fat is your friend

First, there was Atkins. Next, Gluten-Free. Then, Paleo. And let’s not forget Whole30. Somewhere in the middle of these popular carb-restrictive food plans—many of which prohibit grains, at least initially—emerged keto. This high-fat, moderate-protein, very-low-carb plan has quickly become the reigning king of weight-loss diets. Search Pinterest for “keto recipes,” and you’ll find thousands that sound too good to be true (I’m talking to you, cheese lovers!): keto taco soup, keto lasagna, keto meatloaf, keto pizza, and the list goes on. A Google search brings up just as many weight-loss and health success stories from keto devotees. “For people who have tried to free themselves from the disastrous impacts of carbohydrate dependency, keto offers a uniquely successful and fully sustainable answer,” says Mark Sisson, an early adopter of the keto diet and…

worth her salt

Salt. Pretty basic, right? In fact, it’s been around from the very first stirrings of civilization. What is thought to be the first city in Europe, Solnitsata in Bulgaria, was a salt mine. For millennia, salt was used for barter, for funeral offerings, or for currency across the globe. In fact, the word “salary” comes from the Latin word for salt. Nowadays, salt’s role in society has become inevitably minimized. It is no longer vital for preserving foods, wars are no longer fought over its sources, no one is using it to pay their country’s debts. In recent years, salt has gotten something of a bad rep for its health hazards, especially when consumed in excess. I, too, worried about the pros and cons of salt. Then I met Selina Delangre. A…

powerful herbs for pain

Arthritis literally means “joint inflammation,” but medically it also refers to more than 100 different rheumatic diseases that cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in joints or connective tissue. One form of arthritis or another afflicts 50 million Americans, and it’s the most prevalent cause of disability in people 65 and older. Osteoarthritis (OA) develops from excessive wear to the cartilage between joints, commonly affecting athletes and older people who have “worn out” their joints. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), on the other hand, is an autoimmune disease, meaning the body’s immune system attacks itself, causing pain and inflammation. RA can strike any joint—regardless of how much or little it’s been used—at any age. Here are some of the best herbs to use for relieving arthritis symptoms. Turmeric Turmeric is a staple in Ayurvedic medicine for treating…
