Anti-oxidants foods and keeping up with a healthy body, mind and soul

What are they and what is their benefit

We are continuing the theme of supporting our body, mind and soul.

Anti-oxidants are another way of keeping your body healthy.

Oxidation is part of our normal body function. When the immune system is active, there is a lot more oxidation going on; when we run also there is a lot more oxidation. Usually our body deals with oxidation with the resources that it has got. This depends on how we eat and what we do in our lives. To make sure that you are doing and eating the right food, lets see in what food the anti-oxidant are and what you can do to add more into your diet. When you eat food that nourish your body, that nourish your mind and soul too. The healthier you eat, the more motivation you get in exercising or being outdoor and breathe, connect to nature and to your own soul!

I have been reminded that “we are what we eat”, here is what you can eat to fulfil your path:

I have written many articles about the healthy food, here is a reminder of them:

  • If you eat about two to three varied fruit a day, you get some anti-oxidant either through the form of vitamin C or other once. Apples, pears, oranges and lemon have all a form of antioxidants, that include pomegranates, the berries family even the frozen ones. Vitamin C is the main anti-oxidant, but also zinc and vitamin E are which are found in seeds and nuts, olive oil and greens, this include also avocados.
  • Resveratrol a powerful anti-oxidant and phytoestrogen is found in grapes and wine, and you get in a glass of organic red wine, drunk with a meal, a good amount of it click here to read more
  • A reminder that water is a powerful detox if drunk in the right amount, click here to read

Give your baby the gift of their lifetime through craniosacral therapy

Give your baby a gift of their lifetime, through craniosacral therapy.

Positive thinking is a state of mind, and also is a way to get you through life in a more constructive and positive way

We are going through major changes around the world, on how we see others, how we see ourselves and how we do things in general. Connection with the rest of the world humanity, nature, the wild life is so essential now, if we want to move forward in a more positive way of living.

Did you know that animal training is done only on the positive way? Dogs and wild animal that are training to do things are trained only with positive instructions. The training is only on their own terms. If they want to do what they are trained for, they get a reward, and if they do not want to do what they are trained for, they still get the reward. Most wild animal, they only train their younger in a positive way, you rarely see a wild animal parent punishing their younger with no food, if they get something wrong.

We are the only species in the animal Kingdom that would punish our younger for misbehaving or not doing what we tell them to do.

There are plenty of studies that if we get our younger from birth to adulthood a positive set of mind, with plenty of rewards when they do something, the young will see life in such a positive way, with plenty of unconditional love, that their lives, no matter what challenges they face in life, like anybody else, will be much brighter and successful!

Through craniosacral therapy, from birth, you give the opportunity of your young baby, of settling their system, with any type of birth, traumatic or normal. Through at least only two sessions, for the baby and the mother, the trauma that mother or baby has suffered will disappear and life can start with their little feet on the positive path. As a nutritional Therapist, also will be recommending dietary tips to reduce colic. There are many reason why a baby might constantly cry and be miserable during the 1st 3 months of their lives, here is what craniosacral therapy can do for the baby and mother:

  • Colic’s which are very frequent in babies
  • Frequency of throwing up the milk
  • Sleeping better and more peacefully
  • Stronger connection with mother and babies (the mother needs to be treated as well as the baby for both reflux and connection with the baby). Sometimes it takes more than 3 sessions before things starts to change.
  • Clinging babies or toddlers
  • Other problems that have been helped with my treatment of CS are:
  • Teething
  • Coughing
  • Frequent colds for the babies,
  • Toddlers and children
  • Reduction of allergies
  • Reduced irritation, which have led to a happier and more communicative toddler.
  • Reduction and or elimination of night terror in toddlers and children in general.

Strengthening your immune system – preparing for the winter- Body, mind & soul

How to you strengthen your immune system?

There are general tips for that, and for the ones that needs a bit more special attention, such as avoiding the foods that can increase the inflammation and hence reduce the immune system, needs to avoid the most common foods for them. This is by trial and error.

The health of the mind is also essential to strengthen the immune system and hence, dealing with the anger, fears and worries of everyday life, in this time and age is essential.

Health of the body, how to support it?

