GET PLENTY OF FRESH AIR AND EXERCISE

The body needs exercise to stimulate and strengthen the digestive organs and facilitate digestion, and the fires of digestion need plenty of oxygen " fuel". If your body is sluggish and lazy, your digestion and overall health will suffer. One of the best cures for constipation is to get plenty of exercise every day: at least go for a daily walk in the open air.

DO NOT EAT VERY HOT OR VERY COLD FOODS

Too hot foods will overheat the body and interfere with the action of the digestive enzymes, many of which can function only within a limited range of temperature. They may damage the mucous membranes which line the digestive tract as well.
Let the food cool a little before eating. Too cold foods and beverages, on the other hand, constrict the intestinal canal, making digestion more difficult, and also harmfully affect the throat. Cold foods may constrict the delicate respiratory tubes leading from the nose into the lungs, making them more sensitive: Sometimes the shock of drinking cold drinks can trigger an attack of asthma or other allergy.

Drink Plenty Of Water Everyday


Water is nature's cleaner which keeps the body pure and free from poisons and waste.A healthy person should drink about three to four liters of water or other liquids a day; a diseased person, especially one with skin disease, should drink four to five liters.(If you are not accustomed to drinking much water, do not start drinking so much all at once; rather gradually increase your daily intake). Drink a little bit a time, a 1/2 glass or a glass, many times a day, but not too much with meals, otherwise the digestive juices will be too diluted and digestion impaired. Add a little lemon and salt ( or honey) to the water you drink.

How to Eat

Doctors repeatedly warn us not to overeat, for over-eating stresses the entire digestive system and prevents the proper digestion of food. The half- digested food then forms a putrid, decaying mass in the body and poisons our blood stream, and ultimately weakens the entire system. Actually, how you eat is as important as what you eat. If you eat hurriedly, or in a tired, disturbed, or unhappy state of mind, your food will not be digested properly and all it's nutrition will be lost. When the mind is upset, the entire body becomes upset as well. Photographs of the stomachs of individuals in a state of anger show the stomach to be swollen,rigid and red, with no pliability or natural peristaltic motion. Obviously digestion is impossible in such a state of mind and body. When we eat in a disturbed mood, not only is the food not digested properly, but this undigested food produces very harmful acids and toxins in our body-it would have been better not to have eaten at all.
For this reason you should try to eat as much as possible in a peaceful mood, in serene and happy surroundings; avoid noisy and unpleasant restaurants. It is advisable to pause in silence for a moment before eating to calm the mind and remember that the food is actually, in its essence, pure consciousness. Then eat with others in a joyous atmosphere, and remember-laughter aids digestion!!!

Being happy with what you have


Americans-even those who have not had an "easy" life- should be able to come up with things to be happy about and grateful for: A family who loves them; friends who laugh at their stupid jokes; the freedom to catch a movie or play or read a good book; a great singing voice, sense of humor, or full head of hair; the fact that they live in a country not at war with any other country. Financially speaking, American's are pretty spoiled. Two-thirds of the people in the world have a standard of living that is a mere 20 percent of the U.S. average. Think about that, In other words, the average American is five times better off financially than two out of every three people in the world.
Be happy with what you have and content with the things that you can't change.I know financially wealthy people who have all the material goods they want yet are emotionally poor. Likewise, I know people who are struggling financially and are quite happy, contented, and emotionally wealthy.

My husband was right about eating those vegetables


Not only is meat expensive,but it is coming under increasing scrutiny as bad for your health. In a landmark report entitled " The Surgeon General's Report on Nutrition and Health" ( produced under former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, M.D) reliance on a meat- and dairy-based diet- with it's fat and cholesterol-was found to be the cause of the majority of premature deaths in the United States,and in the Philippines. In fact, five out of the top ten causes of death- heart disease, certain types of cancer, stokes,diabetes, and arteriosclerosis- are caused largely by American's and also Filipinos poor diets. The people eat mainly grains, beans,and vegetables and have a significantly lower rates of heart diseases and diet-related cancers, such as cancer of the prostate and colon.
Meat is very expensive, so the less meat you eat, the more money you save. Even if you choose to merely reduce your meat consumption rather than eliminate it.If you decide to eliminate meat from your diet, don't try to shift from burgers,porkchops, and meat loaf to tofu and sprouts overnight.Make changes in your diet gradually. For example,I first gave up pork, beef, and lamb but I still eat some chicken,fish, and low-fat dairy products.

Buying something, making a list

When I buy something or I go to the supermarket. I make a list of what I need to buy.Everything looks tempting, and you may wind up with a groaning cart full of steaks, turkeys, watermelons, cheese wheels and ice cream sandwiches.A rule is to always make a list. It doesn't matter whether the list is on a matchbook cover, a dry cleaner receipt, or the back of your hand. You need a battle plan, or you may wind up with two gallons of clorox, a six-pack of soda, and a bag of Oreos-and nothing for dinner. Write down recipe ingredients on your list,too. Nothing is more frustrating than following a recipe and finding a the last minute that you are missing something important,like the main ingredient.

Soybean control in diabetes


Soybean is not only versatile, it is highly nutritious. One of the greatest nutritional assets of the soybean is it's high protein content. Protein, as we all know is that substance in food necessary for buiding, repairing, and maintaining body tissues.It is interesting to know that some research findings show that soyfoods may help with blood sugar control in diabetes.Soy fiber may help slowing absorption of sugars. Legumes, especially soybeans have avery low glycemic index and are valuable foods to include in a diabetic diet. We need to watch what we eat. There are lots of people have a diabetic problem. My husband is diabetic, he needs to watch his blood sugar all the time.
