How Alkalizing Your Body Can Improve Your Health

Alkalising can be a powerful way for us to support our cells so they can work at their best. A powerful way to accelerate healing in your body is to eat alkaline inducing whole foods. Alkalising foods can help to regulate our energy intake, assist our cardiovascular system and even how we metabolise proteins.

 

If you have a weight issue and/or suspect you may have a thyroid issue try having protein for breakfast instead of in the evening, this can make a huge difference.

 

What to Eliminate from Your Diet:

  • Additive loaded processed and fast foods.

 

  • Remove all foods containing refined flour and gluten including bread and other wheat products such as breakfast cereals and pasta. Gluten can cause gut problems like malabsorption syndrome and leaky gut syndrome.

 

  • Remove all dairy products from your diet. Try unsweetened almond, macadamia or coconut milk instead.

 

  • Avoid sugar, particularly refined sugars. Now I know this is a hard one because we are addicted to sugar but it is really important.

 

  • Avoid alcohol because it is loaded with sugar too. If you cannot live without it then cut it down to one or two glasses, once or twice a week.

 

What to add to your diet:

  • Eat whole foods… not processed or fast foods which are loaded with additives.

 

  • Try going to your local health food store and creating your own breakfast power mix with non-wheat, no-GMO cereals, nuts and fresh fruits.

 

  • Eat only pasture-raised, grass-fed animal meats that contain no hormones boosters and antibiotics.

 

  • Fish like wild-caught salmon and sardines.

 

  • Try unsweetened almond, macadamia or coconut milk instead of dairy milk especially if you suspect you maybe lactose intolerant. Actually you not lactose intolerant… you are an adult… milk is for infants (and preferably mother’s milk).

 

  • Organic cold-pressed coconut oil (anti-inflammatory) or pure organic extra virgin olive oil (not for cooking on high heat as it breaks down into carcinogens, use coconut oil instead as it has the highest heat threshold).

 

  • Eat lots of coniferous vegetables like broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower.

 

  • Add beans (not baked beans as they have sugar in them) and eggs into your diet.

 

  • Introduce garlic and red onions to your evening meal.

 

  • Eat lots of watermelon (richest source of L-Citrulline) and other melons, cucumbers, onions, garlic and chick peas which also contain L-Citrulline. (Your kidneys change L-Citrulline into another amino acid called L-Arginine and a chemical called nitric oxide. These compounds are important to your heart and blood vessel health. They can also boost your immune system.

 

  • Natural food sources containing L-Arginine which include turkey (richest source), chicken, pork, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, spirulina (seaweed) and quinoa.

 

  • Include a high-quality pre and probiotic formula

 

  • Add an alkalizing booster powder containing Magnesium Carbonate, Citric Acid, Potassium Bicarbonate and bicarbonate of soda.

 

  • Supplement with high-quality nutritional supplements, they are more expensive but have a better absorption rate and less additives, and preferably look for the highest grade pharmaceutical-grade rather than the lower medical-grade or the lowest grade cosmetic or nutritional grade supplements (most commonly found on chemist and supermarket shelves).

 

  • Have protein smoothie for breakfast (PEA protein powder, chia seeds, mixed berries, bananas, strawberries, mangoes (skin and all) and other fresh seasonal fruits).

 

A Warning about Whey Protein Powders

Whey Protein

Dr. Art Ayers, a former professor at Harvard University with a Ph. D. in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, had this to say about whey shakes:

“Avoid whey protein (a by-product of the dairy industry) as it may destabilize the gut microbiota by disrupting the gut flora. This is why it can facilitate weight gain or loss, since gut flora are involved in weight stability but at what cost. But whey shakes also have proteins that are partially digested to produce antimicrobial peptides and other factors that disrupt adult gut flora. I think that the whey shakes work temporarily, because they destabilize the gut microbiota that are providing part of the metabolic set point that helps the body to resist weight change from excess or insufficient dietary calories. Whey protein supplements contain peptides and hormones that may negatively impact human health.”

