Dear Friends,

Were you aware that the average American consumes about 152 pounds of sugar a year! That breaks down to roughly 22 teaspoons a day for each person in America.

High sugar intake has been directly related to obesity, type 2 diabetes, dementia, depression, ADHD, acne, heart disease, infertility, and impotence.

The sad truth is that sugar addiction is not an emotional disorder – sugar cravings are a biological disorder, fueled by the body’s hormones and neurotransmitters. This often leads to uncontrolled eating, which in turn gives cause to the reason why nearly 70 percent of Americans are considered overweight.

Aside from the toll sugar takes on your health, here are some other ways sugar affects you negatively:

Motivation
Sugar affects motivation by reducing dopamine, the motivation neurochemical in your brain.

Brain Fog
Sugar causes brain fog by spiking the hormone insulin, which gives you the rush after you eat sugar. The spike, then, leads to a crash as your insulin plummets.

Insatiability
Consuming sugar only provides temporary satisfaction, which can lead to overeating as we try to satiate by eating more.

Teeth Health
High sugar consumption causes tooth decay.

Now that you have read some of the scary truths about sugar consumption, the best way to see for yourself the effect sugar is having on your body and mind is to try cutting it out for at least 10 days.

Before you start a detox, it is a good idea to have a plan in place, because the cravings will be shockingly strong for the first few days. Here are some steps to follow to help get you ready:

Get in the Right Mindset
Prepare yourself by making the decision to clear your body of sugar. This is important because you won’t have success if you don’t set your mind to it.

Eat a Healthy Diet
Focus on eating healthy carbs, proteins, and fats. Eating healthily will help you feel better as your body starts its detox.

Build New Routines
It is hard to stop any addictive behavior cold turkey, so to soften the withdraw it is best to approach for your detox by gearing up with small changes to your routine, such as cutting cream and sugar from your morning coffee or cutting down on any beverages with sugar throughout the day.

Throw Out the Sugar
Get rid of all the candies and sweets you have in your pantry. And be sure to read those ingredient lists!

Dear Katharine,

Most of us have been warned at some point about the importance of good posture, but chances are that a lot of us haven’t really given this too much thought. Sure, no one wants to end up permanently stooped over, or to find ourselves suffering from chronic back pain, but what does good posture mean beyond appearance? What does it mean for our bodies?

Good posture goes beyond looks. It helps us to stand, walk, sit, and lie in positions with the least amount of strain on the muscles and ligaments activated during movement. It also keeps our bones and joints in alignment, and it helps to support the ligaments holding the spine together to reduce the likelihood of injury.

Poor posture, on the other hand, can lead to strain and cause our bodies to be out of alignment. Stress, obesity, pregnancy, weak muscles, tight muscles, bad working posture, and high-heeled shoes are all major contributors to poor posture.

Luckily, over time many poor posture habits can be reversed by simply practicing good posture.

Follow these instructions to maintain the proper seated and standing positions:

Proper Sitting Position
-Keep your feet flat on the floor or up on a footrest if they don’t touch the ground
-Do not cross your legs. our ankles should rest on the floor (or footrest) in front of your knees
-Sit forward enough in your chair so that there is a small gap between the backs of your knees and your chair.
-Your knees should not be positioned over your feet.
-Relax your shoulders and hold your forearms parallel to the ground.
-Avoid sitting in the same position for long periods of time.

Proper Standing Position
-Maintain the bulk of your weight on the balls of your feet.
-Keep your knees slightly bent. Do not lock them!
-Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
-Let your arms hang naturally at your sides.
-Tuck your stomach slightly in.
-Keep your head level so that your earlobes are in line with your shoulders.
-Shift your weight from your toes to your heels, or one foot to the other, if you have to stand for a long time.

Your Health Matters presents: Is it Normal to feel Anxiety?

