What is in Keto Diet

What is in Keto Diet

What is in Keto Diet has been sweeping the nation for the past few years or more.  The reason why is because it is effective. In other words, it is popular because it works!

Now, to be clear, it is not a magic bullet, it does take some changes, and effort,  but if you can stick with the plan, it will work for you.

I will explain what Keto is. I will also tell you what the Keto Diet is. I will tell you what the Keto Diet is not. And, most importantly, I will tell you exactly how you can be successful with it.

What is the Keto Diet

The keto diet is not some complex, difficult to learn and put into action diet plan that you have to study for.  The keto diet is really just a change in the way you eat.  This diet when done correctly can make a fat burning machine out of your body.

It can also assist you with building muscle, insulin resistance, and hormone balance, and regulation.  Normally the body burns sugar for energy. With the Keto Diet, we shift from burning sugar for energy to burning fats, and ketones for energy.

Also called the ketogenic diet, it is a high fat, low carbohydrate plan for the way you eat.  Eating very few carbs, the right amount of protein, and more high fats puts your body into what is known as ketosis.

What is in keto diet
It is important to have your macros in the right proportions.

The general rule of thumb in a properly proportioned ketogenic diet is to have 60%-70% fats, 25%-30% protein, and 5%-10% carbs.

These are referred to as your ‘Macros’.  It normally takes from two to four weeks to achieve the ketosis state.

Click here for the 28 Day Keto Challenge

When your body is in this ketosis state it forces your body to burn more fat instead of carbs for it’s fuel.  When you are in this state of ketosis, your liver is generating ketones which are a fuel.

Your liver is also depositing these ketones into your blood stream. You should notice increased energy, as well as a decreased sweet craving.

Lack of eating sweets can also help with weight loss, as eating sugary foods can slow your fat burning metabolism. This ketosis state can often bring about fast, significant loss of weight.

Foods that used to be thought of as weight gainers like cheese, bacon, hamburgers, and steak are encouraged in the Keto Diet.

Other clean fats such as avocados, nuts like macadamias, brazil nuts, and pecans, seeds, beef, lamb, pork, chicken, wild game, fish, olive oil, coconut oil, butter, heavy cream, eggs, cream cheese, and unsweetened almond milk are acceptable foods.

It is important to eat free range chicken, grass fed beef that has not been fed GMO grains, and organic fruits and vegetables.

Additionally, it is ok to drink water, apple cider vinegar, coffee, tea, dry red wines such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and pinot noir. Drinks made with berries that don’t have sugar added are also fine.

Your approved vegetable list includes green beans, brussel sprouts, kale, zucchini, avocado, spinach, spinach, broccoli, and cabbage, among others.

With the keto diet it is also important to know what not to eat.  Due to the fact that glucose closes off ketosis, it is important not to eat foods that convert quickly in the bloodstream to glucose.

Glucose slows down your fat burning metabolism. Stay away from any foods that are high on the glycemic index.

Even some healthy foods like apples, and carrots rank high on the glycemic index, and are a big no no for a successful keto diet plan.

Other foods you should avoid that would also rank high on the glycemic index are high carb foods, breads, cookies, pastas, bananas, beer, sodas, candy, and juices.

Benefits of a Keto Diet

What is in keto diet
A ketogenic diet can lower the amount of inflammation in the body.

As a result of losing weight and fat with the keto diet, there are many additional benefits that go along with it.  When we start the ketogenic diet, we lower the amount of inflammation in the body. Inflammation is known to be the root cause of many diseases, and health conditions.

Inflammation can bring about heart disease, cancer, neurological problems, epilepsy, Alzheimers disease, Parkinson’s disease, and many other troubling health problems.

It is possible to reverse these conditions with a keto diet, and it is also possible to lower your risk factors for developing these health conditions with a ketogenic diet.

Another great benefit with the keto diet is you will notice that your skin, and hair will improve.

You will notice a suppression of appetite which will assist in weight loss, and provide a savings of time and money normally spent to eat meals. In addition to burning more fat than before, you should also have an increase in energy, strength, and endurance.

How to Tell if You Are in Ketosis

Ketosis is the state that your body is in where it is burning fat for energy instead of burning sugar for energy. Normally it takes 2 to 4 weeks to bring or shift your body into ketosis. So, how do you know if you are in ketosis?

Unfortunately most signs that you are in ketosis are not pleasant. Keep in mind though, that these are only very short term/temporary, and will pass.

Physical signs begin with what is commonly called the Keto Flu. You should begin by experiencing symptoms which are feelings of fatigue, weakness, and overall feeling kind of blah.

But, these feeling should diminish fairly quickly, and if you hang in there, you will be glad that you did.  You should soon begin to see fast weight loss for the first week or two of ketosis.

This happens primarily because previously stored fluid is jettisoned off as your glycogen stores are used up. As long as you stay on your keto diet, you should continue to lose fat.

Diarrhea, and constipation are usual side effects in the beginning stages, normally the first week or two. These will dissipate with time.  Insomnia, and other sleep disturbances are also common in the starting stages of keto.

What is in keto diet
Sleep disturbances are one way to tell you are in ketosis, and are temporary.

After a few weeks these should stop, and should be replaced by easier, and sounder sleep than before the ketogenic diet was started.

Halitosis, or other wise known as bad breath or keto breath is also a common symptom of the keto state.

A lot of people experience the smell of acetone in their breath. This can be a smell like maple syrup or a fruity type smell. Acetone is merely the by product of the generation of ketones in your body.

Your sweat, and urine will also have an unpleasant smell. Keep in mind that these are only temporary and should go away within a short time. During this phase of transition you will notice that you will lack endurance, and a decreased performance.

You won’t be able to work out as hard, or for as long a duration as before. Once you have fully transitioned into ketosis, these will disappear.

Your workouts will then allow you to burn more fat than before, and you will have more energy, and you will be able to work out harder and longer, if you so choose.

Another sign that you are likely in ketosis, is a lack of hunger. Your appetite will most likely decrease as you move into ketosis. As I mentioned previously, this is another benefit in that it will assist in your weight/fat loss efforts, and likely save you some cash in the process.

How to Succeed with the Keto Diet

Research has determined that those that are successful with the Keto Diet all have one thing in common. They have a plan.

