Money Drives It

I’ve been trying to compose my thoughts on this subject for some time but wasn’t sure how to put my feelings into words. Let me begin by saying that the trends in healthcare today have become quite disturbing to me. The reason I feel this way is because I don’t believe there is very much incentive to find the cure for many of the diseases we as Americans suffer from. Most of these “lifestyle” diseases i.e., Obesity, Type II diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, cancer and stroke, are caused by how we live our lives and namely what we’re exposing our bodies to, both inside and out. While it is our ultimate responsibility to know what is good for us we are being barraged with misinformation about what and how we should eat, drink, act, look, etc. Healthcare prices keep on rising due to various reasons related to research and development of new technology and new drugs to treat all of these diseases, and the spread of these diseases to younger people in our country. Huge money is being made by all of these drug companies who develop these drugs. These drug companies are also responsible for testing...

Indian Coconut Chicken Curry with Spinach and Quinoa

Taken directly from Clean Eating Magazine, the June 2017 issue. This is one of those dishes you can just throw together in 30 min or less, which is great if you come home from work and need to get dinner for 4 on the table. It’s full of health benefits from the coconut oil, ginger and spices. Delicious and nutritious.

Spicy Kimchee Salsa

from Antonio Lumuaco Got chips? Take a dip, the salsa’s fine. It’s naturally tart, sweet and spicy—made with a very sharp, fine-aged Korean radish kimchee and mango or apple. This is the perfect way to use kimchee that’s been languishing in the back of your fridge. Kimchee Salsa is spicy enough to take the chill out a brisk winter afternoon.

7 Signs Your Gut Bacteria Are Out of Whack

The bacteria in your gut can be one of your strongest allies in getting healthy…or it can be one of your worst enemies. Most people don’t realize it, but what they eat and how they live are changing the makeup of their gut bacteria. Exciting new studies are coming out every day exploring the connection between gut bacteria and practically every other aspect of human health. The conclusion is clear: if you can change your gut, you can change your life. Gut bacteria, which number more than 100 trillion cells, have more of an impact on our health than medical experts previously realized. But not all gut bacteria are created equal. Among other things, “good” gut bacteria improve digestion, strengthen the immune system, and manufacture the vitamins your body needs. On the other hand, “bad” gut bacteria can cause digestion nightmares, mental problems, skin conditions, and all kinds of other problems you’ll learn about in just a second. A healthy gut isn’t made by trying to rid your body of gut bacteria altogether. It’s made by balancing the bacteria—limiting the bad guys and encouraging the good guys to grow. So let’s start at the beginning: how to figure out if...

Also by getting plenty of good, clean water along with adequate sleep and decreasing your stress level, you will be giving yourself the best chance to heal.

Pancreatic Cancer

An article from Cancer Treatment Centers of America Website: Receiving a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is considered a grave diagnosis. Many patients having Pancreatic cancer don’t present for diagnosis until in later stages of the disease, mainly because there are usually few symptoms affecting the patient. Development of Pancreatic Cancer Pancreatic cancer develops in the tissues of the pancreas, an organ located behind the lower portion of the stomach. The pancreas aids in digestion, metabolism and insulin production. Cancer may develop in either the exocrine glands or the endocrine glands of the pancreas. About 95 percent of pancreatic cancers begin in the exocrine glands (the cells that produce the enzymes or “digestive juices” that help break down proteins, fats and starches). Pancreatic cancer affects the body’s ability to digest and absorb vital nutrients from food. This may cause nausea, taste changes, weight loss, fatigue, decreased appetite, fullness, pain, gas, diarrhea and constipation. Over time, these symptoms may put patients at risk for malnutrition. Having good nutrition is so important during treatment for pancreatic cancer, no matter the stage of the diagnosis. Because part of the pancreas is removed during surgery, the part that remains after surgery may not be able to...

Liz Gober

CBTB Nutrition Advisor
Liz's Blog

Hi I’m Liz Gober, your wellness consultant/health coach for Cancer Below the Belt. Kelly asked me to become involved with Cancer Below the Belt because he understands how crucial good, sound nutrition is in preventing and/or healing from cancer. He was inspired by the transformation I made in my own life and health from studying nutrition, applying those principles and literally watching my body change for the better day by day. It was during that training that I also found out the sad truth about the foods we buy in supermarkets. Most of what comprises the aisles in the center of the grocery store are shelf stable, partially or fully prepared (food-like substances) that provide calories, but not very much nutrition for those consumed calories. Large agricultural farms are growing so much corn, wheat and soybeans that they need to find various ways to market them. Companies who process these crops then make products that contain all sorts of substances that enhance the different qualities of the food, such as taste, texture, mouth feel, crunch, etc.. They reshape it and repackage it and voila, it seems like a different food but it’s only been changed by the name and additives that are added. If a label contains more than 5 ingredients it’s overly processed. Be cautious about what you buy. You have the power, as a consumer to choose not to buy these unhealthy products, and if enough people exercise this power those products will eventually disappear.

Tip of the day? Stick to the aisles on the outside of the supermarket. It’s there you will find the fresh fruits and vegetables and foods that require refrigeration, (not additives), to keep them hydrated and fresh.

As your wellness consultant/health coach, I will be submitting a weekly recipe for your pleasure and most importantly for your health.
