你想要有健康的牙齿吗?

(原创于www.eliaus.com 博主:Elia    微信号:us20120514)


谁不想有一个美丽和健康的微笑? 大多数人羡慕模特儿和时尚的人,有着完美的牙齿。 不仅笑起来非常好看,而且健康的口腔对身体健康非常重要。 你可能会问为什么?


好吧,让我告诉你

Do you want to have healthy teeth?

Who doesn’t want to have a beautiful and healthy smile?  Most people envy models and fashionable people with perfect looking teeth.  Not only is a great smile great to have, but a healthy mouth is very essential to good health.  Why, you may ask. 

Well, let me show you.

有一个健康的口腔的好处


1)提高自信心
2)降低身体感染和炎症的风险
3)如果你有糖尿病,帮助控制你的血糖
4)食物味道更好
5)没有口臭

Benefits of having a healthy mouth

  1. Boosts your self confidence
  2. Reduces risk of infection and inflammation in your body
  3. Aids in controlling your blood sugar if you have diabetes
  4. Food tastes better
  5. No bad breath

对口腔非常重要的维生素和矿物质



•维生素D(帮助身体吸收牙齿的钙质)
•钙(加强牙齿和颚骨)
•钾(加强牙齿和颌骨,减少钙的损失)
•磷(加强牙齿和颚骨)
•维生素K(防止骨质分解)
•维生素A(加强口腔中的牙龈和组织,帮助您的口腔快速愈合)
•维生素C(加强口腔中的牙龈和组织,防止牙齿松动)

Essential Vitamins and Minerals for your mouth

  • Vitamin D (Helps body absorb calcium for your teeth)
  • Calcium (Strengthens teeth and Jaw)
  • Potassium (Strengthens teeth and Jaw and reduces calcium loss)
  • Phosphorus (Strengthens teeth and Jaw)
  • Vitamin K (Prevents bone break down)
  • Vitamin A (Strengthens gums and tissue in the mouth, helps your mouth heal quickly)
  • Vitamin C (Strengthens gums and tissue in the mouth, preventing teeth from loosening)

这些习惯会让你失去你的牙齿



•吸烟(除失去牙齿外,还可引起口腔癌,牙龈疾病和蛀牙)
•咀嚼烟草(口腔癌,牙龈疾病和蛀牙)
•没有习惯性刷牙
•没有习惯性用牙线清洁牙缝
•用你的牙齿作为工具(磨损你的牙齿,弄裂你的牙齿,崩掉你的牙齿)
•全天候啜饮咖啡(弄脏牙齿并增加蛀牙的风险)
•含糖食品
•碳酸饮料(矿泉水,苏打水)

Habits that can make you lose your teeth

  • Smoking (besides tooth loss it can also cause mouth cancer, gum disease, and cavities)
  • Chewing tobacco (mouth cancer, gum disease, and cavities)
  • Not brushing your teeth regularly
  • Not flossing your teeth regularly
  • Using your teeth as a tool (wear down your teeth, fracture your teeth, break off a piece of your tooth)
  • Sipping on coffee throughout the day (stain your teeth and increase the risk of cavities)
  • Sugary foods
  • Carbonated drinks (mineral water, soda)

这些习惯可以帮助你保住你的牙齿



•在牙医的指引下每年至少进行两次牙科检查和牙齿清洁
•习惯性刷牙(每天3次 - >吃饭前或饭后至少30分钟)
•每日使用牙线清洁牙缝
•服用专门针对口腔的益生菌
•如果您有疼痛((嘴巴,脸部,颈部肿胀),牙龈松动,牙龈出血,咀嚼或吞咽困难,口干燥,下颚疼痛,持续时间超过一周的口腔疼痛,请去看牙医)
•舌刮
•每3个月更换牙刷
•使用油拨法(椰子油最佳)

