Body fat rises directly followed by ''upper body''
 
Too much body fat can cause myocardial infarction, diabetes, hypertension, cancer and many other conditions. Therefore, reducing body fat is not only for beauty, but also for health.
 
What is recessive obesity?
 
If you just use diet to lose weight, what you lose is not the body fat you want to remove, but the important bones, blood, muscles, and water. In other words, although the weight is reduced, the fat rate is unchanged and it is still in an obese state, which is called hidden obesity. Using the wrong weight loss method is easy to endanger your health, so eating a balanced nutrition, low-calorie diet, and adequate exercise can really achieve the purpose of weight loss.

Speed ​​up metabolism
 
Metabolism is the process by which the body consumes energy and is also the best ''fat burner'' in the body. The metabolism is fast, the consumption is large, and you can lose weight naturally. So how do you improve your metabolism? That is exercise, which increases the body's muscle content and improves cardiopulmonary levels.

Weight Management Tips
 
John of America? According to the concept of dynamic balance, Professor Fult made 7 suggestions for maintaining a healthy weight:
 
1.Sleep 8 hours a day;
2.Eat breakfast;
3. Walk 60 minutes a day;
4, record the food you eat, and calculate the energy intake;
5.Monitor weight;
6, relatives and friends support and encourage each other to maintain a healthy lifestyle;
7. Perseverance.
 
Weight management is a healthy life concept. This concept focuses on the combination of a balanced diet and reasonable exercise, lifestyle adjustments, and the support and encouragement of relatives and friends. Up to now, not only hundreds of millions of people around the world have experienced the benefits of healthy weight loss through weight management, but also tens of thousands of physically obese people have gained a healthy body and a more exciting life from weight management programs.
 
How does weight management work? The following knowledge points will surely allow you to more fully understand this weight loss concept and better manage weight.
 
Night is the easiest time to gain body fat
 
There is a lot of activity during the day, and almost all the food for breakfast and lunch is converted into energy for the activity. However, after dinner, the activity is reduced, so the excess calories become fat. Especially during sleep, it is easiest to synthesize fat and accumulate in the body. Therefore, it is not advisable to eat supper before going to bed, so that you can lose weight early.
 
Without breakfast, body fat will increase
 
Taking the same calorie intake as an example, people who eat two meals a day are more likely to get fat than those who eat three meals a day. Because the interval between eating is too long, the body will send a signal of hunger. When eating again, the food will be more easily converted into fat and stored in the body. So anyway, breakfast is a daily necessity.

Hormones Imbalance
 
Hormones play a role in regulating the internal environment of the human body's metabolism, coordination between organs, growth, development, and reproduction. Hormones maintain the normal functioning of the human body's physiological functions. If the hormones are imbalanced, the physiological functions will decline and age, and various symptoms of maladjustment will appear. For example: irritability, irritability, insomnia, memory loss, pain, wrinkles, stains, etc. The loss of hormones and physiological pain accelerate the aging of the human body! In addition, autotoxicity and malnutrition can lead to aging.

 
Human Ageing in three stages
 
Stage I Mild aging 35-45 years

睡眠

睡眠

迷思一:能夠睡得著,就是睡得好?
 
睡著後的睡眠品質一般人不一定會知道,根據美國睡眠醫學會(AASM)出版的國際睡眠障礙分類標準(ICSD),將睡眠障礙分成83種,只有一種睡不著是自己知道的,其他82種都是睡著之後才會發生,因此睡得著不表示睡得好,睡著之後,還有80餘種疾病有可能發生,我們要確認沒有睡眠相關疾病才是真的睡得好。
 
迷思二:人為什麼會打呼,打呼就是睡得香?
 
打呼是上呼吸道空間不夠的表現,持續下去可能會導致呼吸的阻力提高,造成上呼吸道阻力症候群,造成呼吸障礙,更進一步容易導致通氣量不足,也就是所謂阻塞性睡眠通氣量不足,嚴重者會導致睡眠時長期的缺氧,而影響到白天的精神狀況及後續的慢性病產生,例如高血壓、心臟病,最嚴重的是中風,所以打呼須經檢查,沒有檢查就不確定是什麼狀態,也難以了解對身體的影響有多少。

迷思三:每晚一定要睡滿8小時才正常?
 
