Fruit removes mucus out of the body.

Fruit removes mucus out of the body. 1080 1080 Abbe Lang

Only foods that are foreign to the human body would cause mucus, and mucus is created from the mucosa to protect tissue and cells due to the acid-ash produced from the starch, proteins, dead animal tissue, and their mucus and pus-filled fluids.

Fruit removes mucus because the fruit is alkaline, astringent, and designed for the human vessel, which means when you start eating foods designed for you, the body wants to dump and get rid of waste.

Mucus in the body blocks the flow and pathways of eliminating metabolic waste.

Mucus locks in metals chemicals and creates a feeding environment for yeast, fungus, and parasites. Mucus cuts off circulation and impairs brain function.

Mucus and acids are the root cause of lymph stagnation, endocrine gland dysfunction, and damages are the elimination organs such as the kidneys, skin, and bowels. You don’t want excess mucus in the body, and a diet of fruit will be effective with pulling it out.

Fruits that do well with pulling out mucus are citrus, grapes, watermelon, and mangoes. Mucus will come out of the nose, ears, mouth, eyes, anus, vaginally, and by urine.

Vegetable matter is not astringent and energetic enough to pull out mucus like the fruits. Still, a strong Chlorophyll-rich green drink does have mucus-pulling abilities, and parasites, worms, fungus, and yeast don’t thrive in an alkaline body and hate the oxygen produced from a green drink.

Salads can act as a broom to loosen up impacted mucus and biofilm on the outer layer of the colon, but the mucus and interstitial waste worked out of the lymphatic system will be pulled out by the fruit and veggies, leafy greens, and green drinks are not going to be strong enough to loosen up any sticky sulfur that may be stagnant in the body from the antibiotic drugs and other foods or products that are heavy in sulfates that have entered the body.

Only you, my friend, can learn for yourself the power of an all-fruit diet when it comes to detoxification and pulling out debris and metabolic waste out of the body. Mucus will come out when you consume energetic electrical foods, and fruit being the highest form of energy and astringency makes it the best source of food to allow the body to drain and pull it out.

Fruits are the cleaners, and they can rebuild you after the body corrects itself from the damage that has been caused by consuming foods that damage it. Acid-forming foods are grains, beans, eggs, all meats, milk, and The starchy potato varieties.

How To Boost Your Happiness Hormones to Live Longer

How To Boost Your Happiness Hormones to Live Longer

How To Boost Your Happiness Hormones to Live Longer 1080 1080 Abbe Lang

The happiness hormones serotonin and oxytocin don’t only help fight depression. They also cut heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer’s risk by strengthening arteries, so nutrient-rich blood quickly reaches your organs.

Send some love.

Taking one minute to let someone know that you’re thinking about them can bring about an increase in your oxytocin production 

Take a scented soak.

Relaxing in a warm bath scented with rose, vanilla, jasmine, or lavender can keep your blood levels of serotonin and oxytocin elevated by soothing your brain’s anxiety center. And when your brain is relaxed, it needs less serotonin and oxytocin to function, so more of those hormones are available to cells in the rest of your body.

Take 5-HTP.

Taking 100 mg. of 5-HTP increased serotonin levels, improving mood, energy, immunity-and even fat-burning. Want to sleep more deeply? Taking 5-HTP 30 minutes before bedtime can help. Cutting calories a priority? Take 5-HTP 30 minutes before your biggest meal each day.

Consume protein at breakfast.

After a night of not eating, blood levels of amino acids- the building blocks of serotonin and oxytocin- are low. The fix: Eat a meal containing 2 oz. of amino acid-rich protein, such as eggs, meat, or cheese. It’ll rev the enzymes that keep serotonin and oxytocin levels up, cutting your risk of the blues and blood sugar woes 33%.

Eat berries and kale.

Eating two cups each of berries and leafy greens (like kale) weekly could up your serotonin levels. Both foods are rich in anthocyanins, nutrients that encourage your brain to produce and release this “happy” hormone.

Watch TV.

Getting caught up in a fun, romantic, or emotionally gripping program-enough to make you root for one of the characters- will send your oxytocin levels soaring. Your brain processes movies as if they’re happening, and the empathy you feel for a character stimulates oxytocin release.

How To Finally Be Pain Free the Natural Way!

How To Finally Be Pain Free the Natural Way!

How To Finally Be Pain Free the Natural Way! 1920 1080 Abbe Lang
Do you have chronic pain? These easy natural remedies are proof that you don’t have to put up with troublesome pains and other irritants anymore.

