Long-Term Effects of an Emotionally Abusive Relationship

Emotional abuse is often the hardest type of abuse to recognize and overcome because its scars aren’t visible to the naked eye. Unlike physical and sexual abuse, emotional abuse doesn’t leave behind scars or other physical evidence. The long-term effects of this type of abuse in a relationship can be long-lasting and devastating and can even affect the abused person for the rest of his or her life, especially if the abuse is never addressed with a health professional.


Confidence

According to the May 2005 edition of the “Journal of Emotional Abuse,” one of the most common and frequent psychological effects of emotional abuse is damaged self-confidence and self-worth. Abusers frequently focus in on areas where the abused person already has self-esteem issues such as physical appearance, weight, intelligence, and so forth. This only perpetuates the abused person’s issues with self-confidence.
Trust
According to the effect of emotional abuse is the inability to trust people close to you. When a relationship enters a stage of emotional abuse, the abused person naturally loses trust in the abuser. These issues of trust can spill over into other relationships, even close ones. The abused person often feels that if someone that close can break her trust, she is not safe with anyone.
Denial
One of the issues is that although children often hang onto the experiences and effects of emotional abuse in their childhood, adults who are emotionally abused often go into a state of denial–both about the circumstances surrounding their abuse and the effects the abuse has had on their self-esteem and other psychological factors. Many people may deny that abuse is even possible when it is not physical in nature.
Many women choose to stay in emotionally abusive relationships. They are in denial of how bad the problem really is and what effect it is having on their lives.
Stress and Physical Effects
The effects aren’t the only ones felt by the victims of emotional abuse. Dealing with emotional abuse over a long time can cause extreme stress, which can often manifest itself with headaches, back pain, neck pain and even pain in the extremities.

The Way You Sleep Can Seriously Affect Your Health

Everyone has their favorite position to sleep in. Whether it’s on your back or your belly, we all look for comfort while sleeping. But did you know that the way you sleep could actually be harming your health? Here are some tips and tricks to sleep in your favorite position and promote whole-body health.

Surprising Medical Advice

Some doctors claim that the position you like best and find the most comfortable might be causing the most problems for your health. They say that there are small adjustments you can make so that your favorite sleeping position isn’t compromised. Specialists have found the best way to sleep on your back, belly, and side.

The Side Sleepers

 

 

Scientists have found that fluid flows through our body and gets rid of toxins better if you sleep on your side. It could even reduce the chance of getting Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. In order to make this position healthy and comfortable, it is important to add a pillow between your legs. This will reduce pressure on your joints and allow better circulation.

The Back Sleepers

Doctors say this is the best position to sleep in if you have joint or spine problems. It also helps prevent heartburn and wrinkles. If this is your position of choice, add a small pillow under your neck to support your spine. Also, put a flat pillow under your knees to support your legs. This will help align your body and prevent any sinus issues.

The Stomach Sleepers

Japanese researchers have found that those who sleep face down have reduced snoring and improved blood pressure and digestion. The best way to sleep in this position is to place a small pillow under your pelvis to reduce pressure on your lower back. You also want to limit the amount of bending in your legs and spine.

The Fetal Sleepers

For those of you who sleep in the fetal position, you are limiting your diaphragmatic breathing and reducing snoring. But, you may be negatively affecting your back. Make sure you are straightening your back and keeping your chest open. Place one pillowunder your elbow and another between your legs. This will help align your spine and neck, but also allow easier breathing.

