The Electrifying Power of a HUG

By Scott Mathias CHHC.AADP

The health-giving qualities of a simple hug cannot be overemphasised as a remedy for illness and emotional blues. The electrifying power of a hug can be measured by an instant increase in chemicals attributed to happiness and joy.

The Electrifying Power of a HUG

A study dating back to 2016 suggests that when we are exposed to stress, our bodies react through the production of the hormone cortisol. This hormone shows up when we’re stressed, and effectively slows down the actual healing process while it creates “flashbulb” memories of circumstances that we want to avoid in the future. When we experience social rejection, cortisol is released and its effects include making us more willing to make new friends and build a new connection.

But when the Human body comes into contact with another Human body at the skin level magic literally happens.

The skin is not only the largest Human organ, but its nerve endings also act as a sensory radar capable of picking up ‘good’ and ‘not so good’ signals from the local environment.

Research also suggests that the skin is directly linked to feelings of love and joy linked to glands like the hypothalamus and pituitary because of their sensory capabilities. It literally feels good when one is hugged or one comes into ‘skin to skin’ contact with another Human.

What the experts say:

A study undertaken by Gouin et al., 2010 suggests when most of us see people in distress, our empathy kicks into gear and drives us to reach out both figuratively and literally. We instinctively want to comfort the wounded, whether they are victims of terror, disaster, or everyday hassles of heartache or stress. Once you reach out and offer a hand, a pat on the back, or a supportive embrace, you set in motion the body’s own means to a natural high, oxytocin production. 

Psychologytoday.com says Oxytocin is a neurochemical that helps us build trust, that somewhat “dissolves” short-term memory, and that makes you feel, well, warm all over. Not only that, but researchers have found that the presence of oxytocin actually speeds the physical healing of wounds. Studies show that even a brief touch of the hand from someone who cares can start your oxytocin pumping.

Just in case you don’t know what a hug is: A hug is a form of endearment, universal in human communities, in which two or more people put their arms around the neck, back, or the waist of one another and hold each other closely. If more than two people are involved, it is referred to as a group hug.

So reach out now and HUG someone and both of your lives will be affected profoundly. BIG HUGS to all of you in need of them right now!!

A Very Simple Way for Over 50’s to Live A Healthy Life

by Scott Mathias CHHC. AADP

Living a healthy life over 50 – 24/7 is a natural right, not a privilege but it does require making some meaningful choices.

This means that sickness of any kind is not an inevitability for the over 50’s despite what you might hear or see in the media or what your doctor might tell you.

95% of Planet Earth’s population suffers from some kind of illness* (The Lancet)

Does this tell us that sickness – pain, chronic illness, diabetes, and mental illness are created by poor choices?

The foundation of 24/7 healthy living is GOOD GUT FUNCTION. It is as simple as that. What you eat will either kill you or heal you. A healthy gut will support you in your dreams for a long happy, pain-free and productive life.

If you put the wrong food in then the gut will not be able to release nutrients into the small intestine for optimum absorption. The quality of gut biome will decrease and, over time, the gut itself will go into a state of paralysis, which is what I suffered with, for more than 45 years.

Here’s a very simple way for over 50’s to live a healthy life 24/7.

All it takes is an INFORMED CHOICE!  What do I mean by that?

Making different food choices based on the natural decline of metabolic efficiency rather than continuing to eat the food you have always eaten will almost 100% support your healthy dream.

Take diabetes for instance. How to avoid going down this rather dim and dark rabbit hole is definitely about CHOICE.

US-based Dr. Gabriel Cousins is at the forefront of remedial healing research and treatment of this debilitating disorder.

See how Type 2 diabetes sufferers turned their conditions around in this now-famous study undertaken by Dr. Cousins.

Sky-high blood sugar levels plummeted and vitality increased.

Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days

Your CHOICE of food will determine the nature and quality of your micro-biome, which is conservatively estimated to be around 38,000,000,000 – that’s 38-trillion living microbes inside and on your body.

Without good gut function, gut biome cannot be produced. Biome ‘harvesting’ that takes place when you eat green food is also impacted.  The surface of all green living foods is covered in billions of bacteria needed by the gut to function well.

Sheena Cruickshank is a laboratory researcher whose specialty is gut biome and human waste. Check this video out and once completed I know you will have a better idea about how your food choices impact your gut efficiency.

Eat Yourself Healthy – Laboratory Researcher Sheena Cruickshank

My own ‘gut paralysis’ was due to poor food and lifestyle CHOICES. For a long time, I didn’t know any better until I was forced to educate myself. One day, after a chronic near-fatal reflux attack, I woke up to the need to create a different healthy life dream.