Eating healthy food that comes from the earth, such as mixed food:

  • Oats/rice or porridge with animal milk or vegetable milk or water. Add some honey, yogurt and seeds and nuts;
  • Eggs with mushroom, tomatoes;
  • Avocadoes on toast (gluten free or normal) with eggs or without eggs, very nutritious;
  • Lunches/dinners: beans/lentils, meat or fish with green salads, soups, stew with vegetables (if beans and lentils bloat you try to add a tip of teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda in the boiling water. This will soften the shell and is more digestible).
  • Give at least 3 hours break between one meal and another, after 3 or 4 hours, for the afternoon snacks have a fruit with the skin on or nuts.
  • If you need every 3 hours as too hungry, then have nuts and fruits. You might need to drink more water in between meals. Drink up to 2 litres of water for an average normal day, if hot outside or you exercise, you might need more.
  • The heating might be on now, so I would add some water on the heater in a bowl or under the heater, as the heat might dry the body a bit more. Especially if the heating is on at night as well.
  • Have one coffee/tea a day or max two and only in the mornings, max after lunch, as this stimulates your stress system and leads to do exactly the same as the stress mode (as described below).
  • Avoid any sugary drinks, or red bulls as that will increase inflammation and stress mode and reduce the immune system.
  • Drink water, possible mineral water to balance your minerals, volvic, Scottish and other mineral water are quite good. Or have more varied seasonal local vegetables to balance your minerals intake.
  • If you start getting ill or have fever, start taking extra supplement to reduce the damage from the immune system fighting any viruses or bacteria. For very high fever that does not go down with ibuprofen or any similar, use the following old remedies. Tap cold water compresses on the forehead, back of the neck and head, inside of the elbow, knees. Or compresses with vinegar, or hand gel with 70% alcohol. It will reduce and control the fever. The optimum fever to fight viruses is about 38 max 39, above that, it is a bit damaging for the body and brain.
  • For colds and other flus, in order to support your immune system take a tip of a teaspoon of vitamin C every two hours (vitamin C is eliminated every two hours, normal food is not enough, bats when they are ill make up to 20.000 g of vitamin C). If you get a loose bowel you can reduce the vitamin C intake. Click here to read more about vitamin C in my other blog.
  • Zinc 15 mg per adults a day for a month, to support the immune system and is an anti-oxidant, same as the vitamin C.
  • Warm vegetables or chicken soups, with red cabbage, asparagus.
  • Eat artichokes or take artichokes supplements after a week to help your digestive system. Milk thistle to support your liver.
  • To support your intestinal tract, which supports the immune system in turns, take a really good probiotics in supplements such as Advanced multi-billion dophilus from Solgar (dairy free), Biocare, viridian or any really goods ones. Bionutri herbs tea and eco-balance. For a month, it needs to have a really good amount of mixed friendly bacteria to help.
  • Spray Vogel has got a sage and echinacea throat spray that helped me every time I had a sore throat, with colloidal silver spray.
  • Freshly squeezed lemon and salt gurgle helps, this will sting a bit. Fresh lemon juices and lemon and honey with a bit of hot water helps.
  • Hot water, freshly squeezes lemon and freshly grated ginger helps a lot. Put turmeric and ginger, garlic and onions (if not allergic) into the soups. Plenty of it.
  • Lavender, aromatic oil to add near the throat, hot compresses to expand the lungs to breathe, hot steams water with Olbas oil to again helps with the lungs and breathing.
  • Use cinnamon stick, xylitol in your food preparation with sweets things.
  • Grated carrots and cooked carrots;
  • Grated beetroots and cooked beetroot, to support your liver and blood.
  • Fresh herbs are anti-microbial such as rosemary, thyme, dill, oregano.
  • Walk, run, cycle, breathe, stretch, meditate, positive thinking and more.

Emotional wellbeing and soul connection with craniosacral therapy/NLP and healing

Anger, fears and worries leads to anxiety. Emotional fears lead to the stress mode cascade to be triggered and it can be on all the time. Especially if the fears lead to lack of sleep.

Lack of sleep can stop the repairing of major organs and tissues in the body, that happens during the sleep. Usually at night, for some people who work during the night, might happen during their day sleep. Sleep is essential for the body, mind and soul balance.

When there is an imbalanced system, then problems arise, and chaotic thoughts set it, which set a chaotic surrounding life.

In order to calm and quite the internal mind, body and soul due to fears of the uncertainty of this time and age, it is essential that we go within.

Going within means recognising our own fears and other emotions and dealing with them, or finding a solution to the possible worries that we have.

If we give our mind a few possible solution and flexibility of thoughts, then changes are possible and stress is reduced, as the answer to our problems comes to us.

If the stress mode is off, then we can manage to digest our foods properly, by switching our stress mode to the digestive mode, which is also the one for a calm and relax mode.

