Common Questions and Answers about Healthy vegetarian japan


Avatar n tn D In answer to your question, yes, a vegetarian diet is VERY healthy, but (as with any diet) you need to make it as varied as possible and to learn what foods contain the nutrients you need. You should be able to get everything you need in abundance without ever needing to use multi-vitamins.

469720 tn?1388149949 After Tim Russerts death, I must have received 5-10 question a day feom concerned patients and friends. They all wanted to know if they needed a scan. People who were relatively healthy wanted to know if they were going to die suddenly. The following NY times article does a good job of painting different sides of the story.
476246 tn?1418874514 For almost 10 yrs I have been vegetarian, living on a healthy whole food diet. No drink, no smoke, hardly any sugar nor dairy products. I believe it has slowed down the process. I don't easily grab medication, not even for a headache. Prefer to drink more water and to take a nap, instead. Well, I don't know how I will react to treatment, when it gets that far... Time will tell, but I'm not afraid. I admire this Forum, it's a really nice loving atmosphere. Am glad I fell onto it.
572651 tn?1531002957 Nice post! We had a thread a long time ago about how diet affects symptoms. I've been a vegetarian for ten years or so and I've found, personally, that overall I feel better and healthier. My dude is also veggie and he says since he's been veggie, his allergies have gone away and he's sick less often, if ever. I was actually vegan for a couple years, too, and it didn't make much of a difference from being vegetarian.
Avatar f tn Last year, she weighed 90 pounds and maintained the weight. She exercised regularly and ate very healthy. Then that winter (2010), she lost 7 pounds over about a month for no reason. She was eating the same and still exercising regularly. Oddly enough, a month later she began gaining weight...she put on about 15 pounds in just a month. She is the healthiest eater and exercises.
233616 tn?1312790796 Vegetarians get very little K-2 since the vegetable form is mostly unabsorbable, yeilding only about a 10% contribution to the bloodstream. Many people assume a vegetarian diet is more healthy, but it has signifigantly higher incidence of deficiaency related diseases. Obviously it has benefit to heart and so forth, but it's not the pantacea many think it is. K-2 is a different vitamin is the thing to remember. Just like thiamine is not niacin is not biotin etc.....
Avatar n tn folks FOLKS, calm yourselves, it's just a mild (MILD) interest cause life IS full of dangers (i hike in the mountains with bears and mountain lions everywhere) and if i CAN do my little bit to be healthy i will ! besides, it's fun to find new ways to be healthy and it makes me happy to make little (sometimes big) changes for the better. ok the microwave thing is tough to give up, but the other day i made a really healthy meal and saved some for the next day.
Avatar n tn Rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriasis, and psoriatic arthritis are exceptionally rare in China, Indonesia, and Africa, where the populations consume vegetarian or near-vegetarian diets. 18, 19 The same is found with lupus. Whereas African blacks rarely develop this disease, it has a high prevalence in the United States, especially among black women. 20 This cannot be because of heredity or racial differences.
476246 tn?1418874514 I have been vegetarian for a decade now, and eat a healthy balanced all organic diet, with lots of natural sources of B's. Until 2 months ago, I had all the energy I needed and maybe even more. It just kind of hit me over the head one day. Extreme fatigue from one day to the other and this has been going on for 2 months now. That's why I went to the doc... He ran some blood tests, got suspicious of hep b or c and the hep c came back positive... Good luck to you, too....
Avatar m tn A study out of Harvard School of Public Health found just a half serving of soy per day was enough to slash sperm count by 40 percent in healthy males. Large amounts of soy can drastically reduce testosterone, according to a study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition; researchers found that men who had 120 mg of soy a day saw the decrease. ( I said Soy wasn't good for men and woman for a number of years! Only fermented soy is OK! Soy is in everything.
Avatar n tn meds., i.e. healing foods. Being a vegetarian, I believe that food hold a big key to our health. Not suggesting that they should be used in place of therapy, I don't believe that they should. We all know in fact many foods have cancer preventative properties and immune boosting abilities etc.
Avatar m tn I don't take any 'extras' anytime.. just choose to eat healthy, but I would like to know, for sure, who does one take notice of? I have a friend down here who has been taking all sorts of vitamins, potions, teas, flaxseed oil and cottage cheese, and eats only organic fruit and veggies, but her cancer has recently returned, and she has just come out of hospital after having a 'bowel by-pass' operation following an obstruction. Thanks again for the article... it's good to get all information.
Avatar f tn When I got pregnant the first time, I had severe pain and ultimately miscarried that pregnancy and two others (one after my live childbirths). I delivered a healthy full-term DS when I was 21. This was after self-diagnosing a hormone deficiency and insisting that I be put on progesterone for that pregnancy (and the subsequent successful one). I did gain almost 90 lbs when I was pregnant because my pain and pregnancy problems worsened. I had a second DS full-term at 25.
Avatar f tn TCM has been practiced for thousands of years and this MD specializes in treating viral diseases like HCV, HIV and Lime. He is having very good results and is well respected in the US, Japan and China. Personally I believe that it would be better to follow an expert, than administrating different supplements and herbs myself, without the complete knowledge of their dosage and interactions.
Avatar f tn In keeping with the spirit of this thread and to show that exploratory investigation of HCV treatment options may pack a few surprises to the establishment, here is a berry for thought from Science News, dated yesterday and taken from the Journal of Biological Chemistry: "MIYAZAKI, Japan, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Japanese scientists say they've discovered a chemical found in blueberry leaves can help block the replication of the hepatitis C virus.
Avatar m tn Aspartame has been approved and has been proven to be potentially dangerous. So that speaks for itself. In Japan Stevia is being used in many commercial foods instead of sugar. Japan has not involved themselves in this political game and has been researching it's safety long ago. Here is some info on the political issue. Marcia Political controversy The stevia plant may be grown legally in most countries, although some countries restrict or ban its use as a sweetener.
Avatar f tn As for the huge switch in agriculture to soy, yes, that's true, but it's not for consumption in the US, it's almost all sold to China, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, etc. where soy is the staple food and people have fewer health problems than Americans of the nature you're describing. Those problems do go up, however, if they move to the US and switch to a more western diet, meaning more meat.
1128565 tn?1316724743 Trout,flounder (making fresh flounder whole is so easy and awesome), halibut, cod, haddock, farmed catfish (whole paycheck has great east coast sources, haven't braved their west coast stores), Alaska salmon--remember fattier is better-- shellfish ESP crab and SEA scallops (bay=more junk), monkfish tail, shrimp... ... Pescatarian can be very healthy. Sadly, vegetarian will miss some crucial stuff not in plants, and vegans will be malnourished of even more.

