Paleo + Keto & The Health News For March 2019

Dubbed as the healthiest diet in the world, peganism is what health-obsessed-cavemen-hipsters are tucking into in 2019.

Only a few of us know really the ins and outs of the two big-name diets: paleo and keto. Paleo reduces weight, with dieters benefiting hugely from the way the food has been cleaned of additives, preservatives and anti-inflammatory hindrances by eating like our ancestors. I’m talking about nuts, plants and nothing else. A study conducted by US News & Food Report showed that: “14 participants lost an average of about five pounds after three weeks on a Paleo regimen.” While the diet doesn’t have the best track record around the world, with its controversial methods and strategies, it is still widely talked about, gaining a lot of media attention.

Keto is a low-carb, high-fat diet that has multiple health benefits. Combine the two, and you’ve got peganism! The crossing of both diets is basically looking at the greens that are good for your health. Try deeply coloured fruits and vegetables, fatty fish, flaxseed – heaps of healthy unsaturated fats. The diet also allows some saturated fat from grass-fed or sustainably raised meat, butter and ghee, along with organic coconut oil and coconut butter!

Registered American dietitian, Wesley Delbridge, a spokesman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic health benefits, said in support of peganism that it ‘supports heart health and reduction of cancer, especially colon cancer.”

Eh? What’d you say?

At the end of a hard day in the office, sitting in front of a flickering computer screen and sitting amongst the murmur of a busy office space can sometimes make your brain feel a bit fuzzy.
Statistically, more than 60% of people are affected negatively by the noise of a workplace. Possible deafness is a rising problem. Taking or making calls, using headsets or listening to headphones whilst working can all affect your ears negatively.

Severe hearing losses can be a harsh issue for many. Hearing aids and other treatments can be helpful. Certain exercises can perhaps help, like making sure to go into a quiet room at work whilst on your break to lower the stress you may be feeling in your ears. Only half of all people with hearing loss have ever had their hearing professionally checked. If you feel like your hearing is playing you about, make sure to go and see a health professional.
