Fibromyalgia and Coffee Do They Have Any Relation?

 

If you have chronic pain, stiffness, acidity, insomnia, nervous disorders or digestive problems, you should read this article.

We live in the times when the use of coffee has become a habit in more than 80% of the world of people.

Coffee is one of the most commercialized drinks in the world and most people take it without knowing its consequences for health and especially for people with Fibromyalgia.

Next, I want to explain how coffee affects your health in an undesirable way.

Lately the coffee that is used in most countries, is transgenic.

A transgenic product (genetically modified) is a tremendously toxic product for your cellulars, because it changes your genetics and this is related to all the chronic imbalances.

A part coffee is a product that produces an excess of acidity in your body (not only speak of the stomach). With coffee your PH becomes acid and your defenses use the minerals of your bones to balance this acidity (minerals are alkaline).

Because of this theft of minerals from your bones, there is a deficiency of minerals in both bones and joints and this, of course, you feel pain and stiffness.

Besides, the acidity generated by coffee generates inflammation and where there is pain, there is inflammation and where there is inflammation, there is pain.

Coffee blocks some digestive enzymes and makes digestion more difficult.
When digestion becomes incomplete, putrefaction and fermentation occurs in your intestine and as a result your intestine becomes more prone to infections by fungi, parasites and bacteria.

Coffee for caffeine excites your nervous system, but without giving you any valuable nutrients in return. That is as if when you have instead of eating something, you take a pill that takes away your appetite.

Coffe depletes your reserves of vital nutrients and your organism and the nervous system are altered chronically.

Coffee for caffeine and the deficiency of nutrients that causes, creates nervous imbalance that affects your sleep.

The body is renewed and repaired while we sleep. According to the scientists, an insufficient sleep causes the body not to repair itself, does not detoxify and thus accelerates cellular aging and the defenses go down.

Now surely you think you could have decaffeinated coffee. Well let me tell you that decaffeinated coffee is a product that undergoes a chemical alteration process that in the long run can be worse than normal coffee.

The decaffeinated coffee is a substance even more altered and foreign to the body and its harmful effects we will know in a few years.

If you have symptoms of Fibromyalgia, you should already opt for a much healthier way of life and stay away from all the substances not compatible with your body.

The gift of health is something we have to take care of and pamper, when you stop doing it, you approach the disease.

Curious To Try A Plant-Based Diet?

If you’ve been considering making a change for your health with food options that give you more nutrients without sacrificing delicious flavors but aren’t too keen on becoming a strict vegan, consider a plant-based diet.

Plant-based eating promotes the consumption of vegetables and fruits while excluding or minimizing the addition of meat products.  This ‘whole-hearted’ approach to eating is more than just a fad, it’s a lifestyle, and we’re here to break down what it takes to change the way you think about your food, fruits and veg.

So What’s The Fuss About?

Without being completely restrictive, the aim of going plant-based is to eat cleaner, eat more consciously, and live more sustainably – a triple-pronged approach that we could all get behind.

With the turn of the 21st century, manufacturers were forced to lift the lid on their ingredients list, compounding a pre-existing wariness about food and drink because of product recalls, scandals, and suspicion about large companies. This has placed further pressure on producers to offer thorough and honest disclosures about how, where, when and by whom food and drink is grown, harvested, made and sold. As a result, many consumers are making more of a conscious choice about what they are really putting in their mouths and going more for organic and naturally-made products.

This approach has seen more and more people opting for natural and nutritional ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, grains, herbs, spices and other plant-based ingredients that are now playing a center stage role. With plant-based offerings expanding rapidly, we are now seeing more and more quality plant-based milks and meat alternatives on our supermarket shelves. 

What Are The Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet?

Plant-based diets have long been the topic of debate with vegans and carnivores alike, with many meat lovers debating that leafy greens don’t offer the protein-packed complete proteins that animal-based diets do. As we’ve discovered in our article Going plant-basedthere are many nutrient-rich ways to incorporate plant-based products into your daily diet, and we’re excited to share the increased health and environmental benefits of going green.

It’s not surprise that agricultural farming is fast becoming unsustainable with increasing reports estimating around 13% of Australia’s original vegetation has been removed since European settlement. Furthermore, recent studies have concluded that our protein-rich diets are causing adverse health effects, with excessive amounts of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids fast-tracking the pathogenesis of many diseases including cardiovascular disease, cancer and inflammatory autoimmune diseases.

What’s more is our health can also be affected by pathogens and harmful substances transmitted by livestock, such as highly pathogenic avian influenza spreading its way through the globalized marketplace.

On the other side of the spectrum, plant-based diets are fast becoming a flattering alternative on both our waistlines and inner wellbeing. A recent study from the Journal of Geriatric Cardiology found that plant-based diets have a direct correlation in ameliorating insulin resistance, including promotion of a healthy body weight, increases in fiber and phytonutrients, food-microbiome interactions and decreases in saturated fat. This balance of nutrients can help stabilize our blood sugar, prevent diabetes, support healthy cholesterol levels and feed the good bacteria in our gut. And if that wasn’t already enough, a plant-based diet can also prevent cataract and macular degeneration in addition to protecting your skin from sun damage and stimulating the production of collagen.

