Magnesium-deficiency

I found out that I had some of the Symptoms mentioned in the article below (like Fatigue, Muscle Cramps, Trouble Paying Attention, Moody, etc) so I started taking a Magnesium Supplement at night before bed as well as started eating more Veggies including leafy greens and nuts! COSTCO has a Great Blend of Baby Greens (Spinach, Swiss-chard and Kale)– I use it in Smoothies as well as Saute it with Garlic and about 1/4 cup of Veggie or Chicken Broth.. YUM!!! You can also add Nuts and Beans to many Recipes and Soups.

Eat well, Live well

If you are feeling exhausted or noticing weird muscle cramps, you might be suffering from a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in your body. It affects everything from your heartbeat to your muscles to your hormones

The 2005-2006 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) revealed that at least half of the U.S. population had inadequate intakes of magnesium.

Loss of appetite, nausea, fatigue — the initial symptoms of magnesium deficiency. While initial symptoms can be minor, a magnesium deficiency may eventually cause noticeable problems with your muscle and nerve function such as tingling, cramping, numbness and contractions. In its worst stages, magnesium deficiency could even cause seizures, personality changes, or abnormal heart rhythms. Since only 1% of magnesium is found in your blood (most is in your bones or organs), a simple needle prick often won’t help determine your levels. Instead, diagnoses are usually…

Steps To Cut Out Processed Foods

Great Tips from a Fellow Blogger on Eating Clean since there are so many processed foods out there!

Eat well, Live well

Sometimes it’s good for our bodies to cut out processed foods every once in awhile. It’s easier to take small steps rather than doing it all at once. Here are some great tips by Lisa Leake to cut out processed foods in weeks.

Week one: Eat a minimum of two different fruits or vegetables (preferably organic) with every breakfast, lunch, and dinner meal.

Week two: Beverages will be limited to coffee, tea, water, and milk (only naturally sweetened with a little honey or 100% pure maple syrup)

Week three: All meat consumed this week will be locally raised and will be limited to 3-4 times per week

Week four: No fast food or any foods that have been deep-fried in oil.

Week five: Try a minimum of two new whole foods that you’ve never had before.

Week six: Do not eat any food products that are labeled as “low-fat,” “lite,” “light,” “reduced…

Tips for Treating and Preventing Acne

Got a Pimple (a.k.a. Acne) or does your skin just keep feeling oily?

It may be due to what you are you are using to cleanse your face or what you are eating. It can also depend on your hormone & stress levels as well as that time of the month (if you are a female). — My skin tends to get more oily during that time and I have to wash my face more.

There are other reasons and factors as well for acne. Below are a some Reasons, Products and Tips to help you keep your skin, Glowing, Blemish-free & Healthy.

This Chart (right) from Camera Press is a Handy Guide to why you may develop acne in certain areas of your face.

Keep Facial Oils In Check
Maintaining your skins oil levels are important when it comes to controlling acne. Using soap and water as well as too much witch hazel or toner can have an opposite affect on your skin giving it more oil. I find that using Alcohol-free products or products that are formulated with .2% Salacytic acid are best as well as keeping skin moisturized, since soap can strip your skin of it’s natural oils. Having a Daily Skincare Routine is what I find most helpful for preventing acne. — (Skincare products I recommend to try are Avon’s Clearskin or Elements, Face Washes – Starting at 4.99!) Each product is formulated for different skin types.  These are also great products for Teenagers who’s hormone levels are bouncing up and down. (see Product Charts Below)

Try to Keep your Stress Level Down
This is easier said than done in most cases. Work, Family, daily life, etc are all stress factors that can weaken your immune system, making it easier for bacteria to build up, this will also trigger the body’s release of cortisone levels, (anti-stress hormone). Stress also leads to weight gain when it continues for a period of time. Take a Few Moments to find Different Ways to Relax. If time allows, take a Relaxing & De-Stressing DETOX BATH.

Watch what you Eat
Items that will Spike your Blood Sugar (processed sugar, fried foods, corn syrup, excess amounts of pasta, & potatoes) have been linked to acne. Try to LIMIT Your Portions and Intake of these foods — Yes, it’s easy to go to them when you are stressed and our body Does crave it. (I find it helpful to EAT More Veggies, Fruit, Smoothies, and Drinking More Water when these cravings hit).

If you already have pimples, it’s recommended NOT to pop them as they may develop scarring as a result. If your skin isn’t clearing up you may want to see a Dermatologist to make sure there isn’t any other underlying problem.

Here is an interesting Chart on How Acne Starts on the skin:
