Energy buddies for men

Every man desires to maintain youthful strength and vitality. Our society is fast-paced and sometimes that is a challenge. Perhaps you reach for energy drinks to keep going during long hours at work or play. Maybe you snack on processed and convenience foods that satisfy cravings but over time may lead to unwanted health challenges. Then you work out (or do chores at home) and “feel” it afterward.

It would be wonderful if everything your put in your body would add strength and energy, but that requires planning and dedication.

What if there were life-giving snacks and energy drinks that offered healthy solutions to these needs?

Health at what price?

Recently my colleague Dr. LeAnne Deardeuff mentioned how much she loves Frankincense and what it has done to improve her life and health. She mentioned how frankincense helped her get rid of headaches. She also said, “I vita-flexed it on my pituitary points on my feet and head. I rubbed it in the roof of my mouth.  I began to learn that it focused my fuzzy brain and made me more alert and able to work better. Energy was soon restored. I felt that I might just have some “brilliancy” in that head of mine. Health was being restored.”

She even says she mixed a few drops in fresh raw cream and drank it — the emulsified fat quickly delivered the precious essential oil to every cell of her body. What a great idea!

For me, when I was having great difficulty with asthma and chronic bronchitis, inhaling Frankincense immediately eased the spasms in my lungs. In fact, the first time I did that, my lungs sent a message to my brain that said, “THANK YOU!”

Authentic, pure, therapeutic grade Frankincense doesn’t come cheap. It is easy to feel like it is too expensive to use.  But let me toss out another thought from Dr. LeAnne: “Now with the type of healing I am doing with Frankincense it isn’t expensive to me any more. It is vital. My health is worth so much more then letting that precious oil sit on the shelf being seen but not touched. It is meant to be used.”

I couldn’t say it better. What is your health worth to you?

Magnesium—The Missing Link to Better Health

Excerpts from a recent article by Dr. Mercola

  • An estimated 80 percent of Americans are deficient in magnesium. The health consequences of deficiency can be quite significant, and can be aggravated by many, if not most, drug treatments
  • Magnesium performs a wide array of biological functions, including activating muscles and nerves and creating energy in your body by attaching adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
  • Magnesium is very important for heart health. Excessive amounts of calcium without the counterbalance of magnesium can lead to a heart attacks, strokes, and sudden death
  • An ideal ratio between calcium and magnesium is thought to be 1:1. The recommended daily dose is around 700 milligrams of each
  • Anytime you’re taking any of the following: magnesium, calcium, vitamin D3, or vitamin K2, you need to take all the others into consideration as well, as these nutrients work synergistically with one another
  • Fluoride effectively drains your body of magnesium

Diet Soda

Why Diet Soda Could Be Your “Un-healthy” Label

By the National Wellness Institute, April 2012

While evidence is clear that sugary sodas are causing waistlines to increase in addition to other health issues, what do we really know about diet sodas? Are they good or bad for you? The jury is still out, but a new study sheds light on the impact that zero-calorie drinks may have. Previous studies have linked diet soda consumption as a cause of cardiovascular disease. However, others have suggested such drinks may be a viable tactic for people who are trying to lose or control their weight. The past research generally focused on individuals’ consumption patterns or their overall dietary habits, but failed to distinguish how those two aspects interact to affect people’s health.

To address this problem, a new study from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill examined not only people’s beverage consumption patterns but also the diets of those who consume diet and sugar-sweetened beverages. Researchers studied data collected over 20 years from more than 4,000 young adults who participated in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study. In terms of eating habits, participants fell into two groups: people who ate what researchers dubbed a “prudent” diet (one with more fruit, fish, whole grains, nuts, and milk) and individuals who consumed a “western” diet (which had higher amounts of fast food, meat and poultry, pizza, and snacks. The findings appear in the April issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The results? Similar to previous studies, the new analysis found that people who consume diet beverages tend to be less healthy than people who do not consume them. People who were healthiest tended to be those who ate a prudent diet and did not consume diet beverages. They had a lower risk of high waist circumference, high triglyceride levels and metabolic syndrome (22 percent, 28 percent, and 36 percent lower, respectively, than people who ate a western diet and did not drink diet beverages. But the second healthiest group was individuals with a prudent diet who also consumed diet beverages. In contrast, individuals who consumed the western diet had increased risk of heart disease, regardless of whether or not they drank diet beverages. The UNC researchers found that many dietary factors contributed to a person’s overall health. Without taking diet beverage consumption into account, people who ate the prudent diet had significantly better cholesterol and triglyceride profiles and significantly lower risks of hypertension and metabolic syndrome than those who ate the western diet.

The bottom line: Drinking diet soda is not a substitute for a balanced, healthy diet. To be truly healthy, focus on the food first, add water, and if you must, drink diet soda in moderation.
