It’s Just a Little Procedure

A mysterious problem in my back was identified by a chiropractor in Santa Rosa CA. The problem was associated with one of the discs in my vertebrae. In order to eliminate the problem, I had to have a procedure done. Although the end result of the procedure was a fully healthy back, I was scared to go through with it. I’m not the kind of person who takes the news of having to go through medical procedures well. I always think about the kinds of things that could go wrong during, even for something that is simple and non-invasive.

The chiropractor told me that it would be a standard procedure and I would have nothing to worry about, and my wife tried to do the same, but all I could think about was an accident. My wife thought I was being a little silly. She’s usually the first person to go to the doctor, and if she needs to have a medical procedure done, she’ll get it done right away, after having a second opinion. She always tells me that if you want to live a long time, you have to go to the doctor on a regular basis and pay attention to your body’s warning signs.

I had a choice between living with the problem in my back for the rest of my life, or getting the procedure done and never having to think about it again. At the request of my wife and the chiropractor, I put my fears behind me and went through with the procedure. It was pretty quick and nothing went wrong. After I was done healing from the procedure, my wife took me out to dinner to celebrate. Looking back on the whole experience now, it was pretty funny how I was acting like a big baby.

Getting Started on a Big Project

I have just started out on this project, but it is going to take quite a bit of time to get it completed. The basic thing is that me and a half dozen other people bought a rather large piece of farm land which is just South of the metropolitan area. One of them is a chiropractor in Orland Park IL who fixed my back after someone crossed the center line and smashed into my truck about six years ago. He knew the other people and of course we are thinking about this as an investment, but it is not really that exactly. The land sits on a little tributary of the Illinois river where there is a lot of marshland and where you have that, you also have lots of water fowl. Obviously this makes it really easy to sell it to people who like to hunt ducks and fish.

The piece of land is huge, much of it has never been farmed.

Fatique Was Wearing Me out

When I told my friend I wanted to find a good chiropractor in Bakersfield CA, she immediately became concerned. She thought that I had been in an accident or had some type of injury, but I assured her that I was fine in both regards. I was just always feeling tired, and I had done some research on what could help me with it. In a lot of the online articles I had read, I saw where going to a chiropractor could actually help with this. If just one or two articles had mentioned it, I honestly don’t know that I would have considered going.

My Mom Lived Her Life As She Wanted to Instead of Following Everyone else

I wondered if my mom knew just how special she was to me before she died suddenly in an odd work accident? I found myself wondering if she ever realized what I thought of her? I was thinking about that last week during my visit at a Sacramento chiropractic center. I was laying on the table while the chiropractor as he examined me, and thinking about the fact that it was her intelligence that led me to have these appointments with him. Mom did not always go the traditional routes in life. She taught me that it is sometimes best to to try a variety of things until you find out what works best. Not everyone does that.

I knew my mom was different when I was pretty young. She wore hippie clothes instead of the business suits that some of the other mom’s wore. She would grow herbs instead of eating all the junk foods that most people ate. Rather than drinking sugar-laden sodas, she made her own teas and yogurt drinks. She would take a handful of supplements every day.

Baking Cookies All Day Just About Ruined My Back

Can you guess what did my back in over the weekend? Of all things, it was baking cookies. I was baking sheet after sheet of peanut butter cookies. A few hours into it, my back started to ache. It then progressed to the point of a pretty bad backache. It was pulling like I was hanging from a bridge by my fingertips for a day. I could not get the muscle spasms to relax. I spent all that time leaning over a countertop rolling peanut butter cookies into little balls and needed to see my Sacramento chiropractor the next day.

We were baking cookies to give to family, friends and neighbors. Everyone likes the cookies I bake.

Simple Way to Get More Exercise

exercisePractice is imperative for your wellbeing, and it’s a critical piece of weight reduction. Doing 30 to a hour of physical action every day is especially useful for keeping weight off once you’ve lost it, specialists say. In any case, discovering approaches to do that, and remaining persuaded to do it, is not generally simple.

You don’t need to do all your physical action for the day without a moment’s delay, however you ought to intend to do no less than 10 minutes of practice at once. Here are a few tips for getting more work out:

Pick an exercise you like

Some people start a new exercise regimen only to stop shortly afterward because it wasn’t working for them. When this happens, it helps to take a realistic look at the barriers to exercise, said Wayne Miller, the programs director at the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine’s Center for Rural and Community Health, who has studied weight loss and exercise.

Often, people choose an exercise that they aren’t comfortable with — for instance, they feel awkward at the gym, or dislike participating in sports. Picking a different activity that’s more enjoyable for the person, like a Zumba class or swimming, might increase the chances that they’ll stick with the exercise, Miller said.

