Protein Supplementation for Anorexics

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 Supplementation  No comments


It has been suggested that protein supplementation for anorexics is not a viable cure for the condition. This is because anorexia nervosa is a serious psychological condition in which stick-thin girls with not an ounce of body fat believe themselves to be too fat. This is not a condition that can be cured by diet, but some of its symptoms can be partially controlled by diet if the patient can be persuaded to take it.

If left untreated, anorexia nervosa leads inevitably to death by malnutrition as many prominent cases have demonstrated. The cases of Vocalists Karen Carpenter and Lina Zavaroni are likely the best known, and probably the most tragic. Recent cases involving modeling sisters Luisel and Eliana Ramos died within six months of each other between 2006 and 2007...

How Our Lifestyle Choices Are Causing Us to “Sink” into Chronic Illness

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 Chronic Illnesses  No comments

Current science continues to demonstrate that the reason we move away from health and develop chronic illness is due to our environment rather than our genes. Less than 1% of chronic illness is truly genetic in nature. Essentially, this means that chronic illness is preventable.

Yet over half of the American population has been diagnosed with a chronic illness and 80% of all health care spending (doctors’ visits, prescriptions, hospitalizations, etc.) is a result of these conditions of lifestyle.

This number is expected to rise astronomically over the next few years. In fact, many say this single problem will bankrupt our nation. Interesting. It’s particularly interesting since science tell us this is completely preventable!

The Antioxidants – Vitamin C – Vitamin E –Selenium – Do Antioxidants Reverse Aging

Thursday, June 15, 2017 DietNutrition  No comments



There is nothing new to report on the health benefits of antioxidant vitamins and minerals.  The vitamin stores advertise antioxidants in a manner that can leave one with the impression that they were discovered recently.  However, the truth is, the theory on antioxidants and their antiaging benefits was published in 1956.

I read the article titled, “Free Radical Theory of Aging,” in Life Magazine in 1964, if my memory serves me correctly.  The theory was published by Dr. Denham Harman.  It states, in layman terms, that free radicals are created when a cell divides into two.  The newly created free radicals damage nearby cells.  In this scenario, you have one new cell created but several are damaged.  This is how oxidants cause aging – or degeneration...

Following a fitness training schedule is the key to an effective training program. It not only involves planning the days of the week, but the time as well. Scheduling which days to do the exercise routine has its benefit, but having a schedule can help plan out the activity needed to be done, and thus the improvement. A fitness regime does not consist of one type of workout alone. In many cases, body systems and muscle groups are affected by the workouts and exercises that are integrated.