Review: Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Eye Treatment

A long time ago I wanted to do a review of a product of this brand. And here it is. After 4 weeks trying Origins Plantscription Anti-aging Eye Treatment, I give you my sincere opinion.

eye5.jpg

Name: Plantscription Anti-aging Eye Treatment.

Description: eye contour cream whose mission is to combat the 4 signs of aging: reduce the depth of wrinkles, soften and unify the tone of the skin, reaffirm and moisturize and return elasticity around that area.

Principal Ingredients: with bark of Anogeissus tree.

Aroma: slightly perfumed, with a plant aroma, but soft.

Texture: it is very peculiar, because it looks like a heavier cream, but on contact with the finger, it dissolves into a light gel.

eye3
Finish: natural light.

Duration: the sensation of hydration lasts about 8 hours. It is not that I feel the contour dry after that time, but that fitness is lost a little.

I like it: it feels very soft on the skin and hydrates it immediately. After 4 weeks of use I feel a little more firm and elastic the area around the eyes. Regarding the effect of filling in wrinkles or reducing lines, I could not observe it (I do not have them that marked), but as in all anti-aging products, we must have faith in this sense; if it meets other expectations, the texture accommodates you, and you are willing to pay the price, then it is a perfect fit 🙂

I make the reach that it takes slightly longer to absorb, so if you’re a hustler, you have to take a little time.

eye4

I do not like it: I find it hard to think of something negative, maybe some will think about the price. It is not a cheap cream, but for the benefits it promises (some more immediate and others long term), I think it’s worth it if you care to take care of that area of the face completely.

I recommend it: I think Plantscription Anti-aging Eye Treatment is for women and men with mixed dry eye contour, who want to achieve lasting hydration, luminosity and more elastic skin, in addition to seeking an anti-aging treatment.

I do not recommend it: those with the most fatty contour, it takes a while to absorb. To those who look for a basic eye contour cream, which only moisturizes and illuminates, for example.
If you have an Origins favorite, happy if you to share it in the comments!

How to overcome a Toxic relationship with your mother

Knowing how to improve family toxic relationships is not easy and in all cases they are situations that we find hard to leave, even knowing that they are harmful. When we think of so-called toxic relationships, we bring to mind a poorly managed relationship. But they can also be given among the members of a family, between co-workers and even among friends.

In this article we are going to give you some guidelines to overcome the anxiety about toxic relationship with your mother, but before we will define the concept.

What is a toxic relationship
The first thing you should ask yourself, before being interested in leaving a toxic relationship, is when and why a relationship may be proving so harmful. A great indicator to know if the relationship with your mother is of this type, is if you feel bad when you are together. If you feel manipulated and do or say things you do not want, if you are wanting to get away but you are not able … they are warning signs.

In such cases, the relationship supposes a suffering for you and, surely, also for her, that will always try to reach a little further in the manipulation. The emotional strain is so great that it can even lead to physical symptoms, such as increased blood pressure and headaches. And, also, in problems such as stress or anxiety.

How to identify if you have a toxic relationship with your mother
Learning to identify your mother’s behavior is essential to face the situation and walk towards an acceptable relationship between both. It is important to note that when we talk about leaving a toxic relationship with your mother, it is not necessary to completely abandon contact with your mother or with the rest of your relatives, but it is possible to redefine the way in which you relate so that be more healthy These are some of the signs that can help you to know if the relationship between you is toxic.

Very controlling personality
It is the most visible characteristic of the toxic mothers, which is not limited to the fact of education about their children, but it is prolonged during adulthood. If your mother is not convinced by your ability to decide on your own affairs, perhaps you are trying to follow her criteria when it comes to taking your life path.

This way of behaving can produce anxiety and end up undermining your self-esteem and your determination to be autonomous, an essential step to reach maturity. It tends to occur more frequently in cases of single mothers who have educated their children alone. If you think that is your case, you must find a way to overcome the anxiety of toxic relationship and build a life to suit you.

The projection on his daughter/son
A toxic mother tends to consider that you, as a descendant, are a continuation of her own life and that, therefore, you must reach the goals that she did not reach. In reality, this desire for projection is experienced by both parents and mothers, and not only in the single-parent family. It is assumed that children, having had more and better educational resources, must reach higher social levels.

In this scheme, it is vital to learn the way to break a toxic relationship that will eventually put you in a very painful situation: you will have to forget your dreams to repair the frustrations of your mother.

Mistrust of the environment
Toxic mothers assume that only they are a good influence on their children, so the rest of the relationships are inappropriate and even harmful. In this way, many times, both friends, colleagues and partners become part of the group of undesirables that surround their children and that nothing good is going to contribute.