Habits that can help you keep your teeth

  • Dental exam and teeth cleaning at least twice yearly or more often if directed by your dentist
  • Brushing teeth regularly (3 times daily->before you eat or at least 30 minutes after you eat)
  • Flossing daily
  • Consume probiotics specifically for the mouth
  • Visit the dentist if you have pain ((swelling in your mouth, face, neck), puffy/bleeding gums, difficulty chewing or swallowing, dry mouth, jaw pain, mouth sore that lasts longer than a week)
  • Tongue scraping
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3 months
  • Oil pulling (Coconut Oil)

如何进行油拨


1)早上,在刷牙或喝任何东西之前
2)用1汤匙的椰子油(15ml),含在嘴里,牙齿之间,轻轻地漱口10至20分钟,以避免使口腔或下颚酸痛。
3)把油吐出垃圾中,因为你不想堵塞排水管,然后用温暖的盐水冲洗口腔。
4)刷牙


一般来说,初始效果需要一周的时间,持续一个多月或更长的时间可见显著效果。 油拔应每隔一天进行一次。 非常棒的事情是,它不会像一般的漱口水那样令口腔干燥。 椰子油有许多其他有益用途,我们将在以后的文章中讨论。


油拔有助于


•帮助抵抗蛀牙
•美白牙齿
•有助于避免牙齿空腔(减少导致牙齿空腔的细菌)
•加强牙龈和下颚
•减少口腔炎症
•有助于牙龈出血

How to oil pull

  1. Oil pull first thing in the morning before you brush your teeth or drink anything
  2. Swish gently to avoid a sore mouth or jaw with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil (15ml) in your mouth and between your teeth for 10 to 20 minutes.
  3. Spit out the oil in the trash as you don’t want to clog up the drain then rinse your mouth out with warm salty water.
  4. Brush your teeth.

Generally, it takes a week for initial effects and a month or more for long lasting effects. Oil pulling should be done every other day. A great thing is that it does not dry out your mouth like certain mouthwashes. Coconut oil has many other beneficial uses which we will discuss in future articles.

Oil pulling helps with

  • Help fight tooth decay
  • Whitens teeth
  • Helps avoid cavities (reduces bacteria that causes cavities)
  • Strengthens gums and jaw
  • Reduces inflammation in the mouth
  • Helps with bleeding gums

牙齿健康状况不佳会增加以下风险


1)肺炎等呼吸状况

“牙周病学杂志”发表的研究表明,口腔健康状况差可能会增加肺炎,急性支气管炎和慢性阻塞性肺疾病等呼吸道感染的风险,因为靠近口腔的上喉部的细菌可能被吸入肺部。坏细菌也可以通过血液进入肺部。

2)心血管疾病(心脏病发作,中风,动脉粥样硬化)
3)细菌性心内膜炎(感染心脏)
4)早产和低出生体重
5)勃起功能障碍
6)引起某些种类的癌症(肾,胰,血)
7)消化问题
8)严重的牙齿感染(一些口腔如果不治疗可以致死,因为危险的细菌蔓延到你的血液中导致全身感染)


所以,正如你所看到的,有一个健康的口腔意味着不仅仅是牙齿看起来好看和有着干净的牙齿而已。每天花费几分钟,真的可以改善你的健康。


那么,你的牙齿健康怎么样?

Poor dental health increases the risk of

  1. Pneumonia and other respiratory conditions

Research published in the Journal of Periodontology suggests that poor oral health may increase the risk of respiratory infections such as pneumonia, acute bronchitis, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease as bacteria from the upper throat which is close to the mouth can be inhaled into the lungs. Bad bacteria can also access the lungs via the blood.

2. Cardiovascular disease (heart attacks, strokes, atherosclerosis)

3. Bacterial endocarditis (Infection of the heart)

4. Preterm birth and low birth weight

5. Erectile Dysfunction

6. Developing certain kinds of cancers (kidney, pancreatic, blood)

7. Digestive problems

8. Serious dental infection (some if not treated can kill you as the dangerous bacteria spreads into your bloodstream causing a systemic infection)

So, as you can see having a healthy mouth can mean much more than having good looking and clean teeth. Just spending a few minutes every day can really improve your health.