Avatar f tn I became a vegetarian when I was 13, vegan when I was 24. No drugs (including cigarettes) ever, and very little alcohol. I was diagnosed with MS at the age of 30. Does this mean I jettisoned my healthy habits? Of course not, but obviously they didn't stop me from getting MS at the bullseye centre of the 'typical' diagnostic demographic. Neither did they stop the first year from being quite a challenge. Currently I am a 33 year-old proud to take part in a clinical drug trial.
649848 tn?1534637300 Other nuts also have a variety of nutrients, along with their healthy fats and shouldn't be overlooked as part of a healthy diet. For instance, Brazil nuts are an excellent source of selenium, which is necessary for proper thyroid function. Even if one has proper thyroid function, without maintaining healthy levels of various nutrients that function may not last forever. Let's all go with Ken's assessment and eat the filberts this year instead of the sugar cookies...
Avatar n tn I am a 27 year old Canadian woman who has been living and working in Japan for the last 2 1/2 years. For the last year and a half I've been having a lot of problems with gastritis and reflux and I can't seem to get rid of them. I first noticed the symptoms last year when I felt a terrible burning in my stomach and had a lot of belching and heartburn after I ate. I had an upper GI X-ray done and there wasn't anything wrong except for excess acid production.
Avatar m tn In total, 14 trials (thyroid function was not the primary health outcome in any trial) were identified in which the effects of soy foods or isoflavones on at least one measure of thyroid function was assessed in presumably healthy subjects; eight involved women only, four involved men, and two both men and women. With only one exception, either no effects or only very modest changes were noted in these trials.
Avatar m tn There are many other producers of traditional cast iron outside the USA in France, Italy, Denmark, Sweden and the UK, manufacturing both enameled and unenameled cookware. In Asia, particularly India, Korea, Japan, and China, there is a long history of cooking with cast iron. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn Im just praying for someone that God will send to me, which will serve as his instrument in giving me hope and encouragement with regards to my condition. I'm a healthy carrier since I got this disease from my mom...
Avatar m tn Try not to go overboard, it can be overwhelming when you see all the different things people take. The basics are eat healthy with lots of veg/fruit and exercise to try and keep your immune system strong. The only problem with the food we eat is that through modern farming methods veg/fruit have less nutritional value than they did 100 years ago, e.g. a spinach back in 1915 had approx.
Avatar f tn The cardio said my heart was perfectly healthy. No evidence of MVP (which I thought I might have). He said the only thing to remark on was that the heart was smallish, but not abnormally so. My GP diagnosed me w/ 'anxiety attacks' w/out finding it necessary to order any physical testing whatsoever. (The above cardio is a friend of my parents who saw me while I was on vacation in the US).
Avatar n tn I had all those symtoms pre-tx and clr'ng, and b/c of a badly damged b/no longer diseased liver, they still crop up. The absolutely best diet for a bum liver is a vegetarian diet that also excludes dairy. and no caffine. Do I do it? no, b/now I use meats and dairy as an ingrediant or flavoring b/mostly cut out meat-incl poultry and fish-esp salt water seafood and dairy--a little yougurt w/protein drink and butter w/toast, a little cheese on a taco.
