Living Our Own Life by Valerie Cheers Brown

Paleo Focused Plate

The Paleo Diet incorporates sustenance that individuals ate before cultivating turned into a lifestyle, and before handled grains and dairy items advanced onto our plates. While disposing of prepared nourishment for more vegetables and incline cuts of meat, it’s insightful to recall that each eating regimen and supper arrangement ought to place an emphasis on balance. Meat-based eating regimens can build your danger of coronary illness. In this way, in case you’re a meat eater, here are a few things to remember.

The Paleo Diet focuses on fruits and vegetables.

Some choices are fresh fruits without added sugar and fresh vegetables without added salt, butter or cheese.

The Paleo Diet also focuses on leat meats.

It discusses that meats from animal which are grass-fed, not corn-fed are a crucial part of the Paleo Diet. Such choices are lean cuts of beef, port, veal or lamb, chicken or turkey without the skin and only meats which are fresh and not processed or cured or healthy for our bodies.

If you are Paleo Dieting and eating fish or shellfish, according to the American Heart Association suggests you eating at least twice a week. The reason for the fish is for omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, herring or trout.

According to Eating Healthy “Eating two or three servings of fish a week is a simple way to improve your health and stave off certain illnesses and diseases. Salmon is one of the most nutritious types of fish to add to your diet. It supplies iron, zinc, niacin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, in addition to a whole host of other nutrients you need for good health.”

Eating Healthy also states that “Selenium is a mineral that keeps your thyroid working properly and boosts the health of your immune system. It also works as an antioxidant, which means that it destroys free radicals — harmful chemicals that are produced by your body in response to aging, pollution and other environmental contaminants. You need 55 micrograms of selenium each day. A 3-ounce serving of pink salmon contains about 44 micrograms of selenium and the same amount of coho salmon supplies about 36 micrograms. Wild Atlantic and sockeye salmon provide similar amounts.”

Salmon is one of the best fish you can eat which, “The amount of potassium and protein in salmon depends on what type of the fish you’re eating. All salmon contain the two nutrients, though. A 3-ounce serving of wild Atlantic salmon contains 21.6 grams of protein and 534 milligrams of potassium, and the same portion of coho salmon has 23.3 grams of protein and 387 milligrams of potassium. Three ounces of sockeye salmon contains 21.6 grams of protein and 347 milligrams of potassium.”

The American Choose My Plate states that grains and dairy are good for us, but the Paleo Diet Focused Plates states, ” Two major food groups – whole grains and dairy – aren’t part of the Paleo Diet at all. While you can eat eggs, stick to no more than three egg yolks per week.”

“There’s not much research about how the Paleo Diet affects heart health” according to the Eating Healthy.

There are many good ideas in this diet, like eating fresh fruits and vegetables and staying away from foods that are fried, processed, sugary, and salty. Eating a lot of meat and other foods that are high in cholesterol, like eggs, can increase your risk for heart disease.”how

Before you make any changes to your diet, talk to your body and you must believe one can heal by believing you will also.

Proven testimonies from Dr. Terry Wahl’s, who was diagnosed MS in 2000.

She saved her own life utilizing and implementing research found and actually changing to the Paleo Diet, which has helped her to defeat the crippling progressive disease of Multiple Sclerosis.

When doctors said she would not get better and she showed them what and how by changing our diets can do for the mitochondria.

She took what doctors recommended that she should take with their not proven not healing medicines and therapy and she only declined and got worst.

If this is not evidence of what the diet will do, then I don’t know will not?

Dr. Terry Wahl’s actually went from bed and wheelchair to going around the world speaking about her great testimony by changing her diet.

She turned to science and the ‘caveman diet.’

Some may wonder what and what the mitochondria is and why is it important when it comes to our health improving?

Well, here is a brief explanation of what it means to our health and life.

“We spend billions of dollars every year buying pills, potions, and creams that promise to slow the aging process. But what if we could enlist our own bodies to help us live longer, healthier lives?”

“Meet your mitochondria — the tiny factories in each of our cells that turn the food we eat and the oxygen we breathe into energy.”

“When the communication breaks down between our cells’ nuclei and their mitochondria, aging accelerates.”

“But here’s the exciting news — the opposite is also true: When intracellular communication is improved, the aging process slows down, and overall health and vitality improve.”

Mitochondria are often referred to as the powerhouses of the cells. They generate the energy that our cells need to do their jobs. For example, brain cells need a lot of energy to be able to communicate with each other and also to communicate with parts of the body that may be far away, to do this substances need to be transported along the cells, which needs lots of energy. Muscle fibres also need a lot of energy to help us to move, maintain our posture and lift objects.

The Paleo Diet emulates the diet of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, based on the premise that they did not suffer from the same diseases as modern humans.

This diet advocates consumption of unprocessed animals and plants, including meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds.

It shuns processed foods, sugar, dairy and grains, although some of the more modern “versions” of Paleo do allow foods like dairy and rice.

“After much research, listening, testimonies, I have come to the conclusion that studies are simply what they are and in Dr. Wahl’s case, an actual person who defeated disease and illness proves many doctors very wrong.”

Many doctors said she would not get better, but she proved them to be very wrong by changing her diet to the Paleo Diet, which to me seems to have worked in healing  a very crippling disease which will deterriate the body and causes you not to be able to function or control body functions at all.

“My mother had MS and I know what it will do to the body. I was with my mother during her MS ordeal and it was very sad to see, what we thought perfectly healthy woman, lose her muscle control and unable to function as a mother who loved and did just about any and everything by hand as she was so use to doing.”

“Changing ones diet will keep us from becoming ill, especially our children, and will more importantly heal our bodies, when we do become ill or are diagnosed by some doctors, it seems with much evidence and proof.”

One last thing which I find very amazing, the American Choose My Plate states Dairy products are good for our children, when the Paleo Focused Plate includes water being a crucial part of everyday diet?

Where are we going wrong in this country?

Should we take our own lives into our own hands and do like Dr. Wahl’s?

I think we should use our ownselves as guinea pigs so to speak and heal our ownselves.

“I have begun to do just this with my very own life, and want to live to see my grandson graduate from college and maybe even his kids be born.”

According to Dr. F. Batmaghelidj, “Water is the basis of all life and that includes your body. Your muscles that move your body are 75% water; your blood that transport nutrients is 82% water; your lungs that provide your oxygen are 90% water; your brain that is the control center of your body is 76% water; even your bones are 25% water.”

“Our health is truly dependent on the quality and quantity of the water we drink.”

“Dr. B’s pioneering work shows that Unintentional Chronic Dehydration (UCD) contributes to and even produces pain and many degenerative diseases that can be prevented and treated by increasing water intake on a regular basis.”

“If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle, make drinking enough natural water a habit in your life. It won’t take long for you to feel the benefit.”

“It is a free investment for your long-term health.”