Dear Friends and Followers,

Anxiety is a perfectly normal response to stressors, like being caught in up a dangerous situation, taking a test, or having to make an important decision, but when anxiety becomes a constant response or a response to inappropriate situations, it becomes problematic.

Anxiety affects many people throughout their lives. For some, it is merely situational, but for others, anxiety is constant and can lead to disorders. These include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and social anxiety disorder.

Let HBN Help you feel less Anxious!https://hbnaturals.com/katharine

Some causes of anxiety include:
-stress
-trauma
-thyroid disorders
-dysfunctional serotonin
-excessive alcohol consumption
-caffeine and sugar intake
-hormonal imbalance

Physical and psychological symptoms of anxiety include:
-muscle tension
-chest tightness
-heart palpitations
-high blood pressure
-insomnia
-digestive problems
-panic attacks
-irritability
-difficulty concentrating
-restlessness
-sweating
-anxiousness
-inability to socialize

Psychotropic drugs and cognitive behavioral therapy are the conventional methods for anxiety treatment, and with an estimated one-third of the population suffering from anxiety, it is no doubt that the number of medications is equally high.

However, there are many natural remedies for anxiety out there that have been proven effective without the adverse side effects. These include several changes to diet and lifestyle.

Visit Heart and Body Naturals for your Natural Approach to Anxiety

Here are some natural, proactive lifestyle changes that can help to reduce the symptoms of anxiety:

Avoid Sugary and Processed Foods
Consuming foods with a high glycemic index, like processed and fast foods, can contribute to anxiety and depression. Additionally, sugar and refined carbohydrates can cause blood sugar levels to fluctuate wildly, increasing anxiety, nervousness and fatigue.

Alcohol and Caffeine
Alcohol and caffeine can both enhance anxiety symptoms by causing tension, moodiness, and the jitters. Reduce anxiety by avoiding alcohol completely, or by limiting your intake to 1–3 drinks per week, with no more than two at a time. Limit coffee or black tea to no more than one cup per day.

Ashwagandha
Ashwagandha, a powerful herb, is often used as a natural remedy for anxiety, as it helps to stabilize the body’s response to stress. Ashwagandha improves focus, reduces fatigue, and helps to fight anxiety without the attending side effects of anti-anxiety medications.

Kava Root
Kava root is used to treat anxiety by stimulating dopamine receptors in the brain, which induces euphoria and a sense of wellbeing. It is a great alternative to anti-anxiety medications because it is non-addictive and non-hypnotic, but still increases positive mood and relaxation. Kava should be taken under the guidance of a health care provider, as it has been known to interact with certain medications.

Magnesium
Because magnesium is a common deficiency in adults, you should consider supplementing as it is great for relaxing muscles and the nervous system.

Lavender Oil
Lavender is a natural sedative, and it helps reduce anxiety by allowing the body to relax.

Physical Activity
Physical activity helps to reduce stress, improve sleep, reduce inflammation, increase energy, and boost confidence. It takes around half an hour of sustained exercise to see the effects on anxiety levels.

Dear Health Enthusiast,

Do you think you maybe have a food allergy but aren’t sure? Maybe you are experiencing fatigue, skin flare-ups, mood swings, asthma, arthritis, or nutrient deficiencies, but you are reluctant to medicate.

An elimination diet is a short-term eating plan that is a great starting point for pinpointing what food, if any, may be causing your symptoms.

Most elimination diets cut out all common allergens, including:
-gluten
-dairy
-soy
-refined/added sugar
-peanuts
-corn
-alcohol
-eggs, in some cases
-packaged, processed or fast foods

So how do you go about starting an elimination diet?

Follow these steps:
-Stop eating all of the common allergens from the food list for at least three weeks.
-Be sure to read food labels carefully to make sure you’re really avoiding even trace amounts of these foods.
-Keep a food journal during this time to record how you’re feeling on a daily basis.
-At the three week mark, start to reintroduce one food group at a time. Eat the food daily for 1–2 weeks and record your symptoms, taking note of any changes in symptoms between the elimination and reintroduction phases.
-If symptoms return, you can confirm that this food is a trigger by eliminating it once again.
-The goal is to see if the symptoms clear up when the food is removed a second time.