Practice slow exercise.

Tai chi, yoga, qigong, or doing any form of gentle, low-impact exercise for 25 minutes daily could reduce your aches and pains better than even prescription pain medications can provide. Relaxing motion decreases your production of cortisol, a pain-producing stress hormone that also delays the healing of damaged tissues.

Try Massage

Massaging sore spots with a lotion, including Celadrin, can reduce pain and swelling. This lotion is so safe you can use it as frequently as you need! Apply your Celadrin lotion after a warm bath. Hot water boosts the flow of its healing nutrients to damaged muscles and ligaments.

Try OMT.

Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) uses rhythmic stretching and gentle pressure to speed healing and make joints less tender. As little as 15 minutes of OMT weekly can decrease stiffness and pain, even for people whose pain is so critical that they’ve been thinking about surgery.

Get your fish oil.

Including 12 oz. of fish or seafood in your weekly diet could cut stiffness and achiness. Fish is rich in healthy fats that reduce fluid buildup and help repair hurt muscles, nerves, and tendons. Even easier: Take a daily 2,000-mg. dose of fish oil that contains DHA and EPA.

Eat a rainbow salad.

There’s no need to eat even more fruits and vegetables to feel great. Just focus on eating a mixture of products with eye-catching colors. For example, try eating top lettuce with red onion, orange carrots, yellow mango, and purple cabbage. Eating colorful produce, rather than greens alone, triples your intake of carotenoids, plant pigments that soothe pain nerves, tame inflammation, and regenerate damaged tissues. This step is so effective that eating only two “rainbow” salads or other colorful dishes daily could reduce the ouch and ache in four weeks.
Is Your Lymphatic System Blocked?

Is Your Lymphatic System Blocked?

Is Your Lymphatic System Blocked? 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

Digestive issues and chronic illnesses can affect your health in more ways than one. These issues are often caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system that regulates and moves toxins away from our vital organs. If it is blocked, it can lead to all sorts of health problems. 

Here are 5 signs that your lymphatic system may be blocked:

No energy – when your lymphatic system is out of balance, it can drain your energy and lead to chronic fatigue.

Bloated – the lymphatic system moves toxins through lymph fluid, and if it gets backed up without releasing, it can lead to consistent bloat, especially in the lower abdominal area.

Brain Fog or Frequent headaches– healthy brain function relies on eliminating toxins and healthy blood cells. If the body can’t eliminate those toxins, it can affect the brain through memory loss, lack of focus and concentration, and headaches. 

Swollen Lymph Glands – if you notice any swollen lymph glands, it is best to get them checked out to determine if you need to detox your lymphatic system.  

Can’t Lose Weight – toxins get stored in fat cells, making it difficult to lose weight. Unexplained weight gain can be a cause of lymphatic blockage. 

What Can You Do to Cleanse Your System? 

Move your body – to cleanse your lymphatic system, I recommend engaging in some sort of exercise such as walking, jogging, yoga, or Pilates.

Drink plenty of water – water helps flush out toxins from the body and prevent dehydration.

Eat foods for lymph cleansing – including avocadoes, almonds, ground flaxseed or chia seeds, garlic, Brazil nuts, and dark leafy greens. 

Practice deep abdominal breathing – one method is to take a deep breath in for a count of 4, filling up the belly – hold it for a count of 4 – and exhale for a count of 4 as you pull the navel in toward the spine. 

Wear Loose-Fitting clothes – tight clothes prevent the body from functioning at its top condition. Wear clothes that allow you to breathe.

Get a Lymphatic Massage – it works in harmony with your own body’s lymph system to encourage lymphatic draining, offering relief.

Toxic Relationships Affect your Health

Toxic Relationships Affect your Health

Toxic Relationships Affect your Health 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

We have all been around someone who might be in a bad mood, is having a hard time, or perhaps is a ‘negative nelly.’ However, for some people, this becomes more prevalent, insidious, and all-encompassing. We all have our good and bad days, but you really need to ask yourself if your relationship is toxic. Why? Because it can affect your health. Ask yourself:

  • Does this person make you feel bad about yourself?
  • Do you feel physically or emotionally drained?
  • Are you always giving without receiving anything back?
  • Does this person isolate you from family and friends?
  • Do you ever feel unsafe? Fearful?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions and have negative feelings about or around your significant other, spouse, or friend a majority of the time, then you may be in a toxic relationship. Is it time to ‘detox’ this person from your life? If this relationship is not serving you mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and physically, then it can be very difficult to stay healthy and thrive in your life. 

