Soda and weight gain

Soft drinks are hard on your health.

Regular consumption of sodas leads to cavities, weight gain, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and scores of other health conditions.  Instead of juice or water, most children in some more developed countries are turning to soft drinks.when they are thirsty.  The excessive amounts of phosphorus in most soft drinks causes bone problems especially to women who are prone to osteoporosis.  Diet sodas are often just as bad or worst, often containing aspartame, an artificial sweetener that is linked to several types of cancer and is even believed to cause weight gain and increase the chances of developing diabetes.  Even the caramel color is now being found to have carcinogenic properties.  Next time you are thirsty, try brewing some green tea and add a touch of raw honey, or a glass of carrot juice with a shot of fresh squeezed orange and lemon juice mixed in for a toxin busting citris punch.  The health choices we make now determine if we can prevent heart disease, diabetes, and bone problems.  Remember that nutrition is nature's health insurance.

home made healing salad dressing recipe

Next time you chop up some fresh veggies for a salad, try putting together a home made dressing filled with invigorating and healing ingredients.

Everything we eat either contributes to our health or takes away from it.  Here is a good recipe for a delicious, natural, healing salad dressing:

2 cloves of garlic:  The allicin in garlic is a powerful antibiotic which even shows promise in use against serious infections such as tuberculosis and MRSA.  Garlic also detoxifies the body, and helps to lower the risk of heart disease.  Garlic was used by ancient Roman and Egyptian workers for improved physical stamina.

1 thumbnail sized slice of fresh ginger:  Ginger is a potent pain killer and has anti inflammatory effects.  Studies have shown that ginger can slow the growth of some cancer cells and even cause cell death in ovarian cancer cells.  Ginger can also be taken for motion sickness and heartburn.

1 lemon's worth of juice:  The citric acid in lemon juice can help to dissolve calcium deposits, kidney stones, and gallstones.  Lemons contain vitamin C, the detox vitamin, which sweeps away free radicals that can cause damage to tissue in the body.  The hesperetin found in lemons can help with allergy symptoms.

1/4 cup olive oil:  Monounsaturated fats contained in olive oil help the body to manage cholesterol.  Extra virgin olive oil triggers apoptosis, or programmed cell death, in cancer cells.  A chemical compound present in olive oil possesses anti inflammatory properties.

  1. Finely mince garlic and ginger.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Add to your favorite salad or grilled veggies.
