ANXIETY: Tools to Know About

NATURAL STRATEGIES TO MINIMIZE ANXIETY & STRESS
Nearly 7 million individuals suffer from anxiety, and sometimes to extremes that are sadly out of proportion to what the actual event or situation is.  Many sit and anticipate disaster, or worry incessantly about family, work, health or money. The physical and emotional toll can be crippling.
Symptoms can range from mild, such as feeling tense, to actually having symptoms similar to a heart attack. Many suffer from ulcers, diarrhea and/or constipation as a result. Anxiety can and will take a physical toll on the body. It is very common to fall ill following a stressful time. A mild version of this would be a cold or flu the week after an exhausting or stressful event. A more serious scenario would be a cancer diagnosis that shows its ugly face one to two years following a traumatic life event, such as the loss of a loved one or end of a relationship.  
Once medical conditions such as hyperthyroidism, adrenal fatigue, and hormone imbalance a…

SICK AGAIN?

SICK AGAIN? Get off the hamster wheel!    Things to prevent and have on hand should illness strike.

I am constantly being bombarded with, "I'm sick again and I can't seem to shake it." or "This cough will not go away" or "Every time I fly, I get sick."
"My kids bring home everything."  "I've taken a Z-pack and it's not working."

It's time to get off the hamster wheel once and for all.  In order to do this, you must be prepared and even be minimally proactive as the "sick season" begins.  It is not too late as cold and flu season will likely go through April.

Remember that you can log into this information anytime you want to refresh your memory or even order the supplements.  Even if I have not seen you in  a while, I really want you to stay healthy. 

MY FIRST QUESTION IS, "HOW MUCH VITAMIN D3 ARE YOU TAKING?".  If you have let this most important supplement slip from your daily routine, not only are…

Don't forget the D3!!!

Order NOW!


I am being bombarded with journal articles and research that undeniably state the role of Vitamin D in cancer prevention.  I have lectured and written on this topic before, especially when it comes to supporting your immune system, but I will now continue to further ingrain this topic into your head.  It may just save your life. 

Vitamin D3 supplementation is probably one of the most important things you can do to protect your body from disease.   Its effects on genes are so powerful that a deficiency in Vitamin D over an extended period of time has been associated with 22 types of cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and autoimmune diseases including multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, Rheumatoid arthritis, and a wealth of other modern chronic diseases.  What’s most important is its powerful effect on the immune system. Adequate levels of Vitamin D in the body have been shown to increase the body's natural supply of what are called "Antimicrobial …

Hospitals Fail When it comes to Foods that Heal

I have been employed by various hospitals over the years so what I am about to say is not directed toward any specific health care facility or person, it is a generalization and only meant to make you think. If you are a patient in a hospital we can conclude a few possibilities. You are sick, having surgery or mending from an accident.
You have been placed in that facility to expedite the healing process, manage pain and achieve a higher level of wellness or at least that is what we are hoping for. By now I hope most people have made the connection between what you eat and your state of health. Your health, or lack of it, is largely determined by what you place in that mouth of yours. A diet full of raw fruits, vegetables, fish, beans, meats and whole grains is unlikely to yield candidate for diabetes, cancer or heart disease. A diet full  of breads, cold cuts, mac and cheese, pizza, soda, chicken wings and subs is a fast track to the…
