Seborrhoeic Dermatitis


Seborrhoeic dermatitis is characterized by a red, greasy, scaly rash that is usually found on the face, especially around the nose, forehead, chin and in the eyebrows.

Other common sites include the armpit, groin and the skin over the breast bone (sternum) in the middle of the chest.
While the precise cause of Seborrhoeic dermatitis is not known for sure, it often seems to be related to an overgrowth of the yeast organism Candida Albicans in the system. If the rash is itchy, then this is a bit of a clue that Candida may be the underlying factor.

Nutritional Supplements.

Taking a B-complex supplement each day can sometimes benefit seborrheic dermatitis. Another useful natural approach is vitamin B6 cream (10mg of B6 per gram of cream). One study showed that B6 cram could be quite effective in controlling seborrhoeic dermatitis.

Chinese Nutritional Therapy

According to Chinese Nutritional Therapy, you can take either or both of these to treat this condition.

1: Bamboo Soup

  • Boil 100g Bamboo shoots & 2 cloves of garlic in 1lt water. Simmer for 15 minutes, Season with white
    and black pepper.
  • Drink in evening
  • Eat Bamboo shoots

2: Chinese Cabbage Drink

  • When the condition is active.
  • Squeeze 1 to 2 Chinese cabbages to obtain the juice, warm it.
  • Drink the juice twice a day for 10 days.

Bone broth is crammed with nutritional powerhouses, such as glucosamine, chondroitin, essential minerals and gelatine. Take a look at the ingredients and discover that bone broth is simple and inexpensive to make. The cider vinegar used in this recipe helps to release more minerals from the bones.
The recipe below can be altered to suit whatever leftovers you have in the kitchen. Other broths can be made using whole, raw chicken.

To prepare this wholesome nutritious, chicken broth full of essential nutrients, I recommend a heavy-bottomed stock pot and a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth. You can use kitchen leftovers and scraps, such as carrot peelings, onion ends, celery leaves and bits of leek, which may have been kept in a large plastic bag in the freezer.

Ingredients

  • 1 Roast Chicken Carcass leftover
  • Vegetable leftovers (onion trimmings, celery leaves, carrot peels, garlic etc)
  • 2 Bay Leafs
  • 1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar

Instructions

  • Pick the chicken carcass clean of useable meat and keep for another dish.
  • Add the chicken carcass, vegetable leftovers and bay leafs to the heavy-bottomed stock pot.
  • Pour filtered water over contents to cover.
  • Add cider vinegar.
  • Simmer for a minimum of 4 hours and up to 12, adding more water as needed or desired.
  • Skim any scum that rises to the top.
  • Strain solids from the broth through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth.

Ginger Chicken to Strengthen the Body


This dish is traditionally prepared to strengthen the body and improve lactation, especially for new mums during the Chinese tradition “Zuo Yue Zi”  indicating the first month after giving birth. During this period, Traditional Chinese Medicine recommends eating warming food (Yang) because the body has lost a lot of Yang energy and blood during delivery. We would also recommend that mothers take a gentle yet powerful tonic remedy called Womans Precious which is based on a famous Chinese herbal formula.

This warming dish is also perfect in Autumn/Fall/Winter when we are susceptible to cold.

What you need:

  • vegetable oil
  • ginger cut into thin strips
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • chicken breast cut into small pieces
  • soy sauce to taste
  • pepper to taste

How to make it:

  • Heat oil in a frying pan (wok).
  • When the oil is hot, add the garlic cloves and ginger strips. Cook for about two minutes, stirring constantly with a pair of chopsticks.
  • When the garlic and ginger become golden brown, add the chicken previously cut into thin pieces.
  • Cook stirring constantly until the chicken is golden.
  • Season with soy sauce to taste.
  • Serve with a bowl of jasmine rice per person.

Vegetarian Choice:

You can also add carrot cut into strips and cook it together with the ginger stripes. The taste will result sweeter. Furthermore by stir-frying the carrots beta carotene will be preserved.

Caution:

Due to its anti-platelet properties, the use of ginger should be controlled in case of risk of haemorrhage, if you are taking anticoagulant drugs or if you experience blood coagulation disorders. Ask your doctor for more information.

Common Sense Meal Plan


You have taken the first major step toward reshaping your entire midsection. Now it is important to start right, in order to get the best possible results and unveil your new body!

If you are struggling with achieving a healthy weight this is the program for you This Common Sense Meal Plan includes an easy to follow nutritional plan as well as some simple recommendations for a cardiovascular program that will accelerate your results.

I’ve looked at many Crash diets, quick fix gimmicks, and endless other methods which give little to no results. So education and simple common sense advice is needed and is actually all you need.

I salute you for taking this first step.

Pay attention to your caloric in take!

Note:

  • 1 gram 0f Protein has 4 calories
  • 1 gram of carbohydrates has 4 calories
  • 1 gram of Fat has 9 calories
  • 1 gram of Alcohol has 7 calories

You should strive to eat a balanced diet and stay within your body’s Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), which is the amount of calories your body needs to perform its daily functions. At the end of the day, your progress will be determined by the energy (calories) you take In from food, minus the energy (calories) you expend through exercise.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you should strive to eat every two to three hours. When you go much longer than that without consuming a meal, your body goes into starvation mode and your metabolism slows or shuts down in an attempt to burn as little energy as possible to keep you alive. . There are many formulas to calculate your BMR. A simple and accurate one is the Harris Benedict Equation. This accounts for about 60 to 70 percent of calories burned in a day and includes the energy required to keep the heart beating, the lungs breathing, the kidneys functioning, and the body temperature stabilized.

