WHY YOU SHOULD KNOW YOUR LDL PARTICLE NUMBER?

WE ARE SURVIVORS FROM THE MOMENT OF DIAGNOSIS
Laboratory testing plays a very important role in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of any disease in patients. Generally, 70% of the information needed for a correct diagnosis & health management is in your blood. This data is critical for not just treating the disease, but for wellness & prevention as well. An estimated 70% of all decisions on diagnosis & treatment, hospital admission & discharge of a patient are based on the outcome of laboratory investigations.

Did you know that your blood cells regenerate every 120 days? This allows you to quickly measure the progress you are making from lifestyle & nutritional modifications.
Approximately 41% of the people who experience a heart attack will die from it!

Cardiovascular disease is one of the most misdiagnosed and mistreated conditions in medicine; 50% of heart attack patients have normal HDL & LDL levels. That means we need to look beyond HDL/LDL levels.

HOW DO ANTIOXIDANTS KEEP YOU HEALTHY?

At any given moment, millions of processes are taking place within your bodies. 

These processes include when your immune system causes inflammation--while fighting off bacteria with the pollutants, pesticides, and cigarette smoke detoxifying your body--OR when the body cells use glucose to create energy. 

When this happens your body naturally undergoes something called oxidation resulting in the production of free radicals. 

These free radicals cause ageing, heart diseases, cell damage & death, and that’s a pretty serious statement and conclusion! 



What is oxidative stress?

Your body is under constant attack from oxidative stress. 
L
By wrong lifestyle choices, you make billions of free radicals in your body resulting in oxidative stress. 

This can also increase when you are physically and/or emotionally stressed. 

Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants (too many free radicals and too few antioxidants). 

It is a condition that results when your…

WHY RAW FOOD IS THE KEY TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH?

The importance of adding raw food is extremely beneficial when it comes to healing and prevention of diseases. 

The inner lining of your cells got ultra-thin sensitive cells called endothelial cells or endothelium. 

The function of these endothelial cells is to regulate blood pressure and blood flow. 

When these endothelial cells are in good condition, they allow communication between cells and they allow the absorption of vital oxygen and nutrient rich blood to your cells, and that’s the foundation good health and good immunity. 


The enemy called free radicals!

Your body consists of billions of molecules with atoms that contain electrons; the electrons inside the atoms get upset when they are not in pairs and these molecules with upset electrons are called free radicals. 

The increase of free radicals in your body causes oxidative stress. 

With wrong food choices, inactivity, stress, pollution, and smoking a lot of free radicals get into your body and disturb the bonding of electrons within…

LOSE WEIGHT BY CHEWING RIGHT!

Chewing your food the right way has a lot of magic. Right from losing weight and to make sure the nutrient that you eat are completely absorbed into your system.  The number one cause of bloating, flatulence, indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea, and acidity could be due to the way you chew your food.



Well, there is a reason why we are born with teeth and there is a reason why we have saliva in our mouth that keeps generating all the time. 

When you start chewing, your teeth breaks down the food into smaller particles which when enters your stomach get digested and goes into the intestines. It’s in your intestine that all the nutrition and the nutrients from the food that you are eating gets absorbed into your body. But when you allow undigested or large particles of food pass through your stomach and intestines, you are actually destroying most of the nutrients in the food you eat. Add to that, a lot of these food particles get into your blood causing a host of health problems.

The dige…

WHY IS IT BETTER TO SIP WATER?

As there is art of eating, there is an art of drinking water as well. Human body consists of about 37.2 trillion cells and 75-80% of these cells live in water. 

They require water for strong immunity, metabolic activity, weight loss, and cellular function. 

The way we drink water is extremely important to our health. We hear everywhere the benefits of drinking water and we see people trying to drink more water, but there is a way to drink water.


Sit and sip your water slowly!

When you sip your water slowly, it mixes with saliva. 

Your saliva is alkaline in nature while your stomach is acidic in nature for all the right reasons because your stomach requires a certain amount of acid to digest your food and that’s great, but too much acid with excess amount of food or bad food is a cause for worry. 

So, we want our saliva get into our stomach so that the alkaline effect of saliva can stabilise excess acid in the stomach. One way to get the saliva into your stomach is the way we drink water.