This process can be somewhat lengthy, but it is a good way to pinpoint and remove foods that cause negative symptoms.

Try this incredible, simple meal that is a great, elimination diet approved recipe:

Ingredients
-1 cup brown rice, rinsed well
-2 cups low sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
-1 15oz. can kidney beans, rinsed
-1 tsp cumin, plus more to sprinkle on top
-1 tsp salt
-2 avocados, sliced
-2 green onions, chopped

Instructions
-Bring 2 cups of chicken broth to a boil
-Add 1 cup rice. Return to boil, then lower heat and cover. Simmer for 30-40 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed
-Stir to fluff. Remove from heat and allow to stand for five minutes
-While the rice is still warm, mix in the kidney beans, salt, and cumin.
-Place some of the avocado slices and chopped green onions on top, and sprinkle with an additional dash of cumin.
-Enjoy!

Dear Health Enthusiast ,

Most of us know that a good night’s sleep is important, but many of us don’t actually make those eight to nine hours of sleep each night a priority. But if you have ever spent a restless night, you are well aware how you are going to feel the next day – irritable, tired, and out of sorts.

For some, this is a regular occurrence, which can have many, more severe consequences, including:
-poor concentration and focus
-difficulty with memory
-impaired motor coordination
-high blood pressure
-weakened immunity
-weight gain
-accidents (caused by fatigue)

If you’ve experienced insomnia, whether temporary or chronic, you may be wondering what can be done for it outside of medicating. Luckily, there are some steps you can take that do not involve medications that can make you groggy, or that can even become habit-forming.

Here are some things to consider to achieve better sleep:

Diet
Avoid spicy, sugary, and greasy foods before bed that can cause heartburn and restlessness. This includes caffeine and alcohol as well.

Routine
Set a nighttime routine that you follow each night, and get up at the same time each morning. To work up to this, maybe start by cutting 15 minutes off of your typical bedtime until you reach a bedtime that will allow for a full eight to night hours.

Exercise
Performing sleep inducing exercises can help relieve stress and restlessness – two causes of insomnia. Yoga or any aerobic exercise are especially good for sleep.

Gadgets
The blue light that cell phones, computers, and tablets emit suppresses naturally occurring melatonin, the hormone responsible for regulating sleep. So limit gadget use in bed or close to your bedtime.

Essential Oils
Lavender is a natural sedative and is great for promoting sleep. Mix 1 cup of water and 4-5 drops of essential oil in a spray bottle. Mist around your bedroom before going to sleep.

A warm drink before bed is yet another way to get the body and mind in a relaxed state. Try this soothing Banana Peel Tea before you hit the pillow:

Ingredients
-¼-1/2 banana, including the peel
-1 cup water
-Optional: Dash of cinnamon

Instructions
-In a small pot, combine water and banana. Bring to a boil. Simmer 10-20 minutes
-Add cinnamon if desired
-Strain and enjoy

Here are some other night time drinks to try:

Pink Moon Milk, or tart cherry juice, is a natural source of melatonin.
https://heartbeetkitchen.com/2017/recipes/pink-moon-milk-sleep-tonic/

Chamomile Lavender Latte includes powerful and natural relaxants.

https://helloglow.co/chamomile-lavender-latte/

Turmeric Golden Milk is great for inflammation and balancing blood-sugar.

Dear Mindful Practitioner,

Many of us work hard to eat right and exercise our bodies, but often the mind gets overlooked when it comes to our health.

Meditation often considered an exercise for the brain, is a great way to focus on the health of the mind. Through this mindful practice, the pituitary gland in the brain secretes hormones called endorphins, which result in an amplified feeling of wellbeing.

