BREAST AND OVARIAN CANCER LINKED TO POOR SLEEP:
A new study published online on the April 3, 2013, in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that:
So what were these cancer preventive guidelines?
The six guidelines included:
So what do all of these cancer preventive guidelines have in common?
All of these guidelines help to reduce inflammation in the body. It is known that excessive inflammation can stimulate metabolic pathways that can lead to cancer. How and Why??
Studies shows that inflammation:
There are many types of natural anti inflammatory agents out there in the market: curcumin, boswellia, ginger, capsaicin.
But one natural anti inflammatory agent that you may have not heard about is serrapeptase.
What conditions can serrapeptase treat?
Also, serrapeptase has been found to be helpful in improving COPD conditions:
HDL is the good cholesterol. It helps to “scoop” up excess cholesterol in the arteries and brings it back to the liver where it is then excreted via the bowels. Thus high HDL is heart protective.
If you are struggling to raise your good cholesterol, the following tips may help you.
1. Increase Vitamin D3 levels: Consult with your natural medicine oriented doctor to determine the dosage of Vitamin D3 needed.
2. Drink some alcohol:
3. Reduce your consumption of trans fats. Trans fats are formed whenever oil is heated to high temperatures as is the case when food is deep fried.
4. Increase your consumption of monounsaturated fats:
5. Take Krill Oil: Consult with your natural medicine oriented doctor to determine the right dosage for you.
There are many benefits of high intensity interval training (HIIT)
1. HIIT has been studied in overweight women and has been found to be beneficial to improving blood sugar control and making insulin more sensitive.

“The science behind burst training is based on something called the ‘excess post-exercise oxygen consumption’ (EPOC) effect, which is the recovery of one’s metabolic rate back to pre-exercise levels,” says Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Jini Cicero. “It is a measure of how much oxygen the body utilizes in the period immediately following a workout or bout of exercise. EPOC directly effects fat oxidation in response to high-intensity exercise.”
In other words, when you burst, your body creates an oxygen debt that it must then repay. This recovery requires energy, which your body utilizes via fat oxidation. Literally, you’re burning fat to meet this demand.
Burst training also increases lactic acid which in turn increases growth hormone. When growth hormone is elevated, fat burning and muscle development is enhanced. Also growth hormone helps to control cortisol levels. When we exercise, cortisol levels rise. In aerobic exercise, cortisol degrades muscle which contributes to slow metabolism and inability to lose weight. In anaerobic exercise such as burst training, growth hormone helps to curb elevated cortisol preventing muscle loss
So how do you do burst training? Burst training can be done in many ways:
When it comes to weight loss, many people are misled to believe that they need to perform aerobic exercise 5 days a week for 30 minutes each day. While this may help some people lose weight initially, it leaves many struggling to lose weight in the long term.
A newer approach to weight loss is called burst training. Also known as high intensity interval training, burst training involves performing intense exercise for shorter duration of time. Instead of doing continuous aerobic exercise (with oxygen) for 30 minutes, burst training is purely anaerobic (without oxygen) and is performed for 30- 60 seconds and repeated 2-8 times with periodic 1 minute rest intervals. To do a burst training, you perform an intense exercise such as sprinting as hard as you can for 30 seconds and then rest for 1 minute. You then repeat this 3 times. A typically burst training session such as this can last 6 minutes.
