Do Not Throw Away The Healthiest Part Of Your Avocado

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

It’s well known that the avocado is great source of healthy fats as well as other super nutrients. But what you may now know is that you’ve been throwing away the healthiest part of your avocado…. the stone.

The Avocado’s Inside Secret

Did you know that the seed holds 70% of the avocado’s antioxidants! And yet, for years, we’ve been tossing it into the trash without a second thought. Also, just as green tea has been praised for its cancer fighting polyphenols, this hard, round avocado super-ball has been given the same distinguished praise. [1]

There’s more: it turns out that avocado seeds also have just as much beneficial soluble fiber as other top rated fiber foods. Along with the soluble fiber, the antioxidants work in the digestive tract to promote optimal digestive health as well as suppress tumor growth. The healthy oils found in the heart of this fruit are a great resource for our skin. Its natural fat helps to keep skin and hair look young, smooth, and supple. In South America, people use the seed as a herbal remedy to treat gastrointestinal tract problems. It has also been used for inflammation and diarrhea. [2]

But How To Eat The Seed…?

It’s understandable why people discard the stone: It’s super hard. My dental plan would probably not cover the cost to repair my teeth after gnawing on a bowling ball-like seed, no matter what the health benefits would be! So let me offer you the technique to access the health benefits of the avocado seed: Make it into powder.

Start by drying out the seed on a sunny window sill – or you can use a food dehydrator. After the avocado stone is thoroughly dry, chop(carefully!) the seed into four pieces. Then place the pieces in your food processor or blender and grind into a powder.

You can sprinkle the avocado seed powder directly on your food, your soups, salads, pastas, and anything else you would like. If you find the taste too bitter, I suggest adding it to a smoothie along with other fruits and veggies to mask its taste. One seed will give you enough powder for two smoothies. Another way to take in the goodness of the avocado seed is to make a tea. Simply place half of a seed in boiling water for 10 minutes or add one tablespoon of ground up seed powder to a cup of boiling water. [3]

Now that you know how powerful the avocado seed is, start collecting them and drying them out!

20 Secrets for a much Longer Life

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

Do not be a couch potato & get into positive things you can do regularly

to extend your life & be happier & healthier as a result

These are some of the main things you can apply to your daily routine.

1…Maintain a Sense of Purpose


Hobbies and activities that have meaning for you may lengthen your life. Japanese researchers found men with a strong sense of purpose were less likely to die from stroke, heart disease, or other causes over a 13-year period compared to those who were less sure of themselves. Being clear about what you’re doing and why can also lower your changes of getting Alzheimer’s disease.

2…Manage Stress


You’ll never completely avoid stress, but you can learn good ways to control it. Try yoga, meditation, or deep breathing. Even a few minutes a day can make a difference.

rainbow line

3…Make Sleep a Priority

Getting enough good quality sleep can lower your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and mood disorders. It’ll also help you recover from illness faster. Burning the midnight oil, on the other hand, is bad for you. Snooze for less than 5 hours a night and you might boost your chances of dying early, so make sleep a priority.


rainbow line

4…Use Safety Gear


Accidents are the fifth most common cause of death in the U.S., and the top cause of death for people ages 1 to 24. Wearing safety gear is a simple way to boost your odds of a long life. For example, seatbelts reduce the chances of death or serious injury in a car wreck by 50%. Most deaths from bike accidents are caused by head injuries, so always wear a helmet.


rainbow line



Letting go of grudges has surprising physical health benefits. Chronic anger is linked to decreased lung function, heart disease, stroke, and other ailments. Forgiveness will reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure, and help you breathe more easily. These benefits tend to increase as you get older.

rainbow line

6…Get Spiritual

People who attend religious services tend to live longer than those who don’t. In a 12-year study of people over age 65, those who went more than once a week had higher levels of a key immune system protein than their peers who didn’t. The strong social network that develops among people who worship together may contribute to your overall health.

