Stay healthy with nuts and seeds

Eating nuts and seeds can strongly benefit your health. They can help your liver to burn fat, they are rich on healthy fats – omega 3 and omega 6. They gives you lot of nourishment with rather little calories – and they taste good! They are grounding and may prevent heart disease and diabetes.

Walnuts – contains lots of antioxidants and omega 3 fats. Eat 50 to 100 grams per day

walnut

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pistage nuts – rich in proteins and streoles that helps lower your colesterol.

Sunflower seeds – Good alternative if you are allergic to nuts

Almonds – Eat preferable without skin. Put in water overnight to soak ( Do not boil!) and peel the skin off.

 

Stress

This video on stress might really change your life! Change your attitude on stress from one of ”stress iss really damaging to my health” ( which only makes your body contract and make your stress responses higher” to one of ”stress is only energy, it can be used to handle this situation”. When you don´t resist the ”stress” energy it just flows through you, it’s when you resist it and judge it as ”bad” when it really creates problems.

Oil Pulling

Oil Pulling – The Habit That Can Transform Your Health


By Dr. Edward F. Group III, DC, ND, DACBN, DABFM

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy for oral health and detoxification. It involves the use of pure oils as agents for pulling harmful bacteria, fungus, and other organisms out of the mouth, teeth, gums and even throat.

How To Oil Pull

The most effective oil pulling is done by placing around a tablespoon of cold pressed organic sesame oil into the mouth and swishing the oil around the mouth for approximately 10-15 minutes and then spitting it out.

Other oils such as extra virgin cold pressed  coconut, sunflower and olive oil have been used, although sesame oil is considered one of the best oils for this practice. I recommend alternating oils every couple of days to get the full benefit. Putting high quality organic oils into the mouth has a multi-effect outcome.

First, the oils mix with the saliva, turning it into a thin, white liquid. Lipids in the oils begin to pull out toxins from the saliva. As the oil is swished around the mouth, teeth, gums and tongue, the oil continues to absorb toxins, and usually ends up turning thick and viscous and white. Once the oil has reached this consistency, it is spit out before the toxins are reabsorbed.

What Does Oil Pulling Do?

Multiple scientific studies show the efficacy of oil pulling therapy. One study shows that oil pulling with sesame oil can boost overall oral health. Specifically, using sesame oil as an oral health agent helps to reduce the amount of S. mutans (germ) count in both teeth plaque and mouth saliva. Scientists believe that the lipids in the oil both pull out bacteria, as well as stop bacterial from sticking to the walls of the oral cavity.

Oil pulling may also increase saponification in the mouth, creating a soapy environment that cleanses the mouth as vegetable fat is an emulsifier by nature. Most interesting is perhaps the ability of oil to cleanse out harmful bacteria, as well as reduce fungal overgrowth. These oils also possibly help in cellular restructuring, and are related to the proper functioning of the lymph nodes and other internal organs.

 Other possible benefits of oil pulling for oral health include:

• Overall strengthening of the teeth and gums and jaws
• Prevention of diseases of the gums and mouth, such as cavities and gingivitis
• Prevention for bad breath
• Potential holistic remedy for bleeding gums
• Prevention of dryness of the lips, mouth and throat
• Possible holistic treatment for TMJ and general soreness in the jaw area

Benefits Beyond the Mouth?

Ancient Ayurvedic health practitioners believed that oil pulling could reduce more than just diseases of the mouth and throat. Today, many holistic practitioners tout its use for a variety of health concerns.

It is believed that these oils help the lymphatic system of the body as harmful bacteria are removed and beneficial microflora are given with a healthy environment to flourish. Because of this holistic perspective, oil pulling has been used as a preventative health measure for many other conditions.

