Keys to Long Lasting Health

We know that good health is directly linked to healthy food and exercise.

We know a lot about vitamins, minerals and alkaline food.

However, we need to know the main keys for permanent health.

This article is about some inside tips for your health.

It is not enough to know about healthy food or exercise.

It is not adequate to focus on your body and forget about other aspects.

Health is about the combination of all important factors.

It is about the Holistic Approach.

Our health is enhanced by the connection of our mind and body.

Add to this your emotions.

Good health is= Mind+body+emotions.

And even knowing this formula is not enough.

Why?

Because there are many variables & secrets within these 3 main factors.

We have to know about those secrets of: exercise, food and emotions.

Let us examine and explain some secrets about main factors for better health.

Main Causes for Long Lasting Health:

A-Physical Exercise:

The benefits are well known, but do we know how to exercise?

Any physical movement is no doubt good for your health, but you need to know the best way for exercise.

Here are some exercise tips:

1-Exercise for at Least Continuous 30 Minutes. The brain starts releasing endorphins only after 30 minutes of uninterrupted exercise. You need endorphins for your mood and emotional health. Also you need it for your muscles and heart.

2-Do Not Over Exercise: Start slowly and gradually. If you want to run 5 miles/day, start gradually, say at first 2 miles/day, and gradually increase it. Over training can cause the heart to enlarge to an abnormal size which can cause future problems.

3-After Exercising, Drink Only Warm Liquids. Cold drinks immediately after exercise can cause body temperature to drop too quickly. This can lower your immune system and cause flu. The Chinese are known for drinking warm water even during hot weather so as to maintain their energy level.

4-Take at Least One Day off/Week: As your body needs exercise for better health, it also needs rest.

B-Healthy Food:

We know about healthy food such as: fruits, vegetables, yogurt, nuts & beans. Those foods are alkaline and very good for the heart and the blood. They are full of nutrients, vitamins & minerals. However, we need to know how to eat them without health problems.

Here are some eating tips:

1-Do Not Eat Fruits With Any Other Type of Food. If you do, that food will ferment, and you lose all of its healthy ingredients plus some stomach discomfort which will drain your energy. Eat fruit only 30 minutes before, or at least 2 hours after any meal.

2-Do Not Eat Meat With Rice or With Any Starchy Food. This will create indigestion and destroys the ingredients. Meat with beans or wheat products is good.

3-Stay Away From Sugar and Desserts: sugar will feed cancer cells that are dormant in our body. Sugar also lowers the immune system and makes you vulnerable to all kinds of coughs and colds.

4-Do Not Eat Anything While You Are Angry or Under Strong Negative Emotion. That food would become toxins in your body and very likely you would develop either diabetes or high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Under negative emotions or stress, your body releases Cortisol which is called the Stress-Hormone. Cortisol weakens your main organs such as the kidney, heart or lungs.

C- Your Lifestyle:

If you exercise well and eat healthy food, does that guarantee good health?

No.

Because if you have some bad habits, those habits can damage the good effects of exercise & healthy food.

For example, if you smoke 2 packets of cigarettes/day, the nicotine level in your blood would damage your arteries and heart even with good exercise.

Another harmful addiction is drugs. Drugs like cocaine and marijuana can damage brain cells, according to many scientific studies.

Your lifestyle has to match your health.

You have to do what is congruent-not against- your healthy habits.

Some tips for a healthy lifestyle:

1-Go Outdoor: staying too much indoor can promote depression, according to some studies.

2-The Sun: you need to expose yourself to the sun for at least 10 minutes/day. Not only the sun is good for your body and bones because of vitamin D, but it is more important for your mood. The sun is very good for fighting depression. The sun releases rays that are very useful for the hormones. Hormone balance is much more important than vitamins & minerals.

3-Relaxation Techniques: Yoga, meditation and self- hypnosis are all essential for your mental and body relaxation. If you live in a big city where life is fast-paced, you will need to slow down your brainwaves.

These tools can become as important as a necessity. Half an hour of daily Yoga or 1 hour of Chi Kong/day can make a significant difference on your health. My personal experience with Chi Kong taught me that 1 hour/day can increase your energy and boost your health by quantum leaps. Chi Kong will make you healthy physically, mentally and emotionally. The secret is to reach that one hour mark. You can reach it gradually within a month of practice.

4-Adopt Positive Attitudes & Gratitude: Good health has to mix up with good emotions like gratitude. Positive emotions like gratitude or faith can boost your energy and strengthen your body organs.

A Classic Example: Yesterday, George Bush reached his 90-year-old mark. It was his 90th birthday.

In spite of his old age, he is still in good health. He took good care of his body throughout his life journey. He used to run on a daily basis. He kept his mind active. To show his good health, and to celebrate his 90th birthday, he jumped out of a helicopter and parachuted to the ground, yesterday.

I guess not many people can do that even at an earlier age.

Jon Meacham, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, said this about G. Bush “He had a remarkable great run of good health and good family and good friends,” he said. “So I know his chief view of life at 90 is one of immense gratitude. He’s very grateful for his parents, he’s grateful for Barbara, he’s grateful for his kids. He knows he’s one of the luckiest guys who ever lived, really.”

Penis Health Sex Tips

Text the boss. Answer emails. Pick up the kids. Buy groceries. Pay bills. People today are busier than they’ve ever been – arguably, too busy. Certainly when couples find themselves too busy for sex, something has to give. Assuming a guy has maintained proper penis care and the issue is availability rather than ability, men (and their partners) may find these tips valuable as a way of helping busy lovers make time for sex – and by extension, better penis health.

