Soy is Healthy: WRONG!

Many of us believe that Soy is healthy and great serving for people that like to stay away from the fat from regular milk for example or those that need more Protein such as vegetarians.

This video by Dr. Mercola exposes us to the truth about SOY. Soy is Dangerous.

One of the negative factors is the estrogenic property in SOY.. which is not good for boys for the obvious effect and bad for young girls for the fact that they are given high estrogen from a young age giving them a boost to hormonal maturing faster.

It is unfortunate that vegetarians rely on Soy for their protein, however the risks are higher than the benefits.

SOY plant is genetically modified, therefore is harming and unhealthy for us.

Soy milk is a common source of SOY, which is also a contributor to thyroid dysfunction.

WARNING: Soy infant formula is the biggest concern, this is high in toxic minerals and high concentrations of estrogen which is high risk to a child.

Watch the following video to learn the truth about SOY:

Intermittent Fasting is The New Healthy

What better way than to talk about fasting than during this lent period… It is questionable if fasting and staying without food for a long period of time is healthy or unhealthy for your body.

So it seems…

Studies show that when one fasts for a certain period of time during the day, it is a healthy process that is very beneficial for weight loss. So fasting and keeping your body fed for only about 8 hours a day is a great benefit.

Mercola states: “Intermittent calorie restriction appears to provide the same health benefits as constant calorie restriction, which may be helpful for those who cannot successfully reduce their everyday calorie intake”

This is indeed true, I know I am one to have difficulty reducing my calories intake, but what if you had no choice, like lent, or simply fasting for the hell of it? You would indeed be more healthy.

For more details on scientifically WHY… please see the website at http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2013/03/01/daily-intermittent-fasting.aspx?e_cid=20130301_DNL_art_1&utm_source=dnl&utm_medium=email&utm_content=art1&utm_campaign=20130301

Take A Second & Pay Attention!

When you go to the washroom, you have seen your stool and it has had many forms and colors. Right?

Sadly but true, this is a very important factor that determines how healthy or unhealthy you are. It is important that you pay attention to these things, as the color and form of your stool may be the first clue to some diseases and health issues.

This may seem disgusting for some of you, but pay attention to this chart and see where your stool stands:

stool-chart

Now after you have determined where you stand… Lets take a look at how healthy you are.
“Ideally, your stool should approximate Types 3, 4 and 5, “like a sausage or a snake, smooth and soft” to “soft blobs that pass easily.” Type 4 is the Holy Grail.”

Otherwise, you should start watching what you eat, or go see a doctor because you might be in danger.

This should not be taken lightly, this is very serious.

Please read the rest of this article of What You See in the Toilet Can Give You Valuable Insights into Your Health for more detailed information & Watch the video.

Assume Your Position!

So as weird as it may be, science shows that squatting is more healthy and preventative than sitting on a toilet. I remember those “toilets” where you have a whole in the ground and you had to go in there. I always thought it was the weirdest thing and never understood why there is no toilet! Little did I know, this was the RIGHT way to “poop”, for lack of words of putting it. Evidence is in fact out there to show us that the position we use to poop is in fact unhealthy nowadays. They call it the western toilet, though it is in fact everywhere now, every country now has a toilet to sit on. Dr. Mercola tells : ‘‘Sitting on the modern Thomas Crapper-style sit-down toilet is designed to place your knees at a 90-degree angle to your abdomen. However, the time-honored natural squat position places the knees much closer to your torso, and this position actually changes the spacial relationships of your intestinal organs and musculature, optimizing the forces involved in defecation.’’

In fact, our current form of toilet can be the blame for various health problems out there today such as Constipation, Hemorrhoids, Colon Cancer, Hiatal Hernia and GERD, Contamination of the Small Intestine, Gynecological Disorders including Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Uterine Fibroids, Prostate Disorders, Sexual Dysfunction, and many more. It is in fact also potentially problematic for pregnancy and childbirth.

I can go on and on about this issue however I will give you this link to follow and read the article written by Dr. Mercola

It is kind of unfortunate, I feel, when I read this! Do you think we can ever go back to the old days? Would our society allow it? And can we actually get back to the squatting position? In fact, do you actually have the strength to do it or have Your legs become so unable to perform such a squatting position for a period of time? I speak of experience when I do squats for a workout and it is quite difficult!
