It is commonly caused by chronic stress from any source—emotional, physical, mental, or environmental— that exceeds the body’s capacity to adjust well to the demands placed on it by the stress.

Time for Probiotics

Time for Probiotics

Best Probiotics Ever

Ever since I took a round of antibiotics a few years ago for an upper respiratory infection, I’ve had a challenge with my gut health.  I’ve had to take an herbal supplement to stay regular. Then my colonic therapist recommended Probiotic 225. It’s been a life changer for sure. The real test came in the last couple of weeks when I was out of stock. I noticed a big difference.  Never again. You know I always let you know when I have excellent products. But don’t get this product from Amazon.  My colonic therapist said she had some clients that did and it was not the same. Something is not right with the one they carry. You must know your source when it comes to probiotics.

Quercetin Fights Viral Infections

Quercetin is a type of flavonoid antioxidant that is found in leafy greens, tomatoes, berries and broccoli. It’s  a “plant pigment,” which is exactly why it’s found in deeply colored, nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables. According to numerous studies, quercetin plays an important role in fighting free radical damage, the effects of aging and inflammation. According to the Department of Pathology and Diagnostics at the University of Verona in Italy, quercetin and other flavonoids are anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic.

Banish Fear

Banish Fear

FEAR NOT LITTLE LAMB

These have been troubling times for many people. I’ve heard from scores of people who are scared, whether it’s Covid or the election. But I want to say, “Fear not.”

You may remember the story of the Israelites in Exodus 14. They had just escaped the tyrannical enslavement of Pharaoh in Egypt. They were crossing the desert on their way to the promise land when they came to an impasse at the Red Sea. And to make matters worse, Pharaoh had decided he didn’t want to let them go. After all, that was a lot of free labor just lost. He sent his army to hall them on back. So talk about between a lake and a hard place….

Then God parts the Red Sea so that a wall of water stands on each side and He even dries out a path for them to walk over to the other side. They get the whole nation across and then they see the soldiers with their horses and chariots coming their way at breakneck speed. They are standing there tired, hungry and terrified. Their feet hurt and they had just wanted to sit down for a chicken dinner, but now they are so scared they couldn’t possibly eat.

At the moment that it’s  looking totally impossible, the wheels start wobbling on the chariots. That spooks the soldiers and they attempt to turn around. And that’s when God lets the water walls go back down. They all drown. And God is looking at the Israelites saying they didn’t need to get their stress hormones all worked up. He had it all under control.

Juice Powder Superfood

Juice Powder Superfood

The Two TOP Superfood Contenders

Have you ever wondered why certain foods are called “superfoods” and if they really are better than other foods? Research shows that some foods truly are super healthy and stand out above the rest when it comes to health and healing. The Macmillan Dictionary defines “superfood” as “a food that is considered to be very good for your health and that may even help some medical conditions.”

Here are they are:

Watercress

Watercress, like beet juice, has been shown in studies to lower blood pressure. It contains similar high levels of the same nutrients found in beets. Beet juice was shown to lower blood pressure in three hours when people drank an 8.5 ounce glass of beet juice. With the watercress study, participants lowered their diastolic blood pressure by an average of 3.7 mm Hg in just three days. In other words, rats who ate watercress had lower blood pressure levels than the rats using medication to treat high blood pressure.

Sunlight Benefits for Body and Mind

Sunlight Benefits for Body and Mind

5 Ways to Supplement Sunlight Exposure

Scientific research is shedding new light on the many benefits we derive from being exposed to the sun’s rays; something our primitive ancestors naturally took advantage of. But as the human race has evolved, many of us have gotten further and further away from the sun, quite literally. We live and work inside climate-controlled environments and wear clothing and sunscreen that covers or protects most of the body from the sun’s harshest rays. While our skin is important, so is sun exposure and the many positive benefits it confers on the body and the mind.

In fact, a study from the Journal of Internal Medicine correlated the health of 30,000 Swedish women with risk of death over a 20-year period. The researchers found that the risk of death from all causes doubled for the Swedish women who tended to avoid the sun compared to women who got the most sun. This was a dose-dependent benefit, meaning that the more sun exposure a woman got on a regular basis, the lower her risk of death during the two decades-long study.

This sunshine-related health benefit remained significant even after the study authors adjusted the data for income, obesity, tobacco use and exercise. According to this study, completely avoiding the sun might increase the risk of premature mortality as much as being a pack-a-day cigarette smoker.1

In another recent study, researchers presented tentative evidence showing that red and near-infrared light, both present in sunlight, could explain the associations between sunlight exposure and better health status. Body irradiation with red and near-infrared light, usually termed as photobiomodulation (PBM), have demonstrated preliminary evidence of a potential clinical benefit for chronic diseases.2

Cellulite, Arthritis, and Mental Fog…

Cellulite, Arthritis, and Mental Fog…

Detox Your Lymphatic System!

