Boost your Health with Apple Cider Vinegar

 

Boost your Health with Apple Cider Vinegar

There is tons of stuff on the internet about apple cider vinegar and alot of conflicting information so we wanted to keep it simple. We know people just want practical ways to get healthier and simple ways to feel better.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is an age-old ingredient for healthy living. Drinking it can bring a number of health benefits. Apple cider vinegar is loaded with 17 amino acids, vitamins like potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus and minerals like B1, B6, and B12

Apple cider vinegar is an apple cider that’s been fermented. The sugar allows the fermentation process  to start allowing the sugar to turn into something called an organic acid. That organic acid levels the pH within your body.

High levels of stress, poor sleep, processed foods, too much coffee and alcohol can all make the body too acidic. The body starts to use its valuable minerals such as calcium, iodine, and magnesium to bring pH back into balance. If you are suffering from heartburn, poor digestion, headaches,poor bone health high blood pressure, low thyroid,  insomnia, muscle cramps, tiredness, weight gain—and poor skin, maybe your PH is out of Balance. That’s why adding apple cider vinegar can offer benefits to your Health balancing your PH levels.

Apple Cider Vinegar helping Diabetes

A study published in Diabetes Care looked at men and women with type 2 diabetes. The researchers found that when the participants downed two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before bed with a snack (one ounce of cheese), they had lower blood sugar levels the next morning, compared to when they ate the same bedtime snack paired with two tablespoons of water.

Whole-wheat bread and other ‘healthy’ foods diet experts avoid. Another study published in the same journal compared the effects of apple cider vinegar on healthy adults, people with pre-diabetes, and people with type 2 diabetes.

Study participants in all three groups had better blood glucose readings when they consumed less than an ounce of apple cider vinegar with a high-carb meal (a white bagel with butter and orange juice), compared to when they the had the same meal and drank a placebo.

People with pre-diabetes improved their blood glucose levels with vinegar by nearly half, while people with diabetes cut their blood glucose concentrations by 25%. – www.cnn.com

Which brand of ACV is best?

There is no right or wrong answer to this question. It should be made from cider or apple juice and should have a pale to medium amber color. Pretty much any brand will do: Bragg and Heinz are two of the better-known ones.

If you want to experiment with drinking vinegar to soak up any of the benefits listed above, the safest and most effective way is to add 1 to 2 tablespoons of vinegar to one glass of water and drink it on an empty stomach immediately before eating. Don’t even think about drinking it undiluted. Mkae sure to dilute 1 tablespoon in at least 1 cup of water. Your esophagus isn’t designed to withstand all the acidity. Some people like to add lemon or cinnmon to their mixture.

Don’t overdo it, as you can see the benefits with one tablespoon, and significant effects with two, but there’s never a time when more than that is better.

Protect your tooth enamel with baking soda.
It’s not a bad idea to brush your teeth immediately before and after you drink ACV. Alternatively, rinse your mouth with a mixture of water and baking soda, which will counteract the acidity in your mouth and protect your teeth.

'Anecdotal remedies might have some merit — if it's been around for centuries, it's probably working,' says Carol Johnston, PhD, a registered dietitian Click To Tweet

Adrenal Recovery Soup

Adrenal Recovery Soup – Our Adrenal glands may be tiny, but they have powerful abilities to affect how we feel each day and how we manage what comes our way in life. You may have heard of the terms, “adrenal burn-out” or “adrenal fatigue” which mean that the glands have been exhausted beyond their daily duties.

A diet high in stress-inducing chemicals, sugars and certain other properties directly affect your glands. They can disrupt your sleep, hormone function, and your weight and mood.

When you are not feeling your best the food choices you make become even more important to your health. Especially when your adrenals respond to stress your cell metabolism speeds up, burning many more nutrients normally needed. With adrenal fatigue, the cells have used up much of the body’s stored nutrients, creating a nutritional void. Good healthy food is the best source for replenishing these nutrients. 
So something you can do right now to improve your diet and support your adrenals is start adding in our ‘Adrenal Recovery Soup’.
If you are suffering from fatigue, when you eat is very important. By eating healthy food at frequent and regular intervals. This can help avoid low blood sugar and make a difference in your adrenal health and energy levels.

Adrenal Fatigue Diet Tips

  • Eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking – don’t leave it too long to get your cortisol levels into gear.
  • Don’t skip meals especially breakfast – you need to get your blood sugars up at the beginning of the day.
  • Don’t wait too long to eat meals with adrenal fatigue, the body has a difficult time storing energy, to eat smaller meals at regular intervals.
Make this delicious recovery soup recipe for a healthy recovery from adrenal fatigue. A 100% healthy choice to assist with recovery. A vegetable soup proved helpful in restoring adrenal function. Plus it’s low-cal, packed with vitamins and healthy.

