Lose Weight, Lower Cholesterol, and Stay Healthy at School: Natural Solutions Magazine Shows You How

BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Whether you want to drop a few pounds, lower your heart disease risk, decrease pain and inflammation, reduce diabetes medication, or boost your child's immunity this school year, eating the right foods will help you reach these goals. In the September issue of Natural Solutions: Vibrant Health, Balanced Living, natural health experts share their practical, do-it-now plans.

Currently on newsstands, the issue includes "Does Your Diet Need a Makeover?" which pairs holistic practitioners and three readers with different health concerns: one is trying to lose weight, another wants to lower her cholesterol, and another hopes to ease his arthritis pain. Natural Solutions readers can pick up tons of advice from the diet overhauls designed by nutritional experts, including grocery shopping lists, meal plans, and motivational tips.

"The Diabetes Cure" investigates how a low-fat vegan diet (no animal products) can actually reverse diabetes. In one scientific study, people who ate vegan foods (whole grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruit) for 22 weeks reduced their diabetes medication by 43 percent and lost 14.3 pounds each. The article features delicious vegan recipes and tips for cooking with meat alternatives (tofu, tempeh, textured soy protein, and seitan) that satisfy even carnivores.

Dietary choices can also keep kids from picking up every sniffle at school. "Secrets of Healthy Kids" teaches parents how nutrient deficiency and stress impact the immune system. "If your child's body is busy dealing with stress, it won't have the bandwidth to manage illness-causing germs," says Lynea Gillen, coauthor of Yoga Calm for Children.

Some tips for keeping your children healthy:

  • Foster good food appreciation by organizing family meals and asking kids to help cook.
  • Keep nutritious after-school snacks on hand.
  • Exercise outdoors to defuse stress and get immune-boosting vitamin D.
  • Teach kids to practice visualizing a happy, calm place.
