After an exhausting presentation, some of us experience a migraine attack, after the separation from the partner the skin itches, and in stress the herpes blooms. The body reacts to negative feelings.
 
Positive emotions can influence biochemical processes in our body. Studies have shown that people who regularly experience feelings of love, joy and well-being show a better heart rhythm on the ECG and have a lower risk of infarction. In addition, the immune system of the happy ward off inflammatory processes better. New findings even show that when the psyche changes, the body changes at the cellular level. Positive feelings, so the conclusion, can protect our health.
 
 
The US psychologist Carol Ryff, who is regarded as a pioneer in the field of mental satisfaction, formulated six pillars of well-being: self-acceptance, social relations, autonomy and the purpose of life, active environmental design, and personal growth.
 
Ryff made some interesting observations: people who studied hard in the evenings or helped others in the evenings, for example, were happier in the long run than people who flew into the Caribbean vacation. And: they also warded off infections better.
Psychoneuro immunologist Michael Antoni from Florida also believes that positive changes in the psyche are manifesting in the body. Antoni set up a stress management program for breast cancer patients: In ten sessions of two hours, participants received training to reduce their fears and exercises from imaginative psychotherapy. The result of his long-term study: The positive effect of stress reduction could even be observed at the cellular level. After years, the test subjects had fewer metastasis genes active.
Self-acceptance promotes happiness: people who constantly focus on their weaknesses sabotage their well-being and produced a bad mood. Also, those who ask themselves what they can do for society and thus define a purpose in life, therefore, promote their sense of well-being.
Here is another tip to deeply feel good and positive about your self: people should focus on their strengths. It is one of the key insights of Positive Psychology: “Build, what’s strong” – strong, which is good. These so-called signature strengths, which are written on one’s body, should be used in as many areas as possible. Sometimes that even brings a flow feeling – and it keeps you healthy.
Support your happiness via:
– Physical exercise
– Meditation, prayer, and belief
– Inspiring books, movies, and lectures
– Yoga, dancing, swimming, walks in nature
– Meeting inspiring positive friends
– Give meaning to existing relationships
– Deep relaxation and sufficient sleep

Clean Foods and Drinks

We believe in mother nature: our bodies are running great with lots of spring water and of course lots of movement/exercise.

And the main emphasis should be on greens, organic salads, veggies, juices and smoothies. Our body needs the organic, bio available minerals to chemically buffer toxins/acids. That is the real “alkaline” movement. Because of a very acidic life style with poor diet, little exercise and lots of stress people are mineral depleted.

We do not recommend chemically, synthetically generated mineral/vitamins because the body can absorb only little of those. E.g. women who take calcium supplements have a 30% increased risk of heart attack.

Sea water is alkaline and rich in minerals but if you drink only sea water you die in a few days because of kidney failure. Last week a woman contacted me because of her kidney stones. She had been taking lots of a very expensive “alkaline mineral powder” for 1,5 years. Not good.

Again, try to only ingest foods and drinks you fully understand without a chemistry degree 🙂

Here is more info on organic vs inorganic minerals:

Organic and inorganic Minerals – what’s the difference?

by Peita Handel, BSc, Ad. Dip. (Herbal Medicine)

We often think of ‘organic’ in terms of chemical and hormone-free produce. But when we talk about minerals, the term organic relates to the type of molecule it’s bound to.

These ‘extra’ molecules are needed because minerals are not simply absorbed on their own, they need another molecule to help them get into and around the body. The type of molecule bound to your mineral affects how it is absorbed and utilised by your body.

Mineral supplements, why bother in the first place?
Because we often just don’t get enough. For example, many Australian adults consume less than the average recommended dietary intakes (RDIs) for both zinc and magnesium. You are at particular risk of not meeting your mineral needs if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, female over 65, vegetarian, vegan or an athlete.

Key minerals that your body needs:
• Magnesium: nerve and muscle function, bone health, carbohydrate metabolism, energy production, blood glucose regulation, cardiovascular health

• Calcium: bone mineralisation, density and strength, dental health, premenstrual syndrome, nerve and muscle function

• Zinc: healthy immune function, reproductive health, healthy hair, skin and nails, wound healing, digestive function, vision, hearing, sense of taste and smell

• Iron: tissue oxygenation, energy production, immune function, connective tissue health, cardiovascular health

When you consider magnesium is needed for over 500 enzyme reactions in your body, you can see why getting enough of this mineral is so important. Where it gets tricky is knowing what to look for when faced with shelves displaying a range of different compounds for similar sounding products. There might well be a dozen different types of magnesium supplement, but what is the difference?

The main differentiating factor is whether a compound is organic or inorganic. Understanding this is key when choosing a mineral supplement that delivers, because not all are created equal.

So what is an organic mineral?
An organic mineral is a compound containing organic food-based acids, such as amino acids and citric acid. For example, calcium bound to the amino acid glycinate forms the organic compound calcium glycinate.