Other possible benefits of oil pulling for overall health include:

• Migraine headache relief
• Correcting hormone imbalances
• Reducing inflammation of arthritis
• May help with gastro-enteritis
• Aids in the reduction of eczema
• May reduce symptoms of bronchitis
• Helps support normal kidney function
• May help reduce sinus congestion
• Some people report improved vision
• Helps reduce insomnia
• Reduced hangover after alcohol consumption
• Aids in reducing pain
• Reduces the symptoms of allergies
• Helps detoxify the body of harmful metals and organisms

Scientific Studies on Sesame Oil and Oil Pulling

Sesame oil is particularly high in the antioxidantssesamol, sesamin, and sesamolin. It also holds a high concentration of Vitamin E and polyunsaturated fatty acids. These antioxidants have been found to stop the absorption of negative forms of cholesterol in the liver. Multiple studies have shown the antibacterial capacities of sesame oil. These studies support the use of oil pulling in the prevention of dental cavities and gingivitis.

A 2007 study looking into the effect of oil pulling (with sunflower oil) on plaque and gingivitis on oral soft and hard tissues. Results found that after 45 days of oil pulling, subjects showed a statistically significant reduction in gingivitis.

Another study , conducted in 2008 found a “remarkable reduction in the total count of bacteria” in the mouth, and an overall marked reduction in susceptibility dental cavities. The antibacterial activity of sesame oil was also studied and found to have an effect on the Streptococcus mutans in the mouth.

In fact, these studies showed an overall reduction of bacteria from 10 to 33.4% in participants, and after 40 days of oil-pulling, participants were found to show 20% in average reduction in oral bacteria. Moreover, half of all participants in this case study showed a drastic reduction in susceptibility to dental caries.

Weightcontrol

Getting rid of body fat can be a long process. You might be eating right and exercise, but the body fat is just not coming off quickly enough.

As we get older, our metabolism slows down, which makes it harder to convert fat into energy. One key to lowering your body fat by boosting the rate at which your body burns calories is to use metabolism boosting supplements. One of the following supplements may even encourage your body to favor fat as your energy source.

I use all the supplements below to achieve optimal fat loss. As usual, please consult a holistic or sports nutritionist or doctor before making major changes to your diet.

1. Chromium Picolinate

This supplement is a combination of chromium and picolinic acid. Chromium is directly involved in carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. However, chromium is not something we get enough of in our modern diet. Yet, it is essential for sustaining normal insulin levels. Picolinate is added to the chromium for optimum absorption.

Why does it work?

Chromium picolinate aids in breaking down and metabolizing fat, thus regulating the fat-production processes in the body, preventing excess fat from forming. It may also aid in the development and conservation of lean muscle while dieting. Additionally, it is said to increase serotonin production, which helps to reduce appetite.

How much should I take?

The average person is said to get about 33mcg per day. The FDA recommended amount is 130mcg. For optimal fat burning, I take 600 mcg per day.

Where is chromium found naturally?

Broccoli is the food that contains the highest amount of chromium. However, a ½ cup serving only provides 11 mcg of chromium. That is a lot of broccoli to eat to reach the recommended intake amount! The next in line is grape juice, delivering 8 mcg per cup. Might not be a good choice as grape juice is high in sugar, which converts to fat pretty quickly.

2. CLA (conjugated linoleic acid)

CLA is a natural occurring omega-6 related fatty acid. It helps the body increase metabolic rates, boost the immune system and keep cholesterol levels in check.

Additionally, CLA is found not only to reduce body fat, but to increase muscle strength and exercise endurance. Some findings suggest that CLA reduces the risk of breast cancer, improves immune system function, and decreases risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and even allergies.

Why does it work?

CLA allows the body to burn fat more efficiently. It won’t reduce body fat, but it keeps fat cells from getting bigger. This will alter the body’s fat to muscle ratio, resulting in more lean muscle and less body fat. One would think increasing fatty acids would lead to more fat, but it doesn’t always work that way.

How much should I take?

To receive the fat reduction benefits, it ‘s recommended to take at least 3,400 mg per day. I personally take 2,000 mg per day.

Where is it found?

CLA is found in low levels in beef, lamb, whole milk, eggs an other dairy products. It cannot be produced by the human body. In order to get high amounts of CLA from food, you would have to eat a lot of high fat foods as listed above.  So, the best solution for getting adequate amounts of CLA is through supplementation that includes a balance of safflower, linseed or flaxseed oils.