This leads to eating healthy, knowing what foods bothers us and what helps us. Exercise more, or being outdoor more to breathe and connect to nature.

Enjoying our lives much more. Focusing on our next step or present step and being more grounded.

The soul well being is also essential, and it can be your own religion or just re-connecting to your soul and heart.

Our heart is considered the 5th brain.

How can we reconnect to our heart and our soul? Here are simple exercises that most people can do:

  • If we take about 5 minutes every day, breathing from our belly, breathing in, our belly goes out, so the diaphragm takes in more air, breathing out, our belly goes in, so it squeezes out the toxic air.
  • You can count from 3 to 6 with each in breath and each outbreath, breathing in through your nose and breathing out through your mouth. You can do this in the open when you are doing your walking meditation or indoor sitting down, so that you do not fall asleep.
  • I would also say, breathing in unconditional love from the universe for yourself, and breathing out unconditional love for somebody else that you love (it can be your family, friends or any loved ones), that 3 times. Then you breathe in unconditional love from the universe for yourself and then for somebody else that you know might need it. About 3 times. All this by connecting to your heart, which has got that universal unconditional love and all the space and possibility that you can ever think of. This will also open your heart to love in general.
  • The third set of breathing can be with breathing in unconditional love for yourself, breathing out unconditional love for the world out there where is most needed. This three times.
  • Start grounding by thinking or visualizing them or just saying that you have roots and golden anchors coming from the sole of your feet and the tailbone (at the end of the spine), going down and connecting to the earth, going towards the higher frequency of the earth. Bringing in from the roots and anchors that nourishment from the earth up to your roots and anchors, up to your legs, up to your body, up to your heart, where from there, will expand up to your head and above. Then think or visualize the beautiful sunshine ray of Light coming down from the sun, coming down through your head down to meet with your heart, and from your heart down to your entire body, brightening up the beautiful sunshine light. Like the leaves of a plant that absorb the light and transforms it into nourishment from above. Pay attention to your feet again and the grounding to the earth and then open your eyes.
  • Another grounding meditation is to walk outside and pay attention to your left foot when you put your left foot ahead and pay attention to your right foot when your right foot is ahead. So you end up walking and saying left, right, left, right, till whatever your are thinking or worry about, is gone and that light from the outside world comes in, to shine your internal world.

How would you know you are ungrounded?

  • You would feel foggy headed since you wake up in the morning.
  • You lose things easily
  • You book things online, without checking that you booked for the right dates, or thinking that you have booked for the right dates.
  • Everything around your life is chaotic
  • You might attract a lot of negative things into your life
  • It is harder to do what you need to do in life
  • You are always late for things, even when you wake up with plenty of time
  • You get easily distracted from other people problems
  • You might feel dizzy quite often for no apparent reason
  • You feel extreme anxiety for little things to do in life
  • You eat and drink things that are unhealthy for you
  • And many more…..

How would you know you are grounded?

  • You get well organized for things that you want to do in life
  • Follow your life purpose
  • Be on time for things that you need to do
  • Things in life gets much better in general, positive things

  1. In order to anchor the grounding, inner strength and calm, you need to choose where you would like to anchor the emotional state, that you can fire when needed, such as a song you feel connected to, or touching one of one of your knuckles, thumb, wrist, earlobes, or anything else that can be easily access to anywhere you are.
  2. Check how grounded you usually are by giving a number from 1 to 10, with 10 being the most grounded.

Answer that you need to get from life, gets to your, through opportunities that present themselves to you in some way or another.

One of the channelling Light with Rose, in my books “Beyond Science II and III” mentioned that in order for Rose life to be lucky and well, she needed in a positive thinking. Telling herself that she can do anything that she puts her mind to. That everything was well, to state things in positive way, instead of say no to everything in life that came her way. The positive mind, would be rewarded with the success in life.

Preparing for the winter and strengthening your immune system mindfully

How the intestinal tract can be protected from damage through eating the right food for you, and supporting its healthy state. Microbiome has been studied for the past 20 years and connected to the health of the individual, from birth to adulthood. This is since I started my University degree in Nutritional Therapy 24 years ago.

Each of us have a bacteria diversity that is unique to us, according to our birth and how many antibiotics we took since birth, without substituting the good bacteria. I know that many questions the use of adding only certain bacteria and the fact that we lost so many commensal and friendly bacteria, just by living in an urban area. Anyone living in a countryside, and in rural areas, have more diversity of our friendly bacteria that we do. My opinion as a nutritional therapists is that we do not want to lose even the few ones that we still have, and ingesting the ones that we can have, even via supplementation is better than nothing at all, especially if a baby had a C-section or a traumatic birth with a set of antibiotic. Whatever you have as a child from birth to two years old, set the grounding for the health of the intestinal tract microbiome, and as studies have shown now, even our brain health.

