Diabetes



Abdominal fat > type 2 diabetes and heart disease | https://www.diabetes.co.uk/body/visceral-fat.html

Diabetes. High blood sugar contributes to higher levels of a dangerous cholesterol called very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and lower HDL cholesterol. High blood sugar also damages the lining of your arteries

Sugar → Diabetes → Artery clogging → Stroke → Medication → Kidney → Liver


Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes, blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels.




Heart



A stroke occurs when an artery in your brain is blocked or leaks. During a stroke, you feel sudden numbness and confusion or have trouble walking and seeing.

High blood pressure forces your heart to work harder to pump blood to the rest of your body. This causes part of your heart (left ventricle) to thicken. A thickened left ventricle increases your risk of heart attack, heart failure and sudden cardiac death


Family history of stroke determines your likelihood of your heart diseases.

Ischaemic Heart Disease is another term for coronary heart disease or coronary artery disease.

The term “ischaemic” refers to inadequate blood flow as the arteries may be blocked or narrowed, making it difficult for the arteries to supply blood to the heart.


A stroke will cause significant speech impairment which in turn affects occupation as every job requires communication.

LDL can build up in your arteries and form fatty, waxy deposits called plaques. High level of LDL cholesterol raise your risk for heart disease and stroke.


HDL absorbs cholesterol and carries it back to the liver. The liver then flushes it from the body. High levels of HDL cholesterol can lower your risk for heart disease and stroke.

Foods to avoid if you have high cholesterol levels include white bread, white potatoes, and white rice, whole-fat dairy products, and any highly processed sugars or flours.

Fried foods and red meat should also be avoided, as well as foods high in saturated fats.


Foods that have been shown to reduce cholesterol include fatty fish, walnuts and other nuts, oatmeal, psyllium (and other soluble fibers), and foods fortified with plant sterols or stanols.

Study suggests lower LDL cholesterol is better

Blood protein known as apolipoprotein B (apoB) indicates the number of cholesterol-laden particles circulating in the blood—a truer indicator of the threat to our arteries than absolute cholesterol levels

Sleep



Until recently, scientists haven’t really understood why sleep is often the best medicine for fighting off an infection or why good sleep hygiene keeps us healthy.

New Study Pinpoints Why Sleep Is Often the Best Medicine

Our bodies need sleep in order to function properly, both on a physical and mental level.


Getting enough quality sleep improves concentration, mood, ability to function and alertness.

It strengthens the immune system and reduces stress levels, and keeps blood pressure and cardiovascular levels in check.

It even helps you lose weight, by regulating the hormones that control the appetite.





Stress



Stress can also contribute to factors that increase your risk of heart disease, like high blood pressure and high cholesterol. 

When you are stressed, your body releases adrenaline, a hormone that temporarily causes your heart rate to speed up and your blood pressure to rise.

 Too many episodes of this kind of acute stress can cause inflammation in your arteries, which could be a contributing factor to heart attacks.


Burnout is more psycho issue than digital usage else all those who watch TV after work will burn out - https://www.techradar.com/sg/news/world-of-tech/are-you-heading-for-computer-burnout-907133




Diseases



Artery disease triggers stroke, and amnesia

High levels of glucose in your blood may damage the walls of your arteries, and make them develop fatty deposits.


Having trouble sleeping, or not getting enough sleep is linked to rapid reductions in brain volume.

Studies have shown poor sleep can cause protein buildup in the brain that attacks brain cells.

7–8 hours/night of good sleep is essential for stimulating new connections and brain growth.


Studies report that meditation can “permanently rewire” your brain to raise levels of happiness.

The simple act of juggling has recently been linked with better brain function.

Adopt a wholesome diet, get regular exercise, avoid or reduce excess weight, get adequate quality sleep, minimize stress,don’t drink and don't smoke.


The use of antibiotics, antacids and NSAIDs can disrupt the normally healthy population of microorganisms in the gut and result in a leaky gut that lets bacteria into circulation and is very pro-inflammatory

The water we drink contains Chlorine which is good for safety but also disrupts good micro-organisms in our guts and kills molecules of lutein and zeaxanthin in our eyes.

