5 Nutrients To Help Overcome Addiction

Thursday, March 10th, 2022
Nutrients To Help Overcome Addiction

Over the years, I’ve been addicted to various substances. It was only natural for me to seek fast relief while my brain was malfunctioning and I was suffering from mental illness. Until I could find better, long-term, sustainable answers, I had to rely on substances outside my body – even if they weren’t beneficial for me. I set out to learn as much as I can about nutrients to help overcome addiction, and between research studies and feedback from recovering addicts, I attempted to put together this list to help others.

At the time, I honestly felt that I didn’t have any other options. And I’m sure there are a lot of other folks out there who are dealing with the same issue. You might feel as if you require something to help you get through the day. Then there’s something more to do to get to sleep at night.

It could be alcohol, cigarettes, cannabis, or more potent drugs like cocaine, heroin, or methamphetamines. Perhaps you’re using antidepressants or benzodiazepines on a prescription basis. You may have no idea how you would survive without them.

You can do it, and I’m here to tell you that you can.

The Relationship Between Exercise and Diabetes

Saturday, March 5th, 2022
exercise and diabetes

Many people with diabetes decide that they don’t have enough energy for their planned exercise at some point in the day. They lay on the couch, feel guilty, and decide that morning may be a better time to work out. When the next day comes around, the alarm goes off earlier, and they hit the snooze button multiple times until there is no time left to exercise. The motivation to get the exercise routine started and sustained is the problem. When you understand the relationship between exercise and diabetes, it becomes another incentive to add a full-body workout routine, or really any other type of exercise, to your lifestyle at least 3 days a week.

Here are the exercise benefits a diabetic needs to understand to get started using exercise to help manage diabetes.

How Much Water Should You Drink?

Monday, February 14th, 2022
Dr. John Berardi

Since the late 1990’s Dr. John Berardi has published 8 scientific abstracts; 15 scientific papers and textbook chapters; presented at nearly 50 scientific, exercise, and nutrition-related conferences; and published countless articles online.

His first articles at Testosterone Magazine so many years ago provided me with the basis for everything I knew about nutrition in my early years as a personal trainer. Now I will turn some of that knowledge over to you in the form of Nutrition Tips written by Dr. Berardi himself.

Today’s Topic – How Much Water You Should Drink

Water is important for maintaining proper health.

Drink Water

I have always advocated drinking at least a gallon of water a day, but then some media outlets over-hype the fact that drinking too much water can make you sick, so people sometimes dismiss the importance of drinking water. So whatever you believe, the all-important question must still be answered, how much water should you drink?

I think it all had to do with some radio contest to see who could drink the most water in the shortest amount of time. The fact is that you would have to drink many gallons of water in a short time frame to make yourself sick.

Let’s take a look at a few reasons why you should basically drink as much water as possible each day.
