Put a Healthy Spin on Your Favorite Holiday Foods

One of the joys of the holidays is feasting on the traditional foods that are so lovingly prepared.  Unfortunately, “lovingly” is a code word for butter and fat in some households.  For many, staying healthy means tweaking grandma’s recipe to retain the flavor, but reduce the calories. There’s as many ways to do this as there are dishes.  For example, Latkes for Hanukah, can be made fresh and topped with sour cream, just like they’ve been for hundreds of years.  This year, try making the pancakes with a new twist like sweet potatoes and quinoa.  Christmas desserts like cakes and pies will be just as yummy if a few substitutions like applesauce are made to the recipe.  And those who make the traditional Kwanzaa karamu for New Year’s Day might want to substitute veggies for pork belly in those collard greens and serve Texas Caviar for good luck.  The war on obesity means waging a new battle every day.  From the time you awake, to the last tempting snack you avoid each night, you want to claim victory.  With the New Year on the horizon, getting through one of the tastiest food prep seasons of the year means

All about Calcium

Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption in the body. It helps to reduce the risk of fractures in elder patients. Adequate calcium with vitamin D3 intake as a part of well-balanced diet may reduce the risk of bone health. People who have digestive disorders that make it hard to break down and use calcium are also at a higher risk for calcium deficiency.

That’s why it’s important to try to get calcium from the food we eat. When we don’t get enough calcium for our body’s needs, it is taken from our bones.

Vitamin D plays an important role in protecting your bones and your body requires it to absorb calcium. Children need vitamin D to build strong bones, and adults need it to keep their bones strong and healthy. If you don’t get enough vitamin D, you may lose bone, have lower bone density, and you’re more likely to break bones as you age.

WOMEN AND MEN

More Energy After Age 40

1.) Begin to exercise if you don’t already

This might seem obvious, but adding some regular exercise into your daily routine can provide tremendous benefits to anyone who is feeling slow and sluggish. Simply getting blood flowing is enough to recycle nutrients and even just wake you up.

2.) Cut out simple sugars and obvious “junk” food – including alcohol

You might be surprised how much of an impact your diet has on the way that you feel. A slight tweak in diet, eliminating simple sugars, and other obvious “junk” foods is a good place to start. Another good technique is to not eliminate bad foods necessarily, but to slowly start to add healthy foods in. The idea is the healthy foods provide additional nutrients that eventually the healthy foods will edge out the bad ones.

3.) Do something you are afraid of

Part of getting older is getting stuck in the monotony of routine, and becoming comfortable with complacency. Don’t get stuck in this trap. You only get one life, and some of the most rewarding things you will ever do are hiding behind a thinly veiled lie of fear. Jump off

Bone Marrow Transplantation

 Planning Ahead

You will have to manage your personal issues and plans simultaneously so that you can pay full attention to your recovery.

 Preparation

The primary element of development is that you will have to prepare the donor for a transplant, whether you are or someone else is the donor.

 Conditioning

When you and your donor are ready for the transplant, your doctor will begin with your conditioning regimen. That means you will receive chemotherapy, total body irradiation, kill your cancer and unhealthy marrow.

 Transplant

Your transplant will take place only after your conditioning is fully complete.

 Waiting for Engraftment

Engraftment is the process in which the stem cells that has been received from the donor starts growing and developing. That means the marrow of bone and immune system are recovering. You will be closely monitored and treated for any side-effects or complications that arise. Your transplant team and the caretaker will support you emotionally.

 Recovering After Engraftment

After an allogeneic transplant, the initial recovery period is for about three months only and for autologous it is only one month. You will be under strict observation, and

Types of Hearing Loss

Conductive Hearing Loss

Definition: This type is a condition that obstructs the passing of sound coming from outer ear going to the middle ear and passing through inner ear. With this, you may need more energy or loudness to hear a sound more clearly.