Most people on a new diet have no plan. A plan that tells them what to do, what not to do, and when to do it.

A plan that they can refer to, and follow through the entire process. A plan that will keep them on track, and not let them go off the rails, if you will.  You need a daily plan to carry you through the vital first month.

With no plan it is way too easy to allow peer pressure to knock you off course, to make bad decisions, and to be unprepared, so why attempt it?

There is one plan that is easy to follow, and if you just do so, you will succeed.  You are never left to figure things out on your own.  There is nothing left to chance. It includes a 28 day meal plan.

What is in Pop

What is in pop
Soda pop is an oft consumed beverage throughout the world.

What is in Pop or Soda Pop is information that everyone should know before they consider opening another bottle or can of it.

I stopped drinking soda pop some 25 years ago once I learned what was in it, and what the ingredients did to my body.

I have had maybe 3 cans of soda pop in those 25 years, and it was only because there was nothing else around to wash my food down with.

My body immediately revolted after I drank it, it made me feel like warmed over dung, and I realized then  that it was a big mistake, even though it was only once in a blue moon.

Once the body is healthy from being fed real food, it quickly lets you know that unhealthy so called food is no longer permitted.

And what about diet pop? Is it any better or healthier since it is diet? Unfortunately, diet pop may be worse for you than regular pop. And you are about to discover that regular soda is anything but good for you.

In fact, it may be the single most unhealthy thing that we put in our bodies. And many of us drink soda pop on a very regular basis.

To prove this point, have you ever seen someone pour a can of pop on the terminals of a corroded battery in a car? The soda does a nice job of breaking up the corrosion, so that the connection between the battery terminals and the battery have a solid, smooth metal to metal join.

If soda pop can do this to built up battery acid corrosion on a car’s battery, imagine what it does to the inside of your body.

It is interesting that there are different names for soda, soda pop, pop, soft drinks, and coke. What this drink is called mostly depends on where you are in the US, and for that matter, the world.

Where I grew up in the midwest we called it soda or the generic name for soda, coke. When I lived in Wyoming it is called pop by the locals there, at least in the area that I lived.

In California, there is a mixed bag. I have heard it called soda pop, soda, and pop, even the Spanish name of soda  el refresco, and la gaseosa in southern California.

Soft drinks is a term that I heard at the movies for the first time, and many times after that.  At the drive-in movies to be exact.  Yes, I go back that far.

In a recent survey, nearly half of Americans polled said that they drank soda every day.  The average intake was 2 1/2 glasses of soda pop a day.

I will describe what is in pop. I will also tell you which ingredients are harmful to you and why. I will also provide some healthy alternative drinks to the extraordinarily unhealthy typical soda pop that you may have been drinking your entire life.

What is in Pop?

What is in pop
What is in pop is usually very unhealthy.

There are many different brands, and types of soda pop. There will be some variances of ingredients depending on the brand of soda you have.

Read the label to verify what the ingredients for that particular brand of soda are.  The conventional brands of soda pop still have much these same ingredients, as do many other brands.

Refined Sugar  Standard soda pop contains a large amount of refined sugar also known as sucrose, to provide sweetness. which by the way, is one of the most unhealthy substances you can subject your body to.

Prolonged use can cause diabetes, obesity, can feed cancer or accelerate cancer. Don’t forget about tooth decay, heart disease, and liver damage, not necessarily in that order.

High Fructose Corn Syrup  Taken from corn, it is a concentrated type of sugar. Soda is also sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, in addition to refined sugar. Usually one or the other, sucrose, or high fructose corn syrup is the soda maker’s sweetener of choice.

Soft drink companies often use high fructose corn syrup instead of refined sugar based on lower costs, ease of use, and lasts longer, or has an extensive shelf life.

High fructose corn syrup can cause obesity, and in turn cause metabolic syndrome which encompasses high blood pressure, and increased triglyceride levels, as well as lower HDL levels, and higher LDL cholesterol levels.

As a result of this, cardiovascular health issues can occur such as heart disease, heart attacks, and  stroke. If that wasn’t enough, your risk of Type 2 diabetes goes way up.

Phosphoric Acid  This nasty substance is a staple in most regular sodas. Phosphoric acid leaches the vital mineral calcium from your bones. This of course can lead to bone issues like osteoporosis.

What is in pop
Phosphoric acid can also cause kidney stones.

It also greatly increases your risk of developing kidney stones, and over time can lead to other serious health problems, such as endometriosis in women. Can also cause stomach issues such as gas, bloating, and indigestion.

Caffeine  Caffeine is a diuretic which may bring on dehydration which can cause stomach, and digestive problems.

Caffeine can also flog your adrenal glands, cause anxiety, and panic attacks, prevent sleep, constrict blood vessels, trigger migraine headaches, cause nervousness or jitters, and increase heart rate.

Aspartame  An artificial sweetener found mostly in diet soft drinks. Aspartame is an excitotoxin that can excite nerve cells, and brain cells to death.

Citric Acid  Another harmful substance found in sodas, citric acid can destroy the outer layer or enamel of your teeth, thus making them more prone to cavities, and to tooth decay.

Sodium Benzoate  Also called E211, it is used as preservative in soda pop, in addition to other processed foods in order to prevent molding.

This sodium benzoate or E211 can cause significant cell damage and may also speed cell aging. Consistent drinking of sodas may instigate metabolic disease creation by way of increased cell aging. Additional common side effects of E211 are  dizziness, headaches, hyperactivity, and sleep disorders.

Colorings and Dyes  Artificial caramel coloring provides cola with it’s classic brown color. Artificial dyes like the yellow dye tartrazine are utilized in many light lemon colored sodas.

Both of these unnatural ingredients have a carcinogenic aspect which means it increases your risk of developing cancer.  Tartrazine also has the unpleasant attribute of worsening symptoms of asthma, as well as increasing the incidence of asthma attacks.

Natural Flavors  This purposely deceiving term is used in sodas and other processed foods. It can be a cover for MSG, or monosodium glutamate which is a flavor enhancer. MSG is also an excitotoxin that can excite nerve cells, and brain cells to death.

Other health issues caused by drinking soft drinks include but are not limited to, altered brain protein levels, asthma and skin allergies, premature birth in pregnant women, increased risk of developing Alzheimers Disease, and can cause violent behavior. Pop also depletes the system of other important minerals besides calcium like zinc, and magnesium.