People often use meditation for stress relief, but there are many other benefits of creating a meditation practice, including:

Anxiety
Relieving stress through meditation has also been known to lessen anxiety, thus creating a calm space for the mind to relax by being present in the moment.

Emotional Health
Routine meditation has been found to decrease inflammatory chemicals in the brain that can affect mood, emotions, and cause depression, which allows for more opportunity to focus on a more positive outlook on life.

Self-Awareness
Taking the time to sit alone can lead to a greater understanding of self and how that self-corresponds to other people.

Sleep
Because meditation settles the mind and body, it is a great practice for helping people with falling asleep and staying asleep.

Pain
Pain is connected to a person’s state of mind, so by relieving stress and balancing the mind and body, a person becomes better equipped to manage pain.

To start your meditation practice, it’s a good idea to set a routine, even if you are starting with just a few minutes a day. The best way to do that is to choose a good time when you can take a few moments to yourself to find a quiet, relaxing spot (parents, this may even be the bathroom!).

Once you are set up with your time and spot, find a comfortable position to either sit on the floor or in a chair – your eyes will be closed for this.

  1. Set Your Intention
    Come to your meditation ready to bring yourself relief, to connect, relax, or decompress. Whatever your reason for choosing meditation, this is what you want to come to the practice with.
  2. Relax the Body
    Once you are seated with your eyes closed, you want to focus on your breath, and how it is coming in and out of the body as you breathe. Move through your body in your mind and take note of any tension or pain. When you come to this area, stop for a moment and focus on sending your breath to that area.
  3. Pay Attention to Senses
    Keeping your mind focused on the sensations you are feeling is a good way to keep the mind centered, or to keep it from wandering.
  4. Come Back to the Body
    If you do find your mind wandering, that’s okay, just keep bringing your thoughts back to your breath until the end of your meditation.

This is not going to be easy at first, but the benefits of meditation make it worth it to keep on trying. It does get easier!

Dear Reader,

Incredibly, 75 to 90 percent of all doctors office visits are related to conditions that are the result of stress. Unchecked stress can wreak havoc on the body, and in chronic cases it can lead to heart disease, diabetes, weight gain, mental disorders, digestive disorders, and even cancer. This is possible because chronic stress changes our hormones, which can cause an increase in inflammation, which is the root of many medical problems.

We can’t always control the amount of stress that enters into our lives, but we can change how it is we react to them. The human body is designed to respond to stress, but it is how we handle it that causes the problem.

With practice, we can learn how to release some of our stress through many productive measures.

Here’s are some ways:

Exercise and Yoga
Exercise is one of the best stress relieving activities because it releases endorphins, the chemical in the brain that acts as the body’s natural pain-killer. Exercise also helps to improve sleep, which in turn helps to relieve stress.

Meditation
Meditation is proven to decrease stress, worry, and anxiety through a mindful practice of centered relaxation and breathing (breathing exercises below).

Nutrient-Dense Diet
A diet rich in essential vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, electrolytes, amino acids, and antioxidants works to help your brain handle stress, which has the same effect on the entire body.

Time in Nature
Spending time outside in nature has a calming effect on the mind and body, and it helps to create a sense of wellbeing.

Breathing exercises have long been used for stress relief. Whether you are in the car, in a tense situation, or seated in a relaxed position in a quiet space, breathing exercises have an immediate effect.

Give these exercises a try:

Pursed Lip Breathing
Take a breath for about 2 counts. Then pucker your lips and exhale for 4 counts. Do this for a few rounds.

Diaphragmatic Breathing
Put one hand on your chest and the other on your belly. As you breathe in deeply for about 2 seconds, your belly should stick out a bit. Feel the air expanding your stomach and then breathe out slowly through the lips.

Yoga Breathing
Place your right thumb over your right nostril as you breathe in through the left nostril. Then take your right ring finger and place it over your left nostril as you exhale from the right one. Then switch sides.

