10 Essential Reasons to Stop Dieting Today

Nearly every month, a new diet book pops up on the shelves and becomes a bestseller. If you take a quick look through them, you’ll realize the main ideas are practically the same. While there may be different foods lists, they’re all based on principles of deprivation, external rules, and focus on weight loss.

Yes, I’m sure you could lose weight on any popular diet out there. Yet, I’m taking a stand against diets because of the negative side effects – physical and mental – that ultimately leaves you frustrated, overwhelmed, and blaming yourself.

Getting trapped in the diet mindset is a terrifying place to be. You don’t even need to be following a “diet” plan per se, but over time, all the rules from past diets, magazines, or friends stay set in your head. This pseudo-dieting becomes your life where you feel tremendous shame from indulging in your favorite “guilty pleasures,” eating more than 1200 calories, or even eating when you’re not hungry.

The only way to get out of the diet mindset is to break down the rules, find peace with food, and give yourself permission to eat what you want without worrying about weight gain or letting it affect your worth as a person.

10 of The Most Functional Foods In The World Which Destroy Cancer Cells

Many specific proteins, enzymes and coding within our immune system may be activated to kill cancer cells. There is no such thing as a cancer cell that cannot be defeated by the human immune system. The difference between cancers that grow and those that don’t are what we put in our bodies to prohibit their growth. Proteins can be rendered ineffective if cells experience uncontrolled growth though damage or mutations to DNA or if toxins through food and chemical pollution override the immune system’s natural function. Here are 10 functional foods which suppresses tumour development during immune surveillance in the human body.

5_foods_tnf2Scientists have found that healthy cells damaged by chemotherapy secreted more of a protein which boosts cancer cell survival. Chemotherapy has been proven to cause cancer cells to interact with nearby tumour cells and cause them to grow, invade, and importantly, resist subsequent therapy. Where conventional medical treatment fails cancer patients, natural foods succeed.

In a study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, scientists identified a molecule, known as TIC10, which activates a protein that helps fight the disease. The protein, called TRAIL (tumour-necrosis-factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand) suppresses tumour development it can actually cross the blood-brain barrier, which separates the main circulatory system from the brain.

How to reduce your toxic heavy metal load simply and cheaply

zeolite

We’re bombarded with heavy metals from the chemicals in our environment that began in the 20th Century and proliferated exponentially since WWII.

Of those estimated 50,000 chemicals used by consumers, industry, and agriculture 300 have been tested by the EPA, with restrictions placed on only five. Mercury is in your mouth’s fillings and in the air from coal-burning power plants. Aluminum, cadmium and barium nanoparticles descend from chemtrails. Arsenic is in our foods.

You may have heard of chelation therapy, which is a bit expensive, a tad risky and requires a medically trained person to administer. But what if you can detox from heavy metals and other toxins at home alone cheaply?

The Spice That Prevents Fluoride From Destroying Your Brain

Fluoride is found everywhere today, from antibiotics to drinking water, no stick pans to toothpaste, making exposure inevitable. All the more reason why new research proving this common spice can prevent fluoride damage is so promising!

Fluoride’s neurotoxicity has been the subject of academic debate for decades, and now a matter of increasingly impassioned controversy among the general public, as well. From ‘conspiracy theories’ about it being first used in drinking water in Russian and Nazi concentration camps to chemically lobotomize captives, to its now well-known IQ lowering properties, to its ability to enhance the calcification of the pineal gland – the traditional ‘seat of the soul’ – many around the world, and increasingly in the heavily fluoridated regions of the United States, are starting to organize at the local and statewide level to oust this ubiquitous toxicant from municipal drinking water.

10 Foods That Contain Ellagic Acid in Significant Amounts

When we think of foods rich in ellagic acid, we typically think of berries such as raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries. But are there also other good dietary sources of this powerful phenolic compound that has been shown to exert strong anti-cancer and antioxidant activity in test tube and animal studies? Turns out, also several exotic fruits (such as pomegranate), a few nuts (such as walnuts), and even the Fistulina hepatica mushroom contain high levels of ellagic acid (or ellagitannins which can be hydrolyzed into ellagic acid).

Top 10 Foods Rich in Ellagic Acid

Here’s a list of 10 good, if not the best, sources of ellagic acid Mother Nature has blessed us with:

 

1. Wild Strawberries

Wild strawberries, also known by their scientific name Fragaria vesca, might well be the best natural source of ellagic acid there is. They have been shown to contain about ten times as much ellagic acid as raspberries, the next food on our list. Also wild strawberry leaf tea as well as cultivated strawberries are good sources, even though they contain much less ellagic acid than wild strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. (more…)

Myth-Melting Study Finds Chocolate Burns Belly Fat, Improves Cholesterol

Myth-Melting Study Finds Chocolate Burns Belly Fat, Improves Cholesterol

A study published in the European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences has revealed something quite counterintuitive about chocolate, one of the world’s most prized ‘high-fat’ foods.  This strangely medicinal ‘sweat treat,’ which ironically you find in the candy aisle at the pharmacy, improved markers of cardiovascular disease, including the reduction of belly fat, and only after one week of consumption.

Researchers from the Department of Neuroscience, Division of Human Nutrition, University of Tor Vergata, Rome, in a paper titled ‘Effects of dark chocolate in a population of Normal Weight Obese women: a pilot study,’ describe the effects of 100 gram of dark chocolate taken for one week (approximately a 3 ounce bar) in so-called ‘normal weight obese (NWO)’ syndrome subjects.

Why We May Need Viruses More Than Vaccines

Why We May Need Viruses More Than Vaccines

A groundbreaking study published this month in Nature challenges a century old assumption about the innate pathogenicity of these extremely small, self-replicating particles known as viruses. 

Titled, “An enteric virus can replace the beneficial function of commensal bacteria,” researchers found that an “enteric RNA virus can replace the beneficial function of commensal bacteria in the intestine.” Known as murine (mouse) noravirus (MNV), researchers found that infecting germ-free or antibiotic-treated mice infection with MNV “restored intestinal morphology and lymphocyte function without inducing overt inflammation and disease.”

The researchers found:

“Importantly, MNV infection offset the deleterious effect of treatment with antibiotics in models of intestinal injury and pathogenic bacterial infection. These data indicate that eukaryotic viruses have the capacity to support intestinal homeostasis and shape mucosal immunity, similarly to commensal bacteria.”

Ten Mind Blowing Reasons to Ditch Big Pharma’s Antibiotics

10 reasons to ditch antibiotics

The CDC has hailed antibiotics and vaccines as the premier medical innovations of the Twentieth Century. Most of us know better about vaccinations, but antibiotics remain a sacred cow that few dare challenge. Fortunately, some doctors and medical researchers know better. This article shares what they have to say about the dark side of antibiotics. And it’s not only overuse that’s the issue.

 

As a matter of fact, Since the 1940′s, antibiotics have become the standard treatment for bacterial infections. Most believe that pharmaceutical antibiotics are a miracle, a ‘silver bullet’ for infectious diseases and that antibiotics and vaccines were responsible for curtailing the major, life threatening, infectious diseases plaguing humanity.

 

The truth is: “Deaths from common infections were declining long before effective medical intervention was possible.” – Thomas McKeown, MD, author of the Role of Medicine.

A study published by the Mayo Clinic found almost 70 percent of Americans are on at least one pharmaceutical, and antibiotics top the list, followed by antidepressants, and opioid pain killers. So here are 10 reasons to avoid pharmaceutical antibiotics. (more…)
