In The News
Science is gradually catching up with information from holistic medicine practitioners have been talking about for years. In fact, there has been years of research that refutes the idea a high carb diet will improve your health and weight loss efforts.
Researchers from Children’s Hospital and Research Center in Oakland California found that although the DASH diet would reduce blood pressure and low-density lipoproteins (bad cholesterol), a DASH diet that was higher in fat would also reduce triglycerides while maintaining the benefits of the original DASH diet.
According to Science Daily,
“Thirty-six adult participants completed all three diet periods. Blood pressure was reduced similarly in the DASH and HF-DASH diet compared to the Control diet. The HF-DASH diet significantly reduced triglycerides and large and medium sized very low-density lipoprotein particles in comparison with the DASH diet, and there was no significant difference in LDL-C response between these diets. Therefore the modified HF-DASH diet presents an effective alternative to the widely recommended DASH diet, with less stringent dietary fat constraints that may promote even broader implementation.”
Daily Health Tip
The DASH diet is often considered the healthiest diet to eat to reduce your blood pressure and your blood sugar. However, with the addition of healthy fats you get even more benefits and the added fat reduces your craving for sugar and carbohydrates.
Foods high in healthy fats include, avocado, coconut oil, raw nuts and seeds, flax seeds, meats which are organic, range-raised and grass-fed. Other foods with healthy fats include dark chocolate, chia seeds and raw eggs.

Fact Or Fiction?
Most large special interest groups have powerful lobbyists working for them. But, did you know where the term ‘lobbyist’ was first coined? You’ll be surprised how long it’s been used and where it got started.
President Grant enjoyed relaxing in the evenings after a full day in the office. He spent his time at the Willard Hotel near the White House and sit in the lobby to enjoy his after-dinner cigar. The people who wanted favors from the President would wait for him in the lobby, earning the name “lobbyists.”
Have a wonderful day!