根據研究,每個人一天的睡眠需求量不一樣,影響每個人基本睡眠需求量是由基因以及環境交互作用所共同呈現。睡眠時間長短會以常態曲線分佈來呈現,就像身高也是一樣,是基因表現所產生的結果,常態曲線的分佈,亞洲人身高較高的約180、190公分,矮的很少矮於150公分,睡眠時間也有類似的狀況。

迷思四:失眠者是幾乎整晚都沒有睡?
 
其實大部分的失眠者都認為自己整個晚上都沒睡,但是經過睡眠檢測發現,就算是嚴重的失眠者,每個晚上仍舊可以睡好幾個小時,只是一般人在熟睡的情況下,無法體驗時間的消逝,因此對於自己睡了多久,判斷並不準確。
 
迷思五:失眠者簡單來說都是「睡不著」?
 
根據國際睡眠障礙分類標準(ICSD),失眠可分成11種不同的亞型,因此雖然都有共通的症狀失眠,但其致病機轉不盡相同,臨床表現與治療的方式也就不同。
 
迷思六:睡前運動、泡澡較好入睡?
 
睡前運動、泡熱水澡會讓身體的核心體溫上升,以及血液循環與代謝變快,這3種狀況會讓人的生理時鐘運行往後延遲,不利於睡眠的進行,一般要等到運動過後幾個小時,身體代謝恢復到正常、核心體溫下降,才有利於入眠。
 
迷思七:喝酒可以助眠?
 
喝酒會讓人感到放鬆,對某些人來講比較容易入睡,但是全身肌肉放鬆的同時也會讓上呼吸道的肌肉更放鬆,因此睡眠中的打呼會更大聲,使得原本沒有睡眠呼吸中止症的人,可能因此導致睡眠呼吸中止,而原本已經有此症狀的患者,可能會變得更加嚴重。
另外,酒精的代謝物乙醛不利於睡眠的維持,因此即便是剛喝完酒的人會想要睡覺,但是睡到半夜會因為乙醛發生作用,導致睡眠結構不穩定,而影響睡眠狀態。
 
迷思八:平日睡不夠,假日補眠就好?
 
平日睡不夠會形成睡眠債,假日補眠到底是否足以還債,這是一個問題,但確定的是假日補眠會比較晚起,反而會讓生理時鐘的規律性打亂,長此以往,其實對睡眠生理時鐘的維持是不好的。我們要改善睡眠,還不如早起,睡眠作息越規律越好。

迷思九:小孩好動,是睡太飽、活力充沛?
 
睡眠品質不好的小孩,白天表現的方式和大人不同,因為疲憊,所以會以好動來支撐體力,白天比較難靜下來,甚至會以過動來表現,而導致注意力不集中,就常被認定是過動兒。
臨床上有2成過動兒確認是因為睡眠障礙所導致的症狀,因此小孩好動,應該要先排除是否有睡眠障礙。

迷思十:高血壓、心臟病等慢性病吃藥一輩子也不會好?
 
高血壓吃藥一輩子不會好嗎?我們可能要先了解是否因睡眠障礙引起高血壓、心臟病。根據過去20年來的科學研究,以及世界知名醫學期刊,如美國醫學會雜誌(JAMA)、《刺胳針》(The Lancet)等,均有非常多研究指出,因為交感神經長期亢奮,會引起高血壓、心臟病,甚至中風。這些實證醫學的研究基礎非常扎實、研究設計嚴謹,很難被推翻。
如果高血壓的患者,沒有先確認是否因睡眠呼吸中止而導致的長期缺氧、血壓上升,只有用降壓藥治療,如此只治標不治本,是無法根治的。臨床證據顯示,治癒睡眠呼吸中止相關疾病之後,血壓不藥而癒的例子也非常多。

Lifestyle habits improve immunity:
 
1. Sleep quality:
 
Sleep is closely related to human immunity. Immunologists have found through self-sleep tests that good sleep can increase the number of two lymphocytes in the body.
 
Studies by medical experts have shown that during sleep, the body produces a sleep factor called muramic acid, which promotes the increase of white blood cells, active macrophages, and enhanced liver detoxification functions, thereby eliminating bacteria and viruses that invade the body.
 
2. Optimism:
 
An optimistic attitude can maintain the human body in an optimal state, especially in today's society, people face great pressure, and huge psychological pressure will lead to an increase in hormone components that have a suppressive effect on the human immune system, so they are susceptible to colds or Attack of other diseases.
 
3. Tolerance:
 
Tolerance is a good psychological quality. It not only contains understanding and forgiveness, but also shows strength and mind, strength and strength.
 
