Your Zodiac Sign, Your Health

Your Zodiac Sign, Your Health | Health and Nutrition | Scoop.it
Many doctors used to take astrology seriously—and season of birth has been linked to increased risk for a number of serious diseases. Can modern medicine actually learn from stars and seasonality?
The BioSync Team's insight:

From the Article:  The season of your birth, it turns out, appears to have a strong influence on your future. Depending on whether you were born in the spring, summer, fall, or winter, you could have a higher or lower risk for: schizophrenia, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders, Type 1 diabetes, bipolar disorder, and allergies, among others. The season of your birth also seems to affect how long you live.

Don't Fall Victim To These Tricky Juice Labels. Here's the scoop on how tricky navigating the juice aisle can be at the grocery store and how to choose the best store bought juices for you and your family.
The BioSync Team's insight:

From the article:  There’s nothing like making fresh raw vegetable or fruit juice at home with your own juicer. But let’s be honest, it takes time, energy and a commitment to keep up the routine at home. The availability and the variety of store-bought juice concoctions have absolutely exploded on the market and tempt us with convenience, fancy marketings and a bunch of healthy buzz words.

Added sugars lurk everywhere, even in places we’ve come to know and love. Just because something is called a nectar doesn't mean it's healthy.

The BioSync Team's insight:


My advice is to give up stevia, aspartame, sucralose, sugar alcohols like xylitol and malitol, and all of the other heavily-used and marketed sweeteners unless you want to slow down your metabolism, gain weight, and become an addict.

Immediate Relief!

Immediate Relief! | Health and Nutrition | Scoop.it
About one fifth of Americans suffer irritable bowel syndrome that causes chronic constipation. Doctors have ignored an effective solution.
The BioSync Team's insight:

Of all the polite topics of conversation, the state of one’s intestines is probably at the bottom of most people’s lists. Let’s face it: Irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, gas, diverticulitis and colon cancer are simply not things we like to discuss. And yet, as the old expression goes, death begins in the colon. Don’t believe it? Ask any coroner. Autopsies often reveal colons that are plugged up to 80 percent with waste material.

– Vegetarian Times, March, 1998


Chronic constipation is the number one gastrointestinal complaint in the US and more fiber is NOT the solution!

The Organic Center  |   7 Simple Steps to Save on Organic | Health and Nutrition | Scoop.it

Organic food production methods promote biodiversity, the biological cycling of nutrients, and plant and animal health. Certified organic farmers may not use toxic synthetic pesticides, artificial fertilizers, and unnecessary hormones or antibiotics. Instead, they use practices that restore, maintain, and enhance soil and ecosystem health. GMOs, artificial ingredients, or trans fats may not be used.

The BioSync Team's insight:

We always check our favorite organic products websites for coupons and it's amazing how this simple savings routine really adds up over time.

Why a real breakfast of champions includes the yolk, too.
The BioSync Team's insight:

Recent studies and progressive nutritionists say it's time to include the yolk in your breakfast because:


  1. Egg yolks are nutrient dense
  2. Cholesterol has important functions in the body
  3. Dietary cholesterol, like that found in eggs, doesn’t raise blood cholesterol
  4. Whole eggs can lead to weight loss

If a food contains corn, soy, canola or sugar beets, and are sourced in the US, it has a 70-80% chance of containing genetically altered ingredients. Most processed food, many canned and frozen foods contain these ingredients.