rainbow line

7…Drink in Moderation


Heart disease is less common in moderate drinkers than in people who don’t drink at all. On the other hand, too much alcohol pads the belly, boosts blood pressure, and can cause a host of other health problems. If you drink alcohol, the limit should be one drink a day for women and one or two for men. But if you don’t drink, don’t start. There are better ways to protect your heart!


rainbow line

8…Keep Moving


The evidence is clear — people who exercise live longer on average than those who don’t. Dozens of studies show that regular physical activity lowers your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some forms of cancer, and depression. It may even help you stay mentally sharp in into old age. Ten-minute spurts are fine, as long as they add up to about 2.5 hours of moderate exercise

rainbow line

9…Lose Weight

If you’re overweight, slimming down can protect against diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions that take years off your life. Belly fat is bad for you, so focus on deflating that spare tire. A 5-year study of Hispanics and African-Americans suggests eating more fiber and exercising regularly are great ways to whittle your middle.

rainbow line

10…Get Hitched

wedding_rings-on-hands image

Married people tend to outlive their single friends. Researchers say it’s due to the social and economic support that wedded bliss provides. While a current union offers the greatest benefit, people who are divorced or widowed have lower death rates than those who’ve never tied the knot.

rainbow line

11.Eat Like in Okinawa Japan


The people of Okinawa, Japan, once lived longer than any other group on Earth. The region’s traditional diet, which is high in green and yellow vegetables, and low in calories gets the credit. Plus, some Okinawans made a habit of eating only 80% of the food on their plate. Younger generations have dropped the old ways and aren’t living as long as their ancestors.

rainbow line

12…Adopt a Mediterranean Diet


The Mediterranean diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, olive oil, and fish. An analysis of 50 studies involving more than half a million people confirms the benefits. It can put a serious dent in your risk of metabolic syndrome — a mix of obesity, high blood sugar, increased blood pressure, and other factors that make you more likely to get heart disease and diabetes.

rainbow line

13…Embrace the Siesta


A siesta is standard in many parts of the world, and now there’s scientific evidence that napping may help you live longer. A study that involved 24,000 people suggests those who have a regular snooze are 37% less likely to die from heart disease than those who rarely steal a few winks. Researchers think naps might help your heart by keeping stress hormones down.


rainbow line

14…Quit Smoking


It’s no secret that giving up cigarettes can lengthen your days, but the amount of extra time may surprise you. A 50-year British study shows that quitting at age 30 could increase your lifespan by an entire decade. Kicking the habit at age 40, 50, or 60 can add 9, 6, or 3 years to your life, respectively.

rainbow line

15…Choose Friends Wisely

password-protect the big bang trio image

Your friends’ habits rub off on you, so look for buddies with healthy lifestyles. Your chances of becoming obese go up if you have a friend who adds extra pounds. Smoking also spreads through social ties, but the good news is that quitting is also contagious.

rainbow line

16…Make Friends


Here’s one more reason to be grateful for your friends — they might help you live longer. Australian researchers found elderly social butterflies were less likely to die over a 10-year period compared to people with the fewest friends. A look at results from 148 more studies shows a clear link between social ties and a long life.

rainbow line

17…Play to Win


An 80-year study found that people who are conscientious — meaning they pay attention to detail, think things through, and try to do what’s right — live longer. They do more things to protect their health and make choices that lead to stronger relationships and better careers.


rainbow line

18…Protect Your DNA


As you age, the ends of your chromosomes — called telomeres — become shorter. This makes you more likely to get sick. But lifestyle changes can boost an enzyme that increases their length. Plus, studies show diet and exercise can protect  them. The bottom line: Healthy habits may slow aging at the cellular level.

rainbow line

19…Be the best person you can be

older happy couple ride on bikes image

Doing the right thing to & by  your fellow humans will make you more gratified & happy about yourself. This in itself will empower you to do positive things for yourself & others.

rainbow line

20…Compliment your food intake with healthy natural foods


Where you can compliment your food intake with a healthy range of fruits & vegetables from the tropics & elsewhere such as products from the mountain country of the Himalayas & the jungles of the Andes. Eat as organic as possible. Avoid processed foods wherever & whenever possible.

