Diabetes – The Disease That Double Your Age Fast

Product_Bundle

I just ran across an interesting statistic from the University of Michigan. It turns out that more than 25 million Americans could be aging twice as fast as the rest of us.

Could you be one of the statistics?

Well, if you suffer from diabetes, it’s quite possible. Diabetes is a tough disease that can damage the kidneys, lead to numbness in the extremities, and boost the odds of heart disease. [Read more...]

Turmeric – a powerful antioxidant with surprising health benefits

You may have already known from my past blogs that cinnamon is one of the most powerful antioxidants that you may have been overlooking in this world where acai, blueberries, and red wine are the only antioxidant sources that get major press.

However, have you ever eaten curry? That yellow color in curry is attributed to a spice called Turmeric, and it is one of the most powerful antioxidants you can consume with amazing health benefits.
Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a dye, as a spice for dishes, and also in traditional Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Turmeric has some of the world’s most powerful fat-burning and healing qualities of any food or spice. It is a potent anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial substance. [Read more...]

How to Reverse your Age as much as 20 Years

The New England Journal of Medicine published the results of this age-reversing bombshell 22 years ago. But there were no front-page headlines in The New York Times. There was no mention from Tom Brokaw on NBC’s Nightly News.

But a few years later, dozens of new studies appeared. And a glowing track record made this new therapy a must-have for athletes and movie stars desperate for a dip in the “fountain of youth.”
And just when it looked like the discovery would go “mainstream,” the FDA restricted access.

This fountain of youth compound is actually already inside your own body. Researchers were able to pinpoint it and copy it. Then they created a biologically identical substance so a body could get even more of it. Both require a doctor’s prescription and injections. But increasing the flow of the fountain produced jaw-dropping results. [Read more...]

Why Should I Care About Strokes?

By SmilesTrust

Exercise benefits such as preventing obesity and diabetes, reducing stress, and lowering your blood pressure are among the most obvious. Maintaining a fitness regimen can also go a long way toward warding off a stroke, as all of these factors also affect your stroke risk.

A stroke involves either a rupture of an artery that feeds your brain (hemorrhagic stroke), or an obstruction of blood flow (ischemic stroke), with the ischemic type representing 75 percent of all strokes. [Read more...]

What is Pre-Diabetes?

Product_Bundle

By SmilesTrust

The most common form of diabetes, Type 2 diabetes may account for up to 90- to 95-percent of all diagnosed cases. Family history, aging, obesity, ethnicity, and a previous history of gestational diabetes are the biggest risk factors. Most foods we consume are broken down into glucose (or sugar), which the body converts into fuel. After food is digested, glucose is passed into the bloodstream, where cells use it for energy and growth. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, is needed for the glucose to get into the cells. When someone is diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, a person becomes insulin resistant. The pancreas still produces an ample amount of insulin, but the body is unable to use it effectively. Most people with this type of diabetes take oral medications, insulin injections, or both to regulate their blood glucose levels. [Read more...]

Heart Disease and Diabetes

By SmilesTrust

Heart disease is common in people with diabetes. Data from the National Diabetes Fact Sheet show that in 2004 heart disease was noted on 68% of diabetes-related death certificates in people 65 and older. Stroke was noted on 16% of the diabetes-related death certificates in people 65 and older. In general, the risks of heart disease death and stroke is 2-4 times higher in people with diabetes.

While all people with diabetes have an increased chance of developing heart disease, the condition is more common in those with type 2 diabetes.

Is it possible for someone with diabetes to eat sweets? The answer is “yes.” Artificial sweeteners for diabetes patients is one strategy you can use. But which artificial sweeteners are OK? How should you use them? [Read more...]

Medical Symptoms You Must Not Ignore

By SmilesTrust

“Your body flashes signals — symptoms and signs — that warn you of potential problems,” Fortunately, many symptoms turn out not to be serious. For example, the majority of headaches stem from stress, eyestrain, lack of sleep, dehydration, caffeine withdrawal, and other mundane causes.
But a sudden, agonizing “thunderclap” headache — the worst of your life — could mean bleeding in the brain. Being able to recognize this serious symptom and calling 911 may save your life.
Here are six important flashing signals. [Read more...]