Along with making dietary changes talked about in both videos, I also used green papaya powder to help rehabilitate and mobilize my gut muscles once again.

That was 15-years ago and I have never looked back and neither should you.

Make a living CHOICE now, so your 24/7 healthy life dream becomes a reality.

Vegan Waffles Made With Almond Meal or Pulp

One of our most popular breakfast dishes Vegan Waffles made with Almond Meal or Pulp.  Vegan waffles with cashew cream and fresh fruit.

As we make our own fresh almond milk every day, we tend to have loads of almond meal or pulp left over, so what do you do with it?  First of all… it does FREEZE very well so don’t throw it away.  You can make waffles and waffle base fruit baskets of course!

More people are making their own Almond Milk and it’s so easy to do and a lot less expensive than store bought almond milk.  It also removes the need for preservatives that cause lots of digestive problems for many people.

Here’s our recipe for a simple way to use up the leftover meal PLUS the almond milk recipe is also included so there’s no excuses.

We had a friend drop by this week for lunch and although he’s not vegan, he was looking forward to some tasty raw food.  What he didn’t expect was to be eating a Raw Vegan Pepperoni Pizza.

This is one of our favourite meals and is very easy to make.  Make several bases and keep in an airtight container in the fridge.

The bases also make great flour-free ‘wraps’, so play around with this recipe.  Add flax seeds for a crunchier base.  Design your own base ingredients eg fresh coconut meat can be purchased from the freezer section of a good health food store/crocery.

Every day I come across articles from experts in the Health and Wellness Industry, hi-lighting the many and varied health problems which abound. Everyone is affected to some degree or another, by illness.  If not in their own body, we sure as heck have family members or friends who are struggling with weight problems, cancers, skin conditions and stress.  And who hasn’t felt depressed at some time in their lives?

While some suffer more than others, there are solutions out there that allow EVERYONE to live a fit and healthy life, should they so desire!

The global success of Australian businessman Joe Cross, creator of Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, is testament to the thirst for knowledge around self-healing through plant based proteins and, in Joe’s case, JUICING.  Whilst neither Scott nor I advocate juicing on a long-term basis, it is extremely advantageous to ensure that all the fibre is included in your morning juice.  There’s some tips to help you understand the do’s and don’ts of juicing in Scott’s blog post a few weeks back – 5 Reasons Why Juicing Is Unhealthy.

Scott Mathias, Clare Darwish @ Noosa International Food & Wine FestivalAs we are now in our early 60’s, we have a much gentler approach to staying healthy.  Our breakfast each day consists of a freshly made tropical fruit salad (because we live in a sub-tropical biosphere here in Noosa, papayas, pineapples, mangoes, strawberries, blueberries are always readily available).

We make up a nut milk using organic cashews which, when soaked for 30mins to 1hr, make a delicious ‘milk’ when blended with water – 1 cup of cashews/2 cups of water.  It keeps well in the fridge so you can make larger quantities if you have a family to feed.

Lunch is when we have our main meal and this always includes a freshly made salad with lots of leafy greens, tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, spring onions, pepitas, pine nuts, olives and whatever else we have on hand.  A nutritious and delicious ‘cheesy’ topping is made by blending Nutritional Yeast, Australian Lake Salt and either Brazil or Macadamia Nuts in a ‘dry’ blender.  This also stores really well in a glass jar in the fridge, so make a good quantity… it doesn’t go off.  Great to add to soups and sandwiches as well.

In the evening, we will have a light snack of perhaps home made seed crackers with avocado or home made peanut butter or often we just snack on nuts.

For most people, our ‘diet’ would probably seem scarily light as we only eat about 20% of the volume of food we used to ingest when we were both much heavier than we are now. Scott lost nearly 25kgs and I shed 14 kilograms.

IMG_2560We never count calories and we don’t have a set of bathroom scales either… there’s no need when you know you’re eating good, clean, vegan cuisine each and every day.  Nor do we take any supplements or vitamins.  Everything comes from the food we eat.  A topical spray of magnesium chloride after showering keeps muscles relaxed and it’s also great to rub into the soles of tired feet to ensure a good night’s rest.

A lot of stress is removed when you know you’re healthy inside and out. We just need to look at our reflection in the mirror each morning, and tune in to our bodies to know if we’re lacking anything.  Although we don’t have cravings for certain foods, a notion to eat a certain food, whether sweet or savoury, is usually a sign that our body is after the mineral or vitamins contained in the food eg. cacao has high levels of magnesium so that’s my excuse when I reach for the raw chocolate treats we always have on hand. 🙂

Thankfully, Scott and I are often complimented on our glowing skin and clear complexions.  That’s the VEGAN GLOW … and it’s freely available to everyone.  Simply eat clean, organic or spray-free (where possible) and don’t overload your system by over consumption.