Intestinal barrier

Bacteria in the stomach is about 1,000/ml – duodenum – 10,000/ml – jejunum 100,000/ml – ileum 100,000,000/ml and large intestine up to 1,000,000,000,000/gm

The role of microbiome in the human body are quite few. Few of these are:

  • Production of short chain fatty acid production (SCFA) in the large intestine, which helps to heal the intestinal tract and the health of the gut barrier.
  • Helps with digestion, breaking down fibers and other undigestible food
  • Satiety, it makes you feel full when you are full.
  • Vitamin production;
  • Intestinal tract motility
  • Psychological health;
  • Regulation of intestinal tract inflammation;( barrier function, colonization (which it means immunity and protection)
  • Microbiota-gut-brain communication from brain, through the support of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. Neuromuscular control of peristalsis; flight or flight response as for cortisol production and secretion of mucus.
  • From microbiota to brain: There is vagus nerve activation; Neuropeptides and neurotransmitters such as leptin (for satiety) and serotonin (for feeling good); immune signaling with SigA and barrier integrity signaling  eg. Zonulin, and again with the making of short fatty acids production such as butyrate, acetate, etc.
  • Dysbiosis (which is more of the unfriendly bacteria than the friendly ones) have been connected with depression, cardiac dysfunction, unbalanced cholesterol levels, insulin resistance (insulin does not get into the cells) chronic inflammation and hormones unbalanced.

As for this year, everybody is more aware of keeping healthy. The health of the individual starts from the health of his intestine. Then I would look at the eating pattern at the same time of the intestinal tract health. The mental patterns and the healthy way of seeing life and then the exercise pattern. As an holistic therapist I look at the health of the individual from the physical to the mind and spiritual health.

In babies I look at the health of the birth with what microbiome they have and any possible allergies that they might have if they are breastfed; or what milk they are using.

Clinical experience of irritable bowel syndrome – Combination treatments to integrate body mind and soul wellness

The intestinal tract has got a barrier from the outside world to the inside of the body. Whatever you eat is considered to be outside your body. It becomes part of your body only when the nutrients that the body needs are absorbed through the gut barrier. There are some nutrients that go through the gut barrier easily, such as glucose and other simple form of sugars. Others needs to be taken into the blood stream through receptors. Everything more or less needs to go through the liver to be dealt with. From the liver, which is the centre in command for given instructions to where everything goes, and what needs to be made and then dispatched into the body for their use. Any excess is stored for future need, such as sugar excess or fat, proteins and some fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, k and water soluble B12. Any other water-soluble vitamin such as B vitamins and vitamin C will be used and/or eliminated through the body elimination system every day. Hence the nutritional value food and the extra vitamin C that you need each day is essential in your diet. If you diet is full of sugar, fat and fast food, then you will eventually be undernourished and hence diseases happen including low immune system.

If you have allergies or intolerances and you keep having them, then the low-grade inflammation in the intestinal tract or in the body, will cause low nutrients status and triggers the new modern age of disease.

So, my training 20 years ago at the University of Westminster, was that the first thing that you need to pay attention to is the gut barrier. There are test for leaky gut, and as I work with over-reaction of foods and allergies through NAET method testing and treating, I assume that if the person has got a lot of reaction to normal foods as well as the environment and other nutrients, that the intestinal tract barrier is leaky or has been affected by it.

What causes irritable bowel syndrome. Well I wrote a very short booklet about my own clinical experience with IBS. It is on amazon and you can easily get it to know what it is and what simple measure you can do to address the changes. Some changes need to be long term, and some might be short with lasting effect. It depends on the trigger of your IBS symptoms.

What are the main causes of IBS and possible colic for babies who intestinal barrier might be leaky due to just being born.

Babies are affected more when one parent or both parents have any type of allergies. If the mother who is breastfeeding is highly intolerant or reacting to dairy, eggs and gluten/wheat, or another food that might trigger a non-mast cell histamine release in the milk.  Only animal studies have been done on this, which connected histamine released from the intestinal tract where increasing the release of histamine in the mammary gland, which is then passed on to the baby or reduced the synthesis of casein, which means less milk protein in the milk. In simple words, if the mother is allergic to some food and keep eating it, there is a chance that the baby will eventually react to that particular food due to high histamine release, this is my theory and as I mentioned no studies have been done on this yet.