A person who does not tolerate and only knows others who are critical of others is often in a state of nervousness, which leads to nerve excitement, vasoconstriction, and increased blood pressure, which puts psychology and physiology into a vicious circle.
 
Learning to be tolerant will be stricter than self-discipline. Tolerant to others is tantamount to putting a regulating valve on your own psychology.
 
4. Moderate drinking:
 
Drink less than 100 ml of low-grade white wine, 250 ml of yellow wine, and no more than 1 bottle of beer every day, because alcohol has a negative impact on every part of the human body.
Even if drinking wine can lower cholesterol, you should limit one glass a day. Excessive drinking can cause great damage to blood and heart organs.
 
5. Strengthen exercise:
 
Three studies conducted by experts pointed out that after 30 to 45 minutes of exercise every day, 5 days a week, for 12 weeks, the number of immune cells will increase and the resistance will also increase. As long as your heart rate is quicker for exercise, walking after dinner is great.
 
6. Stay away from noise:
 
Noise not only hurts people's hearing, but also causes muscle tension, rapid heartbeat, vasoconstriction, and digestive system discomfort. This is the same as the body's response when frightened or stressed.
Long-term exposure to noise can cause adverse changes in blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and immune function.
Cornell University research found that women who work in noisy environments release more adrenaline and are more likely to develop heart disease than women who work in quiet offices.
The car whistle and dog bark make people feel that the uncontrollable sound is more harmful to the human body. Therefore, people should try to control the sound of the surrounding environment, even if they wear headphones, or ask the restaurant owner and gym manager to turn down the volume of the audio.
 
7. Internal environmental protection:
 
Improve the internal ecological environment. Studies have shown that beneficial bacteria groups represented by intestinal bifidobacteria and lactobacillus have broad-spectrum immunogenicity, can stimulate the division and reproduction of lymphocytes responsible for human immunity, and can also mobilize the non-specific immune system to ''eat ''Drop out all kinds of pathogenic foreign microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, chlamydia, etc., and produce a variety of antibodies to improve the human immune system.

Sub-health
Suboptimal health status (SHS), or subhealth or sub-health(Chinese: 亚健康), can be defined as a state characterized by some disturbances in psychological behaviors or physical characteristics, or in some indices of medical examination, with no typical pathologic features.
It is considered as a therapeutic working concept which defines an intermediate stage between health and disease, which is not quite either status. Human persons who are sub-healthy have any of a range of uncomfortable symptoms but without any obvious and diagnosable illnesses which can be identified through standard medical observation methods. This concept was first presented as ''the third state'' by the scholar of former Soviet Union, Berkman, in the mid-1980s. It is also interpreted as different terms like ''intermediate state'', ''grey state'' or ''a general malaise''. Sub-health is a term which is widely used by Chinese people, or in connection with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).Some feel that the notion of SHS has been invented to sell people medical products.

What Is It?
“Ketogenic” is a term for a low-carb diet (like the Atkins diet). The idea is for you to get more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates. You cut back most on the carbs that are easy to digest, like sugar, soda, pastries, and white bread.
 
What do you eat on the keto diet?
The keto diet is essentially a high-fat diet — your meals are 70 or 80 percent fat; about 20 percent protein; and about 5 percent carbohydrate. It is not an Atkins high-protein diet.
 
The keto diet switches you from burning glucose (which carbs provide) to burning ketones (which fat produces) for energy. When you do this, interesting things happen:
 
Your metabolism speeds up.
Your hunger goes away.
Your muscle mass increases.
Your blood pressure and heart disease risk profile improve.

How to self weight management
 
Controlling energy intake
 
Controlling energy intake is to make the total daily energy intake less than or equal to the total daily energy expenditure. In this way, we need to get a good idea of ​​the energy contained in various foods. We often think that the most straightforward way to control energy is to avoid certain foods that are considered high in energy, such as soda.
In fact, the energy of soda is taken for granted, and the claim that drinking soda causes obesity is not based on facts.
According to the Coca-Cola packaging logo and the ''Chinese Food Ingredients 2009'' published by the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention of Nutrition and Food Safety, the energy contained in 100 ml of Coca-Cola Soda is 43 kcal.) Card) is even lower. Therefore, it is very important to correctly understand the energy contained in food.
 
take more exercise
 
Is it easy to manage weight simply by holding your mouth? The answer is certainly not. Professor John Fult, an authoritative expert on obesity control in the United States, has suggested that the key to whether or not obesity is determined by whether the total amount of energy we consume and the total amount of energy consumed through exercise are balanced. The scientific way to maintain weight is to eat a balanced diet and use the energy you consume to exercise. ①Remember, you have to spread your legs!

