What Are The Benefits Of Taking Higher Doses Of Vitamin C? is republished from Personal Life Coach Fabrizio Fusco Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant necessary to protect our body from free radicals that can damage our cells. It is also essential to strengthen the immune system. The question is: â€śAre we taking enough? How much should we take?â€ť Cleanse the body and repair damaged cells Oxidation reactions are a physiological process in animal tissue. They developâ€¨from respiration, metabolism, sunlight, exercise and many other factors. However, they produce harmful molecules called free radicals. Whenâ€¨the production of free radicals is beyondâ€¨the protective capability of the antioxidant defenses, oxidative stress occurs. This process causes damage or death of the cells and also alters the cell DNA playing a significant role in many human diseases. It's not that we have a faulty DNA, it's that oxidative stress damages it. Antioxidants terminate harmful chain reactions by removing free radical intermediates and inhibiting other oxidation reactions. In other words, they are essential to cleanse the body and repair damaged cells. Are you lacking in vitamin C or taking enough? The Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) is the daily dietary intake level of a nutrient considered sufficient by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine to meet the requirements of 97.5% of healthy individuals in each life-stage and sex group. The problem is that when it comes to minerals and vitamins we are not getting enough of them. And we're not getting enough because we don't really know what is the minimum required to live optimally. It hasn't been researched well enough. For example, what is enough vitamin C? The RDA is fixed at 90 mg/day. Now, do you know how the government came up with this number? Well, it comes out by: [list=1] [*]Measuring all the food that is soiled every year [*]From this you calculate how much vitamin C is soiled every year [*]Divide by the number of people [*]Divide by the number of days in a year [/list] This is where the RDA for vitamin C (90mg/ day) comes out. And medical doctors and traditional nutritionists base their recommendations on that calculation that has nothing to do neither with science nor health. The optimal dosage theory Linus Pauling, a great scientific mind, came up with 2500 mg/day for Vitamin C. In his later years he promoted megavitamin therapy, dietary supplements, and taking large doses of vitamin C, none of which have gained acceptance in the mainstream scientific community. The fact that we keep the RDA for Vitamin C at 90 mg/day is ridiculous. It is ridiculous because stress burns this quantity in a few minutes, pollution and processed food do the same, a single cigarette burns all the RDA. Even if we don't exactly know what is the minimum required it's easy to understand that the limit set by the government is way too low. Yet it seems not too easy to understand for the Food and Nutrition Board. Actually, the fact is if they accept to recommend large doses of minerals and vitamins the whole Pharmaceutical Industry would be out of business. â€śGood nutrition and vitamins do not directly cure disease, the body does. You provide the raw materials and the inborn wisdom of your body makes the repair.â€ť â€“ Andrew W. Saul â€śNo evidence compels the conclusion that the minimum required intake of any vitamin comes close to the optimum intake that sustains good health.â€ťâ€“ Linus Pauling â€śVitamin C is the world's best natural antibiotic, antiviral, antitoxin and antihistamine.â€ť â€“ Andrew W. Saul How to get the optimal levelsÂ of Vitamin C Vitamin C is the most powerful antioxidant. The RDA of 90 mg a day, is just enough to barely survive. In a world plagued by chronic diseases, it's absolutely not enough. If you want to heal and repair your damaged cells you have to take 3 to 7 grams a day while if you're already healthy 1.5 to 3 grams a day for maintenance are enough. Also you need to spread the dosage throughout the day because your body will absorb only so much at one time. If you think it's enough to take your vitamin C from food think twice. Unfortunately, that's not the case. A lemon or an orange contain about 50 mg of vitamin C. It means you'd need to eat 100 oranges a day to take 5 grams of vitamin C. [img]http://fabriziofusco.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/FF-Jan03-Inline.jpg The only way to reclaim your health is to take supplements. There are two options: 1. Buy vitamin C tablets This is the easiest option. Just buy Vitamin C tablets and take them. Ideally each pill contains 1g of vitamin C taken 5 times per day. 2. Buy Ascorbic Acid Powder If you want to save some money you can buy ascorbic acid powder. Also, this is the most natural possible form of the vitamin. Ascorbic acid is just the name of Vitamin C. Now you have to make your own dosage of Vitamin C. So follow this easy steps: [list] [*]Pour 66 grams of ascorbic acid powder in a liter of water and shake the bottle. [/list] [list] [*]Drink 15 ml (that contains 1 gram of vitamin C) ideally 5 times a day for therapeutic effects. [/list] [list] [*]Use glass bottles (plastic may leak toxic substances) and keep them in a cool, dry and dark place. [/list] Make sure to buy only healthy supplements Most supplements have beenÂ processed by Pharmaceutical CompaniesÂ the same way our food is processed so they often containÂ sugarÂ and otherÂ toxic elements. Make sure to read the label to check the list of ingredients and only buy from trusted sources. Check out my online healthy food & supplements storeÂ to find vitamin C tablets and ascorbic acid powder plus a list of every food and supplement that I recommend. Health is a choice The power to heal your body lies within you. Food and supplements are the fuel your body needs to sustain vitality. Make sure they are natural, clean and pure.