5 ESSENTIAL SUPPLEMENTS YOU SHOULD BE TAKING DAILY

5 ESSENTIAL SUPPLEMENTS YOU SHOULD BE TAKING DAILY

We all know that a good diet and regular exercise is crucial to a healthy lifestyle. However, there’s one other thing that should be a consistent part of your regimen aside from the two: vitamins!
Vitamins and minerals can provide essential nutrients for you when lacking in your diet — whether you don’t consume enough fish or fruit. Here are five supplements we recommend including in your daily regimen:
Multivitamins. These are a great way to get an adequate dose of all those important nutritional facets you might not be getting in your day-to-day diet. Multivitamins are a must for those who don’t meet the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
Probiotics. Ever feel bloated? Well, probiotics can help with that! They help with your gut and encourage proper digestion to rid you of any bloat before you even get it. Probiotics also boost the immune system.
Vitamin D. This is one vitamin people forget about far too often. If you’re not exposed to the sun on a daily basis, you’re likely missing out on vitamin D. For those of us that live in cold-weather climates, this supplement is even more of a must. Vitamin D also helps regulate calcium and phosphorous absorption to help maintain healthy bones and teeth.
Magnesium. This does a number of things for our bodies and our health, from increasing energy to calming anxiety. It helps with digestion and constipation, helps prevent osteoporosis, and relieves muscle aches and spasms.
Omega-3s. This is another must, especially if you don’t consume enough fish or nuts. We especially love that omega-3s boost brain health and power. They improve risk factors for heart disease, fight inflammation and autoimmune diseases, and even prevent age-related mental decline and Alzheimer’s.
As always, consult a doctor or nutritionist before incorporating any supplements into your diet.

Kick the Sugar By Replacing 5 Foods

Eating too much sugar over time has been linked to excess weight, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers – and let’s not forget cavities.
If you are looking to reduce or eliminate sugar from your diet, it’s inadvisable to go cold turkey. Instead, pay close attention to what you are currently eating. Are there any hidden sugars which you could easily get rid of? Remember that sugar takes many forms, such as syrups, honey, and agave.
For example, so-called savory sauces, such as ready-made pasta sauce, often contain sugar. You can quickly and easily make your own from olive oil, garlic, onion, tomato, and herbs.
Added sugar refers to any which has been added by whoever made the food, be it the manufacturer or yourself. The natural sugars in plain milk, yogurt, fruit and vegetables are not considered as added sugars and come naturally housed with nutrients and fiber.
Here are 5 dietary swaps you can make that will help you cut back your sugar intake:

1. Mashed Banana

Bananas contain a wealth of nutrients while also delivering a nice hit of sweetness. Combine mashed bananas with a dash of cinnamon to use instead of sugar-filled jam on your toast. Freeze pureed bananas in popsicle molds as an alternative to ice-cream.

2. Applesauce

Make your own applesauce by peeling and coring 900g of apples. Put them in a saucepan with two teaspoons of lemon juice and two tablespoons of water. On a low heat cook them until very soft, about 15 minutes. One cup of applesauce contains about 100 calories, while the same volume of sugar has over 700 calories.
You can use the applesauce in many baking recipes in a 1:1 ratio, but you’ll also need to lessen the amount of liquid used in the recipe. Typically, you can use quarter of a cup less liquid, which could save on a lot of calories from fat, too.

3. Stevia

People in South America have been using Stevia as a sweetener, a plant native to Paraguay, for many years. Stevia is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar, but almost calorie-free. Unlike many other sweeteners, it is not a chemical cocktail and was deemed safe for human consumption by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
It is available in liquid or powdered form. Read the label to see how much you need in exchange for sugar. If you can’t give up the taste of sweet tea or coffee, Stevia is a great solution.

4. Full-fat, Natural ProductsWhen the low-fat craze was at it’s all time high, 
manufacturers removed fat from food, but often 
replaced it with other things so that it still tasted 
good. Look carefully at the ingredient lists of 
low-fat yogurts and low-fat nut butters. The 
chances are there are things that you’ve never heard of. Make your own fruit yogurt by 
simply blending chopped fruit with natural yogurt. You’ll get far more taste without 
additives or sugar.

5. Cacao Nibs Instead of Chocolate

Cacao nibs are roasted slices of cocoa beans. Consider them chocolate in its purest form. A handful of nibs can curb a craving, while delivering antioxidants, magnesium, fiber and iron.
With a little creativity, it’s possible to reduce the amount of sugar in your diet and enjoy eating more real, unprocessed food. Make a plan to see which sugary foods you can substitute and enjoy healthy changes for you and your family.

