NIGHT TIME LIGHT EXPOSURE - NOT a Bright Idea - Part 1 of 2

We live in a very light polluted world, in comparison to that of our very recent ancestors. Estimates now indicate that close to 99% of both Americans and Europeans are exposed to “light pollution.” Not only are we excessively exposed to light in modern times, but the type of light accounting for this exposure is changing rapidly. As we move away from incandescent lights in favor of light emitting diode (LED) technology, we are seeing an ever-increasing exposure to a particular part of the light spectrum – blue light – associated with some worrisome health-depleting effects in humans...Click the link below:

Issue 12.28.18 Could Your FATIGUE & INFLAMMATION be a Deficiency of Magnesium?

MagnesiumFunctionsGraphic-1024x620 (1)In a 2014 study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers concluded that the health-enhancing effect of magnesium intake wherever chronic diseases are present, may be, at least in part, explained by inhibiting the inflammatory responses. They suggest that in the five studies they witnessed the potential benefit of magnesium supplementation, especially as measured in the CRP (C-Reactive Protein) test, because of magnesium's unique ability to inhibit inflammation.

We know that inflammation is at the root of plaque build-up in atherosclerosis and supplementation with magnesium may be the "key" ingredient missing in those developing the disease.

Furthering on the European study, another study of 3700 post-menopausal women concluded that magnesium does have extraordinary anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, the researchers noted that arterial wall inflammation was minimized in those who significantly increased magnesium intake. You may be asking how this helps arterial wall plaque. The answer: Magnesium makes it more difficult for plaque to settle on the arterial walls. Remember, it’s the plaque that causes narrowing of the arteries and ultimately coronary artery disease and other heart diseases. Magnesium helps improve circulation and that alone prevents or minimizes plaque formation AND, without drugs. CLICK HERE to read the entire article.

HealthThruEd_Both Locations   Holiday Health Risks – “Over-consumption Syndrome”

by Gloria Gilbѐre, CDP, DA Hom, ND, PhD, DSC, EcoErgonomist, Wholistic Rejuvenist, HTMA Practitioner

Personal Note from Dr. Gloria

This article was previously published; however, I’ve had many request to re-publish…here it goes.

As an AFTERWORD to the original article, think about this; we forget the amount of stress we put on ourselves, and allow others to place upon us, particularly for the holidays. Having reached my 71st year and determined that this is “The beginning of the best part of the rest of my life” allow me to share some “food for thought” that I’ve personally experienced and learned from that has finally brought me the peace in my life that always escaped me. It’s a time to give thanks for so many things, most of all, that you have come to the point in your life where “you can afford anything except being around negative people – negativity is a dangerous contagious disease.” I am thankful to all my loyal patients and followers and pray each of you will reach the same peace and fulfillment I have by taking back your own personal power. At times, we agree to spend time with those who take more energy than they give, all without thinking of what those compromises mean to our Wholistic health – whether it be your parents, in-laws, neighbors, friends, coworkers, siblings or even your children. My gift to you this holiday season is to share the favorite quotes I live by and hope they shine the light of health, peace and inspiration in your life as they have mine.  CLICK HERE to read the entire article.

 

Issue 11.30.18 Laxatives - A Health-DEPLETING Trend - Healthy Natural Alternatives

Causes-of-Constipation-1Unfortunately, our modern fast-paced lifestyles and diet are causing stresses within our body, including constipation and the habitual use of laxatives that deal with symptoms, not the underlying causes. This time of year, with all the extra stresses of holidays, constipation has become an even larger health issue.

Constipation is a digestive health syndrome that occurs due to a decrease in the frequency of bowel movements. Mainly characterized by incomplete excretion of the bowel or passage of hard and dry feces, constipation can be a contributing factor to onset of several health problems. Prolonged retention of food in the intestines can cause toxin production in the body that then can easily re-circulate throughout the body.

Issue 11.16.18 Salt Doesn't Raise Blood Pressure in Most

Download (1)Contrary to what consumers and patients have been told by their doctors that…salt intake directly causes high blood pressure...the TRUTH will shock you!

FACTS…

  • Salt does NOT raise your blood pressure. In fact, contrary to popular belief, you need salt in your diet.
  • Your cells depend on sodium for vital energy, it’s a precious mineral.
  • Without it, your blood vessels constrict and tighten up...causing your pressure to rise

SCIENTISTS SPEAK OUT…

Is Salt linked to high blood pressure?

  • Not necessarily. Recently a meta-analysis of seven studies involving a total of 6,250 subjects in the American Journal of Hypertension found no strong evidence that cutting salt intake reduces the risk for heart attacks, strokes or death in people with normal or high blood pressure. NOTE: Yes, there are certain individuals who are extremely sensitive to salt or have kidney disorders that warrant reduction of sodium in their diet