Healthier Alternative Drinks to Soda Pop

What is in pop
Filtered water is a healthy alternative to soda pop.

There are other drinks on the market that are also unhealthy. I strongly suggest that you read the label on any drink you are considering buying.

If you see any of these previously listed ingredients, you may want to look for a healthier alternative.

Some of the healthier alternatives to soft drinks are:

Water  The fact is that most people are dehydrated, which means they are lacking in adequate water.  One of the reasons for this is drinking caffeinated sodas, caffeinated coffee,  and other diuretic processed foods and drinks.

One of the complaints I hear from people when told they should drink more water is that it has a bland taste, no flavor. This may be the case initially when someone gives up drinking pop, and other unhealthy drinks, but as the body adjusts to a more healthy state, you will crave water, and you will find that it goes down just fine.

Adding a bit of fruit to your filtered water will improve the taste, and add some healthy benefits.

Of course, tap water should be avoided as it contains many impurities that can negatively affect your health.  Filtered tap water, on the other hand, can provide an acceptable source of drinking water.  There are many different types of water filters on the market.

The prices among these filters can vary widely, but many are affordable, and when you compare the cost to what you spend on sodas and other unhealthy drinks, there may even be a savings for you.

These water filters include charcoal filters or activated charcoal filters, reverse osmosis filters, infrared filters, UV filters, and distillation filters. In addition, there are many good bottled water alternatives.

Soda water or seltzer can provide the carbonation of soda, and has more flavor than plain water in most cases. Be sure though that it doesn’t contain any harmful ingredients, as there are many of these drinks on the market.

Bottled water is far better than drinking pop or unfiltered tap water in most cases, but if bottled in plastic, it is not ideal due to potential impurities in the plastic that could leach into the water, as well as possible harm that could be caused to the environment from the plastic waste.

Juices and Smoothies  Beware of store bought juices, and smoothie type drinks. Always read the ingredient label to be sure that you are not being tricked into thinking you are buying something healthy, when in fact you are not.

The best way to ensure that your juice or smoothie drink will be 100% healthy is to make it yourself. Purchase a good blender, mixer, or juicer, and buy raw, organic produce from your trusted organic source and simply make your own.

To lower your costs, and to make it last, you can dilute it by adding some filtered water to your drink. Keep in mind too that you will with time likely be eating less, so you will save money in the long run.

You can try different combinations of organic fruits, and vegetables to make delicious, very healthy juices and smoothies. As a result of consuming these extra healthy drinks you may also find that you have more energy, have fewer aches and pains, are sleeping better, and are losing weight.

Teas Teas can be taken cold or hot. In most cases teas do not contain unhealthy additives, colorings, and preservatives. Again, check with your source, and read any labels to be sure.

It is also important to be sure that the water you are using to make your tea is not tap water.  There are many flavorful herbs out there that make great teas that also can give your health a boost.

Use filtered water to make your teas. Teas are also a great solution if you have a hard time with the taste or lack of taste of water.  Teas also provide many significant health benefits, and are normally quite affordable

Natural Sodas If you like the taste and feel of soda, and the carbonation that sodas provide, you may want to look into natural sodas.

These are soft drinks that use only natural ingredients, and have no unhealthy additives, chemicals, flavors, colorings, or preservatives. Of course, read the label, and any other provided information to be sure it is indeed healthy.

Take Charge of Your Health

What is in pop
Becoming healthy and reaping the benefits is simply a matter of you taking charge of your health.

Drinking most sodas is not a lot different from smoking cigarettes as far as your health is concerned. We now know that most ingredients in conventional soda pop is unhealthy, and potentially extremely unhealthy.

Some of the unhealthy ingredients are: refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, phosphoric acid, caffeine, aspartame, citric acid, sodium benzoate, colorings, dyes, preservatives, and natural flavors.

These ingredients in soda pop can cause or lead to serious health issues such as: heart disease, diabetes, asthma, osteoporosis, sleep disorders, Alzheimers Disease, kidney disease, migraine headache, cancer, and others.

Some healthy alternatives to drinking soft drinks are: filtered water, bottled water, seltzer water, juices, smoothies, herbal teas, and natural sodas among others.

By making some simple changes to your diet such as eliminating soda pop, and replacing it with healthy alternatives, you can drastically affect the way you feel, help fend off health issues, have more energy, enjoy better sleep, and even lose some weight.

What is in B’s

What is in B's
What is in B’s are helpful to you in many areas of health. Click on the picture.

What is in B’s you ask? By B’s I mean what is in B vitamins. B vitamins, and B complex vitamins are the most consumed, and largest selling vitamins on the planet.

There are many different types of B vitamins, and there are many different ways that B vitamins are processed from different sources in order to become your vitamins on the shelf for sale.

B vitamins are in many different foods, including vegetables, and fruits. B vitamin deficiencies can cause some serious health issues. Providing the body with B vitamins in the right form can do a lot to fend off, and relieve various health problems.

I will tell you about the various B vitamins. I will explain what foods contain B vitamins. I will also describe what maladies, and other health concerns that B vitamins in the right form, can help prevent, and/or improve, or even eradicate.

I will also enlighten you on some of the forms of B vitamins, which ones you should avoid, and which ones you should take advantage of.

List of B Vitamins

There are many different B vitamins. Each one has it’s own positive aspects, and when these important vitamins are combined they become a powerhouse of nutrition, and health benefits. Of course, it is very important that you get your B’s in the right form, which I will go over later.

B vitamins are water soluble vitamins. They are organic compounds that our body’s need for normal metabolism, and healthy functioning.  They are cofactors that are necessary for fat metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, RNA, and DNA synthesis.

Generally speaking, B vitamins are not needed in large amounts.  Most of these B vitamins have to be consumed on a regular basis, as they can’t be stored by the body.

Alcohol, overcooking, and extensive processing can ruin bio availability, or the function of the body to absorb many B vitamins.

The body cannot synthesize B vitamins(make their own), and we have a hard time storing them within the body, so we need to obtain them from outside sources such as food, and supplementation.

A lack of B vitamins can cause serious health issues. For instance, homocysteine from too few B vitamins,  which is a contributing factor in heart disease.

