5 Foods To Promote Mens Sexual Health

salud-sexual-masculina

It’s an age old problem. As men age, our performance in the bedroom can start to lack in consistency and enthusiasm.

So what’s an older guy gotta do to keep his mojo strong and his partner happy?

One way is to take one of the many performance enhancing drugs on the market today. But I don’t recommend that.

I mean, if you really care about your overall health, why would you want to be taking those drugs anyway?

I am here to tell all of you guys reading this… there is a better way – a healthy way – which will have your partner coming back for more.

Don’t know where to start? Need a little help? First things first…

Let’s look at your diet.

Sexologists, cardiologists and psychologists agree: the foods you consume have a huge impact on your sexual health.

Here are 5 healthy foods to improve your libido that will also have you looking and feeling good in no time!

19-greenveggies

1. Green Vegetables. Spinach, kale, brussels sprouts, broccoli and other green vegetables contain magnesium and folate, which help to dilate blood vessels and create greater sexual arousal for both men and women.

2. Berries, Berries and more Berries! Berries are sexy. They are high in vitamin B, C and folate, which are shown to be libido boosters. They also contain amazing antioxidants,  which relax blood vessels and improve circulation for a natural “Viagra” effect.

3. Dark Chocolate. I know! Berries and chocolate! Nothing better. Dark chocolate, in particular, contains a compound called phenylethylamine, which releases the same endorphins triggered by sex and increases the feelings of attraction between two people. Next time you’re feeling frisky, introduce a little dark chocolate into the mix.

4. Fatty Fish. What’s good for your heart is good for your love life. Oily, wild-caught, cold water fish, such as salmon and tuna, contain the omega-3 fatty acids – DHA and EPA,  which increase the dopamine levels in the brain, in turn, triggering arousal. These fatty acids also help reduce depression and reduce inflammation.

diverticulitis-Nuts-and-Seeds

5. Nuts and Seeds. Pumpkin seeds, almonds, walnuts (as well as other nuts and seeds) contain monounsaturated fats, which create healthy cholesterol. Your sex hormones need that healthy cholesterol to work properly.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re struggling with your sexual health then I encourage you to take a hard look at healthy and natural ways to get your mojo back. There’s so much you can do for yourself (and your partner) so dig in and enjoy the process!

My friend and colleague, Greg Dyer and I will be promoting a new workshop in the future, called “Save The Boners”. If this interests you, please contact me through the info provided in my bio below.

It’s Harvest time! Why Eating Seasonal Is Great For Your health

fall

As we head into a new season, it’s important that we start incorporating seasonal foods into our diet. When we eat with the seasons we get foods that are at the peak of freshness and we can take advantage of the nutritional content that we would miss with out of season foods. It’s also great for our environment. Here are some healthy tips for eating in season:

It’s good for you- Eating seasonal foods helps to support our bodies natural cleansing and healing abilities. When you eat with the seasons you replenish your body with a wide variety of important vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and phytonutritents that you need to maintain vibrant health. 

It’s good for the environment- Eating in season and purchasing local reduces the amount of miles your food has to travel to reach your plate. It cuts back on the amount of fuel used and it reduces pollution.

It’s Sustainable- Seasonal foods that are grown organically are more sustainable because they are grown by farmers that care about the planet. By not using toxic chemicals, GMOs and by rotating crops to increase soil fertility, these farmers are producing healthier foods and protecting the planet.

It’s economical- When you buy seasonal organic and local foods you are supporting local businesses within in your community. You will also find that many local foods cost less than foods that are shipped in, thus saving money on your grocery bill.

It’s now fall and if the cool weather hasn’t hit you yet, it’s not far off. Make sure you adjust your diet and lifestyle to gain maximum advantage. You’ll be thankful and the planet will be thankful. Have a great fall and don’t forget to visit me “here” for great information and programs for your healthy Journey.

Namaste,

Summertime Greens

Leafy greens

Yeah, it’s that time of year again. Salad season! Ok, maybe it’s salad season all of the time, or it should be. The health benefits of our leafy green friends are vast and easy to incorporate into our daily diet. They are also a delicious addition to any meal. So go for it and stuff your face with these nutritional wonders. Salad is only one way to eat leafy greens. Here are some other great tips to serve leafy greens with your meals and also some nutritional tips as well. Enjoy!

