Although winter has begun, I am always inspired by the arrival of the Winter Solstice. The days are now becoming longer, and famous dreariness of the Pacific Northwest seems not quite so dreary. Winter arrived here in Portland with one of the wildest windstorms on record, and although our neighborhood was spared the brunt of the blast, the backyard is covered in fallen fir branches and the weaker twigs and leaves from vegetation blocks away--Nature's trimming process--and, an opportunity to trim myself with some exercise! It's a big job, but, remember how to eat an elephant... One bite at a time...
I received a tip about what to do with yard debris in a situation just as this: rake it into your flower beds and garden. Over the course of the winter, it will become compost. If by spring--or whenever you start wanting to plant--the debris hasn't all broken down, you can easily scrape off what's left and either bury it, or take it to the curb for removal. Or, chop it up more and throw it in the compost bin.
With the talk of exercise, it's easy to let that part of the lifestyle slide during winter, what with the short daylight hours, rain, snow, ice, wind and cold. Nonetheless, did you know that an hour of vigorous housework can burn 250 calories? The trick is getting motivated, but at least knowing that your house is getting cleaned, AND you're burning fat, can be all the motivation you need.
I've been impressed lately by reading Kevin Trudeau's book, More Natural Cures. His chapter called "Weight Loss Secrets" has some great suggestions. Beyond the common sense intelligence of increasing vegetable and fruit intake, and sticking to organically grown foods, he suggests using organic, unrefined, virgin coconut oil--a tablespoon in the morning and one in the late afternoon. He challenges us to a 30-day regimen with this, resulting in the following:
"High blood pressure can be a thing of the past
Circulation problems vanish
Mood swings, gone
Arthritis pain reduced or eliminated
Cancer in remission
Acid reflux and heartburn dimished or gone forever
If you are overweight, you'll probably lose 10 pounds!"
Wow. Love it! The other thing he touts is unfiltered apple cider vinegar. He says, "It will increase the fat-burning furnace in your body and allow you to start burning stored fat." Yes, it's really sour, so if you can't tolerate it straight, on salads or steamed veggies, it's great. You can also dilute it with water and add honey (2 tablespoons in 8 oz. of water is a good ratio--2-3 times a day. You can also find it in capsules at your health store). Apple cider vinegar has been a household cure for 5,000 years, and has been shown to resolve over 50 ailments, from fibromyalgia to flu.
Another rave of Trudeau's is the use of hot peppers (cayenne, halepenos, habeneros, etc.), also ginger (because it's hot). The idea is that by increasing the heat in the body, it helps it to burn the very calories being consumed; and revs up the metabolism and the digestion, helping to "move food through the colon quicker, increasing elimination." Recently, hot peppers have been shown to reverse Type I Diabetes (see below).
So, welcome to the new year with all its promise and potential. As Boyd is fond of saying, "2007: Just like heaven."

F.Y.I. - Interesting Health News Tidbits
Hot chili peppers are cool...
Scientists at a Toronto hospital may have discovered proof that the body's nervous system helps trigger diabetes. This stunning discovery, which shocked even the researchers who made it, could eventually lead to a near-cure of diabetes. Type I diabetes in particulars long been thought to be incurable.
Diabetic mice were injected with injected with capsaicin, the active ingredient in chili peppers, which counteracted the effect of malfunctioning pain neurons in the pancreas. The mice became healthy practically overnight. This goes against the previous conventional wisdom that Type 1 diabetes is caused solely by the body's immune system attacking the pancreas. Apparently, the nerves also secrete neuropeptides that are crucial to the proper functioning of the pancreas.
More reasons not to bring home the bacon...
A chemical added to processed meat products is responsible for a 67% increased risk in pancreatic cancer, says author and nutritionist Mike Adams. The conclusions are based in part on research conducted at the University of Hawaii that reveals a 67% increased risk of pancreatic cancer in people who consume large quantities of hot dogs, sausage and other processed meats, versus those who consume little or no processed meat. The study was led by Dr. Ute Nothlings and was announced at the annual gathering of the American Association for Cancer Research.
While the study did not specifically name sodium nitrite as the cause of the heightened cancer risk, the huge spike in toxicity and cancer risk can only be explained by something added during meat processing, explains Mike Adams, author of "Grocery Warning," a manual that teaches consumers how to avoid foods that promote chronic disease.
