Simple cooking methods flush arsenic out of rice ("more hot water washing can flush out arsenic")

Simple cooking methods flush arsenic out of rice ("more hot water washing can flush out arsenic") | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it
Preparing rice in a coffee machine can halve levels of the naturally occurring substance.

Cooking rice by repeatedly flushing it through with fresh hot water can remove much of the grain’s stored arsenic, researchers have found — a tip that could lessen levels of the toxic substance in one of the world’s most popular foods.

Billions of people eat rice daily, but it contributes more arsenic to the human diet than any other food. Conventionally grown in flooded paddies, rice takes up more arsenic (which occurs naturally in water and soil as part of an inorganic compound) than do other grains. High levels of arsenic in food have been linked to different types of cancer, and other health problems.

Andrew Meharg, a plant and soil scientist at Queen’s University Belfast, UK, wondered whether cooking the grain in a different way might help to lessen the health risk. The standard method for making rice — boiling it in a pot until it soaks up all the liquid — binds into place any arsenic contained in the rice and the cooking water.

Meharg and colleagues found that using this method with increasing proportions of water removed progressively more arsenic — up to a 57% reduction with a ratio of 12 parts water to one part rice. That result confirmed that the arsenic is 'mobile' in liquid water, and thus can be removed.

The power of honey and cinnamon, when taken together ("super!!!")

The power of honey and cinnamon, when taken together ("super!!!") | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it

Great information!! Cinnamon and Honey...! Drug companies won't like this one getting around. Facts on Honey and Cinnamon:


It is found that a mix of honey and cinnamon cures most diseases. Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of today also note honey as very effective medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without side effects which is also a plus.Today's science says that even though honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm even diabetic patients. Researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on toast instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from heart attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack studies show you could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged; honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast, they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated) practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain -- and within a month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because of arthritis now started walking without pain.

BLADDER INFECTIONS: Take two tablespoons of cinnamon powder and one teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water and drink it. It destroys the germs in the bladder....who knew?

CHOLESTEROL: Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of Cinnamon Powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned for arthritic patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic cholesterol-could be cured. According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough, cold, and, clear the sinuses, and it's delicious too!

UPSET STOMACH: Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also is said to clear stomach ulcers from its root.

GAS: According to the studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that when Honey is taken with cinnamon powder the stomach is relieved of gas.

IMMUNE SYSTEM: Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacterial and viral attacks. Scientists have found that honey has various vitamins and iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white blood corpuscles (where DNA is contained) to fight bacterial and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION: Cinnamon powder sprinkled on two tablespoons of honey taken before food is eaten relieves acidity and digests the heaviest of meals

INFLUENZA: A scientist in Spain has proved that honey contains a natural 'Ingredient' which kills the influenza germs and saves the patient from flu.

LONGEVITY: Tea made with honey and cinnamon powder, when taken regularly, arrests the ravages of old age. Use four teaspoons of honey, one teaspoon of cinnamon powder, and three cups of boiling water to make a tea. Drink 1/4 cup, three to four times a day. It keeps the skin fresh and soft and arrests old age. Life spans increase and even a 100 year old will start performing the chores of a 20-year-old.

RASPY OR SORE THROAT: When throat has a tickle or is raspy, take one tablespoon of honey and sip until gone. Repeat every three hours until throat is without symptoms.

PIMPLES: Three tablespoons of honey and one teaspoon of cinnamon powder paste. Apply this paste on the pimples before sleeping and wash it off the next morning with warm water. When done daily for two weeks, it removes all pimples from the root.

SKIN INFECTIONS:Applying honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts on the affected parts cures eczema, ringworm and all types of skin Infections.

WEIGHT LOSS:Daily in the morning one half hour before breakfast and on an empty stomach, and at night before sleeping, drink honey and cinnamon powder boiled in one cup of water. When taken regularly, it reduces the weight of even the most obese person. Also, drinking this mixture regularly does not allow the fat to accumulate in the body even though the person may eat a high calorie diet.

