"supplement amino acid by peanut"

Wheat flour does not contain much of essential amino acid, which is the nutrition the source of life.

However, if you spread peanut batter on bread, you can take amino acid from peanut.

Amino acid constitutes protein that is about 20% of constituent of our body.

Protein is very important ingredient for our body, which makes skin, muscle and more.

Algin that is contained in amino acid, promotes blood flow.

Also it prevents cold hands and/or feet with Vitamin E.

Healthy Diet Combinations 6: Oatmeal & Orange Juice

Smart Diet Combinations #6 is

Oatmeal & Orange Juice

"Control LDL (bad cholesterol) and Prevent heart attack"

Taking orange juice & oatmeal, which prevents the oxidation of LDL.
Orange juice contains Vitamin C that is strong anti-oxidant.
Oatmeal contains SDF (soluble dietary fiber) that absorbs LDL from intestinal wall.
So blood concentration of LDL is lowered.
Taking those together, which reduces the chance of heart attack as half of eating separately.

Other foods that reduce LDL:
Grapegruit, mango, bluefish (blue-back), agar-agar

Cinnamon Oatmeal with Orange Juice
Oatmeal was not in general in Japan (when I was there. I don't know about now).
I do not think I have had oatmeal in there.
Kellogg's corn flakes is very popular since I was child.

Sugar Pon & Brown Sugar Pon
Those were my favorite (゚∀^*)d

Healthy Diet Combinations 5: Soybean & Salmon

Smart Diet Combinations #5

Soybean & Salmon

"Isoflavonoid increases effect of Vitamin D"

Isoflavonoid that is contained in soybean increases amount of Vitamin D in tissues.
Vitamin D has the preventive effect of cancer.
So taking foods that contain Vitamin D such as mushroom, salmon, bonito or sardine with soybean, which is very effective for prevention of cancer.

Vitamin D:

Vitamin D accelerates the absorption of calcium.
If you take calcium without Vitamin D, the absorption is reduced.
So it is important to take calcium with Vitamin D.
In addition, Vitamin D accelerates regrowth of bones and activates functions of nerve and muscles.
Also it controls abnormal cell division and growth in colon cancer and breast cancer.
And it enhances functions of cardiovascular and immune systems.

Anti-inflammation pigment that is contained in peel of apples, reduce risks of allergy, heart attack, dementia, Parkinson's disease, prostate and/or lung cancer.

Polyphenol that is contained in chocolate, grape, red wine and black tea, reduce risks of arteriosclerosis and cancer.

Polyphenol controls active oxygen.
Also it is effective to stroke and arteriosclerosis, controls cholesterol in the blood, prevent high blood pressure and promotes hormones.

City Life Rural Life

Most city dwellers may think,
"rural life is healthy, because air is clean, foods are fresh and moving body in daily life".
However, Country Health Ranking reported, "city dwellers are healthier and have longer life than rural people".

Wall Street Journal announced that many city area used to have problems such as pollutions, crimes, traffic jams and infectious diseases, but these are getting better now.
On the other hand, obesity rate in rural area is higher than city area.
Over-weight rate in children in city area is 30%, and 36% in rural.
More people are in lack of exercise and/or smoking in rural area compare to city area, which induce diabetes, stroke, heart attack and high blood pressure.

Suicide rate in city areas is 13 out of 100,000 people and 18 in rural.
In truth, most healthy area is the suburbs.
There is least number of early death, premature birth, suicide and STD.

Of course these data are not applied to all areas.
Some researches report people in some rural area have long life too.

Age, income and educational background are highly possible to be the factors of 'the city healthier than rural'.
Average income in city area is $53,000, $39,000 in rural area and $60,000 in suburbs
And rural people tend to have lower educational background than other areas.
Another reason is the medical support.
25% of people live in rural area in U.S., but only 10% of medical practitioners are there.
Ambulance comes to you when you got a car accident about in 10 minutes in average in city area, but it takes 19 minutes in rural area.
Therefore 66% of traffic deaths are occurred in rural area.