People who don’t easily gain weight are often less aware of how much saturated and trans fat they eat. Nobody can “eat anything they want” and stay heart-healthy.

Healthy body fat percentage has a significant effect on your cholesterol levels – increasing the good cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein, or HDL) which helps to remove the damaging LDL and lower overall total cholesterol.


Reduce your risk factor by maintaining a healthy body fat percentage and consuming a diet that promotes healthy cholesterol levels.

Allergies/asthma/emphysema/chronic bronchitis/GERD/common cold/flu -> night time coughing

Calories restriction and fasting are the best way to lose weight.


Losing weight quickly could lead to gallstones and thinning hair because of minimum amount of nutrition, which can affect hair and bone density.

The real weight loss work is not from the diet, it's the lifestyle changes.

Heart rhythm problems (heart arrhythmias) occur when the electrical impulses that coordinate your heartbeats don't work properly, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly.


Obesity can increase the risk for hepatocellular carcinoma.

Exposure to aflatoxins. Aflatoxins are poisons produced by molds that grow on crops that are stored poorly. Crops, such as grains and nuts, can become contaminated with aflatoxins, which can end up in foods made of these products.


Bronchitis is inflammation of the airways in the lungs that causes coughing. Symptoms include coughing up sputum, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest pain.Bronchitis can be acute or chronic.

Acute bronchitis has a cough that lasts around three weeks, known as chest cold. The likely cause is a viral infection. Risk factors include exposure to tobacco smoke, dust, and air pollution. Treatment involves rest, paracetamol, and NSAIDs.

Our bodies gradually produce less of the immune and growth factors that help our bodies fight off disease and heal damaged body tissue.


Our aging bodies become more vulnerable to disease, our energy level and enthusiasm lessens, our skin loses its elasticity, and we gain unwanted weight and lose muscle tone.

The more insulin in the blood stream, the harder to lose weight

Obesity. Having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater puts you at risk of high cholesterol.


Lack of exercise. Exercise helps boost your body's HDL, or "good," cholesterol while increasing the size of the particles that make up your LDL, or "bad," cholesterol, which makes it less harmful.

Smoking. Cigarette smoking damages the walls of your blood vessels, making them more prone to accumulate fatty deposits. Smoking might also lower your level of HDL, or "good," cholesterol.

Age. Because your body's chemistry changes as you age, your risk of high cholesterol climbs. For instance, as you age, your liver becomes less able to remove LDL cholesterol.


A prolonged acidic body condition leads to illnesses and discomfort

If you measure your weight every morning, you know what causes you to lose or gain weight.

Immune system disorders cause abnormally low activity or over activity of the immune system where the body attacks and damages its own tissues. Immune deficiency diseases decrease the body's ability to fight invaders, causing vulnerability to infections.


In autoimmune diseases, the immune system malfunctions, mistakenly attacking healthy organs and tissues as though they were foreign invaders.

In people with certain thyroid-related autoimmune conditions, the blood level of thyroglobulin antibodies may rise.

Diseases are acidic in nature. An acidic body environment decreases nutrient absorption, lowers energy production, decreases cellular repair and recovery, which increases susceptibility to fatigue and illnesses. 


Atrial fibrillation is an irregular and often rapid heart rate that occurs when the two upper chambers of your heart experience chaotic electrical signals. The result is a fast and irregular heart rhythm.

Hypoxia is a condition in which the body or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply at the tissue level. Hypoxia may be classified as either generalized, affecting the whole body, or local, affecting a region of the body.




GERD



The common risk factors for acid reflux disease – a chronic condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), are:


– Consuming large meals

– Being overweight or obese

– Certain drinks, such as alcohol, coffee, tea, or carbonated drinks


– Smoking

– OTC and prescription medications, including aspirin, ibuprofen, blood pressure medications, or muscle relaxers

– Eating certain foods





Causes Of Back Pain



Lifting a heavy object, or twisting the spine while lifting

Sudden movements that place too much stress on the low back, such as a fall

Poor posture over time


Sports injuries, especially in sports that involve twisting or large forces of impact

While sprains and strains do not sound serious and do not typically cause long-lasting pain, the acute pain can be quite severe.