Zinc Deficiency Symptoms and the Best Food Sources

 

Zinc Deficiency Symptoms and the Best Food Sources

Zinc is an important trace mineral which is useful in the body in many ways. It is essential for cell division & aids normal growth & development during pregnancy, childhood and adolescence.
Zinc deficiency is indeed something you should be concerned about especially if your body is already showing some warning signs of the condition.

Key facts on zinc

  • It is an important aspect of nutrition.
  • Deficiency can occur if there is not a high enough consumption from diet or supplementation.
  • Deficiency in children can lead to growth problems and increased risk of infection.
  • During pregnancy and lactation, women may need extra.

Some people use zinc for an eye disease called macular degeneration, for night blindness, and for cataracts. It is also used for asthma; diabetes; high blood pressure; acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS); and skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne.

Other uses include treating attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), blunted sense of taste (hypogeusia), ringing in the ears (tinnitus), severe head injuries, Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome, Hansen’s disease, ulcerative colitis, peptic ulcers and promoting weight gain in people with eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa.

Some people use zinc for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), male infertility, erectile dysfunction (ED), weak bones (osteoporosis), rheumatoid arthritis, and muscle cramps associated with liver disease. It is also used for sickle cell disease and inherited disorders such as acrodermatitis enteropathica, thalassemia, and Wilson’s disease.

Some athletes use zinc for improving athletic performance and strength.

Zinc is also applied to the skin for treating acne, aging skin, herpes simplex infections, and to speed wound healing.

There is a zinc preparation that can be sprayed in the nostrils for treating the common cold.

Zinc sulfate is used in products for eye irritation.

Zinc citrate is used in toothpaste and mouthwash to prevent dental plaque formation and gingivitis.

Kinesiology can muscle test, to find out if there a deficiency in a particular nutrient, and determine is it necessarily to take more nutritional supplements. It could simply be that the body is out of balance, and not working at peak efficiency.

Nutritional deficiencies and excesses change from all the time, depending on the person’s lifestyle and condition.

Often people get nutritional deficiencies because they are consuming too many toxins, and the body has to use up what good nutrition it does get in getting rid of them. By visiting a Kinesiologist you can get tested for toxins and metals.

Supplements are available in the form of capsules and tablets. However, the tolerable upper limit for zinc is 40 milligrams for males and females over 18 years.

It has been proven isolating certain nutrients in supplement form will not provide the same health benefits as consuming the nutrient from a whole food. First focus on obtaining your daily zinc requirement from foods, then use supplements as a backup if necessary.

If you would like to get tested, visit a Kinesiologist in your area. The website has a list of practitioners nationwide – http://kinesiology.ie/.

New Year – Make it the best one yet.

With the New Year comes the opportunity for a fresh start, we can turn January into an exciting new beginning. We put together our top tips and what we do to help achieve your goals …..

Makes small changes to your diet – Start slow/make changes over time. Trying to make your diet healthy overnight isn’t realistic or smart. Changing everything at once usually leads to cheating or giving up on your new eating plan. As your small changes become habit, you can continue to add more healthy choices to your diet.

By just adding Ginger to your daily diet it can make a significant different .

• If you are exercising and feel the soreness it may reduce muscle pain and soreness
• Ginger May Drastically Lower Blood Sugars and Improve Heart Disease Risk Factors
• Ginger Can Help Treat Chronic Indigestion
• Ginger May Lower Cholesterol Levels
• Cold and Flu Prevention. Ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural treatment for colds and flu around Asia.

Fitness Goals – “Dear Santa, This year please give me a big fat bank account and a slim body. Please don’t mix those two up like you did last year.” Didn’t we all see this floating around before Christmas on social media. Plenty of us made healthy New Year’s resolutions for 2016 — “I will finally lose those 10 pounds,” “I will fit in my old jeans,” “I’m giving up carbs.” Yes, setting goals may be the first step to achieving them, but why do we almost always find ourselves back in our old routines, making the same exact resolutions over and over again every year?
Simple steps to help you really achieve your fitness goals this year . Set small, reasonable goals It’s easy to set unrealistic goals with the motivation boost we get on January 1st. Two weeks in and still way too far from reaching our goal, we start finding excuses not to go to the gym, or worse, completely give up and binge on biscuits. Set a series of smaller, more realistic goals that act as stepping stones. You are more likely to achieve specific and reasonable goals like “I will lose 1 pound this week,” or “I will walk 10,000 steps today,” than “I will lose 20 pounds,” or “I will run a marathon.” Start small and take it slow, it will pay off in the end.

