Changing to a Candida Diet Program

When one is diagnosed with Candida it seems like there is nothing left to eat.  It's quite a challenging transition to come up with ideas on how to make what is available tasty and satisfying.

One girl has been sharing her journey in this realm with a blog.  She wasn't somebody who ever did much cooking, so it was also a transition to try recipes and become comfortable being adventuresome in the kitchen.

She shares a lot of information she found researching on the internet, the products and foods she used, and the emotional side of not being able to eat anything you want to eat.  The bright side is the weight loss she experienced along the way which is a terrific encouraging factor.

Join, Christina at Nature's Healthy Essence, and encourage each other in the journey!

Fluoride - 10,000 Cancer Deaths

One paper entitled Fluoride – A Modern Toxic Waste says the following:

Yiamouyiannis documents research showing that fluoride increases the tumor growth rate by 25% at only 1 ppm, produces melanotic tumors, transforms normal cells into cancer cells and increases the carcinogenesis of other chemicals. For the original references to these studies, refer to Yiamouyiannis’ pamphlet, Lifesavers Guide to Fluoridation.

In 1977, it was shown that fluoridation caused about 10,000 cancer deaths in epidemiological studies by Dr. Dean Burk, former head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute and Yiamouyiannis. Despite the findings occurring in 1977, they were not reluctantly released until 1989. Read the entire article.

Keeping a Healthy Liver

Published in WholeFoods Magazine, December 2011

The human liver performs about 500 vital functions in the body! So, it is important to understand that some of our everyday practices could seriously interrupt liver functions and cause diseases that can otherwise be avoided. Knowing which foods and supplements can benefit the liver can take you a long way in staying healthy (1).

What Does the Liver Do?
One well-known function of the liver is to produce bile, which is responsible for carrying away waste materials in the body and breaking down fats in the small intestine during digestion. Among many other functions, the liver clears the blood of drugs, bacteria and other toxic substances, regulates blood clotting and produces immune factors that resist infections (1).

Causes of Liver Damage
Alcohol abuse has been considered one of the most common causes of liver disease in North America. Staying within healthy limits is very important, as alcohol is directly toxic to liver cells and can lead to liver inflammation, causing the organ to malfunction. Another major cause of liver damage is fat accumulation within the liver, which can lead to a gradual decline in liver function. An overdose of medications or drugs can also lead to liver injury; but, in some cases, they may cause damage even when taken in proper prescribed dosages (2).

Another cause of liver cell inflammation is hepatitis infection, which can be transmitted through fecal ingestion, contaminated blood, sexual contact or contaminated food and water exposure. Other metabolic disorders and abnormalities can also lead to liver damage. One way of keeping your liver in good shape, however, is by adhering to dietary practices and adding the required nutrients that will keep you in good health (2).

Foods to Consume and Avoid
A well-balanced diet, rich in fruits and vegetables, will provide you with the nutrients needed for a healthy liver. Most importantly, the consumption of organically grown foods will minimize your liver’s exposure to harsh agricultural chemicals. Food groups that greatly support liver health are those rich in sulfur; they help the liver in detoxifying prescription medications, pesticides and environmental toxins (3).

Onion, garlic and cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower, are rich in sulfur, which helps in liver detoxification processes. Research indicates that certain spices like turmeric, cinnamon and licorice also have the ability to support your liver’s immune function. High-fiber foods such as whole grain breads, rice and cereals are considered especially helpful in liver health and are highly recommended for people with fatty liver disease (i.e., the build-up of fat in liver cells) (3, 4).

Avoiding fried and other high-fat processed foods containing hydrogenated oils can reduce the risk of liver-related diseases (3). Fat substitutes and kernel oil (e.g., canola, olive, corn, sunflower, peanut and flaxseed oils) require less bile to break down than other oils, and can help those with bile duct disease.

Minimizing salted foods is an important diet recommendation for diseases like cirrhosis (i.e., the scarring and hardening of the liver) and hepatitis C (4). Rather than consuming smoked, salted and cured foods, try seasonings like lemon juice, onion, vinegar, garlic, pepper, mustard, cloves, sage or thyme.

High-calorie foods such as rich desserts, snacks and drinks can be substituted with fruits (3). It is also important for people with hemochromatosis (i.e., the build-up of iron in liver), to keep away from foods and pills that contain iron. Reduced intake of copper-laden foods such as chocolate, nuts, shellfish and mushrooms is recommended for people suffering from Wilson disease, which is caused by the build-up of copper in the body (4).

Supplements for a Healthy Liver
Milk thistle, burdock root, dandelion root and other herbs can be effective in protecting the liver. Milk thistle contains silymarin, which can stimulate the production of new liver cells, prevent liver destruction by toxins and reduce inflammation associated with hepatitis. Burdock root is known to cleanse and purify the blood and liver. Dandelion has been found to increase bile production and promote liver detoxification, and its roots are known to promote liver function (5).

