Health And Beauty

Health and beauty. These two words dovetail together and go hand in hand with one another. Beauty is not something that can be bought, unlike most things in today`s society. You either have natural beauty or you do not, it is as simple as that. But you certainly need to be healthy too, to be naturally beautiful. Health and beauty is a wonderful phrase that conjures up lovely images.

When you are healthy and you look after your body your natural radiance and beauty can then shine through. A lot of women unfortunately in today`s society do not feel they have to look after their inner selves, as they think that the layering on of more make up or beauty products will cover up a multitude of sins. What they do not realise is that this can be seen through in one single glance.

Make up and many beauty products can enhance your looks and make you look even more attractive, but you have to have the base there initially before you start. It is really important to look after yourself properly in every sense. What does this mean?

Well, you should be getting enough exercise for one thing. Calorie counting is not the way to lose any flab, the best way to get yourself in shape is to simply eat good, healthy foods and get plenty of exercise each and every day. I do not suggest you need to be an athlete in any sense of the word, but even a brisk walk for an hour each day can make all the difference to your body mass index and figure.

Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables and cut out the rubbish, such as processed and refined food products. Try to eat as much food in its natural state as you can. Drink plenty of water and get plenty of sleep every night. All these things will help you to let your health and beauty shine through.

Weight Loss and Beauty

Raw diet promotes beauty. To begin with, one reaches his or her ideal weight more readily and maintains it with much less effort than on a cooked diet. Many people lose 15 pounds in a month or two with no feeling of deprivation whatsoever. Obese people lose much more than that while eating raw fats all they want, including raw “ice cream,” avocados, nuts and olives. Raw fats (from avocados, olives, nuts, seeds, coconut butter et al.) are actually needed by the body to maintain youthful skin, hair and glands. They are rich in the essential fatty acids linolenic acid and linoleic acid that are denatured by heat.

Raw food pioneer Dr. Ann Wigmore wrote, “The effectiveness of live foods and fresh juices, especially wheatgrass juice, has bankrupted many complex theories about why we become fat and how to reduce quickly … Among our guests at the [Hippocrates Health] Institute, the average weight loss per week is between four and fifteen pounds” (The Wheatgrass Book, p. 59).

Studies have shown that raw food is less fattening than the same food cooked. According to Dr. Edward Howell, raw fats are not fattening and seem to belong in “a special pigeonhole in nutritional speculations” (Enzyme Nutrition, p.109). While cooked fats accumulate in the body and become very detrimental to our health, raw fats contain lipase (deficient in many obese people), the enzyme involved in metabolizing fat properly.

The word “Eskimo” means “raw eater,” as the Eskimos traditionally ate nothing cooked but subsisted chiefly on raw meat and blubber. Dr. V. E. Levine examined 3,000 primitive Eskimos during three trips to the Arctic and found only one person who was overweight.

Cooked starches are also very fattening. Farmers have even learned that it is necessary to feed their animals cooked food to fatten them up for maximal profit. Hogs do not get fat on raw potatoes, but cooking the potatoes makes them gain weight.

In addition to reaching your body’s ideal weight, many other beauty factors blossom on a raw diet. Cellulite, which is thought to result from eating heated fats, gradually disappears with the consumption of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. On a raw diet, elimination of cellular waste and increased lymphatic drainage helps remove cellulite.

As the body’s old cells are replaced with new, healthy cells through proper nutrition that only a raw diet provides, your hair grows in thicker and at times wilder. It may even regain color after having been gray, as did Ann Wigmore’s. Your skin may become as soft and smooth as it was in your youth. Your nails will be strong, clear and shiny. Facial lines may fade or disappear; the face’s pasty, white complexion becomes ruddy or rosy. People may remark on how much younger you look. Your eyes will sparkle.

The Hippocrates Health Institute, one of the places where people have gone to learn about the raw food diet, was once described by Cosmopolitan magazine as the “well-kept secret” of beauty and rejuvenation of various famous Hollywood movie stars and celebrities. Now the news media are letting the secret out.

