Natural Diabetic Cure - A 'To-Do' List for Curing Diabetes 0

Natural Medical. Many people are looking for a natural diabetic cure but are frustrated with the oodles of information on the internet. One website tells you to eat carbohydrates and another website tells you to stay away from carbohydrates. Who should you believe for curing diabetes? Only recently has natural health research discovered some interesting studies about curing diabetes. If you suffer from diabetes, this may be the most important information you read all year. By the end of this article, you will know 7 ways to start curing diabetes. A "To-Do" List for a Natural Diabetic Cure 1. Watch the show "Biggest Loser" which encourages severely obese people to become healthy again! After recently watching the final episode, I was encouraged to see that one of the contestants cured diabetes naturally by eating healthy and losing weight. Start your alternative treatment by eating lean foods that are not processed. Foods that are whole (fruits, vegetables, and nuts) are a great option. 2. Exercising is so important in our 21st century lifestyle. Most of us have jobs where we sit on a chair all day. You should aim for at least 30-45 minutes of exercise daily. Did you know that 80% of people who combine dieting and exercising will almost immediately lose weight? This will help normalize blood sugar levels and eventually reverse diabetes. 3. Avoid carbohydrates which can be in many of the grains, breads and cereals you eat. You should drastically decrease you carbohydrate intake. Carbs turn into sugars after the body processes them. 4. Dark green leafy vegetables, nuts, avocados and whole grains are an excellent source of magnesium. Magnesium is known to lower blood pressure, relax the heart muscles, and control homocysteine which is known to trigger heart disease and diabetes. 5. Eating protein is important to repair cells' membranes. The cell membrane is extremely important to repair because it is responsible to eventually accepting insulin into the cell. Thus, diabetes will eventually be cured. Protein can be found in lean meats, dairy, nuts and supplementing shakes. 6. New studies also show that using cinnamon in your diet can also be beneficial. Cinnamon reduces blood glucose levels, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol which can all add up to a great natural diabetic cure. You should supplement 500 mg of cinnamon extract daily. 7. Finally, drinking water throughout the day can benefit your body in numerous ways. Water helps the body run more efficiently and also helps regenerate healthier cells which are not pre-diabetic. Men should drink about 125 ounces of water daily and women should get 100 ounces daily. by: Joe Barton

Maximize Your Fat Burning Potential 0

Natural Medical.Do you compete in sports for weight loss or fat burning? Are you frustrated by that stubborn fat that seems to stay with you no matter how hard you train? Many athletes are in the same boat. They train hard, lose some weight, but then hit a plateau and the fat loss stops. There are reasons for this, but more importantly, there is a solution! Often, athletes are unable to trim down to their ideal weight or shape due to factors such as: · Eating too much and eating the wrong foods · Training too HARD (YES! You may need to slow down to burn fat), including not taking recovery days · Skipping strength training workouts · Feeling stressed about “getting all your workouts in” As a former athlete, reality started settling in after I graduated from college and I needed a fitness and nutrition plan that worked! The mac & cheese and meatless spaghetti diet was failing me. I was getting a gut and I was tired all the time. I started making massive changes to my diet and finally got back to being trim and fit and had more natural energy. The changes I implemented were even more important as I started doing triathlons. As an athlete, you need the energy to train sometimes twice a day, and at the same time, you need to prevent from being broken down and susceptible to colds and flus. You need to keep your endurance up and keep injuries away. How can you do all this and maximize your fat burning potential? In my new e-Book, The Healthy Burn, I give you an effective, easy to follow plan to help you reach your physical goals. My book includes: Ø What Low Carb, Low Fat, and calorie-restricting diets don't tell you that will make a huge difference in burning fat all day long! Ø The best foods and the worst foods for your health Ø Which fats help you lose weight and boost your immune system, and which ones to avoid Ø 7 items to look for in a grocery store that can do wonders for your health Ø The lies that are told about exercising hard to burn calories and why this is an inefficient way to lose weight and a lot more! If you are looking to get into the shape of your life without getting sick all the time, you need to train smart, not hard! By Kevin Koskella

Natural Medical.Discover secrets to overcome food addictions by releasing negative thoughts and reframing with powerful affirmations, and manifest all that is yours by Divine right. My name is Tami Close and my intention is to empower women to realize they are responsible for their own health and well-being. Why am I doing this? Years ago I became very ill and wrote down the foregoing statement while reading a book by Mark Victor Hanson entitled Dare to Win. I knew that I went through the illness for reason and now am manifesting my purpose. Through this illness I was led on a journey to discover Me!—the Me! who was hidden beneath all the childhood trauma of not feeling loved. With the help of an energy practitioner, I finally released the childhood stuff and it was life-changing. You, too, can release your childhood issues and have a miraculous discovery of self. Many women suffer needlessly with unwanted pounds and I was told I am to work with women to help them love themselves unconditionally.

