Increase Your Libido Naturally

 

The stresses of life can wear down even the most resilient of optimist if they are not vigilant in maintaining a healthy lifestyle of eating the right foods. The wrong foods, lack of sleep, and daily stress can rob a person of the joy of living. This can be especially true for one’s sex life. From a diet standpoint, one of the greatest deterrents to a healthy sex life (suffering from a low libido) is not getting the necessary nutrients, minerals, and enzymes needed in order to maintain a healthy endocrine system.

Here are three foods that can significantly aid in preventing the onslaught of a low libido (sex drive).

vo-raw assorted nuts1) NUTS. I am not speaking about the kinds you get out of bowls in bars or out of a little plastic bag on an airplane. I am referring to minimally processed, unsalted nuts like walnuts, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, and pistachios. Nuts are a sort of super food if you eat them in the right quantities and with minimal processing.

They are a great source of antioxidants, they help lower bad cholesterol, provide protein, fiber, and a great source for healthy fats, i.e. monounsaturated fats. And for all you married folk reading this, they also increase your libido.

vo-saffron-spice2) SAFFRON. Saffron is a spice that is used in cooking and bringing out the flavors in food. While it is a little bit on the pricey side, it is the kind of luxury food that you want to eat a healthy dose of every opportunity you can get. It is an ingredient in natural sex-drive stimulants, so instead of buying “sex-drive stimulants” that are ridiculously expensive, just choose to cook with Saffron.

Saffron is great in a wide range of dishes like chicken seasoning if you eat chicken. It’s great in soups or stews, adding a unique and flavorful taste. I eat it often on my veggies whether I eat them raw or steam them. My favorite veggies to eat saffron on is asparagus, cauliflower and broccoli.

vo-raw-beets3) BEETS. I LOVE beets. I juice them, eat them in salads, as a side dish for full blown dinner meals, as snacks, and I even pickle and ferment them on occasion or make a relish out of them for topping other vegetable dishes that I make.

Beets create nitric oxide in the same manner as the supplement L-Arginine, both of which increase your endurance and your libido by improving blood flow to the pelvic region.

If you will discipline yourself to keep these three nutritional sources in your diet (nuts, saffron, and beets), you will be happily surprised at the pick-me-up they will bring to your lifestyle and love life. Be on the look out for the article I am working on that will tell you about the foods that will kill your sex drive. If you are married and want to keep your spouse happy, these are foods that you want to stop eating for sure! The scary part of this is that they are in almost every pantry or cupboard in America.

One Simple Way of How to Reduce the Risk of Cancer

 

HOT BEVERAGES WITH MEALS COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.

HOT BEVERAGES WITH MEALS COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Why is it that America, the world’s leader in cancer research, leads the world in cancer? Why is it that colon cancer is so prevalent in America? Ever wonder? Maybe not. I think that maybe if we did, we might be open to learning a few things from cultures that have long practiced certain traditions and eating habits that have resulted in these cultures having among the very lowest incidents of colon cancer in the world.

The Japanese and Chinese have for eons made it a practice to drink hot beverages or hot soups after their meals. It is just a simple tradition or do they know something that most Americans do not know. Research has found that you can dramatically reduce heart attacks and cancer by doing this.

When I learn about things like this, why do I always feel scornful towards the American Cancer industry – who leads the world in cancer research in terms of dollars spent – because they seldom, if ever recognize holistic, common sense cures to a disease that is bankrupting our healthcare system? Why are they so unwilling to endorse simple daily lifestyle habits as a practical way to reduce the risk of colon cancer or heart attack?

Well, we all know it is about money. The cancer business is a multi-billion dollar cash cow industry. Why would they want to reduce cancer in the United states? Like I said, even though the USA leads the world in cancer research in terms of dollars spent (private and tax payer money), America overwhelmingly leads the world in the number of people per capita for population who develop cancer in their lifetime.

[stepping down from soap box now…]

So about the warm  water/beverage after your meal. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water. These two cultures also have among the lowest percent of the population in the world who get cancer. They are in the same group of ‘lowest rates’ as India (where turmeric is used heavily in daily diets), and in most African countries where diets derived from foraging lifestyles are prevalent.

Here is why drinking warm liquids over cold liquids at meals is so important. In a nutshell, drinking cold beverages with meals will solidify fats and oils that are a part of your meals, making them difficult to digest properly. Cold beverages with meals also slow down the digestion of foods which ultimately causes it to be passed into intestines only partially digested. This is because cold drinks solidify the oils/fats, and turns it into a sort of ‘sludge’ and as it reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food – which ultimately lines the intestinal track with a film that prevent nutrient absorption while also putrefying in the lining of the intestines – especially the colon. VO-colon-diseases-illustration

There are multiple repercussions to this digestive event as a result of your intestines not being able to fully absorb the nutrients your body needs, but the biggest one initially is that when your body is unable to get all of the nutrients from the foods you eat, the cells tell the brain to send more nutrients, which in turn, your brain tells your stomach to start making more nutrients, ergo the hungry feeling (stomach growling syndrome).