What is in B's
Vitamin B1 Thiamine deficiencies are often seen in alcoholics, and extremely obese people.

Vitamin B1 Thiamine  Has a vital part in energy metabolism as it turns glucose into useable energy.

Relatively easy to obtain from vegetables, as long as your source is not processed, or refined as this could destroy the vitamin.

Deficiencies are primarily seen in alcoholics or those whose diet is very unhealthy. Extremely obese people will sometimes be deficient in B1.

Deficiencies in B1 Thiamine can lead to diseases such as: Dry BeriBeri, a neurological disease which manifests in weakening and numbing of extremities and chronic infections.

Wet BeriBeri which is also a neurological disease that has symptoms of fever, and edema.  Korsakoff Syndrome which is a chronic memory disorder.

Vitamin B2 Riboflavin Important for fat metabolism, and energy production.  Deficiencies of B2 are fairly rare. Symptoms include swelling or inflammation around the area of the mouth, rashes on the body, as well as neurological issues.

Some harsh therapies for AIDS and cancer have resulted in deficiencies of B2. Cultures whose diet is totally lacking in plant foods also may see issues resulting from a B2 deficiency.

Vitamin B3 Niacin(nicotinic acid) Important for energy metabolism, especially in the forms of NAD, and NADP. B3 may increase longevity, and reduce the severity of diabetes.  B3 deficiencies are very uncommon, and are most commonly found in alcoholics.

This deficiency can cause Pellagra. Pellagra is manifested by raised, inflamed skin, sores in the mouth, diarrhea, and in severe cases, dementia. In extreme, usually sustained overdoses of B3 liver failure can occur.

Vitamin B5 Pantothenic Acid  Plays an important role in fat metabolism, and energy metabolism. Deficiencies in B5 can cause a break down of the immune system, and can also halt the body’s ability to make hormones, and prevent the body from using carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

These deficiencies in B5 are very rare because B5 is ubiquitous. It is easily found in the majority of foods.

Vitamin B6 Pyrodoxine Key in enzyme reactions and is found in the body in many different forms. It is also important in the body’s metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.  Deficiencies of B6 can cause peripheral neuropathy, convulsions, and sideroblastic anemia, usually brought on by alcoholism.

These deficiencies are rare, and usually occur in the elderly that lack nutrition, and in alcoholics. Toxicity is rare, and usually only seen with extreme overdoses of supplements, and can cause nerve damage.

Vitamin B7 Biotin Provides an important contribution to skin health, blood sugar balance, and energy metabolism.  Deficiencies of B7 are quite uncommon, and may result in conjunctivitis, hair thinning or hair loss, brittle fingernails, and/or dermatitis.  Raw eggs, and egg whites may block absorption of B7.

Vitamin B9 Folate  Has a key role in the overall health of the cardiovascular system, brain and nervous system, supports red blood cell production, and is thought it could contribute to preventing cancer. B9 deficiencies are somewhat rare.

States of malabsorption such as Celiac’s Disease, and Crohn’s Disease, unhealthy diets, and some prescription drug usage may contribute to deficiencies of B9.

Results of deficiencies are megaloblastic anemia, glossitis, diarrhea, fatigue, and complications in pregnant women such as causing birth defects like spina bifida in the unborn child,

B12 Cobalamine Plays an important part in DNA production, cardiovascular health, energy metabolism, brain health, and nerve health. B12 unlike many other B vitamins, can be stored in the body for several years. We need B12 in smaller amounts than other B vitamins.

However, B12 is not as easily obtained from a plant based diet like it’s B vitamin kindred. B12 has the metal cobalt incorporated into it’s structure, thus the name cobalamine. Only microorganisms such as fungi, and bacteria can synthesize vitamin B12.

B12 deficiencies can be caused by impaired absorption due to Crohn’s Disease, and Pernicious Anemia. It can also be caused by a tapeworm, bowel surgery, and Blind Loop Syndrome. Deficiencies of B12 can cause a lack of energy,  depression, psychosis, nerve damage, and optic atrophy.

Food Sources for B Vitamins

B Vitamin Supplements

What is in B's
You want an organic, live source B complex like Max Stress B.

Due to over farming causing nutrient depleted soils, pesticides, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, and other questionable planting and harvesting methods, much of the food we are subjected to today is woefully deficient in vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.

If that weren’t concerning enough, we are also ingesting many preservatives, colorings, artificial ingredients. and additives in our food.

The bottom line is that we are not receiving the nutrition we need from our food, and we are also setting ourselves up for health issues as a side effect of eating this refined, processed, chemical laden so-called food.

In addition, a recent study has found that 97 1/2% of all supplements on the market today are either ineffective, or toxic, or both. In the case of B vitamins, or B complex vitamins, most are derived from a dead source coal tar derivative.

In order for a supplement to be effective, and nutritionally optimized, it must come from a live source. Great care must be taken in the planting, growth, harvesting, processing, bottling, and storage in order to ensure that no chemicals or toxic tagalongs are present, and that the product itself is fully efficacious, intact, and uncompromised.

Ideally you want a live source supplement that is organically grown in earth that has never known a chemical, harvested at it’s peak of potency and freshness, lightly, and carefully processed, and bottled and stored with extreme care.

Avoid the B complex vitamins in the tablet form. These use synthetic, not natural, dead source vitamins, and are processed to the extent that the body cannot absorb or use them even if they had usable nutrients.

In fact, it has been shown that the body will many times excrete these tablets in the same form as when they were first ingested. Save your money.

You also want to avoid isolated supplements of B vitamins, such as B1 by itself. These are also synthetic so-called vitamins, and will do you little good, if any. A good live source B complex vitamin supplement such as the one below is your best bet.

What I recommend for you are premier, live source nutrients that are easily digested, highly bio available, and are combined, and targeted to provide you the most potent, beneficial effect time after time.

All of these supplements are 100% organic with no preservatives, additives, flavors, colorings, or toxic tagalongs, and nothing is artificial. No animal glandulars, or added stearates are ever used.

These are without a doubt the best supplements available anywhere, online or offline at any price. Try for yourself and see.

What is in Essential Oil

What is in essential oil
Essential oils can provide a viable alternative to many drugs, chemicals, and surgery.

