Open your eyes

This is something that pretty much summarizes the madness of 'civilization'.

I tried to find the complete documentary online, but it seems only to be available in Finnish (and only for 24 days more), access it here.

Curing toothache

Just this morning I was boasting about how my wisdom teeth haven't caused me any trouble since I started a super healthy diet. Well, never good to boast, an hour later my wisdom tooth started aching. My gums are too loose around it so sometimes some food gets stuck and causes an infection, no matter how well I eat. So now I'm trying to cure it with echinaforce water, vitamin C in powder form, and chamomile and milfoil tea. This method has cured it many times before so hopefully it'll work again. And of course, no sugar because sugar makes bacteria thrive and competes with vitamin C, making the vitamin's work of curing infections much less effective. So yea, if you suffer from toothache due to infection, first thing to do is to stop eating sugar all together (which no one should eat anyway), and eat vitamin C instead, and gurgle the suffering area with waters and teas made with herbs that cure infections.

The importance of compassion

This blog is not only about the physical aspects of health and well-being, but also about the mental and spiritual sides of it. To me, the easiest way to feel good, on the inside, is to do good.

Emma talked about compassion in her post about the Dalai Lama, and he is definitely on to something. When I first started working here at the airport in Helsinki, I had a hard time because of the nature of my job. I felt I wasn't doing any good at all, quite the opposite, and that there was no purpose what-so-ever to what I was doing every day. After a talk with my dad, he made me feel a little better about it, by telling me that the importence does not lie in what you do, but how you do it. If I meet every single one of my customers with true compassion and treat them each like an individual person, I am already making a difference. I try to keep this in mind every day at work, and at other times too.

It shouldn't be a secret to anyone that love is what makes the biggest difference in this world. So in my opinion, in order for love to truly be all around, we need to spread it. Each and every one of us. So why not try to do one good deed every day, one thing that is completely unselfish and from which you expect nothing in return? Who knows, what goes around might just come around.

If you respect someone, love someone, appreciate someone, just see someone as important in your life, tell them! There is not enough of that in the world. I feel like in our society people are scared of being told nice things, and I don't think that's how it should be. Remember to say please and thank you, to wish people a good morning, and to treat everyone like they matter, because they do. And so do you!

Little breakthroughs

To find something you love doing, and being able to do it, whether a hobby or for work or something else, is incredibly rewarding. Now imagine the feeling when you notice and realize that what you are doing is actually good for you, really good, and you keep noticing a change in yourself, your well-being and your mood and you keep making progress. Pretty amazing right? During the past days, I have had a few revelations like that concerning some things very close to my heart.

First off, after months of me lecturing and pestering my mom about healthy eating and living, I finally had some success. One day, when she had been craving a beetroot salad and went to the store to get a ready made one, she actually decided to read the list of ingredients and ended up not being able to buy it. I love how I finally got through to her, and on her own level, I know I will never be able to convince her to eat raw oatmeal every morning.

After posting about my exercise goals and achievements, I had a pretty bad run last week, which of course happens, but I was quite upset by it. So you can imagine how unbelievably proud I felt on Saturday when I ran my fastest mile yet! It saved my entire week! And gave me even more motivation to keep running and doing what I'm doing. It also convinced me that I did the right thing by actually cutting down some on my exercising.

To sum all of this up, I was wondering why I had a terrible headache all day today. I went out on Saturday and had a little to drink, so that was an obvious one, but it shouldn't last until today. Then I realized that I'd had sugar, and some chips yesterday, and suddenly everything made a whole lot of sense! I've felt so amazing while eating healthy good food, and now I will definitely not stray for a while again, it is not worth it.

This was just to sum up the small achievements I've made, and to let you know that it is rewarding to stick to what you believe in and reap the benefits.

Not quite stepping up to the challenge

A while ago Emma posted about the meditation challenge we were embarking upon. So far it's been about 7 days of it, and it hasn't turned out very well for me, at all. Normally, I have quite a hard time concentrating and focusing on anything which doesn't interest me, and am quite easily distracted, so I figured meditation would be really good for me, which it probably is.
Last week was quite a stressful one, and not very good in general, what with bad news all over the place, concerning one of my dogs, and uncertainty about my future and some other small things. My mom was in Paris and I had to dogsit all week, which kind of added to the stress level as well.
I started the meditation challenge with high hopes, and convinced it would be amazing. Little did I know, I wasn't prepared for it at all. I did about 4 of the meditations, and got nowhere. I couldn't seem to get my mind off everything going on, and I was distracted all of the time. I also slept quite a little last week, which probably just added to my failure to focus, or unfocus if you will.

Tomorrow I am going to Copenhagen with my mom, to unravel all of the deliciousness to be found in organic food, and seafood over there. After I get back, I will continue with the meditation challenge, and try to get it to work. I have decided I will make myself do it every day for three weeks, because I'm quite determined to find inner peace through meditation. I think it is all about finding the time, making time for it, and creating a space where you are comfortable and at peace, and that is something I think most of us need. 

Now I am off to do my last shift at work before my tiny mini-break!


Thursday, 18 August 2011


Today I'm going to talk about skincare because it's important. Most people seem to have the idea that our skin is somehow different from the rest of our body, somehow outside of everything else and not connected to our inner body. This is not true at all, our skin is our largest organ, functioning as any other organ inside our body. Its purpose is to protect everything that's inside its cover, a great responsibility. Also, the skin is an absorbing organ, just like your bowels. It absorbs whatever comes into contact with it and transports it to the rest of the body. As such, you can imagine how much impact skincare has on your whole body and health.

Now most skincare products in 'normal' shops are bad for you. This is just a fact you have to accept even though it seems unreasonable. Business is business, and has nothing to do with your well-being. So what do they put in these horrible products? Firstly, any cream, balm, lotion, lip balm etc almost certainly has mineral oil as its first, second, or third ingredient (ingredients are listed highest amount first), and it is the only ingredient in Vaseline. The list of ingredients does not read mineral oil, but instead other fancy terms are used, such as paraffinum liquidum, petrolatum, or hydrocarbon oils amongst others, here's a good list. These mineral oils are actually petroleum, which is the stuff they drill out of the earth to use as motor oil, car fuel, to make plastic, or in asphalt. Does this sound like something you want to put on your skin, a precious organ of yours which purpose is to absorb good things and protect the rest of your body? No, I didn't think so. Mineral oil acts as a layer on your skin, clogging the pores and thus making the skin unable to eliminate toxins. Once it has slowly been absorbed by your skin, it is broken down by your liver and passes through your intestinal tract, absorbing fat-soluble vitamins and stealing them from your body. This eventually leads to nutrient deficiencies and can therefore result in decease and ill-health. So why do skincare producers use this crap? Because it's a byproduct of making fuel and other products from petroleum, and therefore very cheap. And unless you think you are cheap and invaluable, don't use products containing mineral oils. I feel I need to add that it is the main ingredient in baby oil and other baby products, sometimes I wonder how the owners of these bad skincare companies sleep at night.

Another toxin which you find in most skincare products in paraben. There are many different parabens, such as methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, and butylparaben, same stuff basically. They function as preservatives, giving products a longer shelf-life. These substances are, like mineral oils, very cheap and as such very valuable for business. I've tried to find out what these parabens actually are, but the chemistry was too deep for me, which I think in itself answers the question of whether I want to use them on my skin. Parabens have been shown to produce breast cancer, and have been found in breast cancer tumors. There are a lot of studies and reports claiming how non-toxic and safe parabens are, but do people ever make the effort of finding out who financed these studies? I'm pretty sure all of them are paid for by the same companies who frantically want to maximise their millions by selling you cheap crap to put on your skin. And here's a question for you: if there is even the slightest chance, the smallest study showing that parabens might give you breast cancer, even if other studies say it won't, would you like to rub it into your skin?

Stay with me a while longer, I want to mention sodium laureth sulfate. This is an inexpensive foaming agent, used in shampoos, shower gels, soaps, facial cleansers and the like. Many studies have proven it to be toxic, containing cancer-producing components and skin-irritants. Again, its availability is being guarded by multinational companies wanting to preserve their ability to make huge amounts of money by using cheap crap in your skincare products. Here, you might want to ask yourself the previous question again.

These products are just a few, and there are many many more. But this is a good start, and by avoiding these you avoid most other toxins too because these are usually the main ingredients in conventional skincare. And by skincare I mean lotions, oils, shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, toothpaste, make-up, and everything else you use to make yourself pretty (as if you weren't already). So beware, you might actually be making yourself less pretty and more unhealthy.

The alternative? Visit any organic shop and you'll find loads and loads of great and healthy natural skincare products. Many other shops have started to sell such things too, but beware of words such as natural, they can be very deceptive, so always check the list of ingredients. Also, instead of skincare products, all organic natural oils can be used on your skin, such as olive oil or coconut oil. Ask me if you want to know more details, or if you want advice on which products to use, I have a few years' experience and some excellent tips to share.


The cacao bean and all its friends

When I started doing research on the next of the superfoods that we are going to talk about, the cacao bean, I was saddened to find a lot of negative information about it online. I hope that this is all some misunderstanding, as raw organic cacao, as beans, powder, nibs or whatever, is most definitely a superfood. It apparently contains the most antioxidants to be found in any food, and is especially good for the brain. Cacao beans were used as money in Latin America up until about 130 years ago, which has to say something about how wonderful it is. It has also been used as nutrition for thousands of years, so I really don't think it is unhealthy, or not good for you. A common misunderstanding is that cacao has a high amount of caffeine, which is not true. It only holds about 1/20th of the caffeine amount of coffee.

Sadly, the quite disgusting toxic milk chocolate bars you find in any supermarket, have pretty much nothing to do with this wonderful plant. You find raw cacao in different forms, which you can use for different purposes. It has a quite bitter taste, so it may take some getting used to. The different forms of raw cacao are:
whole cacao beans
cacao nibs
cacao powder
cacao paste (simply cacao ground to a paste)
cacao butter (cold pressed fat from the beans)
I probably use cacao nibs the most, which I mix in with my muesli and eat with soy milk. Another easy to use cacao derivative is raw cacao powder, which you need to make raw chocolate (yum!) and other desserts and smoothies. Basically, there are hundreds of recipes featuring cacao in differnet forms out there, so just go crazy and try some! I will definitely try to incoporate it more in my daily diet.

On exercise

I've been wanting to talk to you about exercise for a while now. It is something that has become extremely close to my heart during the past year or so, and yet I feel only now I've achieved a somewhat normal balance with it. I tend to demand way too much of myself at all times, and doing so with exercise is not necessarily a good thing. Earlier this summer I would bike to and from work, which totals at about 40km per day, plus go running 4 times a week. This makes for a lot of time sweating in your workout gear. At first I thought it was good, and I felt great, but after having hurt my foot, and thus being forced to not exercise for about a week, I noticed I might have been overdoing it a bit. Not only have my joints never been as sore and my legs as stiff as when I had to lay off, I also noticed a change in my moods. I had been quite irritable while caught up in my crazy workout regime, and when I wasn't doing it anymore, I was a much nicer person to be around. Now, I think this has to do with the fact that if I'm doing at least 2 hours of cardio a day, that's a lot of blood rushing around, and since both biking (especially if you do it my way) and running are heavy cardio, I didn't really seem to get down from that high, and was restless pretty much all the time.

So what I figured with that was that I would take it down a notch, and have since then quit the biking, and kept the running part as I'm training for a 10k run. And how rewarding it has been! I run much faster and easier, and actually keep making progress all the time, and I feel great. I also want to incorporate yoga and swimming into my workout routine, to balance it all out. I guess what I'm saying is that sometimes it tends to be quite hard to remember the fact that moderation is key. Having said all of this, I still want to add that every single one of us needs exercise, and we probably all need different amounts and kinds of it. So my advice would be to try to find whatever makes you feel good and grounded, and I also think it should always be fun, so keep that in mind.

Dissecting the antioxidant

We got a request to post about antioxidants, if they are healthy at all or if it's only a clever marketing scheme, as there are a lot of products out there boasting their antioxidant tendencies. Now, as I've been doing some research, it turns out this is no easy nut to crack. There is a lot of information out there on this subject, and it is quite complicated, at least for me who's never been that into chemistry and biology. The antioxidants work on a cellular level, which means there's a lot of talk about molecules and other similar things. I will try to simplify what I've learned so that maybe you guys will not have such a hard time.

Apparently, our cells can be damaged or killed by chain reactions caused by free radicals, which in turn are caused by oxidation of a molecule. Oxidative stress can apparently help cause quite a few diseases, Alzheimer's to name just one. Antioxidants work to terminate the free radicals, and inhibit other oxidation reactions. So to make this extremely simple, the antioxidants kill the free radicals,  which cause cell damage which in turn can cause a large number of diseases. That's good right? In my opinion, it is. So the basic rule is that antioxidants help prevent heart disease, cancer and a number of other things.

And now you may ask, where do we find these antioxidants? That is where this list comes in. The foods with the most antioxidants are as follows:
dried small red beans
wild blueberries
dried red kidney beans
pinto beans
cultivated blueberries
cooked artichoke hearts
dried prunes
The list goes on, but what I noticed is that there are lots of beans berries and different kinds of apples. So what do we notice? Eating beans, fruits and veggies is healthy! (Just remember o make sure to have organic ones or to pick them wild) Green tea apparently also has a lot of antioxidants, so go ahead and have some of that. In my opinion, one does not need to take any supplements to be sure to get antioxidants, since Mother Nature has made sure we can get enough from what we eat.

The b-muffins

B for birthday and banana.
As promised, I'm here to give you the recipe for the deliciousness you saw pictured in the previous post.
The muffins are fairly easy to make, and don't take too long either.

What I used: (the amounts are not exact, I tend to not be too strict while baking and cooking)
3,5dl soy milk
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
6dl wholemeal spelt flour
1,5 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
some salt
a few pinches of cinnamon
8dl soy butter
1,5dl muscovado sugar
½-1 dl soy vanilla yogurt
2 bananas
walnuts and cinnamon for garnish
First mix the milk and vinegar, then in a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In yet another bowl, beat the butter and sugar. It was supposed to get fluffy, according to the recipe I took the idea from, but I didn't get it that way, and it certainly did not seem to affect the taste or texture. Add the yogurt and the milk mixture, blend, and then add the dry mix and blend. Last, but definitely not least, stir in the mashed bananas. Put the batter in muffin liners, and put it in the 165 degree oven for about ten minutes. Take them out and add the walnuts and cinnamon, and then bake them for another 10-15 minutes. Take them out and enjoy! They smell even better than they taste!


More b-day

Last night Anna popped over for a quick gift delivery. With her she had vegan banana muffins and a Moomin card functioning as a gift card to a treatment at the Helsinki Korres beauty salon. Perfect!

Anna will be back soon with the muffin recipe. They taste great, and are extremely moist, and they're not too sweet so can also be eaten as breakfast or lunch.

Dinner of the week(end)

Yesterday I spent a few hours at Emma's after work, which was nice. We talked about food and health and so forth, cooked some, tried a not so good dessert (one definitely not worth posting about) and watched the Finnish version of Zeitgeist. What we made for dinner was something so delicious that I decided to make it again for me and my mom today. My mom is quite new to healthy and above all, conscious eating (that is knowing what it actually is you put in your mouth, reading the labels carefully and so forth) and most of the time she is amazed at how good and easy it is to eat healthy.

What you see in the picture above, apart from our tablecloth, is absolutely scrumptious and healthy as well. It is fast and easy to make, which seems to be a priority for most people, and you can also eat it cold, so I will be enjoying the leftovers tomorrow at work. What you need is:
a few carrots
some onion
some garlic (we put about four cloves)
mushrooms (for example shiitake)
whole grain barley or quinoa
soy "cream"
While boiling the barley or quinoa, it's quite handy to steam the carrots a bit in a strainer above the pot. At the same time, fry the onions and a bit of the garlic with the mushrooms, and add some spices. Then mix everything in a dish, pour over the soy cream and pop it in a preheated oven for a bit. You can garnish with for example some sprouts and parsley, as I did today. Obviously you can put pretty much any vegetables you want in this, whichever ones you prefer, and mix it up in that way.


About thinking

On Friday we went to my brother's place for dinner, together with a few of his friends. We had a good time and ended up discussing food until it was almost midnight. How is it possible that organic food is labeled as something a bit strange that one should be wary of? How can so many people be so truly fooled to actually regard organic, pure and high-quality food as something potentially harmful? It seems people are not thinking at all with their own brains. Shouldn't any sane person understand that plants that grow naturally in the same way they have been growing for their whole existence are better than those that have been manipulated and treated with chemically made substances? Excuse me but wtf can be harmful about natural? Why is the word 'natural' scorned upon? The only explanation is total manipulation and brainwashing of the human mind. Start thinking people. Everyone knows that the only purpose of business is to make money. There is not and never will be anything 'moral' about business, it is only there to financially benefit the ones who own it. Then, add this to the fact that food, medicine, healthcare, etc is business. Do you think medicines are made to make you better? What would happen if medicines cured people? The whole medicine industry would crash because people wouldn't need more medicine. And what would happen if supermarkets sold healthy food? People would be healthy and in no need of medicines. Understand that what is now main-stream is not meant to be good for you. Most things that are advertised are not meant to be good for you. People tend to have the naïve understanding that shops would not sell things that were bad for them. Newspapers would not tell things that were bad for them. Doctors would not prescribe things that were bad for them. And it's not the shopkeepers, journalists or doctors who are bad. They are just owned and controlled by larger parties, often without knowing it. They would not want to harm you, they're just dutifully doing their job. But it's the business behind everything that is harmful. That's what's controlling everything. When we understand that we have come a long way. When we understand that we have a brain of our own that we can trust. The beautiful thing about all this is that we all have a choice. We can choose what to eat and what to read. We can turn off the television if we want to, or we can stop reading the newspaper. Or continue watching and reading but stop believing what they say. We can make our own decisions and conclusions about our own lives and about what is good for us. We can study what we want, the information is out there. The point is, we can choose to be happy and healthy people, superpeople.

My breakfast this morning (I didn't have a photo when I posted about breakfast)

Turmeric & curcumin

This will be a small tribute to a wonderful spice and plant, called turmeric, or curcumin. Not only is it "nature's own antibiotic" but it has also been proven to help fight melanoma and breast cancer. As many of you probably know, antibiotics are very effective, but not all that healthy. So as I just got off a cure of antibiotics, I've decided to continue healing myself with turmeric. I have 1 teaspoon of it with warm water once a day.

Not only does it do all this, it also helps with a variety of digestive disorders, and raw turmeric (the root, which you apparently use much as you would ginger) strengthens cartilage and bone structure. So far, I haven't come across any negative information on this wonderful plant! It is also used in a lot of cosmetic procedures, but I won't get into those. I can just say that apparently it is supposed to be an anti-aging agent.

My morning

Since Emma did a post on her mornings, and we've been talking about our morning routines and how they differ from each other, I decided to post about my mornings as well. Now, as I work at the airport (as a gate agent if you want to know) my work shifts vary quite a lot. For the earliest one I have to wake up at about 3.30am (or about 2.45am if I have to ride my bike to work) so that doesn't leave very much time at all for any lengthy morning routine. The one thing I do every morning, before eating anything, is I have a large glass of water, about half a liter, with 1 teaspoon baking soda in it. This is to drive out all the extra yeast gathered in the intestines from years of eating sugar and toxins.

After this, I eat my breakfast, either at home or at work, consisting of raw porridge with wheatgrass powder, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, oatmeal, bee pollen, flax seeds, blueberries, and anything else I find in the cupboard pretty much. I mix all of this in a bowl and pour soy milk over it, and let it soak overnight. I won't fool you, it looks absolutely disgusting, but I like it. After having had my breakfast, depending on the day, I either go back to bed for about an hour and then for a run, or I just simply start my day, which is what I did today. 
As Emma will be discussing lunch today, I think I will join in on that discussion too in my next post, seeing as on any given day I eat about one meal at home and the rest at work.

Bad vs good vs bad

I wanted to talk about something I have some trouble with whenever I go to the store. Seeing as we live in Finland, it's not all that easy to get local, organic fruits and veggies all year round. In the summer it's easier as our forests are filled to the max with lingonberries and blueberries etc. A few days ago, I had an enormous craving for apples, now easy enough you go to the store and buy some. But then you have the choice between local non-organic ones, or organic ones from south america. My first instinct would be to go for the organic ones anyway, as I don't want to pump my body full of toxins, but once you think a bit more about it, it's not actually that simple. At first one would think that it is obviously better for our dear Mother Earth to get the local ones, as they haven't been flown halfway across the planet to reach my local store. But what about all the toxins sprayed around these poor local apples? That can't be good. Neither for me nor for the Earth. So then you think that the organic ones are better. But they come from, let's say, Peru and are flown thousands of kilometers so that I can buy them (plus most of the time they're wrapped in plastic, a logic I simply do not understand) which is an enormous strain on the Earth. Then I start thinking about the nutritional facts. It's quite obvious that the organic ones should have loads more nutrients than the toxic ones, but how much of it do they lose in the week or so they travel to get to my corner store?

This is something I still have not been able to solve, I simply don't know which alternative's pros weigh out the other one's cons.

I have another issue with soy milk, but let's not get into that right now.

(yay my first post!)

Coconut oil

Ok, we decided to do the superfood thing together. We've divided them between us and we'll do one at a time. Of course there are loads of superfoods, but we'll talk about the ones we use and know about. I'll start with coconut oil today because I just bought a new jar of it.

So coconut oil might not sound very superfoody if your experience of coconut is the bounty bar. The coconut I'm talking about is organic cold-pressed virgin coconut oil. Firtsly, organic of course means that the coconut tree is grown in pure soil without using chemical pesticides. It is then cold-pressed, as opposed to other oils which are treated in high temperatures resulting in loss of important nutrients. Virgin means that the oil is the result of one pressing, not the left overs of others. So the important thing here is to realise that other coconut fats, that are not cold-pressed or organic, don't have much in common with this superfood. The most important component of coconut oil is lauric acid which makes up 50% of the total mass. Lauric acid is antiviral, antibacterial and antiprotozoal, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, etc. Basically, you could call it a natural medicine. The uses of this oil are numerous, it can be used both externally and internally. I use it as a moisturiser instead of body lotion, both on my face and body. It's best absorbed on moist skin after a shower, and it smells great. As a food, I use it when I want something sweet but healthy, here's my favourite recipe:

organic virgin coconut oil
organic porridge oats
organic raw cacao powder (Anna will discuss that soon)
organic sweetener (palm sugar, agave syrup, or honey, we'll get to those later too)
organic crushed flax seeds
anything else you want (organic dried fruits, seeds, nuts)

Mix everything up (use the amounts you feel like), put in cups or muffin forms, and keep in the fridge for ca ½ hour.

Coconut oil can also be used as a spread on bread or as a cooking oil, or mixed into yogurt or raw porridge. These are just some of the uses, but I really encourage you to explore the internet for more information about all the health benefits and uses. My favourite brand is Tropicai, which can be bought in many health food and organic shops.

If you didn't watch the documentary yet, please do so and you will understand a lot about this blog. Now I'm going to sleep, I have to wake up for work at 5am tomorrow morning. I'll be back tomorrow, good night!

Food matters

Let's start with this video, a very good introduction to some of what we will be talking about in this blog. It's a really straightforward documentary about nutrition and health which I think everyone should watch. I'll be back tomorrow with an introduction of some superfoods and how you can use them.

The beginning

Welcome to everyone who found their way to our new blog! This blog is not a project, it's not a guide, and not a diary. It's simply life, our life, which we want to live to the optimum. Here we will talk about our own experiences of a healthy lifestyle, all the while striving towards the best it can be. We're not perfectionists, we just enjoy exploring, and we want to share it all with you.

We are very different from each other, and we will be posting separately about our own separate lives. But we will also write together sometimes, and we promise at least 1 co-post every month. We also both have our own personal blogs, in which we write about our lives on a more everyday and personal level, whereas here we focus on health.

"Health" in itself is a funny word, probably one of the most misused ones there is. Health is not something we consider as a thing separate from yourself. It is you, you are what you feel, and being healthy in every way is for us the same as happiness. If your body is unhealthy, your mind will be too, because it's all connected. Therefore we would rather skip the word health and focus on the word "super" instead, because that's what we all can be, and what we're all born to be. Superbeings.

We are not trying to change anyone or tell you that we know better. The fact is, we don't know much at all, and that's the whole point of this journey. You're welcome to read, comment, test our theories, give us ideas and suggest new things. The purpose of this blog is pure enjoyment of life, not a strict striving towards perfection. Join in and let's explore superlife together.