So, how’s your dental health?

你有没有听说过幽门螺杆菌?/ Have you ever heard of the bacteria called H. pylori?

下一专题:你有没有听说过幽门螺杆菌?

(原创于www.eliaus.com 博主:elia, 微信号:us20120514)

幽门螺杆菌通常发现在世界三分之二的人口的胃部。这种细菌是大部分胃溃疡和小肠上部溃疡的原因。此外,幽门螺杆菌是胃癌的主要原因。不是要吓你,但胃癌是世界上第二大与癌症有关的死亡癌症,也是中国第三大癌症。

 

幽门螺杆菌感染的常见症状是什么?

• 口臭

•作呕

•腹胀

•食欲不振

•胃灼热

• 胃溃疡

•贫血

•腹部不适

•腹痛

•黑暗或焦粪便

Have you ever heard of the bacteria called H. pylori?

H. pylori is commonly found in the stomach of two thirds of the world’s population. This bacteria is responsible for most ulcers of the stomach and top part of the small intestine. Furthermore, H. pylori is a prime cause of gastric cancer.  Not to scare you, but gastric cancer is responsible for the second most cancer related deaths in the world and the third most common cancer in China.

What are some common symptoms of H. pylori infection?

  • Bad breath
  • Belching
  • Bloating
  • Deceased appetite
  • Heartburn
  • Peptic Ulcers
  • Anemia
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Abdominal pain
  • Dark or tarry stools

那么,我们是如何感染上幽门螺杆菌的?

一半以上的中国人在儿童时期就已经感染幽门螺杆菌。通常,它通过口对口接触传播(配偶,女朋友/男朋友,熟人)以及受污染的食物和水。所以,如果家里有一位成员感染了它,就会通过公用的,没有彻底洗干净的勺子,叉子,杯子,筷子传给你。另外,在餐厅吃饭时,如果餐具用品,盘子和杯子没有彻底洗干净,人们可以感染上它。同时,准备食物的人去完洗手间没有洗手就服务你的话,你也会感染上它。

 

当进行幽门螺杆菌治疗时,请确保同时治疗整个家庭,因为他们也可能感染细菌。如果你少治疗一个家庭成员,整个家庭可以再次感染。另外用热肥皂水清洗所有东西。

 

那么,治疗幽门螺杆菌感染是否会降低胃癌的机会?

在一项临床研究中,中国山东患有幽门螺杆菌细菌感染的人在15年前消失,显示胃癌的降低率几乎降低了40%。另外还有其他的胃癌危险因素,包括吸烟(所以要戒烟),慢性胃炎(胃炎),烟熏食品,腌制品或化学保存食物的饮食以及少吃或不吃水果和蔬菜。

 

So, how does one get H. pylori?

Over half the Chinese population gets H. pylori in childhood.  Typically, it is spread by mouth-to-mouth contact (spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, acquaintance) as well as from contaminated food and water.  So, a family member can have it and give it to you usually by sharing their spoon, fork, cup, chopsticks that has been poorly washed.  Additionally, one can get it when eating at a restaurant from poorly washed utensils, plates, and cups or someone who is infected with the bacteria didn’t wash their hands after going to the restroom then prepared or served your food.

When H. pylori is treated, make sure to treat the whole family at the same time as they may be also infected with the bacteria.  If you miss treating one family member, the whole family can get infected again.  Wash everything in hot soapy water.

So, does treating a H. pylori infection reduce your chances of gastric cancer?

In one clinical study, people from Shandong,  China who had their H. pylori bacterial infection eliminated 15 years earlier were shown to have an almost 40 percent reduced rate of gastric cancer.  There are also other risk factors for gastric cancer which include tobacco smoking (so stop smoking), chronic gastritis (inflammation of the stomach), diet high in smoked,  salted, or chemically preserved foods, and a diet low in fruits and vegetables.