A toxic relationship can affect your health, but there are 3 things you can do about it right now:

  1. Recognize the relationship for what it is and be at peace because it is not up to you to change the other person.
  2. Create personal boundaries for yourself 
  3. If you find the relationship intolerable or feel miserable all the time, it may be time to leave. Otherwise, the circle of stress will continue to harm your health.

Deciding on the best course of action may take time, and you can help yourself make that decision by practicing meditation. As you become more ‘present’ and less stressed about possible future events, you can anchor yourself in the present and foster a positive change. 

Another great way to help release negative energy and clarify your mind and body from the inside is through regular yoga practice.  

Talk about it with someone who can give you an objective point of view, share your perspective, and help you gain more clarity. The toxic person may be willing to engage in counseling with you. Set boundaries, cultivate an inner circle of people who love and support you, and trust your intuition.

Why Magnesium Is Important to Your Health

Why Magnesium Is Important to Your Health 150 150 Abbe Lang

why magnesium is important for your health

Magnesium is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the human body. It plays many essential roles in the health of your body and brain. 

Magnesium regulates temperature, produces and transports energy, sends nerve signals, and relaxes muscles. Magnesium is necessary for glucose, fat, and protein metabolism and influences every cell in the body in a positive life-supporting way.

In this article, I will share the function and benefits of magnesium, what it does in the body and dietary sources.

Different Forms of Magnesium

Magnesium Malate

Magnesium malate is a dietary supplement that combines magnesium and malic acid. It’s connected to numerous health benefits, including improvements in mood, blood sugar control, exercise performance, and chronic pain.

Magnesium Glycinate

 Magnesium glycinate has many benefits:

  • It has a calming effect on your brain.
  • It can help reduce anxiety and support better sleep.
  • It helps keep bones strong by keeping healthy bone density.
  • It helps control blood sugar in diabetics and can lower the risk of developing diabetes.
  • It decreases irregular heart rhythms.
  • It reduces (PMS) symptoms.

Topical Magnesium

Topical magnesium is a way of delivering minerals to the body through your skin. 

Magnesium chloride is easy to absorb and may raise levels of this nutrient within the body when applied topically to the skin. There aren’t any side effects of using magnesium oils or creams other than potentially some stinging on the skin. 

Magnesium Threonate

Magnesium L-threonate is a supplement that has the L-threonate form of magnesium that can normalize magnesium levels in the body.

Magnesium L-threonate Effectively Fights ADHD is a wonderful memory and cognitive-enhancing supplement and even helps fight depression and anxiety. 

Research shows that Magnesium L-threonate is safe and well-tolerated by the body when taken in dosage amounts less than 350 mg a day. However, increased Magnesium L-threonate intake can lead to side-effects, such as nausea, vomiting, etc.

Remag Liquid Magnesium 

ReMag is “The Magnesium Miracle.” ReMag is a stabilized ionic form of magnesium that is entirely absorbed at the cellular level and does not have a laxative effect. ReMag has the highest known concentration of any magnesium. It’s much more therapeutic, effective, and fast-acting than magnesium in pill or liquid form.

ReMag was created by Dr. Carolyn Dean, author of “The Magnesium Miracle“. ReMag minerals are acquired from a pure source of magnesium chloride and deliver stabilized magnesium ions that are similar in size to plant magnesium.

ReMag is a picometer-ionic form of magnesium. Picometer magnesium is smaller in diameter than the body’s cell mineral ion channels. Its direct and complete absorption into cells means ReMag bypasses a leaky gut and does not even reach the large intestine to cause diarrhea. 

ReMag promotes brain health, strong muscles and bones, cardiovascular health, and nervous system function ReMag is generally recognized as safe and is free of heavy metals verified in rigorous testing performed at 3rd party FDA accredited labs.

The RDA for magnesium is expressed in mg/kg and is roughly 6 mg per kg (2.2 lb) of body weight. To easily calculate your magnesium, take your weight (in pounds) times 4. This is your RDA minimum.

Benefits of Magnesium

why magnesium is important for your health

Magnesium has tons of health benefits. According to the National Institutes of Health, magnesium can help the following conditions:

Relieves Insomnia

  • Magnesium relaxes your muscles for better sleep. 
  • It helps to “shut your mind off” and calms your nerves by regulating two of your brain’s neurotransmitters that tend to keep you awake. 
  • Magnesium is also necessary to keep a healthy “biological clock” and sleep cycle. 
  • Magnesium may also prevent restless leg syndrome. It does this not only by relaxing muscles but by reducing inflammation and helping to make sleep-enhancing chemicals called melatonin and glutathione.

