I once did a video talking about my husband’s diet, how he eats a traditional Indonesian diet of white rice, vegetables and some sort of animal or vegetable protein three times a day, everyday. Someone wrote me asking what my opinion of white rice is, is it really all that unhealthy as they say it is in the West, or is it ok to eat it as part of a healthy diet? Half the world’s population eats a rice-based diet (similar to what my husband’s eats), and they certainly aren’t eating brown rice or other whole grain rices, so is white rice all that bad? Here’s my opinion!!
I understand where people are coming from when they think about doing a fast or cleanse after staying in a hospital, but I actually don’t recommend doing any fasting or cleanses until someone has fully recovered. In today’s video I go over my opinion on this matter and give other suggests for what people can do instead to get healthy right after being released from the hospital.
I received a request to give my opinion on the herbal and boxed cleanses that are sold online, at health food stores, and pharmacies. Are they really safe, worth the money, and are there any that I recommend?
Last week I did a video giving suggestions for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Someone posted a question about my opinion of psyllium husk powder. Many doctors and natural health care practitioners recommend psyllium husk powder as a fiber supplement for those that have IBS, chronic constipation or diarrhea, which in my opinion may or may not help! In today’s video I go over this, plus give some suggestions for those that want to try a fiber supplement, whether it be psyllium husk powder or something else like chia seeds or freshly ground flax seed powder, I talk about what is available and how to take it.
Someone posted this question on one of my videos last week, plus they asked how this would affect how we raised our daughter. Great question and I am happy to respond to this!!