如何对付幽门螺杆菌?

常规疗法

1)抗生素(有20%再次感染的机会,治疗可以导致摧毁大部分有益细菌导致真菌感染)

- 在服用抗生​​素时,请确保在治疗期间服用正确的益生菌以减少真菌感染的机会

 

自然 疗法

1)益生菌(用细菌灭菌,知道用哪些很重要)

2)某些绿茶(不是所有的绿茶都有效果)

3)大蒜(特别是生大蒜(不煮熟),彻底洗干净或轻轻煮熟)

4)西兰花

5)一些初采蜂蜜(麦卢卡蜂蜜)

6)欧米茄3

7)益生菌食品(来自A2母牛的有机原料乳,有机羊奶和有机牛奶的有机原料乳制品)

确保避免或减少

1)辣食物

2)腌制食品

3)用白面粉制成的食物

4)咖啡

5)苏打水

6)咖啡因丰富的食物,如巧克力和某些糖果

7)压力

 

How does one fight H. pylori?

Conventionally

  1. Antibiotics (have a 20% chance of getting the infection again and the treatment destroys most of your good bacteria leading to possible fungal infections)  

-Make sure when taking antibiotics you take the proper probiotics during treatment to reduce the chance of a fungal infection

Naturally

  1. Probiotics (Fight bacteria with bacteria. Important to know which ones.)
  2. Some Green tea (Not all green teas are as effective)
  3. Garlic (Especially raw (not cooked) and well cleaned or lightly cooked)
  4. Broccoli
  5. Some Raw Honey (Manuka honey)
  6. Omega 3
  7. Probiotic foods like (Organic raw dairy from A2 cows, organic raw dairy from goats and sheep, organic kefir)

Make sure to avoid or reduce

  1. Spicy Foods
  2. Pickled Foods
  3. Foods made with white flour
  4. Coffee
  5. Soda
  6. Caffeine rich foods like chocolate and certain candies
  7. Stress

如何降低再次获得幽门螺杆菌的风险?

1)如果你怀疑你可能感染了,到医生那里治疗

2)良好的卫生(洗手)

3)有一个干净的水源

4)避免不卫生的地方(不要吃街头小贩或者不可靠的餐厅的食物,甚至不要到不讲究卫生的邻居那边吃饭)

5)经常洗手(握手后,去洗手间,触摸不卫生的东西)

6)如果家里有一位成员感染了就整个家庭一起治疗,不管是传统治疗还是自然治疗

7)用自己的用具(碗,杯子,盘子,筷子,勺子,叉子,刀子)

8)不要吃随便煮的熟食或准备好的熟食。

因此,随着饮食和生活方式的改变,可以降低幽门螺杆菌感染并发症的风险。你有没有检查过?你准备好进行必要的改变吗?

你准备好减少胃癌的危险因素吗?

How does one reduce the risk of getting H. pylori again?

  1. If you suspect that you may be infected, get tested by the doctor
  2. Good hygiene (hand washing)
  3. Have a clean source of water
  4. Avoid unsanitary areas (Don’t eat food from street vendors or from shady restaurants or even your neighbor if he or she has poor hygiene)
  5. Wash your hands regularly (after shaking hands, going to the restroom, touching unsanitary things)
  6. If one member has it treat the whole family conventionally or naturally
  7. Use your own utensils (cup, plate, chopsticks, spoon, fork, knife)
  8. Do not eat poorly/prepared cooked food.

So, with a change in diet and lifestyle one can lower one’s risks of complications from a H. pylori infection.  Have you been tested?  Are you ready to make the necessary changes?  Are you ready to reduce your risk factors for stomach cancer?

由于维生素缺乏症,您是否患有贫血?/ Do you have anemia due to a vitamin deficiency?

 

Do you have anemia due to a vitamin deficiency?