Causes: Common causes of are ear infection, allergies, abnormal bone growth in your middle ear, a punctured eardrum, excessive earwax, or a fluid build up from colds.

Treatments: Traditional and modern hearing aids are effective devices to use to correct it. Available hearing technologies can also be used to treat this type. These treatments are middle ear implants, bone anchored hearing devices, and bone conduction hearing aids.

Mixed Hearing Loss

Definition: From the name itself, it is a combination of the conductive and sensorineural. In this type, you may be suffering from ear damage in the outer/middle/inner ear or auditory nerve. When you are experiencing factors that contributed to these two types of disorders, then you might have the mixed hearing loss and it is advised to immediately seek help from audiologists.

Causes: An ear trauma, active ear infection, and all the causes of both conductive

Healthy Old Age

Eat Healthy Food
The majority of adults consume more than double the daily sodium intake than recommended, which can lead to hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Most of this high sodium intake comes from food and packaged foods.
Tips: Eat nutrient-dense foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole-grain foods. Avoid sweet, salty foods, and packaged or processed foods. Remember that everyone has different dietary needs, follow your doctor’s advice on dietary restrictions.

Maintain Your Brain
One in eight older adults (age> 65 years) in the United States and some other countries suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, whereas some cognitive decline is a normal part of aging. Studies have shown that lifestyles that stimulate cognitive stimulation through active learning will slow down cognitive decline.
Tip: Never stop learning and challenge your mind. Take dance lessons, learn a new language, attend a lecture at a local university, learn to play a musical instrument, or read a book, for Muslims to try to memorize the Qur’an.

Build Social Relationships
Nearly 30% of parents who live alone and live alone feel the loneliness of the heavy. Changes in life such as retirement, health problems, or loss of spouse, can lead to social isolation.

Endocrine System

Just like other parts of the body, the endocrine system is also affected by diseases. The conditions are brought about by various reasons such as:

  • Diseases
  • Issues with the endocrine feedback system
  • Failure of an endocrine gland to stimulate another gland to release hormones. For example, you can have a problem with the hypothalamus that will disrupt the production of a hormone in the pituitary gland.
  • A genetic disorder
  • Infections
  • Tumors
  • Injuries in the endocrine gland

The most common conditions are:

Cushing’s disease: This is the overproduction of a pituitary gland hormone that results to the over activity of the adrenal gland. In some cases, Cushing’s syndrome comes about in children that take high doses of corticosteroid medications.

Adrenal insufficiency: This condition comes about when the adrenal gland releases too little of cortisol or aldosterone hormones. When you are suffering from insufficient adrenal, you tend to experience stomach upset, fatigue, skin changes, and dehydration. One of the most common conditions that result from adrenal insufficiency is Addison’s disease.

Gigantism: You are said to be suffering from Gigantism when the pituitary gland produces too much of the growth hormone. Due to the excess of the hormone, the bones grow abnormally

High Cholesterol Affect The Body

Risk Of Angina And Peripheral Arterial Disease

When the plaque starts to deposit on the coronary arteries, it disrupts the flow of blood to the heart. This leads to intense chest pain called angina. Patients of angina are at a much greater risk for heart attack. When the plaque in the coronary artery clots up or breaks off it could block the flow of blood resulting in a heart attack. Plaque build-up can also block the blood flow to your limbs and stomach- a disease called PAD or peripheral arterial disease.

Risk Of Stroke

Decreases flow of oxygen rich blood to the brain due to a ruptured or clogged artery greatly increases the chances of a stroke. Plaque deposition in the blood vessels can eventually result in a stroke because of disrupted blood flow to the brain.

Problems In The Digestive System

Cholesterol is essential for the production of bile and this forms an essential part of our digestive system. However, an excess in the bile converts into crystals and eventually into stones in the gall bladder, creating other equally dangerous side effects.