 

Calcium Caseinate

Dietary supplement ‘calcium caseinate’ is a protein that is obtained from casein present in skim and milk. Calcium caseinate, micellar casein, and milk casein isolate are the three types of casein proteins, out of which calcium caseinate is the lowest quality casein.

Calcium Caseinate does not contain pure casein but a highly processed variant of casein, called calcium caseinate. It cannot offer similar health benefits as offered by casein. Proteins that undergo heating (processing involves exposure to high heat) and various other chemical processes often lose many of the functional benefits. They are said to be denatured (different from their original, natural structure). Such proteins can prove to be harmful to your health.

 

Possible Side effects

 

  • Those that are lactose-intolerant may experience stomach pain and bloating (excess gas and pressure in stomach). They are at a higher risk for developing gastrointestinal problems. Excessive consumption of this supplement may result in heartburn, indigestion, etc.

 

  • Acid casein is treated with the chemical calcium hydroxide (alkali) to get calcium caseinate. Such chemical alkalies may curb and damage the nutrient-absorbing capacity of your digestive system.

 

  • Because it is exposed to high heat during processing, the caseinate becomes an ultra thermolyzed protein combined with MSG (a by-product of protein thermolyzation). Consumption of this protein may lead to headaches, chest pain, nausea, weakness, heart palpitations, etc. It is true that more research is needed to prove these facts. Most people experience short-term reactions to MSG that don’t require any treatment, but possibility of long-term effects cannot be completely denied. Dangers of MSG include brain damage, weight gain, obesity, liver inflammation, type 2 diabetes, etc. The MSG in disguise can trigger your allergies too.

 

  • It is difficult for the human stomach to digest the denatured protein completely. So, some undigested protein enters the colon. There, it is fermented by colonic bacteria. This results in formation of highly carcinogenic phenolic compounds that contribute to the growth of colonic tumours. Thus, ultra thermalised casein can increase the risk of colon cancer.

 

  • Researchers and doctors are of the opinion that casein peptides can seriously affect blood pressure levels during and after surgery.

 

  • It has been observed that casein products interfere with the adsorption of certain drugs which can eventually result in serious health issues.

 

  • Some people are allergic to casein and may have a life-threatening reaction.

 

Dr. Russell Blaylock M.D., has described in his book “Excitotoxins: The Taste that Kills” that calcium and sodium caseinates as food additives always contain free glutamate. The review of this book is available on the American Nutrition Association’s Nutrition Digest, Volume 36, No. 4. Although MSG is not added to the supplement as an ingredient, it is formed during processing, and therefore, it may not be mentioned on the label. To be on the safe side, pregnant and breastfeeding women and those who are about to undergo a surgery should avoid taking calcium caseinate supplement.

Fructose Excess in your Protein Powders

It’s good to keep in mind though that fructose, in small amounts, has been in our diet for a very long time as a species and that we usually handle small amounts very well. The real damage is when the high sugar habit becomes chronic and is repeated day after day like consuming protein powders with a large Fructose component.

 

Here are a few known possible health issues:

Fructose can only be metabolized by the liver and can’t be used for energy by your body’s cells. It’s therefore not only completely useless for the body, but is also a toxin in high enough amount because the job of the liver is to get rid of it, mainly by transforming it into fat and sending that fat to our fat cells. Excess fructose damages the liver and leads to insulin resistance in the liver as well as fatty liver disease.

 

Fructose reacts with proteins and polyunsaturated fats in our bodies 7 times more than glucose. This reaction creates AGEs (advanced glycation end-products), which are compounds that create oxidative damage in our cells and ultimately lead or contribute to inflammation and a host of chronic diseases.

 

Fructose increases uric acid production, which, in excess, can cause gout, kidney stones and precipitate or aggravate hypertension.

 

While most of your body’s cells can’t use fructose as a source of energy, the bacteria in your gut can and excess fructose can create gut flora imbalances, promote bacterial overgrowth and promote the growth of pathogenic bacteria.

 

In part because of the damage done to the liver, chronic excess fructose causes dyslipidemia, which means that your blood lipid markers tend to shift towards numbers that indicate a risk for heart disease.

