Ways To Overcome Obesity

March 3, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

Restrict non-fibrous carbohydrate intake.

Good carbohydrate foods contain dietary fibre. These are vegetables like cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale, broccoli, etc. They fill the stomach and contain essential minerals and vitamins. The dietary fibre is converted to short-chain fatty acids which help the body to burn fat.

Potatoes are a source of vitamin C and minerals, but should be eaten sparingly because the starch they contain raises blood pressure.

However, cooking and then chilling potatoes for use in salads produces resistant starch. That reduces the blood sugar-raising effect.

Restrict Fructose Consumption

Cease fructose intake. Read the labels. Fructose is present in processed foods and is harmful to health.

Eat no more than 25 grams of fructose a day.

All refined carbohydrates turn to sugar and may cause insulin resistance, which is behind chronic illnesses such as obesity.

Replace Unsaturated Fats with Healthy Saturated Fats

Instead of relying on non-dietary fiber

Detoxing Approach With A Difference

March 2, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

With a harsh or severe detox plan it will remove these toxins too quickly where the liver becomes overloaded and is unable to dissolve these toxins. Therefore, the toxins are not discharged the normal way and finish up in the bloodstream, which can trigger all sorts of illness to any of the vital organs. This is not advisable because it simply starves the body of essential nutrients.

Once that plan is complete most people go back to the old lifestyle and habits as before. The same result: You are back where you started from, gained a few extra pound or kilo’s of weight. For some people (women especially) this is an unacceptable situation. So it is a must during a detox to choose an effective and healthy eating plan.

Most of this is about using food as a detoxification process to help the body flush out toxins that are harmful …

Ways to Heal a Sore Back

February 28, 2019 Billy Kamerskin 0

Causes of Backache

In our spine, there are three curves, and along with the discs, these act as shock absorbers and allow our spine to bend. In actual practice, we bend our spine 3000 to 5000 times a day and when one is involved with any of the tasks that require bending of the spine, the same can lead to pressure on the back side of ligaments and the lumbar and cervical joints of the spine.

In practice, a host of factors can be responsible for back pain, and these could be related with posture, ergonomics, one’s hobbies, work habits or lifestyle in general. The pain could be mild or severe, and it is not always limited to one’s back. Owing to a condition like a pinched nerve in the back, the pain could radiate to any part of the body, be it hands, head, legs or even feet.

The spine is a comprised of 24 separate bony structures called the vertebrae, along with the bones of sacrum and coccyx. In between the vertebrae are discs and these discs act as shock absorbers. Owing to these discs, we are able to bend our spine.

There is a central canal within each vertebra, and through these canals, our spine threads down. This carries nerves from our brain to the rest of the body.

The exact cause of any of the aches related to or centered upon the back are difficult to recognize in most cases. But it is invariably associated to a strain in the muscle, or a strain in a tendon or ligament. At times, though in rare cases, this may even be caused by damage to one of the structures in the back, and this is known as mechanical back pain.

It is unlikely that discomfort in the …
