Your Dental Questions Answered

Have you ever wondered what the real truth is when it comes to dental procedures and dental materials used to correct the problems with your teeth and oral health?

  • Are amalgam fillings safe as the dental industry says they are or is there really cause for concern?
  • Is fluoride really good for your teeth or is it toxic like so many health advocates claim?
  • What about root canals?
  • Can eating the right foods really make a difference in your dental health?

These questions and more will be answered in the HealThy Mouth World Summit.

Even I have questions about what’s really true and healthy. I’ve spent hours upon hours searching for the truth online when it comes to my own dental health and I still don’t feel like I’ve got it all figured out. So, I jumped at the opportunity to share this important program. I’ll be there. I wouldn’t miss this opportunity to learn from the real experts.

Vegetarian vs. Non-Vegetarian

The debate has been ongoing, probably for centuries. There are those who claim that being a vegetarian is the healthiest way to eat. Others contend that animal proteins are necessary for good health. There appear to be credible sources on each side of the debate.

Who do you believe?

If we take a look at the animal kingdom, we note that …

  • Herbiverous (plant eating) animals have a very long digestive system with several stomachs to digest and extract the nutrients from plants.
  • Predatory animals have a short digestive system and cannot digest plant foods.

The human digestive system is short, similar to that of predatory animals, with one stomach, and produces enzymes that only break down animal products.

So, are humans supposed to eat only animal foods?

In actuality, both plant foods and animal foods serve a purpose for our bodies and our health.

Animal foods build our bodies and nourish our cells. They feed our bodies to meet our complex nutritional needs.

Plant foods, on the other hand, are cleansing and detoxifying. They help to remove toxins from our bodies and aid in healing.

This is why programs like juice fasting and vegan diets help people to heal from serious illnesses. But once your body is finished cleansing, you have to feed and nourish your body to rebuild your health.

Nourish Your Body And Build Good Health

Nourishment and health building is best done with clean animal foods from organic, grass-fed, pastured animals raised in the outdoors and sunshine, allowed to eat their native diets.

Both animal foods and plant foods, raw and cooked, are part of an ongoing healthy diet.

How much of each should you eat?

It varies. Because we are all unique individuals, there is no one eating prescription that is right for everyone.

When you are eating only healthy foods, you need to pay attention to your senses.

  • Are you hungry?
  • What do you feel like eating?
  • Does it smell good?
  • Does it taste good?
  • Do you feel satisfied after you eat it?

Tune in to what your body wants. When you listen, you will be eating what your body needs.

Are You Ready For A Healthy Holiday For A Change?

What Is Your Holidays Mindset?

There will be holiday parties at work, school, with family and friends. The goodies will be abundant … most full of sugar and other unhealthy ingredients.

Will you be among those who say…

“It’s the holidays. I’m just going to enjoy the food and festivities and think about getting healthy in January.”

Are you going to let yourself put on an extra five or ten pounds thinking you’ll lose it after the first of the year when you make those New Year’s resolutions that you never keep? And that five pounds accumulates every year so that you’ve added an extra 20, 30 or 50 pounds that you don’t know how to get rid of because all the diets you’ve tried have been a dismal failure?

Or are you going to take charge of your health this holiday season?

You can enjoy the fun and festivities and still have a healthy holiday.

Here are a few tips …

Prepare healthy holiday foods. Last time, I gave you a great many suggestions for healthy Thanksgiving fare. The same foods that are healthy for Thanksgiving can also be prepared for the upcoming holidays this month. If you want some variety, different from Thanksgiving food choices, keep these points in mind …

  • Focus on healthy animal proteins, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.
  • Eat frequent small meals, every two or three hours, but don’t overeat. You can still have three main meals, but eat smaller portions to account for the between-meal snacks.
  • Choose healthy snack foods, like nuts and seeds, fruit and nuts, celery, carrot or apple slices with nut butter.

If you have to have those baked goodies, try some Paleo recipes using coconut flour instead of wheat or other grains.

Here’s a recipe for Nut Butter Bars from one of my favorite cookbooks, The Primal BluePrint Cookbook. (used with permission) page 196.

1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup hazelnuts
1 1/2 cups pecans
2/3 cup flax meal
2/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup unsalted almond butter (or other nut butter)
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 1/2 teaspoons blackstrap molasses
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
Optional…
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips or dried fruit

Place almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, flax meal, shredded coconut, nut butter, salt and molasses in a food processor. Depending on the size of your food processor, you may have to put in half of the nuts, pulse a few times and then add the rest. Process until the consistency is fairly smooth (but not completely) then slowly drizzle in the oil until a coarse paste forms. Stir in chocolate or dried ftuit, if using. Scrape the batter into an 8×8 pan lined with parchment and press down evenly to fill the pan. Chill in refrigerator for at least one hour, preferably more, until bars harden.

Here’s a recipe for Carob Coconut Candy. I threw it together one night when I had a fierce chocolate craving. It’s been a favorite ever since.

So, here you have two healthy dessert recipes that you can use this holiday season to help keep your holidays healthy.

Healthy Holiday Fare

The holidays are just around the corner.

This is the time of year when we celebrate with family, friends, coworkers and FOOD! … Often the wrong kinds of  foods and frequently too much.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

You can celebrate and have healthy food that tastes great too!

Last time, in”Wake Up Call: Prevent Disease Before It is Too Late,” I wrote about how we’re dying younger than our parents. And the first place to look for the cause of our declining health is in the food we eat.

