(NaturalHealth365) Yes, you’ve probably heard it before. And, no (as dietary advice goes), it’s not a trendy, attention-grabbing, or innovative concept. A just-published, massive population review conducted by the American Heart Association and involving 2 million adults around the globe definitively confirms that consuming healthy amounts of fruits and vegetables helps prevent deadly ailments such as heart disease and cancer, thereby lengthening lives. (This is a compelling finding when you think about it!)
(NaturalHealth365) According to the American Cancer Society, prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer in American men. It’s estimated that more than 248,000 new cases will be diagnosed in 2021. Prostate cancer is also the second-leading cause of cancer-related death in men within the U.S., and one out of eight men will receive a prostate cancer diagnosis at some point in their life.
(NaturalHealth365) The avocado, aka the “alligator pear,” might be one of the most popular additions to a brunch spread, Mexican dish, or smoothie thanks to its rich flavor and creamy texture. Yet, in spite of its widespread popularity, many people still doubt if avocados are really good for us.
(NaturalHealth365) Type 2 diabetes, which occurs when the body’s supply of insulin is insufficient to control blood sugar, affects over 30 million Americans. In addition to raising the risk of heart disease and stroke, type 2 diabetes can cause nerve damage and kidney disease. And, while Western medicine attempts to control diabetes with medications such as metformin, these can cause toxic side effects, including kidney damage. Clearly, there is a pressing need for safer treatments – and research shows that broccoli sprouts just might fill the bill.
What if the secret to clear, healthy, radiant skin isn’t found in a cream or serum, but rather in the food you eat? In fact, that is true! Whole foods contain nutrients that can get you glowing — naturally. Fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamins A, C, and E, antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, as well as nuts and seeds that contain omega-3 fatty acids… these are some of the best foods for healthy skin.
Whether you’re dealing with adult acne, dry skin, aging, or anything in between, tweaking your diet may be the skin care solution you’ve been seeking. No matter what kind of shape your skin is in, you can improve your complexion with nutritious food. →
(Era of Light) Far worse than the biologic damage caused by refined sugar is the molecular havoc caused by processed vegetable oils. Soybean oil in particular has a questionable safety profile for several reasons, and processed foods are positively loaded with it.
Whether partially hydrogenated, organic or genetically modified to be low in linoleic acid, soybean oil can cause dysfunction at a cellular level. Unfortunately, many health authorities have insisted omega-6-rich vegetable oils like soybean oil are healthier than saturated animal fats such as butter and lard, and this myth has been a tough one to dismantle, despite the evidence against it. ⇲
How are you feeling? Could your mental state use an uplift? What you are putting in your body could be contributing to the way you feel. I’m sure you have heard the famous quote from Hippocrates, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” This saying is something to live by. Before running off to the doctor, maybe ask yourself can I find something from nature that can heal me. →
(NaturalHealth365) Both celiac disease and gluten sensitivity (or intolerance) are growing problems across the world – especially in Europe and North America. In fact, it’s now estimated that approximately 5% of the population in these areas deal with it – experiencing symptoms like depression, nausea, skin rashes, and diarrhea.
(NaturalHealth365) You love avocados as a sandwich garnish or mashed in guacamole at your favorite Mexican restaurant, but this little green superfood is so much more than just a dip or a garnish. Avocadosare loaded with nutrients – which offer profound health benefits.
I can think of least 50 people right now who would list digestive issues as their number one health complaint. Whether it is IBS, an ulcer, heartburn, bloating, unexplainable food intolerances or just a “sensitive gut,” it seems like everybody is dealing with some kind of digestive distress these days.
Have you ever stopped to consider why?
Sadly, what a lot of people don’t know is that seemingly “normal” digestive upset may be a sign of a more serious issue: leaky gut. This term may sound strange, but it can also be serious.
I am so proud of our efforts at TTAC to empower YOU with your health. And knowing the whys, hows, and consequences of leaky gut are so important to continue to learn about.
