Organic Plant Based Eaters are Healthier than meat eaters

Following an Organic Plant Based Diet “IS nutritionally superior to any other way of eating, because we know scientifically know that plant foods are loaded with nutrients to protect our health”

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, an evidence-based review showed that an Organic Plant Based Diet is associated with a lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease, lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes than meat eaters. 
Organic Plant Based Eaters also tend to have a lower body mass index, lower overall cancer rates and lower risk of chronic disease.

“A plant based diet doesn’t necessarily lead to weight loss -- especially if you eat out at restaurants often” 
“A lot of times, the only vegetarian dishes on the menu are cheesy and fattening” 

The most important thing for Plant Based Eaters is to make sure they are getting key nutrients, including protein, fatty acids, iron, zinc, iodine, calcium and vitamins D and B-12. 
Protein is essential for building muscle mass, amino function, fighting disease and healing, so make sure you’re getting protein in each meal throughout the day for optimum absorption. In order to get essential amino acids and nutrients, Plant Based Eaters must mix beans with grains.

Keep these tips in mind:
* There are numerous research-proven health benefits to following a Plant Based Diet, but only if you’re doing it properly and not substituting meat with processed or high-fat vegetarian products.
Make sure they are getting adequate nutrition.
Be aware of how much of your diet is made up of nuts as a source of protein, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. An ounce of nuts is about 180 calories and 5 grams of protein. You should be getting between 20 to 30 grams of protein per meal. They’re a healthy food, but high in fat and calories -- so be sure to round out your diet with a variety of vegetarian proteins.

Natural Medicine

Civilizations have been using herbal medicine and other natural resources to cure ailments and reduce the severity of symptoms for thousands of years. 

A person does not have to reject science or live a wholly holistic lifestyle to experience the benefits of herbal medicine. Below are just five benefits of natural medications.

Reduced Side Effects ...

Because herbal medicines are natural, the body often responds favorably to them. Unfortunately, this is often not the case with prescription medications. By replacing a prescription drug with a natural one, patients can slowly reduce or even eliminate the number of prescription-related side effects experienced on a daily basis.

Increased Savings ...

Prescription medications are expensive. Herbal medicine is often cheaper to produce because the medications are made from bountiful and easy-to-produce natural resources. A lower production cost often equates to a lower retail cost.

In addition to helping patients save money on the upfront costs of medications, herbal remedies also help teach individuals how to manage conditions and develop the tools and knowledge necessary to prevent illness and promote self-healing. Individuals can use this knowledge to lead healthier lifestyles and, hopefully, prevent very costly chronic conditions — which often come with sky-high medical bills, prescription costs and time off work — from developing in the future.

Self-Healing ...

Prescription drugs are often designed to mask symptoms and not necessarily cure the underlying condition. Herbal medicine, on the other hand, may forces individuals to listen to what the body is saying and to target the source of pain or discomfort. With assistance from a medical professional who works specifically in alternative medicine, a patient may get on the path to better health sooner than expected.

Empowerment ...

For many, the use of herbal medicine is more about taking control of personal health than anything else. A good natural healer will educate individuals about what the body needs and how to keep it healthy. The healer will not just hand a patient a prescription to hide the pain.

Improved Overall Health ...

Natural medicines come with several notable health benefits. For starters, natural cures often aim to identify and eradicate illness rather than suppress the symptoms. This approach is more likely to result in improved health than the use of pharmaceuticals.

Additionally, because herbal medicine contains vitamins, antibodies and other health-promoting agents, it serves to strengthen the overall body and not just combat illness. As a result, a person who chooses natural remedies versus prescription medications may be better able to fight infections than those who rely on Big Pharma.

Finally, natural medicine promotes gut health. It does this by enhancing digestion and nurturing an environment in which beneficial microbes can thrive.

Ginkgo Biloba for Mental Clarity

For hundreds or perhaps thousands of years, humans have used Gingko—the scientific name Ginkgo Biloba—as a herbal supplement for a variety of medical ailments and other supplemental uses. 

The medical usage of ginkgo can be traced back to medical texts written in China around 2800 BC. Since then, Gingko leaves have become known even in modern times for a wide variety of medicinal and supplemental uses, such as high blood pressure, tinnitus, altitude sickness, and improving memory. Gingko accomplishes these notable medical benefits by increasing cerebral and peripheral (i.e. to the extremities) blood flow in people who consume the leaves. 

There is still significant ongoing research into the benefits of ginkgo, particularly into whether ginkgo’s memory-enhancing effects can be an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s dementia in addition to acting as a memory supplement more generally. All in all, ginkgo is a powerful supplement for those seeking to tangibly improve the function of their memory.

We believe that the best supplemental and medical regimen incorporates not only modern science and technology but also one that incorporates lessons learned from our ancestors as well.
