7 Vital Back To School Health Tips

1-Good Food – A nourished body = a healthy and smart kid!
In order to navigate the twists and turns of school, nutrition is the key to healthy, smart kids.  Kids should understand the difference between good foods and bad foods.  Many use the traffic light model with success. “Green light foods are good for you. Eat as much of them as you like. These include fruits, vegetables, whole grain products, nuts, organic meats, and dairy. Red light foods should not be eaten, like corn syrup, diet foods with Nutrasweet, caffeine products, and foods with artificial colors and flavors. Yellow light foods are those you should slow down on, like desserts, processed white flour products, and juice.”

Avoid Heat stroke and heat exhaustion with simple Remedies

You may not know this but the Gulf Stream is no longer circulating its warm waters to Europe (Since 28 of May 2010; confirmed by NASA satellite). The reason for this is that Mother Nature does not approve of the way the BP oil spill has been handled with toxic flocking agents – sinking the oil, rather than using microbes to eat up the oil.

We are now keeping all this excess heat here in the US.  This is why we are experiencing record breaking heat waves from Southern California right on through Middle America, and to the East coast.  When was the last time you saw 100°F temperatures across Mid America? This is why I decided to write an article about avoiding and remedying heat stroke and heat exhaustion.  This is particularly for the elderly and those who have never experienced 100°F plus weather.

Is Your Body Inflamed?

Hundreds of illnesses are caused by chronic inflammation.  Rather than recognizing and correcting the sources of inflammation, modern medicine has classified them as unique and unrelated, when in fact they are all products of the same underlying imbalances in the body.  Illnesses such as fibromyalgia, lupus, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, and others stem from inflammation.

“Inflammation is your body’s response to stress — whether from your diet, lifestyle or environment.” “Think of what happens when you catch a cold. You may experience inflammation in the form of a fever as your body heats up to eradicate the effects of the invading virus.” “This kind of inflammation is good, but the modern epidemic of chronic, low-grade inflammation destroys the balance in your body. When your body’s systems experience a constant inflammatory response, you become more susceptible to aging and disease.” (Source 2006 article by Body Ecology.)

Some of the primary causes of chronic inflammation:

Are Airport Scanners Causing Cancer?

Contact your local, state, and federal representatives and tell them to stop this dangerous practice. It is estimated that 100 travelers per year get cancer from this “low level radiation.”

We need to band together to ban this invasive, demeaning activity. How many bombers has it stopped? It did not stop the Detroit bomber who used powdered explosives. Fewer people die in the air then almost any other cause of death from transportation. This is not about keeping us safe.  This is about destroying our civil liberties.

Turmeric Has Many More Secrets

Turmeric has many more Natural Secrets…

Did you know that turmeric helps the body handle cholesterol build up in your liver and arteries? According to a study done in 2005, rabbits that ate a high fat diet showed significantly less fat “buildup” (cholesterol) in their arteries and livers.

Candida Relief

Candida or Mold Issues?

Do you have a Candida or mold infection or allergy? Symptoms include sneezing, congestion, itchy or watery eyes, a persistent cough, or a tickle at the back of your throat. Do you clear your throat a lot? Even asthma can result in those who do not normally have asthma. Do you crave sweets or feel chronically fatigued? Do you suffer from brain fog? Headaches? Dandruff? These can all be symptoms of mold allergy responses.

If you have found mold in your bathroom or bedroom (the most likely places), you will need to handle its effects. You can also find mold in air conditioning systems, face creams, basements, and anywhere you smell a “musty odor.” Many people think that if they just clean up the mold in their environment, then their work is done, but mold throws off the delicate balance of the body. And where you have a mold exposure, you have a Candida overgrowth. They go hand in hand.

On the outside of the body, you can find mold or fungus on finger or toenail infections, thrush, and bumpy skin. If you have bumpy skin, you can kill the mold colonies with apple cider vinegar on a cotton swab. Unfortunately, most doctors receive very little training in mycology (the study of fungi and their effects) during medical school, often less than veterinarians. As a result, toxic mold exposure, use of antibiotics, swimming in chlorinated pools and other common activities can be overlooked as the cause of a patient’s health problems. Worse, recent studies point to fungus in the body as being the precursor to cancer.

Here are a few of the most common things that contribute to mold problems and Candida overgrowth

Exposure to pesticides. Pesticides kill bugs, including the colony in your gut. You do not have to eat them to be exposed.

Antibiotics. Used to kill disease-causing bacteria, antibiotics are very effective in killing normal, protective bacterial flora throughout the body.

Swimming in chlorinated pools. Copper and Silver Anodes, Salt water, and Chlorine are used in swimming pools and Jacuzzis to kill bacteria and algae. Just as these things kill bacteria in the water, they also kill the body’s normal bacterial flora. This is one of the reasons that I have designed my Oxygen Harmony™ pool system. It reduces chemical use by 90%. Visit Ideal Earth Water for more information.

Alcohol use (most often beer, wine and vodka). Frequent use of alcohol encourages the growth of yeast in the body.

Mercury and mercury fillings (silver amalgam fillings). Mercury has antibacterial, fungal-promoting effects.

Use of corticosteroids that turn off normal immune reactions leave a person without their natural defenses against fungi

Birth Control pills, injections, or patches. Women’s bodies naturally experience highs and lows of various hormones. Birth control pills, injections, or patches cause these hormones to become even, which encourages fungal growth. This may be why so many women on the pill experience more yeast infections than women who use other contraception.

Natural Remedies

If you need to handle mold in your environment, then send me an email and request my free MOLD Report. It will help you to clean up the mold without using chlorine bleach.

When I was a volunteer in 2005 after hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, exposure to mold almost cost me my life, but I did some experimentation and healed myself. Since then, my wife and I have researched and tested anddeveloped our Candida Relief™ program. It rapidly helps return the body’s balance without a restrictive diet!

Save Your Money and Save Your Health!

How fresh is the produce in your supermarket?  When you consider that the produce has to be harvested by the farmer, then travel to a middle man, then possibly to another middle man, then to a refrigerated supermarket warehouse, then  finally to your grocery store, you realize that the expensive produce that you spent good money for is probably at least 1-2 weeks old.  Compare this to walking out into your garden and harvesting a sweet ripe tomato or sugar snap peas that are mouth wateringly sweet and bursting with nutrition.

Swimming In Pesticides? Healthy Alternative

In Europe chlorine has not been used in pools for 25 to 50 years! Finally Americans are becoming aware of the dangers of swimming in chlorinated pools! Unfortunately, copper and silver systems and the salt systems are not healthy either. When one swims in a copper or silver pool, one is basically swimming in PESTICIDES. Don’t be fooled by the salt systems, as they are chlorine systems, splitting salt (sodium chloride) into sodium and chloride. Page down for my healthy alternative…..

How is your gut like a meadow?

If you think of your digestive tract like a lush meadow, it is easy to understand why it is so important to listen to our bodies when they tell us when something is wrong. By eating whole foods and consuming natural herbs and tonics such as Rest Easy™ and Inner Garden™, we can handle small problems instead of masking them until they turn into big problems.