And if specific skills are a concern, you might try picking an activity that requires minimum equipment, like walking, jogging or jumping rope, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

Exercise with friends

If you need motivation to get moving, it may be helpful to recruit friends to exercise with you. Friends can provide encouragement and may help you stick with your exercise routine, according to the National Institutes of Health.

And social connections may make exercise more enjoyable  — a 2013 study of more than 100 people who took short surveys on their mobile phone throughout the day found that those who were doing physical activity with their spouse, friends or co-workers at a given moment were happier, and enjoyed the physical activity more, compared with those doing physical activity alone.

Move more at work

Even during a busy workday, you can likely find time to get a little exercise in at work. You might consider taking a 10-minute walk during a coffee break, or walking around with a co-worker during a brainstorm session, rather than sitting at a conference table.

You could also walk around during business calls if you don’t need to look at important documents, the American Heart Association says. Your commute to and from work is another opportunity for exercise — if you take public transportation, get off a stop earlier than you usually do and walk the extra distance, or take the stairs instead of the elevator to your office.

Move more at home

There are also a number of opportunities to squeeze in more exercise at home. Doing housework or gardening can count as exercise — mowing the lawn with a hand mower burns about 235 calories in 30 minutes, and vacuuming burns about 140 calories in 30 minutes, according to the Compendium of Physical Activities Tracking Guide from the University of South Carolina, which lists the calories burned during many different types of physical activity.

You might also consider buying exercise equipment so you can work out while doing activities that would otherwise be sedentary, like watching TV. Equipment can be pricey, but it is a one-time expense and can be used by the whole family, the AHA notes.

Know More about Dietary Fat

dietary-fatDespite the fact that it gets negative criticism, fat is an essential supplement that the body needs to work. Eating the appropriate sum — and the right shape — of dietary fat is critical to keeping up great wellbeing, specialists say. In any case, devouring a lot of fat or too little may bring about wellbeing issues.

# Function of fat

Fat is a macronutrient. There are three macronutrients: protein, fats and starches. Macronutrients are supplements that give calories or vitality. Extensive sums are required to manage life, consequently the expression “large scale,” as indicated by the University of Illinois McKinley Health Center. The measure of vitality gave by the macronutrients shifts: fat has 9 calories for every gram, more than double the quantity of calories in carbs and protein, which each have 4 calories for each gram.

The primary function of fat is as an energy reserve, according to Iowa State University. The body stores fat, or adipose tissue, as a result of excess calorie consumption. During exercise, the body first uses calories from carbohydrates for energy. After about 20 minutes, it uses calories from stored fat to keep going, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Fats also help the body absorb necessary fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E and K), said Jim White, a Virginia Beach-based registered dietitian, health fitness specialist and a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Dietary fat also helps keep hair and skin healthy, insulates the body, protects organs and fills fat cells.

“Fat plays a role in the diet and shouldn’t be avoided,” said White. “Your body needs healthy sources of fat, also known as essential fatty acids, because the body can’t produce these fatty acids naturally.” Essential fatty acids contribute to brain development, blood clotting and aid in inflammatory control, according to the NIH.

There are several types of fat — some good, some bad, some well understood and some less so. Saturated fats and trans fats are commonly considered unhealthy, while unsaturated fats — including monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat — are considered healthy. All foods that contain fats have a mix of fat types, according to the Harvard School of Public Health.

— Saturated fats

Saturated fats are saturated with hydrogen molecules. According to White, saturated fat comes from animal sources, such as red meats, poultry and full-or-reduced fat dairy products.

“Saturated fats are solid at room temperature,” said Ximena Jimenez, a Miami-based nutritionist and national spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She cited lard as an example. Other examples include cheese and butter. Oils that are solid at room temperature, like palm oil, palm kernel oil and coconut oil, also contain saturated fats. This means that baked goods can be high in saturated fats.

“Saturated fat is linked to high cholesterol levels and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease,” said White. Saturated fats also tend to contain a lot of calories.

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends getting only 5 to 6 percent of calories from saturated fat. This puts someone on a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet with 120 calories or 13 grams of saturated fats per day. The 2010 U.S. Dietary Guidelines allow for up to 10 percent of calories to come from saturated fat.

— Trans fats (also called trans fatty acids)

According to Jimenez, trans fats are sometimes found naturally in meats or dairy, but usually in small amounts. More often, she said, they are “produced by the food industry for the purpose to increase shelf life of the product.” This is done by adding hydrogen to liquid vegetable oils to make the oils more solid. These are called partially hydrogenated oils. Jimenez said that they are often found in “convenient foods” like frozen pizzas. Other common sources of trans fats include baked goods, crackers, refrigerated dough, margarine and coffee creamer. Fast food restaurants often use them in deep fryers because partially hydrogenated oil does not have to be changed as often as regular oil.