Our food today is refined, denatured, genetically engineered and sprayed heavily with toxic pesticides. Virtually all health-giving nutrients are processed out, with a few token synthetic nutrients added back to make you think you’re getting something good … but you’re not. There is almost nothing in so many of the foods on the market that will support vibrant health. If you keep eating these foods, the only possibility is poor health. And it’s happening at younger and younger ages today.

So, what are you supposed to eat?

There are a lot of healthy foods that will nourish your body and taste great too! Since Thanksgiving is coming up next week, here’s a link to Paleo Thanksgiving Recipes. It’s the full fare from the turkey to the dessert. And yes, there are healthy desserts that you can eat on a healthy diet.

If these don’t suit your fancy, check out the Thanksgiving recipes and dozens of other healthy recipes I posted on my Healthy Eating Advisor blog.

To reverse the current trend of declining health and earlier death, you must eliminate the cause. By eating healthy, nutrient-dense, enzyme-rich foods, you will nourish your body and your health will start to improve.

Wake Up Call: Prevent Disease Before It is Too Late

In the last two years, one cousin and three close friends have died. The first two friends were my best girl friends from childhood. We played together from elementary school age and graduated high school together. The third was one of my college friends.

My cousin, who is younger than I, died in September 2010 from lymphoma. My first girlfriend died in August 2010 from Lou Gehrig’s disease. Her husband, who also graduated from high school with us, preceded her in death in 2009. My second childhood girlfriend, succumbed in June of this year, to cancer. My college friend just died suddenly October 3, 2012.

It is being said that our children’s generation will not live as long as their parents. I think it’s already happening.

We are not living as long as our parents.

Getting Your Kids To Eat Healthy Food

Common complaints I hear from parents are …

  • My kids won’t eat vegetables.
  • My kids won’t eat fruit.
  • My kids won’t drink water.
  • My kids only want to eat at fast food restaurants.
  • My kids don’t like healthy food.

How do you get kids to eat healthy food?

First, it’s important to know that kids learn to like what they are taught to eat.

They like cookies, candy, chips, French fries, pizza and soda because they were given those foods by parents, relatives or friends.

Teaching kids to eat healthfully starts when they’re little, preferably before they’re born. The mom should make sure that all the food she eats not only while pregnant, but when thinking about getting pregnant, should be healthy and nourishing.

Ideally a child should be breast fed for at least one year, preferably two or longer. When the child is ready for solid foods, only healthy foods should be introduced. Skip the candy, ice cream, cake and cookies. This is where poor eating habits start.

When my daughter was a toddler, I used to do mommy-and-me gymnastics with her. One mom came with her son and a daughter less than a year old who stayed in a stroller during the class. To keep her little girl quiet, the mom used to give her red licorice to chew on. That mom was teaching her daughter to like candy, a substance that when eaten regularly over a lifetime will make her susceptible to developing a weak immune system, diabetes, obesity and cancer.

What if that mother had given her child some grapes, banana slices or cooked carrots instead? Then she would have been teaching her to like healthy foods.

If a child is only given healthy foods, they will develop their likes and dislikes for among the healthy foods and they WILL like healthy food.

Now, I understand that other people like to give your kids treats. They will just have to be trained … to only give your kids healthy, pre-approved foods and snacks.

When your children get to be school age and if they go to school, rather than be home-schooled, their teachers will have to be trained.

There are a few schools nationwide that serve only healthy food and only allow healthy food to be brought to school. They don’t even allow candy and cupcakes for birthdays. Now while some may think this is terrible, I think these schools should be set up as an example for all schools to imitate. The schools that have implemented this policy have shown more alertness among their students and better academic performance.

When kids learn healthy eating habits while young, they get a healthier start in life and their healthy eating habits will carry over into their teen and adult years and they will have better health to live a longer and healthier life.

What do you do now if your kids are not healthy eaters?

I have a tool, called “My Personal Food Planner” that you can use to transition to healthier eating habits. Print one out for every member of your family.

You will list the unhealthy foods you like to eat in the left column and healthy foods you like or would like to try, that you can substitute for the unhealthy one, in the three right columns.

Every day or every couple days, choose one unhealthy food that you are ready to  eliminate from your diet and substitute a healthy one. Keep doing this until you are no longer eating the unhealthy foods.

Let your school-age children make their own Personal Food Planners. Kids cooperate better if they know they have some control. For younger kids, sit down with them and let them tell you what foods they want to substitute, with a little help from you. Make this a family adventure … exploring new and healthier foods.

Here are some healthy recipes to help you get started.

My two favorite cookbooks are …

Are You Deficient In Iodine?

It’s a well known fact that iodine is important for your thyroid gland. But, do you know that every cell in your body needs and uses iodine?

If you don’t get enough iodine through your diet or through nutritional supplementation your thyroid gland can’t function optimally and neither can many of your other organs and glands. When your thyroid is functioning at less than normal, you could increase your risk for

  • breast cancer
  • high cholesterol
  • high blood pressure
  • diabetes
  • obesity
  • fibromyalgia
  • chronic fatigue syndrome
  • and more …

Iodine is an essential nutrient and many people are not getting enough. If you suffer from any of the disorders listed above an iodine deficiency could possibly be a part of your problem.

Even if the thyroid indicators on your blood test – TSH, T4 and T3 – come back normal, you still could be at risk for low thyroid and low iodine. Why? Blood tests measure thyroid hormone circulating in your blood. Iodine functions within your cells. Blood tests don’t measure cellular function.

You also have to be careful when you supplement with iodine. Too much can be as bad as not enough.

Request a FREE consultation and I’ll give you two simple home tests that you can do to get an idea if you might be deficient in iodine or have a problem with a low functioning thyroid. I’ll also help you to determine the next step you should take to start feeling better.
