The symptoms of anemia are very imperceptible at first and include weakness, fatigue, dizziness, headaches and heart palpitations. These symptoms result from the body not getting enough oxygen through the bloodstream. It can become a life-threatening condition if left untreated for a long time.
I’m actually going to tell you something strange and awesome: what you eat can actually help you keep cool in the hottest months. Ayurvedic and Chinese doctors have been prescribing cooling foods for thousands of years; why not give it a try?
Chayote, commonly called vegetable pear, is a member of the gourd family and is native to Central America – an amazing addition to the green superfoods family. Various Central American cultures have been using this plant as a staple in their diet and, believe it or not, as a way to dissolve kidney stones and treat other urinary disorders.
To make acid reflux heartburn go away permanently, you must change your diet altogether. Luckily, a GERD diet designed to prevent acid reflux disease is usually pretty simple to follow and good for you for many other reasons as well.

Today, antibiotics are prescribed for all infections indiscriminately and as a result of this, there is increased microbial resistance, the evolution of super-bugs like the MRSA’s, the ESBL organisms, the resurgence of fatal viral infection and fungal diseases, and a population that is grossly immunologically compromised. So, we’d like to recommend some natural alternatives to antibiotics.
One thing that the Atkins Diet has consistently failed to do is reduce levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol – (LDL-C, that is, the “bad” cholesterol). This is because of the high levels of meat and dairy that the Atkins diet requires in order to be effective. Now, Dr. David J. A. Jenkins has made news by coming up with a potential alternative – the “Eco-Atkins” diet – a low-carb, high-protein, entirely vegan regimen.
Kale, the nutritious, dark-green member of the Brassica family, is one of the best values in the vegetable world in terms of nutrition-calorie ratio. Kale is truly a superfood that deserves more attention than it gets. The best way to consume it is to eat it raw (in salads etc) or lightly steamed (this keeps the nutrients available).
To me, there are two sides of “healthy eating.” One side is about making sure that you’re getting the proper nutrients – vitamins, minerals, protein, calcium, iron, and all the rest. But the other side has to do with the idea of environmental health: when we eat healthy, we’re not only concerned with our own health, but that of the world around us.
In recent years, there’s been an increase in media coverage of periodic fasts – how they can increase your life span, help you lose weight, give you more energy, and offer other health benefits.
