Do calories make you happy? If people asked me that question before, my answer would be a direct and heartfelt, “Yes!” I mean, who doesn’t become happy by buying a box of doughnuts, seeing an elegant chocolate tiramisu, or merely thinking of ice cream? At least, that’s how I used to think. I thought that all of those treats were heavenly and to die for! I was so obsessed with food that if there was a rehab for foodies, just like an alcohol rehab for alcoholics, I certainly would have been admitted there. In the past, I was someone who didn’t care what she put in her mouth. I was born fat. I grew up fat. I finished college fat. I was so used to being obese that I couldn’t imagine what I was missing in life. It was only after I was diagnosed with a fatty liver, high cholesterol, and borderline diabetes that I began to reconsider my eating choices. Eventually, I realized that I was eating to deal with my emotions, not to satisfy my bodily needs. Sometimes eating or feeling famished is not about food. We often eat when we are lonely, frustrated, sad, or angry. We [...]

It was 5 years ago when Earl (not his real name) showed up at my office a week after a workshop we had both attended. I was at the workshop on an invitation to talk about my experiences having worked as a counselor and social worker working with people struggling with drug addiction. Earl was there to get help with his addiction to alcohol. He had been a user for 8 years and had tried various rehabilitation programs with little success. In his account of the problems he was experiencing, rehab seemed to work, but fallible. Increasingly often, the medication did not help him much to beat withdrawal symptoms. He was particularly concerned about withdrawal symptoms that left him in constant pain even after taking medications prescribed by his therapist. Apart from strong occasional urges to drink, his withdrawal was causing him headaches, extremely sweaty nights, nausea, and constipation. These symptoms had left him desperate and almost resigning from rehabilitation. Was it worth receiving treatment for addiction when alcohol seemed the only option that could truly ease his suffering? Knowing the signs of dehydration, I immediately recognized the cause of Earl’s problems with recovery. He was simply not drinking enough [...]

There are many websites claiming to have juicing recipes that will effectively lighten the skin. The implication is that juicing is an effective way of gaining nutritional benefits. They claim that preparing drinks with supposedly natural skin lightening foods will naturally lighten the skin. Juicing recipes attributed to skin lighting include juices made from various fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Can Juicing Lighten the Skin? People who are interested in skin lightening often wonder if certain fruits in juice blends can be used to produce a lighter, more even complexion. The short answer to this question is yes. This does not mean that juicing will lighten the skin, though. This is primarily due to the way the body processes food and nutrients that enter the body through the dietary system and travel through the bloodstream. Once people consume these food and nutrients orally, various processes can occur and affect how quickly the nutrients travel through the system and are eliminated from it. Bodily processes also determine where those nutrients will go in the body and what they will do to it. Whereas juicing is often healthy, there is no evidence that indicates that consuming natural foods will distribute those specific benefits [...]

Motherhood is an exhausting but fulfilling job. From running around after children to keeping the house in order, there always seem to be countless tasks that all need to be accomplished now, and too little time and energy to do it. As a mom, you often strive to take care of everything and always be at the right place at the right time. But no matter how hard you try, there may be times when you feel like you’re not good enough. However, you need to remember that it’s okay to not be perfect. After all, moms are human, too. With that said, you shouldn’t ponder too long about how big of a mess your house is and how incompetent you feel you are (because you’re not) — you must act on it and initiate change instead. And, believe it or not, change can begin from the most unexpected place. One thing you can do to make your days worthwhile is to rethink your morning routines. 7 Best Morning Routines for Tired Moms Each mom has her own morning rituals to start the day.