"We've known for years that sodium nitrite consumption leads to leukemia in children and brain tumors in infants," explained Adams. "Now we have a large-scale study of nearly 200,000 people that provides solid evidence of the link between processed meats and pancreatic cancer." The ingredient also promotes colorectal cancer as it passes through the digestive tract.
If sodium nitrite is so dangerous, why do food producers continue using it? The chemical is added primarily as a color fixer that turns meats a reddish, fresh-looking color that appeals to consumers. Packaged meats like hot dogs would normally appear a putrid gray, but with enough sodium nitrite added, the meats can seem visually fresh even if they've been on the shelves for months.
Additionally, new research continues to support the negative effects of eating pork. In Kevin Trudeau's book, More Natural Cures, he points out the Brown University research showing how there are retroviruses in ALL pork cells. These retroviruses can suppress the human immune system, and lead to overall body system debility, inflammation, hormonal imbalances, headaches and degenerative conditions. When a regular pork-eater goes off pork for 30 days, there is a dramatic increase in energy and immune function.
How long will you live?
Harvard Medical School researchers Thomas Perl, M.D., and Margery Hutter Silver, Ed.D. developed a quiz to help you calculate
your life expectancy. The quiz was developed after a rigorous study of 150 centenarians, their attitudes, social situation, geographic locations, and health habits. The 23 questions on the survey each represent a crucial component considered to lead to a long, healthy life.
Although these two factors are not addressed in the Harvard quiz, having plenty of money in the bank and a good sex life are the keys to a long and healthy old age, according to Professor Ian Philp, the British government's old-age "czar." Research has shown that sexually active seniors are healthier and tend to live longer than those who are celibate. However, Philp believes that a big bank balance is just as important when it comes to health in old age, saying: "There's a proven correlation between wealth and health at any time of life, but especially so at old age."
On the other hand, a study done by a Columbia University Graduate student and evaluated by the RAND corporation in 1999 concluded that education is by far the most potent statistical key to longevity--greater than any other presumed factor, including the ones noted here. The study found that people lived an average of 1.5 years longer for every year of education they had... [NY TIMES REPORT, 1/3/07] >>>> LONGEVITY CALCULATOR
The sticky mess of non-stick Teflon...
The much-touted and culturally embraced "better living through chemistry" of the 50s and 60s, has now, in the 21st Century come back to bite us. Dow Chemical's brainchild, Teflon, has now been found in the blood of most humans, seaweed, and even in polar bears. Specifically, the manmade supermolecules from Teflon, fluorotelomers and fluoropolymers, in the perfluorochemical (PFC) family are the carcinogenic culprits.
Chemical properties that make PFCs so useful in industry also make them virtually indestructible in nature. For sheer persistence, two members of the family, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), stand out. They are not broken down by heat, light, or microbes. Other PFCs do break down, but in doing so, most of them end up giving off PFOA or PFOS.
Of these two compounds' many disturbing properties, the one setting off the most alarm bells is their potential for causing cancer. Studies reported by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (some of them conducted in the labs of Du Pont and a former producer, the 3M Company) have shown that rats fed PFOA were more likely to develop tumors in the pancreas, liver, testicles, and mammary glands. PFOS has been linked to liver and thyroid cancer in rats. A 1993 study found that 3M workers involved in manufacturing PFOA were three times as likely to die of prostate cancer as those who weren't. An EPA-appointed science advisory board has recommended labeling PFOA as "likely to be carcinogenic" in humans. DuPont has responded by maintaining that the "weight of evidence suggests that PFOA exposure does not cause cancer in humans," not exactly the kind of seal of approval you'd want to bet your family's health on.
PFCs have turned up in wildlife on at least three continents and above the Arctic Circle, in the blood of dolphins, seals, sea lions, minks, polar bears, gulls, albatrosses, bald eagles, sea turtles, and dozens more species. They are widespread in seafood. Fifteen PFCs have been identified in human blood samples, with highest concentrations in Americans. PFOA has been found in the blood of 90 percent to 95 percent of U.S. residents who have been screened. Once in the body, it doesn't leave quickly; almost four years after being taken in, half of the original amount remains. >>>> SOURCE >>>>