Liver diseases are marked by changes in amino acid metabolism, which is characterized by low levels of circulating branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). A recent study consisting of patients with advanced cirrhosis (6), has demonstrated that long-term BCAA supplementation is associated with decreased frequency of hepatic failure.

BCCA was also found to be associated with decreased frequency of complications of cirrhosis and improved nutritional status when prescribed as a maintenance therapy. While these dietary supplements have the potential to support your liver, always consult with your healthcare provider about what’s best for you.

Relieving Head Pain

Published in WholeFoods Magazine, March 2012

It’s an hour to deadline, and you’ve been staring at a computer screen for hours after a bad night’s sleep. You haven’t eaten all day and that familiar pounding is starting up in the front of your skull. What do you do when aspirin isn’t an option? Don’t stress out! You’ll give yourself a headache.

Those with persistent head pain should seek the help of a healthcare provider. But if you suffer from occasional headaches or have a doctor’s okay, here are some natural alternatives so you can rest your pretty, little head.

Take a Look Around
Many headaches stem from environmental factors that can be avoided. Sometimes, something as little as bright lights, loud noises and particular odors trigger headaches, while certain foods (like aged cheeses, chocolate, dairy, meats containing nitrates, citrus or fermented foods) and alcohol could, too (1).

Caffeine headaches are caused by a coffee or tea dependency, which emerge when a daily dose of caffeine is missed. However, too much caffeine could have the same painful effect. Keeping a consistent diet while avoiding skipped meals and excessive caffeine could be an easy solution to chronic head pain, along with staying away from cigarette smoke (1).

Head in a Vice
While this is good advice, sometimes it’s not so easy to get rid of head pain. Tension headaches are the most common kind of head pain; they are often caused by tight neck, jaw or shoulder muscles, stress and anxiety, teeth grinding, overworking and poor sleeping positions (2).

Head pain doesn’t always stay contained to the noggin. Any migraine sufferer can attest to the all-over debilitating feeling one gets when having a migraine attack. Symptoms include throbbing pain often on one side of the head, pain in the temples, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, fatigue, vision problems and sensitivity to light, noise or movement (1). Even after the attack has faded, which can take anywhere from four to 72 hours, you’re often left feeling drained and disoriented.

Although migraines are in a different ballgame than headaches, the triggers are largely the same. The cause of migraines is still unsure, but some researchers believe head pain may be caused by changes in blood flow to the brain (2). Women are three times more likely to have chronic migraines than men, and heredity may also play a role. Other risk factors include being younger than 40 and taking birth control pills (1).

Herbal Aids
Although we’re not advocating the use of aspirin, white willow bark contains salicin that was used to help develop aspirin in the 1800s. As far back as 400 BC, salicin has often been used to help relieve pain and inflammation, but the bark itself is thought to have antioxidant, antiseptic and immune-boosting properties and is also used for easing lower back pain, osteoporosis, menstrual cramps and fever (3). People who are allergic to aspirin or have asthma, diabetes, gout, gastritis, hemophilia or stomach ulcers and children under the age of 16 should avoid willow bark because of its aspirin-like qualities (3).

The leaves, stem and flowers of the passionflower are used as a calming herb to help cut down on anxiety, depression and insomnia. Scientists believe the herb makes you feel more relaxed by increasing levels of chemicals called gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain, causing brain cell activity to lower and the body to relax (4). Passionflower is often combined with other relaxation herbs, like valerian and lemon balm, which may also have positive effects on headaches (4). If you are taking sedatives, blood thinners or certain antidepressants, it may be best to avoid passionflower as it could make sedatives and MAO inhibitors stronger and blood thinners weaker (4).

Other traditional herbs include butterbur and feverfew. Their extracts are used to reduce head pain, as studies suggest they help reduce the duration and frequency of recurring migraines (1). Pregnant or breastfeeding women should avoid butterbur and feverfew, along with those who are taking blood thinners.

Non-Herbal Aids
There are also some non-herbal solutions to head pain. 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid made inside the body from trytophan, which is then converted into serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates feelings of happiness and well-being. 5-HTP, researchers believe, reduces the intensity and frequency of migraines by regulating blood vessels with abnormal levels of serotonin, a possible reason why migraines occur in some cases (1). 5-HTP should not be combined with anti-depressants.

An up-and-comer for head pain care is vitamin B-12/riboflavin, which is said to reduce the frequency and duration of migraines (1). Migraine sufferers often have lower levels of magnesium. In one study, participants who took magnesium had their recurring migraines reduced by 41.6% (1). Magnesium is recommended for women who have migraines triggered by their menstrual cycles, and side effects include possible lower blood pressure and diarrhea.

Proof That Junk Food Makes You Miserable

The study, carried out at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, suggests that people who eat junk food are 51 per cent more likely to develop depression than those that don't.

