Don't Let Concerns Over Extra Calories Prevent You From Enjoying the Many Health Benefits of Wholesome Nuts
by Tony Isaacs
(The Best Years in Life) Wholesome nuts offer a world of health benefits, but many people avoid them due to concerns that the extra calories in nuts are potentially fattening. Such concerns could easily be addressed by substituting nuts for another menu item or else cutting down on other menu item portions. Cutting back on other food items may be easier than you think: recent studies have found that eating nuts actually helps curb appetite due to nuts increasing serotonin levels. Nuts also have plenty of fiber which makes you feel fuller.
Nuts are an excellent source of protein, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and more and they offer a wide variety of health benefits, particularly for the heart and cardiovascular system. The plentiful fiber found in nuts is heart healthy and is thought to play a role in preventing diabetes. Nuts are also rich in heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids and they contain vitamin E, which may help stop the development of plaque in the arteries. Arterial plaque can lead to chest pain, coronary artery disease, or a heart attack. Read More.
(Natural News) Personal trainer Bob Harper, who hosts the fitness competition program Biggest Loser, recently confirmed in a statement that he had suffered a heart attack two weeks prior. He was reportedly working out at a New York City gym when he collapsed, and a doctor at the gym administered CPR with paddles to keep him alive.
Harper spent more than a week in the hospital, and the Los Angeles-based host had to extend his stay in New York because he had not been given clearance from his doctors to fly home.
Many are wondering how someone like Harper, who espouses a healthy lifestyle, could have suffered from a heart attack at just 51 years of age. In his case, genetics could be to blame. His mother died of a heart attack, which is something he has long cited as one of the driving forces behind his interest in health and fitness. Having a parent with heart disease makes a person more likely to suffer from it themselves. This is considered a heart attack risk factor that cannot be changed, which is why those who already have the odds stacked against them due to genetics need to work on the factors they can change, such as diet and exercise.
While some people are expressing concern about working out after hearing about his heart attack during exercise, it is important to note that a 2015 study in the journal Circulation says that only 5 percent of people aged 35 to 65 who suffered sudden cardiac arrests were working out at the time. Moreover, it found that a person’s odds of surviving a heart attack were higher if it happened during exercise because they are more likely to be near others who can perform CPR or call an ambulance.
While intense exercise can technically trigger a heart attack, this is a lot less likely in a person who is already as fit as Harper was. Moreover, good health habits like exercise and a clean diet can help people recover more quickly from heart attacks and prevent them from recurring.
Since the life-threatening incident, Harper’s doctors have instructed him to follow the Mediterranean diet. He shared one of his heart-friendly dinners with his Twitter followers: branzino, a type of sea bass, with Brussels sprouts and a salad. The Mediterranean diet has been shown in countless studies to help protect the entire cardiovascular system, preventing the risk of peripheral artery disease, stroke, and heart attacks.
The diet focuses on a high consumption of foods like olive oil, beans, nuts, seeds, and whole grains. Fish and poultry are consumed in moderate amounts, while red meat is discouraged. Cheese and yogurt are the main sources of dairy in the diet but are only eaten in limited amounts, while some red wine is also allowed.
A study in Spain found that supplementing the diet with additional extra-virgin olive oil enhanced its protective effects. In fact, it was so effective that the study had to be ended early because the results were so clear that it would have been unethical for them to continue.
What won’t you find on the Mediterranean diet? High-fructose corn syrup, sugar, processed carbohydrates and processed foods in general are all prohibited. These are foods that should not be part of any diet because they are void of nutrients and loaded with hidden toxins.
Harper credits the company of his dog with helping him get through this challenging time, and he says he has been reading up on heart health. He has also had to modify his vigorous workout routine as his body recovers, taking a break from Crossfit and going for walks with his dog instead.
While those who are happy to find any excuse not to exercise are already using Harper’s situation as justification for their unhealthy habits, experts insist that the overall benefits of exercise for your heart far outweigh any risks.
Not qualified to make a for certain answer re: defibillator and CS, but my gut feeling is that CS on the wrist would not affect the electrics of something in the chest.
Especially with this product.http://tinyurl.com/hfm2zu7 which is CS in a gel form. You can just put a dab on a individual sore, or spread it completely over the rash. Then wrap it with a gauze bandage to keep it from getting on clothes, or bedding. This will keep it in contact longer. It is advised with all CS products that you re-apply until it does it's job.
I use this product and can tell you it works, but the decision is yours.
Give feed back on how it did.
Has anyone experienced like your heart racing uncontrollably. Yesterday night this happened to me. I found that it was common during pregnancy due to hormone imbalance. Has anyone else experienced this. Any advice?
water and coQ10
Directions? how much of each?