Benefits of leafy greens-Where do I start? Leafy greens are choc full of vitamins and minerals and phyto-chemicals that help fight disease. They are full of water which keeps you hydrated during the hot summer months and also contributes to beautiful skin and hair. They contain lots of fiber which keeps you full and contributes to weight loss. Fiber and antioxidants also contribute to a healthy heart by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. They are an excellent source of folate which improves memory and can ward off depression. If you want to detox your body and get on the path to looking and feeling younger  then leafy greens need to be part of your daily diet.

Leafy Green Faves

Arugula-A staple for my garden. It’s a leafy green vegetable with a peppery taste. It is generally used in salads, but it also makes a great pesto. The phytochemicals and antioxidants help boost memory. It’s also a good source of potassium which helps prevent osteoporosis.

Collard Greens-A member of the cabbage family, I love to steam these or saute them in coconut oil.  They are a great source of beta carotene which is good for vision. They also contain vitamin k which strengthens the bones.

Spinach-Popeye had it going on. This is  one of the most nutrient dense plants on the planet.  It’s high in fiber and low in calories which makes it perfect for weight loss. It is a high source of iron and vitamin B which helps to maintain a strong circulatory system and promotes healthy skin and hair. Throw it in a salad, cook it or eat it raw. You will reap the benefits.

These are just a few of my favorites. You probably have your favorites too. Anyone ever heard of kale? You get the picture. Get some leafy greens in your diet today! Put them in a salad! cook them! juice’em! Just eat them!

Here is a favorite summertime salad recipe for you:

Arugula salad: 

3 cups of organic arugula(washed)

1 Shallot Chopped

1 cup of cherry tomatoes(halved)

Dressing:

1 tablesoon of olive oil

2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

Add pepper and garlic powder to taste

Have an amazing and healthy summer!

What Is A Health Coach And Why You Should Hire One

seek-a-health-coach

Since I launched my holistic health coaching business, the biggest question that I’ve gotten is, “What is a health coach?” And “Why would I need one?” These are great questions. Well, here is my definition of a health coach and 5 reasons why you may want to hire one.

According to Wikipedia, health coaching is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavior change by challenging a client to listen to their inner wisdom, identify their values, and transform their goals into action. I would add to that in saying that a health coach serves as a guide to take you where you need to go. A health coach helps you identify your goals and helps you implement a strategy to meet those goals. A health coach helps you improve your self management and to stay motivated throughout the process.

What a health coach isn’t;  A health coach does not define your goals for you or put you on a diet. A health coach is not a personal trainer. A health coach does not give medical advice and is not a medical doctor.

So now you now know what a health coach is, so do you need one? Here are 5 reasons you may want to hire a health coach.

A health coach will provide you with the support you need to make lasting changes.  Perhaps you need a little jump start to lose some weight or reduce stress in your life, but you don’t know how to do go about it.  A health coach will guide through the process to get you on track and motivate you to make lasting changes.

A health coach will serve as your guide to make small incremental changes without overwhelming you.  You have a busy life. We get it.  Change is tough.  We’re not here to turn you into a vegetarian(unless you want to be one of course). We want to help you make those healthy changes without totally disrupting your life. We offer easy to follow guidelines you can commit to.

Health coaches base their work on bio-individuality. We develop a plan tailored to your individual health challenges and goals.  You know that you have guidance tailored to your own needs and results.

Health coaches assist in evaluating all areas of your life. Many times issues such as weight loss can be symptoms of other events in your life. A health coach focuses to create balance in these areas and to create harmony which leads to a healthier and happier you.

Health coaches are certified and professionally trained to assist you in making the best choices for your health and happiness. Your doctor can’t do it all.  Health coaches are trained in over 100 dietary theories. In turn we focus on Primary Foods-career, relationships, and spirituality. And Secondary Foods-nutrition and exercise. We serve as an additional resource to your doctor’s recommendations.   

So now you have the details. Is a health coach in your future?

Why not take the first step and “Click Here” for a complimentary “Empower Your Health Strategy Session” with me today? Together we’ll map your personalized program and get you on the right track to health and happiness.

Have a healthy day and namaste!

Womens Health

Bringing balance to busy lives - Yoga

Ladies, have you ever wanted something in your life, but found you couldn’t achieve it alone? Has your doctor ever recommended a lifestyle change that you found to be unsustainable? Have you ever received good advice that you were unable to follow?

Do you want to feel more youthful and vibrant? Would you like to improve your mood and have more energy? Are you ready to start feeling better than ever?

I am dedicated to helping you achieve your health goals and live the healthy lifestyle you have always dreamed of.  My program is structured to focus on your individual health goals such as weight management, stress reduction, and anti-aging. I won’t put you on a diet or demand that you to make radical changes to your lifestyle. Together we will work through your lifestyle needs while implementing a nutrition plan to get you on track to a healthy and happy lifestyle.

I coach on a concept called Bio-individuality™: The concept of bio-individuality is that each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison, and that’s why fad diets tend to fail in the long run. Working on the principle of bio-individuality, I’ll support you to make positive changes that are based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and ancestral background. I use a personalized, holistic approach to ensure that you will have great success!

Family Health

t’s a busy world we live in and sometimes making healthy choices as a family can be a daunting task. How do you keep your family happy and healthy with so many unhealthy challenges?

As a Holistic Health Coach it’s my mission to help your family make positive healthy changes through nutrition, mindfulness and improved communication, and showing you a harmonious balanced mind and body connection.

I’ll show you how to make positive changes that are unique to your family’s needs, goals, and lifestyle preferences. My approach is to create a fun and rewarding strategy for your family that will create healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

Family Preparing meal,mealtime Together

My program is structured around Bio-Individuality a concept where each person has unique food and lifestyle needs. There are two areas we focus on, Primary Foods and Secondary Foods. 

Primary Food-It’s easy to overlook all of the things that contribute to our sense of nourishment and fulfillment. It’s not just the food we eat, but all of the other factors present in our daily lives. Healthy relationships, a fulfilling career, regular physical activity and a spiritual awareness are essential forms of nourishment. When these “primary foods” are balanced, what you eat becomes secondary. I will support you in achieving all of your family’s goals, from eating the right foods for your body to living an inspired, fulfilling life.

Secondary Food-Proper nourishment is essential to balancing the “primary foods”. I’ll teach your family how to enjoy “real food” and to get the maximum nutritional benefits to empower your family to lead a healthy and happy lifestyle.

“Bruce is a fantastic health coach!  Not only does he listen intently to what needs to be discussed, but he always has great solutions and ideas to combat my health and exercise issues.  He sends me articles to read and suggests meditation exercises to help me focus on.  I love that he actively engages in yoga and always encourages me to take another class or introduce a superfood to my diet.  I’m happier and healthier as a result of adding his bi-monthly appointments to my calendar. And my business is really seeing added growth because now I have the energy to bring it to the next level!  I highly recommend Kriya Living to anyone who is stuck in a diet and/or exercise rut and needs to re-evaluate your health and fitness goals and dreams.”

-Carolyn Israel-

I have worked with Bruce for his knowledge on juice cleanses and detoxes. His programs are simple and effective. Bruce customizes his programs to fit my health needs and works diligently to make sure I’m meeting my goals. His expertise and professionalism are attributes that I would recommend to anyone that is looking to improve their health.

-Patrick Falencik-

Bruce Anderson is an intelligent, personable, and intuitive coach whom I felt completely at ease with when discussing my health goals during our strategy session last Friday. Bruce helped me pinpoint several areas of concern to work on: eating well during travel, nutrition tips for building bone, and stress management. Perhaps what I most appreciate about Bruce Anderson is the truly holistic nature of his approach. I feel confident that he will help me reach my health goals, and I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone wanting to be at their very best!

-Jeannie O’Donnell-

I have known Bruce Anderson for many years. When Bruce mentioned he was studying to be a Holistic Health coach, I thought I could use some help. So back in early FebruaryI started meeting Bruce twice a month. Boy am I glad I did it. Bruce has covered many topics about proper nutrition and healthy living. He has educated me on what to eat as well a what not to eat. Most importantly with Bruce’s coaching I have lost 15lbs. with 5 to go. Thanks Brucey!

-Scott L. Mindling-

Advice on healthier living is a lot easier to swallow –man to man. My husband does the grocery shopping and he has willingly converted the ‘beer crisper’ to fruits and veggies :) As he nears completion of a full session of coaching with Bruce, we’re excited to get the blood test completed with proven results. Though we’re looking forward to meeting Bruce in person, our long distance sessions via Skype worked nicely – and truly life-changing for BOTH of us.

-Dori Schmitz-

“I had a juicer gathering dust on the shelf. After working with Bruce I have the juicer out and in use several times a day. I’ve had more carrots in the past three weeks than I’ve probably had in the past 15 years. I have raw spinach with each dinner””. Juicing does taste good!”
