Acne: How To Fight Acne…Part 3

Posted by Saito on April 1, 2009

Dr.Mercola is featured in this in-depth video about simple and easy ways to clear acne.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Conclusion: My Thoughts

I agree with what he says, we should definitely be getting our Vitamin D through either supplement or through the sun its so good for you and I take Vitamin D.

The part I find most difficult is when he says “Stay away from grains”. You only need to stay away from grains till the acne is controlled, but until then dang, your going to be hungry. Grains are good fillers, if you can supply your self with vegetables every day and you are in a position to do so then give it a shot. If you have done this and see results wether good or bad post a comment! Let me know 😀

Wel guys that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update :D.

The Benefits of Fruits and Vegetables: Part 1

Posted by Saito on March 24, 2009

I’m dedicating this post to the benefits of fruits and vegetables, since there are so many different types of fruits and vegetables I will only be discussing about the most common fruits and vegetables.

Fruits and Veggies

Q & A

What do you mean by benefits exactly?

By benefits I mean as what they can actually do, how do they effect your body?

Lets start with a few common veggies:

Celery

Celery targets your bones, notice they appear to look like your bones inside and out already. It sends nutrients to your bones to keep them healthy and strong. When your body is running low on sodium it takes sodium from your bones, making them weak. So celery and other vegetables like bok choy and rhubarb revive your bones keeping them strong.

Carrot

If you look on the inside of a carrot (after you take a bite) you will notice the odd rings on the inside, almost transforming into the shape of an eye. As a matter of fact it greatly effects the human eye, it greatly enhances blood flow and funtions of the human eye.

Tomato

The tomato has four chambers on the inside, the tomato is red. That is exactly what our hearts look like inside and out! All research says that the tomato is pure heart and blood food.

– – – – – – –

Okay, we have seen the benefits of some vegetables, now lets take a look at the fruit section:

Grapes

Grapes hang in a cluster in the shape of the human heart, every grape appears to look like a blood cell. Research shows that grapes are food for the heart and our blood. (grapes are also a great source of Resveratrol)

Bananas

Bananas are a great source of potassium, it helps to regulate your blood pressure. The potassium in the bananas can also help your muscles contract properly while doing exercises and it reduces cramping. bananas can also help lower sugar cravings.

Oranges

Oranges are extremely beneficial, they help you fight asthma, it helps with proper brain development, it also brings Betacarotene into your body which protects your cells from damage and viruses.

– – – – – – – –

These are just a few fruits and vegetables, imagine the benefits of ALL fruits and vegetables! I think everyone should try to maintain a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables, the benefits are worth it :D.

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update :D.

Balanced Diet: How To Start A Balanced Diet…

Posted by Saito on March 3, 2009

Food Pyramid

I’m sure most of you have heard about the Food Pyramid, it shows you the best way to start a balanced diet and keep a balanced for the rest of your life.

Q & A

Okay then, what do I do first?

By starting a balanced diet you are taking a big step in life, you have to break some bad habits. Like eating unhealthy snacks when your hungry, or having multiple deserts (I’m sure you can think up some unusual eating habits on your own). Give your self time to make the transition, have your parents start buying you healthy natural foods. That is what you do to start…


Do you have a schedule I can use? What should I eat at what times?

Okay I’ll start:

Breakfast:

Start your breakfast with energizing food, full of protein and Vitamin C. I suggest eggs (protein) you can make them anyway you like, for bread I suggest Toast and last but not least for a drink try milk (calcium)/orange juice(Vitamin C) (you probably have more then one glass of orange juice/milk, try them both; have one glass of milk and one glass of orange juice)

Time between Breakfast and Lunch:

Sometimes most people have a snack before lunchtime, try munching on some cheerios (your daily grains) or have vegetable/fruit something healthy.

Lunchtime:

For lunch were all normally at school, so I suggest when you pack your lunch you should take food items that will last through the entire school day. I normally have a tuna sandwich, with a banana (protein again). For a drink I have water, cool and refreshing…try something balanced and nutritional like that (I’m sure you can think of something).

Time between lunch and dinner:

If you’ve just come home from school and want another snack, try crackers with peanut butter (or cheese, you know something edible like that =D). For a drink to go with it try having some more milk.

Dinner:

Normally as teens were not in charge of dinner (mom or dad takes care of that), why not ask them to make a balanced meal? I would suggest you ask them to make a pasta dish, or a rice dish; something with plenty of grains. You could also suggest a meat/poultry dish (chicken, beef or ham). On the side you would want a vegetable group, try broccoli or cauliflower. For desert try dark chocolate (just plain dark chocolate, its good a very good for you), or try a fruit dish.

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

That’s the schedule I recommend, of course its normally you can’t keep a perfect schedule this is just an example. Try making up your own balanced meal schedule, stick to the Food Pyramid rules and you’ll be fine :D.

Resveratrol: Wait What’s Resveratrol?

Posted by Saito on February 23, 2009

Grapes full of Resveratrol

Resveratrol is a special nutrient that is normally found in red grapes. Grapes use Resveratrol to heal a bruise or a burn from the sun anything that damages the grape, it uses it so it may return back to normal form and shape.

Q & A

Ok great well it helps the grapes…but what has this to do with me and my health?

Well not only is Resveratrol found in grapes but it’s also found in animals. When an animal is starving, near death, Resveratrol is released throughout the animals body; Resveratrol keeps the animal from catching deadly diseases till it finds the proper food source. It keeps the animal alive! This also pertains to us, if we take Resveratrol as a supplement it will protect us from diseases-protecting us from every disease as a matter of fact!

