Good morning everybody.  Almost all of us were aiming to lose weight and get sexy especially to women.  The tendency of us when we are doing nothing is that we tend to eat.  Maybe not a hard food.  Some are eating while they are reading books, some are eating while they are watching  TV, some are eating while they are playing games in the computer.  We love to eat.  But all of us should be aware and should always be in control when eating, especially those fatty foods.

 

Before you start reading a diet book, apply weight loss approaches which have been successful for many people.   There are many books on weight loss that can teach you how to control your food eating.  There is this Bob Greene’s approach in his book “The Best Life Diet”.  It is easier to follow since it gives more time to gradually adjust to your new lifestyle. This is applicable to busy people who might not commit to a gym schedule or structured diet right away.

 

In Phase One, focus on eating breakfast, avoiding extra snacks and not eating two hours before you sleep and increasing daily physical activities like walking. This is more double than limiting the amount of food intake right away. Once you get used to your new habits, move on to Phase Two which encourages you to exercise more and eliminate at least six problem foods like pastries, fries and sodas. Phase Three is about developing weight loss skills. Recipes and sample plans are presented but the focus is still on moderation.

DO you know that any changes in your eating habits will affect your metabolic rate?

Gaining weight is deceptively easy, especially if you’re not alert. What to do?

1. When brushing teeth, scrape the surface of your tongue. Health experts believe this is the best way to reduce the amount of germs/bacteria and infections entering your body.

2. Balance the pH in your system. Drink something alkaline like a cup of warm water with a slice of lemon or 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or a glass of alkaline water.

3. For the next seven days, take a pinch of rock salt with a glass of water. Place it on top of your tongue, then drink up. Salt will help you keep hydrated. Take 10-12 glasses daily.

4. Be kind to your liver. Abstain from fatty foods and alcohol for one week. Eat a handful of black grapes; it’s considered liver food.  Eat a fresh clove of garlic (mixed with food and not alone). Or take a capsule of garlic oil after meal.  Drink a glass of pure, fresh carrot and beat root juice.  Take 2 capsules of dandelion or fennel tea.

5.  Aside from liver, the other major detox organ is the kidneys.  Go easy on commercially prepared beverages unless they are low in sugar and preservative free.  Drink coconut water up to two glasses a day.  Take a warm cup of water mixed with fresh, wild honey (from bees) or coconut honey (from coco flower nectar).  Drink a glass of cranberry juice.  Eat two slices of fresh melon in the morning. Note: Best to eat it alone and not to eat any other food 30 minutes before and after you consume it as it may cause indigestion.

First, Do No Harm

 

While it might be a bitter pill to swallow for some people, especially for the entrepreneurs marketing “food supplements,” we have to face the fact that ampalaya derivatives (pills, tea, etc.) have not been fully proven to be totally effective, by themselves, as sole treatment for diabetes, to warrant abandonment of the physician prescribed proprietary or generic drugs for diabetes. That is a fact the Department of Health and all health providers should accept.

Furthermore, the DOH must explain and qualify its new circular as clearly as possible for public safety. Not to do so would be to trivialize and denigrate the sanctity of the healer’s precept of primum non nocere (first, do no harm) in treating living beings, the basic tenet of the Hippocratic Oath which all physicians took as they were sworn into the practice of medicine. Not doing so would also be a great disservice to the patients and a potential grave risk to people’s lives.

 

The Message

The January 29, 2008 circular of the Department of Health should be carefully understood with all its medical subtleties. The fact is while ampalaya could be an aid in the treatment of diabetes, the ampalaya vegetable alone, and/or the ampalaya preparations being marketed as a treatment or “cure” for diabetes, alone and in themselves, are NOT effective enough to replace the anti-diabetic medications prescribed by the physician. Before using or shifting to this herbal alternative, patients should first discuss this thoroughly with their attending physician. To do otherwise would be foolhardy and dangerous.