When Demi Moore appeared in a bikini in the Charlie’s Angels movie Full Throttle and looked every bit as great as the women younger than her, the word went out that the secret was her raw food diet. Other celebrities who have caught the wave include Alicia Silverstone and Woody Harrelson.

Model Carol Alt wrote in her book Eating in the Raw that the raw diet helps her stay beautiful, slim and young-looking. She attributes her current youthfulness and stamina to having eaten primarily raw food for eight years. She explains that in her thirties she had to starve herself and exercise a lot to stay trim. But as a raw fooder she is able to eat anything she wants, as long as it’s raw, and she maintains her weight effortlessly, without ever feeling excess hunger. In addition, she claims she has better abdominal definition without exercising than she did as a cooked fooder who exercised regularly. She also has fewer wrinkles.

Health and beauty are intertwined. Dr. Herbert Shelton wrote, “The woman who maintains her health and youthfulness will retain her attractiveness. If she permits her health to slip away from her, if she values indulgences and frivolities more than she does health and impairs her health in the pursuit of false pleasure, she will lose her BEAUTY; and no art of the cosmetician and dressmaker will be able to preserve it for her.”

Researcher Arnold De Vries writes, “In the final analysis, we must regard beauty, health and youth as intimately related. To the extent that you preserve one in your physical being, you also preserve the others. The uncooked fruit and vegetable diet, pure water, sleep and rest, sunshine, strong relationships, exercise, fresh air, fasting if necessary, and abstinence from drugs, vaccines, serums and other toxins are the prime requirements in your attempt to preserve your youth, health and beauty as long as you can” (The Fountain of Youth).

The face becomes more beautiful with a raw diet. “Skin loses its slackness and puffiness and clings to the bones better,” write Susannah and Leslie Kenton (Raw Energy, p. 90). “The true shape of the face emerges where once it was obscured by excess water retention and poor circulation. Lines become softer. Eyes take on the clarity and brightness one usually associates with children or with super-fit athletes.”

Nutritionist Natalia Rose, author of The Raw Food Detox Diet, profoundly praises the raw food diet as being the key to permanent weight loss. It’s a lifestyle in which a woman can even attain her perfect shape without formal exercise or counting calories or grams of fat or carbohydrates and regardless of having had several children. The skin tone improves as cells become healthier and tighter. One dares to go out without make-up.

Tonya Zavasta describes her lifelong obsession with attaining beauty, which she finally discovered in her 40s through a 100% raw food diet. In her book Your Right to Be Beautiful, she explains how each of us can fulfill our full beauty potential, which is robbed by the toxic accumulation of cooked foods, dairy, wheat, salt and drugs. “Beauty lies latent under cushions of retained fluids, deposits of fat and sick tissues. Your beauty is buried alive” (p. 134).

She goes on to explain that on a diet of uncooked foods, “The landscape of the body will change. Fat that has accumulated in pockets under the eyes and at the jaw will melt away. The lumpy potato look of one’s face will give way to sleek and smooth contours. The surface of the skin will become soft and smooth but still firm and supple. Visible pores will diminish. A sallow skin with a yellow pallor will turn into a porcelain-like complexion” (p. 137).

She furthermore describes the radiance and glow produced internally when there is “an abundance of clear, pink, almost transparent cells that light up the face,” which is produced by superior blood circulation. Even the most beautiful supermodel would be enhanced by a raw food diet. She notes that the modern-day version of beauty is more in harmony with health than perhaps ever before, hence “the quest for beauty, instead of a narcissistic preoccupation, becomes a noble pursuit.”

Tonya came across many women who would not eat a raw diet for their health, preferring just to take medications. However, they would go raw for beauty, as there is no pill for beauty. In her book Beautiful on Raw, ten women contributed their own experiences of how raw diets added to their beauty.

Various observations were that hair grew out with color instead of gray, sometimes with natural waves or curls, and fingernails grew strong, long and shapely. Cellulite vanished effortlessly. Puffiness in the body and face disappeared, and the skin cleared up. These women often get complimented on the “glow” of their faces. They feel confident without make-up. Their inner beauty and confidence also radiate. They look younger than ever and have no fear whatsoever of getting old. One of the women is 64 and still gets checked out by “the young whippersnappers” when she is at the gym!