Start the day right

Most guys assume this means getting in a quick one before work – and, hey, there’s nothing wrong with that. But most busy couples feel a little too time-pressed for that. Instead, couples need to make some time just to be together. An ideal way is to set the alarm for, say, five minutes earlier than usual. When the alarm goes off, just wrap arms around each other and cuddle up for a few minutes. A little nuzzling and kissing is good, but it’s more about just being together.

Get clean together

After a few days of cuddling in the mornings, set the alarm 10 minutes earlier every so often and take a shower together as well. Again, this doesn’t have to include actual sex – although it’s fine if it does. But it’s more about being naked together, running hands along each other’s bodies. Sure, it may mean that someone – especially the guy – may get aroused and feel a little frustrated if there’s no time to act on that arousal. But it may also make a couple more committed to setting aside time when they can fulfill each other.

Keep it up during the day

Even if there’s been no time to plan for sex, keep reminding the partner of how much they matter. Playful (or suggestive) little texts, an email with a link to something that interests them, a quick phone call – all this can help keep both parties feeling connected and anxious to share themselves more fully.

Schedule it

Sure, making an appointment for sex seems not-so-sexy. But not having sex at all is the ultimate not-so-sexy. The most basic of tips for busy people is to make an unbreakable date and time and keep to it. It may mean getting the kids out of the house, skipping the gym, letting the boys have their night out on their own, turning the cell phone off – some kind of sacrifice needs to be made. But it is worth it.

Enjoy it

This may seem unnecessary, but a surprising number of busy lovers put so much pressure on actually getting to have sex that they don’t enjoy it when they do. Make the evening relaxed and fun. Don’t worry about whether there will be an orgasm – or even necessarily if there will be penetration. Let the night be about getting back in touch with someone important and exploring their physical and emotional self. Go in without expectations and enjoy whatever comes along in whatever form.

Another of the more popular sex tips for men, busy or not: Be sure your penis is in good health. Regular application of a top notch penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) is perfect for this. When choosing a crème, see if its ingredients include a powerful antioxidant, such as alpha lipoic acid. Good antioxidants pack a punch that debilitates free radicals, knocking them out before they can create the oxidative stress that makes penis skin look aged and unhealthy. The crème should also include pantothenic acid, aka vitamin B5. Pantothenic acid is crucial for cell metabolism and the maintenance of healthy penile tissue.

Useful Tips For Preventing Colds

The immune system of a child is not fully developed and it is only natural for the youngsters to be more prone to suffering from certain medical conditions. The common cold is very easy to get and can potentially be very dangerous. Thus, it is best for you to take advance measures and protect your kids’ health rather than having to stuff them with medications that often have side effects.

One of the rules that all youngsters have to keep is to wash their hands when necessary. This simple action can effectively prevent the germs from reaching the inside of the body. You can easily establish a routine to help. Make your children wash their hands when they come home, after going to the bathroom, and before meals. It is essential to teach them to do this even before eating a small snack.

Another thing you can do is to always make your children change into dry clothes during the winter. This rule applies mostly to cold winter days when they little ones are covered with a lot of layers of clothing, but the rule applies to other seasons as well. It is also important for the little ones to change their socks so that their feet can stay warm even when they rest.

Encourage the little ones to drink a lot of fluids. This has a number of benefits for the kids’ health. All organs in the body work optimally and the toxins are flushed more effectively. It is best not to use forceful methods – just have more and different fruit juices in the fridge.

Exercising is another effective way for preventing your children from catching a cold. Some basic cardiovascular activity in the form of games for no more than half an hour a day can effectively boost immunity. It is also good for the kids’ health in general.

Dental Health for Kids Tips

The same way choosing pediatricians is important, it’s also vital to select the right dentists for children. Dental health for kids is a top priority indeed. Nice-looking teeth make a huge difference in the confidence of kids throughout their lives; it’s smart to get them started young. Parents should find dentists specially trained to handle the specific needs of kids to ensure quality pediatric dental care. When it comes to kids and their teeth, parents need to learn from experienced dentists about how to ensure the kids follow the guidelines for good dental hygiene. Kids need to understand the importance of good dental hygiene and visiting the dentist regularly; they shouldn’t fear going. Childhood phobia of visiting the dentist has been prevalent for a long time, however, thanks to the fast pace of technology, it no longer needs to be considered a fate worse than death. On the contrary, they should make going to the dentist an exciting adventure by treating it as a fun activity to learn something new. In exchange, the parents can offer up a healthy treat to teach them about avoiding too much candy and sugar to protect their young gums.

Effective Brushing

To capture their imagination, parents should make dental health for kids fun. Parents can allow the kids to pick their own fun toothbrushes with their favorite cartoon characters. They can also teach the importance of brushing their teeth twice a day, something that can influence the rest of their lives. Parents themselves should learn the proper brushing techniques, holding the brush at a 45-degree angle along the gum line and gently moving back and forth with short strokes. They can also learn how to brush the chewing surfaces with vertical up and down stokes to get the insides of the teeth. For toddlers, they can sing a song and rinse when the song is over. If the kids are reluctant to brush their teeth, allow them to bring a fun pal, their favorite stuffed animal will do the trick. It’s also important for kids to see their parents brushing their teeth twice a day. Kids are very impressionable and love to imitate adult behavior, assure them that brushing their teeth is something that makes them seem big and responsible. Also Parents can teach the young ones the value of drinking fluoridated water, dental health for kids makes all the difference.
