Preventing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Preventing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Many of us spend hours a day typing away on a computer keyboard, which can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. Here are two exercises you can do daily to ward off any carpal tunnel symptoms.

1) Bend your elbows, bring your hands up in the air to about head level, and rotate your wrists in circles. Circle first to the right and then to the left. Do this for a total of two minutes.

2) Clench your fists gently and then spread your fingers wide open. Repeat ten times.

These exercises are most helpful when repeated frequently through the day.

TAE KWON DO: KOREAN MARTIAL ARTS

I bumped into an old acquaintance the other day. She looked great, and I barely recognized her. She had lost so much weight. She credited her great achievement to taking Tae Kwon Do classes, which she began a year and a half ago. She explained that Tae Kwon Do means the art of fist and foot, and it involves a lot of kicking. She loves the results of her newly flexible body and commented it’s a fabulous leg, waist, and butt workout.

She went on to tell me how the classes helped her with stress related to work and frustrations in general, and how she is so much happier these days. She also has more energy and feels stronger.

My friend was such an inspiration. I don’t need to lose weight, but who
couldn’t use a bit more flexibility and a firmer body?

I might just check out a class.

EXERCISE: PROTECTS YOU FROM FREE RADICALS

EXERCISE: PROTECTS YOU FROM FREE RADICALS

We all know antioxidants such as vitamin C and E have been touted as protection from free radicals-molecules that damage cells and tissue and contribute to disease.

Aerobic exercise contributes to the protection from free radicals as well, but recently I learnt that lifting weights is also a weapon against free radicals.

Researchers tested 62 people with an average age of 68. Those who lifted weights three times a week for six months showed a lower incidence of free radical damage.

The group that did no exercise had a 13% increase in damage, which is expected as you age, while the exercising group had an increase of only 2%.

It looks like it’s time for me to dust off my old weights.

Chia Seeds: The Ancient Power Food

Chia Seeds: The Ancient Power Food

Chia seeds are an ancient fuel source used for centuries by two powerful tribes, the Aztecs and Mayans. The Aztecs would traditionally consume chia for extra energy and stamina before going to battle or before a big hunt.

The super seeds contain an abundance of life-enhancing nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, as well as neuro protective antioxidants which produce cell membranes that are more flexible and efficient. This improves brain function, such as memory and concentration.

Chia seeds nutritional components also include healthy fats, proteins and fiber, as well as high levels of calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, copper, niacin and zinc. Perfect for healthy blood sugar, sustained energy and a powerful combatant for diabetes, heart disease and healthy metabolism.

Optimize your health by adding two to four tablespoons of this superfood into soups, cereals, smoothies, vegetable dishes and baked goods. Chia Seeds are easy to find in your local health food store or in a quality supermarket.

Natural Beauty Tips – Noise Pollution and Hearing Loss

Noise Pollution and Hearing Loss

We live in noisy cities, we use noisy appliances, we play with noisy games and blast loud music. All these activities take a toll on our hearing.

This aural assault can initially cause the loss of high-frequency hearing that’s registered by the sensory cells nearest our eardrums where they take the worst beatings. We don’t regenerate these cells, so once they’re gone, they don’t come back.

Noise can raise levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that can among other things, raise your blood pressure.

You might be surprised to learn that just 30 minutes of exposure to sound reaching 90 decibels – the range of some leaf blowers, lawn mowers and motorcycles, can irreversibly injure the sound-transmitting cells in your ears. The louder the sound, the less time it takes to do damage.

30 minutes or more exposure of the following can cause hearing loss:

  • 110 decibels – Concerts, Sports events, Car horn from 3 feet
  • 100 decibels – Train, Subway, Motorcycle, MP4 player at full volume
  • 90 decibels – Power tools, Blender, Blow dryer

Unlikely to cause hearing loss:

  • 80 decibels – Alarm clocks, garbage disposal
  • 80 decibels – MP4 player at three quarters volume
  • 80 decibels – Truck going 40 MPH from 50 feet
  • 70 decibels – Traffic and a vacuum cleaner

Solutions to Prevent Hearing Loss:

  • Shop for quieter appliances and run noisy appliances at different times
  • Use noise canceling headphones or ear plugs
  • Solid doors block more noise than hollow core ones
  • Carpeting, area rugs and draperies absorb noise. The thicker the better
  • Seal gaps with adhesive backed weather stripping around doors and windows

Natural Beauty Tips – Post Holiday Tune Up

Post Holiday Tune Up

Wishing you a Happy New Year.  Here are a few simple tips to release the post holiday stress while supporting a stress free and fabulous 2017.
  1. When you come home from work, prepare a relaxing cup of chamomile tea.  In a dark room sip the tea with your legs elevated and absolutely no disturbances.  This ritual helps you to decompress from the day. Time permitting allow a few minutes sitting still with your eyes closed.  Then you’re good to go for your evening activities.
  2. Rag doll stretch – bend over forward as if you were going to touch your toes.  As your arms are hanging suspended in midair inhale and exhale to the count of 10.  Then, slowly come up. This exercise will make you feel relaxed and grounded.
  3. Self Shiatsu shoulder massage – Making a fist with your right hand, pound in an up and down motion along your shoulder blades in 3 different spots. Repeat 5-7 times. Then switch sides, using your left fist to pound your right shoulder.

A great de-stresser!  And this massage will make you feel more alert as well.

Natural Beauty Tips – GET A BETTER NIGHT’S SLEEP

GET A BETTER NIGHT’S SLEEP

Many of us suffer from insomnia; the inability to fall asleep easily, repeatedly waking up during the night, and difficulty falling back asleep. Since our body repairs itself at night, getting a good night’s sleep is imperative for good health.

Here are some natural solutions to combat insomnia:

1. It’s difficult to fall asleep if you are too wound up, so a few minutes of stretching will help remove stress from your body. End with a few slow, deep breaths.

2. Take a hot bath or even just a foot bath to relax. Dip your feet in hot water up to your ankles for at least 10 minutes. Foot baths draw blood away from the head, aiding sleep.

3. Don’t use TVs, computers, smartphones or backlit e-readers for 90 minutes before retiring. The blue light emitted by these devices suppresses the sleep-promoting hormone melatonin. A study at Harvard found that people who read from a screen before bed found it harder to wake up in the morning and feel alert, even when they slept for a sufficient amount of time.

4. Try an herbal remedy such as passion fruit (Passiflora incarnnata). It’s a relaxant and antispasmodic. Another choice is Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), which restores nervous system function and helps with sedation. Both can be purchased at a good health food store.

Comments Off on Natural Beauty Tips – Sauerkraut: Lactic Acid Fermentation of Cabbage for Good Health

Natural Beauty Tips – Sauerkraut: Lactic Acid Fermentation of Cabbage for Good Health

Sauerkraut: Lactic Acid Fermentation of Cabbage for Good Health

The basis of good health is good nutrition. Over the years, there has been a growing awareness of the value of simple, traditional foods and their health-enhancing properties. A good example is naturally fermented sauerkraut. Archaeological findings have shown that people fermented plant food and cabbage even during the hunter-gatherer stage of human development. In Korea, a meal is not complete without kimchi.

The health benefits of friendly bacteria:

Lactic acid bacteria prevent decay in our bowels by breaking down foods, making them more digestible. Acetylcholine, which is produced during fermentation, stimulates the peristaltic movement of the intestines. It also assists the circulation of the blood and prevents constipation by promoting bowel movements. Lactic acid-fermented products maintain the balance of acids and alkalis, strengthening the acidity of the gastric juice when hydrochloric acid production lags, and reducing acidity when production is up. Rich in enzymes, lactic acid also encourages the secretions of all the digestive organs.

For the greatest benefits of sauerkraut’s healing properties, make sure that when you purchase store-bought sauerkraut it has not been heated or pasteurized. Otherwise, the healing properties such as the lactic acid bacteria, enzymes and vitamin C have been cooked out. For good health, eat 1 tablespoon of sauerkraut with meals, anywhere from 3-7 times per week.

Some of the best organic brands to choose in the health food store are:
  • Real Pickles
  • Hawthorne Valley
  • Liv Cultured
  • Farmhouse Culture
  • Deep Root
Here’s to your health!