Protects Your Heart

  • Magnesium fuels your heart, protects the heart’s pump, prevents heart attacks, and gives elasticity to your heart and blood vessels.
  • Magnesium decreases calcium build up in your heart and arteries.

Combats Asthma

  • Magnesium has the potential to stop the spasms of your bronchial muscle that creates narrowing in the tubes transporting air to the lungs and help your lungs breathe easier. 
  • Magnesium supplements also help control non-extreme cases daily in both children and adults. 
  • Magnesium relaxes the bronchial muscles even when you are not having an attack. 
  • Studies show magnesium does this either because it blocks calcium (which can reduce dilation) or its vital connection to the enzyme responsible for cell function called adenylyl cyclase.

Reduces High Blood Pressure

  • Magnesium relaxes “smooth muscle” cells, meaning those in your veins and arteries, so they don’t constrict the flow of blood. 
  • It also regulates other minerals vital to blood pressure.
  • It maintains the delicate balance between sodium and potassium. 
  • It helps the body absorb calcium (and not be deposited in arteries).

Improves Digestion and Alleviates Constipation Symptoms

  • Without magnesium, your body can’t perform the “mechanics” of digestion, make hydrochloric acid (stomach acid), make digesting enzymes for carbs, proteins, and fats, and repair and protect your digestive organs (esophagus, stomach, intestines, pancreas, colon).
  • Magnesium helps make enzymes in your saliva that break food down into smaller parts, helping the entire digestive process. 
  • The hormones that tell your stomach to produce digestive acid need magnesium to be made; you can’t digest food without it. 
  • The pancreas must have magnesium to make these vital enzymes. 
  • Magnesium also keeps the pancreas healthy, helping to prevent pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer.
  • Magnesium aids stomach acid production and reduces bad bacteria in the gut.

Protects Against Diabetes

  • Magnesium is the key to insulin sensitivity. 
  • Research from 2014 says magnesium deficiency is associated with triggering “acute phase response” that contributes to type 2 diabetes. Supplements were given to healthy people with prediabetes who had low magnesium. Taking magnesium supplements decreased their C-reactive protein. C-reactive protein is high in those who develop diabetes.
  • Magnesium deficiency has also been linked to poor glycemic control, diabetic retinopathy (damage to eyes leading to blindness), nephropathy (damage to kidneys leading to renal failure), neuropathy (nerve damage), and foot ulcerations. Therefore, scientists highly recommend supplementing magnesium due to the increase in these conditions among people with type 2 diabetes.
  • Taking magnesium can improve metabolic control, increase good (HDL) cholesterol, and lower triglycerides that reduce heart trouble risks.

Supports Bone Health

  • Magnesium is known to reduce the rate that bones degrade or break down. 
  • Too little magnesium contributes to bone loss by:
    • Affecting “crystal formation” in bone cells.
    • Impacting the amount of parathyroid hormone produced. (The amount of calcium your body absorbs is controlled by parathyroid hormone.)
    • Creating inflammation in your bones.

Deficiency and Symptoms

Some researchers state that magnesium deficiency has reached epidemic proportions. Why has it? 

A major reason that our bodies are being “drained” of magnesium is stress. 

This stress can be created by intense exercise, processed food (and even the many foods fortified with calcium but not magnesium), prolonged exposure to light from a computer screen (which reduces your hypothalamus gland from releasing healing hormones), and emotional stress. 

Stress also damages and inflames your gut, which is where magnesium is absorbed into your body.

Magnesium deficiency symptoms are difficult to pinpoint because they can show up in any part of your body. 

Initial mild symptoms can range from trouble concentrating, dizziness, and excessive menstrual pain to fatigue, headaches, facial twitching, and heart palpitations. Common symptoms also include constipation, food cravings, loss of appetite, muscle cramps, irritability, and anxiety.

How to Effectively Increase Your Magnesium Levels

As with any deficiency, begin eating foods high in the nutrient daily. Challenge yourself to create a high-potency meal plan, including as many of these foods as possible.

Yet, most research agrees that if your body is already in a deficit state, achieving a therapeutic dose of any nutrient from meals alone is rarely possible. Supplementation is the only route to top up your shortfall.