These healing modalities are quick and easy to use and get results. Once you’re able to see yourself as pure love, the results will be astounding!

On April 1, 2005 (No April Fools joke) I met Mark Victor Hansen and he signed my Dare to Win book. I would not have manifested these amazing things if I didn’t release my pain which was keeping me stuck. I am on purpose!! I am living my dream of helping women and loving every minute of it.

8 Proven Weight Loss Tips 0

Natural Medical. There are a lot of “crash” diets out there that promise that you’ll drop a considerable amount of weight in days or a week. I have tried a few of these, and in my experience the weight always comes back on, just as quickly since the weight loss tips given are not something that will work with your body. One thing you don’t want to do if you are actually serious about losing weight is to follow these fad diets and their ridiculous weight loss tips. After their ineffectiveness has been proven time and again, people will start to wise up to that particular diet, and will head off in search of a new craze. Lets be honest, people are always searching for new weight loss tips because they want to lose pounds and they want immediate results, but this is just wishful thinking. To lose weight permanently and effectively it will be a rather slow progress, all depending on your metabolic rate and how much you need to lose. There are however some proven tried and true weight loss tips for aiding in the weight loss process, and I can make you familiar with them. Weight Loss Tip 1 Don’t skip breakfast. Whatever you do follow this advice, because otherwise you are much more likely in fact prone to binge later in the day. Weight Loss Tip 2 Don’t eat anything for at least an hour before going to bed. Weight Loss Tip 3 Don’t snack while watching TV. It’s acceptable to eat a meal while watching television, but never is snacking at this time acceptable. Weight Loss Tip 4 Substitute fruits like; bananas, watermelon, plums, peaches, and oranges for sugary treats like; cookies and candy. Weight Loss Tip 5 Substitute honey for sugar, and carob powder for chocolate in all recipes. These taste just as good if not better when used properly. Weight Loss Tip 6 Eat more vegetables. This can even be enjoyable if you have a good cookbook like Good housekeeping's latest edition. Weight Loss Tip 7 Avoid unnecessary high calorie foods. Instead of a high calorie salad dressing for instance try cottage cheese or yogurt to improve the salads taste and peel of the pounds. Weight Loss Tip 8 Exercise at least a half hour each day for five days out of the week. Biking on a stationery bike while reading is a great form of exercise to slim legs. In conclusion there is nothing stopping you from losing weight except yourself. Get off the "I can't do anything about my weight problem" bandwagon and start dropping pounds today! By Beth Scott

Lose Weight and Feel Great 0

Natural Medical.Many people search for a pill, a special diet or some other quick fix to lose weight. The key to weight loss and good health is changing bad habits and developing a healthy lifestyle. If those new diets are not helping you, here are some tips that will. 1. Mistake number one is skipping meals in an effort lose weight. When you starve yourself your body reacts by holding on to fat. Also, when you do eat you are hungrier and are more likely to eat foods that are high in fat and calories. Skipping meals during the day will lead to eating later which will give you less time to burn off those calories. 2. Eat more often and smaller portions during the day. Plan your meals and choose foods that are good for you. Cut and slice fruits and vegetables and store them in your fridge along with other snacks like yogurt, cheese, nuts etc. 3. Stay away from junk food. Free your cupboards from foods high in calories and fat so you won’t be tempted. 4. Stay away from “new” diets. Most of them are unhealthy and if they do work it is only for a short period of time. No matter what people tell you there are no quick fixes to losing weight, it takes time and determination. Get started by choosing a healthy eating plan like Canada’s Food Guide. http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/hpfb-dgpsa/onpp-bppn/food_guide_rainbow_e.html 5. Get to know your foods and what they contain. You may be eating foods that you think are good for you but are giving you added calories. 6. Changing your eating habits is only half the battle. If you want to be slimmer and healthier you will need to exercise. Losing weight means taking in fewer calories than you need. It will be easier to reach your desired weight fit exercise into your life. Find an activity that you like and do it. 7. Log your workout schedule and reward yourself for sticking to your goals. Once you have adopted a healthy lifestyle you will become stronger and will be more motivated to stay on track. By Sheila Dicks

