I found out about beneficial usage of Omega 3 acids long time ago, but decided to take it daily only now, after I've done my own research. Here are some pleasant effects:
✅ increases HDA (good cholesterol), lowers triglycerides and total cholesterol levels, which leads to increased possibility of heart diseases;
✅ an analysis of 17 clinical studies using fish oil supplements found that taking 3 or more grams of fish oil daily may reduce blood pressure in people with untreated hypertension (you should firstly visit your physician for taking such high dosage);
✅ Clinical evidence suggests that EPA and DHA (eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid), the two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil help reduce risk factors for heart disease, including high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Fish oil has been shown to lower levels of triglycerides (fats in the blood), and to lower the risk of death, heart attack, stroke, and abnormal heart rhythms in people who have already had a heart attack. Fish oil also appears to help prevent and treat atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) by slowing the development of plaque and blood clots, which can clog arteries;
✅ people with diabetes often have high triglyceride and low HDL levels. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil can help lower triglycerides and apoproteins (markers of diabetes), and raise HDL. Some people with type 2 diabetes may have slight increases in fasting blood sugar when taking fish oil;
✅ in one study of 42 women, participants had less menstrual pain when they took fish oil supplements than when they took placebo;
These are just a few benefits of taking fish oil supplements.
The other primary sources of Omega 3 are fish (such as salmon), nut oils and plants.
❗️Remember, dosing of supplements should be based on the amount of EPA and DHA, not on the total amount of fish oil.
I take about 2,7 grams daily (I have no history of heart or other diseases) so as my father. He had hart attack in 2012, having high blood pressure now and taking lot of pills, although he still works and feels fine. He has been taking Omega 3 for couple of weeks now. Hoping to see effects during next couple months.
🌟🌟🌟 #stressreduction is key to #optimalhealth and #wellness . When you reduce stress it helps balance your cortisol levels. Cortisol is your main #stress hormone. Increased cortisol causes blood sugar imbalance that can cause weight gain, poor memory and lead to increased cholesterol, #heartdisease and #diabetes . 🌟🌟🌟 Click the link in my bio to join my exclusive Facebook community to learn more about Tiny Changes for Better Health. 🌟🌟🌟 What are you doing to reduce stress today??
I've probably posted about it before but it's worth mentioning again... Carr's method is super effective. I managed to quit about 4-5 years ago for the span of a year or more but fell back into the trap of smoking again and have tried to quit multiple times since with little (read: "no") success. I'd get about 3 days in and feel great and swear up and down I'd never smoke again but invariably Id end up meeting someone who smokes or who's going to ask me for one or a group of people smoking on the street or I get bored or stressed and decide on "just one" and claim "I won't buy a pack" ... This book totally solved my relapse dilemma by killing my desire to smoke. When I first quit for over a year I had done so because I couldn't deal with the mucus and stress in the mornings. I was throwing up disgusting green, black and yellow mucus into the sink and right then it really prompted me to quit cold turkey which was successful for a long time but I ultimately not successful at all since I started to smoke again.
I figured I could quit again just as easily as I had in the past if it got to be too much but I've never had so much trouble quitting something that's clearly of 0% benefit to human life.
Like I said, through reading this book I have killed my psychological desire to smoke or intake nicotine period. I don't want em, don't need em, don't want a vaporizer substitute and have no urge to start again. I am however dealing with other influences or triggers as well as physical "withdrawal" (having dealt with that before idk why now it was so hard to stop... ) - literally 3 days of "go fuck yourself" attitude and then it's over, but I've been reaching like crazy in the past few days and I know I don't want em even while I'm smoking, before I buy or ask, and certainly after I'm done. I physically just cannot stop feeding myself nicotine. Today armed with even more knowledge than I had a few years ago I can confidently say I'm done and won't be back despite being in smoking environments or around friendly smokers on a daily basis.
You might not see the point in buying this book, you may just want to quit without shelling out the cash...
This is NOT a cosmetic surgery post. My wonderful 😇patient with severe #ObstructiveSleepApnea who has graciously offered to share his story hoping to #inspire other patients seeking therapy. Before surgery he woke up on average 55 times an hour 😫due to anatomic blockage/obstruction of his airway. After surgery, these episodes went down to normal level, less than five an hour (and I couldn't resist fixing his bite in the process 😁). Sleep apnea causes more than just daytime sleepiness and fatigue 😴 . #OSA causes numerous physiological and neurological changes increasing risk of #heartdisease , #hypertension , #diabetes , #stroke , 🤒depression, decreased #libido 😱, memory loss and poor #concentration to name a few. #MaxilloMandibularAdvancement#Surgery 😷🏥💉 is the most successful surgical procedure for Obstructive sleep apnea, whereby upper and lower jaws are lengthened to increase the airway space. 🌬🌬🌬Short-term pain for a life-time gain.🌞🌈 THIS PROCEDURE IS COVERED BY OUR HEALTHCARE IN CANADA 🇨🇦 I wonder if Carry Fisher's obstructive sleep apnea was controlled. We need so much more public awareness about this silent disease 😶🤕 and its devastating ramifications 😪. Find out the facts. Spread the word.