What is in essential oil is can be of enormous benefit to your health and well being. There is an entire alternative health modality, practice, and business around essential oils called Aromatherapy.

There are schools, and even degree programs that reward the educational expertise of the extensive subject of essential oils, and Aromatherapy.

In keeping with the powerful ‘green’ movement, essential oils provide a very viable alternative to the drugs, surgeries, and chemicals that the main stream medical establishment utilizes to treat chronic illness.

The United States ranks anywhere from 17th to 24th in the world in success of treating chronic illness. The US is best in the world when it comes to trauma care, and acute care, but we are woefully deficient when it comes to chronic care.

So, if you are hurt in a car accident, or if you have appendicitis, you should feel lucky to be in the US.

However, if you suffer from cancer, or irritable bowel syndrome, for example, you may want to look for alternatives other than accept the often ineffective cut, slash, and burn techniques that the AMA, and the FDA prescribe.

I will explain what essential oils are, and the different ways to use them. I will also describe some of the more popular essential oils, and the awesome benefits that they can provide.

What are Essential Oils?

What is in essential oil
Essential oils have been used by various civilizations for thousands of years.

Essential oils are volatile, aromatic compounds found in plants that naturally occur. They are concentrated hydrophobic liquids.

Plant essential oils can be located in the flowers, roots, seeds, leaves, stems, and bark within the plant. Some plants do not  produce or contain essential oils. There are natural, and synthetic or man made essential oils.

Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, etherolea, ethereal oils, or as plant oils from which they are derived.

Essential oils have made people’s lives better for countless years, providing a vast array of life enhancements including physical, intellectual, emotional, cosmetic, religious, spiritual, and dietary. They have been utilized in various culture’s medicine for at least 3000 years.

TCM, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic(Indian)Medicine, Egyptian Medicine, all use essential oils extensively.   The Bible references essential oils 300 times.

Unfortunately, some essential oils are not beneficial or have detrimental aspects. Some can cause problems, and may even cause serious harm.

When exposed to sunlight for extended periods a few essential oils called photosensitizing oils can cause the skin to burn.

These oils include cumin, grapefruit, lime, bergamot, and lemon essential oils. It is also a good idea to not expose young children under the age of 1 year to essential oils.

Care should also be taken that essential oils are not ingested by children due to potential toxicity.

How are Essential Oils Used?

Stop and smell the roses
Simply smelling essential oils which are in plants and flowers,  is a good way to receive the pleasant aromas, and even some health benefits.

Essential oils are most commonly utilized by the distillation process when generated from the plant itself. Essential oils are made up of tiny molecules that can be inhaled through the nasal passages or absorbed by the body through the skin.

These oils are delivered for use by different methods. These methods include, steaming, topical application, diffusing, steaming, ingesting, using carrier oils. and inhaling/smelling the oils.

Topical  Topical application is the process of directly, and basically applying the oils to the skin. This provides for the essential oil to be absorbed through the skin, and then directly into the blood stream. Massages using essential oils can be very soothing, and effective.

These oils can be absorbed easily through the skin due to the fact that they are fat soluble. However, due to the concentrated power and strength of essential oils, to be safe they should be diluted prior to being topically applied.

Dilution of essential oils is accomplished with the use of carrier oils, not water. Generally speaking these carrier oils are used in a high ratio compared to the essential oil. Check the usage information for the proper ratios of carrier oils to essential oils.

Some of the more popular carrier oils are: coconut, almond, avocado, grape seed, and sunflower.

.Diffusing  Diffusing essential oils is accomplished with the use of a diffuser that emits the oil’s particles into the air and then breathed in. This is also known as aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy is defined as the art of using essential oils to balance and harmonize the mind and body. This is done by stimulating certain components of the brain which profoundly affect the mind, and the body.

A standard ultrasonic diffuser machine uses very quiet, ultrasonic waves to diffuse water with your favorite essential oils to quickly fill your area with their stimulating effects.

Heat is not used with this process to diffuse the oils. By heating the oil, damage or compromise can occur to it’s beneficial properties.  Most essential oils also have pleasing aromas which adds to the experience as you smell and breathe them in.

Some of the more popular essential oils used for diffusing are lemon, peppermint, lavender, cinnamon, frankincense, and eucalyptus. 30 minutes is normally adequate diffusing time for you to reap benefits, and will help you conserve the essential oil.

Steaming

Steaming makes it easy for you to realize the benefit

What is in essential oil
Steaming is an easy way to deliver the benefits of essential oils.

s of essential oils. Begin by heating filtered water on the stove until it starts to steam.

Although not suggested, you can also fill a large cup or mug with filtered water and heat it in the microwave for 2 or 3 minutes.

Be very careful not to microwave the water for longer than this. Microwave heated water can explode and cause burns if it is heated for too long a period of time. It is much safer to heat the water on the stove.

Pour the water into a large cup or bowl, and pour a few drops of your choice of essential oil into the steaming water. This is very strong.

Wear glasses or close your eyes to protect your eyes. Move your face over the cup or bowl, and inhale through your mouth and nose.

You should instantly feel the results through your mouth and lungs, and through your nasal passages as well. This is an effective, fast way to feel the effects from the essential oils.

Inhaling/Smelling  The easiest, and most basic way to feel the effects of essential oils is to simply open the bottle, and sniff the contents.

It is also practical to open a bottle of you favorite type and put it in a bathroom, or anywhere else you would like to enjoy the scent of an essential oil without having to deal with a diffuser, or of needing to steam the oils.

Diffusing is more effective, but even just smelling the oil can give you that quick pick me up to make you feel better and lift your spirits.

Another popular method of using essential oils is to add a few drops to your bath.

Ingesting  (This method should only be attempted by or with guidance of a Certified Aromatherapist.) Caution should be used when ingesting essential oils.

Ingesting essential oils is an effective delivery method for some oils. It is also not a good idea for other essential oils. The majority of essential oils should only be ingested when mixed with a carrier oil.

Certain oils can also be ingested by putting a few drops in a cup or glass of water and drank. Essential oils should never be given orally to children. A child should never be allowed to ingest essential oils.

Frankincense, and lemon, because they are gentle, can usually be ingested under the tongue. Other oils are quite caustic, and may cause problems if ingested, or not ingested properly.