Why You Shouldn’t Eat Pre-Packaged Food

Many dieters buy pre-packaged low-calorie meals and other prepared packaged foods labeled with terms like “low-fat,” “low-carb,” and “lite.” But do those labels make the food good for you? Just because it says “diet” doesn’t mean much. Find out the four main reasons pre-packaged food is not good for you.

1. Pre-packaged food is not real food.

Your body was created to operate off of real food, not food that simulates real food. The food industry has become a master deceiver at tricking the public about what is food and what is not.
Many people think that boxed cereal is real food. It’s not. It may start with a real food, such as a grain. But then with all the added sugar, chemicals, preservatives, and synthetic vitamins and minerals — boxed cereal becomes something that won’t even sustain life and generations for a rat in the lab.
Many people think that TV dinners are real food. These are not real food, either. Neither are candies, mashed potatoes from a box, chips, and many types of cookies. Real food is food that hasn’t been tampered with.
If you don’t ever give your car the fuel it needs, the car won’t take you anywhere. The same thing is true about pre-packaged food. After a few decades on fake food, like pre-packaged foods, you’ll end up feeling like you have run out of gas.

2. Pre-packaged food most likely has been heated to high temperatures and is high in Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs).

Advanced Glycation Endproducts are 100 times worse than free radicals in the body. They clump up proteins in every organ, causing dysfunction. They age you rapidly. The more highly processed food is, the more AGEs the food contains. Pizza and hot dogs are two of the worst foods when it comes to AGEs content.

3. Pre-packaged food is often loaded with preservatives and chemicals.

Preservatives and chemicals are really only good for the food industry, not your body. Your body considers preservatives and chemicals to be foreign, and that means your systems will have to detoxify them.
Detoxification is done by the liver, colon, gall bladder, kidneys and skin. This means that some or all of these organs will be overburdened by the additional job of removing these chemicals and pesticides from the foods you eat.
There comes a point where the body can’t detoxify any more toxins because it’s overloaded. The CDC announced that our environment is 100 times more toxic than it was in our grandparents’ time. So we can’t escape the toxins. If you’re adding more toxins from the foods you eat, you’re going to reach the limit of how much your body can accumulate pretty quickly.
This is when you’ll start feeling miserable. You most likely will be constipated, have an odor coming from your skin from all the toxins, have headaches, skin breakouts, digestive upsets, insomnia, and a lot more unpleasant symptoms.

4. Pre-packaged food is dead.

There’s no healing vibration in pre-packaged food. Only real food holds a healing vibration, not fake food.
The highest vibrations on the planet are found in the essential oils of plants. However, these are not foods you can eat! You still need real food to nourish all your organs. Each real food carries a unique vibration that nourishes some of your organs.
If you stop eating pre-packaged foods, you’ll transform your life and your health.