Interestingly, many of them, before eating raw, had never been called “beautiful” by anyone, even when they were much younger. One of the women wrote about suddenly becoming aware of the benefits of being attractive, benefits which one who had always been beautiful would take for granted. People were nicer to her, cops didn’t give her tickets, and salespeople waited on her first.

The Answer To Being Beautiful

It is said that absence makes the heart grow fonder – well so does Beauty – the more you peer at something beautiful the more you yearn for it. Beauty injects an essence of elegance – an emotion felt within which comes with feeling good about your self. But leading a healthy lifestyle has to be the most important of all.

Health plays a major role in contributing to the beautiful feeling experienced when looking good. Many women tend to suffer from Beauty and the Beast syndrome – where one day an effort is made to look good and then the next – no matter what you do – it just is not happening. Why? Well it is no secret; there are two main key issues to take claim of being beautiful. and that is the (take 2 factor) number 1 look good and 2 is feel good – if you don`t feel good about yourself then don`t expect to look good.

Transformation can take place in the beauty department if you make a stand and sort yourself out. Your health dominates how you feel – how you look and how you think so any concerns that are causing you sorrow whether it be a health or beauty matter then remember a problem shared is a problem halved. Speak with your local GP and once you are given the all clear – take note of the change in your whole entity, a personality change comes with looking beautiful.

A fabulous way to find the beauty within – is to let it out. Inner beauty can be released by practising yoga. Yoga is an amazing exercise that understands what the body`s wants and needs are. Anxiety and tension bring on frowns – meaning more wrinkles, this is not part of any known beauty package. A beautiful person injects happiness and smiles that come from the heart (a healthy one)

Feeling good about your self is the first step in the right direction to making your beauty regime a more pleasurable one – guaranteed. Once you have claimed a content mind minus any matters of concern – it is then after you apply your beauty cosmetics you will notice the mirror image of yourself will be that of a changed person. Confront the reflection of the beast in the mirror and watch the beauty transformation take place. Notice how the facial skin turns to that of a fresh complexion – see how the lip gloss is now a glow. All because you feel good.

Beauty /Health magazines have wonderful ideas and tips on being beautiful and you will find many online support centres on beauty very fulfilling but what you have to bear in mind is, these beauty support groups on health and fashion do just that – give advice.

For Beauty, Health and Wellness

Feng shui aquariums are not merely an attractive addition to any office or home but are praised as a origin of wealth Chi. What makes these aquariums an exceptional thing to have is that they have a superb balance of the five feng shui elements.

* The water element is obvious since it is the water in the aquarium.
* The wood component consists of the plants.
* The metal component is considered the aquarium’s housing.
* The earth element is the gravel and any rocks you put in your aquarium.
* The fire element is considered the lighting and can also actually come from the colors of a certain fish.

This sort of harmony is rather difficult to recreate in another way and is probably not as cool as an aquarium.

The perfect location for an aquarium like this is in the Southeast part of your room or space. This is actually the area that is connected with riches and abundance. That is double the wealth energy flowing through that area.

The most usual fish to put into a feng shui aquarium are your basic goldfish or koi. They have a pleasant color and are also very vigorous. The dragon fish can be used in feng shui aquariums also but they can be pretty expensive.

Make certain one of your fish is black and don’t get more than 10 fish total. As with any living creatures, do not forget to clean and maintain your feng shui aquarium so that it can continue to bring you positive energy. You want to make sure to get rid of and replace dead fish immediately and keep all of the plants alive, green, and healthy.

The aquarium is required to be in top condition to positively affect your wealth Chi. So make sure you maintain it properly every day.

Your Daily Dose of Beauty, Health

Matcha is Japanese green tea powder used as tea or as a component in some recipes. Matcha is an important drink in the traditional Japanese and Buddhist tea ceremony and has been drunk in Japan for hundreds of years. Matcha drinkers ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water. Matcha tea drink provides 4 to 6 hours of mild steady energy. It is a stimulant and a relaxant at the same time: it is ideal for focusing on work, exercises, or meditation. Matcha has numerous health benefits. It is a nutritious beverage. It is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, fiber and chlorophyll. Matcha contains Catechins only found in green tea. Matcha is naturally mood enhancing. It is an ideal drink for diabetics: it will not raise insulin levels as it is sugar-free.