Stomach Ache

Extremely high cholesterol level can result

Real Dangers of Sugar

Heart Threat – Sugar has been shown to affect the involuntary muscle activity of the heart. A molecule found in ordinary table sugar called G6P has a negative impact on the heart tissue at the cellular level.

Excess consumption of sugar and a sedentary lifestyle can increase a person’s risk of developing heart failure. Heart failure often claims people’s lives in less than a decade after diagnosis.

Belly Fat – There has been an alarming rise in obesity rates in teenagers and small children these past few decades. One of the major contributing factors to this trend is an increase in the consumption of fructose. Fructose is an inexpensive form of sugar used in soda, ice cream, cookies and even bread products.

Fructose appears to boost the growth of visceral fat or the fat found in our midsections. When a child develops mature visceral fat early in life, he/she has a higher risk of being obese in adulthood.

Deadly Appetite – Our bodies are naturally equipped with mechanisms that tell us when to stop eating. Studies show that sugar has found a way to suspend those natural mechanisms. Consuming foods and beverages rich in sugar contributes to

Some Important Health Tests

Colorectal Cancer Screening. Cancer is a devastating disease and sadly, one that impacts many. Colorectal cancer is one of the leading forms of cancer affecting many people and often comes without any obvious signs or symptoms. Although alternating diarrhea and constipation and abdominal pain are some of the signs, along with blood in the feces, they are brushed off as being a part of living.

It is often fatal in 90% of cases, so not one you want to come down with. Early screening is going to be key as if polyps are found early, they can be removed before developing into full-blown cancer.

Lipid Profile. Finally, make sure you schedule a routine blood test at least every 12 months to get your lipids checked. From these results, you can determine your risk for the metabolic syndrome, which is a condition characterized by…

  • obesity,
  • elevated blood pressure readings,
  • high cholesterol levels, as well as
  • insulin resistance.

If you are diagnosed with the metabolic syndrome, you will be at a higher risk for conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes if you are not suffering from these already.

Healthy Packaged Foods

1. Canned beans. Opt for the low salt version if you can. Always rinse the beans thoroughly to wash away any unnecessary salt. Try to avoid beans with sauce or refried beans that tend to be high in sodium.

2. vegetables. Plain vegetables without sauces and added salt are a healthy and delicious addition to any meal. Steamables are a great choice when you’re in a hurry or just too tired to cook. They are quick and easy and leave you with little clean up. They can be more expensive, so stock up when they’re on sale. I’ve found them on sale for as little or close to $1 a bag.

3. Frozen berries. Not only are they delicious, but can really save you money. Especially in the winter when berries are out of season and more expensive. Try mixing them in plain Greek yogurt. Or serving them with pancakes or French toast. It makes a natural sweet sauce. Sometimes we thaw them in the microwave, making them a little warm to pour over our pancakes. Try topping them with a dollop of Greek yogurt too. It gives it a taste that’s almost like a crepe.

Immune System Naturally

1. “Eat healthy.” Eat a lot of vegetables and fruits. Stay away from processed foods because these tend to have been stripped of the naturally occurring nutrients. Vitamins and minerals are usually not stored in the body so you really need to eat foods that are rich in nutrients and trace minerals consistently. Antioxidants are key nutrients in increasing the body’s immunity, and especially vitamin C and the full range of B vitamins.

2. Drink alcohol moderately and responsibly. Alcohol weakens your liver and your kidney. When organs are weak, they cannot aid in the fight against infection.

3. Stay away from mass amounts of caffeine and nicotine. These are stimulants and too much of these can disrupt your sleep patterns.

4. Get adequate rest and sleep. Most adults need between 7-9 hours of sleep every night.

5. Get adequate amounts of sunlight in order to get Vitamin D.

6. Get adequate exercise. Exercise improves blood circulation and it is the blood that brings the body’s defense forces to the site of the infection.

7. Avoid sweets. Sugar encourages the growth and proliferation of bacteria.

8. Garlic has antibiotic and anti-inflammatory

Achieve a Healthy Diet

Macronutrients

Protein – Protein repairs and builds muscle tissues. People who regularly perform cardio and weight training need sufficient protein to build lean muscle mass.