 

Fructose rapidly causes leptin resistance. Leptin is a hormone that controls appetite and metabolism to maintain a normal weight. Leptin resistant people tend to gain fat and become obese really easily.

 

Excess fructose alone can cause all the problems associated with the metabolic syndrome (diabetes, obesity, heart disease).

 

Cancer cells thrive and proliferate very well with fructose as their energy source.

 

Excess fructose also affects brain functioning, especially as it relates to appetite regulation. It has also been shown to impair memory in rats.

Stress, Lack of Energy and Adrenal Fatigue…

We live in an age of where chronic stress is fast becoming the major contributor fatigue, brain fog, ailments and pain in the body and weight gain… and in many cases… under-weight issues.

 

It is estimated that up to 90% of visits to a doctor involves stress. Stress about our relationships… our family… our children… and our health. And throw in workplace and environmental stress and you have a toxic minefield.

 

 

But the most important thing that no one is telling you is that fatigue and lack of focus may very well be adrenal fatigue. Largely the result of mental, physical and emotional stress… along with poor nutrition and lifestyle… adrenal fatigue is fast becoming an invisible epidemic.

 

And with our modern busy lives, it often feels like its never-ending battle, trying to eat well and live a balanced lifestyle.

 

Nutrient deficiencies are real! Many of us have low levels of selenium, vitamin D, vitamin E and low levels of the B vitamins, especially vitamin B12.

 

Some powerful supplements for stress-relief, anxiety and depression include; Coenzyme Q10 (Co-Q10), 5-HTP, Quercetin, L-Tryptophan, Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), Taurine, Glycine, L-Phenylalanine, Ashwagandha Extract, Bacopa Monnieri Extract, Valerian Root Extract, Passion Flower Extract, Hops Extract, Chamomile Extract, Melatonin, L-Theanine, Skullcap Extract.

 

I also want you to remember that stress is not just caused by external factors, but can also be self-induced due to our thought patterns like negative self-talk or perfectionism.

 

Stress can cause a myriad of symptoms in the body including feeling tired all the time, lack of energy, pain in the body (particularly the lower back), chronic fatigue, hormone imbalance, mood swings, hot flushes, aching joints, and the list goes on…

 

The way you think also has a tremendous impact on how you view and function in the world. It can impact your stress levels, your metabolism, your hormones, and even your heart health.

 

Your mind can get stuck in emotional ruts… negative habits and belief patterns of thinking that may have made sense at one time in your life but have now become outdated and lead to thoughts and actions that no longer support your well-being.

 

Signs of poor adrenal function may include the following:

  • Regularly feeling overwhelmed
  • Feeling tired despite adequate sleep
  • Difficulty getting up in the morning most days
  • Lack of energy and motivation
  • Mental fog
  • Less enjoyment in life
  • Reduced ability in decision making
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Reduced productivity
  • Poor memory
  • Decreasing ability to handle stress
  • Slowed healing
  • Mild depression
  • Alternating diarrhoea/constipation
  • Low blood sugar
  • Craving for salty foods (“I just ate a whole bag of chips syndrome”)

Do any of these sound familiar?

 

The good news is… like so much of our personal health… it is a reversible condition (with the right steps and information). Hypnotherapy is a proven first step to taking back control of your life. My “clearing the decks” stress relief hypnotherapy session creates a clearer; more focused and motivated mind state to tackle other issues that are stopping you living a more powerful and fulfilling life.

Are You Holding onto Pain?

What causes pain in our bodies? We know that knee and joint pain is a condition in which a tendon and or its ligaments become irritated and inflamed, causing pain and tenderness around a joint. The condition can occur in any of the body’s tendons, but is most common in the knees, ankles, elbows, shoulders, heels and wrists…

 

We also know that when muscles become stressed and tense they tend to tighten up, restricting movement, and can cause acute pain, even throwing other parts of the body out of balance to compensate…

 

So when we injure ourselves inflammation and swelling takes place, which is part of the body’s protective process, and the body immediately sends an emergency message to the brain (pain) that something is not right and instructs all our internal healing processes to go to work to heal the affected area.