In terms of nutritional value and antioxidant content, 1 cup of matcha is equal to 10 cups of green tea.

Matcha tea is good for antioxidant protection. Green teas contain a high amount of antioxidants. According to research capacity of matcha tea is higher than blueberries and spinach, known for their high antioxidants levels.

Matcha tea can prevent cancer disease. Scientific research has shown that green tea drinkers have significantly lower risk of cancer disease. Green tea contains a high level of ‘Catechin Polyphenols’. The catechin has the most powerful cancer-fighting properties. Matchatea may be especially helpful in preventing lung, prostrate, breast and skin cancers and helpful against lung cancer in former and present cigarette smokers.

Matcha tea can help in cleansing the body. Matcha tea is a chlorophyll rich food. Chlorophyll is a pigment which gives the leaves their green color.

Beauty & Health Oils

I believe in natural home remedies more than some of the traditional scientific cures when possible. I believe natural products can do wonders for your health and beauty. Ailments can be treated with natural methods to resolve physical and emotional issues in many cases rather than with medication. These are alternatives that can be used for different kinds of treatments and conditions. Some of the alternatives to prescriptions can be exercise, dance, yoga, massage, essential oils, etc. Essential oils have been used in the world for centuries as remedies for many different health issues and they are believed to work well with human nature because they are used in their natural state therefore having a natural condition as the common basis for great results. They are easily absorbed by the skin. Accordingly some of the studied strong properties are fighting bacteria, fungi, virus, etc. and repelling insects and other species. Described below are some of the benefits of using essential oils: –

Common uses for relaxation are lavender, ylang ylang, rose, geranium, sandalwood. –

For mood changes try sage, fennel, jasmine or lavender. –

To focus: eucalyptus, basil, peppermint.For pain, sorrow: lavender, sage, eucalyptus, juniper.- Feet corns: one drop each of lemon, oregano, tangerine & myrrh oil.- Inhale eucalyptus or peppermint oil for stuffy sinuses.-

To help hair growth use 4 to 6 drops of rosemary, ylang ylang, cedarwood and clary sage in shampoo.-

For dandruff use 5 drops of lemon oil, one drop of rosemary or sage, and one drop of lavender oil all mixed in a quart of water.

A lot of information is available on the Internet, companies that sell these oils and books on how to use them so that these alternative methods can be really useful as treatments and beauty products. Coconut oil has excellent properties and it does not turn into fat in the body unlike other oils like soy or corn. Coconut oil contains an easy fuel that the body burns without converting it into fat called medium-chain triglycerides (MCT). This fuel (MCT) is more easily absorbed and converted to energy quicker, while most other cooking oils and fats contain long-chain triglycerides (LCT) which are usually stored as fat. For centuries large amounts of coconut have been produced and consumed as food and oil every day in the tropics.

The amount of oil consumed in their diet does not increase their weight but on the contrary helps them to be healthy and lean. When they utilize the other widely used common oils they gain weight and other conditions that result from obesity and are challenges in modern everyday life. Animals fed with coconut oil become lean. This has also been a known fact for people who are in the animal feed business for a long time. When domestic animals are given common vegetable oils, they increase their weight and at the same time produce fatty meat. Coconut oil is one of the best oils you can directly use on your skin and hair, healing and restoring skin to a younger appearance. It has also been known to give temporary relief to skin problems like rashes, help with people who suffer from yeast infections in the skin, recover slow thyroids by reviving production of extra thyroid hormones, as well as many other skin problems. Coconut oil softens and smooths your skin, has antioxidant properties that protect the skin from free severe damage and is an excellent massage oil too. It also helps the body absorb other nutrients like Vitamin E more effectively. It is considered one of the best oils for your health.

