May Day challenge

There are many reason why we become sick or ill but there is solution. The reason why we become ill is because of immune system is under attack, build up of toxins and stress which causing inflammation to build up in the body. The best thing do to prevent inflammation is do cleanse or a fast at least once or twice a week or eat fiber everyday. When you have no other option then *cutting certain foods out the diet like dairy, wheat, corn, sugar, soy, eggs and peanuts which also could be causing:
  •  Bloating, belching, passing gas
  •  Diarrhea or constipation
  •  Fatigue, sluggishness
  •  Itchy ears or eyes
  •  Dark circles or bags under eyes
  •  Joint pain or stiffness
  •  Throat tickle, irritation or coughing
  •  Stuffy noise, sinus trouble, excessive mucus
  •  Acne, cysts, hives or rashes
  •  Ruddy, inflamed-looking skin
  •  Flushing
  •  Water retention, skin puffiness
  •  Craving certain foods
  •  Compulsive or binge eating
  • Soda: Studies have found that soda can actually take years off your life by causing rapid aging which, increase risk for disease and even death which is always a factor.
  • Prescribed medicines are riddle with side effects but, it has been study that CoQ10, probiotics, and minerals are helpful in preventing biological damages from daily consumed prescribed drugs.
So, what should you replace these foods with?
Well, with foods like these:

Fermented Foods and Liquids: Fermented Fish, Fermented Organic Soy: Natto(is what should be eating or drinking), Kimichi, Sauerkraut, Miso, Pickled Cucumber, Hibiscus seed, Hot pepper sauce, (If your of  age, a small bottle of Sake, Soju, Wine or Beer are good alternates over the counter meds. and you get a goodnight rest) and Vinegars (rice wine, and apple-cider).
Hemp oil
Spices: Ginger & Turmeric
Green Leafy Veggies
Supplements: Golden Seal, CoQ10, PEO solution, Vitamin D&C, and/or Multiple Vitamin
Fish oil has actually caused more harm than good such as causing all sorts of problems like inflammation, weight gain, and especially diabetics but has been conveyed as end all be all by the media since early 90s. 

*And make sure they are Organic.

A little bit low to moderate exercise can also help keep inflammation and stress of day down. Also drinking plenty of H2O will also help flush out toxins and keep you hydrated.

I'm going Vegan how about you? If your interested try going vegan for 21days.

Hope this helps with any ills and stresses guys you might be going through this season.
