Issue 11.30.18 Laxatives - A Health-DEPLETING Trend - Healthy Natural Alternatives
Unfortunately, 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.

Issue 11.16.18 Salt Doesn't Raise Blood Pressure in Most
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!
- 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

Issue 11.02.18 Why Your Nose Runs When Exposed to Cold Air...
Why Your Nose Runs When Exposed to Cold Air…It happens to almost all of us – we go out into the dry, cold winter air and our nose starts to run. It’s known as “skier nose.” In medical terms it’s known as “cold-induced rhinitis” or “skier nose”.
One study found it affects 96% of us – particularly those with asthma, eczema and hay fever seem to experience it more.
It's the job of your nose to make the air you breathe in warm and wet so that when it gets to your lungs it does not irritate the cells. The cold, dry air also stimulates cells of your immune system (called "mast cells") in your nose. This symptom shows the nose is very effective at making sure the air we breathe becomes warm and wet before it reaches the lungs.

Issue 10.19.18 Foods Your BRAIN and HEART NEED...
Many factors affect your brain and heart health. Optimal brain health and memory can be affected by lack of sleep or a number of other reasons including genetics, level of physical activity, and lifestyle and environmental factors. Studies are now showing how nutrition is playing a key role in brain health. As the years’ progress, cell damage in the brain can occur due to oxygen molecules called free-radicals. For those affected, it can lead to memory loss and slower cognitive processing times leading to a diagnosis of disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Dementia.
Much like specific foods support heart health, brain function also relies on optimal blood flow to the brain, therefore, both need the same nutrients. Click Link Foods Your Brain & Heart NEED to read the full article.
Issue 10.5.18 GOUT: Causes - Symptoms - Natural Solutions
FACT: Gout plagues more and more people daily – it’s a type of arthritis which leads to joint inflammation. It can cause slight swelling and stiffness or, in some cases, leads to severe pain and intense swelling that develops and manifests in just a few hours. The major reason for the occurrence of gout is a uric acid overload, which causes hard crystals to form in your joints.
The uric acid formed is through a process called decomposing prunes – chemicals that our bodies naturally process and can be found in different varieties of foods. If a person’s diet contains a high number of purines it will then raise the amount of uric levels in the body and can develop gout.
Therefore, if you have gout and you want to improve or be proactive you MUST lower the level of uric acid inside your body. The best way to start is to make some changes in your lifestyle and diet as briefly outlined in this report. CLICK this LINK to read the full article.