  • BMR For an adult male: 66 + (6.3 x body weight in lbs.) + (12.9 x height in inches) (6.8 x age in years)
  • BMR for an adult female: 655 + (4.3 x weight in lbs.) + (4.7 x height in indies) (4.7 x age in years)

After calculating your BMR, divide this into equal meals to be eaten every two to three hours, combining protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fat with your first few meals and then protein and vegetables, or protein and healthy fat with your final meals of the day. The reason for this is that carbohydrates are what your body chooses to burn first, so if you eliminate them late at night, your body will more readily rely on fat for fuel than if there is always a constant excess of carbohydrates in the body. If you have the carbohydrates your first few meals of the day, you should be fueled with more than enough glycogen to get through the day, and ‘go to bed with a lower glycogen level that in you were to ingest late night carbohydrates.

Proteins: Chicken breast (grilled), turkey breast (grilled), LEAN steak, fish (salmon, trout, whiting, tilapia), egg whites / or lean protein shake with very low carb content. If you’re going to have a shake, try to limit yourself to ONE shake per day, preferably either at breakfast, or directly following your workout. Please, do NOT fry any of your foods!

Purpose of proteins: Protein repairs your muscle tissue. A muscle IS protein. Proteins also have no effect on your blood sugar levels. Therefore if you are hungry at NIGHT, protein would be a good food choice to have (as it doesn’t affect your blood sugar levels and body fat tends to be stored when you raise your blood sugar levels). You can also have a salad as well, if you don’t feel like having protein. Whatever you do, do NOT have any carbs late at night, when your goal will be to burn off excess fat while you sleep, so that when you wake up in the morning and do your cardio, you are burning even more stored

FAT for energy! You will burn the most fat when you have little to N0 carbs in your system! But at the same time, you need more complex carbs to fuel you throughout the day. I cannot stress how important all this is, and as time goes on, you will get to know your body a lot better.

Carbohydrates: Plain oats with water (if you can’t bear the water, have a small amount of skim milk with the oats, but LIMIT THE DAIRY, it will hinder your goals). yams, grits, brown rice, cream of rice, cream of wheat. If you are going to do cereals, try to stick with a cereal that is low in sugar and have a small amount of it.

Portion control is key with everything. carbohydrates are the most important of the food groups you will have to watch and understand. The closer you can stay to these choices for your carbs, the better off you will be. Stay away from bread, pasta and dairy as they will cause you to take longer to drop weight. Vegetables can be eaten ANYTIME. FILL yourself up on huge salads, with balsamic vinegar and garlic powder (or seasoning of your choice, e.g. Ms. Dash).

Purpose of Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are divided into two types: Simple and complex. Simple carbs are short chains of sugars, which get broken down by your body easily. They typically come from sweet sources (candy, fruits, Gatorade). They don’t provide as long term sustenance as do their complex counterparts. The only time you should have simple carbs is some fruit for breakfast, or an isotonic drink after your workout with a protein shake (this is known as your post workout meal and is VERY important). Complex carbohydrates are longer chains of sugars, which last a longer time in your body and provide more fulfillment, since you will be waiting between 2-3 hours in between meals. Complex carbs are typically NOT sweet (pasta, rice, potatoes, bread, etc).

Fat: Canola oil, olive oil, Udo’s Choice Blend, 1 small avocado, NATURAL peanut butter (check that the ingredients are just peanuts and salt; NOTHING else), almonds. (You can spray your pans with PAM, which will be much better than putting oil in there. . .it is thinner and won’t stick to you like the oil). The oil should preferably be taken orally instead of used with your cooking, as cooking changes the way it works with your body.

Purpose of fat: If you don’t give your body a certain source of calorie, it will go into ”starvation” mode for that food and will hold onto it. If you don’t eat enough fat, your body will HOLD ONTO fat, instead of burn it. Therefore you should be eating small amounts of fat throughout the day (no more than 809 in a day); to make sure that your body knows you are getting some, and then it will release excess fat into your bloodstream a lot easier. Also, unsaturated (healthy) fats are good for your heart and help a lot of other metabolic processes. Drink as much water as you can ALL day. It will only help you to drop water weight, by urination. One would think that drinking water would make you hold onto water, but it will ONLY do that if you eat T00 many carbs, or too much junk food. Otherwise, the purpose of it is to FLUSH salt and excess water from under your skin, thereby INCREASING definition. Remember this, and drink water all day!! Just make sure that you take a multi-vitamin, because when you urinate, you are excreting your minerals, which need to be replaced. Drinking a lot of water with the dandelion root will help you lose water weight more quickly. Green tea will help also. I drink a LOT of green tea, and it does wonders for your organs, body, mind, and helps to get rid of excess water weight. It is full of antioxidants which help light cancer.

Late night eating: this is one of the most important parts you must understand. The purpose of your time after 8PM is to maintain a low blood sugar level, in order to go to bed with little glycogen in your system. This means having NO Carbs late night, so that you can go to bed and burn fat while you sleep. Then, when you wake up and do cardio, you will be burning MORE fat!

Here are foods to have late night, if you are hungry (Try not to eat anything that’s not on this list): PLAIN air popped popcorn with NOTHING on it, your choice of protein (chicken breast, turkey, steak, fish, or egg whites). And of course you can have big huge salads (no heavy dressing, just balsamic vinegar, and garlic powder, lemon juice, garlic salt, a little canola or olive oil etc.) Just STAY away from the carbs!!

Very Important: I cannot stress the importance of this enough, If you can ditch the late night carbs, you will see AMAZING results.

Structure of your Meals: Your meals for one week will consist of 1 serving protein and 1 serving of carbs for your first 3 or 4 meals. If you have anything else after those 4 meals, it should just be light protein and salad (no carbs). Keep your carbs earlier in the day, AFTER your cardio preferably. For those of you who can’t do your cardio on the morning, it’s Important to get cardio in later on in the day to burn that stored glycogen.
