Is it true that sunbathing increases the risk of skin cancer?

Although it is a common believe, research show the opposite. 

For example, a study showed that the cases of melanoma are increasing enormously amongst people who work indoors – and who have 3 to 9 times less exposure to the sun, than those who work outdoors. 

On the other hand, countries with the most sun exposure have lower rates of skin cancer. 

Why?
Data indicates that what increases the risk of skin cancer is sunburning or being exposed to the sun intermittently.
People who are exposed to the sun every day without burning (instead of tanning and getting sunburned once a year) receive all the benefits of the sun without increasing the risk of cancer. 

Vitamin D and the benefits of the sun

One of the biggest benefits of the sun is vitamin D, which your body produces when the skin is in contact with daylight, specifically with ultraviolet

¿Es peligroso asolearse?

Aunque es una creencia común, las investigaciones muestran lo contrario.

Por ejemplo, este estudio mostró que los casos de melanoma están aumentando enormemente entre las personas que trabajan en interiores —y que tienen de 3 a 9 veces menos exposición al sol que quienes trabajan en exteriores.
Por otra parte, los países en los que hay mayor exposición al sol tienen índices más bajos de cáncer de piel.

Los datos indican que lo que aumenta el riesgo de cáncer de piel es quemarse o exponerse al sol de forma intermitente.

Las personas que se exponen al sol todos los días sin quemarse (en lugar de broncearse y quemarse una vez al año) reciben todos los beneficios del sol sin aumentar el riesgo de cáncer.

Uno de los mayores beneficios del sol es la vitamina D, que tu cuerpo produce cuando la piel está en contacto con la luz

How to relieve constipation without drugs?

How often is it ideal to go to the bathroom to evacuate?

This is one of the questions I receive most frequently. When I was in Medical School, it was said that normal is what is usual for you: if you generally go once a week, then that’s normal for you. If you usually go three times a day, it ‘s normal for you. Is this correct?

We can assume a more analytical approach, why do we go to the bathroom? Why does our body have the need to eliminate? Evacuating is the main strategy that our body uses to cleanse itself. How often does it have to be cleaned? Every time it has waste, which are generated with all the processes of our organism, including walking and breathing, but especially when eating.

That’ s why old medicines indicate that the ideal thing is to go to the bathroom the number of times you eat a day. If you do two or three strong meals a day, ideally you will evacuate two or three times a day. 

Why is it important to make sure that we evacuate regularly?

When you don’t evacuate regularly, you’re reabsorbing the toxins and the debris that your body needed to eliminate.

This toxicity in the body can cause:

Permeable intestine: the intestine is perforated and allows toxins and

¿Cómo aliviar el estreñimiento sin fármacos?

Es una de las preguntas que recibo más frecuentemente. Cuando estaba en la escuela de Medicina se decía que lo normal es lo que sea usual para ti: si generalmente vas una vez a la semana, entonces es normal para ti; si generalmente vas tres veces al día, es normal para ti. ¿Es correcto esto?

Podemos asumir un enfoque más analítico: Evacuar es la estrategia principal que nuestro cuerpo utiliza para limpiarse. ¿Cada cuánto tiene que limpiarse? Cada que tiene desechos, que se generan con todos los procesos de nuestro organismo, desde caminar hasta respirar, pero sobre todo al comer.

Por eso las medicinas antiguas indican que Si haces dos o tres comidas fuertes al día, idealmente evacuarás dos o tres veces al día.

Cuando no evacúas con regularidad, estás reabsorbiendo las toxinas y el debris que tu cuerpo necesitaba eliminar.

Esta toxicidad en el cuerpo puede ocasionar:

Fasting to regenerate your body?

Have you noticed that when a child is sick, he doesn ‘t want to eat?
Maybe you’ ve also noticed it if you have a pet: when they are sick, they just don ‘t eat. It’ s a very natural response from the body. 
When you fast, you give the digestive system a break. We used to do it naturally: fasting is a tool that has been used since ancient days. Our ancetors didn ‘t have food available at all times of the day, for which our body evolved to work without the necessity to eat constantly. 
Have you heard that it is ideal to eat every 3 hours in order to keep a high metabolism?
This idea challenges the whole history of our evolution. We have less hours of fasting every time, and this is one of the reasons why cases of chronic diseases have increased so much. 

