In today’s fast paced, hectic world, stress is common and considered a normal part of life. However long term, chronic stress can lead to a host of health problems if left unchecked. Constant mental and environmental stress can take a big toll on your health.

What you eat and drink on a daily basis plays an important role in how your body handles stress. If you eat poor quality foods that are heavily processed, genetically modified, high in refined sugar, refined white flour, refined vegetable oils, preservatives, food additives, hormones, and chemicals you will not give your body the crucial nutrients it needs to fight the effects of stress and maintain vibrant health.

Healing foods offer the best protection against stress. These amazing foods provide the important nutritional foundation you need to maintain a healthy immune system and protect your body from the effects of long term stress.

Healing foods are packed with key nutrients that nourish, repair, rejuvenate, and help heal the body so it can remain strong and healthy. Healing foods taste wonderful and are completely satisfying. Once you start eating these nutrient-rich, organic foods daily, you will no longer crave unhealthy foods with empty calories and little or no health benefits.

Foods That Reduce Stress

Top choices to eat on a daily basis include: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, acai berries, goji berries, blackberries, mulberries, golden berries, and maqui berries.

 

 

5. Wild Fish

wild fish

Wild fish is an excellent protein-rich food to eat for protecting your body from the effects of stress. Wild Fish contains Vitamins D and B-12, selenium, and omega-3 essential fatty acids that are so important for maintaining vibrant health and fighting stress. Omega-3 essential fatty acids help lower cortisol which is a stress hormone that can cause health problems if it remains elevated for extended periods of time.  A study published in “Molecular Nutrition and Food Research” in 2013 found that supplementing with fish oil for three weeks resulted in a measurable decrease in cortisol levels.

Top choices to eat several times per week include: Wild salmon, wild sablefish, wild Alaskan cod, wild Alaskan halibut, wild sardines.

6. Organic Raw or Sprouted Nuts and Seeds

nuts

Organic raw nuts and seeds contain protein, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, fiber, zinc, B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, and enzymes which all work together to fight the effects of stress. Soaking and sprouting raw nuts and seeds before you eat them removes the anti-nutrients, increases the vitamins and minerals, activates the enzymes, and makes the nuts and seeds easier to digest.

Top choices to eat on a daily basis include: almonds, walnuts, pecans, Brazil nuts, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, and chia seeds.

7. Coconut

coconut

Coconut in all its forms is one of my favorite healing foods. The coconut oil, coconut meat, water, and milk are rich in potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper, selenium, B vitamins, amino acids, and fiber which all work together to help lower stress levels and protect your body from the effects of stress. Coconut contains lauric acid which is an important medium chain fatty acid that the liver uses for energy production instead of storing as fat. Coconut meat, coconut oil, and coconut milk also has antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. Coconut reduces cortisol levels and also has potent anti-inflammatory properties.

Top choices to eat on a daily basis include: extra virgin, raw coconut oil, young coconut meat, organic coconut milk, unsweetened coconut water, and unsweetened coconut flakes.

Once you start adding these fantastic health-promoting foods into your daily diet, they will help you successfully protect your body from the effects of long term stress so that you can enjoy radiant health and wellness. -Shelly Alexander

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?

By J. Davis III

Category: HEALTH
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES

trackingRecently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.

Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.

Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.

Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.

You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.

Here’s how it works...

“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”

“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”

Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.

Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.

“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…

What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?

Mind blown...

Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”

So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.

Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature works.