Some signs and symptoms include:

  • Feeling confused
  • Poor memory
  • Irregular heartbeats
  • Chest pain
  • Brittle nails
  • Poor appetite (Infants/Children)
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Tingling feeling in your feet
  • Tingling feeling in your hands
  • Changes of personality
  • Feeling off balance
  • Pale skin
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Muscle weakness

由于维生素缺乏症,您是否患有贫血?
(原创于www.eliaus.com )
一些迹象和症状包括:


•感到困惑
•记忆力差
•不规则的心跳
•胸痛
•脆指甲
•食欲不振(婴儿/儿童)
•不明原因的体重减轻
•感觉脚下刺痛
•感觉手中刺痛
•个性的变化
•感觉失去平衡
•皮肤苍白
•头晕
•疲劳
•呼吸急促
•肌肉无力

So, most people may state that I have always been this way, but vitamin deficiencies occur slowly over time.  Frequently, so slowly most times that the person with the deficiency does not realize it at all.  Friends or loved ones are more likely to sense the changes than you are.  Have you ever heard a friend who hasn’t seen you in weeks state, “you seem like you have gained some weight” or “you look pale, are you ok?” 

When one does not have enough vitamins and minerals to produce enough red blood cells to bring life sustaining oxygen to your body, one is said to have anemia.  There are many causes of vitamin deficiency anemia which quite frequently cannot be attributed to just being “low in iron”.  Many different vitamins and minerals are required to form healthy bloods cells including iron.

Folate deficient anemia causes:

  • Poor diet/Non organic diet
  • Vegetarian/Vegan
  • Overcooking your food
  • Poor digestion/absorption -> The right and good quality probiotics, reduce inflammation in the digestive system
  • Consume Alcohol
  • Liver Disease
  • Prescription medications (medications for seizures, diabetes, and others)
  • Dialysis
  • Pregnancy -> Proper diet, Vitamins/Supplementation
  • Breastfeeding -> Proper diet, Vitamins/Supplementation
  • Cancer treatment

Vitamin B-12 deficient anemia

  • Poor diet/Non organic diet
  • Vegetarian/Vegan
  • Overcooking your food
  • Poor digestion/absorption -> The right and good quality probiotics, reduce inflammation in the digestive system
  • Overgrowth of bad bacteria in your digestive system -> The right and good quality probiotics, reduce inflammation in the digestive system
  • Tapeworm
  • Autoimmune diseases (in addition to thyroid, diabetes)
  • Pernicious anemia (lack of intrinsic factor) – B-12 injections from your medical doctor

Iron deficient anemia

  • Poor diet/Non organic diet
  • Vegetarian/Vegan
  • Overcooking your food
  • Pregnancy
  • Blood loss (Menstruation, ulcer, regular use of aspirin and related medications, regular bleeding hemorrhoids, colon polyp
  • Frequent blood donor
  • Infants/Children

Vitamin C deficient anemia

  • Poor diet/Non organic diet
  • Vegetarian/Vegan
  • Overcooking your food
  • Smoking
  • Poor digestion/absorption -> The right and good quality probiotics, reduce inflammation in the digestive system
  • Chronic illness

Foods that worsen anemia

  • Coffee
  • Soda
  • Bran
  • Conventional dairy (Non-organic)
  • Black Tea
  • Chocolate
  • Processed grains
  • Sugars
  • Sweeteners

The following above highlights the importance of having a good well balanced diet of fresh organic foods and if that is not possible to have at least a daily multivitamin to help fill in the gaps in your diet.  Additionally, some people may still need additional supplementation and with some conditions such as pernicious anemia medical intervention from a medical doctor (vitamin B 12 shots).  Having the proper form of these vitamins and minerals are important.  Otherwise, the body may not be able to absorb them properly causing one to still have the deficiency or causing harm to the body.  Therefore, if you supplement, always make sure to get the proper forms, quantities of vitamins and minerals.

所以,大多数人可能会说我一直都是这样,但维生素缺乏症随着时间的推移慢慢发生。通常情况下,大多数时候,缺乏的人根本没有意识到这一点。朋友或亲人比您更有可能感觉到变化。你有没有听说过在几个星期没有见过你的朋友,“你好像增重了(长膘了/发福了)”或者“你看起来很苍白,你还好吗?