Trans fats are not recommended at all because of the link to heart diseases,” warned Jimenez. In fact, they are often considered the worst type of fat. According to the AHA, they both lower your good cholesterol and increase your bad cholesterol. In 2013, the FDA decreed that partially hydrogenated oils were no longer considered safe. There is currently a three-year adjustment period in place so that food manufacturers can change their practices or seek approval. In the meantime, the Mayo Clinic recommends checking labels and looking for the words “partially hydrogenated.”

— Triglycerides

Triglycerides are a potentially dangerous type of fat found in blood, according to the NIH. They are associated with coronary artery disease, especially in women.

The body converts any calories it doesn’t need to use right away into triglycerides, which are stored in the fat cells. They are supposed to provide energy between meals, according to the Mayo Clinic. If you eat more calories than you expend, however, the body does not burn triglycerides, and they accumulate. Most types of fat we eat become triglycerides.

The Mayo Clinic provides the following guidelines for healthy triglyceride levels:

  • Normal: Less than 150 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL), or less than 1.7 millimoles per liter (mmol/L)
  • Borderline high: 150 to 199 mg/dL (1.8 to 2.2 mmol/L)
  • High: 200 to 499 mg/dL (2.3 to 5.6 mmol/L)
  • Very high: 500 mg/dL or above (5.7 mmol/L or above)

A blood test can reveal your triglyceride levels.

— Monounsaturated fats

These fats get their name because they are not saturated with hydrogen molecules and because they have a single carbon bond in the fat molecule (called a double bond). “They are liquid at room temperature. Examples are canola, peanut or olive oil,” said Jimenez. Olives and avocadoes also contain monounsaturated fats, White added.

“[Monounsaturated fats] are known to have a heart-protective role,” said Jimenez. White noted that they have been linked to improved cholesterol levels, and the Mayo Clinic adds that they may help insulin levels and blood sugar control.

It is still important to watch your intake of monounsaturated fats because of their high caloric content, said Jimenez. Though there are no specific guidelines on how many monounsaturated fats to consume, the Mayo Clinic suggests that most of your total fat intake should come from healthy fats.

— Polyunsaturated fats

Like monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats are not saturated with hydrogen molecules. They get their name from having more than one carbon bond (double bond) in the fat molecule, according to the AHA. They are liquid at room temperature.

Polyunsaturated fats are found mostly in plant food sources, such as soybeans and soybean oil, sunflower oil, sunflower seeds, walnuts and flaxseeds, White said. They’re also present in fatty fish like salmon, tuna, herring, mackerel and trout.

“[Polyunsatured fats] have been shown to impact blood cholesterol levels leading to a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease,” said White. They also help with cell development and maintenance and add vitamin E to your diet.

Polyunsatured fats provide essential fatty acids, including omega-6 and omega-3, according to White.

Though there are no specific guidelines on how many polyunsaturated fats to consume, the Mayo Clinic suggests that most of your total fat intake should come from healthy fats.

— Omega-3 fatty acids

“Omega-3 fatty acids are a polyunsaturated fat that can come from plant-based sources and are also found in fish,” said White. “Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to lower blood pressure levels.”

Jimenez added that they are also important anti-inflammatories. On a cellular level, omega-3 fatty acids work like aspirin to inhibit an enzyme that produces hormones that trigger inflammation.

She recommended eating cold-water fish like salmon, herring, tuna and mackerel, as well as walnuts, olive oil and canola oil. Some people take fish oil to up their omega-3 intake.

There are no standard recommendations for the amount of omega-3s you need every day. The American Heart Association recommends eating 3.5 ounces of fish at least twice a week to get a good amount of omega-3s. No one should consume more than 3 grams of omega-3s from supplements without consulting a doctor, as it may cause bleeding.

— Omega-6 fatty acids

“Omega-6 fatty acids are also polyunsaturated fats commonly found in plant-based oils,” said White. Good sources include vegetable, corn, peanut, grapeseed and sunflower oils, as well as mayonnaise and many salad dressings.

According to White, omega-6 fatty acids promote healthy skin and hair growth and benefit a healthy metabolism. They also help maintain bone health and the reproductive system.

In excessive amounts, some types of healthy-omega-6 fatty acids may cause the body to produce inflammatory chemicals, according to theUniversity of Maryland Medical Center. This is important to note because in general, Americans get far more omega-6 fatty acids than necessary and far too few omega-3s. The American Heart Associationrecommends that between 5 and 10 percent of calories come from omega-6 fatty acids.

“Your fat consumption should be proportional to your weight and dietary lifestyle,” said White. If you’re trying to change your body or become healthier, it should be proportional to your goals. “You will need to look at how many calories you need to consume daily to maintain, lose weight, or gain weight (based on your goals).”

