Week 2: May 8 through 14 on The S.O.S.O. Free Plan™

Week 2: May 8 through May 14 on The S.O.S.O. Free Plan™

This week, I will be sharing more about the other affects (mental, psychological, etc) of doing this and not focus on the food, as did in the first week, but may mention if there are any other foods that didn’t mention before.

May 8/19 – 8th day on The S.O.S.O. Free Plan™

I was working today and the hungry feeling started later in the afternoon, but maybe is really mental/psychological and need to hydrate more. I will try that and see what happens. I am trying to stay strong, but almost broken down to have some crunchy and salty flax crackers, but I have to realize, I’m craving minerals and need to eat more natural sodium rich foods. I found this on website: livestrong.com – A cardoon, which is classified as a leafy vegetable, contains the highest sodium content of any raw vegetable, according to the USDA, with 303 milligrams in 1 cup of shredded cardoon. Raw celeriac, wax gourd, artichokes, beets, carrots, seaweed, turnips, beet greens, celery and chard contain 75 milligrams of sodium or more per serving. When cooked without salt, sweet potatoes, spinach and collards contain 75 milligrams of sodium or more per serving. It also said about fruits: According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a mammy apple contains the most sodium per serving. One of these large round tropical fruits contains 127 milligrams of sodium. Guavas and passion fruit are the only other fruits in the raw form that contain 50 milligrams of sodium or more per serving. I do use seaweed powder on my grains and salads daily, which are mineral rich.

May 9/19 – 9th day on The S.O.S.O. Free Plan™

I found some other snacks – Puffed Corn & Puffed Millet from Arrowhead Mills with nothing else in it. So was thinking to put the rice puffs, puffed corn and millet together in a bag, as a snack mix to have when I am on the go. I also got Tomato Paste with no salt added from 365 Everday Value (Whole Foods private label), so can use that to spread on my rice cakes or put on grain/pasta.

May 10/19 – 10th day on The S.O.S.O. Free Plan™

I had some of the other puffed cereals bought yesterday for snacks, so will need to buy more and the tomato paste on rice cakes was really good and satisfying. I feel like I am already be in the flow of doing this and not have any issues, as have to snack more on carbohydrates, since not eating fats this month.

May 11/19 – 11th day on The S.O.S.O. Free Plan™

Snacked alot today and not feeling the need for anything not eating (fats, oils, sugar & salt). I do not feel or notice any difference physically, as usually see any changes, first in the face, but maybe is too soon to see anything.

May 12/19 – 12th day on The S.O.S.O. Free Plan™

Didn’t each much during the day, but more in the evening. I got Khorasan Wheat/Kamut Puffs from Nature’s Path. I usually do not eat anything with wheat in it except for the sprouted tortillas, but kamut is different then regular wheat. I liked the taste of it, as a snack and something to eat quickly with no preparation, like the other puffed cereals have. Nothing new to share about my experience.

May 13/19 – 13th day on The S.O.S.O. Free Plan™

Ate alot of carbs today – seem to be hungry all day – ate rice, rice cakes, rice and kamut puffs. Could also be, because was not working today which keeps my mind off eating.

May 14/19 – 14th day on The S.O.S.O. Free Plan™

Can’t believe it has been 2 weeks and still sticking with it 100%! Woo Woo! The power of self-control (I have a strong nature when it comes to that, if you have checked out other posts on the cleanses and fasts I have done in the past) and not feeling like I am missing anything, but do crave more carbohydrates/starches. One has to be very aware and more astute when looking at packaged products when trying to avoid added salt, sugar, oils and fats, as it is easy to miss, if you don’t read the ingredients. Whereas, if a product has naturally occuring of any of those mentioned, that is a different story, like sugar from fruit or sodium in celery, etc.

Get Your Digestive Tract Back on Track After Holiday Indulgence by Herbal Papaya

Get Your Digestive Tract Back on Track After Holiday Indulgence
by Herbal Papaya

http://www.herbalpapaya.com

Don’t let overindulgence get you down this holiday season! If you can’t resist the excess, follow these tips to find a healthy balance again in your life.

We always recommend moderation as the best course of action for most aspects in life, but the holidays are a difficult time not to indulge, unless you have self-control of steel.

We’re not here to judge anyone for what they want to indulge in this holiday season. Instead, we’d like to help you out if you happen to go a little overboard at that holiday work party coming up.