当一个人没有足够的维生素和矿物质去生产足够的红细胞,这些携带氧气的红细胞不足以维持正常的生命,那么就是有贫血症。维生素缺乏性贫血有许多原因,很多时候不能被认为只是“低铁”。需要许多不同的维生素和矿物质来形成包括铁的健康血液细胞。


叶酸缺乏症导致:


•饮食不佳/无机饮食
素食/纯素食
•食物过度烹饪
•消化不良/吸收不良 - >正确和优质的益生菌,减少消化系统的炎症
•饮用酒精
•肝病
•处方药(突发疾病的药物,糖尿病等)
•透析
•怀孕 - >正确的饮食,维生素/补充
•母乳喂养 - >适当的饮食,维生素/补充
•癌症治疗


维生素B-12缺乏型贫血


•饮食不佳/无机饮食
素食/纯素食
•食物过度烹饪
•消化不良/吸收不良 - >正确和优质的益生菌,减少消化系统的炎症
•消化系统中不良细菌的过度生长 - >正确和优质的益生菌,减少消化系统的炎症
•绦虫
•自身免疫性疾病(包括甲状腺,糖尿病)
•恶性贫血(缺乏内在因素) - 让您的医生进行B-12注射

缺铁性贫血


•饮食不佳/无机饮食
素食/纯素食
•食物过度烹饪
•怀孕
•失血(月经,溃疡,经常使用阿司匹林及相关药物,定期出血痔疮,结肠息肉)
•频繁献血者
•婴儿/儿童

维生素C缺乏型贫血


•饮食不佳/无机饮食
素食/纯素食
•食物过度烹饪
•抽烟
•消化不良/吸收不良 - >正确和优质的益生菌,减少消化系统的炎症
•慢性病


导致贫血恶化的食物


•咖啡
•苏打
•糠
•传统乳制品(非有机)
•红茶
•巧克力
•加工谷物
•糖
•甜味剂


以上突出强调了新鲜的有机食品对于良好均衡饮食的重要性,如果实在无法获得,至少每日使用多种维生素来帮助填补饮食中的差距(需要咨询或者寻找有机食品,纯天然保健品或者纯天然维生素的请添加博主微信:us20120514)另外,有些人可能还需要额外的补充,还有一些特殊情况,需要通过医生的医疗干预,比如恶性贫血(注射维生素B 12)。正确使用维生素和矿物质是非常重要的。否则,身体可能无法正确吸收它们,造成身体依旧缺乏维生素或造成伤害。因此,如果您需要补充,请始终确保获得正确的方式,正确的数量的维生素和矿物质。(执笔者背景:美国高级医药师高级顾问。美国本土白人。持美国医师执照。译者为www.eliaus.com 的博主Elia,两个孩子的妈妈,也是执笔者的妻子。)

太忙碌?你真的关注你和家人的健康吗 ?


 

太忙碌?

你真的关注你和家人的健康吗?

(原创于:www.eliaus.com,博主微信号:us20120514)  

 

            随着忙碌的现代生活节奏的到来,我们都承受着高强度的压力,吃任何我们可以随手得来的食物。这些被我们吃进腹中的,包括许多被污染的食物,水,空气和现代医学药物。由于这个原因,今天许多人的健康状况非常不佳,大量的医疗问题是以前从未听闻的。许多人选择了他们的习惯路线,希望现代医学能够帮助他们解决疾病。即使现代医学已经空前的丰富,然而,哮喘,心脏病,中风,糖尿病,肥胖,消化问题,过敏症,失眠,男性问题,女性问题,肝脏问题,自身免疫性疾病甚至癌症的发生率均有爆炸式增加,甚至连年幼的儿童也在所难免。

Too busy?

Have you thought about you and your family's health?   