Small Changes to Weight Loss 0

Natural Medical.As much as many of us who are over-weight do not like to admit, it is our past and current eating habits that have us looking the way we do today. We need to make many small changes to our eating and drinking habits to reach our healthy weight. It is a long term vision with many short term goals. Understanding weight lose takes time but it is important to know that you need to consume less energy than you use in order to lose the extra kilos. The best way to ensure that you are burning more kilojoules than you consume each day is to focus one day at a time on small changes. 1) Start by keeping a food diary. It will make you aware of how much you are eating and drinking. By recording your daily intake of both meals and drinks you will be able to keep track of your calorie intake and see where to cut back. 2) Try swapping certain foods. If you like to snack on a marsbar, change this snack to a healthy snack like 8 medium strawberries instead as it could save you about 70 calories and add to your daily fibre intake. 3) Learn to read food labels. By reading food labels you will be able to work out your calorie intake and swap different brands. For example, you could save 50 calories by just changing your breakfast cereal, or save 100 calories by changing form sour cream to salsa. 4) Enjoy 5-6 meals/snacks per day as eating more often curbs your appetite and boosts your energy and improves your metabolism. The reason your metabolism is improved is that the process of digestion itself burns kilojoules. 5) Exercise will be required to lose weight and keep it off. It is via exercise that you will improve your muscle tone and trim centimetres from your figure. Without exercise your weight loss comes from lean muscle tissue. Exercise will also improve your metabolic rate. When you introduce exercise to your daily routine, start slowly. 3 x 10 minutes is better than no exercise at all. Also note that exercise comes in all forms, housework, gardening, playing with the children, walking the dog. 6) Drink 8 glasses of water a day as water suppress the appetite and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Water also helps rid the body waste and during weight loss there is a lot more body waste to excrete. If you are hungry always drink a glass of water first and wait ten minutes, you may have mistaken thirst for hunger. 7) Ask your friends and family to support you. Share your goals, talk about your goals and with support you too can start small changes that will lead to a healthier life style and weight loss. By : Angela Emde

Honey for Your Skin 0

Natural Medical.Honey is quite the amazing ingredient! It has some awesome properties, especially for people with sensitive skin. I have to admit, when I first read about someone using straight honey on their face as a cleanser, my first thought was "Isn't that sticky??". But I tried it and found that it isn't at all! Here are some great things about it: Honey is a humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture. It also has antibacterial properties and is an anti-irritant. When used on skin, it helps clean and soften. Honey helps speed up the process of healing. If you have a blemish, using a dab of honey covered with a band aid over night will help eliminate it and prevent scarring. It's great for burns too! Just take a little and coat a burn with a nice layer. My burn quit hurting in record time and is almost gone today, and that's after getting it yesterday! I'm always burning myself on something in the kitchen, so I'm thrilled to have a solution to a painful problem! Honey contains vitamin B, copper, iron, potassium, and calcium to name a few. It also has lots of minerals, these varying depending on where the honey came from. Internally, honey can be used for a pain reliever, mixing 3 Tablespoons with a cup of boiling water (basically honey tea), relieving coughs, soothing sore throats and can even help with allergies if using honey comb. Buying raw honey is the best way to get it. The natural enzymes from the bees haven't been killed by processing thus providing a lot more nutrients. I will occasionally mix powdered milk together with honey for a daily cleanser. Love the results! By Carolyn Root

Are Fruits Making You FAT ?!! 0

Natural Medical.I want to make this perfectly clear, fruits are healthy and they are good for you. They are loaded with vitamins, fiber, and minerals. Fruits have also been shown to fight against cancer. However, when we are talking about weight loss we need to take a closer look at fruits. It is pretty obvious to everyone that when you want to lose weight you watch your sugar intact, right? Well, there is a reason why fruits are called, “nature’s candy”. Fruits are loaded with sugar, fructose to be exact. This why athletes use them during endurance for energy, and why people suffering from hypoglycemia, low blood sugar, use them to raise there blood sugar when needed. That is where one of the problems is. Fruits are carbohydrates. Never eat a carbohydrate by itself. This is basically all sugar. When you eat a carbohydrate by itself there is a sudden increase in sugar in the body. This causes the body to release insulin. However, the body releases too much insulin because it thinks more sugar is coming. The insulin basically grabs the sugar/carbohydrate and stores it to fat for use at some other time. Since your body released too much insulin there is not enough sugar to support the brain function. That is why you feel tired or sluggish. So you’re fatter and dumber. So, if you are going to eat a carbohydrate, eat some protein with it, it will slow the release of the sugar. You need realize that a glass of orange juice is just about the same as a glass of soda.

