Some individuals do not support setting new year resolutions, and in fact there is some evidence that individuals who set resolutions may be less likely to achieve them.
However, I am a proponent of redefining and clarifying one’s intentions, whether it relates to nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, or something else!
Today, I would like to discuss a few ideas for setting meaningful intentions as the new year begins.
This week, I am pleased to present a guest article written by Virgil Anderson. Virgil was unfortunately exposed to asbestos in the workplace at a young age and diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma. At the time of his diagnosis, Virgil was without health insurance and turned to the National Cancer Institute for treatment. He also discovered information on integrative therapies for cancer such as Ayurvedic medicine. I am thrilled to present his article providing an overview of Ayurveda and evidence for its use in combination with traditional cancer treatments. Enjoy!
Does green tea (Camellia sinensis, Theaceae) prevent cancer? There may be some evidence. Today I am sharing an infographic I made about green tea and its anti-inflammatory properties. This infographic is not comprehensive, so if you are interested in the topic I encourage you to check out this website which discusses more of the evidence. Some clinical studies have not demonstrated green tea's efficacy at inhibiting cancer. This could be due to the different varieties of tea (black, green, white, etc.), regional differences in growth (higher level of secondary metabolites in soil-rich areas), or the population studied (genetic and environmental differences). Hope you enjoy my infographic and I encourage you to investigate the research further. For now, I'm going to continue enjoying my green tea and lemon each morning. Enjoy!
Today I’d like to talk about the implications of high-fat dairy on cardiovascular health compared to low-fat intake.
Today, I am going to discuss one reason why full-fat dairy products may be better than low-fat dairy products. I am going to focus on the aspect of sugar content, inflammation, and type 2 diabetes in this post, but will focus on other aspects, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer, in my next posts!
