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

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...

The C Word Is Pissing Me Off. Tired Of Friends Dying From Colon, Breast and Lung Cancer.

The C Word Is Pissing Me Off. Tired Of Friends Dying From Colon, Breast and Lung Cancer.

    Have You Ever Had A Very Very Sad Bad Day? Today as I write this post I am thinking that this is one of those very very sad days.  I just turned 50 recently and honestly I don’t think that is really all that old. Apparently age really is just a number and not a saying that makes us feel good.  I found out recently that a girl I went to school with passed away from colon cancer.  Her older brother was in my graduating class.  She was a year or two younger than me in school.  She leaves behind a young child and a husband who adored her and it just breaks my heart.  Not sure if anyone else is morbid like me, but I always stop to read the local newspaper obituaries.  I don’t want to miss out on something happening to friends or family....

Baby Boomer Health & Wellness Career Path Is A Lucrative One In 2015

Baby Boomer Health & Wellness Career Path Is A Lucrative One In 2015

  Nearly 1 of every 4 people in the United States qualify as a baby boomer, almost 77 million Baby Boomers. As of 2012, Baby Boomers make up 24.3% of the total U.S. population of approximately 315,000,000.  The Boomer generation is Americans that were born between the end of World War II in 1946 and 1964.  When considering a marketing plan, it would be insane to exclude baby boomers as they are such a valuable group in the demographic. Reaching out to Baby Boomers is exactly what you should be thinking about if you want to actually have a successful business.  According to this article in CNN,  “January 1, 2011 – The very first of the boomers turns 65. Approximately two-thirds of all seniors 65 and over and 60% of those 50-64 have actually at...

I love my son.  There is no question in this world that I love him more than life itself.   There are times that I felt the struggle was more than I could bear, when I really was not sure what the next step was going to have to be.  As a mom of three boys, our autistic son being the oldest, the safety of the younger brothers was always of paramount concern.  How do you meet every child’s needs, including those with special health needs and continue to keep the rest of the family safe?  Unfortunately these are questions that families who have a loved one on the autism spectrum need to ask themselves nearly every day. In a world where 1 out of 6 children is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), this is...

Why You Should Take A Probiotic Supplement Every Day According To Dr. Gordon Pedersen

Why You Should Take A Probiotic Supplement Every Day According To Dr. Gordon Pedersen

We hear about probiotics quite often but do we really understand why we need them in the first place?  According to the article “Probiotics:  One of The Most Important Supplements You Can Take” by Dr. Mercola, probiotics are vital.  In fact, Dr. Mercola feels that “Probiotics are also essential for optimal digestion of food and absorption of nutrients, and they help your body produce vitamins, absorb minerals and aid in the elimination of toxins.” I have heard that teaching hospitals routinely give out probiotics when giving antibiotics, although most community hospitals don’t normally do this.  Keeping your gut healthy is important in staying healthy in general.  Unfortunately stomach problems, acid reflux, GERD and illnesses that...

You may have learned that it is not easy to find Twin XL sheets.  Most dorms do have twin XL mattresses.  Look for sheets and bedding now before it is slim pickings the week before the kids move...