CANCER: Recent research in Japan and Australia has revealed that advanced cancer of the stomach and bones have been cured successfully. Patients suffering from these kinds of cancer should daily take one tablespoon of honey with one teaspoon of cinnamon powder three times a day for one month.

FATIGUE: Recent studies have shown that the sugar content of honey is more helpful rather than being detrimental to the strength of the body. Senior citizens who take honey and cinnamon powder in equal parts are more alert and flexible. Dr. Milton, who has done research, says that a half tablespoon of honey taken in a glass of water and sprinkled with cinnamon powder, even when the vitality of the body starts to decrease, when taken daily after brushing and in the afternoon at about 3:00 P.M., the vitality of the body increases within a week.

BAD BREATH: People of South America, gargle with one teaspoon of honey and cinnamon powder mixed in hot water first thing in the morning so their breath stays fresh throughout the day.

HEARING LOSS: Daily morning and night honey and cinnamon powder, taken in equal parts restores hearing.

The safest way to obtain pure honey in India is to buy from the guys who remove honey from beehives. We often call them if a large hive develops around our home and they normally share 50% of the yield.

Can Your Wearable Device Really Help You Lose Weight And Get Fit?

Can Your Wearable Device Really Help You Lose Weight And Get Fit? | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it

Every year, scores of Americans make New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and get fit. And to ensure this year is really the year, many rely on technology for a boost. They sign up for gym memberships and boast about their workouts on social media. They purchase and proudly display the hottest health wearables like the FitBit, Fuelband, Jawbone, Misfit or Garmin.

Unfortunately, as the holidays fade away, so do many well-intentioned resolutions. By February, a third of all resolution-makers have given up on their goals. And although 10 percent of adults now own a fitness tracker, we can predict that over 30 percent of new wearers will abandon the device by the middle of the year.

Of course, it’s not technology’s fault our resolutions fall short. Exercising more and modifying what we eat depends on what’s inside us – good, old-fashioned willpower – much more than what’s on our wrists or Facebook walls. But before you lose hope or throw away your device, try these proven approaches to help you reach your 2015 goals.

1. Trade in your unrealistic expectations for specific, achievable goals
Unrealistic expectations almost always guarantee failure. Last year, bestselling author Chip Heath perfectly described the problem they pose to our health: “Exercise is particularly hard because we have a cultural picture of it that’s just unrealistic. We see ourselves dressing up in black spandex and going to a gym and glistening attractively as we exercise.”


Few fitness trackers or health apps have helped people commit to healthier lifestyles in the long run. Will 2015 be any different?

Of course, few of us resemble the picture-perfect models we see in fitness magazines. And few of us can commit the time needed to meet our expectations.

Imagine having gained a few pounds over the holidays you suddenly resolve to get up at 5 a.m. every day to run 5 miles. You’ll most likely fall short of this new-found expectation and quit before spring.

That’s why realistic goals are critical. One oft-mentioned goal is walking 10,000 steps per day. And the health benefits of doing this daily are many: increased metabolism, lower blood pressure, stronger heart and lungs, etc. But 10,000 steps a day turns out to be more than some people can make good on, at least in the beginning.

So, why not first commit to walking for 30 minutes each day? And if walking 30 minutes all at once seems overwhelming, break it down into smaller increments. Five-minute stretches of exercise done six times a day has the same net impact as 30 minutes all at once. Park a little further away from your final destination and walk five minutes in each direction. Then take a 10 minute walk during your lunch break with a friend. And then get up at halftime or between shows to walk 10 minutes around the block. Just like that, you’ve walked 30 minutes.

If losing weight is your goal, try making one or two small changes instead of a complete dietary overhaul. Eliminate one sugary soda a day from your diet and you could lose as much as a half-pound per week. Unlike unrealistic expectations, achievable daily goals help you form new habits. After all, goals can fit into your lifestyle. Unrealistic expectations only compete with it.

2. Confront reality every day
In the same way that habit improves the likelihood of success, neglecting a commitment increases the probability you’ll miss your goal the next day.

