Processed Food and Your Health

I have a quiz on my site to check on certain things that might stop someone from restoring health to their nerves.   One question is do they eat processed foods.

Actually, so many people say they don’t eat processed foods, that I begin to wonder if they know what that means.   However, what I want to communicate is that it is so important to read labels when buying food.  No, eggs, vegetables and meat are probably okay – well unless they come packages and then I would still check the labels.

Here is an article on checking labels…

You Have to Check the Labels to Find Healthy Foods

Skin Relief? Discover the Underlying Cause of Skin Problems

If you are like most people with a problem skin condition, you’ve spent countless hours researching solutions.  You’ve probably tried many different products with the hope of finding something that would improve your skin. Any non-optimum skin condition can cause embarrassment and affect self-esteem and quality of life.

What most people don’t know about the underlying cause of skin problems

Inflammation is at the core of most health issues. Unresolved, chronic inflammation is a feature of a wide range of chronic health conditions, including skin conditions.

Acute inflammation is a necessary, protective response of the body tissues to adverse stimuli, like irritants, or damaged cells due to injury. Acute inflammation lessens when the stimulus is removed. In contrast, chronic inflammation is an ongoing response to stimuli that doesn’t end and the longer it continues the more it causes cellular degeneration and damage.

In fact, chronic inflammation is recognized as one of the four primary factors that affect health and cause degeneration in the body.

What effect does chronic inflammation have on the body?

Chronic inflammation can affect the following:

  • Skin health and inflammatory skin conditions
  • Immune system health
  • Cardiovascular health – many heart attacks are caused by inflammation around the heart, and high blood pressure can be caused by inflammation of the blood vessels.

Dr. Robert Crea stated, “Tackling inflammation will be at the core of medicine for the next 20 years. Cellular inflammation, and trying to control it, is going to be at the core of medicine over the next 20 years and people want to manage it with natural compounds.”

What can you do about chronic inflammation?

The good news is you can do something about chronic inflammation. Eating more plant-based whole foods will help. In addition, taking a supplement designed to have a powerful, positive impact on chronic inflammation will provide extra anti-inflammatory support.

Dr. Robert Weiss says, “Plant-based whole foods are the most powerful disease modifying tools available to practitioners – more powerful than any drugs or surgeries.”

Treating skin conditions from the inside

If you have an unresolving skin issue it is very likely you have chronic inflammation in your body.

Most people try to tackle their skin condition with a topical solution, but creams, gels or lotions don’t always deliver the desired result.

Skin conditions need to be addressed from inside the body as that’s where the chronic inflammation is happening.

Introducing Inflammation Relief – the supplement that comes from the latest research into the benefits of olive oil and raises the standard of the bioavailable active ingredient

Inflammation Relief  is a result of the latest research conducted in the field of olive polyphenols.

Polyphenols are natural bioactive compounds, naturally present in fruit, vegetables and other plants, which are known for their anti-inflammatory capacity. Olive oil is rich in polyphenols giving it anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties.

Inflammation Relief is a totally natural proprietary formula of olive polyphenols extracted from the pulp of fresh, organically grown olives (Olea Europaea.)

Each capsule of Inflammation Relief delivers double the concentration of olive polyphenols and sets a new high bar for a dietary supplement due to its bioavailable antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. One capsule contains as much antioxidant polyphenols as 8 to 12 ounces of extra virgin olive oil without all the calories.

There are numerous studies supporting the benefits of olive oil and olive polyphenols. These can be found on PubMed.gov

The Time to Act is Now!

Inflammation Relief  can improve skin conditions, whether you are suffering from itchy skin, dry skin, flaky skin, scaly skin, spots, bumps, or one of many other skin problems.

Every cell has a turnover rate. Skin cells are replaced every 30 to 40 days, depending on your age. If you start doing things now to impact the health of your skin cells, the new version of these cells will be better than the last.

New Scientific Study… what does it mean?

Every other day it seems, there is a new study that is published which states that something is good for you or bad for you. It could be a study about food, or supplements, or how easy it is for you to get some dreaded disease. And there are many times that the study contradicts an earlier one.  And the next study contradicts that one. Do we believe them?

You need to know that studies are paid for by tax dollars and by companies that have a vested interest in the study. They are looking to prove that you should take a certain drug, or prescription vitamin, or that you should be wary of a specific way of living.

Vested interest means that they may be out to prove their hypothesis so they can sell you a drug or prevent you from using the competitor’s product.

Then there is the overwhelming problem, that one study doesn’t prove a thing. There are so many variables, that you can’t possible expect that a 100-300 person study (people who have been picked for the study) to show something conclusively.

So next time you decide you should not take something due to the “latest” study. Read up what it really is. Find out the science behind the nutritionally sound concept of nutrition or what your body needs to function.

Or investigate the actual studies and what other studies have been done – you can find them on PubMed.com

As new study claimed that low carbs will shorten your life,  here is a educational video by Dr. Berg giving you information about this latest study on Carbs

Dental Work & Surgery Nerve Problems?

It is common for people to experience different nerve damage symptoms after dental work. This is especially true of dental surgery and implants.

During the procedure, the nerve can be damaged. Yes, it most probably will get better in a few months if it isn’t extensive damage.

But are you willing to put up with numbness, and pain, tingling, etc. for 6 months? Why not give your body a head start in restoring your nerve health.

B1 Deficiency, it mimics so many diseases

I have known B1 (thiamine) to be such an important vitamin.  It is so involved with your health.

But then I found an educational video by Dr. Eric Berg, D.C. about what a deficiency of B1 will do.   It is very informative.

I think with so many people depleting B1 by using caffeine, sugar, medical drugs, processed foods etc. etc.  that this is important to know.   I can affect the conditions such as  lack of tears, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, and even memory problems.   But, etc. etc. etc.

Here is the video:

Do Drugs Save Lives?

I’ve heard people say this.  It really doesn’t seem to be a thought out comment but one which “everybody knows”.  I will sometimes hear it when I recommend natural medicine or remedy.

My question will be  – Why would you take a petrochemical pharmaceutical instead of natural medicine?  The answer – Because drugs save lives?

Well, when a person has neglected their health to the point where they are about to succumb to a bad infection due to a compromised immune system or succumb to heart disease, or any other ailment, it will save their life – well it will extend their life.   But, that is the point at which you need to start building health. And actually building health is a good idea to do before you need to have your life saved by taking drugs.

But my question is why you would take a drug when there are so many alternatives that are safe and work just as well.  Why are people so afraid for their health that they would get a “flu shot” or take a “mold” based product (better known as penicillin)?  What is the matter with their immune system?  Yes, the flu can be very detrimental to someone with a  compromised immune system. But what happened that their immune system became compromised.

The missing step is maintaining health, and building health if it is compromised.

I haven’t known many medical doctors who will give you any advice on being healthy other than to tell you to exercise and to eat a healthy diet.  A medical doctor works to help you maintain your disease once you have one, so it doesn’t get any worse.  They are not in the business of building health.

So, maybe the right approach is building health and not eating what has been referred to as S.A.D. – the Standard American Diet.

Find out what your body needs to be healthy and make sure that you get all the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the foods that you eat. Or supplement if you can not get enough.   Eat for your health, not for your taste buds.

Aging and Staying Active

I’ve heard of yoga as a tool for aging. But then I read this article that was written for caregivers, but which can be used by anyone to be more active and mobile. It is full of really good information so I put it on the MCVitamins page on Aging.
