buy into brown apricots. sulphates are one of the oldest preservatives in food, keeping everything from dried fruits to wine and beer to deli and luncheon meats to sausages to instant potatoes aged just-right for the taste of convenience. these foods made at home would contain health preserving probiotics and sea salt, but for the million-mile diet without the sulphates (sulfates), foods dont keep as long and cost more due to ‘get-what-you-pay-for’ philosophy of cost over quality. key point is that studies show it’s better to keep this nasty preservative out of the diet as it’s been linked to the embarrassing rotten egg smell emanating from you-know-where to food allergies to inflammatory bowel diseases to colon cancer. due to a string of chemical processes that create sulphur-reducing baceria in the gut, your intestines could resemble the sludge at the bottom of from a scottish swamp, and that aint healthy but capable of coroding metal tubes, let alone tissue pipes. here we go: sulphates in food and drink > sulphites > then create a poisonous waste product called hydrogen sulphide (odorous), which to humans, the compound is as toxic as cyanide > in water, it rapidly becomes highly corrosive sulphuric acid. so eat suphur like cabbage and garlic but not sulphates like orange apricots and pastrami.

level off the edge. irregular eating habits can really throw blood sugar, insulin and serotonin into a spin. not only does starvation sabotage productivity and performance it also sends mixed messages to hold onto as much permanent energy as possible (fat) and lose the mind. slow down the whirl by eating regular meals. Studies show that eating every 2-3 hours, including a healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner and 2 snacks is an effective way avoid cravings, motor agitation, nervousness and emotional instability. a balanced one-plate meal consisting of protein (beans, sprouts, nuts, seeds, meat, fish, eggs, yogurt, cottage cheese), complex carbohydrates (berries, greens, yellow-orange-red vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds) and healthy fats (cold water fish, olive, coconut, flax, nuts, seeds, avocado, nut butters) will provide a solid foundation for stress reduction. so buck up and eat.

decode lumps and bumps. lymph bodies more colloquially referred to as glands make up a parallel universe to the body’s circulatory system, following the venous circulation routes to remove debris, infection and old pathogens from the body’s blood stream. thus the lymphatic system is a major detoxifying organ system with system channels and collection depots called nodes. These nodes are found in the neck and throat, teeth, ear, collar bone, underarm and groin areas and when present as soft, swollen and tender indicate pathogenic activity in the blood stream that the body is trying to fight. Usually this activity is the result of external pathogen activity such as viral, chemical, bacterial or fungal though can also be an auto-immune reaction in that the body is recognizing proteins found in food or those created in the body itself as foreign. The white blood cells subsequently mount a tender response to clear it. In order to help clear these sore tender nodes, lymphatic drainage techniques such as hot compresses, castor oil packs, exercise, massage, drainage herbs, dry brushing can all be applied. More chronic and serious conditions can produce hard, non tender lymph nodes that may be benign or malignant tumors called lymphomas. usually a lymphoma will be biopsied to determine it’s cancer status and stage. Lipomas are non-tender rubbery growths of undigested-unutilized fat cells that have accumulated under the skin usually in areas away from the lymph nodes, though unsightly, not usually harmful may indicate a cholesterol problem. Search your body for the lumps, keep track of their appearance disappearance so you can report accurately to your doctor of choice.
