5 Easy Steps To Changing Your Diet & Eating Clean Starting Today!

Published

on

If you haven’t heard of the term before, eating clean can be a little confusing. According to the BBC, eating clean just means eating foods in their natural state and cutting back or eliminating anything that was pumped full of additives and preservatives before it got to your table.

Fair enough — our ancestors didn’t have microwavable dinners, and looking at the packaging label might make your eyes pop. Some of those ingredient lists look longer than an epic novel.

But what is “whole food?”

The Clean Dilemma: What’s Really Natural?

Unfortunately, eating clean has become confusing because no one can agree on what’s truly natural or healthy. Here are the most common arguments and misconceptions.

  • You must detox: Some people who tout eating clean say you should detox first by going on water or juicefasts and do away with solid food to clear your system and give it a rest. It’s great if you’re into juicing and like drinking extra water, but in the end, your digestive system is made to digest solid food, so stopping eating altogether kind of defeats the purpose of clean eating.
  • Red meat causes cancer: Paleo proponents are all for meat, even red meat, seeing it as a key ingredient in the early human diet, but raw vegans would say although it may have been something of the past, that’s where red meat should stay, especially since recent studies led WHO to list red meat as a potential carcinogen.
  • Gluten be gone: Recently, there’s been a lot of doubt about whether people should eat gluten. Much of this stems from the fact that humans began to cultivate grains rather recently, so it doesn’t seem as natural as eating an apple, for example. Some people are gluten intolerant (see Celiac disease) and U.S. News & World Report says statistics show about 6 percent of the population is sensitive to gluten, so it is possible, but unlikely, that gluten could be “bad” for you.
  • Move away from milk: Milk comes from cows, and it’s chock full of hormones and other things that were never meant for humans. Actually, this argument has a bit more weight — according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, 90 percent of people with East Asian descent and 65 percent of the human race has some problems processing milk.

There isn’t a consensus on these issues, so for now, let your own body decide whether or not these are healthy foods for you to eat or not.

Perhaps these arguments have your head reeling, but eating clean isn’t as hard as it sounds. Actually, it’s quite simple.

1. Just Stay Away From Packaged & Processed Foods

You should know by now that frozen pizza is not going to do much for your health. Neither are crackers, cookies, chips, or most other things that come out of a box or bag. All of those foods have tons of ingredients, additives, preservatives, calories, and unhealthy fats that will make you loosen your belt a notch. If you want pizza or need to give in to your sweet tooth, no problem — just make it at home with whole ingredients.

2. If It Grows, It’s A Go

Try to choose foods that are real. Have you ever seen monosodium glutamate and red dye number 5 pop out of your garden? Of course not. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, sprouts — you can probably think of many more foods you know grow out there in the world without human influence.

3. Say “Yes” To Healthy Fats

Everyone always bashes fats, but they aren’t the enemy, nor the cause of weight gain. Quite the contrary. Harvard actually reports that a study of over 100,000 people found those who ate nuts, which are packed full of monounsaturated fats and fiber, not only had healthier hearts, but also gained less weight over time compared to people who didn’t eat nuts. Monounsaturated fats found in nuts, olive oil, and avocados help lower bad cholesterol, and are essential for bodily functions.

4. Cook For Yourself & Your Family

If you cook your own food, you’ll have more control over what you’re putting into your body. It’s also a great opportunity to make some healthier versions of the classics you crave — even raw vegans make their own pizzas, so anything is possible. Cooking will also bring you closer to your food, and make you realize you don’t need those long ingredient lists or all that added sugar to make good food.

5. Drink More Water

Don’t drink sugary drinks — drink what’s most natural, water. Needing to drink 8 glasses of water a day might be a myth, but many people really do skimp on it, so much so that they’re nearly always dehydrated. An article in the Telegraph reported that 60 percent of people in the UK drink just one glass of water a day. Although you might think caffeinated drinks like tea and coffee count, they’re actually diuretics, which means you’ll be losing most of the water you drank, leaving you even more thirsty.

Learning how to live a healthy lifestyle shouldn’t be hard — living, eating, and food are all natural, so your eating habits and diet should be too. Eating clean can help you find that healthy and natural balance.

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.

Nature Valley Ad Shows The Down Side Of Children Addicted To Technology

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Technology has impacted most of our lives in a really big way. We use it daily for everything we do pretty much. Kids today, unlike previous generations, use technology more than ever and spend much less time in nature.

  • Reflect On:

    How much is too much technology for young and developing minds? Is it time to reevaluate our children's relationship with technology and get them back into nature?

Technology has become a staple in most of our lives, really, could you imagine life without it? In the video posted below, Nature Valley asks 3 generations what it was that they did for fun as a kid, the answers from the youngest generation may or may not surprise you, but is it time to cut back on the technology and bring kids back to nature?