Here are just a few resulting illnesses resulting from poor intestinal health:  Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, endometriosis, appendicitis, diverticulitis, and cancer. When your colon is healthy, i.e. free of sludge and putrefying foods that do not get digested (mainly fats and meats), you won’t need to eat as much. When you eat healthy, what you eat will get maximum nutritional benefits by being fully absorbed into your body for energy and cellular repair. You will also help prevent the storage of unwanted fat in your body.

This is not to say that simply drinking warm fluids with our meals will fully prevent stomach and intestinal disease and cancer, BUT this with a good diet – eating simple food groups and non-processed foods like those foods that are typical in eastern cultures, you  could very well dramatically reduce your risks of these kinds of diseases, especially heart disease and cancer.

MonaVie – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of it.

 

AN AWESOME SOURCE OF ANTI-OXIDANTS, BUT POLLUTED WITH SODIUM BENZOATE TO PREVENT MOLD.

AN AWESOME SOURCE OF ANTI-OXIDANTS, BUT POLLUTED WITH SODIUM BENZOATE TO PREVENT MOLD.

Yes, MonaVie! Excellent product for antioxidants. It’s loaded with them, and antioxidants are of major importance to our health and longevity! I have many friends that are top producers in the marketing company for the product, and they are doing very well in it. Being the health fanatic that I am (most of the time), I seemed an ideal fit for this product in their eyes.

When I was initially approached to market it to my growing network of health enthusiasts, I took a good look at it. I must have had a target on my back for MonaVie marketers, because in the space of about two years I ended up with several bottles of it – literally gallons of it – in the process of being prospected to sell it. So why after being given gallons of MonaVie by friends and associates as samples, didn’t I get involved if I saw the product as a great source of antioxidants? I loved the taste. I loved the benefits of it. I even liked the marketing structure for it. Here is what my research discovered.

My decision not to promote MonaVie came down to one simple truth about it. MonaVie uses the preservative Sodium Benzoate. Sodium Benzoate is a very very bad preservative found in a wide range of products that has been linked to all sorts of health issues. Sodium benzoate is a preservative in such food and drink products as fruit juice, soft drinks, coffee flavoring syrups, as well as a variety of condiments.

Sodium Benzoate

SODIUM BENZOATE – CARCINOGENIC MOLD INHIBITOR

Any product that is meant to have a shelf life of more than a few weeks has a mold inhibitor in it. Sodium Benzoate is a mold inhibitor, and the most widely used mold inhibitor, because it is the cheapest ‘preservative’ on the market to use for this. Although the FDA has previously classified sodium benzoate as a safe preservative, this classification is now being shown to be something far less than healthy for consumption. While benzoic acid is found naturally in low levels in many fruits, the sodium benzoate listed on a product’s label is synthesized in a lab.

Tests done by Peter Piper, a professor of molecular biology and biotechnology, showed the impact of sodium benzoate on living yeast cells. His research and testing found that benzoate was damaging an important area of DNA.  Research also has shown that sodium benzoate forms a chemical known as benzene when in the presence of vitamin C. This is not a good thing for living organisms – especially humans, since benzene not only causes damage to our DNA, but it is also a known carcinogen (causes cancer). In a nutshell, sodium benzoate chokes out your body’s nutrients at the DNA cellular level by depriving mitochondria of oxygen. In some instances, this sort of damaging affect can completely shut them down. Just as humans need oxygen to breathe, cells need oxygen to function properly and to fight off infection, including cancer.

In a nutshell, it is being validated as a chemical that plays a significant role in a variety of diseases due to its ability to damage DNA. Sodium benzoate is also being made out to be a culprit on its affect on children in that more and more evidence is pointing to it, along with artificial food colorings, to cause children with ADHD to be more hyperactive.

ALL SODAS HAVE SODIUM BENZOATE IN THEM TO PREVENT MOLD.

ALL SODAS HAVE SODIUM BENZOATE IN THEM TO PREVENT MOLD.

As you can imagine, this can be a particular problem for kids who consume soft drinks on a regular basis since most carbonated beverages have sodium benzoate as a preservative. Because of increasing awareness of this problem, Coca Cola has plans  to remove this unhealthy preservative from its soft drink products this year. If you want to do more research on sodium benzoate, there is plenty of documentation to be found online.

If you have concerns about the affect of sodium benzoate on your health or the health of your family, I encourage you to research it if you feel you want to know the health hazards inherent with the consumption of it in your diet.
