    STRESS
    (lack of sleep or worrying about not being able to keep my job can cause stress- With no job I will be depressed even more, stressed and will get FATTER!
    Stress can cause elevations of Cortisol, which stimulates nervous eating. You are stressed, your body panics, fuels up on high-carbs. High-fat foods and stores fat deep in the belly to protect you. Stomach fat is stress fat. Chronic stress triggers major biochemical changes that practically give our bodies no choice but to gain weight. When Cortisol is consistently released into the blood stream the digestive system becomes weak and unable to alert the liver that the stomach is full. Cortisol causes a blood sugar flux that sparks carb cravings so intense that sticking to a diet is nearly impossible.Protein helps prevent high levels of the stress cortisol. (Stress slows down metabolism which causes weight gain.)

    A tongue that is red and bumpy it is a sign of cortisol overload.

    To ease stress, try this acupuncture trick: Hold out your right arm, wrist straight and fingers relaxed. Measure two fingerwidths down from your wrist; press that point for 10 seconds, then release for 10 seconds. Repeat nine times. Pressing this "heart protector" point sends a calming energy flow to the heart and triggers a 22 percent drop in cortisol almost instantly.


    FOODS THAT RELIEVE STRESS
    • http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=208284
    • Anti-stress formula vitamin will help you lose weight because stress slows your metabolism.
      Protein- beans, eggs, fish chicken
    • Get a good quality multiple vitamin and mineral compound containing 10,000 IUs of beta-carotene and approximately 50 mg of each of the B vitamins plus 1,000 mg of Vitamin C, 400 IUs of Vitamin E and 50 mcg of selenium.
    • stay away from caffeine http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=208285
    • Caffeine ages you, stresses your body can cause you to gain weight.

    ______________________________________________________________



    SWELLING- the throat, swelling of prostrate, swelling joints-gout from High Fructose Corn Sweeteners http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=208289

    AVOID these, which can cause joints to hurt and aches.
    • MSG (monosodium glutamate)
    • Splenda
    • Caffeine
    • Smog/Pollutants -there may be a connection to smog and/or inversion and allergies. Many hurt hurt more when they live in areas with more pollutants
    • High Fructose Corn Sweeteners can cause gout which is swelling of joints
      http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=208289


    FOR STIFFNESS TRY:

    • heat
    • drink plenty of water
    • one glass of 100% cranberry juice every day (no high fructose corn sweetners)
    • 200 mg each of Coenzyme Q10 and Ginkgo Biloba can reduce symptoms



    ANTIBIOTICS CAN CAUSE SWELLING AND CATTLE ARE FED ANTIBIOTICS! Read about antibiotics and steriods in milk that are passed on to your body when you drink milk, eat butter or eat beef that has been given antibiotics. It is the same thing for chicken-they feed them the growth hormone to get them to market quicker: http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=205162

    MSG (Monosodium Glutamate)
    ________________________________________________________________

    WEIGHT- Feel like no matter what you eat you cannot seem to lose any weight, even though you are working out?
    http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=197638

    Weight gain can be from:
    High Fructose corn sweetners used in so many things we eat,
    some of the medications to treat fibro , such as anxiety, or depression, and long term pain management

    AVOID (Aspartame/Equal/NutraSweet poisioning)

    Can't seem to lose weight?
    • Insomnia and stress can play a huge part in putting on weight or not being able to lose it.
    • MSG and the link to obesity link http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=208297
    • Obesity and the link to High Fructose Corn Sweeteners http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=208289
    • Interesting that when we take steroids it makes weight fast and slows metabolism, etc.
    • Anti-stress formula vitamin will help you lose weight because stress slows your metabolism but be careful (iodine is in vitamin pills, so try to get them naturally). http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=205162
    • Taking antibiotics can break down the immune system, causing the body to be unable to fight off viruses with your own anti-bodies making people extremely susceptible to colds, upper respiratory infections, sinus infections and sore throats. (If you do get an infection of some sort-consider acidophilus and bifidus found in a good yogurt.)


    One tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in an 8 oz. glass of water before your two biggest meals of the day, can help you lose weight as it helps suppress the appetite and boosts metabolism, plus it speeds digestion, so food is burned for energy, instead of being stored as fat.

    See the thread on weight http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh....php?p=1397383

    See edema for weight gain information.