Cell life Filling the gaps of cells with metabolic waste can also cause cell aging; cell mutations and chromosomal aberrations can also induce aging. Common causes include ionizing radiation and radiation hazards. Systemic failure The mental shock makes people suddenly aging, indicating that the brain center has a huge impact on aging. Some people will quietly die soon after the death of their relatives. This is a typical example of aging affected by the central nervous system. Protein aging The possible pathways are: errors in protein synthesis; aging of nucleoproteins; abnormal genes cause obstacles to protein synthesis, which causes aging of life.
 
Endocrine function Some scholars believe that the decline of gonad, thyroid, adrenal, pituitary and other functions will induce rapid aging of the human body. For example, patients with thyroid disease are prone to premature aging. Moreover, the view that the aging caused by thymus atrophy has intensified has also attracted more and more attention of experts and scholars. Microcirculation disorder Due to the deposition of a large amount of metabolic waste in the human body and the adhesion of pathological metabolic residues, many microvascular systems are destroyed, resulting in narrowing or even closure of the lumen of blood vessels, leading to microcirculation and circulatory disturbances, limiting the exchange activities of life metabolism, thus Causes cell aging.

THE NATURAL WONDERS OF WILD TUALANG HONEY FROM INDONESIA

THE NATURAL WONDERS OF WILD TUALANG HONEY FROM INDONESIA
View Full Size

Tualang honey is a multifloral jungle honey, produced by a giant honey bee called the Apis dorsata found in South and Southeast Asia. The bee nests hang from the high branches of Tualang trees, the tallest of the tropical tree species, measuring about 88m (289ft) tall.

Apis dorsata bees are attracted to Tualang trees because it allows them to build their nests at the topmost branches, away from the potential dangers of humans and animals. A synergy is created from this need — the trees offer the bees a home, and the bees protect the trees from the threat of loggers. To humans, the honey that is created by the bees are far more valuable than the timber that can be made out of the Tualang trees.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF TUALANG HONEY

In recent years, there have been an increase in the number of studies published in medical databases regarding its potential health benefits.

It seems that Tualang honey has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-mutagenic, antitumor, and anti-diabetic properties, in addition to wound healing attributes. Some of its properties are similar to Manuka honey, which has been more researched over the years. Compared to Manuka honey, it is also more effective against some gram-negative bacterial strains in burn wounds.

HARVESTING THE HONEY

The trees grow in the thick of the jungle and are very tall — the tree trunk is very slippery, and the bees are huge and dangerous to those which encounter them. There is no easy way to gather honey – skilled honey hunters are required to do the job.

The hunting doesn’t happen like a regular apple harvesting. There is a ritual first, performed by the locals, with a mixed Islamic and Hindu symbolism. Singers chant ancient prayers to cajole, charm and calm the bees. On moonless night in February and March honey hunters climb the Tualang trees with smouldering torches, banging them on the branches above the nests. This creates a rain of fire, and as the sparks fall to the ground, the awakened and enraged bees take off in pursuit of the embers. The bees become disoriented and remain on the ground until dawn, leaving the nests unprotected. The honey hunters will then be able to harvest the honey – about 1,000 pounds of honey can be gathered from only one tree.

THE MYTH BEHIND HARVESTING TUALANG HONEY

A Hindu myth tells us about a handmaiden called Hitam Manis, or “Dark Sweetness”, who fell in love with the son of the reigning Sultan. Although he answered her love, they could not get married because she was a commoner. When the Sultan discovered their love he decided to kill her. She and some other maidens tried to escape and run away.  Alas, she was hit by a metal spear, straight into her heart. Hitam Manis and her friends turned into bees and flew into the forest.

Some years later, the prince went into the forest and saw some giant honey combs, high, in a Tualang tree. He climbed up the tree, discovered the sweet honey, and climbed down the tree, explaining that he had committed a sacrilege by using a metal implement to cut into the honeycomb, which had ultimately killed Hitam Manis. Later a “golden shower” made by the bees restored the prince back to life.

To this day no metal is used in harvesting the honey as a sign of respect to Hitam Manis.

At dusk the bees fly from their nests and defecate en masse, showering the surrounding ground and foliage with a golden rain. The nitrogen-rich bee faeces fertilises the Tualang tree that hosts the bees, giving it life as it did for the prince.