The Vitaminwater Scam

I’ve long held that most bottled water is a scam either because it’s simply way overpriced or because it’s falsely and/or misleadingly advertised as being good for you thanks to some added ingredient gimmick its marketers came up with. In fact, I previously wrote Water: A scambuster report, which deals with the issues of cost, the amount of water you need to drink each day, and safety (as in which is safer, tap or bottled water?). So it came as no surprise to me, and with a resounding “here, here” when I learned that the Center for Science in the Public Interest  (CSPI) had sued the Coca-Cola company for “deceptive and unsubstantiated claims” on its vitaminwater line of beverages.  The vitaminwater products are made by a company Coke owns called “glacéau,” which, according to the Coca Cola website is never capitalized, even at the beginning of a sentence (and neither is vitaminwater, which is also written as one word – marketing, go figure).
Needless to say, the folks at Coke had some choice words of their own about the CSPI lawsuit: “This is a ridiculous and ludicrous lawsuit. glacéau vitaminwater is a great tasting, hydrating beverage with essential vitamins and water, with labels showing calorie content.” Even their response is misleading. Try to think of a beverage that isn’t “hydrating.” And while the products do contain “essential vitamins,” the implication is that they contain most, if not all of them, which is far from true. Each of the various vitaminwater flavors contains some percentage of some mixture of some vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and/or other ingredients. You’d have to study each label individually to figure out what’s what, which is essentially what this entire lawsuit is about.
The CSPI says that “Coke markets VitaminWater [sic] as a healthful alternative to soda by labeling its several flavors with such health buzz words as “defense,” “rescue,” “energy,” and “endurance.” The company makes a wide range of dramatic claims, including that its drinks variously reduce the risk of chronic disease, reduce the risk of eye disease, promote healthy joints, and support optimal immune function. While it is true that vitamins do play various roles in the human body, the statements on VitaminWater [sic] labels go far beyond even the loose, so-called “structure/function claims” allowed by the Food and Drug Administration and cross the line into outright fraud, according to CSPI.”
In other words, the CSPI is attacking the marketing hype on the products’ bottles and website, the words that most consumers will see and read first (if not only). Coke, in its defense, says that “Consumers can readily see the nutrition facts panels on every bottle of glacéau vitaminwater, which show what’s in our product and what’s not.” In other words the fine print, so to speak – it’s not really that small, but how many people carefully and fully read the nutrition facts panels on the back compared to all those who read the promotional claims on the front?
What CSPI wants you to know is that vitaminwater contains a lot of sugar, precious little real fruit juice and a hodge-podge of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that you’d be better off consuming either through your normal diet or by taking a comprehensive daily multivitamin product. “My advice to consumers is to get your vitamins from real food,” said CSPI executive director Michael F. Jacobson. “If you have reason to believe you have a shortcoming of one vitamin or another, perhaps take an inexpensive supplement. But don’t seek out your vitamins in sugary soft drinks like Coke’s VitaminWater [sic].”
 
Speaking of sugar, you might be interested to know that each eight ounce serving of vitaminwater contains 13 grams of sugar and provides 50 calories. Moreover, since each bottle is 20 ounces, that’s more like 32.5 grams of sugar and 125 calories. For comparison, eight ounces of classic Coke contain 27 grams of sugar, which provide 97 calories, so ounce for ounce vitaminwater’s about half as sugary as classic Coke. And according to CSPI nutritionists, “the 33 grams of sugar in each bottle of VitaminWater [sic] do more to promote obesity, diabetes, and other health problems than the vitamins in the drinks do to perform the advertised benefits listed on the bottles.”
 
Another thing the CSPI wants you to know is that even though vitaminwater products look for all the world as though they are juice drinks, “VitaminWater [sic] contains between zero and one percent juice, despite the full names of the drinks, which include “endurance peach mango” and “focus kiwi strawberry,” and “xxx blueberry pomegranate acai,” among others. A press release for the “xxx” drink claims its antioxidants makes the drinker “last longer” in some unspecified way; in any event, it has no blueberry, pomegranate, or acai juice, nor do the others have any cranberry, grapefruit, dragon fruit, peach, mango, kiwi, or strawberry juice.”
 
Since Coke can’t deny that its vitaminwater products contain a lot of sugar, no juice and an incomplete smattering of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, they came up with this brilliant counterargument: “Filing a lawsuit is an opportunistic PR stunt. This is not about protecting the public interest. This is about grandstanding at a time when CSPI is receiving very little attention. There is no surprise that one week before the inauguration of the U.S. President, with the flurry of activity in Washington, D.C., that CSPI has chosen today to try to bring attention to themselves.” Huh? The CSPI is calling attention to itself in the midst of the activity surrounding the presidential inauguration? And that’s no surprise to Coca-Cola? No wonder they believe that vitaminwater is good for you: “Put simply, glacéau vitaminwater is a great complement to our often less-than-perfect diet with each of the different glacéau vitaminwater varieties providing a convenient, great-tasting way to get more of some of the vitamins and hydration we all need each day.”
 
Here’s another way to get “more of some of the vitamins and hydration we all need each day,” eat a balanced diet and take a complete multivitamin and mineral tablet and wash it down with a glass of tap water. If you buy generic multivitamins in large containers each tablet only costs you a few pennies and provides far more than any bottle of vitaminwater. You’ll save at least a dollar on the vitamins and the free glass of water will save you 125 calories for every bottle of vitaminwater you leave on the shelf. The choice is yours.

Drinking Soda…So You Want to Stop?

