CHILD NUTRITION

Happy Children’s Day.

Happy_Young_Boy_H

A happy and healthy child is every mother’s joy and pride. When a child is sickly or suffers an ailment, its usually a trauma for the mother because she’s the one who is sick. Mothers can bear me witness.

Most ailments boils back to our nutrition which makes me ask this question today;

WHAT ARE YOU FEEDING YOUR ADORABLE ONES?

It’s no news that soil is depleted of its nutrients, so how does depleted soils have anything to do with poor health? Well foods like fruits, vegetables, cereals that are grown these days, are by a large percent grown on farms that are so depleted of the essential minerals, by the time these foods make their way to your kitchen table there is very little to no nutritional value left to nourish your body.

You may be thinking to yourself, well if the soils are so depleted then why do we see some of the brightest, color rich, full bodied fruits and vegetables in the market? The answer to that is fertilizer, and what is wrong with that? Well did you know that there are only 3 minerals that are required to grow produce like this? Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium (NPK)is all it takes. Meaning it lacks 57 more nutrients that your body needs.

What we get are farm produce and livestock laden with fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, strong antibacterial, growth hormones that imitates and conflicts with the body’s natural hormones.

Foods are fast becoming foodless because they lack the necessary nutrients that feed our cells and the cells are what makes up the body. Processed, bagged, canned foods are filled with preservatives, additives, artificial flavorings and other chemical ingredients that are mostly harmful to the body and also carcinogenic.

Our children inhale toxins from the air, accumulate toxins from food and drinks daily which brings me to my last question and OFFER.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD GETS THE RECOMMENDED DIETARY ALLOWANCES FOR THEIR:

PROPER GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT?

GENTLTY RIDDING THEM OF TOXINS?

I introduce to you this morning these vital supplements to make up for the lost daily nutrients in your child’s nutrition.

Absorbent C 

  • It is a powerful antioxidant, forming part of the body’s defense system against the harmful effects of free radicals.
  • It is a beneficial supplement for the skin, as it supports the formation of intercellular collagen
  • It is necessary for the maintenance of healthy connective tissue.

Vitamin C is water soluble, and is secreted from the body. Since humans are among the few animals that are unable to make their own vitamin C, we must therefore get it from our food, drinks, and supplements, such as Forever Absorbent-C®.

How Acidic Is Your Body?

Presently, the physicians and other health-care professionals are ignoring a fundamental aspect of health and that is the imbalances in the body’s pH (acid-alkaline ratio).

Conventional medicine ignores pH balance—while nutritionist and wellness consultants recognizes that our bodies are continually striving for this balance, and that chronic imbalance leaves us susceptible to disease. Most important: Acid-alkaline balance is easy to regulate. You can make very simple changes to your diet—and improve your body’s pH balance within hours.

The body’s pH balance strongly influences the risk for osteoporosis, sarcopenia (muscle loss), fractures and kidney stone formation—and possibly diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid problems, cancer and other insidious conditions.

When the body’s fluids become too acidic, minerals are pulled out of bones and tissues to compensate—leading, in the long term, to thinner bones and lower muscle mass. Overly acidic tissues also make one susceptible to inflammation (a known risk for many chronic diseases), impair enzymatic reactions in cells and overload the lymphatic system, impeding the body’s natural detoxification process.

EATING FOR A BALANCED PH

Eating to maintain a neutral or slightly alkaline pH is easier than you might think, as a pH-friendly diet is consistent with other healthy eating habits. When my patients eat more healthful foods, their main health problems diminish and numerous other unexplained problems (low energy levels, joint and muscle pain, rashes and acne) start to improve. Here’s what I recommend…

Limit your salt. Salt consists of sodium and chloride—the combination of the two molecules sets the stage for low-grade metabolic acidosis. Healthy people require only up to 1,300 mg of sodium daily. When grocery shopping, read food labels carefully. Good rule: Opt for fresh foods over anything that comes in a package.

Eat lots of veggies. Strive to make one-third of your diet consist of fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits. A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that high consumption of potassium, found in fruits and vegetables, and the resulting more alkaline pH, were strongly linked to muscle preservation in people age 65 and older. Beware: Most canned vegetables contain added salt, and some canned fruits contain added sugar. Another good rule: Fill half of your plate with vegetables, one-fourth with fish or other lean protein, and the remaining one-fourth with a small amount of starch (such as a sweet potato or brown rice).

Stay hydrated. That means drinking mostly water, not soft drinks, alcohol or caffeinated beverages. There is water in fruits and vegetables, too. Remember: It is especially important to drink more water if you fall short on your daily intake of vegetables and fruits. Interesting: A squeeze of lemon in your water adds taste and has an alkalinizing effect in your body.