TIP:  If you can’t find organic or spray-free fruit and veggies, simply soak them in a little Apple Cider Vinegar to kill off any harmful pesticides.

By the way, you don’t need to be 100% raw nor do you need to remove cooked food altogether.  Why not make a commitment to be 50/50, 60/40 or 70/30.  A plate full of uncooked, wholesome veggies alongside a warm vegetarian pattie or vegetable curry is just fine.  It won’t take you long to discover that you don’t die if you don’t eat meat, wheat, dairy, grains, processed foods and white sugar.  You’ll survive a lot longer and feel a lot fitter if you don’t destroy the nutrients in your food through cooking.  In fact, you’ll soon realise eating this way has many, many more benefits that I can post in a blog.  If you try it, you’ll know – if you don’t try, you won’t know.  It’s as simple as that.

How To STOP Indigestion and Bloating

The most common ‘symptom’ customers and clients complain about is, without doubt… Indigestion, Acid Reflux and Bloating. What causes this? The short answer is the body is unable to break down proteins properly. A highly acidic system will also cause problems with poor digestion.

If unchecked, more chronic conditions like IBS, Coeliac, Crohns, Diverticulitis and other inflammations of the lower intestinal tract appear. These can take a lot longer to repair. If you really want to stop symptoms like indigestion, acid reflux and bloating deteriorating into more chronic dis-ease, then do something about it now!!

I am convinced being HEALTHY really does mean HEAL – THY (and you can guess the last part) … SELF!  We each have the capacity to self-heal once we acknowledge that we also had the capability to make ourselves ill in the first place. We don’t ‘get’ diabetes, we don’t ‘get’ acid reflux, we don’t ‘get’ bloating… we CREATE it by eating foods that contain too much gluten which is a protein found in most processed foods like bread, cereals, prepared meals that we lift off the supermarket shelf and pop into a microwave or oven to reheat. Is it any wonder we are a sick planet? Check out this short video that I recorded for you this morning…

This is what GLUTEN looks like (see pic below) and whilst it is indeed a good protein full of vitamins and minerals, the wheat it is derived from has been hybridised so much over the last 50-60 years that it no longer resembles the original wheat germ we used to call the ‘staff of life’ ie BREAD!

Wheat Gluten - Vegetarian Mock Duck
Gluten is often used in imitation meats (such as this mock “duck”) to provide supplemental protein and variety in vegetarian diets.

So, what can we do about this? Since gluten is in almost everything we buy in a packet, we need to choose very wisely. Thankfully, there are some excellent gluten-free products available now from artisan bakers and organic health food stores that are increasingly seen in our towns and cities today. USE THEM! The more people who start shopping at farmers markets and health food stores, the quicker the bigger supermarket chains will start to change their habits. After all, if they don’t attract customers, they won’t survive.

The choice is yours and yours alone. Antacids will bring short term relief but cleaning up the diet and getting the gut working properly is by far the best way to enjoy good health and life in general.

To your continued good health!

Scott 🙂

If you’re not a Facebook Fan yet, you won’t have seen this short video posted by my good friend Jon Gabriel today!

Last week, I spent time recording a RAW Food ‘bread and milk’ class for his subscribers and he was blown away by what I shared with him.  Here are some testimonials from the people who are using Jon’s approach, along with a balanced diet.

As well as being a great role model himself, Corky’s story highlights the benefits of having the right mentor when you’re going through one of life’s many challenges. One of the biggest challenges for a huge number of people is Weight Loss and despite having the will to drop a few or a lot of pounds and inches, still too many people find themselves stuck. Listen to Tiffany’s story – a 33yr old single mum with 5 children who went through a traumatic health scare. What a transformation!

If either of these stories connect with you, check out Jon’s website and learn how he himself lost 220lbs over 10 years ago and has managed to maintain his current weight ever since. This may be the solution you’ve been looking for!

THE GABRIEL METHOD

I know from my own weight loss experience through eating lots of healthy nutrients that I get from eating live plant proteins… BUT… there’s more to this than just changing our diet. Jon helps his followers to visualise how they want to be, look and feel.

“We do not struggle to be free, it’s the absence of struggle that leads us to freedom”.

I too, encourage you to try The Gabriel Method!!

THE GABRIEL METHOD

There is no longer any reason to be unhealthy.  The solution is in your hands.  Change your food intake and change your life one mouthful at a time.

Live a long, prosperous, healthy and painfree life now 🙂