The reasons to stop drinking soda are abundant. Whether you want to cut down on empty calories and added sugars, consume less artificial sweeteners, wean off of caffeine, or even save money, ditching soda is a great place to start.
I actually used to be a big soda drinker–the diet type in particular. Something about it being calorie-free gave me permission to drink it with reckless abandon–so I did. At one point, I consumed more soda than water throughout the course of the day.
Back in 2014 I decided I wanted to rid myself of a dependence on artificial sweeteners, so naturally I started with soda. Over the course of about a year I went from drinking 2-3 sodas per day to 2 to 3 per month. I still very much enjoy a cola with my cheeseburger and french fries, but now that I drink it so much less frequently, I have no problem treating myself to the real deal.
As a former soda-drinker myself, I thought I’d share some tips and tricks I found helpful along the way for those of you who also want to get off the sweet stuff:
1. Be okay with scaling back slowly. If you drink 3+ sodas a day, switching to tap water cold turkey will most likely make every sip feel like a punishment… not to mention induce some serious caffeine withdrawal headaches. I bet you can rather painlessly replace 3 sodas per week with tap or sparkling water, though. Heck, maybe even 1 per day! Whatever the number, make it reasonable. Soda has not, and will not kill you over the next few weeks or months while you gradually get off of it. Over time, you’ll miss those first few sodas less and less and eventually you’ll be ready to cut out one or two more.
2. Get on a soda schedule. Keeping #1 in mind, jot down a schedule for weaning your soda consumption. By writing a plan, you’re thinking through and committing to a reasonable approach to drinking less. For example, if you normally drink 3 sodas per day, cut down to 2 per day for an entire month, and then 1 per day the month after. From there, you can gradually cut down even further. Allow yourself 5 per week for the 3rd month, 4 per week for the 4th month, and so on.
3. Explore tasty alternatives. Once you start cutting out soda, you’re going to want to replace it with other fluids so you don’t get dehydrated. When I first started cutting down on soda, I really missed the carbonation + flavor combo. Bored with tap water, I began exploring the wonders of sparkling water. Most of the time the carbonation alone did the trick–but when I craved a sweeter beverage, I found just a splash of juice worked wonders. 1-2 ounces of cranberry, orange or any other 100% fruit juice blend can make all the difference. Another favorite soda alternative is flavored water. Adding some cucumber slices, berries, citrus fruit or fresh mint to a pitcher of water gives it a refreshing essence of flavor.
4. Have alternatives handy. Once you find a few suitable soda alternatives, make sure they’re within reach when you get thirsty. If you just love the tingle of carbonation on your tongue,  keep your cabinets stocked with club soda, or invest in a Soda Stream or one of these more classic soda carbonators and make it yourself at home. If you like flavored water, slice up a bunch of oranges, cucumbers or rinse off some berries at the beginning of the week and make a fresh pitcher every morning. Fill up a water bottle before heading out to run those afternoon errands. If you’re prepared, when thirst strikes you’ll have one less excuse to grab for a soda. Oh, and if you’re prone to caffeine headaches, have an an anti-inflammatory on hand, or a bag of green or black tea to help ease those withdrawal pains.
5. Adopt a no soda policy. When I first decided I wanted to stop drinking soda, the first thing I did to start scaling back was adopt a “No Soda at Home” policy. It was highly effective. Seriously, if it’s not in your house you can’t drink it! This one change helped kickstart my journey to cut back. Here are some other “No Soda” policy ideas:
No Soda…
  • At work
  • On campus
  • On road trips
  • Before 5pm
  • At restaurants
  • At the movies
  • As mixers in alcoholic drinks
Try choosing one to start, and then adopt more as you feel ready.
6. Break the routine…by substituting a new one. For me, soda drinking, much like my morning cup of coffee, was a ritual. I found my daily walk to the soda machine was just as much an excuse to escape the office and chat with a co-worker as it was about getting a cold drink. Luckily I was able to convince my colleague to trade the soda for a few flights of stairs and a pit stop at the water fountain after. Think about when you habitually grab a soda and then figure out how you can change the scenario and make a healthier beverage choice. After just a few weeks your old, bad habit will likely be replaced with your healthier routine.
7. Make yourself accountable. If you’re the type of person who is motivated by accountability, telling your family, co-workers and friends that you’re giving up soda really works. When I decided to cut out soda, I told all of my girlfriends. It kept me honest when we were together, but I also found their support made a big difference. They still check up on me to this day to make sure I haven’t fallen back into my old soda habit! When you start cutting out soda, keep yourself accountable by telling people around you, and reap the benefits of having their support along the way.
8. Redefine the word “stop”. After reading the 2nd paragraph you might look at the title and think, “She still drinks soda though…” Why yes, on occasion I do! But I no longer consider myself a “soda drinker.” There’s a big difference! Just because you want to “stop drinking soda” doesn’t mean you can never enjoy one again. Maybe for you “stop” means getting down to 1 per week, say when you’re out to a nice dinner or as a lunchtime treat on Fridays. The best way to approach a long-lasting behavior change is by making it sustainable and avoiding those feelings of deprivation. If allowing yourself a soda on occasion makes you happy, by all means! In the end, it’s about making healthy habits the default and enjoying treats along the way.