        With the advent of our busy modern lifestyle, we are stressed, eat whatever we can get our hands on, and are exposed to many pollutants from our food, water, air, and modern medicine.  Due to this, today, many suffer from poor health and a host of medical problems to an extent never before witnessed.  Many have chosen the route of going on with their routines hoping that modern medicine will help them with their maladies.  However, since modern medicine has become ever abundant, rates of asthma, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, digestion problems, allergies, insomnia, male problems, female problems, liver problems, autoimmune disorders, and even cancer has exploded in children as well as adults. 



 

            创建现代医学是根据具体个人情况提供帮助,但是用以制作胶囊,片剂,液体,疫苗等的成分,却在实验室或工厂中合成,并配有许多不同的添加剂。它们可能被调节过,许多成分对身体来说是外来物,对我们的肝脏,肾脏和其他用于排毒的器官造成额外的压力。他们可能会修复或帮助一种病症,但是经常导致身体内其他物质的不平衡,因此几乎所有的药物都会引起一些副作用。那么考虑一下,现代医学真的改善了我们的健康吗?

       Modern medicine was created to help with specific conditions, but the components are synthesized in a laboratory or factory and come with many different additives to make the capsules, tablet, liquid, vaccine, etc.  They may be regulated, but many of the components are foreign to the body, putting additional stress on our livers, kidneys, and other organs used for detoxification.  They may fix or help with a condition, but regularly cause an imbalance of something else within the body, thus the reason for almost all medicines causing some array of side effects.  So think about it, has modern medicine really improved our health? 



 

            由于我们忙碌的现代生活方式,许多人根本不担心我们吃的食物,或者白天忙碌起来时总是忘记或者跳过吃一两餐。而现代的农作方式已经耗尽了土壤中的许多营养物质,由先前的有机农家肥取而代之的是化学合成的无机肥料,农药等。因此食物中本该有的营养成分大大降低不止还因残余大量农药和化学物质而对身体造成伤害。人们消费的许多食物都是经过加工的,甚至是合成的。我们的许多食物都受到污染,或者不是标签上所说的。你可能听说过危险的婴儿配方奶粉,由塑料制成的米饭,污点的肉类(还有激素肉,病死肉,僵尸肉等)以及关于我们食物安全的其他令人头疼的头条新闻。许多添加剂会对身体造成伤害,例如单一谷氨酸钠,糖精,塑料,阿斯巴甜等等举不胜举。食品现在甚至被转基因改造,就像变异的转基因玉米会自身分泌杀虫剂,杀死试图吃掉它的昆虫。(试想一下,我们吃了这些变异的物种真的没有关系吗?)还有变异的转基因大豆植物,更能抵抗农药,因此允许农民向这些植物喷洒更多更浓剂量的农药。你的想法是什么,你认为消费这些食物和添加剂会导致身体更加健康或者可能造成极大的危害?

       With our busy modern lifestyle, many don’t worry about the food we eat, or forget to each a meal or two during the day.  Farming methods used have depleted the soil of many nutrients and have sprayed crops with many pesticides, so the food many consume is less nutritious and can cause harm.  Many of the foods people consume are processed, even synthetic.  Many of our foods are contaminated or not what is says it to be on the label.  You’ve probably heard of stories of dangerous baby formulas, rice made out of plastic, tainted meat, and a whole other host of scary headlines concerning our food.  Many additives can cause harm to the body such as mono sodium glutamate, saccharin, plastics, aspartame, and a whole host more.  Foods are now even becoming genetically modified, like corn that produces its own pesticide killing the insects that try to eat it or soy plants that are more resistant to pesticide allowing farmers to add heavier doses of pesticide to these plants.  What are your thoughts, do you think consuming these foods and additives will lead to good health or perhaps great harm instead?



