A bone is a rigid organ that costutes part of the vertebral skeleton. Bones are a living tissue they have their own blood vessels and are made of living cells which help them grow and to repair themselves. Proteins, minerals and vitamins make up the bones.
Health challenges of the bones includes:
OSTEOPOROSIS which is a condition in which bones become less dense and more likely to fracture, it can result in loss of height, severe back pain and change in ones posture, it can impair a person’s ability to walk and can cause prolonged or permanent disability.
ARTHRITIS is a general term for conditions that affect the joints and surrounding tissues, we have 2 types of arthritis namely:
Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis.
OSTEOARTHRITIS is a very painful degenerative joint disease that often involves the hips, knees, neck, lower back or small joints of the hands, the catilege that cushions the ends of the bones in the joints wears out causing the bones to rub together, joint flexibility is reduced and the joint swells.
RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that involves joints of the fingers, thumbs, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees, feet and ankels.
An autoimmune disease is one in which the body releases enzymes that attack its own healthy tissues. GOUT, is a disease characterised by an abnormal metabolism of uric acid crystals, people with gout produce too much URIC ACID or their kidneys are inadequate in removing it.

10 Ways To Succeed At Alkaline Juice Fasting Even If its your First Time.​

  • Its important to first highlight the fact that Alkaline Juice fasting is quite different from the other types of juice fasting usually undertaken. This is specifically due to the emphasis on natural, seeded fruits and vegetables grown organically and that have a desirable origin (i.e. they should not be genetically modified at any point in time).
  • That being said the alkaline Juice fast is the ultimate way to get at your health goals and also ideal as an alternative therapy.

  • That being said during the duration of the fast one must also be cognizant that the body will go through some stress as we change our usual style of eating. This results in what experts call Detox symptoms .The most common detox symptoms include:
  1. Detox headache
  2. Lethargy(Feeling weak)
  3. Hunger Pangs
  4. Dehydration
  • When you’re participating in a detox activity, it’s common to experience the above. Detox headaches are often caused by your body’s reaction to missing a chemical, such as sugar or caffeine, that was habitually present. This may result in: A reduction in circulating hormones. In addition to this toxins such as chemical food additives or drugs do also  leach into your circulation to be eliminated. Lastly a release of energy from tension and stress also contributes to these symptoms .
  • To ensure that you are able to mitigate them and prevent them while doing an alkaline juice fast ensure you implement the following:
    1. Drink Plenty of Spring Water
    2. Ensure each smoothie has seamoss powder

    Overview of Sprouting;

    • Sprouting is the process by which a seed germinates and puts out shoots. It’s proven that soaking and growing fresh shoots boosts the nutritional qualities of such sprouts by 300 to 1200 percent, and they contain easily digestible omegas content as well. They’re easy to grow at home and can provide a great source of fresh live foods even for those who don’t have space for a vegetable garden.

    • Sprouts have a high content of available enzymes which makes them easily digestible, except perhaps for some of the legumes can be difficult to digest without steaming. Some people do not eat young alfalfa shoots because they think they contain carayanine, a substance suspected of causing ill effects by those that consume it.

    • They have 10 to 30 times the nutrients than the vegetables they grow into which is why they are considered a true natural super food. The amazing thing is that sunflower sprouts is said to have 30 times the nutrient value and life force of any other sprout. Now we’re at a whole other level of super foods. The Upendo Raw Vegan diet Program is based largely on consuming fresh raw foods like shoots.

    • I have been experimenting with sprouting grains. It’s a better option to consume Alkaline grains and seeds.

    • The desirable nutritional changes that occur during sprouting are mainly due to the breakdown of complex compounds into a more simple form, transformation into essential constituents and breakdown of nutritionally undesirable constituents.

    • Sprouts are also considered pre-digested food by some.

    • The seed is getting ready to grow and all the energy is unlocked at this stage.

    • The metabolic activity of resting seeds increases as soon as they are hydrated during soaking.

    • Complex biochemical changes occur during hydration and subsequent sprouting. Complex constituents and minerals are broken down and made easier to assimilate with the body. Sprouting increases the energy levels to 20 folds that of a dry seed.

    • Many studies have shown an increase in the content of the amino acid Lysine with sprouting. This is one of the Aminos ultimately responsible in protein production in the body.

    • Most Raw food diets consists of sprouts. This is a very healthy way to consume grains.

