Yogic eating
Author: Christophe Mouze

Any dog or horse trainer knows that what you feed to an animal influences their behaviour. Although we tend to forget this when it comes to ourselves, what we eat has huge influence over our thoughts, and ultimately our emotional and spiritual well being. The yogis of old times knew this, and many classical yogic texts, such as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, contain advice on yogic diet. However, proper diet is a controversial subject. A subject extensively researched by modern science, there are as many 'proper' diets as there are scientific studies. It is more than a bit confusing for someone to devise their own individual diet amidst so much, often contradictory advice. The advice given below is based on the classical yogic texts and on the author's experience. It also gives pointers for further research and experimentation.

Why was the FDA trying to hide the facts about Ephedra from YOU?
Author: Matthew Kramer

In April 2004 the FDA removed ephedra from the market claiming that it was responsible for dozens of deaths. The legal battle between the FDA and health officials began when the health officials became unhappy with the FDA’s decision to ban ephedra. The FDA had not taken proper action in declaring the ban on Ephedra based products. There reasoning for the ban was that there were too many problems occurring, some of which led to deaths. Ephedra was considered to be a drug that was too risky. The FDA claims that the negatives outweighed the positive aspects of the drug.

Weight Loss - It's in Your Head
Author: Helene Haber

When you truly consider the weight-loss process, the battle waged is mostly in your mind. “Should I eat the corn muffin with butter or would it be better for me to have margarine or better yet, have jelly? What am I doing eating this muffin anyway? It’s so caloric and filled with saturated fat. I’m such a pig. I have absolutely zero willpower.” It’s no wonder you’ll eat that muffin with the butter and slather jelly on top to quiet that negative self-talk.

The Thin Commandments
Author: Carolyn Costin MFCC

One of the things that is so difficult to understand is the dedication to thinness beyond a reasonable doubt. I know it is hard to comprehend how someone could relentlessly pursue something that is killing her/him and ruining the family, etc. Who or what is telling her to do these things? Where did she come up with some of these behaviors? After working with several patients and thinking back on my own experience I began to see that one of the things that goes on inside is the formulation and adherence to self-imposed rules. I have formulated these rules into what I call the Thin Commandments. I use these to expose my patient's rules to themselves (many of them are unaware that they have certain rules). We go over the "Thin Commandments" and try to extract any other rules they might be living by. Below are the ten most common eating disorder "commandments" I came up with out of countless interviews with patients. In treatment these cognitive distortions are confronted and the ! meaning behind them uncovered i

The perfect weight loss solution!
Author: Lynda Lock

The main contributing factors to failure on a weight loss program are hunger and energy loss. The majority of foods today, even “good foods” such as fruit and vegetables, are nutritionally deficient due to over processing, chemical spraying, early harvesting and, in the case of meats, use of antibiotics. As a result of these factors, the average person would need to consume around 4000 calories worth of food to meet their daily nutritional requirements. For women the recommended daily intake is around 1500 and for men around 2500 so it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure out what we’d all look like if we ate 4000 calories per day!

The Key To Optimal Health
Author: Dr. Rita Louise, ND

During the past 20 years, we have heard a lot about controlling disease through diet, exercise and food supplements, but not much is being said as to how to prevent disease before it occurs. We are all are born with both inherent strengths and weaknesses as part of our genetic inheritance. All of the tissues in our bodies, whether of bone, muscle, gland or organ, have a unique balance of chemical elements that are designed to work in harmony with one another. It is now believed, that all chronic diseases are accompanied by nutritional deficiencies and imbalances in the essential chemical elements that make up the body.

The Health Benefits of Omega 3's
Author: Aaron Wilmot

According to renowned research scientist Dr. Barry Sears, Medical Research is focusing more and more on the health benefits of high dose fish oil, which has long been considered by doctors around the world to be one of the most effective remedies for improving physical performance, treating depression and arthritis, and improving concentration and memory. Fish oil is also widely considered to be effective in preventing heart disease because of it's rich omega-3 component. In addition, new research suggests that high doses of fish oil may also be effective in combating Parkinson's disease, Attention deficit disorder, and other Neurological problems. Dr. Sears bluntly states that "pharmaceutical grade fish oil is as close to a medical miracle as we will see in the 21st century".

THE HEALING POWER OF SOY'S ISOFLAVONES
Author: Monique N. Gilbert

Numerous reports indicate that, because soy is high in isoflavones, it can prevent illness and promote good health. Isoflavones are a class of phytochemicals, which are compounds found only in plants (phyto means plant). They are also a type of phytoestrogen, or plant hormone, that resembles human estrogen in chemical structure yet are weaker. By mimicking human estrogen at certain sites in the body, isoflavones provide many health benefits that help you to avoid disease. Isoflavones are found in soybeans, chick peas and other legumes. However, soybeans are unique because they have the highest concentration of these powerful compounds. Soy contains many individual isoflavones, but the most beneficial are genistein and daidzein.