Do something you actually like – I have started the Keto diet and some other staff members have taken up running. Hate squats ? Then don’t do them! Exercise is supposed to be fun and make you feel good about yourself, not the other way around. Try a new class or ask your friends what they like doing. Experiment to find the best fit.

Portion control – As boring as it sounds, portion control is still an effective way to cut down on calories without the pain of letting go of your favourite foods. Let’s be honest, none of us will be giving up our guilty pleasures for a whole year.

Drink Water – By simply increase you water intake can make a huge difference. Our digestive system needs water to function properly. Waste is flushed out in the form of urine and sweat. If we don’t drink water, we don’t flush out waste and it collects in our body causing a myriad of problems. Also combined with fiber, water can cure constipation. Make your skin glow. Our skin is the largest organ in our body. Regular and plentiful water consumption can improve the colour and texture of your skin by keeping it building new cells properly. Drinking water also helps the skin do its job of regulating the body’s temperature through sweating. It can even improve your mood. Research says dehydration can affect your mood and make you grumpy and confused. Think clearer and be happier by drinking more water. Make this a new addition to your daily routine in he New Year,

Get to Bed on time
Are you a bedtime procrastinator? failing to go to bed at the intended time. Yes, how many times have you not gone to bed when you said you would even though there was no outside influence or circumstances stopping you from doing so (only yourself)? It is not so much not wanting to sleep, but rather, not wanting to stop what you are doing. You lose track of time looking at your smart phone, tablet, watching TV, or even doing chores, even though you will regret it in the morning. 
Sleep is very important for your body to recharge and heal itself. People actually sleep better when they are well rested rather than when over tired.

If you’re looking for the ideal time to turn the lights off, it’s 10.30pm. This comes form Traditional Chinese Medicine. Every meridian system which is connected to an internal organ has a two our window of focus time.Chinese Medicine practitioners use this clock to help them determine the organ responsible for disease. For example, if you find yourself waking up between the hours of 3-5am each morning, you may have underlying grief or sadness that is bothering you or you may have a condition in the lung area.

If feelings of anger or resentment arise, you may feel them strongest during the time of the Liver which is 1-3am or perhaps if you experience back pain at the end of your working day, you could have pent up emotions of fear, or perhaps even Kidney issues.

Most adults need between 7 to 9 hours per night. Women actually need 1 hour extra than men!!

Say ‘Yes’ to new opportunities – It is important that you need to respect your future self enough and create a plan. Look at some new training, research taking a careen break or changing career if you are not happy . Here at Kinesiology Zone we are offering new students a huge discount on our Spring Training Course . To find our more visit kinesiologyzone.com/training

Happiness Jar
Resolutions are a good concept, but suffer from mostly poor follow-through on the behalf of the majority. I think we all can agree that resolutions are pretty tricky to stick to . . . especially for an entire 365 days and beyond.
Which is why Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert’s revised resolution idea of a happiness jar is a great idea.The best part? It’s incredibly easy. Write down the day’s happiest moment on a slip of paper and put it in a jar (or any sort of container, really). It literally takes 60 seconds or less, and you’re pretty much guaranteed not to fail.

We want to hear your ideas and tips and feel free to comment below ….

The Cross Crawl: Increase your Mind Power

Cross Crawl is one of the first techniques learnt on a Kinesiology course, and it is so very powerful.

Did you know..that cross-crawl technique is one of the easiest ways to activate your brain development and nervous system. It gives the proper motor and sensory stimuli it needs to take control of your bodily functions thereby preventing or rehabilitating health problems. Often knows as the ”supercise”.

It is essentially an exaggerated walk which facilitates the crossover of energy between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. The brain is bathed in Cerenro-Spinal Fluid or C.S.F for short. Stimulating the flow of the vital C.S.F yields great benefits. A list of some of the real advantages of using this exercise can be seen below.

You can use it regularly to both discharge and recharge your attention and energy. It’s a great break from over focusing and it works just as well to bring body and mind online.

Signs that your cross-pattern movements could use some sharpening include:

  • Lack of coordination and balance
  • Difficulty reading
  • Exhibiting learning disabilities, such as dyslexia
  • Clumsiness
  • Stuttering
  • Saying things backwards

Fortunately, you can reprogram your nervous system and strengthen the connection between the right and left sides of your brain using cross-crawl exercises. Remember, nerves are very much alive and willing to learn new things.

How Do You Cross Crawl?