    • People with diabetes may find that eating sprouts helps them control their blood sugar levels more effectively. Studies suggest that sprouts can lower blood glucose levels.

    Understanding The Colon

    “The colon must be cleansed by detoxifying before any disease can be reversed” – Dr. Sebi

    The Colon is the sewer system of the body where most of the toxic wastes go for elimination. It is a tube approximately 6 feet in length and about 2-3 inches wide. Its walls can stretch up to 5 times its original size with impacted fecal matter, which happens to people with extended midsections. It can also hold more than 30 gallons of fluid.

    The colon is where your body absorbs water, synthesizes some minerals, and provides the body’s first line of defense by billions of ‘beneficial” bacteria commonly known as “healthy flora” or probiotics. These organisms help maintain a healthful intestinal environment and are critical to digestive and elimination processes.

    Within the colon, poisons are created every day by the effects of improper elimination (fermentation & putrification). Once efficient bowel elimination (2 to 3 times a day is normal) is impaired, toxins will accumulate and be absorbed into the bloodstream. Once this is happens, these physiological toxins can circulation throughout the body and hinder cellular, organ and system function, accumulating in tissue over time, eventually manifesting in disease of some form or another.

    Toxins being leached into the blood stream create a stress load for the liver, kidneys, lungs, lymphatic system and skin. Building or restoring health in any form must begin with cleansing and restoring efficient bowel function.

    Heal gastrointestinal issues, heal your mind, gain more clarity and energy by healing your gut.

    Understanding Tonsils

    Tonsils and the Role they play in the body;

    • The tonsils prevent foreign objects from slipping into the lungs. Think of them as goalies for the throat. They also filter bacteria and viruses. On top of all that, they produce white blood cells and antibodies
    • According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology, these bumps on the back of the throat are the “first line of defense as part of the immune system.” For example, tonsils sample bacteria and viruses entering the body through the mouth or nose and flush them using lymph.
    • Lymph is a clear and colorless fluid; the name comes from the Latin word lympha, which means “connected to water,” according to the National Lymphadema. It’s necessary for the lymphatic system to be open and functioning properly to remove this bacterias and viruses that do not belong in the body.
    • Inflammation of the tonsils is common among children. This is due to the introduction stage of different microbes in the environment. If the child lymphatic system is not functioning properly, a back up of this microbes causes the tonsils to swell up. Gargling with salt can reduce the inflammation.
    • Making sure the lymphatic system is functioning properly is essential. Fruits and especially watery fruits are great for the lymphatic system.
    • Children inherits there lymphatic systems from there mother. Most children has lymphatic issues. It shows up as infections of different places like eyes, ears and rashes on the skin.
    • Another sign that the baby is not receiving a good diet is excessive mucus and especially in the chest.
    • Dairy products and animal products combined with complex starches clogs up the lymphatic system. Seamoss is a great cleanse of the lymphatic system.

    Understanding Acid Reflux

    Understanding Acid Reflux;

