Tuna, being high in mercury is best eaten not more than three times a month. The best seeds are flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Flax seeds are so small they are best ground and sprinkled on cereal. Alternatively, use flax seed oil, for example in salad dressings.

    problem with slow breathing – on my own, exactly as described – and I’ve since witnessed many others enjoy even more dramatic
    results. High blood pressure may lead to several heart
    diseases like stroke. It may help to think of high blood
    pressure by thinking of your arteries as a garden hose.
    Since that time, I’ve advised dozens of women with hypertension to see if they can get
    a B12 shot from their physician, and failing that, start taking B12