Ok that’s cool, but is that all it can do for me?

No, that was just the beginning; there is so much more it can do. Resveratrol tricks your body into making every possible move to preserve your body as you get older, it boosts your defenses (protecting you from disease) and keeps you in top physical condition. In order for Resveratrol to work at it’s best you need a good diet; eating balanced meals and such. As I said before, it preserves your body as you get older and it helps you live healthier, longer. It also helps your brain-it keeps your mind clear and focused.

Wow, where can I get this and how do I take Resveratrol?

I suggest you take it in veggie capsule form:

Click the following link and you can get Resveratrol in veggie capsule form. It’s recommended that you take two a day, one in the morning and one at night: Eresveratrol.com

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I’ve been taking Resveratrol for several months now and I’m enjoying it’s benefits, you know my mind is clear and focused :D. I enjoy it, my mind does not feel cluttered as it use to…how cool is that :D!! Now my mom is taking Resveratrol, and she is also enjoying its bountiful benefits!! She says it has helped her with her memory and her mind is clearer then it has been in a long while 😀

Well that’s all for now, stay tuned for the next update 😀

These are basic workout routines when starting out with weights. Depending on your size and girth with weights only choose the amount of weight you can handle. Start out with lighter weights then move up as your muscles get used to the strain. With every workout you do, even ones without weights do at least three sets. Each set you do try doing at least fifteen reps. If you can, use a back brace when you workout so you’re back is supported.

Well that’s all for the first part, stay tuned for the next update 😀

Acne: I’m Sick of Acne…

Posted by Saito on January 21, 2009

And I feel bad for those who suffer with it, I’ve had long years with acne and I have recently been using something my father found…its called the FIR:

FIR (Far Infrared Rays) Machine
FIR

This little dome has been really helpful!! I use it now everyday and my face is clearing up from the really bad Acne that use to cover my skin.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Q & A

But how exactly do you use it?

You turn it on, drink plenty of water before use (just a normal glass full of water), set the timer for (when you use it for the first time) fifteen minutes, then lie down flat on your back; you place either cotton balls or a washcloth on top of your (closed) eyes and place the dome directly above your face. It then releases Far Infrared Rays. The rays gently sink into your skin (approximately an inch and a half all the way through your skin), its very soothing so have no fear of any pain or any strange side effects.

After you use the FIR for fifteen minutes you need to drink another glass full of water. Try to FIR everyday and you will see better results from it, but while doing so the next day instead of fifteen minutes try thirty minutes instead(you will benefit from that amount much faster then the previous fifteen minutes); continue with thirty minutes from then on (and if you have the time you can even do it for a full hour every day from then on :D)

I touched the inside of the FIR when it was turned on, it was really hot; will this become a danger?

No you’re fine. When it heats up like that just avoid touching the inside with your hands or face; its not dangerous 😀

When will I start to see results?

Give it about two weeks, you should notice a big difference after that 🙂

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I love using the FIR! I was though a bit skeptic at first, but now that I see the results I have nothing bad to say against it :D. My mom and sister also use it for their own means and they feel the same way about it as I do!

Aerogarden: The Benefits Of Using an Aerogarden

Posted by Saito on January 19, 2009

Ok its time to introduce the Aerogarden, I’ll explain why.

If you go shopping for groceries at a normal everyday grocery store with your parents or by yourself, you will find some stores that have very poor quality vegetables. In some cases the quality is so bad you don’t even get the proper nutrients from eating the fresh vegetables that you believed you were getting…why?

Unless organically grown, much of our vegetables are grown in soil with very little minerals and nutrients.

My family and I have recently discovered that we are sad victims of poor quality produce even though we were getting good fresh produce. Because of this we are slowly shifting over to the Aerogarden:

Aerogarden

When you first look at the picture above, you can see the the successful crop of one Aerogarden. Now that is a pretty good looking crop! It’s full of delicious quality cherry tomatoes that were grown naturally-no strange chemicals or pesticides were used to corrupt those beauties. And that’s why I’m recommending that you switch over to the Aerogarden for healthy produce grown right out of your own home.

Q & A

But how exactly does it work?

The Aerogarden transmits Full Spectrum Grow lights from the Lamp Hood that overlooks the plants. It cuts down considerably the time spent on growing a garden. The other helpful part of the Aerogarden is actually at its base, where you plant the seeds:

Diagram of Aerogarden

In the image above you can see the little domes under the overhanging lamp; that’s where most of the
process begins. The seed you use (like lettuce) grows inside a chamber that has a tropical rain forest-like atmosphere (and check this out, its even better then soil :O). It speeds up the process of plant growth right from the start 😀


And does it only grow cherry tomatoes?

Of course not! With the Aerogarden you can grow multiple kinds of vegetable plants (I’m currently growing lettuce with my sister’s help). It can grow just about anything you want (except for veggies that sprout too high, like corn for example).

But I don’t have a lot of time on my hands, will this become a hassle?

No! No not at all :D. It takes care of itself. The light on the control panel lets you know when you need to change the water or add another nutrient tablet. Completely low maintenance, anyone can have a green thumb with the Aerogarden!

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I am really excited about this, I hear from my friends that the vegetables taste soo good. If you have any other questions just post a comment and I’ll be right there to help 😀
