You Are Not Overweight, You Are Overacidic

Are you looking to achieve optimal health, all while shedding excess weight? Over-acidification of the body sets in motion a destructive cycle of imbalance, disease and obesity. Too much acid in the body robs the blood of oxygen, and without oxygen, the metabolism slows. Food digests more slowly, inducing weight gain and sluggishness, and worse still, causing the food to ferment. It is vital to balance your pH level by reducing your acidity through drinking good pure water, eating natural foods, and eliminating highly processed high sugar content foods.

Digital vs Text Book?

Today’s students see themselves as digital natives, the first generation to grow up surrounded by technology like smartphones, tablets and e-readers. We’ve seen more investment in classroom technologies, with students now equipped with school-issued iPads and access to e-textbooks. The question is, do we learn better from printed books than digital versions? The answer from researchers is a qualified yes. Print books are tangible; the act of turning pages, dragging highlighters across information, and seeing progress has been shown to leave spatial impressions on your mind that help absorb content. And print books don’t have online distractions!

Get Too Much Sun?

If you have a sunburn, applying Aloe Vera is a great way to promote healing and get respite from the pain and swelling. Aloe Vera is a tropical medicinal plant that has been used for thousands of years to treat skin conditions, such as wounds and burns. It is so effective at soothing burns that it’s sometimes referred to as the “burn plant.” To treat a sunburn, spread a layer of pure gel extracted from the inside of an Aloe Vera leaf over the burnt skin. You can grow your own plants at home, or you can use a store-bough product, as long as it is 100% Aloe Vera gel.

Sunscreen 101

Summer is in full swing! Have you been protecting yourself against sun exposure? When selecting a sunscreen, go for the “broad spectrum” protection. Sunscreens with this label protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Make sure your sunscreen has a sun protection factor of 30 or higher. The SPF number is the level of protection the sunscreen provides against harmful rays. Higher SPF numbers do mean more protection, but the higher you go, the smaller the difference becomes. Secondly, look at the ingredients. Physical blockers (titanium dioxide, zinc oxide) provide the best protection and cause less skin irritation than chemical sunscreens.

Body Temperature Regulation – Not Just Seasonal

By age 70, the body’s thermoregulatory control diminishes. Sweat glands decrease function, less body fat insulates less, circulation decreases, and the brain has a tougher time responding. Older people, therefore, need to be aware of other symptoms when considering health conditions. Hot or cold skin temperature, dehydration, altered mental status, low blood pressure, fast pulse, and rapid breathing rates are all telltale signs of illness or injury. With subtle symptoms, it’s recommended you call or visit your doctor. More pronounced symptoms are cause for calling 911.

Cool Down with Yoga

Ayurveda is a sister science of yoga and they work wonderfully together. According to Ayurveda, when overheated, we tend to become more competitive, self-critical, and agitated. In the summertime, yoga practice should be quieting, cooling, and calming. When trying find a balance, remember that “like” increases “like”. Hot Pitta will be aggravated by high temperatures and any sort of fast movement. In other words, yoga class done in a heated room or at a fast pace may be too aggravating to Pitta. The slower the movement, the less agitating to the body and mind. Calming music can be helpful, as well.
