You may not know this but the USDA standards allow for 7.5% of raw whole chickens sold at the grocers to carry salmonella - but there is absolutely NO limit for salmonella contamination in chicken parts…http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Are you having trouble falling asleep? When you take melatonin does it give you a morning “hangover”? Instead of taking sleep drugs, what you probably really need is ornithine. The amino acid ornithine works naturally to help you sleep through the night. Ornithine breaks down ammonia and residual alcohol in the body and brain and literally cleans out the brain sleep centers while helping you use your available melatonin. Ornithine also prompts the release of  your own natural growth hormones to accelerate the metabolism of excess body fat, aids in liver regeneration, stimulates insulin secretion and helps insulin work for muscle building. 2,500mg at bedtime is what I recommend for an adult. Make sure it is just plain ole ornithine and not mixed with arginine if you want sleep success. Arginine is great in the morning for waking the brain up.

The only thing sadder than having your doctor put you antidepressants would be finding out that those antidepressants causes birth defects in your child. It is not uncommon at all for doctors to put pregnant ladies on antidepressants - but they don’t really know better because Big Pharma told them they are safe for pregnancy. Well, now Big Pharma is returning to court - once again - because the antidepressants Lexapro and Celexa can cause birth defects. The latest lawsuit reads that “…(Big Pharma) fraudulently concealed the true risks associated with Lexapro and Celexa…” This is just one more of the multiplicity of blatant lies and frauds perpetrated by Big Pharma. Bottom line, if you are depressed you more than likely just need a good nutritionist and perhaps a successful and experienced therapist or spiritual counselor. If your doc writes the prescription for antidepressants without warning you of side effects or offering diet/nutrition/lifestyle suggestions, they are bad docs – very bad docs.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

The older you get, the less sleep it seems you need. Scientists have studied how the supplement lipoic acid can reset the body’s biological clock-circadian rhythm. Lipoic acid actually helped restore a more normal circadian rhythm in older animals even while it helped with stress resistance, cardiac function, hormonal balance, muscle performance, glucose metabolism and the whole aging process in general. Some one-third of our genes are directly influenced by circadian rhythms and when the circadian rhythm goes whack, the body is more susceptible to cancer, heart disease, liver dysfunction, inflammation, hormonal imbalance and many other diseases. The body normally produces the active “R” form of lipoic acid. Alpha lipoic acid is a combo of the natural and the synthetic forms of lipoic acid. Studies show that R-lipoic acid benefits kick in at about 600mg a day – much more than you can usually get in a healthy diet.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Treating Childhood asthma with corticosteroid drugs can suppress growth according to The Cochrane Review. Studies find that children’s growth slows within the first year of treatment. Corticosteroids only treat the asthma symptoms. While they can prevent death from an asthma attack, they never solve the problem – only make new ones like: obesity, convulsions, depression, euphoria, insomnia, mood swings, and personality changes. The worse side effect of corticosteroids are that they suppress the immune system. I’ve found that a majority of asthma cases improve tremendously going off of sugar, gluten and casein. Some even resolve completely. The big question is: why the increased numbers of asthma cases these days? I blame both vaccines and chemical-laden processed foods for most asthma cases. Another big factor in asthma is a hypo thyroid. If your child has asthma you can actually do lots of simple things to improve their condition – or, just keep on medicating them.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Popcorn can be an awesome snack cooked up with organic grapeseed oil, soused with melted organic butter and powdered lightly with sea salt. Yummie! But, bags of nuked popcorn (you know, the 2 minute variety), is a whole different story. First off, the butter flavoring in microwave popcorn uses a nasty chemical called diacetyl - which is linked to lung disease. And that’s just the first problem… The bags it is popped in are made with the non-stick Teflon PFOA and can cause cancer, thyroid disease, child development problems, birth defects and increases infertility by 154%. Nuking the microwave popcorn sends the Teflon chemicals into the popcorn and eventually into the blood. Most of the cancers from PFOA manifests in the liver, pancreas, testicles, prostate and mammary glands. And movie popcorn… don’t even get me started on how bad that one is. When we go to the movies, we take our own organic popped popcorn with us. No one has turned us away from the theater yet.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

You go to a hospital because you just want to get better and what do they feed you? Crap… A whopping 90% of all diseases are diet and nutrition related. How are you going to recover your health if you are still eating the same stuff that made you sick in the first place? It really is very simple: Dieticians are responsible to feed a whole host of patients, visitors, staff and various passer-by’s on a limited budget with “X” amount of dollars to spend within a broken food pyramid. While you need targeted nutrition to recover your health, what you get is the standard American diet or worse. Standard diet fare quite likely put you in this living morgue in the first place. I’m certain that a lack of drugs and surgery didn’t bring you to a health crisis! One good nutritionist is all it often takes to save your life. A nutritionist will look specifically at your nutritional needs, your health crisis, your lifestyle and diet and design a workable health plan that will begin to reverse the process of disease. THERE ARE NO SHORTCUTS! So quit praying for a miracle drug to cure your problem but rather “Go thy way and sin no more”. Nothing changes if nothing changes…http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

Three out of four children don’t get enough fruits and vegetables in their daily diet. Less than half of all children even eat fruit every day and a little better than half eat vegetables daily. Children require 3-5 servings of vegetables and 2-4 servings of fruit daily to maintain optimal health. Children do eat more fruit than vegetables though because fruit is often more readily available and tastes better. Children and adults both need plenty of fruit and vegetables in the daily diet to reduce heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer rates. The World Health Organization recommends daily minimum intake of 400 grams of fruit and vegetables total. And that is just a minimum to maintain health – that is, if you are already healthy…

Did you know that essential oils make great food preservatives? A recent study in the Journal of Food Science shows how essential oils can be used in food packaging to extend shelf-life and preserve freshness of food products naturally! Essential oils are concentrated oily extracts of aromatic liquids and volatile compounds extracted from roots, peels, leaves, seeds, fruits and bark of different plants. Essential oils are absolutely full of life-saving antioxidants that scavenge free radicals, neutralize peroxides, prevent fat oxidation, and more. Essential oils are also wonderfully antimicrobial. Adding essential oils to food packaging is dubbed “active or smart packaging” and knocks-out germs and strengthens film stretchability while improving moisture barriers to prevent food spoilage.http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/

If you freeze your blueberries, what happens? You actually improve the powerful antioxidant punch according to the latest food study. The blue color in blueberries is from anthocyanins - a group of antioxidant compounds. Freezing blueberries actually improves the availability of these antioxidants. This is because the ice crystals that form during freezing restructure the plant tissues, making the anthocyanins more available. Want to know the best part? Blueberries frozen for 5 months still retained their original potency. Blueberries help eliminate cancer-causing free radicals in the body and are great for your brain and nervous system along with the cardiovascular system, eyes and even the urinary tract. Could blueberries be one of the world’s healthiest food? Some people say they are. Make mine organic!http://blog.realhealthtalk.com/