When you Watch someone do her first Cross Crawl the first thing you will notice is the person will begin to smile!

Stand with your feet apart and your arms open parallel to the ground. Shift your weight to your right foot, lift your left knee and touch it with your right hand.  Step back to both feet and immediately shift weight to on your left foot as you lift your right knee and touch it with your left hand. Repeat this several times in a comfortable, upbeat, rhythmic way.Breathe fully and enjoy.

The Cross Crawl movements should be performed very slowly. When the exercise is done slowly, it requires more fine motor involvement and balance, consciously activating the vestibular system and the frontal lobes.

 

Anyone who wants to find out even more about potentially life changing techniques to boost the health and well-being of you and your family,you may like to consider investing in some Kinesiology Training.

Our next course starts in Spring. We have Taster events coming up for anyone who wants to find out more before they commit:  www.Kinesiologyzone.com/booknow

Health Show Episode #13– Steps to Take to Help Your Thyroid

Health Show Episode #13– Steps to Take to help your Thyroid

Thyroid disorders are on the rise, and is a serious problem that’s causing so many health complications. Because millions of people around the world are suffering, we decided to highlight this topic and was the theme of this month’s Health Show. But since we would look at the problem as a symptom, and not necessarily the source of the problem, we wanted to showcase our approach to finding the underlying cause(s) using our whole person approach.  

A bit of background about the Thyroid

The Thyroid gland is one organ found in the “Endocrine  System”. This system of glands works together to regulate body temperature, metabolism, sleep, reproduction, mood, growth and development. The other glands are the pituitary, parathyroid, adrenal glands, pancreas, ovaries/testicles.

In this Health Show you will learn that it is totally possible for you to take good care of your thyroid health.  It is a HUGE topic and while we covered a lot in episode #13 of the Health Show, it can’t compete with getting to the root of your own issues by visiting a practitioner.

Types of Thyroid Conditions

Your thyroid can either be functioning normally, or if not it can either by Hypo-(low), or Hyper-thyroid (high), and when they get chronic enough, you can be diagnosed with either Hashimotos (a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid) or Graves Disease (also a condition in which your immune system attacks your thyroid).  The usual treatment is either surgery or medication to treat the symptoms and to normalise the blood readings of the thyroid hormones.  Both men and women can have an underactive thyroid. However, it’s more common in women.

However, in the Systematic Kinesiology when organs are in trouble we look at that as being a useful signal. BUT we also have to be mindful that often – where it IS it ISNT, in that we want to understand WHY the thyroid isn’t functioning properly, and the blame is often not the thyroid at all.  Testing through Systematic Kinesiology we can identify imbalances before they become a chronic problem.

Common Symptoms

Fatigue
Weight gain
Depression
Slow wound healing
Itchy dry skin
Hair falling out
Loss of outer eyebrows
Very sensitive to cold weather
Constipation
Crying easily
As well as the regulation of the menstrual cycle

In this Health Show Siobhan Guthrie demonstrates how we can test for low thyroid, the factors to take into consideration, and talks about the Steps to Help Restore Function

Factors to consider when approaching health from a Whole Person and lifestyle perspective:

M – Mental realm: emotional stresses
C – Chemical realm: toxins in the environment, food sensitivities
P – Physical realm: whiplash and other structural problems
E – Energy realm: energetic blocks.

 

Here are some of the vitamins/minerals and foods that can help you keep your thyroid health in good condition

B Vitamins – Apart from helping you with your mood health, energy levels, and metabolism, B vitamins can also help you improve your thyroid health. Some of the most common plant-based sources of B vitamins are avocados, broccoli, sweet potatoes, nuts, seeds, coconut, beans, legumes, and whole grains.

Vitamin D – particularly useful for people who have auto-immune problems as lots of studies link auto immune problems to Vit D deficiency. It also plays an essential part in your mood, bone, blood sugar/diabetes, heart, and muscle pain. Since Vitamin D is primarily obtained from the sun, the best way to get it is to be exposed to sunlight for about 15 minutes every day it is not always that easy in Ireland so consider taking a supplement.

Selenium – Apart from being vital to your skin and hair, selenium is also good for your thyroid health. The best source of plant-based selenium is the Brazil nut.

Glutamine – particularly useful if you suspect digestive or even leaky gut issues.

If you have blood sugar issues, then Chromium and Magnesium and Zinc may be indicated.   Zinc if low can impact on the production of T3, a thyroid hormone.

Iodine – You’ve likely heard that iodine is good for the thyroid.  However, since it’s a micronutrient you don’t need very much, and since it is possible to get from our diet, may not be a factor in your thyroid issues.  Eating seafood is a good dietary source of iodine.


