Early signs of ovarian cancer

Survivors describe ovarian cancer as the cancer that whispers. Looking back, they realize they were sick for 2 years or more before they were diagnosed – and the symptoms were there all along.

Here are four common symptoms of ovarian cancer, based on the experience of survivors:

  • bloating (lie on back and press to see whether you can feel any lumps or mass)
  • urinary changes (example: needing to pee more often or during the night)
  • difficulty eating or feeling full quickly; sometimes losing weight quickly
  • pelvic or abdominal pain; sometimes indigestion, stomachaches
  • other: tiredness that doesn’t go away; back pain; constipation
  • a clue: Listen to your gut – respond to any exceptional dips or peaks in what’s normal for your body when they happen over a 1- or 2-month period – “a shift that lasts over time” is how one doctor puts it

Anti-aging foods

Here’s a personal short list from an article about foods that fight aging:

  • cacao beans for “cocoa flavinol”, which reverses cognitive aging (delicious ground up in smoothies or sesame seed “chocolate truffles”)
  • blueberries and other brightly coloured fruits and veggies to reduce inflammation and stress
  • almonds and other foods for magnesium
  • tomatoes for phytochemicals and antioxidants
  • flaxseeds to reduce cellular inflammation and omega-3s (Grind fresh)
  • walnuts for omega-3s and to improve memory and learning skills (Remember the shape of a whole walnut and the shape of the human brain – makes sense they’re linked for good brain health)
  • natto (Japanese fermented soybeans from Asian markets) for vit K2
  • spinach for antioxidants and phytochemicals (Eat it fresh – it loses 50% of antioxidants after 4 days)
  • chia seeds for omega-3s and anti-inflammatory properties
  • green tea for antioxidants and better brain connectivity
  • black beans – a top anti-aging anti-inflammatory food (also other legumes/beans like pinto beans and aduki beans etc.)
  • onions and garlic for those who can handle them (I can’t)
  • turmeric is powerful – take with coconut oil and black pepper to increase bio-availability – concentrated anti-inflammatory and antioxidants, good for memory
  • black pepper for piperine (healthy brain function) and antioxidants

Good to have these several times a week if not daily. For the original article, including non-veg foods, see Foods that fight aging.

The alkaline diet

This guy sure looks young after his decade on eating an alkaline diet!

Plus, I really like the idea that articles like this are getting exposure on Yahoo news and the like. Yey!

To eat more alkaline, the things to replace are: all dairy, alcohol, meat, coffee, sugar, gluten… and peanut butter. The day starts with a green smoothie – a tasty mix of greens and fruit.

The article includes basic pointers for doing a one-week cleanse. And then you find you stay on the diet because you like it!