Medical-Screening



Glucose and hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) - Indicator of diabetes

HDL - low HDL levels are linked to an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease.


LDL - high LDL level leads to a buildup of cholesterol in your arteries

Triglycerides - If you regularly eat more calories than you burn, particularly from high-carbohydrate foods, you may have high triglycerides.

Fibrinogen - High fibrinogen levels not only are associated with an increased risk of heart attack, but also are seen in other inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and glomerulonephritis (inflammation of the kidney).


C-Reactive Protein - predictor of coronary heart disease and type II diabetes.

Thyroglobulin tumor marker - to detect early thyroid cancer

Alpha Fetoprotein (AFP) Tumor Marker Test - High levels of AFP can be a sign of liver cancer or cancer of the ovaries or testicles, as well as noncancerous liver diseases such as cirrhosis and hepatitis.


Lung Cancer Tumor Markers

CA 125 (cancer antigen 125) - ovarian cancer

CA 15-3 and CA 27-29 (cancer antigens 15-3 and 27-29) - breast cancer


CEA (carcinoembryonic antigen) - colorectal cancer, and also for cancers of the lung, stomach, thyroid, pancreas, breast, and ovary

B2M (Beta 2-microglobulin) - multiple myeloma, some lymphomas, and leukemias

Thyroglobulin antibodies (TgAb) - a healthy immune system would not make a lot of antibodies to fight thyroglobulin, since thyroglobulin is not a foreign protein. But, some patients with thyroid cancer will make thyroglobulin antibodies.


Do medical check up at least every 2 year if you're over 35

Do critical medical screening that claims life (cancer markers, drug allergy - if not done, may cause severe reaction in times of operation)

Medical checkup - fix the root cause and adopt the healthy life.


Elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the bad cholesterol, is a major cause of heart disease. LDL causes the build-up of fatty deposits within your arteries, reducing or blocking the flow of blood and oxygen your heart needs.

Low-density lipoprotein (LDL). LDL, or "bad" cholesterol, transports cholesterol particles throughout your body. LDL cholesterol builds up in the walls of your arteries, making them hard and narrow.

High-density lipoprotein (HDL). HDL, or "good" cholesterol, picks up excess cholesterol and takes it back to your liver.


Heart health - Pulse Wave Velocity test

Heart Hearth - CAC (Coronary Arterial Calcification) scan. CAC testing can help reveal whether you have a build-up of calcium in your blood vessels - an early sign coronary artery disease, that often happens with no warning signs.

PSA (prostate-specific antigen) - prostate cancer





Exercise



Because of the angle, the Incline Push Up works your lower chest and back more. On the other hand The Decline Push Up works the upper chest and front shoulders (delts) more than the regular or incline variation. 

Compound exercises are exercises that work multiple muscle groups at the same time. For example, a squat is a compound exercise that works the quadriceps, glutes, and calves.

If you only have a limited amount of time to exercise, you'll work more muscles and build more strength by focusing on compound exercises.


Weight lifting exercise = build muscle

Hitt training exercise = increase metabolism

Any form of exercise rewires the brain: keep your body active.


Plato, the Greek philosopher who lived in the 4th century BC, said ‘Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being,’

Incorrect workout posture doesn't exercise target muscle at 100% full force but also cause damage adjacent tissues and joints.

Resistence training exercise (using your body weight for resistance, by doing push-ups, pull-ups, crunches, leg squats or push-ups against a wall) = build strength






Air



Ideal humidity level: 40% - 55% - https://imgur.com/a/6Aq1lRa

Washing the HEPA filters probably broke some of the fibers or made the gaps between the fibers larger. That would explain why more air passed through after washing, but also more particles!

Washing HEPA filters with water significantly decreases performance you should not wash a HEPA filter.


Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) - Potentially harmful gases, released by combustion. Includes cigarette smoke, candles, and gas stoves.







