Holistic Health Tips for Common Problems

980096-headacheThere are many common conditions that can be treated holistically without resorting to pharmaceuticals. High blood pressure, for example, can be treated with a balanced diet and regular meditation practice — or another stress-management strategy that works for you.

Incorporating calcium-rich foods into your diet and supplementing with 1000mg of calcium per day, 500mg of magnesium once or twice per day and 2000mg of omega-3, two to three times a day will help level out your blood pressure.

Why Getting a Good Night’s Sleep is Essential

sleep-holistic-health“Sleep, new research reveals, is a master regulator of health,” says Pamela Weintraub of Experience Life! “A sleep deficit or disruption can create wide-ranging havoc, compromising our immune system, causing inflammation, and damaging our genes. Losing just an hour of sleep a night increases risk of cancer, heart attack, stroke and type 2 diabetes.”

“Lack of sleep can also lead to memory loss, negatively affect people’s reflexes and decision-making skills, cause hearing loss and psychiatric disease, and impede sexual function.”

Factors that Sabotage Your Diet

unsupportive-husbandHaving unhealthy food in the house is of course a great temptation. Avoid buying these foods, especially if you are the only one in your household. If you are buying them for family members, try to get their support in staying healthy.

Another regular saboteur is travel. If you are a frequent traveler, it will be tough to stick to the rules and avoid junk food. Try to pick up fruit or veggies and put a workout in wherever you can, such as at the gym in the hotel where you’re staying or simply work out in your hotel room.

Healthy Food

How to Get 5 Fruit Servings Per Day

healthy-food-the-master-cleanseIf five vegetable and fruit servings per day is the recommended daily amount, then how do we know we are getting enough nutritious produce? Servings are measured in grams, so it may not be all that easy to figure it out if you don’t have a scale handy.

However, the 5-a-day for Better Health Trust states it’s not all that complicated and you don’t have to resort to measuring devices.

Children Can Make Healthy Choices

kids-healthy-foodAccording to the latest research at Cornell University, you can make it easier for your kids to choose fruits and veggies. It’s all in the presentation. If food looks appealing and easily accessible, kids will go for it. Using the behavioral principle of “libertarian paternalism,” the researchers allowed the kids to choose of their own free will and saw positive results.

“We believe that when children take foods of their own volition, they’re more likely to eat them,” said Andrew Hanks, a research fellow at Cornell University and lead author of the study.

Detox Diet

More Reasons to Like Broccoli

1194213.large“Researchers just found out that the boost in detoxifying enzymes triggered by cruciferous vegetable consumption may last for weeks!” says Dr. Michael Greger.

You can eat broccoli days or even weeks before the big barbeque and still retain some protection. Of course if you grill veggie burgers instead it would be a non-issue. Since heterocyclic amines are byproducts of muscle tissue reacting to high heat, you can even deep-fry plant foods and still none of these carcinogens are formed.”

Choosing the best vitamins and supplements is not easy if you don’t know what to look for and what to avoid.

So how do you decide which vitamins are safe? Here are some tips to help you avoid the bad stuff.

 Diet Mistakes that Slow Your Metabolism

wrong-breakfast-329We all know the importance of a good breakfast, but what if your so-called healthy breakfast is actually sabotaging your metabolism? If you’re eating nothing but carbs such as fruit and cereal for breakfast, you are setting yourself up to be very hungry later in the day.

To avoid this, try to get about 30 grams of protein in your breakfast. This can be a couple of eggs or a container of plain Greek yogurt.

Personal Development

How to Stop Making Relationship Mistakes

1221875.largeMost of us are aware that we have bad relationship habits. Nobody’s relationship is perfect, but we can always try to improve it or find another one that works with a few of these strategies. One of the best (and most fun) things you can do is imagine and visualize.

“Nothing works as well as visualizations for the future. Start by seeing the best of you — how you walk, hold yourself, manage yourself in all your empowered strength. Next, visualize a partner who respects and appreciates you. After all, you become what you imagine,” advises Dr. Karen Sherman.

How to Defend Yourself from “Change Back Attacks”

puzzle-300x206Most of the people in your life see you as a piece of a jigsaw puzzle fitting nicely into the big picture of their lives. When you make changes in your life, even if they’re positive changes, these people might panic, seeing that their perfect puzzle is ruined.

“Women who are undergoing changes are likely to experience ‘change back’ messages from their nearest and dearest,” says Martha Beck, “The messages come in many forms: sabotage, cold silence, shouted insults, refusal to cooperate. But all convey just one idea: ‘I don’t like what you’ve done. Go back to being the way you were.’ This might seem baffling in the face of positive achievements like losing weight, falling in love, or learning new ideas.”

Foods that Prevent You from Sleeping

slide_283052_2152941_freeIf you’re finding it hard to fall asleep on a regular basis, it’s possible that certain foods are to blame. Aside from the usual suspects like coffee, there are other foods that you might need to avoid eating later in the day.

Taking Back North America’s Health

salt-sugar-fat-mossPulitzer prize winner Michael Moss has a theory about why North America is becoming progressively more unhealthy. In his new book Salt Sugar Fat he looks at the way food giants are keeping people fat with processed foods.

Moss’ argument is that in order to get back our health, we have to reduce demand for these foods by opting for healthier choices and spreading the word about the real harmful effect of junk food.

Self Care

Finding a Way to Balance Your Commitments

Bahram_new-size-384x240“A couple of weeks into 2013 I was talking with a colleague about New Year’s resolutions, Life Time’s big Commitment Day event  and the various projects we were both envisioning next,” writes Bahram Akradi of Experience Life! “She asked me what kinds of commitments I had on deck for the New Year. I thought about it a moment and half jokingly replied: Not to make any new commitments.”

“The more I think about that possibility, though, the more I like it. Because the truth is, I have commitments from 2012 that I’m still deeply invested in getting closure on. And one of those commitments (which I’ve been steadily working on for more years than I care to admit) is about creating a little more balance in my life.”

Too-Busy-to-Enjoy-Life1You don’t have to be an artist to be creative, but even artists sometimes find themselves “blocked” or “waiting for inspiration to come. This is the wrong approach to using your creative mind.

It is a fluid process that we can connect to with the right mindset,” says  Olga Gonithellis of PsychCentral, “Here are 5 ways you can reconnect with your inner motivation and desire to create art, finish your novel, choreograph a new dance, or add an extra part to your piano composition…”
