Surprising Reasons to Give Up Wheat

 Is wheat bad for you? Here’s the quick backstory: The modern version of wheat is a far cry from the ancient plant. In fact, the newer, high-yield wheat we’ve been eating since the 1980s is full of genetic changes that seem to inflame our bodies, cause our guts to leak, and trigger autoimmune diseases. To figure out some of the strange health problems associated with wheat, we flipped through the New York Times best-selling book Wheat Belly, and spoke with its author, cardiologist William Davis, MD.
But is a wheat-free diet really for you? Regardless of whether you suffer from celiac disease—an ailment triggered by wheat’s gluten—or not, many experts now believe anyone giving up not just gluten, but wheat altogether, could enjoy tremendous weight loss and health benefits. “It means making soups, salad dressings, and dinners yourself, the most assured way to avoid problem ingredients,” says Dr. Davis. “Wheat Belly also discourages people from resorting to the unhealthy gluten-free replacement foods.”

What Is Fascia And Why Is It So Important To Keep It Healthy?

Your fascia – the interconnective tissue beneath your skin – has often been called the “missing link” in modern medicine. All your muscles, bones, arteries, veins and cells LIVE INSIDE this connective tissue. Science has proven that fascial restrictions are often the cause of skeletal misalignments that result in joint pain, headaches, chronic pain and conditions like depression, TMJ and fibromyalgia.

Unfortunately, most forms of exercise, including yoga, neglect the fascia. They don’t nourish or hydrate this interconnective tissue. In these classes, award-winning yoga instructor Brett Larkin guides you through the movements science has proven your fascia needs to be healthy: unprogrammed movement, biomorphic movement, undulation and variations on Yin yoga to work DIRECTLY with your fascia for optimal health and well-being. No prior movement experience or knowledge of the fascia is required. All you need is your body — and awareness.

Foods You Should Never Keep In The Fridge

Often we believe that keeping our food in the fridge is the best way to maintain freshness and longevity. While this is the case for many day-to-day food items, there are several common foods that are far better left out of the refrigerator, both for taste and nutritional value. Cold temperatures can actually accelerate the decomposition process in some foods and cause them to lose their original flavor and vital enzymes. Keeping these items in the fridge won’t cause any serious harm, yet being aware of the most beneficial ways to store your food will help to prosper your own health, as well as help to lower food waste. We are all globally responsible for 4 billion tons worth of food wastage per year. So taking small precautionary measures to understand food storage can have a bigger impact than simply having great tasting tomatoes on hand!

Here are the top ten items that are best left out of your refrigerator.
