High blood pressure or hypertension is one of the most frequent cardiovascular problems among the world population, also known as the “silent killer” because of the way it develops in the body.

According to the data revealed by the American Heart Association, one in three adults suffers from high blood pressure, that is, at least one third of those who inhabit the planet.
The high rate of diagnoses of this disease has turned on alerts in all corners of the world, especially because many people are unaware of their risks and do not treat them properly.

Given this, the main health entities constantly promote healthy living habits and try to provide all kinds of information in this regard.

Being aware of the risks of suffering from hypertension is one of the first measures to initiate a control and treatment. Having that clear, it is good to know some supports to reduce it naturally and not have to limit exclusively to the consumption of drugs.

Raw almonds

Fruits against the symptoms of allergies 

Many people who suffer from allergies, simply and simply hear about hay fever and suffer similar symptoms claim that they also suffer from hay fever, ignoring that there are many allergens that produce the same symptoms, so it is best to consult to an allergist who will help you find out exactly what caused your allergy. It may not be a pollen allergy, it could be due to mites or even cigarette smoke.

Symptoms of allergies are induced by an abnormal tissue response when exposed to a selected antigen, also considered as allergens. If all of the body’s tissues react to a selected antigen, the allergic response becomes active and begins to show results throughout the body. Allergic reactions can occur in almost any part of the body. There is a wide variety of circumstances and substances of how allergic reactions can be induced, understanding the mechanism that makes them jump can help to select the remedy for allergy symptoms.

The signs of allergy can offer various signs and symptoms based on a particular person and their tolerance toward it. Generalized allergic signs such as dizziness, headaches, nervousness, depression, irritability, hay fever, conjunctivitis, diarrhea, asthma, and swelling of the eyes. Obtaining your own first aid kit with anti-allergy properties is a good idea for men and women who are susceptible to allergic reactions. This kit should include the regulatory treatments for allergies and so react quickly to an eventuality of this type.

However, if a certain type of allergy persists, after trying these popular remedies, it is best to consult your general practitioner

The truth about breakfast Cereals

Cereals are an extraordinary and balanced food, ideal not only for breakfast, but also for lunch or dinner. But when we talk about cereals, we talk about those that come out of the earth and that do not look anything like that infamous thing that appears in a colorful box in the supermarket

We explain some convincing reasons to avoid box cereals altogether, be they “special I do not know what” or “special light I do not know how many”. We also explain how to make a real healthy breakfast with real cereals.

Common sense
Before entering fully into the matter, we only expose an idea that we consider to be of great common sense. Cereals are an extraordinary food but … Can we really call these colored balls cereals to feed our sons and daughters? How is that like a grain of rice? Where does the color come from? How is the taste of wheat similar to those brown cereal sticks with “low fat” chocolate?

What do the box cereals contain?
Depending on the type and brand, cash cereals usually contain:
Sugar: Especially box cereals for boys and girls and “normal”, that is, those that are not “special I do not know what” or “light” or “low in sugar” (these contain even worse things). The first thing we have to be clear is that the most abundant ingredient in many of them is, in addition to gluten, huge amounts of refined sugar.
Gluten: All box cereals made from wheat, oats, rye or barley contain gluten. We recommend you read our article “Wheat, poison in the diet” to know the many damages of gluten (not only in people with celiac disease but in the whole world) according to the interesting currents of active cellular nutrition (with which we totally agree) .
Corn: Almost all the corn produced in the world is transgenic (see our transgenic report) and our enzymes have serious problems to metabolize genetically altered structures. It is not that they do not know, they do what they can, generating serious disturbances in the organism (we recommend that you read the fabulous book “the truth about transgenics” by the French minister Corine Lepage … it will make your hair stand on end.
Synthetic Sweeteners: In our opinion (and increasingly that of more independent professionals from large multinationals), synthetic sweeteners are some of the most dangerous additives that exist, especially aspartame, suspected of producing rare types of brain cancer (see our report about aspartame and this list of safe and dangerous additives.
Nothing: Cash cereals contain, basically, a lot of nothing. That is, a completely processed product with a minimum amount of essential nutrients and additives. That is why, many times, they are forced to introduce added vitamins and minerals, which is completely absurd, since natural cereals contain vitamins and minerals. Look at the nonsense: they refine them, they take away everything good, and then they add it artificially … Are we crazy? Just to have an appetizing appearance and produce desire to eat a lot, because its flavor is irresistible thanks to certain additives.
It is true that, depending on the brands, the box cereals may contain more fiber (which is healthy), and may be more or less processed and therefore contain more or less nutrients, almost always very inadequate, and especially accompanied by:

Sugar + gluten + additives
Sugar + transgenics + additives
Synthetic sweeteners + gluten or transgenics + additives
What do real cereals contain?
The real cereals (not those that come in box) contain a series of essential and very healthy nutrients that, combined with other foods that we will see right away, provide a complete ration of essential nutrients to start the day with energy and health:

Proteins: Cereals contain a certain amount of proteins, although they do not contain all the essential amino acids, so it is important to add other foods that contain them in order to form a protein of high biological value. The best and healthiest to make this sum are the seeds and nuts.
Carbohydrates and fiber: The cereals contain carbohydrates of slow absorption (that is to say, of the good ones, those that provide energy and do not get fat) and a lot of fiber (essential to keep healthy the intestinal flora).
Fats: Hardly contain fats, although the few they contain are not saturated. Healthy fats that are necessary (essential fatty acids from the omega family) are also obtained from seeds and nuts.
Vitamins, minerals and other essential elements: Cereals, naturally, contain in their composition certain vitamins, minerals and other elements that contribute to the efficiency of our metabolism and general physiology. It is true that cereals do not contain enough of these elements. To provide enough vitamins and minerals, there is no better source than, at another time of the day, take plenty of vegetables, vegetables and greens (more vegetable than fruit, to avoid sugar), because they are the natural elements that more vitamins and minerals they contain.
Organic box cereals
In the stores of ecological products we also find cereals of box, or cereals in bags, but also with them we must be careful.

