Hydration During Pregnancy

This is a must read. I for one did not suffer from morning sickness but I also used to drink lots of water in those days.  I also was not aware that dehydration is quite detrimental to the cells of the developing fetus. It is worth reading the article by “WellBeing” as it is very informative. The URL is included below.

Early pregnancy morning sickness is a signal of dehydration of the mother and fetus. It is caused by the water regulatory action of histamine, explains Dr. F. Batmanghelidj. Pregnancy creates a very high demand for water. As the fetus grows into a full term baby, over 1 trillion cell divisions take place. Each new cell must be filled with water. Pregnant women should drink water and eliminate all sources of dehydration, especially the consumption of caffeine and alcohol.

Kangen Water® through the ionization process creates micro-clustering that is able to change the size of the water molecules to smaller groupings of 4-5. Other waters have water molecule groupings of 15-20 that are not able to penetrate the cell, therefore only providing 15% hydration.

How to Prevent Muscle Loss as You Age

This is a big problem for those who are getting up there in age. This article was on ‘Fox news’ and I know lots don’t watch or read Fox news so am forwarding it on to you as I think it is important.

As you get older, changes in your sex drive, energy levels and memory are all things you have to contend with.
Between 5 and 13 percent of people age 60 to 70 and between 11 and 50 percent of those age 80 and older are affected by sarcopenia(muscle loss)

To help prevent this here are some suggestions:-

1. Eat protein-rich foods.
We do not eat enough protein, calories and amino acids. People who doubled up on protein had an increase in muscle protein synthesis. Eat Eggs, chicken, turkey, fish, dairy, beans and legumes they are all great protein sources. Add a whey protein shake into your diet to get your fill.

2. Off to the Gym:
weight training is crucial because it consistently activates and signals the muscles to grow.
150 to 300 minutes of any type of moderate-endurance exercise a week is so good for your muscles

3.  Sleep.
7 to nine hours is recommended

4. Don’t cut carbs.
You need the energy you get from carbs. Aim to get 6 to 11 servings of whole grains, sweet potatoes, beans, legumes and fruit.

5. Get enough vitamin D.
Sunlight is essential. Also get plenty of orange juice, cereals, fatty fish like salmon and mackerel, beef liver or egg yolks.

6. Limit your alcohol intake.
Not a good one for me but try if you will. Women should limit their alcohol consumption to one glass per day — a 5 ounce glass of wine or a 12 ounce beer — and men should limit it to two.

  1. When you should plant in your garden

2.  A giant Celtic cross design, only visible from the sky, has been discovered growing in an Irish forest. The 100-meter (330ft) long religious symbol remained undetected for years until airline passengers noticed it while flying overhead.

The cross in Killea forest in county Donegal caused much confusion until an investigation by UTV revealed it wasn’t aliens bored with crop circles but was instead planned by Liam Emmery, a very creative and talented forester.

Meticulously planting hundreds of trees over a period of years Emmery was able to plan out the design which would reveal itself every autumn to those flying overhead.

Unfortunately Emmery passed away in 2010 aged 51, before his creation became known to the public. His wife had forgotten about his elaborate plan until UTV approached her about it, telling them “I’d forgotten about the plantation, if he was here, we would have all heard about it because he would have been so proud.”

3. There is a “Hangover Bar” in Amsterdam .
It’s the first of its kind in the world – a mecca for anyone who partied a little too hard the night before.
Only open from Friday to Sunday, The Hangover Bar has everything a boozer needs to get back on track.
There’s no cheating your way in for a free bed either – there are ‘hangover inspectors’ guarding the doors.
They breathalyze  you on entry to make sure you still have alcohol in your system – the very opposite of a sobriety test.
Once inside, a green oasis awaits, ready to meet all your hangover needs.
There are beds laid out with accompanying televisions to play your favourite TV shows.
Green turf and towering pot plants weave their way around them, and there’s an oxygen bar to speed up the recovery process.
Foodora has created a special food menu featuring vitamin-boosting smoothies.

“To overcome a hangover there are a few things you need: a good mattress, good food, fun and lots of vitamins”

4. Bob Marley’s youngest son, Damian is turning a former prison for non-violent drug offenders into a pot farm. The Coalinga, CA, prison will grow medical marijuana for state dispensaries is providing 100 new jobs, and its $4.1 million sale has already erased all of the towns debt

5.  Difficulty with eye contact may be a sign of a good conversationalist. A pair of researchers from Kyoto University studied this.  “The dual task of maintaining eye contact (and the inherent intimate connection it involves) while also racking the brain for a word to meet the request is just too demanding – to save itself, the brain pushes for breaking eye contact so it can focus exclusively on finding a word that will fulfill the obligation.”

Essentially, breaking eye contact allows us to better choose our words. Looking someone in the eye may help us better establish an emotional rapport, but looking elsewhere may actually stimulate better conversation.

Ron Chester, 89 years of age, was stopped by the police around 2 am
and was asked where he was going at that time of night.

Ron replied, “I’m on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on
the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late.”

The officer asked, “Really? Who’s giving that lecture at this time of night?”

Ron replied, “That would be my wife.”

  1. Tests conducted by St. Lawrence University in New York found that there were more left-handed people with IQs over 140 than right-handed people. Famous left-handed intellectuals include Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Benjamin Franklin. Less than 1% of the world’s population can be considered truly ambidextrous.

2. The Melanesians of New Guinea are the only dark-skinned group of humans known to have a high blonde hair rate.

3. Vitamin D is unusual because it is the only vitamin that can be synthesized in the body. Sunlight is the main source of Vitamin D, though sunscreen lotions with high SPF can prevent vitamin D formation. Vitamin D is also the only vitamin that is a hormone.

4. Insects such as termites and ants provide 10% of the protein consumed worldwide. Where insects are an integral part of a diet, they contribute as much as 40% of protein.       In the United States, it is estimated that every adult unconsciously consumes one pound of insects each year due to garden produce, poor restaurant and home hygiene, and commercial foods for which the USDA allows a certain amount of insect fragments. Peanut butter, for example, is allowed to have 30 insect fragments per 100 grams.

5. Women are more susceptible to the effects of alcohol especially  wine than men partly because they have less of an enzyme in the lining of the stomach that is needed to metabolize alcohol efficiently.

How To Cure A Hangover

Overdid it? – Here are some suggestions to regain the will to live

1. Researchers from a University in Guangzhou, China tested how 57 different drinks affected the way the body metabolizes alcohol, concluding that Sprie was the most effective at eradicating the effects of the previous night.

2. Eat a big bacon and egg fry up. Eggs contain an amino acid called cysteine which breaks down acetaldehyde, just as your poor liver would. Bacon too has amino acids which will help you feel better. Also eating a greasy meal before you start drinking slows the rate at which you absorb alcohol, so now you have an excuse to eat it before and after a night out.

 

3. In Proof: the science of booze, science journalist Adam Rogers  says the ‘Hair of the dog that bit you’ – i.e. alcohol, may lessen a hangover’s effects though he cautions this is hypothetical. Worth a shot?

 

4. Drink lots of water cause you are going to be dehydrated – idiot. I know, ‘you are never going to drink again’ – heard it before! – I think those words are from  me.