    • Acid reflux is a digestive disorder in which stomach acid or bile irritates the food pipe lining. This is a chronic disorder which occurs when stomach acid or bile flows into the food pipe and irritates the lining. Acid reflux and heartburn more than twice a week may indicate GERD.
    • Acid reflux is an uncomfortable, sometimes painful condition that affects the digestive system. A ring of muscle, the lower esophageal sphincter, opens and closes as food moves through into the stomach. When this opening does not seal entirely or opens too often, acid from the stomach can bubble up into the esophagus. Eating late, over-eating, pregnancy, and living an unhealthy lifestyle can cause acid reflux, which results in symptoms of varying severity. If acid reflux occurs more than two times per week, it may be a sign of a chronic form of acid reflux called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
      1. Heartburn;
    Heartburn, a burning sensation or pain in the chest, is one of the first noticeable signs of acid reflux. While heartburn is not always a sign of acid reflux, if other symptoms are also evident, reflux could be the cause. Sometimes pain in the chest is an indicator that stomach acid is entering the esophagus, though it can also indicate heart problems, and in some cases, acid reflux or heartburn and heart issues are mistaken for one another. Prolonged chest pain should always prompt a person to seek medical evaluation.
    • Bloating;
      Acid reflux can also cause bloating, caused by excess gas or acid in the stomach. Many conditions can cause bloating, and anyone who experiences this symptom frequently or recurrently should see a medical professional if minor lifestyle changes do not have a positive effect.
    • Burping;
      Burping has many causes, including swallowing air while eating or drinking carbonated beverages that create excess gas. However, burping frequently may also be a warning sign of acid reflux. Acid in the stomach increases the tendency to swallow air. When air builds up, the body attempts to release the excess pressure through burping.
    • Dark Bowel Movements;
      Bleeding in the intestines, stomach, or esophagus can cause black or very dark stool. Bleeding from the esophagus usually occurs when the esophagus is severely inflamed and always needs immediate medical attention. Internal bleeding can be life-threatening. Like many symptoms of acid reflux, there are many causes of bloody bowel movements, and this is another symptom that should be evaluated by a medical professional.
    • Nausea;
      Nausea is yet another symptom attributable to many conditions. When considered alone, without other symptoms, it can be difficult to determine the cause of nausea. It is a common symptom of acid reflux, and may be identified as such by when it occurs. This type of nausea typically manifests right after a meal, especially large meals. While a doctor can prescribe medications, over-the-counter drugs can also help relieve this symptom in minor cases.
    • Weight Loss;
      Weight loss can also be a symptom of acid reflux and other conditions that affect digestion. Acid reflux causes a variety of digestive problems, including severe cramping and pain. Many people with acid reflux find it difficult to eat, especially large or even adequate meals. Some individuals also avoid eating for fear of subsequent discomfort. They may develop a habit of skipping meals or reducing portions. Extreme, rapid weight loss is unhealthy.

Next eat strictly from the nutritional guide, no junk food, no sugary drinks, and incorporate herbs.

    Thyroid Gland

    Overview Of The Thyroid Gland;

    • The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that sits low on the front of the neck. Your thyroid lies below your Adam’s apple, along the front of the windpipe. The thyroid has two side lobes, connected by a bridge (isthmus) in the middle.
    • The thyroid gland is a vital hormone gland: It plays a major role in the metabolism, growth and development of the human body.
    • It helps to regulate many body functions by constantly releasing a steady amount of thyroid hormones into the bloodstream.
    • If the body needs more energy in certain situations – for instance, if it is growing or cold, or during pregnancy – the thyroid gland produces more hormones.
    • The thyroid gland produces three hormones: 1. Triiodothyronine, also known as T3 2. Tetraiodothyronine, also called thyroxine or T4 3. Calcitonin.
    • Iodine is one of the main building blocks of both hormones. Our bodies can’t produce this trace element, so we need to get enough of it in our diet. Iodine is absorbed into our bloodstream from food in our bowel. It is then carried to the thyroid gland, where it is eventually used to make thyroid hormones.
    • Sometimes our bodies need more thyroid hormones, and sometimes they need less. To make the exact right amount of hormones, the thyroid gland needs the help of another gland: the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland “tells” the thyroid gland whether to release more or less hormones into the bloodstream. Also, a certain amount of thyroid hormones are attached to transport proteins in the blood. If the body needs more hormones, T3 and T4 can be released from the proteins in the blood and do their job.
    • The third hormone produced by the thyroid gland is called calcitonin. Calcitonin is made by C-cells. It is involved in calcium and bone metabolism. An overactive thyroid (also known as hyperthyroidism) occurs if the thyroid gland makes too many hormones. An underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) is where the gland doesn’t make enough hormones. Both of these imbalances can lead to a great number of symptoms. Hyperthyroidism symptoms:
    1. Nervousness, tremor, agitation
    2. Irritability
    3. Poor concentration
    4. Reduced menstrual blood flow in women
    5. Racing heartbeat or palpitations
    6. Heat intolerance
    7. Changes in bowel habits, such as more frequent bowel movements
    8. Enlargement of the thyroid gland
    9. Skin thinning
    10. Brittle hair
    11. Increase in appetite, feeling hungry, sweating.
    Hypothyroidism symptoms;
    1. Mental fogginess or sluggishness
    2. Depressed mood
    3. Excessive or prolonged menstrual bleeding
    4. Fluid retention, feeling bloated, puffiness in the face
    5. Joint aches and pains
    6. Weight gain/hard to loose weight
    7. High cholesterol levels
    8. Feeling cold, or increased sensitivity to cold temperatures
    9. Hoarseness
    10. Dry skin
    11. Constipation
    12. Fatigue
    13. Memory problems
    14. Thinning hair or hair loss
