Excerpt fromThe 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth

By Jonny Bowden

According to C. Leigh Broadhurst, PhD, in her excellent book on diabetes, the best way to use cinnamon to help lower blood sugar and improve type 2 diabetes is to put 3 rounded tablespoons of ground cinnamon and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of baking sodea (less if sodium is a problem for you) in a 32-ounce (quart) canning jar. Fill the jar with boiling water and let it steep at room temperature till it's cool. Strain or decant the liquid, discard the grounds, put a lid on the jar, and stick it in the fridge. Drink one 8-ounce cup of the tea four times per dy. After one to three weeks you can drop down to one or two cups a day. Type 1 diabetics can use it too, but should start with only one or two cups per day and increase by one cup per week, monitoring blood sugar closely.

Did you know that 70-80%  of your immune system resides in your gut, your G.I. Tract. Humans wouldn't be alive without the good bacteria that resides in our body. We have a symbiotic relationship.

 

Probiotic foods which are known as fermented foods (they are cultured a certain way) and probiotic supplements are needed to assist the good bacteria to do their work in your body. 

 

Here's 5 probiotic foods that you may want to try. Your bacteria will thank you for it. 

 

Just know that most commercial bought yogurts are loaded with sugar which negates any benefits. You can easily make your own nut yogurts or dairy yogurts. Recipes abound on the internet. Kefir is another fermented food, not mentioned in the article. There are water-kefirs and dairy kefirs.

Fermentiere Lebensmittel haben eine jahrtausendalte Tradition und galten schon immer als gesund. Sie sind gut verdaulich und steigern die Bioverfügbarkeit von Nahrungsmittelbestandteilen. Sie halten sich länger und entwickeln ihren ureigenen Geschmack. Sauerkraut, Sauerteig, Joghurt, gereifter Käse, Wein, Bier, die Würzpaste Miso, Tempeh, Essig, Tee -  überall sind Bakterien aktiv!

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, February 3, 1:23 PM

Excellent helpful information from Dr Mark Hyman on stress. Please do read the entire article.

 

Stress is as Dr Hyman says, all in our subconscious minds from our thoughts.. This curator has been for many years following the adage "change your words, change your results" and it works.

 

You can worry yourself into a real chronic illness. Of course we can be concerned, just not to the state of being helpless.

 

These steps work time and again.

 

1. Movement - getting up and standing, exercising, walking, running, jogging, dancing, dancing while cleaning the house with the vacuum cleaner (don't laugh - it works), swimming, hiking, camping, playing with your children, yoga and tai chi.

 

2. Breathing - Taking deep breaths has a biochemical affect on resetting the stress response. This technique is for women and men. Take a deep breath and let out a pleasurable "HA" sound, not AH. It's a different vibration in the body. Doing this as many times in a day as you need, begins to release oxytocin, the natural hormone in your body, which once released begins to evoke  feelings of bonding and trust reduces anxiety and promotes a sense of calmness and security. It transforms your body from the "flight or flight" response mode to a state of "creation and collaboration".

 

3. Taking a bath - this relaxes your muscles and is great just before bed. Using Epsom salts which contain magnesium, the relaxation mineral and baking soda plus drops of your favorite essential oil will put you into a state of bliss.

 

4  Sleep - getting a full night's rest is essential for a healthy body, mind, and spirit.

 

5. "Change your words, change your results - thinking differently opens up solutions to solve your problems.

Heidi Cohen's curator insight, February 4, 11:31 AM

We all experience stress. Here is one simple step that helps me. Let go of what no longer serves you. Breathe, connect your feet to the earth and as you exhale, let go, dissolve, release the tension outward. Breathe in and out! Think and do from what brings you joy. Entertain Yourself, pleasing Yourself, connecting with Yourself, being Yourself, enjoying Yourself, loving Yourself. Ignite your heart with love!
