The human body is a miracle of nanotechnology that far exceeds the advances of modern science. The good news is that nutritional science is unfolding new discoveries in cellular nutrition and the wonders of natural healing. Science cannot create life. Only life can complement life.
There is a world of education that needs to open for consumers. They must be able to visualize a miracle of a single cell, basic structures and functions. They must equally visualize what happens to the cell when encountering “good guy nutrients” or faced with “bad guy nutrients.” …
Who can doubt that we face many problems and ecological challenges from global warming, pollution, food production, species extinction and more on a planet with finite resources? Yet, as ecology works, all the systems are interconnected from the smallest microorganism to the largest plastic manufacturing plant.
Eco fiction is a special genre that makes a special bonding to Nature’s characters who tell their own narratives of belonging to and surviving in their environment. What better way to have a special relationship with natural characters; thereby, making an emotional connection through their trials, tribulations and inclusions of all lives in a balanced natural environment. As they share their loves for their families and communities, so will the readers feel kinship and motivational affinity to protect Nature at its best. …
Do you remember, as a child, being told by your mother to eat all your carrots because they are good for your eyes? Guess what, recent studies have shown that Mom was right! Foods can prevent eye disease, heart disease, arthritis and more.
Some Basic Science: In recent years scientists have discovered that foods contain “phytochemicals,” a fancy name for naturally occurring chemicals. They have properties that can aid in disease prevention. Scientists have identified thousands of these chemicals in the foods we eat and a single serving of fruits or vegetables can contain as many as 100 different phytochemicals.
The most commonly known phytochemicals are the antioxidants. They protect our cells from damage from toxic substances and from free radicals, a by-product produced by our bodies converting oxygen into energy. Free radicals can damage cells in our bodies and lead to disease. …
How do you know if your Nutritional Supplements Brands are Useful or Effective?
Now here’s the dilemma. As an example, let’s say we’re browsing among the frenzy of items in a health food store, and we notice a flyer with this information:
The ingredients sound wonderful with an absolute total of 670 chemical activities, very reasonably priced and we ask for it at the counter. We receive a medium sized box, take it home, open it and to our utter surprise we get a banana. …
Does this statement give you food for thought..or does it matter?
“We shouldn’t be surprised that consumers have no real understanding of food because they have no sense of connectedness with the land or farmers or factory farming — “controlled contract production” who bring them their food. Our food system has moved beyond independent family farms, food processors and wholesalers to giant, publicly held, profit margin, food processing and distribution firms which conglomerate into five or six even larger “global food chain clusters. …
Once you lose your health no amount of money will restore it
1. How much do you care about your health or others you care about? Health care can be described as diagnosis, treatment and recovery of disease, illness or other injuries delivered by health professionals within allied fields.
2. Wellness can be described as using products for preventative health care when you’re technically not sick. If you think healthy lifestyle choices are expensive, try getting sick.
3. Differentiate between two kinds of disease. …
Who doesn’t have a daughter, sister or know a young teenage girl who seems attached to her cell phone, but who is really on the leash? Who is leading whom?
There is no doubt that adolescence is a time of identity formation, social comparison, and mental development, but what happens when a dominant, changing culture imposes adult norms with no rules or limitations?
This e-book for teenage girls offers two answers: How can we stop social media from taking advantage of a rash and brash teenage brain still in development to avoid making wrong choices? …
Good nutrition is fundamental to good health. Good health is based on nutrition, a complex system requiring a total balance of macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients in correct amounts and synergy.
“It is … one of the key factors in maintaining human optimum growth and development, structure and function, immune system competence, prevention and management of disease states, as well as the establishment of a healthful lifestyle with optimum fitness and health.” (Dr. Laz Bannock, Introduction to Nutrition and Health, 2001 IICN)
The Big Picture View
About 90% of money spent on food is on processed food and only 10% on fresh food … and it should be the opposite. …
First, stop hurting your cells with harmful or empty nutrients.
There are three reasons your cells break down:
… poor biological fuel (lack of full spectrum nutrients)
… too many free radicals and lack of anti-oxidants to neutralize them
… personal immune system is compromised, less competent
What is a free radical?
You may have heard of a free radical, a common buzzword. Draw a large letter O for oxygen and inside it write a minus sign with the letter e. This quickly shows an unstable oxygen molecule minus an electron which attacks other stable molecules to gain an electron thus creating a chain reaction of free radicals. An overload of these molecules is implicated in the aging and disease process when anti-oxidants are deficient. …
Welcome to our nature’s world called PHYTONUTRITION … Optimum quality biological fuel …never a fuel shortage.
This word may not be found in the dictionary, but it’s a word that should be shouted from the rooftops.
Phytonutrients or phytochemicals are abundant micro-nutrients found in plants … in leaves, stems, and roots. Plants use them for protection from the environment, and now bio-scientists are recommending them for protection in humans.
Our botanical pharmacology contains more than 500,000 plant species. Of that number, only a mere 10% have been investigated from a phytochemical or pharmacological point of view.
Natural plant profiles support the levels of biochemicals used in human metabolism. Take the example of a class of phytonutrients called flavanoids. These are water soluble plant pigments that give color to plants. It is estimated there are 20,000 flavanoids but only 4000 have been chemically analyzed. They include terms such as pectins, carotenoids, terpenes, glycogens, coumarins, catechins and isoflavones. Their function is primarily as anti-oxidants to help protect the liver, maintain normal hormone levels and brain health. …