Mineral supplements often contain inorganic (rock-based) minerals as these are cheaper to produce. Calcium bound to phosphate makes calcium phosphate, which has different properties to its organic counterpart.

Inorganic minerals are difficult to absorb
Put basically, molecules are more stable when holding hands with a buddy. A free unbound mineral will wander looking for something with the opposite charge to grab onto to.

Inorganic compounds are broken down by your body very quickly and dissociate more readily, and this leaves the unbound mineral in a more reactive and less stable state.

It can then interact in your digestive system in the following ways:

• Bind to other compounds – unbound minerals bind with other molecules such as phytates found in nuts, grains and some vegetables. They form a new compound and this traps the mineral from absorption and utilisation by your body.

• Irritate the gut – unbound minerals can also interact and irritate with the lining of your digestive system and this sometimes causes a laxative effect or diarrhoea.

Organic minerals are generally absorbed better
Organic minerals break down more slowly, and this increases their stability. A mineral that remains bound for longer is less reactive and goes where it is meant to, offering two main benefits:

• Higher bioavailability – organic mineral compounds can travel along the gut without getting trapped by other compounds.

• Decreased gut irritation – a bound mineral is less reactive and so less likely to irritate the gut lining like freed minerals can.

Causes Of Weight Gain

Unintentional weight gain is one of the fastest growing health problems in North America. The list of diseases caused by obesity is long, and is topped by heart failure and its precursors. But what causes weight gain? There are obvious factors like the food you eat, and some less obvious including stress and lack of sleep. But all these factors are part of a larger picture.

Can I enjoy my coffee and still be alkaline?

Can I enjoy my coffee and still be alkaline?

Isn’t it interesting? Drinking a cup of coffee can make us more feel more awake and aware. These are things that everyone enjoys and appreciates. In a humorous way: All of Northamerica runs on coffee 🙂

And a strong espresso is about 10.000 times more acidic then our blood. So our body needs to work hard to balance/buffer the coffee’s acidity. Lots of minerals from our “beauty pillars” skin, scalp, bones, theeth are used for that chemical reaction.

So it’s not surprising that a question that I get all the time from people is, “Can I still have coffee on the Alkaline Diet?”.

Ok, let’s be very clear on this! Coffee is very acid forming in the body. It does not have an alkalizing effect, and so its not a good idea to drink too much.

As everyone knows, the key to a happy and healthy life is to take “everything in moderation“. The key is the acid-alkaline balance.

“Is It Time For Me To Quit Drinking Coffee?”
Quitting coffee is easy if you’re ripe and ready to do it, and next to impossible if you aren’t! It really comes down to the question that each must answer for themselves… “What are my priorities?”

If you have serious health issues, and you’re committed to recovering your health as soon as possible, then quitting coffee is one of your best moves right now.

If coffee is still a priority for you, and you are not seriously ill, then you are probably not quitting it any time soon.

If that describes you, then here are a couple of tips to help you to keep an alkaline balance in your body while still having your morning coffee.

Tip #1 – Add Whipping Cream
On the alkaline diet, it’s generally accepted that yogurt (esp. goat and/or organic), sour cream made from real cream, cream cheese, butter and unsweetened whipping cream are all ok.

So instead of having your coffee black, or with some homogenized milk or cream, try adding whipping cream.

Dr. Jentschura says that whipping cream has a somewhat alkalizing effect on our bodies. This can partly buffer the acidity of the coffee before you even put it into your body!

Drinking your morning coffee will still contribute acidity to your system, but the net effect will be less damaging with the addition of the whipping cream.

Plus, whipping cream in coffee makes it very rich and deliciously creamy! It might take a bit of getting used to, but many people, myself included, find it really good!

Tip #2 – Take Some Extra of Dr. Jentschura’s WurzelKraft
When we consume acid-forming foods, our body compensates by buffering the acids with alkalizing minerals. These minerals are coming from your body’s mineral stores (your blood, skin, teeth, hair, bones, joints etc).

Before you have your cup of coffee, eat a few teaspoons or tablespoons of WurzelKraft. This provides your body with an abundance of alkalizing minerals and about 50.000 vital substances which it can use to buffer acids and build up its mineral stores.

Aim For A 80/20 Alkaline-Acid Balanced Diet
Its all about balance. Ideally, aim for 80% alkalizing foods and beverages in your daily diet. We are talking about fruits and vegetables (including grains, nuts and seeds). You don’t have to be perfect! Trying to be perfect, and thinking you need to be perfect is just setting yourself up for failure!

We all know when we are eating healthy, or unhealthy things. We all know when we are eating in unhealthy ways. Choose foods, and ways with foods, that you know are nourishing and nurturing to your body. And its ok not to be perfect.

Benefits of a New Year Detox

For thousands of years, human beings lived as hunter-gatherers; a few hours of work each day devoted to gathering and preparing food, and the rest spent socializing with their family. As a result, they got plenty of fresh air, exercise, and a real sense of community.

