No Wheat, No Sugar, No Dairy! Delicious Avocado, Coconut & Sweet Potato Brownies

Image
If you are a dessert lover, you know that finding a healthy and delicious one, which would be low in calories, is not an easy task.

Traditional brownies are often high in inflammatory ingredients such as flour, processed sugar, and pasteurized hormone filled dairy, and thus raise blood sugar, and the levels of cortisol(stress hormone) and insulin (fat storage) and lead to weight gain, mood issues, and hormonal imbalances.

On the other hand, the brownies we are suggesting today are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and healthy fats!

This is due to the remarkable properties of the main ingredient- avocado!

These fruits are one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, as they are rich sources of essential amino acids,  fatty acids, and antioxidant phytonutrients.

Moreover, avocados are abundant in oleic acid, which is a monounsaturated fat that increases fat metabolism, the carotenoid antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, and Vitamin E (tocopherol).These antioxidants reduce oxidative stress …

What Alcohol Consumption Does to Your Brain

Image
Do you know what alcohol actually does to your brain?

Even though we are constantly hearing about how marijuana is harmful to our body and how people caught with a few grams of cannabis experience lengthy prison terms, the government obviously forgets that alcohol is another drug that should not be allowed as well!

In fact, alcohol is more harmful to our body than marijuana. Every week, someone dies due to alcohol poisoning, while it is impossible to overdose on marijuana. Alcohol is closely related to brain problems and this is confirmed by a 2017 study.

The study followed 550 men and women for 30 years, measuring their brain function and structure in order to determine the effect of alcohol on the brain.

It was found out that the more alcohol you drink the more atrophy you will experience in your brain’s hippocampus, a seahorse-shaped structure in the brain, responsible for storing memories.

People who drank 17 standard drinks or more of alcohol per week had the highest risk. However, e…

10+ Foods That You Should Eat Daily For Clean Arteries

Image
Atherosclerosis is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease, and it is the condition of progressive clogging of the arteries.

The arteries are in fact blood vessels whose role is to transport oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body. Normally, they are elastic, flexible, and strong.

Cardiovascular disease, which includes strokes, heart attacks, and peripheral vascular disease, is the major cause of death in the U.S. and accounts for about 600,000 deaths annually. This is mostly a result of the fact that it kills silently, as it does not show any symptoms until the state is severe.

When it comes to clogged arteries, the symptoms depend on their type:

* Coronary arteries: CHD, or coronary heart disease, is the state of clogged heart arteries, and the heart muscle cannot get enough blood. The main symptoms include angina, or pain felt in the chest, and pressure in the shoulders, back, neck, arms, and jaw, as well as shortness of breath and heartbeat issues.

How to Get Rid of Phlegm and Mucus in Chest & Throat (Instant Result)

Image
People often experience some kind of blockage in the nasal passages or throat, persistent cough, and find it hard to breathe.

Phlegm is the thick viscous substance secreted by the mucous membrane of your respiratory tract whose role is to fight infections, especially in the case of a severe cold.

It accumulates in the throat and chest, thus congesting it and the body uses cough to expel it.

Excessive amounts of phlegm commonly occur in the case of cold, flu, sinusitis and viral or bacterial infections, as well as allergic reactions due to asthma, hay fever, or damaged vocal cords.

In these cases, people often experience fever, weakness, a runny nose, constant cough, and difficulties breathing as well.  If not treated on time, the phlegm might lead to clogging of the bronchial tubes, and secondary upper respiratory infections.

The Muscle in Your Back That Can Cause Pain, Anxiety And Depression That Nobody Talks About

Image
As Danielle Olson called it, the psoas major muscle (pronounced “so-as”) is the “muscle of the soul.” This muscle is located close to the hip bone, and it stabilizes the core, influences flexibility, mobility, the function of the joints, structural balance, and much more.

This muscle supports the upright posture of the body, and when stretched out, it helps you to relate to the present moment by releasing the tension.

Researchers have found that it is extremely important for the psychological wellbeing. The author of The Psoas Book, Liz Koch, says that it “literally embodies our deepest urge for survival, and more profoundly, our elemental desire to flourish.

It is the main muscle linked to the physical stability and is the only muscle which connects the spinal column and the legs.

It stretches from the legs to the spine, in fact, from the T12 vertebrae, goes down the five lumbar vertebrae, and attaches to the top of the thigh bone.

It is also connected to the diaphragm, which modulates …
