But in our mind, that's about all the master cleanser provides.

Otherwise, you're simply drinking sugar water, which is not a great thing for people with blood sugar issues - and that's a lot of people!

Maple syrup is a high glycemic sweetener. If all you're drinking throughout your cleanse is a high-glycemic drink, you're bound to run into blood sugar problems. Therefore, we would not recommend the master cleanse for diabetics and those who suffer from hypoglycemia.

Cayenne pepper is also helpful at breaking down mucus and some even say that because it is a "firey" spice, it boosts your metabolism. Not sure how much validity the latter statement has.

But one dimension that many people don't realize is that cayenne pepper is part of the nightshade family and contains alkaloid compounds which are acid-forming in the body and can aggravate inflammatory diseases such as arthritis.

Watch This Master Cleanse Video for More Detail

A Cleanse That Actually Helps You Lose Weight While Improving Your Health.

Drinking the master cleanser several times a day over several days may help you lose weight but at what cost to your health?

If you're looking to cleanse your body and lose weight, then you need to heal yourself from the inside out by improving your internal environment, bettering the health of your colon and liver, and removing undesirable stressors from your diet and lifestyle.

The other important consideration is that simply buying magic laxative pills or a cleanse product and going it on your own will never be effective in the long term. You will most likely revert back to your old habits, eventually continue to pollute your body, gain weight, and watch your health decline.

What you (and everyone who attempts a cleanse) need is a highly supportive and guided environment that not only provides you with a time-proven cleansing plan but also a method that tackles your habitual ways of eating so that you can overcome emotional eating and finally be in control of your body and your health.

There is only ONE cleanse program available that provides you with these tools and support. Because it is so service-oriented, this exclusive 30-day program, only has room for a small number of highly motivated people who want to reclaim their health and live their best life ever!
Will you be ONE of the few?

DETOX: Why Cleanse?

Why Cleanse?
Yuri Elkaim, BPHE, CK, RHN & Amy Coates, RHN, BSc.

We detoxify and cleanse for health, vitality, and rejuvenation.

We cleanse our body to clear symptoms, treat disease, and prevent future problems. A cleansing program is an ideal way to help you re-evaluate your life, make changes, or clear abuses and addictions. Withdrawal happens fairly quickly, and as cravings are reduced you can begin a new life without old addictive habits or drugs.

Detoxification is also helpful for weight loss, although this is not the primary purpose. The body stores toxins in fat cells. When you cleanse your body these toxins are more easily released from their fat stores. Since you then become less toxic, your toxin stores (the fat) are not as necessary and, thus, your body can rid itself of excess, unnecessary fat.

How Total Wellness Cleanse™ can help you: Go Here >

Weight loss also occurs on a cleanse simply because there are fewer calories being consumed. Since weight loss boils down to creating a caloric deficit, eating less overtime is a simple way of losing weight.

We also detoxify and cleanse to rest and heal our overloaded digestive organs. This is often an overlooked, yet very important, area considering optimal health truly begins with the health of our digestive system.

Aside from the internal health benefits, detoxification can also be a great catalyst for external change. For instance, it can provide a great opportunity to reflect and re-evaluate what’s most important to you. It can serve to help you cleanse your house, your work, your relationships. After a cleanse, you will even feel more organized, more creative, more motivated, more productive, more relaxed, and more mentally focused and clear.

So, if you want more energy, greater vitality, more youthful and radiant skin, and greater health for life, then cleansing should be a regular (annual or semi-annual) part of your life.

DETOX: What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

What is Leaky Gut Syndrome?
Yuri Elkaim, BPHE, CK, RHN & Amy Coates, RHN, BSc.

Leaky gut syndrome is the technical name for increased intestinal permeability. As its name signifies, this condition is characterizes by a gut (intestinal tract) that allows far too many substances into the bloodstream.

Normally, the intestinal walls form a semi-permeable barrier, only allowing properly digesting nutrients into the bloodstream, while preventing the uptake of toxins and undigested food particles. Such nutrients are able to pass into the blood through pores located in the intestinal wall.

Under ideal circumstances, these pores are small enough to prevent undigested food particles and other large toxins from escaping the intestinal tract and causing damage in the bloodstream.

However, in the case of leaky gut syndrome, these pores widen, which allows anything and everything to pass through the (now very permeable) intestinal walls and into the blood.

This is a big problem and is one of the biggest factors behind food allergies and auto-immune diseases.

How Total Wellness Cleanse™ can help you: Go Here >

Why is Having a Leaky Gut Dangerous?

Our intestinal tract is obviously semi-permeable for a reason. If is meant to keep out certain substances then there's a reason for needing to do so.

One of the problems with leaky gut is that it allows undigested food particles into the blood. When this happens, the immune system builds up antibodies against the protein in that food and mounts a full-out immune response. The immune system is simply doing its job. If it identifies a "foreign" substance in the bloodstream, then it will take the necessary action to neutralize it.

Unfortunately, since the body has now developed an antibody army against this food, with time as you ingest this food your body will become "hypersensitive" to it. This is how food allergies develop. And the more this occurs with the foods you eat, the more hypersensitive your immune system becomes.

As a result, you become much more susceptible to environmental allergens since your body's immune system is now in overdrive and "paranoid" about everything little thing it is exposed to.

