Homemade Bone Broth




 

 

This broth recipe is simple and healthy,no waste! Full of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and collagen.

What is Broth?

It is a mineral rich infusion made by boiling bones of healthy animals with vegetables, herbs and spices, also a powerful health addition that you can easily add to your family’s food.Bone broths are nutrient-dense, easy to digest, rich in flavor and they boost healing.

This simmering causes the bones and ligaments to release healing compounds like collagen, proline, glycine and glutamine that have the power to transform your health.

  • Treat leaky gut syndrome – The gelatin in the bones typically used for making it (such as knuckles, feet, and other joints) is said to help seal up holes in intestines. (People who have leaky gut syndrome have porous intestinal lining.) This “patching” can help ease chronic diarrhea, constipation, and even some food intolerance’s. ( Jill Grunewald – Healthful Elements) While helping overcome food intolerance’s and allergies.
  • Boost immune system. Because of bone broth’s high concentration of minerals, Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, goes as far as to call bone broth a “superfood” that can strengthen your immune system.
  • Sleep better. Research has shown that glycogen, found in bone broth, may help improve sleep and ward off fatigue.
  • Improve joint health – The phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium in the bones seep out into the broth, leaving you to sip all those essential nutrients for your own healthy bones.
  • Reduce Cellulite – by improving connective tissue.

How to Eat Bone Broth

    • Drink it straight up. Put it in your to go cup and drink it on the way to work.
    • Freeze for later use. Pour bone broth into ice cube trays and freeze. You’ll have individually portioned at the ready.
    • Make soup or Stew. Use it as the base for any soup or stew.

Fabulous Fat Bombs

Fat Bombs are an excellent way to get a concentrated source of high-quality fats that will provide energy and even satisfy your sweet tooth! Fat bombs are the perfect antidote for sweet cravings, but without the sugar. And the magic secret? They will actually keep you full.

I love adding the pinch of Himylan salts Himalayan salt is also mined from ancient sea beds, so it is pure from modern environmental toxins. It provides a whopping 84 trace minerals. Himalayan salt benefits include supporting weight loss, detox, and balanced hormones.

One great thing about this recipe is that theres no real cooking. It’s a very simple treat to make and you’ll want to make it over and over again.

NOTE : If you increase your healthy fat  keep in mind you you MUST lower your carbs otherwise you are back on the unhealthy diet which is high fat and high carbs AND the fat you eat must be a healthy fat such as coconut oil, butter, extra virgin olive oil, avocado etc.

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 ….

Cross Crawl: Increase your Mind Power



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 the 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 known as ”supercise” it’s simple and easy to do.

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 Cerebro-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.

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
  • Saying things backwards

Fortunately, you can reprogram 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 their 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.

Check out when our next dates for “Balanced Health” are taking place where this and lots of other techniques to improve health are taught.  We also run “Taster events” for anyone who wants to find out more before they commit.

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.  Other natural thyroid support.

Living with Fibromyalgia: Kinesiology can Help

 

Living with Fibromyalgia -Kinesiology can help

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

It 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 it until them and wonder exactly what was Fibromyalgia.

How common is it?

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, it 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 it in Ireland is not known but approximately 14 million people in the EU have the syndrome and 1-3% of the global population.

It 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 the 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

It 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 defense 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.

Hear Roberta’s Story

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!

Is a low-fat diet causing you to gain weight ?



Good versus Bad – Why we all need it in our diet

We know that diet plays a big role in the health of the body, but an essential nutrient that has been demonized 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 it 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.

It is needed to build cell membranes, the vital exterior of each cell, and the sheaths surrounding nerves. It is essential for blood clotting, muscle movement, and inflammation. For long-term health, some fats are better than others. Good fats include monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Bad ones include industrial-made trans fats. Saturated ones fall somewhere in the middle.

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats  are known as the “good fats” because they are good for your heart, your cholesterol, and your overall health. These can help to:

  • Lower the risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • Lower bad LDL cholesterol levels, while increasing good HDL.
  • Prevent abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Lower triglycerides associated with heart disease and fight inflammation.
  • Lower blood pressure.
  • Prevent atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of the arteries).

Adding more of these healthy fats to your diet may also help to make you feel more satisfied after a meal, reducing hunger and thus promoting weight loss.

  • Avocados
  • Olives
  • Nuts (almonds, peanuts, macadamia, hazelnuts, pecans, cashews)
  • Sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds
  • Fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout, sardines)

Bad fats

The worst type of dietary fat is the kind known as trans fat. It is a byproduct of a process called hydrogenation that is used to turn healthy oils into solids and to prevent them from becoming rancid. When vegetable oil is heated in the presence of hydrogen and a heavy-metal catalyst such as palladium, hydrogen atoms are added to the carbon chain. This turns oils into solids. It also makes healthy vegetable oils more like not-so-healthy saturated fats. On food label ingredient lists, this manufactured substance is typically listed as “partially hydrogenated oil.” (www.health.harvard.edu)

Examples of bad ones – (Trans fat )

  • Cookies, cakes, pizza dough, chips
  • Stick margarine, vegetable shortening
  • Fried foods – fried chicken, chicken nuggets, breaded fish
  • Anything containing hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, even if it claims to be “trans fat-free”

Saturated fat. While not as harmful as trans fat, saturated fat can raise bad LDL cholesterol and too much can negatively impact heart health, so it’s best consumed in moderation. Experts recommend limiting it to 10% of your daily calories.