When goals exist only in your head, it’s easy to forget whether you’ve skipped a day or two. But when you stare down an empty space in your fitness log, you’ll likely resolve not to let the whitespace double the next day. Without that visual reminder, a lost day can turn into a lost week, month or year.

Goals are essential, but you are far more likely to complete them when you record your progress and confront your failures. Whether written on a piece of paper and taped to the fridge or recorded electronically in your smartphone, recording your activity creates accountability. And when you check off each day’s success,   you experience an immediate reward: positive reinforcement.

3. To lose weight, pay attention to both sides of the equation
If you want to lose weight, you must understand and pay attention to both calories taken in and calories burned. The equation for losing weight is fairly simple: burn more calories than you consume.

As Americans, we tend to underestimate the number of calories in the food we eat. If you don’t believe it, just guess how many calories are in a typical fast-food combo meal. Then look it up.

Indeed, math is important here. Eat 300 fewer calories and walk 3 miles each day, and you’ll lose close to a pound per week – and 20 pounds before the middle of the year.

Wearable devices and smartphone apps can assist you. They can tell you whether you’ve covered the 3-mile distance and help you track the calories you consume. The weight-loss equation may be simple, but losing weight is hard. Use your wearable device and smartphone to measure your progress, make exercise a consistent habit and celebrate your daily successes.

4. Force the habit by committing to others
Fitness trackers themselves are good for one thing: tracking. But they can’t roll you out of bed or put your walking shoes on for you. You need to make exercise a habit.

We all know old habits die hard. But we sometimes underestimate how hard it is to form new ones. According to a study from University College London, it can take as long as 66 days to form a new habit.

That’s why one of the best ways to form (or force) a fitness habit is by committing to others.

It’s hard to hold yourself accountable. But when you’re accountable to someone else – say, to meet a friend outside your house at a certain time on Saturday morning – you’re less likely to flake out. We are social creatures and we care what others think of us. We don’t like letting our friends and family down.

By joining a walking or running group, you commit not only to your own fitness but to the well-being of others. And if you’re schedule’s too unpredictable for a morning or evening running group, make a digital commitment that works with your calendar.

There’s a whole host of fitness apps that let you rely on others for motivation while engaging in friendly competition. And many of them link up with your wearable device. Socializing fitness creates positive reinforcement and releases powerful neurotransmitters in your brain that lead to lifelong habits.

Over time, as exercise becomes a habit, the experience shifts from something that’s difficult to complete to something that’s painful to miss. This is the power of a positive habit.

And after a while, without knowing how it happened, you’ll find yourself reaching new fitness milestones as you increase your distance and speed.

Good habits form when you set goals, write them down, confront reality every day and make commitments to others. The wearable device you received as a holiday present or the health app you downloaded on your smart phone can help. But the essential keys to a healthier 2015 reside in you.

Great advice on how to really reach your healthful living goals in 2015. Wearables and apps can help, but you'll need behavioral changes and true commitment to reaching your goals as well.

Kaitlyn Gefroh's curator insight, March 1, 11:41 AM

The fourth piece of advice that Dr. Pearl gives in this Forbes article is "force the habit by committing to others". That's so true and it's exactly what group fitness does for me. Either you commit to attend classes with your friends and motivate each other, or you develop a bond with your favorite instructor. As an instructor, I'm incredibly proud of my "regular" participants, and I let them know it. I try to hold them accountable and let them know that I notice when they're absent. I know it means a lot to people, as it used to be me with my previous instructors.

Did you know that your immune system is the seat of your health? The health of your gut is just as important as the health of your brain, your liver, and other organs. When your G.i. tract is compromised it places a tremendous toll on your organs and can  set off a firestorm of health problems; physical, emotional, and mental.