With time, a hypersensitive immune system can start reacting in a myriad of unpredictable ways. In many cases, it will actually begin to attack the body itself, creating an auto-immune disease such as alopecia, multiple sclerosis, celiac disease, Graves' disease, endometriosis, and many more.

A substantial proportion of the population suffers from immune diseases, which are often chronic, debilitating, and life-threatening. There are more than eighty illnesses caused by autoimmunity and about 75 percent of those affected are women. It has been estimated that autoimmune diseases are among the ten leading causes of death among women in all age groups up to 65 years.

However, go to your doctor, allergist, or immunologist and they will NEVER even mention the possibility of leaky gut syndrome.

According to "brillant experts" at USA Today...

"Scientists believe multiple factors such as environmental toxins, heredity, viruses, and certain drugs may play a role in causing an autoimmune disease. Stress, poor diet, lack of exercise, lack of sleep, abuse of alcohol and use of tobacco can also weaken the immune system and may play some role as well."

That's great thanks. And they can say that about pretty much every single disease as well. The fact remains that many of these "causes" are also at the root of leaky gut syndrome.

How Total Wellness Cleanse™ can help you: Go Here >

What Causes Leaky Gut Syndrome?

Well, as was briefly mentioned above, the substances and choices that stress your body and digestive system will have a profound effect on the health of your colon and intestinal tract. Refined sugars, processed foods, alcohol, medications, and stress will negatively impact the colon.

All of these can worsen the balance between good and bad flora in your colon. If the bad are way out of control, then fungi, for instance, can latch onto the intestinal walls and create irritation, inflammation, and the eventually widening of the pores.

If food sits in your colon for too long, it too will irritate the intestinal walls and predipose them to becoming more permeable. That is one of the reasons why passing regular bowel movements is so important.

Natural Leaky Gut Remedies

First, you need to cleanse your body of the foods and substances that irritate your digestive and intestinal tract. Second, you need to spend time healing your gut with nutrients such as L-glutamine, essential fatty acids, and vitamin C.

So if you suffer from allergies, have an autoimmune disorder, have digestive difficulties, or want to improve your overall health then you need to take action immediately. The longer you wait, the worse your condition will get.

But there's good news!

Now you can get the support and the time-proven system that will help heal your gut and cleanse your body of its toxins.

Why Warmer Climates Are Better For Heart Health

Richard Weller: Could the sun be good for your heart?

Published on Jan 17, 2013

"Our bodies get Vitamin D from the sun, but as dermatologist Richard Weller suggests, sunlight may confer another surprising benefit too. New research by his team shows that nitric oxide, a chemical transmitter stored in huge reserves in the skin, can be released by UV light, to great benefit for blood pressure and the cardiovascular system. What does it mean? Well, it might begin to explain why Scots get sick more than Australians ..."


This is a very interesting, in-depth research-discussion on why your heart health is correlated to your latitudinal location. Your latitudinal position determines the amount of sunlight you receive, which is very low especially in winter, in higher latitudes such as Edinburgh.

And as the amount of sunlight received directly affects cardio health (still in research but growing evidence to support this) it explains why people in higher latitudes has poorer cardio health than those living in lower latitudes or sunnier climates, like Australia and the tropics.  Even within a country like Britain there is a noticeable difference between cardio health in cities like London and those further north, like Edinburgh (cf. the north-south health divide).

Nitric oxide, NO, has many benefits but particularly for the cardiovascular system; it dilates blood vessels so it lowers blood pressure, and the coronary artery so it stops angina. It is stored in huge quantities in the skin in more stable forms such as nitrites and nitrates and released by the action of sunlight on the skin.

Weller thinks the sources of NO in the skin comes from diet, from green leaf vegetables, beet root, lettuce, etc. So don't forget to eat your greens even as you sunbathe, in order to get the most of the sun's healthy action!

As Weller suggests it is getting the mix right - the ratio of how much sunlight for beneficial exposure versus getting too much (melanoma risk) but thinks that it is more important to consider getting enough sunlight as heart disease kills many more patients than skin cancer in any one year!  In other words it is wiser to get more rather than less sunshine, especially if you live in higher latitudes (colder climates).

[ Note the inevitable link between good health and green vegetables - there is overwhelming evidence to support that these are fundamental to good health in so many ways.

This is not surprising seeing that it is only plants through cholorophyll (the green pigment in plants) that can capture the photons of energy from the sun and convert them into a form that is usable and available to the rest of the food chain upwards. Indeed if there was no vegetation of any kind, there would be no life.]

Treatment for early Alzheimer's disease

"Evidence shows unique dietary approach effective in early Alzheimer's disease

Research shows people with Alzheimer's have low levels of certain nutrients needed to keep the brain healthy

New product for the dietary management of early Alzheimer's disease

A new medical nutrition product for the dietary management of early Alzheimer's disease will be launched today in the UK after more than ten years of research and clinical trials that show it could have significant benefits for those diagnosed with early-stage disease.

Souvenaid (a 125ml once-daily drink) was developed by scientists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and medical nutrition company Nutricia. It contains a unique combination of nutrients that are naturally present in food, at levels difficult to achieve from diet alone. This includes omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (docosahexaenoic acid, DHA; eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA), uridine (as uridine monophosphate, UMP) and choline, together with phospholipids and B vitamins."