We’re only human and it happens to the strictest of us, but it’s important to focus on what to do once the damage is done. Don’t make indulgence a habit, but be proactive about owning up to it and supporting your body through the worst.

Why, might you ask, is our digestive system such an important component to our health? Well besides feeling crummy after indulging in too rich or too much food, a healthy digestive system is the key to longevity and preventing degenerative issues later in life from a buildup of toxins.

If you’re just unable to resist another serving of your favorite holiday foods (for the 3rd time today), never fear! We have you covered to get you back on track and ready for the new year, feeling healthier and happier than ever.

Herbal Tea

Avoiding caffeine and hitting the herbal tea can be one of the best ways to support your immune system and flush out the bad toxins in your body.

Mint, chamomile, and lemon grass teas are especially great for a variety of health benefits, but most importantly, they all aid your digestive system in some way.

Herbal teas are also a good way to increase your hydration, but make sure to also be drinking more water on a regular basis around the holidays if you’re prone to overeating or drinking alcohol excessively.

Papaya Seeds

Sometimes what you need after a night or week of indulgence is a complete detox. Papaya seeds are a smart choice for liver detoxification after one too many mulled wines, hot toddies, or glasses of champagne.

In addition to their liver cleansing capabilities, papaya seeds are also great for digestion because they’re high in the natural enzyme, papain.

Green Smoothies/Juices

Speaking of detox, green smoothies and juices are another option to consider for cleansing out your system. They not only help with digestion and moving toxins out of your body, but replenish you with a variety of helpful and important nutrients.

Get creative and try your own version of a green smoothie, mixing and matching a few of the best ingredients for digestion, such as pineapples, ginger, parsley, avocados, lemon juice, celery, spinach, flax seeds, and cucumbers.

Natural Enzymes

Pineapples and papayas are perfect digestion aids due to their rich natural enzymes in the form of bromelain and papain, respectively. They are both important enzymes for breaking down the nutrients that our daily food intake provides us with.

Focusing on finding the best natural enzymes to help with digestion can provide relief from issues such as gas, stomachaches, and even constipation and diarrhea.

Fiber-Rich Foods

A lot of holiday type meals lack a very important piece to a heathy digestive tract – fiber! Without fiber your digestive system actually slows down and it takes longer for foods, and the toxins that may come with them, to get through your body.

Get your fill of fiber-rich foods during and after the holidays to keep your digestive tract at optimal health. Fiber-rich foods include bran, beans, berries, sweet peas, green leafy vegetables, nuts, seeds, squash, wholesome whole grains, and a variety of every day fruits.

Ginger

As you may have noticed from a lot of our articles, ginger is a very powerful addition to any healthy diet. Ginger is great for digestion because it speeds up the journey of food from the stomach to the small intestine. It is also known for balancing gastric juices.

Ginger is the perfect remedy if you suffer from bloating issues, intestinal gas, or a regular upset stomach from rich foods.

Fermented Foods

The big secret to why fermented foods are a great comeback for digestive health after the holidays is because of the stress that comes with the season.

Stress is horrible for digestion. It actually has the power to destroy the healthy bacteria in your large intestine. If you’re prone to stress around this time of the year, think about taking a probiotic supplement, or even better, eating a few fermented foods on a regular basis.

Plain yogurt, kombucha, and kimchi are great to add to your diet for increasing the amount of healthy bacteria in your system.

Work Out

This suggestion is perhaps one of the more obvious ones, but working out is always a great response to bad eating habits and holiday-induced stress.

Working up a sweat not only helps your metabolism, but increases your energy levels and keeps your digestive system running smoothly.

If you just had a huge meal, don’t get out and immediately do strenuous exercise for the next hour. Instead, think about walking around the block instead of giving into the tryptophan drowsiness. By doing this you can reduce your chance of heartburn and support a speedy digestion while you’re at it.

What do you do to overcome holiday indulgence? How do you prefer to detox your body throughout the end of the year?

From the Kitchen @ Hippocrates Health Institute – The best natural energy

From the Kitchen @ Hippocrates Health Institute – The best natural energy
http://www.hippocratesinst.org

People have consumed juices since the beginning of modern civilization. Fresh, raw juices are the best way to acquire needed nutrients in their most digestible form. Energy, strength, cleansing, healing, hydration, and the building and maintenance of the electrolyte system—as well as the renal (kidney) and respiratory systems, the two fluid-based systems of the body—are the main benefits of the consumption of these enzyme-rich liquids.