Therapeutic grade essential oil that is organic, pure and free of toxins and additives, and is also undiluted and unfiltered is ideal for this method.

Dryer Sheets:  Add a few drops of oil to a terry cloth, and place in dryer with laundry.

Household Cleaner:  Mix oil with distilled water into a spray bottle.

What is in Dark Chocolate

What is in dark chocolate
Dark chocolate has grown in popularity, and consumption due to it’s healthy components.

Chocolate and particularly dark chocolate have seen a recent rise in popularity, as well as consumption numbers. It seems that what is in dark chocolate is not only delicious, but also very healthy, and has fueled this growth.

Many new purveyors of chocolate have appeared on the scene, and many existing chocolatiers have expanded their operations to take advantage of this growing market.

But what is in dark chocolate that makes it so healthy and delicious? What are the healthiest chocolates? Are there certain types of chocolate that I should steer clear of?  I will explain the origins of chocolate, and dark chocolate.

I will describe what is in dark chocolate that makes it so healthy. I will tell you about all the health benefits of dark chocolate. I will also recommend the best place to find dark chocolate and why.

Origins of Dark Chocolate

What is in dark chocolate
The origins of dark chocolate are cacao pods from the cacao tree in tropical climates.

The cacao tree, and the cacao pods are where chocolate comes from.  These cacao trees are found in tropical climates. There are different types and varieties of cacao that produce different types of chocolate.

In the case of dark chocolate, in order to be considered dark chocolate, the product must contain at least 18% and up to 99% chocolate liquor.

Dark chocolate is produced from the part of the cacao bean that is non fat. There must also be no milk solids added.
Industry and government standards of what chocolate products may be deemed dark chocolate may vary depending on the specific market and country.

The United States, and Europe for instance, require a minimum of 35% chocolate liquor, while Canada has only a minimum 18% chocolate liquor requirement for it to qualify as dark chocolate.

The higher the chocolate liquor content, the more bitter the product will be. Dark chocolate tends to have a cocoa solids content of between 30% and 80%.

Although not necessarily mandated, the suggested least amount of cocoa beans to be included in healthy dark chocolate, for it to be considered healthy dark chocolate is 70%.  The fermentation, and alkalinization process of the cacao will determine the amount of flavanols that are left in the end product.

In order to ensure that you are getting the optimum healthy benefits from the dark chocolate your best bet is to purchase organic, unprocessed cacao.

You can locate unprocessed cacao in various forms such as the bean or the seed, powder, nibs, or cacao butter which is from the fat of the bean.

What is in Dark Chocolate that Makes it so Healthy

What is in dark chocolate
Dark chocolate is high in anti-oxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

Dark chocolate has a reputation as the healthiest chocolate, and rightly so. The single biggest healthy attribute that dark chocolate possesses is a high level of anti-oxidants known as flavonoids. Within these flavonoids are polyphenols, and flavanols.

These flavonoid anti-oxidants have the ability to scavenge free radicals, and in so doing can help prevent, and improve many health issues, prevent oxidative stress, and even slow the aging process.

Oxidative stress is defined as the degree of damage that large amounts of free radicals can impose on tissues and cells within the body.

Dark chocolate is also high in vitamins, and minerals such as zinc, magnesium, sulphur, and iron.

Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate

The cocoa in dark chocolate with it’s high anti-oxidant content, and mineral rich constituents, has shown many significant health benefits.

Among the health benefits are:

What is in dark chocolate
Dark chocolate has many health benefits including cardiovascular, and brain health.

Cardiovascular benefits. Dark chocolate that is high in cocoa, and thus high in flavanols can help reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and reduce cardiovascular disease risk.

Eating dark chocolate that is at least 70% cocoa can significantly reduce your risk of heart attack, and stroke. The rich anti-oxidant content of dark chocolate can help prevent the formation of arterial plaque which can lead to heart attack, and stroke.

Weight loss benefits.  This is great news for many chocolate lovers, including myself.  Dark chocolate has shown to block fat absorption and our body’s ability to synthesize fats. The rich flavors, and high fat levels of dark chocolate create a satiety, or feeling of fullness which helps us to eat less.

The source of your dark chocolate as well as the amount of dark chocolate you consume will be determining factors here as to your weight loss success.

Some chocolate can be high in added sugar, is high in saturated fat, and calories. Eating too much of the wrong dark chocolate will have the opposite effect of weight loss.

Dental health benefits  Dark chocolate can inhibit the formation of plague, as well as deter cavities, and tooth decay.

Skin health benefits  Dark chocolate can be a player in skin health maintenance such as with skin density, and skin hydration, stimulate protection against UV light, and improve skin blood flow.

Anti-inflammatory benefits  Dark chocolate has anti-inflammatory compounds and other properties that may help lower the incidence of inflammation in the body.

Diabetes benefits
  Studies show that eating dark chocolate positively regulates insulin effectiveness in pre and post Type ll diabetics. 

Cancer benefits 
Flavanol rich dark chocolate has also been associated with a reduced risk of cancer.

Mental/Brain health benefits  Another amazing benefit of consuming dark chocolate is an improvement in brain function. In addition, dark chocolate stimulates endorphins, the brain’s feel good chemical, which can lift mood, and may help improve depression.

Dark chocolate also contains the neurotransmitter PEA compounds (love chemicals). In addition, researchers discovered the bliss chemical “anandamide” in chocolate.

Anandamide has been associated with improving motivation and increasing pleasure. Chocolate is the only food where this chemical is found.

Other health issues that dark chocolate can improve are: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, increased energy, increased libido, healthy nails, and healthy hair.

 

What is in dark chocolate.
Raw, organic dark chocolate is the healthiest form.

Raw, Healthy Dark Chocolate –  With None of the Negatives!

So we now know that dark chocolate is the best type of chocolate. We also know that it is important that we eat potent, raw, organic, unprocessed, healthy dark chocolate.

It is also important that we stay away from products that have the negatives that can turn our enjoyable, positive experience into one that can be detrimental, and unpleasant.

Most dark chocolate that is available today is processed, heated, refined sugar laden, and chemical laden. This type of chocolate is not good for you, and with continued consumption can create many unpleasant health issues.

The normal processing/roasting of chocolate negates a large amount of its health promoting properties that are of tremendous value. Heating destroys much of the mood elevating, antidepressant and antioxidant qualities of chocolate.

