Diet, Weight Loss, Obesity
It is that time of year when many people go crazy for a pumpkin latte. Real pumpkin puree, spices, and maple syrup re-create this coffee shop classic without all the added sugars and preservatives. So cozy up with a movie or a good book and enjoy this fall cup of cheer.
We’ll see that nutrition and metabolism are inextricably linked; often feeding off one another, and playing key roles in our overall health. Today, we’re going to discuss metabolism a bit further. More specifically, things that we can do to transform our metabolism into a fat-burning machine.
When it comes to eating organic, and encouraging others to do so, it’s not uncommon to hear a response in the form of, “well, how do we really know it’s organic” or “it probably doesn’t even make a difference.” This is still common, but with more uproar within the past few years about the concerns surrounding the pesticides that are constantly sprayed on our foods, science is now stepping in to examine the difference.
Fight weight gain and obesity by controlling your portion sizes and eating more of the foods your body needs. This is because eating less and eating healthier are common ways to fight the bulge.
Ayurveda teaches that our mouth is not separate from the rest of our body and is in fact, a good indicator of heath in other areas. So, it made perfect sense to me that oil pulling would be beneficial to my general health. The benefits of oil pulling reach far beyond just a clean mouth, however.
Eating would make me feel good and bring me peace and calm. Trying to avoid my favorite foods would make me nervous and unsettled, and would bring my real feelings back.

A report published last week found glyphosate in a number of childhood vaccines. Now more study is needed to learn more about the presence of other weedkiller ingredients in both our vaccines and our food.
Keep in mind that absolutely no studies have been done on the toxicity of weedkiller when injected into children. The US Environmental Protection Agency analyzed Monsanto’s self-serving safety studies on the potential toxicity when glyphosate is ingested, but not when it is injected. EPA documents studying how the body metabolizes glyphosate (that is, how it moves through the body) found that glyphosate shows up in bone marrow thirty minutes after injection.
Forcing students to sit for such long periods wastes the time of everyone involved.
Bethany Lambeth from Wake County is one of those people. The math teacher had tried everything to stop kids from fidgeting, but nothing seemed to work, so this year, she decided to try out something seemingly outlandish: She convinced a private donor to fit a cycling machine under every desk in her class in hopes that it would help kids focus on their equations.
Yambean (which has the plant species name Pachyrhizus erosus) is composed of about 86 percent to 90 percent water, so it’s naturally low in calories, natural sugars and starch — and, therefore, it has a low score on the glycemic index. It’s also a good source of immune system-boosting nutrients such as vitamin C, magnesium, potassium and fiber.
We all know that healthy whole foods contain some nutrients or vitamins. Sometimes both. Sometimes more, like flavonoids, phytoproteins, or chemical compounds that help digestion or decrease inflammation. But these don’t work exclusively.

With nearly 10% of the population suffering from Type 1 or 2 diabetes, it’s time we started looking at options outside of conventional treatment. The approach Gabriel Cousens takes to cure people of diabetes is all about changing their diet. He states that research shows that in terms of health, meat eaters have 4 times more breast cancer, 3.6 times more prostate cancer, 4 times more diabetes, and much more in general chronic disease.