Ingredients/produce recommended to use in your juices and salads for their nutritional benefits.

Brussels sprouts – Contains protein that helps generate insulin, thereby improving pancreatic function and combating digestive disorders.

Cucumber – Benefits respiratory, renal, joint, and ligament functioning. Increases dermal elasticity.

Cauliflower – Improves the functioning of skeletal, digestive, and elimination systems.

Celery – Facilitates dermal detoxification and circulation. Reduces uric acid. Improves electrolyte function. Detoxifies the system of the effects of nicotine and caffeine. Promotes dermal flexibility. Provides organic sodium.

Daikon radish – Acts as a blood thinner. Maintains electromagnetic functioning of the solar plexus.

Dandelion – Creates red blood cells. Strengthens gums and teeth. Assists healthy bone development (skeletal and dental).

Endive – Improves vision and reduces the potential for and the severity of cataracts. Creates strong ventricular tissue.

Horseradish – Consumed in small amounts, removes excess mucous. Diuretic. Helps to counteract colds and flu.

Iris Flower – Builds ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Strengthens joints and improves membrane development.

Jerusalem Artichoke – Stabilizes blood sugar disorders. Generates energy.

Lily Flower – Builds capillaries. Strengthens vision and hearing. Assists the H cell development of the immune system.

Leek – Anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic. Prevents ulcers and inhibits parasites.

Lettuce – A subtle aphrodisiac and mood enhancer. Helps restore hair and skin.

Nasturtium – Builds the immune system, fighter cells, and eosinophils. Purifies the lymphatic system and the bloodstream.

Parsley – Minimizes the pain of menstrual cramps. Fights coronary disease, cataracts, conjunctivitis, and glaucoma. Improves vision, cardiovascular functioning, and blood count.

Pepper (ripe red, yellow, purple) – Reduces bloating, flatulence, colitis, and colic. Rich in vitamin C. Strengthens metabolism, specifically of the heart, and reduces the risk of microbial infection.

Potato (white) – High mineral content, especially potassium, assists renal and cardiovascular function. Effective against arthritic and osteoporotic conditions.

Sauerkraut (raw) – Improves dermal elasticity and appearance. Cleanses and builds the digestive organs. Enhances the probiotics in the gastrointestinal tract, which in turn strengthen immune cells.

Sorrel – Enhances healthy skeletal and dermal development. Creates greater bone density in the lower extremities.

Spinach – Prevents anemia, convulsions, neuronal disorders, and adrenal dysfunction. Builds red blood cells to cleanse the liver, thereby improving immune function.

String bean (green, purple, yellow) – Regulates blood sugar (in both diabetes and hypoglycemia) by insulin stimulation. Develops proteinase (protein-digesting enzymes).

Tomato – Contains minimal amounts of lycopene. Although it is effective in the reduction of prostate, breast, and colon cancers, and in combating hepatitis A, B, and C, it is less effective than tomato seed sprout juice. Detoxifies the liver and gall bladder.

Turnip Greens – Consumed in small quantities, builds bones, facilitates digestion, prevents colon polyps and hemorrhoids.

Violet Flower – Consumed in small quantities, stimulates the spleen and assists in the production of healthy red blood cells, fingernails, and toenails.

Watercress – Consumed in small amounts, increases hemoglobin to prevent anemia and chronic low blood pressure. Strengthens joints, cartilage, tendons, and ligaments. Helps to reduce tumors by improving circulation.

Yellow squash – Packed with bone-building minerals. Acts as a diuretic and relieves constipation.

FYI: To Salt or Not to Salt?



FYI: FOR YOUR INFORMATION

My perspectives on various topics

that are health related







Topic: To Salt or Not to Salt?

Thursday February 4, 2010

This is a very important subject because most people think that sea salt or Himalayan or celtic is better than table salt. I have to let you know that no salt is good salt. Our bodies need to consume minerals and one of them is sodium not salt, which is sodium chloride and toxic to the body. There are foods that are rich in sodium, such as spinach, salt, spinach and the sea vegetable kelp (which is available in powder form from frontiercoop.com; 1-800-669-3275 or granular form from Maine Coast Sea Vegetables seaveg.c0m; 207-565-2907 and you can probably find in a local health food store such as Whole Foods). Minerals are important to keep the body alkaline and our heart is a sodium pump.

I am including a link to an article by Roger Haeske (rogerhaeske.com) that will enlighten you more on this topic. Link: http://rogerhaeske.com/?p=72