4-7-8
Inhale for a count of 4. Hold the breath in for 7 counts, then release it in 8 counts.epeat this at least three times.

Breath Counting
Take a few deep breaths, then settle into a pattern of “normal” breathing. When you exhale, count “one.” The next time, count “two.” Do this until you have exhaled (and counted to) five, then start the pattern over.

Dear Health Enthusiast,

The word detox might inspire images of someone starving on just lemon water and cayenne, or maybe you think of that friend that did a juice cleanse and had a migraine for three days. detox doesn’t have to be that extreme! It can simply mean that you focus your efforts on changing some of your routines to help create a more balanced mind and body.

Due to environmental exposure, our bodies can become overwhelmed by toxins that enter into your body via water, air, food, pharmaceuticals, or other drugs.

Cleansing the body does not have to be as extreme or restrictive as some diets you’ve maybe heard of, or even tried yourself. In fact, simple changes, such as considering changes to the following are great ways to start the detoxification process:

Water
Start each day with a glass of spring or filtered water and the juice of one lemon to help flush toxins and alkalize the body. Be sure to also continue drinking water throughout the day.

Vegetable Juice
Drink a freshly made vegetable juice daily that includes hearty greens such as kale and spinach helps to cleanse the cells of toxins.

Oils
Eliminate toxic oils from your diet such as vegetable, peanut, and canola. Instead, use oils high in omega-3s, -6s, and -9s, such as extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, hemp oil, or avocado oil.

Tea
Teas such as dandelion, milk thistle, and nettles are great for detoxification.

Raw Fruits and Vegetables
Fruit and vegetables contain enzymes that improve nutrient absorption and aid digestion.

Sugar
Avoid white sugars and any other artificial sweeteners, as they can toxify the body. Instead, opt for natural sweeteners such as stevia, honey, coconut sugar, date sugar, molasses, or maple syrup.

White Flour
Consuming white flour overworks the digestive system and can cause digestive disorders. Substitute with other flours such as spelt flour, kamut flour, quinoa flour, or brown rice flour

Kick off your morning with this Sunrise Detox Smoothie:

Ingredients
-1 frozen banana
-1/2 cup frozen mango
-1/2 cup pineapple
-1/2 cup frozen raspberries
-1 cup coconut water
-juice of one lemon

Instructions
Place ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

This smoothie is layered to look like a sunrise, so to get that gradient effect, blend the raspberries and other fruit separately and then pour in layers to create the effect. Of course, it tastes just the same and has the same benefits if you just throw it all together too.

Sex!???

Dear Health Enthusiast,

Although often considered a ‘taboo’ subject, issues with sexual performance are far more common than most people think. The trouble arises when prescription medication fails to deliver desired results, which an overwhelming amount of people experience – between 10 to 52% of men and 25% to 63% of women. As sexual health has always been a personal matter and one which can easily become entangled with issues of self-worth and self-image, the failure of medical drugs to deliver expected results can contribute to low levels of self-esteem and emotional distress.

The fact of the matter is that just as every relationship is different, every BODY is different too, and will respond in largely contrasting ways to medication. Functional medicine, however, focuses on helping the individual to not only figure out what is best for their unique needs and symptoms but also how to PREVENT it from occurring again and lower the risks of the condition worsening, using natural treatment options.

Issues surrounding sexual performance can include (but are not limited to):

Erectile dysfunction in men
Lowered libido
Vaginal dryness
Sexual performance anxiety
All of these conditions have in the past been treated with pharmaceutical drugs, a large amount of which can have negative side-effects when used over a long period of time. With the help of natural remedies, many people have seen their symptoms decrease significantly and sometimes even completely subside.

What Are Some Functional Medicine Techniques?