Acne medications

Pain relievers

Allergy medications


Thyroid medications

Antibiotics

Well-known side effects in people who use statin medications include muscle aches and a slightly increased risk of diabetes, especially when high doses of medication are used.





Household Health Devices



Beurer anti snoring device

Pulse Oximeter


Blood Total Cholesterol Test Kit




Habits To Avoid Gallstones



Avoid over-eating

Avoid or reduce eating between main meals.


Avoid eating heavy meals in the evening.

Drink 2L-4L water of daily - Dehydration also affects the natural fluidity of bile and, thereby, promotes the formation of gallstones.

Epsom Salt with lemon juice can be used to dissolve stone.


One of the main actions of Epsom salt is to dilate (widen) the bile ducts, making it easy for the stones to pass. Moreover, it clears out waste that may obstruct the release of the stones.




Dengue



While some people may experience this well-known itchiness, others may not even realize that they've been bitten.

Some adults have no reaction to mosquito bites at all.


There is no specific medicine to treat dengue.

We can only treat the symptoms of dengue and see your healthcare provider.

See a healthcare provider if you develop a fever or have symptoms of dengue. Tell him or her about your travel.


Rest as much as possible.

Take acetaminophen (also known as paracetamol outside of the United States) to control fever and relieve pain.

Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen!


Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated. Drink water or drinks with added electrolytes.

For mild symptoms, care for a sick infant, child, or family member at home.





White Blood Cells



Your white blood cells account for only about 1% of your blood, but their impact is big. White blood cells are also called leukocytes. They protect you against illness and disease.

Think of white blood cells as your immunity cells. In a sense, they are always at war. They flow through your bloodstream to fight viruses, bacteria, and other foreign invaders that threaten your health.

Monocytes. They have a longer lifespan than many white blood cells and help to break down bacteria.


Lymphocytes. They create antibodies to fight against bacteria, viruses, and other potentially harmful invaders.

Neutrophils. They kill and digest bacteria and fungi. They are the most numerous type of white blood cell and your first line of defense when infection strikes.

Basophils. These small cells seem to sound an alarm when infectious agents invade your blood. They secrete chemicals such as histamine, a marker of allergic disease, that help control the body's immune response.


Eosinophils. They attack and kill parasites and cancer cells, and help with allergic responses.

A number of diseases and conditions may affect white blood cell levels:

Weak immune system. This is often caused by illnesses such as HIV/AIDS or by cancer treatment. Cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy can destroy white blood cells and leave you at risk for infection.


Infection. A higher-than-normal white blood cell count usually means you have some type of infection. White blood cells are multiplying to destroy the bacteria or virus.

Myelodysplastic syndrome. This condition causes abnormal production of blood cells. This includes white blood cells in the bone marrow.

Cancer of the blood. Cancers including leukemia and lymphoma can cause uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell in the bone marrow. This results in a greatly increased risk for infection or serious bleeding.


Myeloproliferative disorder. This disorder refers to various conditions that trigger the excessive production of immature blood cells. This can result in an unhealthy balance of all types of blood cells in the bone marrow and too many or too few white blo

Medicines. Some medicines can raise or lower the body's white blood cell count.

Conditions such as extreme physical stress caused by an injury or emotional stress can also trigger high white blood cell levels. So can inflammation, labor or the end of pregnancy, smoking, or even extreme exercise.





Diet



Aware of heavy metals from organic products

Eat only free range eggs

Eat a nutrient-dense diet to make every bite count.


Eat a variety of fresh, whole foods.

Eat quality protein.

Eat a varied selection of non-starchy vegetables.


Eat a varied selection of non-starchy fruits.

Healthy food, rest and sound sleep are not optional

Lack of enough water > Stone/Gout formation


Regular fried foods > Heart disease > Stroke

Regular surgar drinks > Diabetes > Stroke

The less processed your diet, the better.


Slow juicing can prevent vegetables from rapid oxidation.

If not enough nutrient is eaten daily, the body will decay and take required nutrients from its bone marrow.