Saturated fat – primary sources include:

  • Red meat (beef, lamb, pork)
  • Whole dairy products (milk, cream, cheese)
  • Butter, Ice cream
  • Lard
  • Tropical oils such as coconut and palm oil

If you eat carbohydrates, you body floods your bloodstream with insulin. So eating more carbohydrates means less time in fat burning mode. Which means more fat accumulation in the fat cells. Then this means feeling hungrier and weight gain. Eating more fat and fewer carbohydrates means fat will burn quicker, you are less hungry, and more likely to lose weight.

Your diet determines how much insulin your body will produce over time. From the documentary “Fat Head.”

We think by simply eating healthy carbs, ( in small amounts) lean protein, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Avoid processed foods that contain trans and saturated fats.

Remember not all ones are bad, and there are healthy ones that are essential to a balanced diet. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends healthy Americans, over age 2, eat between 25 and 35 percent of your total daily calories as fats from healthy sources like nuts, fish and oils.

Health Show Episode #12 – Helping anxious children



Helping Anxious children and teenagers at School

If you are a parent, aunt, uncle, teacher or carer of kids, this month’s Health Show is a must watch.

Going back to school can be stressful at the best of times. But with anxiety, and learning difficulties on the rise (up to a third of students), it can be a very tough time for kids and for parents doing their best to get them out the door.  One of our KinesiologyZone Diploma graduates, Paula Phillips, helped four kids who wanted to improve their exam results, as part of her research study that she undertook during her Systematic Kinesiology training.  Anxious kidsAs exam results are measurable, she was able to see how Kinesiology’s holistic interventions made a difference.  Listen to Paula tell you about the results these kids and the one adult who also benefitted!

Children are faced with lots of stresses in life today and often children are unable to express their true emotions and feelings. Communicating how they are feeling is sometimes also difficult. They do however have the ability to accept change and move with this fairly easily. It is this reason that Systematic Kinesiology has such wonderful and powerful effects on children.

Watch and learn how children have gone from being unable to complete maths homework or reading to being happy children, much more confident and even motivated students.  And who doesn’t want that!

Paula really believes ‘‘ Transform your beliefs = Transform your life”

You can learn the techniques and approaches to help kids that Paula used in her research can be learned on our Balanced Health programme.  They are simple and powerful to use on yourself and to help kids struggling with reading, writing, and comprehension.

If you want to make an appointment with Paula you can email her on [email protected]

To make an appointment with another Systematic Kinesiologist you can find a list on the Association’s website here –  http://kinesiology.ie/practitioners/

Anxious kids helped with Systematic Kinesiology


Next month’s live recording of the KinesiologyZone Health Show will be on 18th October at 12.30 as usual.  We will be covering ”Thyroid Issues” and how Systematic Kinesiology can help you.

The Benefits of Rebounding for 5 minutes




What is rebounding ?….The typical rebound mini-trampoline is about 3′ in diameter and 9″ high. It is safe, easy to use, and effective. Research has led some scientists to conclude that jumping on a mini-trampoline is possibly the most effective exercise yet devised by man, especially because of the effect rebounding has on the lymph in the body.

Have you ever looked out the kitchen window and see the kids bouncing on the trampoline and think that looks fun… well it is it and it is so good for you. So next time take a few minutes and jump on the trampoline and feel the benefits in your body.

The human body needs to move. The lymph system bathes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. Contrary to blood which is pumped by the heart, the lymph is totally dependent on physical exercise to move. Without adequate movement, the cells are left stewing in their own waste products and starving for nutrients, a situation which contributes to arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases as well as ageing. Vigorous exercise such as rebounding is reported to increase lymph flow by 15 to 30 times.

All the Neuro-Lymphatic points stimulate by energy reflexes the flow of lymph to the related muscle and organ. There is twice as much lymph as blood in the body. It is a non-cellular fluid. It permeates the tissue where blood cells that are imprisoned in capillaries cannot go since there are too large. The lymph feeds and cleans the bodies tissues.

Lymph vessels can become clogged with protein deposits or the flow can stagnate or even stop for reasons such as fatigue, stress, infection, emotional shock, lack of physical activity or dehydration. Toxins accumulate, cells are unable to function properly resulting in various metabolic and infectious problems.

All cells in the body become stronger in response to the increased “G force” during rebounding. Vertical motion workouts such as rebounding are much different and much more beneficial and efficient than horizontal motion workouts, such as jogging or running.

