millie says calibrate the span of life and health

calibrate the span of life and health. currently north americans suffer most from preventable ‘illnesses of excess’ related to smoking, drinking, poor diets, stress and lack of exercise. Some of these conditions include metabolic syndrome, heart disease, depression, kidney diseases, diabetes type II, infertility and certain cancers. we are living longer but suffering more chronically resulting in a life though lengthy, not necessarily happy. Canada currently ranks 10th on the map of merriment while the land-of-the-free-home-of-the-brave is way down the list at number 23. trudging moderately through the wasteful mounds of temptation to find long-lasting wellbeing as lightness at the end of the tunnel can be achieved by OWNING this chart of science simplified. I said O-W-N it.

millie says cooks the reds

cook the reds. lycopene, a bright red phytochemical related to beta carotene (double-bond-vitamin A) has been singled out a quencher of radical oxygen species, surmounting those abilities in Vitamin E by 100 times. finally providing another benefit for mass-pasteurization of food, this juicey red pigment becomes bio-active only when cooked because it is not destroyed in boiling water, concentrates when water evaporates, binds to fibre and fat…so the more processed the tomato product theoretically the more lycopene available to the crimson-eater . while studies are up in the air as to its benefit for the following diseases: osteoporosis, cardiovascular, diabetes, cancer and male infertility, it remains a stable reason why red fruits and vegetables are encouraged eating material. though cooked watermelon pink grapefruit, pink guava and papaya might not be your thang, although delectable in jams, jellies and pasteurized juices, simmer red bell peppers and tomatoes in olive oil for assimilation is a strategic lycopene-heavy side dish or sauce. or have a cup of rosehip tea a day to keep the prostate at bay.

millie says select superior salba seed

select superior salba seed. an ancient medicinal food related to the mint plant, Salvia hispanica L, was historically used by the aztecs who fed it to their messengers to give them running stamina. the white colored salba has been bred to be higher in nutrients than many other superfoods combined. nutty, gelatinous and satisfying this superseed is high protein, omega 3, fibre, magnesium, folate (folic acid), potassium, calcium, iron and vitamin C. satisfying as it cuts foods cravings, maintains blood sugar levels and encourages a positive mood, consider this a well rounded food supplement. Take in porridge, cereal, shakes, salads, yogurt, bread or by itself, 2 tablespoons reportedly contains 6 X more calcium than a glass of milk. so watcha waiting for, suck on salba.

millie says diminish dementia

diminish dementia. while Alzheimer’s cannot truly be diagnosed until after the fact of life comes death there are telltale signs that certainly make this form of memory impairment a differential diagnosis. misplacing keys, forgetting where the car is parked, repeating the same story over and over are normal results of aging although become worrisome when these events start happening with rapid frequency and affect daily life. studies show that a combination of vitamin E 400IU, vitamine C 500mg, and omega 3 fatty acids are the nutrients needed to prevent alzheimer’s, in particular. in addition to nutrients, exercising with brain sports or cross training, including whole brain puzzles, right and left brain puzzles such as crosswords, story telling, word associations, suikodo, learning a new language or playing a new musical instrument late in life have been shown to strengthen memory and minimize size of lesions in brain.

the perfect whole brain game: most people are more analytical or left brain dominant. if this is you you’ll see her spining counter-clockwise… either-way. get to her to switch direction. http://www.gizmowatch.com/entry/left-vs-right-brain-test-for-creativity-or-logic/

millie says eat the french paradox oui oui

eat the french paradox. they smoke comme des cheminees but still have lower cancer, obesity and diabetes rates than North Americans possibly due to their diets. their petit dejeune which would never be fully consumed include an egg, a toast, une creme fraiche, croissant, un jus and provides protein, carbs and little bites of sugar rather than binge doses. butter, cheese, cream, meat grizzle, swigs of wine on a daily basis and are never sans un peu d’cafe. so what gives. the small-plated meals are rich in raw olive oil, lemon, fresh herbs, local seafood, free-roaming properly fed on grassy cud providing healthy lifestyles for the animals in turn producing better meat, milk, cheese and butter including unpasteurized healthy microflora, omega 3 and 6 fats and fewer hormones. antioxidants levels are high in the french diet as they consume stacks of fresh veggies, eat fruits for desert and drink local wines. they also take their stress in stride by leaving work pour un tout petit cafe a creme with friends. so dont smoke like them but eat like them. oui oui oui.

gallbladder or no, increase your bile output. If stones are present then as fatty meals stimulate bile squirts, stones pop up like lotto 649 balls stretching the bile duct causing pain and potential rupture over time. lecithin, omega 3 and guggulipids wash stones. bitters like dandelion and milk thistle tea stimulate bile production. Overcompensate for unconcentrated bile to solve the problem of a missing gallbladder by investing in a digestive enzyme supplement with bovine sources of bile to replace paradise lost.

you are what you eat.  in Chinese Medical philosophy life force known as essence comes to us in two forms: from our parents at conception and then again on a daily basis, from food.  So if you eat food with good essence you will have good essence.  if you eat food with good chemistry, you will have good chemistry.  if you eat living food you will have energy.  if you eat nutrient-rich health food, you will be nutrient rich.  eat what you wish to become rather than what’s convenient.

Tempt yourself with the sugars of a carmelized onion. Abstaining from added sugar, artificial sweeteners, juice, pop, candy, milk chocolate, pastries and sugary alcohols for 6 weeks will allow your taste buds to return to normal. They’ll re-adjust to enjoy the natural sugars in grains, vegetables and fruit while keeping the calories out of way so you not only taste sweeter you look sweeter too.