If you’re exhausted or undernourished you’ll find your life progress coming to a grinding halt.


Synthetic fertilizers usage and premature picking practices can cause damage to your organs and tissues and impair the body’s ability to function and repair itself.

Higher intakes of white rice may result in a higher risk of type 2 diabetes.

Eating large amounts of white rice creates metabolic syndrome.


Food addictives, Propyl gallate, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) found in a wide range of products — for example, snack crackers, noodles, and fast and frozen foods.

Food addictives increase the incidence of tumors,liver enlargement, neurotoxic effects, convulsions, and paralysis in laboratory animals.


Milk and other dairy products are the top sources of artery-clogging saturated fat.

Too little fat can also result in gallstone formation

Too little water intake can damage liver.


Diets of less than 800 calories can lead heart arrhythmias, which could lead to death.

Consuming tainted seafoods which contain antibiotics - nitrofurans and chloramphenicol can lead to serious health issues. Experts believe that residues from these two antibiotics are carcinogenic https://bit.ly/2HazWhu


In the case of chloramphenicol, it also leads to a rare but serious side effect of bone marrow failure, leading to the lack of production in red and white blood cells and platelets.

Wild shrimp are pink or pale and vary in sizes. Farmed ones are grey and are usually the same size.

The chicken and eggs you consume could be making you resistant to antibiotics, says a new study done in India by US-based Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP).


Indiscriminate prescription and use of antibiotics and other medicines has also led to concerns about drug resistance in pathogens that cause infectious diseases like tuberculosis, malaria, urinary tract infection and even HIV.

If you don’t eat enough protein, you might survive but suffer from lethargy, weakness, muscle wasting, impaired healing, accelerated aging, bone loss, hair loss, heart problems, mood disorders, a weakened immune system..etc

Calories eaten vs Calorie burnt | If we don't do rigorous exercise, there's no way our body can burn excess calories. They gotta be kept as fat. In our grandparents days, they're blue workers. Their fat got burned all days.


If you eat canned food or instant meal continuously, you will gain weight despite eating a little. That's due to preservatives, chemicals and unhealthy fat.

Since we work more efforts on brain than other parts of body, it makes sense to eat food more beneficial to brain health.

Getting more fiber — can help with weight loss, blood pressure, digestive bowel health, healthy gut bacteria - https://bit.ly/3cgq8Rz


Insoluble fiber doesn’t dissolve in water and plays a different role in digestion. It adds bulk to our stool and passes through the system more quickly. Basically, it helps keep the pipes working regularly and prevents constipation.

Fermentable fiber can come from both categories, though they’re more often soluble fibers. Fermented fibers help increase the healthy bacteria in the colon.

Eat whole fruits like pears and apples instead of drinking fruit juices.


Swap in whole grain varieties instead of white rice, bread, and regular pasta.

In our fast-paced, immediate gratification culture, eating out is a frequent experience for many. Restaurant food is generally served in large portions and typically high in calories and fat, thus contributing to weight gain. 

The amount of carbohydrates in a meal is the key to losing weight and keeping it off because, unfortunately, the wrong types and too many carbs make you gain weight.


Late dinner (later than 8 pm) causes weight gain as we sleep by 12-2 and there is not so many hours to burn dinner calorie intake.

Different foods are acidic or alkaline in nature, and contain different levels of acidity or alkalinity levels. For example, meat is acidic in nature, while fruits and vegetables are alkaline.


A diet rich in meat and low in vegetables will result in an acidic body environment.

American College of Sports Medicine suggest consuming between 1.2 and 2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight for the best performance and health.

When hot products are placed in food containers, chemicals from the box can leach into the food and, in turn, our bodies.

Styrofoam, a known carcinogen, is used for making coffee cups, plates, and to-go boxes.


The safest containers are brown or white paper boxes composed of 100% recycled paperboard, which have a seal to indicate they are compostable.

Takeout plastic food containers contain phthalates, a common class of chemical used to make plastic malleable, contributing to all types of health problems.

