Allergies come from undigested proteins in the blood, which should never happen. If one is getting an allergic reaction, take extra digestive enzymes on an empty stomach so the enzymes digest the foreign proteins in the blood.
NOTE:the body produces 3000mg of cholesterol daily. The maximum amount of cholesterol obtained from fatty food one can consume is 800mg. The brain and nervous system need cholesterol.
High Blood Pressure
Blood pressure is usually from excess salt (out of balance of salt and potassium). The kidneys then trigger the blood pressure. Balance the salt by adding potassium to your diet, or eat potassium rich foods and reduce salt intake.
Weight gain happens when there is too much sugar (glucose) at one time in the blood stream. A small part of the glucose is used for energy and the rest is changed into fat. In this condition your body is in “Fat Making Mode”.
With a balanced diet and the correct supplements as listed below, you can change your body in “Fat Burning Mode”. Fat is used only to convert into energy. So the need for exercise is advised so the body can use the fat to make energy during exercise.
Fat burners will only work when the body is supplied with the above supplements and the diet is balanced.
DO NOTmiss meals or starve yourself. Missing meals or starving slows down the body. The body does not use up all the glucose from the meal and the remaining glucose converts to fat and increases weight.
Cramps, Restless Sleep, Tired when waking up
Cramps are from a lack of potassium that has been sweated out or lost because of excess salt intake, and from a lack of magnesium that allows extra loss of potassium. Potassium is also lost from drinking alcohol which speeds up the loss by 5 times.
Restless sleep and tiredness occurs when the body is not resting when sleeping and it depends on feeding the nerves with Calcium and Magnesium.
Eat oily fish 3 times a week and lots of nuts and seeds as listed in the sectionEssential Fatty Acids. Balance it with good proteins, carbohydrates that contain fibres to give you a steady supply of glucose. Glucose then turns to energy in the brain and gives you mental sharpness and alertness.
Have a pack of mixed nuts (macademia, almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and/or pecanuts) with dried fruits (raisins, dates, cranberries, mango, etc) in the car or at your desk and eat them through the day.
The combination is a balance of natural proteins, good oils, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and fibres. Have fresh fruit if possible in the car and eat them as you are driving. Better alternatives than cool drinks and junk food.
