IMPROVE YOUR DIGESTION WITH GOOD FOOD COMBINATIONS.

A good combination of foods will go a long way towards improved digestion and the absorption of nutrients. For this, there are a few simple rules we can implement into our eating habits.

Different foods require a different digestive process. Starchy vegetables like wheat, rice, corn and potatoes start their digestion in the mouth and work their way down to the intestines where nutrients are absorbed. The one of animal-derived proteins starts instead in the stomach, with the aid of hydrochloric acid which breaks them down into individual amino acids. When these two different food digestion processes operate at the same time, they cause problems like gas, indigestion, bloating and a diminished ability to absorb nutrients.

It is therefore best to consume proteins separately from a starchy food. Poor food combinations can prolong the digestion process to as long as 12 hours.

Good combinations:

1. Animal proteins combine well with each other and with raw or cooked non-starchy vegetables.

2. Starchy vegetables combine well with each other, legumes as well as raw or cooked

    non-starchy vegetables.

3. Nuts and seeds combine well with each other and dried fruits.

4. Fruits combine well only with other fruits and should be thought of as a snack instead of a meal.

    The exception of which are enzyme rich fruits like pineapple, papaya and mango. They cannot only be       combined with all other foods, but will also aid in digestion.

Each group of foods has a different digestion transit time. Fruits take the shortest time (20-30 min) and animal proteins the longest (3-4 hours). However, If you were to eat a fruit like an apple after a protein meal, it will sit for hours in the digestive tract (instead of minutes) causing gas, bloating and digestion problems. This is due to the fermentation of the sugars it contains. If you are, therefore, having a meal with all food groups, you can reduce digestion problems by simply consuming the foods with the shortest transit time first. The rule of “light to heavy” should be applied, meaning consuming fast transit-time foods prior to heavier ones.

 

THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF EMF.

There is a danger lurking all around us 24/7 but we are hardly aware of it because we can’t see, feel, hear, taste or smell it. This danger is called Electromagnetic Fields (EMF). They come from your cell phone, laptops, microwaves, power lines, WiFi, routers, cordless phones, smart meters, baby monitors and other wireless devices. 

EMF cause massive mitochondrial dysfunction due to free radical damage and an increase in DNA fragmentation. This has been linked to such diseases as leukemia, brain cancer, Lou Gehrig’s and Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, accelerated aging, depression and more. Children are the most at risk.  You can reduce these dangers by making lifestyle changes that include how you use the various devices. 

G5 is now entering the market on a global scale. It offers much faster downloads but much, much higher health risks, especially to the brain. We must therefore do whatever possible to shield ourselves from it.