Carbohydrates provide 4 calories per gram, protein provides 4 calories per gram, and fat provides 9 calories per gram

Protein is important for immune function, cell regrowth and muscle building.

Lentils haves antinutrient factors, such as trypsin inhibitors and a relatively high phytate content. Trypsin is an enzyme involved in digestion, and phytates reduce the bioavailability of dietary minerals.

The phytates can be reduced by prolonged soaking and fermentation or sprouting.


Regular consumption of MSG-laden foods is linked to weight gain, as well as many other health issues. A study of 750 Chinese men and women found that those who used the most MSG in their cooking were nearly three times more likely to be overweight

Emulsifiers are chemicals that help blend together ingredients that would not naturally mix well together (e.g. oil and water), explains NYC-based registered nurse Rebecca Lee.

Emulsifiers also make food look appealing, keep it fresh, and prevent molding. That may all sound harmless, but a study on mice found that consumption of these chemicals may do a number on your body by altering gut bacteria, triggering inflammation and in

Common emulsifiers include: lecithins, mono- and di-glycerides, polyglycerol ester, sorbitan ester, PG ester, and sugar ester.

Although oats are generally considered as relatively resistant to grain pests, they are not resistant to mycotoxins. Fusarium toxins T-2 and HT-2 are most common in oats, followed by deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone (ZEA).

Mycotoxins are natural metabolites of molds which may contaminate a variety of foodstuffs, particularly cereals.


Leaving food out overnight is a bad idea, especially rolled oats

The oats supply healthy complex carbs and topping it with fruit will get you the produce (and more carbs), but you'll want to incorporate protein to round things out. (One cup of cooked oatmeal made with water has 5 g of protein, per the USDA.)

Yeast extract contains glutamates, which are forms of an amino acid that are found naturally in many foods.commonly known as monosodium glutamate (MSG)


Secretions of bile and digestive enzymes are drastically reduced later in the afternoon, and especially after 6PM.

Undigested foods are always a cause of congestion, first in the intestinal tract, and then in the lymph and blood.

Having a constant urge to eat between meals suggests a major imbalance of the digestive and metabolic functions.


By regularly eating too much food or eating food more frequently than the body needs to nourish and sustain itself, the digestive juices (including bile) become increasingly depleted.

Asians generally have a low protein but fat-rich diet rarely, and rarely have cholesterol stones in their gallbladders. On the other hand, cholesterol stones in the gallbladder are very common among Americans whose diet is rich in flesh and milk protein.

Fulvic trace minerals contain nutrients that promote gut health, like: electrolytes, fatty acids and silica.


Fulvic trace minerals help nourish the digestive tract and also boost the ability of “good bacteria” to repopulate and form a healthy “microbiome” environment.

It is now clear that mass produced foods like fruits and vegetables show a direct correlation between the produce’s fulvic content and the quality of the soil they are grown in.

Fulvic trace minerals have naturally occurring electrolytes to hydrate cells and replenish lost minerals from extreme sports.


Fulvic trace minerals dispose of heavy metals from air pollution, and exposure to household products.




Diet:Waters



Birch water - Birch sap, birch water or birch juice is the sap directly tapped from birch trees, Betula pubescens, Betula pendula, Betula lenta, Betula papyrifera, and Betula fontinalis.

Coconut water


Spring water - the result of an aquifer being filled to the point that the water overflows onto the land surface. They range in size from intermittent seeps, which flow only after much rain, to huge pools flowing hundreds of millions of gallons daily.

Hydrogen water - adding hydrogen gas to the water increases its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It's been touted for its ability to increase energy, slow down the aging process, and improve muscle recovery after a workout.

Oxygenated water - functional water product that has oxygen added to it during the canning or bottling process.


Distilled water - water that has been boiled into vapor and condensed back into liquid in a separate container. Impurities in the original water that do not boil below or near the boiling point of water remain in the original container.

Boiled water - Boiling is the surest method to kill disease-causing organisms, including viruses, bacteria, and parasites.

Alkaline water - lkaline water has a higher pH level than normal tap water and contains alkaline minerals and negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP).


