Cholesterol is produced in the liver and is used to repair and maintain cell membranes and manufacture steroid
hormones, vitamin D and bile acids. Fighting high cholesterol with chemicals is a very bad idea.
Lifestyle: 09/08/14 The FDA (Fools and Dummies Association) just can’t decide if common antibacterial
compounds (used in everything from hand sanitizers to deodorants) are causing health problems or not. Meanwhile,
scientists are reporting that many pregnant women and their fetuses are at health risk when exposed to these
substances. Triclosan and triclocarban, two of the most commonly used germ-killers in soaps and other everyday
products, are now being found in EVERY urine samples from EVERY pregnant woman screened. What is worse
than that is it is also being found in the umbilical cord blood samples - meaning that it can transfer to developing
fetuses. The latest evidence shows that these antimicrobial compounds - used in more than 2,000 everyday
products including toothpastes, soaps, detergents, carpets, paints, school supplies and toys - can lead to low birth
weight, developmental problems and even antibiotic resistance. Don’t be a sheople people! Avoid these unnatural
chemicals at all costs.
Food and Nutrition: 09/09/14 Resistance training… Blood sugar levels tell you how much sugar -AKA
glucose- is circulating in the bloodstream. When you get too much glucose in the blood, the body releases insulin,
which enables cells to absorb the excess glucose. The more sugary foods or drinks you consume, the more insulin is
released. The problem arises when too much insulin trains cells to become resistant to insulin. The net effect is that it
takes more and more insulin to force the cells to remove excess glucose from the blood. At that point blood sugar
levels stay elevated, insulin levels stay elevated and you become pre-diabetic. One of the best ways to prevent or
reverse this deleterious process is to avoid high glycemic foods like white flour, sugar, white rice and white
potatoes. Instead, consume low glycemic foods that have lots of fiber and protein like beans, whole grains, lean
proteins and nuts.
Medical Madness: 09/09/14 Does Ebola kill the most victims or does standard medical treatment kill more?
The latest Ebola outbreak has caused more deaths than any other on record with up to 90% of infected people dying
from it - or are they dying from the wrong medical care? Present treatments use intravenous fluids, antibiotics, fever
reducing medicines, anti-clotting chemicals, blood pressure medicines and oxygen. The fact is that all this
“medicine” works contrary to the body’s natural healing processes. First of all, the healing capacity of the body
depends upon nutritional sufficiency and cellular respiration and Ebola victims have critical nutritional requirements
that affect the outcome. Natural and nutrition medicine uses things like un-patentable magnesium chloride, iodine,
selenium, vitamin C and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) that support the body’s innate healing capacity rather
than toxic pharmaceuticals that cripple the immune system and further damage nutritional status. Unfortunately, Big
Pharma pride is going to allow this Ebola mayhem to continue.
Vitamins, Herbs and Supplements: 09/09/14 Hyaluronic acid - HA - is a water holding molecule that
works as a “space filler” and cushioning agent in the body. HA cushions the joints and nerves, hydrates the skin and
hair, and also fills the eye. HA is found in virtually every part of the body and is best known for its beauty-improving
skin hydration and stimulating production of collagen in the skin. In fact, HA helps to retain over a 1000 times its
weight in water within the cells of skin. But HA is so much more than a simple beauty panacea as it also works hard
as an antioxidant and free radical scavenger with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Did you know that
HA fights gum disease and helps the gums regenerate healthy connective tissue in the gums? HA is also critical for
the removal of waste matter from cells where there is little blood circulation. Hyaluronic acid promotes faster wound
healing, increased energy, improved muscular strength and enhanced mental alertness. HA production naturally
declines with age and by the time we reach our mid-40’s, the synthesis of HA is roughly half that required by the
Daily HealthTrivia: 09/10/14 Glossing over the trivia: Most people don't realize that it is agriculture - not
transportation - that is the greatest contributor to greenhouse gases globally. This fact is glossed over by the Al Gore
groupies and hundreds of other green groups.