To make an appointment with a Systematic Kinesiologist to get tested to best support your Thyroid and treating the underlying causes, you can find a list on the Association’s website

Next month’s live recording of the KinesiologyZone Health Show will be on 15th November at 12.30 as usual.  We will be covering ”Sleep Problems” and how Systematic Kinesiology can help you.

If you have any comments or want to share the success you have had using these techniques please post below.

Living with Fibromyalgia: Kinesiology can Help

Fibromyalgia, also called fibromyalgia syndrome, is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body.

The name fibromyalgia comes from three Latin words:

  • ‘fibro’ meaning fibrous tissues, such as tendons (tissue that connects muscles to bones) and ligaments (tissue that connects bones to bones)
  • ‘my’ meaning muscles
  • ‘algia’ meaning pain

Earlier this month, Lady Gaga announced the cancellation of the upcoming leg of her world tour due to her ongoing battle with fibromyalgia syndrome alot of people had never heard of Fibromyalgia until them and wonder exactly what was Fibromyalgia.

How common is fibromyalgia?

The number of people who suffer from fibromyalgia in Ireland is not known but approximately 14 million people in the EU have the syndrome and 1-3% of the global population. In most cases, fibromyalgia occurs between 30 and 60 years of age, but it can develop in people of any age, including children and the elderly.

The number of people who suffer from fibromyalgia in Ireland is not known but approximately 14 million people in the EU have the syndrome and 1-3% of the global population.

Fibromyalgia can be a difficult condition to diagnose because there is no specific test and the symptoms can be similar to those of other conditions.

Many people with fibromyalgia syndrome may have:

Pain and tender points
Fatigue
Sleep problems
Concentration and memory problems, known as “fibro fog”
Anxiety or depression
Morning stiffness
Numbness, and tingling in hands, arms, feet, and legs
Headaches
Irritable bowel syndrome
Problems with peeing
Painful menstrual cramps
Pain and Tender Points

Almost all people with fibromyalgia ache all over. It can feel similar to osteoarthritis, bursitis, and tendinitis, but it’s over your entire body. This is usually what makes you go see your doctor.
https://www.webmd.com/fibromyalgia/guide/fibromyalgia-symptoms#1

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition which can be treated multi dimensionally. There is a clear physical component and chemical component that Kinesiology can address, the first line of defence is to decrease pain then to address the cause, and Applied Kinesiology can pinpoint exactly what nutrients and herbs will be effective for you. Lastly fibromyalgia is almost an emotional component. Kinesiology can identify the stress and where it is coming from in your life.

Roberta joined our course last year and just recently spoke publicly about her struggles with Fibromyalgia and how Kinesiology has helped her come off her medication. Hear her powerful story here.

You can make an appointment with Roberta or connect through her facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/rbholistictherapies/

Wellness is vital in fibromyalgia, and Kinesiology can give you tools to be willing to take care of your mind and body with education. Because when you are willing – anything is possible!

Good verus Bad – Why we all need Fat in our diet

 

We know that diet plays a big role in the health of the body, but an essential nutrient that has been demonised for the past 50 years or so is fat.Low-fat foods have been recommended to be healthy, yet long term chronic health issues are on the rise which are much nastier than the acute health issues from the past.

By eliminating fat from the diet and replacing it with sugar and artificial sweeteners has not made us healthier; yet society in general relies on sugar and carbohydrates for energy and continue to struggle without essential nutrients.

If you’re interested in learning more about the role of fat and want to help your clients get healthy, lose weight and improve their lives, then this two day workshop is a must. With obesity and weight related illness rising year on year worldwide, Alison Astill-Smith will delve into this significant subject.You’ll gain an understanding of the biology of body fat and fat loss during this two day workshop. Understand ketosis, the nutrients that support fat loss and how to help clients lose weight. Carrying too much fat is more often a problem with hormones not will power and Alison will teach a protocol to bring a client back to normal fat function and metabolism.

You’ll also learn the harmful effect of excessive fructose on the body, how this switches the client into fat gain, and how to reverse this. This will not only impact your clients weight issues, but you’ll be able to help those worried about alzheimers, dementia and early cognitive decline, as fat plays an important role here too.

If you’ve ever been confused about fat, known instinctively that not all fats are as bad as we’re lead to believe, and want to educate your clients, join us on this exciting workshop on 4-5 November at CityNorth hotel.

This is open to all who have muscle testing skills.

If you’d like to attend then please secure your place with a €49 deposit.

For all the details and what topics will be covered, read more on the website:
