Here is some nice information about smoothies which I found through the internet that you can look at
If you live in a city, you might be aware that there’s a lot of junk in the air, when you go outside.
Here, where I live on the Wasatch Front of Utah, our air quality, during the winter, can be worse than China’s on some days. On the day I wrote this post, our PM 2.5 (fine particulate pollution) was 850% the EPA’s upper limit.
Denver, and other mountain valleys, can be similar. When warm air traps the cold air in the “bowl” of the valley, we can’t breathe down here.
The CDC estimates 2,000 of us die, directly of the air quality, every year. This doesn’t account for how many of us are at higher risk for cancer and other problems, later on, from the exposure.
And of course, people with asthma and other respiratory and pulmonary problems are at very high risk.
What I didn’t know, until recent years, is that indoor air pollution can be worse. While particulate pollution is higher outside, chemical pollution can be exponentially higher, inside.
Why that’s so, and what I did to clean up virtually 100 percent of it in my own home, are the subject of this post.
Indoor Air Pollutants
The reason pollution is so high in our homes isn’t just related to nail polish, hairspray, air fresheners, laundry detergent, and chemical cleaning supplies. Many of us got rid of those things long ago, because they contain such toxic ingredients.
But we also have exposure to formaldehyde, heavy metals, and noxious gases from sources that are harder for us to control.
Here is some superb information regarding making smoothies which I ran across on the net that you should look through
Adrenal fatigue is still a fairly new term that is being used to describe a set of symptoms including body aches, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, low blood pressure, lightheadedness, loss of body hair, and skin discoloration. (source) To understand what adrenal fatigue is, it's important to note what the adrenal glands do.
The adrenal glands sit atop the kidneys and function as exocrine glands that produce a variety of essential-to-life hormones including adrenaline, aldosterone, and cortisol. In short, these hormones are responsible for regulating the body's metabolism, immune system suppression, regulation of blood pressure and electrolyte balance, and the rapid response to stress. (Think: flight or fight response.)
After long periods of extreme stress or dysfunction of the adrenal glands (such as with certain diseases or the presence of tumors, etc.) there may be an imbalance of one or more of those hormones either from over- or under-production. To confirm the imbalance or inadequate levels of the adrenal hormones, blood tests are needed. But those common symptoms are also a good indicator that something is wrong. To sum up: adrenal fatigue can be pretty debilitating. (source)
The best way to treat suspected adrenal fatigue is to first visit with a healthcare professional. Some doctors are still a little skeptical of the term “adrenal fatigue.” Naturopathic and alternative medicine practitioners are more likely to diagnose and help treat the condition. In any case, it's important to find out if there are any other health conditions that could be causing the symptoms. Then follow a treatment plan. Lifestyle and diet changes are usually necessary to... Read More »
