How to Follow an Elimination Diet?

Elimination diets don’t exactly sound like the most fun thing in the world, but if you’re struggling with digestive issues, they can change your life. How do you get to the root of an issue if you can never pinpoint the cause? You don’t. That’s why millions of people live with illness unnecessarily every day. Because they never took the time to discover that perhaps their thyroid problems would improve by removing gluten from their diet. Or their IBS might get significantly better with a dairy-free diet.

It’s important to take responsibility for your own health if you want to feel good, and the elimination diet is the foundational journey you must take to decipher what works and what doesn’t.

How to do an Elimination Diet?

Certain foods trigger more negative reactions than others. The elimination diet gets rid of common food allergens for a month. Typically the foods you don’t eat for that time frame include…

  • Gluten
  • Grains
  • Dairy
  • Sugar and sweeteners (except stevia)
  • Processed foods
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Citrus fruits
  • Nightshade vegetables (tomato, peppers, and eggplant)
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Soy
  • Meat with nitrites

Ways to Help Children In Venezuela, Because They Are Dying Of Malnutrition

Our mission is to help all children of this world live happier lives and have a bright future, regardless of where they were born and the circumstances they were forced to live during their childhood. And even though we are a small organization, we put the main focus on taking action right now. Impacting the life of even a single child in need, it’s worth the effort. Mother Teresa said “If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one” If we all help change the life of one child each, we can change the world.

But, because nowadays, it is harder and harder for non-for-profit organizations to fund their activities, we have decided to create a for-profit business with the objective of providing financial stability to the members of our team, by doing something that matters. Because with part of the profits of our sales, we are financing this amazing philanthropic program called the U Care Program.

Today I wanted to share some of the faces of the children we are helping, in Caracas, Venezuela. And a little more about the mission of this project.

Too often we see on TV, newspapers and the Internet, news about children dying of malnutrition. To those of us who have children, it is hard not to wonder, that if for circumstances of life, my own child would be forced to live a reality like that. That’s why we created this program.

I wanted to do this post to be super clear about what we do and how we can help you too. I guess you have seen me promoting our products and programs on social media and many of you may be thinking if we are really making the donations or if it’s just another marketing strategy to sell. I’m here to give you my word, that this is a real philanthropic program financed by your purchases and making a real impact in real children.

The U Care Program – Help a Child in Need

The program is called “U Care program” and as I said before is funded with part of the profits from the sales of our Personalized Health Coaching programs and guides, affiliate program commissions and direct sales of Adriana Wellness’s products.

The U Care Program is a 100% philanthropic initiative.

Yes, we are a for-profit company, we sell products to have profits, which allow us to cover our expenses and grow as a company. But more than anything, we want to make a positive impact in this world.

We want to grow by selling products that we are sure will help you in a deep way: with your health and wellness. Because we know, and you know, that our health is the most precious asset we have.

What Exercise Has to do with Gut Health

Exercise isn’t all about the physical. It goes far beyond muscle tone and calories burned. Exercise affects your whole body, including your gut. Professional athletes show a much more diverse microbiome than their non-exercising counterparts of similar age and weight.

The Gut microbiome it’s affected but numerous factors, from the way we were born, our diet in infancy and adulthood, medications, age genetics, and many other factors. But there are many ways we can improve our gut health including probiotics and prebiotic which I’ve written in previous posts. And another important way is by exercising.

Recent studies suggest that exercise can increase the number of beneficial microbial species and improve the microflora diversity. All these effects are beneficial for the host, us, improving our health status.

They also determine that exercise is able to enrich the microflora diversity; to improve the type of bacteria that could potentially contribute to help us lose weight.

Moving your body helps stimulate the lymphatic system, the system that helps your body to remove toxins and maintain a healthy circulation. Other ways to stimulate the lymphatic system include massage and dry brushing, but exercise is highly effective and has other benefits like boosting mood and cardiovascular health.

Your Way to Healthy Nourishment

Soup certainly doesn’t sound like any special life-changing superfood. It’s soup, you’ve eaten it all your life. Yet soup has massive potential that often gets hidden behind nasty preservatives and less than ideal flavoring agents. The true beauty and nourishment happen with whole food ingredients and high-quality homemade bone broth. This is where the magic happens.

 

A daily soup made from local, seasonal ingredients and high-quality broth is better than any superfood or supplement out there. It’s a wholesome way to nourish your skin, immune system, joints, digestion, and gut health.

Homemade bone broth

 

Bone Broth is rich in natural gelatin which is anti-aging and great for rebuilding damaged intestinal lining. Making bone broth from scratch is as easy as throwing your leftover chicken carcass in a large pot of water and letting it simmer for 24 hours. This gets all the good stuff out of the bones and into the liquid.

Go to your local farmer’s market and get the freshest seasonal produce you can find. In the summer I love cooking fresh garlic, beets, and carrot in a homemade stock and blending with fresh dill. Served cold on a hot day with a drizzle of plain yogurt, this soup is refreshingly tangy and packed with nutrients.

 

In the Fall and Winter, soups made with root vegetables and hearty herbs like sage and rosemary are ideal. It’s all about sourcing local, pesticide-free vegetables for the most nutrient-dense soups. Nothing you can buy from the store compares to what you can make at home with relatively little effort.

3 Easy Steps to Greater Happiness

You deserve to be happy, but there are days when it’s easy to get sucked into negativity and despair. When nothing seems to go your way, when the craziness around you starts to influence your own thoughts, and hen you wish you were as awesome as so and so…

There are a few simple strategies that you can implement today to start increasing your levels of happiness. Every day is a new opportunity for growth and today you can choose to honor your right to wholehearted happiness.

 

  • Let Go of Perfection

When you expect perfection, you set yourself up for disappointment. Because nobody’s perfect, and thinking you need to be is just setting yourself up for failure. Or worse, for not even starting.

On the road of self-improvement, there will be potholes, cracks in the pavement and distractions on the sidelines. This is completely normal and natural. Judging yourself too harshly for not being perfect is a major happiness killer.

  • Eat More Fermented Foods and Probiotics

Fermented foods might not seem to have much to do with happiness from the outside but on the inside, they make a huge difference. By adding probiotic-rich foods like sauerkraut, kefir, kimchi, miso, yogurt and kombucha into your diet, you’ll strengthen your body’s ability to produce serotonin, the happy hormone.

Serotonin is produced in large amounts in the gut, but when our gut bacteria isn’t healthy, our body’s have a hard time producing serotonin and transporting it to our brains.

The gut is often referred to as the second brain and for good reason. A balanced probiotic rich gut makes it easy to produce hormones that flood the brain with positive feelings. Recent studies are even looking to probiotics as a way to treat depression and anxiety!

Our bodies are works of art. The human body has incredible mechanisms for taking care of itself. But it often needs a boost and right kind of environment, both of which come from our diet.

But, in reality, it is simply, and more importantly, a process of flushing toxins from our bodies that have built-up with the passage of time due to poor habits.

Weight loss often does occur, but the primary reason for a detox is to help your organs start working optimally, which requires more energy.

There are various methods that can be used for detoxing your body. You can take supplements or follow an exercise regimen, but the easiest and most natural way of detoxing your body is by adding foods to your diet that are naturally detoxifying.
