Health benefits of peaches

One of the main reasons I love the summer time is for the amazing juicy fruits like peaches. Not only do they taste amazing, but there are so many great benefits to them. There is a long list but here a just a few.

 

Weight Control
One large peach, about 2 3/4 inches in diameter, contains just 68 calories and no fat. Eating peaches instead of more fattening, processed snacks, such as chips, baked goods, cereal bars and cookies, can help you manage your weight. Peaches are naturally sweet and can replace some of the added sugars in your diet.

Vitamins

Peaches contain 10 different vitamins. Peaches contain vitamin A, important to healthy vision, vitamin C, an antioxidant and tissue-builder. Peaches provide lower levels of vitamins E and K. Vitamin E is another antioxidant, while vitamin K is essential to your body’s blood clotting capabilities. Peaches are also a source of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, niacin, folate and pantothenic acid

Minerals

A peach provides potassium, which can help you maintain healthy blood pressure as well as prevent kidney stones and bone loss. Peaches provide some magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, iron and calcium as well. These minerals work to support red blood cell, bone and nervous system health.

Antioxidants

One of the major antioxidants in peaches, chlorogenic acid, helps scavenge free radicals — compounds that your body acquires through exposure to pollutants, food and the environment — to reduce the effects of aging and deter chronic diseases. This antioxidant may also help ward off cancer and reduce body

Fiber

A large peach provides 17 g of carbohydrates, 3 g of which come from fiber. Fiber is essential to smooth and healthy digestion, preventing constipation and ensuring digestive health. Fiber may also play a role in regulating your cholesterol levels, helping to reduce your risk of developing heart disease. An adult woman should try to consume 25 g of fiber daily, and an adult man 38 g daily.

Peaches are a lot of great source of zinc, which has anti-aging properties. The consumption of zinc-rich foods such as peaches promotes the production of antibodies and inhibits the cellular damage caused by toxins. Peaches also interferes with the aging process of male reproductive organs by boosting the levels of the reproductive hormone testosterone in the body.

So next time you’re out grocery shopping, be sure to pick up a bag of peaches for yourself.

Wellness Wednesday: common detox symptoms

I’ve gotten so many inboxes concerning two common symptoms of detoxing. Those symptoms are constipation and excess body odor. There are other symptoms experienced during detoxing/fasting, but these are the two common ones everyone experiences right off the top.

While going through a detox, there are two main exits for these toxins to escape from. The skin and colon. Many people have mentioned how they’ve felt really backed up during the first few days of detoxing/fasting. Well it’s really normal. Depending on how much waste is in the body, it could be that the detox is working faster than the body is able to process it. So as the body is detoxing itself, waste is piling up in the colon trying to get out. This is not the time to give up!! Instead, drink more water and if possible incorporate some exercise. A simple 15-30 minute walk around the neighborhood/office will do to get things flowing.

The other complaint is that people experience excess body odor. The thing not to do is to bathe in Cologne/perfume, or any heavy deodorants. Toxins are trying to get out through the skin and putting on all those things will cause the skin to clog up and could lead to sickness. Use light oils like coconut oil, rose water, or any deodorant that does not contain aluminum or other chemicals.

If you have anymore questions concerning detoxing, fasting, weight loss, and other health questions. Be sure to schedule a consultation with me by clicking here.

What are your feet telling you

We’ve all experienced some sort of foot pain at some point and time in our lives. Like that time you bought those shoes that you just couldn’t live without, even though they were too tight.

There have also been times when we have had a nagging pain that just wouldn’t seem to go away. Something like a ball getting lodge in the bottom of your foot.
The foot is one of the most sensitive parts of the body. With each foot there is 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and tendons. Which makes up about 25% of the bones in the body. On each foot there are over 7,000 nerve endings called reflexes that correspond to every organ and system within your body. So when your experiencing foot discomfort, it could be something serious.

For instance, people who are diabetic can experience getting a foot or toes removed if symptoms become deadly. That’s why regular foot care is important.

Massaging the feet regularly can bring some very noticeable changes over time. The benefits of getting foot massage can be:

•Relaxation
•improves circulation
•Normalizes gland function
•pain management
•revitalizes enters
•promotes overall well-being
•strengthens immune system

Getting services like reflexology can began a turnaround in a persons overall health. Also it wouldn’t hurt to walk outside in the grass sometimes. Doing so allows to electrical energy from the earth to enter into the body, which allows for healing. Nature is the best medicine you know.

Be sure when getting any body work done that the products used are chemical free, and preferably food based. This is to insure no pathogens enter into the body through the skin, causing any damage the the organs or cells.

If you’re a “do it yourselfer” like myself, massaging with coconut oil is always a great route to go. Going through each toe and massaging top and bottom of the foot brings much relief and comfort from the long day. Also, try and wear the feet out as much as possible to avoid bacteria build up and fungus.
So next time you’re out getting your grooming work done, be sure to think of your feet as well. You’ll be glad you did.image

GOOD VIBES ONLY…Your words have power

Have you ever had a moment where something became so clear to you that you just wanted to scream it out to EVERYBODY?

 

Well this is one of those moments.

 

One night during my routine meditation, I noticed something so amazing. The vibration that takes place when we speak is amazing. We’ve all heard something to the extent of “your words have power,” or “use your words to create your reality.” Well this one night I was speaking words along the lines of “worthy,” “tranquility,” “abundance,” and so on. As I laid flat on the floor, I could feel the intense vibrations flow throughout my body as I spoke each word. There was an overwhelming sense of gratitude, love, and relief. I realized then how powerful my words truly were. Again, this is something I’ve heard for a while in church and just my daily interactions with others. It was something I understood well and I thought I was practicing but after that experience I knew I wasn’t completely there.

 

I realized how many times I sabotaged my own growth and release just by saying the wrong thing. I allowed my emotions to get the best of me, which in turn created a lower level of vibration. I then began to shift to thoughts of how God must feel to see me operate in a state less than my God-like self. Not only was I limiting myself, but also I was limiting God. In that instant, I forgave myself for all those times of doubt, fear, and thoughts of lack and limiting beliefs. Now that I am in this space, there is no turning back. It’s like I have a fresh new wind.

 

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2
