Does Alpha Probiotics Really work – Read Customer Reviews…

Alpha Probiotics Review I struggled for nearly four years to find a probiotic supplement that would work for me. I spent a really long time trying anything and everything I could find on the shelf at Walgreens, CVS, Target – everywhere. I thought the issue was my body. Like many people, I thought I just had to find the product that worked best with my system, but little did I know I was spending hundreds of dollars of products that just didn’t work. After talking to a friend in medical school, I learned a lot more about what to look

Knowing how to quickly prepare healthy and easy meals is key for being consistent with your healthy eating habits. But sometimes meal prepping can be really time-consuming if you’re making a lot of recipes each week or it can become repetitive if you’re using the same basic ingredients. And cooking everything from scratch, even if it’s a simple meal, may still be a little too much work after a busy day. So I use a hybrid approach that makes it easier to cook healthy and easy meals in about 15 minutes! (Seriously, most of my meals take 15 minutes to make!)  And, you don’t have to eat the same meal multiple times throughout the week! I’m going to walk you through my entire process for making healthy and easy meals that you can make all week without getting bored.  Using Meal Components to Make Cooking Easy and Fun Meal components are interchangeable food items that go with everything else you cook — basically, it’s a meal planning mix and match. If you’re familiar with meal planning or it’s already part of your life, then I’m sure you’ve seen some meal planning systems out there that rely on making full recipes ...

David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. To be sure, we look at a wide variety medical issues on The Empowering Neurologist. But one event that will affect us all is dying. Here in America we have experienced the medicalization of death, treating death as an enemy to be fought and defeated at all costs. Indeed, the actual process of dying, the patient’s experience during the process, is completely ignored in medical training. Our guest today is Dr. Christopher Kerr, author of the new book, Death is But a Dream.  Dr. Kerr is a hospice doctor. All of his patients die. Yet he has cared for thousands of patients who, in the face of death, speak of love and grace. Beyond the physical realities of dying are unseen processes that are remarkably life-affirming. These include dreams that are unlike any regular dream. Described as “more real than real,” these end-of-life experiences resurrect past relationships, replay meaningful events, and display themes of love and forgiveness; they restore life’s meaning and mark the transition from distress to comfort and acceptance. Drawing on interviews with over 1,400 patients and more than a decade of ...
Reader’s question from the SuppVersity’s Instagram page: “I wonder if just having a small serving of beans before a meal would have good effects also. Red velvet, black, etc.” – Johan Those of you who already follow the SuppVersity on Facebook will have seen the news item (in the infographic section) about the latest bean-carb-blocker study. Some may even have seen that there were a lot of comments, comments in which you repeatedly found the question whether, instead of the stupid bean extract, one wouldn’t be able to simply eat a bunch of beans before or with the meal and see the same potentially weight-reducing effects that were reported in the study. Well, it turns out it is not that easy to find an answer to this question – especially not one that is workable, i.e. “eat exactly X grams of THIS type of beans at timepoint T to improve your glucose metabolism by Z and lose BETA kg of weight in GAMMA weeks.” What I could come up with, however, is the following review of relevant studies and data and a bottom line in which I will at least try to formulate the aforementioned workable answer to the question ...

By Leo Babauta My Zen teacher Susan recently told a group of her students at the end of a Zen meditation retreat, “We’re all monastics now.” In this global pandemic, we’re in an era of isolation, retreat. We’re also in an era of heightened uncertainty. This can be a terrible thing, and drive us to loneliness and distraction … or it can be a time of practice, reflection, and deepening. We can choose to see ourselves as monks deepening into the stillness of a monastery. It’s our choice. If you’re staying home these days, it can be a time of endless Internet distractions … or you can open to the opportunity to use the beautiful solitude for meditation, reading, writing, contemplation, journaling. It can be a time of practice. If you’re feeling the anxiety of the moment, it can be a time of near breakdown and freneticism … or it can be a moment to slow down and be still. Practice mindfully with whatever feelings are coming up. You can go to the latest memes and viral videos (which are fun!) … or you can find a text and study it. You can get caught up in frustration with how ...

Have you ever felt like creating healthy eating or lifestyle habits felt like another thing that you needed to check off on your to-do list? You know, when you have those feelings of, “Ugh, I have to cook dinner and I really don’t want to.” Or maybe, “I just want to curl up on the couch with my dog and Netflix, but I have to go to the gym.” We all have those moments from time to time — we’re humans and that’s okay! But if you’re feeling this way every day or most days, then you may have this idea that your healthy habits are just another to-do list item. Workout Eat veggies Meditate Even for those of you who love lists (looking at you Virgos!), this can really take away from the purpose of practicing healthy habits and can make it much more challenging for you to stay motivated and follow through every day. A healthy lifestyle isn’t meant to be another list of things to check-off in your day. Yes, a healthy lifestyle starts with small daily practices that add up and transition into long-term habits. Having healthy habits that support your wellbeing and make you feel your best is just the first layer — the true ...

David Perlmutter M.D. – Empowering Neurologist: The food, the facts, the science to control your genetic destiny. According to the CDC, 1 in 12 children in America suffers from asthma. That translates to approximately 6 million children. To be clear, asthma is a serious problem not only because asthmatic attacks can be life-threatening, but in the long-term, asthma has been associated with permanent lung damage. Treatment of asthma in children typically involves inhalers of one sort or another. There are inhaled steroid medications that help to prevent asthma attacks, and so-called “rescue inhalers” that are utilized when the quick relief of symptoms is required. But, as so often is the focus of my blogs, I think it’s important to first ask questions related to what may be causing a particular problem, in this case asthma, as opposed to simply focusing on treatments. In other words, how might the idea of preventive medicine factor into this discussion? It is known that prenatal and early life exposure to antibiotics is associated with increased risk for developing asthma. Other exposures in children associated with increased risk include tobacco smoke, air pollution, and mold exposure. Also, it does appear that breastfeeding is associated with ...
