The Raw Food Diet: A Beginner’s Guide and Review by Taylor Jones, RD

The raw food diet has been around since the 1800s, but has surged in popularity in recent years.

Its supporters believe that consuming mostly raw foods is ideal for human health and has many benefits, including weight loss and better overall health.

However, health experts warn that eating a mostly raw diet may lead to negative health consequences.

This article reviews the good and bad of the raw food diet, as well as how it works.

The raw food diet, often called raw foodism or raw veganism, is composed of mostly or completely raw and unprocessed foods.

A food is considered raw if it has never been heated over 104–118°F (40–48°C). It should also not be refined,

Don’t Wax in a Waxing Moon Phase by Maria Mercedes

Don’t Wax in a Waxing Moon Phase   

Knowing what to do during a waxing moon phase has been critical to manifesting the life of my dreams. But during a waxing moon, there are certain things you should Not do.  Do you know what they are?

WAXING MOON PHASE MEANING:

waxing moon phase

The moon cycles every 28 days from New to Full to New again.  The phases of the Lunar Cycle listed in order consists of New Moon, Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter,Waning Crescent until we have a new, New Moon.

The period between New and Full represents growth while the moon is waxing or growing.  During the waxing moon phase, the gravitational pull and angle with the sun transitions to reflect more and more light each day.

The period between Full and New is called waning or disseminating.  When the moon is waning, the night sky is getting darker and darker as less light reflects on the moon.

Waxing Moon Phase No No #1:

DON’T Start a Restrictive Diet, but DO Start an Exercise Regimen

Make no mistake- I’m not saying that you should eat cookie dough for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!  I’m just saying that isn’t the time for limitations and constraints.  Obviously, consult your medical professional and always follow their instructions.  I’m just encouraging to align your timing with the moon’s energy.

The waxing moon intention should be on gaining health, increasing strength, and growing healthy habits.  Try to expand your workout routine, or increasing your daily number of steps.  This is a great time to learn new recipes (healthy ones if you’re trying to lose weight.)  

Since the moon is growing this is literally a time for expansion and progression.  I like focusing on promoting healing with healthy foods, exercises, and habits I can add to my life.

So, when should you diet?  Never… Just kidding.  I recommend starting diets while the moon is waning because the lunar energy is conducive to constricting and reducing but again, consult your doctor.

No No #2:  DON’T Wax, but DO Cut hair to encourage Growth

You heard me right.  The waxing moon says that don’t wax, shave, or pluck in a first quarter moon (if you can get away with it).  Hair grows faster during a waning moon.  It is as through the growth of the moon is acting as a magnet to grow hair.  Sounds crazy? Well check out the farmer’s almanac for the best days to cut hair to slow growth.  You will quickly notice that they correspond with the Waning moon- not the Waxing moon.

The waxing moon phase is very clearly the best time to cut to encourage growth. This applies to plants, hair, nails etc.  Waxing moon phase is a great time to trim nails to promote healthy growth. I recommend creating waxing moon rituals of self-care such as, facemasks, pedicures, and bubble baths! We can always use more self-care!

I don’t know about you, but I want hair on my head, not on my legs.  So, if you are so suited that you can wear long pants for a few days, shave, wax and pluck during the waning moon instead.  When I can I get on a three-week waning moon calendar rotation I notice I need to shave my legs less because I have less hair.

No No #3:  DON’T

MAKE AMERICA CHILL AGAIN MEDITATION IS THE FASTEST GROWING WELLNESS ACTIVITY IN THE US By Sangeeta Singh-Kurtz

The wellness industry—which has its roots in niche environments like grocery store health food aisles, and movements like clean eating—has ballooned this past decade into a $4.2 trillion juggernaut.

It’s so robust that established companies in adjacent industries—weight loss, health food, and beauty—are refashioning themselves to better fit into the wellness machine. The longtime weight loss giant is formerly known as Weight Watchers, for instance, recently rebranded itself as “WW,” alongside the new tagline “Wellness That Works.™”

Meanwhile, the wellness industry bellwether Goop continues to expand overseas while raising millions from investors. Other industry sectors, such as skincareand supplements, are also swelling, alongside wellness-related treatments and activities.

A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) looked at several of these activities in a new report that examines the of the rising use of yoga, meditation, and chiropractors among US adults over 18. The study identifies those three pursuits as the most popular forms of “complementary health,” which the report describes as the “use of holistic or unconventional medicine with mainstream Western medicine for health and wellness.”

Across the board, researchers found that substantially more Americans engaged in these activities in 2017 than in 2012. Yoga is the most popular, and spiked from 9.5% in 2012 to 14.3% in 2017, while the use of a chiropractor increased slightly from 9.1% to 10.3% over the 5-year period.

Meanwhile, the percentage who practice meditation increased from 4.1% in 2012 to 14.2% in 2017. An explosion of mindfulness and meditation startups—from Headspace to Calm to Aura—have been Wall Street and Silicon Valley sweethearts, pulling in round upon round of successful investments. The practice itself has been touted as a secret sauce by many high-profile celebrities, athletes, and business people.

More women than men participated in all three activities, with twice as many women taking yoga than men. The report also gave a limited racial

Dangers of black henna

A floral black henna tattoo being painted onto a hand

If you see a shop or stall offering to paint black tattoos onto your skin, don’t be tempted to get one. It could leave you scarred for life and put you at risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction.

Often called “black henna” or “neutral henna” tattoos, these patterns painted onto your skin are readily available abroad. They may also be available in the UK, at festivals and fairs, and to buy online.

But the black paste used in these temporary tattoos may contain high levels of a chemical dye so powerful and toxic that it is illegal to use it on the skin in this way.

Risks of ‘black henna’

The risks of black henna lie in the paste’s ingredients – specifically, a chemical called paraphenylenediamine (PPD).

Although PPD can lawfully be used in hair dyes in the EU, this use is strictly controlled.

Dr Chris Flower, director general of the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association, explains: “PPD is safely and legally used in permanent hair dyes where clear instructions are given, and where the maximum level is controlled by law. But black henna often contains PPD at high levels, to give a dark colour quickly.

“When applied to the skin in the form of a black henna temporary tattoo, PPD can cause chemical burns and lead to allergic reactions.”

How to tell if it is real henna

Real henna, which is generally safe to use, is an orange colour, with a red or brown tint to it.

Dr Flower says that everyone should be suspicious of black “tattoos”.

“Real henna is never black, but is orange-brown,” he explains. “Any very dark temporary tattoo should be treated with caution.”

Lisa Bickerstaffe at the British Skin Foundation agrees. “Check the colour if a product is described as