 

But what happens when the area is healed but the pain persists… sometimes for years… and all the treatments and pain killers just don’t seem to work? So what if I suggested to you that the treatments and pain killers are not working because you are treating the symptom not the source of your pain.

 

You see the greater part of human pain is unnecessary. It has been said that it only takes only 6-8 weeks for pain to dissipate, even after a major injury… so much of the pain we experience in our bodies is not injury or surgery related… it is an emotional blockage created when our unconscious emotional mind runs its programs unchecked.

 

This type of pain is always some form of non-acceptance, some form of resistance to what is… and it stores itself as an emotional pain blockage in our bodies. So the pain in your body can be caused as a result of stress in your life… family stress, relationship stress, workplace or schoolyard stress, and environmental stress.

 

Emotional stress blockages in the body can also be caused by a traumatic event in your life that has not been resolved. The body sends a message to the brain and the brain creates pain somewhere in your body… and sometimes it moves around to get your attention. When this happens and you get treatments or pain killers… or even surgery for the pain… it doesn’t work because you are dealing with the symptom of your pain not the source.

 

THE EMOTIONAL PAIN PATH

  1. External & Internal Stress – Physical & Psychological Activity – Signals Sent to Brain
  2. Changes to Nervous System – Reduction of Blood Flow – Oxygen Deprivation
  3. Inflammation – Muscle, Nerve & Tendon Pain – Weight Gain or Weight Reduction

 

Stress and negative thoughts create emotional blockages in the body which mainly manifest as either pain or fat storage… or sometimes both… stored somewhere within the body… It can also cause weight reduction (anorexia and bulimia).

 

On the conscious thinking mind level, the resistance is some form of judgement you have made, and on the unconscious emotional mind level, it is some form of emotional negativity.

 

These manifestations of the emotional blockages, pain and fat storage, are the “symptoms” of the emotional blockage… not the source. This is why diet and exercise programs, and traditional pain treatments from a physiotherapist or chiropractor, or strong prescription drugs sometimes do not work… they are all working on the symptom… not the source, which is the psychological or emotional blockage… and they operates on an unconscious level in the emotional mind.

 

Emotional pain and stress are the main causes of physical pain and disease in the body. Emotional negativity like self-pity, depression, resentment, anger, hatred, jealousy, feelings of rejection or unworthiness can all contribute to emotional pain blockages. Many people already know from their own experience how easily and quickly an intimate relationship can turn from a source of pleasure to a source of emotional and sometimes physical pain…

 

There are two levels to your pain… the pain that you create now… and the pain from the past that still lives on in your mind and in your body. This, of course, includes the pain and/or traumas you suffered as a child. The accumulated emotional pain is a negative energy field that occupies your body and mind… and it’s very real!

 

This emotional pain blockage does not want you to observe it for what it really is… because once you observe it, and feel its energy field within you… take your attention into it… the identification has been broken… a higher dimension of consciousness has come in armed with your inner guide…

 

Your emotional blockage wants to survive just like every other entity in existence and it can only survive if it gets you to unconsciously identify with it. And when you identify with it, it rises up, takes over you, and then lives through you… by “becoming you”… but it needs to get its “food” from you…

 

It will attract and feed on that which resonates with its own kind of energy vibration… anything that creates further pain in whatever form… destructiveness, hatred, grief, sadness, emotional drama, violence, and even illness… pain can only feed on pain… pain cannot feed on joy or happiness… it finds it quite indigestible…

 

Once this emotional blockage has taken over you, you want more pain… you become a victim… or a perpetrator… you want to suffer pain… or you want to inflict pain… and sometimes both… there is really not much difference between the two…

 

The dilemma here is you are not consciously aware this battle between the conscious and unconscious mind is going on and will vehemently claim you do not want pain… but on an unconscious emotional level that is what has been happening… and if you look closely at your behaviour and thinking you will see they are designed to keep your pain persisting…

 

In order to remove persistent pain… to remove the emotional pain blockages from your body you must work on an unconscious level… and the most effective way is with hypnosis…

 

Lose the Stress-Release the Weight-Eliminate the Pain

Did you know that much of the excess weight… and many painful aliments…  we carry in our bodies are caused by repressed emotional stress? We are subjected to a barrage of emotional stresses in our lives… relationship stress, family stress, workplace stress and environmental stresses.

