I have always enjoyed Einstein's quotes and sayings, to read some of them means to start meditating in some interesting truths.

Ulcerative Colitis is a Chronic inflammatory disease of the Colon wall. The causes of these disease are a collection of conditions, especially the chronic inflammation of the color due to poor diet and stress or bacteria (chronic infection) or parasites, constipation caused for poor diet habits. A diet filled with processed foods and foods that make your pH acidic cause intestines inflammation, after a long time of exposing our colon to all kinds of toxins, the wall of the colon gets inflamed as a result you may have symptoms like colon pain, rectal bleeding, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, weight loss, weakness and fatigue. Also viruses, bacterias or parasites can take advantage of the acidic pH and weakened immune response so these also can be involved in the development of ulcers. However it can be the result of a autoimmune reaction or hereditary condition. The truth is that if you put your body under so much stress you make your body super acidic when you do this your body losses the strength to fight disease or germs, also the acidic pH in your body causes inflammation where even cancerous cells can reproduce.

Alpiste or also known as canary grass is an amazing aid when treating diabetes because is been discovered that alpiste milk enzymes will help lower the sugar blood levels in patients with Diabetes type II. Also helps your liver and pancreatic cells regenerate and be healthy. I always recommend to use Pureza Alpiste because is the only one safe for human consumption, the others must be totally strained and filter after mixed or blended and soak for two days before even blended. The seed has a shell with asbestos like fibers that should never be consumed by humans not even birds eat this shell, they crack it open and eat only the inside seed. To be safe use only Pureza Alpiste Pure and safe because is Silica Fiber Free. You still need to soak and blend and I like to use a strainer but the time of preparation shortens immensely. Many people drinks this enzymatic milk to loose weight because is nutritious and makes your body feel satisfy and free of cravings. Here is a video of how some people do this but again this time can be shortened and also be safer for you if you use the only alpiste for human consumption and Silica Fiber Free Alpiste Pureza Alpiste. There is a link to Pureza Alpiste at the top right corner of this blog so you can start enjoying the benefits of this amazing super food. Alpiste Milk preparation example video from the web.

Do you suffer from Osteoporosis? Did you know that it can be related to lack of exposure to sunlight and low vitamin D levels? Our body needs the right ingredients to keep homeostasis in our body, means the balance to maintain life working properly. Lacking of the proper form of vitamin D affects the amount of calcium in our blood, muscles and bones. You may ingest calcium and vitamin D, but there is a process inside of body that needs to take place for this vitamin D to go into our blood stream and take calcium into the bones and muscles. When you don’t have enough calcium in bones or muscles, these weaken experiencing fractures and also muscle pain. We need to understand the physiology of vitamin D so we can learn how important it is the exposure to sunlight. To make it simple, when we eat our foods that contain Vitamin D we are taking Ergocalciferol Vitamin D2, for this Vitamin to be useful for your body, the Vitamin D goes into the skin (vitamin Choloecalciferol D3 provitamin). Then, if you expose your skin to Ultraviolet Light from the sun, this one turns into Pre vitamin D3, which turns (isomerizes) into Vitamin D3 and enters (translocates) to the blood stream or circulation. Then our liver converts this vitamins D2 and D3 into a different form of Vitamin D in a storage form, to be used as needed. There is much more to this physiological process and you can find more info but I found here a link to a nice drawing and labels that may help you to understand. Click here to see a figure of this physiological process. As you can see there are many things that our body does by itself better known as the Autonomous System but diet and solar exposure are needed to maintain healthy bones. Our organs and glands will work according to what they sense in our body, if we are not giving our bodies the right nutrients and environment, then our body will start hurting in many ways. So get some sun and eat healthy, prevention is important to have a health in the years to come!
