Homemade Chocolate Hazelnut Lärabar
Ingredients
2 1/2 cups medjool dates, pitted
3/4 cup almonds, toasted
3/4 cups hazelnuts, toasted
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 cup dark chocolate, finely chopped (optional)
To toast the almonds and hazelnuts, place them on a baking sheet and bake at 400°F for ten minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a bowl or plate to cool.
Place dates in a food processor and pulse until a gooey semi-paste has formed (you want some bits of fruit, but not huge pieces). Empty the dried fruit into a large mixing bowl. Put the almonds, hazelnuts and cocoa powder in the food processor and pulse to coarse bits. You don’t want to make this a powder. Empty into the mixing bowl with the dried fruit. Knead the dried fruit and nuts together until combined and evenly distributed. Mix in the dark chocolate. Press the mixture into the bottom of an 8-inch or 9-inch square pan to about 1/2-inch thickness. Refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes. Invert the pan’s contents onto a cutting board and slice to desired size. Makes about a dozen 1.5- x 3.5-inch bars with a few odd pieces leftover.

Recommitting to Your Goals
It wasn’t that long ago that many of us resolved to make changes in our lives. What happened?
Consider some of the traits of those who keep new, healthier habits:
They believe in their ability to change. They know that keeping old habits and forming new ones are choices that are within their control.
They don’t blame themselves or make excuses. Instead of giving up after “falling off the wagon,” they dust themselves off and recommit to their goal. They learn from their mistakes, and resolve not to repeat them.
They concentrate on measurable results. They track their progress. 
They make change a long-term lifestyle decision. Diets don’t work. Abandoning unhealthy habits requires thinking long term.
If you’ve fallen out of the healthy habit of regular, holistic chiropractic care, it’s not too late!

So What is Cupping?

innetworkpros:

Cupping is a form of alternative therapy that has existed for over 2,500 years in traditional Chinese medicine. Despite its long history, it’s likely that you’ve never heard of “cupping” before—so, what is it?

There are two primary forms of cupping; in both, a cup is heated and pressed to the client’s body, creating suction. The skin is drawn around and under the cup, stimulating blood flow. In the more traditional method, a cotton boll is ignited and placed inside the cup, creating a flame, before the cup is pressed to the body—appropriately, this is known as fire cupping. (Note: the flame never comes in contact with the body; rather, it is used to warm the cup before application.) The second form of uses a suction cup and no flame, but works in the same way.

On average, cups are left on the body for about 10 minutes. Cupping does not merely affect the skin at a surface level; its effects are believed to reach about four inches deep. Therefore, it is beneficial in the clearance of toxins and blockages in the body. Cupping is also believed to increase blood flow and slow nervous system activity in addition to increasing the flow of qi (vital energy) by following the five meridian lines on the back, allowing these channels of life force to open up.

Cupping is used to treat a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Back/neck pain
  • Stiff muscles
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Migraines
  • Respiratory problems
  • Digestion problems

The Right Conditions
How come some people go from one cold to the next, getting all the bugs that “go around” and others don’t? It was this very question that prompted D. D. Palmer back in 1895 to pursue what we call chiropractic! 
We meet a lot of people who are fearful of germs. But germs are a lot like seeds. Ever try to start a lawn or plant a garden? It doesn’t just happen. The conditions have to be just right! Same with germs manifesting into disease. 
A common factor is a depressed immune system, and your nervous system affects the function of your immune system. Weakened by a compromised nervous system, your stomach, lungs, nose, ears and throat become the perfect “soil” for viruses, microbes and other bugs.
Restoring the integrity of the nervous system is what chiropractic does. It’s a simple idea that helps our clients enjoy better health, naturally.Click here NOW ===> Chiropractic Directory

  • Coconut Oil:
    Metabolizes food instead of storing it as fat. Using coconut oil instead of regular oil in cooking helps. Also, applying oil directly to problem areas on skin (acne, eczema, skin infections) won’t clog your pores, but will leave your skin feeling fresh and clean.
  • Salmon:
    Fish oils, such as salmon, can help to lower triglycerides in the blood and, therefore, reduce the amount of stored fat on your body. Omega-3 fatty acids, which can be found in pill form as well, help keep skin supple and soft.
  • Coffee:
    Revs your metabolism and helps you burn calories for up to three hours after consumption. Just don’t drink with cream or sugar, because that negates the burning effect. Also helps prevent diabetes, some forms of cancer, and depression. Warm coffee grounds can be combined with a bit of olive oil to form a paste to keep cellulite at bay. Rub paste in circular motion over problem areas, keeping it on for 10 minutes afterwards, two times a week, helps prevent cellulite from forming.
  • Avocados:
    This food is a natural diuretic that flushes out excess sodium and “water weight”. Say goodbye to bloating! It’s packed with vitamin B, which is a natural remedy for PMS. These babies also prevent wrinkling, by increasing the amount of collagen in your skin with glutathione. Use mashed avocado on your face, leave on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse off. 
  • Grapefruit:
    In one study, 100 volunteers who ate half a grapefruit before each meal for 12 weeks lost an average of 3.6 pounds without dieting. It blocks enzymes involved in fat and carbohydrate storage. It rejuvenates skin as well, by boosting cell renewal. Mix juice with sugar to make a paste and use on damp skin in the shower. 
  • Blueberries:
    Are good for anti-inflammation, including bloating. There have also been some studies done on rats that may indicate that blueberries and weight loss have a more direct link. These studies showed that blueberries could reduce belly fat, improve blood sugar, and lower cholesterol levels. The antioxidants in blueberries protect you from premature aging, as well. 
  • Macadamia Nuts:
    Keep your body young by protecting you from skin damage from aging and UV rays. It also increases metabolism by 10%, so eating this as a snack or using the oil for cooking helps you lose weight. The oil also doubles as a hair moisturizer of sorts. The consistency is much like the oils naturally produced in our hairs, so greasiness is not an issue. Massaging into scalp makes hair look soft and shiny.
  • Spinach:
    Spinach offers twice as much fiber as other greens, so eating this food helps you feel fuller longer. Fiber slows down digestion, which can prevent you from feeling hunger for longer if you had gone for, say, iceburg lettuce, instead of baby spinach in your salad. Cooked spinach still contains great nutrients, but overcooking can take those away. Spinach is loaded with lutein, which keeps your eyes healthy and sparkling.
