3 Things Your Ancestors Did to Stay Healthy

www.firstpeople.us
Our ancestors did a lot of things to stay healthy. That's for sure. But I want you to see only 3 things here. Do the same so you'd stay healthy, too.

1. Moved It! They moved around a lot, possibly most times of the day, to hunt for food. Imagine, they had to hike miles, run fast a lot, climb hills, mountains, trees and cliffs just to have something to eat each meal---breakfast, lunch and supper.

I'm not saying you hunt for food each meal like that as well. What I'm saying is, keep moving. Keep busy with physical activities---walk, run, jump and climb. Walk to your office and back home if it's within walking distance, or get off the bus or jeep several corners before the exact spot you should get off. Take the stairs and if possible jump 2 to 3 steps at a time.

Avoid taking conveniences when you have to go to places---don't take the elevator or escalator. Don't take pedicabs or tricycles.

Walk, walk, walk!

Don't let yourself get tied to your desk all day. Get up and visit upper floors for a while by taking the stairs. If you need to go the restroom, use the one on the upper floor. Get brisk-walking breaks now and then and walk briskly along the corridors.

Get it?

2. Ate Organic. Okay, I know organic food is costly.  What I'm saying is, eat more organic food from now on. You may not afford eating it 3 meals a day, but at least eat organic once. Our ancestors never ate anything with preservatives, food color or chemicals. Most times they ate them raw. And definitely they had no junk food, no cigarettes, no softdrinks and no beer. And as much as possible, eat fresh vegetables and fruits lots of times. Eat fresh fruit before meals.

3. Slept Early. No TV, Facebook, electronic chat, mobile phones, or DVD when our ancestors lived. I imagine how they slept at 8 pm and woke up at 4 am.

Do these 3 and you'd stay healthy (but ask your doctor about it first).

Get an idea how (funny) cavemen lived in their time:

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

Apple Stem Cell Health Benefits and Why You Need Them

We all know how advanced aging damages skin quality. But plant stem cells, especially from apples, were found to powerfully delay aging and its toll on the skin. This was discovered in many plant stem cell researches.  Stem cells are plant cells extracted from plant stems. As simple as that. So they're all-natural. And they divide and renew themselves continually as long as they're alive. Imagine if your cells are like that. Swiss Malus Domestica Apple plant stem cell (malus domestica) grown and enhanced in Switzerland since the 18th century is most apt for stimulating aging human skin stem cell, lessening unsightly skin wrinkles. It prolongs or extends the life of skin cells so you get a more youthful and radiant look.  When you age your skin cells' ability to divide slows down, unable to create enough new skin cells. So you get lots more of old or dying cells than new cells. These skin cells in your body must be replaced---and here is where the Swiss apple stem cells ent…
