If only it were that easy.

For the most part, folks don’t actually deal with their stress. Instead, they hold it inside. Eventually, the tension builds into a state of constant worry and anxiety. It can become such a normal part of your life that you may not even realize you’re carrying it around.

However the cumulative effects of all this stress can do a lot more than leave you feeling tense and strained. It also sets off a chain reaction that places your body in an inflammatory state. Continue reading

You see, there’s a problem with the soy you’re eating in the name of good health. It’s probably not the real deal.

Fresh, organic fruit and vegetables are undoubtedly healthy. When you eat raw vegetables instead of those that are cooked, you get more fiber. This makes a raw diet especially appealing if you need to lose weight, since fiber can help you feel full longer so that you eat less.

Raw fruits and veggies are also loaded with digestive enzymes and antioxidants. However, some of these benefits may be lost when you cook them. Continue reading