The ALOE VERA PLANT

What is Aloe Vera?

Aloe Vera is a species of Aloe, native to northern Africa. It is a stemless or very short-stemmed succulent plant growing to 80-100 cm tall, spreading by offsets and root sprouts. The leaves are lanceolate, thick and fleshy, green to grey-green, with a serrated margin. The flowers are produced on a spike up to 90 cm tall, each flower pendulous, with a yellow tubular corolla 2 to 3 cm long.

Aloe Vera has long been a popular houseplant. Often called the ‘miracle plant’ or the ‘natural healer’, Aloe Vera is a plant of many surprises. It flourishes in warm and dry climates, and to many people it looks like a cactus with fleshy thorny leaves. In fact it is a member of the Lily family, staying moist where other plants wither and die by closing its pores to prevent moisture loss.

There are around 400 species of Aloe, but it is the Aloe Barbadensis Miller (Aloe Vera or “true aloe”) plant which has been of most use to mankind because of the medicinal properties it displays.

The Aloe Vera Plant

Although there are many Aloe’s the term Aloe Vera (“true Aloe”) refers to the Aloe Barbadensis Miller. Fully grown the plant stands 60 to 90 cm high, and a mature leaf is 7 to 10 cm across at the base, weighing 1.5 to 2 kg.

The lower leaf of the plant is used for medicinal purpose. If the lower leaf is sliced open, the gel obtained can be applied on the affected area of the skin. Leaves and seeds are the two edible parts of Aloe Vera.

SAVE THE VAGINA NOW!!!

images (8)

To maintain a healthy vagina you must know what to do to avoid infection and it is equally important to educate your sexual partner on some of them to also help you help the vagina.

Here are some few things you can do or avoid.

1. Fingering
During foreplay or romance, as part of it some people insert their finger or fingers into the vagina. The question is, how many people wash their hands before sexual intercourse? Some people do not even keep their nails clean so it gathers a lot of germs and during the fingering, these germs are deposited in the vagina…leading to infection. Same thing apply to autopleasure acts or masturbation.

2. Anal sex
I am not here to tell anybody to have anal sex or not to but I simply want to draw the attention of those who engage in anal sex with the opposite sex that it is dangerous to have anal sex and continue having penovaginal sex. If this is done, the penis will pick bacteria from the anus and deliver them to the vagina even if you are using a condom….which will lead to infection.

3. Quest to make the vagina TIGHT
Some guys complain bitterly about the vagina of their sexual partners. They complain that it’s too big and they no more feel any sensation during intercourse. Some ladies are therefore pushed to find a quick solution and in the process some use herbs or other substances in the vagina with the hope of making the vagina tight. Some of the substances cause infection or sepsis. Some of the herbs can cause the vagina to get tighter to the extent that penetration is no more possible. This will require treatment.

4. Douching
Some parents, when bathing for their baby girls put warm water in a milk tin or dip a towel in the warm water and pour the water through a hole made beneath the tin or squeeze the water out of the towel into the vagina of the baby. This is sooooo WRONG as it can damage the hymen.
Some parents also insert ginger or pepper or both into the vagina of adolescents as a form of punishment. This is sooooo WRONG as it can lead to infection.

Some people are use to bathing by adding dettol or other detergents to the water and they put this solution inside the vagina with the help of sponge or towel or just the hand with soap to clean the vagina. This is soooo WRONG as it will change the normal flora in the vagina, leading to infection.

5. Use of water closet
Some people have the habit of not sitting on the seat of the WC when using it so they end up urinating on the seat. The possibility of picking infection when using it in that condition is high. Don’t let your pant be at the thigh level when using the WC especially the public ones as the inner of the pant may rub the surface of the WC. Where the water is not running and people have used but have not flushed and you don’t have any choice but to also use it, use enough toilet roll to cover before using the WC to avoid any splashes on the vulva.

6. Washing and drying
Develop the habit of disinfecting your panties frequently…depending on the number of pants you have. Keep exclusive panties to wear whenever you are menstruating and don’t mix those panties with your regular panties. Pay particular attention to those panties when washing. Ensure that the panties are made of cotton and are dried in the sun or well ironed to kill germs.

7. Change sanitary pads
Some people try to economize the use of their sanitary pads so during the period they tend to still wear the pad because there is little or no blood. This is soooo WRONG as it can lead to infection.

NB: If there is any bad scent from the vagina or there is a discharge coming from the vagina then it might be an infection which you have to have it treated.

Help save the vagina by ensuring that you get the message to as many friends as possible. Help save the vagina by getting the message to your sexual partner or sisters. Let us all join hand in saving the vagina.