The Healing Power of Turmeric

Medical researchers are swiftly moving toward a consensus that inflammation underpins most of the chronic diseases that plague us, everything from IBD and rheumatoid arthritis, to cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric may help prevent all of them. New studies even point to the effectiveness of turmeric in keeping type 2 diabetes at bay. Since turmeric is also inexpensive, has no toxicity, and makes food taste amazing, why shouldn’t we all be using it and reaping the benefits?

What makes Tumeric so healthy?

Most of the health benefits of turmeric derive from curcumin, the compound that also gives turmeric its bright orange color. Curcumin only constitutes a few percent of the weight of turmeric, but it is a nutritional powerhouse. Curcumin is a superb antioxidant and also possesses extraordinary anti-inflammatory powers. Because so many diseases are caused, or worsened, by inflammation, curcumin’s effect on restoring health and function can be profound.

What are some of the primary medicinal uses for Tumeric and Curcumin?

Curcumin has been studied for its effectiveness in:

  • Improving symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  • Preventing colon, pancreatic, and lung cancers
  • Lowering cholesterol and homocysteine levels
  • Protecting against Alzheimer’s disease (AD)
  • Blocking type 2 diabetes

Turmeric’s anticancerous properties

In some individuals with an inherited form of the disease, colon cancer begins with the proliferation of colorectal adenomas — polyps — that eventually become cancerous. When a moderate dose of curcumin is given to these individuals, the number of polyps is decreased, and disease progression slowed. The benefits are even greater when curcumin is combined with quercetin, a flavonoid found in onions.
Curcumin also has proven effective against prostate cancer. Epidemiological studies of prostate cancer worldwide reveal that it is rare in populations using more turmeric. In India, for example, prostate cancer is a very rare diagnosis. However, traditional Indian cooking not only uses curry, which has lots of turmeric, but also brassica (cruciferous) vegetables. The combination of the brassicas’ isothiocyanates and turmeric’s curcumin is lethal to prostate cancer cells and blocks the spread of established tumors.

Turmeric could help prevent heart disease

Curcumin blocks the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, an important step in atherosclerosis. Also, turmeric has significant vitamin B6, so it also helps reduce homocysteine while increasing HDL cholesterol. When you add it all up, that’s a lot of vital protection for your arteries.

Turmeric’s benefits for diabetes patients

Curcumin powerfully reduces blood glucose and helps cure insulin resistance, which in turn improves liver and pancreas health. Consequently, overall health, especially immune health, is also improved.

Turmeric as an herbal remedy for Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)

Once again, epidemiological evidence suggests that in populations using the most turmeric, AD is rare. Apparently, curcumin works in several ways to combat AD:
  • Inhibiting formation of amyloid plaque.
  • Blocking proteins that degrade the myelin sheath of nerve cells
  • Turning on genes that protect the brain from oxidative damage.
With so many good reasons to add turmeric to your recipes — not to mention that it’s delicious. Why wait? Vibrant health awaits you.