Fulvic trace mineral Black water - https://3iblackwater.com.au/ - Fulvic acid is group of chemicals formed when plants and animals break down. It is found in the humus (organic matter) part of soil and peat, and is also found in streams and lakes.

Water filtered by Reverse Osmosis (RO) - a water treatment process that removes contaminants from water by using pressure to force water molecules through a semipermeable membrane.





Diet: Oils



Avoid unhealthy pork,beef fats and hydrogenated oils

Hydrogenation is used to turn healthy oils into solids and to prevent them from becoming rancid.

Avoid all foods with partially hydrogenated vegetable oils and trans fat.


When vegetable oil is heated in the presence of hydrogen and a heavy-metal catalyst such as palladium, hydrogen atoms are added to the carbon chain. This turns oils into solids.

Consume only healthy oils and fats.

Oil in restaurants are chemically processed and never decayed.


Food that’s fried, baked, or microwaved using unhealthy oils will oxidize and create an inflammatory response in the body.

Minimize your consumption of highly refined cooking oils, like soybean, canola, ‘vegetable oil.’





Diet: Sugar



Limit consumption of foods known to have a pro-inflammatory effects - refined carbohydrates like white bread, white rice and pastries; sugar-sweetened beverages; deep-fried foods; and red meat and processed meats;

Hidden sugars in majority of meals: Yogurt,Sauce,Ketchup,Dressing,Juice,Sports Drinks,Chocolate Milk,Granola,Flavored Coffees,Iced Tea,Protein Bars,Vitaminwater,Cereal Bars,Canned Fruit,Canned Beans,Bottled Smoothies,Breakfast Cereal

Sugar → kidney disease risk: Having consistently high blood sugar levels can cause damage to the delicate blood vessels


Sugar → developing gout: Gout is an inflammatory condition characterized by pain in the joints.

Sugar → increases your uric acid levels — High uric acid levels are a risk factor for heart and kidney disease.

Avoid high sugar fruits: mango, durian


The main dietary sources of refined carbs are white flour, white bread, white rice, pastries, sodas, snacks, pasta, sweets, breakfast cereals and added sugars. They are also added to all sorts of processed foods. 

Reduce ur consumption of added sugars, refined grains. Moderate your protein intake Increase your consumption of natural fat, fibre and vinegar.

Soluble fiber dissolves in water and slows down digestion. It can help lower the body’s cholesterol and blood sugar levels.


Fast food contains a large amount of sugar, fats and carbs and less minerals and vitamins. This means that you are taking in large amount of unhealthy calories in the shape of fast food which leads to weight gain and ultimately obesity.

Restrict or avoid refined carbohydrates and sugars, and limit your intake of all processed carbohydrates.

Even tea leaves egg include sugar https://youtu.be/PhMfMQOncqA

Soups (korea kimchi, thai tom yams) have sugar and cause you to weight gain.

Eating grain or any crackers can create weight gain even if sugar free due to processed nature.





Diet:Cheese



Cheese can be high in sodium and/or fat, keep an eye on your intake.

Mozzarella - contains bacteria that act as probiotics, including strains of Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus fermentum


Blue Cheese - used mold to create blue cheese that provides distinctive odor and bold, tangy flavor; high in calcium, a nutrient necessary for optimal bone health

Feta - provides conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is associated with reduced body fat and improved body composition

Cottage Cheese - increase feelings of fullness and help decrease overall calorie intake, which in turn may lead to weight loss


Ricotta - made with Whey; easily absorbed and may promote muscle growth, help lower blood pressure, and reduce high cholesterol level

Parmesan - rich in both calcium and phosphorus — nutrients that play a role in bone formation — it may promote bone health

Swiss - hosts various compounds that reduce angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE),a substance that narrows your blood vessels.


Cheddar - In addition to being rich in protein and calcium, cheddar is a good source of vitamin K — especially vitamin K2

Goat cheese - has more medium-chain fatty acids than cow’s milk. These types of fat are rapidly absorbed in your body and less likely to be stored as fat
