Most people would say that pain can be ignored or overruled, especially if it’s necessary to persevere and complete whatever it is you need to do. Like the professional athlete who has one cortisone injection after another in his sprained ankle just so he can get out there and not let the team down. If you’ve ever had a high ankle sprain you’ll know that cortisone shots only numb the pain, and moderately at that. It still hurts like heck, but you’re able to wince and grimace through it and get on with what’s expected of you.

Humans are biologically designed to be omnivores, and all of us are in fact beings that obtain our nutrition by eating a wide variety of foods, and digesting both plant and animal matter. The eating of them comes quite naturally, comfortably, and enjoyably for the majority of us, but when it comes to eliminating the waste that these foods become after digestion – we don’t all do so equally naturally or comfortably at all.

Yes Wellness Blog - Discussing Dietary Plant-Based Sources of Vitamin D for Vegans

Choosing to adhere to a vegan diet is now widely accepted as coming with extensive health benefits, along with being an environmentally responsible choice given the staggeringly harmful effects of large scale livestock agriculture in the world today. Even if it’s not for you, we’d all do well to understand that you can get nearly all of the same necessary nutritional value from a vegan diet that you’d get from a standard one.

Most people have a favourite colour, or at least one that’s more visually agreeable to their eye as compared to others. It’s suggested that people who would choose black, for instance, are supposed to be more artistic and sensitive, while choosing white is for those who are especially organized and logical. If yellow’s tops for you then you will apparently enjoy learning and sharing your knowledge with others.

Yes Wellness Blog - The Bio Tune Up: Natural Ways to Increase Metabolism for Weight Loss

There’s that age old expression, ‘time waits for no man.’ Not only is it especially true, but it really might be more appropriately phrased as ‘time waits for no one’ as the inevitability of the passing of time applies equally to either gender. When it comes to your physiology, you’ll hear people lament about the ‘ravages’ of time as we all see ourselves drifting further and further away from the prime of our youth.

Yes Wellness Blog - Saying No to the ‘Sugar Blues’: The Superiority of Stevia

An ‘eye opener’ is any piece of information that meets 3 specific criteria; A) it’s new to you, B) its proven to be factual, and C) it leads you to have a new and typically opposite understanding related to some aspect of the subject matter. In 1975, American researcher and writer William Dufty’s book ‘Sugar Blues’ was published. It was considered to be an eye opener as it detailed the very nefarious nature of the refined white sugar industry and how white sugar is a supremely addictive and harmful substance that humans should ideally NEVER ingest.

Yes Wellness Blog - Apple Cider Vinegar: Fabulously Fermented, Superstar Solution

Many people will associate vinegar as that perfect taste bud turner for adding to their French fries. That’s but only one of the many types of vinegars, all of which are produced by a fermentation process where ethanol is broken down by acetic acid bacteria. White, or malt, vinegar as that type is referred to, is very generic in its applications, which range from flavouring all the way to cleaning and adhesive removal. Turns out that acetic acid stuff is quite something!

Yes Wellness Blog - Tip-Top Tummy: Far-Reaching Benefits of Optimal Digestion

Eating is one of life’s most enjoyable pleasures for a human being, both for the nourishment and sensory experiences of it. By the time we reach adulthood most of us have very developed tastes and preferences for certain types of foods, but that also typically comes with some unhealthy eating habits. Some of them you can be dealt with in the interest of continuing to enjoy certain foods (and ingredients within them) in moderation, but ingesting certain foods and ingredients may inhibit the digestive functioning of your stomach and intestines.

You may or not be a believer in the green superfoods mania that’s taken hold across North America, but there’s no debating this fact; humans have evolved to be omnivores, and our lack of incisor teeth (among other indicators) is evolutionary proof that we are more designed to be herbivores and frugivores than carnivores within the omnivorous spectrum.

Yes Wellness Blog - The Best Red: Eating to Nourish Your Blood Your body is comprised of a collection of individual parts and components that all work together in collective unison very impressively. It’s quite fair to say, however, that none of them are as integral to the others overall quite like the blood. That’s because it’s always on the move, being pumped out and circulated by your heart to deliver all the sustenance the organs, muscles, sinews and even bones need to be at their best.