The study also shows that those eating junk food—such as hamburgers, hot dogs and pizza—are more likely to be single, less active and work longer. So, depression's hardly a suprising trait to round things off.

Speaking to Medical Express, Almudena Sanchez-Villegas, one of the researchers, explains that the quantity of junk food is also important: "The more fast food you consume, the greater the risk of depression... [but] even eating small quantities is linked to a significantly higher chance of developing depression." Read the entire article.

Walking Protects Against Memory Loss, Dementia

From AARP Bulletin

Walking may be the single best — and easiest — exercise you can do to improve your health in 2012.

Not only will going for a daily walk help you feel better now, it will help you maintain your independence and ability to do daily tasks as you age, says Barbara Bushman, a health professor at Missouri State University who has helped older, sedentary men and women start a walking routine.

Research also has shown that walking regularly can help protect the aging brain against memory loss and dementia, help cut the risk of heart disease, and reduce the chance of developing type 2 diabetes in high-risk adults by a whopping 60 percent. Read the entire article.

The Power of Soy

From CNN

Soy's biggest nutritional claim to fame is its complete protein, one of the only plant proteins that contains all nine essential amino acids our bodies need from our diets to function properly. This makes it an ideal substitute for meat, poultry, and eggs.

In fact, a half cup of cooked soybeans supplies about one-third of your necessary daily protein, for a mere 149 calories (versus about 230 for one serving of cooked ground beef). That protein and the fiber it contains make it incredibly filling. Plus, soybeans are cholesterol-free and lower in heart-unhealthy saturated fat than meat and dairy.

Soy also packs a number of phytochemicals, including isoflavones, which may work together to help fight conditions like cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and breast cancer. (Though you might have heard that women with a history of breast cancer should avoid soy, recent research suggests that's probably not necessary, says Karen Collins, R.D., nutrition adviser to the American Institute for Cancer Research.)

3 Harmful Plastics to Remove

Plastic can seem pervasive at times. From food packaging and storage to flooring and household goods, plastic is everywhere. There are a number of ways that we try to eliminate plastic from our lives—taking reusable shopping bags to market, avoiding processed pre-packaged foods, eschewing the use of water bottles—but without drastic measures it can be nearly impossible to rid this non-biodegradable substance from our lives for good.

Not all plastic is created equally, so if you’re picking and choosing plastics to rid from your life, start with these.

Probiotics: Good For The Heart

Probiotics are synonymous with digestive health, but new data suggest we should take a closer look at their benefits for heart health.

A team from the Medical College of Wisconsin induced an intestinal imbalance of bacteria with antibiotics in rats. They were given a probiotic drink with Lactobacillus plantarum 299v (Goodbelly), which was said to decreased circulating leptin levels by 41%. This hormone is very high in many overweight people, and studies link high leptin levels to increased risk of heart disease. The probiotic drink also reduced heart attacks by 29% in the rats.

Additional information about this research can be found in The Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology.

Grape Seed Fights Cancer in Study

Impressive data published in Carcinogenesis showing grape seed extract killed cancer cells in mice and left healthy ones alone.

Researchers say the extract creates the perfect conditions to discourage cancer growth. These include damage to cancer cells' DNA and decreased levels of molecules that enable its repair. These results were accomplished without toxicity.

"I think the whole point is that cancer cells have a lot of defective pathways and they are very vulnerable if you target those pathways.. The same is not true of healthy cells," says Rajesh Agarwal, Ph.D., investigator at the University of Colorado Cancer Center and professor at the Skaggs School of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

7 Foods That Should Never Cross Your Lips

Clean eating means choosing fruits, vegetables, and meats that are raised, grown, and sold with minimal processing. Often they're organic, and rarely (if ever) should they contain additives. But in some cases, the methods of today's food producers are neither clean nor sustainable. The result is damage to our health, the environment, or both.

So we decided to take a fresh look at food through the eyes of the people who spend their lives uncovering what's safe—or not—to eat. We asked them a simple question: "What foods do you avoid?" Their answers don't necessarily make up a "banned foods" list. But reaching for the suggested alternatives might bring you better health—and peace of mind. Read the entire article.

Premature Graying: Reasons & Options

From WebMd.com

Contrary to popular belief, stress has not been definitively shown to cause gray hair. Scientists don’t know exactly why some people go gray early, but it’s largely determined by genetics.

Some autoimmune and genetic conditions are associated with premature graying, including vitiligo, Werner syndrome, and alopecia areata - which causes only the colored hairs to fall out and look like the hair turned white overnight, Benabio says.

A vitamin B-12 deficiency or problems with the pituitary or thyroid gland can cause premature graying that’s reversible if the problem is corrected, Benabio says.

WebMD spoke to gray hair experts about the science behind premature graying, possible health concerns, and advice for every stage of the process. Read the entire article.
