Eat Chocolate Lose Weight On The Flavanoid Rich High Antioxidant Chocolate Diet Featured In The Bariatrician American Journal Of Bariatric Medicine

I have been heavy for most of my life.  When my younger brother died unexpectedly it really caught me off guard.  After that and knowing how difficult it is for your kids and family after losing a loved one, I really started focusing on improving my health more than ever.  Part of that focus included the desire to lose weight.  I have tried pretty much every diet out there. When I was a teenager, I did not eat well at all.  My focus was on losing weight at any cost.  My answer was to drink Tab.  For those of you old enough to remember Tab, it was a diet drink similar to Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi today.  Unfortunately that is all I would eat.  I lost weight but at a much greater cost.  I started breaking bones.  You can’t eat like crap and expect for your body...

What Is This Change Your Chocolate Flavonoid Rich Change Your Life Stuff All About Anyway?

What Is This Change Your Chocolate Flavonoid Rich Change Your Life Stuff All About Anyway?

Change your chocolate? It is a phrase I have been hearing quite often lately by a Healthy Chocolate company called Xocai.  Healthy Chocolate by it’s very definition seems to be a misnomer.  I mean, honestly, we all love chocolate, but it is hardly what most would consider healthy by any stretch of the imagination.  Not so fast, apparently the candy chocolate we have been eating that has all the processed sugars and waxes may not be healthy but somehow we have been missing out.  The “Change Your Chocolate, Change Your Life” healthy chocolate campaign is starting to make sense.  You see, most people don’t realize that raw cacao or cold pressed dark chocolate can really be good for you. Yes I know, we have been hearing that dark chocolate has...

“Flavonoids Are a Natural Blood Thinner and Affect Platelets Which Can Cause Clots That Lead to Heart Attacks.” Says Cleveland Clinic About The Flavonoid Content In Dark Chocolate

“Flavonoids Are a Natural Blood Thinner and Affect Platelets Which Can Cause Clots That Lead to Heart Attacks.”  Says Cleveland Clinic About The Flavonoid Content In Dark Chocolate

I read an interesting article today about flavonoids and the fact that they are a natural blood thinner.  I was researching natural blood thinners in reference to a question I was asked about MTHFR gene defects.  Those with MTHFR defects have a problem processing folate.  Depending on which combination of MTHFR gene defects, either A1298C or C677T, your physician may decide to put you on a blood thinner.  The question I received was is Coumadin the only option available.  The person was concerned because of the side effects of taking Coumadin.  I am certainly not a physician but I can google like the best of them and came across this article from the Cleveland Clinic about dark chocolate flavonoids being a natural blood thinner.  “Many studies suggest that...

Raise Your Hand If You Have Ever Googled Medical Issues, Symptoms, Searched For A Chronic Health Issue Or Looked For A Diagnosis

Did you raise your hand? Of course you did.  You know exactly what I mean.  Either you, someone you love or someone in your family has been dealing with health issues for years and you want answers, you are concerned about health issues you or loved ones are experiencing or perhaps you are dealing with new symptoms and just want to know what is going on.  Maybe you are looking for answers or maybe you just want to be informed.  Either way the game has changed with google. I admit it.  I have been googling or researching health issues for years.  Before I could google on the internet, most of my research back in the 1990’s were studies I ordered from the library. At the time I had a son who had almost died at birth and was on ECMO, (  Extracorporeal membrane...

Has Your Family Struggled With The Effects Of Autism, Aspergers, ADHD or ADD Like Ours?

Has Your Family Struggled With The Effects Of Autism, Aspergers, ADHD or ADD Like Ours?

Saying that our family was touched by autism seems like an understatement. It feels more like we were plunged headfirst into the autism spectrum without much understanding of what was about to happen.  It started out that our son was a little slow in reaching his milestones.  Our first-born son would have a Patent Ductus Arteriosis ligation when he was 2 years old at Lutheran General, a Chicago area hospital.  He would develop unusual symptoms following the surgery including subcutaneous emphysema where it felt like his whole body was filled with rice crispies cereal under his skin.  It was so severe that he did not even resemble the same child for nearly a month.  After this experience his issues seemed to magnify. He would have episodes where he would scream in...
