The Smoke is Gone!

We are loving our New Sky Atmosphere Air Purifier.

The recent wild fire threatened our home, forced a week long mandatory evacuation and left lots of ash and toxic material in our outside environment.  But we are back safe and thankful to the great fire fighters that saved our community.  One of our best decisions was the purchase of our new air purifier.

We cannot control the outside air, but inside our home the smoke smell has been eliminated and we are breathing healthy air.

Some pleasant surprises with this new unit:

Immunity Is The Current Focus

Take Your Supplements as Directed

We all have gaps in  our nutrition and many of you have made the good decision to purchase supplements to fill those gaps.  However, they need to be taken daily as directed to be effective.  Too often a good decision is made to purchase them, but, if they are put in a drawer or cabinet and taken occasionally as an after though your not getting the desired result.  Like everything else, you need to create a habit of taking them daily.  I recommend they be part of a meal.

The Secret Weapon in Fruits & Vegetables

Immunity Comes From Nature

Health starts in the soil, where seeds germinate and a plant begins to grow and draw nutrients until it reaches maturity.  The secret weapon these plants have is the phytonutrients they contain to fight off insects and disease.  That defense mechanism is what makes your daily consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables so important.  Your immune system needs these phytonutrients to fight off free radicals that are attacking your cells daily.

Different plants carry their own unique phytonutrients.

Your Immune system needs Your Support

Is Your Immune System Getting the Support it Needs?

There is not anything available from the medical community to combat this new virus that is attacking the entire world population.  All they can do is supportive treatment, your immune system has to fight this battle alone.

Are You doing everything you can to support your immune system?

Some recommendations:

  • Start with healthy nutrition & lifestyle choices (eat your veggies, don't smoke!)
  • Take your supplements as recommended
  • Make sure your following all the sanitation recommendations 

The Power of Food First

Focus On Food First

As you work toward achieving optimal health, make sure you have a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet.  Then choose the right supplements that can help fill the gaps between the fruits and vegetables you actually eat and what your body really needs.

One thing I love about the Nutrilite product line is that they offer different options for different needs and expectations.  But most of all, they are plant based and come for REAL FOOD concentrates.  So you get the vitamins and minerals your looking for, plus the phytonutrients from real food that make them more effective.

The Science of Fighting Free Radicals

What's Your Source of Antioxidants to Fight Free Radicals?

The Wild Fires Are Overloading Your Body With Free Radicals

Phytonutrients, the organic compounds found in fruits and vegetables,are good for you. Science has been telling us that for years.

That's because they act as antioxidants, and antioxidants help your body fight excess free radicals-the cell damaging substances generated by internal systems in our bodies and caused by many of life's everyday activities: poor diet, lack of sleep, sun and pollution exposure.

Controlling Your Genetic Expression

What influences your health outcome?

  • Your Genetic's                               35%
  • Health care Providers                       5%
  • Nutrition & Lifestyle Choices           60%

By American Heart Association News

A healthy lifestyle was found in four studies to lower the rate of heart attacks and other cardiovascular events, even in people genetically predisposed to heart disease.

Your The Cure

Fighting Cardiovascular Disease

The fight against our nations number one killer - cardiovascular disease - needs to focus on prevention.  Strategies that detect risk factors for disease and encourage healthier lifestyles are not luxuries - they're lifesavers.

Not being at a healthy weight is a strain on the hearts of Americans.  More than 35% of adults are over weight or obese, and childhood obesity is affecting 32% of kids.  With obesity a leading risk factor for heart disease and stroke, this epidemic is a serious public health issue that must be addressed.

Beat Depression and Improve Brain Function

Rhodiola Rosea also known as "golden root" is an adaptogen herb

Adaptogens are a group of plants that can help your body adapt to physical, chemical, and environmental stress and rhodiola is one of the most effective in this family.

Rhodolia has been proven to have four major health benefits including:

  1. Burning Belly Fat 
  2. Increasing Energy and Athletic Performance
  3. Lowering Cortisol
  4. Fighting Depression and improving Brain Function

To day I want to focus on number 4.  In today's high stress environment there has been a huge increase in depression and too often doctors put them on anti-depressant medications when there is a more natural solution that avoids many of the alarming side effects that people on anti-depressant medications are having.

The Link Between Proper Nutrition and Superior Health

For many years, the medical and scientific communities didn't believe that there was such a direct link between proper nutrition and superior health.

Then nutrition studies came along and we began learning how important vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are to good health.  Through studying disease conditions, results showed that perhaps most people didn't get what they needed from their food choices and became deficient which led to illness.  This is when researchers found out how important it is to eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and high quality protein sources to maintain physical, mental and emotional health.

How Do You Choose Nutritional Supplements?

Secrets of Supplements

Since research continues to demonstrate the power of a PLANT BASED DIET as the key to achieving optimal health, how do you fill any gaps in your diet that your not getting from the food you actually consume each day? To me the answer should be logical, choose PLANT BASED supplements. 

That means the ingredients of those supplements have to come from a FARM, just like the fruits and vegetables that your trying to supplement.  All the factors required in nutrition are nearly always found in plant substances.

Soil Depletion

The fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties most of us get today.  The main culprit in this disturbing nutritional trend is soil depletion.

Modern intensive agricultural methods have stripped increasing amounts of nutrients from the soil in which the food we eat grows.  Also efforts to breed new varieties of crops that provide greater yield, pest resistance and climate adaptability have allowed crops to grow bigger and more rapidly, but their ability to up take nutrients has not kept pace with their rapid growth.

The Importance of Omega 3's

Are you eating the recommended two servings of fish per week?

The scientific evidence supporting the health benefits of long-chain omega-3 EPA and DHA is impressive and is continually increasing

The American Heart Association recommends that healthy adults eat at least two servings of fish per week. particularly fatty fish, which are rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.  They also reported some people need more EPA and DHA than can be readily achieved through diet alone, and in those cases supplementation should be considered.

The Ultimate Dietary Supplement

If I could only choose one supplement for my health it would be this one.
Nutrilite "Double X" supplement helps fill nutrient gaps with an unrivaled combination of essential vitamins, minerals, andphytonutrients to promote healthy immune, cardiovascular, and nervous systems, along with healthy eyes and skin.  Nutrilite "Double X" supplement provides 22 vitamins and minerals, 18 of them at 100% or more of the daily value.  That's more than leading competitors.

Eat Healthy

Set The Pace For A Healthier Lifestyle

The food choices you make throughout the day impact your ability to maintain optimal health.  Unfortunately, our busy lifestyles and the temptation of unhealthy indulgences make it difficult to eat what we should.  But if you want to maintain optimal health, remember that it takes more than calories to fuel a healthy body.  That means being mindful of your food choices and the variety of your diet.

Supplements Help Fill Nutrient Gaps

8 out of 10 people aren't eating enough fruits and vegetables, which means most people have a nutrient gap between what they eat and what they need.

The American Medical Association and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration both support using supplements to fill this gap

You should take supplements if any of the following is true:

What Are Phytonutrients