By looking at the individual as a whole as a means of treating their sexual performance issues, functional health professionals can identify the root cause of the issue instead of simply making it disappear temporarily. The only way to truly heal from an issue like this is to dig deep and find the root cause – whether it be physical, mental, environmental, emotional, or spiritual. These are the elements which functional health focuses on in order to get to the true cause of the issues like these that often manifest themselves physically.

In terms of sexual health, it is of utmost importance to recognize and acknowledge your own struggles with performance. Not being open to these issues is often the primary cause of them worsening and festering over time. Learning as much as you can about the issue – be it a hormonal imbalance due to anxiety, a nutritional issue, or something else entirely – is the best and only way to make effective changes.

There are foods you can include in your diet that boost sexual health and increase libido – while we can’t necessarily promise they will increase your performance, improving your nutrition WILL help to ensure that your sexual health is improved significantly!

Foods to boost sexual health include:

Spinach
Dark chocolate
Peppers
Green tea
Oysters
Pesto
Ginger
Pumpkin seeds
Bananas
Potatoes
Fatty Fish
Coffee
Red wine
What combinations of these will you try?

What’s the Deal with Caffeine?

Dear Reader,

Caffeine is surprisingly one of the world’s most popular mood-altering drugs. Whether it be consumed via coffee, tea, soda, chocolate, or even in some medicines, caffeine is a highly sought after stimulant.

In fact, billions of people worldwide drink coffee, soda, or some other form of caffeine every day.

Luckily for the masses, caffeine is considered safe for consumption and even has many touted health benefits, but this only applies to consumption in moderation. And while there are standards for moderation, caffeine interacts differently with each person’s physiology, so what is moderate for one person may be excessive for another.

However, most of us have no idea if we are consuming too much because we never take a break from our beloved caffeine to feel the effects, but if you are experiencing any of the following, you may want to consider taking a break to see how your body will respond:

-insomnia
-high blood pressure
-anxiety
-indigestion
-low fertility

Cutting or reducing your caffeine intake could have the following positive effects:

-better sleep
-better mood
-healthier teeth
-reduced anxiety
-better digestion

Of course, as with any stimulant, cutting back or quitting is often accompanied by an uneasy period as our bodies go through withdrawal. We may find ourselves feeling fatigued, irritable, depressed, and unfortunately, this is typically topped off with a headache. Thankfully, this is temporary, and there are many alternative ways to give us the boost we are missing from our beloved caffeine.

Water should always be the number one drink to replace any beverage you remove from your diet. The added hydration will help you with your withdrawal symptoms, and being hydrated will give you a natural boost of energy anyway!

Here are some other ways to keep your energy up as you cut back or remove caffeine from your diet:

Ginkgo Biloba
Ginkgo is an herbal extract from the nut of the Ginkgo tree. It has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine to increase blood flow to the brain and body. Consumed as a tea, a tincture, or in capsule form, Ginkgo has been known to increase focus, wellbeing, and energy.

Ginseng
Ginseng is an extract derived from the ginseng root. Consumed as a tea, a tincture, or in capsule form, ginseng increases blood flow and has a stimulating effect, much like coffee. 

Vitamin B12
Vitamin B12 is a great supplement for jump-starting your day. B12 is known to enhance energy and mental clarity. Taken as a pill or a tincture, B12 is best absorbed under the tongue.

Teeccino and Cafix
These natural caffeine substitutes are made from grains, figs, chicory, and beetroot designed to mimic the flavor of coffee, but without the caffeine.

Stretch 
A good stretch in the morning boosts oxygen metabolism in the blood, which sends oxygen to the muscles and brain to increase alertness and focus. 

Apple
Consider starting your day with an apple, or having one as a snack when you start to feel yourself lag. The fructose in an apple boosts metabolism into energy production.

Sparkling Water
For soda drinkers, a can of cold sparkling water can wake up the senses by mimicking the experience of drinking a soda, but without the added sugar and caffeine.

As with any major change, it is important to stay open to the fact that this is a transitory time, and it is going to take a moment for your body to adjust.