When you bounce on a rebounder (mini-trampoline), several actions happen:

  • An acceleration action as you bounce upward
  • A split-second weightless pause at the top
  • A deceleration at an increased G-force

These immune cells are responsible for eating viruses, bacteria and even cancer cells, so it is good that they be active. Jumping on a mini-trampoline directly strengthens the immune system, so it’s a big deal!

Safety

Everyone should start with the gentle bounce let your feet remain with the mat while the body moves up and down. The health bounce is sufficient to obtain all the benefits of rebounding while gently strengthening the entire body. You can sit chat on the phone,  put in your earbuds and listen to music. It is recommended that you do your rebounding with bare feet so you do not slip. Do not wear tight or constricting clothes. The more jiggling, the more your lymph system is flushing out those toxins!

Start with 5 minutes of rebounding and increase their time as their fitness level improves. Seniors can start with 2 minutes several times per day, with at least 30 minutes between rebounding sessions. Increase your rebounding time gradually.

Inactive seniors find that gently jumping on a mini-trampoline gives them renewed vigor and zest for life. Hyperactive children are reported to calm down after a few days of rebounding.  Everyone  can do this and people can use the rebound mini-trampoline whenever they have a few minutes during the day.

Just some of the Benefits

  • Boosts lymphatic drainage and immune function
  • Great for skeletal system and increasing bone mass
  • Helps improve digestion
  • Rebounding helps circulate oxygen throughout the body to increase energy.
  • Rebounding in a whole body exercise that improves muscle tone throughout the body.
  • Some sources claim that the unique motion of rebounding can also help support the thyroid and adrenals.
  • Rebounding is fun!

The Health Show Episode #11 – Sugar Insulin and Diabetes

The Health Show Episode #11 – Sugar Insulin and Diabetes

Sugar Insulin and Diabetes – How understanding blood sugar, insulin, insulin resistance, macro nutrients, supplements, essential fats and reading labels will help you prevent diabetes!  There’s a LOT in this month’s Health Show!

Sugar Insulin and Diabetes KinesiologyZone Health Show Episode 11 Sugar

For every expert recommending some new health fix, there’s someone else telling you to try the opposite. But something we are all on the same page about is sugar – specifically, added sugar, that is doing us more harm than good.  But overall our love of carbohydrates is making us fatter, more tired, and less happy!

While we all know we should consume sugar “in moderation,” it’s easier said than done, especially when it is found in foods as added, and often hidden, ingredients.  The WHO (World Health organisation) recently published guidelines on sugar intake for adults and children saying that no more than 10% of a person’s energy intake (calories) should come from free sugars. In Ireland, the National Adult Nutritional Survey in 2011 showed that on average our diets contained 14.6% energy from free sugars.

Watch Siobhan Guthrie’s overview and introduction to this big topic – about our nutritional needs, proteins, essential fats, carbohydrates and what to do to keep our insulin levels low, which will prevent many long term health conditions

[jwplayer player=”4″ mediaid=”6731″]

 

Sugar Insulin and Diabetes KinesiologyZone Health Show Episode 11

In today’s Health Show we offer practical tips on helping get the focus away from carbohydrates (such as sugar) and onto proteins and essential fats into the diet, so that you feel satiated, have more energy and long term good health.

Symptoms of blood sugar imbalance:

  • Tiredness, ratty, stressed, HUNGRY all the time,
  • Prone to infection (especially your teeth and gum disease)
  • significant health problems because it’s associated with obesity, heart attacks, polycystic ovarian syndrome, cancer and other serious conditions.

INSULIN – a hormone that is secreted by the pancreas in response to the foods you eat.

Health Tips:

– Add oily fish into your diet
– Use Avocados – great for adding essential fats into your salad
– Hummus – This middle eastern snack is high in protein!
– Beans -Most beans have about 7-10 grams of protein per half cup
– UDOs Oil has the perfect blend of Omega 3/6/9.

Become sugar smart

Understanding food labels is a great tool in becoming sugar smart. Added sugars can come under many different names and are listed to disguise how much sugar is in the “food product”:

• Corn syrup, Golden syrup, Maple syrup.
• Honey, Malt syrup, molasses

• Glucose (twice as sweet as fructose)
• Fructose
• Sucrose
• Maltose
• Dextrose
• Galactose
• Lactose
• High fructose corn syrup
• Invert sugar
• Hydrolysed starch

And the list goes on!  Dextrin, Maltodextrin, Barley malt, Beet sugar, Date sugar, Diatase, Fruit juice, Fruit juice concentrate, Dehydrated fruit juice, Fruit juice crystals, and Agave.

Supplements to help reverse Insulin Resistance and help with sweet cravings

If you are interested in getting some chromium, zinc, magnesium or other supplements to help balance your blood sugar you will find the ones Siobhan recommended by visiting this site. https://www.pharmanord.com/ or from your local Systematic Kinesiologist.

 


Our next Health Show- episode #12 will take place on the 20th September and with kids heading back to school we will be discussing ”Children and young adolescents achieve their potential academically in today’s world”