 

When you eat sugars and processed non foods which are filled with nutritional deficiencies  being devoid of minerals, vitamins, nutrients and rife with unhealthy fats (industrial seed oils like soybean, cottonseed, safflower, and canola), simple carbs which spike your blood sugar (white flours, rice, sugar, refined processed breads, crackers, cookies etc), gluten, ,dairy foods, alcohol, sodas, and `artificial sweeteners, preservatives, additives, emulsifiers, and GMOs; you're setting up a cascade of free radicals that cause inflammation in your body.

 

Wait there's more. Another cause of unhealthy gut is food sensitivities, including chemical, pharmacological, enzyme deficiencies, food intolerances, allergies. Infections, malabsorbtion, stomach acid issues, overuse of pharmaceutical drugs, overuse of antibiotics, consumption of animal foods from factory farms, stress, and lack of exercise also contribute to an unhealthy gut.

 

Health Tips:  Eat real whole plant based foods. Try to eat organic/certified organic as much as possible.  Eat foods that have been fermented and take Probiotics and or digestive enzymes ( help digest carbohydrates).. Eat foods that contain Prebiotics. Don't just take probiotics and eat unhealthy because that won't work. Add fermented foods to your meals at least once a week. Probiotics (high quality supplements) and fermented food will protect your gut. And take organic organic herbs as well from a qualified Herbologist.

 

Here's an easy delicious recipe for making sautéed veggies with miso. Miso comes several ways, with organic soybean, organic chickpeas (garbanzo beans), and organic black bean). Asian health markets and many other healthy grocery stores carry it. Make sure it's organic and non-GMO if you buy the original which is soybean based. In your skillet, sauté with filtered water, tamari, or a healthy oil like coconut, your fave veggies (red cabbage, daikon radish, onions, garlic, zucchini, kale or spinach any leafy green will do). (pictured above). Add sliced tempeh (fermented food) or garbanzo beans or any other plant protein you like.  When sautéed to your liking, add a few drops of rice vinegar (organic) and the miso. For beginners add 1-2 teaspoons. You can add 1 or 2 TBSP as you adjust to this zingy  flavorful taste. Eat with quinoa, brown rice, buckwheat or plain. This is a meal fit for a queen or king.

There's SIBO, Candida, bad bacteria and so much more that's lurking inside your stomach, small intestine and large intestine.

As  you previously read here in this site, 70-85% of your immune system is located in your gut.  It's so important for you to understand that what you consume, digest and absorb, has a direct link to what occurs in your immune system,  your digestive system, your heart, other organs, and your brain. Now some of you may not care, and that's your choice. For others of you who do care and want to make changes to help your body thrive, start today by reducing and/or eliminating processed junk foods loaded with fake ingredients, chemicals, hidden sugars, GMOs, pesticides, and food your doesn't recognize

 

Health Tips:  While you're reducing your food toxic overload, you might consider checking out your beauty care products, your home care products, the water you drink, prescription and/or over the counter meds, and yes even the very air you breathe. Unfortunately environmental toxins are everywhere today. So do your best to eliminate as many  as you can through the products you buy. Use DIY products that are plant based.

 

And unless you're having a severe infection, stay away from antibiotics which harm your good bacteria which inhabit your gut. Opt for fermented foods and high quality probiotics.

Top 15 Anti-Inflammatory Herbs For Aches and Pains - Healthy Holistic Living

If you’re currently taking drugs for your inflammation, then you need to read this article. First things first – chronic inflammation doesn’t need to be your enemy. That is, as long as you know how to properly...

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, July 23, 9:48 PM

Did you know by making simple lifestyle changes you can reduce your risk of getting inflammation which causes chronic disease?  First on your list would be to consume real whole plant based foods and reduce or eliminate all processed food and sugar. Real whole plant based foods are the original anti-inflammatory foods your body craves. You'd be surprised how your body responds when you give it the nutrients it needs. And when your body feels better, so do you.

 

Health tips:  Did you know that processed foods are biologically dead? Is this what you really want to eat? Probably not. when you grocery shop, use your hands and nose to feel/smell food that's ripe (hint more nutrients). When you incorporate the highest quality of food, which means the greater nutritional value, you're sending your body a love letter.