Raw, unadulterated cacao is among the most nutrient rich and complex foods on earth. All chocolate starts out as raw cacao nuts or beans – the cacao fruit’s seeds that grow on a tropical tree.

So, where do I go? Who do I trust to provide me with delicious dark chocolate products that have all the healthy benefits, and none of the negatives?

I’m glad you asked. There is such a place, and their entire existence/business is based on just that premise. All the healthy, none of the unhealthy.

There is a place where you can find, raw, organic, unroasted, stone ground, vegan chocolate using ethically traded

What is in CBD Oil

What is in CBD oil
CBD oil comes from the marijuana or hemp plant.

Have you ever wondered what is in CBD oil? CBD oil has taken the world by storm the last several years. The medical marijuana fight has gone on for a long time in the good ole US of A.

My personal opinion as to why medical marijuana approval has stalled for so many years is because the American FDA, Food and Drug Administration, and the AMA, American Medical Association have known about the highly effective healing ability marijuana, and it’s derivatives possess, for many years.

With their powerful lobbies in Washington, they suppressed this approval so that their massive profits would not take a serious cut.

CBD oil which is a derivative of marijuana, or hemp, or cannabis, has become very popular due to it’s amazing healing properties, and because it doesn’t contain the psychoactive ingredients that complete marijuana or hemp does, it is legal to sell, and distribute to the masses in most places.

So, what is in cbd oil? Are there ingredients I should be wary of? Will I get high if I ingest CBD oil? Are there other components like chemicals, preservatives, colorings, etc. that are in these bottles of the oil?

If so, Is organic CBD oil available? Is organic cbd oil as effective as regular cbd oil? What are the health/medical benefits of taking CBD oil?  What is the best source for CBD oil?

I will answer these questions, and provide additional information about the truly magnificent CBD oil.

What is in CBD Oil?

What is in CBD oil
What is in CBD oil can help you in a number of different ways.

CBD stands for cannabadiol, which is the most abundant non psychoactive cannabinoid component of marijuana. Non psycho active means that ingesting CBD oil will not cause a high.

The psychoative component of marijuana is the THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. As a result of not containing THC, CBD oil is legal in most states in the USA.

CBD oil works on many different receptors within the body called endocannabinoids, and has many therapeutic benefits. There are two of these endocannabanoids, CB-1, and CB-2, and they are located throughout the brain, and the body, and are naturally occurring.

CB-1 is most commonly found in the brain, and has a say in controlling emotions, and mood. It can effect pain, movement, and even appetite.

CB-2 is found within the body, and can be a player in the immune system, as well as with inflammation, and pain.

CBD oil stimulates the body’s existing endocannabanoids to be utilized where they are needed. It helps with anxiety, pain management, seizures, and even cancer.

CBD oil is now being used in many products from face creams to toothpastes to pet products. The CBD Oil industry is approaching the 2 Billion Dollar mark, and is projected to increase to 7 times that number in the next few years.

Many CBD oil products have gone through testing for toxic substances such as chemicals, heavy metals, and others, and of those tested none have contained any significant amounts of these toxins. This is not to say however, that the CBD containing product you may be using does not contain any of these substances.

Also, pay attention to the amount of CBD oil in a given product. Some of these products put very little CBD oil in their products, but yet can still claim on the label that it is a CBD oil product.

Because CBD oil is not regulated, there is a certain amount of trust that must be undertaken when buying CBD oil, and the products that contain it.

What is in Organic CBD Oil?

What is in CBD oil
Organic CBD oil is safer, and usually more effective than regular CBD oil.

So, is organic CBD oil better than regular CBD oil? With organic CBD oil, you have a much better chance of having a cleaner, more pure product, obviously. But, does this ensure that the effectiveness of the CBD oil is better? In most cases the answer is yes.

With organic, you will find that the producer’s take more care in the planting, growing, harvesting, packaging, and storage of the CBD oil.

However, in the United States currently the USDA does not certify organic US grown hemp or hemp products. They do certify organic hemp products that are imported from Canada and other foreign countries.

Does this mean that imported organic hemp products are better than US products? No, this is not the case more times than not.

Despite the fact that the foreign imported CBD oil is certified organic from a foreign entity, it is still much more difficult to control the growing, processing, storage, and quality of the product.

Health Benefits of CBD Oil

CBD oil can help with stress, anxiety, depression, and much more.

What I really wanted to find out was, how can CBD oil benefit me? I have heard many glowing testimonials touting the wonderful medical benefits, but apparently there are many benefits to this amazing product not just a few.

Encourages bone health and healing – Both bone mass, and healing from injury are promoted with CBD oil.

Can stop chronic inflammation – CBD oil can halt the inflammation that can lead to serious diseases like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, cancer, and auto-immune disease.

More health benefits are discovered all the time with CBD oil. There are likely many other health benefits with taking CBD oil  that this list does not contain.


There are some potential mild side effects with CBD oil. These are mostly attributable to carrier oils that might be used, or impurities in the product.

There is also the possiblity that negative interactions could develop while taking prescription medicine along with taking CBD oil. Be sure to check with your physician first if taking prescription medicine before taking CBD oil.

What is in Organic Wine

What is in organic wine
It is important for wine drinkers to know what is in organic wine.

What is in organic wine is a question all wine drinkers should ask. Another important question wine drinkers should consider asking is, what is not in organic wine? Or, what is in non organic or regular wine?  This is strictly a case of less is more.

I will look at what organic wine is, and how it is defined. I will reveal the ingredients in organic wine. I will also explain what is in regular wine or non organic wine.

This may surprise you. I will also let you know my pick for what I believe to be the world’s best organic wine, why I think so, and where to find it.

What is Organic Wine?

Wine, wine cultivation, and wine drinking has been around almost since the beginnings of man. It is thought that Jesus Christ himself was a drinker of wine.

In today’s world of processing, refining, and bio engineering our food and drink, many people are looking for a more natural solution to what they put in their body.

A solution where you don’t have to risk creating health problems, and side effects simply from ingesting what we eat and drink.

There is a ever growing movement to healthy, organic products, and wine is no exception. Most large grocery chains now have sections devoted to organic products. There are even some grocery chains that specialize in organic.