4 Steps For Healing Childhood Emotional Trauma And Regain Control Of Your Life is courtesy of www.fabriziofusco.com When we become adults, we think that our childhood has ended, but that's not the way it is. Our child self remains alive within us. Perceptions and beliefs remain stored in the unconscious mind. And this affects the way we think, feel, and act as adult beings. Behavioural programming during childhood TheÂ unconscious mindÂ works like a computer that stores information about every experience and our reaction to them since birthday. In other words, it merely reflects what we have stored inside. From these references we guide our existence. So,Â the unconscious mind drives on our behalf according to how we perceive our past experiences. It's widely known that most information is stored inside the unconscious mind between gestation and eight years of age. These life-shaping subconscious programs are the result of observing and interacting with people around us: parents, siblings, teachers, community, and culture. In other word, we spend the first 8 years of life, â€śdownloadingâ€ť beliefs and experiences from our family and culture. During the first 8 years of life, the way we feel is primarily reactive. This means that when we feel painful emotions and our parents don't validate us, we are stuck in that pain with no knowledge of how to assimilate or heal it. Only after 8 years, when our cognitive mind is developed, we can rationalize our way into thinking whatever makes sense to us, give a meaning to painful emotions and move forward. This means that actually we don't experience any new trauma after the age of eight. â€śThe cost of shaping ourselves to fit the desires, preferences, and expectations of others, is losing ourselves; and when we lose ourselves we become frozen without direction, unable to make our own choices.â€ť â€“ Teal Swan, (Spiritual teacher) â€śEvery negative or traumatic event in your life can become either an opportunity to grow or a prison in which you feel trapped.â€ť â€“ Ann Boroch, ND â€śAnytime you experience something asÂ upsettingÂ or uncomfortable, it is a triggered memory. You are not, in fact, living anything new in your life.Â You are experiencing nothing butÂ reflectionsÂ from your childhood.Â There are no exceptions to this rule.â€ť â€“ Teal Swan (Spiritual teacher) Emotional experiences are a reflection of childhood What does really mean that we don't experience any new trauma after the age of 8? You may say, for example, that your heartache from breaking up the first love was very real. And it sure is. But the new trauma is, in fact, just a reflection of a prior wound. In other words, you aren't living a new trauma; you are experiencing nothing but reflections from your childhood. You live and re-live the trauma. You are not able to live in the present moment because the past trauma continues to come up again and again in order to reintegrate itself. This situation leads to an unhappy life, addiction, failed relationships. But you can stop the cycle and live a whole different life. [img]http://3wnwft2a77e36rfkz39dows1.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/FF-Dec-04-inline-1-1.jpg Here are 4 steps for healing childhood emotional trauma and break free of negative emotions... 1. Embrace negative emotions Any emotional upset you experience in the present is, in fact, just the echo of a traumatic memory. It's a trigger from a prior wound that needs your attention. This emotional upset (trigger) helps you see the wounds that you have tried to suppress. It's like a messenger carrying the echo of something important. Since triggers hurt so badly you may find it difficult to accept them as beneficial instead of detrimental. Using a metaphor, you're living your life escaping from a tornado. Don't escape it anymore. Run into it, embrace your negative emotions. They are just a messenger. 2. Be fully present with your emotions Be with your emotions regardless if they feel bad or good. Don't escape from them. Allow them to fully express. Understand that there's nothing wrong with negative emotions. Validate your emotions, learn from them, hear what they want you to hear, see what they want you to see. Completely be with how you feel. 3. Invite memories to surface Now is the moment to go back in time. While you fully experience your feelings ask yourself: â€śWhen was the last time I felt this sensation?â€ť and then â€śwhen was the time before?â€ť.Â Continue the process and try to go back to the first time you experienced those feelings. See and experience memories that come up from your unconscious. Experience what your feelings want you to see, hear, feel.Â 4. Inner child work Once you are in your unconscious memories, mentally alter the memory in a way that feels emotionally positive. This procedure is called inner child work. For example, in your memory you were a child, you did something on your own and you felt a sense of accomplishment. Your father discarded it and made it again because he could do it better than you. You felt worthless. Now reframe the experience in a way that you'd like it to happen today. Send all the good feelings inside of you to everyone in that memory. Imagine your adult self approaching the child and enable the child to feel better. You may imagine a person explain the entire situation objectively to the child and help him not take the experience personally. Experience a new life Altering a memory from childhood changes your current echoes (emotional upsets) as a result of it. It means that you can really change the way you experience your life. You can break free of the past and take back control of your life. Make today count. Make every day count. Make your life count. Make the rest of your life the best of your life. In myÂ FREEÂ e-book â€śLove your lifeâ€ť I explain just that: how to love yourself once again. So that you can spread the love to the entire world.