These emotionally stresses are repressed because they are not aligned with our self-image, and our unconscious (subconscious) mind considers these emotions as terrible and dangerous and, to protect us, represses them. This in turn, creates new neural pathways in our brain and begins a process that produces weight gain (or loss), pain and other ailments and syptoms within our bodies.

This explains why diets and exercise… while and important part of a healthy lifestyle… many times just does not work. This is because they are focusing on the symptom… not the source. The same can be said of pain in the body.

Many treatments and medications focus on the area of the pain (the symptom) but the actual underlying source is somewhere else within the body… and in most cases is tied to repressed emotions trapped within the body.

Hypnotherapy is one of the most powerful ways to tackle repressed emotions and thousands of people have had miraculous results from just one session of Hypnotherapy, shedding weight and removing pain that they have been suffering from for years.

If you are feeling overwhelmed with the stresses in your life… talk to me… Hypnotherapy may well be the answer you have been looking for…

The simple no resistance weight loss release solution works on the subconscious and emotional level, which is where the real issue with weight gain resides. The difference between you and your ideal weight has to do with your emotional survival triggers… and weight loss can be effortless when you address these triggers.

But it’s not as simple as positive thinking, affirmations or motivation because the triggers lie deep within the subconscious mind, and the subconscious mind is protected by what we like to call an “Inner Gatekeeper”, which is designed to protect you.

 

Discover The Inner Gatekeeper

 

But before you even start you need to recognise and understand precisely what and how your inner gatekeeper works, and uncover the reason it’s keeping you hostage… in both weight loss and weight gain issues.

This “Inner Gatekeeper” takes what the conscious mind is thinking or planning to do and runs it past the subconscious for approval. The problem is that the subconscious is a recording of all your past events, which are tied to emotional triggers, and will normally only give approval if it meets the recorded data.

Therefore, your current level of results, or lack of, is nothing more than a residual outcome of your past thoughts, feelings and actions. Fortunately, this has nothing to do with what you are capable of becoming or who you are capable of becoming unless you continue to make the same choices based on misaligned past events.

What worked in the past is not necessarily what will work in the present.

 

Why Past Attempts Have Failed

 

These past recordings and emotions are very helpful because you get to see that if you have been getting what you desire in life… you know you’re on your game.

When you are not getting the results you desire… that is the universe energy force reflecting back to you where you need to adjust your thoughts, feelings (emotional triggers) and point of focus. It pinpoints exactly when and where you are out of the universal vibrational flow.

So now you need never be discouraged about your less than pleasing results in your weight loss goals, and in fact all areas of your life including relationships, health and money.

Use them as a wake-up call that you are out of alignment with the vibrational flow and then use what you are learning to put yourself back into the vibrational flow and back into alignment.

At that point things MUST turn around for you… you cannot fail! Take a closer look at this exciting new breakthrough in weight loss by clicking the banner below.

 

Weight Loss Weight Gain Emotional Stress Triggers

When you look for the reason why you are struggling with weight loss you may or may not find it, but even if you do, it won’t change anything. All it will do is make you feel bad about it and at the same time add a little more anxiety and stress to your life each time you think about it, which ultimately leads to more weight gain or loss in the case of anorexia.

 

You see the trap many people fall into, once they find out “WHY” they struggle with weight-loss or weight gain, are they get to label their condition and, can opt out doing anything about it. They say things like I can’t help it because:

 

  • I am a diabetic
  • I’ve inherited a fat gene
  • I’m just naturally thin
  • I’m big-boned so am naturally over-weight
  • I have a slow metabolism so that’s why I can’t lose weight
  • I have a fast metabolism that’s why I can’t gain weight
  • I was rejected.
  • I was abused.
  • I was abandoned
  • I ………………. (fill in the blank)

 

Now while all these conditions may be true, they cannot free you. In fact they keep you trapped in a vicious circle by reinforcing your belief system that you cannot do anything about it and many of the drug companies and even support groups attest to this… but the truth is you can!

