Hypothyroidism is a definite symptom of something going wrong in the body. The medical treatment for
hypothyroidism merely manipulates the thyroid hormone levels with little or no regard to causes.
Daily health posts for July 24, 2014:
Lifestyle: Exercise burnout and overtaxing the body: Exercising without breaks brings BURNOUT! Exercise
burnout is accompanied with a loss of motivation that can to lead to giving up on exercise completely. Exercising
day after day after day can actually bring resentment toward exercise times and dreading your workout is one of the
first signs of lost momentum. When you exercise too hard and/or too long you can also overtax the body and cause
injury. Exercise brings stress and strain on the muscles - usually a good thing, but not taking sufficient rest in
between workouts can lead to injuries. All that said; give it a rest every once in a while. Unless you under the
guidance of a professional; try working out every other day. A brisk and lengthy walk can also be just as good for you
as 20 minutes of hard working out. Walking downhill is a great workout.
Food and Nutrition: Take your blueberries and freeze them and what happens? You actually improve the
already powerful antioxidant punch according to the latest study. The blue in the blueberry is from anthocyanins which
are a group of antioxidant compounds and freezing the blueberries actually improves the availability of these
antioxidants. This is because the ice crystals that form during freezing restructure the plant tissues, making the
anthocyanins more available. Want to know the best part? Blueberries frozen for 5 months still retained their original
potency. Blueberries help eliminate cancer-causing free radicals in the body and are great for your brain and
nervous system along with the cardiovascular system, eyes and even the urinary tract. Could blueberries be one of
the world's healthiest food? Some people say they are. Make mine organic!
Medical Madness: So, where will the next deadly flu outbreak come from? Odds are one out of five that it will
come from our own government within the next decade. How can that even happen? It is because the government
high-security germ labs are run by people experimenting with and developing deadly flu strains. And this is what
happens: A few months ago the USDA asked for some ordinary flu virus samples from the CDC and got way more
than they expected. The CDC actually accidently shipped a deadly flu strain called H5N1. The USDA recognized the
error (supposedly) before anyone was exposed but then failed to report the incident to the head honchos for six
weeks. An isolated incidence perhaps? Not according to the CDC which reports that high-containment laboratories
have errors and incidents on almost a weekly basis. Recently some anthrax was mishandled and put lives at risk.
We won’t have to wait for the enemy to weaponize some deadly virus or bacteria - our government will do that to us
Vitamins, Herbs and Supplements: The latest news out is that zinc is one of the most important
essential trace elements in human nutrition. The adult has up to three grams of zinc distributed in organs, tissues,
bones, fluids, and cells. About half of the world's population is at risk for zinc deficiency. Did you know that zinc
deficiency is found in both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease? Did you know that zinc is actually a natural
antidepressant? Zinc deficiency occurs in liver cirrhosis and other liver diseases. Adequate zinc levels are required
for the regulation of blood pressure. Even a mild zinc deficiency during pregnancy can increase maternal morbidity,
prolong gestation, cause inefficient labor, bleeding, and increased risk to the fetus. Some classic symptoms of zinc
deficiency are depression, lack of sense of smell, reduced immunity, delayed wound healing, slow hair growth,
infertility and white flecks under the nail beds. NEVER take zinc oxide orally.
Daily HealthTrivia: Shaking up the trivia: The good news is that a shake at a fast food restaurant provides
about 400 mg of calcium. The bad news: it also supplies up to 600 calories along with at least 9 grams of fat!
