Eating just 3 servings of whole grains each day may reduce the risk of getting a heart attack and the risk of getting a stroke. Almost daily new information becomes available supporting plant based eating. Since 1996 I have taught self hypnosis to people who are interested in changing unhealthy eating habits of processed and fast foods for healthy habits of whole grains, vegetables and fruit. 17 years later I am still thrilled when Seattle hypnosis and Bainbridge Island hypnosis clients tell me that in as little as 3 weeks of healthy eating they are reducing blood pressure medications and diabetes medication. Their medical doctors are excited and very supportive of these healthy lifestyle changes. You too can learn hypnosis and make healthy lifestyle changes.
Whole Grains May Work As Well As Drugs
An analysis of a bunch of randomized drug trials suggests that taking a blood pressure lowering medication for high blood pressure may reduce the risk of getting a heart attack by 15% and the risk of getting a stroke by about 25%. What a coincidence, a recent study found that we may achieve similar benefits eating just 3 portions of whole grains a day. “The observed decrease in systolic blood pressure could decrease the incidence of coronary artery disease and stroke by 15% and 25%, respectively. While whole grains are good, refined grains may not just be neutral. Out of Harvard: White rice, brown rice, and risk of type 2 diabetes: In these 3 prospective cohort studies of US men and women, we found that regular consumption of white rice was associated with higher risk of T2D, whereas brown rice intake was associated with lower risk. An interesting wrinkle is that they found other whole grains may be even better than brown rice. Eating white rice was associated with a 17% greater risk of diabetes; replace with brown and instead apparently get a 16% drop in risk, and replace white rice with other whole grains, such as oats and barley? A 36% lower diabetes risk. Just a single serving a day of oats or barley may lower our cholesterol. Whole grains are more than just refined grains with a fiber coat. With white flour you get this, but all the rest is stripped away…. which includes most of the compounds responsible for whole grain contributions to the health of our bowels, weight, blood sugar, cancer prevention, bones brain and heart. The powerful effects of whole grains aren’t lost on food industry marketing teams who now offer a whole grain guarantee, on foods like this…
Whole grains retain the nutrients — especially fiber — otherwise removed by processing. Whole grains help keep your stomach slender which also helps protect against heart disease and diabetes. The latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend that you make at least half of your 5 to 8 grain servings whole.
When you learn hypnosis it can be easy for you to increase the whole grains in your diet. Using self hypnosis it can even be easy for die-hard meat eaters to discover the health benefits of living a plant based lifestyle.