3. L-carnitine

L-carnitine is a metabolite, a building block for protein, which helps your body convert fat into energy more quickly. By speeding up the conversion rate, you burn fat calories faster each day. It’s used not only to aid fat loss, but also as an antioxidant. L-carnitine is commonly used to treat heart conditions, peripheral vascular disease, diabetic neuropathy, Alzheimer’s, kidney disease, hyperthyroidism and to increase sperm production.

Why does it work?

The fatty acids that are delivered to the cells from the circulatory system need L-carnitine to carry them through the mitochondria’s cell membrane. Fatty acids are broken down in the mitochondria to produce energy for cell functions. So L-carnitine assists fat loss by shuttling more fatty acids into the cell’s mitochondria to be used for energy. Because of this, L-carnitine ensures that less fat gets stored as body fat.

Additionally, L-carnitine also works as a detoxifier as it latches on to short-chain-fatty-acid waste products and shuttles them out of the mitochondria, allowing your body to more efficiently output energy.

How much do I need?

A person that eats meat regularly consumes from 100 – 300mg of L-carnitine daily. For purposes of weight/fat loss, you would need to take at least 500mg daily to see fat loss. I take 2,000 mg per day when I am reducing fat.

Where does it come from?

L-carnitine is derived mainly from muscles, kidneys, and livers of animals, such as beef, chicken, sheep, lamb, and rabbit. You can get it from plant sources as well, but the levels are very low. Avocado, alfalfa, and wheat germ contain less than 2 mg per 100 g of the edible portions.

4. Omega 3, 6, 9

Omegas are essential fatty acids (EFA). They are effective in weight loss by helping to stabilize your mood and keep your energy up. Omega fatty acids can also suppress appetite which helps in weight loss. Additionally, they have been found to block the genes that produce fat in the body and increase thermogenesis. Thermogenesis is basically heating your internal temperature to burn calories at a higher rate. You need this to keep your body functioning properly when you’re operating on a calorie deficit diet .

Why does it work?

In simple terms, you need good fat to release bad fat. This is where Omega 3, 6, and 9 come in. Generally when we are trying to lose fat, it’s because we have too much stored “bad” fat. When we begin to cut our fat intake, our bodies want to hold onto the fat and we have a very hard time actually getting rid of it. Our body needs to know that it will still get the fat it needs to survive, so we gradually replace the bad fat with good fats- Omega 3, 6, 9! Never go on a low-fat diet without taking Omega’s to supplement the fat intake.

Where do they come from?

Omega 3’s, DHA and EPA, come from fatty fish or algae. ALA comes from plants like flax seed. ALA is partially converted to DHA and EPA in your body.

Omega 6 is an unsaturated fat found in vegetable oils, nuts and seeds. It is good to replace the saturated, or bad fats, in your diet with this one.

How much should I take?

Taking the right ratio of 3, 6 & 9 is important as we don’t want to overdo specific, even healthy fats, in our diet. Too much fat is still too much fat! Because I don’t eat fish, I take an Omega blend of Omega 3 derived from krill and Omega 3, 6 ,9 from plant sources. I stick to the 2-1-1 ratio. The recommended amount is around 1000 mg Omega 3, 500 mg Omega 6, 500 mg Omega 9. When on a low fat diet, I take triple that per day.

5. Capsaicin

Capsaicin is a natural alkaloid found in chili peppers. Commonly included in the average fat burner supplement, capsaicin increases metabolism, supports the immune system, improves circulation, and promotes increased body heat.

How does it work?

Capsaicin activates the specific proteins that are responsible for burning fat, and suppresses the proteins that are responsible for generating and storing fat. Reports show that capsaicin can remodel body fat cells into mitochondrial-rich cells that have a higher capacity for fatty acid oxidation.

Capsaicin also decreases the production of the hunger-inducing hormone, ghrelin, causing you to eat less. When using long-term, it may be able to switch your body towards favoring using fat as an energy source and increasing fat burn.

Where does it come from?

Capsaicin is present in hot peppers. It is what makes them spicy. To get capsaicin as a supplement, look for supplements labeled as peppers (excluding black pepper).

How much do I need?

To get the thermogenic properties of capsaicin, it is recommended to use 135mg at each meal.

