What The Hell Do You Mean I Should Not Eat Salad?

Lets face it…although we as humans are capable of eating everything that is presented to us as “healthy” does not mean that we are capable of digesting it. There is no faster way to alter human physiology then by altering the function of the GI system. Considering that we are nothing more then an open tube from mouth to anus, it can become very clear how simple it might be to alter this internal environment and leaving us more susceptible to the elements. We have to begin to recognize that it is the elements against us. Dirty air, dirty water and dirty soil are just a few reasons we are witnessing such a huge decline in health. It is these very things that disrupt the very systems  designed to protect us. The health of our GI system plays a huge role and dictates our level of health and vitality. It … Continue Reading

Caffeine and Catabolism

Let me begin by saying that it is important for us all to understand that although we share physiological/biological and other similarities, we have all experienced different lifestyles that are profoundly influential over our current state of health (good or bad). The environment along with our personal lifestyles and surroundings present many types of “stress” that influence every “body,” and how that “body” is capable of interpreting a stress is highly dependent upon that individuals current level of vitality ! This is important to you because there are many ideas out there as to what is “healthy” and what is “not healthy.” What I observe as painfully obvious is that not only are we severely misinformed and confused about these issues, we are completely unaware of what might be present within our own environment that could potentially and/or presently be weakening our foundations. In addition to this idea, and more … Continue Reading

Food Combining

The discomforts of indigestion are so common in today’s society that indigestion is almost considered normal. The fact that over 2 billion dollars are spent each year on antacids is proof of this. Rather than using drugs to suppress symptoms, wouldn’t it be wiser to remove the causes of indigestion? Food combining is based on the theory that different food groups require different digestion times.  Digestion is helped the most by using foods which have roughly the same digestion time. When you eat proteins like poultry, fish, meat, and eggs, your stomach secretes hydrochloric acid and the enzyme pepsin to break down the food in a highly acidic environment. When you eat starches like potatoes or bread, your stomach secretes the enzyme ptyalin (also known as salivary amylase) to create an alkaline condition. If you eat proteins and starches together, they tend to neutralize each other and inhibit digestion. The … Continue Reading

Why Is Chicken Broth and/or Bone Broth So Good For You?

I will begin by saying that the difference between “broth” and “stock,” is not much. These terms are often used interchangeably, but sometimes “broth” means from meat and vegetables, where “stock” always includes bones. Let’s begin with the basics by breaking down some of the things that most of us already know about the healing powers of “broths” and “stocks.” To keep it simple I am going to use the term “stock” as you will soon learn that it truly is the bones that provide the bigger part of the nutrients being offered. Some of these already understood benefits of “stock” include: Boosting the immune system Aids in digestion Improves the efficiency of protein digestion Provides easily digestible minerals, including calcium Improves symptoms of: joint pain, common cold, peptic ulcers, tuberculosis, diabetes, muscle diseases, infectious diseases, jaundice, cancer, food allergies, colic, maldigestion, inflammatory bowel disease, osteoporosis, pain and inflammation, cramps, … Continue Reading

10 Drugs with Great Natural Alternatives

10 Drugs with Great Natural Alternatives February 19, 2009 By Gale Maleskey, MS, RD Do you ever feel like you’re being held hostage by drug companies? All to often, people are made to believe that they have no options when it comes to taking a drug. If your doctor says you need a drug for a serious health problem, you might think it is the only thing you can do. You may feel frightened at the prospect of going against your doctor’s recommendations and seeking out alternatives. Drug safety is becoming a major concern among many health professionals. Reports to the FDA of serious adverse drug events, including deaths, have more than doubled in recent years. This is more than enough reason to do a little of your own research, before you get that prescription filled. Learn about the adverse side effects associated with the drug, and seek out some … Continue Reading

“Shape Up” shoes…are you serious?

I have been waiting for someone to bring this up! Thank-you for your great emails. I just want to ask you, I know how I feel about them, but what are your thoughts about those shoes by skeechers? The shape shoe. What the long term effects could result. I personally feel, these “shape up” shoes are ridiculous and just another marketing plow geared towards making money while creating more dysfunction.  These shoes are just another way to mask and/or perpetuate underlying dysfunctions by doing all the work. Biomechanically, through gait, we always decelerate with pronation and accelerate with supination, these shoes take that out of the picture due to their rocking sole design they are known for. Over time, this will have a profound affect all the way up the kinetic chain (ankles, knees, hips, spine) leading to injury. As well, most people, due to compensatory movement patterns developed as … Continue Reading
