How to avoid, or reverse quickly and easily
If there is one health imbalance which is common to many medical conditions, it is Chronic acidosis. So pervasive is this under-the-radar health problem, yet many have never even heard of it, though they suffer its consequences for years or decades.
Simply put, Chronic acidosis is a systemic condition of the body which slowly emerges over time due to improper eating, especially when there is a sustained level of stress in one’s life that is not managed in a healthy way. There are other co-factors, but a substandard and incompatible diet is by far the primary physical cause when coupled with habitual maladaptive stress responses to the pressures of life.
Your food can be your best medicine or worst toxin
All foods and beverages can be divided into three categories: those that are acidifying; those which are alkalizing and those which have a neutral effect on the body’s PH. Continue reading
Causes and Natural Remedies
There is perhaps no pain as agonizing as the pain associated with a slowly passing kidney stone. From all who have suffered from this ailment of the uro-genital tract, we have heard that they never want to experience this excruciating pain again. And so we are compelled to highlight the causes and natural cures for both the trauma, as well as the chronic condition from which this imbalance springs.
“Kidney stones develop when microscopic particles form in the collecting system of your urinary tract and then gradually enlarge. When they become large enough to move, kidney stones can cause excruciating pain. Low urinary volume — the result of inadequate fluid intake — high concentrations of calcium, oxalate, phosphate, sodium and uric acid ions, acidic urine and low levels of citrate all favor stone formation. A variety of medical conditions contribute to kidney stones, too, including diabetes, obesity, gout and some intestinal diseases. A family history of kidney stones also increases your risk.”(Per Livestrong.com)
Three examples of kidney stones -- the more painful variety
Kidney stones are much more common these days for a number of reasons. So much of the modern lifestyle contributes to their formation and so little is done to maintain good kidney health. “Kidney stones, usually comprised of a compound called calcium oxalate, are the result of a build-up of dissolved minerals on the inner lining of the kidneys.” Here are some of the causes, which very few in the medical model will tell you.

Obesity is becoming America’s number one health problem, particularly because it can lead to so many serious medical conditions. The Health Coach finds that the causes and the cures remain quite elusive for many because of the pervasive misunderstanding around both.
Rather than focus on the traditional aspects of obesity, we will direct your attention to those which are seldom mentioned. There are very profound and significant emotional and mental components to this imbalance which warrant a close look. Each of them revolves around the issue of stress and how we deal with it in our lives.
Truly, stress is the primary trigger for virtually all of our physical maladies. Actually, it is our habitual and programmed ways for processing stress which is at the root of many ailments and imbalances. The mismanagement of stress is the most influential co-factor in the development of chronic obesity. Simply put, the overwhelming pressures of modern life cause many of us to adapt in ways that contribute to an over-size body.
Here are just a couple of the maladaptive responses which many overweight folks have evolved during the course of their lifetimes. Continue reading

The 3 fastest Jamaican sprinters
Simple answer. If you’ve ever been to Jamaica, it’s clear these beautiful and happy people have a well established tradition of very healthy eating.
Their entire culture has blended the best cuisine from a number of different influences. The island nation of Jamaica is fairly large with multiple weather patterns crisscrossing it making possible for a diverse number of crops to be grown. The availability of vegetables and fruits, grains and legumes is quite plentiful and allows for a plethora of tasty recipes.
Jamaican food is the real secret to the strength and robust constitution which so many of the residents possess. Eating such healthy and well-balanced diets from a young and tender age, however, is the key to why these sprinters dominate the sport. Compared to American kids who eat so many processed meals and junk food from early on, Jamaicans seem to have a sense of what to stay away from. The mothers really do take good care of their young during the formative stages of growth and development, which sets them up for good health later in life. Continue reading