Vanlig plastkemikalie ökar risken för missfall

Vanlig plastkemikalie ökar risken för missfall

Annons:

Kemikalien bisfenol A i plastförpackningar kan öka risken för missfall med så mycket som 80 procent, enligt en ny studie.

Nu varnas gravida kvinnor för mikromat, vattenflaskor som lämnats i solen och konserver, skriver The Daily Telegraph.

Mejla

Studien från amerikanska universitetet Stanford presenterades i veckan i Boston och pekar på att kemikalien bisfenol A (BPA) är farlig för gravida kvinnor.

Enligt The Daily Telegraph har man tidigare gjort studier på djur som visat att kemikalien är ett hot mot fostrets överlevnad. Men hittills har inga omfattande studier gjorts på människor. Tills nu.

BPA finns i plast som används till förpackningar, konservburkar och bankomatkvitton. Tidigare i år hittades höga halter av bisfenol A i dammråttor.

Samtidigt kom ett larm om att det hormonstörande ämnet kan finnas i dricksvattnet i så mycket som 3000 svenska lägenheter.

Enligt den amerikanska studien kan upprepad kontakt med kemikalien öka riskerna för missfall markant – så mycket som 80 procent – hos gravida kvinnor som ges rådet att undvika att laga eller värma mat i platsförpackningar.

Forskarna säger samtidigt att det är omöjligt att helt och hållet undvika bisfenol A – men rekommenderar att man begränsar kontakten.

Det för att kemikalien snabbare frigörs i höga temperaturer. Av samma anledning ska man undvika att dricka vatten ur plastflaskor som värmts upp i solen.

”Exponeringen är nästintill ofrånkomlig”

Rådet gäller även män. Ytterligare forskning visar att liknande kemikalier i plast verkar minska manlig fertilitet med 20 procent. I studien undersökte man kemikaliegruppen ftalater, som bland annat finns i många hudvårdsprodukter.

De kemikalierna hade dock ingen inverkan på kvinnor som försökte bli gravida.

– Det här är viktigt eftersom missfall är vanligt och den mänskliga exponeringen för BPA är nästintill ofrånkomlig, säger Ruth Lathi, som leder undersökningen, till Telegraph.

Tidigare har kemikalien visat sig farlig för barns utveckling och är förbjuden i nappflaskor inom EU.

Ordföranden för organisationen American Society for Reproductive Medicine, läkaren Linda Giudice, menar att studien av bisfenol A kan vara viktig för hela mänskligheten.

– De här studierna utökar våra observationer bland befolkningen och visar att de här kemikalierna kan vara oroväckande för oss alla, säger hon till Telegraph.

Maria Wallin, handläggare på kemikalieinspektionen, har inte ännu tagit del av den nya studien.

– Man vet att bisfenol A är hormonstörande och har en östrogeneffekt. Det finns många studier på djur där man har påvisat effekter, säger hon.

– Sedan är det väldigt omdebatterat när det kommer till vilka nivåer som kan ha effekt på människors hälsa.

Blivit ifrågasatta

I studierna har avkommor till hondjur som utsatts för bisfenol A uppvisat effekter – även när de får i sig ämnet via modersmjölken.

Maria Wallin framhåller att flera av studierna blivit ifrågasatta, och Europeiska myndigheten för livsmedelssäkerhet (EFSA) har tidigare ansett att de inte håller måttet.

På kemikalieinspektionen menar man dock att studierna är så pass många att det finns ett bevisvärde i dem.

– Den totala bilden indikerar effekter hos ungar i djurstudier, vid låga doser av BPA, säger Maria Wallin.

Eftersom de inte tagit del av undersökningen ännu kan inte Maria Wallin uttala sig om resultatet. Men kemikalieinspektionen har på uppdrag av regeringen undersökt termopapper, som bland annat används till kassakvitton, där man upptäckt ganska höga halter av fritt BPA. Samtidigt arbetar man även med ett regeringsuppdrag om BPA i relining av tappvattenrör.

– Vill man undvika att exponeras för bisfenol A så ska man undvika polykarbonatplast vid kontakt med livsmedel. Man bör heller inte hantera kvitton innehållande BPA. Framförallt bör man låta bli att stoppa fingrarna i munnen efter att man har tagit i kvitton, säger Maria Wallin.