 

Go to Farmer's Markets on the weekends or during the week, if possible. Most of these foods are picked by hand ensuring you get the best bang for your buck.  If you're buying non organic, look for "locally grown" or "sustainably grown".

 

In your community, shop at a local market, not a big supermarket. Three good reasons: 1.  the travel time it takes for food to be displayed in your store. The longer the food sits in the truck, the less nutritional quality.  2.  And when you buy in your community, your money stays there.  3. Shopping local lets you learn more about the farmers whose produce you're buying and you have more say about what you want to see on the shelves.

 

Consider a CFA (Community food Association) and/or grow your own food in your own container/yard or in a community garden where you can meet others and collaborate on what you grow. Growing foods acknowledges your interconnectedness with nature and lets your children see where food really comes from.

Is It Better to Walk or Run?

Is It Better to Walk or Run? | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it
New studies that pit running against walking found that if your goal is to lose weight, running wins. But in other measures of health, walking can be at least as valuable as running — and in some instances more so.

 

"So to eat less, run first.

 

But on other measures of health, new science shows that walking can be at least as valuable as running — and in some instances, more so. A study published this month that again plumbed data from the Runners and Walkers Health Study found that both runners and walkers had equally diminished risks of developing age-related cataracts compared to sedentary people, an unexpected but excellent benefit of exercise.

 

And in perhaps the most comforting of the new studies, published last month in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology and again using numbers from the versatile Runners and Walkers Health Study, runners had far less risk of high blood pressure, unhealthy cholesterol profiles, diabetes and heart disease than their sedentary peers. But the walkers were doing even better. Runners, for instance, reduced their risk of heart disease by about 4.5 percent if they ran an hour a day. Walkers who expended the same amount of energy per day reduced their risk of heart disease by more than 9 percent."

How probiotics and prebiotics team up in your gut

Are you eating fermented foods, prebiotics,  and probiotics for good digestion and a healthy GI tract i.e. your gut? What are prebiotics? Prebiotics are the foods that feed your healthy bacteria. One type of soluble fiber called fructooligosaccharides (FOS) (found in veggies, fruits, grains) and an aloe juice product is a preferred meal for healthy bacteria. 

 

Health Tips:  Incorporating all three (fermented foods, prebiotic foods and taking a high quality probiotic supplement) with your daily meals, providing you are consuming all or mostly all healthy plant based foods will help your digestion to run smoothly. 

 

Asparagus, Jerusalem artichokes, garlic, onions, and bananas are the veggies rich in FOS. Fermented foods have been shown to preserve nutrients in foods and help break foods down to a more digestible state. Do your best to make your own fermented foods or buy organic products that have not been pasteurized. Pasteurization kills the health benefits. You can save money making your own fermented foods as store bought are spendy and don't last as long. Homemade fermented foods last longer due to lacto-fermentation.

 

Probiotics improve your immune system, bowel health, and help your digestion. Fermented foods give your body the benefits of probiotics.

Here’s how a five-day diet that mimics fasting may ‘reboot’ the body and reduce cancer risk

Here’s how a five-day diet that mimics fasting may ‘reboot’ the body and reduce cancer risk | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it

Now scientists say they've developed a five-day, once-a-month diet that mimics fasting -- and is safe.

 

In the study, which was published in the journal Cell Metabolism and funded by the National Institute on Aging, participants who intermittently fasted for three months had reduced risk factors for an amazing range of issues: aging, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease. While the number of study participants was small -- only 19 who tried the diet -- the results are so promising that the University of Southern California researcher who helped develop the regimen is already talking about trying to get approval from the Food and Drug Administration so that it can be recommended for patients.

Ray and Terry's 's curator insight, June 24, 11:09 AM

Ray & Terry have been recommending a partial fast system for years. The easiest way to get benefits? Fast from 7pm to 7am every day. There's a 12 hour fast with less effort. This ensures you aren't spiking blood sugar at bedtime or interrupting sleep with digestive processes.
