6. Eat organic lean meats (poultry or grass-fed beef), omega-3 eggs, fish, and nuts. These have higher omega-3 fatty acids which boosts your immune system, boosts your mood, improves blood circulation, and reduces inflammation in the body. Add almonds or walnuts to oatmeal. Stay away from large fish like shark, tuna. and mahi mahi which have higher levels of mercury. Taking a good quality fish oil (Carlson's) or Flaxseed oil may be a better alternative in the future with the increase in threat of radiation poisoning coming from Japan. Fukushima is still leaking 300 tons of radiation per day. (3) The radiation is expected to hit US shores by 2014.
7. Eliminate wheat especially if you are overweight. Modern wheat (wheat that has been changed significantly in the last 50 years to increase yield and gluten) is very difficult to digest. Most people have symptoms related to wheat allergies but don't know wheat is the culprit. Wheat can cause allergy symptoms, weight gain, headaches, fatigue, indigestion, memory problems, and a host of other not so pleasant symptoms. Wheat is as addicting as sugar. It makes you want to eat more wheat. Give up wheat for a month and I promise you will lose weight and feel better. You can eat bread made with spelt flour if you must have bread. Spelt is not a modern wheat and has a lower amount of gluten. However, if you have a problem with gluten, you should not eat spelt. It is best to give up all gluten for a month and then add back spelt. If you feel fine, then great.
8. Balance your hormones. If you are over 40, get your hormones tested. Being deficient in estrogen or progesterone can increase your risk of cancer. Use bio-identical hormone creams. They are the safest. (4)