school girls shopDividing Cancer Cells

Cancer is No Excuse: Rose McGrath was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and started a long, difficult fight against the disease. After lengthy treatment, she’s now recovering. “Even though she’s now done with her treatment you still have a very long recovery process because you’ve basically just put two and a half years of poison into your body,” says Rose’s mother Barbara McGrath. “You’re not recovering overnight.” Despite only attending St. Joseph Middle School in Battle Creek, Mich., for 32 days this year, 12-year-old Rose is on track to pass her core classes. The school, however, sent a letter dismissing her due to attendance and academic performance issues, despite accommodations for her medical problems. “These were extraordinary circumstances,” said a Fr. John Fleckenstein of Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools, “but so many accommodations were made we felt eventually it became a point where we really had to help Rose, by being able to make sure that she was getting the assistance that she needed and to learn.” After a massive public uproar over the dismissal, the school invited Rose back, but Barbara is putting her in public school instead. (MS/WWMT Kalamazoo) …Maybe an English teacher can assist school officials with the meaning of the word “help.”

Why a weak handshake is bad news for your heart

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

healthy handshake image

Do it for your heart: A healthy handshake.

The strength of your handshake could indicate the chance of a future heart attack, a major study suggests.

Researchers found that the vigour of a person’s grip could predict the risk of heart attacks and strokes – and was a stronger indicator of death than checking systolic blood pressure.

The study in The Lancet, involving almost 140,000 adults in 17 countries, found weak grip strength was linked to shorter survival and a greater risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Reduced muscular strength, which can be measured by grip strength, has been consistently linked with early death, disability, and illness. But there has been limited research on whether grip strength could be used to indicate heart health.

Grip strength was assessed using a device that measures the force exerted when a subject squeezes an object as hard as possible with their hands.

The findings show that every five-kilo decline in grip strength was associated with a 16 per cent increased risk of death from any cause; a 17 per cent greater risk of cardiovascular death; a 17 per cent higher risk of non-cardiovascular mortality and more modest increases in the risk of having a heart attack (seven per cent) or a stroke (nine per cent).

Overall, grip strength was a stronger predictor of all deaths, including those from heart disease, than systolic blood pressure.

The associations persisted even after taking into account differences in other factors that can affect mortality or heart disease such as age, education level, employment status, physical activity level, and tobacco and alcohol use.

Dr Darryl Leong, of McMaster University in Canada, who was the lead author, said: “Grip strength could be an easy and inexpensive test to assess an individual’s risk of death and cardiovascular disease.

“Further research is needed to establish whether efforts to improve muscle strength are likely to reduce an individual’s risk of death and cardiovascular disease.”

Spring is here, and that means you will soon enjoy cherries and their incredible benefits. In fact, there are many reasons why you should eat more cherries and use them in your recipes, but the major reason is because of their health benefits. I suggest you to enjoy tart cherry varieties, such as Montmorency, to reap all the health benefits of cherries. Without further ado, here are 10 amazing reasons why you should consume more cherries.

1. Boost your energy levels

Consuming cherries helps increase your energy levels naturally. The thing is, the majority of the calories in cherries come from natural sugars, which help boost your mood and increase your energy levels. So, next time you are feeling that terrible midday energy dip, eat a handful of fresh cherries and you will feel much better in no time.

2. Help sleep better

If you are prone to sleep issues, consider eating cherries regularly to improve your sleep. Cherries contain melatonin that helps provide better sleep. Next time you suffer from insomnia, don’t hurry to take a prescription medication that may have nasty side effects, try consuming some cherries every day and see if they help you sleep better.

3. Good for your eyes

Another incredible reason to eat cherries every day is because they are great for your eyes. Cherries contain plenty of vitamin A, and a part of this vitamin is beta carotene that helps promote good vision and keep your eyes healthy. Retinol is another part of vitamin A that helps keep your skin healthy. Cherries actually contain about 20 times more Vitamin A than either strawberries or blueberries, so why not eat them more often?

4. Help prevent cancer

Did you know that by consuming cherries regularly, you can fight certain types of cancers? Cherries are packed with natural, powerful antioxidants that lower your risk of cancer and help with healthy aging. This season, consider adding more cherries to your healthy diet.

