A Complete Guide To Healthy Eating!

[Read: Natural Height Increasing MethodsGrow Taller 4 Idiots]

Are you attempting to get life from dead foods?

In recent years more people have come to realize the importance of selecting the foods that will most benefit their health. This interest in the life-giving values of food is good and marks here a great advance in human welfare.

EAT ALL FOODS AS CLOSE TO THEIR NATURAL STATE AS POSSIBLE

Most food is overcooked. What is more, many people have the habit of peeling vegetables, potatoes in particular. They should never be peeled, for the most valuable element lie directly under or in the skin.

DON’T USE SODA TO ADD “GREEN” TO VEGETABLES

There are two dangers here. Soda destroys the vitamin content of food, and it reacts on aluminium to produce poisonous substances which enter your blood stream.

GET YOUR VITAMINS AND MINERALS NATURALLY. DON’T RELY ON “ENRICHED” AND “VITAMINIZED” PRODUCTS.

Nature has provided an abundant supply of vitamins and minerals in foods in their raw state. If you have not destroyed them by peeling or overcooking, you will receive an adequate supply so long as you eat a rational diet. The so-called enriched foods have already been devitalized. The mere addition of a chemical equivalent of the necessary vitamins and minerals does not compensate for the loss of natural food elements. Continue reading »

Be An Optimist In Two Weeks!

Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative!

Wishing won’t make it so, but hoping just might – even in the situations that seem hopeless.

If you’re a pessimist, you conduct a bleak monologue with yourself.

Your boss doesn’t say “Good morning,” so you think, I messed up that presentation; I’m going to get fired. Or you watch a debate and think, Politicians are hypocrites.

The pessimist believes that bad things are permanent, pervasive and unchangeable. The optimist, by contrast, believes that bad things are temporary, specific and changeable.

If you scored more than eight points on the quiz on the last page, you are indeed a pessimist. You suffer in three ways: On average, you are more vulnerable to depression, you achieve less than your talents augur, and your health is worse than an optimist’s.

Can you change your way of thinking? Can you create the stuff of hope within yourself?

The answer is yes, but you will not be able to do so overnight. It takes about two weeks of optimism. I can’t convey all the skills of learned optimism in a few paragraphs, but I can tell you the essence of the change: Use a skill that you already have but that you don’t deploy in the right place.

The Optimist Test – Is Your Glass Half Empty Or Half Full?

The following questions, developed by psychologist Martin Seligman, Ph.D., can give you an insight into how you see the world – in a reasonably positive light, or otherwise.

This quiz and commentary are adapted from the Attributional Style questionnaire in his book Learned Optimism.

Read the description of each situation and vividly imagine it happening to you. Perhaps neither response will seem to fit; go ahead anyway and circle one, choosing the cause that is likelier to apply to you. Don’t choose what you think you should say, or what you think would sound good to other people. Be yourself. Continue reading »

What Hope Can Do For You?

Science says you can hope for the best – and get it!

Pandora, Greek myth’s Eve, was given a mysterious box by the Gods, who told her never to open it. One day, tempted, she lifted the lid – and loosed into the world all the evils now known. But she closed the box just in time to save an antidote: HOPE. The ancient myth of Pandora heralds today’s scientific fact.

Some Of The Most Provocative Research Shows That The Hopeful Life Is Demonstrably A Healthier One, Too!

Rigorous new studies identify hope as a powerful positive force in human endeavor – a secret ingredient that can help nurture your health, well-being and success.

The findings are especially significant for women, who on average are twice as likely as men to become severely depressed during their lifetime.

Hope, then, is something more than a poetic abstraction, an ephemeral feeling or an article of faith. Indeed, an area in psychology is developing around hope and its astonishing impact. Continue reading »

Is Your Job Giving You A Pain In The Neck?

…And in the shoulder… and the jaw… and the arms… and the back?

Muscle in with some help!

Griping about inhuman bosses, unforgiving project deadlines, or promotions deserved but denied, may help you get through a high-stress job. But it does nothing for the aches you get all over – in your jaw, neck and shoulders (which often lead to headaches) and in your lower back and legs.

Physicians today are seeing the same gallery of minor aches and pains all the time among their white-collar clientele. Often the underlying problem is a lack of exercise or bottled-up aggression. Executives who don’t get enough physical activity can’t diffuse the energy that builds up from day-to-day frustrations. The repressed urge to punch or kick somebody results directly in muscular stresses, particularly among lower-level executives who have a lot of responsibility but no control over their jobs. They become walking – rather, sitting – textbooks on what doctors in America (where else but America) are today calling execu-pains.

To get an idea of where neck pain actually comes from, clench your fist and visualize what’s going on inside. Muscles are hard, contracted, pressing against the skin. These muscles also push against nerves, and over time those nerves can become irritated. Different people express their tension in different parts of the body. Some get ulcers, some develop high blood pressure, some will get a heart attack in 20 years – and some get neck pains and tension headaches. In certain people there seems to be a kind of constitutional pre-disposition – a weakness – to muscular pain. Continue reading »

What Do You Know? – Unravelling The Mysteries Of The Human Body!

Do you know… Why heartbeats make a noise… Which is the most difficult food to digest… Why pinpricks on the fingertips are more painful than on the buttocks… The secrets and mysteries of the human body never cease to fascinate. Here below, we unravel a few…

Can a small child recognize its mother by smell?

Since human babies are born in hospitals and clinics, it has been possible to make some very interesting observations on their reactions. For many years it was thought that these crying, wriggling, red-faced parcels needed only milk, warmth and cleanliness and, as a very minor consideration, an infrequent tickle under the chin from the mother. This was measured by the strict discipline of these institutions. Now, experiments based on commonsense are under way, in order to overturn the rigidity of the established rules.

It is now known that a new-born child recognizes his mother’s milk. If he is offered several teats impregnated with milk from various mothers, he will grope with his little mouth towards the one which has his mother’s smell and taste.

A baby also reacts to his mother’s voice. Whilst he is growing inside the womb, he hears her voice. But it sounds deeper in his warm, cosy world. After birth, he recognizes these sounds among all the others which now reach his tiny ear. For him they represent well-known, friendly signals in a strange world. Continue reading »

The Perils Of Trying (Too Hard) To Get Fit!

Maybe you should stop envying the apparently super-fit. Every week thousands of men and women injure themselves trying to get obsessively fit.

So, what’s the truth about exercise? Is it good for you? How dangerous is it?

HEART

If your heart is in perfect condition, then exercise is unlikely to do it any harm. But if you’ve spent years eating fatty foods, smoking, drinking and lounging around then the chances are high that your heart is already showing signs of damage. And heavy exercise could kill you. Men between ages 35 and 55 who get carried away in the gym are the ones most likely to be carried away on a stretcher. The number of young – and apparently fit – sportsmen who collapse and have heart attacks is horrifying high. And only HALF the runners who die of heart attacks have any other known risk factors – family history of heart disease, high blood pressure etc. The older you are – and the more UNFIT – the greater your chances of causing serious and possibly permanent damage to your heart by over-exercising.