Fasting has been used for thousands of years for spiritual, religious and health reasons. today science has proved that its benefits are quite varied:

It increases energy
It improves the working of the brain
It helps to lose weight
It reduces inflammation
It promotes longevity
It decreases sugar and food cravings
It increases physical performance
It helps regulate the balance of blood sugar
It improves hormonal balance

There are many cases of people showing excellent results when using fasting to reverse type 2 diabetes and to improve conditions such as obesity, cancer, polycystic ovaries, fatty liver, mitochondrial dysfunction, inability to lose weight, leaky gut or arthritis, among others. .
What happens in your body when you fast?
Digestion is a process that requires an incredible amount of energy. And our body tends to give it priority. 

What would happen if our body didn’ t give our digestion priority? what would happen if the food went bad inside our organism?

In order to avoid this, the body is engaged in digesting and postpones other activities: among them, the tasks of cleaning and regenerating. When you fast you give it a digestive rest in which your body naturally turns on signs of regeneration, cleansing, detoxification, balance and  reduces inflamamtion and can even correct cells that are receiving wrong signals.

This is thanks to a cellular process called autophagy: the

¿Ayunar para regenerar tu cuerpo?

Quizá lo hayas observado también si tienes una mascota: cuando están enfermos, simplemente no comen. Es una respuesta natural del cuerpo.
Cuando ayunas, le das un descanso al sistema digestivo. Nuestros ancestros no tenían alimentos disponibles a cualquier hora del día, por lo que nuestro cuerpo evolucionó para funcionar sin necesidad de comer constantemente.

Esta idea reta toda la historia de nuestra evolución. Estamos pasando cada vez menos horas de ayuno, y ésta es una de las razones por las que han aumentado tanto los casos de enfermedades crónicas.
El ayuno se ha utilizado durante miles de años por razones espirituales, religiosas y de salud.
•  Aumenta la energía
•  Mejora el funcionamiento del cerebro
•  Ayuda a perder peso
•  Reduce la inflamación
•  Promueve la longevidad
•  Disminuye los antojos de azúcar y comida
•  Incrementa el rendimiento físico
•  Ayuda a regular el balance de azúcar en la sangre

How to stop being a slave to diets?

How to stop being a slave to diets?

Has it ever happened to you that you get on a diet and they tell you that you can’t eat some food and then that is exactly what you crave?

Why does this happen? What if it’s because of your cellular metabolism?

Cellular metabolism is the functioning of cells. If a vehicle works very well, it means its metabolism is good. The same thing happens with the body: if I have good energy or if I have a healthy weight, they are the result of my metabolism. If I have problems with migraines or allergies it means I don’t have a good metabolism. It’s all related to the way my cells are operating. 

What if the reason why you gain weight is not that you are overeating, but the way your cells are working?

It’s not that you are exceeding with

¿Cómo dejar de ser esclavo de las dietas?

¿Por qué sucede eso? ¿Qué tal si es por tu metabolismo celular?
El metabolismo celular es el funcionamiento de las células. Si un vehículo funciona muy bien, significa que su metabolismo está muy bien. Con el cuerpo sucede lo mismo: si tengo buena energía o si tengo un peso saludable, son resultados de mi metabolismo. Si tengo problemas de migrañas o alergias significa que no tengo un buen metabolismo. Todo está relacionado con la manera en que están operando mis células.

No es que te estés excediendo con la comida y por eso subes de peso, sino que el metabolismo celular que tienes te está llevando a comer de esa manera y a tener antojos. Se convierte en un círculo vicioso, y las dietas que hacemos generalmente mantienen este ciclo.
El problema no es sólo el peso, sino que el sobrepeso viene con muchas otras consecuencias.
A mí
