Health > CGI Healthy Life By CGI Holistic Wellness Center

As the spring arrives, we are excited to welcome back the nice weather, the blooming flowers and the trees. However, with the advent of the spring, an unwelcomed guest is on its way – seasonal allergies. Are you already sneezing?

The traditional approach to deal with seasonal allergies has been over-the-counter drugs. However, many allergy sufferers (including some medical doctors) are now using some alternative and holistic methods to deal with their symptoms. The holistic approaches are proving to be very effective for relieving these. Here are some alternative ways that you can benefit from, in overcoming your seasonal allergies.

Seven Foods for Health Digestion and Stronger Bowels

 

Health > CGI Healthy Life By CGI Holistic Wellness Center

Proper elimination and strong bowels not only serve your physical health, they are just as important to your mental health. Without this healthy ecosystem in place we become malnourished, toxic, emotionally stressed or sick.


Bowel movements rarely pass for pleasant conversation, but we also agree that the happiest bowel movements are the ones that pass easily.

Your bowel is an amazing fluid-absorbing organ. Its job is to absorb most of the fluid (about 90%)—food, water, digestive juices and bile—that enters it daily. Alter this fluid absorbing balance and suddenly, constipation or diarrhea is all you can talk about.

And, just as the earth has an ecosystem, our bowels are an ecosystem that supports and nourishes us. Proper elimination and strong bowels not only serve your physical health, they are just as important to your mental health. Without this healthy ecosystem in place we become malnourished, toxic, emotionally stressed or sick.

Naturally occurring bacteria in the gut, such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria, enhance intestinal function and compete with and suppress pathogenic bacteria, yeasts, molds and viruses. They also regulate and stimulate immune system activity.

We are born with these friendly bacteria in our digestive tract. Over time and throughout a person's life, our gut can become unbalanced or overrun with bad bacteria. But you can restore balance through diet and supplements.

Is coffee good or bad for my health?


Health > CGI Healthy Life By CGI Holistic Wellness Center

Due to its addictiveness, people have thought drinking coffee was as bad as smoking cigarettes. However, recent studies are showing some good news for coffee drinkers. Let’s see some facts about coffee.

While coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world, there has been a notion that drinking coffee is an unhealthy habit. Due to its addictiveness, people have thought drinking coffee was as bad as smoking cigarettes. However, recent studies are showing some good news for coffee drinkers. Let’s see some facts about coffee.

According to the study done at Harvard School of Public Health, coffee consumption may protect against type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, liver cancer, and liver cirrhosis. Harvard’s study on coffee and mortality found that those who drank coffee regularly had lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease than those who rarely did. Science has yet to prove the cause and effect between coffee and these illnesses but considering these facts, coffee seems to be one of the greatest beverages. Isn’t this wonderful? There aren’t many things that we love which are actually good for our body. Coffee can be one of these things!

So what else you should know about drinking coffee?
