Oxygenating our Bodies with Iron

Version en español versão em portugues

Now we are aware that Calcium is very important for the body to keep strong bones (click here to read about calcium). Let’s learn a little more about iron. The main function of this mineral is the transportation of oxygen to many places of our bodies such as lungs, tissues and heart. Our bodies are efficient, economical and conservative when it comes to the usage of iron, that’s why a low quantity of iron is necessary, what makes of vegetal sources a good option for our consumption, since, the kind of iron present, has a lower percentage of absorption than the animal sources.

It’s important to know how to optimize the absorption of iron and the food that contains higher amounts of this mineral.

  1. Iron is best absorbed when consumed along with vitamin C (limonade is one great ally and alkalizing).
  2. The following foods are rich in iron and in micronutrients that improves its absorption (like vitamin C):
    • Flaxseed: 4,7 mg of iron per 100 grs. – Soak the seeds for at least 24 hours and wash them before consuming them blended.
    • Walnuts: 2 mg of iron per 100 grs. – Soak the nuts for at least 24 hours and wash them before consuming them.
    • Almonds: 3,1 mg of iron per 100 grs. – Soak the nuts for at least 24 hours and wash them before consuming them.
    • Kale: 0,5 mg of iron per 100 grs

As we can perceive, nuts and seeds are functional foods rich in minerals, so it is important to include in our diets those that are better for us (click here to read about expanding the perception about our bodies).

Potentiating Our Breathing

Version en español versão em portugues

Breathing is an essential part of our nutrition process, since the oxygen that goes into our lungs is transported to all the cells of our body, in order to do the cellular respiration process, that occurs in the mitochondria, and that, through the oxydation of the nutrients given to our bodies from our nutrition (click here to read about micronutrients and cell regeneration) produces the energy our body needs to keep our vital functions, and allow ourselves to take our creativity to action (click here to read about creativity from sublimation).

As we know our bodies better, we get to understand that there’s a more appropriate way of breathing in order to use 100% of our lung capacity, and increase our energy levels by eating just what is appropriate for us in our present moment (click here to read about nurtiring more by eating less). By following these simple steps we can potentiate our breathing process:

  1. Position: the most appropriate position for a more efficient breathing is being with our back straight, whether lying or sitting, with the shoulders open and the abdomen contracted.

  2. Inhalation: for a more efficient breathing, it is essential to inhale the air through the nose (for those who have had rhinitis and have gotten used to breathe throught the mouth, we gradually need to get used to breathe through the nose so the air can find its own way inside the nasal space click here to read about how I got rid of rhinitis), since our nose serve as a filter for the air we breathe.

  3. External movement: as the air enters the lungs, the external movement of expansion must begin in the upper abdomen (where the diaphragm is) and expand towards the sternum (expanding the chest and keeping the shoulders still), when the air comes out, the contraction movement begins in the sternum and ends in the upper abdomen.

  4. Exhalation: when we have totally expanded our sternum we can start exhaling slowly through the nose.

To increase our lung capacity, we can perform this complete nasal breathing by counting the seconds as we inhale, hold the air, exhale and wait to start the process again. As we increase the number of seconds in these processes, we perceive an increase in our tranquility and our personal and creative energy. The idea is to maintain this breath at all times, so we need to integrate this practice to perceive its effect in all areas of our lives.

Ángel

Micronutrients Part 2: Regenerating our cells

Version en español versão em portugues

Now that we understand that, in order to nourish ourselves better, we need to eat less but with more quality (click here to read the first part of the Micronutrients series), we can better understand how functional foods are integrated to enhance cell regeneration.

Our cells regenerate themselves if we give them the appropriate environment and time to do it, that is why we must avoid excesses, both of things considered “good” and those considered “bad”, all that our body really needs at a nutritional level (micro and macronutrients) must be consumed consciously in the appropriate measure for our own body, that is why it is so important to perceive the reactions that arise to each food that we consume separately, considering that there may be reactions from the moment that we smell it, until the moment it leaves the body completely (click here to read the article on expansion of nutritional consciousness).

Now, let’s imagine that every constructive habit we have (nourish ourselves, breathe better, do some physical activity, take care of our emotional health, sleep better) is promoting cell regeneration and maintaining the functioning of our body stable, and that every destructive habit we have (consume empty food, smoking, drinking excessively, staying emotional, breathing inadequately, being sedentary, sleeping poorly) is increasingly degenerating each of our cells and, consequently, our organs, causing alterations in the functioning of our body and leading ourselves to states in which we can not continue to be empowered of our own lives, because we are increasingly dependent on what helps us to recover our natural state of health (which we have created with our own destructive habits, and we can also reverse them).

Understanding better that we can assume the responsibility for really taking care of our body, as a main priority, since when having health we can perform better in what we enjoy doing, let’s see how functional foods, those full of essential nutrients that enhance our health, assist us in building an appropriate environment for our cells to continue their regeneration process bringing health to our body and higher levels of energy:

  1. CONTRIBUTION OF CLEAN ENERGY: By consuming natural foods, rich in micro and macronutrients, which are accepted by the cells, the cells can continue their process of obtaining what they need without having to fight what they can’t accept, therefore their energy is clean and focused on maintaining its functional process in our body. This is mainly done by fruits, vegetables, cereals, nuts and seeds, because of its high content of carbohydrates and healthy fats.

  2. GROWTH AND REGENERATION: While our body is growing, it needs material so that the cells can divide and form the necessary structures. When we reach adulthood, the cells need the proper material to keep themselves in constant regeneration and to renew dead cells of organs. like the skin. For growth and regeneration, the main foods are cereals, nuts, seeds and water (mineralized), due to their high content of proteins and minerals.

  3. REGULATION: Inside the cells, chemical reactions take place that need, especially, the presence of vitamins to occur. Here we find the need to consume fruits, nuts, vegetables and water (mineralized), due to its high content of vitamins and minerals.

I have a diet based on fruits, vegetables, cereals, nuts, germinated seeds, and the appropriate amount of mineralized water for my body, which is where I can find all the nutrients I need, the only thing I consume from animal sources are eggs (once or twice a month), they are my source of vitamin B12 (for now), since I prefer to feed properly than include any type of supplement in my diet. And you? On what do you base your diet? Does it work for you?

Ángel
