Carbohydrate restriction is a proven way to stimulate weight loss; removing foods like bread, pasta, cereals, rice, muffins and other grain products from your diet for a period of time assists with “retraining” and improving your body’s response to insulin, the ultimate key to any effective weight loss plan.
In this anti-bacterial age, most people would never recognize bacteria as a good thing. But, in the right places and amounts, strains of beneficial bacteria exist that are valuable to our health and wellness. These beneficial bacteria, also called probiotics, are found mostly in our digestive tract and actually colonize within our systems just days after birth – especially if we were breastfed.

For reasons of vanity, obviously, but then also because it’s something that you feel you have absolutely no control over. This problem affects millions of women leading to depression, anxiety, a loss of self esteem and withdrawal from friends, family and daily activities. Losing your hair can mean losing your vitality and lust for life—it’s never something that should be taken lightly by your health care provider. Any sudden hair loss should be taken seriously. Some physicians might say: “It’s because you’re getting older” or “It’s because of your hormones,” but if you think you’re losing hair, your physician had better listen, because most likely, you are.

The holiday season is a wonderful time to relax, unwind and spend some quality time with the people we care about. With all the festivities of company get-togethers, dinner parties for friends and family and trips to all-inclusive resorts, it’s not easy to stay on track and always eat healthy. Being conscious of our food choices and making wise choices, is the best way to avoid over-indulging and to keep our weight and health in the best shape it can be for the new year.
