Feeling Good and Happy

Posted by peggysue on February 7, 2015 in Admirable, Courage, Food, Healthy Choices, Passion and Joy, Selfless People with Comments closed |

 

Diet can make all the difference in the world on how you feel. It is what goes in your body that affects your engine.

In Northern MN and Wisconsin we are often deficient in vitamin D3. It accounts for more cancers. We are often low in omega 3’s or fish oil.

People who eat more whole food and avoid highly processed food are at decreased risk of developing dementia, anxiety and depression.

It is so easy to grab junk food, eat too many snacks, and have too many sweets.

Skip desserts, candy, fried foods, high fat dairy, refined cereals. Drink less and don’t smoke.

Did you know that people in Greece and other Mediterranean areas eat more fruits vegetables, unrefined grains, legumes, nuts, fish and olive oil? I remember when we had two different French students living at our house. Their families and servants went to the market every day to get fresh fruits and vegetables.

Try frozen grapes or bananas.

Eat a Mediterranean diet to improve your mood.

Try eating less red meat.

Try new foods such as eggplant drip, olives, tomatoes, chickpeas.

Eat foods rich in folate, magnesium B12, B vitamines.

Cut out as much of the processed foods as possible.

With the high cost of meat, try cutting back on so much red meat and eat more fish, a vegetarian diet.

People who eat healthier feel better. Their mood is better.

Cooking can be fun. Create new hot dishes with more veggies.

Potassium Deficiency

Posted by peggysue on February 1, 2015 in Admirable, Courage, Food, Healthy Choices, Hope, Passion and Joy, Selfless People with Comments closed |

Prescription drugs can make us deficient in potassium. Even cortisone shots that are done frequently can effect a person’s potassium.

A potassium test is part of ones metabolic profile-blood mineral section of the test. Often when you a physical a stand blood test is done.

Magnesium deficiency is a bigger problem than one may think. The World Health Organization states that 68% of the people in the United States are deficient. This is scary.

We can’t just go and buy the pills. Too much potassium is also bad for you. Adults need about 310-420 mg a day to provide cellular function. Cellular function is really important.

Studies have recognized the value of potassium in heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, inflammatory related disorders, etc.

Drugs and Side Effects

Posted by peggysue on January 30, 2015 in Admirable, Courage, Food, Healthy Choices, Hope, Passion and Joy, Selfless People with Comments closed |

Most of us do not know that there are side effects from various drugs, and they can have an effect on our health.

For example, Magnesium is found inside of our cells. It is important.  You should be tested for a magnesium deficiency if you are on long term antibiotics, antacids, acid blockers, antivirals, cardiac Glycoside, Corticosteroids, Diuretics, Hormone Replacement Therapy and Central Nervous System Stimulants. In really like you maybe on hydrochlorothiazide for blood pressure, a re flux med like Prilosec, etc.

I know I had a Magnesium deficiency at one time and I was on two drugs in these categories. It is important to not be deficient or take too much. Talk to your doctor.
