Diet Supplements Warnings? The Truth Behind Herbal Cures – Epilepsy Disability – Bad Vegetables
Claims of herbal cures; are they true or just a scam?
Diet Supplements Warnings? According to many scientific studies, the effect of natural health products is questionable, and other Vegetation Removal Melbourne scientific studies claim they work, does alternative medicine really work to cure diseases? What about all the nutritional supplement hype, how do you know the truth? In an interview with my friend Josh it is possible to learn a lot from his experience.
Josh, I understand you have epilepsy and needed to find herbal cures and to change your diet. You say that your first step of changing your diet to cure epilepsy was to take things OUT of your diet before replacing it with supplementation. You mainly focus on removing sugar. Is that the only thing you were concerned about at first? How long until you started to remove other things for your diet as well?
Actually I started to take other things out of my diet very shortly after the sugar. Removing the sugar takes a lot of attention but it doesn’t take a lot of time. You can see major results very quickly and once you start to build a habit of reading labels then you catch on quickly and it becomes easy. It is actually like a foundation that other changes are added to, and those other changes can start right away; even within a few days or a couple of weeks depending on how often you go shopping.
That sounds pretty easy the way you describe it. What were some of the changes that you started to add to your sugar free foundation?
Actually, Herb, it may sound funny, but after sugars the vegetables where the next major change. Partially because of how sugars build up in fruits and veggies when they go through processing, but the main reason is because of the nutrients that are lost in certain processes.
The change was in the way the veggies are prepared. I eliminated vegetables that were boiled. Of course I shouldn’t stop eating vegetables because I needed as much of the nutrients that they had even if it was less than it should be. While boiling them a lot of the nutrients are diluted into the water. Instead I tried to replace them with only raw vegetables. If raw didn’t work then steaming is an option because it doesn’t dilute as many nutrients.
So steaming is a good alternative to boiled vegetables then?
Yes it is. Still it is not as good as raw as far as nutrients go because not all nutrients are protected through the steaming process. I found that if I ate some boiled vegetables then it would fill my stomach up really quickly. Steamed vegetables sometimes have the same effect. You can eat so much more when it is raw than when it is cooked.
Steaming often leaves some parts of the vegetables partially raw so it is like a compromise, but if you steam them for too long it is almost as bad as boiling them. The reality is that you will still need to add more nutrients to you diet by finding foods that have a higher concentration of the nutrients you need. Herbs will often have that higher concentration you need. You just need to research to find out the herbs that YOU need. Often you hear of warnings to not waste your money on useless herbal cures but they really do work because they are simply adding nutrients to your body that you need but are not getting enough of in your daily diet.