    Symptoms of Fibromyalgia syndrome sound much like those who are diagnosed with lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Consumption of high fructose corn syrup leads to an increase in the concentration of uric acid, a waste product found in urine produced by the liver. An elevated concentration of uric acid may be a symptom of heart disease; a high uric acid concentration in the body is a sign of gout, a disease that spreads throughout the body producing crystal-like structures in joints. http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=208289

    AVOID:
    • Aspartame, NutraSweet, Equal which can cause joint pain
    • Caffeine


    ________________________________________________________________
    Interestingly enough, many of these seem to be symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.



    CAFFEINE can cause: Rapid heartbeat, irritability, anxiety and nervousness, dehydration from diuresis (that irksome need to pee in large quantities, indigestion, lack of concentration, muscle twitching. The aching, itchy ears, muscle twitching, restless legs (and arms) syndrome can be caused by caffeine.

    Through research we know that many chronic diseases are developed by the foods we consume and pollutants in the air. Harmful chemicals in everyday products can be a major contributor http://www.freesamplesite.com/ydf/sh...d.php?t=150311

    Some call Fibromyalgia "Throw Back Syndrome... years ago food and water were pure and we moved our bodies...now lots of things are polluted*and we are couch potatoes, eating artificial sweeteners and artificial flavorings, preservatives, corn sweeteners, etc.

    Our bodies are on "overload" and shutting down from everything -- air fresheners we spray,*dyes and fragrance in our laundry soaps, hand soaps, fabric softeners, lysol, paraffin candles, cleaners, chlorine in our water, anything that touches our skin, douching, cigarette smoke, even colognes and lotions because those are chemicals and our skin is the largest organ in our body. (Yep, even some makeups have chemicals and we smear it all over our face. Skin can suck up everything--that is why we have the nicotine patch, nitro patch and we used to have the birth control patch. Fibromyalgia is thought to be an extreme allergic reaction to our bodies crying out for help. There are more pollutants (toxins) ....and some are the very things we think are helping us is why it is becoming epidemic

    DETOX-

    Low
    • fat intake to increase fat mobilization (moving fat from storage to be used for energy). Limited consumption of olive oil and vegetable oils is allowed.
    • Limited intake of sugar and highly processed foods, and avoidance of alcohol, caffeine, and tobacco.
    • High fiber consumption to absorb the toxic chemicals and eliminate them from the body.
    • Limited consumption of red meat. The bulk of protein intake should come from vegetable sources, such as legumes and tofu, as well as fish from unpolluted waters.
    • Strong emphasis on organic fruits and vegetables (and their juices) with detoxification effects. They include papayas, apples, pears, strawberries, dark green leafy vegetables, carrots, beets, and garlic. Antioxidant foods, such as broccoli, cauliflower, kale, yams, tomatoes, peaches, watermelon, hot peppers, green tea, red grapes, citrus fruits, soybeans, and whole grains are also recommended.
    • Increased water intake to at least eight glasses of water per day to help eliminate waste from the body.
    • Dietary supplementation with high potency multivitamin/mineral products.

    Too much MSG- This food additive -used to enhance flavor- is also known as “monosodium glutatmate” and it goes by a bunch of other aliases on food labels, making it hard to spot, and even harder to avoid because it’s in practically everything! MSG is known as as an “excitotoxin” because it sort of vibrates the brain cells to death, hence the term “excitotoxin.” The immature brain, like that in a fetus or infant is four times more sensitive to excitotoxins than the adult. Sensitivity also increases in the elderly. We, as humans, are five times more sensitive to MSG than mice, and 20 times more sensitive than Rhesus monkeys. I’m telling you this because most studies are done in animals so when I read a study, I feel safe assuming that humans fare out worse than the animals used in the MSG studies. Before you dismiss the idea that what you eat matters to your brain, realize that scientific research strongly supports the notion that “excitotoxicity” is a major mechanism contributing to neuronal degeneration (brain death) and is in fact, tied to epilepsy. It occurs in part due to excessive glutamate production. Guess what, supplements of GABA sold at health food stores may offset the glutamate, and calm your brain down. Taurine could help too. Ask your doctor about these natural options and bear in mind that you’re doctor should study the actual dosages used because epilepsy requires higher dosages than those marked on the product label. Ask what is safe for you, based upon your liver and kidney function, and your particular condition.
