Fructose and Weight gain.

Fructose and High fructose corn syrup DO CONTRIBUTE TO WEIGHT GAIN.
The amount of sugar from a single can of COKE and BEER are metabolically the same
That is why we see BEER BELLYS and OBESITY in children

Table sugar- sucrose- is half fructose and half glucose. The fructose in it doesnt tell the brain satiety center to feel full, so when we take excess sugar especially fructose in our diet, we dont feel full. That is why high fructose corn syrup drinks- dont satisfy us

In addition- many caffeinate beverages with fructose or high fructose corn syrup, have salt as well. The caffeine dehydrates you and the salt makes you thirsty, while the fructose doesnt make you feel full and you want more to drink.

In the body, fructose also contributes to gout by the production of uric acid.

Eating a diet with natural fresh fruits and vegetables has fiber- which increases the movement of the sugars throughout the intestinal tract and also slows down the absorption of sugars.

High sugar absorption in drinks without fiber- like apple juice, pomegranate juice, orange juice- lead to high insulin levels and insulin causes the deposition of fat in the body. Many of these drinks with processed ( although natural) sugars- contain glucose, to raise the insulin and lay down fat, and fructose which doesnt give you the sense of fullness and leaves you wanting more.

Fiber in your diet- will make you feel fuller. One glass of orange juice- about 29 grams of sugar- takes about 5 oranges to make one glass. Which would make you feel fuller? One glass of orange juice or 5 oranges?

For weight loss- you are better eating the natural fruit and vegetable( vegetables are low in sugar)

For Diabetes- the natural fruit and vegetable will have less of an impact on your blood sugar than the sugar drink.

For irritable bowel- a high fiber meal- from fresh fruits and vegetables may prevent cramping, constipation and diarrhea. Soluble fiber for diarrhea, and insoluble fiber for constipation

Healthy Attitude, healthy soul, Acts of Kindness


A young and successful Executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, Going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar.He was Watching for kids darting out from between parked Cars and slowed down when he thought he saw Something.  As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side door! He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to The spot where the brick had been thrown. 

The angry Driver then jumped out of the Car, grabbed the nearest kid and pushed him up Against a parked car shouting, ‘What was that all about and who are you? Just what The heck are you doing? That’s a new car and that Brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why Did you do it?’

The young boy was apologetic. ‘Please, mister…please, I’m sorry but I didn’t Know what else to do,’ He pleaded. ‘I threw the Brick because no one else would stop….’ With tears Dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth Pointed to a spot just around a parked car.. ‘It’s my Brother, ‘he said ‘He rolled off the curb and fell Out of his wheelchair and I can’t lift him Up.’  Now sobbing, the boy Asked the stunned executive, ‘Would you please help Me get him back into his wheelchair? He’s hurt and he’s too heavy for me.’

Moved beyond words, The driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling Lump in his throat… He hurriedly lifted the Handicapped boy back into the wheelchair, then took Out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the fresh Scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything Was going to be okay. ‘Thank you and may God bless You,’ the grateful child told the stranger. Too Shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy! Push his wheelchair-bound brother down the sidewalk Toward their home.. It was a long, slow Walk back to the Jaguar. The damage was very Noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair The dented side door. He kept the dent there to Remind him of this message:

‘ Don’t go through life So fast that someone has to throw a brick at you to Get your attention!’ God whispers in our souls and Speaks to our hearts Sometimes when we don’t have Time to listen, He has to throw a brick at us. It’s Our choice to listen or Not. 

In conclusion- no act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.


1) Walking is mans best medicine- even 30 minutes of walking a day lowers your risk for diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and certain cancers. 

2) Know what person the disease has rather than what disease the person has. This means we should take a total approach to the patient including the personality, the home environment, relationships, diet, facial expressions even before diagnosing and treating someone. Its impossible to understand the illness without understanding the whole person. 

