Health and Diet Tips - The Benefits of Drinking Water

glasses water

Drinking water is one of the most beneficial ways to help your body. Not only does it cleanse your body, but it replaces vital fluids that are lost and that your body requires. The human body is mostly made up of fluids and when you lose those fluids (through sweat glands and waste removal) that fluid needs to be replaced. You can get some of that fluid back through the foods you eat (try eating a juicy watermelon, for instance), but you still need to take in clear water to make your body and efficient machine.

Drinking water when you are trying to diet is especially important. Water helps to wash away and cleanse the fat and toxins out of your body. Water also helps you to feel 'fuller' and more satisfied so that you are not apt to eat as much food. When you have a craving, drinking a glass of water can help to curb it.

You should begin each day by drinking at least one glass of water. When you wake up in the morning, go to the bathroom and drink a glass of water before you do anything else. The water helps to get your digestive juices flowing and it lubricates the inside of your body. Drinking water at this stage will help you not eat as much at breakfast as well. Upon waking, your body may crave food because it has been working all night digesting food and using energy to do that. Therefore, you may tend to overeat at breakfast. Drinking a glass of water before you eat can help you with that. You can still have your coffee or tea, but have the water beforehand.

Again, drinking a glass of water before every meal will help you not eat as much. The water tends to fill you up so that you don't have the tendency to overeat. Besides, it has been recommended (and you have probably heard this a thousand times) that you drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. If you have one before every meal, that is half the battle won already.

Headaches Everyday Usually Means You Are Having Migraine

computer screen

Having headaches everyday equals a migraine but what is a migraine exactly? Well, a migraine is basically recurring headaches. But they can include other symptoms as well, such as sensitivity to light and noise, nausea, vomiting and dizziness.

So what causes a migraine then? usually its chemical changes happening in the brain that causes the attack. This starts a loop of changes, with the brain responding abnormally to signals from its own covering and blood vessels.

What about a cure? Researchers in Cambridge, UK compared the DNA of thousands of people having headaches everyday to those that were not. They found a genetic flaw could raise the odds of the disease by allowing glutamate which is a that transmits messages in the brain, to build up in the junctions between brain cells. A drug that could stop the build-up of glutamate could lead to a cure for the condition.

I have listed some migraine 'triggers' that may help you.

Turn Off iPhone:

Staring at your iPhone, computer screen or television for too long a period of time could bring on an attack. Glare can cause having headaches everyday. The brain has a threshold of how much glare it can withstand. If you suspect that this is a trigger for your migraine, it would be a good idea to put a screen up on your computer screen to reduce the glare. Watch less television and less iPhone too.

Should I Exercise?

Exercise has been noted as a trigger but research suggests moderate workouts can be therapeutic and even prevent am attack. There are few that find that exercise is a trigger. But this is quite rare. it doesn't mean you should stop exercising as this could effect your general health. There are preventative treatments available.

Heal Thyself - They Are Not Going To Save Us

Understand that

I am convinced there are some things that they do not want YOU to know about YOU. If you knew who you really are and what you are capable of, you would be healthier and happier -- and richer. Most of us, however, have adopted the idea that so-called experts know what is best for us. Therefore, we entrust our power, and our money, to the government, health care systems, educational systems, insurance companies, and various other agencies set up to protect us. They, however, are not going to save us.

Where Is the Cure?

Look around at what is happening in our world and our communities. How many years have we been marching, running, and cycling for "the cure?" Are we healthier? Why are there new diseases each year? Why are there more medications for these diseases, as well as the same old diseases year after year? The health statistics are more disturbing each year.

According to the Mental Health Association, 1 in 5 adults suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year.

In the U.S., 21.9 million adults and 8.9 million children under 18 have been diagnosed with asthma (Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics - AANMA).

Nearly 1 in 3 adults has high blood pressure (The American Heart Association).

More than 1,500 people die of cancer each day (American Cancer Society).

There has been a 500 percent increase in the number of prescriptions written for ADHD since 1991 (


We are being poisoned and suppressed, mentally and spiritually, by the chemicals in our food and water, the polluted air we breathe, and by the high levels of electromagnetic waves in our environment. Can it be that the well-educated men and women in positions of power in this country and in the world cannot figure out what needs to happen to turn these health statistics around? Could it be about money, power and control? Yes, they are taking your money, your power, and you are being controlled. They are not going to save us.

Health and Fitness

more energy

Some people hold back from getting fit because they feel self-conscious about their ability or body and want to find an activity they can do on their own, but organized classes and sports clubs can provide you with support and motivation, as well as a chance to make new friends.

If you're interested in football, hockey or other team sports, for example, many local clubs will have several teams of varying abilities, while there are plenty of aerobics or yoga classes specifically designed to cater for beginners.

You're never too old to learn to swim, or you can take classes to improve your technique if that's what's holding you back.

But many activities can be done by yourself, and require neither technical expertise nor much in the way of equipment or expense - just your willingness to give it a go.

Here are some of the best, easiest and most popular ways to start getting fit, as well as some suggestions for alternatives, plus organizations that get you started or put you in touch with a local club.


Most of us walk at some point each day but we do it far less than we used to - the government calculates there been a decline of more than 20 per cent in the number of miles walked since the mid-1980s.

But walking the simplest and cheapest of all exercises, and making it a regular activity and focusing on the intensity or distance covered can greatly increase your fitness.

Walking improves the condition of your heart and lungs (cardiovascular fitness) and works the muscles of the lower body. It's a weight-bearing activity, so it may improve bone density, yet it's also low impact, putting less stress on the joints than some other forms of exercise.

Heal Your Dog With Natural Dog Treatment

side effects

There has been a lot of speculation recently on how mainstream medical dog treatment affects the life span of your dog. This is because recent medical research suggests that certain medications can have harmful side effects. This is why more and more veterinarians are actually advising natural treatments for canine ailments and providing the knowledge you need to heal your dog naturally. For thousands of years before dogs were domesticated, they would search for herbs to make them feel better when they were feeling ill. It was a hardwired instinct that was very beneficial to them.

As dog owners, we love our dogs. They are not just a dog to us, they are family so therefore we want the best dog treatment for them. In the past, we thought that it meant regular veterinarian visits and the most expensive dog foods only found at a veterinarians office. However, this has changed. This is not to say that veterinarians did not know what they were talking about. This is not the case. Medicine is something that we learn more about every day. This is also true of veterinary medicine and modern dog treatment is changing. Veterinarians are realizing that a dog's body can not work properly when certain chemicals are introduced, as well as the fact that they are more susceptible to the adverse effects of chemicals in some medications.

Knowing how to heal your dog naturally can help increase the life span of your pet.

medical treatment

Medicines often have side effects. So it is understandable that we would want to make sure that our dogs are not subject to this. Even vaccinations are being re-thought by veterinarians. Whereas veterinarians used to recommend having dogs vaccinated annually, most vets advise now against this. Instead, it is recommended to provide these vaccinations every three to five years. A yearly vaccination routine has been found to cause blood diseases and in some rare instances, cancer.