Babies intestinal tract also needs to be filled with good bacteria and this ground base of bacteria depends on the type of birth they had. Vaginal birth will give the baby the start of the bacteria that the mother has. If that is a full of friendly bacteria, then this is a good start. If the mother has got more yeast and has not taken any food supply of friendly bacteria, than it is probable that the bacteria that colonize the baby intestine is more of the yeast type.

With C-section and possible water birth then the bacteria will be of a different type.

If the baby is breastfed than usually the colostrum, which comes before the milk, will pave the way for the intestinal tract to colonize more of the friendly bacteria.

If the baby is bottle fed for any reason, then the bacteria that grows is different from the breastfed. The baby that is born with C-section, antibiotics through the mother or given for any reason necessary at birth than will have less chance of the commensal and friendly bacteria to colonize and form the cement of good health.

The good news is that in the modern life, you can give the baby the friendly bacteria from the start. Such as bifidus infantis or any infantis probiotics. I would suggest biocare range, bio-kult and optibac. Optibac has got less lactose if any of the babies are reacting to the dairy lactose.

The baby microbiome in the intestinal tract will have a massive impact on the health of the baby later on, including mental health. The first two years of the baby intestinal tract colonization with the friendly bacteria are essential and vital for that well-being. You can colonize the intestinal tract at any time, if you are having a baby and you are reading this, I would suggest to support that colonization as soon as possible.

A healthy intestinal tract paves the way to a healthy digestion, less allergies or over reaction to food, as the friendly bacteria make products to support the repair and support of the mucosal intestinal barrier.

Many studies recently have connected the health of the mucosal intestinal barrier with the mental health and with the maintenance of healthy neurotransmitters such as serotonin, which has many receptors in the intestinal tract. Dopamine and acetylcholine, are all essential for the happy mood and reduction of anxiety, short term memory and movements.

Hence intake, even as an adult of friendly probiotics are essential for our mental and physical health. Of course, in an ideal world, you would get all these friendly bacteria by being in the wild and nature. You would get more various strains of bacteria that we have lost in the modern life, and might loose even more now with all the extra cleaning. In some studies, the variety of the friendly bacteria in people in the wild where about 40 to 60 times more than someone who lives in the city.

As we cannot all live in nature for now, we need to be happy with what we have, which is a combination with acidophilus and bifidus bacteria. I would suggest Solgar Advanced multibillion dophilus, BioCare probiotics, G&G bifidus and any other high bifidus variety. There are some studies that have shown that bifidus longum is essential for the reduction from an early age of gluten allergies or prevents the trigger of the genetic make up of a baby/adult of the reaction to gluten in the intestinal tract.

What are the main causes of IBS:

  • Allergies, intolerances due to the class of antibodies over reaction, with the worse being IgE, IgG, IgM, IgA (the latter being specific for the intestinal tract and all the mucosal barrier in the body, including the lungs).
  • Stress – the stress mode, which it is called the sympathetic response, will shut down the parasympathetic neurological pathway, which is the one that opens the valves of the digestive system. You cannot run and eat at the same time without the consequence of having diarrhoea or constipation and pain later on!
  • Constipation due to dietary choices or physical problems
  • Parasites/ gastroenteritis. Past and present.
  • Traumatic events, which leads to constant stress mode, even when the person does not feel stressed.
  • Emotions and feelings that are not dealt with.
  • Foods and drinks that supports stress and the growth of unfriendly bacteria in the intestinal tract.
  • SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth). This is due to constipation, the valve between the small intestine and the large intestine being open when it should be shut. This might be due to long term constipation, and stress.
  • Many more reasons, and I would recommend people who have IBS to read my booklet the “clinical experience of irritable bowel syndrome” and/or book an appointment with myself to be guided and supported in dealing with the resolution of the IBS symptoms. Click here to buy the book on amazon

I would add to the probiotics the importance of the liver function as it is the centre of dispatches, similar to amazon really!

Natural food to support the liver are bitter foods, such as artichokes leaves, rockets, radicchio, chicory. Beetroot is also quite good for the liver detox.

Supplements in case of drinking or genetic low function of the liver detox, are milk thistle, artichokes, glutamine, l-cysteine, SAMe, and many more.

Milk thistle supports the liver as well as the mucosal intestinal barrier. Pomegranate juice and seeds also supports the bifidobacterial and hence the intestinal tract barrier, as well as being high in anti-oxidants such as lutein and lycopene.