Likewise, although they are not transgenic, they contain gluten and often also large amounts of sugar.

If you are going to buy box cereals in a super organic, make sure they have little sugar (it would be better if they had stevia sweetener, since it is the healthiest natural sweetener of all).

Try not also to choose wheat, barley, or rye. Oatmeal is somewhat healthier, since it has many nutritional properties, but unfortunately it also has gluten (although less than the others mentioned above). If you are going to consume oats, better in moderation, from time to time.

The best cereals
First of all, we recommend that, among all the cereals, you choose rice in the first place. Rice is the cereal most consumed by all civilizations ; is the cereal that is recommended when we are sick in the stomach (for something will be) … Why not consume it even if we are not sick or ill?

Rice is the cereal that has been least genetically transformed and, therefore, is the one that best assimilate our enzymes (essential for health in general). It does not carry gluten and is the most digestive (see our article on the importance of consuming rice.

Other cereals that are also very healthy due to their characteristics (they do not have gluten) are buckwheat (which is not wheat, even if it is called that), millet and quinoa.

When we hear the word fat burning, the magic pills that we can find even in supermarkets come to mind, but nothing is further from reality: fat burning foods are natural products that accelerate our metabolism by undoing the accumulated fat deposits in our bodies. the tissues.

We must bear in mind that weight loss has to be gradual to avoid the annoying rebound effect, and although we can use specific diets in specific cases such as fat burning soup, remember that this type of diet should never be carried out for more than seven days
Drink a minimum of two liters of water per day. This will eliminate toxins and everything your body does not need.
Eliminate refined flours, industrial food, sweets from your meals … these foods are our biggest enemies, something like fat accumulators.
Exercise. The sedentary lifestyle has dire consequences, not only for our weight, but also for your health. Just walking half an hour a day will make you feel much better.
Eat. To lose weight, the important thing is not to stop eating, but quite the opposite. You must make five meals a day, giving priority to breakfast and, of course, controlling what you eat.
FAT BURN FOOD
Today we bring you five examples of fat-burning foods that will be very easy to include in your day to day without having to radically change your meals, thus avoiding the inconvenience of starting a diet and what that entails, because let’s be honest, the simple word diet makes our appetite open
The Apple. The forbidden fruit in our case will be our greatest ally. It is one of the best fat burning foods, although to notice its effects you must take two or three pieces of this fruit daily. Include one at breakfast as it will give you the strength you need to face the day, another piece you can take as a dessert and the last at dinner. To take it, use imagination: you can take it naturally, make a smoothie or a delicious dessert such as apple pie or apple sauce; Do it as you like!
Green Tea. At this point, we all know the benefits of green tea, as it reduces the ability to absorb fats from food and stimulates the burning of accumulated fat in the body. Drink as much green tea as you want.
Watermelon. All foods with high water content will help us not only to eliminate toxins, but also to eliminate fat from our body. The watermelon also, with that sweetness that identifies it, becomes one of our favorite dishes especially in summer.
Calcium. The ideal is to consume three servings of dairy per day, since calcium stimulates the combustion of fats. A glass of milk and two yogurts will give us the daily rations we need and help us fight fat. Have you tried mixing yogurt with apple chips? It’s delicious dessert that combines two of our favorite fat burning foods.
Spices Curry, paprika and pepper among others, due to its spicy flavor generate a greater energy expenditure during digestion, so they burn fat while they are digested. If you are a fan of spicy food, take advantage, always in moderation.

6 signs that you eat to “hiding” what you really feel

Several countries in the world, faces a serious problem of overweight and obesity in its adult population. A situation that could be caused by a characteristic that differentiates humans from animals: feelings.

According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, the hormones in our stomach communicate directly with the brain, causing a pleasurable sensation. This explains why there are some people who feel the need to consume sweet or fatty foods when they experience sadness or anguish.

Does your heart dominate everything?
The relationship between the brain and stomach is so close that even when you experience love, the “butterflies” feel in the abdomen. However, not everything is good. There are times when you eat to hide feelings that are not pleasant causing, in the long term, a problem.

For this reason we present the following signals that can indicate you eat to hide your emotions.

 

1. Emotional hunger starts suddenly. Everything opposite to the physics that happens gradually.

 

2. When you are eating to mitigate a feeling it does not matter if your stomach is full or empty, you only need to eat. In this case, you tend to choose a specific food, since you do not like any food; a contrary situation happens when it is due to hunger.

 

3. It requires immediate satisfaction. In specific about an unhealthy food.

 

4. It does not matter if you are full. You feel the need to keep eating, regardless of whether this causes you discomfort (pain or inflammation).

 

5. New emotions arise. After the excess of food there is a feeling of guilt.

 

6. You experience a degree of control. With each bite you think the situation begins to calm down and you feel more confident about what is going to happen.

 

The American College of Cardiology, points out that an excellent tip to avoid eating for emotions is the following: stop and take deep breaths before you start eating your food.

 

A balanced diet not only takes care of your physical well-being, also emotionally.