White said that the average adult should get 20 to 35 percent of their calories from healthy fat sources. An adult eating a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet could eat 44 to 78 grams of fat in a day. Some healthy fat sources include olive oil, avocadoes, salmon, tuna, walnuts, flax seeds and sunflower seeds, said White.

“If you eliminate fat too much, it can have serious health consequences,” said Jennifer Fitzgibbon, a registered oncology dietitian at Stony Brook Hospital Cancer Center in New York. “Mental health deficits like depression and vitamin deficiencies can occur. The vitamins A, D, E and K are fat soluble, meaning the body stores them in fatty tissue and the liver. The intestines need dietary fat to properly absorb these nutrients. These vitamins are also necessary for the health of your skin, bones and cardiovascular system, among other organs and systems.”

“It isn’t very common for someone to be deficient in fat in their diet, most people are guilty of having too much fat in their diet. Anything over an average amount is too much,” said White.

If you eat too much fat, you will likely gain weight, which is linked to health problems. Research on fat is ongoing, but some studies suggest that excess fat may play a role in heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes, according to the Mayo Clinic. Eating too much fat is also linked to high cholesterol.

Every five years, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) create a committee to update the official U.S. Dietary Guidelines. The most current version available is from 2010. That version advises that 20 to 35 percent of calories come from fat. In 2015, however, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) issued a recommendation to remove restrictions on fat consumption.

There is a growing body of evidence that emphasizes getting healthy fats and avoiding unhealthy ones rather than cutting fats altogether, according to the Mayo Clinic. White advises not to cut all dietary fat, but to keep track of it. “Focus on consuming healthy fat sources instead of unhealthy fat to help toward weight-loss goals,” he said.

Furthermore, low-fat diets often lead to people eating highly processed foods that are high in refined sugar and carbohydrates but low in fat. Rather than specifying how much fat to consume, the DGAC advised eating more vegetables and limiting sugar.

Healthy Snacks

healthy-snacksDietary patterns for grown-ups and youngsters are changing significantly with a move from three square dinners to throughout the day eating.

Nibbling now represents up to one fourth of our day by day calories, and this sound snacks tip sheet offers some awesome proposals how to make those snacks both flavorful and nutritious.

Did you know how we purchase nourishment and where we store it can bigly affect our odds of picking solid snacks? Look over the accompanying “hacks” or recommendations to enhance your sustenance surroundings and make sound nibbling simpler.

Healthy Snack Hacks

  • Healthy snacks combine foods from at least two food groups and often include protein-rich foods that promote satiety, keeping you satisfied longer between meals. Pair milk, cheese, yogurt, nuts, hard cooked eggs or peanut butter (convenient, affordable protein-rich foods) with a food from another food group such as an apple, whole grain crackers or celery.
  • Use smaller containers, plates or utensils for foods you wish to limit. Once you get home from the store, immediately portion out foods by serving size, to avoid eating straight from the container which increases consumption.
  • Aim for the trifecta when it comes to snacking. Stock your house, car or office with food group foods that are your favorites, convenient and affordable/available. Apples, nut butters, cheese and whole grain crackers are great examples of convenient, affordable favorites that you can mix and match. Give yourself healthy options to choose between.
  • Don’t go shopping while you’re hungry. Snack wisely to avoid sharp feelings of hunger before you head to the grocery store. Make sure you pick up a variety of foods from all five food groups so you can have healthy snacks on hand.

Kitchen Hacks for Healthy Snacks

  • Be mindful of what you leave out on your counters. Put cereals, soda, chips, etc away in cupboards and leave fruit or other healthy snacks out on the counters. Keep your refrigerator stocked with high protein foods pre-portioned for snacking, like yogurt, hard cooked eggs or reduced-fat string cheese.
  • You are more likely to eat the first food you see, so place healthy snack foods like yogurt, veggie sticks or fruits where they can easily be seen and consumed. Use clear containers to store foods you want to encourage, put less healthful or more indulgent items behind closed doors or at the bottom of the fridge/freezer.
  • Make tempting foods inconvenient. If possible, move the pantry to another area of the home.
  • If you are in the market for a new fridge, look for a one with the freezer on the bottom. This makes it easier to keep healthy, refrigerated options at eye level. If possible, configure your kitchen so that the fridge opens towards the sink. This decreases the time needed to prep foods by making it easier to wash produce right out of the fridge.
  • Make your kitchen less “loungeable”. Banish the TV from the kitchen so you’re less likely to linger and snack mindlessly.

Low in whole grains and milk and milk products? Prepare parfaits with low-fat yogurt, oatmeal or granola and fruit in clear containers and store them at eye level in the refrigerator.

Need to eat more fruit? Pick 3-4 of your favorites and prepare half of them in a fruit salad. Store the remaining whole fruit in a bowl on the counter.