Green Tea Diets - 3 Keys to Warp Speed Weight Loss 0

Natural Medical.Green tea diets are "popping" up all over the Internet these days. It is interesting that a natural substance that has been consumed for hundreds of years, has just now gained immense popularity as a nutritional supplement. Most individuals are consuming this special tea, in one form or another, to promote weight loss. More specifically, fat loss. These 3 keys will greatly enhance the fat burning properties of this wonderful weight loss tea. Green tea derives it's fat burning properties from a group of anti oxidants known as catechins. Researchers have been particularly interested in studying epigallocatechin, or EGCG. They have discovered that EGCG does indeed, provide a boost to the metabolism, that can promote a fat burning effect. These 3 keys can boost the fat burning benefits of green tea diets. 1) Aerobic Exercise Aerobic exercise is slow, steady exercise designed to keep an individual's heart rate within a certain range. This range is commonly called a "zone", and is determined by an individual's age. Researchers have discovered that the body has a "preference" for burning fat when the heart rate is kept steady in that "zone". Good examples of aerobic exercise are brisk walking, jogging, cycling, and rowing. For aerobic exercise to be effective at fat burning, it should last at least 20 minutes. 2) Resistance Exercise Resistance exercises increase an individual's active muscle tissue. By increasing active muscle tissue, resting metabolism increases. Higher resting metabolisms can lead to greater fat loss. Good examples of resistance exercises are swimming, water exercise, use of exercise bands, and weight training. 3) Acai Berries Celebrities such as Oprah have heartily endorsed the amazing health benefits of acai berries. These "residents" of the Amazon rain forests are packed with healthful nutrients. The berries have copious amounts of vitamins, trace minerals, anti oxidants, amino acids, and omega 3-6-9 fatty acids. For weight loss purposes, they are an excellent source of fiber, which is critical for proper elimination. By Michael S Hutchins

Fat Burning Natural Foods 0

Natural Medical. There is a category of food that does just what overweight people want it to do. There are actually foods that are natural fat burners. Amazingly, they are not difficult to find. The thing is that some of these foods may actually surprise you. There is a concept that has been around for some time. It is called negative calorie foods. What this means is that there are foods that require more energy to burn than they provide. Some of these are celery, spinach and apples. These are just some of the natural foods that are fat burners. There is another group of natural foods that are not fat burners. Citrus fruits are not negative calorie food burners. However, they perform a helpful function in weight loss programs. Citrus fruits aid your body in the release of fats. It also helps your body to process the fat more efficiently and quickly. Coconuts and coconut oil is another natural food that is a fat burner. This natural food is helpful in many ways. It has been used by the women of India to treat weight problems, hair and skin conditions. Fat burning natural foods are not hard to come by. Here are some examples that you can find in your super market or natural food store (if available, organic produce is preferable). These delicious root vegetables are just what you need if you are trying to lose weight. They are packed with fiber and nutrition. They include: carrots, parsnips, radishes, rutabagas and turnips. Turnips are a great substitute for potatoes. You probably already use onions. Now you can also add chives, leeks, scallions and shallots. These are very tasty and versatile in your cooking. Remember your mother's admonition about eating your greens. It's true that they're not much fun but they do burn fat. With some creativity you can incorporate these foods into your menu, lose weight and feel satisfied when finished eating. This would include cabbage, dandelion greens, Chinese cabbage, mustard and collard greens. The emphasis here is on changing your diet, not dieting. By focusing on what you eat as opposed to losing weight, you will naturally, effortlessly lose weight and feel better. By Kathryn Soloff

100 Calorie Treats For Chocolate Lovers 0

Natural Medical. How many of us have experienced a chocolate craving? I think that I can confidently state that each and every person has experienced a craving for this delicious treat at one time or another. Chocolate has this way of getting the best of us. Even if you happen to be on a diet, sometimes you just can't resist the temptation. However, what many people on a diet are unaware of is that there are countless chocolaty treats out there with 100 calories or less. What this means is that you can easily incorporate one of these snacks into your daily food routine. If you are craving real chocolate, some delicious choices include Nestle "Dark" Raisinets (one eight of a cup), Hershey's milk chocolate kisses (4), and Hershey sticks (one at 60 calories). The Hershey's sticks come in a variety of flavors, as do Hershey's kisses. All of these delicious chocolaty treats can surely cure the craving and they can do so with only 90 calories or less. Now if you are craving dairy, you can always make yourself your very own chocolate milk. Simply mix two-thirds of a cup of 1% milk with four teaspoons of light Hershey's syrup. Mix it all together and add some ice for a 100 calorie treat. And if you are craving some chocolate on the go, there are numerous products available at your local grocery store. Some of these treats include Quaker Mini Delights (chocolate drizzle multi-grain cakes), Chips Ahoy Thin Crisps (100 calorie pack), Kellogg's Special K Bar (chocolaty drizzle), Quaker Chewy Granola Bar (Chocolate chunk), Chocolate Honey Maid Delight Bars (100 calorie pack), and South Beach Living Snack Bars (Chocolate Raspberry). All of these treats can easily settle that chocolate craving with only 100 calories. So just because you are on a diet, it does not mean that you have to abstain yourself from the things you love.