Cellulite, Arthritis, and Mental Fog…

The lymphatic system has multiple purposes. Two important functions include bathing cells with nutrients and carrying away waste. However, lymph doesn’t always drain properly on its own. Sometimes lymph nodes become congested and/or swollen, affecting the flow of lymph in their vicinity. On the face and neck specifically, this can lead to clogged pores, acne, slowed healing, dull or dehydrated skin, and puffiness.

Cleansing your lymphatic system is crucial in your ability to heal and prevent disease. It’s a supportive detoxification system that works with the immune system, digestive system, and nervous system.  Many holistic health care professionals believe a toxic lymphatic system is an underlying contributor to everything from cellulite to cancer. Indeed, cancer often metastasizes through the lymphatic system.

Vitality 5800 Juicer

Vitality 5800 Juicer

NEW JUICER – BEST JUICER I’VE USED!!

There’s a new juicer on the market that I’ve been using every day. The Namawell Vitality 5800.

I never thought I would fall in love with a masticating juicer….but I have.

Here’s what I like about it:

The Namawell Vitality 5800
  • Juice lasts longer; can store at least 48 hr.  It doesn’t oxidize quickly like juice made from a centrifugal juicer
  • You get significantly more juice than with a centrifugal juicer. 
  • It offers a very dry pulp. With my centrifugal juicer, a lot of pulp was leftover
  • Preserves more vitamins and enzymes because of the pressing and slow action
  • Makes juice taste better
  • Quiet machine

Inflammation and Immune Response

Inflammation and Immune Response

Inflammation Interferes with the Body’s Immune Response

According to Sarah Varney who writes for Kaiser Health News: “A healthy immune system turns inflammation on and off as needed, calling on white blood cells and sending out proteins to fight infection. Blood tests show that obese people and people with related metabolic risk factors such as high blood pressure and elevated blood sugar levels experience a state of chronic mild inflammation; the inflammation turns on and stays on.” Although scientists are still researching its causes, it seems chronic inflammation interferes with the body’s immune response.

The New Word on Zinc and Vitamin D3

The New Word on Zinc and Vitamin D3

Zinc and Vitamin D3 Can Keep You From Contracting Covid

Did you see the show this week on Fox News with the doctor who said if you take zinc and vitamin D3, you stand a good chance of not getting Covid?

I found some new information on zinc that I think is important as we head into cold and flu season.

  • Researchers from Spain found that people with lower blood levels of zinc who were admitted to hospital with Covid-19 tended to fare worse than those with healthier levels
  • A laboratory study in 2010 showed that zinc inhibited the activity and replication of another coronavirus, SARS-CoV which caused an outbreak in 2002
  • Theoretically, taking zinc during the early stages of COVID-19 may reduce symptoms of severity and the duration of the illness, but this has not been proven
  • Zinc has been shown to reduce the duration of the common cold
  • Zinc supplements should not be taken at too high a dose or for long periods as they can cause toxicity. It is not water-soluble and can build up in your body. I recommend 15 mg.

Zinc is an essential mineral that our body cannot make itself. This means we have to obtain it from our diet or supplements. Ginger is a good source of zinc, which is great added to your juice recipes.

Zinc has many important roles in our body, for example:

  • It is responsible for the activity of more than 300 different enzymes in our body
  • It is vital for our immune system function including maintaining the integrity of our skin and for cells mediating immunity such as neutrophils and killer cells. Studies have shown people who are deficient in zinc are more susceptible to infection
  • It is required for protein and DNA synthesis
  • It is important for wound healing
  • Supports normal growth and development during childhood, adolescence, and pregnancy
  • Ensures the proper functioning of our senses (taste and smell). A deficiency causes loss of taste and smell.

Vitamin D3

University of Chicago Medicine researchers led by Dr, David Meltzer, the university’s chief of hospital medicine, found a relationship between vitamin D deficiency and risk of developing COVID-19.

  • More than 40 percent of the U.S. population is deficient in vitamin D.
  • Vitamin D requires exposure to sunlight to activate in the body, a unique characteristic of vitamin D3.
  • A recent meta-analysis of 40 research studies found that daily, long-term doses of vitamin D seemed to protect against acute respiratory infections. Other studies also have found associations between vitamin D levels and COVID-19 susceptibility.

Probiotics & Your Gut Health

Probiotics & Your Gut Health

Boost Your Hormone and Gut Health!

Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates (fiber) that induce the growth of beneficial microorganisms (probiotics) in the gut. In the gastrointestinal tract prebiotics can feed probiotics. Prebiotics are typically Inulin fibers that are not digested in your small intestine; therefore, they make it into your colon where they serve as food for the probiotics.