 

Recent research is showing that the reason many people cannot lose weight or gain weight (anorexia) lies in emotional stress triggers. They are carrying an emotional trigger (or triggers) that prevent them from gaining or losing weight.

 

And most people struggling with weight issues are not consciously aware of this emotional stress trigger… because it is buried deep in the subconscious mind. It could have been some event (major or minor) that happened many years ago or even in childhood and your mind created this trigger to protect you.

 

At the time when this emotional trigger was created it was the only way your subconscious mind could protect you from the threat (real or imagined) and it was the correct decision at that time. However the issue is… your subconscious correct decision made in the past is not the necessarily the right decision for today… and so now the past solution has become the present problem… and your subconscious mind, not your conscious mind, runs the show.

 

This subconscious conditioning, of solutions to past problems, which were right at the time, are the cause of new problems and blockages… in all areas of life… health, weight, relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, mental health, spiritual development… and the list goes on.

 

Many people believe that pure willpower or positive affirmations will solve their problem, and it may… for a little while… but you will soon slip back into the old patterns. This is because the subconscious mind (remember it runs the show, not your conscious mind) needs to be re-programmed, and to do this you must bypass the “inner gatekeeper” that protects it.

 

This is why positive thinking and a lot of programs like “The Biggest Loser” and “Boot Camps” tend to fail… , it wasn’t through a lack of commitment and desire to change… something was missing from the formula. They focus on the conscious mind or the physical body and are not addressing the real problem… the subconscious emotional blockage.

 

Yes exercise is an important of a healthy lifestyle but is not the be all and end all of weight loss and, if done excessively (over-exercising), can become a problem of its own… what is the emotional trigger behind over-exercising or the obsession with bulking up and poisoning the body with weight-gain supplements?

 

Most diet and weight loss programs rely on external motivation and that’s exactly why they fail… it’s not your fault… you have just being given the wrong recipe.

 

Thankfully there’s a simple weight loss or rather emotional weight release method you can learn which is designed to erase practically any dysfunctional emotional behaviour pattern. Visualise having the capability to eliminate any kind of detrimental block which is preventing you realizing what you desire in every area of your life, and living the lifestyle you always desired.

 

This approach is NOT yet another self-help techniqueit is a subconscious mind paradigm shift method that enables you to clear away the memories, encounters and self-limiting belief systems which have trapped you inside a self-defeating and self-destructing sequenceand get rid of them permanently!

 

Perhaps you have sensed that maybe you might be self-sabotaging your life but cannot comprehend exactly why? If you responded yes to the above question then this unique training course is designed for you. This is NOT a weight-loss or diet program but a emotional weight release solution.

 

  • Discover how you can release unwanted fat out of your life straight away and remove it permanently… imagine never needing to shed weight ever again!

 

  • Discover the everlasting formula that will finally end staying on a diet regime once and for all…

 

  • Expose the genuine root cause of your current lack of ability to shed weight and the reason why it’s actually not your fault…

 

We refer to this method as the zero resistance weight release solution and it works on the subconscious and emotional level, and that is the location where the genuine challenge with gaining weight exists.

 

The actual difference between you and your optimal bodyweight is related to your current emotionally charged fat survival switchit’s actually a mind body relationship.

 

The true secret to getting rid of unwanted weight resides in the psychological, emotive and spiritual stress triggers, and weight loss is usually simple and easy once you deal with these kinds of activators.

 

You need to understand precisely why these triggers keep your fat survival button on and, you must learn the way to switch those triggers off!

 

When you get this approach correct the remainder is easy and you simply won’t believe how rapidly you’re going to get positive weight loss effects.

 

Diet plans are not effective and will never ever work until this switch is off and, in order to accomplish that we have to align the subconscious and conscious minds. Absolutely no dieting will be necessary when you get this alignment right; you are going to lose weight easily, effectively and effortlessly.
