A Lack of Oxygen can cause:
Circulation problems, Memory loss, Irrational behavior Irritability ,
Poor Digestion ,Muscle aches & pains, Lung problems, Dizziness ,
Depression, Body weakness.
The body needs Adequate Oxygen for:
Energy Digestion Removing toxins Fueling the muscles Metabolizing fat
& carbohydrates, Maintaining a healthy immune system , Removing
viruses, parasites, and bacteria Keeping the heart pumping & healthy
Helping the lungs to breathe.
According to Dr. Otto Warburg, winner of the Nobel Prize for cancer
research. “Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of
normal oxygen respiration of the body’s cells by an anaerobic cell
respiration.” Otherwise, there is not enough oxygen at the cellular
In addition, an insufficient supply of oxygen to the tissues, is a
major cause of our worst diseases, including heart disease.
So what can you do to increase the oxygen level to your cells and
provide your body with the oxygen it needs for optimum health? Here
are six suggestions:
1. Get more physical exercise
2. Eat dark-colored berries
3. Eat plenty of green, leafy vegetables
4. Avoid trans fats
5. Take oxygen-enhancing products, such as Cell food & other oxygen
6. Take food-based antioxidants, such as in wild blueberries.
Of course, if you are under a doctor’s care and taking prescription
medicines, you would be wise to check with him or her before making
any significant changes in diet or exercise.
The benefits of a high protein diet do not end here. Individual
protein components of such a diet, when aptly chosen, can have other
advantages as well. Dietary supplements
containing proteins like whey
and casein come highly recommended. Casein is a milk protein and has
the ability to form a gel or clot in the stomach. The ability to form
this clot makes it very efficient in nutrient supply. The clot is able
to provide a sustained, slow release of amino acids into the blood
stream, sometimes lasting for several hours (Boirie et al. 1997). A
slow sustained release of nutrients matches well with the limited
amount of insulin that can be produced by the pancreas in diabetes. A
protein supplement containing casein can thus increase the amount of
energy assimilated from every meal and, at the same time, reduce the
need for pharmacological interventions to control blood sugar.
Whey proteins and caseins also contain
“casokinins” and “lactokinins’, (FitzGerald) which have been found to
decrease both systolic and diastolic blood pressure in hypertensive
humans (Seppo). In addition, whey protein forms bioactive amine in the
gut that promotes immunity. Whey protein contains an ample supply of
the amino acid cysteine. Cysteine appears to enhance glutathione
levels, which has been shown to have strong antioxidant properties
antioxidants mop up free radicals that induce cell death and play a
role in aging.
Another risk factor for heart disease is diabetes, a chronic disease
of insulin deficiency or resistance. Type 2 diabetes, the most common
type, is associated with obesity and may be prevented by maintaining
ideal body weight through exercise and balanced nutrition.
Tips For Controlling Risk of Heart Disease Stop Smoking .The effect of
smoking on your lungs can cause almost every other medical condition.
Routine physical activity is highly recommended and helpful in
controlling obesity. Try to perform 30 minutes of moderate physical
activity every day. Fast walking is one of the best way to prevent
heart disease. If you can lose even a small amount of weight, five
pounds for example, it may have a positive effect on lipid levels and
blood pressure preventing heart disease. Limit Alcohol Consumption
,Limit daily alcohol intake to three ounces or fewer to prevent heart
disease. People who drink large amounts of alcohol six to eight
ounces a day tend to have higher blood pressure.
In fact, no large clinical trial has yet been published on the
preparation of Momordica charantia (bitter melon). The manufacturers
of bitter melon teas, capsules and tablets themselves are not claiming
healing benefits for their products. They market them only as
supplements. Are they really good substitutes for the anti-diabetic
drugs that are available in the market? Bitter melon should be
considered an addition in the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.
It could probably reduce the patients intake of anti diabetic drugs.
It should not however, be regarded as a stand-alone medicine. Also,
diabetics who want to try bitter melon need not to spend money on the
teas, tablets or capsules. They can cultivate or buy the plant from
the market and prepare it themselves.
To prepare bitter melon extract, the following steps should be
1. Wash and finely chop the leaves.
2. Add 6 tablespoons of the chopped leaves in 2 glasses of water.
3. Boil it for 15 min. in an uncovered pot.
4. Cool down and strain.
5. Drink 1/3 cup of it 3x a day.
Alternately, bitter melon tops can be steamed and eaten (1/2 cup 2x a
