Six Key Steps to Avoid GMO Foods

Greetings to you,

Here is a handy chart below with six key steps to avoid purchasing genetically modified foods.  Animal testing with genetically modified organisms has shown severe organ damage.  In addition,  sterility has resulted among cows and pigs fed GMO corn on North American farms.

The number one tip is to avoid purchasing foods or oils that contain non-organic soy, corn, cottonseed or canola ingredients.  90 percent of these crops are now genetically modified.  When these ingredients are on the label, look for “certified organic” or “organic” next to them.  Processed foods and restaurants are other risk areas.  Some known GMO vegetables to be avoided are:

  • Sweet corn
  • Hawaiian papaya
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow summer squash
  • Edamame (soy)

Vegetables and fruits to be enjoyed freely are:

  • Carrots
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Grapes
  • Avocados
  • Broccoli
  • Lettuce
  • Leafy greens
  • Tomatoes
  • Berries
  • Bananas
  • Cucumbers
  • Peas
  • Celery
  • Melons

Top 10 Magnesium Rich Foods for Better Sleep and Greater Health

Greetings to you,

Magnesium deficiency is very common these days.  A recent government study shows that 68% of Americans do not consume the recommended daily intake of magnesium.  I’ve included a helpful chart below that contains some of the top magnesium rich foods.  Magnesium supplements are a good option as well, particularly those containing magnesium citrate which is very absorbable.

Sidney Baker, M.D., a practicing doctor with a special interest in the nutritional aspects of chronic health problems says: “Magnesium deficiency can affect virtually every organ and system of the body. One may experience muscle twitches, cramps, soreness, back aches, neck pain, tension headaches, and fatigue or weakness.”

Studies show that magnesium can soothe insomnia, support heart health, normalize blood sugar, and relieve headaches.  In one study from the University of Iran, people with insomnia were given magnesium tablets twice a day for eight weeks.  They experienced significant increases in quality sleep time, with less night time interruptions and fewer early morning awakenings.

Diets high in processed ingredients (especially sugar) have been shown to contribute to crow’s feet, wrinkles, and fine lines because it damages the tissue that is responsible for keeping the skin smooth.

A diet without live foods — foods like salads, including those containing magnesium which is a natural detoxifier, etc. — can cause a lack of luster in the skin and hair. Salads, raw juicing, and raw foods do the opposite by giving your skin a natural glow.

It’s difficult to get enough magnesium through foods because of modern food processing methods and because the mineral has been depleted from soils, so supplementation with an absorbable form, such as magnesium citrate powder that can be mixed with water, can help both skin and overall health, says Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, a doctor and nutrition expert, author of The Complete Natural Guide to Women’s Health.

Seven Ways to Supercharge your Immune System

Greetings to you,

I’ve included a unique chart below with Seven Ways to Supercharge your Immune System.  What exactly is the “Immune System”?  The body’s immune system protects us against disease, germs, viruses and microorganisms every day of our lives.  Some of the parts of the immune system are the tonsils, spleen and bone marrow (where white blood cells are made).

Usually the immune system does a great job of protecting us from illness and disease.  Sometimes a lack of sleep, exercise, chemicals in foods, toxins in the environment, or prolonged stress weakens it.  Regarding white sugar, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports that when healthy volunteers consumed a large amount of sugar, their immune system’s white blood cells had an impaired ability to destroy bacteria for at least five hours.  One healthy alternative is whole raw fruit, which makes great desserts and snacks

Check out the immunity boosters in the chart below.  This health news is provided by Nutrition Breakthroughs, maker of the effective natural sleep aid Sleep Minerals II, and the natural solution for joint relief, allergies, pain relief and increased energy, Joints and More.
