Man says FRUITARIAN lifestyle made him feel “SUPERHUMAN” hmmm…

mike-arnstein
(NaturalNews) For fruitarian and endurance athlete Michael Arnstein, his 15-mile commute to work isn’t by car, bus or train. Instead, he runs to the office, jogging through residential neighborhoods and eventually New York’s Central Park, pausing only to enjoy fruit along the way. Before his run, he may enjoy a breakfast of approximately 15 oranges. By the end of the day, he’s consumed about 6,000 calories, having eaten “nothing but raw fruits and vegetables, primarily fruits.”

Thanks to his raw food lifestyle, Arnstein says he feels “almost superhuman,” benefiting from everything from improved running time to better vision.

Turning to raw foods when nothing else worked

“I tried all the things in the vitamin shops,” says Arnstein in an interview with CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “I’ve tried all the supplements and I’ve tried protein diets, I’ve tried everything.” He adds that eating nothing but raw foods and vegetables “has absolutely transformed [me] as a person.”

With four refrigerators in his house and shopping trips at warehouses, he says, “I eat a lot, as most animals in nature do.” Yet his healthful choices and exercise regimen keep his weight in check. He prides himself on the fact that he has a mere 3-5% of body fat and that he had the seventh fastest 100-mile time ever as an American.

Additional benefits of eating raw

Arnstein, known as “The Fruitarian” on his YouTube channel, also says he’s experiencing a host of other health benefits from his raw food diet including:

Improved vision

He says his eyesight “remarkably improved” when he started a raw food diet, noting that everything was significantly sharper.

Better skin

Arnstein says he never has dry skin, nor does he have that annoying eye crust that most people have upon waking up.

Improved energy

“I’m alive, I’m vibrant,” he says. Raw foods not only have given him mental clarity but have helped his marathon times improve.

Improved immune system

He says, “I don’t get sick, I don’t get injured.” He explains that, even after running distances of up to 100 miles, his body does not break down.

Arnstein urges everyone to try a raw food diet, if only for just two weeks. In that time frame, perhaps even less, he’s confident that people will experience the benefits of what he calls a “common sense” diet.VaporJuiceBillboards2

Bananas kick ash !

Potassium: Bananas are a rich source of potassium, an essential compound that is good for the body in many ways. First, it helps with muscle contraction and therefore helps all the bodily functions that require muscular action, like pumping the heart, digestion, walking, eye movement, to name but a few.

  1. Calcium Retention: The potassium also prevents calcium from leaching out of your body through urine, which means it minimizes the risk of kidney stones and osteoporosis.
  2. Mood-Booster: Do you know why many people feel happy after Thanksgiving dinner? It’s not just the alcohol consumed, it’s the tryptophan. Tryptophan helps the body release seratonin, which has a calming effect on the brain. Our bodies do not produce tryptophan naturally, so bananas are a great source.
  3. Vitamin Booster: Citrus fruits usually get all the glory for vitamin C, but the bright yellow banana also provides 15 percent of our daily requirement! Vitamin…

Eczema caused by detergent

at home with Guinever

A big thanks to Eczema our family’s solution for this information.

My 2 year old has had eczema since birth. Bad eczema. The first time I took him to the allergy doctor a few months ago, the doctor said it was bad, not the worst he’s seen, but a very bad case. His skin is like leather, soaking up everything we’ve smeared on it, and we’ve tried many products. But it’s not just rough and lizardy looking, there are breakouts too, caused by certain foods.

The allergist told us to rub canola oil (we also used coconut oil and evening primrose oil) into his skin about 10 times a day. We did that, religiously. But the oil  just soaked right into his skin. We didn’t even have to really worry about him getting oil onto the furniture or the floor because the oil literally just disappeared into the skin. I…

Top foods with more vitamin C than an orange, though oranges do kick ash

brocoli(NaturalNews) Without enough vitamin C, cell growth and circulatory health can be compromised (1). Vitamin C is necessary to ensure that the system develops properly and is able to function well every step of the way; however, many people may be deficient in this nutrient, which can lead to an inability for the immune system to operate at peak effectiveness (2).

Those with a vitamin C deficiency may experience a variety of symptoms ranging from fatigue and weight loss to bruising easier and having more muscle and joint aches (1).

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), it’s recommended that adult men consume 90 mg of vitamin C daily and that adult women obtain 75 mg daily (2). The amount varies depending on age, gender and other factors such as if a person is pregnant or breastfeeding.

Foods rich in vitamin C

While an orange is likely the first food to come to mind as the go-to vitamin C source, there are other foods that top its levels of the nutrient. For example, one navel orange has about 83 mg of it, but a small papaya has 96 mg of vitamin C (3). Additionally, papaya has other health benefits including the fact that it’s high in fiber and folate.

Broccoli is another food with a high vitamin C content; one serving has about 132 mg of the nutrient (3). According to The World’s Healthiest Foods website, “Amongst all of the commonly consumed cruciferous vegetables, broccoli stands out as the most concentrated source of a premiere antioxidant nutrient–vitamin C (4).”

Strawberries also contain high levels of vitamin C. One serving has nearly 87 mg of it, and consumption of them has also been linked to reductions in cognitive decline (3).

Cauliflower, with nearly 128 mg of vitamin C in a head that’s about 4 inches in diameter, is another source of the nutrient. The World’s Healthiest Foods also touts this food as an “excellent” vitamin C source that does wonders for fighting damaging free radicals in the body and acting as an anti-inflammatory (5).

Eating these foods on a regular basis can increase vitamin C levels and boost overall health. As always, choose fresh, organic options.
