Stephanie Heath

In the last year I’ve had two whiplash injuries, and was left with intense neck pain. The pain made it difficult to read, lift things, turn my head, or even sleep. After MCU Therapy, I’m now back to work and
able to do the things I enjoy.

Learning What Makes Up a Good Diet

There is more to a good diet than just watching what food you eat or even how you eat. There is a mental and emotional side to a diet as well. If you find that you are not mentally simulated by your diet or exercise routines, you will quickly become bored with your diet and lose your commitment to it. It is easier to fail when taking on a new diet than it is to succeed, so finding a diet that can keep your interest is crucial.

The physical benefits of a healthy diet have obvious benefits of a longer, healthier life. It also helps provide you with the body you have been dreaming about, but that is not all it can do for you. It can help increase your energy levels as well as general stamina. This can be applied to so many different aspects of a man’s life that it is really up to your own imagination.

When changing your dietary habits, it is important to remember that there is an emotional side to dieting, even for men. This is commonly associated with women but it can affect men just as easily. Some men can become depressed or distant when changing their diet, as they begin to realize just how many of their favorite foods and activities they may have to give up.

It is important to learn what types of diets will work with your body and mind. You need to find a good balance of interest, food, exercise, and freedom to make the diet successful, it is not as easy as deciding to start a diet, there is far more that goes into it than that. It is important to figure out what is going to work for you, and those around you. The last thing you want to do is start a new diet and find that you are not able to maintain your lifestyle. It is human nature to pick the acceptable lifestyle of our peers than it is to stand alone, this is increasingly true when it comes to our friends and our hobbies.

Men's Corner

Homeopathic Ways to Avoid Prostate Problems

More men are turning to homeopathic solutions for various health concerns, including their prostate. It is important to men to have a strong physical body, and in order to obtain that body you have to treat it with the proper respect. Essential vitamins and minerals that lack from your daily diet can create deficiencies within your body and make you more susceptible numerous health risks. Flaxseed oil, for example is a great source of omega 3 fatty acid, which is important for brain function and brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Instead of a multivitamin, try using a whole-food mineral supplement. These are created from concentrated food sources that can make up the differences in our daily diets. They can make sure that our body is getting everything that it needs on a regular basis. You can also take these in conjunction with a multivitamin if you wish to further the effects.

You can also add green tea into your daily diet as well. Studies have proven that green tea extract inhibits the growth of prostate cancer. When made a regular part of your daily diet, green tea can be a very powerful solution for prostate health. You should consume 2 to 3 cups of green tea per day. If you are drinking refrigerated beverages that contain green tea, make sure it provides you anywhere from 100-750mg of green tea extract. If the green tea is mixed with black tea, you will want to be on the higher end of these intact values, as black tea will lower the effectiveness of the green tea.

The importance on drinking water for overall body health

Water. It seems like there is a million products that have tried, but it can not be replaced. It's the purest, oldest element the human body has ever used for replenishment. Really though, how important is it to drink water? Let me tell you.

How much of it is in my body?

Let's start with the brain, it might have a little water, right? Wrong. It is almost 75% water. Your heart? nearly 80%. Starting to get the idea? I'll keep going and keep surprising you. Your skin is compiled of about 72% water.  Your blood is the highest at 83%, muscles holding about 76%  followed up by your bones that are only 22% water. Surprised? I was! Water is clearly a major part of your genetic make-up. 

How often do I need it? 

You can literally survive weeks without food. It won't be fun, but hey your still kickin. Water, however, mayyyybbee 7 days. Most people give up on that dream house around 5 days. Game over. Just 5 days. Not to mention after about 3 days you will probably want to pull the trigger yourself due to the side effects of dehydration.

How much do I get rid of in a day? 

Your body sweats, urinates, and breathes out about 3 quarts of water per day! Almost all processes in the human body require water, so at the rate we lose it and use it, we need to dedicate time to replenish our body. 

Water actually protects your body.

A well hydrated body helps prevent other issues! Water actually helps keep dirt and grime out of our eyes. It lubricates our joints and prevents stiffness and aches. It helps keep our mouth, tongue and lips moist. It also helps your body break down and digest foods.

Okay I'm done writing! Hopefully this helps you understand why your parents always pushed water on you! Grab a glass!
