However, it’s important to be “holistic but realistic” in our approaches. I, for example, live a very healthy lifestyle. So do my kids. But we have pizza at times. Unless there are severe food allergies or food intolerance’s, complete abstinence fromÂ less resourceful foods are not practical – and boring at times. Besides, it’s human nature to want more of what you can’t have.
Where am I going with this?
A new study suggest that a compound in oregano called carvacrol can inhibit prostate cancer cells in a laboratory study. Oregano, as is thyme, is a very powerful plant with many protective properties including anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial.
What should you do?
It would be a good idea to spice up your life – literally. Part of what makes the Standard American Diet so SAD (all pun intended) is that it is full of grease, sugar and no spices. The medicine is in the kitchen cabinet. Add spices of all kinds to food. They are all protective. Especially; garlic, cloves, rosemary, turmeric , thyme and of course, oregano.
When choosing dietary supplementsÂ – again phytochemicals (plant chemicals) are most important. If you noticed, many of the ingredients in Advanced Prostate Support are phytochemicals and herbs: Astraglus, Elderberry, Andrographis, all spice, garlic, basil, sage, Acerola, echinacea, Curcumin, quercetin,Â grape seed extract, Lutein, Lycopene., Zinc, goldenseal, acerola, garlic, clove and Allspice.
Back to Pizza and Doggy bag message:
What makes Pizza potentially deleterious is the flour, cheese, sugar and oil ( which I am sure is not the best quality – if it were pizza would cost more). However, you can counteract that by adding broccoli, extra plain marinara (lycopene), garlic and oregano. Light on the cheese. This is how you can make a “bad food” better.
So have a pizza, make it as healthy as possible and enjoy it – GUILT FREE.