How to Say No to Deadly Drugs—and Demand the Safe,
Natural Alternatives Instead
Reposted by SmilesTrust

The doctor enters the room, a serious look on her face. “You have diabetes,” she says. As soon as she utters the D-word, your stomach drops and your heart rate skyrockets. She presses several prescriptions into your hands, explaining how one pill will bring down your blood pressure… another will decrease cholesterol… and another will control blood sugar. You leave the room in a daze, burdened with an extensive drug regime that your doctor just assured you would give you the best shot at treating an incurable disease. [Read more...]

One of the largest and longest studies of mammography to date involving over 90,000 women followed for 25 years, found that mammograms have absolutely NO impact on breast cancer.
Over the course of the study, the death rate from breast cancer was virtually identical between those who received an annual mammogram and those who did not.

Beware of the new and improve type of mammogram called 3D Tomosynthesis as it exposes you to even HIGHER doses of radiation than a standard mammography.

Study Proves Cola Is Cancer In A Can

So I was flipping through one of my favorite magazines this Christmas, and there it was — a full-page ad of ol’ Saint Nick downing a bottle of a popular cola. (I’m betting you can guess which one.)
And that’s when I knew I had to tell the world’s children that Christmas would be canceled next year. You see, I’m not sure a tumor-riddled Santa is going to be up for making the rounds.

In the latest bit of bad news for that sugar-laden, toxic sludge Midwesterners call “pop,” a study by Consumer Reports has found that some of the most popular sodas on the market today are practically CRAWLING with a cancer-causing chemical. [Read more...]

Health Benefits Of Walking Barefoot

barefoot

Walking barefoot, also known as “earthing,” has gone from being a kooky counter-culture trend, to a scientifically-researched practice with a number of remarkable health advantages, such as increasing antioxidants, reducing inflammation, and improving sleep.

Earthing means walking barefoot on soil, grass or sand (meaning: any natural surface). So we’ll have to get off the sidewalk. Early studies are showing that the health benefits come from the relationship between our bodies and the electrons in the earth. The planet has its own natural charge, and we seem to do better when we’re in direct contact with it. [Read more...]

How To Contribute To Heart Failure By Hanging Out On The Couch

The more we learn about sitting, the more perilous it seems to be.

Flabby muscles, fuzzy thinking and all manner of cardiovascular disease can get started or get worse when we’re hanging out on the couch, stuck in traffic or just parked in a chair for too long.
Now there’s evidence that — when your heart becomes too weak to pump enough blood through your arteries — can be brought on by a sedentary lifestyle and also, more generally, a lack of physical activity.
Researchers at enrolled more than 80,000 men aged 45 and older about a decade ago in a study to see how the time they spent sitting and engaging in physical activity affected the odds they would develop heart failure. [Read more...]

How To Rewire Baby’s Brain With Obesity During Pregnancy

Excessive pregnancy weight gain is associated with obesity in the offspring, but this relationship may be confounded by genetic and other shared influences. We aimed to examine the association of pregnancy weight gain with body mass index (BMI) in the offspring, using a within-family design to minimize confounding.
High pregnancy weight gain is associated with increased body weight of the offspring in childhood, and this effect is only partially mediated through higher birth weight. Translation of these findings to public health obesity prevention requires additional study. [Read more...]

10 Foods That keep Arteries Clean

organicfruits

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are gripping the world like wild fire. Nutritionists believe that they are ‘The Plague’ of the 21st century. One of the key risks for developing CVD is clogged arteries. This is not an overnight occurrence, but a series of wrong choices in food and lifestyle.

Your arteries are blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients from your heart to the rest of your body. They go to your brain as well as to the tips of your toes. Healthy arteries are flexible, strong, elastic and clear of any deposits — blood flows through them easily. But as you age, deposits of fatty substances, cholesterol, cellular waste products and calcium are formed on the inner walls of the arteries. This arterial plaque can reduce blood flow or, in some instances, block it altogether. [Read more...]

