Get Better Faster, Stay Better Longer
Good Afternoon Everybody,
November is Alzheimer's and Diabetes awareness month. Both have increased in this country over the past 10-15 years at an alarming rate.
For Alzheimer's there is not solid evidence if the extra aluminum in the brain of those patients is the cause or effect of the disease but nevertheless many folks who have a family history or just being preventative are avoiding it. Unfortunately it is in MANY common household items like:
- Foods such as baking powder, self rising flour, salt, baby formula, coffee creamers, baked goods and processed foods, coloring and caking agents
- Drugs, such as antacids, analgesics, anti-diarrheals, and others; additives such as magnesium stearate
- Vaccines—Hepatitis A and B, Hib, DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis), pneumococcal vaccine, Gardasil (HPV), and others
- Cosmetics and personal care products such as antiperspirants, deodorants (including salt crystals, made of alum), lotions, sunscreens, and shampoos
- Aluminum products, including foil, cans, juice pouches, tins, and water bottles
There is a very detailed article HERE from mercola.com for those who want to get more detailed information and some hints on how to detoxify.
I started carrying Brain Boost II recently for a series of folks who had Lyme's disease permeate the brain but it is designed more for dealing Alzheimer's and other cognitive function diseases / imbalances and the patients are enjoying the effects. It is meant to be a corrective protocol with a 3-6 month treatment cycle depending on how bad the problem is. There are a series of other supplements that can be combined with it depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask, I will help to the best of my ability or ask the gurus and get back to you ASAP.
- Brain Boost is 10% off through November in observation.
Diabetes is practically an epidemic with 1 in 3 people being diabetic, hypoglycemic, Insulin resistant or another related condition in a clinical or sub clinical level. Honestly the sedentary lifestyle is killing America. We need to implement more Active programs for school and work places plus be more aware of the consumption of highly processed foods. The Glycemic index has been around for a very long time and has gained popularity over the years in uses for diets like "The South Beach Diet" as keeping your numbers low tells you body to burn stores instead of making more stores. Dr. Mendosa has an extensive list HERE where you can look up foods to see what swaps can benefit your insulin levels. There is enough information through this site one could get lost for days trying to learn it. Insulin imbalance is also very inflammatory which will slow to stop your body from healing correctly.
- Pro Oranges is a powder to mix with water, almond, milk, protein, etc. that gives a huge boost of energy and helps to balance sugar levels. Also at 10% off through November.
As the days get shorter we do need to keep our Vit D3 up to help our immune systems, mood, and sleep balance. 5,000 IU/day through Fall, Winter, and Spring makes a world of difference. We just got the 120 capsule bottles (4 month supply) in for $21 instead of the 2 month (60 caps) for $15. Also 10% off through November.
PARKING - Many folks have questioned or asked about parking availability. We do pay the church to share the parking lot owned by them so anywhere in the lot from our building over to behind the church is fair game. We are working on getting the signs to reflect the deal we have with them but for now are assured that none of our patrons will have any problems.