5. Improve digestion

Due to their high fiber content, cherries help improve your digestive system and help reduce your cholesterol levels. Sure, you don’t have to eat too many of cherries. A handful of them will be enough for you since it contains about a quarter of the fiber you need to get in a day.

6. Relieve pain and reduce swelling

Cherries are a great source of anthocyanins, which can help reduce pain and swelling from different chronic ailments, including gout and arthritis. If you suffer from arthritis pain, try consuming some cherries instead of taking pills, and see whether it works for you or not.

7. Help prevent muscle cramps

Although bananas have more potassium per serving than ripe cherries, not everybody loves bananas, and you can easily get your potassium from cherries if banana isn’t your favorite fruit. Potassium helps ease and prevent muscle cramps, so it’s always a good idea to have some cherries before or after your exercise. You can also drink cherry juice, if you like. Cherries may also help relieve menstrual pain.

8. Improve your brain function

If you’re feeling a little forgetful, cherries can help to ward off memory loss no matter what your age is. Cherries are known as “brain food” since they are high in powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins, which are great for your brain. So snack on some cherries and improve your brain power.

9. Good for your heart

Foods that are good for your heart are always worth eating, and it’s never too early or too late to begin looking after your heart’s health. Consuming cherries can help reduce your risk of heart disease, and overall cherries are good for your health. Isn’t it a valid reason to eat them more?

10. Have high anti-inflammatory properties

One of the most important health benefits of eating cherries is that they have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. This is great news for runners and athletes, who may be aching after workout, as well as for arthritis sufferers. So, if you’re suffering from this pain now, try drinking diluted tart cherry juice 3 times every day.

With a great number of amazing health benefits, it’s impossible to forget about cherries. You can get all those benefits from fresh cherries, or you can opt for cherry juice or dried cherries. When you buy cherry juice, make sure it’s without any added sugars. Do you love cherries? What is your favorite way to eat them?

Drink THIS First Thing in the Morning to reduce signs of aging & recharge your batteries

This daily trick can help you detoxify, improve your digestion and boost your metabolism & energy levels

warm-lemon drink image
You’re bombarded with toxins in today’s modern world… everywhere from the polluted air you breathe, the water you drink, the shampoos and other cosmetics that lather your body with chemicals, and of course, all of the chemical additives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and other harmful compounds in the food that you eat.

All of these TOXINS can have harmful effects on your body, harming your metabolism and hormones, impairing your digestive system, and zapping your energy levels.

If I could tell you ONE thing that you could do each morning right as you wake up to help your body eliminate some of these toxins, improve your digestion, stimulate your metabolism, and BOOST your energy, would you do it?

Of course you would… and it takes less than 1 minute!

Here’s the trick…

Immediately upon waking each day, squeeze about 1/2 to 1 full lemon (depending on size of the lemon) into an 8 oz glass of warm or room temperature purified water.  This is gentler on your body first thing in the morning compared to ice cold water.  I’ve found that slicing the lemon into quarters before squeezing by hand is easier than squeezing halves.

Drink this at least 10 minutes before eating any food for the day.

Make sure to use fresh organic lemons to make this drink, and not bottled lemon juice.  You want to use organic lemons to avoid the pesticides that can accumulate.
3 Major benefits of this morning drink to your body, health, and energy:

According to a leading health publication,

“The health promoting benefits of lemons are powerful. For centuries, it has been known that lemons contain powerful antibacterial, antiviral and immune boosting components. We know that lemons are a great digestive aid and liver cleanser. 

Lemons contain citric acid, magnesium, bioflavonoids, vitamin C, pectin, calcium and limonene, which supercharge our immunity so that the body can fight infection.

Lemons are considered one of the most alkalizing foods you can eat. This may seem untrue as they are acidic on their own. However, in the body, lemons are alkaline; the citric acid does not create acidity once it has been metabolized. The minerals in lemons are actually what helps to alkalize the blood.  Most people are too acidic (from eating too much sugar and grains), and drinking warm lemon water helps reduce overall acidity, drawing uric acid from the joints.