I agree that it's important to know what is causing the symptoms. I used to believe that I was experiencing heart attacks and actually ended up in the ER a couple of times (by ambulance) only to learn that I was experiencing panic attacks. Because the symptoms were synonymous with cardiac arrest, I always went to the ER. Now, I know the symptoms of the panic disorder.
Chest pains can result from any number of conditions, and without knowing what is causing them, it's impossible to develop a natural protocol to treat the condition, instead of the symptoms.
Get a complete physical and the lab work to determine what may (or, may not) be causing the symptoms. Then, you can treat the condition via natural / alternative methods.
Best wishes to you.

Aerobic exercises: Aerobic exercises safely increase your heart rate. Aerobic activities include hiking, water aerobics, cycling, swimming, running, kickboxing and dancing. Picking the right aerobic exercise should be based on your personal needs, abilities and what you enjoy doing. If you’re just starting off with exercise, it’s a good idea to begin with lower impact and gentler moves, like walking and swimming. Once your heart starts to become stronger you can move up to longer hours of dancing or cycling.
Resistance training: Resistance training involves the use of weights or any other mechanism which adds resistance. When muscles are met with resistance they require more oxygenated blood which in turn increases heart rate.
At first you can use your own body as resistance, like in a push-up or squat position, but over time you can add additional weight. It’s advised that you should complete eight to 12 repetitions of at least three sets.
Stretching: You may not think that stretching can get the heart pumping, but it definitely can and is necessary for good heart health. Stretching increases flexibility and improves blood flow, so you don’t have to work as hard. You can boost your stretching by partaking in different styles of yoga.

The information in the interview is really important IMO. - Dr. Starr shows the connection between low thyroid and Alzheimer’s as well as heart disease and general immunity. Other topics discussed include mold and allergy issues as well as the importance of Iodine and Lugols in balancing the thyroid.
It's free to listen to or download.
Dr. Starr is a medical doctor and homeopathic physician, Board Certified by the American Board of Pain Medicine. He is an international speaker and the acclaimed author of Hypothyroidism Type 2 – The Epidemic.
We are seeing a big upswing in chronic diseases today, in large part, because we have a silent epidemic of low thyroid. A vast number of cases of fatigue, joint and muscle pain, headaches, depression, infections, metabolic syndrome and more have low thyroid and iodine deficiency at their root. Hormone imbalances, chiefly low levels of usable thyroid, are responsible for many of our aches and pains.
Having dealt with his own hypothyroid issues and having to dig for answers, Dr. Starr makes an excellent advocate for those seeking competent medical treatment for chronic diseases, thyroid hormone, and balancing of bio-identical hormones.
Dr. Starr’s mastery of pain and non-invasive healing techniques led him to develop a dedicated following among those with sports injuries.
Dr. Starr believes that medicine should not be based primarily on chemistry. Every organ, every cell, every toxin vibrates at its own frequency. The body is an energetic being. Recognizing that, we can get to the root of many problems and restore health.
-Dr. Starr has recently released his third book, SOLVED, The Riddle of Alzheimer’s.
-Recap of Broda Barnes’ thyroid research. Relationship of thyroid, heart disease, weight loss, diabetes.
-Health care costs more than 4 times military spending: 18% of GNP.
-Hypothyroidism causes accelerated atherosclerosis and decreased immunity which starts with inflammation.
-Thyroid blood tests don’t work. Pituitary has its own deiodinases which are more effective than those in the rest of the body.
-Dr. Starr tells us he hasn’t had any Alzheimer’s patients for over 15 years. Broda Barnes didn’t have any for 20 years. Bioidentical hormones are effective at preventing Alzheimer’s.
-Why is his book blocked from getting media exposure?
-What determines if someone needs thyroid? Basal temperature should be > 97.8.
-Thyroid is 90% of energy production in the body.
-Starr’s homeopathic license enables him to offer treatments restricted by state medical board.
-If basal temperature is <97.8, 8 or 9 chance out of 10 it’s hypothyroid.
-Reversing thyroid symptoms by detoxing and clearing out endocrine disruptors.
-Why so much thyroid disease? Same patients are going to the hospitals now that were going to sanitariums earlier. TB, arthritis, infections – thyroid related.
-Iodine and thyroid. Halides – fluoride, chlorine, bromine – attach to thyroid hormone in place of iodine and make fake thyroids. Iodine crucial. Use iodine to reduce scars. Good bug killer. 5% Lugol’s iodine – now prescription strength.
-Does Dr. Starr ever prescribe T3 only to patients?
-More than half of his new patients allergic to their own hormones. Mold and mycotoxins – causes masking and spreading. Depletes immune system. Dr. Rea’s Environmental Health Center – uses homeopathy to test for mold. Can get rid of mold but still be allergic to own thyroid.