On my run today I met a dog and discovered runs are infinitely better with a dog! 🐶 plus there's evidence that dog owners are less likely to develop heart disease because of how much more active they are forced to be. Get moving dog loving Britain (but also cat loving Britain, or just Britain in general, and hey let's just extend that to the world) http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/HealthyLiving/Owning-a-Pet-May-Protect-You-from-Heart-Disease_UCM_453586_Article.jsp#mainContent
You, too, should move towards a more plant-centered diet and lifestyle for better health. What's more healthy than the fruits and vegetables your mom made you eat? There's so much to gain...and nothing to lose except for your medications and chronic diseases.
Hallo ihr Lieben! ☺️
Ich bin Simone, 21 & aus Regensburg 🌍 Der Grund warum ich mit Bloggen anfangen will ist ganz einfach der, dass ich eine schwere Herzkrankheit hab! Aber nein, euer Mitleid könnt ihr euch schenken! 💪🏼 Mir geht es dafür gut & ich darf mich absolut nicht beschweren! Ich will ganz einfach anderen betroffenen Mut machen & Personen, welche nicht betroffen sind, zeigen, dass man trotzdem ein ganz normales Leben führen kann! 😌 Klar, ich hab meine Einschränkungen, aber ich komm super damit klar! Ich hab trotzdem meine Freunde, liebe shoppen, geh gerne essen, suchte stundenlang Netflix, bin Fußballfan, will in Zukunft mehr reisen, wohne bald alleine, geh ganz normal arbeiten, hab meinen Führerschein & ein Auto! Ich kann einfach ein normales Leben führen! 🤗
Ich mein, viele Menschen nehmen mittlerweile Medikamente, die meisten Menschen haben Narben, egal ob von einem Unfall oder wegen einer Krankheit! Ich darf nun mal keine Achterbahnen fahren, als Kind war es schlimm für mich. Alle durften nur ich nicht, ich musste warten - mittlerweile ist es allerdings völlig in Ordnung, glaub ich hätte eh zu viel Angst! 👅 Die einzige Einschränkung wo mich wirklich stört ist, dass ich nicht fliegen darf 😪 Aber dafür stehen mir ja Auto, Bus, Zug und Schiff zur Verfügung! 🚗🚌🚄🛳 Dank Instagram kommen immer mehr Orte auf meine Reiseliste, welche für mich erreichbar sind & ich bisher nicht kannte - danke dafür! 😍
Meiner Meinung nach bin ich ein ganz normaler Mensch, nur eben mit einem Schwerbehindertenausweis & Einschränkungen, aber hey, dafür lebe ich noch! ❤️
Schönen Vizefreitag euch! 💋

"MY NAME IS OLA, PLEASE SHARE MY TESTIMONY." #####Suddenly , Just like that! Olowogbogboro healed my husband! I am typically the kind of person that instant miracles are not quite "my thing", however, this has changed! I joined the hallelujah challenge only because I felt my prayer and praise life needed help. I wasn't expectant or looking for miracles until my husband got a scare in his general medical test results 2 days after I joined the challenge and this sent us to the hospital to visit a physician, it turned out that the physician wasn't worried about the scare as it was readings that could have been easily triggered, however, he was more worried about my husband's heart health.
My husband for about 10 years or more has had a pain in his heart that comes and goes from time to time and after so many tests and consultations in different hospitals and with different doctors, he was diagnosed with Ischemic heart disease and placed on heart medication ever since (this was about 3 years ago)
The physician then asked him to run a series of tests and increase the dosage of all his medication to stronger ones. That night you asked us to bring out test results or write what diseases we wanted healing for(which I did). I danced around and prophesied healing upon my husband, who then proceeded to run all the tests during the course of the week.#### Fast forward to this afternoon - 3 tests later, ECG, ECHO, Cardio Angiogram - results show everything is normal! No defects or damage the to his heart. My husband has been taken off the heart medication and certified heart healthy! God came through just like that, No more heart medication! We are still in shock. My husband feels like he has a new life! To God be all the glory!! Praise God!!!!! ##### *

