Why Does Cooking Oil Matter If You Have Alopecia?

The oils you consume matter. A lot. Oil is a major culprit in chronic inflammation. It's not the only one, but it can be a big one. How oils cause and exacerbate inflammation mainly comes down to their omega 6 to omega 3 ratio. Ideal ratio is 1 to 1. But in an average modern day diet, people stand at around 40 to 1 or[...]

Eating Oranges Are Not the Same As Taking Vitamin C Pills

An orange does NOT only contain vitamin C. An orange contains hundreds of other antioxidants (vitamin C is just ONE type of antioxidant) and phytonutrients.

Healthy Snacks That Boost Immunity: Don’t Haul Processed Treats

My daughter doesn’t usually snack throughout the day. She has her three main meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) where she eats very well, plus one snack in the afternoon right after school, in the form of a green smoothie or a piece of fruit like a whole apple (do those even count as snacks?). Not snacking constantly throughout the day is actually a good thing.[...]

We Don’t Need More Masks

The more I look, the more I realize how severely lacking we are (the world in general) when it comes to health education. We rush to hospitals. We even build more hospitals now, even though any medical treatment is only supportive in nature until your body cures on its own.