Technology is not bad per se, that isn’t the discussion here. This is about how we use it.

Before technology, children would look to nature for entertainment. They would play outside on the lawn, go sledding, build forts, and use their imagination to create their own entertainment. Nowadays it’s all too easy for kids to get sucked into technology, there are video games, tablets, computers, cell phones and television, all of which provide a type of escape from the real world. Although, there are many ways that technology is and has been used for good in the world, is the disconnect that it is causing children and adults to part from nature causing more harm?

With the rise of mental disorders and illnesses, is it possible that the answer to these issues is simply to get kids back into nature, more time with self, using their brains to build things, be creative and connect to the energy from the Earth? We already know how effective a simple walk or hike in nature is and how they both can literally change our brains. Nature appears to be much more important than we generally give it credit for.

In my own experience, disconnecting from technology and going camping on my own proved to be a very cathartic and healing experience for me. I’ve come to realize that although being immersed in nature regularly does have a lot of benefits, but even just making time for it at all can cause a positive impact. For many of us who live in cities, with the constant bombardment of noise and of course EMF frequencies etc., just disconnecting for a short period can make a huge difference.

The following video is a brilliant ad from Nature Valley, check it out.

It’s easy to get emotional watching something like this as it shows just how far removed the newer generations are from what has been most natural to children for centuries, simply playing in nature. The children are essentially self-proclaimed tech addicts and get their entertainment by playing video games, watching videos or tv shows, texting etc. Is it time to go back to the basics and start evaluating how detrimental too much technology can be on young and developing brains? You can read more about this issue here, Is Your Child Struggling From Nature-Deficit Disorder?

Is it up to the parents to ensure they are setting proper boundaries with the amount of time their children are allowed to use technology? Or is this the future and something we should simply let happen as a natural part of evolution?

6 Proven Ways to Cleanse Your Liver & Release Pent Up Anger

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In Chinese Medicine our liver is directly connected to anger and unfortunately, we live in a world where our liver is regularly taxed by toxic chemicals. Thankfully there is plenty that you can do without medication to keep this vital organ healthy!

  • Reflect On:

    What toxins are you regularly exposed to and what steps are you currently taking to combat them?

A toxic liver can lead to anger. In Chinese medicine, our biggest detox organ – our liver – is the organ connected to anger. When we work at changing our lifestyles and daily habits, we begin to see it having a positive effect on our mood as well as general health.

When toxicity mounts we have a more difficult time controlling or letting go of our angry feelings. Toxic chemicals accumulate in our bodies because we live in a toxic world. We microwave in plastic, we cook food in Tephlon coated pans, we smoke, we take medication, and eat fried and processed foods.

These food-like products contain toxic chemical preservatives, glyphosate; GMOs and pesticides. Ingesting poison daily results in everything from immune deficiency, mood disorders, lowered mental performance, and even life-threatening cancer.

So, besides avoiding many of the contributors of liver toxicity – what can we do?

1. Eat less added sugar & address possible yeast overgrowth in the gut

Yeast can cause fermentation of food in place of digestion and cause bloating and gas. It can contribute to “leaky gut syndrome” – thus in turn can lead to the production of toxins that may affect the brain and nervous system. Yeast overgrowth can produce alcohol as its byproduct, acetaldehyde, giving us a “hangover” feeling. It can also lead to liver damage, and it prevents the proper detoxification of other pollutants, increasing the toxicity of other toxins.

2. Support the liver with botanicals

Plant medicine like Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root can help cleanse the liver. Both extracts are known to be pretty safe and well tolerated, and toxic or adverse effects observed in the reviewed clinical trials seem to be minimal. Only those with a ragweed, iodine or latex allergy should be cautious with dandelion. (Learn more about milk thistle)

3. Drink organic aloe vera juice

High quality; raw organic aloe vera can be a phenomenal digestive aid. It seals the gut wall, aids in digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps the immune system, and detoxifies the liver, skin, and colon.

4. Cook with more turmeric & black pepper to help the body absorb nutrients better

Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which increases the bioavailability of food by decreasing activity in the intestinal tract and inhibiting the metabolism of certain enzymes. Better still, cook with lots of turmeric and black pepper together. The combination helps the body absorb more curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

This ingredient can heal gut wall permeability due to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It also aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, improves asthma, heals wounds, prevents the progression of memory loss, controls diabetes, improves liver function, lowers cholesterol, and fights cancer. (Note: A great supplement for this that I recommend for is Liver Health)

5. Incorporate liver cleansing foods into your diet

Incorporate liver cleansing foods such as green leafy veggies, avocados, apples, garlic, olive oil, citrus fruit, beets, and cruciferous vegetables into your weekly diet.

6. See An Acupuncturist

Used for thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to detox and balance the liver meridians to reduce anger and other emotional and psychiatric issues.  Simple needle-less acupressure is often used on children.