Cancer-in-a-Can? The Horrific True Story Of How Pringles Are Made

So if they’re not made of potatoes, what are they exactly? [Read more...]

Turmeric Extract A Blockbuster Drug For Osteoarthritis & Rheumatoid Arthritis

Millions take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) daily for arthritis and related inflammatory conditions, but are completely unaware that far safer, and at least as effective, natural alternatives already exist — and are as easily accessible and inexpensive as the spices found in your kitchen cupboard.

Human research on the health benefits of turmeric is sparse, mainly due to the lack of capital available to fund expensive clinical trials.Despite many decades of investigation as a lead drug compound, and the availability of thousands of preclinical studies indicating turmeric’s therapeutic value, few yet realize that this common kitchen spice may provide a suitable drug alternative for common health conditions.

Facts On Psoriatic Arthritis

About 2.5% of the Caucasian population has the chronic skin condition called psoriasis, while fewer people of African descent have psoriasis. 10% to 30% of Canadians with psoriasis will also suffer from inflammation, pain, or disability in the joints. When this is the case, they have a condition called psoriatic arthritis (PsA), a joint disease related to psoriasis.

Psoriatic arthritis typically appears when people are between the ages of 20 and 50, and it is equally common in men and women, and can occur at any age. Most people with psoriatic arthritis develop joint problems some months or years after the first skin symptoms appeared. But in about 15% of the cases, the arthritis appears before the psoriasis. Over 80% of psoriasis sufferers notice changes in the toenails or fingernails. [Read more...]

Facts On Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic condition that causes the lining of your joints or other body areas to become inflamed. As it progresses, it further damages the tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bone in your joints. It may also damage other areas of the body, including the lungs or blood vessels.
About 1% of the population has RA, with women about 3 times more likely than men to get it. Although it can occur at all ages, people most often develop RA between the ages of 25 and 50 years. [Read more...]

Facts on Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disease that causes the cartilage to break down and bone to overgrow or form cysts. Cartilage is a smooth, shiny material that lines the joints – allowing them to glide easily as you move. It is a type of resilient connective tissue that covers and protects the ends of bones in joints. Although OA can affect any joint in the body, it most frequently affects the hips, knees, hands, feet, and spine.

Arthritis is among the leading causes of disability in Canada. OA is the most common form of arthritis. It affects 1 out of every 10 people in this country. Statistics show that men and women are affected in equal numbers. OA usually occurs after the age of 45, but it can occur earlier in life, and even be seen in the spines of teenagers. After menopause, women tend to get more severe and complicated problems. [Read more...]

Facts on Gout

Gout is a type of arthritis that is characterized by sudden, severe attacks of joint pain with redness, warmth, and swelling in the affected area. It usually attacks only one joint at a time. It most often strikes the joint of the big toe, where it’s also known as podagra, but other toes can also be involved.
Gout is typically a condition that occurs in middle age, is ten times more common in men than in women, is unusual in people under the age of 30, and is rarely seen in women before menopause. A first gout attack most commonly occurs around age 47. It’s most common in countries with high standards of living, mainly because diet plays a big part in this condition. It affects about 1% of the population. [Read more...]

Facts on Arthritis

Arthritis is a chronic disorder that affects 1 in 7 people, half of whom are between the ages of 30 to 50 years old. It is one of the major reasons people see their doctor.
The word arthritis is derived from the Greek words arthron for “joint” and itis for “inflammation.” Today, the term is used for hundreds of different varieties of joint problems that have specific symptoms, such as pain, swelling, and stiffness. Arthritis means a change inside a joint. Bursitis and tendonitis by themselves are not arthritis because they affect tissues around the joints. [Read more...]

Once stimulated, the vagus activates a chemical compound called acetylcholine–a neurotransmitter that reduces inflammation and sends messages from your brain throughout your body. [Read more...]
