In this post I am discussing how I will tie the various articles on this site together. When I say together I mean how I used or considered the various supplements, exercise regimens, alternative medicine techniques etc. in my lifestyle regimen. To discuss this I will have to use a timeline of my life beginning in the late 1980’s when I was in my 30’s.
Counting carbs is not always easy, but understanding them is half the battle. While fiber may be tricky, it’s considered a good carb and should be thought of as such. White sugar and white bread are much higher on the Glycemic Index, putting us more at risk for diabetes. But those foods that are low help our digestive system feel more full when we are eating.
If you find yourself forgetful, or even sluggish, talk to your doctor and consider if Vitamin D would be right for you. Similar to fish oil, this supplement is going to protect your heart to keep it healthy and strong. This is a bonus if heart disease runs in your family. But, Vitamin D is also a good vitamin for hair. In men, it’s possible that Vitamin D could restore their hair for a longer period of time.

More than 200 million Americans consistently devour food items made from wheat. Therefore, more than 100 million of them experience some type of unfriendly well-being impact; going from minor rashes and high glucose to the ugly stomach swells that preventive cardiologist William Davis calls “wheat bellies.” According to Dr. Davis, that overabundance of fat has nothing to do with intemperance, sloth, or an excessive amount of margarine: It’s because of the entire range of grain wraps we have for lunch.
Personal preference has dictated nutritional choices throughout contemporary history. Ever since people gained access to enough food to move beyond subsistence nutrition, they have based their dietary decisions mainly on taste and general health trends. Yet a growing body of evidence shows there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition. Our responses to different nutrients are unique, and by recognizing and monitoring this we can potentially extend our healthy life expectancy.
Sweetness is amongst the five basic tastes of this world. It can be said undisputedly that it is a widely cherished taste too. Sweets are very important for any human being in this world. Happiness is associated with sweets. Everywhere sweets are the first thing to be shared when a festival or grand occasion arrives. Whether it is Christmas, Hanukkah, or Diwali, sweets are everywhere and connect everyone into one pure bond of sheer happiness.
So, how did we get things so wrong? Dr. Yusef believes that previous studies were looking at intermediate steps in the process of heart disease rather than examining the endgame.

As men age, one of their primary concerns is their prostate. An enlarged prostate, known medically as benign prostate hyperplasia, can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms, including incontinence, painful urination, and an increased risk of urinary tract infections. The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Clearinghouse has reported that over half of all men between the ages of sixty and seventy years of age suffer from this condition. Saw palmetto, a plant extract, is useful in improving these symptoms. Saw palmetto is available over the counter, with no side effects other than the occasional upset stomach. Small price to pay for relief.