Going vegan has changed so much in my life for the better! I'm coming up for being vegan five years soon. I've never felt better and healthier.
Since going vegan I've experienced this surge of energy and health. I'm more active than I have ever been to deal with all this excess energy and the healthy and nutritious food has changed my body so much for the better.
Don't get me wrong - you can be unhealthy on a vegan lifestyle- but my passion for cooking (which I really only developed after going vegan) helps me find the best and most nutritious ingredients and blitz up wonderful foods!
Not only has my vegan lifestyle changed my body - it's beneficial for my health, the environment and planet and of course the animals.
If you're interested or unsure about the nutritional benefits of a plant-based diet, please watch What The Health @whatthehealthfilm #whatthehealth
A fantastic film about nutrition and health implications and how a plant-based diet and lifestyle can change our lives for the better. Even how it can reverse diseases such as Diabetes type 2 #diabetes#diabetestype2#vegan#govegan#nutrition#plantbased#plantpower#runner#athlete#veganrunner#vegansrock#veganforlife#health#heartdisease#heartattack#stroke#diet#lifestyle#poweredbyplants#healthy#healthyeating#bethechange
There is a reason we happily take our children to fruit farms but the idea of a slaughterhouse visit makes us deeply uneasy. So the industry that's destroying our health and our planet (literally) has to keep it hidden in order for people to keep supporting it. Please watch #whatthehealth now on Netflix and available on other websites for your own sake!! (It's all about food and health and no it does not show any violent footage I promise). I promise you that you won't regret taking the time to educate yourself on your health and how food plays a very important role. There is a reason so many people are sick these days! My own poor dog now suffers from diabetes and I have to give her insulin shots twice a day. I'm hopeful in this crazy upside down world we all live in right now that we'll take our health back into our own hands while trying to save our planet while there is still time. And we all say we're against animal abuse yet every single purchase we make either directly supports it or doesn't. Let's all come together and practice compassion and nonviolence which I believe we all can agree on. This is also about human rights. Not only could we end world hunger but sadly "there is a disproportionate number of hog facilities located near communities of color and low income communities". This industry is so horrible for so many reasons 🤢Every small change counts!

Amen! Hezekiah Walker ( sp) had a song in the 90s that I used to war with. It always gave my spirit strength. While it's been a tremendous journey the last 3 months today I finally dug into the word, praised, and prayed my heart out. Got real with myself thus allowing me to truly ask for my needs. Yes the Lord knows our hearts but he still expects us to ask. While I'm literally no different physically other than a little worse honestly my mental well being has shifted 100%. I've NEVER endured anything like this. I've never wanted to die because of pain. I've never been angrier because this should NEVER have happened!NEVER completely wrong to put any human through this complete negligence ! That is within but also within me is this: I should be dead after throwing a 10 inch clot from my heart to femoral artery I was covered from it not going to my brain! I should be dead because it sat there for 10 wks!!!! My leg should already been gone, its fighting like a warrior to stay!!,I should have zero joy but I'm filled! I should have given up but God wouldn't allow it!!! I've been covered from head to toe very literally! God is good , my friends and family are beautiful a special shout out to my cousin who always cries and gets angry with me and talks for hrs if needed with me @mommie23js to Mikeylee for getting it @2smileisgr8er at my sis Shalena no IG acct whose kept me laughing,my beautiful son whose let me cry, laugh, vent and not judged me one moment @halciondaze and my beautiful husband for just being all the above and more. For every single one of my IG family who has battled spiritually with me, for me, covering me I'm so blessed!! Y'all have become my family. Thank you😘❤️#bloodclot#heartdisease#igfamily#wwigfamily#healthissues#healthylife#godisgood#godislife#jesus#prayerworks#mentallywell#bible#phillipines#walkwithjesus#noweaponshallprosper#hezekiahwalker#warriorprayer#warriorsofgod#itsgoingtobeokay

I got a big ole organic aloe plant from Sevananda Natural Foods today. I like to use fresh aloe vera gel because most commercial aloe vera gels in a bottle, even natural and organic ones, have estrogenic parabens and other estrogen mimicking chemicals which cause cancer, obesity, diabetes, fibroids, and more. ALL plastics contain estrogen too i.e. Bisphenol A and phthalates. The aloe plant is great for skin, eczema, rashes, sunburn, and for your hair. It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory food which can be taken internally. Inflammation is the number cause of disease causing cancer, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, leaky gut, high blood pressure, and more. Hence why inflammatory foods like wheat, sugar, omega 6 vegetable oils i.e. corn, sunflower, safflower, soy, and sugar are killing millions annually.
We will talking about inflammation and natural remedies and more secrets to being healthy at the upcoming Death by MediSin conference featuring Dr. Whitaker, Doctah B, Chef Ahki, and Dr Sebi's daughter. Event link in bio for more info.
I play too much, I know. But based on the doctor's report any day could really be my last. Seriously though, I feel ok in my body, but my mind and spirit is through the roof. So ready to break out this joint. In the meantime, I'll keep laughing to keep from crying. ✌🏾
Anyone seen this one?? This is another documentary about the links between the food we eat and how it impacts our health! It's thought provoking and makes me reconsider some of the foods that I eat.
If anyone else has seen this I'm curious what YOUR thoughts are??? Have you looked at the studies? Changed your eating habits? Drop a comment or send me a message! * I haven't personally looked into any of the research studies discussed in this documentary, but I plan to*
Why is there such an interest in stem cells? · Increase understanding of how diseases occur. By watching stem cells mature into cells in bones, heart muscle, nerves, and other organs and tissue, researchers and doctors may better understand how diseases and conditions develop. · Generate healthy cells to replace diseased cells (regenerative medicine). Stem cells can be guided into becoming specific cells that can be used to regenerate and repair diseased or damaged tissues in people.
People who might benefit from stem cell therapies include those with spinal cord injuries, type 1 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, stroke, burns, and osteoarthritis.
Stem cells may have the potential to be grown to become new tissue for use in transplant and regenerative medicine. Researchers continue to advance the knowledge on stem cells and their applications in transplant and regenerative medicine.