Both male and female bodybuilders consume large quantities of protein-rich food to ensure that fat stores are kept to a minimum and that muscle size and strength are maintained.

Carbohydrates – Carbohydrates are the main fuel of the body. Our bodies transform carbohydrates into glucose, a usable form of sugar. The body can also store glucose in the muscles.

When glucose is stored in the muscles, it’s transformed into a substance called glycogen.

It may be more difficult to lose weight if you completely remove carbohydrates from your diet because the body needs carbs as its primary energy source.

Fat – Fat performs numerous important functions in the body, including vitamin absorption, transport and storage.

It also creates a padding around the muscles that acts as a shock absorber. Fat also improves a person’s thermoregulation and prevents too much heat from escaping the body especially during cold weather.

Excess calories from food are stored in our fat tissues. When we lose weight, we don’t actually “burn off”

Brain Food Connection

Nuts and Seeds

Vitamin E is an essential ingredient for improving our overall thinking ability. They help fight illnesses that can impact our memory with age. Thus, as we get old, we can fight these diseases. Typical nuts and seeds that we should include in our daily staple peanut butter, sunflower seeds, filberts, cashews, almonds, sesame seeds, and non-hydrogenated butter. You can take them in raw or roasted form. However, unless necessary, avoid the ones with salt as they can increase your blood pressure.

Wild Salmon

Psychiatrists and other mental health professionals recommend eating deep-water fish. Salmon is one such fish that you need to include in your diet. It contains the essential omega-3 fatty acids for healthy mental functions. Wild salmon is recommended because of its cleanliness and supply available in abundance. The omega-3 fatty acids also have anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, these ingredients significantly contribute to improving and maintaining optimum mental health.

Avocados

Avocados are a gift of nature to anyone who wants to improve their brain functioning. It is an ingredient-rich fatty fruit containing unsaturated fats. Thus, these unsaturated fats play a vital role in regulating blood flow throughout the body. Therefore,

Information of Natural Trauma Care

1. Small nicks, cuts or scratches: You can dab on cornstarch. It will stop the bleeding almost immediately. Additionally, oddly enough, spider webs work very well if you can find some. Grab a good sized spider web, blow off the spider and any other bugs or debris and wrap it around or place over the injured area. Once the bleeding stops, remove the web and clean the cut thoroughly.

2. A bloody nose: If you are experiencing a bloody nose open a bottle of vinegar and inhale deeply through your nose. Keep doing so and the bleeding should stop within a short time. Vinegar burns the blood vessels cauterizing them closed.

3. For a bleeding wound: Apply a little sugar and let it melt over the wound. This will stop the blood from continuing to flow.

4. If you suspect a blood clot: You can take the herb Dong Quai to help break up the clot but do try and seek out medical attention as soon as possible as blood clots can be incredibly dangerous depending on location.

5. Ice: Reducing the temperature drastically slows bleeding as well as helps prevent future inflammation and bruising at the site of

About Peanut Allergies

This has prompted manufacturers to label their products with a warning that they may have been in contact with peanuts or words to that effect. This puts a lot of stress on the shopper who must read every label to ensure the safety for such an allergy sufferer.

While my health has always been great and I can supposedly eat anything without a reaction in recent times strange things have happened. One of the things that brings up a reaction now is Omega 3 oil which comes from fish. My throat tends to swell and this is dangerous as it can stop air getting into the lungs.

Another incident happened at a restaurant where I had a meal with chips. As they were ingested my body suddenly turned pale and a draining feeling came over me. My son took me outside to recover in the fresh air. Feeling better I resumed the meal and when another chip was eaten I sunk to the floor almost in a faint. Whatever those chips were cooked in they set up an allergic reaction.

This demonstrates how careful someone with an allergy to nuts or anything else has to