This reduces the pain and inflammation which many people feel. And the American Cancer Society recommends warm lemon water to encourage regular bowel movements.”

Benefits that you can enjoy:

1. Improves your digestion:

Lemon juice helps your body improve digestion and stimulates bile production. Lemon juice can even be an aid for heartburn and indigestion.
2. Boosts your energy for the day:

Even just the scent of lemon juice has been shown to improve your mood and energy levels, and reduce anxiety.  Plus the detoxifying effect and alkalizing effect of fresh organic lemon juice can improve your energy through the removal of toxins from your body.
3. Helps you to lose fat:

Since lemon juice helps to improve your digestive system, aids in removal of toxins, and increases your energy levels, this all combines together to help you to lose body fat as well through improving your hormonal balance… Yet another reason to add warm lemon water to your daily morning routine!

The 5:2 diet helps beat cancer and Alzheimer’s, study finds


The common eating pattern in modern societies, of three meals per day plus snacks, is actually “abnormal”.

Fasting regimes such as the ‘5:2’ diet could help the body guard against diseases including cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s, according to a new study.

The common eating pattern in modern societies, of three meals per day plus snacks, is actually “abnormal” in terms of human evolution, and is at-odds with the body’s natural rhythms, the paper finds.

The study, a review of a wide range of scientific research into the effects of limiting calorie intake on the human body, calls for doctors to encourage patients to adopt ‘intermittent energy restriction’ diets such as the 5:2 diet, where participants eat normally for five days and then eat no more than 500 calories for two days.

Such eating patterns are in fact much more consistent with that of wild animals and “hunter-gatherer humans [who] rarely, if ever, suffer from obesity, diabetes, and cardio-vascular disease.”

Entitled ‘Meal frequency and timing in health and disease‘, the paper is published today in PNAS, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in the USA.

It surveys over 80 scientific papers spanning biology, neuroscience and oncology into the relationship between meal timings, food quantities and human health.

Fasting, or radically cutting calorie intake, can help the body break down fat and repair cells, reversing the ageing process, shrinking tumours and guarding neurons against damage caused by neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

The paper says: “For many of our ancestors, food was scarce and primarily consumed during daylight hours, leaving long hours of overnight fasting.

“With the advent of affordable artificial lighting and industrialisation, modern humans began to experience prolonged hours of illumination every day and resultant extended consumption of food.”

Disruption of the body’s natural body clock, or “circadian rhythms”, encouraged humans, and domesticated animals, to eat more, making them more susceptible to obesity and associated diseases, the authors say.

The authors include experts from the National Institute of Aging in Baltimore and Harvard Medical School in the US, and the Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester.

Dr Michelle Harvie, research dietician at Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention and co-author of the paper, said: “There are many myths and assumptions concerning diet and eating patterns, including the belief that a healthy lifestyle should involve three square meals, plus snacks, every day.

“However, this common eating pattern is in fact abnormal from an evolutionary perspective. Emerging studies suggest that intermittent periods of energy restriction can in fact improve health and even counteract disease processes, such as the development of breast cancer.

“As more research is done into the relationship between meal frequency and health, it’s important that these eating patterns are incorporated into standard health care policies and that the general population knows how to adapt their diets and lifestyles appropriately.

Heart Attacks And Drinking Warm Water 

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about    Heart Attacks. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not  cold water, maybe it is time we adopt  their  drinking  habit while  eating.
Lifetime Health Natural Supplements - Quality- Purity - Integrity

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It isvery Harmful to have Cold Drink/Water during a meal. Because, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by  the  intestine faster  than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to  cancer .  It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

French fries and Burgers are the biggest enemy of heart health. A coke after that gives more power to this demon. Avoid them for your Heart’s Health.

Common  Symptoms Of Heart Attack. 

A serious note about heart attacks – You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the  jaw line.

You may never have the first  chest  pain during  the course of a heart attack.  Nausea and intense  sweating are  also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.  Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and be aware.  The more we know, the better chance we could survive.
