Homemade Ice Cream

Wow, I did not see this coming! Homemade Banana Ice Cream

banana icecream

Many times we do detoxes or cleanses that feel like we are depriving ourselves of anything that is sweet. Dessert is much more than the sweet we have after dinner; its social and ritual actions are much greater than the quick burst of energy we get from the sugars.
By using fruit and xylitol, your blood sugar levels won’t spike as much. You can probably use maple syrup or honey if xylitol causes bloating, but this recipe is yummy and delicious all the same.

The Stress/Depression Connection

We all know that high amounts of stress are a part of our daily lives. How can we not feel overwhelmed with all of our daily obligations, deadlines, and commitments. In the office, I ask people every day about the things they do to de-stress. Common activities that help manage their stressors are meditation, walking, journaling, vacationing, being in nature, yoga, artistic or musical creative activities, working out, prayer, and deep breathing.

A stressor is anything that we perceive as a stress; and it changes the way we act and our physical well being. Family, home, and work are constant stressors if you let them be. Stessors could be juggling time to manage deadlines and schedules, physical disabilities or injuries, financial concerns and worries, contact with toxic fumes, foods, and people. They can be as small as a bad hair day, or as big as a death or illness of a loved one. Constant stressors overwork your adrenal hormones, and put added stress on other areas of your body, including the kidney, liver, brain, heart, muscles, immune system, and other hormones. The constant release of cortisol from your adrenal glands can do so much harm, and lead to many symptoms that may be seemingly unrelated, including diabetes, menopause symptoms, thyroidisms, auto-immune diseases, neurodegenerative diseases (senility, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's Disease), depression, and anxiety.

The new ultra books allow you to touch the screen, like your other portable devices, and will eventually add insult to injury. If you learn about the types of stress and repetitive injuries that your new devices will cause, you can prevent them from occurring.

 

I see 3 types of technology injuries in my office:

Tips for Boosting Your Immune System

  1. Wash your hands often. Research shows that antibacterial soaps don't offer any more protection against germs than regular soaps. Bacteria are on a mission of survival, and in time they adapt to their environment and resist the antibacterial qualities of the soap. Best bet: washing your hands (front, back and fingers) with regular soap for at least 15 seconds will wash off 90% of germs. A good trick for kids: 15 seconds goes by quickly when they sing their favorite song as they soap up.