On the other hand, children who grew up in rural area have less number of asthma, allergy, and autoimmune disorders.

Do you want to spend your old age in countryside?
Or in the city?

Lemon & Kale

Kale contains plenty of iron.

Vitamin C helps your body absorb iron.

So you can take iron effectively taking with vitamin C contained vegetable or juice.

On the other hand,

Calcium and Phenol that is contained in coffee and tea prevent absorption of iron.

So you better not take them together.

Healthy Diet Combinations 2

It is continued from last post.

"Smart Diet Combinations"

Almond & Yogurt

Fat-soluble vitamins* are well absorbed to your body when you take those with fat.

Almond (contain plenty Vitamin E) with yogurt is good combination.

To take carrot, broccoli, peanuts (contain plenty beta carotene) with olive oil are good combinations, too.

By the way, Vitamin A is NOT contained in any vegetable.

Most of 'deeply colored vegetables' contain beta carotene that transform to Vitamin A in your body.

So beta carotene is called 'provitamin'.

Vitamin A deficiency may induce anemia.

I treat anemia by acupuncture and herbs,

but I highly recommend you take enough vitamins and prevent anemia. v(。・・。)

*Fat-soluble vitamins:
Vitamin A, D, E, K

Healthy Diet Combinations 1

I found an article that is referring about 'Smart Diet Combinations'.

This article is refferring about the foods that you usually see,

which are not particular Chinese herbs or the foods that hard to get.

Tomato & Avocado

Tomato contains plenty lycopene*.

Lycopene is absorbed well to your body when you take it with fat.

Avocado "the Butter of the Forest" is good combination with lycopene.

If you eat tomato as salad, using oil dressing is good.

And if you cook tomato, your body absorbs lycopene more.


Lycopene is the red color of tomato.

Lycopene is a strong antioxidant, which prevents lifestyle diseases**.

And lycopene removes acrive oxygen that is made on skin by ultraviolet.

**Lifestyle diseases

Alzheimer's diseases, Arteriosclerosis, Asthma, Cancer, Chronic Liver Disease/Cirrhosis, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Diabetes (type II), Heart disease, Metabolic syndrome, Nephritis/CRF, Osteoporosis, Stroke, Depression, Obesity, and so on...

I am posting this "Smart Diet Combinations" as a series.

Why don't I post all at once?

You know that Ψ(`∀´)Ψ

Japanese Acupuncture in Beverly Hills

We -Acupuncturists- need to attend at least 50 hours of classes in 2 years to maintain our licenses.

Of course I am doing too.

Not only those but also I attend some other classes for my knowledge.

One of them is a online class.

We study "Nan Gyou (difficult scripture)" a Chinese Medical book that was written in 4th century.

And this copy has Japanese explanations in between Chinese original writings.

These Japanese explanations were written hundreds years ago too.

So it is much more difficult for me, because old Japanese are so different to modern Japanese.

I believe the difference is much more than British English and American English.

And Dr. Ooue explain for us with modern Japanese.

I like this class very much.

This class helps my Diagnosis capability.

This class is performed every Wednesday at 10pm.

Yes! 10pm
in Japanese time 。・゚゚・(>д<;)・゚゚・。

,which is 6am in PCT.

It will be 5am after Daylight Saving Time is done. (★-ω-)zzZZ


Of course I am NOT morning person _| ̄|〇zzzZZZ

iPhone 5

I respect ancient Chinese people.

We -Japanese- use Chinese letters (characters: Kanji).

Japanese peculiar alphabets "Hiragana" and "Katakana" also originated Kanji.

Many cultures came from China to Japan such as writing brush, martial arts, and so on...

In California, you can find a lot of Chinese restaurant here and there.

Of course "Acupuncture" is originated in China.

But recently...,

I don't think iPhone 5 originated in China.

An iPhone 5 is already been sold in China
(click here to read news).

Don't disappoint me...

This picture is real iPhone 5... probably (´Д`。)
(I am not good for i-products.(〃'∇'〃) e.g. My phone is Android)
