Gut Health – Essential to Good Health

 

I wrote an article on this subject on June 3rd 2018. Many studies have been made recently only to discover if you don’t have a healthy gut you probably do not have a great immune system and suffer from many different ailments. It affects your brain, hormones, joint pain etc and has a great influence on depression, sleep, being over weight and other chronic problems. There are a number of articles on this subject which we never really considered until now. Those little micro organisms  in your stomach are very important and need to be introduced to our gut on a regular basis. Good sugar free yogurt, fermented food, good water (Kangen water ) are all beneficial to the gut.

If your life is in the fast lane then getting the essentials for your gut is near impossible. I have been introduced to a product that has done years of research on this subject and come up with a great product which I believe to be untouchable by other products. I kid you not. If you are wanting quality of life then you have to look at this and consider giving it a go. It is one of Isagenix products and if you want to find out more about them go to the Isagenix sites below.

2. Boiling rice with a teaspoon of coconut oil and leaving it to cool for 12 hours before you eat it, can slash the amount of kilojoules  your body absorbs by up to 60 percent.

Sri Lankan researchers found the combination  of oil and cool temperatures can significantly boost the rice’s resistant starch. Sounds good to me

 

3.  30g of cottage cheese eaten half an hour before bed increases your exercise gains. Florida state University researchers found that people who eat a protein rich snack at night experience improvements in their muscle quality, metabolism and over all health without gaining extra body fat. I think I have written about this before but I am inclined to repeat myself at times.

 

4. University of Freiburg in Germany found that depression sufferers soaking in a hot tub for about 30 minutes and then wrapping themselves in a warm  blanket for 20 minutes twice a week had a great improvement from the symptoms. They also found it boosted the temperament far more effectively than exercise. (Sound good to me).

 

5.  One of my all time favorite movies ‘Titanic’.  One of the most touching  stories was of a couple married for many years. Ida Straus gave up her spot on a lifeboat to stay with her husband of 41 years. Isidor, when he was offered a spot next to his wife he refused to take it because there were still women and children on board .

Instead they put their maid on the lifeboat, wrapped her in Ida’s fur coat. The last sight of them was both sitting together on the deck.

The Strauss were not far from a member of their family on the night of their deaths. Their eldest son, Jesse Isidor, the US Ambassador to France, was traveling back to Paris on the Amerika, which had sent Titanic an ice warning earlier that day. Jesse Isidor had also sent his parents a personal telegram, mentioning the ice he had seen.

Isidor’s body was recovered by the Mackay-Bennett. A funereal service for Isidor was delayed for a few days in the hopes that Ida’s body might too be recovered, allowing the two who had lived and died together to also share a funeral—but Ida’s body was never found. Several days later, over twenty thousand people gathered at Carnegie Hall in New York City for a memorial service in the Strauss honor.

EXPOSED: Common Types Of Toxic Water That Might Be Killing you💦

 

This is a very interesting article, especially if you find you have a health problem that you really cannot understand why or how. Look at water that you are drinking. The water that you are consuming may be your problem. Try changing you supply of water and see if it makes any difference to your health.

It could be many things like depression –  (you don’t know why you feel this way).  Stomach ache – done tests and find no problem.  Headaches – find no results in tests why you are having headaches. The list can go on and on.

Once again look at the water you are drinking.

You could call this a sales pitch I guess but I am such a believer in the K8 Kangen water machine that I believe it should be on your Christmas list or at least your New Year list to improve your health. I do not promote anything unless  I have tried it and I have had my machine for over a year now and I cannot recommend it enough.

The water streaming from the water fountain isn’t as safe as we believed when we were children: it could be cutting days from our lives. In fact, there are countless compounds (1) that are present in toxic water wells all over the world. The problem isn’t isolated to developing countries. The tragedy in Flint, Michigan proved that we need to re-examine the water we are drinking right here at home.

The human body is composed of nearly 75% water, so it is vital to find out what exactly you are putting into your body and how it affects your health. HFR has compiled a list of the most common contaminants that are present in the drinking water in America. Keep reading below to find out what invisible contaminants may be lingering in your faucet:

Dioxins

Cancer-causing agents that have recently been reported in high levels within nearly 30 water wells in Harris County. (2) These compounds are detrimental to human health (3) because they cause reproductive and developmental problems because they target the immune system, keeping your body from being able to heal properly.

Fluoride

Our water, toothpaste, and mouth rinses have been fluoridated for decades, and because it is believed to prevent tooth decay, does not relinquish the harm it causes to your body and brain. A study (4) conducted at Harvard’s School of Public Health not only concludes that fluoridated water lowers children’s IQ, but it also greatly hinders neurological development.

Fluoride proponents have justified its use for years because of ‘oral health benefits,’ but the tax it is taking on your brain is not worth it! There is also research (5) stating that there was actually a decrease in dental decay after fluoride was removed from water in East Germany, so why is this poison still being added to drinking water all over the world? There is even a link to increased bone tumors, or osteosarcomas, that were present after fluoridated water was introduced to a population of rats.

Hormones

Hormones, such as estrogen, are coming out of your tap every time you get a glass of water. This is an issue because it is beginning to impact aquatic life (6) by disrupting the male-to-female ratio in fish. An overdose of these hormones has also created an influx of intersex fish, which are a combination of the male and female genders. Just imagine what it could be doing to you! These chemical compounds become present in the water when people flush or pour their medications down the drain, or even dispose of them in the trash where they are burned in landfills. If you have unused medication you can properly dispose or return them at a location near you. (7)

E. Coli (0157:H7)

There are many reports of E. Coli and other bacteria present in not only drinking water but even at the beach! If your area has an E. Coli outbreak, adults are still advised to shower, as long as no water is swallowed. It is also recommended to use boiled or bottled water to brush your teeth. You can also boil water for 1-3 minutes (depending on elevation level) allow to cool, cover tightly, and refrigerate to store safely. E. Coli contamination has even led to death in some and created gastrointestinal issues in many others. If you live in the United States and would like to know if your local water wells have been contaminated, you can contact state certification officers at this website. (8)

Flesh-Eating Bacteria

A terrible outbreak of flesh-eating bacteria has gripped the Southern coast of the United States. Flesh-eating bacteria, or vibriosis, are present in beaches that come in contact with the Gulf of Mexico. If you have open wounds, it is heavily advised to stay out of waters that could be contaminated with this deadly bacteria. It can also be contracted from eating contaminated raw seafood.

If you believe you may have been exposed, it is best to act promptly by contacting paramedics immediately, as these deadly toxins spread rapidly, leaving dying tissues behind. You can monitor recent outbreaks that have been in America(9) and in Northwest Spain(10), so be cautious if you are visiting Galicia, Spain, or Florida, Texas, and Louisiana in the U.S. this summer!

Heavy Metals

There are dozens of toxins that are present in our sinks, showers, and water fountains, but who would have guessed that there are even heavy metals that are floating around completely invisible to the naked eye? The best way to prevent these contaminants from making their way into your body when cooking, showering or drinking the tap water (which we do not recommend) is to choose cold over hot water since lower amounts of lead are present, and opt for filtered, purified, or distilled water.

Remember that not all bottled water is safer than tap water! Here is a list (11) of the worst 35 contaminants, *internal scream* with a summary of how they are slowly killing you. Follow these helpful tips (12) to naturally detox your body and brain if you already have been exposed to a toxic level of heavy metals.
