Series by Low Carb Diet Life
Hello Everyone – I am sure that most of you have noticed our “Health Benefits” series that we started on the blog. So, in case any of you are confused, I want to provide you with some insight.
But first, I want to thank you for following the Low Carb Diet Life blog! I appreciate your likes, share, and comments! Please take a moment to like and share us on Facebook.
Disclaimer: Do not make any sudden or drastic changes to your diet without consulting a doctor or health care professional that is familiar with your health care needs. Food really is medicine. Therefore, making a sudden change in your diet may result in unexpected side effects. While dietary changes can be very beneficial to your health, it may reduce the need for certain medications.
While many people are on a low carb diet to lose weight and keep it off, some are on a low carb diet to improve their health!
1. Diabetes/High Blood Pressure
Diabetics often have multiple health concerns to deal with. So, while a low carb diet can greatly benefit their weight loss efforts and blood sugar levels, they may also need help with finding ways to lower their blood pressure and cholesterol. While a low carb, low sodium diet can take their health a step further in the right direction, our health benefits series is designed to help them improve their health even more so. Many herbs and spices naturally reduce inflammation in the arteries, reduce bad cholesterol, increase good cholesterol, and improve blood circulation. The health benefits of cinnamon include its ability to naturally lower blood sugar levels. Therefore, less insulin may be needed. While the health benefits of turmeric can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
2. Candida Yeast/Leaky Gut Syndrome
Some people are on a low carb diet to combat candida yeast overgrowth and leaky gut syndrome. Candida is a type of fungus that thrives on sugar (like most bacteria, viruses, and cancers). Therefore, a low carb diet is an essential aspect of dealing with this problem. However, it does not end here. These individuals must combat bad bacteria that proliferates in the body. Therefore, the low carb diet life health benefits series is geared to help these individuals find ways to get rid of bad bacteria while increasing good bacteria. The health benefits of eating coconut oil and the health benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar are a good place to get started.
3. Cancer Diagnosis
As a radiation therapist, I know that a low carb diet along with proper medical care will benefit most cancer patients because cancer loves sugar. Well, again, although just getting started, our health benefits series can take these individuals a step further.
For example, the health benefits of ginger can help chemotherapy patients alleviate nausea and vomiting. The health benefits of turmeric can help them deal with aches and pains. Then too, ingesting bioperine, an extract of black pepper, help improve the bioavailability of whatever you take it with. In fact, research clearly indicates that bioperine makes turmeric (curcumin) 2,000 more effect! And many, if not all, unsweetened herbs and spices can help boost the immune system in one way or another. Many destroy bacteria, yeast, virus, and cancer cells.
4. Weight Loss
And last, but not least, the health benefits series can help you lose weight and keep it off! Many of these low carb herbs, spices, and teas are a gentle daily detox. As your body gets rid of excess bacteria, natural energy levels can increase. With an increase in energy, more calories are typically burned. Then too, many have a direct impact on your metabolism. They cause your body to increase the rate in which you burn calories. So, if you are on a low carb diet just to lose weight, you can think of our health benefits series as preventative medicine.
I hope you are enjoying and benefiting from our health benefits series. It is nice to know when you are doing something good for your health and well-being. If you have made it this far – thanks for reading!