In contrast, our acidic North American lifestyle prevents the possibility of enjoying the benefits of an alkaline body. Too much acid-generating food and drink, too much stress, and not enough fresh air and exercise – these factors create an acidic versus an alkaline body, and are the main factors which throw off our natural balance.

On a physical level, we are just like the animals. But do animals in their natural environment eat junk food, drive cars, and get really stressed out at day jobs? No way! They are out in the fresh air running and jumping, eating fresh food, and relaxing. Everything they do contributes to an alkaline body and vibran

Three Step Program to Alkalize the Body

By making a commitment to change, we can make different choices that will bring balance to our lives; it is not that hard once you’re ready. Changing your diet to consist of 80% alkalizing foods and beverages can make a huge difference to your health.

Dr. Jentschura, MSc, from Germany has developed a very powerful and easy 3-step program to purify and alkalize the body: 1) Cleansing; 2) Neutralization and regeneration; 3) Elimination.

Step 1: Break-up of deposited impurities with AlkaHerb Tea – The three-step program begins with using AlkaHerb 7×7 cell cleansing tea. It helps dissolve the toxic material stored in tissues. Dr. Jentschura based his recipe on the lifelong research of a family of naturopathic doctors in Germany over a hundred years ago. Made from 49 organic and wildcrafted herbs, the AlkaHerb tea is effective in breaking down toxins and acids stored in tissues. As the accumulated impurities are dissolved, they can be metabolized and flushed out. As these stored toxins and acids are released, so is the water and fat which was bound by these acids. Weight loss is a positive side effect of the Triple Jump to Purification. Simply drink two cups of AlkaHerb daily, and for each cup consumed, be sure to drink a glass of water.

Step 2: Neutralization and re-mineralization with WurzelKraft – The second step means eating WurzelKraft alkaline food granules to neurtralize the reactivated acids and to refill the mineral stores in the blood, skin, teeth, hair, bones, and tissues. As the acids and toxins released by the 7 x 7 AlkaHerb tea need to be neutralized for safe removal, it is important to take huge amounts of WurzelKraft to avoid any problems like a gout attack.

WurzelKraft means literally ‘The Power Of Roots’, and is made from the roots, seeds, flowers, and leaves of more than 100 different healing plants; each of these organic and wildcrafted plants is carefully chosen to support optimum cell health. WurzelKraft contains hundreds of thousands of vital substances like minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and enzymes needed by the body’s cells. It tastes delicious and comes in a bioavailable form that makes for quick assimilation of vital minerals. Eating 6 teaspoons daily will flood the body with all the minerals, vitamins, and trace elements it needs.

Step 3: Expel Toxins and Acids with AlkaBath – The third step involves bathing with AlkaBath alkaline mineral bath salts to enable quick and comfortable elimination of acids and toxins through the skin. Besides the kidneys, lungs, and intestines, your skin is a very large and effective organ of elimination. Dr. Jentschura’s simple yet ingenious approach to efficient elimination takes advantage of the large surface area of the skin. This is easily achieved by bathing in an alkaline solution (pH 8.5). Simply add 3 tablespoons of AlkaBath to the full bath (use a smaller amount for foot baths), and soak as long as you can. The results of this powerful detox include better sleep, healthier skin, and more.

Dr. Jentschura’s alkaline products are available in health food stores across Canada. To purchase online, visit: http://www.youinfocusproducts .com. For more information call toll-free 1-866-722-9812

WIN 3 AlkalineStarter Kits, each with the value of $116. All you have to do is read Dr. Jentschura’s text about ‘Three Steps to Alkaline Purification’ and answer this question: How many tablespoons of AlkaBath do you need to enjoy a detox full bath?

HEALTHY, HAPPY, AND OVER 100 YEARS OLD

 

This is priceless super important information on how to become 100 years old and enjoy health and happiness. This video should be played in each school on this planet in my opinion.

The Need to Exercise

The Need to Exercise

Spring time means outdoors time. Very few people know that deep breathing does help eliminating acids/toxins via the respiratory system.

 

I cannot overemphasize the benefits of working out enough. About 50 years ago our life was structured completely different. People “enjoyed” much more physical work. We come from a historical background of being hunters and gatherers with lots of physical activities.

 

Nowadays some people’s exercise is equivalent to pumping the gas pedal and pushing the buttons on the elevator.

 

 

Also you can also recognize the opposite behavior: Some people recognize the need to work out desperately after sitting all day all week and basically overdue it by running a marathon on the weekend. Not very healthy either.

 

We invite you to exercise on a regular base. Try twice a day for at least 20 min:

 

Walking in Mother Nature

Biking

Jumping the Trampoline

Swimming

Dancing

Skip the rope

Yoga

Pilates

 

Besides getting rid of toxins and acids enjoy a much more relaxed state of mind after your work out.

 

My tip for you: Try to work out in the morning and enjoy a increased metabolism with more fat burning and increased happiness hormones all day 🙂