What is in organic wine
Organic wines don’t have pesticides or other harmful ingredients.

But what exactly is organic wine? What makes it organic?  Organic wines are defined as wines that are grown without the use of any chemicals or other harmful substances.  These harmful substances include herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides.

Organic grapes, and no added sulfites must be used in order to achieve the USDA, United States Department of Agriculture organic designation, and to show the USDA Organic seal.

Wines do have sulfites that occur naturally in the grapes. However, in order to be considered organic, the sulfite content must be 20 parts per million or less.

Sulfite is a natural preservative, can prevent contamination from bacteria, and it’s use does extend the life of the wine. Sulfites can also prevent the oxidation of wine which causes browning and can ruin a good wine.

However, sulfites also have negative attributes such as causing headaches, allergic reactions, can intensify hangovers, and even change flavors of the wine.

Organic wines bring out the true flavors of wine, and most wine experts agree that organic wines simply taste better.

Very specific rules dictate the process of wine making, as well as the conditions of storage in order to be labeled certified organic.

Easy to order organic wine

What is not in Organic Wine

What is in organic wine
Most wines you find at the store are not organic wines.

To fully appreciate what is in organic wine, I feel that it is important to know what is not in organic wine. Put another way, what is in regular wine that you find at your grocery store, liquor store, or online store.  And, let me tell you there is a lot.

In an attempt to produce wine in larger quantities, faster, cheaper, free of pests, with more consistency, and to last longer,  the wine industry has compromised it’s product to the point to where it is a concoction of chemicals that well may do more harm than good to it’s unaware drinkers.

Sadly, within the last 50 years, the mass of pesticides sprayed on grape vines has increased by 26 times. One of the highest totals of man made pesticides of any farm crop have been found on the grape.

Additives are injected to non organic wines to affect coloring, sweeten, retard or change flavor, control or add color, and much more.

The FDA,  Food and Drug Administration has given it’s stamp of approval for seventy six (76) different additives for use in making wine.

38 of these additives have achieved the distinction as being GRAS, or generally regarded as safe. So this means that there are 38 other ingredients that didn’t make the list, and thus are not generally considered as safe, yet the FDA approved them anyway.

Yikes! These people are looking out for our health and safety?

Some of these additives include:

  1. Oak essence (real oak barrels cost more)
  2. Commercial yeast
  3. Acetaldehyde
  4. Ascorbic acid
  5. Defoaming agents (polyoxyethylene 40 monostearate, silicon dioxide, dimethylpoly-siloxane, sorbitan monostearate, glyceryl mono-oleate and glyceryl dioleate)
  6. Gelatin
  7. Milk products (pasteurized whole, skim, or half-and-half, may contain hormones, and anti-biotics)
  8. Oak chips or particles
  9. Albumen (egg white)
  10. Grape juice concentrates
  11. Sugars(Refined sugar is one of the most health harmful substances you can ingest)
  12. Sulfites (there are those dreaded sulfites again)
  13. Soy flour
  14. Tartaric acid
  15. Ammonium phosphate
  16. Colorings including Ultra Red and Mega Purple
  17. Granular cork
  18. Pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, and chemical fertilizers

and many more!

World’s Best Organic Wines

What is in organic wine
The world’s best organic wines use very simple methods in their wine growing processes.

Although there are many outstanding, delicious, clean organic wines, there is one that stands out to me as the best.

There are techniques of growing, and bottling wine that if correctly executed can greatly improve the taste, experience, and prevent hangovers.  Did you catch that? I said prevent hangovers.

Delicious wine with no hangovers, or headaches. 

The requirements needed to bring about this optimum result are:

 Dry Farmed  

Dry farmed vineyards do not use irrigation as their water source. They use rain water.  This generates deeper roots that absorb more microorganisms from the soil.

Bio Dynamic Farming

Dry farms or bio dynamic farms utilize only rain water.

Healthy soil is the foundation of healthy wine.  Bio dynamic, organic vineyards create an atmosphere for, and create a soil that is healthy.

As a result vines that are healthy must have a lively soil teeming of beneficial microorganisms that is nutrient dense.

They use fertilizers that are natural such as compost teas, green manure, compost, and cover crops.

They utilize machine based weeding instead of using herbicides. They put grazing chickens and livestock to take the place of insecticides that are toxic.

No Sugar 

Refined sugar as you likely already know is a very unhealthy substance.

There are few other things you can ingest that are as harmful as refined sugar.

Many U.S. wines are loaded with sugar.  A good percentage of this sugar content can be from the addition of refined sugar. A shortened fermentation process allows for more sugars to be left behind.

Optimum organic/natural wines permit the entirety of the sugars that occur naturally to convert to alcohol when the wine has  fully fermented.

You create a sugar free wine when all the residual sugar is allowed to ferment, and none is added.

What is in organic wine
Far healthier to drink organic than regular wine. To your health!

No Additives  

Wine is not complicated. It is merely fermented grapes. Nothing else. Grapes that are grown from a vineyard that is natural, and unadulterated, already has everything it needs to produce wine.

There’s a lot of disruption, and adulteration with many toxic additives during the wine making stages for today’s typical conventional wines.

Organic wine doesn’t get better than this

Low Alcohol

Alcohol by itself is toxic. The less consumed of it, the better.

It is well known, alcohol is detrimental to our health. Alcohol, like refined sugar, and red meat all feed cancer. It doesn’t necessarily cause cancer, yet it can certainly accelerate it.

To the extent that we can limit our intake of alcohol, the healthier we will be. Lower alcohol wines permit you to enjoy all the healthy aspects and pleasant flavors of wine without being subjected to the negative aspects.

And we all know how bad those hangovers and headaches feel after an evening of excessive alcoholic drinks.

Lab Tested

The only requirement to be on a bottle of wine is the alcohol content. And even this doesn’t have to be exact.

The only way to find out everything that is in a wine is to have it laboratory tested.  In addition to the alcohol content in a wine, a lab can reveal all ingredients, including those pesky 76 additives that the FDA approved.

So, if you are ready to try a wine that is dry/bio-dynamically farmed, uses no additives, no sugar, has low alcohol, and each batch is lab tested, go here.

Hopefully, you now realize the importance of drinking organic wine, and avoiding regular wine.  To your health!