SIX WAYS SOY BENEFITS YOUR HEALTH
Author: Monique N. Gilbert

Soy, and most soy-based products, are nutritional powerhouses. Soybeans are the only plant food that has all of the essential amino acids our body requires, making it a complete protein. Soy foods do not have any cholesterol, and most are high in fiber. Soy also has many vitamins, minerals, and phytochemical compounds (like isoflavones) that work together to create numerous health benefits. Research shows that a daily intake of at least 25 grams of soy protein and 30-50 milligrams of isoflavones can improve and safeguard your health. This is the equivalent of 1-2 servings of soy foods a day. Here is a list of soy's properties and how they can positively affect you.

One is the refined or "extracellular" sugars which have been long associated with human disease. The other sugars are "intracellular" which can be found in fruits and vegetables and provide the body with nutrition it needs. These sugars, also known as complex carbohydrates, have been studied for years. However, only recently have we begun discovering their purpose in the body.

One Man's Meat is Another Man's Poison

One of the most important factors for enjoying good health is the food you eat. Food not only nourishes your body and replenishes your tissues, but proper nutrition helps you stay balanced and healthy. Improper nutrition can cause imbalance in your system and eventually lead to disease. But the foods that are best for one person are not necessarily best for the next person. Some foods that help balance one person may actually work to imbalance another person, depending on their individual constitution.

Finally after I returned to the hospital, for the third time, with a high fever and many CT and other diagnostic tests I was finally diagnosed with a ruptured appendix and scheduled for surgery. Doctors gave me a 10% chance of survival rate since I had significant damage and infection and they needed the get the infection down before operating. Also the doctor wanted to have two doctors present during the operations due to the extreme damage that the rupture caused.

Each of us is unique and literally takes the world in through our senses, primarily through our vision. Many believe the way we take in the world is, to some degree, a reflection of who we are and which symptoms we might manifest.

Helpful Hints For Family and Friends
Author: Divya Kakaiya, PhD

Learn to listen. This means hearing what the person means. Try staying attuned to nonverbal messages from their behaviors and check it out with them. For example, "I notice you are slamming doors and stomping around. Are you angry about something?" By listening, you are letting the person know you care about them and what they have to say. Listening means you care about their ideas, opinions and feelings. Listening does not mean fixing or giving solutions. Listening means accurately perceiving what the person is saying.

Many people in today's fast-paced world suffer from everyday digestion problems such as gas, bloating, stomach pain, constipation, heartburn, and fatigue after eating.

Do Your Shopping The Easiest Way...On The Internet
Author: Galen A. Smith Sr.

When I started Upsouth Ventures a little over a year ago, my first business venture was selling Catholic Books & Gifts through catalogs. But it wasn’t long before that particular company folded. Then, I started marketing for a Canadian company regarding their allergy products. It wasn’t long after that, that I picked up yet another company’s products and later I bought some other unique products wholesale from another company. I then proceeded to marketed them along with some other company's products at a local flea market during some cold winter weekends. Needless to say, I would say that two out of the three days that I went out there where successful days. The last day I went out there, it was a dud for sure.

Barriers To Losing Weight
Author: Keith Levick, Ph. D.

For the first time in American history, there are more overweight than thin people. This "growing" trend unfortunately applies to children as well as adults. With the availability of weight programs, medicine and other technology, it's easy to believe the obesity puzzle should be solved. The country, however, is no better off than in 1958 when Dr. Albert Stunkard, renowned obesity researcher, concluded, "Most obese persons will not stay in treatment. Of those who stay in treatment, most will not lose weight; and, (of) those who do lose weight, most will regain it."

3 REASONS TO TRY TEMPEH - SOY'S SUPER FOOD -
Author: Monique N. Gilbert

When most people hear soy, they usually think of tofu and soymilk. Soon tempeh (pronounced tem-PAY) will be one of the first soy products to come to mind. It is fast becoming the most popular soy food on the market because it is highly nutritious, easy to digest, and deliciously simple to prepare. In the past five years tempeh has grown so much in popularity that it is now available in the refrigerated section of many supermarkets. Ten years ago it could only be found at health food stores and Asian food markets. While tempeh may be considered new for many, it actually has a long and extensive history dating back more than 2,000 years. Originally developed in Indonesia, it is a traditional fermented soybean product made from cracked, cooked soybeans inoculated with beneficial bacteria to give it a chewy and meaty consistency. It comes in several varieties, either 100 percent soybeans or soybeans combined with one or more grains like rice, millet, or barley.

10 TOTALLY UNHEALTHY EATING BEHAVIORS TO AVOID!
Author: Nadia Amanda Alterio

Many women today are victims of very serious unhealthy eating behaviors. Ironically, many of them know their behavior is consequential, but would rather jeopardize their health to 'look good' than to try and follow a healthy eating regimen. In a nutshell, this type of ritualistic behavior is really all about weight loss or weight maintenance. Most women will try every and anything that seems like a short cut to achieve success. These ladies are the ones who don't simply make a point of educating themselves about the safest and healthiest way to reach their goals. These are fortunately the easiest people to work with because you know they take their health seriously and will commit to the program. They only need the path laid before them. However, because many women want results through the quickest means possible, they will neglect their health for short-term success and end up taking steps backward while trying to move forward.
