Good morning to all.  Summer is coming now.  So everybody were planning to have their vacation, some planned to go to the beaches.  It’s a good thing that we could look good with that sexy bottle like body.  We will have no shameful feeling when we have to wear the bikini.  But it’s not the only reason, the important is that it will help our health to be good.  I was reading one magazine and Phillip Rhodes has good tips which I want to share it with you all.

Research in the Journal of Nutrition say a diet that combines low-carb and low-fat approaches may be better for your health than either diet alone.  Reason number one:  It works.  In a study of 20 adults, those on a low-carb/low-fat diet and those on a traditional low-fat diet each lost 6 percent of their body weight in 6 weeks.  Reason two:  Several of the traditional low-fat dieters dropped out due to “unendurable hunger,”  while the low-carb/low-fat dieters were able to stick with their protein-heavy plan.  “Protein is considered the most satiating nutrient.”  Reason three:  Neither group saw a spike in cholesterol levels, a common side effect of many popular low-carb diets (which often come with a high saturated-fat and cholesterol price tag).

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.

In going about the business of living, one thing is certain. The constant routine that structures our life may at times need a little fine-tuning. Much like a radio when we are searching for the perfect frequency, there is a desire to get the sound just right.

Here are things that may be small but could impact your health and well-being. They may make you feel better and, possibly, even save your life.

Lower your blood pressure naturally

If you are one of unlucky millions whose blood pressure soars beyond the normal, take heart. There is always hope.

Did you know there are natural ways to control your blood pressure? Tell your doctor you plan to use natural medicine in combination with convention therapy. Here’s how:

Take magnesium supplements. Studies have shown that this mineral, which is found in milk, yoghurt and kefir (a potent probiotic milk protein food), neutralizes stress-induced hormones that hike blood pressure. Take your daily dosage of magnesium or drink half a cup of kefir twice daily. This also calms the nerves and promotes good sleep.

Lose weight. By shedding 10 lb, you will instantly lower your blood pressure.

Walk daily for 30-45 minutes. Regular exercise releases feel-good hormones and promotes weight loss.

Meditate. Prayer and meditation are proven to reduce stress.