Beauty, Health, and Lifestyle

Beauty is something that everyone loves. We all love to look our best when it comes to either going out with your friends, your job, or even just simply because you want to look your best all of the time. Beauty is one of the most common things in the world because it’s a language that many people can speak and share with one another. Most of the time we hate to say it, but it’s women because they always come up with the latest and greatest styles on the market. There is absolutely nothing guys can do about it except envy them for it because they always look their best even when they aren’t trying to. It’s just their common nature. Now I’m here to discuss what types of cosmetics and hottest trends will make you the most beautiful in the way you want them to be.

One question on everybody’s minds is “How do you do this, but stay on an affordable budget and why do people do it?”I can tell you that people do it because they always want to stay hip and young and stay in the game with the younger generations. A huge thing people do is to be something that they’re not and then when they try to act like it, they feel insecure and terrible on the inside that they’re doing it in the first place. The other question is how do you stay on a affordable budget and still get the accessories, cosmetics, and fashion items that you want?I’ll tell you that you should count the amount of money you have and divide it up evenly and make sure your not going over your budget at all. I always found that if I’m going to buy a product I should look how much it is and how much I have in my pocket.

Another huge key element is if you feel comfortable with what your doing to yourself and if it makes you feel bad or not? When it comes to beauty, you always want to get what makes you feel comfortable and if you like the way you look then you need to just go with your first instinct. If you ever see celebrities on TV and like the ad and want the product that they are advertising and it is too much for you and out of your budget, than what you could do is find a similar product, but cheaper than the original that was on TV. If you do it that way you could possibly end up saving money and getting more things that you wanted and by following the same process. Well sure they won’t be the same exact products as you wanted, but they will be very similar to each other.

Another thing that a lot of people worry about is their age. As a matter of fact your age has nothing to do with it and no matter what age you are you can always turn yourself around and find the greatest fashions in your own age group. There are plenty of older people that look great and keep track of themselves very well. It doesn’t matter how old or how young you are, but the biggest factor is your health and how well you take care of yourself. A lot of people think though that women are always the more stylish ones, but that’s actually true, but believe me there are plenty of stylish guys out there as well, but women we have to hand it over to you because you guys always do look the best whenever we are around you, so are hats are off to you on this. Things though that can make a difference are like some exercise 3-4 times a week or even 60 minutes a day, and the biggest thing to improve your look are cosmetics and those can make you look so much better, but it also depends on the products that your putting on yourself. Basically in so many words what you want to do with the things you get are yours to mess around with. Another important factor is the way you take care of yourself. No matter what age you are, you should always take care of your body and make sure nothing bad happens to it.

Low Carb Diabetic Diet

Diabetes is an illness that is characterized when the body is unable to produce insulin or when the body is not able to respond to the insulin produced in the body. The result of this is high blood sugar content inside the body. That is why, diabetics are required a low carb diabetic diet, which can help regulate blood sugar levels inside the body.

It is a common misconception that the only food that diabetics cannot eat is sugar. That is not true, if there is one thing that diabetics have to look out for is the high amount of carbohydrates inside their bodies. This is because high carbo food such as rice, bread and flour and starch in potatoes, corn and other crops can cause a huge spike in the blood glucose level inside the body. What doctors usually prepare for diabetics are diets with less carbohydrate, but more on vegetables and healthy grains and fiber.

Also, maintaining a low carb diabetic diet can help some diabetics restore the balance of their blood sugar levels and insulin medication. Why is that? Insulin is essentially a hormone that helps in breaking down fats and glucose in the body. Without insulin, the body’s sugar in the blood is not broken that causing sugar to remain in the blood. With a low carb diet, glucose in blood is significantly decreased, therefore the diabetic person can further regulate or even reduce her insulin intake.

The low carb diabetic diet can help a patient decrease his blood sugar level and improve his condition. As mentioned, less carbohydrates means less sugar in the blood. But apart from that, the low carb diet can help a patient lose a lot of weight. And by losing weight, a patient is already on the way to improvement. This is because losing weight can extremely reduce glucose in the blood. In conclusion, to be able to improve a diabetic’s health, eating low carbohydrate diet is the way to go because it can improve he diabetic’s body reducing body weight and blood glucose.