 

            我们的水源已经被铅,砷,氯副产物,化肥,氟化物,燃料推进剂,工业溶剂,药物,增塑剂和放射性同位素等重金属污染。有时也可能是被细菌,致癌剂等更多举不胜举的有害成分污染。许多人认为饮用瓶装水是更安全的,但很可能这些瓶装水只是经过重新包装过的更昂贵的自来水而已。并且瓶装水中发现的许多毒素也不受管制。你相信你喝的水吗?

        Our water sources have been polluted with heavy metals such as lead, arsenic, chlorine byproducts, fertilizer, fluoride, fuel propellants, industrial solvents, pharmaceutical drugs, plasticizers, and radioactive isotopes, sometimes bacteria, cancer causing agents and a whole host more of health damaging components.  Many think that drinking bottled water is safer, but a good portion is just repackaged more expensive tap water.  Many toxins found in bottled water are not regulated either.  Do you trust the water you drink?



 

            我们呼吸的空气呢?许多人意识到一氧化碳的问题,它会减少到达身体器官和组织的氧气的量。然而,还有使肺功能恶化的臭氧,从而导致哮喘更糟。金属工业,废物燃烧和含铅飞机燃料会损害影响记忆学习和智商的神经系统,以及对心脏和肾脏造成负面影响。来自木材,煤炭和柴油的颗粒物质可能会对肺,心脏,脑,神经,肝脏和肾脏造成极大的损害。如果你一整天都在室内,室内空气质量比室外差很多,但很多人会问,该怎么办?

       What about the air we breathe?  Many are aware of the problem of carbon monoxide which reduces the amount of oxygen reaching the body’s organs and tissue.  However, there is also ozone which deceases lung function making asthma worse.   Metal industries, waste burners, and leaded aircraft fuel damages the nervous system affecting memory learning and IQ as well as negative effects on the heart and kidneys.  Particulate matter from wood, coal, and diesel can cause great detriment to the lung, heart, brain, nerves, liver, and kidneys.  If you are staying indoors all day, many times indoor air quality is worse than outdoors, but many will ask, what to do?



 

            希望,我没有吓到你。其实有很经济且实用的方法来改善你的健康。只是可能需要一些时间和精力。我将会在ELIA US 的健康主页中讨论一些策略。然而,一个很好的开始是通过改变饮食和补充饮食与维生素,矿物质和基于健康食品的补充剂。请注意,不是所有的维生素,矿物质和膳食补充剂都是一样的品质的,有些可能被污染,如含有汞的鱼油,有害的添加剂的片剂或合成的维生素。这些不被身体认同的外来物不仅无益反而会导致更多的危害。此外,尝试自己随意补充补充剂的人可能会摄取太多的维生素或矿物质,这些维生素或矿物质会引起毒性或与另一种补充剂,草药,医疗状况或所用药物相互作用。所以咨询专业人士是最妥当的。当正确使用身体能识别的维生素,矿物质和膳食补充剂,可以真正提高您的健康。那么,你是否希望能有一个健康愉快的生活方式?如果是这样,你还在等什么?。(执笔者背景:美国高级医药师高级顾问。美国本土白人。持美国医师执照。译者为www.eliaus.com 的博主Elia,两个孩子的妈妈,也是执笔者的妻子。) 

       Hope, I haven’t scared you, but there are practical ways of improving your health.  It may take some time and effort.  There are some strategies that I will discuss in future posts.  However, a great way to start is by changes in diet and with supplementation of that diet with vitamins, minerals, and healthy food based supplements.  Please be aware that not all vitamins, minerals, and dietary supplements are created equally, some can be contaminated like fish oil with mercury, tablets with harmful additives, or synthetic vitamins, not recognized by the body which causes more harm than good.  Additionally, people who try to supplement their diet themselves may be getting too much of a vitamin or mineral which can cause toxicity or an interaction with another supplement, herbal, medical condition, or a medication they are taking.  So, it is always good to ask those who know.  When used properly with the proper forms of them that the body recognizes vitamins, minerals, and dietary supplements can really improve your health.  So, are you up for the task to live a healthy and enjoyable lifestyle?  If so, what are you waiting for?