For example- many obese patients are in toxic relationships, have a stressful job, and poor sleep. Its hard to fix the obesity if the underlying cause is not fixed. Today a woman called who had gastric bypass 10 years ago at weight 300lbs. She went down to 130 and now is back at 200. Its important to analyze diet as well as job, stress, exercise- factors that contribute to rebound in weight gain.

3) Let food be thy medicine-

No matter what eating style you follow, if its based on unprocessed foods, colorful plants, and little added sugar, and unsaturated fats in moderation- you are likely to be healthier and live longer. 

Less stroke, or heart attack occurs in people who live a healthier lifestyle, whereas processed foods, sugar, animal fats, and artificial chemicals, can activate disease causing genes – they also lack the healthy nutrients that activate protective genes.

4) everything in moderation-Even water, exercise supplements and sleep can be damaging if taken to extreme. Too much VItamin A or Vitamin D can lead to headaches and increased pressure on the brain. Even too much kale can be harmful because it can prevent your thyroid from absorbing the iodine it needs

5) To Do nothing is also a good remedy

Todays medicine seems to tend towards ordering tests and doing procedures rather than listening to patients to make a diagnosis and treatment plan- even if some of the tests and procedures are unnecessary. Sometimes the best diagnostic tool we have is time. 

For example- Giving antibiotics for a cold- the antibiotics wont help and it could an allergic reaction, a yeast infection or dangerous diarrhea, not even to mention the development of resistant bacteria.

If your doctor wants to prescribe high blood pressure medicine or cholesterol lowering medicine at the first sign of a high number- consider that you can change your diet and exercise routine first.

Heavy metal in body- Remove naturally with foods

Heavy metals in the human body contribute to serious health problems. Toxic heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, lead, uranium and aluminum may enter the human body through food, water, air, or absorption through the skin. In today’s world, it is difficult to avoid exposure to any one or more of these metals. Natural News has reported extensively on this subject. It is, however; useful to be reminded of the foods that actually help to remove toxins from the body. Toxins from heavy metals can result in enormous damage to the human body. Long-term exposure may result in muscular, neurological and physical degeneration and may cause cancer. Although aluminum is not a heavy metal, it is readily ingested through the use of food additives, antacids, buffered aspirin, astringents, raising agents such as baking powder, nasal sprays, vaccinations, aluminum foil and cookware.

Foods that chelate metals Pectin, found in the rinds of various fruits and vegetables, has been found to chelate heavy metals and other contaminants from the blood stream. These contaminants are then excreted from the system through urination. Good sources of pectin are green apples, cabbage, bananas, beets, grapes, carrots and the pith of citrus fruits. Cilantro, otherwise known as coriander, is an excellent food for removing heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum and lead from the body. This herb is believed to cross the blood-brain barrier and remove heavy metals from the brain. Taking 400 mg of cilantro a day can pretty much clean heavy metals out of the body in just two weeks, according to Robert C. Atkins MD. Parsley is extremely effective when it comes to removing mercury from the body. Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, kale and cabbage contain antioxidants that increase the production of detoxifying enzymes in the body. Sulfur-rich foods, such as onions and garlic, help the body to eliminate heavy metals such lead. Other sulfur-rich foods, such as cauliflower, eggs, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cabbage are able to remove some heavy metals from the body. Natural chelating agents include amino acids, obtained from proteins such as eggs and fish.

Protein deprivation has been shown to decrease the liver content of several enzymes the body needs to remove toxins. Chlorella is a mild chelator. Chlorella has a three-layered cell wall that contains cellulose microfibrils, which aids in heavy metal detoxification. Alpha lipoic acid is made by the body and can be found in very small amounts in foods such as spinach, broccoli, peas, Brussel sprouts, rice bran, and organ meats. According to Dr. Lyn Patrick, alpha lipoic acid crosses the blood brain barrier and is able to trap circulating heavy metals, thus preventing cellular damage caused by metal toxicity. Learn more:
