Part of NuSpecies mission is to protect life and live compassionately.

Did you know that a pet can be good for your health? The following are a few health benefits of having a pet obtained from this post from the CDC and these 11 studies: Lower stress Being more social Being more active Pain relief Heart health boost Why rescue over breeders? Each year, approximately 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized (they're involuntarily killed by injection or gas chamber).  Sometimes only due to overcrowding. You're saving two lives: the pet you're adopting and the one that can take the open space in the shelter. Mixed breeds tend to have less genetic health problems.…

One of the major obstacles when trying to be healthier is changing your lifestyle to create time to learn new habits. Batch cooking, strategic grocery shopping, cooking with ingredients you've never used before, using new tools or skills, and getting your tastebuds to acclimate back to their natural affinity for clean, fresh food. Until then, how can you improve what you're already doing? Many people are eating out most of the day. Usually at least for breakfast and lunch and in a lot of cases dinner too. By eating out I mean any food you didn't make yourself. A lot of people are ordering out and eating at home for dinner. I still qualify that as eating out. When it comes to your health, it doesn't matter where you're sitting, the excess amounts of processed fat, sugar, salt and flour that are used in a lot of restaurant cooking is…

Step 1: You have to eat veggies. Don't Over Achieve - Just Add It In Whatever fruits and veggies you like, add them to what you were going to eat and I suggest eating them first so you don’t “accidentally” get full. Step 2: Now Get Your Children to Follow Your Lead 1. Don't give them another option. I promise, hunger makes things taste better. They're not going to starve. Of course, don't make them eat anything you don't like. That's just not right. 2. They can't have any snacks or "junk" until they've eaten "energy" foods. Avoid terms like "healthy" because once they relate foods they don't like with the word "healthy", they'll become close minded about anything deemed healthy. I like to use goal-oriented terms that describe what the food is doing for the body, so it's a goal they're accomplishing by consuming that food. I say thinks like, "This will…

Most sunscreen is very toxic to you and your children. This is one of those summer essentials that we don’t think is optional and we don’t think we have an alternative. Most offensive of all, when it comes to using sunscreen on our children, we often assume that if it’s made for children, it must be safe. “They” wouldn’t let our children be harmed, right? Wrong. The Environmental Working Group is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that is dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. They do the exhaustive research that we don’t have time to do, they tell us what toxins are in our products and they rate those products and companies so we can make easy decisions about what to buy for our families. These 8 facts about sunscreen will get the ball rolling. Read here. Ready to make the switch? This simple and easy guide to shopping…

Day 4: Seek Adventure & Break Up Monotony  Do something you always wanted to or go somewhere you always wanted to go. Are you off of work today? Go somewhere you keep forgetting to go or do something that you’ve really wanted to do. Pay for a babysitter and just spend time alone or with your partner. Find a free art installation, art gallery or free show. Google is helpful with that. Expose yourself to something you’ve never seen before or don’t understand. Are you working today? Just break up the routine. Drive a different way home. Re-evaluate your evening and morning routines. Is everything you burden yourself with absolutely necessary? And is it all more important than the other things you put off or deny yourself? Drop everything and play with your children. Give your usual tv shows a break and try watching a show that you haven’t heard…

Getting breakfast or lunch while out today? Say “no” when you’re asked if you’d like to add gravy. Eat a salad for lunch? Try it without oil today. I always add ingredients to my salad that have natural juices like tomatoes, avocado, cucumber,  and grapes. With a squirt of lemon, it all combines and makes a great taste. Cooking dinner this evening? See if you can cut the amount of oil you use in half. You'd be surprised how little oil you can actually use to accomplish the same purpose. Comment below and tell me: What is your biggest concern about not using oil? What will be the hardest part about not using oil for you? Did you succeed or struggle? How? From Forks Over Knives: "We are baffled that certain oils are presented as “health” foods. Olive oil is not a health food. Neither is coconut, grapeseed, flaxseed, or…

Prostate Cancer is the #1 Killer of Men of African Ancestry Outside of Africa As you may have heard in various news reports on the state of human health, cancer cases and other diseases are on the rise. Humans are also developing new diseases at higher rates. There is no clear evidence as to why this is happening. What’s causing the human body to decay in this particular way and why this is happening to even the youngest of us is a mystery. Why are so many parents and grandparents outliving their children and grandchildren? And most importantly, what are humanity’s options to live better and longer? NuSpecies believes the body was always capable of maintaining, improving and rebuilding health. In cases of diseases or any health issues, you have to rebuild your body in order for the body to rid itself of decay and diseases. NuSpecies’ mission is to…

And what that’s telling you about your body systems Most people who are interested in NuSpecies already know about using herbal extracts, plant extracts and whole foods to promote their health. They use herbs all the time—not just in their cooking, but also in teas, tonics, tinctures and salves. They feel comfortable soaking, crushing, juicing and infusing. These are smart and capable people. Although they’re using ancient practices, they’re ahead of their time, even in 2017. Now as more people are following their lead—learning to use this herb to alleviate a certain symptom, or that herb to promote a certain body system—there’s a rush to manufacture commercial products to fit their needs. There’s just one problem, not all herbs work for all people. To explain why, and how to pick the right herbal formulas for certain health goals, here’s what I’ve learned after 10 years in the field. Why do…

If you’re familiar with NuSpecies’ Elmont health center and you park in the parking lot behind our building, then you’re familiar with the frustration of trying to exit onto the main road when you’re leaving. Last week when I was leaving, I drove to the Linden Blvd exit on the grocery store side of the building and braced myself for a long wait as the double lane traffic of impatient horn-beepers all squished each other up against the red light at the intersection with Elmont Rd. Normally, no matter how assertively I push out towards the lane making it clear that I’m dependent on their mercy, the people stare straight forward in their cars to avoid eye contact with me and speed up to make sure I can’t pull out in front of them. On this day, as soon as I pulled up to the exit of the parking lot…

By the third month of the ReNu Challenge you’ve probably noticed that some challenges repeat each month: Move Your Body, Drink Water, Eat Veggies, Eat Fruits. These are fundamental parts of a healthy lifestyle and even the most disciplined of us needs reinforcing of these actions from time-to-time. For those of us that don’t have a habit of these actions yet, I know it will take a while before they become regular practices for you. That’s why I repeat them in each challenge. In order to repeat them, I could only have 3 new challenges each month. This month I got some great inspiration for new challenges from Connie Otice, NuSpecies’ Executive Manager, and I wanted to include as many of them as possible. I also thought that if you’ve been following this challenge each month, that maybe you’re ready to try two actions in one day as an extra…
