No One Values Food Anymore
Should we be asking the question are healthy foods really healthy? Society is sick and a reason is knowing why are food allergies more common now.
How has society moved away from actually valuing foods for what they can actually do and are meant to do, nourish our body and our brain. It seems the trend has been heading to making food our enemy, so to speak. Foods sitting on the shelf are no longer nurturing and healing.
What Are Antioxidants And Why Are They Good For You?
What foods are high in antioxidants? Knowing the most nutritious ones to eat is crucial for health and understanding why antioxidants are good for you.
It's important to know what antioxidants are, and I'll provide you with a different perspective as to where and how you can get those antioxidants to inevitably protect yourself against those free radicals that we discussed in the previous podcast episode.
Why We Are Designed to Be Healthy
There is nothing natural about being sick. In a perfect world, we might live forever. Being that's not the case there are numerous reasons why being healthy is important to each of us in the short term and long term for optimal health.
What exactly does it mean to be healthy, and why is sickness just not a natural state of being. No. Being sick is not natural. Being healthy is it's what we're designed to be. There is nothing natural about having a body that is imbalanced, tired, sick, and in pain. There are no so called diseases in nature. There are no animals with rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis or asthma.
Vegetable Amino Acids
What are the best vegetable protein food sources to use? Can you build a healthy body using only vegetable protein as food from protein sources?
I'd like to discuss more in detail about the real issue regarding obtaining proteins from mates versus proteins from plants and whether it's the same, you know there is information on both sides. This isn't here to sway you one way or another. The main pointed to remember here is that the proteins from meats and proteins, they're not the same.
How To Clean Your Gut Of Bad Bacteria
What should you do to eliminate bad bacteria? Most turn to probiotics, but probiotics are not a cure all for ill gut health. Knowing what to eat it key.
It's important to discuss why fighting bad bacteria in our bodies will always be a daily thing. You know, there will always be bad bacteria in our bodies, and actually that's okay. The main objective is really having a healthy digestive system. It's not to eliminate all of the bad bacteria, but having more good bacteria than bad, which I believe is done best through eating fermented foods, but many take probiotic supplements.
Why Traditional Diets Are Better
Are non western diets better than what we in the United States eat? Is the key to better health found in more traditional diets from around the world.
If we are to answer that question, we should begin to look at whether non-westernized diets have better gut health than American diets. It seems most non-westernized diets (using that term as a way of eating rather than weight-loss) regularly consume a large amount of non-processed foods. Now, these unprocessed foods are naturally fermented and act as natural probiotics, which is done through fermentation and uses microorganisms and yeast to convert the sugars in the foods into natural occurring carbon dioxide and beneficial lactic acid, which, of course, protects the foods from spoiling and can add some health and taste benefits to it as well.
The Heart-Brain Diet Is Essential Nutrition For Health
How important is nutrition for healthy brain development? It is so important that nutrition and brain development in early life is common core whatever style of eating you and your family prescribe to eating. So what is the best nutrition for brain health?
One of the most fascinating areas of brain and gut fitness is what has been termed dietary psychology. Now reflect on what this truly means. Your brain is continually 'on' in that it takes care of your thoughts, actions, your breathing, heartbeat, your senses. It is working 24/7 even while you're asleep. It's the fact that it is constantly doing something that you would understand your brain calls are in need of a constant supply of meals and nutrition.
Regulating Hunger And Satiety
Have you ever wondered how to reduce overweight and obesity? I know, silly question, but you'd be surprised at how many people want to achieve it but don't know where to begin. Do you have a healthy eating plan with snacks and how can you prepare your body to regulate your blood sugar throughout the day.
What Does It Mean To Be Holistically Healthy?
Is there a way to look at holistic nutrition as a foundation for a healthy lifestyle? The bottom line is that is formed around "healthy eating" habits and nutrition, but how do we do that? I'm going to be discussing the second pillar of health necessary to be holistically healthy, and that's being nutritionally or digestively strong.
Whether we realize it our not, our nutrition is ultimately tied to physical health. I believe it is so critical that it should have it's own pillar and could actually stand alone. Part of this is because getting the full value of nutrition is customized based on each individual's age, sex, activity level, and body chemistry; every is totally different. This in order for us to strengthen this pillar, careful attention should be placed on your diet and that you give specific focus on digestion.
Is A Vegan Diet Better?
With all of the attention on specific diets and specific foods within those diets, it's normal to question whether things like the vegan diet or lifestyle is actually health? It really doesn't matter if you break it down by philosophy or by what you may have read in the newspaper, it comes down to whether or not the foods you eat help you get to an ideal weight.
These podcasts are an extension of me sharing what I believe is the source to be healthy emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually: a strong gut.
