Use fresh vegetables, not canned.

If you have hypertension, skip carbonated drinks because most contain sodium saccharin, an artificial sweetener and form of sodium.

Cut back on coffee if your blood pressure is high.

Drink 10-12 glasses of water daily. It helps to cleanse kidneys.

Do brisk walking.

Helpful vitamins and minerals:

Calcium. It helps to regulate blood pressure.

Potassium and magnesium. Eat bananas to lower blood pressure. Potassium rids the body of sodium. Foods high in potassium are broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, romaine lettuce, spinach, apples, grapes, oranges, pears, lentils peas, string beans and kidney beans. Note: To lower blood pressure, 3,500 mg of potassium is required daily.

Vitamin C. At Tufts University, a study showed that the lower the Vitamin C intake, the higher the blood pressure. This vitamin builds strong blood vessels. Vitamin C is highest in guava, kiwi and citrus fruits.

Banish bad breath

If you have halitosis or a persistent foul-smelling mouth, it could mean: diseased gums and teeth, parasites in your stomach, bacteria in your mouth, sulfur leftover from the garlic or broccoli you ate, dirty tongue, sinusitis problems, side effect of drugs like antidepressants and heart medications.

What to do

1. See your dentist for regular cleaning.

2. Go to a doctor to eliminate parasites. You may seek state of the art beam ray treatment to eradicate all kinds of parasites. (Call Biosafe Clinic at 411-9168.)

3. Brush your teeth and tongue gently.

4. Drink lots of water.

5. If you need to quickly remove bad breath, eat something sweet. Sugar keeps bad breath away.

Salt scrub

For stubborn, dry skin on your feet, elbows and knees, soak them in salinated water. Mix ¼ cup salt in warm water. Once soft, scrub with loofah or hard dry towel. Apply virgin coco oil to finish the polishing job.

Affirm: “I am the salt of the earth.”

Love and light!

IF you huff and puff in the gym after a round of lifting weights or ballroom dancing or basketball, don’t worry. Any physical exertion is good for the body. It’s expending energy to gain energy.

The way to increase efficiency in burning fat, perspiring toxins and excreting properly is through a fitness program. Some pointers:

1. Get into a new sport, enroll in a gym, or join a walking club. Thrice a week is good enough to keep your body running smoothly. Don’t mind the aches and pains first-timers usually experience. This will gradually go away when your body gets used to physical activities.

2. Eat high-octane foods.

Suggested high-energy meal plan: High-fiber foods such as fresh fruits/ vegetables, multigrain breads and brown or red rice.

Fats provide twice more energy than carbo or protein. And the mind-boggling truth is, the more energy derived from fat, the better for your health! Sources: Fats—oils, butter, egg yolk, cheese. Carbo—high-fiber foods listed above. Proteins—meat, fish, poultry, eggs.

If you don’t watch your carbohydrate intake, you could suffer from carbohydrate intolerance (CI). Its symptoms include: sleepiness after meals, increased body fat, loss of concentration, fatigue and intestinal bloating.

Most people are unaware that they are suffering from CI, the early stage of hypertension, obesity, elevated cholesterol and triglycerides. If you don’t handle your CI well, it could lead to syndrome X, a host of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, stroke and heart disease. To rule out CI, see your doctor and have yourself tested for insulin and glucose levels.

Try this two-week meal plan. If you lose weight, avoid bread, pasta, corn, potatoes, muffins, cakes, crackers, rice, sweets, fruits or fruit juice, cold cuts or processed meats and soda or carbonated drinks.

Then eat or drink: whole eggs, meats, chicken, fish, nuts, seeds, oils, vinegar, sea salt, (not processed salt), beans, legumes, vegetables and water.

If you feel better after this change of diet, it means you could live on less carbo from now on. Return the good carbo to your diet for as long as you don’t feel the CI symptoms. This way, you can determine your carbo tolerance levels and the carbo best for you.

In the end, it’s all about a balanced meal plan to ensure your optimum performance.

Water therapy

Do you know that the more protein you eat, the more water you need between meals? So, while you’re having a relaxing warm bath, spice it up. Add a few slices of ginger and 1 cup of ginger juice. Allow it to stimulate your skin. Sip a glass of ginger tea. Put 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger in a pot of hot water, strain. Add 1 teaspoon coco nectar honey, 2 ice cubes. Enjoy!

Affirm: “My heart is big. It can contain all of life!”

Love and light!