When children are young, the mother can use her authority to prevent the child from relating to people she considers inappropriate. But in the case of adults, when the authority is no longer exercised in the same way, your mother will try to discredit any person you have close and that is important to you, creating a huge sense of frustration and possibly anxiety. It is vital to learn to cut these behaviors and face the anxiety of a toxic relationship of this nature because, otherwise, you will end up with a very limited environment in which, above all, the few people who are not even you have chosen you.

Indifference towards you
It is another form of toxicity in the relationship between mothers and daughters. The excessive indifference of the mother for everything that happens in the lives of her children can be a cause of constant frustration. Not only does he show no interest in your problems, your achievements or your life in general. Neither shows desire to manage family frictions or any other aspect related to you.

This situation can cause you the same level of anxiety as in the case of a controlling mother, and you will have to learn to recognize the signs of toxicity in the relationship in the same way.

How to leave a toxic relationship with your mother without isolating yourself from your whole family
Before going on to the councils, it is important to emphasize that, if you are in the above situations, you must redirect the relationship and ask for help if you do not feel confident that you can do it alone. Here we are going to offer you some tools so that you can work the bond with your mother, feeling free and well.

# 1 .- Take distance from her
If the relationship is very deteriorated by years of tension, it is best to take physical distance, at least at first. In this way you can analyze your relationship without having the constant and stifling presence of your mother and without her indications on how you should think, feel and act.

But if you choose this solution you should be aware of the side effects that can bring. In our society family values ​​are still very ingrained and breaking away from your mother can be a source of social shame and isolation from the rest of the family.

In any case, it does not have to be a definitive solution, it can be temporary until you clarify your ideas and recover the emotional stability to establish how to leave a toxic relationship without devastating consequences for your future. Only in the most severe cases will this solution be irreversible.

One of the characteristics of the toxic mothers is that the sacrifice that supposes for the children to continue maintaining contact with their mothers is sometimes so heavy that the only option is to cut off contact with them. However painful this exit may be, the suffering will diminish as time passes and you get used to the new situation.

# 2 .- Mediating with your mother
In this case, the effort will be very great, not only because you have to know how to eliminate such a toxic relationship, but because it will be up to you to establish the limits in your relationship. This mediation will be possible only if the toxic relationship is not at an extreme limit or if your mother is really afraid of losing you.

You can count on the help of a professional to guide you on the road to recovery, and then go with your mother to him. The mediator will help to modify the channels of communication between you and to unlock the difficult points of the relationship, making both of you feel better.

You can also choose to ask a relative close to both to help and mediate between you, to avoid a total break. But many times this is not possible because of difficulty in being impartial.

What objectives are achieved with mediation
Encourage adult dialogue and resolve differences jointly.
Expand the understanding of the two about the other person’s wishes and preferences.
Change the attitude of control on the part of your mother about your life and your options. A well-resolved mediation will help you to understand your abilities and your preferences in life, different from hers.
Give the necessary tools to both to strengthen the relationship on a basis of respect and acceptance.
Offer concrete solutions and exercises to work on certain aspects that are especially painful or causes of conflict.
How this mediation is carried out
Although, as we have said before, mediation can be done by a person who is trustworthy for both, if the relationship is very difficult it is best to go to a professional. Through a structured protocol and periodic sessions, will help you redirect your relationship by favoring communication and establishing agreements that must be respected by the parties.

In the next session these agreements will be reviewed and a balance will be made of how the relationship has been from the previous session.

If both are motivated to save the mother-daughter relationship and to make it satisfactory for both of them, the solution of the mediator is, in our opinion, the most advisable.

# 3.- Learning to accept your mother
If you are interested in knowing how to leave a toxic relationship by accepting the particularities of your mother, in this case, you should try to subtract what she says or what she does. It is the most difficult option that we have presented to you, but perhaps the only viable one in the case of a dependent mother, old woman or with whom you share a home.

There is always exit
You may have the sensation of being in a situation with no way out, since you can not opt ​​for any of the solutions that we have raised previously. Your mother is not in a position to go to a mediator and you can not, for whatever reason, physically distance yourself from her.

Although it may seem complicated and unreal, if your situation is what we have seen you have to make an effort to convey how it affects what she does and says about your life. Be sympathetic and try to be the mediating part in your relationship, to get a less harmful relationship and thus work on acceptance.

But that you decide to accept your mother as she is does not mean that she has the right to behave with you in an oppressive way. Not to have a despotic treatment towards you. You must work not to submit to their whims or their manipulations. Your unhappiness is yours and it should not interfere with yours, so do not let it unload on you your own frustration.

If you decide to accept your mother’s way of being instead of breaking the relationship with her, you are in your right, but you must set limits and force yourself to respect them and make them respect them.

If after reading the article you are clear about what your path should be regarding the relationship with your mother, we encourage you to do it with force and determination, without letting yourself be involved in emotional blackmail. Learning to overcome anxiety by toxic relationship is complicated and, if you need it, do not hesitate to seek emotional support in your environment or in a professional. They can work with you to help you develop a healthy and fulfilling relationship.