Drinking milk has been part of our lives since we were born. We drank our mother’s breast milk to nourish our fragile, little bodies. Even when babies have transitioned to toddlerhood, some mothers continue to breastfeed as long as their “liquid gold” can be produced. In my case, I only got to breastfeed my daughter for a few months because I wasn’t able to produce enough milk. It didn’t matter how many supplements I took or breast milk-boosting foods I ate. That is why I alternately gave breast milk and formula milk to my baby and shifted permanently to the latter. Thankfully, my daughter has no milk allergies or intolerances whatsoever. Even now that she is two-going-on-three-years-old, she sometimes prefers drinking milk to eating food (but she does eat meals every day). Most of the time, however, she drinks milk and then I just find her asleep on her bed. She really does love her milk Benefits of milk Drinking milk is important to our health. Since we were kids, we have been taught to drink our milk. We have loved milk, especially when we poured it on our favorite cereals or dipped cookies in it. Our school cafeterias also [...]

We all love camping from time to time especially when the weather is ideal. There are even people who go camping several times a year since it is an enjoyable experience. While camping it is paramount to eat healthy foods that will keep you energized. This is because while camping you will participate in an assortment of activities that will require energy. There will also be a change of environment from what you are used to, and as a result, your body should be well prepared for the changes. I learned about the importance of eating healthy while camping during my first camping trip. I was just sixteen, and I did not know much about camping. The entire camping trip was to last five days, and I thought I had prepared well. Little did I know that it takes more than just carrying the essential things to eat healthily and be comfortable when camping. During this particular trip, I had brought just snacks which I thought because they do not go bad easily would sustain me for the five days. I had also carried a moderate quantity of water because I did not want to move heavy things. I had [...]

A hangover is a really awful experience that should make you promise yourself not to drink anymore, but rarely does, or at least not for long. Hangovers range from just a tad bad to something for which you could end up needing medical treatment. Sadly, many of us can so easily forget how painful and embarrassing it was that we will end up with another hangover after a friend’s birthday celebration a month from now. My first hangover experience happened when I was in middle school. I was reviewing my notes for an exam when I got curious at the sight of a bottle of my uncle’s homemade fruit wine. I remember that the bottle had some orange pieces and raisins settling at the bottom and that it smelled sweet. I got a glass and poured it a quarter full, then enjoyed another three—or four; I can’t remember—servings of a similar size. I do recall that I wasn’t able to finish my review that night and that I felt very sluggish on exam day. I completed the exam as fast as I could, so I could excuse myself from the class afterward. I ended up with a score that was [...]

How difficult was it for you to concentrate on work or spend quality time with loved ones when you were nursing a throbbing noggin? Terrible headaches and debilitating migraines might be more common than you think, but there’s a silver lining to that cloud. With so many people suffering from headaches and migraines, the medical community has developed numerous remedies that offer quick relief. For a long time, my first thought was to reach for an over-the-counter pill killer. I didn’t have time for a gym membership or a yoga class, I didn’t want to take a prescription, and everything else I was trying simply wasn’t working. Either way, something had to be done. So, I started doing some researching and I came across a simple recipe for a delicious juice that rapidly relieves migraines and headaches. Juicing got my attention because of the following reasons: It contains no drugs. It won’t interact with your medications. It’s extremely tasty. It’s easy to make. It gives your body a boost of much-needed nourishment. I was pleasantly surprised by how effective the migraine juice recipe was [...]

It’s not so easy to talk about environmental toxins. People don’t like to hear about them. The reason is they are so abundant in our environment, in our air, water, and food, that is it easier to forget about them, than to deal with them in the first place. Close your eyes and push forward no matter what, or do something about them. People often choose the first option. But you’d better do something about it. The grave truth is, the buildup of environmental toxins in the body may lead to a number chronic health conditions. And there is hardly any other solution for this problem but to ease the toxic burden. For example a lot of autoimmune diseases, even the ones not commonly known as autoimmune (arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular issues) occur when some external factors provoke action from the immune system against some part of the body. And toxins have a direct role in this. The Immune System and Environmental Toxins There is a direct impact of the environmental toxins on the immune system. The immune systems becomes imbalanced and the ability to fight bacteria, viruses, fungi and other acute infections goes down. When you reduce the levels [...]
