Chronic Fatigue ~ A Body Mind Perspective

By Michael Schwartz

File under: Alternative Therapies, Health Concerns, Supplements

I am of the belief that chronic fatigue, hypoglycemia and fibromyalgia are all interrelated. Hypoglycemia is so often misdiagnosed and not dealt with from a proper point of nutrition, it often ends up escalating into chronic fatigue.

Also, whenever there is hypoglycemia, there will almost always be Candida.  In this case, we are talking about an infestation in the intestinal tract.

Candida crowds out and may even diminish probiotics, the friendly bacteria that manufacture B vitamins.  Probiotics are Essential to healthy flora in the intestinal tract and vitamins are integral for energy production within the body.  Dwindling probiotics in the gut set the stage for the onset of chronic fatigue. …read more of Chronic Fatigue ~ A Body Mind Perspective here

Not long ago leather was synonymous with cutting-edge fashion, popular with rock stars, artists and bohemian types. Consumers these days are more aware what goes into the production of goods and the impact it can have on the environment.

Transforming animal skin into leather requires massive amounts of energy and a noxious combination of lethal chemicals. Eighty percent of the leather produced worldwide is chrome-tanned (chromium is considered hazardous by the EPA) adding to the already toxic mix of mineral salts, formaldehyde, coal-tar derivatives, oils, dyes and finishes, often cyanide-based used in the tanning process. …read more of Mechaly, Cruelty-Free Handbags, Stylish, Eco-Friendly and Affordable here

These fluffy and fabulous vegan pancakes will blow you away, but first a word about this vibrant indigo superfood…

Plump, sweet and juicy, blueberries are second only to strawberries in popularity in the U.S. and are among the most nutrient dense of all berries.

Blueberries are low in calories and rich in nutrients. A one-cup serving contains just 84 calories, 24 percent of the RDA for vitamin C, 36 percent of the RDA for vitamin K and 25 percent of the RDA for manganese.

Antioxidants are essential to optimal health, fighting free radicals, the unstable molecules that can damage DNA and cellular structures and contribute to aging and diseases like cancer.[1]

Weight Loss … Supplements and Symbology

By Michael Schwartz

Weight loss is a major topic unto itself and there are many ways to approach it. There are psychological concerns as well as physiological, glandular effects at work in most everyone with weight issues.

Levels of stress can affect weight as well. Stress depletes calcium, which disrupts the relationship between potassium and sodium and can result in five to fifteen pounds immediate weight gain through water retention.

Successful weight loss requires true desire and commitment. This leads to discipline, which in turn leads to success. The most difficult aspect of weight loss is changing the diet. Some things are hard to give up, even when we know they are detrimental to our health, primarily because of the myriad of emotional attachments and associations that we all have with food.  …read more of Weight Loss … Supplements and Symbology here

Double Your Pleasure With Delightful Apple Upside-Down Cake

By Marie Oser, Managing Editor

File under: Dessert, Entertaining, Vegan

The classic pineapple upside-down cake, glazed with pineapple rings and bright red maraschino cherries gained popularity in the early 20th century when canned pineapple was introduced. Tastes have changed over the last hundred years and canned pineapple dotted with uber adulterated maraschino cherries aren’t the kind of ingredients the health conscious cook would bake into a cake.

Upside-down style cakes can be crowned with just about any fresh fruit with delicious results. I like to use fruit that is a bit tart for the brown sugar topping and Granny Smith apples were the inspiration for this recipe. When in season, a pinwheel of nectarines, plums or fresh apricots or are all great choices and a sprinkling of blueberries is always a nice touch. …read more of Double Your Pleasure With Delightful Apple Upside-Down Cake here
