How to Lower Cholesterol Naturally

According to a study published June 10, 2013 in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings antidepressants and cholesterol-reducing drugs are the two categories of prescription drugs most widely used among patients ages 50 to 64, and their use is likely to increase as people age into Medicare eligibility.

One in four boomers has a statin prescription.

The study, by a team of researchers from the Mayo Clinic and the Olmsted Medical Center, looked at a year’s worth of prescription drug data from the clinics’ Minnesota home county. Within the boomer age group, 30% of men and 22% of women had prescriptions for “antilipemic agents,” the category of drug that includes the cholesterol-fighting drugs statins (among which Lipitor and its generic equivalents are the biggest sellers). That made such drugs the most widely used medications in that age group. Meanwhile, 26% of women and 13% of men had prescriptions for antidepressants during the period studied.

3 Signs You Need A Sugar Detox

3 Signs You Need A Sugar Detox

Does Sugar Have a Hold on You?

1. Once you start eating sugary foods, you just can’t stop.

This is almost a sure sign you have an addiction to sugar. Here’s the scenario: you intended to eat only one piece of your favorite sweet, but once you finish that, you want more. And that isn’t enough. Before you know it, you’ve eaten the whole thing and you still want more. Like a morning-after hangover, you have feelings of regret immediately after downing the last piece.

2.  You crave simple carbs.

Though not sweet, you crave bread, bagels, muffins, croissants, white rice, potatoes, or crackers. Starchy foods are a must have food. These foods turn to sugar easily and feed your sugar addiction.  They’re just sneakier because they aren’t sweet.

3.    You eat sweets until you feel sick.

Have you ever eaten so many sweets that you get symptom such as headaches, gas, bloating, foggy brain, fatigue, irritability, or sleepiness?  These can be symptoms of a sugar hangover. How often do you do this? You know that bingeing on sugar will make you feel this way but you do it anyway. The short-term mini high of eating the cake, cookies, or chocolate blinds you from the unpleasant aftereffects.

Are You Ready to Kick the Sugar Habit?

Just because you ditch sugar, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy something sweet that’s good for you.

Eye Floaters

Eye Floaters

How to Heal Them

Health professionals usually say there is nothing that can be done to heal eye floaters; you’ll just have to live with them for the rest of your life. Floaters may indicate damage to the vitreous fluid of the eye. Very few doctors offer hope for this condition. 

This was not true for me.  I once had so many floaters that on a sunny day the various shapes floating by when I gazed into the light reminded me of a star-studded night. I started seeing large numbers of floaters when I was a child. But I have totally cured myself and see them no more.

6 Benefits of 30 -Day Detox

1. Colon Detox for Improved Gut Health

 As you cleanse your digestive system with juices, you’ll get rid of colon waste that’s been building up maybe for months or even years. You can do just a juice fast or you can incorporate a complete colon cleanse. By cleaning out your digestive track , you’ll get rid of gas, bloating and mucoid plaque. As your digestion improves; you’ll absorb more nutrients from your juicing, supplements and your food because the majority of your nutrients are absorbed in the upper intestinal tract. As you improve the way you process food, you’ll gain more energy, better sleep and a happier mood. Colon detox helps to improve your friendly gut bacteria thus improving your overall digestive health. It is also very helpful to flatten your stomach.

2. Optimize Your Liver Health

The liver is our primary detox organ. It must filter everything from our blood. Fast food, junk food, sweets, fried foods, alcohol, coffee, animal fats and pesticide sprayed produce all impact the liver. It’s our hardest working organ. It can get completely overwhelmed with gunk. Over time, it can develop stones just like the gallbladder along with a lot of congestion. It won’t be able to process hormones or produce enzymes like before. During it’s most active time around 3 am when it works the hardest, it may wake you up. A juice fast and liver cleanse provides an excellent rest for the liver along with an abundance of antioxidants that help to bind up the toxins.

If you do a complete liver cleanse with the Internal Cleanse Kit,  you’ll have products to also work on routing out parasites at the same time you do a liver cleanse, Almost everyone has them these days. They’re stealing some of your best nutrients causing you to be hungrier and more tired. They also release mucous that contributes to body congestion. I thought sinus problems with drainage was something I just had to battle with in life until I did a series of parasite and liver cleanses. What a difference the parasite cleansing made. That problem for me is gone now—COMPLETELY GONE.

3. Cleanse Your Skin, Blood, Lymphatic System and Lungs

When you purify your blood and skin, your skin will glow more. Everything will hum along in your body like a well tuned car. The skin is your largest organ of elimination. It reflects your internal state. And don’t forget your lymphatic system and lungs. The lymphatics are your garbage collection system. It’s imperative that you cleanse this system because it has no pump. It can get very stagnant and congested.  And how about your lungs? They are important organs of elimination that need cleansing with herbs that rejuvenate them. These herbal tinctures are part of your clean kit. This is good prevention as many people who have never smoked are getting lung cancer due to toxins. Make sure you get rid of lung toxins too.

4. Healthy, Happy Weight Loss

Detoxing can help you lose a few extra pounds quickly. It’s also helped many people get rid of cravings and reboot their metabolism. Would you like to look like you just returned from a spa vacation? You can. Detoxing can clear out the toxins that make you look tired and stressed. And, while many people are dealing with colds and flu, you can be sailing into super health with a strong immune system and a boatload of energy. When you juice fast and embark on the 30-day detox, which includes 3 days of juice fasting to kick off, you give your body a chance to clear toxins from fat cells. With all the nutrients from the juices, your body can let them go because there are plenty of antioxidants to carry them out of your system. This way they won’t harm your organs and tissues. Many people have found that they lose weight effortlessly with a juice cleanse and detox. You can hit the reset button and lose the holiday weight. Cleanse your pathways of elimination and you’ll see the weight loss you want and the health that propels you into your future.

5. Get Your Rosy Glow Back

You’ll look more refreshed when you do a  cleanse. Do you ever get up in the morning feeling tired and achy, but after a hot shower, you feel much better? That’s a quick reset. Cleansing is a deluxe reset for your entire system. If you want to turn things around quickly for your face, this is your opportunity for the best change you could imagine. So out with the junk and the toxins and in with the pure fresh juices and healthy foods along with the cleansing herbs.

6. Mental Clarity Increased

Juice fasting helps the brain. That may be why so many people who do a juice fast tell me their cognition and mental clarity improved. What is going on? A recent study found that an overnight fast actually heightened decision-making skills of the participants. This supported another study, which found that the brain relied less on glucose availability after a prolonged period of fasting. And it doesn’t end there. Many people have reported that their mood improved, depression took flight, and they were happier throughout the day. Studies have noted that short-term fasting could boost positive emotions such as the sense of achievement, reward, pride and self-control.
